Every Hanukkah is special, and baby’s first Hanukkah is a milestone worth celebrating. It’s an ideal time to gather the people you love together and connect in a meaningful way.
Tonight we are having a party. Like so many other firsts, this is definitely party-worthy! Whether you choose to host a big bash or simply a small gathering of your closest friends and family, your baby’s first Hanukkah is a sweet, can’t-miss occasion perfect for getting everyone together to celebrate the holiday.
Traditional Hanukkah colors are blue, white, gold and silver, and that gives you a lot of room for when it comes to choosing your plates, napkins and other party decor. Shimmering star-shaped ornaments add sparkle to the room.
Lighting the Menorah is one of the key items in any Hanukkah celebration. Every night for eight days, you’ll light a candle to commemorate the miracle of light. If you already have a menorah, great! Get that out ASAP for tonight and set it up in a prominent location.
One of the gifts that you can get for baby’s first Hannukah is a personalized onesie, romper or shirt that doubles as your baby’s party wear. Other fun Hanukkah gifts for babies include “My First Hanukkah” bibs, personalized rattles, a play menorah, Hanukkah menorah blocks or a special dreidel that your baby will play with for years to come.
It is a gift to live in the present and to keep bringing ourselves back into this present moment, because the present is our only place of power. It is here that we live from our heart, where our soul’s voice is speaking.
Only when I am in harmony with my spirit do I ever feel free. It has been a huge process of growth to expand into my heart and live from the impulses of my soul. The trust in myself as the extension of my soul’s imperatives brings me into the present time, because it is only here that I can know the truth of my being. In the truth within me is the freedom I desire.
Life is causing us to go deeper into our hearts and find what is true and important for us. Recognizing when we are being asked to speak our deepest truth is an important part of our growth process.
Feeling free to be myself requires that I give myself permission to open my heart to me. At times I need as much encouragement, support and blessing as anyone else. I respond to my loving-kindness and compassion by relaxing and feeling more at home in my body. When I act as my own best friend, giving myself the time and energy I need so I can be in alignment, my world improves. There is freedom to be, do and say what is revealed to me in the moment. I also remember that I have all the time and energy I need and I am fully supported at all times. This is the true freedom.
When we look at what our gifts are, we usually overlook the gift of the loving presence that we can bring to every moment we spend with another. This is what so many are looking for, and it is so amazingly simple to give. We just need to give ourselves permission to be the true authentic, loving person that we are. That gift will feel like true freedom.
Feeling Free to be yourself is the Greatest Gift you can give. When you are feeling free to be yourself, that is the time your light shines the brightest. That is when you are most relaxed and happy, which is the way your Spirit intended you to live.

All situations are opportunities for the Divine Light to shine through you as times of celebration. Life is divinely guided and directed at every moment. Calling on the Angels for assistance gives you a direct link to your greater good and aids the wisdom of the universe to flow through you.
Whatever situation is occurring in your life, allow the Divine Light to show you the possibility for meaningful outcomes. Ask for creative solutions for the highest good for all concerned. This will open the door for the Angelic forces to begin their work. Receiving the assistance of Angels is truly a cause for celebration. Celebrate the fact that you are not alone. Celebrate the fact that all you do is now divinely guided, because you asked.
You can believe you have to do it all by yourself if you choose. However, with even the smallest intention to receive help, with the slightest hope that good can come of the situations in your life, and the willingness to release the fear Divine Light will flow to you in abundance. This will bring inspiration and guidance for your next steps, and will allow you to actually do that which will be in your highest good. You are the one who takes the steps, no one can do this for you. And when you walk, you will be held in the arms of the Angels of Light walking in trust and faith.
Receive this light and celebrate

It is a time of growth and renewal, a time for breakthroughs into new levels of being for each of us individually. It is a time that is jam-packed with awesome potential.
In past centuries, only a few people would have the consciousness to experience their divinity within the human form. Now all of humanity has that potential. We are moving and creating our lives within the power of Divine Light. This allows us each of us to access pure alignment to the Source of All That Is.
Within you there is a place of such Peace that you can totally relax there and allow it to soak through your being. Within you is Truth and Joy, allow yourself to experience this place within, where you can be free just to be. It is as close as your breath. And it is with your breath, and the power of your thoughts and imagination, that you can begin to experience your Higher Self and your connection to the Divine.

