Eight of Blades

The journey begins in fear and darkness, helpless and bound.

Initiation is a release and a bond.  You bind yourself to the process knowing only the first piece. Not knowing what will follow — the pain, the blindfold slowly peeled away to light that may blind or reveal things you wish you could unsee. Truth begins to form but it can feel like chains weighing you down.

But at the end, the bonds loose and you emerge from the cocoon changed and renewed.

It’s a trap willingly entered, a restraint tied on oneself.

In the process it feels like you will never be free.

In the end, you will be transformed.
