Consider what it is that is keeping trapped in the Tower right now. Don’t allow it to take root. Purify.
Identify and analyze the Tower when you find yourself in one. The Tower does not need to come crashing down if you identify it in time. Notice that you are in a tower and cease building it immediately. Not one more brick should be added. The sooner you can identify the tower, the sooner and quicker you can vacate it. If you know it is a tower, if you it’s going to come crashing down with you inside, why are you still in it? Get out! Getting out will take a surrender of your ego. To hold on to your ego while being in the tower means you are making excuses for the fact that you are in the tower. These excuses become denial. Every ounce of denial equals twenty pounds of brick that you are piling up on the tower. Remember, these bricks are going to to crash down on top of you and bury you beneath them. But to admit that it is a tower you are in without looking for blame and fault means you can gently and quietly exit before there is a disaster.
Take responsibility before pointing your finger and blaming somebody.
On the subject of soul fragmentation, it is possible in a Tower incident that a portion of your soul may become buried beneath the rubble. With that thought in mind, it is a good idea not to leave the scene of a fallen tower until all the debris has been sifted through to make sure you walk away whole. Leave no portion of your soul behind. To do so will only cause difficulties for yourself later on. Be good to yourself this way. Be whole.
When making a decision, a choice between two very different options, weigh your options, listen to your gut, your inner voices, your internal guidance system, and when you make your decision, trust that you made the right decision. If you second guess yourself, all you will end up doing is making yourself crazy, probably building a tower based on your own doubt. Yes- self doubt can be bricks in the Tower. Be mindful of this. Listen to your inner guidance system and trust it. Trust that it is leading you in direction you were always meant to go. In the silence of your inner landscape, your intuition knows the truth of you and will tell you what you need to know. Trust.
Often, feeling the need for external validation, people will rush into things. This validation is often superficial and short lived, effectively becoming just another brick in the Tarot Tower.
Tower/Devil card together when the Tower crumbles and fragments of your soul become buried beneath it, some of these fragments become shadows. As they are buried beneath the rubble, they become lost or denied, buried from view and therefore are forgotten. When you deal with your Tower rubble, finding missing pieces of yourself, they need to be reintegrated which is what the Devil card is telling you.
The incompleteness of one’s soul, the fragmentation of the soul leads to addictions. When a piece is lost, we seek to fill that void, to give ourselves a sense of wholeness, however false that wholeness may be.
With Deeksha, you simply see past the bullshit that so many people are confined by. People live in constant states of limited beliefs and projection of all these things onto others. With Deeksha, however, you see past that. These people with their limiting beliefs that they are projecting onto you, they don’t realize that you are beyond all that stuff, that you are not bound by it as they are. They are apt to have misunderstandings about you, or simply not see you at all. Keep in mind, we are each on a vibrational frequency. Deeksha raises your vibrational frequency significantly. Those on the lower vibrational frequency are apt to not even be aware that a frequency as high as yours does, or could, even possibly exist. They are likely to not even acknowledge you at all, or if they do, they do so with the projection of all that worries them. Your job, of course, as a holder of the Deeksha is to appreciate the divinity in this person no matter what and appreciate how this person fits into the oneness of it all. Deeksha burns away all the bullshit that still infests their lives. Deeksha burns it all away. Deeksha purifies until all you see is what is actually important. Deeksha will help clarify goals by the process of elimination. When all the crap and all the cobwebs have been burned away, what remains is what is of value, what is important. In tarot, Deeksha is the Tower, in its purifying aspect. The Tower of Deeksha. It takes Deeksha to understand Deeksha. May the critical mass be reached soon.
A Deeksha giver will see past the bullshit of another’s limiting belief about themselves and see their greatest potential. This can be frustrating trying to get through to these people, trying to make them see the potential you see in them.
When criticizing and/or finding fault with another, consider what piece of yourself they are reflecting back to you to make you feel this way about them.
Sometimes the decision to follow the Fool’s Path to Enlightenment can trigger a Tower situation the paradigm shifts. Accept it for what it is and know that when the dust settles, your Star will shine as it was always meant to.
The Universe will at first whisper to you. If you do not hear, it will speak louder. It will then scream, if it comes to that. If you still do not hear, it will smack you hard. This is The Tower in tarot- the Universe screaming at you to make its self heard. The Universe will not waste its time on the trivial and the trifling. If The Universe is speaking, whispering, trust that it has something to say.
The heart can not build Towers, only the ego can.
The Sun, The Moon, and the Star are all in the Heavens. The ego will build Towers trying to reach them, not realizing that the heart is already there. The ego will not take you to the Sun, the Moon, or the Star. These things represent your bliss. Your heart is your guidance system to your bliss. Your ego doesn’t know. Your ego can not imagine. Only your heart can know this and only your heart can take you there.
Explore what makes you feel certain ways when you are feeling them. Don’t shy away because of feeling old pains. Be fearless in exploring these shadows. It is in these shadows where you will find what is left that you are looking for. Look behind objects. These fragments are in plain sight, but hiding behind obvious objects. Expect discomfort in these fragments, but do not let that discomfort dissuade you from integrating them into your whole. When integrated, the discomfort will fade.
Maybe you do not integrate a fragment of yourself in the time and the place where you pick it up. Maybe you pick it up, hold on to it and integrate it later in another place. Perhaps you have the piece, but you still need to pick up other pieces so this piece will fit. Maybe it can not fit in until these other later pieces are achieved. Perhaps there is a place inside of your self where you store these random pieces while waiting to find the others that they will fit in. If that is the case, you will feel these pieces. They have a vibration in a part of you. That new piece will attach to many pieces stored in this area of you. You will feel more whole and integrate as soon as this new piece fits itself in. It is still raw and not used to your body, nor is your body used to it. But soon it will be complete, the integration process will be complete and all those random left side pieces will fit themselves in. This will bring you very near to the completion of gathering what you have been looking for.
Nobody is without pain of sadness in their soul. The question is how close are you to somebody that you feel theirs? Are you able to soothe their pain? Their sadness? To be able to do this love, compassion.
A fallen Tower has the power to reveal many facets of the self that were up until then, hidden. Facets locked away in forgotten rooms and crawl spaces will be found in the rubble once the tower has fallen. This often manifests as new found strength. Not new found in that it had never existed before. No, it has been there all the time, but now it is for you to use. It had been forgotten from lack of use. It had not been used because life took you directions away from it. Simply became misplaced, lost and then forgotten. But in the rubble of the tower, much that was hidden has been revealed. This is one of the great strengths of the tower. This is a positive aspect of the tower. Consider this when contemplating the tower card- the revelation of lost or forgotten strength.
When a Tower falls, reassemble the pieces that fit. The pieces that didn’t fit never belonged. Those that do fit is the truth of who you are.
There are a number of people who use their logical mind to decide how they would like to be perceived by others. Once decided, they then act the part. They put on their masks and attempt to be this that they want to be perceived as. But it is not their truth. It is conceivable that they have not yet discovered their truth. The problem inherent with presenting this self to the world is that, in that it is not the truth, it leads to a Tower situation. Tower situations such as these can be prevented by understanding your true self and presenting that to the world rather than a false version of yourself.
Keep in mind, the Tower is tied to expectations. An expectation is a desired outcome. Is this desired outcome tied to your highest and best interest, part of your birth vision? Or is it tied to ego? If it is tied to ego, of course this will become a Tower incident because it is not tied to your highest and best interest. This is part of the reason why embracing the Hanged man will mean much fewer Tower incidents. By surrendering, you are allowing for the flow of what is natural and meant to be. By struggling against the natural flow of what is meant to be, you are building a Tower. It will happen every time.
