Christmas is our natural state of being.
And I'm not talking about family arguments and days off work.
At Christmas we give and receive in a way that is most congruent with our higher selves.
At Christmas when we receive a gift we receive it just because we want it. We desired something, we put it on our Christmas list, someone who loves us got it for us just because they love us and want us to be happy in the receiving of it and we receive it just because it makes us happy ... and because it's Christmas.
This is the energy in which to receive everything from anyone or just from the universe. Just because you want it. Just because it makes you happy. Just because you love it. Just because you desired it.
At Christmas when we give a gift we give it just because someone we love wants it. They desired something. It will make them happy. We want to see them happy. We give them what they want.
This is the energy in which to give anything to anyone. Just because they want it. Just because you want them to have what they want. Just because you want them to be happy.
Both giving and receiving make us happy. It's a delight to give to others and see them happy. It's a delight to allow others the pleasure of giving to us, too.
Some people say that stuff doesn't make us happy, but it's not the stuff that makes us happy, its the energy exchange that makes us happy - because we are creator spirits who crave connection and energy exchange. We thrive off our connection with others because we are all one. There is no better way to connect with others than to give and receive.
It's also very important to be balance in our giving and receiving. If you give too much without receiving you are condemning someone to less joy of giving. If you receive too much without giving you are doing yourself out of the joy of giving.
Let giving and receiving flow back and forth to and from each other just like it's Christmas - just because it makes us all happy. Allow yourself to receive from others just because it makes you happy. Give to others just so that they feel happy, too.
Let every day be Christmas even if just in your mind, give and receive freely!
