Embellished Brain

Ananda Tarot ~ 8 of Swords

In the Thothy tradition this is Interference but I'm not catching that vibe here. Going to the companion book I'm finding octagons and baptismal fonts. Ehh? And, the mind can set us free or, because we work so hard at it, misdirect and disguise allowing us to misunderstand and deny.

I sent a bunch of gifts out this week and one came back as refused. Lip trembling, pretty sure as a Witness, she'd finally got around to shunning me. Figuring a sword to the heart was better than a misdirected mind I scanned it and emailed her asking what was up. She had no idea and was her usual best friend self.

How much of our bad times come from self-embellished mental interference? 


  1. The mind can make a heaven of hell or a hell of heaven. Glad you got things straightened out.

  2. Weird. Talk about someone who needs to be the center of attention. Refused your correspondence cause she knew it would illicit a additional contact from you. Energy vampire.

    1. Nah, not Elle. I think it was a goofy postal mixup. I wouldn't have the time of day for a vampire, I'd recognize them :) I used to collect them when I had the ego to think I could help.


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
