Here’s a thing. Just as I was all resigned and accustomed to our autumnal weather being a factor (yes, riding while getting drenched is not fun, but it’s do-able with the correct clothing) I received some harsh (and painful-to-the-budget) bad news:
my raingear is leaking.
This will be what, pants number 2 or 3? We can’t afford this, people! I was counting on these garments to get me through the damn season. Blergh. I’m just unhappy now. And when I got home today, I was NOT dry.
Let’s just move on to the metaphysical, it’s much more fun. And positive. Always with the positive. Today’s message is a good one.
Accept these blessings in the spirit of which they were intended:
as abundant gifts.
When I heard this I immediately thought of all the things we do easily, and take for granted. Many of us walk, unaided. We speak and hear. We touch and smell. We are able to express emotion and verbalize opinions. All of these? Gifts!
Standing at our card altar (I have very strong legs and I can stand!) I was directed to reach over and see what the Archangels had to tell us. Not surprisingly, they confirm what we’ve been hearing lately.
“Teaching and Learning ~
‘Keep an open mind, and learn new ideas. Then, teach these ideas to others.’
‘You are a spiritual teacher and an avid learner. Learning and teaching are linked in a perfect cycle, in which information comes to you when you need it. Teach others about the topics that awaken your passions. The more you teach, the more your lessons are reinforced within yourself.
Be open to sharing new ideas, and learning about topics that aren’t in your immediate sphere of interest. Your students will teach you in many ways, too. Trust in your teaching and learning abilities, as your mind is one with the Divine Mind of God. You are an intelligent and wise being. Know that it’s safe in this lifetime for you to be outspoken in your teachings.’
Working with Archangel Zadkiel:
Zadkiel is the ultimate spiritual professor. He’s patient, kind, and has access to all knowledge. He’s widely known for his ability to help human memory and function. If you need to remember or memorize information, ask Zadkiel to assist. Anything you need to know, Zadkiel is glad to teach you. Just ask him questions in order to elicit his help.
Sometimes Zadkiel uses the Socratic method of teaching, which means that he’ll lead you so you can learn for yourself. Being observant of patterns in everything you see, hear, and think is the best way to benefit from Zadkiel’s teachings.”
Looking past some of the unfortunate aspects of this illustration, I am captivated by the large and radiant wings featured so prominently. With that vibrant coloring, and this uplifting message, the entire attitude of this draw is empowering.
