Boost Your Post-Holiday Spirit

SpiritRestoreWhatever holidays you celebrate you may feel physically, mentally, or emotionally drained after them. Even if you harmonized with your fingers as I described last week, holidays inherently disrupt your normal daily rhythm. If you traveled, you may have jet lag. If you spent time with difficult people, you may feel frustrated or angry. Even if you experienced harmonious and wonderful holidays, you may grieve separating from your dear ones once the holidays end. Holidays offer many ways to feel “hung over.”

If holidays challenge you, it may help to investigate your life from a soul point of view. The Akashic Records, a repository of soul-level information, can clarify what soul themes, lessons, and commitments you made in this lifetime and others. Every life experience represents a soul opportunity. Recently I watched a Brené Brown Super Soul Sunday episode where she recommended asking three questions: “What do I need to learn and understand about the situation? What do I need to learn and understand about others? What do I need to learn and understand about myself?” Asking these in the records supports soul level learning and understanding. As always, it helps to ask how difficult experiences and/or relationships can possibly be good for you. For worse and better, a holiday often magnifies underlying themes and challenges.

After a holiday you may need to regroup, refocus, and restore yourself. Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ), a Japanese form of acupressure, harmonizes body, mind, and spirit. Some of the spiritual JSJ self-helps include Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 4 which lets in breath, light, life, and connection to the Creator, SEL 13 for spirituality, SEL 17 for intuition, and SEL 12 for “not my will, but thy will.” SEL 15 helps to integrate the shadow, 20 bridges the personal to the universal, and 23 helps with transformation and knowing your own destiny.

Do holidays energize or deplete you? How do you manage your re-entry into daily life following a holiday?

Best wishes for a harmonious and happy New Year!


  1. Hi Christy, Thanks for another excellent post. I spent many years traveling to Northern Ontario during the holidays. Not always pleasant! Now, I spend at most one hour traveling to visit family and friends…definitely less stressful. Best wishes for 2016. Joanne 🙂


  2. Hi Christy,
    Thanks for this post. As much as I enjoy the holidays, the demands I put on myself are exhausting. Tradition is a double edged sword. Now, I need to refocus – regroup -restore:) I did enjoy a wonderful massage yesterday.
    Best to you in the New Year. Lucille


    • Hi Lucille,
      You’re welcome and thank you for your interest and comment. Ah yes, another major source of holiday stress – tradition! So glad to hear you received a wonderful massage. Maybe a post-holiday massage could become a tradition as well? Best wishes for a wonderful 2016!
      Warm regards,


  3. Although I haven’t practiced any of the SELs, the idea of SEL 4, as described by you, really ‘speaks to me’. The rest do too (particularly SEL 12 and 13), but SEL 4 is ‘resonating’.

    Thanks for sharing your work, Christy,


    • Hi Kumud,
      I love the fact SEL 4 resonates. It is known as the “master key” for harmonizing spirit and is the flow recommended if someone is in a coma or in the final stages of life.

      You’re welcome. Thanks for reading, commenting, and sharing on Twitter!

      Namaste and Happy 2016,
