Tale of Christmas at Maharani’s House..
Tis.. was a day before Christmas. Everyone in Maharani’s house was sleeping including her little Princess Brittle, who has been known to get into things that one can never imagine…..All of a sudden Maharani hears a knock at her door. Curious and annoyed why someone would come to her house so late. She draws the curtain and does not see anyone at her front door. Trying to be really quite, Maharani follows the knock. She first goes to the front door and none is there. She hears the knock again and she goes to her bedroom door and no one is there. Now the knock is getting louder and Maharani is getting annoyed because she does not want anyone to wake up the last door to be checked is the sliding glass door. To her surprise it is St. Nick. She was really happy to see him since he has not come to Florida since her children were 7 and 5. Maharani hurries up and opens the door and very excited to hug him.
Staring at Maharani with the look of annoyance St. Nick said to Maharani, “It would have been nice if you had a chimney so that I can park my sleigh on top of your house. Instead I had to park in your backyard, and knock on this glass door. You know I have to be very careful. I don’t want anyone to hear that I have come to deliver present for all those good boys and girls.” Maharani said, “Well Santa first of all this is Florida there are not many houses here with Chimneys.” Maharani gracefully opens sliding glass door wide enough to let St. Nick in and he makes his way to her couch. His weight is so much that one side of her couch flips up and Maharani ask St. Nick to sit in the middle of the couch so that when the couch breaks it wont make so much noise.
St. Nick with curiosity looks over to the couch and there is a brown fur ball on her couch as Princess Brittle rolls on her back and starts to snore. St. Nick says, “Ah! Is that the new reindeer you were going to buy me?” Maharani smirks and says, “Sorry St. Nick that is my Princess Brittle. You see I looked for a reindeer for you but could not find one but I did find Princess Brittle, she is a great guard dog she barks and hides under my bed. So if you want a noise maker you can adopt her but for now she is quite comfortable here. But if you really want her I will give her to you but I can not be for certain that she wont hide all of the time because your reindeers are scary but Rudolph… she is really scared of his nose.” St. Nick looked very disappointed and said, “Perhaps you can try again next year because one of my reindeers has been drinking too much eggnog at Christmas and he has been slowing down all of the other reindeers and I need a replacement.” Maharani looked down and said, “I will pray that we find a replacement for you for next year.” St Nick and Maharani sat in silence with the aroma of cinnamon tickling their noses.
St. Nick looked around and said, “Your home looks so festive with all these lights and your children are really grown up, but what are you really doing just sitting here with tissues on that table in the middle of the night?” Maharani looked at St. Nick with sadness and tears in her eyes, “You see St. Nick. There is so much that I want to give to people on Christmas Day, but it has been difficult the economy has not been at its best and this has caused so many people including my self to feel sad and concerned how they will make it through the holidays. I tried really hard to give.” St. Nick looked at Maharani with is one eye brow to his forehead, “Really? What have you tried?” With a sigh, Maharani explained, “This has been going on since last year.
First my good client Cheryl promised me cookies which I would have only given to my youngest son because he loves cookies. Then, this year my good client Onur promised me a sweat shirt would I would have given to my oldest son because he loves those colors. Also my good friend Robert promised me Lavender plants and my good client Carol promised me lavender seeds which I would have given it to my mom since she loves lavender. But most of all my good friend Donna promised me a rich man who would take care of me so that I can have enough money to buy gifts for all my clients, my children, my friends and my neighbors. But none of it happened. And I am so sad.” Maharani began to cry..
St. Nick reached over to Maharani and held her hand and said, “You see, Christmas was not created to give gifts to each other but it was a gift. A son was born it was about God giving us a gift of his son who would later sacrifice him self for the sins of the people. To show what compassion, love, and glory is all about. I was only hired on because I was standing at the unemployment line with my reindeers and I was famished for food. God felt sorry for me because I begged him that I would die if I did not have something to eat and I don’t have a heart to steal. So God said, “Ok son. You will have a very important job which is to make every child on this Earth happy. But there are a couple of things you need to do. Which is to make sure every wish is fulfilled by boys and girls all over the world. You must ride your sleigh in the cold weather, blizzard and rain and every house with a chimney you must go down to deliver the present no matter how difficult it gets and no matter how cold it is. That is the sacrifice you will make in turn I will give you a place to stay, food to eat, a woman to love, helpers to make wishes come true and in the summer, you can go into the ocean and swim with the seals.” So I made a deal. I have had the same job for so many years, that some people do not understand the real meaning of Christmas and it saddens me.” Maharani, looked at St. Nick with a tear in her eyes and said, “I am so sorry I asked for anything, I really do understand that Christmas is not about gifts so having said that, can I have a wish?” So St. Nick looked up waiting for a sign.
