7/1212—Looking Back Over Generations of Love

Today's Draw: Six of Coils from the Ironwing Tarot. When someone dies, do you lose their love? When lose touch with someone, do you lose their love? Can love ever be lost?

Today's card in "How to Feel More Love" week hearkens to that old saying, "love is never lost". The Six of Coils is about memory and nostalgia, on one hand. And on the other, it's about the connectedness we have with those we love. 

Depending on what you believe, no one ever dies. They just change form...leave the body...enter into another dimension...whatever. Their energy and vibration don't go anywhere. They may be harder to discern or feel because they're not wrapped in a personality that's wrapped in flesh anymore, but the energy remains. And if you don't believe there's an actual energy and vibration that continue on, you can probably agree that, at the very least, they live on in memory. 

What I'm getting at, to put it crassly, is just because someone is dead doesn't mean the love dies, too. So when you're not feeling enough love in your life, be sure to throw in the love of your parents and grandparents who have passed over. And while you're at it, put in the love of ALL of your ancestors who did things like fight in wars and sail to foreign lands so the family lines would live on in you and your descendents. And then you also have to include all the teachers and babysitters that may have passed. And siblings. And aunts and uncles. 

And, of course, you have to count all the living people that love you, even though they're not in contact with you anymore. And you get to count all the love that was ever given, even by people who later stopped loving you. The person they were at the time loved you and it was real. And then, of course, let's not forget about all the love you feel for everyone you've ever loved. You gotta throw that in the "feel the love" pot, too. 

And one more thing to count, which I'd be remiss in not saying this week, is that your god loves you unconditionally. That's something that also never goes away. The love of the universe beams through every heart that has ever loved you throughout time. It beams everywhere. There is nowhere love is not. You may not always see it that way, but whether in memory or in this very moment, there is never not love. For you. Because the universe's love is eternal and omnipresent.

So there's this huge web of love that covers countless generations across countless numbers of friends and relatives—not to mention all the timeless power of the universe's love—with you at its center. And all that love is there for you to receive, if you'll just open your senses to receiving it.
