According to the book "Mystery of the Christos" by Corinne Heline the Christ Spirit has four aspects: cosmic, planetary, historical and mystical. This Christ Spirit makes four major contacts with the earth during the solstices and equinoxes.

Heline states that the events in the life of Jesus the Christ represent the initiatory steps that each one of us must take to become a Christed soul. The Christ is not a person but a “office” or “position” we ALL attain to.

At Christmas is the “sacrifice” of the Cosmic Christ. This “being” comes down to earth and fills every atom of space and all living things with love and light. Is this why there is a renewed feeling of love, goodwill, and joy at this time of year?

At this same time of year our physical sun, which brings life to us and to our planet, comes closest to the earth than any other time of year. The sun is at its lowest point in the sky at Winter solstice December 21st. The sun is above the horizon the least amount of time during that day. The Winter solstice is known as the shortest day of the year.

For three days between the Winter solstice and Christmas morn the sun “rests” at the horizon. The sun moves the least amount at the horizon at this time. This is a nautical fact. It is as if the sun or “Son” rests in the “tomb” of physicality for these three days waiting for the Resurrection of the Christ Spirit on Christmas morning. The earth is bathed with the love and light of the Archangelic Cosmic Christ Spirit renewing the earth and its people in an ever rising, spiraling, evolution to bring heaven down to earth. It is as if the Christ child awakens and is reborn after bringing the light back to the world. The sun and the “Son” rises.

The celebration of Christmas does not end on December 25th. The next 12 days December 26-January 6 (Epiphany) are known as the 12 Holy days or the Holy of Holies.This is the time when one can dedicate themselves to the divine path of God Goddess.

My book "Christmas Meditations on the Twelve Holy Days December 26-January 6" is my 26 year dedication to these days. Each day is asslgned to a Disciple. sign of the Zodiac, spiritual attainment, spiritual part of the physical body, and a thought meditation from the Bible.

Passage from "Christmas Meditations on the 12 Holy Days December 26-January 6"

"Every year on January 3 (or 4), the earth in its elliptical orbit around the sun comes closer to it than any other time of the year. Instead of 93 million miles away, we come within 90 million miles. This is very symbolic, as the earth comes closer to the sun to receive more light.

"One year, on the ninth holy day, January 3, I was enjoying my daughter and grandsons at my home. All day long I kept telling them the thought meditation of the day: “Ye are the light of the world.” (Matthew 5:14) I have one window in my bedroom where the sun shines in on a little table. I had a quartz crystal ball, cut flat on the bottom, sitting on a cloth. I was lying down relaxing and all of a sudden I looked over and saw smoke! The sun’s rays from 90 million miles away came in my window and through the crystal to start a fire! It was a confirmation of what I had been saying all day, “Ye are the light of the world.” Each one of us has a special light to shine and share with our planet. Be mindful of what you say!""

From "Christmas Meditations on the Twelve Holy Days" for the ninth Holy day January 3

"The physical demonstration of fire represents the power of the Spiritual Fire of God. God’s first ray of light refracted into the seven rays of the spectrum, and all colors of the earth and heavens were fashioned. That one ray of light split into all the colors of the rainbow and created Spirit’s first light.

"This spiritual fire burns within us. As the mind thinks and the heart loves, this fiery passion of thought and feeling helps to manifest our desires. See the sun in the heavens and also see it represented as our heart, the life giving element that makes all things grow.

"The light of the world is inside of us. It peeks through the darkness. It blazes when we love. It teaches us divinity right now. It whispers “I love you” a million trillion times in the silence. Source gives us light to lead us out of the darkness of unknowing.

“For every ‘Oh Lord’ of thine are a thousand ‘Here am I’s.’” (Sufi Prayer)

"We can become a perfect channel of Spirit’s unending supply. We can become a great conduit for the Creator’s energy within, making right all we touch and think about.

"The light of the body, the face, radiates God’s healing power. You can see it in the eyes. When we are old, if we are still beautiful with wrinkles and all, God’s light is shining through us. Just think how many times we bless instead of curse, how many times we send a loving thought instead of a hurtful one, how many times we choose good over evil. All these choices are counted and remembered. Every thought, word, and deed is written in the “Book of God’s Remembrance.” Not one thought is extinguished, but it goes on to be transformed into LIGHT."

Enjoy this coming Christmas season along with Hanukkah, Kwanza, and other religious observances of this sacred time remembering that we are
