Freedom. Confronting our shadow side. Opportunity. Ease.
We don’t have complete control over our lives. We can’t control what other people do or say. We can’t control nature and the elements. But we can still achieve freedom—freedom from mental chatter, from anxiety, from insecurity, from shame and resentment. But achieving freedom takes effort. It involves becoming aware of our internal barriers, confronting, and then removing them.
The image on this card is reminiscent of Plato’s cave. The woman’s face is turned from the cavern entrance and toward the shadows projected by her torch. To set herself free, she’ll need to turn from the shadow of her own inner demons and misbeliefs.
What beliefs and assumptions are limiting your freedom? How can you bring more ease into your life?
