Love is all I bring
The title of today's storytelling comes from the lyrics of an obscure 70s song given to me by the universal comms team.
"Uptown top ranking" , by Althea and Donna, was a hit in 1977 when I was just 9 years old.
The line that jumped out was
"Love is all I bring ", a reminder that no matter what the question, Love is always the answer.
Which brings us to our first card today the knight of cups. ( Cups representative of the water element and of feelings and emotions)
What jumps out at me today is the thin veil of energy and the red roses.
The red rose brings the energy to encompass love and compassion to see the beauty that is within and around us.
Helping us stay centered and heart spaced through change. By giving us the confidence and ability to let go of anything that isn't for our highest good. The red roses bring manifestation, abundance and insight.
It gives us the ability to transform negative emotions to positive. It allows us to trust, to love, to forgive. It allows us to release tension, trauma and feelings of doubt.
It appears we are receiving many messages from our higher self, universe and our ancestors today. A message of love, both for ourselves and others.
Our second card today is the 4 of Pentacles ( pentacles representative of the earth element and manifestation)
What stands out for me today is the woman clutching her purse to her chest. As though all of her earthly belongings are contained inside. She holds it against her solar plexus chakra.
The solar plexus is our power centre between the lower and upper energy centres. It is the seat of self-confidence, self-esteem and self-worth. I'm urged to say that it is not our physical possessions, nor our earthly wealth that give us our sense of stability, but our strength of character and heart ❤.
Our final card today is the Queen of cups ( cups representative of the water element and of feelings and emotions)
In the card we see this queen waist deep in the seas of emotion. An arch of water rises above her and her arms and face are tilted towards the heavens. She appears in total surrender to her surroundings. She is deeply in tune with the universe.
The turquoise colour surrounding her signifying a time of deep spiritual growth and change. Her dress of orangey red showing she is safe and open to the newness of this transition. We can also see a slight violet hue upon her left . She is spiritually guided through her intuitive senses right now.
So today is a message of love and hope through a time of transformation.
What we may have given great importance to in the past is falling away and new values are replacing old out worn ones.
Perhaps we are reminded that life is like a river.... we can flow with it and relax, or we can try with all our might to swim against it and simply exhaust every last drop of energy.
Today then is perhaps also a message of surrender .
"Surrender is faith that the power of Love can accomplish anything even when you cannot forsee the outcome".
