Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, however it can also be a stressful time too, especially for children.
There is the serious issue of overwhelm, anxiety and more negative emotions:
Which presents do you want? Endless decisions
What part do you get in the school performance?
Can Santa see me all the time?
Remembering words to the songs?
Standing in front of hundreds of people to “perform”
Elves and Santa-Cams and threats of bad behaviour resulting in less presents
Does Santa love me? As much as my friend?
Picking up on stressed parents?
Overhearing conversations saying negative things about other family members?
Writing and receiving (or not) Christmas cards
What are we doing in class today?
Where’s my school routine gone completely
How does Santa get into the house?
Why does he come in my room with the stocking?
Sugar and food overload
Expectations of behaviour and interactions with others
As a parent there are things you do to support your child or children in this festive time.
Touch is a wonderful gift – we all know about baby massage and the wonderful oxytocin hormone which is releases for both baby and parent doing the massage – the happy hormone flowing between both. Supporting and nurturing and creating a wonderful bond.

Top 10 Tips to Support your Energy at this Festive Time of Year
Another blist this time looking at how you can support your energy and sanity in this very emotionally & physically draining time of year! These are some tips to reboost
Breathe – breathe slowly in and out x 5; you can use colours (eg pink is for love, green to heal, blue to calm etc)
Use Bach Rescue Remedy – suitable for most people and children. The spray is particularly useful, if not a drop in water or drinks for you and kids can really calm!!
Lavender oil – use a diffuser or few drops on your pillow or bedding (or kids clothing!)
Rose quartz crystals are great for calming and creating an atmosphere of love – love for others and self love. Give them a clean and charge then program for what you want them to do (see my older blog. Its a full moon on Christmas day so make sure you give them a clean and charge on your windowsill after a busy day
Energy healing – sit quietly with hands on your solar plexus/ tummy or thighs and just allow the universal energy to flow (everyone can do this, no attunement needed). Use when watching TV – no needs to know
Writing – sit down and write what ever comes into your head – perhaps a letter to your future or past self or writing all the great things that have happened in 2015
Write a channeled angel message. Sit quietly and breathe slowly and ask your favourite angel or guardian angel if there are any messages and then simply write everything down without analysing what you write.
Cleanse your house, it may be vacuumed and dusted and mopped but energetically may need a cleanse too. Use an incense stick (or sage if you have any) and walk around the house holding the smoke in the corners and asking for the rooms to cleared energetically. Especially in the main rooms where loud talking occurs & kids bedrooms.
Use oracle cards – pull a card a day or whenever you need a pickmeup message. Ask what message you need for that moment and then look at the picture at all the details which pop out at you and take all that comes into your mind as part of the message – then afterwards read the guidebook.
Cord cutting – we all have tiny cords of energy joining us together – which is why we think f someone just before they call – these attachments however can link us to people from our past we no longer want around us, to people we work with or friends who you find draining after spending time with. So its important to be able to clear these negative links and keep the cords flowing with love. To cut your cords imagine a figure 8 and you are in one circle and everyone else in the other circle. Then ask Archangel Micheal (or do it yourself) cut the two circles apart and ask that only cord that are of love and for your highest good remain. This may need repeating daily if there is a long term drain. I will do a video on this as soon as my throat is better
In the meantime I wish you all the very best of the Season and hope you find space for calm for yourself and enjoy all that the season has to offer
For the last 2 weeks we’ve been in the pre-shadow of Mercury Retrograde and the Retrograde commences Nov 16th in the UK and runs until 6th December. Then we have 2 weeks of post-shadow of the Retrograde.
Don’t let other people’s moans about Mercury Retrograde make you lose 6 months of the year!
I’m a great advocate of being optimistic and ensuring that I benefit from the energies of the moment. So use this time to reflect on what issues are coming up for you, do some detective work around them and then take action to clear and release
Key pointers in a Mercury Retrograde:
– Watch your communication (that it can’t be misinterpreted).
– Allow others the benefit of the doubt if their communication to you is a little “off” or pushes your buttons
– Double check travel arrangements and allow time for changes
– It’s a bit late now but back up all IT (phone/laptop/cameras etc) and implement any updates before a Retrograde!
What is a Mercury Retrograde?
Mercury is closer to the Sun than Earth and so therefore passes earth about 3x in a year. There is a time when it looks like Earth has overtaken Mercury and this is what we call a “Retrograde – as it looks like its going backwards in relation to Earth).
Why do people moan when it’s Mercury Retrograde?
Mercury affects communications and electronics so when it goes retrograde it can often play havoc in these areas for the unprepared! Some of the reasons are:
Laptops, phones stop working or crash. Files refuse to open
People misunderstand your emails or notes
Travel plans can be disrupted
Headaches, migraines and dizzyness
Things to do Before a Mercury Retrograde
Back up your laptop or IT and phone (photos, contacts etc)
Research new product purchases
Get car serviced
During a Mercury Retrograde
Double check any travel plans
Ensure your mobile is fully charged and backed up
Get a positive mindset in case your travel arrangements change or get delayed
Double check any important emails that you may need send – so they are unclear and can not be emotionally or otherwise misunderstood
Do some cord cutting around people, events or actions that are coming up
Be open and flexible in travel and responses/actions from other people
How does Mercury Retrograde affect you?
The two weeks prior to Mercury going retrograde people may start feeling off kilter or the earth energies changing. In this period of the pre-shadow we start to notice themes, or people popping back into our radar who may have been absent for a long time, repeating patterns or issues coming up again.
These themes will be the things that we can work on in the Mercury Retrograde. If you like, a Mercury Retrograde is a great time to clear old stuff for one final time.
The first 2 weeks are the time to be a detective, to find out, root out and discover elements around your theme. The next two weeks are a great time to take actions related to the theme. The post-shadow 2 weeks are a final clearing up the loose ends.
On a Wellbeing Level?
The head is busy processing and our intuition is more attuned into our daily life. This can affect our wellbeing through
-Headaches, migraines or anxious feelings. – due to the processing and overwhelm of the task in hand
– Feeling ungrounded, dizzy or off-kilter
Tools to Support You
– Keep hydrated, this will help clear blocks, detox the body and keep the body and brain fully hydrated
– Take a salt bath or foot bath – again to detox and ground the body
– Do a grounding meditation, visualise roots, do some gardening or mindful exercises
– Eat root vegetables or dark fruit/veg
– Play or cuddle with animals as they are naturally grounded
– Mindful activities involving nature (eg walking)
Advantages of the Mercury Retrograde
With the pre & post shadow a Mercury Retrograde affects earth for approximately 7 weeks and in 2018 we are having 3 of them! So that’s 21 weeks – nearly half a year – so unless you want to wipe out half a year with a negative swish of your hand you may want to find positives about a Mercury Retrograde.
A great time to connect to your intuition, it is stronger during a Mercury Retrograde. Practice on simple things like what to eat or drink and move onto bigger decisions
Communication is strong as well as your intuition so it is a perfect time to do more (or regular) journalling. To connect to yourself and guides
To get clarity on the bigger picture of something you ware looking to manifest in your life – perhaps a new job or new product/service if self-employed
Things or contracts created in the Mercury Retrograde tend to have more flexibility or be open to opportunity, that those created outside of the retrograde (clean, no-mess solutions)
Greater creativity – due to the communication, higher speed processing
A chance to review past events and people and take action to clear loose ends
Cord cutting of people, vows, events and actions
Useful words for the Mercury Retrograde are:
Research – Communication – Intuition – Flexibility
