The Spirit of Christmas

Well today is Christmas Day - a wonderfully quiet time on the psychic superhighway, so a great day for a a few thoughts.

Whatever our beliefs, today is a great day for showing gratitude for what we have in our lives. It is a time for giving, sharing, celebrating and joy.

For many Christmas is about expensive presents, over-indulging and family arguments. For others, it is a truly religious day, a celebration. There are many though who will spend this day alone, without any contact with the outside world, without a conversation, without a friendly smile - some have no home, no family, no place to go. For others, today is a day of work - for armed services, doctors, nurses, police, firemen, care workers etc - they will spend at least some of this day away from family and friends, away from the celebrations.

All I want for Christmas is for everyone's hearts to be filled with love and joy, and this is my way of sending out healing thoughts to everyone, to acknowledge those who are often forgotten, and to ask that we all come together to celebrate the true Spirit of Christmas - love.
