The Nine of Swords ~ Be Kind to Your Mind!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Nine of Swords, representing: Mental cruelty, self-doubt, punishment and internal chaos. Ouch! The Nine of Swords is like a mental implosion, when your internal dialogue and negative thinking become so overwhelming, you, yes, literally implode! Causing great distress and taking you out of your personal sovereignty.
Don’t panic! Instead, do just the opposite. This is a time to breathe and breathe again. When you are over-worrying and future-izing, your mind goes into high alert, causing a state of "mind smog". Much like polluted city air from too much traffic, too much busy-ness and everyone running around trying to get ahead, your thoughts can be busy bees, distracting you from what’s real. Instead, ground your reality in your body, and the current moment--this is where your power lies.
The Nine of Swords says it is time to clear your mental pollution. As simple as it sounds, one way to do this is by being kind with yourself and your thought process. It would be easier to be confused and frustrated, but that’s just mindless drama. Stop torturing yourself with indecision and what should be, and begin to trust yourself. You know what's right and real, so let all else go. As you say "no" to mental cruelty, you will experience a peace of mind that is rejuvenating and powerful.
Wishing you a mentally cruel-free week!
