What a wonderful day. You feel open and loving and willing to let the world know – at least if they ask. You might not feel like running out and embracing everyone you see, but there’s a sense of contentment and well-being that’s impossible to ignore.
This is an excellent time to enjoy and share. Be generous with your feelings. There’s really nothing to fear in letting people know you care.
Give as you can and laugh out loud as much as possible, even when you’re alone. It may have been some time since you’ve felt this good. Enjoy. You deserve it.
When I look at the woman in the Rider Waite Smith version of the 2 of Swords card, I imagine her being in a state of meditative calm. I see her sitting quietly in front of the big water focusing her mind and breathing in and out in a steady relaxed rhythm.
Finding our own way to such calm can sometimes be a challenge, especially when our breathing is neither steady nor relaxed. That’s where power breathing can help us out.
In the Big Think video below featuring Jane McGonigal, we’re taught not only how to power breath, but also why it can be even more effective than deep breathing to help us achieve the mental calm pictured in the woman from the 2 of Swords. Take a look…
This is a good day to give your spirit some serious attention. Take a little time by yourself to think about what it is that you believe. What do you think of the world and your place in it? What ultimately gives your life meaning?
It’s also a good time right now to pay attention to the messages other people have been sending you. Let yourself absorb the world around you without feeling the need to jump in right away and take action. This is a better time to sit and receive than to act.
Observe, listen and think about what it is you’re doing. Through reflection you’ll start to see all sides. Through this wider perspective you’ll find the priorities and direction that can help you on your path.
You’ve worked hard for your keep, with discipline and perseverance. Physically, some important goals are finally being achieved.
You’re moving towards a place where you feel more at ease, towards a practical stability. The fruits of your labour can now be recognized and finally enjoyed.
Take some time today to quietly congratulate yourself. You’ve worked hard and deserve what you’ve received. Though the road hasn’t always been easy, developing patience and inner strength will prove well worth it.
It’s a day of dynamic action. You know what you want to do, you know what you need to do and you probably know how to do it. Just go ahead and make it happen. Your mind’s working overtime and at lightning speed. Flow with this powerful energy and charge towards you goals.
You might find it difficult to focus on just one issue. Two or three different ideas or projects are dragging you every which way. Don’t worry. Do what you can and focus on what’s in front of you when it’s in front of you. Reign your mind in. One thing at a time and it will all get done.
