Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukah or simply the spirit of the Holidays, this season is filled with much positive energy. Observe this wonderful energy, bask in its glow, take advantage of it and then make it last all year long. That may seem like a tall order but it really is possible.
While basking in the glow of this wonderful time of the year take note of just what creates so much positive energy during the holidays. What makes this season so unusual and enjoyable is that it satiates all five of our senses while providing us hope for peace and joy for the moment. No other time of the years touches our hearts and nurtures us so much in such a few short weeks.
In order to preserve this wonderfully positive holiday energy so you can enjoy it all year long, begin by observing all the special sounds of the season. Notice the hustle of shoppers scurrying with bags of gifts and food filled to the brim or the rustle of wrapping paper. Add to that the ringing of chimes, the sound of the doorbell when special guests arrive and the archived centuries of music written just for Christmas that appears the day after Thanksgiving and you have dozens of special sounds that are memorable and distinctly connected to this season.
Whether feel to you means actually touching something physically or it is something you sense or experience on the inside doesn’t matter. Either works for creating lots of positive energy. Touching and hanging family heirloom ornaments provides deep rooted positive energy just as much as the new one you just purchased. In this same category be sure to include all those hugs, smiles and well wishes from family, friends and even strangers.
Food, food and more sumptuous food shows up during the holidays in the form of hors d’oeuvres, pastries, mulled wines and tons of baked goods. It seems like one morsel is more delectable than the other. These sumptuous, mouth-watering delicious foods contribute to the wonderful holiday energy we so cherish.
Right along with the enjoyable foods come the fragrances of the baked goods, the scented burning candles, the chestnuts roasting and the pine boughs. Somehow there is no finer smell than that of a freshly cut pine tree when it enters your home. That wonderful fragrance wafts throughout the house permeating even the furthest nooks and crannies. It brings with it the fresh smell of the great outdoors no matter what part of the country you live in.
Perhaps the easiest energy for most of us to observe is that of sight. The sights of the season are everywhere in colorful lights, symbols, clothing and food. For some of us the sights include a peaceful layer of new fallen snow and for others palm trees waving their hello covered with millions of little white lights. Each of these carry with it wonderful positive energy visions of the season.
It really is quite easy to carry with you throughout the year the wonderful energy of the holiday season by simply using any one of your five senses. They maintain a very full memory bank of all of the positive holiday energy you’ve experienced that is so abundant this time of the year. Simply observe it and save it in your memories to draw upon when life is more challenging and less filled with the abundance of this season. Use the abundance of positive energy now to bring about your desired results tomorrow.
