Spirituality & The Holiday Season
A Magical time… A time when the possibilities for a deeper Spiritual connection to something greater than yourself is possible.
The season begins with the Kick off of Thanksgiving – a time for gathering, rejoicing in your Blessings of – Family – Friends – Health – as you give thanks and celebrate together. For many, it’s followed by the Ringing of Bells, songs of Carolers, the hustle to get cards finished and mailed, and gifts wrapped lovingly under the tree.
When you form a stable Spiritual connection, the stress of the Season feels more manageable. The Holiday chaos becomes less of a trigger, as life is more balanced and peaceful.
The purpose of the season is not to connect to others through the material matters in Life. But to connect to those you cherish with Love, Grace and Tolerance. Healthy Holidays are not only about the nourishment you receive through food, but the Spiritual Nourishment you command throughout the year.
“The winds of Grace are always blowing, we but need to raise our Sails.” Krishna
A time to remind yourself that when you embrace this season’s true meaning, you expand spiritually. Your experiences are more than the hectic splurge of spending, but of Giving.
Spirituality – Is not connected to one Belief System, it develops from your connection with a Higher Power and a loving relationship with others.
“To offer no resistance to Life is to be in a State of Grace, Ease and Lightness.” Eckhart Tolle
Remember the child-like delight of Magical Holiday Lights and decorations. The anticipation of the Magic of Christmas Eve that wrapped your wishes. Time to embrace the Season once again through the eyes of a Child, the Child that still lives in you! Still wanting to Play! Awaken your Child-Like belief tied in Magical bows!
The Spiritual Child that holds Grace close in their Heart, the Child in you without the Noise, and Distractions. May this be a time to inspire others, especially the children. May we show them how we are more United than divided!
A Magical gift for a Lifetime. For we are All the Stewards here to mold their young Hearts and Minds to the Oneness of Our World!
Your Family Connection
You are both Spiritually and Energetically connected to your Families. When you were just a Divine Spark in Spirit form you chose your Family, your Soul Group for the purpose of Soul Growth. You agreed to work through various situations and various family dynamics within these very relationships.
Understand there is a great deal of energy behind these relationships from the many lifetimes you incarnated together. Strong Family connections of lifetimes can add to the challenges of unresolved Karma, possibly why you were brought back once again together to resolve.
“It is through your Spiritual connection you Sense and Focus less on the unimportant, seeing the larger picture of Life’s true meaning.” Ann Mortifee
Family can bring a sense of Meaning and Purpose to one’s life, a feeling of belonging. That said, remember it’s Human nature to want to feel that you are seen, appreciated, and a special part of the family. There are those that are not the best communicators, as not All know how to express themselves in a positive manner, which can create high levels of discomfort.
Approach your special time together with a clear positive Mindset – take a deep breath, find a place of Peace and Love in your Heart.
…Remember – Laughter is the best Medicine!
“There is no greater gift of Trust than to be openly vulnerable.” Ann Mortifee
As you embrace a Spiritual dimension to Your life, you fill your Life with Meaning, a Sense of Purpose, whether your connection is through – Meditation – Religion – Or – Nature. Expressions of gratitude detoxify situations with the Gift of Grace. As Grace is our higher consciousness which enables us All to feel safe, loved and blessed to be alive.

Spirituality Is Individual
As you grow and explore, your Spiritual Life gains greater meaning, an enhanced connection between You and those you value. After all Life is about connections, relationships, lessons, and the love they bring to your Soul.
An improved connection to your Essential Self brings greater value to your life, and those around you. You become stronger as you realize how essential, living a Spiritual Life benefits your Spiritual, Emotional and Physical Well-Being.
Perhaps you find your Spiritual connection in a – Church – Synagogue – Mosque – or Nature Walks – know the Divine is within always. Volunteering to assist the needy is a beautiful way to connect, no matter what your Spiritual Beliefs may be.
“We are one with the Force that fashioned Creation. That which created All That Is flows through us as our essential Self. We have but to align with this essence for our life to be transformed.” Ann Mortifee
Do You Hear Your Soul’s Deep Longing?
During the season, take time in Self-Reflection, look deeper and discover how you wish to define your Spiritual Life.
- What are your Values, your Dreams in this precious Life?
- What Inspires and Moves your Soul?
- Are you Willing to Make the necessary changes to create that Life?
- Are you living from an attitude of Gratitude?
Keep a Journal of your discoveries as you Reflect Inward. Whenever you take time to reflect, you gain powerful insight, a beautiful opportunity for Soul Growth.
Expand Your Horizon
“There is a unifying inner current, a life force that flows in and through All things. It is this essential and conscious energy that binds all of life together.” Ann Mortifee
Tolerance is based on going beyond the superficial that often divides us, a deeper Journey of turning within to know our True Self. For our True Self is beyond the ego, it accept others, as you live from your Spiritual Heart with empathy for others needs. A heart of Grace, Patience, Peace and maturity develops to cultivate Wisdom.
Tolerance is the virtue that makes Peace possible, allowing others their personal freedom to have their own opinions. It allows you to respect others right to think without compromising your beliefs.
Allowing all to live in harmony with family and friends while maintaining your values. A beautiful gift to all children, teaching how can All learn and appreciate others ideas, other cultures, other families and others way of life. We live in multi-cultural times, making it critical for all to teach our children to be kind and inclusive of ALL!
- Nurture – Friendships that Support you
- Seek – Those with similar Values
- See – The Good in All
- Accept – Without Judgment of those in your Life
- Tolerance – Going beyond the superficial that divides
When you gain a clear concept of Your Spiritual connection, you are filled with a loving sense of Well Being that blankets you with Grace.
May the Christmas and Holiday Season remind you of the many Wonders of your Planet. Send Peace to all its Inhabitants with Blessings as you walk – Your Personal Spiritual Journey.
Let Grace fill All with the Magic of the Season.
