Receiving the Gifts of this Holy Season
Hark! The Herald Angels are singing. Can you hear the Angel voices? They are inviting you into their midst. The Angels are calling you to rejoice in the Divine Love and Light streaming onto the planet during this special time called Christmas.
Can you hear the Angels whispering to you? Listen with your heart. Allow your whole being to be receptive to these Divine Messengers who have watched over you throughout your soul’s existence. They are here now with one voice singing the idea of Peace within all beings. Making a joyful noise, for they offer you the gifts of Divine Light and a Love beyond your understanding. Receive it into your being and shine this blessed Light out into the world.
Just be receptive now and allow Divine Grace to fill your being. This is one of the Angelic Gifts being offered at this time. Grace is needed to sanctify the Earth, and to bring greater coherence, respect and honoring of the gifts the earth supplies in abundance. It is time for the people to offer to themselves and to their planetary home the nurturing it needs to sustain life. When humans honor the Earth, they also honor the elements of themselves that make up the Earth.
In fact it is your birthright to live in harmony with the Earth, to feel Divine Love in your being and the power of Life Force surging through you in ever-increasing waves. Allow it to spark every cell in your body and increase love in your being. As you do this, you glow as a radiant light. It shines forth from you and you become the Light to the World that the earth needs right now. It is a choice for you to make moment to moment, and requires you to create an intention to receive the harmony you want in your life, and a mental flip of the switch within your thoughts to create it.
Becoming a Light to the world is not arrogant. When one carries conscious awareness of Higher Truth, it becomes your duty. As the apparent darkness of chaos and fear are so obvious, what could you need more than Light? At this holy time the Light of the Christ energy is more available than ever before. This blessing carries the energy of Divine Love into your heart and out into your world.
Feel this Light in you that holds the divine qualities of Wisdom and Love, and share it with others. Radiate Light to your government and the world leaders. Send it to areas of chaos in the world, and to those who work hard to ease the suffering in those places. Transmit Divine Light to the environment, and to all the living beings that are not human on this beautiful planet. Don’t forget to shine the healing Light onto yourself and your families. This energy brightens and reconfigures the power that inspires you into Divine Right Action. It is one way to bring harmony and overcome despair within yourself and the world.
And then there were Angels
As you celebrate the gifts of this Christmas season, there are many who remember the Angels during this time more than at any other time of the year.
Legions of Angels are gathering ever nearer the earth now, drawn by the prayers and the thoughts of so many people. This is a tremendous blessing that opens your heart to more love and allows your mind to receive a greater level of Grace. It is a good time to take a moment to honor and connect with your Angelic guides. Ask for personal assistance in all areas of your life and listen – really listen, as the Angels whisper in your heart. They want you to follow your heart’s message and feel the guidance available to you from the spiritual realms.
There is an Angelic representation for the Soul of the Earth and the Heavenly Realms. Your guardian Angel can work with these Angelic beings to bring more harmony within you so you can feel more connection to your Spiritual Source and more inner peace.
Your Guardian Angel
Your Guardian Angel has been given the duty to help you to live in alignment with your goals and intentions for this life. Through your personal guardian angel you can learn to live in greater peace with yourself as a prerequisite for Peace on Earth. This Angel is also offering to you the ability to feel Oneness and Union with your most Divine Self.
As you have grown into adulthood your Guardian Angel waits for you to ask for help. Consider that it is now time to ask. Your Guardian Angel has been with your soul since its incarnation, offering guidance and protection so you may find your Divinity and fulfill your spiritual destiny. This beloved angel has intervened on your behalf to relieve your karma and wants nothing more than the fulfillment of your soul’s imperatives.
Take time to feel gratitude for this Divine Messenger who has such care for you.
Archangel Gabriel and the Realm of Archangels
At this holy time of the year, there is also more awareness of the Archangels.
Archangel Gabriel holds the empowerment for the winter season, and stories abound of his intervention throughout the ages during the darkest nights. The Archangels are given Divine charge over all communities, nations and seasons. During the 12 Holy Nights beginning December 24, the Archangels freely erase all boundaries between nations and factions. The Light of True Peace prevails in the Heavenly realms, and can be called forth onto the Earth.
