Burn the past and renew life

Posted on: 22nd January 2024

The ace of spades is seen as a symbol of death and often represents the dark side, the shadow side, of human nature.

But we should also see it as representing a perfect opportunity to face and clean up our shadow side, burning away the conditioning memories of an unhelpful past and transforming a ‘dark’ life into a vibrant one, creating a fresh start and a rebirth.

Anyone facing a difficult time in their life should think of the ace of spades as a powerful symbol for destruction of the past and creation of the new. Even though things may be tough now, there is always the potential for something new and better to come along. We always have a choice to make.

The ace of spades can also be a reminder to live life to the full and to make the most of every single opportunity that comes your way. It is a symbol of hope, courage, and determination.

Further inspiration can be found in our book The Way: Finding Peace in Turbulent Times.