After some time he looked in his bag, and said, “I am sure God will grant wishes this Christmas but your wishes are too long sometimes and I have to go by Christmas morning and besides I can keep your son and Princess Brittle sleeping that long.” Excited, Maharani reaches for St. Nick and begins to hug St. Nick. Then jumps on the couch and says, “I promise I won’t take to long”. Maharani got her note pad out sits in a folding position and begins to read all the questions that her clients had for her….
First on Maharani’s list was Natasha who was very sad that she did not have “life partner”. So Maharani said to Santa, “Natasha wants to know when she will meet her life partner?” Santa scratched at his beard, took his hat off and sighed and said, “Well, it depends what she considers a partner. Partner can be a male, a female, a dog like your self, a tennis partner, or gym partner. It all depends upon her taste.” For a moment he was quite and Maharani stared at him with confusion as he began to finish his thought, “If Natasha wants someone she can share her life with she has everyone around her but if she is looking for someone to marry then it will take some time because Natasha still has yet to find a perfect person this is because she may be attracting exactly what she desires not what she needs. To find someone that will share her life. She must achieve three things: One is find a balance in her life and she must be fair to her self as well as others. Second, she must not allow gossip in her life and there is a trip she needs to go on which is going to be delayed and lastly she must heal pass old pain and hurt from other people so that she does not carry around baggage from old relationships.” Santa then looks into his hat then into his bag and says, “Natasha has 8 months to get her life straightened out because in the month of August or July she could have this opportunity, but only if she is dedicated to the tasks that God has set out for her.” St. Nick reached for foot stool and got comfortable.
Second on her list was Velda, who had a very odd question for St. Nick. Though Maharani was confused with the question, Maharani asked the question any ways. With hesitation Maharani said to Santa, “A very dear client in Florida asks if there is any thing significant happening in her life in 2011?” Santa replied, “Welllllll…. She could get in her car and drive but she does need to be clearer.” Santa scratched him self on the belly since the suite was kind of itchy in Florida. And Santa said…”hmm.. Before anything can happen some things must be stopped…. First she must control her emotions, take time to rest and be a little stronger in her convictions; however, she has some obsessive tendencies that must be placed under control. It could be drinking, eating, anything that she is doing that God would not approve because she is confused or distraught must be stopped because it shows God signs of weakness.” Santa began to rub his hands together and asked Maharani, “Got some eggnog?” Santa continued as he took a sip of the eggnog and said, “Furthermore, wishes can be granted but I am looking at 17 days to months but it will take her some time to relax and believe in Gods work.” Santa said to Maharani “did you put liquor in this eggnog because it takes awfully sweet like rum.” Maharani giggled and said, “Santa you know I don’t drink.” He nodded and smiled.
Third on Maharani’s list was Melinda, though she had a question about her relationship. Something told Maharani that there is something wrong with the question. Unsure what to say or how to say it, with uncertainty Maharani said to Santa, “Melinda asks if her and her boyfriend would get back together.” Santa jerked his glass of eggnog and almost spit out what he was drinking with his blue eyes wide open and said, “She does not understand that right now she can not be worried about men in her life because she has a higher calling which is called Destiny, and no matter what she wants Destiny is much more powerful than relationship. The harder she tries the more difficult it will be until February 5, 2011.” Maharani sighed because she knew that is not what Melinda wanted to hear but Maharani also knew that this is why her intuition was guiding her the way it was and Maharani said to Santa with disappointment, “What is her destiny?” Santa said, “Well, we are going to do it your way even though they don’t celebrate Christmas that much in India I will give to you exactly the way you would understand it….
