Graciella speaks. I channel her words, wisdom and sentiment. -Theresa
Friendship/ Amistad: Graciella asks us to reflect on our familiar relationships. We are born of blood and bone from those of our lineage. While the spiral of our genetic strands entwine there is more of which to be aware.
Have you considered the friendships that you share with your blood relatives? Many of us desire closer bonds with our family members. In order to achieve the intimacy and closeness that you wish for there must be a mutual respect, nurturance, and work done to obtain and maintain that closeness for all parties involved.
Some family members have given up those close bonds due to past interactions that have proven detrimental to the self-esteem and good health of that person. Sometimes family members get caught in the web of trying to attract another who has cut themselves out of the web. What is the gain for any who attempts to lure the person back who is trying to gain positivity in his or her life?
Each individual has his or her own path, experience, and personal knowledge. Today, Graciella asks you to candidly reflect on your family relationships. While developing a healthy stance for yourself, allow your fellow blood ties to determine what is healthy for them. By accepting liberation and self-determination, you may find yourself leaning toward them on a path that is open to a progressive friendship on a path you both choose.
In openness and acceptance,
Graciella and Theresa
