The True Meaning of Christmas
Christmas will soon be here and many of you are busy preparing for this festive season. In your busyness, take time to remember what Christmas is all about—a time to celebrate the birth of Christ, a man who walked your earth many years ago bringing a message of hope and peace to the world. His biggest message was about love and forgiveness of yourself and others.
What can you do during this season to demonstrate love towards yourself and others?
Where can you bring forgiveness into your life?
Christmas is a time of great joy and yet for some, it is a time of great sorrow.
Who in your life are you ready to forgive? Who do you feel is the least worthy of your forgiveness? No matter what someone has done to you, if you are ready to forgive them and extend love to them, you open the door to your own freedom and salvation.
Holding on to a grudge or to resentment towards another hurts you more than them in ways that you can’t even begin to understand. If you feel you simply cannot forgive someone because you think this will mean you are letting them “off the hook” this is not true.
Forgiveness does not equal condoning one’s actions. It simply means that in spite of what they’ve done, you recognize that they simply acted from a place of forgetting who they are, and your inability to forgive means you have forgotten who YOU are.
We are all ONE and what we do to another, we do to ourselves. If you fully understood this, you would not hurt one another for you would know that in doing so, you are also hurting yourself. Holding on to anger, or resentment towards another keeps you in this negative vibrational energy field and prevents you from fully experiencing all the peace, love, and joy that is available to you.
We invite you to open up your heart and your willingness to forgive another, even if you do not know how to do this. Seek the assistance of someone you trust and ask your angels and guides for assistance as well for they will leap at the opportunity to support you in this way.
Let this be a time of year for letting go of ALL hatred, anger, or resentment that you have been carrying around within you so that you will truly experience a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
This is such a delicate topic. When this message was coming through me, I couldn’t help but think that some of you reading this or hearing this message might react with anger, believing that there are some who have done such horrendous acts that they are not worthy of being forgiven and I totally understand this.
It’s hard for us to wrap our heads around the idea of forgiving someone no matter what they’ve done to us or to another. I struggled with this for years until I realized that forgiveness doesn’t happen in our heads, it happens in our hearts.
Once I chose to open my heart and was willing to forgive those who I felt hurt me, I also opened up the pathway for my own healing to begin. I can’t even begin to express how much freedom this has given me and how much peace, love, and joy has come into my life as a result.
The whole idea of Oneness is another concept that took me a long time to understand and it’s making more and more sense to me every day. Since I choose to accept that I am one with you and with all other beings on this planet, then on behalf of those parts of me that hurt you I ask for your forgiveness as I express to you my deepest sorrow for any pain I may have caused you.
I extend to you my love and blessings and wish you the most magnificent Christmas ever.
