‘Twas The Night Before Christmas”

By Clement Clarke Moore

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

“Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of Toys, and St Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.
A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.

His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!”

Accepting gifts… December 16, 2011

I wrote about “Giving” in my last blog post… But with every giver there must be a receiver, that’s the way the Universe works: Reciprocity.  And for life to remain in balance we must have balance between the two.  If we give more of our energy to just one then life and the Universe will become unbalanced.  If we want to be a giver we also must be a receiver with JOY and GRATITUDE!  So when someone gives you something as innocuous to you as a compliment, but how do you receive it?  With a resounding thank you or a retort?  How do you accept gifts? What do you feel/think when it happens?  How able to simply say thank you with genuineness? If we balk at something received or give with obligation we add to the imbalance of things.

What kind of receiver do you want to be this season? Being able to say an emphatic “Thank You!” is a wonderful start to gift receiving. There will be a never-ending stream of abundance coming from you and to you!  As I say , “Thank You!” to you for taking time to read this post!! How wonderful is this time of year as a reminder of gift giving and our own personal gifts!

How can you make it last throughout the year?

Being Uncomfortable November 26, 2011

I understand that many people have differing view points on our thoughts and the power they hold. I myself have been a fan of the quote, “Thoughts become things… so think the good ones” (tut).  I Totally believe this belief.  That said that doesn’t mean that I ignore the  uncomfortable feelings when they come up and they most certainly will with most people.  It’s only natural!  They’re there for a reason: to educate, to illicit questioning and to open our eyes.  I believe that if we acknowledge what’s going on and process it, we can then move past it.  Ultimately make a choice.  Do I want to be upset, angry or whatever the feeling/feelings may be?  Do I want to hold on to this catabolic emotion so that it can have power over me? OR am I chosing the healthier more anabolic feelings?  What quality of life do I chose?   I know for one that it’s very important to understand where our feeling originate.  Being uncomfortable is there so that it can teach you something. And as we know every opportunity is an opportunity to learn.

What do you choose?

Hope… November 22, 2011

I blogged over a year ago where I had a song attached by my friend Blu Sanders.  Somehow it’s coming back around with everything that is going on, on our planet: Tragedies at our Universities, Occupy Wall Street (Where people aren’t listening) and Big business atrocities.  The song is called World without hope and there’s no way I could keep going without it! Remember that the more you focus on something the more you have!!

So know that there is hope and we as people can continue to make a difference if we hold it close.

Finding Fun! November 14, 2011

I know that at the beginning of a relationship finding fun is a no brainer.  Everything we do is fun and new and exciting! In some cases just reading the telephone book together is an awesome thing because… let’s face it. It ‘s NEW!!!  But what happens years into the relationship when the bills are calling and the kids need something and you are overworked…. How do you find time to allow for the intimacy and carve out some time for fun…?  So do you make a date night that’s sacred? Do you lock the door and have the kids watch a movie??? Go for a walk somewhere you have never gone before?  Do something new!

 

These moments are integral in fostering the intimacy between two people.  If everything else comes before the two of you, you will lose contact and forget the reason you are even together in the first place.  When life gets ahead of you as it most certainly will, Stop and ask yourself, “What is going on for me right now?”  Bring yourself back into the moment and ask if you are living as authentically as you can, as connectedly as you can and as fun as you can. By taking a deep breath in through your nose and out your mouth you will center yourself.  Then you can ask yourself not only what you need, but what you want in that moment.  For when we lose the fun in our lives (no matter where we are, in or out of a relationship) life loses it luster.  So go out and PLAY!! Carve out some time in your crazy schedule for some silliness!

So I have been working on a seminar for December…. That said I’ve titled it, “10 Steps to a Healthy Relationship!” I wondered if the titled seemed to trite but each point has myriad discussion topics.  Which got me thinking… What are your important guidelines to a healthy relationship? What do you need in order to facilitate good communication? Let’s talk! What is your healthy relationship like? And more importantly where is your relationship being blocked and how do you need help? Where can we, together let the flood gates open to a Wonderfully supportive relationship?

How do you unplug? October 26, 2011

As I sit here listening to the clock tick and the birds chirp, I wonder how do people unplug?  We, myself included run around during our day strapped to our phone.  Not but 10 years ago we were able to leave our home/office and be relatively untethered.  But now between texting, IM’ing, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, LinkedIn or any social media for that fact (along with all the different  pieces of technology we use) we undergo a barrage of static energy.  For our business and our relationships to work we have told ourselves this is how it needs to be.  But I want to know: What do you want it to be?  How can we find that happy medium where our business and intimate relationships can thrive? How can you unplugged? Turn off? Put down and walk away from this stimulus?

You know how when your on vacation and you decide to turn off your phone and computer it can take at least a few days to realize that you aren’t running late for something? You know that feeling: “I know I should be doing something”.  How do you allow it to dissipate?  It amazes me how long it takes that anxious feeling to go away and it’s even stronger when you work for yourself! What can you do to unplug, step away and put down the gadgets?  Is it taking a walk… without them? Meditate? How do you give yourself permission to not respond?  I have really been enjoying getting out in nature and going for a walk… Heaven.  This stress level can and to myriad illnesses as we know. So let’s start a dialogue on what we can do to let in the air, Love and space!

What do you do?
