The five of swords reminds us to become aware of the vastness of our world, and to step out of the hypnotic trance that spellbinds our mind towards mentally combating others or undesired circumstances.
Who or what we invite in to our minds remains a personal choice. We are reminded that we always have a choice on who or what we give our thoughts away to, for our thoughts shapes our reality, and our reality shapes us.
We are granted tools of perception, energy, and mind, and how we choose to use these tools remain a personal choice. When we are spellbound by a thought, we seldom challenge the thought, as if the mind is always right in its projections.
We unconsciously direct the tools of our energy and perception towards shaping and moulding the single thought in to form and manifestation. Yet, when we decide to question the thought and actions we embark upon, we give rise to new possibilities and new higher perspectives to be birthed.
New ideations, and new potentials arise. The spell is thus broken from our willingness to question the thought. A wise person once said, our thoughts think us, we don’t think them. The question remains, how will you decide to step out of your thoughts before they consume your energy and mind?
What is victory without failing, for the sweetness of taste surely arises from the taste of bitterness that precedes it in failing.
To be victorious in an endeavour, we must know how it is to embody the greatness that arises from the victory. To fully embody this sense of order, we must first taste the misery that arises from failing, for one cannot taste or even know the sweetness of success, without having first tasted the bitterness of failing.
The two poles of the greater paradox are from the same spectrum. Failing and victory are part of the greater whole, and this journey we call life cannot exist without duality of senses, and perceptions. The wheel of karma that determines fate, can too be shattered through our perception and realisation of the existence to this greater dualistic whole. When we stop perceiving experiences as victory or failing, we begin to rise beyond karmic retributions that lock us in a wheel of repetition and suffering. The human conditioned mind is plagued with victory and failing that causes entire belief systems to be created in their name and pain.
When we hold truth to both sides being equally distributed as an experience, rather than a validation, we begin to steer and lead a life that is joyful despite conditioned projections. Rather, we become the master of our journey, rather than the passive observer and victim of circumstance. What is but the truth be known, that life is an extension of our perception, and our fortune, and misfortune, are all interictally woven by the sheer force of our projection upon the material manifestation. Projection that is so deeply imbued with conditions laid upon our mind and hearts by society and culture. We are spellbound to view victory as success, and failings as misfortune and worthlessness. Yet, when we view the cycle as a greater whole, we extend beyond the conditioned hypnotic cultural trance, and we begin to enjoy and revel in this marvellous journey of expansion and growth. This journey we know as life.
Let me remind you of your elegance, poise, beauty and grace.
Let me show you how to hold your head up high and know you will always rise.
Let me take you on a journey called life, imbued with emotions and desire, where you may feel that at times the currents will wash you off kilter, yet, the connection of your centre to your highest vision and spiritual tools is what shall liberate you back to your harmony and restored sense of balance.
The willingness to master the ability to rise above the emotional currents, is what will set you apart in self mastery.
The only strain is moving beyond the stored shame for who you really are, so that you may rise above the emotional chaos that seeks to drown out who you truly are.
The spiritual gifts we are endowed with are nestled on the crown of our head.
The gifts are residing in our intuition, in our natural self-expression, and in the way in which we carry our self in the world.
Our nature cannot but express who we are and our spiritual gifs – yet we will do our best to hide it, for we fear shame and retribution.
When we learn to hold our spiritual gifts in high regards, and step forth as who we truly are, we become enveloped in greatness, nothing can beat us down, nothing can hinder our progression to express the truth, and bring magic in to creation.
Yet, we must be willing to connect and accept the spiritual gifts we are carrying.
We must be willing to balance life in truth of these gifts and their relevance for our life path ahead.
When we hold on to our truth, we hold on to creation itself, and we realise how creation expresses though and within us, in every moment and in everywhere.
