Visit a Christmas market, go for a coffee or take a trip back to your childhood christmas moments. It only takes a Christmas visualization…
START WITH THREE DEEP BREATHS
I thought I’d start this podcast with a Christmas visualization, rather than keeping it for the end. It’s a nice way to separate what you’ve been doing until now, and the present moment to enter this experience with me.
Christmas, especially as adults, is a matter of memories and what we’ve associated the holiday with. So if you think about it, it’s extremely personal and unique. This is why I preferred to leave plenty of space for your thoughts, memories and feelings about Christmas, rather than painting for you a picture out of a fairytale. (Even though it’s so much what I was compelled to do!)
THE MAGICAL VISUALISATION IN the first episode Is one of my favorites, CHECK IT OUT IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY!
THE CLASSICAL CHRISTMAS
When I think about Christmas the most vivid images I have are… book illustrations! And I don’t even remember the book, or the story. I only remember looking at the image so deeply, feeling like I’m in there. The whole picture was warm and cozy, with wooden furniture a table full of goodies, a fireplace with a big, seemingly calm fire. And of course the star of the show, a big richly decorated tree, with colorful ornaments and lights and a few retro presents underneath. Sometimes, when I close my eyes there is also a little girl with red hair and freckles. She has a beautiful light blue bow in her hair and I can only see her cheek and part of her nose. She has her back turned to me, because she’s looking at the Christmas tree.
I love this image, but I have no idea where it came from. So you could say it has nothing to do with me and any Christmas I’ve experienced. So I’m following the visualization too, and I’ll see where it gets me…
Until next time, take care and Merry Christmas!
