some of greatest personal tragedies is the fact that we become incapable of finding a way out of our circumstances, making everybody else the villain within the story of our surroundings..we become crippled with fear often leading to depression symptoms that paralyzes the ability to see clearly in a dense foggy situation that appears graver than it really is..
we begin to create a distorted reality of an untruth to fit the unhealthy chatter our mind chirps in order to pacify our decisions and reasons..we come up with grand excuses for our whereabouts and lack of participation and commitment when in truth there is nothing holding you to where you believe to be trapped..
in the eight of swords, the swan appears to be stuck down at the bottom of its hole of a hell unable to get out surrounded by the swords..there is death lurking all around it showing the swan the despair that matches its inner demons in a darken state of hoplesness ..there is so much ciaos going on around it leaving you to believe that the story doesn’t look so good..
if you really look at the situation, there is a breaking in the clouds above and a smaller bird trying to get the attention of the distressed swan to see the light..even though there are thorns on the surrounding trees, there is still the opportunity to become free if you can withstand the uncomfortableness for your personal freedom ..sometimes you have to hurt and feel really the pain in order to save yourself from the place you feel most stuck at..nobody ever said that living was going to easy with sunshine and rainbows, and sometimes life simply sucks balls but what you decided to do with it is completely up to you..
the second card is the lovers, which shows the harmony of the foundation and the stability of the environment creating a sense of love and commitment whether its to another or to the self you are mastering to be..there is a feeling of kindness, gentleness, compassion, love just by looking at the card that gives you that restful feeling that everything is going to be ok..
this card is an indicator card to follow your heart, follow the motion that guides you with the right reasons of love and a higher power of universal conscious..its a reflection that everything is according to plan and that when done in and with love, harmony and balance will prevail..its a reminder to continue to nourish the relationships that you have with your self and with others equally and feeding it with the proper nourishments that is required to make things flourish and grow..
sometimes we are trapped within the confinement of our own unhealthy mental space, unaware of the misfortune and treatment we are succumbing to and participating in without complete awareness..there are healthy appropriate ways to change and alter the course of your path even though it might cause temporary yet needed pain..it is within the destruction of our spirit that we are able to gain a much needed insight that develops when we change from being the victim to the warrior giving a much needed fighting chance to go from being the 8 of swords, to the ever abundant essence of the lovers in its full expression..
be brave and sort your shit out, one sword at a time cutting away at all the mental attributes that are negatively impacting you in a downer of a way..find the people who will encourage and applaud you to find the threshold that will separate you from those who have chosen to give up, verses those who believed and decided to ascend in their personal evolution rising to their highest greatest potential..peace love faith hope
