Christmas Reflections

Meaning of each day in December until Christmas

Remember the unity and balance in all things and beings.            

May you be open to this blessedly time.

Prepare yourself for the newness to come.

May your heart be happy and sing and bring you a new vision of life. A day to invite light and hope into your home and to receive the gift of your new blossoming in the heart.

The fifth day is full of hope and joy, you stay in the here and now.                    

Look back and recognize your blessings of past paths, give joy and co-operate with others. Opposites can unite, dual powers don’t have to be opposites.            

Listen to the voice of your heart; it will bring you great beneficent for the next round on earth, the new year.

You can finish something old.

Trust and confidence carry you.

Today you can dare something ‘new’.

Today you will succeed.

Let your heart sing and cheer.

The thirteenth day will bring you power and peace. Celebrate the ‘we’, the community and love - who was accompanying you this year?  Who will go with you to follow new paths? Share your love and feel gratitude, so it may increase and honor life.

New doors will open; let your heart be touched.

Today you will find courage and energy - a new action, that feels good.

The new moon shall turn things around, a merry message will present itself.

The angels sing and will bring you light and love.

Cherish good wishes and feelings, rest in calm and in silence and listen to the divine voice.

Your guardian angel will present you with a loving message.

Let your star shine.

Today is Yule Night and as in old times, one prepares for the new light that is about to break; to receive the light in the night, sweep away the old, listen to the whisper of your soul, realize and read the signs, the oracle in this night - and select from the abundance a bright and new ‘you’.

Enjoy this Christmas time - feel joy and love.

Your home shines in a new light and you open up to the mysteries of light.

Allow your heart to receive the light and open it wide - forgive, forget and be grateful. You are worthy to be loved, to be happy and healthy. Let love and light flood your heart. The eternal tree is bright and shines. I, the soul am complete and enough - receive the golden rain of blessings and share it with the whole world. This new light illuminates the earth and reminds us of the eternal light and that a new day is dawning.

The greatest gift on Christmas, the Holy Night, is the light of love. You are being blessed by the great secret, so share and celebrate with great joy and happiness and honor creation, the eternal source, at any time, at any place.

Now the holy nights begin - listen to the whispers, notice the new seeds of light, how they stir within; the new year gets ready.
Until the 6th January you will find out what is to come, what is and what was.
Can you re-negotiate your destiny and change old things into new fortune? 
The gates are wide open, walk through and notice the signs, and set the course.


Some background on the meaning of the time leading up to Christmas

During the pre-Christmas time we touch the origin of our existence, create change and new strength in our life. It is a magical time, a time of inner reflection. The angels are close to the earth, guide us into the right direction and support us whilst passing these inner change processes. We can turn to them at any time and walk with them in the light.
We turn within to reflect, finish old things, rest and pause and recharge with light for the next round on this earth, the next year. The spirit of Christmas is a magical time of love.
Take at least fifteen minutes every day now and sit in solitude, be still and watch your dreams and insights during this time, as they are signals for the new year.

Like at the Hindu Festival of Diwali - the Festival of Lights, Christmas time is celebrating the rebirth of the light and is considered a holy time. Even in pre-christian times people celebrated the Yule Fest or the Yule Nights. Life depends completely on the light of the sun. This new light also wants to be received within us, so we can carry it into the new time, the new year.
Customs and system have changed with time, but the time systems have always remained the same, as the ever returning cosmic powers navigate themselves according to the sun, the moon and the earth. They connect us to the great cycles, the recurring cycles of this earth and life and connect us to the wheel of being.
At this time we also feel in a good and blessedly way the power of our ancestors and our roots. We are part of a great cycle of people who came before us, who are with us, and those, who will be after us. We also will stand amidst the ancestors one day.

During pre-Christmas time we run through a process of twenty eight days. Four times seven is twenty eight. This complies with the moon cycle where powers run out and build up again. It is an excellent time to let go of old belief systems and create new positive thought patterns.

Q What old belief systems would I like let go?  What new thought patterns would I like to replace them with.

The christmas wreath symbolizes the wheel of fate, that is being newly fathomed. It represents four paths, four cardinal points and the four main universal powers. It symbolizes the process of creation, the materialization and tells us: ‘What ever we sow, we shall reap and what ever we give into the great cycle, returns to us’. The spirit of Christmas is an alchemistic time, that is connected to the might of fate and the creative forces. Nowadays people either tinker or buy a wreath and light four candles, starting with the first one on the first sunday of December.

The first Christmas calendar ever was presumably created around 1851. 24 pictures were hung on the wall or 24 strokes were drawn onto a door, to count the days until the light was reborn. Todays Christmas calendar starts on the 1st December and ends on 24th December. Twenty four surprises sweeten the anticipation of the Holy Night.
