As we head into the New Year there is one question you really need to be asking yourself. “Is your cup Empty or Full?” Unless you are in the perfect state of bliss with everything working harmoniously in your life and you feel completely fulfilled, it is time to empty some of the contents of the cup. You won’t be able to draw any beneficial energy if there is no room for it to occupy in your life.
So, what’s in your cup? Have you been stalling your life without realizing it? If you have been holding onto hurt, anger, lack of forgiveness, and regret, you have been subconsciously sabotaging your happiness. The space that those emotions occupy in life are keeping more positive and fulfilling vibrations from entering your life. Every action in your life happens, how much value you place on an individual occurrence is entirely up to you. Sometimes it is not enough to just forgive, you need to truly let it go, which falls into the place of forget. When an event no longer holds strong emotion, it drifts into the background and gets mingled with all the other happenings in life, fading away into the gestalt of daily events. Strong emotions tend to cement feelings and emotions with a particular event making it more difficult to release. If you find you are having trouble letting go of an old wound or hurt, try this simple exercise to help you get started on releasing the pain and making room for more happiness and fulfillment.
Free up the blocks of energy keeping you from Happiness
You will need:
Palo Santo Stick or Smudge Charcoal & Reiki Blend
Selenite Gemstone or form
Chalcedony Necklace (this is optional but works very well at subtly releasing energy without pain or creating an energy hole)
Lava Stone (if you feel overwhelmed/engulfed by strong emotion/anger and cannot focus because of it.)
Light your palo santo stick, cone, or wear the oil. If using the charcoal method, light charcoal until it is hot and add a little of the reiki blend. Smudge yourself and your environment. Now that the scent is permeating in your area you are ready to begin. If you are using the chalcedony pendant, wear it, if you need the lava stone hold it in your hand. Think about an area or issue in your life that you need to let go of. Write a few key words representing it on the parchment using the black marker. Hold the selenite gem in your hand or over any area that feels tight or emotional until it clears. Feel the emotion connected to the event or issue and use the selenite to dissolve it. Understand that whatever the event or issue was, it is not only over and, in the past, but it has taught you a lesson in some way. Perhaps it gives deeper insight into yourself, or maybe it enables you to help others who experienced a similar thing. Use the event to stimulate wisdom and knowledge in your life but release its energetic hold on you. Take the piece of parchment and burn it in the charcoal or the flame from the palo santo stick. As it burns say “I break any energy connecting me with (the event/issue). I am free and clear of all attachments and allow only love and light into my life. I am whole and complete” Do this for each issue. When you are done, and the ashes have cooled scatter them to the wind. You may not be able to work through everything in one sitting, that is fine. Work at your own pace until the last bit that is taking up room in your cup is gone. Now you are ready to fill it with all the joys and pleasures life can bring. Have a Happy Healthy, New Year!

Some will automatically know how to spot the perfect heart felt gift, but others may have trouble knowing where to begin. If you are the latter here are three simple steps to help you.
Step 1: Identify the core need (try to figure out the root energy that would best embody what the person needs/desires the most, for example if the person fears change, then perhaps a gift that will aid in building confidence)
Step 2: Think about how the person will use the item. For example, if the person is not active and doesn’t like physical activity, a gift membership to a confidence building martial arts class may not have the effect, you desire.
Step 3: If possible personally select each aspect/part of your gift. (if your gift has several components and you are making up individual kits then try to select each part while visualizing the recipient). The fact that you have put your time energy and thought into each selection will make your gift so much more impactful.
For Loneliness – Gift of Self Love, create a gem sampler with an adjustable gem holding necklace and a message about each gem energy. Add an anti-loneliness oil and perhaps a gift certificate to an activity or class.
Self Esteem – Hair salon, massage, Rose quartz gems with pink candles and incense.
Love – gift certificate that gets the person out and involved in a group activity (best chance to create opportunity to meet the right person). Add a gem for courage, and stress relief if they are anxious or fearful
Financial Security – Perhaps a stock and a magazine for entrepreneurs, and a bloodstone (success stone).
Anti-depressant – Uplifting and antidepressant oil blend or incense, burner, humorous book.
Good Fortune – Lucky rubbing stone or keychain, money drawing candle, good luck oil, and a few quick pick lottery tickets.
If you are handy in the kitchen, why not make a cookie that embodies all the wishes for each recipient? You can add it to your package as a tag or bake a bunch and place them in a special tin. Make a gingerbread cookie as the spices have properties of good fortune and protection.
Use color energy to decorate each cookie. Green – (Good fortune & Health), Red – (Love, Passion, Action), Blue – (Spiritual, Stress Relief, Justice), Yellow (Happiness), Pink (Compassion, Love), Orange (Creativity, Positive Change), Brown (Home, family), Purple (Psychic, Pain relief), White (Spiritual, clearing), Black (protective).
Add a decorative piece a paper with a handwritten description of the cookie’s energies.
WRAPPING & CARDS:
Increase the sentiment of a holiday card or gift by adding aromatherapy. In a large container with a lid add a few drops of essential oil or Charmed in Company’s Happy Holiday oil. Scent your wrapping paper and cards by placing them in the box, adding the oil to either a cotton ball or if the box is cardboard directly to it, allow to dry, place objects in box, close lid and let sit a week or until you wish to send or use them. Each object will retain the scent of the oil and add a new dimension to your gift giving.
The best gift of all are those found in the warm memories of the times you spend together. Have a Happy Holiday!
