With holiday music on the radio stations, decorations in the stores, and the fact that a big bowl of candy canes has once again magically appeared on my coffee table, the holiday season is in full swing, and we are once again immersed in the season of well wishes. Similar to years past, this season of joy to the world and peace to all opens up doors for people to be more cordial, kind and express good tidings to one another. Usually, these well wishes are not dependent on finding out if someone follows a similar belief system or whether one chooses to celebrate anything like Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwansa, or anything else. In most cases, the well wishes are given out freely and generously with no strings attached. I began to think about what it actually means to ‘wish someone well’.
The wishing someone well could be translated to mean that you hope all his or her holiday plans run smoothly. So many people have to make travel arrangements for themselves and visitors at one of the busiest times of the year. We could wish someone well as they negotiate busy holiday plans. With the increased traffic during this time of year, one could literally wish someone to be well in order to be safe on the roads, as there are lots of icy conditions. It might mean that the well wishes could be a literal prayer for someone to remain well and in good health with the onset of colder temperatures. It could mean all the above, or simply expressed as a general wish for someone’s wellness.
I surmise that I, like most people, do not set out to dissect what it is that we are actually wishing them well for. But I do know that I give these well wishes out freely to people who I love, cherish and hold dear in my life. It was then that I began to wonder, if the fundamental core of wishing someone well had to be dependent at all on whether one agreed with or even liked another person or their actions that they chose.
Although many of the choices that a person makes are often made through unresolved anger, sadness, bitterness, regret, jealously, and resentment, it does not negate the fact that underneath their choices, they still remain Divine.
The Posse of Angels is reminding us that the holiday season is truly no different than any day throughout the year, as we have the free will and free choice to either create a time of great joy, freely giving our well wishes or we can choose to put restrictions and conditions on who we choose to bestow the energy of well wishing.
Why would one choose to not wish someone well?? I have heard from many clients throughout my years as an Intuitive Counselor that say they just cannot forgive and wish certain people well in their life. They not only can’t wish them well, but many times they wish horrible things to happen to them. The Posse of Angels is asking us to consider what energetically occurs within us when we make this choice.
Not wishing someone well actually goes against the core of who we are; our Divine eternal natures. And at our Divine core we know in our very deepest fiber that we are that other person-for we are all one. Remember that in most cases, it is the person’s chosen feelings inside and their beliefs that often stops them from wishing someone well. It also helps to remember that what a person says or does or does not do, has all to do with their perceptions and beliefs and very little to do with us.
In this situation, turn the tables and ask yourself, if you would like another person to not wish you well because of your beliefs. In the majority of cases, the answer is of course 'NO! I am allowed to have my beliefs." Well, so are they.
In my experience, not wishing someone well is almost always riding on some previous situation in which we did not like or agree with what another person has done, what they said or how they treated us.
Another point to consider is how it affects our health when we fail to wish someone well. The Posse of Angels is saying that holding back our well wishes actually creates dissonance and chaos in our hearts. This is because it is our hearts natural desire to be loving and inclusive, and happy for someone’s joy. When we wish someone well, it sets off an electromagnetic frequency that lifts all other energies to harmonize and attune to the frequency of love. The question is not, what did the person do to stop you from wishing them well, but how much do you want peace and harmony for yourself and all other people in the world?
This is true mastery over circumstance and I guess that is what is meant by the saying,
“Love they enemies” and we could easily add ‘and wish them well.”
Although each day of the year is just as blessed and wonderful as the holiday season, this time of year really concentrates our thoughts and feelings on goodwill to all and is a time to let, ‘bygones be bygones.’ This time of year has us looking into our hearts to forgive and to reach out, when at other times of the year, we may not have been so benevolent and generous. Some good questions to ask yourself around a situation of whether to wish someone well might be,
"How can I bring more love into this situation and create something so much better? or “How can I honor myself and come from my Divine eternal nature, regardless of any situation?”
After all, The Posse of Angels is saying that the thing that we can depend on is that number one, things always change and number two that our Divine eternal natures never changes.
The more we wish others well…. no matter what, the more we are embracing the shift in consciousness on our Planet. Regardless of any situation, we can choose to come from a place of pure intentions of love, forgiveness, connectedness, abundance and peace. Those who have truly achieved Divine wisdom, have no fear allowing the choices of others to dictate whether they are loving, kind, compassionate and forgiving. In this way, they practice self-governance, always in alignment with their spiritual Truth and not acting as a result of words or actions from anyone or anything externally. There is no fear of lawlessness or violence in those who are self-governed and in alignment with spiritual truth.
In many ways, by wishing someone well, especially if we have felt wronged or slighted by them, brings to our hearts a great blessing indeed. By embracing this higher wisdom, we are unconditionally holding love for ourselves, the other person and for the entire world.
My holiday wish is the same that I wish on all other days of the year. May we take our focus off our often limited visual sight and finally ascend to where we can begin to see each other through our connected hearts and solely through the eyes of love. Only in this way, will peace and unconditional love finally reign on our beloved Planet Earth and we will live in acceptance, harmony, and unity. God Bless you, your family and friends and I wish you well…. No Matter What.
Love and Angel Blessings,
