True Love

For inspiration this week I drew an Inner-Child Card and pulled out the the Ace of Hearts.

The essence of true love is, above all, faith-in the ineffable reverence that grows out of the union with a beloved. This beloved can be your inner self or another human soul.

The root meaning of love is to acknowledge absolute concern for another being. In order to express this empathy for another, one must secure self-love in one's own heart.

In this card, two mermaids joyously push a Winged Heart up from the sea. It is offered as an inspired sunrise, touching the golden light of the sky. This heart reveals the acceptance of love at the highest level, for the heart is the vessel of life, adorned with wings of spiritual freedom.

An ace in any suit is always positive. This card affirms that a new opportunity in the realm of love is rising out of the depths of the past, symbolised by the ocean. This new love may be a person, an idea, the realisation of a dream, or a new creative endeavor.

As you meditate on this card, open your heart to what it offers you, because it holds the key to exploring the higher dimensions of universal love. Have faith in love, for it can comfort you in times of crisis. Love is like an eternal flame whose steady light can always guide you during times of personal darkness. Love is always there, and will never abandon you.

What does love mean to you? You can write about, paint it, take a photo, scrap it ... what ever moves you!

Thanks so much for this opportunity Mitch. It's a wonderful, glorious place to come and grow each day.
It's so pretty here. Perfect for our "women's circle"

I found this site thru Sacred Suzie. I'm going through some significant changes right now and would love to have a connection with other women who are also doing some serious soul-searching. Wondering if I may I join the group?

I have an old blogspot account, but I am currently blogging at Turtleheart Cove at my own domain: www.intothedawn.com/blog

I love the image of heart lifted by wings and it has been appearing in a lot of my drawing lately. Love truly lifts your spirits high. I am currently appreciating all the love I have in my life, accepting it and finding ways to love myself more.

I love the image of this card. This is part of my constant journey on the plant; to love myself more and to love and live with compassion for every single soul out there. I love what you have done here.

This card evokes so much emotion and a craving for that higher love. The images of the mermaids holding the heart up to the sun (my cherished one), is perfect. I'd love to be part of this group because I'm all about lifting up and encouraging women...besides, I love this kind of dialogue! p.s. working on my answers too.......
