Less Psychic Stress as a Gift for the Holidays

Less Psychic Stress as a Gift for the Holidays

At a time when folks could be laying back to enjoy the coming Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year’s season, most of what I find is people who are stressed--and they probably don't need a psychic reading to let them know they are stressed!

Where is preparing the heart to welcome relatives and friends? Where has the season of joy gone that presages new beginnings of the coming year?

Perhaps we need to be in receiver mode like when we were young and we weren’t responsible for making the lists and checking them twice.

Here are some things I am keeping in mind to help me be not only sane, but happy during these holidays:

I feel good about myself when I include exercise, prayer/meditation and nutritious food each day. My body loves me for this self-discipline and my self-worth meter scores big time for these activities.

When I keep present in the moment I am not worrying about all the lists that follow the one I am focusing on today. Sometimes I restrict myself to simply watching what I am doing in order to bring myself back to present moment.

It’s easy for me to think of others’ needs; I do even better when I think of my own needs. There is a little girl inside of me that needs attention too.

As I mentioned before, my own happiness is very important. It is also contagious—when I am happy, those around me are affected in a positive way.

Less stress and more play is the order of my day. How about you?

Is It Real or Is It My Ego? Psychic Experience

Here’s my view of psychic inner transformation:

Many times in the course of everyday life I choose to give up ego and instead go with intuition. This turning inward to listen to spirit has become my way of life.

I can usually tell when I am out of balance—something hurts! Most of the time it starts as a belief, goes into a thought, becomes an emotion—and then I have to deal with it.

Feelings can settle in my body as a heaviness. The heaviness is so obvious that until I can release it, I am constantly aware of it.

Perhaps it is an old belief that causes the thought that causes the emotion and then settles in my body. That old belief is the thing that needs to be examined. My self-examination is like bringing light to the darkness, like bringing oxygen to a place that can’t freely breathe.

I have become accustom to giving up old psychic patterns, but it still takes intentional effort to open and then to clear.

I’d like to think that this experience that I have so frequently is familiar territory to many of us, but I don’t know until I share my process.
