The day after Christmas. Boxing Day in the UK. In some ways a day of accounting — billions upon billions of dollars spent. Maybe the bucks are a measure of Christmas spirit. Maybe not.
No, I’m not here to Scrooge up the holidays. I love them. I only bring it up because I think that, in general, we invest so deeply in this season because of that which it represents. It’s a time we are reminded of miracles of hope, joy, help, kindness, and love. And I think many of us look to some superpower or benevolent benefactor to bestow some great gifts of hope, peace, and love.
Having said that, I believe most of the expressions during this season are expressions of love. I do not judge that at all. I’m thinking of the many hurting people today, those who feel let down, deflated, and maybe even defeated. The bright, beautiful trees and lights and gifts are one day old memories for the most part. And we wish the Christmas or holiday spirit would last all year long.
But the rest of the year, it seems we lack the miracles, the uncommon, super-kind expressions we witness and hope for. We assign our fate to outside agencies, people. And here is my point this evening: We create the miracles. It is our energy, our desires to know, experience, and share love and peace that make this season what it is.
However, not many recognize the individual power and authority we have for ourselves. We can create personal miracles from making a conscious decision to accept our own piece of Spirit in us, our Heart. And by accept I mean to acknowledge that we have it, to engage it as our primary operating system for our mind, soul, and body, and to fellowship with our own heart daily.
Miracles, then, are possible. And we can get very specific with them if we discover our Heart and discover ways to use that eternal, divine Spirit within to create our dreams. I’m going to suggest one way here, although many variations exist.
The holidays impart a feeling, a sense, a zeitgeist of general blessing and goodness, but do you know you get to be specific with how you want to feel? You get to choose the emotions, and do so specifically. It’s great that you can add to or change them anytime you want. So, how would it feel if you want to know peace, focus, and self-confidence? You can create that for yourself!
Yes, if you have chosen Heart, you create your own Purpose. Visualize it, but do so without adding in all the design elements, because Spirit does that and our Heart mediates for Spirit for those things. What I’m saying is don’t insist on the exact job or business you want; just use your ideal vision to gain the emotion. The form will come through the orchestration of Spirit, but you will be the emotion and well-being creator for yourself.
Visualize the emotions you want to feel by stating them in the context you see. Allow the effects of those feelings to wash over you. Actually feel the emotions; by doing so, you make space for the emotions to come.
Then, lay out your day in whatever formal or informal way you do. When you choose the goals of the day or just start doing things, be sure and plan on and do the emotions, i.e., do things in a way that you can feel the way you want to feel. Stay self-aware of your emotions and you will stay focused on your goals and Spirit will work the physical forms to conform to your emotions.
Because of this, the visualization of your actual physical ideal may change. For instance, you may end up with a Tesla instead of a Mercedes Benz. Oops! But that’s okay. If you say it doesn’t work or you are so focused on something like that specific brand or location or lover or anything else, you are allowing Ego to be functioning as the operating system. Ego insists on form, which is why so many people get what they want but still aren’t satisfied, still are left feeling empty. Even after opening all the presents and giving all the presents.
If we create our vision and live that vision based on how we wish to feel — based on Heart direction — we will create our own miracles all year through.
Questions to consider:
