Angel on the mountain- Gabriel and the Winter Solstice

Gabriel, whose name means ‘God is my strength’, is well-known to Jews, Christians and Muslims- It was Gabriel that dictated the Koran to Mohammed and announced the birth of Jesus to Mary. And in the Jewish Cabbala, Gabriel is the regent of Yesod, the Sephirah that corresponds to the Moon. He governs the cosmic forces that condense and concretize etheric substances into matter and was instrumental in the mystery of Jesus’ birth and of all births before and since, both physical and spiritual. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov The moon is lined to the imagination and I would like to share a short visualisation for the Winter Solstice that was inspired by two books by the master: Angels and The mysteries of Iesod In Angels the master explains  that the name of God in the Kabbalistic sephirah of Iesod is Shadai El Hai. This translates as Almighty Living God and most literally God of the Mountains. As he is the regent of this sephirah, I visualise Gabriel silently presiding over the high mountain summits like an immense …

Meeting with angels of light

Whether you are alone in nature or in your room, you are in fact never alone; entities are part of your life. Those who work for the good are always encountering entities of light who rejoice with them and help them in difficult times by affording them glimpses of a way out of their problems, of solutions to them. Most of the time this happens unbeknown to them. But if they strive to become aware of these benevolent presences, they will benefit much more from them. How to draw these entities to you? With your love. Think as often as possible of sending them a smile, a glance, a beam from your heart, while saying, ‘O you who inhabit the vastness of space, I love you, I wish to understand you, to be in harmony with you.’ Perhaps no-one around you will notice that you have sent a message out into space, but the entities will, and they will receive your love and rejoice, sending love back to you a hundredfold. These are true exchanges, …

The angels of the four elements : self- transformation

Earth, water, air, fire – the four elements – are governed by angels, the servants of God. That is why we ask the Lord to send us these angels to help us in our spiritual work. Here is a prayer: ‘Lord God Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, Master of the universe, send me your servants, the angels of the earth, water, air and fire, so that I may work with them for the coming of your kingdom and your justice. May the Angel of earth absorb all that is unclean in my physical body, so that I am able to carry out your will and express your splendour! May the Angel of water wash my heart of all impurities, so that it becomes a receptacle of your infinite love! May the Angel of air purify my intellect, so that it shines with your light and your wisdom! Finally, Lord, send me the Angel of fire, that it may sanctify my soul and spirit, so that they become the dwelling place of thy truth!’ Omraam …

Love as angels love- the creative fusion of voices

When you sing these mystical songs together in the choir, you are working with the two eternal principles, masculine and feminine, in their purest manifestation. The two principles were created to meet and fuse with each other but there are different degrees to this fusion. Choral singing represents the most spiritual degree, for it takes place above, far from the physical body, where the voices meet and this meeting is not without result. In the same way that the union of a man and woman on the physical plane gives birth to a child, the fusion of  their voices is a creative act, it produces forces, energies which are active throughout space. So, then, the fusion of the two principles also takes place through singing. Very few people think about the reality of this fact or work with it: but if you decide to make the necessary efforts you will manage to detach yourself form the heaviness of the Earth until you feel currents climbing up your spinal column  and your whole being will burst into …

Learn to love as angels love

Light spirits in the invisible world are constantly making exchanges of love: they meet in space, greet each other, exchange pure rays of light and continue their journey. Not having a physical body does not prevent exchanges and love. You too, you do this with the creatures around you, thousands of exchanges that are not physical. You do not kiss everyone, you do not take everyone in your arms, but you continually have encounters that nourish you and make you happy. Why not increase the number and quality of these exchanges? Love as understood by most humans, this passionate, selfish, possessive, jealous and cruel love, is true slavery. You may say, ‘But we have a body, we cannot express ourselves as angels do.’ In fact, it is not your body that is the most against the spiritual manifestations of love, it’s your psychic world that you have not learned to control and enlighten. Having a body does not prevent you from coming closer to this spiritual concept of love, for the soul and mind are …

Invisible friends

Each day we are supported by the benevolent entities of the invisible world. If we are able to continue breathing, eating, walking and working, it’s because, every day, we receive this support; we are carried, helped and given the inspiration we need to become creators. For our part, we also support certain beings, who are unaware of where this help comes from. Every living being emits waves, and by nurturing luminous thoughts and warm feelings in ourselves, by praying and meditating, we send out beneficial waves with which we comfort all those in difficulty. How can that not bring joy and purpose to our life? How encouraging it is for us to feel we are supported by thousands of evolved entities and that we too can support other creatures!

Sharing Christmas joy with angels

In this extract from the Daily Meditation for Christmas Eve, the master explains that we receive subtle, vivifying elements for our heart and soul at Christmas  by  sharing our joy with the angels: “In an initiatic school we see festivals as something quite different from occasions to have feasts, hang up decorations and spend a few pleasurable moments. Each person endeavours to contact energy currents in the subtle regions which will bring life and renewed vitality to their heart and soul. They also know that entities of light come to draw on elements from this atmosphere of joyful exchanges which they will then use for carrying out their work across the world. To help them in this work, each person entrusts to them their joy and all the spiritual riches that this festival brings them, in order to benefit others. And this joy and wealth comes back to them magnified.” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov    Daily Meditations Carol singing  is a great way to spread joy at this time whether out in the streets, in a …

Angel messengers

The word ‘angel’ comes from the Greek ‘anguelos’ meaning ‘messenger’. According to the master, the joyful news those angels brought the shepherds was of the coming of one who would bring a new teaching of life, a  life that is pure and filled with the light, love and joy of the spirit. This spirit of love will one day be born in every human soul. Although I suppose supernatural events such as the shepherds’ experience are uncommon, it is still possible for all of us to  communicate with angels through thought and prayer. It is they that receive our prayers and they act as messengers, bringing answers to us. This extract from ‘Angels and Other Mysteries of the Tree of Life’  explains how they can also give us some of their qualities and their light: “When you wake up in the morning, why not start your day by thinking of all those creatures of light going up and down between the earth and the throne of God? If you did this, your whole life would …
