14/12/2016 | eaglespi | Leave a comment Today’s #DeepenIntoDecember Advent Calendar blog was delayed. I needed time to take in the news of a loss of a local sensitive soul who was deeply troubled by her gifts at times and yet very much committed to everyone that she served in her healing work and in the additional employment that she held. She will be missed by her family and loved ones and clients too. Today’s post is dedicated to Susan Blanchard. Rest in peace. If you are feeling depressed or distraught and need support, here are links for suicide prevention in Canada and in the US national lifeline. You are not alone and there is help available for you my friend. Many blessings, EagleSpirit We want to help you celebrate your holiday season and deepen into the joy of thriving as a sensitive soul! Each morning a new door will open to help you savour the day and honour your sensitivities. Imagine opening a daily treat from now until December 25th that has been created just for you! You may not be feeling suicidal, but overwhelmed and needing some help today. Sharing 5 of my favourite holiday tips to help you feel as solid as possible during the holidays. Sensitive souls need to be mindful of getting drawn into drama. This is not the path of service you are meant for. Instead, radiate calm and peace. Easy to say and to recommend to those we share our gifts with, but it can be life saving advice that we must follow ourselves. Today’s Top 5 Holiday Tips: Rest when you are tired. Eat when you are hungry. Get plenty of liquids to make it easier to run the energies that you are so aware of at this time. Ask for help. Whether it is having someone hold space for you so that you can share, or getting an energetic tuneup, getting away to reenergize your bodies or simply getting quiet because you have referred out some of the work you do. Taking time for you is important. It is not selfish. It is what will keep you self-full so that you may help others when you are called to do so. And even more importantly, when it is not in the highest good for you to step into a situation, please, please turn that superhero-rescue-everyone-cape into a lovely table cloth or window treatment and trust that the very best outcome will unfold without your interference. That is right. If you step into a situation where you are not meant to be part of the solution, you can be part of the problem for the ‘other’ and for yourself energetic too!
