Love as angels love- the creative fusion of voices

When you sing these mystical songs together in the choir, you are working with the two eternal principles, masculine and feminine, in their purest manifestation. The two principles were created to meet and fuse with each other but there are different degrees to this fusion. Choral singing represents the most spiritual degree, for it takes place above, far from the physical body, where the voices meet and this meeting is not without result. In the same way that the union of a man and woman on the physical plane gives birth to a child, the fusion of  their voices is a creative act, it produces forces, energies which are active throughout space. So, then, the fusion of the two principles also takes place through singing. Very few people think about the reality of this fact or work with it: but if you decide to make the necessary efforts you will manage to detach yourself form the heaviness of the Earth until you feel currents climbing up your spinal column  and your whole being will burst into …

Learn to love as angels love

Light spirits in the invisible world are constantly making exchanges of love: they meet in space, greet each other, exchange pure rays of light and continue their journey. Not having a physical body does not prevent exchanges and love. You too, you do this with the creatures around you, thousands of exchanges that are not physical. You do not kiss everyone, you do not take everyone in your arms, but you continually have encounters that nourish you and make you happy. Why not increase the number and quality of these exchanges? Love as understood by most humans, this passionate, selfish, possessive, jealous and cruel love, is true slavery. You may say, ‘But we have a body, we cannot express ourselves as angels do.’ In fact, it is not your body that is the most against the spiritual manifestations of love, it’s your psychic world that you have not learned to control and enlighten. Having a body does not prevent you from coming closer to this spiritual concept of love, for the soul and mind are …

Meditation for Easter Sunday

A seed that’s been placed in the earth can be compared to a creature imprisoned in a tomb. When the angel of warmth comes, he wakes the creature, saying, ‘Go on, get up now, come out of the tomb!’ And then the life that was buried begins to stir: a little stem divides the seed in two, giving birth to a shoot that one day will become a magnificent tree. That is resurrection. Before resurrection is possible, the tomb must be opened, and tombs are opened only by warmth. And warmth is love. Those who have a lot of love in their heart, spiritual, disinterested love, are able to open the tombs of their cells. Until their cells are animated and given life, they remain inactive, and people are unaware of all the riches they contain. But after resurrection, after this awakening of their cells, their consciousness expands, and they move in another dimension – the dimension of the spirit – through everything they feel and everything they live Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov    Daily Meditations

Good Friday-sacrifice and the beauty of the new life

By accepting to die on the cross, Jesus made a sacrifice, and we must meditate on this in order to measure the grandeur of it, and to link ourselves to it through thought. But in the new life which the Christ is now proposing, it is not recommended that we dwell on the suffering of the cross, because the Christ also manifests through beauty, joy and light. In the new society, it is thoughts of the glory of Christ that must nourish our inner life. Heaven rejoices that we no longer kiss the ground and kneel beside graves, because there is a more glorious future in store for us. And if there are dead to be tended to, it is not those in the cemeteries, but those buried deep inside us: our old habits and our old misconceptions. These are the dead we must seek out and be done with! When we succeed in this, we too will enter into the glory of Christ.

Easter and the living book of nature

Christmas and Easter – the birth of Jesus which is celebrated in the beginning of winter, and his resurrection which is celebrated in the spring – represent two pages in the great Book of Nature. This idea may offend many Christians, but instead of being offended, it would be better to reflect on it. Those who fixed the dates of these feast days long ago were beings who possessed great knowledge of the relationship between nature and the human soul. They had meditated profoundly on the life of Jesus and his teaching and had understood that in his identification with the cosmic principle of the Christ, an ideal encounter had taken place in him between the spiritual life and the life of nature, the universal life. In an effort to distinguish itself as clearly as possible from paganism, which was characterized by the worship of the forces of nature, Christianity severed its living ties with the universe. This is why even today the profound meaning of their religion eludes many Christians. Only a few initiates …

Raphael and the healing energies of Spring

The four seasons are placed under the influence of four archangels: Raphael presides over spring, Uriel over summer, Michael over autumn and Gabriel over winter. When the spring equinox is near, all the spirits and forces of nature work under the leadership of Raphael to bring life back to every part of the universe. This renewal in nature is synonymous for humans with regeneration and therefore also with healing. On the Tree of Life, Raphael is the archangel of the sephirah Hod, the region where cabbalists placed the planet Mercury. Furthermore, the attribute of the god Mercury (Hermes in Greek mythology) is the caduceus, the symbol still used for medicine today. And the name Raphael means ‘God has healed’. For Christians, Easter is the great spring festival: the whole of nature celebrates Christ’s resurrection, which is also the resurrection of all creatures. This is why, when spring arrives, each person has some serious work to do: it is time to let go of everything inside that is old and obsolete. So, speak to the archangel …

Rejuvenation- entering the round of Spring

As spring approaches, you feel a whole awakening of life: flowers, trees, birds… In nature, a new wave is breaking. It is one of the most extraordinary phenomena; renewal. Each year everything is renewed… except human beings! Human beings remain the same, they do not think of joining in unison with this renewal – it is as if they are barricaded. Why don’t they make an effort to open themselves, to open their doors and windows so that life can penetrate, permeate them? Some will say, ‘But for us, it’s over, we’re old. Spring is for the young.’ Following this reasoning, they cut themselves off from the source of life and they age more and more quickly. We must all participate in the renewal, there is no distinction between young and old. Have you heard old trees say, ‘Oh! us, you know, we have already passed the age of budding and flowering, we now leave that to the young’? No, in spring they are also covered in leaves and flowers. So even old grandmothers, even …
