The Page of Cups Reversed represents our need to be creative and enjoy a child-like state. From this place of wonder and amazement towards the world, our best work can arise.
The Page of Cups reversed
In our adult years, we tend to put down the pencils and paintbrushes in leiu of fitting in. We also create an internal dialogue that we’re simply not good enough to be an artist.
The truth is – we were all born as artists. Yes! That’s what this tarot card is representing. It doesn’t matter how old we are – it only matters that we’re allowing ourself to let the hair down and play.
Our worlds demand more color. There are just too many medicre individuals who have lost this sense of joy and ambition towards creativity. You can see it all around you – so many striving to simply fit in with the herd, when they were born to stand out.
We’ve used the Rider-Waite tarot deck for our psychic reading of The Page of Cups reversed. Some people question if this means you have to use the same deck, and the answer is no. Any deck is fine as representations are very similar.
We see this Page as the unique individual who finds joy, passion and creativity everyday. It doesn’t matter his age or workload since he always finds the time. Have a good look at what he’s wearing! He’s standing out with blue and pink unlike the rest.
Inside the cup is a fish. Only a child would take their fish along for an outing, but this man still holds true to his childhood roots. He wants to play in the wild. In the open. Where everyone can see his true essence, and heck – he’s having a great time!
Unleashing your inner child
It doesn’t matter how much we’ve masked it – we all have an inner child. We all want to play. This is why as adults, we find hobbies that are fun and exciting. Some people play soccer, others draw, some practice kirtan music while others choose to write. These are all what children do.
Our inner child is begging to be released. It’s deep inside and needs to come to the surface for attention, laughter and play. Trust that this process is unfolding and requires your divine belief that this represents your awakening.
For many, their inner critic prevents this awakening. It whispers “What will others think of me?” and so such ambitions are closed off. Those artistic and creative pursuits simply fall to the side in leiu for a normal life. That vibrancy and color they experienced as a child simply vanish away.
Yes – we all want to grow up, but some of us want to return. It’s not us – it’s our soul. This awakening process return us to our source energy that brings warmth, love, beauty and radiance to our everyday lives.
A creative flow
Our creative essence begins to flow once we’re partnered with strong emotions. Such emotions allow us to connect with our creativity abilities so we can finally begin to embark on this flow-state.
From here, we can embrace more fun and joy in our lives. Laughter, connection and peace all generally follow. Essentially – you’ll feel that spark that has been dimished for so long.
Such a creative flow state takes time to build momentum. Start slow and keep stacking, but more importantly – start today. Pick up a paintbrush, attend that laughter yoga class and unleash that inner child.
The famous martial arts practitioner Bruce Lee reminds us to be like water. Such a creative essence needs to flow naturally. It shouldn’t be forced and its depth has no limit.
Accept where you are starting from today. From here, listen to your heart and what it truly desires. You’ll soon discover that it’s been calling for this new state for all these lean years.
