Day Twelve of the Twelve Days of Christmas Meditations, Merry Christmas!!

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas...

Welcome to DAY TWLEVE of our 
Twelve Days of Christmas Meditations 

WE LIGHT. “We light this candle as a reminder of the Christ that is Light within ALL of us”

WE SIT. SOMETIMES WE DANCE. In a circle, prayer hands or not, open hands or not, holding hands in a circle could work. You can try some bowing and “Namaste”. Namaste translates into “The light in me bows to the light in you”, for me this means “the Christ in me acknowledges the Christ in you.”

WE SING. Amy Grant's Breath Of Heaven(Mary's Song). You can listen through the Spotify player at top left of page. ;)

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord 
Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy 
that we have been born again, because God 
raised Jesus Christ from the dead. 
Now we live with great expectation, and we
have a priceless inheritance- an inheritance
that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled,
beyond the reach of change and decay. (1 Peter 1:3-4)

Every moment of everyday, we have the opportunity to be born anew. Heaven really can be, and is, experienced on earth every day. Christ is the pure light within us- unadulterated by fear, worry, anger. Sins are lies, untrue thoughts about ourselves and others, that would confuse us into believing that we are anything other than our true nature, Love. God created us in His nature- we each have this Christ within us, as us, the pure Spirit of love that connects us with every other living soul in life. Fully remembering this truth about our nature brings about the experience of heaven on earth.  THIS is to have the Christ within us born anew moment-by-moment, day-by-day. So as you celebrate the birth of Christ today, pray that Christ will transform & transmute any sins(errored thoughts & untrue beliefs) within you into LOVE. Angels rejoice when we return to our natural state of being. Hark, the Herald Angels Sing! Merry CHRISTmas to us all!!

WE PRAY. You can try “God Our Father”, or any prayer of thanks here.

God Our Father(to tune of Where is Thumper)
God our Father
God our Father
Once Again
Once Again
Thank you for our blessings
Thank you for our blessings

Try a few “Thank you God for ____”, or "God Bless ____". 

WE BREATHE. Hilarious and Oh-so-fun for the littles. It's not so much about the OM as it is about creating a way for them to connect with their BREATH. Om is an ideal way to teach them to feel their breath. Deep breath in, and exhale OM{sounds like A U M}. Three times. No idea how to "Om"? Click here for the how, or just make up your own way! 

Happy Happy Christmas Eve!!!
