We are looking at a very beautiful, and powerful card. The card that holds all possibilities. If this card appears in your spread, go and be merry, something magical and wonderful is going to happen: a new beginning.
I also like to call this card: Fingerprint of Great Spirit! You are looking at the beginning of all beginnings. The very moment when all life sprung into being. This the glorious moment of birth. As we look at the card, our imagination is guided though all spectrum of light. And all the millions of patterns that make up the Universe are merging together, transforming each other, dancing a never-ending dance. You are looking at a glimpse of a continuously outgoing, self-expanding, evolving Universe.
The central focus of this card is the palm of a hand. Could this be your hand? Is this the Creator’s hand? Or maybe a new little hand coming into this world? Or maybe an idea?
I invite you to look closer to this hand, and let your awareness sink within. You will soon realize you are witnessing the existence of all the stars, all the galaxies, and all the possibilities of existence. This special place is called the Akasha field. The term “akasha” is a Sanskrit expression that means “sky” or “aether”. This mystical substance is everywhere and within it is recorded every action, emotion, thought, feeling and experience of every living being. It is like a huge database that contains a record of everything. It permeates everything. Mystics have long suggested that this information can be accessed in specific states of consciousness.
Now let’s trace our journey back from inside the hand, and imagine using a bird’s eye view over this Creative card. Try to soften your focus a little, and distance yourself a bit. You will start to notice that you are looking straight into the cosmic eye. Notice the dark pupil and the shades of brown, followed by the white light. This white light is the most pure form of energy that is said to exist in the Universe.
In numerology, number 1 carries the vibrations of new beginnings, creation, uniqueness, motivation, positive, masculinity. It also resonates with self, independence, originality, creativity, love and intuition, force, unity, divine presence, success, ambition, and will power. This number encourage us to step into our own power, reminding us that we create our own reality, with our thoughts, beliefs, and our actions. You have clear self-identity and values, you are a seeker of new paths, and take on duties with confidence. We also have the flip of the coin traits associated with number one: dominance, arrogance, single-mindedness, lacking emotion, intolerance and stubbornness.
