The Divine Universe is always sending us beautiful messages and often through the most amazing avenues. Last Christmas I received an exquisite gift. I did not realize how truly extraordinary it was until a few days after I opened it. It was a facsimile of Santa Claus standing in an elegant phone booth (which, in itself, is an interesting concept). However, the breathtaking thing about this gift is that when turned on, the phone booth immediately flooded with infinitesimal, dazzling gold lights which circulated unendingly throughout the booth.
A couple of days after Christmas I placed this curious Santa on the top ledge of a high bookshelf built into the wall where it overlooked several other beautiful lights arranged on the shelves below: alabaster fir tree candles, a three dimensional figure of a yoga with a lotus flower adorning it and several small battery operated candles in lovely shades of pale blue and green. The effect of the luminescent ballet was stunning but my eyes were constantly drawn to the top shelf where Santa in his phone booth continued to shimmer and glisten in Aurelian splendor.
After a while I realized something extraordinary about this gift. Santa, of course, is a symbol of generosity and love. And the glistening lights in the phone booth were clearly there, I realized, on special assignment. They were drawing my constant attention in masquerade, a celestial reminder of my Higher Self, I realized, always there connected to my heart, available for consultation and guidance. Whether I can see her or not, my Higher Self is clearly shining brightly through every moment of my day.
There have been some challenging moments for us all this holiday season and now, for Christmas, I have found myself again being given the gift of remembrance of what is already waiting for me. EVERY time I have looked up at Santa in the phone booth I have seen it glisten and sparkle. There is no question in my heart that I might be left in difficult moments without heavenly resource and support.
I am wondering...Is there something glistening on your metaphorical bookshelf or perhaps tucked away in a subtle corner of your life that can help you also remember the energy that is circulating so vibrantly, ready to envelop your life with the wisdom and beauty of love.
What a lovely reminder I have been given with this gift: MY Higher Self is always present, energized, sparkling… ready to share its glorious energy of love.
Take a moment and check in to the beauty and wonder of the season. Perhaps you, too, have been a messenger this Christmas of an important message or even a recipient of a very special delivery just for you.
