Appropriate behaviour

Christmas is just one time when high spirits can get out of hand.  By that I mean that people may drink a little too much, or become swept along by group energetic excitement and then, due to a sense of reduced responsibility, behave in a manner that defies logic and reason.  Intellect seems to be set aside and foolishness then takes centre stage.  Sometimes, within the heat of the moment, behaviours can become inappropriately demonstrated.

Something similar to this can happen within the séance circle when energy becomes stronger and boundaries become tested.  When door keys go missing from their usual resting place, or when items are tampered with that causes inconvenience to the owner, it is time to re-enforce the séance intent and the rules of acceptable behaviour.

Small demonstrations of objects becoming inexplicably moved, are fine when they are effected with intelligence, humour and love.  But lost keys and similar frustrations caused by the less than intelligent use of energy is another matter. 
Such issues, I feel, must be taken seriously.  As I see it, any spirit person behaving inappropriately has to be excluded from inclusion within the circle.  Just as we would exclude a sitter who behaved foolishly.  The rules must be upheld on both sides of the veil.

New circles can find themselves 'running round in circles' if appropriate controls aren't put in place.  Opening prayers defining the circle's developmental intent and the prayer defining closure whilst offering thanks for all that is becoming achieved help to keep things on track. 

Love for Christmas

Looking around me, and I don't need to look very far to see it, Christmas is having an affect.
Behind the obvious tinsel and glitter, special offers and bargains, treats and excesses, the matter of homelessness continues to flourish.  Not only is homelessness continuing to be a heart breaking reality, the number of homelessness actually increases at this time of year, for families fall out more readily when forced together over the holiday period.  Not all feel the love and the light, and it's not easy to hide such emotions when many find themselves bound into the sharing of unfamiliar social excesses.

There are many that find themselves in a 'no win' situation.  For it is the time of years when others encourage that historical 'fall out' with old Uncle Fester to become healed.  Those parted within marriage feel encouraged to share time together as parents of their shared children...or alternatively their children are encouraged to share time apart with each parent, which necessarily leaves the other alone and causes reactionary behaviours within the children themselves.  Often too, the elderly either spend Christmas alone, which causes them to feel their loneliness more deeply that at any other time of year...or they become invited into the family gatherings, to experience the noise, bustle, banter, chaos and excesses of eating that the younger folk appear to enjoy.

Those who seem to have 'got the hang of it' and actually enjoy the Christmas period, it seems to me are few and far between, and even they must feel the pinch within their credit cards.

So, it is wise to realise that virtually everyone, including yourself, are enmeshed within this seasonal period of offered life challenge and that all will be experiencing an excess of complex and often unbalanced emotions. 

At this time of year, as pressures begin to heighten all around, it is wise to remember there is no greater gift to give another than love, pure and simple unconditional love. 

Supermoon

Last night I lay in bed with the curtains opened so that I could see the 'Supermoon'
In actual fact the darkness remained with stars and moon remaining unseen.

I knew they were there, stars and Supermoon, but I couldn't see them.  The reason I couldn't seen them, although I could see the local street lights which illuminated our garden and local streets, houses, trees and passing cars...all seen from my bedroom window...was because of cloud.

In truth I couldn't actually see the cloud.  I saw only darkness within the area of visible sky. 
Cloud is formed by water vapour, droplets of water and ice crystals.  Water is in fact within the air all around us, and our physical bodies contain a high percentage of water also...which becomes exchanged within the atmosphere.  Therefore...water demonstrates the 'we are one' theory pretty well.

Last night water, in the form of cloud, also demonstrated another truth.  It demonstrated that what exists physically may readily become unseen.  Realities of existence may not be visible, but remain as real in their existence and their beauty as an unseen Supermoon.
