Acceptance – A Life-Changing Attitude

For today, I choose to pick a card of my GATEWAY oracle cards by Dennis Linn. And what an inspiring card I picked. Please, interpret the card as it feels for you. Below, I am sharing how the card inspired me.

Who wants sad things to happen in their lives? Who wants changes of things they love as they are? Nobody wants it, but they happen anyway.

Life is a constant interaction between all energies around us. If my neighbor falls and needs to go to the hospital, it could affect me. I may need to drive her there and even stay for a while. That changes my original plan for the day. I may be late for making dinner and may need to cancel a client’s appointment (and lose money). At the same time, I may read something in the hospital that generates new ideas. I may talk to people I may have never met otherwise and make new connections that could even support my therapy practice.

What I want to say is, when even something happens that we call “bad”, “challenging” or “inconvenient”, it happens due to a greater context. it is the result of what happened before but, at the same time, it is part of a greater plan for the future. So, in only accepting what is, we recognize the chances of that happening. Because then, we see it as something that is happening to expand the horizon. Why should anything happen in vain? It would not make sense in this perfectly organized universe. It is a reminder of the universe: It’s time! Everything is connected and meant for personal or collective development. Just look at what the pandemic (as one single trigger) has brought for personal and collective developments. That’s why we may not always understand why things happened. We need to accept it anyway since we cannot change what already happened.

Only in acceptance, you are in the moment and centered that you can look beneath the event. Resistance dims the view. Because you are struggling with what was. It makes you even hold on to what you don’t want and keeps you from moving past it. Acceptance doesn’t mean you resign and can’t work on a change; because you always can and shall do it. Every experience supports your development and spiritual evolution. But only in this awareness, its purpose is fulfilled fluently.

Acceptance is the pre-condition and springboard to going from what is to where you want to be.
Where you are in this moment is not the end of the journey but only the beginning.

In Love and Light

The purpose of my blog is to inspire and shine a light on the beauty and power of the wonderful being inside your body. You came into this world to share what only you can give. Remember who you really are, conquer the world the way you always wanted to, and become the blessing to us all that you were meant to be.


Erika, nicely done. We are all interrelated in some fashion, sometimes to strangers we come across. I relate it to finding someone’s lost wallet or purse and going out of your way to get back to its owner, even if there is no acknowledgement whatsoever that you did that good deed. Keith


Yes, indeed. The most superficial encounters are not just coincidences. I believe that they all are happening for a reason and in a greater context. We may not even notice them but they can be the ignitial start for something bigger. Thank you very much, Keith!
