Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

Wish List Wednesday - A Handmade Holiday

Handmade creations make any holiday special. But giving handmade gifts brings even more special meaning to the effort. As promised, here are some great handmade gifts for those on your list this year. This is the first of  a series of lists of unique, interesting, handmade items that you can purchase with no fuss. As the shipping deadline fast approaches, hopefully this list will help you get through your shopping list with little stress.

These items can all be purchaes through ArtFire, where you don't need an account to buy. The transaction is quick and easy, and you can even add items to your Amazon Wish List through this site. That way, others can see what you might like for Christmas too!

Great to bring to that Holiday party as part of the Hostess Gift, these Reusable Burlap Bottle Bags, by Catfluff, are sturdy, festive, and affordable.

This set of holiday cards, by ButterflyCrafts, is a unique way to wish the best for the holidays. Certainly much better than those superstore generic cards.

Give 'em the moon and the stars with this beautiful pendant. Good gift for the girls that have nearly everything, this is a unique piece of jewelry that you can't find in the mall.

With such crazy weather we are having these days, give the gift of warmth and style with this delicate scarf that can be worn even without a coat. It is soft mohair and make of my favorite colors, lilac.

Who doesn't like a warm cup of tea (or coffe, chai, hot chocolate, Kahlua, etc.) after a long day shopping? This is a festive way to relax with that cup of goodness. This Mug Cozy makes a great gift to go in a gift basket that may have a collection of fine beverages too.
