Holding It Together

Susan Guner


The holidays may be challenging to cope with as it carries the most intense spirit of the year. It is a confrontational time that breaks us the most and can be painful for many. Also, we need to be super mindful of how it brings up a lot of suppressed trauma to the surface.

The slowness of this time of the year can also trigger self-worth issues due to a lack of productivity. Remember to observe your inner discomfort and breathe through it.

And avoid making big decisions; this is not a time of the year to make life-changing decisions. Observe your tendencies and do not act on them; just breathe through the notions of your impulses.

Be super conscious of your fragility around this time of the year and your attempts to distract yourself; it’s a call to reflection, introspection rather than action. It’s a call to be with whatever comes up and breathe with it.

Wishing you all a transformative new year with more humility, more courage, more resilience, more inner capacity, more breakthroughs, realisations, insights in this ever-unfolding soul journey to find more joy, healing, health, connection, kinship, community spirit and abundance.

Please keep trusting the process.

Happy new year!

Love and Courage
