ACCEPTING WHAT IS
Today's Affirmation: "I accept and embrace my inner majesty."
Card Meaning: Accept your life in all its configurations. Know that every moment, situation and event has profound value... even if it doesn't seem like it. Accept your inner majesty. Be present. You are magnificent and wonderous beyond measure. Embrace all parts of yourself.
What the Universe wants you to know: It is an act of both power and faith to love, honor, and accept what is. At times it can be challenging to truly accept what's occuring in your life. When you do so, however, you affirm that there is a plan for your life and that everything is working out for your highest good. Accepting "what is" doesn't mean that you can't work to change it, because you can. It does mean that there is gentle, yet profound awareness that every experience can support your highest good and spiritual evolution.
If there is something you just can't accept, start by gently acknowledging the fact that you can't accept it. As you increase your own acceptance in life, this will help others be at peace in their own lives.
Questions to ask yourself and/or journal about:
~Is there anything that I'm not accepting in my life?
~ How can I embrace myself and my life even more?
~Where will my life's journey take me, if I truly honor every aspect of "what is'?
Padma's Commentary: I love that this card came up after yesterday's truth seeking. What did you find? For most of us the truth can be a hard pill to swallow. But what this card is suggesting is that it is ALL PERFECT. Everything that has happened to you good or bad is actually PERFECT. It makes you who you are and YOU are a child of the Universe, here to learn from each and every moment of your existence on this planet we can Mother Earth. This card reminds me of a passage from one of my favorite poems called "Desiderata" and it goes like this:
"Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the Universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the Universe is unfolding as it should."
No matter where you are in life.... it is all about of YOUR journey. And YOU get to take the lessons you have learned along the way and say how the rest of the journey goes. At every given moment we have the power to choose. It all starts will accepting what is so right now and making the next best choice with that you have in the present moment. One foot in front of the other we continue on. Happy accepting and embracing ya'll!
