Dear Ones,

It is almost as if too much sunshine is streaming through your windows. Emotionally and physically , so much is happening to you now that even we are having difficulties keeping up with your latest and greatest shifts.

We are aware of the wide array of holidays impacting a large percentage of those now on earth – as well as your unusual feelings that you will not complete all of your required tasks in the time alloted.

Your internal shifts and change are compromising this holiday season, as are your unexpected needs to be somewhere else at the same time you try to continue your family  traditions.

Many of you may have had similar feelings of panic during past holiday seasons – too little money, winter weather, all of the family can not be together, all of the family can be together and on and on. The difference this year is that you feel as if you are in a daze. You are going through the motions of selecting gifts, food and whatever else is an important tradition in your home, but you are doing so as if in a fog with the added panic of extremely limited time.

Let us explain both your panic and your fog. Astrologically, the 21st of December, 2010 is a day “written large,” if you will, as both a solar eclipse and the winter solstice occur on that date. You are beginning to feel the effects of both. More importantly, you are shifting dramatically internally to meet the Universal deadline for both happenings.

Those of you reading these materials know that this has not been a “normal” spiritual year. For those of you who have difficulties remembering how much has happened within the last 12 or 13 months, we suggest you review the blogs, readings, videos or internet materials of your favorite channels and astrologers. The shifts within you, the earth and the Universe have been dramatic. December 21 will be the cap, the fireworks of this year.

Will you explode? No. Will you shift? Most definitely. And that is your sense of not having enough time to complete all that you wish to complete before your holiday festivities. As you move closer to the 21st of December, your head will be less clear for you will be shifting into your heart mode – at a greater pace than ever before.

You will be shifting gears during the busiest season of the year. A bit like finding a need to shift gears on an interstate as five lanes of traffic push you to continue at your current speed without any hiccups that such a gear shifting might incur.

This is a “fence” month. Your head is filled with lists of holiday gifts to purchase and foods to prepare. Yet your heart will want to slow down and savor the moment – whether that moment be watching the first snowfall or baking some lovely sugar cookies that you eat by yourself, rather than saving those cookies for the “big day” as you had promised.

You will not feel as you have during past holiday seasons and that will bother you.

This message is to tell you that you are doing what you need to do. If you are extremely task-oriented, perhaps you might decrease your holiday stress level by purchasing gifts sooner rather than later  or suggesting your family eat out rather than expecting that you will be able to or even be interested in preparing their standard holiday feast.

These words are not true for everyone. But most of you moving into your New Age roles of trailblazer, wagon train leader and scout master will be quite befuddled during the next few weeks. You will dash from task to task without being able to or even finding the need to complete those tasks. And you will astound your family and friends for you are the quintessential task master. You are the one who has ten lists going at one time and is miraculously able to complete them all in a seemingly easy fashion. Not this year.

You are shifting. Allow that to be. Allow your holiday preparations to be much more simple with long stretches of rest throughout. Allow yourself to know that love is not displayed by the perfect gift if your heart is not involved. Allow yourself to give the ones you love a personal hug, visit or whatever strikes your inner being as perfect. That gift will mean more than all the large screen televisions you could have bought them.

Give from the heart. Prepare your holidays from the heart. Most of all, excuse yourself from continuing your role of  the exceptional planner, task master, gift giver and party animal. Allow yourself to be. And you will have given yourself the best holiday season of your life to date. So be it. Amen.

    Hello Brenda,
    Wow, that message was so accurate, wasn’t it? On first reading it, I thought, ‘Oh, that doesn’t apply to me. I don’t rush around frantically, I know the heart is more important than traditional rituals, etc.’ But those words were absolutely right! I have distant relatives who’ll be mighty offended to hear nothing from me. I have a pile of Christmas cards and postage stamps right here. I’ve been staring at them for a week, thinking dully, ‘Post the cards. Post the cards!’ But I just can’t do it! I’ve spent three hours making my toddler grandson some toy felt food, but twenty minutes to address a few cards feels like facing Everest. I just can’t seem to get a grip! ‘Fog’ is right. My brain’s shrieking, ‘Do this job! Pay that bill!’ And I just sit here like a catatonic marshmallow. It’s weird, isn’t it? Well, only 6 days till the 21st! 😀

    Hi Barbara,
    I’ve only received 7 cards this year – usually the count is 50 or so. So we’re not the only ones who aren’t into the usual frantic holiday pace. Did you see what I posted yesterday and reposted today? Totally forgot how to spell disseminate and so even with spell check used the wrong word. Spelling has never been a strength – but with spell check! Fog or what!
    PS Bet your grandson loved his fun felt food!

    Hi Brenda,
    He hasn’t got it yet. 😉
    Oh, I saw that you meant disseminate, and didn’t give it another thought. I have seen some hilarious results when spellcheck picks the word it *thinks* you meant – but you can always tell what the writer intended to say. 😀
    Yeah, you’re right, come to think of it I’ve only recieved 2 cards. I mean received. So we’re not the only ones, are we? And it just goes to show, we’re perhaps harder on ourselves for things that other people don’t even mind about! 🙂

    Of course you’re right. A large part of these shifts is letting go of “shoulds” including the need to be perfect.
