Holidays, Family Drama, and Emotional Upheaval
In the United States, December is filled with huge amounts of emotion, tension, stress, anxiety, hopes, fears, and expectations (that are sometimes not filled). The focus is on the Holidays and Family, and that combination can bring past hurts and Soul Loss to the forefront. Everyone is trying to prepare for the "drama" of visiting relatives, many who are unable to see a person as anyone other that who s/he was as a child.
There is a huge divide between the expectation of love and acceptance from family/loved ones, and the reality of family patterns being replayed over and over again. Most of the time it is unconscious (no fault of any relative), but in some situations, relatives can be quite cruel if one does not "fit" into their notions of a "good daughter, son, cousin, wife, husband, mother, uncle, etc." Psychologically and energetically, this is exhausting and secretly disappointing.
The Spirits have come through in a big way in each and every appointment, to help clients feel loved, cared for, protected, and above all, SAFE. All of us have wounds from childhood and beyond, that are part of Family Shadows. No matter how loving the family, or the relatives, there is always some sort of painful experience that has happened as a result of one not fulfilling certain expectations (and the hurt that comes from the resulting judgment).
Many people are preparing to travel for the holidays, to make the journey "home", and to renew the bonds of family, friendship, and love. The chakras most affected by these preparations are the Ancestral chakra, the Root chakra, and the Heart chakra. Any blockages, any intrusions, any "scar tissue", and any Soul Loss can appear to manifest more strongly, and immediately put a client in a position of weakness when working with these issues.
It can be difficult to remember everything that one has accomplished, and all of the growth and strides made, when one returns home. If you are struggling with these complicated feelings and a desire to be truly seen as you are, and not who you were, then Call Out to your own Helping Spirits (in prayer, out loud or in your head, or by offerings). They want to help, and they want everyone to feel Loved, even if those feelings are too complicated and disappointing to feel during the Holidays.
If you need help with releasing some of the scar tissue, and regaining your energy after the Holidays, then let's work together for Soul Retrieval and Emotional Release.
Remember: You are SO LOVED AND BLESSED by your Helping Spirits-- all you need to do is ask for their help!
And finally, for those who I've met, and for those I haven't: I love you. I love you through all of the pain and the heartache of this month. You are loved.
