A mother and child sit huddled in a boat. Seven swords stand upright in front of them. Swords represent mind and thoughts signifying their victim mindset. They are trapped by their fears and doubts based on their past and present circumstances. HOWEVER, the oarsman is rowing the boat from troubled waters to smooth waters.The vista ahead is a lovely group of islands with clumps of feathery trees. In order to see the bright vision ahead it is sometimes necessary to leave the troubled past behind. This takes some faith and a hopeful mindset. Flip the switch and allow your mind to embrace magical thinking.
