Breathe normally until your mind feels relaxed. Close your eyes and let us begin.

The daystar shines brightly in the blue sky. You are dressed in an all-white tunic and pants.  You are somewhere in the soft brown sands of a desert.  How do you feel? What smells are around you? Do you feel the heat or feel comfortable in this place?

A horse is galloping behind you.  You look out on the horizon and see shimmering in front of you a kingdom rising out of the sands. Is it real or imagined? Is this the same place you glimpsed with your journey with the ten of swords?

Tantalized by the image, you come out of your reverie feeling someone breathing down your neck. You turn to see the deep eyes of a sable colored horse looking down at you.  The rider is a child on the horse's back. Is it girl or boy? What age is the child? She/He is dressed in an outfit similar to you with a beautiful golden wand in her/his hand.

“Wands land is beautiful, is it not?”

“Is this where I am?”

“Yes, of course.  I think you need this more than me.”

The Page of Wands gives you the wand.

“I must ride on. See you at court?”

“So that castle is real?”

The page laughs. “Only your desire makes it and all of this real. I must fly.” The Page rides off into the distance. What does the Page mean by that? As you hold the wand in your hand, how do you feel? What does it whisper to you?

Out of the sands rises a two-way sign. One reads this way to the unknown and another reads this to the comfort zone. For a minute you hear the laughter of the Page of Wands. Is this a challenge or a statement for you? Which way will you go? Go with your first instinct. When you do, touch the sign you wish to travel to. Then begin to focus on your breath again and return back to your reality.

Stay in the flow for a moment. Then when you're ready, write about your meeting with the Page of Wands.