Join with the angelic host to spread this Light through your own life and pray for healing of all nations and families. Use this pervasive light from the Archangels to bring greater consciousness through you and all beings on earth. This energy can make a true difference, bringing Peace within all hearts.
The realms of the Angels are available as never before during this precious window of time.
The Twelve Nights of Christmas
There is a stillness of this season that pervades the northern hemispheres as the earth sleeps in the darkest time of the year. People know the sunlight will return, and it is the same with the spiritual realms. With faith, you believe that in the darkest times, the Divine Light will prevail.
There are ancient traditions that honor the return of the Light following the Solstice. As you allow your soul to rest in the depth of the darkness, you can symbolically come into the clarity of the Light and receive a much-needed gift by creating a personal ritual for this time that has meaning for you. Consider the beauty of the symbols within the Twelve Nights of Christmas. You can use the time from December 24 through January 5 as an inner journey to give birth to the sunlight in your being, and illuminate the darkness within and around you. As the Archangels use this powerful time to end separation, they create an opportunity for true world peace when the empowered energy is focused on peaceful coexistence.
The Twelve Nights of Christmas act as windows to your soul’s purpose and can empower your new year. Many traditions light a colored candle for each night. The Twelve Nights can be used as an opportunity to go back through the 12 months of your year and honor your achievements and the lessons learned. Each night can feature a spiritual hierarchy and a virtue that you would like to bring into your life in the New Year. It is a special time to pay attention to your dreams because they could be prophetic during the Twelve Nights. There is also an opening for the clear light of understanding and insights from the Angels that can work through you.
Some Christian traditions honor the 13th night, January 5, as Epiphany. As the twelve nights progress, you can set a goal for true clarity and wisdom to enter your mind and heart during the twelve nights. Is it not appropriate for you to receive a clear epiphany about your life as well?
Give and it shall be Given Unto You
It is a wondrous tradition to give freely during this Holy Season.
Your generosity of spirit and willingness to give opens the energy centers within your body so that God’s Infinite Love is experienced. This Divine Love is unconditional and flows so freely, all are blessed by its presence. When hearts and minds are touched in this way, there is a healing. You will never be the same. You can keep this sense of loving gratitude and willingness to give within you throughout the year by setting the goal to do so.
Peace on Earth and Good Will Prevails
By creating your personal traditions and meaningful ritual for this Holy Season, you can use the spiritual support that is available to you. With this support and your clear intentions, you can experience transformation within your being and blessings in your life. Do not let the material world overpower the beauty and depth that truly exists during this special time.
Remember the Angels are available in this Holy Season and be grateful for their presence. Once again these messengers from God are saying, “Rejoice! Awaken to the birth of the Christ Light within you, and praise God for the gifts and blessings abundantly available to all.”
Let this Divine Light fill you now. Allow it to enlighten your mind and heart, and illuminate every cell and fiber of your being. Your willingness and open-hearted acceptance of this Divine Love blesses your body, mind and spirit. Receive this gift and allow the Light of the Christ to be born within you this Holy Season.
Let this Light shine forth from you so there may truly be Peace on Earth and Good Will between all beings.
And so it is.

As the energy ramps up for the next Full Moon ( Friday, May 24 at 9:24 PM PDT), there is a powerful spiritual focus that must not be ignored. This full moon is called Wesak or the Buddha moon and is noted as the most powerful full moon of the year. The fact that there is also a lunar eclipse – the third in a very rare series – only adds to the enhanced energy you are experiencing. (For a full explanation of the Buddha moon, see http://www.buddhanet.net/vesak.htm)
It is said that eclipses offer opportunities for course corrections, and can enable you to see what changes you may need to make in the direction you are heading. Know you are in the midst of a profound spiritual transformation, so the spiritual realm in your life is the arena where you need to look for any course correction that is necessary. Remember that you are still in the Wormhole of Radical Transformation until the June 21 Solstice, so now is the time to work on what can be done to enhance your soul path.
