Life is a balancing act between work, home, money, health, relationships, and the added task of creating/taking part in that special ambiance and meaningful moments society attributes to the picture of the perfect holiday season.

Our diets go out the window as we indulge in special holiday delicacies, the tasks of preparing our space to create that beautiful holiday look, finding just the right gift for the special people in our lives, and finding increased extra time in our full calendars for family and friends all contribute.

Balance, the fine line between the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects in our lives becomes an elusive quality during this hectic time of year.

Many famous quotes speak of simplicity as the key to balance in life. Others state the fact that you don’t always need to be getting stuff done/Lori Deschene.

One of my favorite methods to let go during the holidays & connect to the wonder of the season is to take a moment to stare at a candle, firelight, or holiday light flame.

If using the candle flame, breathe deeply feeling your breath for a moment, next place a crystal in front of the flame to connect to the that crystal and explore what that particular crystal has to offer.

Green Aventurine is the stone of the physical body, rose quartz the stone of the emotional body, blue sodalite the mental body, and purple amethyst the stone of the spiritual body. Focus with these four stones to balance “The Master Blueprint” that each Soul possesses. If you desire to delve deeper find a crystal healer that can offer the Four-Color Healing technique to balance your energy or try a Chakra balancing to keep your Chakras, the centers for Divine communication, clear and balanced.