Beautiful Mala necklaces hold a special significance for the wearer based on where they’re from, the power imbibed into them. All in all we feel and experience an energy resonance while holding the beads and this increases over time as we wear and use them for meditation.
Traditionally a mala means garland and has 108 beads strung together and one guru bead, in the very center, symbolic of the light and the teacher who helps lift our awareness making us self-reliant and independent. The guru bead is also a marker for your fingers during meditation and mantra repetition and you’ll feel it easily while using the mala with your eyes closed.
A common way to use the mala is to engage in a japa, or mantra meditation. The repetitive recitation of a single sound, such as om, a few words, such as om so ham, or your personal mantra which can be deeply transformative is done once per bead. Tracing the beads of the mala with your fingers can help you keep track of japa, and you can set an intention to repeat one, two or three malas per day as a start.
Similar to praying with rosary beads, meditating with a mala helps calm the mind, deepens the breath and gradually re-directs focus of the mind away from daily worries and towards positive and spiritual thought patterns.
Meditation is well known to positively affects the brain and mood. However finding the time and practice that enables us to be still, calm and focused for 10 minutes or more is generally quite challenging. This is where your mala and mantra are essential tools for achieving better attention, wellness and enhanced self-awareness.
Check out our online jewelry boutique. We feature three different types of malas.

Be Grateful for all that you are. It takes discipline and effort to switch to a different channel where we can look from a higher perspective with more gratitude. When we do this, it can take us directly into our hearts, and then from our heart’s intelligence we are able to create from a more resourceful place.
Gratitude is the attitude that gives us the inspiration we need so we can feel more love and appreciation for our lives. That is because Gratitude is a powerful energy surge that raises our vibrational frequencies to the level where we can see beyond the immediate appearance of disharmony to the truth of the dynamic force of the Divine working in our lives.
This expansive presence of Divine Pure Potential can work with us to create a life that is more in keeping with what we want to experience. It responds to our thoughts and feelings directly. In the new energy system in which we are living, we have clear choices about how we want to live. At this time of heightened energy frequencies, we have been given a blank slate where we can formulate our lives. We do this by asking the Universe to work through us so we can be in alignment with the highest wisdom of our Soul. Though this may sound simple, because of our habitual ways of thinking, it takes an extreme focus of attention on what we truly want to experience instead of what we don’t like about ourselves and the lives we are living.
Our focus of attention is a powerful tool, simple but not easy; The magnetic energy of our thoughts and feelings is the seed that creates attraction to a different experience. That is why keeping our energy frequencies as uplifted as possible makes such a difference in what we are experiencing in life. When there is nothing else we can think of to do, being grateful can be the key that turns the tides of our feelings into the channels of new life and wellbeing. It is an amazing and powerful tool just waiting for us to put it into action. With this simple tool you can transform your world as you become more grateful for all that you already have in your life and what is being offered to you from All That Is.

When you live your life from a vibration of love that love has to flow first of all through you to then be expressed towards others. Therefore, when you accept love in all its forms, you are accepting the love of your divinity.
Your authentic self is you expressing as your soul. As you listen to your intuition you are listening to your soul or source. When you are authentic, you are talking, living, creating from a place that resonates with you and helps you to feel good. When you are in balanced alignment, you feel good! When you feel good, you are authentic in your life and how you express yourself.
love, k 🙂
Let yourself drop what no longer fits. Release it like you’re simply taking a step forward. You are.
This is how life works. The past falls away behind us. Over and over again. We’re taught to think we have to string it all together and make sense of it. Tell a story that somehow makes us looks smart, perfect, wise, cool..whatever.
But you don’t have to. You can just be you, now as you are. Your energy is current. Your story and how you tell it can be too.
There is relief in coming into harmony with who you truly are. With dropping everything else. This is authenticity, genuineness, a state of being that welcomes others without expectation or need, because you can. It’s easy from here because you’re experiencing your wholeness. Pure and simple.