The physical realm is still in a free-floating state of process, as the warm Jell-O-like energies mold into the new world that you are creating in 5D. So when you look at your life and see the changes you want to make, do not focus on the physical doing-ness that would be the past 3D tendency. All of life begins with a spiritual focus and then filters down into the grosser physical level. What is most necessary is your connection to your inner spirit, and you have an opportunity to do that in a way that is unprecedented. In fact, having your focus on a project of any kind would be helpful because many people are finding the free-floating feeling to be the most uncomfortable. It can be misinterpreted as emptiness or loneliness when in fact it is a void space just waiting to be filled with something wonderful, such as the dreams you hold in your heart.
Throughout 2012, and especially from the Solstice of December 21, you have been setting your energy course into motion. All the intentions, desires and clarity that you have created have been a focus currently manifesting as a formal structure yet to be in a form that you can recognize. But if you look within your heart, you will see how you have changed. You can feel the new consciousness, the new awareness that is just behind your heart at a pure Soul level, ready to take flight. It is as if you are growing the wings that you so longed to create in your life, the wings of your spirit unfurling in this new time so you can fly.
The Temple of Your Inner Spirit
There is a sense of magic in the air, do not mistake it. Let it draw you away from the outer focus of your world and create a new temple within your heart for your dreams to become clear. This Temple of your Spirit is a safe haven for you to return to again and again. It is there your Angels await you. They are waiting to soothe you and show how they honor your commitment to your ascension process. They are asking you to remain patient with this process and not to focus on what is still unseen in the world around you. They want you to see that when you turn within to the sacred temple within your heart, the action has been taking place there in great abundance.
Within your inner temple, the Eternal Fire of your spirit is burning with a force it has never achieved in your lifetime. You are gathering a powerful team of masters and angels waiting to assist you in the ascension of your soul as well as the planet. For these beings are very concerned, not only with your soul process, but also with the ascension of planet Earth into a new revelation of Light. The beings you have gathered to you are from many realms depending on your vibrational frequency. Some are Light Beings that have been with you since your very first incarnation and others are new for this time. All have been called by your soul for the fulfillment of your destiny in this lifetime. Latent within you are the seeds of dreams your soul is longing to manifest. These seeds are now awakening for you to call them forward into this potent time to help you create your new world.
It is a spiritual focus that is required for you now and there is not much you can do on the physical realm to force your dreams into fruition. However you can energize them, you can help them to gain vitality and grow juicy with Divine energy, and you can fertilize them with the compost of your emotional history. By doing this, you attract the assistance of those from the realms of Awakened Consciousness waiting to serve you. Indeed, you would be surprised how many Beings of Light are ready to serve you and carry your intentions into the world.
The Silver Lining in the Dark Clouds
As the dreams that may have been dormant begin to awaken, you have most likely noticed uncomfortable feelings coming into your awareness. These can feel like dark clouds erupting from the deep recesses of your subconscious carrying all the things about yourself that feel the most shame-filled, that cause you the most pain, and can lead to a sense of discouragement if you let the clouds take you over. What we want you to know is that there is a huge silver lining in those clouds that offers you the ability and the opportunity to finally clear away those sticky, habitual trains of thought and emotional upheaval. You can put to work that team of empowered Light Beings gathered about you who are willing to go where you command them.
This is a massive opportunity for you because the energy of this full moon eclipse carries the spiritual power to open the gateways to new consciousness. The Light Field of Freedom is there to help finally clear anything that stands in the way of your ascension. Wesak honors the day of Buddha’s enlightenment when he perceived how freedom lies behind the suffering and moved into Self-Realization. You can use that profound energy during this time as well. Recognize these old feelings as a learned response that is not who you are. It may be possible that it never was you, but a way you learned to behave because of your upbringing and environment as you grew.
There is pain in your heart mostly for the suffering you believe you brought into the lives of other people. Although you know that you would make new choices from the perspective of your growth in consciousness, you still have the feelings that cause you pain. It is this pain that you are being asked to lift from the sacred places of your heart. The Wesak Full Moon is a great opportunity for you to release patterns of suffering into the eternal fires of Heart Wisdom burning in your temple. Though you may have thrown it away many times; though you may have processed these painful memories with scores of therapists; though you may have asked and prayed for forgiveness, NOW is the time when the energy is strong enough to disintegrate these experiences and free you to move on.
