ABOUT THIS SONG
Though Christmas is based on a reality story, the actual placement of the holiday is based on a Pagan holiday. Curious. In the bigger picture the cycle of the seasons and their impact on humans are at play. After the time of release and symbolic death that Fall ushers in, complete with the lower chakra colors abundantly displayed, red, orange, yellow, Winter takes the stage. In the silence and depth of the Winter chill where most life is dormant, in hibernation, there is a deep stirring. Here is where, using the fertile soil put in place by the energetic detritus of the Fall, we plant the seeds that will sprout with the Light of Spring. It is in Winter where we birth the child self once again, offering another cycle in which to remember the Truth of Our Being, and finally remember to establish the soul relationship between that child and the adult self.

Christmas is such a precious time because it is our own inner child self who is calling for recognition, witnessing, acknowledgment, tenderness, contact, communication, companionship, play, being appreciated and valued, showered with gifts that affirm their actual presence. As families gather, the unresolved wounds of the child are present for cleansing, fresh from their exposure in the Fall decay. With all the players in a similar place it is easy to see how the holidays can get intense. Without the awareness of what is really happening it is a free for all that often drives deeper wedges between family members at a time when the Universe and the cooperative Earth have set the table for resolution...a tragedy that plays out year after year...until someone wakes up.

My daughter, Gabriela, was born in August on the 9th, astrologically blessed as a triple Leo, the Lion exponentially powered. When she rose from her Mother's belly in a Cesarean birth, after 13 hours of pushing to come out the birth canal, she showed her fire and readiness to get on with things. Solid and strong she exerted the profound force within her as she set her personal mission in motion, with her Mother, Erin, and I standing at the ready to direct with as much love and guidance as we had available at that time, which for me, was already showing as a confused, oscillating inner mass, at best, in this significant life shift I was in.

Five months later was her first Christmas...a poignant time of personal reflection for me added to the natural process that I had outlined above. An actual child in arms triggers and amplifies the call of the Inner Child self to raise the whole vibration. Both are important and deserve attention and nurturance. What I recall in those moments of being with Gabriela is how much I was stirred. Her presence flooded me with a litany of Christmas's past images and feelings that washing through like a desert storm. What was best of all was that I was feeling again, after a significant time when I focused more on fulfilling my responsibilities rather than tending to my own self care.

I haven't loved Christmas for the longest of times...and this one here before me has opened my eyes...

Play this song to get back in touch with the child in you to reawaken the magic time of Christmas. Be gentle and nurturing with yourself here. And be sure to buy your own self the perfect gift...

A Child’s First Christmas

December night candlelight All things have changed
A new stocking hung Gently with care
The silence is stirred By soft babbles and coos
She calls to the angels somewhere
And her eyes sing remember and whisper my name
She smiles from a place In her soul
She reaches for something I think it is me
My heart fills with feelings Unknown
And the lights on the tree Seem much brighter This year
I believe there’s a Much whiter snow
I haven’t loved Christmas For the longest of time
But this one here Before me has Opened my eyes
It’s a child, my child Gabriela is filling my world
And the video’s running The diary is full
Each moment is captured Each moment so new
It’s a child’s first Christmas
Every moment says,“Daddy, I give you my love”
Every sound is a song For the world
Every breath says, “I’m growing I’m growing so strong”
Every thought is for you Gabi girl
So what can I give you For Christmas this year?
What present can show How I feel?
Just keep saying, “Yes” To these changes you bring
And know that this love is for real
And the lights on the tree Seem much brighter This year
I believe there’s a Much whiter snow
I haven’t loved Christmas For the longest of time
But this one here Before me has Opened my eyes
It’s a child, my child Gabriela is filling my world
And the video’s running The diary is full
Each moment is captured Each moment so new
‘Cause I want to remember These days of my life
When you love changed My world And the fear in me died
When you carried the promise Like a rose in your hand
that told me dear Daddy You’ve become a man
It’s a child’s first Christmas
