The holidays are over, and some of you may be dealing with the reverb that can come from being around family. I remember hearing Eckhart Tolle say, “If you think you're enlightened, spend a week with your family.” I don't remember when I’ve laughed so hard.

As we walk our spiritual paths, we release more of the negative emotions that can result from spending time with the people who first influenced us. That doesn’t mean you don’t experience some anxiety at the holidays because it’s a perfect petri dish for old wounds to surface. Why not take some time now to examine your recent experiences so this year’s holidays can be the best ever?

Discover the true abundance in your relationships through the Akashic realm!

The Akashic Records offer valuable insights about the memories you carry that cause ripples, and sometimes tsunamis, in your relationships – especially with members of your original family. I've spent time with so many clients over the years who worked in the Akashic realm and have created peace for themselves in relationships that were once filled with anger, resentment or pain.

Some choose to stay away from these uncomfortable relationships at the holidays, preferring to stay focused on the family they've chosen. While I respect any choice that is about taking care of yourself, I remind you that like an open Explorer window, the suffering around those relationships still exists in your consciousness. It drains your “RAM” and reduces the amount of energy available to be present. You have the power to do something about it.

There’s no time like the present!

If you spend time over the next few weeks to really work with the Akashic Masters and hear the information they share with you, if you take advantage of the opportunity to release vows, clear patterns and allay suffering, you can start the new year in a more peaceful way and really feel all the abundance the Universe has to offer you.

Don't mistake this work for a magician's trick that will transform siblings or parents into your perfect fantasy version. Rather, this work can help you see them and their behavior from a completely different perspective. It can support your desire to grow and evolve by providing you with information that helps to break your patterns and change your behavior to foster the peace you desire.

Most of all, it can offer you the chance to give the gift of forgiveness, to your family and yourself – if you're willing to invest the energy

Nothing’s Perfect, but It CAN be Better.

There is no such a thing as a panacea when it comes to creating perfect family dynamics. It takes a commitment and the Akashic Records are here to support you. With their help, you can create new relationships with family members through eliminating ancient promises and karma you've carried with you into this lifetime. Wouldn't it be lovely to spend time appreciating the relationships you have instead of dreading them? That is abundance!

I've been working with the Akashic Masters for decades and without them, I wouldn't have the beautiful relationships that I do. I'm particularly grateful during the holidays because I enjoy the time I spend with family instead of finding ways to avoid them.

I want this for you. You’ll find a link in my bio that will connect you to get a complimentary guided meditation so you can communicate with your own Akashic Masters. Find a quiet space, create an intention to find release, and know that your healing process has already begun. You are moving forward toward the freedom you desire – the freedom to be around anyone and retain your core of peace. Now that’s a great way to start to the New Year!
