8 Ways of How to make the Holiday Season Stress-free


8 Ways of How to make the Holiday Season Stress free

By Peg Jones

It’s the week before Thanksgiving and we are in a panic because, we have to cook three apple pies and 3 vegetable dishes, cook two turkeys, get 20lbs of mashed potatoes ready for dinner at 3 pm, with 20 people coming to the house, and five will be staying with for three days.  And to add to all of this, to the every burning fire, you have to work till 4 on the day before Thanksgiving.

That was last week’s problem……..

The Thanksgiving Holiday is finished.

And as you looked at your calendar, the Monday morning after the just passed holiday weekend, you see that you have less than 4 weeks to plan and decide what the Christmas or Hanukkah  or other traditions, of the season,  plans and events will be the next 3- 4 weeks for this  very busy season.

You see the craziness of all that is supposedly expected on social and traditional levels.  The expectations of your children, young and old, friends and relatives, and finding the time to do the shopping, the baking and the going to the concerts, and all the activities that the children are involved in, at school, and church, or temple, and the adult parties that can be a bit cumbersome, and expensive.

It can get quite crazy, wild.  But does it really have to be this way..  ?

Sometimes making the season simple can be the easiest way for coping with the incredible amount of marketing, and all of its expectations.  Making it simple, fun, and creative is what I am feeling.  I need to suggest for having the holiday to be something you and all in your life to enjoy the holiday season.

Tradition is a big part of the holiday season, and passing down the traditions of food, social occasions and of adults and children can be hard to keep up.

Of course this is not the way for all of us but those with children, married or single,  and wanting to uphold the traditions you choose to share with them, can be rather crazy. Or if you have to cook for  a party or lots of people during the day of the holiday, having company during this time,  can be a challenging task too.

I asked Archangel Michael and Archangel Raphael, for some ideas on some main points to consider for this holiday season, to possibly make the season go a bit smoother with less stress…..Of course we have the weather to consider too, because inclement weather, can certainly change the plans for our holiday season.

The following are some points to ponder.

  • Make lists, of all you need to do. Take out your calendar, put in the kids social events and your events too, with or without your partner, and with friends..  The office parties, the neighborhood gatherings.  Then plan out shopping lists, for food and home decorations, in and outdoor..  And delegate, delegate.
  • Delegate tasks for home, tasks and include everyone that can help… Taking out the decorations and decorating can be a family activity over a weekend, and the same with cooking…  Preparing for the holiday food, can be delegated too,  to older children, who can cook or bake, or send them to the store for things you may need for the holiday… Also making homemade decorations for whatever holiday is being celebrated in the home is a good way to include all in helping the holiday be fun..
  • Planning a budget so that expenses don’t go to out of control is very important. Sticking to the plan is always a challenge, especially for those that have a kind heart, and want to make everyone happy….
  • Making your own holiday cards for those special in your life, can be done for those with older children. Making ornaments are also a fun thing to explore and research…  They look great on the tree or in a window, and make great gifts too.
  • Ten people are coming to your house on the day of the holiday, and you work or just very busy.. You can ask each person to bring a dish, or dessert for the meal and you cook the turkey, and a dessert or two,   Asking others to help is a good way to keep the amount of work down, and can help to keep all calm..  Also make some of the food ahead of time, such as dessert, and some vegetables or casseroles.  And ask for help too.
  • As for the gifts to be purchased, many buy all through the year, or buy gifts as they travel too.. OR you can make some gifts and start early to begin the projects, or to give to a charity of your choice.  There online shopping too and this can take time away from the shopping centers.  Make it simple, make it fun..
  • I remember days of watching relatives, and myself included of wrapping the day before Christmas, mountains of gifts, sitting in the bedroom away from the family activities all day.. Try wrapping as your purchase the items, or use bags, as this saves time for the laborious task of wrapping the gifts.  As others to help too..
  • How about the card list in sending cards to friend and relatives, and business associates… Can the list be cut down a bit this year? Do you have to really send cards to those you will be seeing on the holiday or in town?

The holidays are a time of community, and so many of us have this opportunity of being with those we love and cherish.  There are many that do not have this and the angels ask us to remember this, and to be kind to those who are with family or who are celebrating alone, for so many reasons, that I don’t need to write about.

I think keeping these people in mind. In giving them a call, or sending a card, saying hello, helping out at a charity or soup kitchen, or just lighting a candle and asking our higher power, to be with them, and to keep them safe for this time, if they do happen to be completely alone..

If appropriate you could ask them to a meal on the day of the holiday or before or after the holiday, just to let them know you are thinking of them.

We also have to respect that some choose to be alone too, and that is ok too.

I believe I have pretty much covered the main things to consider during the holiday coming up.

As light workers, this can be a season of great challenge for the people we work with and on a personal basis..  We need to be sure that we are grounded and protected safely so that we can do the work we share with others, and for ourselves and family, so that we too are able to enjoy the holiday time, if celebrated.  Or it’s just a time personal spiritual celebration, of our source..  Having our own traditions and celebrations are to be celebrated too and respecting all ways of others celebrating this season too…

2014 is leaving us  and 2015 is quickly coming towards us….

