Strength Comes From The Beauty Within


I enjoy the idea of true strength coming from a place of wisdom deep within. As I get older (and hopefully wiser), I find myself connecting to ideals of my youth that I thought I had shed many moons ago. Patience, integrity from people in positions of power, vitality & good health, compassion and let’s not forget forgiveness.

The STRENGTH card is not a card of brute strength and force but rather guides us to identify with the strength within. When you truly connect with your compassion, your faith (whatever that is), your kindness and your purpose you can let go of fear based feelings. This is your true strength, the ability to love and forgive.

The STRENGTH card is full of beautiful and subtle imagery. The doves flying low in the long grass and the single dove adorning the centre of her shield signify the importance of peace as one heads off to battle leaving all that feels familiar behind. Her shield and halo are a radiant purple, signifying compassion, sensitivity, understanding and power. The gigantic tiger she rides off to battle is a well recognized symbol of power and strength; the ultimate challenge is to recognize the importance of moderation. When our ego rises, we often feel the need for intensity and charging forward. This is counter-productive. It would serve our existence better to remember our true strength – compassion.

The rainbow represents a spiritual awakening as the light shines into the darkness. There is always hope no matter how dire a situation seems.

And the lovely AA Ariel represents this card, she is strongly connected to nature. She embodies our need for inner healing and manifestation.

As we enter an unprecedented time of increased global volatility in so many areas – religion, economics, food production, environmental sensitivities and child poverty – it is vital to embrace our softer sides. Your true strength lies in your ability to love, not fight.

When we open our hearts to love, we take a step down the path to happiness. Take a look at your own life and the situations where you can apply this inner strength over physical forces. 

Today’s card is from the Angel Tarot by Radleigh Valentine & Doreen Virtue: STRENGTH featuring Archangel Ariel. It is the 11th card on the journey of The Dreamer in the Major Arcana, symbolizing a pivotal time of growth.

Light & love, Lisa

    1. Amen to that!! The Divine Feminine belongs everywhere. This world is sorely in need of a better yin yang balance if we are going to move past ego based expressions of strength that causes so much pain & suffering to women (and men) around the globe. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love this post so much!! It is so wonderful and inspiring and full of wisdom! Thank you so much for this beautiful blessing this glorious morning!

  2. I needed this today… and already today I have clicked onto various posts giving me the same message.. Many thanks for your beautiful post.. Have a wonderful Day.. xx Love Sue

  3. What you say “I enjoy the idea of true strength coming from a place of wisdom deep within” is perfectly true. This matches with our yogic traditions and other belief systems where the 7 chakras are energy points in our subtle body and when they are brought in balance we get the ‘true strength’.

    Thank you for a lovely post!

  4. You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be actually one thing which I believe I would
    by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex
    and very broad for me. I am looking forward in your subsequent put up, I will try to get the hold of it!

    1. It is one thing to grasp in theory and another to live day in and day out with compassion and forgiveness. If it were so easy the world would be a very different place indeed. No war and sustainability would be commonplace in all areas of business and life. This is why I study and meditate and pursue greater understanding. As I often say, “When we know better we do better. Or at least try as often as we can!!” Thank you so much for stopping by. All good things to you.

  5. Its like you read my mind! You seem to grasp a lot
    approximately this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something.
    I believe that you simply could do with a few percent to power
    the message home a little bit, however other than that,
    this is great blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.
