Tarot: 8 of Swords

8 of Swords . . . . .
~ Do you feel stuck right now? Is it perhaps a self-created box you have put yourself in?
~ Good news what you create, is a guide to the next step of creation. If it sucks, how can you change it? Do you want to change it, and if not, how is this box you have created serving you?
~ Getting some perspective from a place of neutrality is often one of the keys to making a  change. If you have a Sacred Circle in the physical or etheric realms, look at your situation from within your Sacred Circle. Within your Sacred Circle, neutrality is easier to access.
~ A willingness to trust yourself and apply the knowledge will shift your situation if you choose to do so.
~ Yes it may really be challenging (a.k.a. ‘This friggin sucks big time’), but even this can be experienced in a different way. Trust me when I tell you that when I go through transition and change with a sh_tty attitude things do not shift as quickly or easily. If I can shift my attitude, which for me often requires humour, you can actually discard experiencing change as ‘hard’, and just experience it as change with a curiosity to see what you manifest next. (Do not chuck your computer, iPad or phone across the room, this would qualify for ‘Hard’ status.)
~ No matter what the situation you are in, it’s your response to it that defines your experience.
~ Mayan Daykeeper Ak’bal is present today, it’s a good day for ReCreation
Should you wish to know how to make a Sacred Circle contact me. I have a free handout that I can send you.

~ Set your intent to play with this, rather than it being all serious with a pass or fail mentality.  Intuition takes practice.
~ Set your intent to hear the intuitive messages from spirit that you get today from being present with the photo above.
~ Find a quiet place to be present with the photo. (If the kids are running around the room you’re in, forget about it, find another room)
~ Breathe deeply for a few moments, focussing on your breath. This will bring you into a more balanced intuitive state. If your internal dialogue kicks up that’s okay, just notice it and let it pass on through your mind not engaging with it, and focus on your breath again.
~ Notice what attracts you about the photo. As a symbol what does this mean to you and your life walk?
~ Notice any ‘thoughts, images, colours’ that pop up not from your brain, but rather from your gut or elsewhere. (If it’s from your brain that is your ego chatting away, trying to distract you from hearing your intuition.)
~ What do those thoughts, colours, images mean as symbols or otherwise to you specifically and your life?
~ Right them down. Then you have them and can ponder on them any time you want during the day.
~ If nothing comes, do not, I repeat do not beat yourself up, this is playtime remember. Go about your day, something may pop up during the day unexpectedly. If not, no matter, there’s another photo coming tomorrow to play with.  Intuition takes practice.


WHAT IS THIS POST ABOUT – I pull a tarot card every day from the Mayan Xultun Tarot Deck by Peter Balin. Due to honouring copyright I do not post a photo of the card but instead I post a photo of something that resonates as a mirror for that card, from my perspective. It is up to you, to interpret what the photo’s message is for you each day. Play with tarot, see what your intuitive messages are.

Your interpretation and experience is your own. I can only share my personal understanding, I invite you to find your own truths and their relevance in your life. This is really important. If something resonates great, if not chuck it out. We gain nothing by ‘taking on’ others life experiences and beliefs. The juice and healing comes from within your own understanding, it is pivotal for your healing journey and manifesting what you want.

Mayan Daykeeper Ak’bal ~ Ak’bal’s essence is recreation, the beginning of something due to the old & the new coming together. Every moment is created by combining something from the past with something new. 

Ak’bal manifests as a completion and the natural beginning
that immediately follows.
Ak’bal’s presence is like a mystery being revealed.
It happens only after something else, something necessary, happens first.
Ak’bal guides what and when something is revealed, as it comes to light out of the darkness or from the consciousness from the unconscious.

Ak’bal’s day is for revelations and for the next generation of truths to manifest.
Be open to new messages or information appropriate for the
immediate present or future, but not for the past.

Those who are born on an Ak’bal day are dreamers and visionaries.
They desire to bring forth something new in the natural evolution
of what is becoming outdated or complete.
