I asked the Symbolon cards to reveal a different perspective regarding mom’s death. The question I had in mind was this. What is it I am to learn from my mother’s death? There are obvious answers to this question but sometimes the cards, especially the Symbolon deck, shed a very profound message. This self-reading is part of my healing process.
The image below is the 3 card layout used in the LWB. The Symbolon deck is illustrated in this post for it’s creative beauty and to demonstrate how the cards answer questions which often cannot be answered by the Tarot or other oracle cards.
Position 1: The Problem
MATTER AND SPIRIT – Puzzling description in the LWB as this card can represent a new age business.
Quote: “…the spiritual property which you carry does not really belong to you. It has not yet begun the journey through the soul.”
I’ll have to meditate on this message a little further. Perhaps there is a clue to a direction I will take in the future which I cannot comprehend at this time.
Position 2: Way Through the Problem
THE MAGICIAN – A lot of time invested in conception and it is time for a sacrifice which will release the blocked energy within me. Positive thinking. Black and white magic.
In relation to the problem card I get the feeling I am suppose to carry through with some ideas I’ve had which have been put on a shelf temporarily. Is my mother’s death a trigger to moving ahead with these ideas?
Position 3: The Outcome
CARING – some keywords for this card are sympathy, grief and caring. I can relate to the ‘helper syndrome’ phrase because in my spiritual work this is what I do – help others.
Quote: ” …mother/child relationship has been restored within you.”
