That Christmas Feeling

Pexels.com

With Christmas right around the corner, only 5 days and counting away, I have been reflecting on the way I feel this Holiday Season. 

This Christmas I feel content. Beyond content. I have four amazing children and an incredible husband, and I have all I could ever ask for. My family is all I have ever wanted. As a child, I grew up in a severely abusive household and suffered major trauma. Trauma, that I have had the pleasure of working to heal, and, grow me into a better person. 

Growing up, the holidays were a once a year escape from the torture that was my life. I was able to live in the magic of Christmas, surround myself in Christmas cheer, and insulate myself in the good tidings and well wishes of the season. I lived most of my life, from Christmas to Christmas.

In the present, I live for each intoxicating moment of the organized chaos that is life with children. I have a supportive husband, who’s love for me I can feel in the beat of my heart, and I know that his heartbeat mirrors mine. While reflecting on how I feel this Christmas, I realized I don’t feel differently than I do most days out the year, though this time of year is incredibly special.

 I don’t feel differently because each day of my life is filled with love, good cheer, family, intimacy, support, miracles and magic. I no longer live from Christmas to Christmas, because I live Christmas every day of the year, and that is a gift that is absolutely priceless. 

Hindsight is 20/20 : Living and Learning Life’s Lessons

How do we know the roads to take, if we have never travelled them before? The words in the phrase ‘Hindsight is 20/20’ embodies the crux of the human experience. It takes into consideration that once we begin our lives here on Earth as infants, we are starting fresh. Inherent knowledge that is within us, will be revealed throughout the course of our lives, but no one has access to a personal handbook or manual for life’s trials and tribulations, for heartbreak and pain, and for accepting and relishing the good times and expressing gratitude. These are all lessons we learn, not by sitting in a classroom, but through experience, which is the greatest teacher of all.

To learn the lessons that our soul craves, the very lessons that we signed up for before our physical bodies were formed, we must be involved in situations where the lesson is learned. These lessons are taught everyday within our lives. We can learn so much from the reactions that we have to minor disturbances that disrupts our everyday calm, and also to earth shattering events, from which our lives are changed forever. 

Until we experience these lessons by living them out, we will not know what the right path is for us. Until we experience the effects that a negative reaction can have on those close to us, we will not know that the positive reaction is the one that is most beneficial. Trial and error. That is the song of life. This is nothing to be ashamed of and should be embraced wholeheartedly, because from these trials and errors, comes invaluable knowledge that will be needed along our soul path.

When you come out to your car to find the battery is dead and you must wait for a jump, you are being taught patience. When confronted with a situation where you have to share your feelings on another’s actions, you learn that all truth can be communicated in love. In communicating through tough issues where disagreements can occur, you realize that reciprocity and mutuality is important, as all people have thoughts, feelings and perspectives that should be respected and acknowledged, even if they are not agreed upon. Receiving an incorrect order at a restaurant can turn into a lesson in letting go, and an opportunity to demonstrate kindness. It is one thing to read about love and a whole other thing to receive and give love in action. 

The list goes on and on and most of these lessons aren’t even realized until one is looking over the situation in hindsight. When reviewing your life for lessons to be learned, do not count out hindsight to reveal the lessons that may have first appeared to be hidden. 


Let the Dead Leaves Drop: Autumnal Musings and Affirmations

“Be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop” – Rumi

With the arrival of the Autumnal season, the above quote from Rumi has been dancing in my head. Watching the seasons change and the leaves on the trees slowly evolve from green, to reddish golds, has put me in a contemplative mood of self discovery. Autumn is the perfect time to take stock of who you are and the things that you carry with you, from thought processes, defense mechanisms, habits and all sorts of other things, that may no longer serve you, and begin the process of acknowledging the lessons learned and releasing these old ways to the universe. 
What dead leaves are you carrying, that you would benefit from letting go of?  Oftentimes we don’t realize when certain leaves have died and no longer serve us in our journey. Our fear, anger, aggression and other negative emotions, may have served us during times when we felt that we needed additional emotional protection, but now are blocking us from receiving the love and positivity that we so deeply desire and crave.

Autumn is the perfect time of release, so the seeds of our desires can be planted and nourished with intention through the Winter, and bloom in the Spring. Autumn is an excellent time to make the conscious effort to take stock of our true desires, and ensure that what we desire inwardly is being reflected outwardly.

Autumn Affirmations:
I reflect my inward light on to all those I come in contact with 
I release that which no longer serves me 
I welcome love and light into my heart
I am the change I want to see in the world 
I make room in my heart for love 
I make room in my heart for joy

I open my arms to receive my present blessings 
I send love and light to myself and to others