“Melinda is currently going through some difficult lessons of Shani. Which also a sign of Karma and Dharma and will continue this phase until February 2, 2011. There will be a younger man that will play a major role in Melinda’s life in the future. He is a sales man or someone who promotes something, who will help her soar in her financial and career life or that Melinda herself, will have great success in her own business ventures through self promotions. Its time for Melinda to get creative in every business venture. However, if Melinda’s eyes are not open there will be a man that will be dishonest with her and may take an advantage of her. He may be in sales or even younger than her.” Maharani says, “Well that is not the version I would understand that’s not from the Vedic Scriptures.” Santa burped, and said, “Ops, yea that is the Western Version.” Santa then reaches in his bag and takes out a note and begins to read, “At this time Melinda will gain inner peace from contact with Earthy people by attending to practical things, perhaps tending to a house or garden. Physical labor and exercise will help relive stress and enable her to see things in proportion. There is much pleasure to be derived from appreciating simple things in life. Satisfaction in her life will be gained from small jobs through perseverance but it means. Melinda will have to work hard and attend to the details of her life. AT this moment Melinda needs to be patient and approach people and situation with gentleness and gratitude. If she does not do this there will be dispense of jealousies and frustrations and Melinda will have to learn the value of personal sacrifices. But as far as relationships are concerned her destiny will over power her desires.” Santa then too off his glasses and cleaned them with his handkerchief and put them back on.
The fourth on Maharani’s list was Pauline. With a smile on her face Maharnai she was excited to say to Santa, “This is a good one Santa all Pauline wants to know is what her Destiny is?” Santa began to clear his throat and said, “Hmm, you want the ghetto version or you want an honest answer?” Maharani, crinkled her face and with frustration and said, “Of course I want honest answer.” Santa abruptly got up. Place his hands behind his back looking down and began to pace as he said, “Pauline, what a lovely woman she kind of reminds me of my wife, she has slick black hair and a sensitive eyes, what more can I say?” Maharani gets agitated and says, “Santa please don’t be funny we don’t have much time.” Santa continues to pace back and forth and says, Ok, Ok, well the lovely Pauline has been going through some communication and thinking process and this will continue until February 13, 2011. She can have great success if she is using her mind to do the things she needs to do. Even if Pauline decides to be a writer, or a speaker delivering knowledge, she will get recognize for everything she can do. But ultimately her goals should be to teach other people. Or start a Radio show like you did Maharani. She has the power to deliver a lot of information. However…” Santa than begins to scratch his head, and says, “But your view Maharani would be that she is taking on too many commitments and Pauline’s oppression will wear her down. Perhaps even taking on or running a business that takes every moment of Pauline’s time and she may be doing too much overtime. Like me Maharani, I do a lot of over time at Christmas. But she may not find excitement or satisfaction that she once had and there is no time for personal energy or creativity. She may even detach her self from spiritual or moral reasons due to the understanding of purpose than work it self. See.. Maharani my purpose at Christmas is to eat cookies got any?” Maharani says, “Organic.” Santa, looks at her with disgust and says, “No thank you”
The fifth on Maharani’s list was Grace. Maharani looked at the name two times because she could not believe that Grace even had any questions for Santa. But to fulfill her promise to Grace, with a soft pitch. Maharani asked Santa,“ There is a very sweet client who is a excellent student and I pray she becomes a Dentist so that I can get free exams so Santa can you tell Grace what her destiny is in the next 60 days because she never had a Destiny reading with you before?” Santa asks, “Could I have a mirror first?” Maharani gets up and goes to the bedroom and grabs a mirror to give to Santa. Santa then looks at the mirror and says, “Hmm. My teeth really need some work. You think Grace can give me a free dental plan too? But I think I may have to finance it since God flips the bill.” Maharani smiles and says, “She might just give you that if you give her the destiny reading you promised. She might even let you pay .10 cents a month for the rest of her life it if it is good.” Santa looks in the mirror again and says, “Hmm.. that’s sounds like a plan but…beautiful Grace is going through lessons in her life which are very important. This phase began for her at the beginning of this month and will continue until February 23, 2011. One thing you don’t understand Maharani is that for the next three months she has great intuition and organization skills which will serve a purpose for her self and other people. She knows things before it will happen and she will rule her life in the next 60 days with her intuition but she may become very high strung and irritated. She will also be a great communicator often times she acts like a mother or plays a mothering role. But Vedic reading has great respect for her because for the next 60 days. She will develop qualities of independence, creativity and warmth. Grace will be completely open and straightforward and detest people who employ subtleties and ticks to get what they want. Those who befriend Grace in the next 60 days will find her very loyal and loving friend who provides both a strong shoulder to cry on and practical help in crisis. Grace can be very passionate, impulsive, quick tempered in her rages but it never last long Grace will be very incapable of holding a grudge. She sounds like a perfect woman for me, especially holding a grudge. Since I do tend to complain a lot when I am famished. Do you think you can feed me now since I have been trying to make your wishes come true for the past 3 hours and you have not fed me a thing?” Maharani got up and tried to make Santa a sandwich. Santa shouted, “Don’t you dare put that curry sauce in my sandwich.” Maharani put her hand up to her mouth and said, “shhhh”
