One black wand burning a bright light within the darkness. Six wands part ways for one flame to burn through all adversity. Seven of Wands reminds us who we are and to allow ourselves fully to express naturally what we love to do. Pure self expression, without shying away. Are we backing down from our power, or are we fueling the fire that keeps us vibrant and alive?
Seven of Wands is showing us when everyone is saying no to our dreams and visions that we must stand firm in truth. The inspiration that comes from our heart is a pure expression of the divine. This creativity shows up in infinite forms. Many times when we are honoring our path there will be many who try to discourage and condemn the process. The Seven of Wands is a reminder to stay with the truth of our heart against all odds and to not waver because of silly opinions. No one has lived as you. You are the only one who can feel deeply the ways in which you wish to move and navigate freely as life. There are times for earth shattering convictions to stand for our naturalness and will not waver for anyone who tries to convince us otherwise. We must remember the ones who judge our path are the ones who maybe aren’t happy with their own. Freedom to be completely natural and do what one loves fully scares many. The freedom to carve a different path is ours to discover and explore. If one judgement or criticism scares us, what does that say about our true inner strength? The Seven of Wands says to deny those who oppose how your heart wishes to move.
How we feel in this very moment is everything. If we are pining for a better tomorrow or better future we will always be putting our life in the hands of an imagined state of joy. When we relax into the moment, not wait for another moment to relax into….we see there is an immediate content and joy here. When this relaxation in now is felt, we start living a miraculous life. What happens here is there is a naturalness in all movement. We stop thinking so hard about what we should do with our life and relax into present moment creativity. This springs forth the most raw and authentic unfolding which doesn’t need to be planned or strategically executed. The stream of life is already flowing. All we have to do is drop in and start swimming. When we are out of this stream of life we are heavy and constricted where no inspiration can flow. The Seven of Wands says burn bright and stay with this power that is felt inside. This light which burns will always guide us. This light is Grace. Grace moves all that is here. This is why we don’t have to worry or be frightened. We can be as we are.
Sometimes we need courage to swim in the stream of our own heart. This stream of our heart is the same as the life that we think is happening around us. It is simply reflecting our heart. We can be discouraged by others words and opinions. But we must remember no one absolutely no one is discouraging us. When we accept what others say about our life it is only our own thoughts, fears, and doubts about ourself that are coming into physical form. Life is showing us what we see and feel within. So if someone is against how we are living and this has a strong impact, it is because we are still holding judgement towards ourself. Other times our freedom threatens the box another judging us has been living in. They try to control us because they themselves feel conflicted. Courage is needed for the beginning leap of faith to do what feels intuitive and natural for us. However, once we see that the struggle, pain, and conflict is only a ghost we see how swimming in this stream becomes fun. As we expand into this trust resistance falls away as we swim.
