Daily Draw- Ace of Swords (Poltergeist)

Ghosts & Spirits Tarot- Ace of Swords
Poltergeist!  What an interesting choice for the Ace of Swords.  Poltergeist are thought of as unseen spirit who cause objects to move about, sometimes in seeming violence.  Is this possible?  I am imagine it is, but some theories to explain poltergeist is that a living person, usually unknowingly, is causing the activity through psychokenesis, or telekenesis, Stephen King's "Carrie" style.  Sometimes we truly do not know the power of our own minds!

I traditionally think of the Ace of Swords as powerful mind shifts, and this image supports that.  I see it as cutting through the bs, and if in fact this person is causing the whirlwind around them by not being able to control their own mind, someone needs to call them on it and show them how they can stop the drama.

It is also a powerful reminder of how strong a tool our mind can be.  Our thoughts really do affect the physical reality of our lives, and it is so important to have a good handle on them, to not allow ourselves to become trapped in a cycle of negativity or feeling sorry for ourselves when the world is such an amazing place, full of beautiful things to see, touch, smell, hear, taste, and experience.

This card is from Ghosts & Spirits Tarot by Lisa Hunt, published by U.S. Games Systems, Inc.
