If you have been hanging with me for awhile, you’ve probably encountered a FB Live drop in from my little guy Ryker. He’s pretty awesome, but today he taught me something that I had to share with you.
At 4, Christmas is the only thing on his mind right now. And so today we started to write a letter to Santa. Ryker cut it short and sweet:
Anything with Tom Brady and a remote control boat.
Easy peasy for this mom!
I was surprised at how simple it was. He was direct, knew what he wanted, claimed it and then went back to playing with the dog. Maybe manifesting is that easy?
And then tis letter to Santa really got me thinking,
I want to write a letter to Santa too!
I want to be in that magic state that my Ryker-oni is in. “Here’s my list, I don’t know how it’s going to happen, but Santa bring it on!”
And then I realized, I can write that letter, straight to the Universe.
And so I did.
I poured my heart and soul into my Christmas list to the Universe and was shocked when I read back what I had written.
It was beautiful, awakening and powerful all in one.
What I was more surprised about than anything, was that there was not 1 material item on there. Not 1. (And I LOVE presents! )
But here’s what was on my grown up list:
I wrote about what I want to experience with my husband and children during the holiday and how I want to feel when my mother comes to stay with me for 2 weeks.
I shared how much I love my clients and want them to have their best Christmas ever and that I truly want to be the best coach and leader possible for them.
I asked for time with my friends whom I adore and to be fully present for all of my family at gatherings.
I want to feel peace, love and gratitude.
I want clarity.
I want connection.
I want light.
I’m not sure what I’m going to do with the letter.
(If you have an idea, let me know.)
But here’s what I do know.
When I wrote that, I released it and unattached from how this will become my experience.
And isn’t that part of the magic of Santa and the Universe?
We don’t have to know how.
We just have to believe to receive.
And when we enjoy the day to day along the way, that’s when we can receive what our heart desires. Because at the soul of it, what we really want is what only we can give ourselves- compassion, grace and space.
The joy is in the journey.
The power is in your spirit.
The answer is in your emotion.
That’s what makes it magic and that’s what makes it manifest.
I truly hope you can take a few minutes and write your heart out to the Universe and that your experience is as special as this was to me.
If you feel like sharing, I’m here listening.
To Magic and Moments…
