Oracle Reading Message From The Crystal Deva: “You have attracted this powerful card into your life today to remind you of the importance of healthy boundaries. Creating and understanding the meaning of healthy boundaries for most people can sometimes be overwhelming. When you start to create healthy boundaries, you can sometimes get confused and think you are being selfish or too hard on yourself and others. This is a perfectly normal part of the process of understanding and creating healthy boundaries, so be patient and gentle with yourself and know this process is different for everyone. You may have pulled this card today because someone in your life may be taking too much from you or you are giving too much. There requires a balance in giving and receiving – you can disempower others and yourself if this sharing comes from an unhealthy intention. The devas are here offering you wisdom and healing as you master the process of setting healthy boundaries. You are a generous, loving soul who provides healing and support to many people and the devas urge you to learn to honor your own needs first. Start to know and be aware of your own and others’ boundaries, remembering it is your responsibility to take care of your own needs. The action of creating healthy boundaries can bring out a deep healing of self on many levels. It brings the energy and awareness back to the heart and allows you to come from a place of love and clarity and encourages loving, nurturing and fulfilling relationships to blossom in your life based on mutual love, respect, and healthy boundaries.”*

It’s a very good practice to establish boundaries in a relationship right at the beginning. But this is also when we are least likely to establish them, particularly if we tend to be people pleasers or don’t like to appear selfish or stern. However, if these boundaries are not set, then the grey areas can be what comes back to haunt you. When you appear to have no boundaries, or very shallow ones, then you appear to be more desperate to please, which can affect the level of respect someone else feels for you. And much of this is on an energetic level, and may even feel ok… until those non existent boundaries are pushed beyond your comfort zone.
We teach people how to treat us by putting boundaries into effect… or not. We show them where our moral lines are, and where not to cross them. Sometimes we loosen the boundaries when we think that someone is “THE ONE” and we don’t realize that is when we may need them most. It’s a difficult lesson to learn, as once the boundaries are not firmly in place, it is hard to enforce them later.
Somewhere in your life your boundaries are being tested. Where once you let your guard completely down, you are now feeling compromised. It’s not a nice feeling. What to do now? How to put boundaries in place after toes have been stepped on? There is no way to quietly put them in place, you must find your voice and do it.
Red Jasper will help you put boundaries where they are most needed, and teach you when to put them in place in the future. You will learn that it is best to put them down at the start of a friendship or relationship, whether it is between a family member, acquaintance, love interest or co-worker. You must aim for the boundaries to be respectful for both parties, and take your time, energy and efforts into account. Invite a clear and firm communication. Be brave and courageous when setting our your ground rules.
And see that instead of being selfish, you are actually establishing your sovereignty and personal space. This is something to be proud of.
