Whatever the actual meaning of this card my immediate response to the image is that I need to reconnect with that innocent, child-like energy we all have. That inner part of ourselves that still believes in blowing on “wish flowers” and that spirits live in the plants around us. That part that knows there are faeries in the world and if we are very still, quiet and lucky maybe we’ll actually see one.
On another level I think this card is reminding me that there is a cycle to everything and my life will eventually change for the better. I need to focus on what my wishes are. It’s been so long since I’ve really focused on what I want to do as opposed to what I can do or what I need to that I can’t remember anymore. What were my wishes when I was younger? Where did I see myself when I grew up? I’m not sure but lately I’ve been feeling an urge to tap into some unused creative energy, at least in a simple way – personalizing my Franklin Covey planner.
The King of Swords reversed is reminding me that now is not the time to be hypercritical of myself. I need to do some exploration and find the patterns of my youth. Logic is a very useful tool but right now it isn’t going to help me scratch that itch to feel more creative. I need to trust in the process and not let my left-brained side take control.
These two cards show me that I need to focus more in silliness, lightheartedness and simple joys. I’ve taken to decorating my personal calendar and organizer with rubber stamps, colored jelly roll pens and Post-Its of various size and color. Now I’m toying with the idea of getting an inexpensive organizer/planner that I can recover and personalize even more. I realize this is not a new idea but it’s something relative simple I can do that will help me scratch that itch. Once I’ve done that I might even explores some other creative endeavors – who knows?
