A Stunning Revelation
Part Two of this holiday message, I will share with you
"astronomical" and "heavenly" interpretation I have ever found of this
most famous of
What does this have to do with Universal laws of manifestation?
When I first
read this decades ago in the writings of
of the most brilliant teachers of manifestation laws, I found it
stunning. Neville goes on to further explain the relationship of the
facts to our consciousness and manifesting ability, but I will share
heavenly facts here and touch lightly on the more profound ideas. I
hope you find this enlightening and interesting as I did, or at
From Your Faith Is Your
the writings of Neville Goddard:
The outstanding dramatic dates
of the New Testament, namely, the birth, death and resurrection of
Jesus, were timed and dated to coincide with certain astronomical
phenomena. The mystics who recorded this story noticed that at certain
seasons of the year beneficial changes on earth coincided with
astronomical changes above. In writing this psychological drama they
have personified the story of the soul as the biography of man. Using
these cosmic changes, they have marked the birth and resurrection of
Jesus to convey that the same beneficial changes take place
psychologically in the consciousness of man as he follows the law.
Even to those who fail to understand it the story of Christmas is one
of the most beautiful stories ever told. When unfolded in the light of
its mystic symbology, it is revealed as the truth of every
manifestation in the world.
This virgin birth is recorded as having taken place on December 25th
or, as certain secret societies celebrate it, on Christmas Eve, at
midnight of December 24th. Mystics established this date to mark the
birth of Jesus because it was in keeping with the great earthly
benefits this astronomical change signifies.
The astronomical observations which prompted the authors of this drama
to use these dates were all made in the northern hemisphere; so from an
astronomical point of view the reverse would be true if seen from the
southern latitudes. However, this story was recorded in the north and
therefore was based on northern observation.
Man very early discovered that the sun played a most important part in
his life, that without the sun physical life as he knew it could not
be. So these important dates in the story of the life of Jesus are
based upon the position of the sun as seen from the earth in the
After the sun reaches its highest point in the heavens in June, it
graduallly falls southward, taking with it the life of the plant world
so that by December almost all of nature has been stilled. Should the
sun continue to fall southward, all nature would be stilled unto death.
However, on December 25th, the sun begins its great move northward,
bringing with it the promise of salvation and life anew for the world.
Each day, as the sun rises higher in the heavens, man gains confidence
in being saved from death by cold and starvation, for he knows that as
it moves northward and crosses the equator all nature will rise again,
will be resurrected from its long winter sleep.
Our day is measured from midnight to midnight, and, since the visible
day begins in the east and ends in the west, the ancients said the day
was born of that constellation which occupied the eastern horizon at
midnight. On Christmas Eve, or midnight of December 24th, the
constellation Virgo is rising on the eastern horizon. So it is recorded
that this son and savior of the world was born of a virgin. It is also
recorded that this virgin mother was traveling through the night, that
she stopped at an inn and was given the only available room among the
animals and there in a manger, where the animals fed, the shepherds
found the Holy Child.
The animals with whom the Holy Virgin was lodged are the holy animals
of the zodiac. There in that constantly moving circle of astronomical
animals stands the Holy Mother, Virgo, and there you will see her every
midnight of December 24th, standing on the eastern horizon as the sun
and savior of the world starts his journey northward.
Psychologically, this birth takes place in man on that day when man
discovers his consciousness to be the sun and savior of the world. When
man knows the significance of this mystical statement, "I am the light
of the world," he will realize that his I AM, or consciousness, is the
sun of his life, which sun radiates images upon the screen of space.
These images are in the likeness of that which he, as man, is conscious
of being. Thus qualities and attributes which appear to move upon the
screen of his world are really projections of this light from within
....He will discover that his I AM is the virgin conceiving without the
aid of man, that all conceptions of himself, when felt, and fixed in
consciousness, will be embodied easily as living realities in his

That is a fascinating story about Christmas. But, I don't think it is accurate. While no Biblical scholar will doubt the birth of Jesus, many see the Christmas celebration on December 25th as a replacement date by the Roman emperor Constantine for a drunken holiday following the emperor's conversion to Christianity. If that is true, then all these astrological implications are nonsense. Why? Because no one knows for sure when Jesus was born. We do know Jesus was born in a cave as opposed to a manger. Why? Because a church was build on top of that cave. That church marks the site of Jesus's birth . Even today, it remains a very popular tourist attraction in Bethlehem.
The Bible says the shepherds were "watching their flocks." Well, if it was December 25th, why are the shepherds outside in the cold? That does not make any sense. They and their sheep should be indoors where it is warm.
Just a little food for thought.

There are many mysteries, aren't there?
As for the accuracy of the astronomical facts presented by Neville, that part could easily be confirmed by current science and astronomers.
I think Neville is inferring that the date was chosen by mystics based on the astronomical facts.
Is it a coincidence that the "story" in the skies correlates to the actual historical account? Well, who knows? But if you read the additional astronomical explanations by Neville for Good Friday, Easter, the Crucifixion and Resurrection, the odds of it being a "coincidence" decrease dramatically.
The most important part of Neville's genius was his correlation of these events to the laws of manifestation.
I personally stood on the spot in the Church of the Navitity in Bethlehem where Jesus was said to be born. In fact, tourists are not allowed to take photographs on that spot but the guard let us do so. We travelled from one end of Isreal to the other (Jordan) and I found the Jewish and Christian history fascinating - from Bethlehem all the way to the top of Masada.
