Whatever 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!
