The rush of the holiday season, with its desire to please everyone, can be hectic and compelling if we let it. We find ourselves caught up in a flow of plans that we don't really want to do, but...
This morning I was in need of a walk, feeling pressured to please everyone, without really paying attention to my own inner voice. Being a people pleaser is a hard bond to break free.
With the daily advent calendar door in mind, I was open to what gifts may cross my path. But my heart really wasn't in it. On the stretch home, a collection of pine cones was strewn across the path. Grateful for the gift, I thanked the tall pine tree for sharing her bounty. I gathered them up and put them in a basket at home. I knew pine has to do with healing our emotions. When I looked up the reference, it was more of a fit than I realized. "Pine helps to balance strength and softness. It reminds us to express our creative energies without feelings of guilt and without allowing others to overly influence or manipulate." (Nature Speak)
A perfect remedy for the holiday season.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
Love and joyful blessings,
