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.”

Boston Town, My kind of Town


Boston Town, My kind of Town

By Peg Jones

Living in your heart place helps you to see and feel things in a different light. It is a way to help to feel life in a more positive way and to stay in that place more easily.  The angels always ask me to imagine the color of my heart place. Today my colors in my heart place are purple and white.  There are different shades of purples, lavenders and the white whirled in with the purple.   So I guess maybe spiritually I am in a good place at this time. 

The past few weeks have been a bit difficult for the people of Boston and the surrounding area.  It was a very scary and upsetting time for so many here. My husband works in Boston, fortunately not in the part of where the Boston Marathon was held.  He was one of the lucky ones and safe from harm.  He got home safe that night too. 

In previous years I would be at the Marathon walking down Boylston Street without a worry as I passed the finish line. It was a time for families to be together and in greeting their loved ones.  Or there would be people just standing and watching with friends and family, cheering on the participants.  The care free feeling of being in Boston on that gone has gone; there will always be a bit of fear for the others, who will be watching the race.   But we are Boston Strong and the Marathon will go on, that I have no doubt about.  I wrote a poem about the event and thought I would share it with all of you.

Boston Strong

Angels are with us, helping us to heal.

Letting us know of how they feel

 To help us to go on, no matter the deal.

They sing to us from on high,

 They help us to understand the truth and what could be a lie.

They ask us to trust their healing each day,

How we need to be helping others in so many special ways.

You could say a prayer and or sing a song of healing,

You could smile at a stranger or talk to others of how they may be feeling.

We come together to pray for peace

 And hope for the calm to always increase.

Life is full of lessons and of hope

Yet we know our angels are helping us to cope

We ask our leaders to work together always so the truth is always found.

Life has changed for the people of Boston, because of some past events on the ground.

Know that we are from Boston, full of strength and that we are very sound

Dear angels, we ask that our town stay always safe from harm,

Thank you for your love and the strength of your strong arm.

Angelical Whispers, Angel Message for December1, 2012


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 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.

  Let peace comes to those who are feeling some inner turmoil at this.  Please understand that the energies at this time are very powerful all on the earth plane. This year every one feels the pull of the universe. We are behind one eclipse and another one is coming really soon on the 28th of November.   Hold on tight dear ones.  Hold on with all your might.   The angels are very close to the earth plane now. Helping those that are having a difficult time.  If you can try to help those that may need a word of encouragement, a kind word or they might need some specia prayers for themselves or loved ones.  Being respectful of all whom you come into contact withis a good way of spreading peace and kindness to all you see.  If there is a moment that seems difficult and you can hard bear at this particular moment,  try with all your might to think what you can truly be grate ful for    when u do this then realize how blessed you truly are…Enjoy who you spend with during your day and know all is fine…  Letting the universe know you are ok in your time of being so very grateful will help to ease the crazinenss.  The universe, our angels, guides and loved ones are with us always..  Reach out and know they are there for you . We leave u with this to ponder. Let the rainbows in the sky clear the tears of the pain so that you will see the sunshine that shines brightly in your heart of love.  Love Archangel Raphael.

Angel Message for September 2, 2012


Angelical whispers, angel message of September 2,2012.
What color is today for you. Is it a blue day or is it a green day where you work from your heart. Working from your heart means that the angels are with you. They are sharing your joy as they always do. Working for your heart, the joy is automatic. The clarity of knowing that the angels are with you and the cloud of pain and despair is no longer there. For when we are in our heart place the joy and peace and of course love is there for us. We feel protected and we feel the love of the universe and of others. We know that this is true because of our joy and clarity of where we are and where we are going. We ask for the inspiration of knowing what is happening on our path. We learn to take each step at a time and to know that it’s the journey that is important not the destiny. Thank you dear Angels for being with us always.

Humor with the angels


In the year and half that I have been working with the angels on almost a daily basis,  it has come to me that the angels aren’t always serious in their communication.   They truly like to laugh and they like us to laugh along with them.  Sometimes they make fun of themselves in a way that makes us understand their message a bit more easier.  The other day I had heard a message about symbols and there were three symbols mentions: butterflies, and  rainbows, and moonbeams. This is the message, I had received:

The angels want to know we also have a sense of humor and a lot of our messages are given with a sense of humor.  For laughter and joy are so good for you. When using you sense of humor you feel much lighter and you feel that you may even begin to smile or laugh out loud.. We are all for laughing out loud too. It clears our mood and we feel understood, even if it is a bit silly at times.  We ask you to not be afraid to let the humor come through..  We love to laugh too and laugh with you too. May your angels on the moonbeams be with you in the form of butterflies as they fly through the rainbow today.      Angel blessing to all.

It’s not slapstick comedy but it does make you smile. I feel they do use their sense of humor to help us keep things  a bit  lighter.  And not to be so serious all of the time.  There is a lot going on in our world,  and a lot of it is very serious for us to be concerned about. I feel they like to help us not to  feel all the heaviness that has been around all of us, lately.

I had asked the angels the many ways we can keep things a bit lighter for us.  They had some really good ideas too, for all of us to consider.

  • Read a book that is funny or try writing a funny story
  • Be with children and just play with them, be silly like they are being silly
  • Write about the something that was really funny to you at the time
  • read a book of jokes
  • watch comedians perform that you enjoy listening to .
  • Watch movies that are funny to you
  • Being with old friends and having good conversation the kind that has you laughing for hours
  • Cleaning your house to music like the oldies songs.. The house will get cleaner a lot faster.

The angels state that to be in a continually depressed or blah mood  is not good for anyone.   Looking to partake events that  lift your mood is a way to keep life in balance.  The angels want to say that they love helping and seeing us smiling  and laughing.. Let your inner child come through. So many of us forget what the inner child is truly like..  The inner child may be sad or angry or hurt in some way but he secretly wants to be happy, and forgiving.  Let your inner child come out gracefully and let him feel what its like to laugh,  and to be child like again.

The angels are not talking about being irresponsible or mean, they are talking about letting the sadness or the hurt or what is making your heart heavy to lift it with doing an activity where you find yourself smiling again.

I know for me when i am feeling heavy about something,  the last thing i want to do is to be in an activities that are full of humor or being silly. So I find myself to have time for me, like reading a favourite book or listening to soothing music. or meditation for a short time.  This time regroup helps me to become more of who I am and much more willing to let my inner child out a bit more.. Taking care of  yourself is most important.  Letting yourself laugh, a really big belly laugh makes the angels really happy because they know how happy you are.

They say to be deprived of laughter or humor can be very disheartening. They say laughter in many ways is food for the heart and humor can help you to move forward in a way that is positive for you .
