Weaver Of Words
The Moral Of The Story Is: “Small ideas with big potential, ideas taking off and taking form. The power of words, tact and diplomacy. Writers.”
“Armed with new information, members of the Fellowship use the diversity of their skills to chart their course and forge a plan to invade the Dark Kingdom. Recognizing the strengths gained from magical helpers who have aided them on their journey, they seek out assistance from the Weaver of Words.
The Seekers wait, mesmerized by the golden cloud of letters that jostle and juggle as if to her will before she plucks them from the air, spinning the words like yarn from her pen, as she weaves the fabric of their destiny upon the page.”
Card Definition: “When we read great works by celebrated authors, we can be left in awe by the magic they have woven with their pens. They take an idea, then skillfully and creatively craft the words upon the written page into a work of art that holds us spellbound.
The Weaver Of Words card shows small ideas with big potential, ideas taking off and taking form. Whilst the process may begin with a small idea, it is then the careful work you put into something that will ultimately transform it into a successful outcome.
This card may also remind you of the power of words, for just as the Weaver Of Words plucks them from the golden cloud that surrounds her, it is how they are used and ordered that can either elevate or destroy, and so it may advise tact and diplomacy at this time.
For writers, this card may be representative of the craft.”*

As Twitter has shown us, words are extremely powerful; maybe more so than we have given them credit. Words can be used to praise and uplift, and words can be used to provoke, disturb and belittle. Every word uttered has a vibration, an energy that accompanies it. Every word spoken aloud has an impact, either positive or negative. Written words have longevity, often carrying emotions long past the time they were written; the author may have found peace while the words still hold their punishment. Words can soothe, they can persuade, they can celebrate or they can condemn. Words can make the heart soar; as they can crush it to smithereens. They can embolden, invoking courage or they can frighten and coerce. They can speak the heart’s deepest desires or be dangerous, deceptive, false or misleading. Words can be used to paint colourful pictures and bring stories to life in our wild imaginations; they are the tools of our ancestors who passed their heritage on from spoken word to mind and heart. Yet we often throw them around without a thought of how they may affect others; or come back to haunt us. Once out there, words cannot be retrieved.
I started this blog because I want to help us feel better about our lives and our role in creating our reality. More in control. Empowered, individually and collectively. I desire to connect us with something higher and more profound than what we would see on the news; which always appears full of fear that is constantly threatening to suffocate us. I want to plant seeds of hope when we don’t know what to do; when we feel alone, isolated, or weary of the world. I want these words to heal, to protect, to inspire and motivate. To uplift. To assist people to shut the doors that need shutting. To throw open the new doors fearlessly. To dream bigger. To aim higher. And to have faith in themselves and the power of the Universe. I do it to teach; myself and others. I am learning too as I go.
We are working through middle school here at home. Learning the power of words when used to sting, to bring someone down, to compete and win. We are learning that words spoken behind someone’s back often boomerang right back around at you. And that a kind word uplifts not just the receiver but the speaker too. We are learning the power of compassion and acceptance, for self and for others, and using our words accordingly.
Words are powerful tools. Use them at your discretion. Be mindful of what you are putting out there; and know that somehow, someday, it will all come back to you.
