I’m grateful for the symbolic meaning of cardinals. The cardinal can mean different things to different people. To me, the cardinal represents authentic love from here and beyond. I love the thought of passed loved ones visiting me from beyond. I also love the feeling that I’m doing something right by taking care of my family the way I do. Then there is the additional bonus of feeling like I’m getting signs that I know how to love my romantic partner with all my heart. I know that unconditional love is the ONLY authentic love. Cardinals are the the reminder for me to celebrate that love in my life.
If I see a cardinal when I’m lost in the energy of fear, lack, and separation, it reminds me to do the work to get my energy back to love, abundance, and peace. My fears only create wounds in my relationships. My love makes space for healing and living abundantly. Cardinals are a wonderful reminder to stick with love.
Today, I commit to embracing the symbolic meaning of the cardinal. I watch cardinals come and go outside my window daily, which is why they are the perfect reminder to face the moment from a loving place. Whether I feel like the cardinal represents the love of a departed loved one or a reminder to fill my heart with the beautiful energy of love, I will honor the love I’ve been blessed with in my life by projecting love into what I think, believe, feel, and do.
A cardinal can be a beautiful gift when I need the reminder to show myself the love and respect that I deserve, because I know that if I’m not projecting it, I’m not going to recognize authentic love when it is presented to me to give or receive. I’ve missed plenty of displays of love in the past. When I’m not projecting love from my core, I can create a story about why acts of love are not really love at all. I’ve seen myself spin some disturbing stories when all the moment truly needed was for me to show up with love. It can happen at any moment I go unconscious and remove myself from the present moment. I’m so grateful I have the cardinals to help bring me back. As I’m writing these words, I see a cardinal coming to visit. I love Divine timing.
I hope you’ve been enjoying diving into symbolic meanings as apart of the process of aligning with love, abundance, and peace daily. Each day I focus on a specific thing, I’m amazed at how much easier it is for me to align my energy. Before I started writing these, I wasn’t paying very much attention to just how much tapping into these symbolic meanings affect my day. I hope it’s helping you notice more too. Wishing all of you who are following along a day full of love, abundance, and peace! Keep doing the work, it’s worth it!
With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
