There is a person standing still in a thunderstorm with tears streaming down his/her face. There are other people running frantically for cover but this person is numb to the raindrops and chaos. This is the dramatic visual for the Three of Swords Tarot card. A ‘heartbreak’ card for me when I started learning about Tarot cards.
Over the years I have realised that yes this card is about pain but, pain that brings relief. It is like getting an injection. When the nurse prepares the injection, you cry, pray, or shout in anticipation of pain. The injection is painful till the time the needle pierces your skin and then, the pain vanishes.
The injection starts the cure and you feel relieved.
Today, I look at this card as an essential way of emotional healing. You will heal only after experiencing the pain and expressing yourself.
So, the question is:
What do you need to do to heal emotionally?
