The holidays can bring great joy and give you the opportunity to express your deep love and appreciation for the people you love.
At the same time, you often have to be around people you may not love or like too much.
Let’s be real. We all have relatives or in-laws who we might never choose to associate with.
How can you find connection and compassion for these people?
It’s not as hard as you think.
Look for things you have in common, like books you are reading or the love of reading.
Think about how you could bring compassion to the relationship. Are they going through a hard time? Can you relate? How could you let them know that?
Don’t get attached to the outcome. Making this effort will make you feel good about yourself, regardless of their reaction.
Get curious. Ask them questions about their life. What are their hopes and dreams? What are their challenges?
A wise mentor of mine once said, “If you want people to be like you, be interested in them.”
A couple of years ago, I set an intention on the Wednesday night before we headed to Thanksgiving with my husband’s family. This had been our routine for twenty-three years. There were parts of the trip I enjoyed but often the time dragged by and I felt uncomfortable and out of place. I decided, I wanted to be proactive about causing a different experience for myself.
I sat down and wrote out my intentions for the weekend. They went something like this:
Wow, the power of intention really works! I will admit, I set my intentions not only consciously but in my subconscious using the power of Psych-K®.

The Holidays are upon you, Firstname_Placeholder.
You “should” feel excited, grateful, & happy.
Instead, you feel angry & anxious - because nothing’s gone the way it “should” this year. *
Maybe you feel sad & regretful because you want to visit family but you won’t because of COVID.
It’s not what we feel that keeps us so stuck. What IS keeping us from being happy, or having what we want?
In reality? It’s that we don’t fully feel anything.
We’re taught all our lives to hide our feelings, apologize for our feelings, suppress our feelings.
We are not taught to feel through our feelings.
That’s scary - because we worry that our feelings will sweep us away! *
Here’s a great example from my life:
When I was 15 years old, my mother told me I had to go to live with my older sister in another state. I was devastated! My mother was my best friend, and she was rejecting me.
I had no outlet for my anger and anxiety, so I ate. I gained 40 pounds (ca. 18 kg) that year.
I understand that you worry that YOUR FEELINGS will overtake your life…
But that’s not the way it has to be - because with the right SUPPORT & OUTLET, your feelings are the way TO getting what you want.
For me - after struggling with my weight for years, I did a group training program where I was able to release my angry emotions, lose weight, and keep it off.
I definitely could NOT have done this without the support of that group.
I invite you to feel what you feel - lean into it - let it exist - and FEEL it.
I promise, it doesn’t have to sweep you away. IN fact, when you FEEL the feelings, they can lift away.
Once we help you lift the heavy feelings, we can create something exciting to replace it!
How do you do this?
It’s not as hard as you think but you might need some help and reassurance - just like I did.
Here’s are some examples of how this has worked for clients:
Alice is a young woman who got wound up many times a week to the point of screaming in her car & hitting herself simply because she made a wrong turn or things weren't going the way she had planned. After only 1 session of Psych-K®, she reports that her behavior is completely transformed. She is relaxed about life and has never had a screaming or hitting incident since.
Belinda cried every week on a group call I was on ,so I offered her a Free Psych-K® Session. Many things were going wrong in her life: job loss, weight gain, negative patterns repeating, and she couldn’t find a way out of her sadness. During our session, she was able to release a ton of suppressed emotion and after the session, she could only find gratitude for what’s possible in her life. She had a sense of freedom and joy she began expressing to everyone.
Linda is an accomplished woman in her 60s. Attractive, talented, successful, yet she had constant negative emotions about herself. In her first session, she cried for about ten minutes and thought that the emotion was endless but I assured her it would lift. By the end of the session, she could not believe how light and free she felt.
Let’s get back to talking about YOUR holidays! Once you’ve FELT & released your anger, anxiety, sadness, regret, etc. - the best way to sustain a positive state of mind is to begin to ask yourself what you are grateful for.
Think about everything around you and all the people and structures that support the things around you.
