Tis the Season to Be Jolly... and Share Your Gifts

Dear Beloved Six Sensories,
It's very tempting to become cynical during the holidays ...especially with all the commercialization surrounding them. But it is important to not allow the commercial hijacking of Christmas to shut your heart down. After all, the season of Christmas is the season of the child. All children, including our inner child. It is the season of wonder, imagination, sweetness, and surprises, and of course, gifts. It is the season for experiencing all the things that wake up the inner child to feel loved and special, and most of all valued. Granted there are a lot of traditions  at Christmas that we could ditch and not miss them, especially the one about being"good" enough to get a treat from Santa. The truth is we are all "good enough," and Christmas is one season which celebrates our inherent goodness.  But the practice of sharing gifts is worth continuing, only they need not be gifts purchased at a store. The best gifts and the ones worth sharing and do bring a lot of joy to all are the gifts of Spirit that we have all been endowed with. In fact, I believe the purpose of life is to share our gifts with as many people as possible every day. To do this, we must first start by recognizing our gifts. We all have gifts, at least one thousand gifts in fact, according to my teachers. What are you personal gifts; the talents and qualities that make life better all the way around?
You may have the gift of music, the gift of gab, the gift of listening, the gift of nurturing,  the gift of cooking, cleaning, laughing easily. If you dig deeply  enough into your personal gift basket you may of even find gifts you possess that you didn't even know you had. For example I just discovered the gift of patience. It's taken many years to find this gift, but I cannot tell you how happy I am to have it and share it with as many people who formally bugged me as possible. My family is even more happy I am sharing this gift with them as well.
I also discovered the gift of song writing. I just wrote the lyrics for an entire CD , and had it put to music this past month. It's called Traveling at the Speed of Love. I love this gift and I love sharing it. You can get a free mp3 download of the main title song Traveling at the Speed of Love  by going to my website www.soniachoquette.com. I am so happy to share it with you. I really hope you enjoy it. If you do, tell others. Share my website www.trustyourvibes.com with them, and pass this gift along.
So please keep your heart open, and look into it for your gifts. They play Santa, or Father Christmas, or the good fairy, and share and share and share even more all your gifts with the world. You have them. The world needs them. And you will feel wonderful and blessed and truly enriched for being so generous of Spirit with all of us.
All my love from somewhere in the world,
Sonia
