You have got to get out of your own way!
When the 8 of swords card shows up in a reading, it means that you could potentially be blocking your blessings.
You are being reminded of the power of your mind -- it can be used to create your beautiful reality or a world full of fear and anxiety.
The choice is yours!
When you look at the traditional 8 of Swords card, it shows a woman that is blindfolded, chained, and surrounded by a cage of swords.
Since the Swords suit represents the mind in tarot, this shows that your mind is turning into a prison of sorts.
If you study the 8 of Swords card closely, you can see that her handcuffs are simply loosely bound chains that can easily be slipped off if she didn’t believe that she was really stuck.
The Universe is giving you a clear message that you are the only one who can free yourself.
Once you decide to finally let those chains rest at your feet, you can take your own blindfold off and see the complete picture.
You’ll in fact find that there are ample opportunities for you to slip through the spaces between thet swords that once stood as a cage.
Instead of looking to anyone else to help or relying on a victim mentality, the Universe is calling you to be your own savior here by releasing anxious thought patterns.
It’s time to move on with a better and brighter future!
Everything that you’ve been waiting for is literally right around the corner…
The message of the 8 of Swords card is typically easier said than done, but you’re strong enough to move past this doubtful period in your life.
The best advice that I can give you right now is to think of all of the positive possibilities that lie within the unknown rather than your past negative experiences.
If you continue to harbor on those past circumstances, you’ll create the same reality for yourself over and over again.
The Universe is inviting you to explore a new way of life -- one that takes a bit of courage and risk taking to conquer, but that also has beautiful, abundant rewards!
“I can reflect on my past experiences without experiencing them again in my current reality. I learn from my past experiences so that I can create a better future. I appreciate lessons from my past because it has prepared me for the abundance, blessings, and prosperity that I receive now.”
