Three of Swords

A heart is pierced with three swords, suspended in a rainy sky.

One of the greatest obstacles we encounter in creating the life we want for ourselves is disappointment. When we don’t receive what we desire or we experience less than optimal circumstances, we may believe we are incapable of creating the results we desire. We may feel we are deserving of disappointing outcomes, or that our circumstance is due to our flaws.

Yet manifestation often lies in the heart of the heartbreak. Initially we may need to endure a period of mourning, we may have to push through our grief, we have to endure through the anger from what seems to be life’s backlash. Yet it is deep within this thorny scenario that our opportunity lies.

In every episode of pain is a great opportunity. The experience we are enduring is the pain of growth, of a trial by fire, of the rending away of an old way of life that is no longer functioning for us. The anger and grief of unwanted circumstances are unavoidable, but when we resent the pain itself we can become bound by it. When we embrace the thorns and allow them to pierce into our own flesh, when we acknowledge the necessity of the intense discomfort through the transition, we can see the true value of the gift of personal growth. We recognize the experience not as a punishment, but as a birth into a greater life with a greater wealth of opportunity.
