07/12/2017 | eaglespi | Leave a comment Being grounded and present in your physical body at this time of year can be truly sense-ational! Listen to the music that is especially sacred at this time, whether it is Hannukah, Christmas, Solstice or Kwanzaa that you celebrate. Taste the treats of the season. Feel the sensual pleasure of soft velour, fleece and silk (you know once you take off your Ugly Christmas sweater). Smell the pine trees and hot cider in the house. Watch your neighbourhood light up in a riot of colour and notice how it contrasts with the soft white hush that covers many of our towns. Truly it is a feast for the senses. Holiday Tip: Avoid overwhelm without disconnecting by staying grounded and connected in your body. Whenever you find yourself having drifted off or left the body, do something subtle to bring yourself back. You can try wiggling your toes to bring you back to your body. Or another helpful tip is to take yourself through a quick body scan to not only visually locate yourself in your surroundings, but to feel the cool fresh air on your skin, the weight of your clothing on your body, and notice how open and relaxed your body is as you inhale peace and exhale away any tension or unwanted energies that may have merged with you when you left your body.
