And for the most part, it’s true.
I used to think that I detested gift buying at Yule/Christmas/Chanukah because I didn’t want to be part of the process of buying stuff just cause you have feel you have to.
But since then, it has gradually become an exercise and lesson in manifestation.
This year I said, “I’m not buying gifts” and I let everyone know.
But a few days before gift exchanging, my perspective on the matter started to change. I set the intention, “I will only buy items for others if the item will be used and appreciated and is in the right price range,” fully intending to not purchase anything.
Well yesterday I was picking up pastries at the grocery store and the store happened to be next to a Happy Tuesday, which is kind of a mish-mash housing goods store.
I wandered in, and as I went through the isles, I spotted an item and a major alarm in my brain would go off.
“This would be perfect for _____________!”
So I’d pick it up.
By the time I made it through the store, that happened for everyone I celebrate the holidays with.
And they loved what they got.
But I appreciate the exercise of gift seeking and giving because it is a good practice of manifestation.
It was also quite fun to buy those items… not the typical drudgery that is shown on the news shows on Black Friday when shoppers rush the stores at 4am.
I think that has a huge impact on whether the gift will be successful, too.
Everyone… not just indigo adults and indigo children… can feel into the energy with which a gift was purchased. It’s important.
Anyway, I hope you are having happy holidays!
