12 Taslim

Taslim, or The Hanged Man in traditional Tarot, is the card of suspending our beliefs. The word Taslim does not refer to the outward state of hanging upside down but to an inner state fostered through this spiritual exercise that Sufis have long partaken in to learn to surrender and to suspend judgements and preconceived notions about life. When this card appears for you, you are being asked to examine any old, calcified beliefs you may have. This card points you toward retreat, meditation, and mindfulness so that you may accept yourself and widen your perspective when looking at outer circumstances. This is a good time to reflect, release rigid ideas, and let go of control.
