My Christmas Message..
O.K. my Christmas message this year is a little different. I have been taking note of what is happening around me and I am feeling slightly sad that all people seem to be thinking about is what they do not have and how bad things are going to get. And if you think like that then yes they probably will get worse. But what if you decided to change the way you think? What if you decided that O.K. things are not perfect at the moment but they will get better? What do you think will happen? Things will get better and your life will improve.
I have great faith in the Human spirit, I believe that our best is yet to come, the world is changing you can feel the shift in how people think about themselves and the world around them. People are taking a greater interest in their futures and want a greater say in how things are done. Just look at the turn out for the recent American elections and the changes taking place around the world. I must say that I do not agree with some of the ways that people are trying to bring about change like the violence that some people are using to force change as innocent people are being hurt, but I would need to walk in their shoes for a while before I could condem their actions entirely, and that is not my place.
Alright I can hear you saying yeah we know all that but with the financial crisis, riots, wars, terorrism and the like how are we supposed to look on the bright side, and I admit it can be difficult but anything worth while takes a little bit of effort and as this is the time of year that seems to bring out the best in almost everyone then I believe this is the time to start taking the first steps to a more positive outlook.
Firstly look around you and find one thing that makes you smile, if you can find more then go ahead. Need some ideas? What about the looks on the faces of children when they see Santa or when they are playing in the snow or making sandcastles (depending on where you live). Listen to the laughter as they play. Take a look at the adults that stop or just turn their heads and see the smiles on their faces (I know there will be some grumps but you can't please everyone). How does that make you feel, just a little warmer inside perhaps even brings a smile to your face.
Having your family and friends around you be grateful and happy for all these people and how they make your life a better one. Have a job even one that you hate, be grateful for this as it helps pay the bills and if you don't like your job then make a promise to yourself and family to change it and get a better one and don't let the current economic climate tell you that this is not possible because if you want it badly enough you can have anything you want, just takes a little effort and belief on your part. You could try a Black Sapphire Healing Crystal to improve your job prospects in looking for another job or to help make your current job more secure.
A lot of people feel overwhelmed at this time of year, all the financial considerations, the prepartions of meals and getting ready for holidays. All the extra work that having people to stay or visit to say nothing of what presents to buy for each person. It's no wonder that we all become a little stressed out at this time so if you find yourself begining to unravel around the edges reach for either a Amethyst, Hematite, Magnetic Hematite or Rose Quartz Healing Crystal to help bring some sanity back into your life, these are wonderful crystals to help you through this time of year and I always have at least one of these in my purse or pocket.
Need some help getting into the Christmas spirit, why not do something for someone else, it does not have to involve money as most people are usually finding things a little tight at this time of year, look for someone maybe an elderly neighbour and see if they need help with their decorations or perhaps if there is snow you could offer to shovel their path for them, or water their garden if you live somewhere warmer. See no cost to you except a little bit of time and the joy you could give will return to you threefold. What about if you bake biscuits or cakes make a few extra doesn't have to be many maybe just six and give them to someone you know who is down on their luck, you won't believe the difference six little cakes or biscuits could make to someones life and how it could uplift them and make them feel like they are not alone. So look around and see what you can do for someone, maybe even just a smile a wave and a Merry Christmas is all you need to do. And guess what you will also get something out of these small but kind acts a warm sense of love for having brightened someones day.
We all know that Christmas can bring a lot of laughter and happiness but it can also bring tension how many of us have been in a situation where once the first flush of Christmas cheer wears off people start to get a little how to put this delicately shall we say a little pushy and opinionated and this can spoil all the good fun and feelings that have gone before. So to avoid this situation I would advise that you place a couple of pieces of Citrine Healing Crystal around the home and the Citrine crystal will remove all the negativity from the area so preventing any unpleasantness. You can also have a piece of Howlite Healing Crystal or Tiger Eye Healing Crystal on hand to avoid conflict. And if you have family members that you no longer speak to for whatever reason you could perhaps send them a silent Merry Christmas, you will feel good and believe it or not they will also get a warm feeling even if they do not know where it comes from. Life is too short to hold grudges. I am not saying that you should communicate with these people if you do not want to but think about how you would feel if they were no longer around and you could not say what you want to them, and if you really do want to change the situation then go for it, if not then just leave the situation as it is. You must do whatever is the best for you and your family in these situations. I only mention it because sometimes we let things get all out of proportion and then do not know how to change it and it just gets bigger and bigger so if your situation is something like this then maybe you can change it, because this is the time of year that lends itself to change more easily than any other.
O.K. I have been on my soapbox for long enough, just remember that we can make this world a better place by changing how we look at the World, by the way we change our thoughts from negative to positive, by the way we treat those around us and most importantly how we treat ourselves remember to be kind to yourself because you desire it, we all make mistakes and no one is perfect no matter how much we think we are so give your self a little love and a little bit of slack this Christmas season and sit back and enjoy. By the way don't forget to smile at the cashiers and wish them Merry Christmas even if they are grumpy it will cheer them up and think about what they may have had to put up with from previous customers who are not as enlightend as you are. Smile at everyone you meet you will be amazed at the smiles you get in response.
Have a happy and Safe Christmas and New Year and I will see you in February 2009
Love and Light

Shopping For Love
by: Author Unknown
I am flat broke from overspending at Christmas time. But I need to go shopping again soon because I am completely out of self-respect. I've said things I wish I could take back and I am not feeling too good about myself.
I also want to exchange a carton of self righteousness for an equal amount of humility. I hear that it is less expensive and wears well, and while I'm at it I'm going to check on tolerance and see if there is any available in my size.
I must remember to try to match my patience with the little I have left. My neighbor is loaded with it and it looks awfully good on her. I was told the same department has a repair shop for mending integrity. Mine has become frayed around the edges from too much compromising. If I don't get it refurbished soon, there won't be any left.
I almost forgot the most important thing of all -- compassion. If I see some-no matter what the color, size or shape -- I'm going to stock up heavily regardless of the price. I have run out of it so many times and I always feel ashamed when it happens.
I don't know why it has taken me so long to get around to shopping for these items. They don't cost nearly as much as some of the frivolous things I bought at Christmas time.
And I'll get a lot more satisfaction from them.
Yes, I'm going shopping today and I can leave my checkbook and credit cards at home! The things I'm looking for have no price-tags. What a joy!
Value the Present
by: Author Unknown
Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day.
What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course!!!! Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME.
Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day.
If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours.
There is no going back. There is no drawing against the "tomorrow". You must live in the present on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and success!
The clock is running. Make the most of today.
To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.
To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.
To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.
To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who missed the train.
To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who just avoided an accident.
To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal in the Olympics
Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time. And remember that time waits for no one.
