FIVE OF SWORDS
Swords represent analytical thinking + technology. But ultimately, when the SWORD is PUREST, it transcends SCIENCE and represents SACRED TRUTH.
A Sacred Truth rises above LOGIC + REASON. A SACRED TRUTH is a DEEP KNOWING of every single molecule in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE. From the chemical composition of PLANETS, to the healing power of every HERB. We contain w/in our DNA this beautiful SACRED KNOWLEDGE. It’s available at all times. It’s our birth right. When we OPEN ourselves up + truly BELIEVE beyond the MUNDANE RATIONALISM of the EARTH REALM, we UNDERSTAND in the CORE OF OUR BEING that every single one of us is INTRICATELY WOVEN TOGETHER.
But we don't always function from this PURE state of KNOWING bc we are HUMANS, and that's totally okay + normal. So the SWORDS offer us a greater understanding of TRUTH + how it exists in our lives.
The 5 of SWORDS
When we are gifted a SACRED TRUTH, it’s our duty to do everything in our POWER not to hoard this knowledge. When you keep TRUTH from others, you not only ISOLATE yourself, you cause SUFFERING. Notice the man w/ fiery red hair smirking as he hoards 5 Swords from two others crying in DESPAIR.
We see this 5 of SWORDS energy in our PSYCHIATRIC INDUSTRY, a business that profits billions off DRUGS w/o offering a CURE to any “mental illness,” which by the way is a term created by those profiting off its usage.
It's time for us all to WAKE UP! Let go of the SWORDS you hold + SHARE. There’s NO SUCH THING AS LACK! There is MORE THAN ENOUGH for the ENTIRETY of EXISTENCE to hold KNOWLEDGE + POWER together. Notice there’s 3 figures in this card, but 5 SWORDS. There’s no need to use INFORMATION as a WEAPON. Every single one of us has the POWER to HEAL OURSELVES, EACH OTHER + WORLD.
Whether you are being DOMINATING by a RUTHLESS landlord, boss, or system not offering you EQUALITY, or if you are the one who may be KEEPING more than your FAIR SHARE, take a moment to imagine yourself completely LETTING your guard down. Inhale, “I already KNOW everything there is for me to know." Exhale, relax your face and shoulders, "I let go CONTROL and TRUST in the process of life."
When I checked in with my inner-mother, at first she wrapped me up in her arms, told me she loved me. But after a moment, she very forcefully pushed me away. She made it clear she was pissed at me for not checking in regularly. Then I was like "oh boy, now I gotta pull a card." Lol. 5 of Swords Reversed. ✨Miscommunication. Keeping thoughts from another. Hoarding information and ideas. Seeking more + more knowledge. Such a strong reminder that when I'm facing difficulties in my day to day, I often neglect the parts of myself so ready to nurture + cradle. My inner-mother reminds me: inhale, "You already know everything there is for you to know." Exhale, relax your face and shoulders, "let go control and trust in the process of life."
