Reflections on my Sacred Initiation
As we slowly creep into colder weather and shorter days, my heart starts to flutter at the anticipation of the holidays. If you’re anything like me, you have incredible intentions to wrap the holidays with stress-free, feminine, generous love, but when you’re actually “in it” you feel just the opposite.
It’s sad that the most magical time of year always turns into a total sh*t show. I’m here today to give you an invitation to do things differently this year, so the holidays can be every drop of deliciousness you remember from when you were a child.
Winter is a sacred time of stillness and space. Seeds have been gathered in the soil and wait to bloom in Spring. Animals are hibernating. The days are shorter. The energy of the earth is clearly telling us that it is a time for resting, drinking tea by the fire, and gathering energy for the season ahead. And yet we’re all running around like chickens with our heads cut off at the mall, expending more energy than we do all year! No, thank you.
For years I celebrated “Crazy Christmas.” I waited to buy presents at the last minute, stressed out about the wrapping, and was always thinking of those dumb non-presents like “breakfast in bed” or “a dinner out on me!” just because I didn’t know what to buy someone and was so unorganized. I always felt stressed, guilty, embarrassed, exhausted, and chubby. (Christmas cookies were the only way to ground myself from the buzz.)
But when I became a mother, I knew I wanted to be intentional about what the holidays were like in our house, so every year I make a point to not only think about what we are doing during this time, but what the house feels like. And as the mother, I know that my mood, energy, attitude, and joy affect our whole family.
This is what I do to stay grounded:
