The Justice Reversed
Being out of harmony leads to confusion and frustration. Life is just moving so fast that we’re not able to really find our foundations once again. If you’re life isn’t in balance, then now is time to make a stand.
When spiritual masters and yoga teachers tell us to stay in authenticity and be true to ourselves, this is what they’re refering to. The need to be stable with balance and clarity despite the challenges that might come. It’s through this that we can better manage our state.
The first step is to discover what the source of our imbalance is. Often this is where we aren’t being honest with ourselves. We choose to mask the reality of the situation instead of going deep and becoming a little uncomfortable with our floors.
It’s time to clean out the cobwebs and restore some genuine harmony. This new perspective can take us to a higher level of consciousness when we’re ready.
We typically use the Rider-Waite series of tarot cards for our psychic readings and thus, we’re doing the same for The Justice reversed. Yes, you can choose any deck that you desire as the meanings and depictions are very similar.
We see the figure on the throne showing elements of power. This isn’t aggression but instead a strong foundation leading to balance and security. The two pillars are remiscence of this need to build strong.
The sword symbolizes the need to ascend. This is why it’s pointed high, not directly. The figure isn’t there to fight, but given the strong foundations, the sword cannot sway.
We can also see the facial expressions as strong and deep. There is no joy expressed but there is certainly strength, resilience, character and confidence. From these foundations, happiness and abundance typically find their way into your life.
This begins with courage. The figure didn’t start here on the throne. This was an ardous journey which required recognition of the current circumstances and the desire for stability in life.
Balance = harmony
When things are feeling out of place, it’s human nature to want to find balance. We need to restore the harmony we used to have in our younger years. Often we neglect such needs for the desire towards fitting in and personal responsibilities towards our familes.
Unfortunately, it’s difficult to look after others unless we look after ourselves first. This pursuit of mild selfishness isn’t to be ignored. In fact – it’s necessary to our growth.
“As a woman, I see myself as a garden, and I see myself as the gardener of myself, I see myself forming and pruning and watering and nourishing all the flowers and trees and vines and leaves in me. There is a world within yourself, that has so much to offer! If only you would walk into it each day! We were not meant to save the world; we were meant to save ourselves! And in saving ourselves, we have saved worlds innumerable.”C. JoyBell C.
Once you learn this truth, you find yourself in wonder. You’ll discover how the very essence of pursuits to help others was fundamentally difficult without first serving yourself.
And to serve yourself, you’ll need to firstly find harmony and balance.
Breaking routines is often challenging but also necessary. It gives us a new perspective and more clarity to go forth in our lives. Essentially – we can go the extra mile without the baggage.
Sure – you might have responsibilities. You’re likely caring for others with limited time. If this is important to you, then you’ll find time. This starvation and negligence towards yourself needs to end.
Through restoring order in your life, you can positively shape the lives of more people and thus, your personal power is evidently real. This begins in rhthm and harmony today.
