How to Cheer Up the Wonderful, Fantastic Christmas Spirit
The past two years illuminated everything but an easy feat. Matter of factly, we have endured a copious amount of pain, suffering, and tribulation. Our world will never be the same because of the magnitude of unprecedented, destabilizing circumstances. While we yearn for the comfort, safety, and nostalgia of home, the pandemic displaced our sense of meaning. Nothing resembles the world we once knew. Most of us lost someone special during this twenty-four-month interval. More people struggled, ranging from their mental health to their physical wellness. Thus, this article elucidates how to cheer up the wonderful, fantastic Christmas spirit:
- Excavate the Past Helpings
- Unleash All the Feelings
- Compound the Gratitude Effect
- Recreate What Christmas Means
- Embrace What Once Was
- Envision the Future Now
Excavate the Past Helpings
Indulging ourselves in the highest of the past sets the tone. Sure, doing everything in moderation is an intelligent, pragmatic mentality to adopt. Nonetheless, we can amplify the past when incorporating the formula that worked best before. If we did not have the most positive experiences, the present represents an opportunity to create a world supporting our highest vibration. After all, there is nothing wrong with treating ourselves to a buffet of bliss, euphoria, and weightless cheer and laughter every blue moon.
Christmas is the time to embrace the mountain and the valley time with ourselves and those we love the most.
Whatever excavates, we must embrace the process. The sight does not need to be beautiful to celebrate the art of our timeline. In other words, expressing gratitude for our progress cultivates fondness instead of rumination, eagerness instead of worry. If we need to cry our eyes out, perhaps this is one of the best ways to give our hearts a break. If immersing ourselves in our inner child sets us free, we must continue to excavate all the past helpings and then some. FEAST!!
How to Cheer Up: Unleash All the Feelings
Sometimes, we dread the holidays because we didn’t have a fortunate upbringing or culture. Other times, we harbor a cornucopia of negative emotions — we have not yet healed from the wounds we acquired since childhood. Still, being authentic with ourselves is necessary to accelerate the process of self-actualization and unconditional gratitude.
Indeed, bottling up our emotions manifests more harm than good. Learning to release our feelings constructively requires discipline, trial and error, and heartache. We spare ourselves unnecessary trauma when we learn from our mistakes and reflect on their significance. Again, postponing the inevitable intensifies the confrontations and heightens the amount of friction. Instead, we must sit in the passenger seat, letting our emotions drive us to a bittersweet celebration.
We don’t need to bury our emotions alive, throwing dirt on our wounds. We must unleash the feelings holding us captive and grief the invaluable scars we’ve obtained. Celebrating Christmas means plunging into the awareness we aren’t victims but victors. Getting our feelings out in the open allows us to move forward and cherish all that we’ve lost, gained, and become.
Compound the Gratitude Effect
Focusing on what works in our lives expands this reality. The same applies to focusing on what doesn’t work. Without a doubt, the world never ceases to tick — it doesn’t stop to accommodate our needs. The wheels turn indefinitely, developing new ways to operate in the innovative, dynamic, broadening world. Indeed, we must figure out how the world works for ourselves before applying this understanding to the affairs of others. We can’t control anybody but ourselves so starting with gratitude sets us on an optimal path.
Also, compounding gratitude goes further than Thanksgiving or Christmas. Incorporating gratitude into our daily lives cultivates healthy, sustainable, vibrant habits. Otherwise, we veer too far into the left field, losing our religion. Our emotions are valid, but we can’t keep complaining about our circumstances only to expect more conditions to be grateful. Instead, changing the narrative catalyzes the shift into a higher frequency. Gratitude transmutes us into a world of love, optimism, good vibrations, peace, and joy. After all, feeling rich accumulates to more than a potluck of watered finances.
How to Cheer Up: Recreate What Christmas Means
Finding people who grew up in a two-parent household where they felt safe is a stunning rarity. Nine times out of then, we’ve experienced Christmas holidays that left us feeling hollow, unfulfilled, and retching in cyclic agony. Furthermore, we conjectured how our loved ones could’ve raised us better. We fret over how much we lost from a household of beautiful dysfunction and distraught intentions.
Then again, we must pen the narrative aligning with the people we aspire to be. In the end, it’s neither our parents’ nor our fault why strongholds such as marriage didn’t pan out nor work too well. Life is not obligated to sugarcoat our emotions, our subtlest of reactions. Either way, we possess the power to create a life making us beyond happy and cheerful. Whether we utilize meditation, positive affirmations, decorations, music, delicious food, and the like, we are the answer to the Christmas spirit. Essentially, we must step into the light to embrace our identity as infinite co-creator. We are the power!!!
Embrace What Once Was
What does our Christmas day look like when we are at our pinnacle, surrounded by those who love us? What primary emotion emanates from our chest when we celebrate all the trials and tribulations influencing the sum of our parts? Do we ascend to a frequency of enlightenment and freedom when we express gratitude for the spectrum of experiences comprising our past?
That said, the best and the worst moments of our past transmute us into an improved version of ourselves. However, we inhibit the flow of our actualization when we ruminate over what we lost. What did we gain? Every experience enriches us with a plethora of wisdom, knowledge, and emotional intelligence. We must open our hearts and minds to celebrate the count down to our highest selves. No matter how much we try, we can never quite recapture the highs or the lows of our nostalgic, innocent, fresh, sweet, humble beginnings. Yet, we can love every version of ourselves — even from a distance.
Every elapsing second symbolizes elevation. Let’s feel the gratitude with our soul, cherishing our commitments and keeping our eyes unpeeled on the prize: the journey of our timeline. As such, that was then; this is now.
How to Cheer Up: Envision the Future Now
To reiterate, we encapsulate power. Nothing coming our way outweighs our capacity to conquer and transcend. When we feel depleted and hopeless, we consent to give all our power away. Our oppressors and stressors are weak without us — they are parasites; we are the host. Even if the world was ending, feeling lighter than a feather is possible. The poorest person contains the willpower to accumulate lavish wealth beyond their wildest dreams. The disenfranchised, minority groups breed more ambition than most, the insatiable thirst to achieve more.
Of course, exceptions to the rule emerge. We need to implement specificity regarding what we wish to manifest in our experience. The more we practice these visualizations, the more we attract the vibration and manifestation. Abraham Lincoln knew what he was talking about when he articulated how we predict the future by creating it in the present. Moreover, we lead with an advantage ever since unfortunate circumstances bless us with the foresight to eradicate what we don’t want.
As such, our manifesting powers are timeless. We commemorate the best Christmas spirit before it happens. We express gratitude for the shower of love, bundle of possibilities, and parade of thanksgiving to transform these blessings into our livelihoods.
How to cheer up the wonderful, fantastic Christmas spirit? Don’t we need to be we want to manifest and eat?
