Daily Reading: January 26, 2021

As the twenty-sixth day of the first month, today carries energies and aspects of partnerships, co-creation, harmony, and abundance. Through our harmonious relations with others, we create stability, which in turn provides us with a solid platform from which to build, reach higher, grow, and set our sights on loftier goals. We are strongly encouraged now to dream bigger, aim higher, and look to elevate ourselves more than ever before. What is the best version of yourself you have envisioned? Now go beyond that, above that, and see your best you, and then reach even higher for your even better you. We are always growing, always changing, always learning and we can always thrive, more and more continually. We are asked to release the mindset that if something is good, the other shoe will eventually drop. It doesn’t have to be that way. As creators of our own realities, we can create the life we want. If we set the intention that things will always get better for us, and nurture that with a repeated daily mantra, we can reinforce this as a habit which then becomes a belief. Mantras can be repeated in the mind throughout the day and can help us to establish new, positive thought patterns and beliefs. We can rewrite our thinking in this way, through consistency and focus. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us fourteen and five. These numbers indicate the strengthening of foundations in our lives and the manifestation of new opportunities and creations stemming from this more stable platform, which may be energetic or could have to do with our relationships (with ourselves, others, the divine), our perspective, our beliefs, our vibration, our goals, our spiritual gifts, and just about anything else in our awareness. Change is indicated that is either positive on its face or that brings about a release of what was not serving us in order to make room for what is better, stronger, and more aligned. We may be experiencing expansion, either in our manifested reality or spiritually and energetically, and we may be aware of this or not to varying degrees. There is an indication today of subtlety and we are guided to tune into our intuition without preconceived ideas, but simply tuning in and allowing what is available to us to flow into our perception and awareness. The subtleties may be developments behind the scenes and it could benefit us to notice and become aware of them as they are taking shape and solidifying so we can make adjustments and set new intentions where necessary. Tools like tarot and oracle cards can be helpful now in guiding us to new understandings and helping us to better understand what may be hidden or just out of view, as well as anything it would benefit us to prepare for. We are asked to release fear, as it is just an illusion and we attract whatever we focus on.

Mantra: My life is always improving in every way. Everything is always getting better for me. Everything is always working in my favor. I am blessed, I am protected, I am divinely guided.

Knowing Your Worthiness

Each one of us is worthy. The only thing that holds us back from that knowledge is ourselves. We are all here to learn and grow, and part of that process involves making mistakes. We can all look back at choices we made with the clarity of hindsight and recognize what the better choice might have been. But did we learn from the situation? That is what is most important.

It doesn’t serve us to hold onto regret or guilt; those emotions only keep us stuck in the past and block us from moving forward and experiencing the happiness we all deserve. It is helpful to look back to acknowledge what a situation taught us, but not to wallow in the negatives. Forgiving ourselves is so important. It is just as important to forgive others and to let go of resentment, which also keep us tied to the past in ways that are unhealthy and prevent us from experiencing the beauty life has to offer.

When you make a mistake, acknowledging it and setting the intention to release it with love and forgiveness to yourself is a powerful way to begin moving forward. Using a similar process to forgive others also helps clear those energies and blockages. The more we forgive ourselves and others, the more we can connect to our sense of self-worth and to an understanding of the unique value we have to offer, both to ourselves and to the world. Now is a time of tremendous karmic clearing, so trust your intuition if you feel like you need to make something right with somebody to clear the energy.

The more we heal, the more we strengthen our connection to what is real, to what is within us—our divine, sacred energy. When we remember that we are sourced from the divine, it is easy to recognize why each one of us is worthy. That is not to say that we are all worthy in the same way, because our individuality means we each have something unique to offer. Every one of us is here to show up in a specific way. By connecting more strongly to our sense of self, we ground further in the knowing of our unique, individual value.

Knowing that we are worthy—of happiness, of thriving, of living a joyful and abundant life—creates powerful shifts in our mindset and in our lives. This knowing guides us along the path to better understanding the reasons we are here and the powerful ways we can show up for ourselves and others. It really changes everything. Our eyes open to new clarity, awareness, and opportunities, and we begin to see ourselves and the world around us in a new light. Every experience and encounter becomes sacred and is an opportunity for joyful expansion, connection, and a chance to create or share or learn something meaningful.
