THE DEVIL GOT YOU BY THE TOE?

               Devil got your tongue?
Chained to the Devil?
Stuck in time? Stuck to responsibilities? 
Can't move along to a happier place in life?


What a little devil you are.
  The devil made me do it.
 I"m going beat the devil out of you.
What else has devil done to you?

 In the tarot's twenty-two major arcana cards (the pathway to enlightenment.) The Devil (Ryder/Waite deck) symbolizes Pan, the Greek god who generates chaos.

The Devil's message is a reminder of how our thinking can create a feeling of being stuck to a person, place or thing thus we create a behavior and beliefs that keeps us from living peacefully.

When our thoughts become chaotic, our fears and doubts become bigger than a solution, when our mind is muddled and we lose clarity we feel powerless and there are no choices. We become immobilized by our fears and doubts and become apathetic, angry, crazy! And in our state the victim of circumstances. 

If you notice the chains around the man and woman are not tight. They can take them off. The man (the mind) is fueled by the fire of greed, lust, gluttony or any of the seven deadly sins.

 and thus becomes chained to the material world (the cube.) The woman (passion) feeds  off his desires, creating deceptive fruits (addictions). They are stuck to earthly needs. Their spiritual self is dismissed for cardinal rewards.

There's a bit of the devil in each of us; could be a big piece, and at certain times, with specific people and/or situations, a strong part of us. It could be a small thing - like a moment of wanting beyond reason which brings  disappointment, confusion and panic––a once in a while experience when we need to leap with faith and break free from the chain keeping us back.

The Devil is a reminder to us to examine what is holding us back from being fulfilled, keeping hope, and feeling positive. 

What hold you back from a dream come true?  What are you stuck to, chained to or afraid of that keeps you from realizing a more fulfilling and positive life?

As a life coach my clients and I examine what chains are holding them back from achievement.

There is an answer, another path, and a move forward when you are willing to remove the chains and find balance. The opposite card of The Devil is The Lovers.
