It's possible to wake up one morning and be tired of all the usual old excuses for putting what we are passionate about on hold. I know because that is exactly what happened to me this morning. As I lay in bed, I could hear my monkey mind start the same old monologue in my head. From somewhere else, somewhere deep within me, another voice told the monkey mind to shut the fuck up and then that same voice said three times: 'I rise up in my power.'
It felt good saying it three times but I don't think that's necessary. My soul must have just really relished the opportunity of finally being heard. I swung my legs over the edge of my bed and as soon as my feet hit the floor, I knew I had to go downstairs for a ritual.
The inspiration flowed for the following ritual (feel free to borrow/copy/adapt):
- Light a candle. Centre your energy and focus.
- Call back your power from all directions in time and space. (I raised my arms up to form the shape of Algiz as I did this.)
- Pull a Tarot card and rune to show you your power.
A Message from SpiritThere is a message about personal power for us all from Spirit that came with this Ace of Swords + Teiwaz combo and the message is as follows:
The energy of the Leo Full Moon has created a portal for transformation and stepping into the fullness of your power. You can free yourself from fear and doubt now. You can dig a bit deeper and find the courage to make your dreams comes true. This message is for anyone who resonates with these words and who see that the numerology of today's date carries significance for the amplification of this energy (11+2+2+2=8) VIII Strength.
The source of this message is Nature and the Divine Feminine. Your soul is feminine and tired of you only listening to your mind. Your soul speaks the language of the heart. Your soul is intuitive and eternal, powerful beyond measure. When you feed your soul, you feed your true power. Ask your soul how to best nurture it and it will tell you exactly what it needs. You have been starving it for far too long. Your attention has been scattered on things that don't matter or absorbed by paralysing fear.
Your soul carries the blueprint for what you are actually here to do. If you have been trying to fit in and do what seems logical, you have not even come close to doing the amazing and totally crazy (so the mind would have you believe) things that your soul knows you need to do to blossom here on Earth.
Yesterday's message was about crowning ourselves with our attention and today we see this crown as our true power in the Ace of Swords. From this place of allowing new thought in (hint: only the soul can do that - the monkey mind only regurgitates what we think we know), we can create anything. Anything. Teiwaz is the sword of Spirit and signifies the power of truth that becomes available to those who give their lives in service to Spirit - the spirit warriors of this world.
This message goes beyond the power of words. It nudges you to seek your own True North and begin communication with that place deep within you. There are treasures waiting to be brought forth and only you can do that. If you don't know where to begin, start by saying, 'I rise up in my power' and repeat these words as many times as it takes until you believe them!
