Before you read any further, I want you to take a moment just to breathe.
Before rushing to the next thing on your to-do list, take a moment to simply be in the present and allow yourself the time and space to process what you're experiencing.
You're most likely running around doing everything for everybody else and having little time for yourself.
Even if a lot of that running around is celebrating and socializing, you still need time to yourself.
Holiday times, no matter how you choose to celebrate or not celebrate them, brings up a lot of your "stuff".
So much is expected of you. And, of course, there are the expectations you place on yourself because the world tells you how you should or should not feel.
And there's usually a disconnect between what we expect to feel and what is actually happening inside of us.
This gap between expectation and reality pushes all our buttons. And all of a sudden, the hurts and pressures we felt when we were twelve years old get triggered.
And there are so many demands on us we feel we're letting ourselves or other people down if we take a moment to process, or not put on a cheery face. Do you see the spiral there?
Now, there is a LOT more to it. I've been deep into writing my 2023 Celestial Guide and tuning into next year's energy. I can tell you that everything we've experienced since 2020 has been preparing us for next year.
Yes, we're talking next level soul-searching. You MUST listen to your heart and let go of what is not truly nourishing you.
Start this process now. You'll be so happy you're staying true to yourself.
In the meantime, please take care of yourself. Do something lovely for just YOU and make sure to give yourself a hug.
