So There's That: Healing Through The Holidays

If you are one of the many people who have bittersweet feelings or emotions during the holidays, I hope this blog will be of some help to you as we embark on yet another holiday season.

During the holiday season, I speak with hundreds of people. Whether it be through personal readings, enrichment courses or casual conversations, and a good portion of clients this holiday season seem to be sharing in with the bittersweet stages of the holiday season for quite a few different and very valid reasons.

2010 was a very, very hard and difficult year for so many people. Money that was readily available for gifts and holiday travels last year and the year before isnt that plentiful for quite a few people this year, so there's that. Alot of people are also very concerned about their livelihood in 2011, so there's that. Let's not forget the many of us who have lost someone very important to us during the holiday season and those emotions and feelings are ever strong and powerful especially during this time of year, so there's that.

Many of us have lost people who we held very dear to our hearts and moving forward with life when God calls one of our loved ones Home is never easy. But as we all know from experience, life does go on, we move forward because we don't have a choice in the matter. When we do move forward, we often feel alot more freedom during the healing process, and new emotions of courage and strength surrounds our Spirit. This is a time when our Guides & Angels are doing all they can to make sure we keeping on the same page and not veering off our charted life plan and delaying or shelving our the real reasons why we are here: our life mission and purpose. If you've lost a loved one and are feeling the loss especially hard during this time of year, the biggest healer can often be to just get out of the house and go do something, whether it be volunteering at a reputable charitable organization (check out if you need a jump start to finding some worthy charitable organizations who are paving the road for healthier futures for all of us), going to a library to help a child learn how to read, or going out for a holiday meal with a friend -- regardless, sometimes just getting out of the house can be the biggest way to let go and enchance the healing process through the holiday season.

2010 was a very uneasy year, but 2011 will be better in some ways. We all have to realize that the recession that we are all currently experiencing didnt happen overnight, and it's not going to leave overnight either. We all need to stick together and allow it to run it's course, and things will improve. Sometimes gradually, other times gruelingly slow, but improvement will be shown on a variety of levels in 2011. We must all remain positive and hopeful as this will help the universal energies that surround all of us to be more precise and helpful during the process.

While there are countless ways why one may feel depressed this time of year, there are also plenty of hearty ways to understand just how blessed you really are. Together as a big spiritual family, we are given so much direction and guidance not only from our Guides & Angels, but from the very people who love us the most. This also tends to be a time of year where families bury the hatchet and start over from a clean slate. Understand that many problems that one may have with other family members often comes from love, not hate. Repair what you can, and move forward without looking back. With as many blessings as we all have in our lives, 'tis the season for remembering them all and reciting them or writing them down to read whenever you may feel upset or indifferent about the season.

God, your Guides & Angels and so many people in your life truly love you for all that you are. If you are going through changes, don't hide them -- share them with your family and friends. In doing so, this can prevent further or future confusion which can lead to arguments and painful family silence that is both damaging and haunting. You are loved by so many, whether you feel it or not, it's the truth.

Love yourself with the love that you freely give others. Let some of that love reach the inner depths of your heart as it brightens your soul and radiates throughout your Spirit.

Sending you many blessings this holiday season,


PS. See you in the New Year!
