Living in the senses requires that we are more present, in tune with our body messages. So often we are caught thinking as we move about the world and miss so much stimulation that is occurring around us. We don't even notice our body sensations, hear things that are being said, see the textures and colors about us, smell the world or even truly taste what we are eating. We miss the present goodness in life by being run by the thoughts rambling about.
During the holiday season, the sensory stimulation is amped up! Sparkles and glitter everywhere. Lights, decorations, wrapping paper, colors galore, all is just calling us present. The food is spectacular often reminding us of days gone by. Walking into homes with delicious aromas of baking bread, cookies or some ceremonial meal just warms us. We get to eat such delicious hor de vours, meals and dessert that may not be around at other times of the year. We can revel in filled plates, cultural tastes, celebration drinks, all pleasurable as can be, if we truly notice. We touch others so much more. Hugs, smiles, toasts, deep conversations, time spend close to others. We hear songs playing where ever we go. Sounds of holiday, the salvation army bell, carollers, chatter of happy words, our ears filled with sounds. Love is present in it all.
Consider this time so known for love to be filled with such sensuality to bring us back to the textures of life. To let go of yesterday and tomorrow, be present with what bounty is before you, forgetting the small things that could irritate us or the self talk of hurry up and slowwwww down into the magic of the season. Love is so present in all these delights. It shows up in every form possible calling us to just revel, savor and enjoy what is truly right in front of us. We can relax, stop pushing ourselves with all these ideas of what should be and truly engage in what is.
As woman, we get to truly express ourselves in all ways. Our magic of transforming our sacred spaces into a wonderland that delights ourselves and all who enter is play and healing to ourselves. Cooking, wrapping, shopping, entertaining, chatter and nourishment, these are our greatest gifts of nurturing that fill us and others. Let go of the desires to push through and get everything done perfect as your mind sees. Just enjoy this process of creativity, be present in doing it and feel the joy of your most sacred gifts be expressed at this time of year. Slow down, be in the artistry and creativity and ENJOY doing it. We are the masters at this art of love and bringing it forward in all the textures and senses. We heal, transform and fill up doing these things when we are not pressured through this process.
And we get to sparkle ourselves as well! The creative artistry goes into our look if we choose! We the canvas with our clothes, adornments of jewelry and scarves. Make up, hairdos, glittery everything, beautiful footwear with boots or racey heals! Our finest gems can be seen, our biggest smiles and beauty glows. We feel beautiful like queens and princesses coming out to sparkle!
I invite you to realize the power of this time as the great gift of sensuality it is. To be present, to enjoy all the sensory stimulation around that woman create. To fully engage, revel and participate in it with all your heart for the love that is being expressed and offered. Let the stress go and see the blessing of healing creativity that soothes us all. Be loving of yourself as you do it knowing the healing and gift is in the doing not the things or how but in the process and intention. Ground into your body and enjoy. It is the most magic time that stimulates all of you. Notice, slow down, engage, be present, savor all the delights with all of your senses and receive of the blessing that is present in that.
