Our card for the week is Starting Fresh from Gateway Oracle Cards by Denise Linn.
We find fresh starts in our lives for a variety of reasons. Seasons change, creative ideas spark, long awaited dreams come true or slates are wiped clean and we begin anew.
New beginnings can be solutions to problems we have worked hard to find. And sometimes we even wrestle through difficulties or loss to find the hope we need to survive.
The band Semisonic gave us something to ponder with their lyric,
"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end."
That is the balance we see portrayed in the image in our card this week. If new beginnings are the yin, it reasons that endings are the yang. What a mixed bag of emotions! Sadness at a door closing behind us as we journey forward. Relief at one thing finally being over as we gaze apprehensively at a new horizon. Excitement and exuberance at the presence of something new even as it pushes the old out of its way. The human experience is full of paradox.
The message this week is a reminder to be grateful for the blooming. Life has a way of opening up, and faith comes in believing that it will.
May we find the light at the end of each tunnel.
May we move into a bright future graciously bowing to the road behind.
And may we see each blossoming as a reminder of all that is possible.
Here's to a Fresh Start!
Bright Blessings for a Beautiful Week!!
