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: Six of Wands – Inverted

Six of Wands: Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Your creative energy can manifest the strangest things, but often times they are exactly what you need at the moment. Your unique humor can cause others to laugh and help them through troubled times, but it also helps you as well. Allow your compassion and frivolity to light the darkness and help others find their way out of the shadows and from under the mushrooms.


Additional Insight:

Your spiritual beliefs and unique humor can often carry you through times of trials and help you to handle change and transition. Share that ability to assist others who do not have the same perspective. Not everyone has that inner strength and many fall into deep depression when troubles occur or a loss is experienced. It doesn’t matter if that change is the loss of a job, relationship, friend, pet or relative. The end of something tangible has equal emotional sorrow as those things that are intangible.

You can aid them in not falling too far into the depths of despair with your tempered humor and compassionate attention. Sometimes looking at the silver lining is equally as important as feeling sorrow and letting it out.

Too much of anything isn’t good for anyone. Holding sadness in can fester and cause more harm than good. Letting sadness rule your life isn’t a positive expression of emotion either. Ensuring that one expresses a balanced approach to their emotions allows one to grieve over things or people lost; and yet still maintain a sense of emotional stability.

It’s never easy losing someone or something that was important to you. But the only real constant in life is that things change. Fight that change and you’ll lose the battle and miss the chance to find love or fulfillment in the future. Accept that things change for a reason and celebrate what they brought to you in your life and you can focus on the good things in life and be open to new lessons and experiences it has to offer you.

Everyone needs a little encouragement, a little face to face confirmation to see a smile or to know someone else let’s them know “It really will be ok”.  Sometimes a person simply wants someone to listen. A face to face moment of communication, where compassion can be seen. That smile or the look of compassionate eyes can go a long way to helping them make it through yet another issue. It’s amazing how much a kind word or simple smile can lift someone out of their fear and hopelessness.
