Pure Love in Human Hearts Radiates the Universal Christ-Love.
Christmas time has always been special to me. Even as a child, it was not just about the gifts but also about the lights, the music, the connection with family. Some of my fondest family memories centered around Christmas. After my mom decorated our front room festively, she would sit quietly and gaze at the tree and listen to Christmas music. One by one, my brothers, father and I would eventually end up in the room with her, sitting peacefully enjoying the moments. This would happen many evenings up until the New Year. It was probably the only time of the year where we would all sit together in silence just enjoying this special time.
When the tree would come down, I often would get very pouty and sad. I didn’t know at the time what was going on within me. Looking back, I now know that my sadness was because those special moments were gone for another year.
As an adult, I still love the lights, decorations and music of Christmas. My house is very lit up inside and out. I realize the reason I love the lights so much is not just because they are pretty. It’s also because they remind me of the light inside myself and within others. And I have a strong intuitive feeling that in other realms of spirit, the light is quite amazing. I feel all of us who love the Christmas lights, are remembering on a soulful level, another time and space where we have a greater connection to the light.
At this time of year, there is also an energy circulating that I am pulled towards. Beneath the hustle and bustle of Christmas is an energy generated by the collective that centers around Christ Consciousness. There is a tremendous power in the Christ energy that is healing and uplifting. Stepping into this Christ energy allows you to channel a powerful source that is always there for you but is especially poignant during this time of Christmas, or of Christ!
I’m not sharing this from a religious perspective but more from an archetypal one. Whenever there is a person, place or thing that holds meaning for us it can become an archetype, a symbol, that embodies meaning and energy we can tap into whenever needed. When we allow and acknowledge the positive energy that a particular person, place or thing inspires in us, we can fill our being with it and become lighter, more buoyant and at times, healed.
Santa Claus can be used as a healing archetype if it embodies in you a feeling of generosity, miracles, and community. As a child, I thought it was incredible that Santa could visit all those homes and fly with the reindeer. My energy would become excited and happy with the thought of Santa. However, to someone else Santa could be just a weird old guy that breaks into people’s homes and eats their food! In the latter situation, the energy of Santa might not be quite so helpful.
In this time of the pandemic, I have been pondering on what this virus means to all of us in terms of an archetype. It certainly does not create a feeling of lightness or joy. In fact, to most people it symbolizes a completely opposite feeling of heaviness, fear and depression.
When I ponder over the fact that the virus seems to target the lungs of people, I reflect about how sadness and grief are an expression of imbalanced lung energy in Chinese Medicine. And in delving energetically into humanity worldwide, there is a tremendous amount of grief humans are carrying within themselves at this time.
I wonder if the real pandemic is this grief humanity is holding, and the damage from the virus is a physical manifestation of the grief. And in going deeper into this thought of grief as the pandemic, I ask myself what is the true antidote to the grief? Where does this grief arise from? Why is it so prevalent all over the world? What is the archetype that could help heal this grief within each one of us.
The answer I get on one level is quite simple yet very profound. As a species, many humans have lost the ability to connect with their hearts and to live from their heart center in their day to day lives. Unfortunately, there is much greed, corruption, and violence towards other humans, the animal kingdom and the environment. I myself feel deeply saddened by it. However, fortunately, there are many people waking up, stepping outside themselves to help another person, animal and nature. In essence, they are living more and more from their heart.
I believe we are moving towards a new energy that is centered around the heart. Pure love, as the quote above points out, embodies and radiates the Christ Consciousness. The energy of miracles. To me the antidote to this virus, is for each one of us to step into this heart energy as powerfully as we can. The shutdown is giving us a breather so to speak, a time to reflect, to ponder, to spend time in activities that raise our vibration. Or it can be a time where we grumble, complain or fight with each other which lowers our vibration. This time is giving us a chance to reflect on the grief we carry inside ourselves in order to transmute it into something of a higher vibration, of hope and peace perhaps.
Viruses and bacteria embody a lower energetic vibration. If we raise our own energy, and the energy of the world, then the virus will have less of a chance to be able to affect us as it will not have the sustenance it needs. Viruses require a living organism to replicate itself. If our vibrational energy is high, a virus won’t have the environment it needs to survive and thrive. The same holds true for life in general. A higher vibrational person most likely won’t attract someone who holds deeply negative thoughts and feelings and vice versa.
What if we all, as a collective, decided to raise our vibration every day, as much as possible even with the fear of the pandemic. What if we choose to embody the archetypes that allow us to feel more love. What if we made it a choice to not keep feeding lower vibrational entities with our negativity, fear and lack of kindness. What if we all decided to wake up tomorrow and greet the day with happiness for being alive yet another day. To greet each individual or group we meet with a smile. To treat all beings with kindness and love. What if we each made a commitment to not let ourselves falter, or to become enmeshed in lower vibrational thoughts and actions and fears.
Anything that creates a feeling of love in our hearts directs the energy of healing for ourselves and others. If you find yourself, enmeshed in negativity, look for something, anything to smile about. Even if it is a memory of Santa, or a Christmas past. Sometimes it’s hard to find something to be happy about in the moment, but if you look deeper inside or outside yourself you will discover many gifts surrounding you that can make you smile. Perhaps it will be the way the light shines on a wet leaf, or the simple pleasure of watching a bird at a feeder. Or the memory of running as a child. There is always something to smile about, if even for a second. In that second, you will have raised your vibration and the vibration of the world.
In this season of Christ Consciousness, I wish for all of you the pure energy of love. I wish for all of you the energy of this love to enfold you and to create miracles in your life and those you love. I wish for this love to enwrap all of those suffering around the world from COVID or any other illness, to be healed by this love and that the world will understand that the only true antidote to any pandemic or crises is the energy of pure love. Let’s spread the love and heal this pandemic of grief, pain and suffering.
Happy Holidays Dear Friends,
