paranoia

“My paranoia wasn't always right, but just to be on the safe side, I never went to sleep with a clown in the room.”  Mark Henwick, Hidden Trump

Paranoia is a distorted perception of reality, in which one sees threats and conspiracies everywhere. It can be a symptom of mental illness, or it can be a reaction to real or perceived danger. Paranoia can be seen as a way of projecting one's own shadow onto others, or as a way of avoiding responsibility for one's own feelings and actions. Paranoia is caution turned to excessive dread. Drawing this card today invites you to discern the difference between true danger and the creations of your mind, and to find serenity through self-awareness.

Paranoia Mantra: I trust in the goodness of the universe.
