After the crazy busyness and hectic of the past weeks, I am enjoying it even more more to sit on my patio and let my inspiration flow for writing my post. I was just so relaxed that I emptied my spirit… and kept in empty… lol. So, I decided to pick a card getting inspired.
I used the Gateway Oracle Cards, by Denise Linn, again. The card I picked is this one:
You can trustfully open up to life and its moves, and serenely believe that everything will be taken care of. There is nothing I am missing, nothing I need to know. In alignment with all that is, you feel that you are a part of the big whole.
I remember those ball games we played in school. There is group A and B. Group A is divided into two groups that are playing together. Group B is placed between the two groups. Group A must shoot the players of Group B (the middle-group) with the ball. When a player gets hit, that one is out. BUT if the ball is caught instead, they can shoot back at the players of group A. The winner is the person who is left (regardless of which group).
Life can throw brick after brick at us. But it is not always in resistance, deficiency, ignoring, or sidestepping to survive the bombardment. Sometimes it is in catching the bricks and creating something from it. We can either get hurt by being hit and feel sorry for ourselves. Or we can check that weak point it met. We can turn away from life, get bitter, desperate, and refuse to deal with it. Or we can trust that whatever comes our way leads our way. The second options are those that keep us strong and make us even stronger. That one that helps us over sad times, over losses, over unexpected changes.
Nothing that happens is intended as punishment. It can be a consequence of how we used to live. It can be a tool to prepare us for something really great. Or it can simply be one of those events that lead us to people or situations that we would not have met otherwise. Detours are usually not a way gone in vain, but to collect something very important. NOTHING is ever in vain! It may not be easy in terms of the task we have to accomplish. But we can rely on being guided. The more openly we follow this path, the better, faster, and stronger we will walk it. Just compare it to a path in the forest. You have to keep your eyes open to avoid stumbling or missing a branch.
Grace is there, ALWAYS there! It may not feel that way in the beginning. But in trusting in the guidance, we are better connected to a wisdom (our inner wisdom) that keeps us steadfast. The spirit of grace will empower confidence in ourselves. Once that happens – you know – nothing can stop us. No hurdle can ever break us. No river can ever keep us from reaching the opposite shore. Be still, open up to grace, let it flow, let yourself flow, and become one with what is in order to create what will be. Will we always find out why things needed to happen? No, not always. But very often we will. And even if not: The awareness and experience that grace is omnipresent suffices to assure that all will be well. You are not a lone or forgotten warrior.
In Love and Light!
On a sidenote: What I wrote above was inspired by the drawn card, but went in a different direction than the meaning written in the guide book. It seems that this message should be shared – thanks to the grace that has guided me through the inspiration.
