Not sure if anyone else has been feeling this way but for me over the past few weeks the energy has been very disruptive. The energy has felt looming, heavy and overshadowing. There has been a real essence of shadow energy coming up correlating with the New Moon that just occurred on March 13. Lately, it seems that everything triggers me… and I mean everything!
I have been dealing with some very heavy personal upheaval since December but felt it really come to a head the past few weeks. At points in this journey, I have had questioned if I have the internal strength to continue dealing with these events, as the lessons coming up are hitting me faster than I can process.
So as always when I get too much in my head, I pull some cards to refocus. I asked for guidance. Guidance or a message that myself and others needed to hear.
These are the cards that presented:
Four of Swords
When I pulled this card, I just shook my head (as the cards never lie) this image is perfect for how I have been feeling the past few weeks. It represents retreat and rest. It’s all about putting on a brave face and hiding your mental and emotional pain. Showing people, a happy face when you feel like screaming. We need to step back and take time to digest the experiences that are happening to us. Not everything can be resolved in a timely fashion. Life is not a checklist of accomplishments. Sometimes in order to learn the lesson, we need to stop and process what is presenting. The person is laying on a cloud which represents over-thinking. The goal is to process the thoughts but not to become focused and overwhelmed. The Awen (rays of light) remind us that we have a connection to an angelic team supporting us. We are protected (swords) it is ok if we need to take a step back. Ask for help.
This card speaks to carrying an overwhelming load for too long. It’s to find relief from within by taking time to process and releases the thoughts and feelings that are surfacing.
Sidenote: I was interested in knowing what flower she was holding so I looked in the booklet (it’s lemon Balm – used to lighten the mood and to help release feelings of anxiety – hence why it is blowing away in the wind) There was an affirmation quote on the page that really spoke to me “I have Carried the burden for long enough. It is time to let it go. I release the burden to the Divine and accept the relief that comes as I let go. I let myself rest.”
When things are feeling off and out of wake know that you have access to the key to the missing key to gain access to understanding. There is much darkness around you. Find the light. Sit in stillness. Connect to your ancestors and spirit guides gain the knowledge and wisdom=m to become clear. Stop and allow the chaos to become calm. Trust that the key will reveal what you truly need to know/understand.
