The more you do, the more you draw in the energy needed to expand your greater vision
The Star asks, "What offers me the most healing?" 7 of Swords
We see here a dude who's leaving behind what seems to be a circus. He's taking with him five swords and leaving behind two. Swords in the tarot represent intellect or learning. This image often is seen as being "sneaky" or "stealthy," but perhaps (especially in regards to the question) it's a symbolic gesture of taking with him thoughts that support him and grounding those that don't.
No matter what learning environment you find yourself in, there will be lots of discussion, debate, and question (like a circus) on what is the Truth. But what's truly EMPOWERING and HEALING is to leave behind the group setting and dive into your own individual practice. This way you can really check in and see what is aligned with your highest interest. When you take time to nurture your own individual view point, this will bring JOY back in to your practice (notice how happy he looks to be getting away from the madness of the circus). This is a good reminder for my yoga practice. I tend to just practice at the studio. I can fall into a mindless routine of following the teacher's sequences. But by developing a personal practice, I know it allows me to trust my intuition. I am able to tune in and listen to my own needs. It also gives me space from the social aspects of a group class (leaving behind the circus). This card is also a great reminder of the importance of leaving behind the circus of NYC to reevaluate my thoughts, which I'm doing right now back in my old home, Wilmington, NC.
