It's Christmas Eve and my day feels and looks quite a bit like this photo...
Like many of us, I have had very full days since late October/early November and after the Solstice, I shifted into days with no readings, or events, and a lot less time writing/and online.
In this life, for me, Christmas-time has always been about connection--within and with others and nature, energy, the vastness of being. I knew this long ago as there were different ways of spending time during these holidays--some of it about silence and light, other moments nourishing with delicious special meals and sharing with others and always, time being outdoors, enjoying nature and relaxing. There has typically been lots of music and singing, and silliness. Kids running through the house, dogs barking and laughter. I had very abundant, fun holidays as a kid, and spent these times with a large group of people, everyone doing their own thing, together sometimes, alone enjoying ourselves or napping when we wished, and so generally have enjoyed the playfulness and ease of the time, while also feeling the deeper opening available.
This year, I am pretty low key. I did almost no shopping (and this happened totally organically! how amazing is that...). I also reassured people I was in need of nothing, so I gave others permission to not feel the pressure of shopping/spending money. My body is welcoming the sunny cool days and lots of leisure after a full couple of months of readings, teaching and writing/channeling. I am entirely unscheduled for today and tomorrow! And so...I approach this whole weekend free, available, light and happy.
I am tired, so instead of cooking a lot, I am eating light--my regular foods-- rather then rich special things, and today scuffing around at almost noon, still in my PJ's! I even had a nap already today after waking up early, reading a bit, and just sitting doing nothing...soaking up/in the energy.
I suspect I'll be sharing food and dog walks, movies and conversation with family/friends, and yet there is no real agenda. For me what is MOST different this year is that it feels like a regular day! I have no expectations and no needs. I am just present. I am my own present!
Divine light flows within us all the time, not just now!
Increasingly we not just know this, we feel it.
This holiday my only intention is to extend these blessings to everyone and everything.
I intend and be aware that as I AM I contribute to the whole that is, and in giving to myself rest and peace, nourishment and joy, ease and happiness, connection and harmonious ways of being and a pace fitting for my own state right here right now, I bring everything that is, into greater harmony and peace. And so, I will be experiencing this holiday and entering the new year, In-joy. And wishing for this to flow in abundance to all. I release this intention into the crystalline grid, letting it flow to all, and knowing that the Earth and the planetary energies amplify all that enters this collective flow.
I feel happy. Like I do on most days, and this is how I intend to experience each day of this beautiful life on this beautiful planet with ALL OF YOU Beautiful Beings of Love and Light.
Joy to the world! I open my heart to imagine and trust I will see more and more people opening to their own light...knowing happiness, abundance, well-being and joy.
I conjure up the possibility that life can change faster and more remarkbly then I am even capable of dreaming. I realize what is coming forth is more fabulous then I can even imagine and I choose to pay attention to all signs and experiences that demonstrate this, thus being part of this tide of the new creation.
Dear One, beautiful soul, precious presence of divine light and love; may all your days be merry and bright! and may all beings experience wonder and happiness.
