Each Wednesday I will begin the day by drawing a divination card for inspiration and posting it here.
With a few words from my intuition, I will give you something to think about for your day, and week.
Use the card as a writing prompt, or simply something to reflect on.
*I pick these cards at random, by shuffling a deck, and allowing a card to fall out on its own accord. Whilst shuffling, I ask God to show me what I need to see for this post, and all who read it. It may not resonate with you, and that is OK – this is just my offering to you who reads this, it is sent with love and best wishes. Take what feels right for you, and leave what does not, for another.

Now this one caught me by surprise.
As I read the message that accompanies this card in the guidebook, I realised how perfect it was for me at this time.
As regular readers of this blog will know, I am currently on holiday in Jamaica.
What is it about being away from home that puts you in a reflective mood?
There are a number of people in my life that I need to forgive.
It’s been hard to learn from mistakes, and to forgive the people I’ve made them with.
However we will not be able to move forward in life until we forgive ourselves and others, for the hurt we have experienced.
In the picture – the Angels are whispering words of forgiveness into the ears of a man.
Perhaps this man is still undecided whether to grant forgiveness or not.
Are there people in your life who want to make things right with you – that you are unable to forgive?
Are you struggling to forgive someone who has not even apologised?
The Angels are asking you to search within yourself for the strength to forgive.
Now this does not mean you need to go backwards.
You can forgive and move forwards in a different direction.
The other aspect of this card is about learning from issues and mistakes made in the past.
When someone hurts us, the pain always serves to teach us something we need to learn.
I’ve been learning lately the power of self love, and how important it is not to place others on pedastals.
I’ve been learning how to forgive myself for decisions I’ve made not in my own best interests, and for the mistakes I’ve made in the past.
Love is the key ingredient for forgiveness and learning.
Love for ourselves as well as others.
If we can learn to love ourselves, we will be able to forgive ourselves and learn from the mistakes of the past.
We all make mistakes.
Through learning and forgiving, we can overcome them.
