Definition: An undivided or unbroken completeness or totality with nothing wanting; integrity; unity; a coherent system of parts working together as one.
When we are whole, we feel complete, fulfilled, and that nothing needs to be added or taken away from the moment or from ourselves. This sense of fulfillment is neither contingent upon experiencing simple pleasures in life, nor from achieving lofty accomplishments. The experience of wholeness usually comes from a sense that all aspects of one’s self are aligned in dynamic harmony.
As we move through life, we may encounter difficulties that shock us, or we may suffer losses, some of which may feel so devastating they shake us down to our core. Very strong emotional experiences can create deep injury to Self, wherein parts of our emotional world may become frozen and lost to us. We may become unbalanced in body, mind, soul and spirit. Coming back into our wholeness is a journey of healing and reclaiming and accepting all parts of ourselves. We are greater than the sum of our parts.
If you have drawn this card it may indicate a movement towards or a confirmation of an inherent integrity of someone or something. You may want to explore how integrity impacts you at this moment. What do you need in your life to feel whole? Do you make choices that will allow you to flow towards wholeness on all levels of your being? As you examine your collection of moving parts, is something missing or misaligned? Are you only expressing part of yourself?

Every week I shuffle and draw a card to write about and represent the week ahead. My only rule is that if I draw one that I have already written about, I draw another. In this way I am using the spirit of the cards themselves.
