Today's reading is from a song (more about that at the end).
The song is "Honesty" by Billy Joel. a top forty hit in 1979. It's been covered by many artists, including Beyoncé, and was featured on an episode of "GLEE" in 2013.
The lyrics of the song point to the way honesty is missing from our relationships, even with those closest to us.
If you search for tenderness
It isn't hard to find
You can have the love you need to live
But if you look for truthfulness
You might just as well be blind
It always seems to be so hard to give
Does this hit home for you? Do you find it difficult to be honest with those close to you?
This isn't about being unfaithful to a lover, or lying about something else just to try and get away with doing something deceitful. It's about letting yourself be vulnerable to those you love, sharing that part of you that is real without being afraid that you'll be mocked or misunderstood.
I talk about this on the Love Show quite a bit. In your relationships, you should be comfortable enough, and trust enough, to be able to share your hopes, your dreams, your everything.
That's not to say you should be with someone who likes everything you like, believes everything you believe, wants everything you want, dreams everything you dream, etc. But you should be with someone who respects you, your beliefs, your wants, your dreams, etc.
Honesty is such a lonely word
Everyone is so untrue
Honesty is hardly ever heard
And mostly what I need from you
Not only should you have that in your relationships, but you should also be, especially for those close to you.
Are you encouraging enough to allow your romantic partner to share themselves with you? Can you support their likes, beliefs, wants, dreams, etc., even if your own aren't the same?
Those are all questions only you can answer. It's definitely worth thinking about!
I recommend watching the video below, paying special attention to the lyrics.
Spirits and Angels love music, and love to give us messages through music. This song comes from my Psychic Jukebox, which has over eighteen thousand songs in it. I set it to play randomly, and asked my guides and angels to give me the song that was the message that was needed. I've posted the video of the song below if you'd like to listen!
I also use my Psychic Jukebox in the readings on Psychic Tapestry's Love Show, heard on Blog Talk Radio every Friday at 5:00pm (Pacific) and in my readings at Myztic Isle on Mondays (get directions or make an appointment by visiting Myztic Isle's website RIGHT HERE)!
