It’s that time of the year once again when the hopes of spending time with loved ones and friends is upon us. We may or may not have had happy times during the holiday seasons when we were growing up, but the expectation was there, and certainly we all hoped to have and experience love and companionship. “Peace on Earth, good will towards all” is the theme of these weeks at the end of each year. We make plans for relaxing and enjoying the warmth and company of our partners, wives, husbands, children and extended families. It should be a time of caring and joy, giving and receiving, and as usual, there are the shopping lists, arrangements for visits (and lots of meals together) and festive social events in the area.
So far, so good, right?
However, for many people, this time of year can unleash feelings of alienation, loneliness, regrets, confrontations with other family members, depression, or worse. Sometimes the sudden closeness with parents and other members of the family trigger old patterns that rekindle memories or hurts we thought were behind us. Sometimes we may find ourselves in a marriage or partnership that is struggling to stay above water during the rest of the year, but under the weight of the season’s demands, the pressures may crack a fragile truce or situation that’s been simmering for a long time.
One of the toughest situations is to find yourself either recently separated or divorced and facing what is supposed to be a time of joy and happiness feeling alone, or even worse, a failure. And then there are those who long to be in another loving and nurturing relationship, and they have no one else. This may be due to a choice to be on one’s own after a divorce, or perhaps its due to the death of a spouse or loved one. No matter what the cause, to be alone during this season can be extremely challenging emotionally, and spiritually. I know, because I’ve been in this situation twice before in my life.
One of the things that we all want and need is understanding, kindness, and affection. As single women and men, dating during this time of year is seldom an antidote, though sometimes the most serendipitous meetings between people can and do occur. Although there is distinct value in spending time and cultivating a healthy relationship with one’s own self, there is still the immense desire to be part of something resembling a loving partnership or family structure. Human beings are wired for connection, for as all mammals do, we thrive in unison, not in isolation. Tribes, clans, families, community and country are all exponential reflections of our need to bond and participate with one another.
The pair bonding of two people who are resonating deeply with one another is one of the most profound and beautiful experiences that any of us can experience in life. If we deny that for ourselves, or have it denied to us for whatever the reason, a part of us dies inside. We are social creatures, and that means we are all about being “together.” This thing we call Love arises from the mysterious depths of our Soul and Spirit, and permeates every part of us (and everything). Romantic love, the love of a parent for his or her child, the love and passion one has for one’s vocation, or the love that one has for a friend, are all part of One Love…just expressed in myriad ways and forms.
So, if you’re finding yourself feeling some trepidation or anxiousness around the seasonal times ahead, whether it be with your mate, their family or yours, perhaps you need some empathetic support and guidance…or if you are finally choosing to trust that you can attract and have a conscious, heart-centered partner and relationship, and you’d like to explore what you need to do to create this in your life, then I'd like to help and be of service as we draw towards the festive season.
