A CELEBRATION OF ANGELS
As we celebrate the gifts of this Christmas season, there are many who remember the Angels at this moment more than any other time of the year. There are legions of Angels gathering ever nearer the earth now, drawn by the prayers and the thoughts of so many people. This is a tremendous blessing, which opens your heart to more love and your mind to receiving a greater level of grace.
In ancient times, people were very receptive to the presence of Angels. The Bible is full of references to Angelic appearances. However, at no time is there more mention of the presence of Angels than before the birth of the Christ child.
Angels appeared to the parents of Jesus, and to the Shepherds and Wise Men before they made their journeys. The Angels foretold the appearance of the Christed One and the blessings of Peace on the Earth.
The presence of Angels is here now in this modern time as well. Once again these messengers from God are saying, “Rejoice. Awaken to the birth of the Christ presence within you, and praise God for the gifts and blessings available to all in abundance.”
Take a moment now to imagine that you are a shepherd in a field watching over the sheep. These sheep represent your responsibilities in life. It is dark and you are very tired. Aware of the requirement for you to stay vigilant, you long for respite, a way to lift the burden of your cares. You look up to the stars that cover the sky above you in abundance. One shimmering star catches your attention. As you watch, it grows into a brilliant 8-pointed star. It sparkles with rainbow colors and fascinates you with its radiance. You can’t take your eyes away from this star and it grows in your awareness until suddenly, you realize, there is an Angel standing before you. This radiant being of Light smiles benevolently, the eyes of this Angel shine deeply into your soul, and your heart begins to melt in love. The Angel’s wings are so magnificent, their brilliant golden light conceals the darkness of the sky.
As your heart opens, Love fills your being. Allow your spirit to lift as you hear a beautiful voice filling you with gladness. “Behold,” speaks the Angel, “I have come to awaken you to the glory of this time. Within you now the Christ is born. You have been chosen by God to receive this gift. As you allow the Christ spirit to grow, your heart will be continually filled with Love. All sins are forgiven, as the darkness within you fills with the Light of the newborn Christ. You are the beloved child of Divine parents, and you are blessed. As you shine this Christ light into the world, those around you will become more aware of their light and all will be healed. Your loving presence will reach out to mend old wounds and Peace will prevail, not only within you, but on Earth as well.”
Let the Light of the newborn Christ fill you now. Allow it to enlighten your mind and heart, and illuminate every cell and fiber of your being. Come, celebrate your gifts and let the Divine Light within you shine forth, as you become one with the spirit of this Divine presence.
Celebrate the birth of the Christ consciousness within you along with a heavenly host of Angels. Hear them sing praises, “Glory to God in the Highest, and on Earth, Peace and Good Will within all beings!”
Receive this gift from the Angels. Allow the Christ to be born within you tonight, and let this Light shine forth from you now and ever more.
So be it. Be it so. Amen.
