Those of you who’ve been reading my weekly messages for a few years know that during this season I venture out among the shoppers to take the pulse of the collective consciousness. I do this by looking at the colors and decorations adorning our malls and stores, and talking to sales people and shoppers.
This year, the word I’d use to describe the theme of the decorations is ‘classic.’ The dictionary defines this as “judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind.”
Everywhere I went the main decorations were classic Christmas trees, decorated in big red, gold and silver balls with lots of lights.
When I talked with sales people and shoppers, for the first time in my research there were no “favorite” ornaments, though I noticed the ‘new’ ornaments were woodland animals, made of a bristly type of material.
Red was predominant. Yes, it’s the color of Christmastime, and it’s the color of Love. It is the warmest color of the spectrum. It’s exciting and energizing. It’s the color we relate to sexual energy, and also to anger. It’s used to get attention and it’s used to denote courage.
Silver is about reflection and cleansing, and also intuition. Gold is about confidence, wealth, higher ideals and wisdom.
I interpret the underlying message to be that we want our lives back! We’re tired of the political bickering and underlying rage. We’re tired of being afraid to go outside. Our intuition says there’s more to life than the acquisition of things. We’re ready to passionately live a life that is the highest and best for all. We have the courage to move this cleansing period so that our lives reflect a new confidence, higher ideals and the wisdom that we know is possible. We’re ready to live life authentically!
Breathe deep, regardless of appearances, the future looks good.
Gratefully I acknowledge the Presence of The Divine. It is speaking to me from every corner of the Universe and It is saying “Remember who you are – you are My Own Self.”
I breathe deeply and let go of anything that no longer serves me. I am open to the experience of the season as it moves through me. I recognize that I am the one who must make the difference in my circle of influence, and I choose now, to live in peace and love and harmony. I live from a deeper place than I ever have before, and I see before me a world that works for everyone. I keep this Vision foremost in my mind. Life Itself is living through me, with ease and grace.
How grateful I am to remember this. How grateful I am to be a vehicle for Love in our world. I release these words into the Law of Mind, knowing they are so. And so it is.
