The aura- our true protective garment

Clothes are screens which insulate us and protect us from the world around us. Without clothes we are more exposed and naturally become more sensitive. If we draw an analogy with our inner life, we can say that sensitivity is a manifestation of spirituality: those who make an effort to tear themselves from ordinary preoccupations and to overcome their basic instincts, are able to slowly dissolve the dark layers surrounding them like coarse cloth, and become more receptive to the divine world. In the sacred books, we read accounts in which those who have succeeded in passing initiatic tests receive a garment in reward. It may be white or coloured, but it is always depicted as a precious delicate cloth, as a material of almost otherworldly beauty. This garment symbolizes the aura, which is our true garment. In order to earn it, we must rid ourselves of everything that weighs us down and dims our consciousness, so that we may be in contact with the divine world. Our aura, this garment of light, shows that …

Harmony and health – communicating with our cells

Photo: Human skin cells under microscope “The cells of our body are small intelligent souls. There is a whole population inside us, a population with which we can communicate and which it is our task to educate. Are you aware of it? No, or very rarely. This is why your cells do not obey you. You would like to improve the state of your liver, your stomach, your heart, your brain and so on, but you can’t – the cells of all those organs do not obey you. You don’t have any authority over them; they have a will of their own. Initiatic Science, which has studied the psychic anatomy of human beings and the rules governing its workings, teaches us that we can give commands to make the cells of our organs obey us. But we have first to accept the idea that they are intelligent, conscious beings and learn to communicate with them through our thoughts by sending them rays of light and love.” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov   Harmony and health Photo credit: Neuron …

The spring of life

God is a bubbling spring. And in human beings – created in his image – there is also a spring, buried deeply and waiting to bubble up and flow when conditions are right. If we succeed, through thought and prayer, in connecting with the heavenly Source, we will enable the water from our own spring to flow, and all our cells will be watered, brought to life by the divine water. If we learn to make this spring flow within us – the spring of life, which is love and light– we will become an instrument in heaven’s hands. And then we will one day be able to fulfil the programme given by Master Peter Deunov in this very beautiful, profound formula, ‘Have a heart as pure as crystal, a mind as luminous as the sun, a soul as vast as the universe and a spirit as powerful as God and at one with God. Life has often been compared to flowing water. But what a difference there is between water that gushes forth from …

True consciousness- the sense of universality

Humans are defined by the fact that they are endowed with consciousness, but they are only truly conscious when they are awakened to the notions of collectivity, of universality. This faculty allows them to enter into the heart and soul of others, to the extent that when they cause others to suffer, they themselves experience the pain they have inflicted. They feel and understand that everything they do to others, both good and bad, they do to themselves. In appearance, each human appears to be distinct and separate from everyone else. But in reality, a part of them is connected to the collective whole and lives in all creatures throughout the cosmos. Once this collective consciousness is awakened in you, you will sense in your relations with others that everything – your thoughts, feelings, words and actions – comes back to you like an echo, because your being, by extending throughout the universe, has become a collective entity. It is this state of consciousness that can be called a sense of fraternity. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov …

The creative spirit is above destiny

In order to survive on the physical plane, we, as human beings, must receive everything we need from the external world. We would be unable to live without the elements that the earth, water, air and the sun provide for us. We are creatures, and all creatures have to get what they need from outside themselves in order to survive. Only the Creator is above this law – he has no need of anything external to himself since he is life. But since within each creature, the Creator left a particle of himself, a spark, a spirit, of the same nature as himself, thanks to this spirit that inhabits them, each creature can also become creators themselves. And so, instead of always waiting for everything to come to them from outside, human beings have the ability to act within, by means of their thoughts, willpower, and spirit, and to capture the elements they need to support their physical life and especially their psychic life. This is why the teaching of the initiates has always been …
