Did you choose your card, yet?
If you chose Card 1:
Pleasure - Pleasure should be made a priority. Do not forget what makes you happy. Actively seek pleasure. Become more aware of the obstacles to your own pleasure. Life can be overwhelming at times and our rational minds seem to need every available minute of our time to be able to cope with the demands of the everyday.
Even those of us who have more naturally physical natures such as those who participate in sports on a regular basis, are able to turn this activity into primarily a mind game by turning it into competition. A big part of pleasure is letting go. This does not mean surrender as in give up - simply means to hand over all our administration, our stress and our worries.
You have to give yourself permission to delight in your senses. That is why we came to this physical plane. We are physical beings! It is okay to pursue pleasure, to take some time away from the grind and to enjoy our lives. There is no need to put it off, waiting until we deserve it, and there is no need to wallow in self indulgence either. It’s all about balance.
If you picked Card 2:
Humor - There are definitely parts of life that require your serious attention, but you have to learn to have fun. Don’t neglect things that bring you joy or make you laugh. Besides the health benefits to your physical body, your emotional and mental bodies reap huge rewards from the art of joy. Seek out the people who make you feel good about being alive. Avoid cynicism and pessimism. Always look at your cup as being half-full instead of half-empty. Happy people attract happy people.
Energetically, I believe when we experience the lighter emotions such as happiness, contentment, love, joy, and peace, we raise our own vibration in the world. This in turn influences those around us who feed off our energy.
We have choices in all we think, say, and do, so when we find ourselves experiencing lower energies, we can choose to continue along that path, or use the gift of laughter to change it. Weigh the options: will we choose feeling upset and angry, or will we choose laughter and enjoyment? Raphael guides us to the laughter, but the choice is entirely our own. When your inner is shifting and reforming on a deep level, patience, constancy and perseverance are called for. So stay centered, see the humor, and keep the faith.
If you selected Card 3:
Authentic - You are stepping into empowerment in a new way and it is to be honored. Do not allow yourself to be dragged into dramas or power games. You are worth so much more than that. You are tapping into your inner dignity and others may not know how to respond. Some will respond with love and acknowledgment; others with fear and judgment, calling you “too big for your boots” or “high and mighty.” Those are voices of fear, not truth. Be in your dignity and power and keep going. It is the Divine that urges you thus, not the ego. Do not doubt the changes happening within you now - embrace them.
When you let go of self-criticism, and Love what Is, right here and now, it is the gateway to being your own true, authentic and irresistible self. It’s fine to have reasonable goals, particularly when they are concerned with health rather than just with appearance. When we strive for perfection in our looks, and ignore all the inner beauty, we are missing way more than we realize. When we pick ourselves apart, we lose the magic of our being as a Whole. We forget our innate Divinity. We look past the beautiful only to see the flaws.
Appreciate your own worth and value and allow others to do so also. You are inspiring and are living the life of example. Good work.
