What are your holidays like? Are the chestnuts roasting on an open fire? Sometimes before the Thanksgiving dishes have been cleared away, we are out the door and digging deep into our pocketbooks and spending lavishly on things we don't even care about. The sales are on and we are determined to survive the personal trials of "mall shopping." The bells are ringing as we get deeper into debt or upset because we can't find the right gift, or be with the right person. As plans are being made, depression sets in because we have to be with certain family members, or not be with them. As the holiday music plays on, we feel more anxiety and so we splurge on party food and drink or we starve ourselves from the stress of being lonely and frustrated.
Oftentimes we realize in January that we haven't implemented a simpler and happier way to experience the holidays. Make a decision early this season to use your power to create in a beneficial way. Life is one great big music scale. Nothing rests. Putting your focus on past negative holiday memories and all of the fearful, angry emotions will result in the same old results. If you persistently return to what frightens, saddens, and upsets you, you deny yourself relief for the future.
In other words:
What to do? Here are a few suggestions:
The Secret of the Law of Consciousness is that you are able to singularly conceive a new idea and without the aid of any man or woman, feel it to be true. Once fixed in consciousness this new concept will express itself in the world of experience.
In order to give birth to your heart's desires you must believe and feel as though you have already received the gift. If you have a desire for something, you must shape a new blueprint in harmony with your dream. Why? Because you only permit or accept things within the fixed limits of your beliefs and reactions. It is vital to dwell in feelings that are in tune with the realization of your dream because "like attracts like." It is important to detach yourself from all thoughts and feelings that would have you go in the direction of experiences in which you no longer wish to participate.
Consciousness is your "Womb of Wonder" capable of being impregnated with new impressions, and The Virgin Birth is the mystical parable or story of making the impossible possible. The moment you discover that your "awareness is your savior" you will turn your focus away from your problems. You will consciously replace the false images that haunt your memory.
As you shine the Light of Consciousness the Great Stars (the Three Wise Beliefs) of Faith, Hope and Love will warm and stimulate all your desires into fruition.
