Things You Can Do to Thrive During the Holidays


“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” 

-Mahatma Gandhi 

Thursday is Thanksgiving, and I am amazed at how quickly this year has gone by… I wanted to pass on some tips to help you move through the Holidays with wonderment and joy. (If you need them.) I will be posting some tips over the next couple of weeks.

 Change your story. 

The Holidays can be a stressful and somewhat depressing time for some of us. That was certainly the case for me in my 20s and 30s. I had yet to discover the tools to heal myself. As part of my journey, I sought out people I could study with to help shed unproductive habits that caused me pain.  I began to raise my vibration when I changed my story and gained a different perspective on specific events. I began to look at myself as a whole person, not just pieces in a pie tin. Here are some changes I made to become more authentic and holistic.

 Steps to change your story:

A million little events and situations can shape how you feel about the Holidays, both good and bad. The good news is that you can change your story.  

Slowing down enough to hear what old programs are playing in your head is the first step in changing them. 

 Stop replaying painful memories; it creates habits that are difficult to break. Your subconscious doesn’t know the difference between a memory and a real-time experience. Learn Energy Psychology techniques to help you break unwanted habits that prevent you from feeling joy, like BSFF or EFT.

 Tell yourself the truth- this is hard at first. My aha moment was when I discovered that my narrative about a situation had taken on a life of its own, which wasn’t true! I was both shocked and amused. To make matters worse, I had been acting on that bad information. If that sounds familiar, then thank goodness I am not alone. Once I started to pay attention to the stuff rattling around in my head, I started changing my thoughts by stating, “that’s not true,” and then replacing it with something that actually was true. You get the idea.

 Stop complaining- You lose energy when you complain.  Change what you can and accept what you can’t. The serenity prayer is simple but not easy.

If complaining has become a habit, start to acknowledge your achievements within yourself.

Complaining depletes your vital life force as well as everyone around you.

I always walk away from the complainer, feeling sad.

I hope that you get to experience the wonderment that the Holiday Season has to offer.

Always with love.
