Daily Meditation- New Year’s Day

Be careful how you spend the first day of the New Year, because this first day is as important for the rest of the year as the time of birth is for the rest of your life. The life of every human being is marked by the planetary influences at work at the time of their birth; the whole course of each life is contained in seed form from the beginning, which explains why horoscopes exist.On a smaller scale, the first day of a year bears within it the seed of the days to come. This is why you must take care to live in light, love and harmony on this first day. Throughout the day, through prayer, meditation, songs, good thoughts and good feelings, try to inscribe imprints of light that will have a positive influence on all the days of this year. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov Daily Meditations 1st January, 2022 Long extract for the New Year

The New Year

The Cabbalah teaches that each day is a living, sentient being which bears the record of all our physical and psychic acts. You might say that the 365 days of the year are like a magnetic tape on which each day, with all that it has brought of good and evil, happiness and unhappiness, is recorded. Each separate year of our lives is like a separate tape recording. The New Year is new and yet, at the same time, it is already old, aged by all that each one of us has already gone through in our lives. The new year is like the pure water of a mountain stream as it mingles with the stagnant waters of the lowlands; it is new and yet it is not altogether new because it is lived by human beings who are burdened by their past. This is why, although all is new, men and women never manage to live an entirely new life. The New Year is a spotless virgin, but who knows what shady resorts it will get …

A long extract from ‘The New Year’

Today I would like to say a few words to you about the teaching handed down in the esoteric tradition concerning the first day of the New Year. And as the only kind of knowledge that really interests me is that which can be immediately useful, you can apply what I shall tell you to your own everyday lives. Most people celebrate New Year’s Day in night clubs, bars and dance-halls. They express their joy at the coming of the New Year by having parties and amusing themselves and indulging in all kinds of follies. And then they fritter away the rest of the year in unconsciousness and futility and, as unconsciousness always leads to tribulations, it is not long before the tribulations begin! It is quite senseless to start off the New Year in this way; it shows that they who do so have no inkling of the spiritual and magical aspect of things. But this is the aspect which interests me. The Cabbalah teaches that each day is a living, sentient being which …

Two thoughts for New Year’s Eve

Write down on a piece of paper the things you most wish for in the way of your spiritual development, for the good of your friends, and for the whole world, and entrust them to the Angel of Fire. Fire is the messenger of the invisible world, and as soon as these papers are burned, entities on high start to take note of them and study them to see how they can grant your wishes. Of course, you must not expect immediate results, but if you are patient, if you continue to work towards the goals you have expressed, one day you will see your prayers answered. For when fire is involved, there are always results. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov Daily Meditations 29th December 2020 If humans do not know how to act today, what future do they think they can expect? While hoping it will be better, in truth they are worried: what to do to be safe from need, from danger? For it is true that the future is always uncertain. It is therefore …

Thinking the Future-the Powers of Thought

Here is some spiritual guidance for the new year from Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov. The extract below is chapter two of ‘The Powers of Thought,’ published by Prosveta: The future, remote though it may be, holds the promise of a magnificent destiny for the whole world; the evolution of human beings is leading them closer and closer to the Godhead. You can have a taste of that extraordinary state of beauty, fulfilment and strength, and live in the reality of it in advance, by conjuring up a picture of it in your imagination. This is an extraordinarily effective exercise, capable of transforming your entire life. Unfortunately, human beings have no notion of how to use their minds in this way, and that is why there is so little light, or joy and happiness in their lives. There are two great truths that you must know: the first, that the power of thought is real and, the second, that you can use it to project yourself into the future and experience it in advance. Look what happens …

Two Daily Meditations for New Year’s Day 2021

Here are two meditations for New Year’s Day, from the Daily Meditations. Hope they give you renewed hope after such a difficult year! Light is at the end of the tunnel! Happy New Year. May 2021 bring you all the blessings of light and divine love. SJJ This morning, you already speak of yesterday as ‘last year’. All day yesterday, until the very last second before midnight, in fact, until eleven fifty-nine and fifty-nine seconds, it was still the old year. On the stroke of midnight, the New Year began.If you take the time to think about this, you will make some interesting discoveries. A single second divides one year from the next. However, before you reach that final second, you have to go through the long succession of days that lead up to it. Well, you should know that the transformation of a human being follows the same pattern. Yes, the spiritual transformation of a human being happens in the blink of an eye. In no more than a split second, a person can …

