Meditation New Year 2020

man standing on summit looking at the sun

Imagine that centuries ago, a shepherd in the mountains was idly tracing a small furrow in the ground with his staff. It was just a small furrow, but then came the rain, snow, frost, wind and sun, and little by little, this furrow grew deeper and wider until it turned into the bed of a torrent. What can we learn from this image? That the same phenomenon occurs with human beings. Every thought, every feeling is like a furrow drawn in our own inner earth, and all the psychic and spiritual forces circulating in space serve to make this furrow …

Daily Meditation Christmas Eve

“Daily life is difficult, the source of much tension; in families, at work and in society, people have to hold so much of their energy in check just to be able to bear all the demands on them and to cope! And every now and then, these energies need to be released. Initiates understood this well. That is why, as far back as you can go, they instituted popular festivals at certain times of the year corresponding to specific configurations in astronomy. Even Christian festivals, for the most part, are simply relics of ancient pagan festivals in a different form …

Etheric double imprints help form our habits

pastel picture of woman's face and brain

In our physical body, each of our organs’ cells has a memory-bearing etheric double. All of our cells, especially those making up the grey matter and white matter of our brain and solar plexus, record our actions, desires, feelings and thoughts. These recordings are kinds of negatives or imprints, and once etched, they tend to repeat themselves- this is how habits come to be. So if you want to replace old habits with new and better ones, you must change these imprints by striving to act according to the new orientation you wish to acquire. This requires constant vigilance, but …

‘Praise be to God’- enter into the light of divine glory

Golden Autumn leaves in sunlight

Praise be to God… To understand what these words mean, it would be better for people to be less obsessed by human glories. So many naive and ignorant people think that God is like one of the many tyrannical and vain monarchs who expect people to worship their wealth, their qualities and their achievements and who are only satisfied if they appear greater than all those around them. God has no need for us to sing his praises, for nothing we might say of him could add anything to him. The entire universe and all the angelic hierarchies already sing …

How to regenerate your cells

Brain x-ray with neurons

Disciples of Initiatic Science, through their thoughts, feelings and ideals, seek to bring about transformation to even the very heart of their own cells. They know that the billions of cells making up their physical body are home to small souls and that each one of them was given a specific activity. For a cell is not a simple particle of matter occupying any old place in the body. Each cell behaves like a worker who knows the work they must carry out in the part of the body where they are situated, and the smooth functioning of the whole …

Love is a state of consciousness

Butterfly in blue sky

The higher form of love is a state of consciousness in which all beings must learn to live one day. This state of consciousness cannot be described, nor can it be explained to someone who is not ready to live it; all that can be done is to try to lead them there gradually. This state of consciousness allows a person to feel inwardly connected with the universe; they are then like an instrument vibrating in unison with all that exists, they feel a profound sense of peace and, above all, tremendous goodwill towards all beings. They do not know …

Why is fire so beautiful?

“You have all watched a wood fire blazing in a hearth, but have you ever wondered exactly what happens to make all those dead, dark, twisted logs and branches so bright and beautiful? Isn’t it miraculous to see something that was so black being transformed into something so luminous? But you can do the same: whether you are at home in front of your own fireplace, or here, gathered round the Michaelmas fire at the Bonfin, you can use your imagination to burn your own dead branches- that is, all the instinctive tendencies of your animal nature. All that useless dead …

Love for God encompasses everything

father and child by sea

It has been said ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ Yes, because this love for God encompasses everything: health, beauty, light, intelligence, power and freedom. If we love God with all our being, if we place God first, if we make daily efforts – three, four, ten times a day – to slip out of ourselves and melt into this immensity from which we derive life, happiness, strength and every blessing, we will understand that no creature deserves our love …

Harmony and health – communicating with our cells

Photo: Human skin cells under microscope “The cells of our body are small intelligent souls. There is a whole population inside us, a population with which we can communicate and which it is our task to educate. Are you aware of it? No, or very rarely. This is why your cells do not obey you. You would like to improve the state of your liver, your stomach, your heart, your brain and so on, but you can’t – the cells of all those organs do not obey you. You don’t have any authority over them; they have a will of …

The mystery of love-who are you, who am I?

close up of woman's beautiful eyes

Love- there is nothing that human beings need more, but there is also nothing that causes them so much doubt and confusion. One day, a young man came to visit me: he told me he was engaged to be married, he loved his fiancee and he was sure that she loved him back, but in spite of that he still asked himself certain questions. He had difficulty putting what he felt into words but in the end he said, ‘When I gaze into my fiancee’s eyes, I don’t really know who I’m looking at, and I don’t know who it …

