Four of Swords

Message to the World
January 2nd, 2020


Today, tend the Third Chakra.

The Third Chakra, located at our Solar Plexus, is represented by the color yellow. It is the primary source of personal power, the’ self-power chakra”. This chakra transforms energy from our surroundings and converts it into the energy that we use to fuel our self-confidence, self-discipline, and the ability to manifest goals.

The Suit of Swords is the suit of air, representing communication, spirit, intellect, and prejudice. The Four of Swords depicts a figure lying on a sarcophagus. This physical dormancy symbolizes the shutting off of all physical distractions and needs so that they can focus entirely on spirit and communication. When your body is dead, your spirit soars. The hands of the figure rest over their Third Chakra, the solar plexus chakra. Three, completely stationary swords hang suspended above them. With completely still thoughts and dormant body, they submerge themselves into deep meditation, turning undivided attention towards fueling their inner power.

The window above them shows a child, kneeling in front of a mother figure, receiving love and acceptance.

Our message today is to take the time to look beyond our physical hunger, passions, energy, and wants. Quiet all outward sensory input, close our eyes, and reflect on what we believe about the world around us, and ourselves, and, most importantly, what our soul’s calling is. Define our goals today, and channel energy from the very air around us to reinforce the underlying structure of those goals. Receive energetic fuel into our Third Chakra to bolster our self-confidence and our self-discipline.

If, when looking inside ourselves, we find our inner child to be scared and malnourished, pour some of this energy into that child as well.

When we look with clarity and without distraction upon the path to our Highest good, when we recognize our soul’s journey, the energy to fuel our quest becomes abundant. It pours into us and buoys us. All we need to do is become receptive.
