My first husband was a bit of a Grinch, with no desire to celebrate Christmas.
His Grinch-attitude often got me really deep down in the S-A-D dumps.
But, let's not talk about him.
He's just another one of those not-so-healthy relationships that withered away when I figured out how to align myself to Truth.
(btw - when you learn how to align your chakras the way I teach, all kinds of toxic relationships wither away)
Let's talk about the True meaning of Christmas.
The Teri-Lou-Who version of Christmas.
Teri-Lou-Who (my pet name for my inner child) believes in celebrating the darkest days of the year (as I live in the northern hemisphere), and all the great things that come from turning within, going dark for awhile, hibernating from the outside cold and re-member-ing what is really important in life.
My Christmas Spirit is about the Winter Solstice.
In Latin, solstice means "the sun" (sol) "to make a stand" (sistere). This is the time where the sun appears to stand still in the sky as the Earth's axis pauses. The days leading up to and after the Winter Solstice (December 21/22), right around Christmas, is a time to take pause in our lives, be still, listen to the wisdom within (the Christ light within) and gather new energy to move into new directions, towards the light, for the new year. After the Winter Solstice (the longest night and shortest day of the year) we start moving towards a new light in our lives.
I used to dread winter, and all the coldness that came with it. Now, I celebrate winter, and stillness, and all the beauty of turning within myself for answers. Cuz that's where and how I met Teri-Lou-Who!
When Hobbit took this picture, I was deep in thought, in my own little dark world.
Hobbit laughed. (fyi - hobbits are quite the opposite of grinches)
I paused, and smiled.
He snapped the picture, and laughed louder.
And then I laughed, pivoted on my heel, and turned towards the light behind me.
And that, my dear friend, is the Teri-Lou-Who Spirit of Christmas.
Actually, this is one reason I created my Chakra Alignment Sacred Mentorship 5-Month Program to help you, as you pause in the darkness, to find the light within yourself.
Cuz I don't want anyone I know to get stuck (or stay stuck) in those cold dark places like I was before I met Teri-Lou-Who.
And this is the perfect time of year to start this program. This time of year, when all your darknesses and shadows are most obvious, is the best time to turn inside, and meet your inner child and find your answers within yourself.
This program isn't like other chakra balancing programs. I won't show you any tools like essential oils, crystals, and wacky diet changes. (those are all outside things anyway)
This program is internal. It's about getting simple clarity with your affirmations (MIND), becoming body aware so you can embody your intentions (BODY), and connecting with the deep divine within yourself (SPIRIT).
Plus, it's simple, and practical, and it fits into your every-day life.
I promise, it's easier than you think.
If you're ready to stop shivering in the dark and cold ugly parts of your life, and find the ever-shining light inside yourself, I'd be honored to mentor you through the process.
I have just a few spots left this month for a FREE Chakra Assessment to see if you and I are a good fit for a Sacred Mentorship Journey together.
