Nine Of Swords:

“Stormcrows herald impending dissolution
with voices cawing raucous absolution
round and round and spiraling ever near
one future sought – one future feared.”

“The funnel of the sky stretches up to the heavens, an ominous tower of storms with only a tiny glimmer of hope lighting the eye of turmoil high above. “Come to me, come with me,” the voice of a stormcrow whispers to him from nearby. “Let me guide you through.” With anxious eyes, he gazes upwards, away, oblivious to the proffered guidance through the dark night of the soul. He clutches a sheathed sword close for security, though he could easily grasp its bright blade aloft to light the way. But he is ignorant of that beacon he holds so tight, or perhaps too weak hearted and tremulous to wield it.

He suffers from anguish. The swords tattooed upon his breast are pinpricked markings of the regrets he experiences. He is tormented by inner fear, anxiety, guilt, and uncertainties in the night. He is a being of the air – his wings should carry him aloft, and the sky should be open and expansive and a world of freedom. Instead, it feels like a trap closing its jaws upon him with the howling winds of the approaching storm. And yet, if he were to just cast aside those doubts, he could be as free as the stormcrows that spiral in untroubled arcs above.

The Nine Of Swords swirls with inner turmoil. It is a moment of vulnerability, with the soul laid bare to its own demons. Guilt and fear lock muscles into immobility. Understand the source of those fears; learn what they mean and where they stem from. Know that the strength to break free of those shackles lies within one’s own heart.”*

This is a message about facing your fears, releasing yourself from feeling stuck by your circumstances, and daring to create something new. Fear is holding you hostage in more ways than you realize. Emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. Vibrationally. Look at it closely. Where is the fear coming from? Is it so ingrained that you are used to it? Are you feeling like a victim of circumstance in your own life?

It’s time to create something new. Release the old scars, the regrets, the pain of the past. It is time to soar above the drama and the limited perceptions of what is possible for you. And the only way to do this is to take full responsibility for everything that has happened in your life and learn from it. See the lesson and let it all go. Focus your energy elsewhere, away from the old habits and ways of being in the world.

The birds in this card represent freedom as they soar up towards the portal of light and infinite opportunity. He is so aware of the pain of the past it is literally engraved on his chest; yet he fails to notice his own big, beautiful and powerful wings, where his guide stands trying to get his attention; to offer support. Yet he looks the other way. He thinks he needs a sword to fight his way through life, yet what he needs instead is to trust in his ability to rise above it all and create something new.

Look at your own life. Where are you being held back by the past? Are you seeing the Light being offered to you now? Where can you shed the old pain and the weight of past regrets and mistakes and find renewed strength and courage to release all the old and embrace a new lightness of Being? Trust in yourself and your own big beautiful, powerful wings to take you where you need to be. For the Highest Good Of All.

And so it is

Namaste

The Singer Of Connection

The Singer Of Connection: “Spiritual connection, Karma, Balance, Empathy”

“This Singer supports all connections, the web of light between all beings, all particles, and between past, present, and future. It brings wholeness to apparent duality and combines all energies, uniting all that was, is, or could be. When we lose awareness of this connection in our lives, we feel isolated, lonely, bereft. Yet the energy is there. We only need to be open to it.

There are emotions that help us open up  – love, compassion, trust, and so on. There are other emotions that we tend to close down around unless we make a special effort to keep our hearts open. As you can probably guess, these emotions are feelings such as jealousy, anger, fear, grief, and others of a similarly painful nature. Yet, sometimes, these very emotions, when carried to an extreme, cause us to break down and then break through to the song of Ekstasis. This is a risky way to go as well as an extremely difficult one, because more often the breakdown just stays broken for a long time and then we retreat back to a more crippled version of our original selves.

A far better way to become ever more aware of our essentially holistic nature is to work at keeping our hearts open, seeing relationships, being earthed and centered and connected. In a meditation, someone (and I suspect it was this Singer) asked me to let go of all of my defenses. I argued that surely we needed defenses in this world in order to survive. I was firmly but lovingly told, “It is only by letting go of all your defenses that you become invulnerable.”

That gave me such a strong shock of recognizing the rightness of it that I couldn’t even breathe for a moment. But then, still reluctant (because it sounded like a big job), I muttered that I didn’t think I knew how to do that or even what all my defenses were. I was assured kindly that I would receive help if I asked for it. And I know that you will be given the same aid, too.

Starter Reading: “Through the power of this Singer, all connections are made, held and released, as appropriate. In a reading, this Singer indicates the connection of things, especially reconnecting those that have been sundered. It is unifying and reunifying. It tells us that we need to be aware of the connections between different aspects of the issues under discussion, as well as the connections between the people linked by it. We also may need to build more connections, a network of mutual support.

The presence of  The Singer Of Connection in a reading indicates support and strength flowing through the connections between those involved.”*

Can you feel your deep connection to everything in existence? Can you see the Light that shines in others, shining from your own eyes in the mirror? This profound connection is the magic of the Universe. It is what weaves us all together. It is what allows us to feel on a deeper level, and what leads to the mass or group consciousness during this ascension.

Open your heart to everything in existence. The birds, and animals and plants and flowers. The insects and trees and creatures of the sea. What do you feel when you focus your energy and intention on another being? Can you feel the warmth and Love that exists within them, even if they themselves cannot feel it (yet)?

This is not vulnerability, this is expansion of awareness. It is allowing ourselves to be a part of the All. It is bypassing the ego’s need to keep us isolated in the name of  “safety” when what we desire most is the connection. Connection is healing, it is alignment. It is Faith. Trust in the thread of Love that weaves us. Trust in the existence of Light within all (Yes, even him!). There are no exceptions, only one’s who live in the state of isolation.

Open hearts and open minds lead to the connection. It is safe to feel. To be a part of it. It is a vital stage of the raising of our consciousness. Allow it to be.

Allow yourself to fearlessly connect through the Light of your Heart.

Namaste

Dee
