On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to a wish for all beings to be loved, happy and free.
Even though this blog series has been mostly about gifting local products or services as Christmas presents, I really believe there is something so powerful by sharing your love with your own natural gifts and talents! How fortunate so many of us are to have so much…we must remember that our lives are already so full of love and gratitude.
This year, I’ve asked my parents if we could make things for each other instead of buying presents. Of course, I’ve purchased a few items for them as well but nothing says ‘I love you’ like something from the heart: a home cooked meal, a painting, a song, an intention for their new year, whatever it may be these gifts have value because they have meaning- deeper than anything money can buy.
So this holiday, remember to celebrate your gifts and share them with the ones you love. And please remember to pray for all beings to happy and free. That way, you will shine your brightest light this holiday season.

Namaste sweet ones!
