That notion of choices and breaking your own path is one that I see in the Dark Fairytale Two of Wands. The eponymous two wands stand to either side of him, their crystal tops glowing a bright blue, while in front of him floats a glowing globe, a miniature earth. Yet the angel - white of wing, dressed in a black waistcoat and trousers, with a tattoo and a goatee - sits on the outside edge of a balustrade, gazing upward. He has the wands and the earth, yet he looks elsewhere, following his own bliss, perhaps willing to take a leap into the unknown. For the moment, though, he sits there, enjoying the view, getting a feel for what he wants, allowing himself to be inspired.
Does she choose this path she's breaking, or does she just follow where the music leads her? Or maybe the act of her choosing the music determines the road she will follow. And how does she decide what to play? Inspiration seems to play a role, and maybe the music changes as the conditions around her change, responding to the environment. In that way, we return to the notion of getting a feel for where she is and allowing herself to be inspired, just as with the Dark Fairytale card...
After yesterday's wonderful skydiving experience, today I'm a little sore. Still, it was inspiring again, so much so that we've booked to go again in two weeks time! I'm having technical issues with posting the video, but will ask my stepdad for some help (he's a tech wizard), and hope to upload it soon. This time I managed to tick all 10 boxes on the first level flying certificate, flying on your belly, so next time the instructor said I could try flying on my back.
However, there are always choices to be made (and not just between belly and back flying). The message I get from these cards is to let inspiration guide me in my decisions today, responding to the circumstances, but keeping a sense of doing what is most joyful :)
I am grateful for inspiration in all its guises.
