Changing tradition



In my experience, the most effective, truly transformative and longest lasting change comes from within. In my last post ‘Rising Phoenix‘ I shared a little about the initiation of such a transformative experience.  I haven’t shared much about the transformation initiated by this event. As this is an ongoing process, it will take a while to integrate and see what is unfolding.

However, one of the results will also affect my blog – the reason I would like to share this part with you now. As you may have already noticed, there have been less posts (not counting reblogs) in the last couple of months and that’ll most likely be the case for a while. Also, I decided to change my writing style a bit. ‘Keep it simple‘ is very important. I’ll stop mulling over my posts for hours and instead will write what comes to mind, do less editing and…push ‘publish’. So future posts will be straight from the heart with less censorship by the brain.

‘Keep it simple’ will also be the approach to the holidays this year.  I know some of you won’t celebrate christmas – but the majority of people I know or come in contact with do. In the past I’ve enjoyed celebrating it in one way or another. This year (and in a way the last 3 years) there’s just not that ‘christmas – feel’ to it. Although part of me wants to hold on to the old traditions, the other side of me which is gaining power, is telling me to let go of the old. But how do you decide what to let go off? CHANGE is what’s needed. Letting go of things that one is fed up with is easy, letting go of things/traditions/people etc. that one still loves is a much harder task. So I am still trying to find some kind of compromise but I thought I’d use the holidays for a different kind of ‘celebration’ this year. For many, it is a time to get together, to (re)connect to loved-ones and some not-so-loved-ones. It’s tradition, what can you say? And after spending time with food, family and friends, many will seek connection (distraction, entertainment, information) on the internet. I have the intention to turn into a more contemplative state over the holidays. Instead of connecting on the internet, I want to spend more time actually connecting to the metaphysical realms. The overload of info coming out of the internet sometimes seems counterproductive. Keeping up with all the contacts can be overwhelming. Maybe the holidays is a good time to simplify and stay off the grid. What do you think?

Happy Holidays … and a Happy New Year

  1. Well put! There’s a beauty in recycling complexity down to get to the simple and most important things. Going inward is always refreshing as well. 🙂 Happy Holidays!

    • Yep, I am actually looking forward to going inward. In the past few days I realized how much I like this season, shorter days, darkness around, inviting us to retreat to our (cozy) home and ….be still, go inward. I am a very ‘seasonal’ person. When spring is around I need to go out, when the sun is out I can’t stay indoors…but come fall and winter, I really feel drawn inside. This is perfect for quiet time.

  2. Sounds good. I like the idea of keeping things simple, for all parts of life. Just the bare necessities, and this makes for a lifestyle with low maintenance effort.
    I wish you much free time and inner peace during the holiday season.

    • Thank you so much, Karin… and yes, keeping it simple should make it easier. It only takes a little effort to say NO to the ones with expectations around you.

  3. Yes, I understand what you say. I’m also looking to find a balance between remaining connected and having the time to “connect with the metaphysical realms”. I haven’t yet come up with a good game plan 😉 but I wish you the very best with yours! Sounds like you’ve found an excellent option for keeping you blog active while avoiding the strain of hours spent on posts. Wishing you well with this new approach! Warm greetings, Sam 🙂

    • Well, I have just made that decision, we’ll see where it takes me. The last 10 days have been pretty intense – spirituall – and it isn’t that easy to return to the ‘mundane world’. Feels a bit dull around here. So gotta keep working on that balance….

  4. Your words resonate with me, Gia. I’ve been pulled strongly to Mother especially lately with the urge to cut back on the computer time. I am right now trying to figure out how to stay connected with a lot of very wonderful people I have met through WP and to have time to be contemplative, quiet, a time of healing and growth, and a time of restoration. SO much has transpired over the past 3 years that I feel the time has come to integrate and to understand all the changes, all the many bumps and hills that represent my Journey as I head into this New Year. The need to Connect to Source, to Mother, to Self, is strong right now and I have learned how important it is to follow my Heart when Direction does come. Thank you for the confirmation for my Life through your words. ❤
