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!) Continue reading

Clearing The Negative and Setting Protection

Everyone has the ability to feel subtle energies around them. I’m sure you can think of a time when you walked into a room where an argument had been happening, feeling the anger or angst. Maybe you’ve even shared a story with a friend saying “You could cut the tension with a knife”.

You don’t have to be psychic or overly sensitive to the energies around you for this type of event to happen. It’s part of our natural instincts as living animals. Human animals maybe, but we still have the ability to sense what’s around us.

In today’s world meditation is viewed from two perspectives, from the spiritual form of enlightenment and becoming one with spirit. Or through the eyes of mainstream medicine as a non-denominational practice that can relieve stress. If a non-denominational practice interests you, try the 5 Minute Meditation for bringing in a little relaxation and escape from the anxieties around you.

The 5 Minute Meditation For Balance

Take 5 Minutes To Balance Your Energy

Balancing Your Energies

Meditation in both forms of devotional and non-spiritual exercise has been shown to be beneficial for relieving stress, improving health and increasing productivity. But for many it’s more than an alternative medical approach to dealing with stress and anxiety. You can read more about the Proven Benefits of Meditation, even if you don’t include a spiritual aspect to the practice.

Too much of anything isn’t a good place to be. Living too much “up there” or “out there” can keep you from paying attention to the physical world you’re currently part of. Being flighty can create unwanted circumstances that cause you to drop things, miss things, or keep you from thinking clearly about what’s at hand or needs to get done.

Feeling weighed down, heavy or dragging across the Earth is also an extreme that can cause problems. It can pull you down into despair, sadness and create a lack of desire or energy to do anything that needs to be done. Continue reading

5 Minute Clearing & Healing Meditation

Clearing The Negative & Healing From Within

Meditation

Close Your Eyes & Relax

We all go through times of negative self talk. Most of us are often our own worst critics. When we buy into these destructive self assessments we open a door that attracts more negativity into our world. And often times that begins a the snowball effect, rolling down hill getting larger and more overwhelming.

But it’s not enough to simply stop the negative thinking, or taking in the negativity from others. We often create a void that wants to be filled with something. If we let it be, it more often than not becomes filled with more or returning negativity.

The easiest way to correct this problem is to fill the void with beneficial energy that will help you heal from within and promote a sense of well being through your day, week, month and life.

Meditation

Close Your Eyes & Relax

Everyone has moments when they reach their limit and feel overwhelmed. Without sorrow we cannot know happiness. But how we move through those depleting emotions determines how we move forward through them.

If you can sit down and align your thoughts and energies with the Divine in your life; you can find renewed strength to endure and persevere. Have compassion for yourself and your feelings. You have a right to feel your emotions and work through them. But all things have a balance. Too much of anything can be detrimental.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ace of Swords – Inverted

Ace Of Swords - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

The strife is coming to an end. Don’t be worried or upset about losing the things that were holding you back in the first place. You will end this in triumph. Show compassion, not only for yourself and loved ones, but for those who have been conquered by no fault of their own. There are innocent victims on both sides. And some need reassurance and a kind word. It really will be ok.


Additional Insight:

It really has been a long drawn out struggle to bring things together. Sometimes things don’t work out and we can look back and see what happened. Whither it’s because we rushed into choices out of fear, or waited to long and missed opportunities, don’t blame yourself.

Worrying over what you should have done, or could have done will not change the past or fix the present. It will only keep you anchored in the past. Let it go as things come to an end. You are the one who will be triumphant and you don’t need to gloat, or feel better than the others over that success. You could derail what you have and will accomplish.

Show compassion, not only to those who will continue to struggle, but to those around you who are still unsure of the current course. They have hope and faith in you. But they too have been hurt and worry about their security and well-being.

Sometimes a hug really can go a very LONG way!

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Four of Swords

Four of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Allow yourself to be cradled in love and compassion. Rest and release the stress that has overwhelmed you and taken the color of joy out of your life. You are not alone, you will always be held by your inner spirit and the Divine in your life. So while it may seem like everything has come crashing in, you will survive and your kingdom will find brightness again.

 


Additional Insight:

There are many ways to release stress from your life. Meditation, exercise, even giving yourself permission to have a good cry can help you let go of all that you’ve held inside. The only real constant in the Divine Universe is change. So while things are hard today, and the stress of loss or struggle seems to hang over your head, know it will not last forever.

Don’t allow your fear and anxiety to get the best of you now. Don’t lose faith in your beliefs, or in yourself. Rather now is the time to fall back on what you believe and to remember you are never alone in your fight to survive.

Start your day with a smile, even though it maybe hard and a simply affirmation to remind you that you can and will get through this!

I can because I am one with the Divine Universe
I choose to live with joy in the here and now.
I face each and every day with empowerment and love.
And So It Is.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Cups –

Nine of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Sometimes all you need is a hug. Let someone know it’s going to be ok and give them a hug, or a simple touch on the shoulder. Things aren’t as bad as you think they are. There are many blessings around you and all your cups will be filled shortly. Hang in a little longer.



Additional Insight:

It’s amazing how far the power of touch can uplift another person. Whither you’re the one needing the hug, or the one who can give it, share your strength with compassion and caring. A simple hug can let someone know they’re not alone and they’re facing the trials on their path in solitude. Even those with partners can feel segregated or pushed aside. A touch on the shoulder, a pat on the back or even a simple holding of the hand to show caring and concern can be an immeasurable gift to someone who needs it.

If you’re the one needing the hug; don’t let the stress of being responsible weigh you down. Those that attempt to rise up and be accountable for their actions will discover rewards in the end. It’s easy to feel the burdens in hard times. But you have overcome more than you realize. You have survived through the thick and thin. You will over come the current stresses and you will succeed. Believe in yourself and let the worry fall by the wayside.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing – Seven of Pentacles – Inverted

7 of Pentacles: Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

It may seem like the little vermin are scurrying around you constantly. You can allow them to annoy you, or you can learn from watching them what not to do with your own possessions and prosperity. You can allow them to turn things upside down, letting your finances fall out of your pockets. Or you can rise above the pettiness and keep your thoughts in Divine light to grow and keep your abundance.



Additional Insight:

If you focus on the people who insist on pushing your buttons and create stress and strife, you will make some costly mistakes. Don’t allow them to control your emotions or you duties. Focus on your tasks and pay attention to the details. Giving into their attempts to control you only gives them more power than they deserve.

Ignoring their jibes and jabs will turn the tables and allow you to push their buttons for once. It will also allow you to retake control of your emotions and your actions. Doing so today will keep you from paying out for things you otherwise wouldn’t have to deal with. And can’t afford in the first place.

Living In Balance

The Balance Of Life and Spirit

Black and WhiteMany people these days are taking a good look at themselves and their lives, trying to find a balance for achieving happiness. Or at the very least contentment. They look at how they interact with their family unit, how they conduct themselves within business matters and how much time they spend on making the all mighty dollar and that illusive career or achievement of success. And many realize they’re living a life out of balance and wondering how to find the solution.

A lot of people shy away from looking within as part of the recipe for change. They think of looking within and an exercise to become critical of the self and that introspection seems like it only makes things worse.  They being playing the blame game of what has been, or what choices have made that contributed to the imbalance. Guilt for what they did or didn’t do, isn’t going to go back in time and change those things. Continue reading
