My question for today’s daily draw was: “What am I grateful for?”and while shuffling I noticed myself hoping for a positive card. Being grateful for the good things in life is the most easy part of practicing gratitude. But how about being grateful for the challenges in our life. We all know that the difficult situations are often our most profound teachers and they instigate growth on a much deeper level than the happy times.
Today’s card is the Eight of Scrolls, aka The eight of Swords. It’s the same card I pulled yesterday and I hope it is not going to be my stalker card again. In the depiction we see a visionary trying to makes sense out of all these scroll fragments. She is seeing them with her mind’s eye, swirling above her head. It is up to her to make sense of these snippets and weave a story for us and give us advice on how to proceed with our life. We all have an inner visionary, a part of our higher self, our intuition, who is able to connect the dots and make sense out of our own scrolls pieces. This is the part that knows the bigger picture; the how and why and it will steer us in the right direction with some wise and empowering advice. And no we don’t need a crystal ball. The only thing we do need is some peace and quiet to turn inwards and listen to the soft voice: our ultimate spiritual guide.
