The Five of Hearts is not an easy card to receive as it reminds us of what once was and is no longer. Whether it be someone we love who has passed on or virtually anything or any situation that we had became emotionally attached to and is no longer here with us. . Grieving is a very human process of dealing with loss. For it to be effective it must not be rushed. It will take as long as needed and may never go away completely. This is perfectly okay. We must let it be, to come and go as often as necessary, to let it naturally run its course. . This card that I have drawn today holds a very personal message for me. This is the day of my mother’s birthday. . A giant in the metaphysical circles, she was the one that opened my awareness and inspired me to pursue this field of study. I have so much to thank her for. She has passed from this world but not from my heart. . I grieve for her with tears as I write this. But they are in a sense tears of joy as well as sorrow. Joy for her having been my mother, for her love, for her authenticity and for a life well lived. And of course sorrow that she is no longer physically with us. . I am intentionally letting the emotions flow and run their course through me. The happiness shared, the guilt that I wasn’t by her side when she passed, the unconditional love she had for me and I for her, and, the sorrow that she is no longer physically here with me now. . Deck used: “The Art of Love Tarot”, by Denise Jarvie. Artwork by Toni Carmine Salerno. Card; “Five of Hearts (Cups).” . It is my sincere hope that by bringing these energies to your attention that it may be helpful for you in some way.
