Hi Everyone: I apologize for the delayed post.
Hopefully by now you’ve had some time to care for
yourself. It is the holiday season and my family has
been fighting the flu, performing in Christmas festivities,
decking the halls, shopping, wrapping…Even, through all
of this I am trying to remind myself to stop, assess the
situation…”am I dehydrated?-“O.K.-“have a drink of
water”…”when was the last time I ate?”-“O.K.-grab
something healthy, or stop to make a healthy meal for
me and the family.”…”there is that pain in the chest-uh oh!”-
“Slow down, do some Reiki…Breathe…”
“Keep the shades on while walking through the crowds.”
But the most common question I ask myself is-
“Is this something that has to be done right now?”
The answer is always the same. “Not really.”
Since it’s the Holiday Season, my Spiritual Ideas will be centered on
Getting into the Holiday Spirit.
Instead of jumping out of bed this morning-open your eyes and
breathe deeply…think of ten things that you are grateful for today.
Here is this morning’s meditation.
Meditation and Health-Youtube-“Morning Meditation with the Angels”
Stream of Conscious Writing Exercise: Free-write for 20 minutes
about the most memorable holiday moment in your life. Now
try and imagine how you can re-create that moment this holiday
For your thirty minutes of physical activity-Go Toboganning…
and if you no longer have a toboggan-a piece of cardboard works
Holiday Recipe: My friend came over with her kids and we made
these gingerbread cookies-more got eaten than decorated… The
house smelt delicious and we listened to Christmas tunes as well.

A phenomenal and moving holiday movie is “Love Actually”. Snuggle
up with a loved one, friend or pet, snarf down some of those cookies,
apple cider, hot chocolate and don’t forget the kleenex-it is a tear-jerker.
Here is a link to the trailer-it is available on Netflix:
