Tarot: 4 of Swords

4 of Swords . . . . . 
~ Rebirth, Restructure, Renew, Revitalize, re-InVision
~ Ceremony takes you into non-ordinary reality, where time and space have a different meaning.
~ You are invited to take a time out from every day life today. Create a Sacred space within which to do ceremony. This will create a Sacred Space for you to work in, in order to uncover the next step in the creation of your waking dream.
~ Today is a day to engage with your dreamer, with the light side of your being, your inner knowing, your intuition. The day to play with new possibilities and create a new stream of intending.
~ This ceremony  can be as long or as short as you make it.

There is info on ‘Casting A Sacred Circle’ under todays Mayan Daykeeper below.

~ 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, focusing 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 Cheun ~ Cheun’s essence is the imaginative blending when we create alone or together, and the enjoyment that comes from these creations.

Those who are experiencing Chuen’s presence
may feel an energetic high and
a positive sense of power in their ability
to responsibly create their reality.

On Cheun’s day, you may experience creative,
artistic desires and abilities,
an openness to play and an ability to enjoy life.
It’s a day to be a conscious co-creator and a joyful,
positive participant in the creation of life.

Those born with Chuen as their Daykeeper
may be happy-go-lucky, enjoy responsibility or
be envied by others for their good fortune.

~ Intent: To create a sacred protected space in which to do ceremonies, rituals, healing

~ Location
Done indoors or outdoors, in a quiet space where you will not be disturbed. Circles can be as big or small as you want, make them to suit your needs.

~ Materials needed
… Wand (Optional) If you do not have a wand you can use both your hands clasped together palms facing inward OR a favourite pointy crystal, beautiful stick, etc. Something that is sacred to you and is pointy.
… Stick incense or smudge in any form
… Lighter
… Compass for cardinal directions
… Any supplies you may need for whatever work you are doing in the sacred circle
… 4 rocks or crystals to hold the energy of each direction… (Ask each one if it is willing to hold that energy)
Optional: the elements either in the centre of the circle or in each appropriate direction in glass or pottery bowls. You can use incense or smudge for air. If using a lit candle, ensure your circle is in a safe area & large enough that it will not be a fire hazard and respect all fire bans in effect. A candle, lit incense, piece of sage still burning can ignite a fire that can burn down an island, have care for that. On Gabriola in the summer, nothing that could start a fire outdoors, none, zilch, nada! It is your intent that is important, your ceremony will still work beautifully using unlit items (candle, incense, smudge).

~ Cleansing
Light the incense/smudge, waft it around yourself, the area, your wand & all items to be used. If it is safe to do so, otherwise use your intent with the item unlit.

~ Banishing
Standing in the centre of the circle hold you wand skyward with both hands. “I banish from this space, all energies & entities not of the light in all space time & dimensions. I say it is so, therefore it is so, I have spoken”. Then visualize a glowing ball of white light growing all around you, & explode it out past the edges of your circle.

~ Casting the Circle
Use a rock or crystal to hold the energy in each of the 4 cardinal directions. Draw a circle in your minds eye, draw a circle with chalk, make a circle with poured salt or a rope tied together, this is a personal choice. Decide what feels right for you. Then one at a time call in each direction as indicated below.

Standing facing the north of your circle on the inside edge. This is in the actual direction in relation to where your are on the earth. So you may need to use a compass. Walk from the North of the circle down to the East.
Facing the east, hold your wand with both hands out in front of you, invoke* the energies of the East.

* Invoking: Take your wand, start walking from the north to the east. Stand facing the east holding your wand with both hands out in front of you, or put your hands together using your fingertips as a wand. Now call in the energies of the east..

Out loud in a voice of power say: “I call in the energies of the east, the energy of fire, the sun, all the stars, illumination and enlightenment, I ask that you come into this east stone and hold a strong space for this …….. (your intent)” Do this in your own words adding anything else that you feel needs to be stated or prayed for.
Continue around the circle until complete
EAST: Fire, the sun, all stars, illumination and enlightenment
SOUTH: Water, sacred plants, trust and innocence
WEST: Earth, all planets, intuition & introspection
NORTH: Air, sacred animals, wisdom & knowledge

Standing in the centre of your circle, hold your wand with both hands skyward. Call in any energies, sacred ancestors of the light & deities of the light that you work with or are part of your spiritual practise. Ask them to be a part of this …….. (your intent) & to hold a space for you during this …….. (your intent)

The circle is cast, you are ready to begin your ceremony, ritual or healing work. Once the circle is cast do not leave it unless finished. If you absolutely need to leave briefly (washroom or item you need), you need to reseal the circle as you exit and re-enter. This can be done energetically with your intent. Visualize the circle being sealed. This is a protected space for you to do your spiritual work in, when you cross the boundary either way in or out, you are breaking the circle.

~ Completion:
Once complete say: “I thank & release all the energies that were present in this ceremony, blessed be, in beauty it is done.”

Clean up your ceremonial space, ensure that there is no opportunity for a fire to start, leave it in a state of beauty.

Ceremonies (unless communal) are private matters.
Keep the power of your experience within you.

Keep inside for 7 days

Then should you choose to share with another
always keep something for yourself
