Messages from your Angels Oracle Cards, by Doreen Virtue
“I am the Angel of Marriage, and I am assisting you right now.”
Have you ever noticed that often the squabbles that we have in our current relationships have nothing to do with what is currently happening in our current relationships? That often our disagreements and discomfort come from our projections, or even the anticipation that the past will repeat itself? I know I have said it before, but it begs to be repeated: “Life isn’t one thing after another, it is the same thing, over and over and over.” When we don’t take time to heal our past relationships, those unresolved issues will flare up and wreak havoc again and again until we take the awareness and do the work to break the cycle. I have found, even in my own marriage that I anticipate a response from my husband through the context of how I have been responded to in a past relationship, and then when he acts or responds completely differently I realize that I haven’t given him the benefit of a clear slate, or a clear heart. When we expect a response from our partners based on our past experiences, we are not living in the present moment – we are living and reliving the past. Which clearly isn’t fair to us or our partners. This week we are being encouraged to clear our hearts of old wounds and painful experiences so that we can enjoy our relationships in the present moment. We can do this through many different avenues, as we each heal in different ways. What we could consider would be counselling, emotional freedom technique, journalling, life coaching or even just confiding in a safe person. Let’s give ourselves permission to heal, and then give ourselves the gift of letting go of the past.
Have courage my friends,
