How can we radically love and accept ourselves when we live with an inherent belief that we are not enough? Today on the podcast, we look to Seven of Swords as a powerful anchor for this kind of deep unraveling, exploring it as a continuation of our journey with The Lovers, our card for the month of October.
Note: This episode is a re-release of an episode I recorded in 2020, with a fresh intro. The original verbiage for the episode is below:
All Sevens in the Tarot represent a call to engage with inner work that often feels like it needs to be resolved externally, with an external action. With Seven of Swords, we are called to explore the ways in which we get caught up in the myths of not enoughness that our mind often presents to us: the fear that we are not okay, that there's something wrong with us, or that at our core, we are fundamentally not good enough.
Are we willing to courageously tend to the deep internal wounds that lay underneath those thoughts? Are we willing to come back home to ourselves, lay a hand on our heart, and just be with ourselves when things feel tender, or uncomfortable?
In today's episode of the podcast, we will explore Seven of Swords as a huge and beautiful Anchor for these kinds of experiences, and concrete ways to begin to work with the energy of this card, and with ourselves, in these moments.
