The Six of Wands suggests a way to live a happier life

April 21, 2017

There are many ways to use Tarot cards beyond the well-known process of doing a traditional reading. Here’s a way to create a happier life today using a bit of advice from the Six of Wands.

“We are all just walking
each other home.”
— Ram Dass

Six of Wands -- Tarot of the MastersMany modern versions of the this card depict a triumphal procession in which a man is riding a horse while surrounded by those who have supported his efforts or perhaps by those who are celebrating his success, depending on your perspective.  This scene is typically thought of in terms of a victory in the outside world, but it also can be about an inner, spiritual journey.  (To see my take on the above Ram Dass quote, read my Spiritual Tarot blog post about this card from a few years ago.)

With this in mind, I wrote the following about the Six of Wands in my book, The Soul’s Journey:

When we recognize the divine spark within others, we are actually remembering that it is within ourselves as well, which helps manifest the “Supernal Light” within all of us.  Every time we do that—even if only for just a moment—we are taking a (collective) step toward reunification with the Divine. To enlighten both our own lives and the world we live in, we can repeatedly remind ourselves that we and everyone else are spiritual beings and that the Divine dwells in us all.

The following happiness suggestion is based on that final statement: “we can repeatedly remind ourselves that we and everyone else are spiritual beings and that the Divine dwells in us all.”

Today, when you are out in the world—at work, at a restaurant with friends, shopping at the grocery store—take a moment whenever you look at someone to imagine a halo of light around them.  Use this imagery as a symbol to remind yourself that everyone is a spiritual being and that the Divine dwells in all of us.

Note that you can adjust the imagery to be whatever works best for you.  Would you rather imagine a golden light radiating from the person’s heart? Okay. How about a shining star in the center of their forehead?  Whatever you want to use is fine.

Many of these suggestions from the cards about how to live a happier, more fulfilled life were inspired by my pithy Tarot meanings and others by material in my book, The Soul’s Journey.
