A Channeled Message from St. Nicholas; The Wisdom of Christmas
Have you ever wondered about the deeper meaning of Christmas? Unlock the wisdom of Christmas with a channeled message from St. Nicholas himself.
Who is St. Nicholas?
If you celebrate Christmas, chances are you may have found some presents under the Christmas tree, and perhaps you may even believe that those mysterious presents came from a jolly old man in a furry, red suit.
Of course throughout the world St. Nicholas has a lot of names, including Santa Claus, Sinter Klaas, Kris Kringle, Noel Baba, – and of course St. Nicholas. But whether you choose to believe or not, St. Nicholas was an actual person. His real name – Nicholas of Myra.
Nicholas of Myra, was born in the city of Patara in the region of Lycia (on the south coast of the Asia Minor peninsula), and was the only son of wealthy, and spiritually devoted parents Theophanes and Nonna. History states that as a young child Nicholas’ parents encouraged him to study the Scriptures and to pray. And later, being deeply devoted to his spiritual beliefs Nicholas vowed to live what he had learned.
Eventually Nicholas became a monk and devoted himself to God, later becoming the Archbishop of Myra in Lycia. It is unknown when St. Nicholas was canonized, however history records that he was well known for the many good deeds he did (many of which was done in secret), as well as the love and generosity he shared whenever he found a need.
As the Christmas celebration is fast approaching, I felt led to channel the wisdom of St. Nicholas in order to not only help you to discover what really lies underneath the story of Santa Claus, but to also let St. Nicholas himself share with you the wisdom of this holiday season.
A Channeled Message from St. Nicholas
When I sat down to channel St. Nicholas, my main question was: What is the message you wish to share with the world this Christmas?
Here is what he said to me:
“The holiday season is so much more than simply, buying gifts for your friends and family, setting up a Christmas tree, hanging up Christmas stockings and stuffing them with toys, and placing wrapped gifts under a tree. It goes much deeper than that.
If there was one message, one legacy that I would like to pass on to the current generation it would be generously bestowing peace, love, and compassion wherever you find yourself.
This type of generosity should not be practiced one month out of the entire year, but should be practiced every single day in everything you say, and in everything that you do. Keep your eyes open, look around you, and if you see a need whether it be for food or clothing, a kind word, or an act of compassion, fill that need by freely doing what you can to help.
This type of generosity and action is selfless. For no true act of love and compassion will withstand the test of time when a heart seeks something back in return.
Give. Give of your talents. Give of your time. Give of your finances. For these are the gifts freely bestowed upon you from God. And when you give please know that it is like pouring fragrant perfume from an abundant and unending source. The fragrance permeates the heart and soul of everyone who is anointed by it. Your reservoir of generosity will never run dry, for the more you give, the more you shall receive in return.
There is too much selfishness in the world today. Selfishness dries and withers the heart, and stifles love. A selfish heart is satisfied for only one moment in time, and then seeks something else to satisfy its lust.
This is not so with true love. Real love is kind, and generous. It builds others up in word and deed, and it never tires of giving the best it has to offer.
Selfishness is rewarded in the instant moment, while true love is compensated one thousand fold by creating a karmic spark that affects eternity.”
“Be like a river in generosity and giving help. Be like a sun in tenderness and pity. Be like night when covering other’s faults. Be like the dead when furious and angry. Be like earth in modesty and humbleness. Be like a sea in tolerance. Be as you are, look with love.” ~ Rumi
