Making the Season Personal

This is the time of year that can be most amazing and fun, or difficult for individuals with a history of sad memories. Personally, I have had several tragedies hit right at or around the Holiday season.

When I was in my 20’s, the house in which I resided burned down, due to Christmas lights in the attic. I was at a party that night and almost lost my dog, Salty, but luckily a kind neighbor let him out while the firetrucks were spraying water on the fires. However, the following year Salty died of cancer, just after New Year’s Day.

Many winters passed with ups and downs until I found my life in danger by a crazy stalker. He was breaking into my house, and threatening my neighborhood. I had to contact law enforcement and the FBI, dealing with a whole new world of intrigue and espionage.

The next great tragedy was when my Mother transitioned, in Dec. 2010. My brother, sister and I spent that month grieving and sorting out her belongings.

The year after was hard as well, as I was nursing another beloved pet dog, Shevah, during an illness of seizures until I finally let her go back to Heaven.

Now with all the hurtful times, I still make holiday seasons personally spiritual by remembering to create precious moments. There were lots of potluck parties, genuinely good people and laughter. Lighting candles, sending prayers up to anyone that needs it, and appreciating the gifts that are all around us, created by God.

Making your holiday season work can be a creative process. If you release expectations of how Christmas should look, or how Hanukah is not celebrated enough, or how you are separated by distance from family and friends, or how you may be experiencing pain, you can open up a space in your heart and mind to receive a new way to be.

Stay open to small miracles, to messages that may come along, to making a new friend just when you least expect it. Pain can be transformed into an opportunity for learning about healing and patience. Loneliness can be transformed into a calling to be closer to your Angels, Guides and further Spiritual Awakening.

Gifts we might enjoy all year long, and all our lives can arrive at this time. Many blessings to you and your loved ones during this time. Let it shine.

Natural Remedies to Handle Stress

Natural Health Remedies to Cope with Stress

During the holiday season many people will feel their stress building and  find little time to relax. In order to deal effectively with oncoming pressures, emotional, social and family engagements, I have listed some things you can try on your down time.

Supplements and Exercises:

*Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamins D and B12 to calm the nerves and muscles.

*Potassium, Chromium and Ginseng to keep the energy up.

*Eat fruits and drink plenty of fluids to keep the energy flowing.

*More protein helps to restore tissues.

*Valerian, Chamomile and Kava herbs to help with relaxation.

*Melatonin is a stronger supplement to add naturally for sleep.

*Soak in a sea salt bath, or other relaxing bath water. Let the water absorb the extra energy from your cells.

*Lather on the lotion, skin and hair will get dry. Oils made from almonds, grapeseed, coconut and safflower last longer than commercial products.

*Deep breathing during anxiety attacks and depression helps to oxygenate the body.

*Meditate often to remember, THIS IS NOT ALL THAT YOU ARE. You are a Spiritual Being having a material experience.

*Get together with other people, stay in contact with friends, have fun when you can to keep your personality healthy. During the holidays, isolation can really get you down.

*Find ways to appreciate the life you have, watch sunsets and take time to do the things you love.  -Su

the Spirit of Life after Death

If you have ever lost someone close, you know how painful the experience is and how long it takes to resolve the feelings of loss. 

Our family losses are the hardest, especially around the holidays. Last year our Mother passed away 3 days before Christmas.

 As the months creeped by I have come to accept her loving presence as One with the Great Ones beyond our present comprehension. 

She holds us the same way now, as They do, when we are sick, or in danger, or need reassurance that there truly is Life beyond death.

Sometimes it’s hard to sense because their touches are so much softer than before,  against the din of traffic, shops, technology and all the distractions of daily life. 

So I want to share in my holiday message this year, that I have come to understand even more than before, that their lives, in the non-physical, are  

 SO MUCH GREATER THAT THIS.

One day we will all be together in the Ocean of Light that is waiting for us on the  other side.

May you take comfort and trust that it will be.

Happy Holiday however you choose to worship.
