The Lovers

The Lovers is a card which holds many, many meanings and is coming to you at exactly the perfect time. You are at a place where finding balance is the key to unlock the door to all that is possible.

This card reminds you to first and foremost love yourself; that in order to receive the love you want from another, you must give that love to yourself. It also calls in that love, and lets you know that your wait is over. Love is in the air, love is everywhere. Can you feel it?

The Lovers is a card of romance, true love, and sacred love! Allow yourself to receive. Let go of the fear that you will be hurt, and move with the knowledge and the trust that you are safe; the Universe has got you and you are surrounded by love. Close your eyes and feel it!

As always, we get what we need when we need it. It is a scary thing, letting someone in to love you, letting someone know the real you. But this card comes to tell you that it is time. The past can be released, the wounds are healed, and you are ready to love and be loved.

Today you are being required to look deep within and get clear: clear about who you are and what you want. You want love, yes? Are you ready to have it all? Are you ready to feel that deep connection to another and experience true love? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes, yes, yes!

So what are you waiting for? Get out there and open yourself up to the love you have always only dreamed of. Get outside your comfort zone and align your higher Self with the vibration you want to draw in. Take a yoga class, go to the book store, or try that cooking class you have been thinking about. You must do something different if you want something different.

A few words to remember - sometimes when love comes we lose ourselves. We forget what and who we are. We allow fear and self-doubt to set in and take control. The Lovers card is reminding you to find balance, to remain true to your true self and to keep your focus on love - on what you want, not what you are scared might happen. It is also reminding you that when you act with love, there is no such thing as a wrong way. All ways are leading you to your highest Self, your greatest good.

But most importantly, this card is reminding you to love yourself. Opening yourself up to love means giving all the love you want to yourself first. By treating yourself with love, respect, and honoring every perfect part of YOU, you are creating space for someone else as well.

Today's Meditation:

Find your sweet space, set a timer for 10-20 minutes, relax everywhere. Bring your attention into your breath and your heart, quiet your mind. Silently repeat the words to yourself: "Attention, affection, appreciation, acceptance."

When your timer goes off be still for as long as you can. Enjoy knowing that you have within your heart everything you need.
