Love, Venus and Roses

“Whenever you admire the blooms on a rose bush, remember you are standing before living creatures, descended from the planet Venus. You may ask how roses could possibly originate from Venus, given that conditions on that planet are not hospitable to life… That’s true but for initiatic science the planets are not just the physical, material bodies studied by astronomy;  for initiatic science, the planets are passage ways, they are intermediaries between cosmic currents and the earth. Through the intermediary of the planets, the earth receives currents and influences of which God is the distant source. That is why, since …

Befriending the Earth

“The universe we live in is not closed to us. We make all kinds of exchanges with it: physical, psychic and spiritual ones. Either consciously or unconsciously, we vibrate and breathe both with it and in it. But why then do humans so often feel like strangers here on earth? Because they are not aware of what they need to do for the earth to know them. The earth carries them and feeds them, but they come and go in every direction along its highways and byways without ever thinking about what they owe it. Do you want the earth …

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 medium through which human beings communicate with the universe. It is a reservoir of life forces and is completely demagnetized and drained of all its reserves by disorderly emotions such as fear, anger, worry, doubt, promiscuity and chaotic thoughts and feelings. But if the solar plexus can be emptied, it can also be refilled and that is what you need to learn: how to replenish your solar plexus:

For example, you can strengthen it by watching and listening to running water- a fountain, a spring, or a waterfall, for instance. This method may seem insignificant, but it is very effective, for running water influences the solar plexus, which begins to get rid of harmful waste matter.

Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

Of course, it is preferable to do this exercise in nature but even the water flowing from a tap has a beneficial effect  on the solar plexus. I even found that listening to the recorded sounds of a flowing stream had a very soothing influence and so I decided to upload the sounds so they can be heard as you look at the images.

For another exercise to recharge the solar plexus: You do not know what trees are

I hope you enjoyed the video. Thanks for reading- love to hear your comments.

New vibrations at sunrise

“You are not yet aware that the sun’s rays are able to feed your spirit. Yes, but only if you learn how to receive them, only if you open yourself to them with all your heart and soul. Can you not accept that light is more than a physical vibration, that it is a living entity? As long as you remain closed to this idea, you cannot benefit from all the sun’s riches.

Try to organize your life in such a way that light occupies more and more of a place in it. In spring and summer, go and contemplate the rising sun, with the thought that you can receive its rays in the same way that you take in food, water and air. And speak to them too, saying, ‘O luminous rays, permeate my being; chase away the clouds that darken my sky.’ They already permeate you without your knowing of course, but if you are conscious and pay attention, if you fill yourself with their light and warmth in the conviction that something is growing and developing within you, gradually you will feel revitalized by new vibrations”.

sunrise 2014

As the sun’s rays are just beginning to appear on the horizon, i never regret getting up before 5 am to greet it. The photos are of  particularly beautiful sunrises taken from a spot we call ‘the clump’ in the Ashdown Forest, East Sussex. It’s close to a meditation/ meeting center called the Doves Nest where disciples in the UK meet once a month for spiritual activities, including Surya Yoga- meditating at sunrise. Here’s an extract from the Daily Meditations that describes how we can receive nourishment from the sun’s vibrations….
