getting preparations done to celebrate, a few things came to mind. What is Christmas the season of? In my view it’s not so much about opening presents as opening our hearts.
This reminds me of the origins of Father Christmas, from a distant time and far away. Father Christmas not to be confused with Santa Claus- Saint Nicholas
The Eskimos had shamans who would enter a hole through the chimney, in the ice house, saying prayers and leaving blessings and healing medicines for families and the ill. The word Shaman meant ‘one who sees in the dark’ or as we know it a person who has developed extra sensory perception.
This is a time where we can heal with our families and loved ones. A time of celebration of the heart and soul. I remember as a child waiting up in secret for Father Christmas to deliver our presents (blessings). I used to pretend to be asleep each Christmas so I could catch him and have a word and even offer to help. I’ve loved miracles and magick since my earliest memories.
One special Christmas I saw Father Christmas come into my room with a stack of presents. At the time I thought he looks really like my father. It slowly dawned on me it was my dad, all dressed up in bright white beard and red outfit. I thought to myself ‘wow, daddy’s helping during the Christmas rush’. The truth is, he was. He was helping spread cheer and love in our family during Christmas.
As a child we view everything as magickal , because we're naturally more connected to the wonder of life and love at a young age. Like most people, when I grew up, I grew a bit more cynical and had to find ways back to my magickal Rainbow Child. That place we all have inside ourselves where we dare to believe in love, spirit and miracles in life. My journey of meditations and healings took to me Theta Healing and it’s helped me reconnect with unconditional love and awe at the mysterious in life. Wishing you all a Merry December and a fantastic New Year.
Join us, making 2012 your best year ever.
