Day 3: 7♥
The card of unconditional Love. Real Love, the love that created the Universe; you & me.
The card of excepting others where they are, as who they are and not making one’s life depend on what others do, say or believe.
This is a central issue going on in a global way right now, isn’t it?
The first questions asks: Where in my life is unconditional love abundant?
My monkey brain tries to think of the people who love me unconditionally. While I’m lucky to have those who do—this question needs to be asked at a higher level because the answer creates such a different perspective (which is the whole point of doing this challenge!)
Love is the epitome of Abundance.
It is because of this love that we have abundance.
ALL of us have this love IN abundance. There is never a time when this love doesn’t exist (no matter how scary the world can look or feel).
Every person IS this love at their core. We are ‘pure positive love’ (as Abraham says) when we come in and once we leave. It is all the stuff we encounter that makes us feel and think that our love is limited, or should be hoarded, or denied due to not being worthy enough, or held back out of fear.
This Love – the real deal that flows infinitely through ALL – can never be stopped, does not pick only a few, does not judge, does not rationalize or expect. It simply IS. Nothing can destroy it, or diminish it.
So, the answer to my first question is: EVERYWHERE!
Second question: How can I give more in the area of unconditional love? Wowzers…let’s not beat around the bush Universe!
This won’t be a one paragraph answer for me. This will be an ongoing list. I’ll express just a few here:
- Patience (with myself and others – we’re all doing our best)
- Always seeing and expecting the best from myself and others. This might seem like it contradicts the fact that unconditional love doesn’t expect others to be a certain way. This is about seeing others in their highest place. You get what you expect.
- Don’t hold back in giving love. I tend to hold back until I receive the signal from the other person, or I wait until they initiate. I’m not talking about romantic or sexual offerings. This can mean compliments, taking the initiative to get to know someone or just to reach out if it feels I’m to do so. This is a big challenge for me as an introvert and a Sensitive!
The third question encompasses the above and will be an ongoing list.
But the coolest thing about working with this card in the topic of Abundance?
What you focus on expands. Focus on unconditional love and it expands in your life.
Realizing this was what allowed me to come out of the severe depression that I had my entire life. It created that solid foundation for me to begin to understand why I suffered from depression and to heal it.
The Universe IS Love. You are Love. I am Love.
I’m going to go sit in the sun and let that statement sink into me!
