Intuitive Tuesday -- Prosperity

Every Tuesday I select one card and give you my interpretation of it. See how it applies to your life. What messages are here for you?

Each Thursday I choose one reader's comment from Intuitive Tuesday and pull an additional card for more clarity...so check back on Thursday to see what cards come up.

Today I selected a card out of the Archangel Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D. The card is Prosperity and the message is:
Archangel Ariel: "Your material needs are provided as you follow your intuition and manifest your dreams into reality."
The message here reminds me of the Six of Pentacles in the tarot deck (pictured here from the Legacy of the Divine Tarot by Ciro Marchetti), which is a card of charity and giving. The idea here is that you have enough prosperity and flow to share with others.

Just last night I was reading, "Light On Yoga," by B.K.S. Iyengar. In the introduction, Iyengar introduces the concept and philosophy of yoga. The rest of the book includes photos and descriptions of poses that I can't imagine my body performing. Can a human body really do that?

Iyengar mentions the concept of sharing what you have when he is talking about winning unalloyed happiness by following a fourfold remedy: Maitri (friendliness), Karuna (compassion), Mudita (delight) and Upeksa (disregard).

Karuna speaks to the energy of Prosperity and the Six of Pentacles. He said:
Karuna is not merely showing pity or compassion and shedding tears of despair at the misery of others. It is compassion coupled with devoted action to relieve the misery of the afflicted. The yogi uses all his resources -- physical, economic, mental or moral -- to alleviate the pain and suffering of others. He shares his strength with the weak until they become strong. He shares his courage with those that are timid until they become brave by his example. He denies the maxim of the 'survival of the fittest,' but makes the weak strong enough to survive. He becomes a shelter to one and all. (Page 26)
The message today is to be grateful for what you have and share with others. How can you, in your little corner of the world, share the energy of Prosperity and the Six of Pentacles today?

That is a questions that I need time to answer. I think it's supposed to be that way.

I really like Archangel Ariel's message.

I think I need to loosen my grip. This is very hard for me, as you know.

I keep thinking about organizing a hats for Preemies project locally. That would definitely use skills and materials I have an abundance of.

I LOVE the message from the Archangel Ariel! Wow! Just the affirmation I needed! Following my intuition seems to be my theme this year as you know... actually it is a lifetime theme methinks. Following your intuition allows you to turn your dreams into reality! They seem to go hand in hand. Allowing it to happen fills my life with great joy and so many blessings! I am so grateful for all of my blessings. I have been really trying to spread the prosperity and blessings around with my daily thoughts, intentions, and prayers, as well as with my daily interactions with people. Sharing your gifts is such a beautiful thing to do... and it keeps coming back to you! It flows!

I actually am taking away something from this that wasn't in the words necessarily.

I give pretty freely but maybe not always with the best attitude. Sometimes I feel a little used I guess. I'm going to change my whole perspective and be grateful I'm able to give.
