Happy Thursday, everyone, and 777 (7/7/16)! Woo Hoo! That’s got to mean something.
Sevens in the tarot are about mastery and establishing a solid footing for the expansion and completion that lies ahead. It feels tied in to the idea of the holy trinity of inner child, self and higher self that are simultaneously reaching mastery to enhance and support alignment (and ascension). RAWR! (7+7+1+6 = 21, which breaks down into 3, confirming the presence of the trinity).
This ties in SO beautifully with the message I received today while out for a walk. It touches on the idea of avoidance vs alchemy. I LOVE this message.
What is the difference between avoidance and alchemy? Alchemy digests the truth; it incorporates the energy of diverse elements into a new form. In other words, it integrates the properties of the old parts and creates anew. It deconstructs, reframes and transforms, all in one.
Even though the old elements may not be recognisable in the new, they are still vital aspects of it. The new is not possible without them.
Avoidance denies the existence of something while trying to create new in the same state of energetic chaos from which the old was formed AND as if the old never existed. This means the integration of the old has been bypassed, making the foundation upon which you are trying to build the new, extremely shaky.
Alchemy is magic.
Avoidance is tragic.
