Three of Swords (R) - It is always hard to bear the pain of separation or understand why we can be inflicted with such sorrow. Learn to be receptive to circumstances which are not constructive learning situations and consciously make the choice to remove yourself from any situation which produces sorrow or negative vibrations. Become aware of your natural "inner" sources of creativity and release any dependency on others for your ideas. Concentrate your efforts on organization - see the past as a whole picture. Stop limiting your viewpoint by focusing only on the smaller aspects which created the sorrow and heartache - this only causes confusion.

Be the peacemaker - never be afraid to say you are sorry. Always think before you speak so that you will not feel sorry after it's too late. When something "appears" so painful that you find yourself trying to push it away - trying not to think about it and avoiding any reminders of it - realize that this attitude only keeps the pain within you and actually increases its hold on you. Learn to accept your situation so that the healing process will not become blocked. Allow yourself to experience the pain - give yourself the right to grieve and release the heartache. Let it go - then, once the upset, pain and tears have gone - open the door to new experience. Your aching heart will need someone.
