Sometimes when we look into ourselves, we don’t like what we see. We may feel a wound and experience salt being poured into it. A deep sting. Such a reflection shows us something we can choose to heal. It will come up again, if we choose not to. It will show itself on many levels, in relationships, in jobs, in choices, etc. Our mental realities and realms that our mind creates seem endless. When we have a tendency to be overly mental, we become detached from the heart as in the Son of Swords of Tarot.

A strong, healthy balance, a deep groundedness, a joyful experience and outlook always assist us. One might think, ‘What joy can be found in finding something within that I don’t like or that causes me such suffering?’

The joy of releasing it. The joy of realizing something that we may not have been prepared to see until this moment. The joy of our inner strength. Of recognizing this. How far we have come to trust ourselves to carry ourselves through and beyond. The joy of knowing that with every thought we choose to focus on, we create it’s matching feeling; some would call this karma. The thought causing effect of the feeling. Choice in how to emote this, or hold it to our heart to cradle it as we heal.
How joyful is knowing that we have our own back? How joyful is knowing that we in trust and strength, are there for ourselves no matter what.

How joyful is the balance this creates within our being. As we think we feel. As we allow ourselves to look into ourselves and see what we may not think we want to see, we can also deeply know ourselves and give ourselves such a great opportunity to expunge and move forward!

We no longer feel the need to cling to what does not serve our highest good. We are our own best friend. Lover. Beloved.
