The 12 days of Christmas are rooted in the numerology of the 12 hours of the day, 12 hours of the night, 12 months of the ear, 12 aspects of harmony, 12 aspects of disharmony 12 signs of the Zodiac etc., a cycle of time and space that we are highly influenced by through the course of the day and year.
Much of the technology we use takes us out of our natural rhythms and cycles, so that it is important that we reconnect so that energy is not wasted by doing high impact activity at low energy times. A simple concept, but very useful.

Enjoy your holiday - with some quiet moments.
