Three of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Three of Swords is bitter sweet. As painful of a time as it may be, it is an honest and transparent. All wondering, guessing, intuitive inquiring-but not quite understanding….All is crystal clear now. Painfully clear, but a great relief simultaneously. The card depicts three swords pointing downwards bound together by what looks like a mangled ribbon of blood dripping at the bottom. The background is blackened and grim behind the swords and the outer expanded energy is light. The light of truth has a way of revealing itself.


:.Words that arise are Intuition, Avoidance, Truth Emerging, Pain, Acceptance, Choice, and Healing.:

Within this raw and fresh discovery there is the inner knowing that one has already known all along, perhaps not the entirety of what has been revealed, but the feeling of something rumbling under the waters has been felt and unknown until now. This arises a deeper trust in what has been felt and a stronger and clearer connection with intuitive abilities. Strength of intuitive abilities can come and go, strengthening and weakening depending on our connection to our own being. As we go through experiences in life we are able to learn to trust ourselves and intuition can become more clear and refined. What has or is presently being revealed in ones current experience pushes the querent back into the heart of being ~ showing what was felt, is now confirmed. As hard of an experience this may be, immense strength and internal power will rise from what has been experienced.


When avoidance is present in subtle or gross levels this leaves room for untruths to remain within the experience. Three of Swords is a great reminder that when something is felt intuitively there are times when it is important to inquire and acknowledge what is arising within ones own being. If we ignore the messages our body and internal systems are signaling, we are denying aspects our being that are trying to communicate. As we allow these messages to fully come through, we honor our spirit and strengthen our internal guidance system. If we avoid what is arising we can sever our own energetic cords, which in their natural state has the ability to work with us in harmony. The invitation here is to listen deeply and not fall into avoidance of what is showing itself.


As the truth of what has been felt emerges into full understanding, whether it be from oneself, another, or environment it may almost feel like, oh…of course. Because all along there was the internal knowing before the truth was revealed. Although it is no surprise on one hand, there is still pain to be felt from the experience and to be held in loving space. As we feel the pain as it comes we are allowing it to be seen and acknowledged within the being so it can be felt, healed, and not be stored as trauma~only to be brought up again later. Now is the time to be with this pain in whatever way one goes into their being for healing. Each one of us process, feel, and heal in different ways. There are infinite ways for this and not a right or wrong way. Processing has nothing to do with avoidance and there are some cases where a masking of a problem can temporarily feel like healing, but it is simply stored and will arise again. Whatever allows you to be with the presence of your own being will be healing. Sitting in meditation is a very simple way to get in touch and tune inside. Meditation is not the only way as we are infinite in the ways which we move. Allow your being to naturally be drawn to what feels most organic.

Painful experiences give us the opportunity to push us in ways that break down old cycles and ways of being. In many ways stripping away illusions and leaving us raw with no where to cling or grasp onto in the physical world. The pain has the opportunity to draw us inside, to fill our own cup, and to strengthen our trust within our self before relying on any-thing or anyone. Teaching us to live from the inside out. Being, giving, trusting, loving, from our expansion. When what we cling to crumbles, we are left inside with the power of our natural being to move, navigate, love, create, and be in harmony with existence. We become more open and raw and we do not deny any aspect of ourselves but dive in fearlessly that which wishes to be seen, felt, and heard. Sometime we may dive in with fear, but either way excited to dive in or fearful to do so, one is not ignoring what is arising but open to what wishes to be seen. When that which arises is dark it is not to be avoided and shamed, but to be seen, explored, loved, and accepted. There is no precise guide or map. With the presence of our own being we encompass the energy of the moon and the sun which does hold the aspects of shadow and the light. Our being becomes more integrated instead of staying on one side or another. There is depth in ones being with the willingness to look. The feeling “I don’t want to go there” simply because it is a heavier aspect of being will be noticed as avoidance and a deeper trust emerges to go within. The humanness and divinity of our being are making friends.

Judgement, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The white bird spans his wings of light above the darkness. Below him, bats are coming towards his light from the depths of the black abyss. The bird has no judgement for the darkness, he only invites the darkness to come towards the light. This bird embraces all who come from the darkness and the light.

Somethings magical occurs when we surrender judgement of ourselves. As we surrender our harsh judgements towards ourselves, judgements towards others also vanish. This leaves a great space within the being. There is a lightness that cannot be matched by anything else. It is the lightness of spirit that is felt because there is no longer empowerment of judgement towards self or “others.” When the judgement card is pulled the invitation is to ask, “Am I being to hard on myself? Am I being too hard on others? How does this make me feel?” There are times when we think being critical or judgmental towards others is helpful, but sometimes this assists in disempowering our brothers and sisters.  The question that is invited is what is more true? Is it the darkness that you may see in someone else or the divinity of them that is the essence of their being? When we focus on the divinity in ourselves instead of criticizing the darkness, it is the divinity that is given space to expand instead of empowering all the problems. The more we tell someone that we believe in them, how much we love and trust them the more we see them bloom, expand, and embrace their beauty. Can we do this for ourselves and others? To allow divinity to dance instead of watching it wither away? Can we notice in ourselves when judgement arises? Are we putting ourselves and other beings down instead of lifting up? We can cultivate healthy judgement by focusing on the good in ourselves and in others. Not to ignore the dark aspects of creation, but to recognize the beauty that is here and see the darkness present is also assisting our expansion. To focus on getting “rid” of the darkness will empower it to rise. As we empower strengths in ourselves and others we will see how quickly a true confidence emerges. A confidence that is not “Oh look at me” but more like “Yes, I can be myself fully.”

As we investigate more deeply to see where our judgement comes from what can we find? This judgement is coming with a rejection of what is present. Trying to change or manipulate a situation instead of seeing the inherent lessons in all that is arising. If we see every problem that arises as an opportunity for growth and greater understanding, harsh judgement of self and others will drop away. Opportunity will be seen clear as day where once there was conflict and frustration. Before we go pointing the finger at someone, it’s a good idea to look in the mirror. Find out if what is being judged is actually about the other, or, is it about you? Many times we will find the conflict is coming from our own perspective and the irritation that is felt is a natural alarm system to check in with our way of seeing. We can ask is what I’m seeing truly a defect of another or are they simply mirroring a way that I am viewing myself? Everyone is free to be as they are. As we condemn others in their freedom, we condemn ourself.

The Judgement card can come when you are seeing clearly how your actions, words, thoughts, feelings, vibration, and all that you are is constantly determining and shifting the quality of your life. Perhaps at this time a veil has been lifted that you had no idea was present. You are seeing all of life in a very new and fresh way. This could be a time where self judgement has dissolved in a major way and you are seeing the inherent beauty in yourself and all of life. This can cause for your reality to change in very dramatic ways….and very quickly. The veil that has been lifted has put you in complete alignment with your purpose, your passions, your visions, and all is flowing in the most natural way. This happens as perception aligns with your heart and you fall into the arms of the unknown. All of this is happening through Grace. This is not something that one can force to happen. Life will unveil the mysteries as we trust and allow ourselves to be available. This is the majesty and the beauty of the divine unfolding. As we trust, life strips us naked of our false illusions and judgement. We begin to see with the eyes of pure spirit.
