Gift of the Magi

Intention: 
For Self Growth
Do this exercise once during the holiday.
  • Sit up straight in a chair and close your eyes.
  • Breathe evenly and regularly-- long slow exhalations through the mouth and brief, normal inhalations through the nose. After several of these full respirations:
  • Imaginally descend a staircase to find your Christmas tree.
  • Under the tree, find a beautifully wrapped wooden box.  Carefully open the box to find gold, frankincense, and myrrh, each contained in individual silk sacks.
  • Take them out and find a card at the bottom addressed to you from your personal magus.  The card explains the three gifts: gold for self-transformation; frankincense for creative energy; myrrh for the end of vanity and pride.  The card is signed “Love.” Keep them as reminders of your intentions to fulfill in the coming year.  How do you feel?
  • Breathe out and open your eyes.
