Extracts from the books of Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov on working with light

A luminous aura attracts all blessings

Celestial entities love the light, and when they catch sight of someone who is surrounded by this light which initiatic Science calls the aura, they rush towards them. If I ask you, ‘Do you really long for love, peace, health and beauty?’ you will all reply, ‘Oh, yes! We want nothing but this!’ So then, what are you doing to obtain them? All blessings cannot come to you simply by chance. The best way to attract them is to work on your aura: vivify it with your love, illuminate it with your wisdom, make it powerful with your strength of character, and make it clear and transparent with your purity. Even if you do no concentration exercises to develop the colors of your aura, simply working within to nourish the divine virtues will attract the beautiful colors corresponding to them. And then, celestial creatures who come to bathe in it will bring you their presents, and around you, human beings will feel nourished, calmed, strengthened and transported in a divine direction.

The whirlpool- how to set the world in motion

You are standing on the seashore creating a little whirlpool as you twirl a stick round and round in the water: gradually twigs, scraps of paper and bits of cork begin to spin in the current. If you persevere, there will soon be small boats then big ships and finally the whole world will be caught up in the movement. The etheric ocean in which we are immersed is like this liquid ocean, and by means of our thoughts, we are able to set the whole world in motion – provided that we never stop. But as we do not practise, and above all, as we do not persevere, nothing happens.As long as you fail to understand the few rules on which the spiritual life is based, you cannot become a conductor for the divine world, a worker in the vineyards of the Lord. You must keep stirring until all the particles are caught up and moving together towards the accomplishment of the luminous work you have undertaken – not only on yourself but on all the …

Working towards peace: three methods of helping humanity

A lot of us are concerned about the state of the world at the moment and especially about the threats to peace. So here are three simple but effective meditative methods of helping humanity from Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov: Send thoughts of light to heads of state If you want to help your country, you must touch the person in charge with thoughts of light, so that he or she may always be well inspired. You cannot help a whole country directly; it is too big. It is enough- and it is far easier- to help one person, just one. And this one person, in turn, will help everyone else, for much depends on the leader. If he or she can promote just laws in the areas of public health, housing, and education, the whole population will benefit, all bccause one person was well inspired. See humanity as a single being You think it is not possible to bring light and peace to all the people on earth, as there are so many of them! Of …

Waterfall and flowing stream

Let all around us be peace, love

Let the spring of love flow within you. Through your thoughts, your feelings, your wishes, your words, let it gush forth over all the creatures and objects around you and beyond, on the trees, the mountains, the oceans. Even if you are by yourself, remember to utter words of peace, of hope and of joy for all human beings on earth, knowing that these words will have an effect somewhere, no matter where. You do not yet know what it is possible to achieve with love. And since we can only give to others what we possess ourselves, try first to establish harmony and light within you, and then, once you feel you have succeeded in making this harmony and light real within you, in your heart and your soul, project them into space. This is what working with love is all about: becoming a beneficial presence for the entire world. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov This thought from the master (today’s Daily Meditation) chimes with one of my favourite tracks on Youtube at the moment. The …

Only light disperses darkness: the power of prayer

Today I want to post some extracts as a spiritual response to the terrorist acts in Paris this week. So here is something from the master describing  methods to overcome the power of negative forces in the world. As he said, ‘Only light has the power to overcome darkness’. The first extract is about sending S O S signals to attract the aid of luminous spirits. We can do that through prayer and by focusing the mind on thoughts of light: The world is like a vast ocean in the dark of night, and you are like so many little boats drifting rudderless on that ocean. If you want luminous spirits from on high to come and rescue you, you have to light your lanterns and send up flares to let them know who you are. In other words you have to radiate light so that the sublime spirits can find you in the midst of darkness. The Gospels tell us to pray, and to pray is to send light signals up to heaven. The invisible …
