Exquisite blue rose

The extraordinary powers of thought

You have an extraordinary instrument at your disposal: thought. But why don’t you use it? Instead you are content to grumble about all the things you lack. You need beauty, poetry, silence, smiles, kind looks, and kind words? Well, instead of complaining about the fact that people are not giving you these, know that you can create them instantly through thought. You might say, ‘But there’s nothing; I can’t see anything, I can’t feel anything.’ Of course, if you wait to see them materialized, it will probably take centuries. But they exist in the mental plane. And this is the reality you should hold on to. Imagine a hypnotist gives you a piece of paper, saying, ‘Here is a rose. Smell it.’ You will go into raptures over the wonderful fragrance of this rose. How is this possible? You have captured his thought, and his thought, together with the words he has used, has already created the rose in the subtle plane. He has succeeded in projecting your consciousness to the subtle plane and you …

Breathe in Prana – respiration in the open air

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 of these drops of light through our breathing. By consciously passing the air through our nostrils, we set our subtle centres in motion and they work to extract the quintessence from the air. Once it has been captured, this quintessence circulates; it is like fire running through the network of nerves on either side of our spine. Just as blood circulates though veins, arteries and capillaries, prana circulates throughout our nervous system. Not only does …

Hands and divine magic

In whatever you do, think only of spreading beneficial influences. You can do this by means of your hands, which are among the best instruments for transmitting them. When you caress the head of someone you love, instead of seeking egotistical pleasure, concentrate on your hands and say, ‘May God bless you. May light reign in this head, and may all angels come and make their home here.’ At this moment, your love will no longer be sensual; it will be transformed into a beneficial energy and will also bring you an extraordinary sensation of joy and expansion. And when you touch the head of your child, or its small arms and legs, bless them as well, so that the angels come and make them a magnificent being. Learn to bless everything you touch: objects, food, and other beings. This is true white magic. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov     The Book of Divine Magic Below is another extract on hands from  A New Earth- it includes some simple exercises that can easily be done every day- …

Seek help from the light

Whatever your difficulties may be, turn to the light, the light that pervades the whole universe. When you feel tired, discouraged or disappointed, think of seeking help from this light, concentrate on it and imagine you are making it course through you. Not only will it purify your psychic body, but to some extent also your physical body, and you will feel more peaceful, revived, capable of resuming your activities, for it will have given you enthusiasm. One of the most effective methods for gathering this light is to thank the Lord and bless his name. Several times a day, pause and repeat, ‘Thank you, thank you Lord; thank you for life, thank you for light, may your name be blessed for all eternity. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov Video:Meditate on light

Can drinking water improve brain function?

Fill a cup or a glass with water… Even such a small quantity of water can represent all the water on earth. Symbolically, magically, it only takes only one drop for us to be connected to all the rivers, lakes and oceans. Concentrate on this cupful, greet it so that it becomes even more alive and vibrant, tell it how much you admire it, how beautiful you find it, ask it to grant you its clarity, its transparency. Then, when you have thoroughly washed your hands, you can touch this water, dip your fingers in it, aware that you are coming into contact with its etheric body, that you are absorbing its vibrations, that they permeate you. If you do this exercise with a feeling of sacredness, you will feel your body vibrate in harmony with all of nature, you will become lighter, purer, and even your brain will work better. And since, of the four elements, water is the one which blends most intimately with our body, you can drink it thinking that you …

Rise above everyday 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 same time they will attract suitable elements from the universe to become part of you. At first, you will not feel the effect of these exercises for very long and you will have to repeat them frequently. But one day the result will be there for good, you will not be able to doubt it: you will feel a living entity above you, protecting you, teaching you, purifying you, lighting your way and bringing you …

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 their own. Initiatic Science, which has studied the psychic anatomy of human beings and the rules governing its workings, teaches us that we can give commands to make the cells of our organs obey us. But we have first to accept the idea that they are intelligent, conscious beings and learn to communicate with them through our thoughts by sending them rays of light and love.” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov   Harmony and health Photo credit: Neuron …
