A Child is Born
The primal power of our being is our indwelling spirit, inner light, or the sacred flame that burns within us, giving us life. This has also been described as the Christ child or the inner child. We experience this warm, safe, and sacred space in our heart. At Christmas time we experience the rebirth of the Christ child in the manger of our hearts.
Metaphysically, the story of Christmas represents the rebirth of the Christ child within us; the story of our awakening to a higher perspective. We already have the energy and consciousness of the Christ child, but now we rediscover, reinvent, redefine, or give birth to a greater and fuller expression of that consciousness of the Christ child.
The best Christmas gift we can give ourselves is opening to the possibilities within us to be all that we are meant to be. We can give birth to our dreams and desires, and allow them greater expression. This is a time to make some positive changes, or discover a different part of ourselves that is ready to be given a voice. Perhaps we have a gift that is longing to be discovered. All that is required is willingness and opening to a new expanded Self-expression. We will be moved by the Spirit within to do the things that we are meant to do.
The mystical awakening of the child within us is like the conscious discovery of the primal power of our being and the desire and determination to stay connected, enabling us to reach toward our divine potential. This Christmas, may your heart be full and may the Christ child be reborn in you!
