To me, parties at my place are about connecting people, honoring our similarities and our differences, and sharing our lives with those who care. This party was especially significant because of the diversity of the people who showed up. Not only did my Reiki community appear, but people from the Chi Gong practice (be assured I will incorporate more into our healing share next year), my soul retrieval group, neighbors (whose eyes were opened because of our alternative lifestyles), personal friends, and new acquaintances. It was delightful and just how I envision a party.
I have always dreamed of having someone appear who would play my piano and one such angel manifested. Even though I can play, sort of, you probably would not enjoy listening as I require more practice than I have time to give. The magic happened as melodic turns floated through the house. Joined by some of my guests, we let our voices ring out with the joy of the season. I apologize for not being able to spend more time with each individual. When a new light being would show up, I was compelled to greet them. And when I saw someone standing alone, I scanned the crowd to intuit with whom they would enjoy talking. I was in my element.
(By the way, as I write this I am flying in a rather turbulent sky. The process I have shared with you to calm rocking planes in the Reiki first degree class was not working so I expanded the energy of the plane. Instead of extending ChoKuRei down from the plane, I also directed it out from the wings, in front of the nose, out back behind the tail and up towards the sky. The pilot told us it would be bumpy for a half hour. The roller coaster effect stopped immediately and our flight became calm).
So my message for you this holiday season is to find the people in your family that stand out and connect them to those who will honor their differences. If we were all the same, how boring life would be. You might search for that part in them that will connect with another. Family situations can be complicated and stressful, but if you take a moment to tune into what someone would enjoy, it can change an agitated holiday dinner into one that flows with the love of the season.
Remember the end of December is a time that radiates love. Religions and indigenous people honor this time with ceremony. Tune into it. Channel it to the ones you love and yourself as well, and don't forget, I'm here for you, sharing my light with you and the world. We can make a difference, one heart at a time.
May the Force (Light) be with You!
