Self-Care: Christmas Traditions!

Self-Care: Christmas Traditions!

The holiday season is upon us and I am taking time to admire my Christmas Tree! I love this time of year – the hustle and bustle. Magic and high vibrational energy permeate the air. 

I enjoy listening to Christmas carols while I admire the sparking lights and colourful ornaments dangling from my tree. This is one of my favourites glass Christmas bulbs which was handmade and painted by a Polish artist, in Poland. It has been in my family for over 50 years and it brings back simpler times. I remember the anticipation of Santa’s ultimate visit. We were not rich, so we had very few presents nestled under the tree come Christmas morning. However, I relish lots of nostalgic memories of my mother baking Polish cookies, cheesecakes, and babkas!

Feeling sentimental during the holidays is normal, but quite challenging for many, especially those who live alone. Sadly, this year, many are faced with isolation, travel restrictions, and unable to see their loved ones. A heartfelt phone call or text can do wonders for uplifting someone’s spirit. I hope you are all blessed with people whom you can reach out to share a story about Christmas joys.

As the 2021 holiday spirit swirls around us, and sadly my parents are no longer here to celebrate with me, I take this opportunity to make a wish that we all find peace, love, and health during these challenging times.

Do you have a favourite ornament, Christmas story, or holiday cookie recipe to share?
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
With love, grace, and many blessings,
Your Guiding Luminary
