Presents or Presence for Christmas?
“The ego and the Holy Spirit have very different perspectives on the concept of gifts and giving. This ‘season’ is an excellent opportunity to clarify the meaning of gifts that is held in mind. Gifts are not made through bodies, if they be truly given and received.“

MWGE Movie Review Excerpt
This movie’s main message is the value of extending and giving from the heart in order to escape from the painful loop of linear time. When time just repeats over and over, the mind becomes so dulled to this linear script that it starts to think of it as reality. Time loop movies like this one can help expose repetitive patterns and recurring blocks in the mind, and to provide an impetus for change.
Sometimes it takes the playing out of something over and over again to get the lesson and to be able to see the attraction to pain more clearly. As soon as Kate realizes the love that is right in front of her and how blessed she truly is, she steps into her function of extending and giving, with no expectation of anything in return from anyone.
More “Presents or Presence” Movies
Emotions/Themes: Transcending Roles, People Pleasing, Inspiration, Opening up to love, Communication, Jealousy, Family, Vibrational connection
MWGE Excerpt: This is a powerful movie that has every scene maximized for healing. All thoughts are expressed and hidden secrets exposed, which leads to healing for all concerned. People-pleasing and fear of intimacy go hand in hand. When we choose one, we get the other. Every relationship can be used by the Spirit as they all give us the possibility to remember who we are.
MWGE Excerpt: The world is a funny place. When we think we gain, we forget what we have always had. When we think we’ve lost and that the world would be better off without us, we forget that we gave it all the meaning it had for us. Then suddenly we have a change of heart, and a miracle shows us all the love we have.

Emotions/Themes: The Script is Written, Grievances, Heal Past Associations, Innocence, Happiness
MWGE Excerpt: Daniel believes he is stuck in time, living out a curse that he doesn’t understand. He finally realizes, “I did this, you didn’t do it to me.” Freedom comes when grievances of the past are laid aside. The script is written, and Heaven takes the form of a free choice. Love, Innocence, and Happiness are inevitable.
All I Want for Christmas
As trust in the Holy Spirit’s guidance grows, it becomes apparent that the only gifts worthy of sharing are the beatitudes Christ has spoken of which extend forever. Our very Being is the Gift; the peace, love, and joy Christ radiates will go on forever and ever and ever. The trinkets of the world cannot be “for giving,” yet I rejoice that the temporal cosmos has been “forgiven.”
Everyone is blessed in the holy instant in which Christ is born in awareness. Experience how wonderful it feels to be everything and extend everything without limits of any kind. Spirit expects no thing and offers everything by simply Being. This is giving as God gives.
Merry Christmas beloved of God, this present moment is ours to give.
