Let Your Light Shine

winter holidays

Happy Holidays! Solstice marks the beginning of winter, the longest night of the year. In the time of most darkness, it is traditional to bring in the most light and let your light shine! Thus the candles of Chanukah and of Kwanzaa, and the lights of Christmas.

Light up your own homes, hearths and hearts even brighter during this holiday season! Bringing in more light helps on so many levels! Rituals from long ago and newly designed sacred ways to celebrate light can be so enriching. Learn about other cultures/traditions to help your world feel more inclusive. Invite someone of a different (or no) faith to light Chanukah candles with you, participate in a Solstice ceremony, sing Christmas carols or hear tales of Kwanzaa. Making the world safer involves understanding people who seem different, only to discover your similarities!

holiday lights

Here are 8 tips to enlighten your world over the holidays:

  1. Take time to breathe, rest and calm yourself. Light a candle and meditate, even for a few moments. Breathe in light, especially into the dark corners of yourself; breathe out light to form an orb all around you.
  2. Eat foods that help you feel lighter, brighter and more joyful. Be creative. Research new variations of old family recipes.
  3. Keep a journal of all that you are grateful for. Jot down 5-10 things before bed each night. Warm your heart with gratitude.
  4. Tell your family and friends how much they mean to you. Use words, along with gifts, to share your love.
  5. Reach out to old friends and distant relatives. Send them some cheer to brighten their holidays.
  6. Be of service to those in need. Visiting the sick, the elderly, the lonely or the hungry is a great mitzvah—a good deed in Hebrew.
  7. Imagine healing, blessing and light radiating to all who need more hope, peace and positive action. Picture people, places and events encircled with illumination.
  8. Share your traditions and stories with your children, grandchildren or other young ones.
