Healing Begins

Daily Draw: Tarot of Druids ~ Ace of Wands

The Elder holds up a fresh branch of mistletoe signifying the time of healing has arrived.
I've been thinking about this for the last hour, reviewing the different ways we can be injured and injure ourselves - physically, mentally, emotionally. And the different ways in which healing can take place.

I'm reminded by this card for healing of any kind to occur, the injured must be willing. To ignore the doctor, to dwell on insults and slights, to nurture dark thoughts only increases the hurt and why would we do that to ourselves? Yet many times, there we are, moaning about our lot in life, tolerating being less than we deserve, when the answer and magic lies within our own power. Reject the negative, embrace the positive, choose a new path.

"When I stand before thee at the day's end, thou shalt see my scars and know that I had my wounds and also my healing." ~ Rabindranath Tagore 1861-1941
