Exchanging Gifts: “The Law of Giving and Receiving; currency; trade-offs; weighing costs and determining value.”

The Oracle’s Message: “You are entering into a productive and enriching time when all manner of opportunities are being offered to you. You have everything you need to seize them. Yet in order to honor them, you must put in the time, exchange your experience and skills, and commit heart and soul to what you are choosing to pursue. You can do it! You have what it takes to be successful if you align with the Law of Giving and Receiving. You must engage in a dance of give and take, push and pull, doing and being. If you let fear guide your choices, you could deplete yourself or create an imbalance. This is not a time of just do, do, do. Use your currency wisely and be mindful of the value others bring to your life.”

Relationship Message: “Love is an exchange of life force energy between two beings. It grows exponentially when it is reciprocated. You must give and receive in order for love to flourish and abundance to flow between you. Spirit wants you to start accepting all the blessings waiting for you, as well as offer the same gift in return. Open your heart and allow it to be filled! Let love in and let it flow out of you, too. Love is truly yours today.”

Prosperity Message: “All your hard work and efforts – your commitment to learning, creating, and spending your time wisely – pay off in ways you may not have been anticipating. The gifts of yourself – your time, your ideas, and the energy of your intentions – are being reciprocated by the universe, which is sending you signs and signals, aligning synchronistic meetings and opportunities to bring you success, and more. Everything is an exchange. Keep doing what you are doing. Goodwill comes back tenfold.”

Protection Message: “Be careful what you pray for, because you just might get it – and then realize you do not want to face the hefty price tag that comes with hit. You may find yourself in a situation you have always desired but know you will have to walk away from, or even fail at it, because you can’t or won’t pay the dues it asks of you. If you want to be a famous musician, you have to practice your craft every day. If you want to be a millionaire, you have to be responsible for managing the money and paying the taxes. Even a windfall bears a cost. It is ok, though, because Spirit will help you achieve balance over time. Another message here reminds you that being only the giver and not the receiver plays out in many relationships in your life where you find yourself in victim mode, in a codependent dynamic, or holding on to a false sense of control. Others may push you to continue to prove yourself . The time has come to distance yourself from this kind of imbalance. Being aware of the need for both give and take is the first step to your true destiny. It’s all good, and getting better. Not only can you handle this, but you can flourish as a result of it!”

~ By Colette Baron Reid

There are opportunities coming your way, but you may have to make a trade off to get where you need to go. You may have to let go of someone or something in order to move to the next level. You will definitely have to let go of anything that you perceive holds you back…  the perception itself particularly!

Life is full of cycles of give and take. Relationships do best when both partners are willing to put in the work and give of themselves, but also receive and be appreciative of the other partner. Business is a give and take; you will prosper most when all parties are happy; those producing and those receiving. It is all about balance.

Look closely at what you have been wanting to create. Then look closely at what may have been stopping you from creating just that. What needs to shift in order for you to be successful in your desired outcome? Must you give up a toxic or substandard job in order to get the training for the career you have always desired? Do you need to let someone go who is just not right for you in order to make space for someone new? Only you know where the shift must take place in order for you to close one chapter and open another. And there is no time to waste, it must be done right now.

The Glove – William Meader @ Emergent Light

The Glove

Prior to stepping onto the spiritual path, human evolution is uniquely designed to cultivate the personality—the ego. Indeed, for much of one’s incarnational history the development and integration of the personality has been the driving evolutionary force. Yet once an individual begins to awaken to the soul residing within, that which was the focus of development (the personality) is slowly realized to be merely a glove.

When an individual begins to recognize the duality of the mind, then the evolution of consciousness commences with new emphasis. We must be able to consciously sense the wisdom and loving promptings of the soul, while also remaining keenly aware of our day-to-day consciousness—the personality.  When this duality is sensed, two fundamental insights will inevitably emerge within one’s mind and heart.  First is an intuitive realization that the consciousness of the soul is what we are destined to become. Secondly, that the personality is not one’s true identity and that its purpose is to be the soul’s outer garment.  Metaphorically speaking, the soul represents the hand of wisdom, while the personality symbolizes the subservient glove upon that hand.

Of course, the personality will resist the notion that it is merely a glove, for it has historically believed itself to be the hand. Yet as more and more soul awareness precipitates into the mind, the personality gradually relegates itself to being the soul’s loyal servant.  It then understands itself to be a well-fitted glove through which the soul can reach a world in need.  Such are the clothing requirements of every human soul, in this life or another.
