Before I started writing this blog about the holiday, I decided to reread the blog I wrote last December. For the most part, the words still ring true. This year, I will be physically back home in the house I used to own as well as spiritually home within myself. So it is with the current energies. It is time for us to connect heaven and earth and the only way we can do this is to ground our vision and work in the physical.
I recently returned from a short trip to Maryland to see my nephew graduate from Test Pilot School. I flew into Washington's Dulles airport. The airport has these "transporters," for lack of a better word, that take passengers from one terminal to another and literally dock to the terminal. It reminded me of something out of Star Wars. These transporters are a great analogy of where we are energetically right now. We left the higher realms and are now being transported back to earth to dock with the energies in this realm. While we are being "shuffled off to Buffalo" we are in no man's land. No wonder we feel like we are in limbo.
This in between place is not easy. I am so close to completing the first phase of my school of self-mastery that part of me wants to keep moving forward while another part says, "Not yet." I keep reminding myself to think of this time as though I am on holiday. After all, it is the holiday season and everyday is a holy-day filled with wonder, gratitude, and joy.
While we hang out in limbo land and wait to dock, I'll leave you with my thoughts from last Christmas. Enjoy the down time. Things will accelerate even more in 2009!
Home for Christmas (first posted 12/9/2008)
As I was driving this morning, the song "I'll Be Home for Christmas" was playing on the radio. Several people have asked me where I plan to spend Christmas. My answer has been, "I don't know." As soon as I heard the song this morning, I knew where I would be. I will be home this Christmas, perhaps for the first time - home within my heart, within the essence of my being. I will be home with my God Self.
I used to love Christmas. It was my favorite time of year. Ask anyone who knew me. I knew all of the words to most of the Christmas shows. Rudolph was my favorite. Before I left on my road trip, I sold or gave away most of my belongings which included my Christmas decorations. Guess my higher self knew what was coming.
It is interesting that this year Christmas feels out of place to me. When I look at my life, I see that I live Christmas every day. I celebrate each day: the joy of living in the moment, the wonder of nature, love for all of God's creation, compassion and forgiveness for my debtors, healing the "sick", and using my intuitive abilities to act as my star of Bethlehem to guide my way. Christmas, the time of Christ, of living as the God that I am, does not fall on one day a year. It is a way of life.
This year, I do not celebrate the birth of a man who showed us that we all are God incarnate. I celebrate my birth, or rather rebirth, of the God that I am. "These things and more shall you do", Jesus said. If he was able to heal the sick, help the blind see, and master his intuitive abilities, then so it is with all of us...and more.
When you listen to Christmas songs, I invite you to put your name in place of Jesus'. This is why he came - to show us all our divine nature. If we are made in the image and likeness of God, how can it be otherwise?
Joy to the world my God Self has come! I sleep in heavenly peace.
