The Magician ~ Embracing Beginner's Mind!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is The Magician, representing: Beginnings, learning and discipline. The Magician is the first card of the deck, and perhaps the most significant, for he holds the key to all creation. His number is one, representing new beginnings and is the first step in the process of manifestation.
The ability to fully embody the present moment is the magic and the power of The Magician. Take a moment and imagine that there is no past and no future, only now—the present. It is in present time that all creation begins. This cards represents a time of new beginnings, the start of a creative process, or a new endeavor in your life.
As above, so below. Manifestation requires letting go of all distractions and focusing on the tasks at hand. Zen Master’s speak of a state of consciousness that comes only by quieting the mind. It is in the state of internal stillness, that one is said to become aware of the infinite possibilities! This is a time to be specific about what you want to create. Intentions are important now, as they are the foundation for all that will become.
The Magician indicates that you have the necessary tools, and may now feel inspired to develop and learn how to use them in a whole new way. In The Magician, we become the student, learning as we go. Here the concept of “beginner’s mind” is helpful—“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few” (Buddha).
The Magician’s Mantra: I am a conduit for unlimited possibilities.
Wishing you a magical week of new beginnings and powerful manifestation!!
