Our recent messages are beginning to develop a theme. This is always sort of comforting to see.
Right now, we’re being reminded to keep our physical and emotional expenditures on an even keel. All output must equal enough taking in. Disbursement = Receiving. In other words:
Because it’s a time of year which can (very easily and quickly if we aren’t careful) get well and truly out of hand.
There’s a control factor to this, too. The element of “back off” arises as we slip, perhaps, in to a DO IT ALL NOW mentality. This is never in anyone’s best interests. Never.
To check in on ourselves is to bring Self-Care front and center. To stay focused on our most loving and kind Balance is to be there when someone needs us. We’re no good when we’re run down or exhausted.
And how much fun are holidays when we’re feeling taken advantage of or stressed to the point of tears? No fun, that’s how much.
All the Universe is asking us to keep in mind is that we balance the give with the take, the in with the out, the physical with the spiritual.
And on our card altar, this draw is showing us an excellent place to start.
Practice kindness in all your thoughts and deeds – toward yourself, other people, animals, and the environment – and watch the rewards that come you way!’
We often refer to kindness as ‘thoughtfulness.’ Yet, kindness is more correctly described as ‘lovefulness.’
By drawing this card, the fairies hand you the wonderful assignment of looking for opportunities to be kind.
This may mean ‘undercover kindness,’ in which you do anonymous good deeds. Or, it could mean being extra alert for strangers who could us a helpful hand or a thoughtful word.
Kindness can also entail letting someone else win the argument or volunteering for a cause that you truly believe in.
By paying attention to the implications of every thought and action, you begin to develop a kindness habit. Your new energy of kindness attracts new loving friends into your sphere.
As you practice kindness toward animals, plants, and the environment, you develop a closer relationship with nature. More important, when you are particularly kind toward yourself – by thinking about yourself compassionately and by taking time out for yourself – you are rewarded with a deep sense of inner satisfaction and peace.
I am kind, thoughtful, and loving to myself and others.”
