8 of Swords. . . . .
~ Stuck in some self created illusion, make time today to sweep out the cobwebs and gain a new perspective. Cut through your bullshit with the 8 of Swords.
~ In some part of your life you have hit an obstacle.
~ The ego has been successful at derailing you, but that’s okay, contrast let’s us know what we don’t want so that we can see what we do want.
~ If you are stuck the use of humor as a strategy may help you gain some perspective. Intentionally catastrophize your situation verbally, until it is so ridiculous that you get to humour and a shift of energy.
For example: I’m extremely busy this month, if I go into overwhelm and use the above strategy it would look something like this.
(Talking to myself out loud)
‘I’m so busy I don’t have enough time to do anything, I’m so busy I just can’t eat this month because I don’t have time, I’m so busy that I’m really going to stink by the end of the month because I won’t have time to shower, I’m so busy that perhaps I won’t get to sleep this month.’ Take your statements to the point of ridiculousness with the increased pitch and speed that happens when you are overstimulated. I have found that it has helped me in the past.
~ 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 Ok ~ The essence of Ok is the pure energy of carnal yearnings. It is also an awareness of our connection to our primordial instincts & intuitive senses.
Ok may be experienced as a heightened sensitivity to your inner feelings and desires,
as well as enhanced awareness of your environment.
Ok may express as a strong desire, a sense of loyalty
or the need to allow desire to guide your actions.
Ok’s days are good for allowing yourself to be guided by your desires and intuition,
trusting yourself and enjoying every moment.
Those born on a Ok day may be loyal, flamboyant, intuitive
and available for the true desires of the moment.
