Happy Holidays!


This is a very special time of year where people of all faith traditions around the globe gather for festivals, special rituals and ceremonies, to honor what is most sacred to them.


What is most sacred to you?  For me it is awakening to my spiritual brilliance – my divinity – the light within me.  To the awareness of my oneness with all there is – our unity and how truly precious, wonderful, and abundant life is.  To the realization that I have a power within me that I can use to co-create a beautiful life, experience deep peace and joy, and make a positive difference in the world.

This Sunday I will be sharing more about awakening to Christ Consciousness and how the ancient mystics and teachers seem to share similar experiences of elevated awareness and understanding of Truth.

Whatever may be your favorite festival of this Holy Day season: Christmas, Hanukkah, Hajj, Diwali, Bodhi Day or some other, I know that this Holy Day season blesses you all.


Affirmations:


Love-Light is ignited by grace in my heart and thoughtsI shine and share my Love-Light with everybody I meetI am lighting up the world!

The nights are getting longer and longer and the days shorter and shorter, but light is on the horizon!  The Winter Solstice is just around the corner and this marks the time when the sun appears to stand still in the sky and the nights begin to grow sorter and the days longer as the sun makes it return.

During this time of year there are so many lights – lights decorating houses and Christmas trees, candle lighting services, carols and songs about following stars and light…  I am reminded of the light that each of us carry in our heart and mind.  The Buddha said, “Be a light unto yourself.”

My message for you this week is to remember that you are love, loved, lovable, and worthy of a beautiful life.  So, shine and share your love light with everyone you meet, it’s a gift that keeps on giving!

Affirmations:


I am a light unto myself.I light up my life with self-love and appreciation.I shine and share my light with the world!

Tis’ the season to be jolly, really!?  The most wonderful time of the year?  For many this is true.  But for some, this time of year can bring extra stress with all the added pressures society bombards us with.  Buying presents, parties, over eating, travel, family obligations and expectations, etc., all of this can cause worry and anxiety.

Here, from the Mayo Clinic, are 10 suggestions for managing holiday stress:

1. Acknowledge your feelings.
2. Reach out.
3. Be realistic.
4. Set aside differences.
5. Stick to a budget.
6. Plan ahead.
7. Learn to say no.
8. Don’t abandon healthy habits.
9. Take a breather.
10. Seek profession help if you need it.

Please remember that we have a team of licensed professional Spiritual Living Practitioners always available to support you through life’s ups and downs.  And remember to breathe and know that right where you are God is.