The Sixth on Maharani’s list was Roberta. Maharani does not hear from Roberta that often but when she does, Maharani is glad to have met her. With sentimental voice she reads to Santa what Roberta had asked, “Santa Roberta wants to know when she will have a lasting relationship?” Santa sat down and tried to sit in a folded position but could not fold his legs because of the suit and tried to meditate. All Maharani could do is laugh, and said to Santa, “all jokes aside could you please answer this question for Roberta, she is really good.” Santa said, “I know, I was just joking because I do believe she has a lasting relationship already but she does not see it. That relationship is with God, however she often chooses human beings and giving them a benefit of the doubt rather than allowing the process to take place there for God is asking her to look at her past more deeply and she must stop looking at the past in glory or resentment rather she must look at the lessons of the past. She must look at opportunities of the present stay committed to financial situations, people places and things. Roberta also has a new financial opportunity that needs her attention but for now she needs to rest and relax. She may receive an invitation of some kind that will give her an opportunity to be with someone of her own liking but the minute she becomes obsessed or co-depended to the situation then God will surely snatch it away. Only because God really wants her not to make the same mistakes as she has done and she must also stop looking for people on the internet or things that are not tangible because it is a lie. God will give her at least 7 months or the month of July 2011, to get her self together if she does not than she will have to wait. Then again there is always me oh wait I am taken.” Maharani smiled and said, “So what are you saying, he said, Roberta has to be impendent completely of people, when the time is right and when she is fully involved in commitments of things that will give her the financial security and feeling of accomplishment is when this will happen but it will be by chance.” Santa than asked if she has Monopoly. Maharani nodded yes and goes to find it and Santa said , “stop Dominos will do just fine since you are keeping me from my work.”
The seventh on Maharani’s list was Travis. Maharani was very perplexed and sad about Travis’s wish which was “When will I meet my soul mate?” But she could not ask Santa, just yet because Santa had to go deliver presents in the middle of the night to all the good boys and girls and left Maharani and said, “I will be tomorrow afternoon after I have fulfilled my promise to make everyone’s wishes come true.” Maharani nodded in agreement and opened the door to her sliding glass door and let Santa out. As he rushed to his sleigh, trying to straighten out his suit. The reindeers hissed and Rudolph lit his nose. Santa then got into his sleigh without saying a word and waving bye to Maharani and the sleight whisked into the sky like a plane taking off.
Maharani rushed into her home and sat back down because she still had some work to do and Travis’s questions needed extra time for pondering. With tears in her eyes Maharani searched forjournals which she shared with everyone on the concept of soul mates in March of 2010 andNovember of 2010, and read it over to see if there was anything confusing about it that Travis would not understand. Perhaps it was too complicated or was it just that Travis may be going through some difficult times whereas something so simple is so complicated so she gathered her resources and looked at all advise she had given to Travis in the past and discovered that surely Travis is going through some difficult time and even the most simplest words would not be clear to him since the transit of his Destiny causes him to feel heartache when there is none. Maharani knew this was a answer that she could no longer answer because not only has it been answered and shared by Maharani so many times but it was no use to continue to try to explain something to a person who is going through a difficult time.
Maharani waited for Santa to come back. The time to Maharani seemed an eternity and all of a sudden she heard a loud noise which seemed like a car crash. Maharani rushed to her back yard only to discover that Santa had crashed into her fence. Maharani ran to Santa’s sleigh to make sure he was alright while uncovering the wood from the fence. The reindeers were covered in dirt and Rudolph had a Maharani’s Jasmine plant on his head. Worried, and concerned, Maharani said, “Santa! Are you alright?” Santa looked at Maharani with frustration, and said, “See my dear I told you to have a chimney but ..” Santa then shook off the dirt and came through the sliding glass door shedding dirt through Maharani’s kitchen and living room.
Once again Santa sat down at the corner of Maharani’s couch and the couch once again flew up. Maharani said, “Santa, I think you will be more comfortable if you sat in the middle of the couch.” Santa moved over and said, “Ok, where were we?” Maharani said, “We were making wishes come true for Christmas.” Santa than took off his hat and shook off the dirt.
