The Gift: A Guided Visualization of Epiphany for a New Year

The Gift: A Guided Visualization of Epiphany for a New Year

Ask the Spirit of the Beloved to open your being, to quiet you…

Picture the scene of Three Wise Ones coming to offer homage and gifts to the Christ, the One sent by the Beloved…

See yourself as one of the Wise Ones…

You come to offer a gift…

There is a wonderfully wrapped gift in your hands…

Inside the gift are aspects and qualities of your life that you most enjoy and appreciate. Reflect upon these aspects and qualities…

Which are especially meaningful to you?

Which have been most apparent in the past year?

Which have seemed hidden or absent in the past year?

Gather these qualities into your gift…

Visualize yourself coming and presenting your gift-wrapped package…

As you offer this gift of yourself, see the love, joy, delight with which your gift is received…

Now, visualize a gift being offered to you. It too is beautifully wrapped…

There is a note card on it with a special message from the Beloved to you…

Imagine what is written on the note card…

Receive the gift, open it, and ponder its meaning for your life…

Offer thanks to the Beloved for this gift of the new year…
