Today’s card comes from The Romance Angels Oracle Cards.
Codependency ~ Addictions are affecting your romantic life.
If you feel you have addictions affecting your life negatively in any way, seek help. Maybe this is the year you decide to find a 12 Step group, receive addiction counselling, go to an Elder, etc. Some things we just don’t have to do on our own. I know so many people who like to blame their addictive ways on their partner – they tell me they drink because their partner drinks. Well, from what I’ve seen these same people drank before they entered their relationship and continue to drink after that partnership has ended. In fact, they often drink to deal with their heartbreak of the relationship being over. I’ve done it myself in my life. It may be time to get honest about your responsibility regarding your addiction. We can’t blame others for our own actions. If you are being affected by other people’s addictions and it’s affecting your life, seek help. We can’t control the actions of others and we have to set boundaries for ourselves. Setting boundaries is a loving action we can do for ourselves. We are responsible for our own happiness and the safety of those in our care, such as our children and elderly parents. Maybe there has been recent events, like holiday celebrating that has brought the addictions to light. Maybe you are worried about the weekend. It’s time to make a decision on how you would like to proceed. You are being given the steps from your guides. You might already know what you have to do. If not, pray to a power greater than yourself and have faith this Almighty Being is helping. I may have spoken about drinking, but remember there are many types of addictions and we need to really look at how our behaviors are affecting others and ourselves regardless of whether we are the ones addicting or not. We are given advice in this card to ground and to shield from lower energies. This might be an emotional time which is why people may be distracting with addictions. Try talking to someone, journalling, etc, or do some research on what people do to deal with emotions in a healthy way. If you can, keep yourself in positive energies, Smudge, do some self-care to keep your vibration up. Many people practice the white or gold light surrounding them to shield. To those I’ve passed on the crystal shield – use that, it works.
Thanks for reading, have an awesome weekend!
