It has been an honor for me to participate in the 12 Holy Days of Christmas, a very special time of year where the veil is lifted between the two worlds. These worlds are really one with angels, teachers, and the Christ all awaiting our desire to know the truth of their existence. The concept of the Christ has been hidden in dogma and man's law. I believe the Christ to be part of the divine Trinity: Father, Son or Daughter (the Christ), and Holy Spirit Mother. The Christ is the "love of God made manifest." The Christ is not a person but an "office" or "position" we all attain to. I didn't say we were there, but aspiring to this. Jesus came to show us the way. He sacrificed himself to evolve the whole planet and each one of our souls. Why did He say, "You will do greater works than I." if the potential was not there?

The following quotes are from my book "Christmas Meditations on the Twelve Holy Days December 26 - January 6" My book is a compilation of my 26 year meditation journey with the 12 holy days of Christmas. My book can be used all year as we travel through each sign of the Zodiac. The years listed are the years I received that meditation.

CHAPTER 2: 1982 Our body is the temple where the in - dwelling Christ spirit is alive and waiting to be born anew. Love is sent forth from our being through our heart and through our words. Words are power to our world. We speak and it is done. The holy sound transforms cosmic energy to physical substance. Know that He listens and speaks through us. The Christ child is born each time we express love to all. That love purifies and heals all who receive it. Love guards our door to the Lord, where all beauty and understanding can enter and dwell. We give thanks that all are blessed in His name.

CHAPTER 4: 1992 Jesus came to show us the way, the way of the perfect son or daughter of God, the way to the truth, the path of discipleship where each man or woman becomes the Christ which is the "love of God made manifest."

CHAPTER 6: 1991 Our spirits are frozen in this time and space. We have come to make this physical world as perfect as the spirit world is. The divine pattern extends from Heaven to Earth. The consequence of this is separation. Our goal is to unite Heaven with Earth.

Jesus came to show us that the Christ Spirit can rest within a human being. The Christ presence of love is the perfected son or daughter of God. His presence can abide in a soul who has purified itself enough to welcome the growth of the Christ within. Through His many lifetimes, Jesus perfected His soul to welcome the Christ Spirit. His personality stepped aside and the power, love, and wisdom of God worked through Him. He became one with the head and the heart of the Christ forevermore.

1997 Service is a way to lift up humanity to its next evolution. We have been there before in our journey to Earth. The cosmic fire was lit when Jesus took embodiment and became the Christ. He came as the way - shower for all people. His mission in life was to show us what all men and women can do when they dedicate their lives to love and service.

We have all been here many times, some more that others. Everyone tries their own way to enlightenment. One way is not better than the next. One way is not necessarily "higher" than the other. All have their places in the soul experience of each individual. Each person is sent to Earth to learn certain lessons. We come in with our "wish list" of what we are here to accomplish. As each wish is checked off, the next one comes to the surface. As our lessons are learned, another star, feather, or jewel appears in our cap. We are here to get it right. Either we do it right now or we wait until the next time.

We come into each life with the necessary tools for mastery. It is our choices along the way that determine the outcome. Our lives are connected with those people who need our lessons too. A parent who cannot love may teach a child to love themselves unconditionally. Some souls just do not have the stamina to stay on the "right road." They become selfish and self centered, caring nothing about others.

The perfect life is possible when we give up part of ourselves for the good of all. The Master always has a moment to converse with the student, even if it is only one sentence uttered. When our lives can be given up for service, we know we are on the path to becoming a Christed soul. Many lifetimes of preparation are needed to begin this process.

Once you set your foot on the spiritual path, there is no turning back. It becomes your greatest desire to glimpse the truth of our existence and to understand even one minute part of how this miraculous universe works. The quest for knowledge becomes the focus of your life. This great giant puzzle and its pieces seem to begin to fit together.

There is a reason behind every action of our universe. When you understand this, the smallest inconsequential exchange takes on new meaning. Your spiritual journey begins to be lived for each moment's sake, the "now." The journey's end becomes another vista of exploration and deliverance.

All this leads us to is the quiet of ourselves and all the reasons we are here at this moment. This passage has us alive, alert, and present at one of the most exciting times of our history. We and Mother Earth are about to graduate into the next dimension where the veils are lifted, and heaven is seen where it has always been, right here on Earth.

Believe it to be, and it will be. Our combined thoughts and prayers will create how we arrive in the next dimension. The whole answer is attitude. Do we see the world in chaos, or can we trust and know that everything that is happening is for our highest good in spite of appearances? God knows what She is doing. Remember to see peace, to see our Earth in harmony, to dream the dream. Then it can be the reality. See all life living in peace among nations, freedom for all to pursue their understanding of God Goddess. It is a blessing to be born into this Earth family at such a time. Give thanks and hold on to your hats. It's going to be a glorious ride!

