Healing Past Painful Holiday Memories

For some of us, the holidays are anything but peaceful or joyful.

Perhaps the holidays bring up memories of disappointment, tension, even trauma.

If this is the case for you, I encourage you to do a Healing Code specifically on your negative holiday memories.

First, start with your current feelings and beliefs about the holidays. Is the belief that it’s all up to you to make the holidays a perfect, special time causing you stress?

Are you feeling anxiety over finding “the perfect gift”? Are you dealing with the old “not enough” feeling as you try to make your budget stretch to include gifts? Are you anticipating disappointment because you’ve always felt disappointed by Christmas? Are you feeling pressured to plan a great party, wondering if you can live up to others’ expectations?

Whatever your current stress is, rate it (1-10, 10 being the worst). Then ask yourself, “What other times have I felt this way?” Jot down those memories, rate them if you can (skip this if it brings you more stress!), then start to work on the strongest or earliest memory with a Healing Code. (Use the universal Code from The Healing Code book, or one that fits your issue from The Healing Code Manual, or get a custom Healing Code from me.)

You can drain the negative charge from those earlier memories so that they don’t have to color your current experience. You can enjoy this year for what it is, and create new, joyful memories. I pray you will let the Joy-giver whose Light and Love are celebrated heal any negative memories, and break into your life with the joy and peace he came to bring.
