Part-Time Santa, Full-Time Visionary

by Scott Noelle

On gift-giving occasions such as Christmas, Hanukkah, and birthdays, parents traditionally take on the role of a “santa” — a saintly giver who fulfills children’s material wishes.

But if your child’s wishes exceed what you believe you can or should fulfill, you might forget that you are not your child’s only means of satisfaction. In an abundant Universe, there’s an infinite number of ways any desire can be satisfied.

This year, take the perspective that being a santa is just a “part-time hobby,” and that your “full-time job” is to HOLD THE VISION of your child eternally connected to Infinite Well-Being.

In that vision, desire is a blessing, not a demand, so you can celebrate your child’s desires even when neither of you knows how the desires will be fulfilled.

When you expect your child’s wishes to come true — somehow, someday — and your child can feel your faith... there is no greater gift!