I just want to say that the next month is a time of joy and peace for all and to know, that whatever difficulties maybe come about this time,   your angels are with you always  Especially, when you ask them for assistance… Asking them for help and trusting they are there for you, will help you to see how much the angels do want to help you today and always..

Having positive intent in all that you do,

Will keep you, from feeling a always so blue.

Helping your fellow man, in some special way,

Will help them carry on, throughout their day.

Going the extra mile and helping with a smile,

Will help you to share, and show you care.

If life gets tough and it’s hard to cope,

Know the angels are with you

we will guide you on your slippery slope.

When asking your angels for guidance, and telling them your woes,

 Know we are listening and offering you a rose.

The rose signifies love and the strength that you possess,

Listen closely to our whispers and know you are very blessed.”

Angelic Guidance for all


 

Tonight I have asked the angels what they want to share with all of you.  I have a few thoughts and so I am going to just share what they are, and what I feel the angels want to share with us on this.

The years, that I have worked with people, in offering angel readings, with or without cards, or mentoring through life and spiritual life coaching, I have come to see a few misconceptions other have, concerning what the angels are able to share with us.  One of the biggest misconceptions is that the angels are fortune tellers and can predict the future.

The angels say this is very much a misunderstanding, of what their capabilities are.  The say they will guide you, through a decision, or goal that you may have for yourself.  They may bring you to the right people in your path, and they may share many insights through music and through the radio or television.  They may bring you to people who you need to meet to help make your goal or a decision to come to fruition.  However, it is up to us to notice, and see these signs, as we go through our day.

Not only will they help us reach our goals, they are also, our protectors and they are our healers, too.  They will speak to us, through small warnings, such as we may hear “Slow Down” as we are driving in our car, or we may hear our name being called; when we know that no one is near us, or in our house.  So as we start to notice the synchronicity within our lives, on a daily basis, we see that their protection and helping us on our path, is a way of empowering us to pay attention to the little things in our daily life.  It’s almost as if they help to steer and empower us to do the next best thing and to hold onto the dream, or goal, we may want to have manifested.  As psychics or intuitive and mediums we get these questions so many times,

”When will I get a job”?

“When will I start a relationship”?,

Which are pretty mainstream questions, as far as asking about the future.

As for the questions that are pretty mainstream, the answer I hear from the angels is, “What part have you taken to make this happen, and have you started to become empowered with a plan, to make this goal, or wish, or dream to come true?  Or if it’s a question of pursuing a relationship, that could be harmful for all parties, and is this a wise decision?

But then there have been times when someone, has asked something not too mainstream, such as:

“Will the married man who I work with, become my new boyfriend”?

As for a question like that, we hear and know this is not to be something of integrity or of good intention.  As readers, we have the quandary of how to help the person to understand the harm, or lack of positive intention.  We see this and we know the angels have a definite opinion on this, yet we have to be completely neutral.  Many times I have felt I was being asked to say to the person, “You know what the truth, of the answer, of this situation,  and you are wanting for me, the person doing this reading for you, to say its fine, go with your heart.”    I am hearing that at this time that you do know the answer and of all of the implications of this decision, if you decide to go ahead with this decision.

The angels believe in free will and they will not interfere in any way, until we invite them into our life.  A thought, I have and often say this to others, when coaching or doing an intuitive reading, is that when you have an intention or goal or wish, is to invite the angels to help you with this, as long as it is for your highest good.  As you are doing the pondering and planning for your goal or decision and happy with your decision or goal then know the angels will help you in every way.

The angels talk a lot about prioritizing the goals of all we have for ourselves.  So we have our goals and hopes and dreams.  Sometimes all of what, we want to do, or have to do, can be very overwhelming for us.  The angels ask us to prioritize all that we have to do.  We can ask for assistance, for what needs to be accomplished, and how to prioritize all that we want to do.  The angels ask us to always to understand, that when something we may want, doesn’t come to us in a timely manner, if it is for our highest good.  They talk to us of Divine Timing and that Divine Timing is not our understanding of timing.  They say there are many reasons for this, lack of patience and also and most importantly, is that there are parts of our journey that we have to fully understand.

When we are ready to move on, the milestone will be made.  We can then, move on to the next part of our journey.  They like to remind us of the aspects of the journey and events we experience each day. In that the goal is not as important as the experiences we encounter each day, through the people we meet and the synchronicity taking place toward our goal and dreams and decisions.  When we have a decision to make and it’s very important to us to make this decision, the hardest part sometimes for many is making the actual decision, because we want to make the decision that is best for us.  An example I can think of as far as myself is when I wanted to move back with my husband from where were living before. We hemmed we hawed with indecision for a few months.  I looked to the pros and the cons of reasons for moving, or not moving back. Then I started sending out resumes, to the area we wanted to come back to.  We started looking at places to live, in the area we were in and where we were thinking of moving back to. We weighed the pros and cons through this process and then in time we began to see exactly what we wanted to do.  It was as if the decision was made for us within a few weeks. We made the decision to move back to our previous area and all came together, when the decision was finally made.

The angels say to make the decision and we, your angels will help the plans to come together.

