I hope this post finds you feeling refreshed after the Thanksgiving holiday so you can welcome the remaining opportunities 2021 brings to you!
As I’m becoming more mature, I’ve become better at honoring my body’s increased need for a slower pace. Therefore, I start big projects earlier so I can include the rest times I now require.
What have you learned about how to best navigate the holidays for yourself?
Here’s my holiday tiny story:
OLD STORY: As she had for years, she raced around completing the unending list of last-minute things that had to be done for her business – saying yes to everything that clamored for her attention. Already tired, she got up early to clean, polish, vacuum, and decorate. Then she grocery shopped for all the holiday delicacies and got up early again to cook everything and carve the turkey. By the time everyone arrived on the big day – she was hot and exhausted. Her back felt like it would break. She fervently wished everyone would just go away so she could shut her bedroom door and lay down for the afternoon. The remainder of the time before she went back to work slid by in a blur.
NEW STORY: Months before the holiday, she created extra space in her calendar – even more time than she thought she would require – and gifted herself with some downtime afterwards. Instead of creating an Akashic “Black Friday” special and responding to all the inquires it would produce, she energetically blessed her clients and students while enjoying her holiday preparations. Resolutely, she ignored the tsunami of “must have” discounted spiritual marketing emails that continually poured into her inbox. Thanksgiving Day she welcomed her family and friends to her sparkling home with gratitude and joy. They all sat down together to enjoy the beautiful dinner they’d helped prepare. She felt grateful that everyone was healthy and life was good. After her last guests said their goodbyes on Saturday, she enjoyed putting her home back in order and had some lovely quiet time. The result – she truly enjoyed all aspects of the holiday, and happily returned to work – refreshed and filled with magical memories.
If you too would like to create a special ceremony to celebrate the upcoming end of this year, you might be inspired by this recent CNN op-ed article. I thank the author, Joshua M. Davidson, for sharing his ideas for a non-traditional celebration of Hanukkah He’s given me some bright ideas for a very relevant new way to celebrate the end of 2021.
Brought up Catholic, I grew up with a love of ceremony. These days to mark special occasions, I enjoy accessing my Akashic Records, draping myself in a beautiful scarf, lighting candles, burning my favorite incense, and co-creating my own heart-felt prayers with my Records. These are some of the elements I bring into the Akashic ceremonies I now create that bring me closer to the Divine and the world I am choosing to create. The result? Each year I experience greater inner peace – regardless of what’s happening around me.
How are you planning to celebrate the end of another challenging year? Since it can be hard to shift gears and welcome the different energies of a new year, I’d love to hear your ideas in the comments field below!
If you’ve never had an in-depth Akashic Session, would this be the time to reach out to one of the many professional facilitators now available? Or is it perhaps time now to learn how to tap into your Akashic Records or dive deeper to learn to access the Records of Others?
My life work now is teaching the three tiers of Akashic Records Trainings brought through by the Akashic AllianceTM. I invite you to consider if the Records have an important role to play in your continuing transformation. New Modules A and B Zoom trainings will be announced for early 2022. I’d love to have you join us and travel the Akashic Way!
