The world in our hands.
Blimey the universal comms team have dug into the archives today ... with a song from Laurie London
"He's got the whole world in his hands"...
I'm transported back to infant school assembly for this one.
This version is way before my time though with a 1958 rendition.
As the title implies, the song is suggests that God/ creator/ universe/ higher power ( insert your own preference) is in control of all aspects of creation and we should take comfort in his/ her/ their presence.
From the birds in the air and the fish in the sea to "little bitsy babies" and grown-up gamblin' men, everything is in the hands of a greater influence.
Of course there's a religious connotation to this well known song, however in the context of our storytelling today , it perhaps implies that there are things we can effect and things that outside of our influence or control and that as long as we do our bit ( the bit we can influence) then we can take comfort in the knowledge that we are doing and being all that we can in any given moment and circumstance, all else we can only let go and let God/ creator/universe/ higher power ....( add your own word) .... handle the rest.
Let's see what our cards add to this thought.
First out today is 0 The Fool. Leaning over that cliff edge we can see this young woman is on the cusp of a new beginning, ( see the seeds of life down below?) all it takes is a leap of faith.... a nice little seamless link perhaps to today's soundtrack?
She holds a beginners mind. Curious and open to all possibilities, not yet hindered by conditioning or doubt.
She holds an amethyst point in her hand. Amethyst is known as one of the master crystals when it comes to spirituality.
It is a powerful protection stone creating a bubble around the carrier, warding off negative energy.
Amethyst assists in encouraging our growth towards our higher potential and spiritual expansion. It also brings peace, insight and calmness.
Perhaps suggesting that although we find ourselves at the point of stepping out into the unknown ( that void again) , not knowing if we will fall or be held in saftey ....we have to hold faith that all will be well, as we move forward in this next chapter.
Our second card today is the queen of wands.( wands representative of the fire element and action)
She holds the spark in her hand , she's ready to step into her purpose. She is choosing love over fear, it's a time for bold action.
It's he time to shine that's for sure, her passion is palpable.
She's ready to create some magic.
As we step out over that cliff edge , we are in new uncharted territory, it's going to call on all of our creativity, inspiration, purpose and passion. We might not get it spot on from the get go, yet we're asked to give it our best regardless.
Our final card today is a return of the king of wands. He's the ultimate visonary , an entrepreneurial leader, charismatic with a strong presence in the world.
Wow what a combination the fool and both the queen and king of wands.... get ready for a new compelling vision folks, we are in for an adventure and there's no doubt.
Turning dreams and ideas into almost immediate action, this is going to be a very interesting time ......maverick....yes, quite possibly .... well let's be honest... most definitely.
That void just became a Time warp... thrusting us forward faster than we imagined possible.
It's like we just stepped into a vortex , like the ones in star trek and old space movies.... one that moves us through time and space at the speed of light.
Interesting times ahead, best buckle up !
