Ace of Swords
Today’s challenging message comes from the Angel of air, the one who is skilled with words, the one whose thoughts are sharp, articulate and wise.
“You’re horrible, who do you think you are? No one will love you, just look at you, you’re not good enough, you don’t deserve that, no one would want you, you look awful in that”.
These are just a few examples of the type of hurtful phrases that you’ve directed toward yourself over the years. Like deep wounds upon your soul, they leave weeping scars, begin to change the relationship with ourselves and build barriers towards others.
All Aces within the tarot are good, they bring gifts, open doors and new opportunities. There is no symbol more apt for a messenger than an Angel, a celestial being sent from the holy one, the bearer of light and good news.
Now here is the healing message today. Like a watchman who stands guard at a room full of treasure, you are urged to monitor the thoughts that flow through the sacred space of your mind.
These are the thoughts that help to build a positive relationship with ourselves. For you wouldn’t stand by while others throw abusive remarks towards those you love, and the same should apply to yourself.
Within the Angel’s hand is a lofty sword, this is the sword that is needed to guard the thoughts we allow to pass through our mind. Within the other, is a sprig of sage, a sacred herb used by the wise ones to bring comfort and healing, to cleanse the old wounds that need to be healed.
Make a renewed commitment to love yourself more deeply, to place the gentle hand of forgiveness around your precious soul. For the life you’ve been given is sacred, a gift from the beloved. None of us are spectators, for we are here to live life fully, to honour and respect the magical journey and experience of life.
Hear the soft wings of the Angel nearby, the air around you is moving, to the side of the Angel, is a butterfly in flight. A symbol of metamorphosis and change. It’s time to renew your relationship with yourself. To be kind with your thoughts, slough away negative criticism or words that cause you harm.
The Angel loves you, and the love for yourself will affirm your love for the Angel. A cycle of the mystical truth, for when we learn to love ourselves more completely, we build a stronger bridge with ourselves and the divine.
