Turn The Frown Upside Down

“Happy Wolf” – Photographer Unknown

Laughter Is The Best Medicine

In times of stress and anxiety it’s easy for people to become overwhelmed with their own emotions of fear or sadness. Worry may dominate your thoughts from morning to night. Fear can take hold and change your focus from what you want to accomplish in a day, to pulling in more fear and anxiety. It becomes a snowball that grows and grows until it seems to overwhelm everything in your life.

We all go through it. We all get caught up in the latest bad news. But sometimes it seems there’s nothing good to see anymore and everything is just getting worse and worse. It’s hard to break that cycle at times, and that’s when we need to ask for help. There’s nothing wrong with talking to someone about that downward spiral of emotions. Try to remember “that feelings are real but they aren’t reality” (Dan Harmon, 2017 – This is a great story reported in the Washington Post about author Dan Harmon’s twitter response to a fan. It’s really worth the read!)

On January 9th, 2014 a message for the Daily Tarot Meditation share some insight into what the average person might do to turn things around. It involves laughter. In a world that seems to be filled with fear, anxiety and angst it might be a good time to remember Life is about Balance. That means we can choose to dwell in despair or we can laugh in the face of adversity as needed. We don’t have to choose to be low and glum allowing the angst of the world around us dominate how we choose to feel. Here is an excerpt from that day 2014 reading. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing – Two of Cups

Two of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Accept the gifts of spirit even if you don’t yet understand their purpose. The events in your life come to bring lessons of enlightenment, be they karmic or spiritual in nature. We may not always see what they bring to teach us, but when we accept their energy and make choices that break old negative patterns, we achieve a step forward toward our own spiritual wisdom and understanding.



Additional Insight:

We set the path that we walk in life. Either as a spiritual blue print, or through the choices we make in life. Our way forward or backward comes by our own hand. If you repeat your steps; consider looking at the situations you find yourself in from a higher spiritual perspective. What pattern are you repeating?

Take the situation into meditation and contemplate on the choices you’ve made in the past. Are they choices made out of anger or hurt? Are they decisions based on what someone else did to you in the past and you’re applying that same scenario to new situations with new players?

It’s time to set the old baggage down and leave it behind. You no longer need it and it’s only holding you back from moving forward freely. Forgive yourself for carrying it for so long. Allow your inner spirit to engulf you in compassionate loving light, soothing your spirit in green healing light. Then let it go and move on. Make an effort not to assume others will treat you the same way the foes of the past did. It’s not fair to the new actors in your life’s play and it’s not fair to you either.
