Recognizing that many individuals may need a little extra love and support this time of year with the holidays, this message is intended to help you thrive with grace and gratitude. We can all benefit from more self-love and self-care, especially at this time of year.
It seems the past few years have really offered its share of challenges. While overcoming the proverbial storms we have weathered and those that may continue to arise, we are also being shown the contrasting experience and the silver lining within every experience. Throughout it all, we must remember that everything is energy and awareness is everything. Choosing to see each experience from a Higher soul perspective also enables us to view if there is a lesson being presented to us with the challenge or if it is an opportunity to learn and grow. Staying in a space of grace while embracing an attitude of gratitude assists us with this process, especially during the holiday season.
The period between Thanksgiving and New Year may stir up feelings of days gone by as well as worries related to holidays. As we recognize, the holidays can be a very stressful time for a lot of people. This stress may involve shopping for gifts and the associated financial aspects as well as the interaction with family during get-togethers. A gamut of emotions may arise as we reflect on previous holiday experiences and even remember loved ones who are no longer with us in physical form.
Please recognize that it is absolutely necessary for you to honor yourself and what you are feeling, especially during the holiday season. Consciously choose to acknowledge any emotions you are feeling. You are in control of your thoughts, words, actions, emotions and responses. You choose how you wish to perceive an experience and how you wish to respond to it. Remember, each individual is having their own unique human life experience, so it is always beneficial to be the observer whenever possible. Choosing to practice self-care and self-love will help us thrive during this time with grace and gratitude.
Unity’s Third Principle states, “Our thoughts have creative power to influence events and determine our experiences” (unity.org). Therefore, we do have the power within us to create the reality we seek and that does include setting our intentions for a peaceful holiday season. Instead of feeling stressed and overwhelmed, we can consciously and intentionally choose how we wish to feel as we approach any interaction or experience.
Become aware if you are dwelling in the past or constantly thinking about the future. The now is where we create. Spending time in reflection of past experiences and considering our future is part of our human life experience. We just don’t want to miss out on the present moment.
Tip #2 – Just Breathe
Breath is life-force energy. We breathe naturally/autonomously. When we breathe consciously, we have the ability to modify the energy within ourselves, which, in turn, can affect the energy around us. Focus on breathing in peace, love, ease and compassion and then exhale fear, worry and doubt. When you are feeling anxious, overwhelmed, stressed, uncertain or just a bit wonky, remember to just breathe!
Tip #3 – Invest in You
Take time for you and honor your emotions. Choosing to make yourself a priority is essential. Practicing self-love and self-care are extremely important for our physical health and mental/emotional well-being. Intentionally investing time and energy in your well-being will benefit you and those around you.
Tip #4 – Honor your Emotions
In each moment, allow yourself to feel the emotion as it arises. Rather, than setting the feeling aside for later when it’s more convenient for you to feel it, begin a practice of honoring the emotion in the moment. Your mind, body and spirit will thank you!
Tip #5 – Don’t Take Things Personally
What other people say and do is a reflection or projection of their own personal reality. The same is true for you. Communicate clearly to the best of your ability and don’t take things personally.
Tip #6 – Cocoon for Clarity
In essence, cocooning involves pulling your energy in as you become more aware of energy drains, whether it be people, places or things. Gather your energy and intentionally bring it back to you. Tune in and listen to the guidance you are receiving. Cocooning may also involve resting/sleeping and establishing boundaries.
Tip #7 – Strive for Balance
Take time for you as you take time for others. Balance work with play. Balance giving with receiving. There is no need to assign a ratio for the balance. Simply choose to recognize when adjustments may be necessary.
Tip #8 – Release and Receive
Release feeling obligated to reciprocate when someone gives you a gift. Allow yourself the ability to receive without giving. Honor yourself and what you are feeling, but there is no need to hold onto the feel bad or guilt energy. Simply receive and sincerely say, “Thank you!” If you are the giver, release the expectation that a gift will be reciprocated. Be mindful of the intention behind giving.
Tip #9 – Give the Gift of You
If you typically exchange gifts with a friend, family member or co-worker, you may be guided to do something different this year. Many individuals do purchase what they need when they need it, so you may choose to forgo giving a material gift and instead give the gift of you. Plan an excursion or get together and spend time with someone you love. You may also want to volunteer your time or donate to a favorite charity or worthwhile cause. Perhaps, you may bake a special treat or create a handmade gift. These thoughtful gifts and the gift of your presence is immeasurable and greatly appreciated.
