While Christmas music playlists often include favorites like “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” there are also a handful of tracks that go a deeper.
Listen to “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” or “White Christmas,” and you’ll hear a deep yearning to be home for the holidays especially when having to spend the holidays somewhere else.
December is filled with Christmas rituals – the TV specials, Live Rockefeller Christmas Lightning, the gifts, the lights, the music, fireplace, hot chocolate, snow, and what remains is home. It is the beating heart of the holiday, and its importance reflects our primal need to have a meaningful relationship with a setting, a place that transcends the boundary between the self and the physical world.
Bliss Medium Boutique on Etsy
Etsy has a very very very strict policy. To the point where it’s almost counter-productive for them.
Etsy shops have been deactivated for trivial things like posting external links in the forums or even mentioning other marketplaces like Shopify, and WooCommerce.
As you all know, we are selling Intuitive Readings along with a digital music mantra mp3 at our Etsy shop. Etsy is a unique venue that connects buyers to individual makers and designers, and they have policies that have changed about what can be sold and the types of businesses that can sell in their marketplace.
In the Etsy marketplace, they require that we accurately represent handcrafted items in our business. After a close review, Etsy found our shop to have the following issue that our products were not 100% handmade and handcrafted even though our mantra music mp3 is actually 100% handmade and handcrafted but Etsy administration doesn’t see it that way.
There are some real violations of Etsy Terms and some real misunderstandings. We can’t tell when Bliss Medium Boutique will be back up and running but we are hoping to resolve the issue and have been thinking of connecting our handcrafted Manifesting Candles along with selling our Intuitive Readings. Thank you so much for everybody’s support for the last two years. Our Etsy shop has grown abundantly and in the meantime, everyone can still order readings through our website at IntuitiveMagazine.com and donations we take through our PayPal account which is AnswersforAwareness@gmail.com
We will continue our newsletters, and social media @intuitivemagazine on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and @intuitivemag on Twitter. You still know where to find us intuitivemagazine.com. Have a wonderful rest of December celebrating the holidays and Happy New Year!!
The ocean is a great place for meditation. At the beach, the boundaries between sand, sea and sky become one. It can be difficult to tell exactly where one ends and another begins. As waves reach the shore, they soak into the sand; crashing waves stir up sand, mixing it with water. Ocean mist rises as breaking waves curl around and splash through the air. This merger of water, earth and air can be a helpful creative visualization for meditation.
With your body receiving the breath like sand receives water, allow the mind, your attention, to infuse all elements. The interaction of ocean and air creates bubbles in the water; the sand has space for air between each grain. As the air is present in both the water and sand, let your mind follow each movement and stay present with the breath and body until the breath serves to unite mind and body just as the sea blends with the air and sand at the water’s edge.
All around the world, Australia is renowned for its beaches, and it isn’t hard to see why. With some of the longest stretches of sand-covered coastline in the world, Oz’s beaches are not only plentiful but also of an almost universally high quality. Aussies take care of and take pride in their beaches, keeping them generally clean and pollution-free, but with so many to choose from, how can you determine which beaches are a cut above the rest? We love all of them!
