Six of Cups  Memories, may be beautiful and yet...

Satiety,  Pleasure, Happy memories

This card is connected to memories, looking back to past events and relationships, it refers to our youth or our earliest memories. It can herald the arrival of a lover from the past.

 The six of Cups is a delightful and peaceful card. It marks a happy time. You are feeling good, peaceful and happy. The card takes us back to our past memories of happiness. We look upon these memories with dreamy, romantic feelings.

When we get stuck in this rose colored dreaminess, we become sentimental and nostalgic. Clinging to a naivety that shuts out a realistic view on the present. It can lead to dramatic longing for people or places that have gone from out lives. If you’ve experienced a loss, and change always includes loss of some kind, this is a normal stage in the mourning process. It is perfectly appropriate to shed tears over what was loved and lost. May it be a person, pet, or parts of yourself that have gone from your life.

Take a journey into the past but make sure you come back with a renewed zest for the reality of life as it is now. By connecting to your inner child you can heal past hurt. You can comfort the child, explain what happened or even teach it life skills that you’ve learned along the way.

In a relation this card can mark a a time where you feel save, protected and loved. The dreamy romantic quality of the card is at its best. You feel comfortable with each other. Love flows, building trust and surrender. If you’ve had a rough childhood, these experiences are touched and healed. If only because you’ll be able to allow yourself experiences of happiness and trust that might be new to you. You’ll be open to the tenderness and good intentions that your partner has towards you. A hurtful past  influences our ability to trust, we need these positive experiences to learn how trust feels and looks like, being an adult.
Working with the inner child is very beneficial when this card shows up.
It points us to our responsibility to integrate our childhood experiences with our mature self. To loose the naivety and keep a sense of innocence even if we are weathered through walking our path.

If you’ve ended a relation this card points to the phase where healing comes from peacefully remembering the happiness that was part of the relation too. By allowing ourselves to reflect on the happiness that we experienced, we begin to heal. It brings us closer to accepting the reality as it is. Even though it leads us to acceptance, it is not always an easy phase. Memories about the happy feelings, the dreams that were shared, the romance: it can take you by surprise. All of a sudden there it is, regardless of all the reasons why you broke up. The memories that put a smile on your face but pull on your heart strings.
Shining a light on the one thing you cannot let go off. It may have been the easy talks, the wonderful sex, the intimacy or simply the happy times in the relationship.
 Right before you are finally ready to move on, these happy memories can throw you off balance.
 Getting back in the dating game can be scary, bringing to light the insecurities we carry. Am I good enough, attractive enough, will I be able to withstand the ‘judgement’, will I be lovable for someone new? 
Of course we draw back on past love that lifted us above those insecure feelings. Let the memories be a reminder that love is possible for you. Keep the good stuff and heal what hurts.

If loving support was not available to you as a child, it can be difficult to find the words or visualizations that you need to comfort the child within. If you need help or inspiration working with your inner child, let me help you. Sometimes you need the loving eyes of another to see your own beauty within.

Love, Pearl

Memories by Barbara Streisand says it so beautifully:

Like the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures,
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were
Can it be that it was all so simple then?
Or has time re-written every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we? could we?
Memories, may be beautiful and yet
What’s too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it’s the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember...
The way we were...

    Read your piece on memories, still going through the worst period of my life right now, lost the one lady I love so much, not through any personal problems, it was allways money problems, 5 years we were together, she said she had had enough, left and met an italian tourist within 2 days,knew him for couple weeks, I had a no contact rule as even hearing her voice was too much to bear, she rang me after 3 weeks, told me all about the new man, has much money, gave her gifts, money, bought her new clothes, everything I couldnt do for her, told me the man will return in August and they are planning to get married August 3rd, how can this be Pearl, the man she hardly knows, I wished her all the happiness, again my heart was ripped apart, I try to get through each day, so hard, but your piece was really amazing, made the tears flow again, I have read it many times, thank you for writing it, it really is an amazing piece !!
    Kind Regards

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with
    the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    Thank you!

    I believe everything posted was very logical.

    However, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier post title?
    I am not suggesting your content isn’t good, but suppose you added a title that grabbed people’s attention?
    I mean Pearl’s blog

    Can I simply just say what a relief to discover a person
    that truly understands what they are discussing on the
    net. You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light
    and make it important. You have the gift.
