On December 21st, the Winter Solstice saw our longest, darkest, night. The time is turning now to move forward with the winter learnings and insights to lighten up our lives. Christmas is a time to celebrate all that we have in our lives. Along with the “turning in” and “looking within” of the Winter Solstice, it is a time for appreciating and receiving the valuable lessons that help us grow and transform into happier, more whole beings. As we let go… we lighten up and can spread our light around the world simply by allowing our own to shine. And, as the Earth turns more and more quickly, time is, literally, speeding up. So make the most of this time to disconnect from your have to’s and responsibilities.
Send only the texts, emails and messages that spread love and light and peace. Read only cards and books and magazines that help you feel light and happy – and the same goes films and programs on TV… soak up the cheesiness and fill your boots with glee!
We are as happy and healthy as our physical cells, the thoughts we think create the emotions we feel so the happier we are in mind as so we are in body. Hence the celebrations are not to be taken lightly, yet rather – as an opportunity to express and be as delighted and uplifted as you dare to feel and be!
Share the smiles with others on the streets, sing carols and listen to music that helps your heart to sing.
This helps your mind and body relax and is an enormous boost for your wellbeing.
And rather than worrying about what you eat – savour each piece of chocolate or morsel of meat. Appreciate the flavours, the indulgence, this special time of year and know that soon, with January pending, you have the opportunity, supported by the earth, the season and the appropriate moment to detox and cleanse and clear.
We wish you a MERRY, joyful, Christmas time and a healthy, happy, inspiring and whole-somely wealthy New Year!
