It doesn't take long for them to show up. As I place each ornament carefully on the tree my awareness shifts and allows me to easily feel and see my passed-on Loved Ones who understand this is one of the best times to reach me. I get to converse with these Spirits as easily as I did when they were in the physical realm. Before long the room, and my heart, is full of loving energy.
Each ornament and decoration I touch contains a memory of Love and, occasionally, my Being will overflow with emotion from that Love, leak out of my eyes and roll down my cheeks.
After the decorating is finished some Loved Ones will have moved on while others decide to stay awhile. I let them know they are welcome to visit for the entire Holiday Season and often see glimpses of them as I go about my post-decorating activities.
I understand that not all of the memories and ghosts of Christmas are positive ones for some individuals. If you are feeling overwhelmed by what the Holiday Season evokes for you I offer you my deepest condolences and a wish for a lighter heart for you. As well as a hope that the ghosts of Christmas allow their Love to enter your heart and Heal the hurt within.
