“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 projecting your own shadow onto others. It is also a way of avoiding responsibility for your own feelings and actions. Paranoia is natural caution turned into excessive dread. Drawing this card today invites you to discern the difference between true danger and the creations of your mind, and to find peace through self-awareness.

Paranoia Mantra: I trust in the universe and in myself
