A dear friend of mine gave me a set of Angel Cards as a gift, the first thought I had was how pretty they are and I couldn’t wait to have a look at them and see what the Angels had to say.
Lately, I have been feeling quite strange about my life and my relationship and frankly my self. I have been really quite numb about everything, nothing has been bringing me much joy except sleep. When my friend gave me these Angel Cards it was like a light switching on in my heart and I was excited to get home and ask a question.
Before I tell you what my question was, let me explain how I use the cards. First and foremost the cards do not tell me how to live my life. The cards are there to remind me of things I need to see in myself, things I need to remember to let go because they no longer serve me. The cards don’t say “You have to let go of the trauma your ex caused you.” The cards will say “Surrender and Release”, this reminds me to let go and allow God/Angels/Source/Gaia/Mother Nature/Universe (whatever you call the higher powers) to help you release the old so that it can be replaced by something better. So I do not rely on the cards to tell me my future, I work on my present.
So back to the question I asked, it might sound silly to you but I asked the Universe “How can I love my partner the best way?” while shuffling the Angel Cards, then I took the top card from the deck and turned over Serenity. To be honest at first I thought that’s silly how do I love my partner with serenity? But when I read the little explanation in the booklet it made complete sense. It starts with Peace of mind means feeling secure, and knowing you’re always provided for. It goes on to say more, but I found my answer in these words, in order to love my partner in the best way, I have to love myself in the best way, peace of mind is within me and once I love myself and feel secure in myself, the best love for my partner will flow freely for him. I have to stop worrying that I am not loving him correctly.
So on with the continuous journey of inner work, self love and self discovery.
It’s all love after all…
