Even in my relatively solitary life! I am exposed to comments like 'capping ones spending'
So, firstly, if you are in sufferance of the results of the populace chanting the CC mantra to the degree that you are feeling 'the pinch' (another popular term right now!)
I would love to say a few words.
Be consciously aware of where and how YOU DO spend your monies.
I am hearing many smaller folks on the edge of 'going out of business' as people adhere to the 'capping spending modality'
BUT I see the stupour markets FULL - I am sure that everyone will continue to dribble money in the the xmas hype! at all the big stores etc.
So maybe? we could utalise this time to care, love and support each other. These could be seen as empowering times?
Spend with those who are local, have an integrity and who are living their dream.
At the end of the day, if we carry on in the poverty consciousness mentality.. We will violate each other, whilst the big power stupour markets will triumph through the 'storm'
At the end of the day, the cheaper prices they offer, will all diminish once our brothers and systers are no longer there to challange them in any way.
The stupour markets and big stores and business WILL ride the CC mantra train, whilst we continue to feed their coffers.
Might I suggest that we think! before we spend. If the CC scenario has been orchestrated, which of course it has! Let US orchestrate a supporting of each other, NOT the commerical hype.
If you choose to be spending at this time of year.
Think and Choose
The Mother Magazine, Fresh Magazine, Permaculture, etc etc. All these make brilliant subs as gifts.
Aquila is a young peoples magazine, that I just subbed for one of my grandaughters.
Festive nourishing food hampers can be sourced at Shazzies Shop.
Book your loved one a Reiki session or a Nia Dancing sub.
Live Chocolate treats are bliss - A gift of a wild food walk? for someone.
What a joy that could be.
A massage or wholistic therapy session, can be wonderful refreshing gifts, that nourish the loved one and also support those in the wholistic dance.
Buy someone a sub to The Best Day Ever Forum.
There are so many potential gifts that could express your love AND support someone of sincerity and integrity.
Our power is STILL in our purse. remember...
If every person didnt buy alchohol this season!? then there would be lots of money left to enjoy at simpler and more conscious levels.
Children can make gifts and paint cards - Dont buy into the hype. I am not suggesting that the spin off isnt happening - its IS. But we can make choices.
If we ALL went on a stupour market fast! I bet you things might turn around over night!
If we ALL stopped buying the newspapers! things might turn around over night!
If we ALL stopped watching, reading and listening to the CC mantra programme - People would begin to feeeeeeeeeeeeeeel different, when we feel better, we manifest what we seek.
This is such a magick potentially empowering time, but its about us and each other.
Create an intention NOT to spend in the big stores, support your local markets, fetes, whatever is going on around you. Save petrol, hassle, overly heated shops, germ ridden perfumed and contaminated ventilation etc.
Unplug from the need to buy useless household gimmicks like air freshners! Although I am sure there isnt an air freshner in site in our houses - grin!
And put on extra clothes rather than sit in overly heated houses.
IT IS THE BEST DAY EVER - look outside and feel it and go dance in the daylight, walk bare foot on the grass and sing and dance.
At a different level theres a different devil! LIVE LIFE ALIVE - SMILE
