Hekamiah and the 9 of Swords
The Tarot card, 9 of Swords, and the Shem HaMephorash Guardian Angel, Hekamiah, share a profound connection. The 9 of Swords, represented by the image of a person overwhelmed by worries and anxieties, reflects the mental anguish and torment that we all experience in life at times. It symbolises the negative thoughts, fears, and self-imposed limitations that can consume us.
Hekamiah offers liberation from mental anguish and guidance in overcoming worrying thoughts by restoring dignity and self-awareness. She helps us remember that we are not separate from the Divine. This angel is the embodiment of loyalty, inspiring us to understand our own worth even if others belittle us.
By invoking Hekamiah and connecting with her energy through chanting the mantra “Heh-KOH-Meh” or through prayer, we can seek relief from the burdens of the negative thoughts and emotions that the 9 of Swords represents. Hekamiah replaces these emotions with a willingness to help others and to honour our commitments to ourselves and others.
Through the guidance of Hekamiah, we can release our worries and anxieties through understanding our unity with the divine and cosmic laws. This allows us to embrace the unconditional love and support that surrounds us, bringing peace to our minds and hearts. The correspondence between the 9 of Swords and Hekamiah encourages us to let go of our fears, find inner strength, and live authentically, guided by reverence for the order of creation.
