Hello beautiful beings!
I've really been resonating with the 7 of Wands lately. In fact, that was one of the cards I pulled in my reading the night I decided to devote my energy to this little beauty that's shaping up to be Gypsy Soul Reiki. I was guided to meditate on this cards, so when I went out to the backyard to practice some root chakra yoga, for the chakra program I'm developing, I took my trusty tarot cards out there with me.
I spent a few minutes calming my mind, and then started writing down my notes for the card. After I felt satisfied with my notes, I spent a few more minutes meditating, when I got a new insight. This time, it was a short message from Spirit:
Sometimes the only thing that keeps us going is the fire inside of us, urging us to stand up for what is right and just. No matter how much the odds are stacked against us.
In the card we see a man standing on a cliff, wielding a stick against 7 others who are attacking him. Since the man is standing on a cliff, we are reminded to be constantly alert to the motivations behind our decisions. Be sure that we maintain the high ground at all times. I can't put it much better than Malala Yousafzai, a young woman who was shot in the head by the Taliban for standing up for her right to education. She really encompasses the spirit of the 7 of Wands. If you haven't watched her interview on Jon Stewart's Daily Show, I highly recommend it. There are three clips, so be sure to watch them all. In the interview, she says:
If you hit a Talib with your shoe then there would be no difference between you and the Talib, you must not treat others that much with cruelty and that much harshly, you must fight others but through peace, and through dialogue and through education.
Spirit tells me that many of you might be feeling like you are backed up against a wall, and have nowhere to turn, that you are constantly exhausting your energies fighting those who appear to be against you. We are reminded to take others into consideration when making decisions, but to ultimately choose what resonates with us in our heart.
