A Christmas wish…

Christmas is a magical time for me and has always been. It is easy to see as to why I feel connect in so many ways to this extraordinary time of year. And if I allow my analytical mind to engage, I know that it connects to my inner core and my beliefs, which are so much more and a way of life for me. I know that it will always be more than just a seasonal Christmas wish and it might be a wish for world peace – to heal the world. Here are a few thoughts that come to mind.

Oneness- It’s a time we huddle together when storms whip through the lands. When we remember friends and family and come together as one. It’s a time we make it a priority to spend time with the ones that should always matter the most. And if distance keeps us apart like me and my loved ones in Germany, it is a time I’m closer than any other time as I wrap them deep within my heart. I miss you beyond words….
Festivities and decor-It’s a time we string the house with lights, decorate our dwellings and shine just a little bit brighter through the dark of night. As we light up the sky, a beacon shines bright as we are never lost and always find our way back home. 

Mother Nature-We incorporate Mother Nature into our homes as a festive tree casts its golden glow. Blinking lights or a steady stream, the magic of a fairytale is casting dancing shadows onto our walls, whisking us away to a wonderland of dreams and make believe. Don’t forget to breathe deeply and relax in believe. 

A season to give-May we be reminded of how good it feels to give. Smiles fill the rooms, with eyes open wide as we unwrap the thoughtful gifts and dance with excitement. And while many are less fortunate than we are, let us not forget that it doesn’t cost a thing to give a smile, a hug and a little compassion. We may even make a strangers day and instill the hope of a reminder that not all is lost. 

Spirit-It’s a time we get into the Christmas spirit and sing Christmas carol’s from the top of our lungs. A saying (Quote) hanging at my mothers house describes that he/she who sings that everything echoes each day, is believed to live a long happy fulfilled life. I’m not sure how this quote came to be and who believed in such, but maybe it’s a metaphorical reminder that we should sing from the top of our lungs a little more often. So maybe just go for it….

Family activities-It’s a time we fill the house with the sweet smell of baked goods and kick back to marvel in old movie classics and new ones. We wear ugly Christmas sweaters and might even make some new Christmas traditions.

It’s a time we go sledding, snowshoeing, skiing and engage in all kinds of winter fun. And it is usually during those times that we do laugh out loud, with heartfelt humor, all while making the memories we will hold dear for years to come. 

It’s a time of magic and wonder, a time of opening our hearts just a little bit more and a time to believe in all mankind and humanity. A time to hold our loved ones near and a time to bestow a little blessings through the act of kindness. 

My Christmas wish for you is that you enjoy all of these wonders, that you feel loved but also remember to love. May your season be filled with warmth, wonder and many special moments and memories. 
And if you want to, you might even ask yourself “Why stop here and why not carry a little magic throughout the year”.

Happy Holidays….

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. You too, my friend. Merry Xmas! As you know Raven and I will be alone this Xmas. I have bought everything she wanted for a perfect British dinner. She is ecstatic, even if it’s not a party. She’d always wanted to stay home to celebrate and this year her wish will be granted.
    I wish you all the best, from the bottom of my heart. 💜❤️💙💚💛

      1. We have it all planned out in our unplanned ways but the music blasting in our stereo will definitely be Pentatonix. 😊😊😊
        Enjoy your holidays too and let’s hope 2017 brings better luck.
        On a side note, I bought the coconut oil yesterday!

  2. I did not used to love the Christmas season, but that gash in my soul is slowly healing. Sleeping in the light of the Christmas tree and listening to the Pentatonix Holiday Pandora Station have brought me great peace this year. I think that you beautifully described the important parts of Christmas, and I too hope that perhaps the magic of this season can be carried throughout the year. My boys and I found this tree magically hung with candy canes and ornaments in the middle of the woods.

    1. Hi Patty, this warms my heart that you found some magic this holiday season and that you have fond memories. My holidays were spent being sick this year and had nothing magical about them, but I’m glad that I’m getting better and I’m not complaining.
      Happy New Year my beautiful friend. ❤️❤️❤️


  3. Belated Merry Christmas and a very very happy New Year precious Moonchild! I am back and fighting hard 😉 Reading your words reminded me that I should never have left for such a long time in the first place. I hope your year is going to be full of magic and long walks in Nature. (extra big Wonder Woman hugs)

    1. OMGoodness, you are back and you won’t believe how much I have truly missed you. I thought about you so much and if I ever learn more of how to use this app, I probably could have figured out how to contact you.
      This makes my day and you brought a little sunshine to the rain and snowy storm clouds that keep whipping over my land. I missed you my sweet soul sister and I’m so glad you are back.
      Life has been busy, holiday season in retail, inventory today and gotten sick over the holiday which I’m slowly recovering from, reaching a point I can work again. More tests ahead but better for now. I have to get ready for work in a minute and have lots of catching up to do. Can’t wait to write more.
      Welcome back love….xoxoxoxo

  4. Hi my dear friend, I am reading this post while waiting for my check out time on a beach resort in the Belle Creole side of Sint Maarten. I’ve felt so toched by your words… this year I’ve been living my holidays on a tropical island with my love and some friends and it was one of the years I’ve felt the most of these feelings you’re describing. It’s a blessing for me to hear these thought from you, so I wish you a wonderful new year with the best of 2016 and all the infinite possibilities a sensitive and powerful warrior’s path like yours can bring. A big hug from a place that for the first time is closer to you than any other I’ve been writing to you from… who knows, maybe one more step to meet you one day! xoxoxo Luca

    1. Thank you my beautiful friend, my connected soul brother. I know we will meet some day and somehow I know it’s just what is in the stars for us. It would be wonderful.
      I’m glad you had an amazing holiday season and it sounds like you made beautiful memories that will warm your heart for all eternity. Xoxoxoxo ❤️🌹🌹🌹🌹


      1. Yeah, I understand…I love atmosphere of the season, cold and dry…Christmas when I was young was quite interesting. Although we were not rich, but always celebrate it in our simple way back in Africa. My mum was caterer and cooks good food, we in invite friends to come eat, and at the end of the day we go to bed with our Christmas clothes…lol..
