Page of Swords

The Page of Swords is on a journey, seeking balance, integrity and strength. This card speaks to a need for mindfulness and honesty.

When this Sword shows up, be prepared to face challenges that allow you to truly see who you are and what you are made of.

The Page delivers this message: "Look at these challenges as opportunities to grow and expand into your highest Self."

Life is filled with surprises, and the way you handle or react to what comes your way is indicative of where you are on your path. The Page of Swords has come to remind you to find your center, your peace. To look at what's in front of you with curiosity and ask, "How can this situation expand me and take me where I want to go?" Be playful with it, have fun.

It is time for you to get grounded and connect to your heart, to your truth. The appearance of the Page of Swords suggests that you may be in your head too much. Try not to overthink things. Get perspective so you will be more aware and more able to move through whatever shows up. Be assured opportunity will arise for you to demonstrate that you can be the calm in the storm, the eye of the hurricane. Balance and integrity are key.

The Page of Swords is also reminding you to speak your truth and do so with compassion. There have been many times when you keep your voice silent in order to avoid confrontation. However, to suppress your truth is to suppress yourself. You can speak from your heart with love, kindness and authenticity. It's time.

You may feel frustration with everything that is going on. You may feel like you have things coming at you from every direction. Remember to breathe, breathe slowly and deeply and pay attention to how this calms all your frustrations. Your breath is your bridge; it unites your mind, body and spirit. Use your breath to stay centered and you will be able to move through what seems like concrete roadblocks with greater ease.

Today's Meditation:

Find a sweet, sacred space and relax. Sit with a neutral spine. You can also lay down or sit with your back against a wall. The important thing to remember is to be comfortable!

Bring your attention to your breath. Follow your breath as it moves in and out of your body, relax even more.

Silently to yourself, or out loud, repeat the words: "I open my heart to receive."

Repeat this mantra over and over for 10-20 minutes (you can set a timer before you begin). When you are finished and have released the mantra simply sit in stillness for as long as you can and just listen!

Allow yourself to open to your heart's desire and know that you are moving in the flow of the universe.
