Blue Flame Space between Thanksgiving, Hanukkha and Christmas
- Category: Holidays and Special Occasions
Will you be captured by cultural extravagance and get set uncontrollably ablaze in your eating disorder thinking and behaviors? Or will you be mindful, appreciative and attentive to your flame within?
The pictured above blue flame I found on the NASA site. It's the flame of a candle in almost no gravity conditions. Air provides buoyancy.Without the presence of buoyancy in space, a candle flame appears as a small blue flame centered on the wick.
What a gorgeous metaphor! You, between the energy surges of the holidays, can use this image to tend to your own natural inner fire as it eternally blooms when cultural pressures are absent.
How much buoyancy from your environment and learned habits will you bring to your blue flame? You've survived Thanksgiving and perhaps learned more about your triggers and how to cope with them.
More triggers are coming if you allow them. You don't have to let this time before the holidays pour tension and expectations into your life. You can choose, what, when and how much just as you are learning to choose, what, when and how much in terms of the food you eat.
Bringing air to the blue flame in space creates hot fire. Astronauts learn how to keep that stimulation at a minimum while providing enough oxygen for them to breathe. What steps can you take to keep holiday stimulation at a minimum while you accept enough refreshing pleasure to allow you to enjoy this time?

Now is the time to meet your present challenge. You don't want dramatic emotions or major eating or starving activities to erupt. Yet you want enjoyable holidays.
