Card of the Day: CHOP WOOD

Essential Meanings: Being grounded in everyday experience, humility.
We all have hopes and dreams in our lives. As much as we will like things to happen – in an instant – it certainly isn’t realistic in life. We all need to learn the art of patience. Life is can be chaotic, peaceful, happy, sad and everything in between.
It’s the same for chopping wood. It requires the skills of concentration, physical balance, steady, stability and again patience. You also need to have the drive or will to chop wood. That’s another important part of fulfilling a goal, a wish, or an ambition. You need to be motivated or inspired to do this.
So what does motivate you? What are you inspired to do? In answering this question – you need to ask yourself if you could do anything right now – if you had all the money, all the resources and all the opportunities that you needed in order to get to where you wished to be – what would that be?
In spiritual truth, and in essence nothing is holding you back. You can have anything you desire – it is within reach. However, it’s vital to stay ground with your intentions. Just like with my analogy with someone chopping wood – it does take work and effort.
My dad always tells me (and still does!) “No sweet, without sweat” and he has a good point. We can dream big – and that’s fine to do so, but we also need to realize that we need to work towards our goals. it’s not use in wishing (although it’s good to wish).
In the Law of Attraction, we each have a part to play in regards to making our dreams a reality. Our spiritual team of Angels, Guides and whoever else you resonate with need our help as well. The Universe is working hard to help us, but we need to make an effort to achieve our goals.
So, this begins with little steps. One small step. Even writing or setting the intention of your goal is a step. Like chopping wood, piece by piece, you create little pieces of wood form a tree. It doesn’t seem that daunting or scary, when you do this.
Think of the accomplishment you will achieve when you realize that you have completed your dream! Enjoy the journey. Have faith.
With love and Angel blessings to you! <3 <3 <3
