Many of us enjoy the holiday season. We picture good times from the past, we make a point to connect with ones dear to us, we bask in sending and receiving love: greetings, gifts, baking, singing and more. We expect to have fun and we do.
Well for Heaven’s Sake, we could expect to have a wonderful experience in January too and put focus on expecting an enjoyable time. We could start to feel good right now in anticipation of it. Ahhh.
What We Hold in Our Minds Matters
On Dec 21 this planet experienced some unusual astronomical conditions. The planets of Jupiter and Saturn conjoined and made a big and bright light in the sky. Many of us saw it live or through photographic images.
In addition, a bunch of humans around the world focused on bringing more light and positive energy into our environment. Some spiritual teachers validate that we earthlings did bring in more light and now we radiate a greater glow on our planet.
Yes, it is the darkest time of the year: Shall we put attention on all that darkness or shall we look at the light? Gosh that light really makes a difference in a dark sky.
We could “hold one candle rather than curse the darkness,” reliable saying easily assimilated.
Dylan called his sister Marie to thank her for the gifts she sent. After the thank you, Dylan shared how he feels discouraged with the state of the world.
Marie said, “Yes wow there are so many downer off-putting messages in the news. There are many reports of parties hurling invectives toward one another, threats, and much divisiveness among groups. If we chose, we could use this as a time to build strength in that skill to seek out the good around us and find it. Yea, a practice kind of like holding up the candle to light the black room—on purpose—and often.”
On the phone Dylan kind of squirmed. He reported, “There are people out there who abuse children, really bad people. I hate that phenomenon and the people who do it!”
Marie said, “What we focus on we get—said another way where we put our attention makes more of that.”
” Oh Dylan,” said Marie, ” Of course you have license to feel and express your concern, outrage and other strong emotions!”
“Every human has an impulse to express strong emotion in reaction to horrendous things. This surge of feeling lets us know what we do NOT want, providing more clarity on what we DO WANT. In that way we receive the inspiration for what we want to do next.”
M, too, sees much she does not like at all, and does feel powerful emotion. Then she wants to put her eye on what SHE CAN DO.
Each breathe offers us a chance to bring light and to increase that positive vibration in this world. It takes practicing to turn to what we DO want, look for and find optimism. This heroine enjoys her life more than ever before, savoring each step of her journey.
What we hold in our minds matters. We Can Create the World We Want with the power we hold right now. Let’s feel how good it feels to focus on what we do want! Together create the world we love.
