The Secret to Enjoying this Holiday Season

I would like to share a message of self-empowerment and healing for those of us who are struggling through the holidays.

Life goes on whether it is the holiday season or not. This means that the same problems exist no matter what the calendar may say: health problems, financial problems, family issues, situations at work, and even issues that come up specifically around the holidays, including painful memories. How can we find peace and joy and goodwill for everyone when all of this is going on???

The secret to enjoying the holidays (or any other time, for that matter) is to live in the present moment. This is the best “present” you can give yourself and others. Many of us have heard that we should “live in the present moment” or “be here now”, but what does that really mean and how do we do it? It sounds simple enough, but it’s hard for me to do it, you may say.

The key to living in the Present is to heal your old pain so that you are free to be present in the Now. We unknowingly spend most of our time living in another time zone. This includes being in the past when some painful event or loss occurred, or thinking of the future and what it will be like if you continue to be alone. Both of these scenarios catapult us into another time zone and into a place of pain.

Healing old pain with the QT trauma code is a perfect place to start. Once the old pain or painful futuristic thoughts are no longer calling your name, the next step is to find something to focus on that you are grateful for, in this very moment, Now: a song, the sunshine, a pet, a card in your mailbox, something that feels soft and warm, the taste of something delicious, the smile of a friend or stranger, the smell of pine boughs, etc. Choosing gratitude ends all suffering immediately. Where you focus your attention will determine your level of happiness today. This sounds so simple, yet is so profound.

In this very moment, you are connected to something Higher than that which you can see. This is a Spirit of Creation and Light that holds only Love for you and is always at work FOR you, never against you. The Divine can only be met in this present moment. You won’t find God in thoughts of yesterday or forecasts into the future.

All of this is not to say that negative emotions and negative states will suddenly cease. Negative emotions will come…allow them to move through like a storm passes. If they are stuck, go back and use the trauma code as a tool to help the emotions pass more quickly. Your imagination may start to tell you that the holidays are NOT the way they should be this year; things should be different than this. Remember, that you are not your thoughts nor imagination and these thoughts cannot grab you without your consent. Choose to become aware and intentionally focus your thoughts on something you are grateful for at this moment. All suffering ends with this simple exercise.

Your life is part of a grand design that is always FOR you. You are never alone. Invite yourself to the present moment and experience how good life can be again.

Wishing you love, peace, and freedom during this holiday season.
