No matter what religion you believe
in or even if you have none, this is the time of the
year that we are reminded of our relationship to the
Creator. Of course, there is a lot of gift giving and
eating and drinking and wishing everyone to have a happy
holiday, but that is not what is really important, except
maybe to the economy. What is important is that the
season causes us to pause and reflect, albeit only in
a cursory way perhaps, on who and what we are.
It doesn't make any difference if you are Christian,
Jew, Moslem, Hindu, Buddhist, or any other religious
belief system or if you don't even have one, we are
all called upon to think a little bit about ourselves
and perhaps others. I have called this article "The
Holy Light Within", but it could be called any
other name and it would still resonate with the light
that is inside every one of us.
When I do the prayers of protection before every session
I have with a client, whether the session is in person
or remote, I call upon us to find the spark of the Creator's
divine love within ourselves which is at the spiritual
center of our being. This spark of light is real
is the spark of the Creator's love that created us in
the beginning and sustains us through lifetimes. This
light is the manifestation of our divinity as we have
God the Creator within each of us.
This light within us makes us all brothers and sisters
and unites us in the universal love of our Creator.
It is said that we are all created in the image and
likeness of our Creator. This is a bit hard to believe
for those of us who are suffering physical, mental,
emotional or spiritual maladies, but it is probably
true. If the Creator created something as complex as
man, then it probably did so as a reflection of itself.
Why not? If Creator put its divine light and love in
man, then it most likely did so out of love for its
creation and made man its mirror image. Love is a very
powerful force. It can heal us and transform our lives.
God did not cause the problems we bear. Our problems
result from our free will, which the Creator gave each
of us along with love and a spark of divinity. We really
are divine beings. At this time of the year, we are
reminded that we are so and reminded to see this aspect
of ourselves in every other person.
Therefore, this is a great time to look within ourselves
and find that spark of light, focus on it and begin
to see ourselves anew as children of the Creator. When
we do this, we can begin to address the sources of the
problems we have in life and do something about them
rather than to continue to just wallow in self-destruction
and misery and blaming our problems on others or God.
Let us find our light this season and begin the task
of fixing ourselves if we are broken. We don't have
to stay broken, because everything can be fixed. That
is part of us. Hypnotherapy can help you get fixed.