CHAPTER 10: 1982 The Christ is the tree of life, where only the good fruit is given forth with tidings of love and joy. The Christ spirit forms in us as we grow in understanding and wisdom and become those qualities. Love stands forth triumphant. It shines and creates God given attributes. There is a mystic marriage between our head (the bread) and our heart (the wine). We grow into having a spiritual "communion" with the head and the heart of Jesus the Christ.

1986 The Christ is formed in us when we let go of all judgments, when we show and see only love. The personal self steps aside, and the glory of our Creator shines through. The Holy Spirit Mother brings all to our remembrance. She brings us to the wisdom necessary to allow the Christ to be formed in us. We are channels of the Creator's energy, all vibrating at different levels. His/Her perfect love comes forth to crown all those we meet. Love and compassion are the keys to creating the Christ Child within.

1987 The Christ is the perfect son or daughter of God. The baby Jesus was born in the manger, the ideal child. The Christ child is within our own being in the "manger" of the inner self, the "rainbow bridge" between the pineal and pituitary glands. The seed of the Christ is within, waiting to be born.

1988 The atoms of the physical body can become light. They travel at the speed of light, forming and disintegrating, then forming again. The atoms all spin in unison, clockwise for health and counter clockwise in disease. Atoms rotate in harmony with the heart beat of the universe, in harmony with the OM which reverberates in the silence. The OM (Aum) is the "lost word" of the Bible which keeps all spirit in physical creation, the sound that vibrates to solidify all manifested form.

"In Autobiography of a Yogi Paramahansa Yogananda says: " 'The Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said to you'(John 14:26). These Biblical words refer to the threefold nature of God as Father, Son, Holy Ghost (Sat, Tat, Aum in the Hindu Scriptures).

"God the Father is the Absolute, Unmanifested, existing beyond vibratory creation. God the Son is the Christ Consciousness existing within vibratory creation; this Christ Consciousness is the 'only begotten' or sole reflection of the Uncreated Infinite.

"The outward manifestation of the omnipresent Christ Consciousness, its 'witness' (Rev. 3:14), is Aum (Om), the Word or Holy Ghost: invisible divine power, the only doer, the sole causative and activating force that upholds all creation through vibration. Aum the blissful Comforter is heard in meditation and reveals to the devotee the ultimate Truth, bringing 'all things to your remembrance.'" (Explanation of "Aum" and "Christ Consciousness" Metaphysical Meditations by Paramahansa Yogananda)

1989 The Christ Spirit starts as a seed within each one of us. By our devotion to love and God's way, the Christ is formed within. We are traveling this road as our supreme goal in each lifetime. When the little "I am" gives way to the grand "I AM," the personal self vanishes and the Higher Self unites with the oneness of the Godhead, and then God Goddess works totally through us in love and light.

1990 THE CHRIST SEED Oh, that perfect seed as acorn grow. Within my lofty wings of light. Hidden there in soil of light and darkness. When one thought sprouts, the everlasting vine shoots forth And forms the child, who hopes, waits, And slowly understands that he or she Must become the Father Mother. To manifest the flawlessness of the seed, It is planted with "love absolute." Its desires and cravings are already fulfilled. Its dreams are already answered, if they call for the good. Its life is born to express the infinite joys Source has given us As eternal gifts.

CHAPTER 12: 1986 "I AM that I Am." . . . I Am the Father Mother, that you may be the sons and daughters of God. "I AM . . . " is the God aspect. " . . . that I Am" is the personal self aspect. "I AM that I Am" means God's power in eternity helps to create the I Am of myself. God's perfection can be in and through us. When His light shines, we show love, only love.


I look upon the many faces of God,

And in each one is the Holy Breath.

Within each one shines the spark of divinity.

His hands lie invisibly

Resting upon each shoulder.

He has written us upon the palms of His hands.

Within each form is the perfect seed of perfection.

Waiting to blossom and grow.

The Lord has as many faces

As there are grains of sand,

Drops of water in the ocean,

Shifts of wind through the air,

Flames of fire to heat and destroy.

His light is behind each one of our faces.

Some shine bright as a million stars.

Some are glowing even at night.

Each one's existence dependent on the eternal life within.

As we look at the many faces of God,

Remember, we are looking at ourselves,

Because as God is, we are . . . one.

Oneness. United. Eternally One.

1992 Let the Christ Child of Love be formed in me. Let His essence of life unfold in me. May His dream of the perfect life guide my being. Let His love embrace me and help me understand the beauty I AM. Let His light so shine that it illuminates my heart and my mind to appreciate and love in balance. Let the Child within become the reflection of the good Lord, to always and in all ways win with love. Let God's vision of the perfected world unfold before us. Let the love of the Christ be born within each one of us so that there is peace on earth. Let the love God has for us shine on each one of our faces and light our beings from within.

"Let the blessings of God rest upon me. (you) Let His peace abide in me. Let His presence illuminate my heart, now and forever more." (Sufi Song)
