We are heading into the homestretch of the 12 Days of Yule! I cannot believe how fast this has gone; it seems like only yesterday that I wrote my first post. Over the past 2 days we have focused on blessings – how we can count our blessings and how we can be a blessing to others. Today, we will discuss how we can receive blessings.
I must admit that this is extremely difficult. Many people do not like to feel obligated to others, and as such do not receive many of the blessings that the light bestows upon them. It brings up tons of issues; especially our questioning the motives of other people. In some cases, motivations need to be questioned. However, in other cases we are preventing good intentioned people from being a blessing to us.
Let’s face it – everyone has motivations no matter how good intentioned they are. Some of our motivations are unconscious. They key is developing boundaries that prevents you from feeling uncomfortable with the person attempting to be a blessing. When all else fails remember that a person’s past behavior is an indication of the way that they will behave in the future.
Get out your tarot deck. Shuffle your cards thoroughly and ask yourself the following question, “How do I best receive blessings from others?” Fan your cards out and draw a card.
Using the Legacy of the Divine Tarot I pulled The Queen of Cups.
If you listen to my radio shows (Psychic Friends Live and Beyond Worlds) you know that this is my least favorite card in the deck. Although beloved by many tarot readers as the compassionate, loving, nurturing, and caring Queen, I must admit that I question her motivations entirely whenever I am doing a reading that she appears. However, the cards are directing me to integrate some of her qualities into my personality in order to allow other people to be a blessing to me. It could reflect my need to be sensitive to other people’s desire to give or to go with the flow rather than intellectually analyzing everything. After all, part of the circuitry of love is receiving love back from others.
