Holiday Edition

What's Really Important

As I was driving home from picking up cookies for a cookie exchange, I felt sick to my stomach. All I could think of was everything I had to do before a string of events I am scheduled for starting this Thursday. I have to focus, be prepared and have enough of a selection to catch someone's eye. As I was coming up my driveway, my inner voice said "Ya know, today is the last day of November. The holidays are fast approaching. You love this time of year. It will go by so fast. Are you taking time to enjoy the season?" No, I wasn't. I was consumed with all I have to do. I stopped the truck and just looked around. The trees are bare, the sky was gray, the air was still. Nature was telling me "Stop and be still". Sweet - the "Aha" I needed. I took that deep breath, set the intentions to savor each moment and ensure I make time for self care and self expression. With the long exhale, I felt the stress leaving my body. Lyn Hicks writes about making a similar shift by changing our perspective. So please take 5 minutes for YOU, read on and have your own little awakening! Savor every moment of this holiday season!!

Forget the Stress and Enjoy Your Creativity!

The dark time of year is upon us when it seems the sun has hidden its warmth & light. As we enter into the holidays that seem wrought with all kinds of activities & rushing, we can re-perspective how we see this time of year, as a way to express our authentic feminine nature. It is the time where the cozy feeling of love & connection is created to fill our heart. This is a powerful time for feminine energy.

We women are the loving, nourishing support of humanity. We often forget in the rush to be the perfect “Martha Stewarts”, the incredible delight & beauty we bestow upon others as we create warm beautiful spaces, lovely food, superb presentation of gifts, décor & cozy homes to gather in & spread love, cheer & hopeful sentiments. We can truly connect to the gift of nurturing that is so healing to ourselves & others.

I invite you to see this holiday as time to realize your magic & magnificent gifts. The creativity we get to engage in as we prepare for all the celebration is what our core, our hearts & our being offers the world. Rather than be stressed & overwhelmed by the rush, see this as the grand time of loving that it is! We get to express ourselves in all our fullness! Love & embrace these tasks that create scents, smells, colors, delights for the eyes, & feelings of warmth & heartfelt moments that touch others with senses nourished, engaged & explored.

We are the master artists, Ladies! Our gift of love & artistry gets its time during the holidays & are thoroughly explored at this time of year. Let us fully engage & express our wonderful selves! Allow the beautiful magic you have unfold in a way of fun & peace! Don’t push & rush. Rather enjoy, engage & delight in the flow of being the woman who holds the sacred space of gathering. It is a mystical time of love & connection. Make it your choice to fully appreciate your feminine power by providing the loving space for all to gather & explore the love of the season.

- Lyn HIcks describes herself as "a zany, playful spirit who tremendously enjoys nature!" Her passion is to inspire women to gain health through relaxation and play. To learn more about Lyn & her one of a kind life mastery services, go to /www.lynhicks.com. Thanks for sharing Lyn!
