The Law of Circulation--It Will Change Your Holiday Experience
This year I am "amping up" my practice of the universal Law of Circulation for the holiday season. The Law of Circulation simple states "As you give so you receive" or "What goes around comes around." It is a beautiful law that is always in operation and as an organizer coach it is one of my favorite and most practiced universal laws. It speaks to equality and balance. It represents a complete and never-ending circle of letting go and allowing.
During this season of giving and receiving you choose how you will practice this powerful law. One way you can practice it is to be in the act of pure, genuine, unconditional giving letting go of clinging and thoughts of lack. You choose to connect to the abundance and prosperity all around you. You choose to extend your true nature--love, joy, peace and generosity. In return it is reflected back to you and you are given an opportunity to see your own true essence. It becomes your mirror of truth.
You can also put this law into action by giving out negative energy in the form of frustration, overwhelm, resentment, obligation and cynicism. These are heavy lower level energies that weigh you down and will come back to you in kind. This is also a mirror for you.
You are human first and foremost and perfection is not required or even encouraged as you step into the willingness of practicing the holiday version of the Law of Circulation. If you choose to respond to the holidays from this perspective, it is imperative that you be accepting of wherever you are in the process. The moment you notice you're in a negative place choose to shift your attitude. Here are a few tips for practicing the Law of Circulation with all those wonderful holiday "opportunities":
· Holiday traffic—recognize any frustration and choose to extend love and joy to everyone on the road
· Lines at the store—recognize impatience and smile the moment you step into the line, hum a holiday song and extend gratitude to the clerk
· Gift wrapping— recognize tension and when the voice of "this needs to look perfect" shows up imagine the gift being unwrapped
· Holiday parties—recognize the voice of obligation and choose to say "no" to get-togethers that aren't as meaningful
· Holiday baking—if you catch yourself saying, "Where am I going to find the time for all of this?" recognize the voice of overwhelm and choose to let go of what isn't humanly possible.
· Gift buying—if you recognize a tug or a tension in your belly when you pull out the credit card or open your wallet, the gift you just bought is probably laden with thoughts of lack or obligation. Put it back and choose again.
These are just a few examples to get you started, but I think you get the idea. You are in charge of your holiday attitude one hundred per cent of the time! You choose how you will incorporate the Law of Circulation into your holiday routine. Are you ready to let go of how you've been approaching the holidays? Are you ready to "see" your Self as reflected back to you in the true spirit of giving and receiving?
Love To You,
