Abundance, Appreciation & Gratitude

 

“When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.”
― Anthony Robbins

 

In the past when I’ve heard the word abundance, I thought of it as being an embarrassment of riches. As much money as I might want to have, as much great tasting healthy food as I might want to eat and all my needs taken care of. In that I was at least half right. It does mean having as much as is needed or wanted yet its amazing how much the scale slides down. If I can learn to appreciate and savour a walk in the evenings with my dogs or a conversation with either an old friend or someone new and interesting than the definition of an abundant amount of entertainment changes quite quickly. If I stay active and put effort into enjoying my life (even the less than fun parts) then I am less likely to look to food to fill my time or elevate my mood and so the amount of food needed to have abundance changes. If I am grateful for everything that comes my way in life then the chances of me slowing down long enough to experience it increases and I realize that with relatively little, I can be abundantly satisfied
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – March 22 2013

“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you. ”
― Oprah Winfrey

 

If you’re very lucky, you find love in whatever you do. As I experience more and more of life, I find that my capacity for love and enjoyment grows. I realize that that is not necessarily true of all people or even most tho I do have hopes that joy and love may be contagious. I definitely know of people who infect others with their sheer delight in life and I aspire to that.
I have been contemplating today what it means to succeed. Does it mean having enough of the energy that people associate with currency to do what ever whim strikes you? Does it mean a sense of fulfilment and self-actualization that is apart from any material considerations? I believe it is the latter much more than the former. Oh I have nothing against money. It has its uses.Seldom have I seen ownership of a great amount of it producing happiness, quite often quite the contrary.
I will trade in love, joy, abundance and gratitude and will have riches beyond measure
Blessings, G

Tarot Post – Three of Cups

Three of Cups  (Abundance)

G`Three of Cups (revised)

 

Trinity of friends

Powerful energy flows

Abundance ensues

 

Friends, knowing each others hearts and minds
We’ve known the hard parts
and have wandered through alone, together
But now is for fun and joy
This moment we have
each other’s company
overflowing, magical acceptance
that carries through

 

Cups deal with our emotional nature including love, both that as in a relationship between two (and rarely more) people and that of friends and companions. Threes deal with accomplishment, fulfilment and transmission of the energy. In this case the love that has been expressed overflows into a feeling of abundance. So often we think of our lives in terms of scarcity, what is missing and what we may never have. In reality, in this world there is abundance, having that which is needed. Being in the company of those we love, having a good time, we realize this abundance

Astrological Correspondence – Mercury in Cancer – Mercury and Cancer brings a very personal side out of our emotions. We seem in tune with not only what is on the emotional surface of those around us but the undercurrents as well. Mercury in Cancer carries the emotional memory of everything that happens in a relationship but since it is in tune with it, there is not so much the bitterness of the past, but an empathy as well. At times sensitive, these same undercurrents can occasionally throw off Mercury in Cancer and make it overly defensive

This hexagram is comprised of the trigram Joy over that of Wood – There is an implication in it of a beam that is strong and heavy in the middle but weaker on the top and bottom. Now things are great but it is inherently unstable and can ‘crash through’ When we are enjoying ourselves with friends, we are in moments of joy and good times tho eventually our lives and the world come through. We can carry this feeling of enjoyment and the sensitivity to others and our situations  with us as we face whatever day to day crisis may break through.

In a reading, the three of cups can mean a time of enjoying companionship with friends and a time when we feel ourselves in tune with others. This card means quite often that we are allowing ourselves to feel loved and at peace and able to appreciate what comes our way.

Reversed the three of cups can mean that this feeling of camaraderie has disappeared or been blocked. There may be some disappointment or feeling of betrayal by a friend or that trust has been broken
