“Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage.” 
Brene Brown

It seems almost counter-intuitive that vulnerability, an emotion that makes you feel weak and exposed, actually requires great strength to allow it. To have vulnerability is to have the courage to open your heart and express your true Self. It is the willingness to be seen and known, to be open to experience pain as well as joy, to be have the willingness to take a deeper dive. This card reminds you that vulnerability is an essential ingredient for authentic relationships and personal growth. Although it is hard if you’ve been hurt, remember to call upon your resources of inner strength because it is through vulnerability that we open ourselves up to the possibility of love and intimacy.

Vulnerability Mantra: "In vulnerability, I find courage and personal growth."