Deep breathing from the diaphragm- its spiritual benefits

Breathing head

You must realise that, in order to undertake spiritual work of any kind you must be sure that you eat and breathe harmoniously. The two processes are governed by the same laws. Just as it is bad to swallow your food without chewing it, it is bad, also, to breathe so rapidly that the air does not have time to expand your lungs and fill them right down to the bottom. You must draw deep, slow breaths and even, from time to time, hold the air in your lungs for a few seconds before breathing out again. Why? In order …

Rhythmic breathing- the universal ebb and flow

‘Everything breathes- trees, oceans, even stones… The earth is alive and it breathes; the stars too. Yes, they breathe in and out and the influence of their respiration is felt even here on earth…. Respiration can reveal great mysteries to you, but only when you accompany it with some mental work. As you breathe out, think that you are expanding to the very limits of the universe and then, as you breathe in again, you contract and withdraw into yourself, into your Self, that imperceptible point at the centre of an infinite circle. Again  you expand and again you contract… …

Creative Prayer- long extract from The Powers of Thought

Young woman in prayer

People have a great many misconceptions about prayer. They imagine that what counts are the words they use. No, very often your words fall short of the mark, they never manage to get up to heaven. Your mouth may murmur words, but you are not really praying if nothing vibrates within you. To be sure, the words you say are very important for the realisation of your prayer, but only if your desire and your thought are already powerful on the spiritual plane; if this is the case, then the words are like a signature which allows the forces on …

A beam of sunlight- what is it in reality?

Turtle swimming in sunlight underwater

A beam of sunlight is really a flood of billions of particles, each one containing a fantastic amount of knowledge about the sun and its inhabitants. When you learn to receive these sunbeams and to understand and interpret their meaning, they will bring you not only the sun’s knowledge, but the sun’s love for all creatures, as well as its life and its strength. The majority of humans gain almost nothing from the sun because they are quite happy to look at it while thinking of other things. But its much better to learn about the nature of these rays …

Breathe in Prana – respiration in the open air

Bench overlooking lake with trees

We should ideally do our morning gymnastic and breathing exercises every day in nature so as to benefit from the purest air possible, since it’s from the air that we can harness this precious quintessence the Indian yogis called prana. Prana is life energy that exists everywhere, in the earth, in water, air and fire, but it is mainly carried by the sun’s rays, and is most abundant in the early morning. Each particle of this prana is like a drop of crystalline water, a tiny, suspended sphere of light filled with a spiritual essence. And we can capture some …

Yogic breathing

Breathing and its workings have been studied closely by yogis in India for many thousands of years and they have understood their importance for our vitality and also for the correct functioning of our mind. And since they researched the subject so thoroughly, they also discovered that all the rhythms in our body are related to cosmic rhythms. So, in order to make contact with certain entities or regions in the spiritual world, we need to find its specific rhythm and use it as we would a key. This is exactly what happens when we seek to tune into a …

How to keep loved ones healthy

I know very many of us are deeply concerned about those close to us during the current pandemic and we want to do whatever we can to keep our loved ones healthy and happy. Of course, on the physical plane, I agree with medical authorities regarding hand- washing, social-distancing and self-isolation for those who are or could be affected. As a spiritualist, though, I believe that there are also things that we can do on the psychic, spiritual planes to help protect our own health and that of those we love. Even if there is no vaccine against the virus …

Rise above your worries

Daily life never fails to present us all with occasions for being worried, sad or discouraged, does it? But you have to react. Rather than sit there and do nothing except swallow tablets and tire people out with your complaints, forgetting that they too face the same difficulties, try to work with your thoughts and your imagination. See yourself surrounded by light, imagine you are sending out love to the whole world, that you are overcoming every obstacle. Gradually those images you are forming will come alive, will have an effect on your consciousness, will transform you, and at the …

Video:Meditate on light…

People think there is nothing they can do to help or improve humanity as a whole. Well, it might seem like an impossible task- it is certainly gigantic-but if you learn certain methods, you will see that all of a sudden it becomes possible…Try to imagine, for instance, that the whole of humanity is condensed into a single being, standing there by your side, and you hold the hand of this being and give them quantities of light and love. When you do this, some minute particles go out from your soul, and the love you give this one being reflects on every being in the world; they begin to  conceive nobler thoughts and desires in their heart.If hundreds and thousands of people on earth did this exercise, you would see the breath of a new, divine spirit in humanity, and without knowing how or why, they would one day wake up to find themselves completely transformed.

Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov   A New Earth

This video today can be used as a guided meditation on light.

Inner silence opens the doors to divine consciousness

beautiful woman meditating

When you succeed in creating a state of inner silence, peace and light, you are able to reach, for a moment at least, the regions of your soul and spirit that you have carried within you since the very beginning. Most human beings are not even aware of these regions that are so difficult to attain in everyday life. For, just as they are unaware of what goes on in their subconscious, they are also oblivious to what goes on up on high, in heaven, in their spirit, and in their divine consciousness. For example, when you meditate on a …
