The perfect tranquility of life, which is nowhere to be found but in retreat, a faithful friend and a good library – AphraBehn
four of swords tarotKeywords:
Overwhelm, stress, recovery, retreat, Healing, gaining inner peace, self-protection, trust, hospital/illness, spiritual awakening or overhaul, sanctuary

As the four of Swords sits before us we are filled with a sense of melancholy and seriousness – In a sacred place a shielded knight lays still in dull earnest, with the Three Swords above his head and one beneath him, we see  he requires respite from what/where he has escaped.

As he is armoured we can assume he has come from a place of conflict, perhaps even warfare which required protection, and as the helmet is amiss we can see that the battle or issue is over, he has escaped.

four of swords trustThe three of swords above indicate he has moved from heartbreak and suffering, but they are still present in his psyche. The sword beneath him is one of hope – that in retreat and distance from the situation, in this sanctuary, the healing and protection will occur.

The stained glass picture in the far back depicts a peaceful image with a halo giving healing – this signifies their is an inner light still ablaze that can be ignited – there is hope. Although the person looks depleted and possibly broken from what came before them the message here is that with respite, removal from the situation and honest evaluation the person can recover.

The Four of Swords is about coming from a crisis situation and needing to retreat in introspection and relaxation to regain clarity and healing.

 

four of swords truthIn love it usually depicts a time of healing after an abusive of destructive relationship. In work it refers to similar – a time of resting and regaining confidence after an unpleasant or soul destroying career experience.

The swords are in the minor Arcana so they are minor stories of experience or external issues that influence our everyday life. Spiritually this card depicts a time away from the world to reflect, rest, recover and heal the mind by going inner.

The Four of swords can also literally mean a hospital respite – a time of healing from a medical condition. Regardless, it will always mean moving away from what is and recovering, either physically, emotionally, spiritually or mentally.

four of swords boundariesThe Four of Swords is asking you to stop – in many cases it is giving you a situation that will give you no choice but to stop, move away and recover. Things can not be the same as they were before.

There may be an element of isolation, wanting to seperate yourself from the entire world because of the 3 of swords that have come before – but the image of faith in the background is reminding you that with rest and healing you are safe and that not all situations are similar to what has come before.

The healing process is necessary and will be effective if you relent – surrender  into the vital process of inner searching, rest and separating self from past. Giving your self over to healing and accepting your own power in the situation and realising your own choices and decisions and beliefs that led you to this point in your life.

Four of swords healingAs you remove yourself from the past griefs and wounds you can heal into a new inner way and the armour can be removed and you can regain your inner power with an open heart :)

The Four of Swords is an opportunity after heartbreak to retreat and open up to your authentic self and begin over again. Rest, rest, rest and learn what fills yr heart with joy :)

Mindfulness – The power of Now
noun –

  1. the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something.
  2. a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.

mindful =ness meditation freeBeing open and actively present is what ‘they’ mean when they say mindfulness. It’s paying attention on purpose.
It allows us to reap full benefits of life, love and experience.

We have mostly all heard of Eckharte Tolle’s ‘The Power of Now’, in short he is referring to mindfulness, being in the now.

Buddhists, Indian sages and tribes all around the world have been practicing this for centuries, in one way or another, with great success in creating peaceful and harmonious communities. Psychologists, doctors, therapists and healers of all kinds are starting to advocate mindful meditation as a means to overcoming depression, anxiety, physical illnesses and other less than satisfactory states of being.

When we stop the mind chatter and go inner, we become aware of the thoughts, sensations and feelings that are directing our lives. With mindfulness we can begin a true and sustainable healing. We can begin to positively create our lives and manifest better situations, outcomes and life quality.

Simply, it’s a beautiful way to live ones life. Conflict begins to move away from our lives, perspectives change, healing occurs and real magic begins to happen.

I have made my Mindful presence guided meditation available free for anyone to use.
I have also included a Yoga Nidra – deep relaxation meditation free to use :)
Also Hypnosis meditation for positive thoughts
For full effects it is best to use daily.

I hope you enjoy.
and find peace in your life  :)

What you seek is seeking you – Rumi

This full moon eclipse is the last of the Tetrad that began in April last year. It’s been the most powerful awakening since 2012 as far as ‘self’ and relationships go; as the moon and sun have been playing hide and seek in the signs of Aries (self) and Libra (relationships).

runawayI have made this meme, as this eclipse feels like the end of a cycle in growth and these energies have been about an opportunity to let go of identification with self and old beliefs and thought patterns.

This full moon eclipse is unusual because it is not about endings per se, as most full moons are. It is about the new beginnings that are available to us after a process of endings :)

Those that have created new destinies and intentions from the heart over this period will breathe a sigh a relief and open their arms to the present joys as this eclipse peaks – this energy reminds me of this verse form the King of Cups:

Two of cups tarot meaningYou are a regenerator, as the card suggests; as you use your emotions inventively, creatively, which evolves into progressive proactive vitality. You are brave but gentle in your emotional life which creates a progressive drama free external life. You are warm and have open arms as you are not coming from a self-centered ambition but a more universal openness.’

Those that are just beginning to let go will experience a revelation or a situation that will give them no choice but to let go or move forward, It’s not quite like the Tower card energies of last April, but it may have a little sting that requires TLC. It feels more like the stage between the Six of swords and the 2 of cups. Being gentle and self compassionate are integral to a successful eclipse time here.

—————————————————–
Ten Of CupsEither way it is an opportunity for riding the waves of authenticity and creating harmony with the people who love you for your highest good. It’s all gearing us towards The Ten of Cups.

As the card depicts, the Ten of Cups is a loving and happy couple that are holding  each other at the waist, but each raise an arm in welcoming the future as individuals. It’s the essence of true love. There is a freedom in affection and lightness of spirit as they enjoy and celebrate their life.

This beginning is opening to you now. The choice is yours :)

May you celebrate this Luna eclipse

It is Full moon in Pisces ♓ in a couple of days, whilst Venus is retrograde

pisces full moonSo I’ve drawn her (Venus) in stillness and deep reflection as her emotional consciousness transforms.

She’s rooting herself in nature as the Pisces ♓ dreamy and emotional energies transmute.

She is emulating the Empress tarot card in all her glory.

The sun is in Virgo ♍ so it’s illuminating the mind and showing her in practical terms the steps she needs to take.

Venus is happy with her realisations and is enjoying the rebirthing of spirit…she knows love, she embodies love and she’s ready to ground the new found practicalities’ of her love with another.

The Pisces moon supports this by giving her the heightened emotions and astral insights…she’s patient though for she knows the mystical illusion’s of Pisces…she’s willing to act, she’s willing to proceed with humble invitation and humility cradled at her breast.

But she’d prefer to be met on middle ground. Keep it simple and real :)

emotions Pisces full moonPisces is a all about the emotions, so big emotions may arise from loss or even new situations. Emotions rise to show us, to teach us – allow them in, express them, move through them, share them.

It’s ok to cry.. It’s good to cry…

if you are sad or happy for that matter crying may be a release, an expression of an emotion and when we cry we experience an emotion, we step into and allow our humanness.

We also open up to truth and what is and this gives us an opportunity to grow and realise who we truly are and may even lead us to self forgiveness, or regret, or understanding… which can than lead to real positive action. *insert smile here*

full moon piscesI’m not saying we shouldn’t also smile at stages of grief, but if our emotions warrant crying then cry, don’t smile. That is were we get caught up in inauthentic living and stay stuck in old patterns.

We can use this moon and Venus retrograde to create a leap into expressions of our authentic self and to grow up into love :)
