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.

It is nearly Thanksgiving in the U.S. marking the official beginning of the holiday season. Know that in this unique time of the year there is an awakening in you of the spirit of Gratitude. It is the true essence of Thanksgiving. When you can immerse yourself in the flow of pure Gratitude, it catalyzes new abundance in every area of your life. Gratitude can provide a new containment field for your heart to open into. It is a true gift for yourself when you live in Gratitude. The power of giving thanks can help to lift you above the appearance of disharmony so that a new life emerges within you opening doors to amazing possibilities you never imagined.
Your deepest dreams are being awakened now and your heart is being offered an opportunity to create manifestation of your deepest Soul’s longings. When you open to these desires that have the potential to fulfill you in massive ways, an energy begins to work in you that you have never experienced. It is like the unlocking of the gateway to a new dimension with thanksgiving as the key.
The creation of new attitudes of thanksgiving in your life attracts new streams of light-filled energy to bless all that is honored in this way. When a blessing of thanksgiving is made in any moment, it confers light-filled Divine energy upon the person who sends it, as well as the situation being blessed. In challenging times it may seem difficult to find something to feel grateful for. In spite of this difficulty, one way to create a positive change in your life is to give thanks for what you have now. You can even give thanks in advance for what you want to create. This allows a shift in your perceptions so that you begin to attract new beneficial energy into your life.
Gratitude is an attitude that can profoundly change your consciousness. When you live your life in thanksgiving, it can affect your being at a biological level, training your mind and body to live in a higher state of health and well-being.
When you find nothing else, you can give thanks for just being alive so your soul will evolve. It is a gift to be in a human body and your body is a miraculous instrument. Consider the fact that you have a heart within you that needs no conscious assistance on your part to continue beating. Remember that you don’t have to tell your digestive system to do its work.
All of these body parts are functioning in a wondrous Divine plan of perfection. When you turn your attention to these systems within your body, when you begin to give thanks for the incredible processes that continue 24 hours a day within you, they will function at a higher level. Your focus of attention with gratitude and blessings will bring more light and strength into your vital organs. For extra energy, consider filling these organs with a healing color such as pink or green, which brightens them with Divine Light. For fun you can then imagine a smile on a body part such as your liver or your heart. This will not only bless your organs, it will lighten your mind.
Gratitude is the Attitude that will take you into your Heart. Consider the idea that your thoughts are like prayers reaching out into the Universal flow of life. When you use your thoughts consciously, they become prayers that shift your perspective so you can see a greater picture of what is actually going on in your life. Prayers of gratitude are very powerful, and stimulate an increased flow of spiritual energy into every situation. This force can create miraculous change for good in your life. It may take a little effort to find something to be grateful for when you are feeling down, but prayers of thanksgiving can help create a beautiful shift in your mind when you do so.
It is vitally important for your future to nurture compassion for yourself, the mistakes you made as you were learning about life, and forgiveness for the person you were in the past. Be grateful for all that you have learned and all that you are. This act is a good beginning for a peace filled and happy future. You can open new doors for tomorrow with your grateful thoughts today.
No matter how it feels, you are never alone. You are here on earth to remember your connection to the Spiritual Presence in your life. You are meant to live a happy, abundant life with deep fulfillment. In order to do this, it is necessary to step out of the challenges life presents and into the flow of God’s love, which will bring you more creative solutions. There is one place where you can always go to feel the power of Divine Love, and that is in your heart. Gratitude is the attitude that will take you into your heart. It does not matter if you see nothing in your life for which to feel grateful, just the act of giving thanks opens a door in your heart to allow Divine Love in.
Sometimes it seems as though prayer is difficult or there may be negative associations with organized religion from childhood. Perhaps some suggestions for prayers of thanksgiving can be useful. Here are some possibilities for prayers that may help you to lift your thoughts and connect your heart to the essence of Gratitude. You can choose one or more that resonate with you and use them as a spiritual practice for the day. Masters suggest 21 days of a practice to create a new habit within your brain.

Thank you for my amazing body that is strong and flexible, and for the organs within it that are functioning with perfection. Bless each cell and fiber of my being so that it is filled with your Divine Light.
Thank you for the forgiveness growing in my heart and the compassion within me for the person I am right now. Help me to also have compassion and understanding for others as they walk their own path in life.
I AM thankful for the new awakenings of Love and Abundance all over the world in the hearts of each person embodied at this time. Thank you for helping me to live my life in Harmony and Well Being, and to be a radiant light for Divine Love in the world.
For these and all my blessings, I say, “Thank You God.”
May this time of Thanksgiving fill your heart with a new awakening to the Loving Presence within all things and bless every area of your life with pure Gratitude.
So be it. Be it so. Amen.
