The Spirit of Christmas

SibylDec2018

First Published in Sibyl Magazine December 2018

It doesn’t seem that long ago when I sat with my children on Christmas Eve. Together, we placed a bowl filled with water at the base of the Christmas tree for the reindeer, and not to forget they could be starving travelling so far from the North Pole carrying SO MANY PRESENTS. We then had to ensure there were plenty of carrots for them to eat to keep them healthy for their long journey.

Then Santa, oh Santa he had to be taken care of with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies out of the oven and a big glass of milk because that was his favourite.

As a parent, I loved Christmas. The excitement the decorations, the spirit of family coming together, and the smiles that seemed to light up with every Christmas decoration adorning each house in the street as night fell and lights sparkled.

My children, a son and daughter, were so excited Christmas Eve they had to sleep together in the same room. Surprisingly it became a tradition which lasted well into their teens. Laughing, I’m not sure to this day, whether they carried on that tradition for themselves or for me. You see they knew I loved Christmas and loved to create magic around that time of year.

Then, they grew up left home, and it didn’t quite seem so much fun, so much magic. There was no need to set up the treats for the reindeer and Santa on Christmas Eve. There was no need to creep around the house and place the presents carefully under the tree. Now, my home was quiet on Christmas morning. No children’s squeals of delight as they saw Santa had eaten his biscuits and drank his milk and the reindeers had munched on some of the carrots leaving a terrible mess.

No Christmas wrapping was strewn all over the place as they excitedly unwrapped each present and beamed with delight. That was the magic, not so much the Christmas presents for I never had money to spend extravagantly. It was their faces, their appreciation and gratitude which created the magic in the room that sparkled with love, happiness and laughter.

Then me baking waffles and pancakes in the kitchen for our breakfast was our special treat. Waffles covered with ice-cream, maple syrup and seasonal fruit, and pancakes with sugar and lemon. My mouth is watering, and my heart is glowing just remembering.

For some years, I sadly lost my Christmas spirit. There didn’t seem to be any purpose to it, until this year, something opened inside of me, and the magic was reborn. An outpouring of love and gratitude ignited within my heart, and the inner child began to dance. She inspired me to feel the magic and spirit of Christmas once again.

If you’re feeling saddened, remember you’re not alone. For the gift is in the magic, and the magic is within you. Give yourself permission and allow it to break through.

Merry Christmas,

A message from the Guardians of the Light channelled by Maria Lacey

The energy of love surrounds you. Let not your worry or concern dull your senses and belonging within this wonderful world we have. You our child of light are one with all that is, was and will be.

Wake up … Wake up…. For LOVE flows from an everlasting stream of light.

Today, let the world know of what has and is to come.

Joy our children of earth.

JOY in all its glory for you are moving the energy of suffering and clearing the debris of the past. Through this transformation all is possible.

The energy of love is that which is within all beings, the energy of love is filled with a light so bright it lights every darkened corner and illuminates all that is. The energy of love is filled with many wonderful possibilities of today and what is yet to come.

Our children of earth, do not allow the past to taint the present for all is forgiven, all is forgotten and all will be held within an embrace of love felt with so much kindness and compassion all else will dissolve. Love is here to stay and all that is not will eventually be gone.

Do not analyse our words, but feel, connect and energise for you are now moving into a new paradigm which is held with much lighter energy.

BREATHE IN AND OUT, SLOW DEEP BREATHS for breath is life and life is breath held together by love.

Recognise the wisdom within these paragraphs and ignite the union of body and Christ.

Illuminate children of earth and know all will be well.

Journaling with the Guardians of the Light

GOLWritingMariaLacey

Maria, the energy of light, is illuminating your path. Trust is the subject of today’s writings.

Trust the energy within. This would spark trepidation for some. Years of hurt from others. Betrayed trust and the most valued of all trusting oneself!!

Our children of earth to trust is to have an unconditional commitment to whatever the outcome. To trust is to know there are circumstances beyond your control. To trust is to know deep within your soul that whatever flows is what is available to learn from. To trust oneself is to love oneself knowing that at times you have allowed outside influences to stray you.

This is nothing new that you are not aware of.

Time
Reassurance
Unconditional
Step
Transmission

I’m feeling like my connection is not strong, so I ask this question. Why am I not receiving your guidance as clear?

Maria, you have been too busy in your head to trust this process.

Our child of light love flows through all things. You, our child of light have enormous potential, yet there are times you sabotage your efforts.

Trusting you is the hardest of all. (I knew what that meant, for they were referring to trusting myself)

To trust you, you must be grounded. You must be clear in your boundaries. You must know the truth of your heart. To know this, you must sit in silence and listen.

There are many who are in similar situations and only when they sit in the silence do they really connect and align.

Child of light do not be hard on yourself. Forgiveness is needed here. Forgiveness of oneself!

Only you make yourself do what you do. Each human being has free-will and therefore has a choice. To trust is to know the responsibility of your choices. The outcome is irrelevant.

I sat for a moment looking at the last sentence, ‘The outcome is irrelevant.’ Hmm, I suppose that IS trust, to have confidence in knowing that whatever the outcome, it will be okay.

I then realised it was their example of TRUST above that confused me a little, I say what did they mean by Transmission? Lift off? But I got it, see below:

Time (Sit in the silence)
Reassurance (From the silence you will feel connected and aligned with self)
Unconditional (Love is the key)
Step (Have faith)
Transmission (Communication begins)

Thank you, Guardians of the Light.

Our child of light, thank you xx

Until next week,

Inspiration – I’ve Never Really Been a Beige Person

IMG_4083

Inspiration, I wanted to talk about inspiration this week.

It’s been a very satisfying week. I’ve managed to action and finished my to-do list, and have been privileged to speak at my local spiritual centre and local business centre.

Inspiration comes to us in many ways. For me, it’s everything! Every breath, looking out and in nature, the sounds of the birds trilling outside my room. My gorgeous puppy when she looks up at me with her beautiful eyes, eager to play. Even, when I’ve fallen, and past hurts and challenges, and then the signs of hope that appear in such a simple way like, a white feather or dandelion floating around me.

Recently, I’ve had three consecutive experiences with a bright green grasshopper, not so commonly seen these days. The third was my puppy Maggie bringing one to me, intact mind you, and dropping it at my feet. Do you think I needed to take notice? Definitely, and I googled the spiritual meaning, and it indeed was inspirational.

All these experiences whether miraculous or challenging have created a magnificent tapestry of my life, and how exciting and colourful! Smiling, I’ve never really been a beige person.

The accumulation of life’s experience is how I walk my path because I love to dive in deep and also enjoy skimming across the water for a different view.  My life is my inspiration for it enriches me as a person, and with faith, the stories can be shared to support, and bring hope into the hearts of those willing to listen or read.

A beautiful colleague of mine came to my recent business talk and afterwards shared how she loved the fact when I was speaking, it was like having a conversation. She didn’t feel talked at but felt included.

Another beautiful soul messaged me after my talk at the spiritual centre and wrote, “Thank you for the talk on Sunday. It hit home for me in a big way. Keep up the good work.”

Sitting here in my sanctuary writing, I feel a gentle warmth of gratitude filter through me. Thank you, thank you, thank you I whisper to myself. So grateful to be walking this path, and thankful for you reading and inspiring me to write and share on this platform.

Until next week,
