The willingness and determination to rise up from the ashes is essentially the hallmark of why we exit on this tough and challenging planet. Adversities come and go, and yet the meaning we assign, and the virtues we master (or not) as a result of the experiences we live, are what remain with us at our Soul level. We carry the virtues we have mastered (or yet to be mastered) from life to life, incarnation to incarnation, body to body.
The imprints can remain as traumas, deeply scaring our mind, leading us towards living a life founded on fear and survival. Or we can choose to transcend the traumas and integrate the virtues, that enable us to live a life of virtue founded on liberation and self-mastery. The decision of whether we remain a prey to life’s circumstance is ours to make. Rising up from the ashes however bestows upon us a sense of authentic power that is all so expansive and illuminating. We don’t just rise, but we fly. We spread our wings, and we proudly stand upon the ashes that once served as adversities, and claim, that in fact, the adversities served as powerful teachers towards the art of transmutation. Transmuting the pain and suffering in to meaning and purpose is what we humans are here to experience and master. Mastering energy and its transmutation process is essentially what the earth school teaches us. Some repeat the lessons over and over, yet despite its repetition, something wonderful still occurs, the insights penetrate others in meaningful and illuminating ways. When we are willing to rise despite life’s trials and tribulations, life on earth becomes a rich playground for our own and the collective sense of mastery, serving as a potent path to liberation from the illusions encountered in life.
We are once again reminded on the law of mentalism, and that we manifest what we project mentally with passion and conviction. When we reside in survival mode of fight or flight, we are often swept by overwhelm of anxiety, panic, fear and stress. We see ourselves under attack, and we see life and its manifestations as a threat to our survival. We become overwhelmed by the scale of our anxieties and fears. However, our focus on our projected fears exacerbate the threat further, and in the absence of logic, the world becomes a dangerous place amassed with threats that lurk everywhere. In essence, we see what we are. Yet, we must be willing to see what calls to be harmonised and reconciled within us. No-thing is really a threat unless you become a vibrational match for its consumption. When we shrink our power against life, we become consumed by life. And we are exalted when we stand firm in claiming who we are, and claim to life itself that we are powerful beings beyond measure. This belief places you beyond the threat of being consumed by lower frequencies such as fear and anxiety. When we believe in our power as spirit manifested in form, we see how our projections can hinder us, or lead us to victory. The choice remains with you as a living breathing conscious warrior whether you choose to fight or you choose to love. We live in a universe that is governed by the mind. When we realise the laws of mentalism, we realise our true power, and we are able to extend beyond the projections of the mind that is so easily consumed by trickery. The 9 of swords is thus a card of revelation on the laws of mentalism, and how we can so easily be tricked and deceived by our own mind, and project fear and doubt towards life and our responsibilities. Yet the only escape from this threat resides within your own mind. Remember that all is mind, and life is a game of mentalism.
