Are you familiar with a story (fable, myth, bible tale, buddhist teaching?) that tells of how a closed fist is unable to receive? It says that when we relax our fingers and open our hands, we have changed the body into a receptive form, instead of a battling and closed-off shield.
That’s the general idea of our channeled message today. I had several dreams, one after another after another, that were slightly unsettling. As I was waking up though, and becoming aware of what we were being told, they (it?) made complete sense.
Be cautious of trapped memories,
releasing them is the answer.
The very action of letting go, casting off, liberating any painful (or simply no longer useful) thoughts is a sign to the Universe. This process speaks of open reception, grateful acceptance. And most importantly: lovingkindness to ourselves. Because, we’re worth it.
On our card altar today, the appropriate validation has appeared, along with this serene and captivating illustration. (The color palette here is my absolute favorite.)
Let go of the old guilt, and remember that you’re God’s perfect child!
You’ve been very hard on yourself lately using harsh words toward yourself verbally or mentally. While it’s healthy to hold yourself up to high standards, this card says that you have bordered on self-abuse! Everyone makes mistakes, and it’s normal to feel regret occasionally. What’s most important, though, is how you handle these mistakes.
As you focus on your positive attributes, your self-esteem will increase and your stress level will be diminished. Remember that guilt is the opposite of love. Your guilt doesn’t help anyone or anything, but your Divine love helps everyone, everywhere!
Affirm: I ask that all effects of my mistakes be undone in all directions of time, and I now release all guilt completely. I love my true self, from top to bottom.”
(Substitute out any words that don’t work for you, replacing them with more comfortable language. But don’t forget, never toss out the entire message. You are reading it right now for a reason.)
While I don’t believe in mistakes or guilt, I do see that this card has great value. Even if we are not in the habit of trash talking ourselves, we can always use a friendly reminder to be more positive and more kind.
(This afternoon I SHOUTED at several incompetent drivers. Every time, as soon as I’d advised them of what they SHOULD be doing, I then followed up with a nice loud round of: lovingkindness, lovingkindness, LOVINGKINDNESS, DAMMIT!)
