Reflections Of The Holiday's

With the Holiday's among us we reflect on those that are no longer with us. Weather it be a loved one who has passed away or a close friendship or relationship that is no longer existent. The holiday's seem to have a way of bringing these losses to the surface once again for us to reflect upon. Did we do what we needed to do or do what we were suppose to do? Did I make the right choice? Where would I be now if that did not happen? How would it be for that deceased loved one now if they never actually passed away? So many questions and thoughts sometimes overwhelm us during the holiday season.

This also has a lot to do with the year coming to a close and our frequent reflections upon the good & unfortunately more frequently the bad things that we have experienced throughout the year. How unfortunate it is that many of us reflect more on the negative then on the positive. Maybe that is because we are surrounded by so much negativity in the world and many of us are sensitive and walk around wide open so that this negative energy can attach to us. It is not always our fault & sometimes we may not even be aware of that negativity for ourselves.

During this time of the year we should equally reflect on the good and the bad. We need to do this so that we can recall the lessons that our experiences have taught us so that we can therefore grow spiritually. There is a lesson attached to just about every experience in our lives. At times you have to go through the bad in order to get to the good. This is the circle of life as we go from lifetime to lifetime.

We need to put our differences aside and make this a time of the year to reconcile our indifference's and start off the new year on the right note. The holiday's are the perfect time for making things right once again. If you reach out and try to reconcile an indifference with a friend or loved one and they continue to turn their back on you, then you should know the lesson that is in front of you. Sometimes we need to come to the understanding that some friendships, even with family members, have to come to an end. If a person is not willing to be a part of your life once again or fix the broken pieces, then who really needs someone like that in their lives anyway. Move on and know that you did everything you could to fix it and now the karma is all on them. The past is called the past for a reason. It is done and over with and we need to just leave it in the past as it will help to make our present and future much brighter.

During the holiday's our deceased loved ones are with us very strongly. Going from one loved one to another comforting us with their energy to help us get through the times. They do their best at sending us signs in many different forms. Whether it be a flicker of the lights or a special holiday song on the radio. Be assured that they are at peace in Heaven and smiling down upon us during the holiday season. Know that they want us to be happy and live our lives to the fullest. They will never judge us and will support us in anything we do or any path we choose to walk. Feel their love this holiday season and allow that love to take you into the new year. Thank you all for allowing me to share my gift and experiences with you over the years. Each and every one of you are a true gift to me and to the world in which we live. May your holiday's be filled with love & joy and may your new year be a happy, healthy and prosperous year. Many Blessings To You All.....Joseph
