This is a difficult time for many. Not necessarily because of the energies now pummeling the earth, but because of 3D expectations.
So it is many are discovering what once was important is no more. As if you have turned a corner from what you wished would be to what is. Those years of hoping this would be the year of a “Leave to Beaver” holiday season no longer haunt you.
In truth, past holiday seasons were more likely about anxiety than a loving reality. Finding the right gift. Preparing the right food. Saying the right words, so no one was upset.
Such discourse is not to negate those loving encounters throughout some or all of your holidays. But instead, to point out, you no longer need to pretend that life is what it is not.
Perhaps you spent more than expected to ensure those receiving the gift believed you were wealthier than your reality. Or your food preparation cut into your personal time far beyond what you wished. But given 3D expectations, you accepted that discomfort, to ‘properly’ celebrate the holiday.
Most of your past holidays have likely been a charade. You move this way, and I will move that way. Neither party willing to acknowledge that the gift or food portion of the holidays was as important as a loving connection.
Some of you believe our comments are jaded. Such is true to a certain extent. But then, watch as the media, your family, and friends hype the importance of two or three days beyond all other days of the year. As if those two or three days represent all you mean to one another.
Lovingly being with others is not what we are addressing. Instead, we are pointing out the falsehoods your society has perpetrated holiday season after holiday season. Until those without a family or friend group to celebrate with – most commonly with gifts and food – are somehow less than.
So it is that many of you visit with those you are not terribly enamored of or gift those you do not care about just so you have something to report to others in terms of social acceptance.
Many of you deny such statements. Not because such is not true, but because such is peeling a band-aid off a wound, you are not quite ready to heal.
New you does not need to do something because you should. Yet, many of your holiday traditions have less and less to do with who you have become. Such a thought is frightening for that means all you have come to expect, all you have declared right may no longer be.
So it is we are addressing issues you are afraid to address. Are you completing your holiday preparations in joy and laughter? Or as a ‘should’ that curtails your joy activities? A question you may not have contemplated. For to do so is to turn your world upside down – as well as that of those with whom you celebrate.
The love projected during the holiday season does increase your inner spark. But only if that love is true. You cannot manufacture love as most have attempted to do for decades – pretending that the holidays were as reported in the media and social circles.
How often have you listened to others – and your inner voice – fighting the need to shop for gifts, prepare food, send holiday cards, and generally spend six weeks or so in a tizzy just so you can celebrate a few hours? That is not to say love is never shared, but that the preparations required do not equate to the results. Why must you wear certain clothes, eat certain foods, exchange gifts, and all the other preparations during this season just to pretend love is the key element?
Yes, love might be, but why do you need to complete all of the aforementioned preparations to experience that love?
Many of you love the Thanksgiving gathering, holiday lights, cards, smells, or gift exchange. But are you doing all of that in hopes of someone rewarding you with love or acceptance; or because you wish to?
Such is the crux of this channel. Which preparations are completed with love for yourself and others? And which are you doing despite your exhaustion for acceptance from others? Who are you? What is right for you? Not your relatives, neighbors, or friends. What is right for you?
If your holiday preparations are truly a loving effort that makes your heart sing, spend as much time and energy as you can completing those preparations. But if those preparations are exhausting and overwhelming, STOP!!! That is not who you are.
Two or three days a year are not your security blanket. Your security blanket is you. If you are in joy, you are in the right place. If you are exhausted, angry, frustrated, or feeling financially drained, you are merely doing what others think you should.
As a 5D forerunner, any activity attempted because you should will be exhausting this holiday season and forever.
You are no longer a follower, you are a leader. And 5D leaders decide what is best for them. That is not to say 5D leaders are selfish, but instead that they honor their inner-being.
Believing in and following your inner voice is your holiday gift to yourself.
The energies you incorporate the next few weeks will cause you to limit your actions and activities. So it is, you will not have the energy to please others at the expense of yourself.
If you had had surgery this holiday season, no one would expect you to perform as you have in the past. Just because your major shift is internal will not make a difference for you. Allow yourself to perform those tasks that seem joyful and ignore the rest. Knowing that the significant changes you undergo the next few weeks will not be visible to others.
You have a choice. Pretend that all is well in an attempt to walk the 3D/5D tightrope, and you will likely fall into an illness or anxiety that prohibits you from performing as you have. Or honor yourself and perform that which provides joy, and is within your energy limits.
This is not going to be an easy time for many.
You are of 5D and becoming more so daily. Allow that to be. And allow your physical being to adjust without adding the holiday fever of activity you have experienced for decades. So be it. Amen.
