Every day, a million little anchors do their best to drag your spirit under the surface of your consciousness. Left unchecked, they can pull you under. While you won’t drown in a literal sense, these dark thoughts can pull you to a very dark, cold, and dreadful place.
If you know that the anchors are there, it’s easy enough to cut the ropes, and let your natural emotional buoyancy bring you back to the surface where you can breathe free. Those negative thoughts only exist in shadow, and crumble to dust in the light.
Of course you’re not “worthless,” “weak,” “ugly,” or “unloved.” A simple examination of that heavy anchor — no matter why it exists — can crumble it into dust. But those thoughts are sneaky. They don’t play fair. They don’t like to be seen in the full light of day, where their ridiculousness and obvious inaccuracy can be seen for the nonsense they are. So they hide, and slip their ropes around the unguarded places in our minds when we’re busy trying to get on with our lives.
This sigil speaks to the simple power of daylight. In the light of our saner and more self-aware moments, these negative thoughts vanish like the shadows they are.