In the time, I have been on my spiritual journey for the past ten years, I am amazed in the help we have available to us, within our universe.  We have our guides, and we have our angels, and we have our animal totems and the elementals and of course our Source of all, whom we on the earth plane call GOD, Allah, Buddha, Great Spirit.  We are never alone no matter how much we may feel this way at times. Sometimes it’s the pain we may be feeling or the loneliness we may be feeling, or anger or other things that may close us off from recognizing this reality of all in the universe to help us.  We all want to be happy and empowered, and to live our life in a way that is positive and helping us to help others too.  No man is an island we are all one and the angels want us to help us to help ourselves…  For the angels or spirit to predict something in our life, is very difficult.  We have free will as others do too.  So much can happen.  But one thing the angels do say and that is to know they want to be there for us to help us to make the decisions we need to make and to help us to heal with all in the universe.

They also remind us that we are coming to remember why we are truly here and that we as humans all have the ability to develop our connections to all in the universe for this guidance.

Remembering and developing spiritually is a journey of a life time and we never stop learning.  Milestones are made and we start on a new dream or path, each one building on the other, to help us to become who we truly are.

We all know there are many factors as to why we are all at different points of our spiritual path and awareness too. Some have this awareness all their lives.  Others are just becoming aware, and that is fine too.

What I written about the angels can be said for in the universe, our guides, our loved ones, and all else there too.  For me personally, I was introduced to the angels and guides and even loved ones at a time in my life when I was truly searching for answers.  I have loved every moment of my spiritual journey, and I think every day, this is just the tip of the iceberg in my learning.

So in closing, I would like to say that our angels are not fortune tellers or predict the future as also our guides, loved ones, animal totems or our Higher Power or anyone else in our universe.  They will help and guide and but will predict in any way.  And one fine message: enjoy the journey and know that the answers are there for you to access, at all times.

Angelical Whispers, angel message for December 2012

I cannot believe it will be December of 2012 very soon. This year has gone by really fast. There have been a lot of interesting things happening this past year, for everyone living on the earth plane.  We have had times of great happiness and times that have brought much sadness or times being feeling worried.  We have explored times of great inspiration and times of feeling sad or angry.  When I ask the angels about this last year, this is what they say to me, about this.

Asking Archangel Raphael for healing and Archangel Michael for protection will help to heal the stress that you may be feeling at this time. Also giving your worries to the Universe is a way that we can surrender our will and letting the universe help you more.  As a human I know when I put my demands on the universe for things to happen on my time schedule, that is when I meet with trouble.  I am dealing with my time clock and it is expected to happen at the time I want it to happen.   Now there is nothing wrong with our ego, as it is protecting us but sometimes it goes about protecting us in a roundabout way.  We seem to talk big out of our head and forget that the heart place is where we truly get heard from the universe.  The heart place is where your angels are and where you have your guides too, It is where you feel love not only for yourself but for everyone around you.. Its where you take notice of another’s pain or joy, happiness and gladness.  You make room for others in your heart.  And you make room for the most important person in your life and that is you.   You have no judgment in your heart and jealousy doesn’t exist there either.  The heart place is your direct connection to all in the universe.   There you will learn how the universe can help you.   You learn to let the universe show you the way on your path.

This year has shown me, that the universe is truly with us, even in time of illness and other issues that can occur.  Doing the footwork, and working with the universe is so crucial in helping us to find our heart place.  Our angels are around us and they respect us and will not interfere into our lives unless we ask them for help.  They work swiftly and not always how we expected a situation to be solved.  We can be given situations that are difficult only to learn that we have come out of the situation in a most positive manner.  I have found these situations help us to appreciate all that we have in our life and all who we have as family and friends in our life.  The angels have helped me to appreciate the big things and the little things in our lives.  The angels love us so much, and when we know this to be true, we start to see the many ways that they do care.  They remind us again to be aware of the synchronicities in our lives.  Each occurrence has a special meaning.  Living in our heart place we will begin to understand love and peace in our heart.  We will see the true meaning of life and the true meaning of love for ourselves and for others too.  Angel Blessings to all of you.  I wish all of you a very Happy Holiday and a wonderful year in 2013.

Angelical Whispers, Angel message for November 5, 2012


Angelical whispers, Angel message for November 5,  2012
The angels are asking each of us to take the time each day to think of what we are truly grateful for in our lives.   They have been telling me that we forget the little things that are truly a blessing in our lives.  It seems to me them that we get caught up in our lives and we focus what seems to be bringing us down in how we feel and think..   of course many may have had a tragic event in their life that was catastrophic but a positive to the situation could still be found…..Some times that is really difficult and to read  that we need to find the positive in the situation can really hit us the wrong way.  But if we look really hard we can find it … and when we do this we can find at least one thing to be greatful for…..The angels say when this practice is used we begin to do this automatically and our sense of being does change easier…So when you find this  happening and you feel that there is nothing to be grateful because look a little deeper…..deep into  your heart…… and ask the angels for help with this too…….  They will be there for you ….. will help you to find something positive……And then you will say of course,  gee never thought of that …..  I wish you all angel blessings today and always..
