The Spirit Worlds Perspective of Christmas

Reviewing some of the published talks and addresses given by many known communicators from the spirit world such as Silver Birch, White Eagle and Red Cloud and others.

And of course through our own personal expereinces that our loved one who are now in the spirit realms join us in times of celebration, reminding us that they still walk with us as that love shared never dies.

We can show that Christmas and other celebrations are not only celebrated within the spirit world but also through our love that our those who we have known share our celebrations too.

For example according to Silver Birch, the spirit entity who communicated through the trance mediumship of Maurice Barbanell, certain groups in the spirit world celebrate the festive seasons. However, he pointed out that these celebrations were going on well before the Christian era gave there added meaning to them.

Red Cloud and White Eagle also speak of Christmas being a festival that predates the our Christian interpretation.

What is now regarded as the Christmas period, was a festival where the birth of the new sun was celebrated. Representing the end of the long cycle when there arose the first sign that new life was being born into the earthly world. Then, when the sun attained its full glory it was regarded as a period of resurrection. Silver Birch explained “Those times had significance to us because it was then that we received the greatest communion from the Great Spirit,”

"The festival of the birth of the sun was the most important,Silver Birch added, "because it represented the beginning of a new era. It was the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new one. Because the festivals were held in the world of matter, they were celebrated in the world of spirit. But this meaning has been lost and the spiritual meaning has now come out of them.”Silver Birch explains “Instead of celebrating the dawn of the new life, we now use it to withdraw from the world of matter to get new power of the spirit so that we can bring new light to the world.”

And interestingly it is this reference to ‘light’ that dominates so much of how the spirit world wishes us to be reminded of the nature of our true being at this time.

This can be shown through these words received from Spirit, when questioned upon the Christmas period.

"As you prepare to celebrate a festival of light in your world we in my world draw close, for it is a great interest for us to see your preparations and the effects that it has upon that great light that lies within each and every one of you.

For we see, that as you all take an opportunity to think of life, of their deeds and think of charity and compassion to others in your world at this Christmas time that one manifests such a wondrous light. It is but a shame that such wondrous light often only occurs in your world but once a year. If you could imagine the greatness that can occur in your world if it was possible that those in your world would sustain such giving, sustain such sharing of ones light, there will be great transformation in your world with the banishment of the darkness which frequents your world. With those seeking materialistic power through force, coercion and fear ignorant of their truth instead embracing that wondrous power that lies within them.

At this Christmas period allow that power of light and love that you have all manifested as you think of that love of others to be an example for you all as what greatness and love is possible not only during this time but instead to be part of your life each and every day.

Merry Christmas to you all.