Recognize clearly that the forgiveness you seek is there for you and offer yourself a huge field of Compassion. You have tried so hard to serve those who you feel you have wronged. You have tried so many ways to make amends for the past, and yet the pain has remained. Take the experiences that burden you, the pain that enslaves you and the old patterns of behavior into your temple now. Offer them to the Eternal Fire of your spirit and know that this time, you have all the support you need to really let go and be free. It is a new time and it is not possible for you to make your ascension dragging these old burdens from the past with you. They are not who you are, but now with the new awareness you carry and the help of your team of “Soul Specialists” you can make the shift of consciousness that will free you to move on.
Consider this a ritual of Spiritual Activation for the ascension of your soul.
A Freedom Ritual for Your Soul
Imagine that you are standing in the Temple of your Heart. Make it magnificent. Create the most beautiful and power-packed space you can imagine. It can be a natural setting that moves you or the creation of supernatural opulence. Whatever you need most. It is helpful if there is vastness and expansive vistas that allow you to sense the exalted expression of this time and place.
In the center of your temple, see the Eternal Fire of your Soul burning brightly. Surrounding this fire are all your most beloved guides, masters and angels. Know that you are safe and these beings are here for you. Being in your inner temple stirs you deep within and awakens in your soul the desires that you came into this life to attain, complete or learn. Your sweet guardian angel is holding you in wings of pure love to help you feel safe. She is letting you know that you are ready, and the time is right to pour your burdens into the fire like the dross they are. You are holding a box that contains the burdens, the experiences and the suffering you feel for the situations of the past. Your soul’s team of Divine Light Beings surround you with Love. When they raise their arms, you feel your consciousness lifting. They are helping you to gain the vibrational frequency that you need to rise above the old patterns. As they do this you feel an impulse of freedom to let go that you have never experienced. You are compelled to toss that box of old patterns into the Eternal fire and let it burn.
You are surprised at how easy it is to let go. It just happens as you follow the impulse from your heart. This is the grace that only comes when you are in alignment with your Soul.
As soon as you let go of your burdening box of old memories, a powerful Violet Transmuting Flame covers you from head to foot. Your energy field is filled with the brilliant Violet Light of your I AM Presence. You are enveloped in Love, Forgiveness and Grace. As you breathe in this Violet Light, you can sense every cell in your body awakening to a new frequency.
You have never felt so free!
You can sense the Beings of Light that surround you beaming Love and Joy through their hearts. And you feel enveloped in the power of their love. You know you have crossed a threshold into new life by letting go of what is no longer you. And it was so easy, so safe, so appropriate. There is nothing else you could have done. Your soul’s team of angels gather you in their wings of Pure Light now. They are inviting you to take the next step. Allow them to escort you toward a Gateway to your New Life in the powerful 5th Dimensional world of Peace now being created. There are massive Archangels standing at the Gate, and you are ushered through this opening with all the honor you deserve now. Let yourself be led through this gateway and breathe in the Joy of this new world. Let yourself join in the celebration of the heavenly realms, and know you are blessed and cared for as you begin this journey. You are being congratulated for your courage. When one soul has the willingness to let go of their old way of being and calls forth the assistance from the realms of Awakened Beings, the pathways to the Divine are revealed in a new way. The path is opened for those who follow behind you. In celebration, glorious activated energy from the many realms of Light rush in to assist you in your new life path.
We Say Awakening is Simple, not Easy
It does not matter how many times you have made this attempt to let go and be free, or fell on your knees to beg assistance. Nothing matters now except for you to remember the greatest dreams of your soul. Couple that with your willingness to let go and move into new pathways of Light. Accept the Grace being offered so you can participate in the creation of a new world that is based on Peace, Cooperation and Love. These are the motivating factors that will allow you to create the foundations of the life you are choosing from this point on.
Do not let the simplicity of this process negate the power that it holds to set you free. Remember that the vibrational frequencies of this time are more profound than any you have ever experienced, and know you have energetic assistance from the realms of the Great Mystery representing the new world of Divine Love that awaits you. If it seems like magic, just know that you hold the hands of the Greatest Magicians you have ever known. Your dreams are important for they hold the keys to the doorways of your soul’s evolution, and every step of the way you are being held in Wings of Pure Light. You are deeply, eternally cared for, and loved beyond your wildest imagination. Let this profound Truth carry you into the life where you really choose to live. And so it is.
