From a TarotGnosis© Understanding, The Hanged Man is The Pivotal Card of The Tarot.
Hanged Man Symbol Language is explored from a Spiritual perspective as a Soul Key.
From an enlightening Point of View(POV), reaching The Hanged Man in one’s consciousness, signifies a Soul’s Grand Turning Point whereby one’s personality within their Soul, consciously opens to a complete surrender of no longer needing to “be right” or “special,” as they are recognized as absurd motivations. Why?
It is because the person, as the Hanged Man, a metaphor highlighting a prized inner state of awareness, releases his tensions of personal contraction as he births, from a personally recognized awareness, a progressive knowing that all defensive & narcissistic pursuits are of the mind (intellectual & emotional intelligences), are rooted in a sense & belief of being separate from The Unity of Oneness.
Anything identified as being separated from Oneness is solely ego motivated and creates useless unless pain and suffering. Is such Spiritual unhappiness the Soul’s experiential intentions? Of course not, and so the mature Soul makes all life goals secondary to Spiritual-God goals. This shift is not done as a struggle, per se, because that implies resistance, it is done more as an understanding & recognition.
All such ego/life/ concepts and attachments are NOW recognized as untrue by the Soul and accepted by one’s personality, too. Such an acceptance and agreement has been long awaited by the Indwelling Spirit Who gladly “dies to this world” while regaining immortality. The Hanged Man is a beautiful symbol for this process of awakening into pursuing one’s transcendence.
This is, indeed, a Sacred moment of consciousness shifting because the Free Will “gets sacrificed” (for those who are partial to this metaphor of personal atonement) on the altar of awareness, whereby the Divine exchanges the sense of separation back into a harmonic resonance with One Will. The words of Saint Francis of Assisi, “Not my will, but thine be done, oh Lord,” elegantly summarize this understanding as a joyful inheritance with no hint of loss. This is the essence of The Hanged Man – Pure receptive, “perfected cup,” open mind, non-resistance, Soul as feminine.
It is a momentous occasion where one’s Soul meets with one’s personality, as one’s personality has gained the critical mass of humility to own that all their machinations cannot meet the wisdom & power their Higher SELF/God/Spirit.
And so, the personality or ego gives up its fight, might, and right to be whatever it was that got its Soul all fired-up in the pursuit of separation specialness that ended up in driving such an awful wedge between the Soul’s Spirit & personality, creating the wide gap of suffering & pain it devolved into over lifetimes.
Giving it up, is the empowerment of The Hanged Man. It is the opening by which one’s Soul re-enters the transitional door to transcendence in Understanding The TRUTH of one’s Being as Spirit in a body. Beliefs are examined and allowed to be be revealed as erroneous or correct in their information.
It’s the KEY that unlocks personal fear or stubbornness into shifting one’s awareness, and more importantly one’s acceptance, of the part Free Will has been playing in creating one’s personal unconscious dilemmas of all that is NOT Spirit/God, namely, anything painful, harmful, suffering, ad nauseum.
Finally, the freedom of One Will is recognized, & choosing to live, “Not my will, but Thine, Oh Lord…” becomes the joie d’vivre. This is the lovely gift of The Hanged Man.
This is the same concept wrapped in different terms/words/labels as that of desiring to live life fulfilling and aligning with Pure God/Spirit Intention, or one’s TRUE Whole Soul Purpose, thus, One Will.
It is also reacquaints us with the lessons of how-to be ‘The Perfected Cup‘ of Pure Receiving.
Essentially, this is the state of opening one’s mind to listening to Spirit (Inner Voice of Higher SELF) as the guiding informing Source of making decisions and discerning issues in striking balance, or in choosing how to align all choices back into congruence with Spirit Principles (not necessarily religious dogma).
Spirit IS beyond dogma and man-made laws, unless, of course they are totally congruent with Spirit/God.
Said another way, this is securing an actualized Direct & Pure orientation point or connection with Spirit Who is having your ear in a manner that has your undivided attention and cooperation for behavior changes & choices. It’s a shift from resisting to collaborating and cooperating with your Indwelling Spirit-SELF of SELFGnosis.
Such a focused attention engenders, without fail, an alive listening reconnection to your Higher SELF without any interference of separation ideations, confusions, dogmas, doctrines, beliefs, assumptions, opinions, ad nauseum.
I shall speak more of The Hanged Man because our Free Will is the sticking point of Humanity and our en masse inability to break from our entrenchment & enslavement to The Wheel of Life, thereby repeating untold birth & death cycles of karmic conglomerations.
All of it so unnecessary when you TRULY understand and embrace your Hanged Man.