Tip #10 – Be Thankful
Gratitude is an expression of thankfulness and an acknowledgement of appreciation. Gratitude assists with the flow of abundance. Acknowledging and expressing gratitude for all you are thankful for radiates this energy out into the universe and returns in more blessings. Being grateful for the blessings within the challenges is essential as well. As often as you can, choose to express your gratitude for that which you are thankful for.
Practicing self-love and self-care every day and not just during the holiday season will create a ripple effect throughout our life. Instead of isolating yourself from others, consciously choose to empower and honor yourself with the choices that you make. Since you are mind, body and spirit, it is essential to take care of your physical and energetic health as well as your mental/emotional well-being. Rather than simply survive, you can actually thrive during this time with grace and gratitude. Unity’s First Principle is intended to comfort us as it reminds us that, “God is everywhere and always present in every circumstance. This divine energy underlies and animates all of existence” (unity.org).
I wish you peace. I wish you love. I wish you joy. I wish you happiness. I hope the upcoming holidays are joyful, relaxing and stress-free!
Unity Principles first came into my awareness when I attended a class at Unity Church of Overland Park in Overland Park, Kansas in 2009. I gravitated towards Unity’s teachings and was eager to learn more. The discoveries freed me from fear-based religious oppression and have given me courage to forge ahead on my path of learning and discovery. My life has changed considerably since choosing to practice and embody these universal principles.
In addition to practicing these teachings, I have been guided to share them with others. On several occasions, I have been invited to be the Sunday service inspirational guest speaker at Unity Center of Tulsa in Tulsa, Oklahoma; Unity of Fayetteville in Fayetteville, Arkansas; Unity Church of the Ozarks in Bentonville, Arkansas and Unity of the Hills Spiritual Center in Branson, Missouri. I am so grateful to Charles and Myrtle Fillmore for being spiritual pioneers and reminding us of our own ability to heal and create. Fortunately, I have also made the trek to visit Unity Village several times, and I always feel blessed to be there.
Whether you have a strong spiritual foundation, are just at the beginning of your spiritual journey, or do not believe in God at all, Unity offers spiritual insights and guidance for all people. While having its origins rooted in Christianity, the Unity teachings bring together ancient wisdom from many faith traditions. You will not find dogma in Unity, and we honor all spiritual paths.
Because we know that each person comes to Unity at a different place on their journey, we invite you to use the language that resonates with you. Whether you like to say God, the Universe, Spirit, divine truth, Love, or some other phrase, we believe that this divine energy is all the same: a benevolent expression of goodness, order, abundance, and love in the world. (Unity.org)
These ancient, universal principles taught by Unity offer foundational guidance for living abundantly and staying in tune with your own divine nature.
God is everywhere and always present in every circumstance. This divine energy underlies and animates all of existence.
Human beings are innately good because they are connected to and an expression of Spirit.
Our thoughts have creative power to influence events and determine our experiences.
Prayer and meditation connect and align us to our own spiritual nature and to God.
It is not enough to understand spiritual teachings. We must apply our learning in all areas of life, incorporating them into our thoughts, words, and actions. (Unity.org)
Much of our power is to be found in the choices we make and the actions we take, with every choice either leading us down the same familiar path or propelling us toward a new future. ~ Debbie Ford
We know that the fear energies are really intense right now and feel extremely heavy with everything that is transpiring around us – health concerns, weather related events, world events and so on. As uncertainty continues, please do your best to stay present, adaptable and flexible as well as see the blessings within any challenges that arise.
In order to navigate through these tumultuous waters, it is so important that we do our best to focus on peace and love, which includes love for our self and what we need. Taking time for self-care (even scheduling it) is extremely beneficial for our physical health and mental/emotional well-being. We don’t want to wait until we are already physically and energetically exhausted before taking action.
Many of us are craving connection, yet we still need to make conscious choices. Tuning in to our own knowingness will assist us in doing just that. As human beings, we do have free will although it doesn’t always seem that way. Our ability to create begins with recognizing the power of choice. Sometimes, this concept is interpreted as – to choose this means to not choose that.
Life is truly all about making choices and then choosing to take action on the choices that we make. The thoughts that we think and the words that we speak are energetic emissions. Once we are able to recognize the incredible power we behold and that everything is indeed energy, we can truly become conscious creators.
