What does reconciliation have to do with your business?

No, I don’t mean your bank reconciliation.  I mean a reconciliation of the heart.  Some of the definitions of reconcile are: to compose or settle (a quarrel, dispute, etc.) and to bring into agreement or harmony.

There is a tradition in Iceland at Christmas.  Every thing must be clean.  Every nook and cranny of the house must be immaculate.  Anything that needs to be repaired, no matter how small, must be put in order.

This is symbolic.  The real meaning is a reconciliation of the heart.

If you have anything that is “out of order” in your relationships with others or yourself.  If you have any thing that needs to be said or completed in order to feel at peace…now is the perfect time to do it!

People’s hearts are more open and tender at this time of year…take the opportunity to connect, reconnect, forgive or ask for forgiveness.

And what does this have to do with your business….everything!  When you are living in integrity, with a peaceful heart, you are freeing up a tremendous amount of emotional and mental energy…freeing you to be creative in your ideas.  And it is from your ideas that your business is built, grows and prospers.

Wishing you all the very best of all good things this holiday season and in 2010.
