Day 12 of the December Tarot Challenge by @wildsoulhealing #thesacredwheel - What in my life am I ready to shed? THREE OF SWORDS : Grief, rejection, painful separation. The heart symbolizes emotion and beauty, and it’s being stabbed three times in this card. Pain is necessary in life. It can motivate us to power through and overcome obstacles. It gives us a place to start, so we may heal and come out of the other side stronger once we let it go. In regards to today’s question, it’s time to shed the pain so we can start fresh. We can heal. What pain are you holding on to? Sometimes the thought of letting go of the pain is scarier than holding onto it. We know who we are and what we are getting with it. Or we are afraid to make a mistake. Shed the wrong piece. Once shed, what will we look like? How exposed will we be? How hard will it be to actually rebuild? These are great questions, but they shouldn’t be feared. They should be answered. Shed those layers of pain. It will be difficult at first. If you’ve been holding onto it for a long time it can become calcified. Imagine a chisel and a bulbous slab of marble. Start chipping away until you are left with a beautiful representation of who you truly are. Be your own personal Michelangelo.
