In my reading this week I came across a phrase I haven’t seen in a while, but one that I understand and connect with, and sort of missed since it’d been so long. It’s occasionally titled other things, but where I saw the mention, it was referred to as: karmic debt.
It was being used in reference to our relationships, and how we bump up against certain people in our lives (more than once, even), then move on without them. We may have something from our past that needs to be reconciled with these folks, and they with us. It’s a concept that many religions and belief systems adhere to, but call different names.
This was all on my mind as I heard our message this morning, and it made sense that it’s what we would discuss today.
Not every BAD begins or ends with TERRIBLE.
Since we recently touched on the topic of Forgiveness, it can be said that this is another side of that same focus. We often carry guilt or shame which is completely not ours to tote around.
Getting past that attitude involves forgiving ourselves, acknowledging that these are all lessons, and understanding where the once perceived as not-good actions and situations come from. Our starting point is always something we’ve charted, and need to learn.
So many times we can look back, later (much later, in a few cases) and see where the originating emotions come from. And from that vantage point of time we are better able to see that there is no reason for labeling anything “good” or “bad” – great or horrible, it’s all perception.
Standing in front of our card altar earlier, I was directed to leave the regular rotation so that we could experience this message. Because, whatever direction the emotion is headed, as long as we feel it wholeheartedly, well then, our journey is sound and sure.
‘Trust and follow your renewed passion in your love life and career.
Playing it safe can lead to staleness and depression. You have asked for more happiness and definite direction. I’ve lit the flame of passion in your heart to lead and guide you.
It’s safe for you to take risks and follow your heart’s desire. Ask me to be your partner along your path of passion, to guide and nurture you.
When you feel a strong knowingness, alongside a burning passion, pay attention, as this is my way of giving you information about your next step.’

Archangel Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue
is this fabulous box of wonderfulness that Dan and I picked up today.
At the last Home Show there were free samples from the Mountain Rose Herbs booth. Obviously we picked some up. One was loose herbal tea, their own Peace Blend.
Since they are merely across town, I don’t have to pay for shipping if we drop by. The front part of their facility? Holy crap, I want to live there!
