Ask yourself right now what is causing your unhappiness. Name it. Is it because you wish you were thinner? Do you wish someone would love you more? Do you wish you felt better? Do you wish someone would do what you want?

I do not care what it is that is making you unhappy. I just want you to name it, and name it now. Call it out. It may sound stupid if you name it. (That is actually a good thing, because you can see it for what it is). It may not sound stupid. It does not matter.
If you name what is making you unhappy, it can no longer hide from you. It loses its control over you. Naming it lessens its grip. Then you have more control over it rather than it having more control over you.
Feelings are sneaky, and they can get very confused. We are always thinking something. What we are thinking is causing our feelings. It is important to identify what you are thinking.
Now you get to decide if you allow the thing you named to go on making you miserable. It is no longer a mystery. If you want, you can send it back into the nothingness from where it came.
If you name what is making you unhappy, you will that see that your unhappiness is caused by resisting the present moment, whatever that may be. It is why we are so obsessed with the future. We think the future is going to fix our present moment.
Now that you have named what is making you unhappy right now, picture yourself letting it go. Be open to the possibility that happiness can occur right here, right now.
Ask yourself, what if I was meant to be happy right here right now, in these exact circumstances? How would I think and act differently?
If I let go of that thing/person/situation I think I’m supposed to have, I can relax. I can be at peace. Even if you prefer things to be different, you can still be at peace and total acceptance right now.
Now….there’s room for miracles. Whenever you feel unhappy or uncomfortable, ask yourself, what am I struggling against? And then surrender fully to the present moment. Do not try to change it or struggle against it. Go with it. Let the present moment take you to a higher place.
The miracle happens right here, right now. It does not happen in the past. It does not happen in the future. The present is the only place where the miracle can occur. That means if you are always waiting for things to be different, you will never get to the miracle.
I know this, because I spent a lot of my life wishing things were different. I actually remember a friend of mine in college saying “Lizzy always wishes for things that are impossible, like she wishes it was Friday when it’s Tuesday.” I will never forget that, because she was right. I was spending my life wishing things were different.
It’s counterintuitive. You think, if I want a good life, then I better wish and strive and not be happy in the now, or I may get stuck here. (If I’m not wishing for Friday, it may never come). When actually if you go deeper into the now, your future will be happier too.
Have faith my beautiful friend. Everything is working in your favor. The Universe is on it. You just have to stay out of it’s way. You can do that by raising your faith. You can raise your faith by being happier right here right now.
Here’s to patience, trust, and faith that The Universe has your back,

Keep reading below for my weekend tarot reading!
Weekend reading. The first top and bottom card is for Friday, then Saturday, then Sunday. Friday the rescue cat card tells us hard times are over. Breathe a sigh of relief as you now know you can choose love instead of fear (bottom card). Saturday’s Card is the seagull (top middle). Be open to any message you receive Saturday even if the messenger is rather blunt or offensive. Remember your outer experiences reflect your inner condition (bottom middle card), so it you are strong in who you are, you can handle a blunt message. Go with it!
Use that message to make your detailed plan on Sunday (seahorse – top right). If you are trying to attract something into your life, then remember being comfortable in your own skin is the sexiest thing ever (bottom right). You will attract what you need by being yourself. Even if you are starting a business and want to attract clients. Remember do not pretend to be what you are not! Go deeper into who you are, and they will come!
Peace and love! (Top deck animal tarot by Radleigh Valentine pub by Hay House. Bottom deck The Universe Has Your Back by Gabby Bernstein pub by Hay House.)
