It’s one of those times of the year that reminds you to connect with your inner child, to dream and believe, to see through eyes and hearts of wonder, share your love with everyone in peace and harmony, recognize the beauty in and around you, and to brightly shine your light from the truth of your heart.
For me, this is every day because I still “hear the bell.”
If you’re wondering what that means, it comes from The Polar Express, which I was watching again last night. In the movie, adults, and even children, who don’t believe can’t hear the magick Christmas bells. It only rings for all who DO believe. And for these people, the magick is never lost.
Yesterday I spent the day working, which included creating a special design for a client that embodies so much of the new energy collectively being birthed, and then spent my evening making 2 desserts for today’s Christmas celebration, and making a Christmas Eve feast and dessert for last evening, while watching The Polar Express. Even Joy, whose birthday it was yesterday, was part of the magick of the evening, coming to sit by the fireplace we had on and watching with us. She even got to enjoy her own little dessert, which was a strawberry I gave her for a birthday surprise.
And while I didn’t have the day off, even cooking and baking all night, it was still filled with magick because I see everything that way. I find all the little special things in everything, that might be hidden by others. And whenever I catch myself feeling stressed, I am able to ease that anxiety by stepping back and reminding myself of the choices I made and the magick within everything I’m experiencing, regardless of how it looks or feels, and the meaning that can assist me in making changes of growth.
People may look at me weird, and they might even get frustrated that I have no explanation to satisfy their desire for proof when I share emphatically what I believe without waiver of trust, in the things that I do.
And that is perfect with me, because I don’t owe any explanations for why I am happy and having fun. And I’m also happy to jump on the train without knowing where it’s going because the power of my belief will always see me safely to exactly where I need to be, likely with a lot of fun surprises along the way.
And guess what? The destinations are where we begin again…
Who wants to know every little detail of what is going to happen anyway? If you knew that, there’d be no fun in living. Life is an experience and if you can trust in your heart and believe in things beyond your mind’s explanation, then you will experience the kind of stuff your dreams are made of and the reasons for your decision to incarnate here.
You always hear people say “I’ll believe it when I see it,” but I’ve always believed as Wayne Dyer shares, “You’ll see it when you believe it.”
There is so much power in this shift of perspective, as there always is with anything when you make a slight adjustment in your way of perceiving it.
I’ll leave you today with my two favorite quotes from the Polar Express:
“At one time, most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed, it fell silent for all of them. Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound. Though I’ve grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe.”
“One thing about trains: It doesn’t matter where they’re goin’. What matters is deciding to get on.”
Do you still hear the bell? I do.
Wishing everyone a magickal day, however you celebrate, and I hope that your heart opens a little bit more to the possibilities and your imagination expands a little bit more to bring those possibilities into being.
Here is one of my favorite songs that’s from The Polar Express. The first video has clips from the movie. The second has the lyrics, as I feel when you see, and sing the words yourself, it has more impact. It doesn’t matter if you celebrate Christmas or not, and it’s not about “just” any certain day of the year either. The meaning of the words is valuable all year long.
