Ace of Swords - New World View

A new world view that the Ace of Swords represents, is a burst of raw creative energy like all Aces symbolize. This  new perception can create conflict as it threatens the old order. This is the double edge of the Ace of Swords. Regardless, the message is, the awakening of mental powers, means a change in one's life, in spite of ensuing struggle.

I believe this struggle is not always coming from others, and it may be arising out of our own protests, because as the old adages says, "old habits die hard." Most of us don't like change, but we can learn to let go, go with the flow, and even invite change into our lives. We all have a story, and we can change our own story and that, can change the world.

Change is always daunting because of the possible uncertainties ahead. The 'what ifs,' the why, when and what, can get to us. This is all more reason to love and live in the present moment. It's a useless endeavour, projecting into the future or regretting the past, as it robs us of our happiness.

To practice and to have mindfulness is a great new world view.

That sword she's holding looks might big and unwieldy for her. Makes me think of the phrase: "Some of us have tried to hold on to our old ideas and the result was nil until we let go absolutely." As you said Catherine, old habits die hard! :)
