“Nothing is ever the way we were taught how it would be; as we all have the components of our unique self to add to every experience. Re-invent yourself in as many situations as you can.“
The 8 of Challenges is to generate the power to rise above cultural conditioning and manifest what lives within.
The 'Nan Yar - Who Am I' card game for personal development includes four colors - or groups - of fourteen cards each. We know these colors from normal card games and the Tarot game as well. The colors represent the Challenges, Insights, Gifts and Tools that everyone has in his or her life. Besides the colors, the game has 21 Trump Cards, or Archetypes, that each have their own Challenge, Insight, Gift or Tool.
The Challenges reflect the incentives every human being encounters on its path that force that person to come into action and create its own life, true to its core. It is the development of the I-consciousness, the nucleus of who you really are, that is at play here, as opposed to the masks people tend to wear in certain situations. Challenges are void of any pretence or make belief. They are so to speak: the real thing, that travels with its rightful owner no matter where that owner goes. It’s the thing one cant hide from or escape. In the game of Tarot, Challenges coincide with Swords.
Characteristic: Re-birth, Eternity.
Every number has a unique energy, and therefore a unique meaning and role in the interpretation of the card, in combination with the color or the archetype.
The 8 represents the first insights you’ll find behind the veil of illusions. The number 8 begins adding value. We build upon what is already there, and give it our own interpretation.
To get started by yourself, the Nan Yar card game and its booklet can be bought on this website. The booklet with explanation and interpretation is also separately sold as pdf or e-book.
