Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Eight of Swords

Eight of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Try not to let the anxiety of this week tie you up in knots. The self punishments are not going to ease the stress and frustration. Keep your outlook positive and you will discover the missing pieces to understand the events around you. Everything happens for a reason, in its right time and place. You are surrounded by love and compassion, even though you don’t feel it sometimes. It’s there, it has your back, and it’s ready to help in any way possible. Sometimes all you need is a hug. Don’t be afraid to ask for one.

Additional Insight:

Sadly when we become over stressed, we often fall on the side of thinking the worst. Your cable, internet or cell phone service goes out and the first thing you think is “didn’t we pay the bill”? Only to discover that yes you did and all that’s going on is a service outage caused by Sun flares or construction work have interrupted your day. It’s not you, it’s them.

Instead of seeing these moments of frustration from a place of anxiety, take a moment to be Mindful and look around your situation. Everything happens right when it should. So ask yourself, why are you being held up? What’s happening to slow down the process? Did you ask for it out of worry and thinking the worst? Or could there be a better outcome for you if things went slower so you can achieve what you need, even it’s not what you want in that exact moment.

Sometimes when you don’t really want to do something, but you feel you’re in a no win situation and must do it; the Universe steps in to help. Maybe you’re being held up at this moment in time to give you more time to find an alternative, or to present a better solution. Maybe you don’t have to do the thing you don’t want to do, you simply had to be patient.

Sometimes our desire to overcome and get on the other side of the mountain before it’s time, can bring us to the end of the road and our work fails as a result. We discover we’ve walked over the crest only to find a cliff with a sheer drop that cannot be traversed. But if we take our time and go with the flow, the road leads to a grand bridge that crosses the chasm of struggles. One that provides us with safe and easy passage to the other side where we find exactly what we’ve needed all along.

Thinking the worst only ties your emotions up to the wagon of assumption and fear. Start thinking about the best outcome and you’ll feed that perspective with courage and strength to manifest in your reality. Don’t settle for second best when you dream or wish for particular outcomes. Don’t set limits on your goals. Put out the ultimate desire and you might actually receive it. Don’t put your hard work in a container that keeps you from expanding and achieving your goals. Be the container and you can allow it to grow and expand as you work toward those unlimited goals.

Don’t be contained, be the container!
Your method of travel can be an Armored car, guarded in constant fear,
or it can be a convertible with the top down, ready to fly free!

If you create a habit of always thinking the worst, you’re eventually going to create what you fear each and every time something happens in your life. Change your automatic reactions to positive habits. Always think the best and go about working the issue as needed, but with a positive flow energy. You’ll find your pattern of abundant thinking brings you more prosperity as events manifest before your eyes. Be the container….not the contained.
