My Meditation Journey | Episode 9

I’m starting this blog series in an attempt to find my way to “chill” because yo gorl has almost no chill – only now instead of that being a personality trait it’s causing hormonal fluctuations that my body doesn’t know how to process anymore which then leads to me passing out … which is no bueno. I consider myself agnostic because I’m not sure there is/are a god/s, but I’m not going to tell you they can’t possibly exist either. I do however enjoy the idea of trying out different forms of meditation to see if any of them will work for me, which brings me to my latest adventure – using tarot cards as a point of focus for meditation. Let’s see what cards I pull today, shall we?

Today I’m just pulling a single card without asking anything. It’s a rather dreary Monday, and I just want to see where the card takes me today.

Two of Swords

Emotion
Balance
Tension

I like how this deck has such a different depiction from the traditional two of swords. Instead of a blindfolded lady holding two swords erect across her heart, it depicts two unicorns fighting under a waning crescent moon. I think the waning moon typically symbolizes rest and recovery — I’m new to the whole field of witchery and the occult, so if I’m wrong please feel free to correct me in the comments. What’s rather funny to me is that according to my health data I’ve been collecting I should be taking today rather easy as a rest and recovery day if I want to have some better days later this week. Maybe this is a funny coincidence, maybe it isn’t. In either case, I’m definitely taking today as a chill day. We all need to balance our lives and allow ourselves to feel our emotions — something I’ve previously struggled with but am slowly getting better at. Finding that balance can be hard at first, but with time and therapy I’m working on making myself into a better person.

This card was pulled from the The Ink Witch Tarot Deck by Eric Maille which I used in conjunction with Rachel Pollack’s 40th Anniversary Edition of Seventy Eight Degrees of Wisdom.
