Mermaids and DolphinsHere is an angel card to guide your day. I am using my favorite deck, Doreen Virtue’s “Magical Mermaids and Dolphins.” Whenever you may read this, the message is for you now.

Set Your Sights Higher – Increase your standards, and expect more for yourself. Don’t settle!

Let Yourself Receive – Allow others to give you loving care. Receive without guilt or apologies.

And my reading for you – Well, yay! I love a double-card day! And these are connected very closely. Do you see how accepting and receiving are integral to the reading? I’m not going to read these separately, like I normally would, because they do go together today.

First, let’s talk about “receive without guilt.” Now, guilt is pretty powerful. And we are all up to our necks in it. Personally, I do make a conscious effort not to let guilt overtake me. I also like to say that “guilt is fattening”–and if that is true, I must have been extremely guilty the past few months, as I gained a lot of weight!

So… when someone offers you a compliment, something simple like, “Your hair looks nice”, what do you say? Do you duck your head and ignore it? Say, “thanks”, but don’t mean it? Smile and refuse to believe that this is true?

Start there. Start with accepting a compliment with “thank you” and a smile–and mean it! Pretend, if you can’t truly believe it, that the compliment is true, that the person saying it absolutely feels that way about you. Later, say the same compliment to yourself in the mirror. Oooh, that’s deep. Try it.

Okay, that’s the lecture on receiving (You really should read more here.), so what does this have to do with right now? Right now, you are looking down at your shoes, thinking you don’t deserve any better than what you have right now. And these cards tell you that is absolutely untrue.

Hold your head up today, notice your favorite things in your life right now, and remind yourself that you are worthy of love, joy, and abundance!
