Energy Shaping Christmas

Christmas has an energy as surely as the tree we decorate. And like the tree, we get to choose how it will look and feel. We’re doing it all year long, but now, in December, with thought energy, belief energy, and feeling energy coming together with the power of so much focus all around us, we are hanging the ornaments of our Christmas experience.

Oh, I have a life-time of choices tucked away in the boxes of my experiences. I know the inclination to use tradition and heart-pulls from the past. But in any one moment, the Universe offers me a million possibilities and I’m inclined to get “jiggy” about the adventure of choosing which parts of the past I will weave into this year’s Christmas adventure.

Seasons of Change

I’ve always resisted the metaphor of seasons representing different ages. And yet, standing in my yard yesterday, doing my version of a few yoga stretches, I looked at the rich color of leaves all around me and saw a connection.

What was once so firmly attached and held close as we nurtured our potential becomes something we want to share. We become the autumn tree. Stunning in the hues we have acquired, we find ourselves ready to let the leaves of our experience fall into the community around us.

Engaging the Energy Fields of Opportunity

Every opportunity can be seen as a bubble of energy with its own color, currents, and cadence. From our usual place of activity and comfort, these appear on the horizon of our journey like roadside stops. They might offer excitement, growth, more of what we love, new vistas, or another direction.

But, lately, I have noticed a change.

Money

Money, like everything else, is energy. We pull it out of our pocket or purse knowing others will recognize its power to buy things, but at the quantum level, it is nothing more than vibrating molecules. And each of us determines how it fits into our life by our beliefs about money.

One person might push it in his pocket feeling it would have no effect on his day. Another might be delighted about using it to buy popcorn. The wonder of any amount of money is determined by the value we place on it.

Mingling Energies

Though we would like to think our thoughts, intentions, and actions can let us interact with others without having them affect our personal spirit, every person in our life has a unique flavor of energy they bring into our relationship. There is nothing that can stop the two energies from merging together.

Yet the vibrating energy of the beliefs, feelings, and thoughts of both of us will spontaneously blend… like watching two rain drops on a windshield form a larger drop that flows across the glass. It’s not good or bad, but being aware of this can empower us as we shape our days.

A Series of Small Choices

When I remember everything is energy, I see the many small events scattered throughout my day with different eyes. Sometimes that’s empowering. It can be insightful. It’s often an opportunity to create the feel and flow of my life.

Energy Birthday Gifts

My first birthday gift came from the Universe ~ a day early.

I opened up my laptop and found nothing on my desk top except the icons along the bottom bar. Restarting didn’t change anything.

A Trail of Joy

Out of the very ordinary, we created shimmering moments of delight. The drifting sphere caught us completely and, when it popped, we dipped our wand in the soapy solution and blew through the hole again, wanting more.

Email From Energy

Life does get busy and our thoughts will always outrun any schedule, list of things-to-do, or appointment books. Most of these rushing flashes are so familiar, we don’t notice their passing. Some help us keep track of our days. The few that make us wonder are often set aside as impractical as we manage time.

empowerment, potential, courage, choices, intuition, self awareness, self help, childhood sexual abuse, Jeanne McElvaney, GoToSpirit.com, Time Slipping, Old Maggie’s Spirit Whispers,These are the treasure. They remind we have relationships beyond other people and our animals. And when we stop, for just a moment, to remember everything is energy, we find we have a personal connection with everything.

Guiding My Potential

When we are thinking about something we desire, it’s empowering to gather stories of others who found their way before us. They can point us in heartfelt directions and remind us dreams unfold step-by-step. And they often show us blueprints of possibilities.

What we think about and how we think about it is creating a path that will take us to more of the same. What we believe builds the fences that makes us feel safe and gives our life journey direction. Feelings are the weather in our days. Doing anything that brings serenity, successes, or a smile will bring sunlight to our dreams.
