Equal Give & Take

Three of Swords; Ace of Swords; Two of Cups

I have realized more truth and clarity about the acts of giving and receiving. I embody the characteristics of being kind and generous and have always believed that it’s a blessing to be able to give as much as possible and deserving of receiving the same back. What I didn’t realize is that when I give too much to people who don’t value or reciprocate them, I was just hurting myself when they don’t give back. Not everyone will appreciate my kind nature. Some will even take me for granted, although I won’t resent them at all. I thank them for helping me realize about my unrealistic expectations. I may be deserving of receiving the same treatment back, but I shouldn’t expect it.

These days, I have also learned to receive more by balancing these opposing energies. I shouldn’t expect others to reciprocate what I give as no one owes me anything. But I owe it to myself to receive when others do give. I needed to learn to release these illusions to expect anything from others. What I deserve but don’t expect, I shall receive and value them. I am grateful for what I have received already, but be more willing and grateful to receive when others generously give to me. I am deserving to receive but without expectations to give back.

I needed to learn how to balance the acts of give AND take. Referring to the 3 tarot cards in the photo above, all along I was fooling myself with the 3 of Swords. There is no one to blame for who I’ve become. I’m not going to stop being a kind and generous human being. I shall continue to spread my love to others but with grace, integrity and self respect. Ace of Swords and 2 of Cups speak about realizing the truth and clarity about the need to balance any two opposing energies. Balancing the mind and heart is the key to finding internal balance of my soul. In the midst of learning, healing, and soul awakening, I am in the process of discovering self-love and wholeness. I’m grateful for these spiritual lessons. ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’š