In tears Maharani said, “Travis would like to know when he will meet his soul mate?” Santa, looked at Maharani with shock as his blue eyes almost popped out his face and said to Maharani, “Did you not explain this already to your people?” Looking down, Maharani replied, “I did but Travis does not understand. No matter how much I explained. But Santa he is going through such a difficult time until January that no matter how much I explain it, it won’t matter because of his sadness. I am sorry.” Santa reached over to Maharani’s hand and said, “Its not your fault but lets see what I can do.” Santa than moves his legs on the couch so that he is in a sleeping position and places his hands on his head and says, “Before anything Travis first has to understand the what it means about soul mates and since he does not and has mistaken it for relationship that is long lasting which understanding, loving and stable. I can only let him know what he has to do to attract a person that meets these qualities. First of all Travis has to stop looking as the past in the negative terms rather he must look at the past as lessons learned. God will make sure the past does not come back to him and give him all the strength he needs to let go of the past. Second, he must stay away from people who lie to him and confuse with false prophecies and things that just are not real. Third Travis must look at life much more optimistically which is only causing him illusions, negative thinking and unhappiness. But Travis fears change he does not want to make any changes and is afraid if he makes too many changes that things will not go well so he is not acceptable to change. He also depends that things will stay the same and some miracles can happen. Which it can but he is way too emotional with scattered to make this happen. But no one wants anyone that is too emotional and unhappy. No one wants someone that carries baggage and its yearning for things from the past and not open to change. Most of all no one wants to be anyone that is obsessed and using thing or doing things that even God would not approve. Having said that, God is asking Travis to stop complicating his life financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Everything that is happening is self created there is no vengeance. God is giving him until the first of the year to make these changes. He is giving Travis 5 months to get his financial life in order. He is also asking Travis to stay away from anything that alters his moods like drinking, drugging, internet or anything that is not solving anything in his life. He is also asking him to lower his expectations of people and not to make it seem to people he knows things which he does not and be open to information. But most of all change his plans of life so that he does not continue to have power struggles with people. The universe will give him four months to stop fighting change. So that he does not become hypocritical because no matter who tells him thing he does still not understand. God will make sure he is frustrated and things are delayed for him for 8 months until change comes or until Travis decides to make a change in his life. The significant person will come into his life when does not make irrational choices and diminishes conflicts. But if he does not change his ways his equal or close to it may not come for at least 20 months.” Maharani sits in silence staring at the ceiling and within minutes she begins to hear a snore coming from Santa.
As the night turns into day….
Maharani rushed back into her house knowing that Santa can not stay until 3pm. Since it would not be good to have her boys and her doggy sleep for that long, because when Santa come he tries to put all the good boys and girls and doggies and kitties and little creatures of God to sleep while he delivers their wishes. The sun began to come up and in a panic Maharani Splashes water into Santa’s face and says, “Santa please wake up the sun is raising and you must go. The reindeers are tired and Mrs. is waiting for you.” Santa rolls over on Maharani’s couch and almost falls over and says, “Five more minutes, I am dreaming of cookies, fudge and hot coco.” Maharani shakes Santa and says, “Please wake up Santa everyone is going to awake soon and see your sleigh, you don’t want that do you?” Santa jumps from the couch in a solute position and he shakes his face and his beard flies from one side of his face to another and says, “ No, No, and begins to pace and says, is there anything else I can do for you Maharani?” Maharani hugs Santa and kisses his red cheeks and says, “No Santa you have done enough. May God bless you and I love you.” Maharani then escorts Santa out of the house to his sleigh and hugs every reindeer and tells them to take care of Santa because we need him. Rudolph smiled and lit his red nose, as Santa jerked the leather strap of his reindeers and sleigh once again took off like a plane.
Maharani begins to walk towards her house while wiping away her tears sits back down on the couch. She brings her hands together and prays, “God, I try really had to give things to my friends and family and my clients without asking for anything in return. Only thing is that they ask. But it seems to me that there were more people in sadness, yet they never asked for your guidance. I wish when a gift comes to them, they would appreciate that there are no strings attached only glimpse of what you give to me. God, thank you for brining Santa to us this Christmas and I hope that you keep him very safe. God I pray that people would be less depended on personal relationships and be more appreciative of what you have provided. I also pray that each and every person spends a little extra time next year spending time with their children and family and not worry so much that they don’t have a love or relationships in their lives and to know that you will provide them when they are capable of having it not when they are in desperation. God thank you for loving us with your pure heart and giving to us a gift of love and free will and know that I can only hope that things get better for each and every one of us so that we take life in moderation not in obsession.” Maharani than lifted her head up. Lifted her doggy, and walked towards her son’s room to kiss him good night and whisper I love you in his ears as she closed the door behind her and headed to her room with Princess Brittle in her hand and closed the door.
