2016 The Beginning is Near

2016 The Beginning is Near!

2016 The Beginning is Near“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance. The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”~Arnold Bennett

In a few short days we’ll be completing another chapter of our very own, up close and personal, book of life. How was the chapter? Did you enjoy the writing? Good, bad or indifferent this chapter is about to end and the beginning of a new one is near!

It’s time to review, reflect, forgive, release then take time to dream and create a foundation for the year to come. As you review your year, collect up and call back any energy you left behind.

There may be energy caught up in unanswered questions, plans that didn’t come to fruition, mistakes, or even happy times we “never want to forget”. Don’t worry! Calling back your energy from those happy times doesn’t mean you’ll forget. It means you’ll have all that joyful, enthusiasm back to create more happy times!

The beauty of 365 days made up of 8760 hours, 525,600 minutes is we have ample time to create, live, love and learn. At this point in the year it doesn’t matter if we achieved our goals or not. Whatever happened or didn’t happen in 2015 it was written and now it’s done.

This morning I woke up to a horoscope that said “if “Plan A” doesn’t work, there are twenty-five more letters in the alphabet.”. I love that on so many levels! Sometimes we become really stuck if “plan A” doesn’t work out. It’s time to let go of any “plan A’s” from 2015 and begin creating what we want for 2016 using the entire alphabet!

“The key to a better life isn’t always a change of scenery. Sometimes it simply requires opening your eyes.” ~Richelle E. Goodrich

As awakening souls it’s best to remember we don’t necessarily have to re-invent the wheel, so to speak. Sometimes we just need to open our hearts and minds to a new way. All too often we become rigid in our thinking. When we decide in advance something will or won’t work, or, we think it will fail or we might make a mistake, our dream is quashed before we’ve even started.

Open your heart and mind. Bring back your enthusiasm! Connect with courage and create your 2016 complete with everything you want! Write down a list, it doesn’t matter how long, of what would you like to see manifest 2016. Instead of lamenting about 2015, dream of 2016! The beginning is near!

“The best endings are the ones that lead to new beginnings.”~Mathangi Subramanian

Whether 2015 was a challenging year or an exciting year, the best ending you can possibly have is to look back and congratulate yourself for all the good things that happened. All too often we focus on the negative and minimize the positive. Time to review, reflect, forgive, release and CREATE! It’s a new year featuring YOU. It’s a new year featuring your dreams, and new opportunities. HAPPY ALMOST NEW YEAR! How exciting! The beginning is near!~Shine Your Light Debbie

6 Ways to Beat the Holiday Blues!

HolidayIf you’re stressed out or singing the holiday blues these days you are not alone.

This time of year it’s common for people to feel lonely, isolated, stressed out or sad.

Here are 6 ways to shift the holiday blues so you can experience the season with JOY!

1. Disconnect

Social media is a wonderful place to connect but the fact is, not everything you see is real. I call it “the face of Facebook”. Everyone is ‘blessed’, ‘grateful’, having an amazing time, happy and joyful. Of course that’s true for some but everyone is human, has challenges, bad days and situations they don’t share. On the flip side there are rants, judgement, anger and downright nastiness. Although we think we are “connected” we are, in fact, disconnected from ourselves. Disconnect from the illusions and the energy on social media that may be affecting you more than you account for and re-connect with yourself.

2. Meditate

Take 5 or 10 minutes (at the very least) to simply breathe, feel your connection with the earth and your energy flow. Check in with yourself. Reconnect with YOU. Daily meditation during the holidays has a cumulative effect. The more you find time to meditate, the smoother your day will be. You could even take it one step farther and actually set the energy of the holidays for yourself. While in meditation, decide what energy vibration you’d like to experience for a particular day and “set” that day. In fact, try doing it today! Set the energy you’d like to experience for today and see what happens. Call it a practice day and we all know, practice makes perfect.

3. Manage Expectations

There is a lot of pressure during the holiday season. We are expected to find the perfect gift, act a certain way, be somewhere on time, be nice etc. There are a plethora of expectations we are supposed to meet and those expectations from others (and the expectations we have for ourselves) put more pressure on us. How you choose to take part in the holidays is totally up to you. To manage expectations check in with yourself and see what YOU need. If you find yourself responding, going to every party, caving to peer pressure to eat drink and be merry when you don’t feel like it, check in with yourself and just notice if you’re answering to the expectations of others or putting undo pressure on yourself with your own expectations.

4. Release the Ghosts of Holidays Past

The holidays can be a challenging, sad and lonely time of year often times because of holidays past. It is inevitable we will be missing a loved one, stressed out by something that happened and remembering fondly, or not so fondly, holidays long past. When holiday memories come up, acknowledge and embrace them. Notice the feeling that accompanies the memory and acknowledge that too. Once you’ve acknowledged the memory allow it to be released. Release the ghosts of holidays past so you are free and have access to all your energy to create beautiful holiday magic in the present.

5. Let Family be Family

Even the happiest of families has its moments. Someone, whether consciously or unconsciously, might invalidate you, compete with you, boss you around or simply push your buttons. Take a breath and find some neutrality. If things get ugly, meet the situation by taking a deep breath, checking in with yourself and remembering they are engaging you because of their own “stuff”. You don’t need to challenge, fight with, prove yourself or engage them. Your neutrality is you taking the “high road” and helps to defuse the situation. You know that saying “peace on earth, good will towards men”? Why not extend a little of that towards family?

6. Find your Magic and JOY!

Connect with your own unique (and powerful) vibrations of magic and joy. Allow the magic and joy to flow through you. Create magical connections and situations. Don’t simply respond to an invitation, do those things that bring YOU joy and are not simply obligations to family and friends. There is a magical, beautiful world out there filled with joy. Allow yours to flow and surround yourself with it.

During the stressful holiday season reconnect with YOU. Take time to breathe. Manage expectations. Allow others to be where they are. Release the ghosts that haunt you. Connect with those you love who may or may not be family and plan a little holiday magic! Sometimes all it takes is to get up close and personal with yourself and others. Cheers to JOY and Magic!~Shine Your Light Debbie
