Influence – Inner Strength – Mastery
Once Upon A Time
There was a young priestess that traveled through life with a ferocious lion by her side. The priestess would gently pet the lion’s head as if he were a small cat. And the lion would purr with pure pleasure. He adored the priestess, looking at her with blissful eyes and utter adoration. But, how did she tame the wild beast?
With grace and love alone! No violent training methods were used. The priestess was a total master of her raw emotions. She would simply observe her fiery anger, ecstatic happiness and deep grieve, as if a spectator at a show. And with her inner power, she would channel her emotions towards a loving aim — to live in harmony with the beast. And so, the priestess created a safe relationship with her lion companion.
You may have impressive biceps or abs, or you may not… But you do have an inner strength and stamina that can overcome any obstacle. Your inner power is invisible to the naked eye, so people may underestimate your force. You prove them wrong, as you quietly move the chess pieces with persuasion and influence alone. By the end of the game, you’ve won and the other players can’t fathom what just happened. Did they enter a time warp?
It was your Higher Self, the part of you that is bursting with divine knowledge, love and compassion. You do not need physical force to accomplish your aims. You’re a master of your raw emotions, thoughts and relationships. Furthermore, you’re a great visionary, with the capacity to see twenty steps ahead of the pack.
The Strength card in Tarot teaches you to stay calm and composed as you evaluate the situation from a place of love and compassion. Your bright inner light will surely lead to great abundance and power.
