How symbols speak - Sword rising out of a flame, under rays of light
The sword arising out of the flames
symbolizes purification, and the rays of light signify splendour, intelligence
and enlightenment. This symbol has many parts, and there is an interplay
Think about how a period of adversity such as during a loss, or a change you did not want, can feel painful and frightening. It can also feel like it will never end. After the worst has passed, the feeling can evolve into an acceptance and a feeling of power or mastery over what has happened or what was. This is like a purification, a letting go of what was not necessarily serving your best interest. Even a significant loss has the potential to catalyse you into change and adaptation for the better.
This week’s symbol is about evolution out of circumstances that are negative, painful, adverse, into a space of understanding and functioning at higher level. Each new version of your life will demand a fresh version of you.
