The Beloved

The Beloved speaks to our core essence of love, a gift from Spirit. More often we fall in love with appearance, material values, and personality than the Beloved in another person. We cannot truly fall in love if we cannot see the Beloved in ourselves.

Your goal is to recognize the Beloved gift from Spirit in yourself. It will help you love yourself which makes you stronger and more lovable person. It helps you see the Beloved in another person because you are not projecting ideas and wishes on them and you are better able to separate their presence and values from their Beloved gift from Spirit. The more practice the more you will mature and be able to see the Beloved gift all around you.

If you don’t learn to recognize the Beloved in yourself you are destined to fall in love with the ideas and beliefs you are projecting on the other person rather than their own Beloved gift. Ultimately this will lead to another romantic calamity.

The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life, The World Tree, or Arbor Mundi. A sacred symbol from Siberia to the Americas, Australia, India and Europe. Two of its artistic embodiments, the Old Testament Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and the Norse world tree – Ash Yggdrassil have taken a special place in the world culture. Its roots descend into the Lower world and its branches rise up to the Heavens.

This is a message to you to make sure your feet are on the ground. If your lofty thoughts are fantasy and daydreams and not matched by having your feet firmly grounded the slightest breeze or upset will blow you over. You need to be more grounded.

But, if you are in the same job, or doing the same work over and over and feel you are nothing more than a cog in a machine, you may be too grounded and have not raised yourself and your thoughts up to the higher branches to see what could be changed, so lift yourself up. 

Now turn to what it is you want to manifest. What is required to help your desires and wishes grow and become the fruit you harvest from The Tree of Life. Be conscious of what you desire to create and how and what you need to create and take action.
