Whatever you celebrate this time of year, give yourself permission to return to a state of childlike wonder. Celebrate the light within you in order to illuminate any darkness you may be holding on to. You do not have to go into the holidays exhausted and with a stressed spirit. Take this time as a sacred journey to face any pain or negative emotions and turn it into love and light. Learn the process of letting go of the old and embracing the new.
Look to your Light this holiday season and trust that the Light is well equipped to shine brightly on your path. Bear down and give birth to your new self that is healed and whole, full of radiant Light and Love, and ready to offer such to those around you.
