Uniqueness of Friendship

Friendship is the only relationship that can be experienced in every type of relationship whether between family members, professional peers, romantic partners, etc. We create these formidable bonds as we share things in common such as location, ideas, personality traits, hobbies, culture, and more. These connections strengthen as we begin to fully care about the other party and their well being. Relationships are able to grow and blossom as we realize honest and open communication are key, as well as participating in both giving and receiving.

Friends are the ones who we go to when we need help solving a problem, want to go see the new Marvel movie or chick flick, or just want to feel their presence so we know we are not alone. We are able to laugh, cry, vent, and go through every other emotion with our friends, all the while being supported and uplifted. They will tell us when we are at fault, being irrational, or just plain petty. Our truest friends are always there and will even at times put their grief and anguish aside just to allow us to confide fully in them during our most dire moments of need.

If you are fortunate enough to experience friendship with your parent, sibling, cousin, grandparent, or any other relative, be grateful for most are not able to have such a strong relationship let alone the presence of such a person in their life. If you have been blessed with finding romance and have the ability to build a strong friendship with your lover, give infinite thanks because not everyone is able to create such a powerfully, healthy relationship with their intimate partner. If you have anyone else in your life who you know will always be by your side, realize how your life is truly wonderful.

Continue to upkeep the relationships that are most fulfilling in life. There is no point in exhausting all of your energy into a bond that is unhealthy, abusive, or detrimental in any way. Listen to your heart and your soul, and you will know who is truly a friend. Give these people your all, and enjoy every moment by their side.

Three ways to upkeep a friendship:

  1. Listen – Give them your 100% undivided attention when they are speaking about something important or even minute.
  2. Be reliable – If you’re going to meet up for coffee, go on a trip, or even plan a phone call, make sure to keep your word. It is important that they can depend on you.
  3. Be honest – Tell them the truth about your feelings, opinions, and views on all situations where they seek advice. I am not saying to be rude, uncouth, or demeaning – just honest. They might not thank you immediately, but they will eventually.

I am sure you all already are well aware of the importance of friendship Eternal Waking Beauties. Keep upholding these beautiful connections the universe has created for us.

Card of the Day: Simplicity

Faerie Reflections Guidance Deck

Paulina Cassidy is one of my favorite Tarot and Oracle creators. Her artwork paired with her intuitive guidance gives each card character and beauty. I am constantly captivated by her style and imagery through her many talents.

Each card in this deck holds a piece of faerie guidance from the faerie depicted. The names of each faerie are the concepts they hold and bring to help us on our path. We are being asked to connect to our higher selves and divine purpose to create and build upon a happier and healthier life.

Simplicity

Simplicity is humble, grateful, and free due to her calm and clear essence.

“She creates a world of tranquility that reflects her own self, her own spirit, with no competition with anyone or anything outside of herself.” -Paulina Cassidy

She is asking us to allow ourselves to be free as well. Free of burdens, people, ideas, and things that bring clutter and stagnant energy. The sooner we remove everything we own that is attached to negative people and memories, the sooner we can heal, learn, and grow from those experiences.

The more we clutch onto the past, the longer we stay there ruminating about moments we can no longer control. Forgive and forget the heartache and suffering, but remember the lessons learned from each.

Give yourself less options so you are not overwhelmed, but do not limit yourself to the point of feeling helpless or trapped. Here are three little things to help simplify your life:

  1. Purge: “Out with the old, in with the new.” Time to go through closets, shoe racks, makeup, jewelry boxes, tool chests, bookshelves, and other collections or knickknacks. Get rid of everything you no longer use (yes all those broken necklaces, scuffed up shoes, shirts you’ll never wear but swear you might some day, etc.) Donate it, recycle it, get rid of it.
  2. Clean: That’s right. Get out the mop, broom, duster, vacuum, and more. Time to scrub away all of the grime and debris in your physical world to help you declutter your mental and spiritual worlds. This will not only sanitize your space, but it will also free up room for energy to move more freely creating a more peaceful environment.
  3. Organize: Put things in numerical and alphabetical order. Color code your clothing. Rearrange your crystals. Hang up your scarves. Have designated spaces for your things (i.e. keys, change, remotes). Do whatever you need to be able to find what you need easier. This will help when you’re running late, and again create a more harmonious space for energy to flow.

I hope this message helped all of you Eternal Waking Beauties. I have been cleaning and organizing today, and am going to do a mini purge. These tasks also help us be mindful as we focus on what is presently occurring instead of allowing our minds to wander. Take your time and try to enjoy yourself as you focus on each sensory sensation.
