Video: Surya Yoga- sunrise meditation

Here is the text to the video Surya Yoga- meditative practices at sunrise: The master Omraam strongly recommended this type of meditation which is an ancient Vedic practice. The sun is so much more than just a star shining in the sky. In the morning, when you see it appear and rise on the horizon, imagine that you rise with it. The vibrations of your entire being will gradually intensify. You will soon feel the sun enter you so deeply that you will no longer be able to distance yourself from it. Every element in your being will be exalted.   You will feel projected into increasingly vast and luminous regions in space, you will discover truths that remained hidden to you up until now, and the notion of time will cease to exist. For a few moments at least, you will forget the earth with its tragedies and misery, and you will live in eternity. When you look at the sun, the centre of our solar system, try to find the centre in you: …

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.

Video -Love is a spring

The video I’m posting today contains more of Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov’s insights into the ‘Living Book of Nature’.. In early childhood, the master would search out the  little spring in the hills near his home in Varna, Bulgaria. The gentle murmur of its waters whispered  to him its secrets of life and love and he would spend hours listening to its message… As well as providing a poetic example of the powers of love within our life, the sounds of a mountain spring, (or even, less poetically, water flowing from a tap!), are able to replenish our reserves of life force stored within the solar plexus. Just as it is possible to draw on life forces contained within a tree in a forest, listening to the water flowing from a spring or stream is capable of healing the disorders within the solar plexus that are caused by chaotic emotions. Here is a description of such an exercise from ‘A New Earth’: The solar plexus is in contact with the entire cosmos and serves as a …

Video:The secret life of trees

The master loved to visit forests wherever he travelled. While on a trip to the Highlands of Scotland he was deeply moved by what emanated from the trees there- he called Scotland a blessed country because of the pure presence of those trees. I recently found a text where he speaks of the unknown, spiritual side of trees and I have used it for this video. Here is an extract from the Daily Meditations of 23rd September, which speaks of the invisible inhabitants of silence. It was taken from the book, ‘The Path of Silence’. Silence is inhabited by countless beings, in forests, lakes, seas, mountains, and underground too – the Creator has placed inhabitants everywhere. Even fire is inhabited, so too is the ether, the sun, the stars – the entire universe is inhabited. So wherever you go, in the mountains, in the forests, by rivers, lakes or oceans, if you want to be like a child of God, aspiring to a life that is subtler and filled with more light, do not disturb the …

Video: Surya Yoga at sunrise

I have just spent six weeks at the Bonfin, the  international spiritual community in the south of France, where the master gave the vast majority of his lectures. Each day started while the last stars were still shining as we climbed up to ‘the rock’ to watch the sunrise. These sunrise meditations, or Surya Yoga, as he sometimes called them, are the most precious moments of my day and I created this video to try and capture, in some small way, their beauty and inspiration. Here are a few recommendations on preparing for sunrise: Prepare yourselves in advance for the sunrise: be careful not to eat too much or go to bed too late, and avoid doing anything that might trouble or upset you. In other words, try to do everything in such a way as to be free with a clear mind and a heart at peace. If you come to see the sun in the morning with your mind centred exclusively on this essential work, knowing that your happiness, your health and your …
