Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Psychic Tarot For The Heart Oracle Card deck, by John Holland: Nurture
Nurture ~ Key Words: “Cherish, nourish, blossom, abundance, nature, creativity.”
“The Nurture card reminds you to ‘tend the garden.’ Relationships must be nourished in order to thrive. Count the abundant blessings of the relationships you have. Find ways to let other people know that you care for them and appreciate them. Good relationships can be taken to new levels of happiness, and faltering relationships can be revived with loving care and attention.
Equally, be sure to tend to your relationship with yourself. Nurture your soul by giving yourself the grace to be who you really are, and love yourself for it. Take a few moments every day to connect with the Divine. Gaze on the image on this card today as you meditate for five minutes or simply have an attitude of gratitude. Nurture your mind by engaging in activities that stimulate and engage. Use your creativity in some way every day. Everyone has the ability to be creative, whether you paint, write, cook, sew, sing, dance.. live! Take care of your body by maintaining your good health or by making it healthy. Relax in a bubble bath, enjoy a good cup of tea, or take a long walk. Connecting with nature will soothe and nourish all aspects of yourself.
Remember that nurturing yourself also raises your vibration and sends a signal of love into the Universe. If you desire it, that signal will be a beacon that will bring a new and loving relationship to you.
I shower all my relationships with loving
attention and watch them blossom.”*

Gratitude is the first step to raising your vibration to match that which you wish to draw into your life. When you experience gratitude, it triggers a response in the Universe to send you more of the things that have made you grateful. Sometimes we take for granted the people closest to us, our family and friends. This is a perfect time to step back and see how important they are to us, and how much we appreciate their loving presence in our lives. This is not a time to weigh and measure the conditions in which they qualify for this love, it is instead a time to see the beauty in who they are; working with what they have, right here and now.
Do you have children? Have you taken some time to tell them how much you love them and how proud you are to be their parent? How blessed you feel to have them in your life? How about your parents or siblings; forgiving mistakes and inadequacies and appreciating that they came here to teach you very important karmic lessons… lessons that your soul agreed upon before coming here to the physical plane! How about your friends and relationships, can you take a moment to remove yourself from the every day drama and just feel grateful for those you have drawn into your life for many reasons, no matter how they may have hurt you in the past, knowing that when you see the lesson, they will set you free?
Your love, your gratitude, even a smile or a hug can go a long way in nurturing you and those who you love, which in turn will nurture your soul. Lead with love.
