I had to really think, have we had this tune before... maybe we did ?
What I do know is, it was my personal theme tune to a retreat I did earlier this year in Cornwall with my own tarot mentor and a group of amazing women. So if we have had this track from the universal comms team previously, they bring it forward again ( note to self, scroll back through previous posts)
With so much external chatter going on, from the media, the public and on the many virtual platforms, its no surprise that we sometimes forget that our greatest teacher is inside of ourselves... hence its called "in tuition". Life is a long term school, we are never done learning, we are eternally in tuition.
I guess its a reminder to us to ask those important questions of ourselves right now, whilst we have the opportunity to do so. What are we learning, about ourselves, our life and the world ?
So on to our first card of the day, the 5 of cups (cups representative of the water element and of feelings and emotions)
Bless her, she is mourning her loses once more, perhaps being drawn to the edge of the abyss. And yet there is a new path opening up , way onto the horizon, she just hasn't recognised it. She has so much to be grateful for, if only she were able to shift her focus. Gentle nurture mends this bruised heart. There is a bright future waiting.
Our second card is the ace of wands ( wands representative of the fire element and action)
Number 1 is known not only as a symbol of new beginnings, but also as a symbol of motivation, self-leadership and intuition. If we decide to start a new phase in our life, which is kind of inevitable in our current world, then we should listen to our inner voice, because this way we will be in a permanent connection with our higher self and our true purpose. In the card , we see a face; eyes closed, with a bright flame in the area of the third eye chakra.
The sixth chakra, also known as the brow chakra, the Third Eye chakra, the inner eye, or “Ajna” in Sanskrit, correlates to our mental abilities, psychological skills, and how we evaluate beliefs and attitudes.Sitting between our eyes and being physically connected to the brain, pituitary and pineal glands, this is the mind chakra.
It resonates with the energy of our psyche, as well as our conscious and unconscious psychological tendencies.
This is the chakra of intuition, wisdom and our sixth sense. In Eastern philosophies, it is known as our spiritual centre, which interacts with the rational mind in order to deepen our intuitive insight to see beyond the veil of illusion.
The symbolism of the Third Eye Chakra is acquiring wisdom beyond our self-inflicted perceptions. It is breaking down stereotypes, seeing beyond the illusion of the media and achieving detachment from societal realities.
The power of the Third Eye Chakra is witnessing your freedom beyond the realms of ‘realistic illusion.’
Ultimately nothing is holding us back – it is only our mind that has power over us and if we can control the mind, we can then ascend any limitations we currently have.
We also see what looks like fishing net, strung across the head of this figure.
Nets indicate confinement and often are reflective of anxiety and of being unsure about our own life.
Appearing in our story today, it may be that we are being asked to consider where we are focusing our thoughts.
Are our internal thoughts fruitful or poisonous?
Are we following our inner wisdom, ideas and intuitions, or listening to external influences?
Our final card today is 2 The High Priestess.
Her eyes maybe closed but her inner sight is clear. A stream of loving communication streams into her crown chakra.
The crown chakra is also known as the sahasrara chakra. It is the energy center of universal knowledge and spiritualism which connects us to the divine. The crown chakra influences the brain and the nervous system, as well as the emotions and the level of understanding and enlightenment.
In her aura we see runic symbols, perhaps depicting our earthly being connecting into the lake of all possibilities, a higher knowledge, enabling us to uncover our true nature of joy. Around her we see the turquoise colour of spiritual growth and change.
Our overall message today appears to be nudging us to reflect on where we are putting our focus. Urging us perhaps to tap into our limitless intuition and potential.
Intuition is defined as an ability to understand or know something immediately based on your feelings rather than facts.
The ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning.May we be inspired to trust in our intuition so that we may live in true alignment to who we truly are.
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” Albert Einstein