Meditation New Year 2020

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 deeper and wider.As today marks the beginning of a new year, strive to consciously draw a furrow in your soul. Concentrate on a divine thought, make a divine wish, and live today in such a way that it becomes imprinted in you. Heavenly powers will be alerted and will come to support you in your efforts. Each day they will be there to tell you, ‘Remember, on the first day of the year you made …

Church bells ringing

A meditation and poem for the ending of the year

Do not wait for the kingdom of God as you would a political or social organisation that comes to impose itself on earth. The kingdom of God is first and foremost a state of consciousness, a way of living and working. That is why it cannot be realised on the physical plane until it is first realised in our thoughts. Once realised in our thoughts it will descend into the heart, into our feelings, and it is then that it can finally be expressed in our actions. For such is the order of manifestation in matter: thought – feeling – action. One day the kingdom of God will manifest tangibly on earth, but first it must enter the thoughts and feelings of human beings. And we can see that the process has already begun. Thousands of men and women in the world nourish within themselves the ideal and love of the kingdom of God; there are many more than you may think. And in some of them, in their conduct and their way of life, …

New Year’s Eve Meditation

“Tomorrow a new year begins, and you can begin to make ready for it consciously by focusing on a goal: a quality you want to develop, a bad habit you want to lose, a project you want to carry out for the glory of God. With this thought, this wish, it is as if you are laying the first stone, and then all the luminous nature spirits will contribute their help, so that you can realize your divine plan. These should be your thoughts on this last day of the year. Unfortunately, you won’t meet many people concerned with such things. Most are getting ready to indulge in all kinds of excess. Can you be surprised, then, if the year goes badly for them? So you at least, who are disciples of the divine school, do your best to see in the new year with the light as your focus.” … “If you want the new year to be truly new for you, think of it as a living, wealthy being that can bring you …

train tracks diverging

You shape your future every day, every hour

When you decide to start a project, be aware that you shape your future every day, every hour, and even every second. When you have a good thought, or a good feeling, this sets you instantly on the path of light. But if a few minutes later a person or an incident triggers a selfish, unjust thought, or a feeling of anger, or a desire for revenge, your orientation changes, and you veer towards darkness. And even if on the physical plane, no change can be seen immediately – as these thoughts and feelings do not have time to materialise – something has changed in the higher regions, in the direction you are taking. When  a certain lever is pulled, the train changes tracks. Well, that is what people do every day, sometimes a hundred or a thousand times a day: once in the right direction, once in the wrong direction – they change tracks. Since everything is recorded, each of these changes is recorded too. If they do not produce anything permanent on the …

New Year Meditation 2019

Try to realize the importance of the moment you wake up in the morning, because the rest of your day depends on it and the rest of your life depends on this day. If you do not live today correctly, you will spend each tomorrow repairing the consequences of the mistakes you made the previous day. All those who concern themselves with the future while neglecting the present twenty-four hours have left gaps everywhere in their lives, and they come back on earth in order to correct, make amends and suffer. By simply living twenty-four hours well, you will prepare the twenty-four hours to come, and the programme that lies ahead will be easier to carry out: the ground has been cleared, nothing lies in the way, so life becomes easy. So begin by living well the first moments of each day, in order to prepare the hours that follow. Tell yourself, ‘The past is the past, and the future is “yet to come”… but I have today. So, set to work! Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov in meditation

Daily Meditation 1st January

Wishing you peace, love, light and abundance for the coming year- all the blessings of heaven! Here is today’s  Daily meditation from the master Omraam: Here comes another new year! So, be vigilant, and strive to spend the first day of the New Year in the best state possible, because this first day is as important for the rest of the year as the moment of birth is for the rest of your life. The life of every human being is marked by the planetary influences in effect at the moment of their birth, and this is the reason for horoscopes: the course of a life retains the imprint of the influences that were present at this first moment. To a lesser degree, the first day of the year influences the days to come. This is why we should be attentive and live this first day in light, love and harmony. Every hour of the day – through prayer, meditation, song, and especially good thoughts and good feelings – try to retain luminous impressions which …

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! On this first day of the year, you are all full of hope! You tell yourselves, “I didn’t get what I was hoping for during the last year, but now, with the new year, I shall.” Each new year brings hope even to the most despondent. Even if deep down they may not be so convinced, they still have some hope. With each new year hope is reborn: you cannot help but think that something is going to improve for you, that a door will open. You will say, “And what if nothing improves and no door opens?” At least one door will open if you believe you have to do something to make it happen. And what is that? Picture yourself in particular situations in your life, and imagine you are behaving fairly, wisely and lovingly. By working in this way, you are already preparing your future. If you are sincere and persevere, you will have an influence on the forces of nature and the beings of light in the invisible …
