Look familiar ? Almost everyone of us at some point during our dreams has felt this experience...FALLING !
"WAKE UP ! WAKE UP ! WAKE UP !"
Remember that "thud" at the end of the dream which felt like a 'shock' through your system? Kinda like our lighting bolt here:
....that's the Tower card. One minute you're at the top of the tower, enjoying the view..the next minute...just sneaker and sky in your headlights !
The Tower card (# 16) is not always what it seems. Let's look again at our photo:
We see a person who appears to be falling from the tall building in the background. His left hand is reaching out towards the building in a state of desperation. From the looks of it, he probably won't land very well... ~SPLAT !~ This is the main theme for the Tower: a sudden change in your life that will cause temporary chaos and upheaval...like falling from a 50 story building ! This card also has a helpful side to it.
To understand this point, one must ask the question: "Why do we dream of falling anyway?"
Listen to how someone on the web put it:
"Well think about how you feel when you trip [fall] in real life. Basically when you lose balance, your brain all of a sudden sends out to all neurons in the body...
...all of that in like a fraction of a second. When your mind tells your body to do that when you're dreaming, your outside body reacts and your dream can't handle it."- Jai K.
...because the man had listened to his Guide's voice to "Leap as the Fool" (armed with forewarning)...
....good thing, too, 'cause there wasn't much time to explain...~BOOM !~
When we see the Tower card we need to ask the question, "Has this happened yet?", because if it hasn't...
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"...
...meaning that it is better to avoid some situations all-together, rather than evoking the "wait-and-see" approach !!! Learn to trust your inner voice and get the hell-outta-Dodge !
