Card for this Day: INTERGRITY
(Courtesy of Mary, Queen of Angels Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue)
This card has shown up today because perhaps you are questioning the integrity of someone you may know, or even the integrity of yourself. The dictionary definition of ‘integrity’ means “the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.” So what does this mean? We all have a moral compass and this has been taught to us as children. Our first teachers, are our parents. Our parents are our first guides towards what we are taught and perceived to be right and wrong. For every single person on this planet, we each have different morals and values based on our own belief system. This doesn’t have to incorporate religious or spiritual belief systems, however, many people around the world still follow religious, or spiritual belief systems based on what these morals, values and principles mean to each person. We all have the ability to be honest with ourselves and with each other, but it’s another choice to act on this will or ability is another thing entirely. A value is “someone’s standards of behavior, or even what they believe to be of what is great importance.” You can say that for many people around this world, that integrity is one of them. When people are in their own integrity and morality, you can learn to trust people and have no doubts. How can you tell if someone isn’t being honest with you? Perhaps you can use your own intuition or physical body to guide you to why this person is lying or deceiving you. There are signs – it could be a gut feeling, or this person (or persons) body language is speaking to you the real truth as opposed to what they are saying. Mother Mary is a wonderful example to lovingly demanding others to live their truth, with honest and integrity of whatever that may be. As a mother herself, she just wants her children, us, to be in our own authenticity and be whom we truly are. We also need to be mindful of people who aren’t in their integrity. Keep in mind, that they have their own lessons and karma to learn and follow, and it’s up to them to take up this course – not you. You, beloved one, have your own journey to fulfil. If you feel at this time you haven’t been in your own integrity, look at why this is. What are the influencers or other factors that have made you decided to not be honest with others. Is it stress? Is it time management? Is it because you have been emotional or tired? Have you not been looking after yourself? It’s a time to review your own values, morals and principles or even your entire belief system. This isn’t a bad thing, as change is always inevitable. Write down or review with someone whom you trust of how you can make small changes. But – learn from your mistakes. Again, as previously mentioned in yesterday’s card reading we all need to still be held accountable for all our actions, thoughts and words as this is the entire foundation of our integrity. You also need to be mind that a lack of integrity doesn’t excuse poor behavior, towards those we love and everyone that deserves respect. All in all, forgive yourself and forgive others. By doing small changes to help yourself….you are changing your karma for the better. Love Libby xo
