Three of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot


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.
