Message: The 4 of Swords encourages us to relax our minds and allow what is to come to proceed undisturbed in its own rhythm.
Symbols to look for:
✔️ The figures pose: A mental journey, peace, deep meditation
✔️ Dirty yellow colour: Sun with shadow, a state of consciousness that has a connection with the depths
✔️ Arrangement of the swords: Well-sorted-out thoughts and insights
✔️ The mosaic/puzzle: Working through experiences and putting them into perspective
✔️ The stained glass window: The contrasts between inner and outer issues
✔️ The word PAX: Latin for peace
What to think about:
🔮 I will take the time to focus my mental activity
🔮 I allow myself some peace and quiet
🔮 I am able to master major contradictions and clarify challenging incongruities
🔮 I will focus on the concept of PAX and bring peace into my life and my relationships
Summary: The 4 of Swords invites us to take time to be still and focus our minds. When we are still, focused and in balance, our experiences can be digested and thoughts pursued to their conclusions. When we are able to focus, the fragments of our life can be put together to form a coherent whole as in a stained glass window.
