Don't spend much time getting into the negativity; just see if you can find a word that describes the general sense. Maybe it's frustration. Or loneliness, or boredom. (If you're feeling so wonderful that you can't imagine feeling more wonderful, you can save this exercise for another day.) The courage that is mentioned in the "Illusion" card may be required here for the moment that it takes to turn and look at how you’re really feeling. The great thing is, once it's been identified, you can shift right away to something that feels better. This can actually take some courage too, because it can feel pretty strange to venture somewhere in our thoughts and in our emotional state that feels new or different from how we've been feeling.
So, let's say you’ve been feeling frustrated. What would you prefer? What is the opposite of the feeling of frustration? The answer only has to make sense to you. Feel around for it inside you. Maybe a feeling of "openness" is what you want. Or "relief". Once you've hit on something that makes you feel a bit more expanded inside, you can begin to really play with this. What does openness feel like? What does relief really feel like? Does it feel like room to breathe, or like a wide open road in front of you? Does it feel like time for yourself, or a big party with laughter and music and good friends? Or a quiet forest with some light filtering down through the trees? Find your own words, and really feel how they're hitting you inside. You are seeing through the veil and discovering the Beautiful Truth that is you.
Today, I look for evidence of the Beautiful Truth. I make mountains out of molehills, noticing the smallest blessings and appreciating them with everything I've got. Before long, no matter where I look I see only possibility and perfection.
