This will be my last message this year. You deserve a break and so do I. It’s been a very busy year, and I appreciate you hanging in there with me. If you have clicked through on the majority of my messages, I really do thank you for your loyalty and hope they have helped you in some way.
Those of you who have been with me for a while won’t need to be reminded to do the necessary forgiveness work prior to getting together with your families over Thanksgiving and the other holidays. For those of you who have joined us more recently, I do feel obliged to say something about it.
We all know what happens: You get together with the family, and all the old unresolved issues come racing to the surface. Before you know it everyone is having a bad time. To prevent this from happening to you personally, even if everyone around you is melting down, check in with yourself to see if there is some forgiveness work you can do prior to the holiday get-together. Use a free worksheet or better still, one of the online programs. We have them for parents, siblings, and kids, as well as partners. It will make a huge difference, believe me.
If you are traveling to visit family, take a few worksheets with you – not only the Radical Forgiveness Worksheet but the relatively new Acceptance Worksheet as well. Its purpose is to help you accept someone the way they are, and that will make a big difference in your holiday experience. These and many more available in Colin’s Cafe. Registration is required.
Don’t say you haven’t been warned and advised! When you hear from me in the New Year, I will mention it again in case you didn’t take my advice… you may find yourself in need of some relief after you have said goodbye to your family.
Here’s what you can look forward to, when you’ve successfully leaped the holiday hurdles… New Year’s Resolutions. Come January 1st, I will begin a series of messages about Radical Manifestation. If you use this method of creating consciously, you will stand a much better chance of manifesting what you want.
JoAnn will be home in the U.S. for Thanksgiving, but I will still be in England most likely. I will be home for Christmas, though, and after cooking up a storm for Christmas dinner we will do what we do most years… go to a movie.
Whatever you are doing to celebrate your own special holiday, I hope you have a great time. Until 2014, then, Goodbye and Namaste.
