The Answers You Seek are Within You
There are times when I receive this message and feel frustrated with it. I want the Gabriel Message Cards to help me receive the answers I am seeking. I think I want more information than to merely look within. There even may be a part of my mind that wants the decisions to be made very clearly for me.
I know this card is telling me to settle down, breathe more slowly, take some time to be still, and THEN I will have the answer. Sometimes my rebellious nature shows up, making me feel impatient. That is when I really need to go for a walk, do some yoga, dance to loud music, or something else of a physical nature.
Those are the times when my mind has gone on mental overload and there is no way I will be able to find my answers intellectually. Why does it seem so hard to step away from the computer, when it is so obvious I need to do something more resourceful or loving for myself?
I find it really helpful to stop and say a prayer. I am letting the Divine Mind know there are answers I am seeking and would appreciate the flow of clarity and wisdom that will help me to receive. And I might make sure I also ask to be a better receiver, what they speak of in Buddhism as beginner’s mind. When my mind — or my heart — is not open to receive, there will not be any clarity for me in that moment.
After a prayer, gifts come to me that look very different than the answers I had imagined. If I am not able to receive my answer clearly from within my heart, in perfect synchronicity a book might fall off the shelf in front of me. I may be in a store and overhear a conversation, or a friend will mention a class she took and will give me insight to the answers I am seeking.
The Universe is conspiring to support us in every way. Our willingness to have an open mind and heart offers us the ways to receive all we need in every area of life.
