Home for the Holidays – Day 4

December 13, 2013

What if you could create a holiday season of fun and delight rather than exhaustion and fight?

7 tools in 7 days to bring you home to the magic and greatness of you this holiday season!

Day 4

Didn’t someone, with reference to the holiday season, once say, “Tis the season to be jolly”? Yet, often, our holiday experience is anything but jolly! Drama. Trauma. Upset. Intrigue. More drama. More trauma. Many families thrive on this.

What if you could have joy no matter what anyone else around you was choosing? What if you could look at the drama and trauma, not get wrapped up in it in any way whatsoever and actually find the humor in it? Hmmm. I wonder what that might create.

Here’s the thing about drama, trauma, upset and intrigue…. It’s not real. Sure, it might feel very real; especially when everyone is buying it as real and riding the wave of emotions. And yet, all of it is a creation. What would it take to be in allowance of the creation of drama and trauma those around you are choosing and not be at the effect of it?

Tool #4 – Find the humor in every situation

You could begin by asking the question, “What’s amusing about this that I’m not getting?”

When we have seriousness about what’s going on around us, or we are trying to fix the situation that everyone is upset about, or we are attempting to change the people who are choosing the drama and trauma, we are not truly in allowance. When we can see what is going on and actually laugh about it, we are transitioning into allowance.

So, you might be saying, “That sounds good, but you don’t know my family! I don’t see anything amusing about any of this!! How can I change that?”

Great question! Keep asking the question. Stay in the question. Don’t ever leave the question.

“What’s amusing about this that I’m not getting?” “What would it take for me to have and be the joy of me?” And, “What energy, space and consciousness can be and my body be to be the fun, joy and laughter we truly be?”

Would you be willing to give it a try? Would you be willing to create a joyful holiday season for you? Would you be willing to recognize that fun, joy and laughter is YOU and no one can take that away?
