Around this time of year, there’s usually plenty of Being Thankful posts to be found. This has definitely been on my mind, what with the holiday and all.
But even more than that (because you all know how much I dislike being forced into a jovial or festive state), I have begun to gradually and oh-so-cautiously remove a few of my self-imposed restrictions. I am peeking my head out, but only in safe directions.
For me, right now, it’s become even more than merely the state of acknowledgment. Our message echoes this, it has an intended focus of deep and sincere . . .
To be well-balanced, it is said that we must be an even mix of all the Tarot suits, all the elements, as well as equal portions give/take. We must be able to receive, to accept, and to be able to understand the difference.
Of course, in real life, none of us are perfect, or exactly well-balanced. We struggle and we work through our challenges. We work towards the understanding of gifting and welcoming.
The trick is to notice and appreciate each level, each accomplishment, each individual we connect with. THOSE are the true measures of success.
Because, by feeling and honouring our simple gestures and tiny steps, we become more capable of even larger blessings, lessons, and gratitude.
On our card altar, in validation of the same idea, this draw brings us a perfect affirmation.
“Joy ~ 24
Even just a simple smile can go a long way to spreading joy in our world. Choose to focus more on those things which bring you happiness and you will find you naturally begin to radiate this energy out into all of creation.
The more joy you send out, the more you’ll find you have to be joyful for – this is a law of the universe.
By living with joy, I magically spread light into the hearts of my sisters and brothers everywhere.”
