Close your eyes, breathe in peace and breathe out peace. When you are ready, let us begin by opening the doors of your mind.

You're outside on a winding country road high in the mountains, you come to a fork in the road. Unsure of where to go, you feel the hum of the sword necklace that Page gave you. It points toward the right path. You look up at the sky and the clouds are so blue. You feel a sense of ... what? Peace? Adventure? Excitement? Happiness?


You hear the sounds of hoof beats. It comes up like a roar. A flash of a cool wind comes out of nowhere. It seems a magnificent silver horse appears with a rider dressed in an ice-blue cloak. A long sword hangs on the rider's silver belt. The person turns to you with an outstretched hand. How does the Knight appear to you? Is it a man or woman? Could it even you another version of you or a figure from the past?

You take the hand and the Knight pulls you up on the horse.

"Where to?"

"Who are you?"

"Quicksilver is my name," the Knight says. "Knight of The House of Swords. That is where you're headed right? I see the necklace Page gave you. It's much faster with me. Hold on"

Before you can say anything, you and Quicksilver are off. It's as if you are now the wind itself. As you hold on tight, images come out of the blue with no time to think. The images and sounds fill your mind. What are you shown? Finally the world stops. You feel a bit woozy or exhilarated.

"There she is" says Quicksilver.

The Knight of swords helps you off the horse and points to a tall almost silvery blue castle about a half a mile down the road. You stare at it in awe.

"You will need this to help you gain entrance." It is another sword charm that he places next to the one you already have.

"Thank you."

"If you ever need a ride or safe passage, just call for me. I will come." Quicksilver winks then speeds of like the wind. You stand in the middle of the road. Your ride with The Knight of Swords has left you clear and sharp.

When you are ready, return back to your reality by slowly opening your eyes. Record your experiences with The Knight of Swords.
