This is our guidance for the week of December 19 through December 25, 2016.
This beautiful card is from Colette Baron-Reid’s Wisdom of the Oracle deck.
“We notice there is much to receive and much to give in this week. We notice there is much to be in gratitude for.
“We wonder if you will remember to operate within your intuition. We wonder if you will remember to lead and follow with your heart. We wonder if you will open yourself to all that is.
“We notice in this week there enters the Solstice, the Hanukkah, the Christmas. We notice all come with great light and great peace and great joy and great gratitude.
“We wonder if you will hold these qualities in your heart and reflect them outward to all you meet.
“We ask for you to be in engagement with light, with peace, with joy, with gratitude. We ask for you to be in reasoning only with the heart.
“This we ask of you and this we give to you.”
What a beautiful message. What a powerful message.
In this season of exchanging gifts, we’re asked to remember that the greatest gifts we can give and receive are the gifts which fill the hearts of those to whom we’re giving and fill our own hearts in the receiving.
In this season of light and light and more light (and even more light with Kwanzaa entering on the 26th) we’re asked to be light and to reflect light and to give light and to receive light.
None of this giving costs anything beyond the most minimal choice and effort; beyond the grace of openness and willingness to give and receive.
May it be as we sing carols and light candles and gather in ways big and small that we remember to be the very purest form of ourselves, with every beat of our hearts.
Blessings be. Happy Solstice. Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukkah.
