Wildwood COTD : Five of Bows

Today the Five of Bows comes out to join us and I apologise now for this being a very quick and short post. His keyword is empowerment.

Card of the Day
Five of Bows ~ Empowerment
Card of the Day

The Giant of Abbas to me is that empowerment. He’s huge, equipped and willing to use the tools he has in his hands. So today, I plan on copying that empowerment. And like this Giant, who also represents facing and defeating our fears and mastering skills along the way.

I saw a brilliant quote on Mark Ryan’s Facebook wall today from fellow actor, Ray Winstone.
“We’ve been lucky? You make your own luck. There are plenty of barriers out there but we just didn’t realize that. So for us they didn’t exist. We went straight through ’em!”
Ray Winstone”

And that is pretty much how I see this card: You cannot be stopped if you don’t know the barriers are there and if you do (and you frankly, do not give a damn) you can go right through them.

So today, have fun, be empowered but remember: Mother nature is by far, more powerful than we could ever imagine ourselves to be!

    First of all I want to say excellent blog!

    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before
    writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in
    getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!

      Hi Florencia 🙂

      When I’m doing my Card of the Day, I find something about the card to start me off with, like say, with the Five of Bows, I started off with the Giant, because that’s the most prominent image in the card. But usually, I just start and let the thoughts flow: I don’t try and make it perfect, I type usually how I read the cards. I correct the spelling and check any hints the grammar checker has, then put it out there.

      Hope that helps you!!
