December 22, 2017 | eaglespi | Leave a comment In every moment you are at choice. Even at the holidays. With all the energetic shifts going on, it is helpful to keep that in mind as you do these last few days a bit differently. An easy shift that can be quite powerful is to watch your language in order to support what you truly feel and mean. Scientists have reported that we think an average of 60,000 to 70,000 thoughts a day, so can you imagine if a larger majority focussed on your power to choose? What if you included some powerful affirmations about choice, like these ones… I can choose what affects me this holiday season. I can choose to embrace new holiday traditions that bring me joy. I can choose to spend time with those that nourish and nurture me so that I am renewed by month’s end. I can choose to honour the energetic cues I receive from my physical body knowing it is more thank ok to rest when I am tired, eat the foods that nourish me when I am hungry and get plenty of liquids when I am thirsty. I can choose to be even more present during this holiday season rather than distracted or made too busy to remain centred and at peace.. I can choose to be confident in the gatherings I go to and at peace with the invitations I decline. I can choose to be happy with the way I celebrate the holidays season, rather than getting caught up in the way I have thought it always has to be. I can choose to feel loved by the friends and family I spend time with, rather than feel obligated to be in situations that do not feel loving or empowering. I can choose… there are many more that you may wish to add. Today’s tip gives you another way to be very clear about the choices you are making this holiday season. Today’s Holiday Tip: Watch your language today. If you catch yourself ‘should-ing’ on yourself or another, stop and change your language. I invite you to replace ‘should’ with ‘could.’ It is a wonderful way to remember that you are at choice. Check out this example to see what I mean. I should buy a few more gifts for under the tree, becomes…. I could buy a few more gifts for under the tree and I am choosing to (not to) at this time.
