OK, you've done the preparation. It's Christmas day, you're driving to the 'event'. What can you do?
First, play something pleasant on the cd in the car - a comedy or calming music. Say positive things to yourself...
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Christmas Day, or any special holiday/celebration, can arouse many emotions. You may feel excited and happy to share traditions with family and friends. You might be apprehensive about seeing people that, in the past, have been less than supportive of you. Whether you approach the holidays with joy or fear and loathing, your expectations may not mesh with your fellow celebrants, which is stressful

The moon is always full
Our human eyes
See only its phases...
Editor's Note from Tomasz Czepaitis: "The Moon is always Full" reminds us that we usually see the world fragmentally, "in snippets", not the whole picture. Indeed, the simple truth that we see the moon changing, when it's only its' phases, and the moon itself remains round or full always, can add to our understanding of love's labours lost as a necessary period, dynamics of Love, which we wrongly saw as a crash of all hopes and maybe a cause for the suicide. Or that we were wrong when angry at somebody because we didn't see the roots or the crown of the situation. It takes time, always, and patience, to go through "phases" of our distresses and see the wholeness. Then we are rewarded.

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: According to Ayurvedic systems, most of us carry toxic build up in our bodies. This is called Ama - which is when the digestive fire (agni) becomes weak, due to our lifestyle of unhealthy eating and stress. Melina Meza shares with us the symptoms of Ama and ways to clean out your body for spring time.
