Let the worries and cares of your mind flow like water off your body. When you are ready, close your eyes.


You are at the top of the mountain in front of the castle door of The House of Swords. You see two impressions of small swords on the doorknob. You take off your necklace and put the two swords charm into the lock. The door opens with a grand music coming from the air. What kind of music greets you? Classical, pop, ballad, dance?


As you walk down the quiet hall, what do you see? Finally you come to the end of the hallway to another silver door. Above it shows two swords crossed that read beneath them, “All who seek knowledge are welcome here.”


You reach for the door but it opens. You walk into a large ornate room with windows from floor to ceiling showing the blue of the sky and the clouds. The room is painted the color of pale moonlight with a hint of lavender in the air.  There on a silver throne with words like: dream, think, clarity, truth etched into the back sits a woman.  She is dressed in a sparkling deep blue dress down to her knees. On her head lies a silver crown with a butterfly diamond in the middle of it.


How does she appear to you? Does she look familiar to you?


“Come my friend, I have been waiting for you!’ she says looking serene and serious at the same time, her voice strong and clear resonating in the room.


You walk to her and she motions for you to sit on the big fluffy sliver pillows around her feet. You sit down. She smiles at you. How do you feel now so close with The Queen of Swords?


“My lady, I’ve come so far. I can’t believe I’m here.”


“Belief is what got you here. That is half the journey”.


“What is the other half?” you ask.


She laughs with a deep rich sound. “Persistence. Now, tell me of yourself and what you like to know?”


The Queen of Swords and you begin to talk. She can counsel and listen to you with her wit and keen insight.


Soon the time passes and you get up from the pillows. The Queen rises and looks at you deeply in the eyes for a moment. She then gives you a soft kiss on the cheek. She walks you to the door of her special room.


“Remember, don’t be a stranger. Come again” she says.


“Goodbye, My lady.”


Once you walk out the door, walk and count to ten to return back to your reality.  Take a few moments to reorient yourself back then reflect on your visit with The Queen of Swords.
