Imagine your mind as peaceful as a clear summer day. Your thoughts are clouds that sail through your mind and pass on. When you are ready, we can begin.

You are back in the now familiar castle of Wands. There is a winding staircase right in front of you. You hear the sounds of laughter and music coming from below. Your intuition whispers for you to go up the stairs. Take your time climbing the twelve steps.

You get to a door with a golden wand as a doorknob. You slowly open it to walk onto a lush, huge balcony.  The fragrance of spices swirls around you. The carpet is the color of the sun. There is a pair of golden sandals near the right of the door. You take off your shoes. You notice a man toward the end of the balcony looking out over the wide desert vista.  The man, without turning, beckons you to him.

You know this is the King of Wands. You walk to his right side. He turns to look at you. How does the King appear to you? Like someone you know?

“Look. Do you know what I see, my friend?”

What is it that the King sees? Do you see the same things? A city? Another castle? Is it a caravan of riders or something altogether different?

“I see what can be and what is. Vision is the key. When all else fails go back to that. Is it your guiding light to achieve what ever is your heart's desire. Nourish your vision and it will not fail you.”

What vision do you have in your head? What dream guides you in life?

“Well, I must leave. A king's work is never done. You are welcome to stay here as long as you like. Come see us again. Let me know how all goes.”

“Thank you, King of Wands.”

“No, the pleasure is mine.”

As the King leaves, you can see his aura radiant like the noonday sun. Even after he leaves, you still feel the power and passion of this King.

You can stay on the King's personal balcony or leave. The choice is yours. When you choose to leave, pick up your shoes at the entrance of the balcony to walk back to your reality.

How was your time with the King of Wands? Remember you can always come back and speak with him. Record all your experiences in your tarot journal.
