Today I decided to pick a card from the Fool’s Wisdom oracle card deck and the card I picked is The Duty Fool.  The archetype of the Fool offers an objective unedited view our ourselves…..providing guidance, assistance, and direction.

The card I picked is The Pain Fool and the message for someone reading this is….with pain comes important lessons.   Everything happens for a reason and as you face suffering….recognize the lesson within the situation.  This may be physical pain….if you are getting sick or are injured….the reason behind it could be you need to slow down and take a break.  You may need time to think….to come to a realization about something within your life….you’ve been moving at too fast of a pace to receive the messages you need right now.

If you are experiencing physical pain….consider the deeper root or cause.   How are the relationships in your life?  Is there a conflict that is stressing you out that you need to address?  How have you been eating?  Have you been getting adequate rest?  Are you exercising at all?  Face the pain and consider these questions….often they manifest through our physical experience when something is off balance or lacking.  Figuring out a a deeper level what caused this pain will help you heal and avoid the pain in the future.

Our culture often over medicates without getting to the root of the problem….. not allowing time for us to face the pain and heal….too much to do….too many responsibilities.  But masking the pain can only make things worse in the long run.  Don’t mask the pain….face it….take the time out to experience it to get it over with….if you don’t face it….the pain will linger in one way or another and eventually hit you harder.

This applies to emotional pain as well….you must face it….what happened….why it happened.  Yes it hurts….but it will continue to hurt and eat away at you unless you face it and process it.  As hard as it sounds….facing and addressing the pain will release the energy that hurts you right now…its time for you to heal….so take the time to process it.

There often reasons we get sick or experience another form of pain…..we always learn something from the experience that helps us grow and makes us stronger.  The lesson from the pain is a blessing….acknowledge the blessing….appreciate it….recognize it….process it….and this will ease the pain so you can move on with your life stronger and wiser.

I will be back tomorrow with another card reading of the day.  Have a great Friday!!!
