Mary and the Christ Child

“In his telling of the birth of Jesus, St Luke revealed the events that take place in the soul of every human being in the form of images. It is these symbolic images that I want to show you now. For the Christ Child to be born there must be parents, a father and a mother: the father, Joseph, is the mind, the spirit; the mother, Mary, is the heart, the soul. When the heart and soul are pure, then the Christ child is born, not of the mind and spirit, but of the Universal Soul, the Holy Spirit, in the form of Fire, or Divine Love… a pure flame that invades and fertilizes the human heart and soul. The soul and heart represent the feminine, receptive principle, whereas the mind and spirit represent the masculine principle and together they prepare the conditions for the Holy Spirit, the Universal Soul or Fire, to take possession of the soul of Mary. That is when the child is born. But as this birth must take place in …

Thoughts model matter

“You say you pray and meditate, but do you really know how to use your thoughts? Both within us and around us there exists a subtle but unorganized matter that has not yet been given form. Our thoughts have the power to shape this matter, and it is therefore up to us to work on it as we would with modelling clay, so that we become creators in the world of beauty, harmony and light. Everything we do, create and construct on the physical level is important, of course, but what we create with our mind is infinitely more important. These creations, which are also living entities, are what heaven judges us on. Because so many human beings have no control over their thoughts, they populate space with negative entities, which spread discord and chaos everywhere! Disciples, on the other hand, are aware of the power of their thoughts and try to produce only entities that will bring peace, light and love wherever they are.” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov On overcoming negative thoughts- Rise above the …

Finding a soul mate- the evolution of sexuality

This longer extract is related to the post ‘Meeting of souls-making love last’ and in it the master explains what we have to do in order to experience this divine form of love, the true meeting of Soul and Spirit. He outlines a whole process of spiritual evolution- from the  “male” and “female”  stage when we are driven solely by the biological need to satisfy our instincts, through the “brother and sister” stage where we begin to treat each other with much greater delicacy and respect. Eventually, we become capable of achieving the fusion of our souls and spirits in regions of light and beauty:   SJJ “There is no need for me to tell you what males and females are, you will find them even amongst the most cultured and highly educated people! They are human beings who, in their innermost selves, are still primitive, who give priority to their instincts and their sensuality. Their desires and appetites are so demanding that they are incapable of denying them anything, male and female alike have …

Prayer releases a higher power

“Initiatic Science regards the human being as a microcosm created in the image of the macrocosm, the universe. And since the Lord reigns from the highest point of the universe, in human beings there is also a peak representing the Lord – their higher self. So when you concentrate on the Lord to ask him to grant your wishes, you touch the highest point of your being, and very pure, subtle vibrations are released and spread through you, producing highly beneficial changes. And even if you do not receive from the Lord all that you asked for, you do gain something, some very spiritual element. It is true that your request often is not granted, because from heaven’s perspective what you are asking would not be particularly good for you, and so it may be refused you. But your request is useful in that you have succeeded in reaching this peak within and so been able to release a higher power, which spreads through you, influencing all your cells and all the entities within, and …

The magical powers of music

“While you listen to music, learn to work with it; use it to form a mental picture of all the things you wish for. You want so many things- and yet you do nothing to get them! Music gives you all possibilities and the very best conditions, for it creates an atmosphere that is like a strong wind filling your sails and driving your ship on towards a new world. Music is a powerful aid in making things come true. Instead of letting your mind wander aimlessly, fix it firmly on the most ardent  desires of your heart. If it is health you need, imagine yourself to be the picture of health: see yourself in all your activities – walking, talking or eating- radiant and glowing with health and communicating health to all around you. If it is intelligence and light that you need, if you are always getting things wrong and making a fool of yourself, use music to help you imagine that you are learning and understanding things, that light is flooding into …
