“We dream in neurons. Form lost in forms, a blizzard of data blinds our motors.” ~ The Six- Cornered Snowflake by John Frederick
She has made a few appearances the last couple of weeks. However, when I draw in the card for the week, I keep the first one that I choose. It was chosen for a reason. In the previous week we were able to let go and walk away from painful emotions. Now, we shift ourselves in the knowledge of what is working for us.
Now, we turn our thoughts to rooting in the ideas of what we have, and how to use these tools. We have, and will need, a softness in our approach. The light in this card is the unfailing ability to cooperate with ourselves and others. She is the one that urges us to speak kindly, even when we may not want to. She is the one that can ease the individual and collective consciousness down to honest words and thoughts. We need more of her right now.
We are in a space where the light in being sentient is snuffed out by the vulgar and ugly slack of others. Almost everyone takes in the glory of the world, but many never absorb it. There are so many ways to use our thoughts and words to shape something for the better. But sometimes it feels like we use these tools to merely survive the lacking stretch of humanity. Those who know the Mother of Swords, know this is not enough. We must plan, and then act.
I mentioned a couple of weeks ago some of the shadow energy of winged mother. Some of the energy is similar and worth noting. Card of the week: Reversed Mother of Swords
However, much of this shadow is external. If in the shadows, she can cause destruction and break down the foundation between us and others. She can cause the roots to die without a trace of evidence. If we breed toxicity in our minds, we will only have a toxic family. If we do not defend our lines, we will become the casualties of someone else’s mental games.
We must be first rooted in ourselves. We must take our river of doubts and insecurities and remember that they help make our own ocean. We would not know what we can fully do if we don’t acknowledge the things that may hold us back. But the Mother of Swords reminds us that firm boundaries are there to protect us. Being grounded in our honesty is hard. But there is bravery in knowing the distance between protection and tenderness.
