23/02/18 - Strength (through adversity)

24 February 2018

The Eight of Swords is a reminder that sometimes your thoughts can leave you feeling trapped or restricted. It's possible to be so caught up in feelings of helplessness you fail to see the influence you can have over the situation. 

Whatever you're feeling like this about, know that you have the ability to free yourself and it needn't be as much of a struggle as you might think. How? Eights relate back to the Strength card - emotional mastery and self-control. The Dalai Lama is quoted as saying:
The way to overcome negative thoughts and destructive emotions is to develop opposing, positive emotions that are stronger and more powerful.