When we align our thoughts, words and actions with our beliefs and come from a place of love, amazing things will and do happen. We attract those people into our life who are a reflection of us, and we also attract people who are here to help us grow. We can choose to explore more in life and perhaps even step outside of our familiar comfort zone. The power of choice enables us to enhance our life or continue as is. It is up to us to embrace and embody the power that is within.
This excerpt from Rumi’s poem, Be Melting Snow, reminds us of our power within: “Lo, I am with you always means when you look for God, God is in the look of your eyes, in the thought of looking, nearer to you than yourself or things that have happened to you. There’s no need to go outside. Be melting snow. Wash yourself of yourself. A white flower grows in quietness. Let your tongue become that flower.”
Be true to you and make conscious, informed choices.
Feel into who and what is right for you as you make decisions.
Invest time and energy in what you love to grow your spirit.

2020 has offered its share of challenges, including those related to environment, weather, health and financial. In addition to these challenges, the holiday season can already be a very stressful time for a lot of people. This stress may involve shopping for gifts and the associated financial aspects as well as the interaction with family during get-togethers. With the health concerns, many are also worried about gathering with those they love.
If you feel anxious and tend to dread the holiday season, take a moment to breathe in deeply and let go of the lower and heavier vibrational emotions of fear, worry, doubt, regret, guilt, shame, anger, frustration, etc. and breathe in the higher vibration of love. Allow yourself to acknowledge those individuals and situations that are triggers for you as well as those people, places and things that push your buttons, so that you can clear those triggers from affecting you anymore.
When you notice a tightness in your jawline and recognize that you may grind your teeth or clench your jaws, this can be an indication of holding in the frustrations. It may also mean that there are words you are not expressing. It could also just mean that you are stressed, or perhaps, it is all of the above. If you realize that you are not expressing yourself fully, you may be guided to at least say what you need to telepathically/energetically if you feel that you are unable to verbalize the words at that time.
In those instances that you feel annoyed, bothered or triggered, in that moment state aloud or in your mind, “This bothers me. This is affecting me. I feel annoyed.” Express whatever wordage that would apply. In doing so, you are choosing to clear the energy in that moment rather than allowing it to build.
Recognize that it is absolutely necessary for you to honor yourself and what YOU are feeling, especially during the holiday season. Consciously choose to acknowledge any emotions you are feeling and then release them. You are in control of your thoughts, words, actions, emotions and reactions. You choose how you wish to perceive an experience and how you wish to respond to it. Remember, each individual is having their own unique human life experience.
Ways to Reduce Stress Here are a few tips to energetically assist you in having a stress-free holiday season or simply assist with reducing stress:
Tip #1 – Be Present Focus your energy on being present and in the NOW at this very moment. Allow yourself to become fully aware and completely present right here, right now.
Tip #2 – Breathe Take a moment to breathe in deeply and exhale anyone and anything that no longer serves you (is good for you). We breathe naturally and autonomously. This is a reminder to breathe consciously.
Tip #3 – Ground Your Energy Grounding your energy keeps you present and in the moment. Keeping firmly planted energetically helps prevent feelings of fuzziness or spacey-ness that can often disperse your personal energy. Staying hydrated and visualizing your legs as tree roots growing deep into the earth are simple ways to ground your energy.
Tip #4 – Center Your Energy Centering your energy involves finding that calm spot deep inside yourself that is eternal being-ness. By centering your energy, you are able to more easily attain the peace within. In doing so, you are more likely to respond rather than react to your external circumstances.
Tip #5 – Release and Receive Release feeling obligated to reciprocate when someone gives you a gift. Allow yourself the ability to receive without giving. If you are the giver, release the expectation that a gift will be reciprocated. Be mindful of the intention behind giving.
Tip #6 – Give the Gift of You If you typically exchange gifts with a friend, family member or co-worker, you may be guided to do something different this year. Many individuals do purchase what they need when they need it, so you may choose to forgo giving a material gift and instead give the gift of you.
Tip #7 – Express your Gratitude Acknowledging and expressing gratitude for all you are thankful for radiates this energy out into the universe and returns in more blessings.
Honoring yourself every day and not just during the holiday season will create a ripple effect throughout your life. Rather than isolating yourself, consciously choose to honor yourself. Remember, your mental/emotional well-being is a key aspect of your physical health. Consciously choose to journey into this holiday season with ease and peace.
