Sensitive souls can get hooked by their need for perfection at the holidays. Part of that can be control and part of it is self-care. The key is knowing the difference and that may depend on your level of sensitivity. If the lights have to be the right colour and intensity, the food needs to be perfect for everyone’s special diets and you are really concerned about getting the annual family photo just right, chances are you have slipped into perfectionism rather than self-care. These 3D world expectations are a big disconnect from our knowing that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. Your sensitivities are a spiritual gift that could make this holiday season so much more profound if you honour them. Do not become a martyr for the sake of making the “perfect” holiday. Today’s Holiday Tip: Balance your need to make this holiday season special with remembering what the holidays are really about and honouring your wellness needs. Recognize your need for quiet and reflection amidst all of the holiday gatherings and events. Embrace your sense of connection to everyone and be sure that wherever you feel called to help that it is truly meaningful to you. Honour your spiritual energetic body with things like prayer, meditation and radiating love. Those gifts bless both you and those you share them with.
