Embracing New, Now. 5 Ways to Truly Enjoy The Holidays.



Written by Dr. Rhea Zimmerman

As the day of Thanks comes close and we are all pondering what we are grateful for, I’d like to introduce another pertinent topic this time of year:  forgiveness.  Read on to see my top 5 recommendations for embodying forgiveness, which is embracing new, now.

Forgiveness is the attribute that we all have that allows us to see things with new eyes.  It’s opposite is prejudice.  Prejudice makes assumptions and already knows what an experience is going to be before it happens.  Prejudice takes the past, and with it, writes the future.  Forgiveness on the other hand, takes the past, says, I can learn from that, and it writes a new future.

Forgiveness is the quality that allows us to consider that something can change that we did not think was possible.  Our health and body sensations, our relationships with others, our relationship with money, our relationship with ourselves.

The essence of forgiveness is the capacity for change.  What can you do to develop this capacity and thereby bring about a new and fresh experience, just in time to enjoy the holidays?

1.  Get Adjusted.  Yep, I am a chiropractor, it is the world I live in, and it is the thing I deeply respect and utilize in my life.  With the adjustment your brain and body receive the signals that break up old neurologically wired patterns and creates the opportunity right in the moment for new fresh neurological patterns (choice and experience) to open up.

2.  Breathe.  A lot.  I use breathe exercises to flush my body, move out the old and bring in the fresh new oxygen.  Two minutes of breathe exercise can change your experience instantly.   Adding a mental image of breathing in the new, and exhaling the old, is a nice way to support the exercise.

3.  Move.  Moving your body helps your entire being to metabolize old and stuck emotions and toxins that are hanging around and engages your whole being to flush and renew.

4.  See With New Eyes.  Deciding to see new takes a commitment to it.  It means catching the old patterns in the moment they arise and realizing that right here, right now, is a fresh new opportunity.  You can refresh your relationship right now, with yourself, with others, by remembering that there is always the opportunity to start now.  I use the audios I developed, Breathe Love, to help me to anchor in new choice and emotions.  (

5.  Trust Yourself.  The clearer you are from all of the above, the more you can trust your Innate.  Through clarity you can feel the vibration of people and experiences around you in order to know if forgiveness means walking towards, or walking away.  Sometimes forgiveness means embracing a new experience of self, life, others, while letting the “old” experience, and therefore relationships and habits, go.  Other times it means a willingness to let the “old” transform into the “new.”  The clearer you are, the more you KNOW.

Wishing you all a wonderful, deeply fulfilling, awe inspiringly loving launch to the holiday season this week.  xo  Dr. Rhea
