My “Holiday Blogging” Gift To You: Entry # 21/Breaking Your Spirit
Think about all the lies that are told at Holiday Time. For example, “Santa Claus” leaving presents and living at the North Pole with his reindeer, elves, and Mrs. Claus.
When you are little, the people who you love and trust the most lie to you over something that is really, really important to you at that age.
You are imprinted that you can’t trust your loved ones to tell you the truth.
If they lie to you about all these multiple holidays, what else do they lie to you about?
You learn at an early age not to trust the people you love; that the people you love lie to you.
Hence, Isolation Programming, Relationships Issues, Abandonment Issues…you have a lot of issues that the holidays/ritual days imprint upon you.
The attempt is to break your spirit before it even gets started.
To take out all the excitement and joy; destroy your hopes, dreams, and fantasies.
Stop your creative process because why bother?
It is all unattainable anyway.
You lose a lot of enthusiasm/energy this way.
This sets you up for a lifeline of deflated joy; of a broken spirit; of a “why try” attitude.
You may even use the expression, ‘I’m broke” if you run out of or are low on currency/energy/money.
The cycle run exceptionally deep.
They are so ingrained that it is challenging to identify them, much less change them.
How do you feel about the myths perpetuated to children at holidays?
How did broken myths affect you as a child? How do they still perpetuate within your life today?
