Well, we are starting off a new month, and it seems that we have been making progress. Although it feels like we will encounter some bumps this week, maybe feeling overwhelmed or like your not getting to enjoy life, we are reminded that we are making steady progress. No maybe you haven’t hit the lotto, and maybe things seem a little sucky, even though you have been trying so hard to stay positive. Trying your best is all that matters. Even if you can’t see it now, when you look back in the long run, you’ll see what strides you were making in your life at this time, that will lead you into the future to who you want to be. Sometimes it hard to see all the positives, so that’s why it’s good to sit down and make a list. Make a list of all the positive lessons you have learned, all the things your grateful for, and you’ll quickly surprise yourself to realize how blessed you really are. And how we worry needlessly about nothing.. About perfection.. When it is absolutely unnecessary. We all get along pretty well.. We can find anything to gripe or feel bad about. I am so guilty of this, so I’m sure this is getting directed right at me! I worry about the next thing to worry about. I can’t settle down and relax until everything feels done and perfect… I did this today and cleaned endlessly for hours (to make sure I did everything perfectly!) while the rest of my family enjoyed their day. So for today, if you can, relax. Do something that makes you feel good. Count your blessings. Keep the faith that you are on the right path, and are doing well, and appreciate yourself. Appreciate your need to play and enjoy life. Appreciate that you deserve it just as much as anyone else. Do something today just for you, that makes you happy. I have noticed my irritability level rising in the past few days. I haven’t had much time for myself at all, working full time and having kids. I used to regularly get time to myself, and now I am not getting that nearly at all. I try to take time for myself and do things just for me, but sometimes we need to do even more, not just the minimum. It’s such a mom thing to put ourselves on the back burner constantly. This is reminding us, that we deserve to be happy too. We deserve to have the time to know who we are as individuals, and to know what we like to do for fun. I sometimes feel like I don’t even know anymore. This is exactly the purpose of this card. To remind us play is something that we need, in order to live a balanced life and feel happy. Play comes up in my readings more than any other card.. We ALL can get so caught up in life and all our responsibilities, we neglect the child within ourselves that just needs time to play and have fun. Take the time to nurture that child. The third card again reminds us to have faith and trust. Whatever we are going through now is meant to happen, so we can learn and grow. Everything is really a blessing if you can see it that way.
Steady progress – You drew this card as reassurance that you’re making steady progress. You sometimes harshly compare yourself to others, and feel that you should be farther on your path by now. Yet look how far you’ve come, how many lessons you’ve learned, and how many people you’ve helped! Focus on your progress, instead of expecting perfection from yourself. Each day, take at least one small action step concerning a project that you’re passionate about. You’re on the right path, even if it feels that you’re moving slowly. Praise the light, instead of cursing the darkness. Appreciate yourself.
Play – The Angels see that you need to play, so they sent you this card. You’ve been working and worrying a lot lately, and your soul cries out for fun. Feelings of fatigue, irritability or depression are additional signs that you’re overdue for some playtime. You don’t need to wait until you have a free moment, because you can inject fun and silliness into your day today. Simple pleasures, moments of silliness, laughing with a friend, or watching a funny movie are examples of ways to have fun that don’t require a lot of time or money. Fun and play are necessary parts of life for children and adults. These types of activities help us live healthier lives, and allow us to attain our desires more quickly. Fun is part of living a balanced life. Stop what you’re doing now, and go have fun! Release any guilt about having fun to the Angels. You deserve happiness, pleasure and enjoyment.
Blessing in disguise – The Angels sent you this card to help you recognize the blessing in the midst of an apparent challenge. What you’ve appeared to have lost needed to fall away, and will be replaced with something better. Have no fear for your future, but continue praying and following the guidance that comes to you through repetitive feelings, thoughts, visions and words. Release the need to control and predict the outcome to this situation. Trust.
