Seven of Fire: “Divination, Signs, Heeding Intuition, Looking Within, Seeking Answers, Discovery, Awareness, Trust”

Key Phrases: “Heed your intuition, a feeling of recognition, inexplicable coincidences, moments that repeat, personal interpretation is crucial, only you know the answer, look beyond the surface, observe and be aware.”

Card Meaning: “The Seven of Fire represents the development and use of one’s intuition to see the way forward, and predict possible outcomes. Intuition is that gut feeling – it is an instinctual or unconscious knowing – that, when you heed it, can keep you safe from making mistakes, and lead you to being in the right place at the right time. It is a feeling of recognition that we often ignore, but if we choose to heed, can have us moving through life in harmonious accord with our surroundings.

In actively using and then trusting your intuition on a regular basis, you may find you observe more, and in turn, you learn more. You start to see and take notice of signs and messages along the way. You take notice of those little inexplicable coincidences and moments that keep repeating, and, if you heed them, can take you on an adventure of discovery, revealing not only the truths you seek, but also your reason for being. Using and heeding your intuition can lead you to opportunities and experiences that offer the potential to both fulfill you and inspire others.

However, to trust in one’s intuition requires that you look within and determine what the message means to you personally. You can ask the advice of another. You can seek guidance from another. But only you know your answers. Personal interpretation is key. Trusting in the knowledge that is stored within your unconscious mind is key.

Third parties can offer insight, but they see and understand life through eyes that have been shaped and influenced by their own experiences, not yours. Only you know what something means for you, specifically. Only you know if something is right for you. The Seven of Fire represents a need to actively develop or trust in your intuition and instincts at this time. Look around you. Observe. Speak to the cards on a regular basis, and honour the truths revealed by going where your intuition leads you.”

Potential Blockage: “Divination means to foretell or predict the future. Sometimes, our intuition guides us, and at other times it is a simple awareness born of observation and paying attention. At other times, it is a marriage of both.

Every day we are given signs that, if heeded, can reveal what is to come. The Seven of Fire reversed, represents a need to watch for those signs and heed the insights they offer. Observe the people around you. Look closely at patterns of behaviour that repeat, and pay attention to words spoken that lack mirroring actions. Take not of promises broken, overreactions to questions, an inability to meet the eyes, and laughter that seems forced or contrived. They are all indications that there is more going on. Learn to watch. Learn to listen. Heed what your observations and senses are telling you. If you have a tendency to dismiss them, don’t. Don’t ignore them. If your gut tells you something is not as it seems, then look beyond the surface and see what is truly there… and then address it.

Seven of Fire as challenger cautions you against being dismissive. Pay attention. Look. Observe. Discern the truth. Address the contradictions and inconsistencies. See the signs – even the ones that might seem a little obscure and insignificant. They may foretell a future that is not in accordance with your goals.”*

Use your intuition. What is it telling you? This is your Higher Self, your Soul, talking to you. This is the way the guidance comes, through your body, through the whisperings of your heart. What feels light and right? What feels like it’s missing, or doesn’t sit well with you. Watch the people around you. Watch for actions matching words. This is authenticity, when promises are kept, and behaviour matches the talk. If they are not walking their talk, then you walk in the opposite direction, that one is not for you!

Do not override this guidance, it is a precious gift. Yes, you are right, trust in yourself. If you feel that feeling, and you just know something is not as it seems… trust that you are correct and wait for confirmation, it will come. Then listen to it and distance yourself. Create boundaries that allow you to assess the situation without getting dragged in, hook, line and sinker! Earth Angels and Lightworkers want to see the best in everyone, believe me, I KNOW! And yet, unfortunately, not everyone is in the place in their lives to give you their best, and you cannot fix them, or work on their potential for them. But you can bless and release them and let them go their own way, it is after all, their journey, just as this is yours.

Listen to yourself. Do not justify the behaviour of another for any reason. Be honest and true to you.

Namaste

Maui ~ Discovery

“Feel eager again for discovery and adventure. Curiosity may help you break barriers and solve problems.”

“Across Polynesia, from New Zealand to Hawaii, we hear stories about the hero Maui. Although the tales differ slightly from island to island and region to region, Maui’s exploits have given man fire, invented the kite, and even fished up whole islands for humans to live on.

Sometimes depicted as slightly disheveled and street smart, Maui manages to outwit his brothers and other opponents in his adventures. Other versions tell of a strong and mighty Maui, able to perform extraordinary heroic feats, but the common traits in most of his stories are his curiosity and urge for discovery.

Maui is the being responsible for introducing fire to man; in fact, he stole it from a bird. Maui and his brothers went fishing in the lagoon and happened to look back at the mountain near the shore. There was a fire burning. Man had not had fire for many generations, as the volcano that supplied the embers had ceased its rumbling. Racing back, Maui found only a wisp of smoke and a family of mud hens stamping the fire out.

every day thereafter, Maui and his brothers checked for fire but saw nothing. However, as they paddled out to fish one day, they saw a fire glowing against the mountain – out of reach again!

Now Maui had a plan. He decided to wait on shore while his brothers went fishing, but no fire appeared. Increasingly frustrated, Maui decided to make a life-sized doll of himself, and his brothers paddled out with it one fine day. this time, Maui would catch the birds at their fire.

Maui climbed up the mountain and found a hen just about to make the fire. Not waiting for her to start, he grabbed her and held her prisoner. Reminding him that if he hurt her, the secret would be lost, the bird convinced Maui to release her in return for the recipe for fire. The old hen taught Maui how to start a fire by rubbing special sticks together. Maui, quite the funny man, said to the mud hen, “come here, there is one more thing to rub!” And he rubbed the feathers on her head so hard that a bald patch appeared. Ever since that day, mud hens have had no feathers on their heads.

Maui’s sense of discovery also extended to creating a fishing hook so powerful that it pulled up whole islands from the ocean (to his utter surprise, mind you), and it is said that he created the islands of Hawaii in that way.

Call on Maui when you are eager for discovery, when you are working on solving a difficult problem and the answer seems far away, or when you need to find a little of the hero within yourself.”

Shadow Side: “Maui is a trickster and often makes his discoveries or gets his prize through stealing or, at the very least, outmaneuvering those in his way. While the end sometimes does justify the means, deceit and deception are not the ideal ways o get what you want. Maui’s appearance raises questions about our levels of authenticity, honesty, and contrivance.

We need to also monitor our levels of anger and frustration – sometimes humor can diffuse a difficult situation in the best possible way.”*

It’s time to get adventurous, shake things up a little! We get so stuck in our ruts, our comfort zones, and we are afraid to step out and change things.

What can you do differently today? Have some fun with it! Change up your routine, even if you have to stick to the plan. Wear something sexy and bright; take a different route to work; get a walk in at lunch time; call an old friend and laugh together; take a risk ask that special someone out on a date; pick or purchase some flowers for you or a loved one; surprise someone you love with some chocolate; try a new exercise class; do something you love to do that you have been too busy to do lately. Do something that makes you smile. Do something that makes someone else smile. Stir up the energy and see how it changes your day.

Rediscover your inner child. See each day as an adventure and make sure you stay flexible to accomodate some exciting surprises from the Universe… co-create a way more exciting existence for yourself! You deserve it, and joy, happiness and peace all start with little FUN!

Namaste
