The Correspondence Of This and That

The Meaning Behind Correspondence Lists

Think For Yourself

People have been making associations between all sorts of things in life, in spirit, and in nature, for thousands of years. Partly because of the belief that all things are connected and interconnected. Partly because humans want to believe that there’s meaning behind everything that happens.  Therefore it makes sense that some things work together, in a similar manner, in a supportive direction, or for a common purpose. But why are there so many contradictory lists?

Why do some people say a black cat is bad luck and others say it’s a good omen? Why do some people say red is anger and others see it as passion? Why do some insist that the cardinal direction for North represents Divine Energy and others insist that the Divine is located in the East?

The answer is pretty easy actually and we can thank Einstein for putting it in scientific terms. Everything is relative to location.

Your location in the world, the evolution of the culture you live in, the history of your society, even the spiritual beliefs practiced in your region can all play a part in defining a list of correspondences that may come across your path.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Swords –

9 of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Look to the animals who cross your path for the message you need to hear. Direct your energy to that which you need, instead of what you want. The big picture is helpful to know and plan. But the details are what you need to escape the thorns of stress and strife. Concentrate on the things you need to do to succeed for the here and now. Keep the plans of “want” on the side of your desk, but stop dreaming and start doing!

Even under the most stressful of situations, the Divine Universe is trying to help you out and give you guidance and direction. When you stop struggling against the tide and take notice of these little messages, you can break the patterns that hold you back and free your spirit to soar and succeed.

You do have to break a few eggs to make an omelet. And behind most problems in our lives, big and small, there is something that needs to be broken in order to bring about peace. Could be a thought pattern, could be a habit, a misconception or it might even be a relationship. But when we see the issue and are willing to accept and destroy it the negative, we find the creative energy from within to establish a new path to traverse toward what we need in the here and now.
