Angel on the mountain- Gabriel and the Winter Solstice

Following on from my last post, I am continuing the theme of the Winter Solstice with something on Gabriel, the archangel governing the Winter and birth. Gabriel, whose name means ‘God is my strength’, is well-known to Jews, Christians and Muslims- It was Gabriel that dictated the Koran to Mohammed and announced the birth of Jesus to Mary. And in the Jewish Cabbala, Gabriel is the regent of Yesod, the Sephirah that corresponds to the Moon. He governs the cosmic forces that condense and concretize etheric substances into matter and was instrumental in the mystery of Jesus’ birth and of all births before and since, both physical and spiritual. The moon is linked to the imagination and today, I would like to share a short visualization for the Winter Solstice. The imagery was influenced by the master’s words in the books ‘Angels’ and ‘The Mysteries of Yesod’ and also by the lyrics of Christmas carols. In ‘Angels’ the master explains  the name of God in the Kabbalistic Sephirah Yesod is Shadai El Hai which translates as ‘Almighty Living God ‘ …

The moon, the divine feminine and the child of light

A birth is none other than a transition from the invisible to the visible, from the immaterial to the material, from thought to manifestation. In our body, it is the moon, the archetype of the feminine, that presides over all forms of incarnation. In winter, the period during which the nights are longest and the life of nature slows down, conditions are less favourable for outward manifestation but more favourable, on the other hand, for inner life: human beings feel the urge to go within themselves to prepare the birth of the child of light, which is represented in some traditions by the symbol of the pearl. The pearl, coming as it does from the sea, is, like the sea, related to the moon. On the sephirotic tree, the pearl oyster is Yesod, the sephirah where the moon is found. In the cosmic body, Yesod represents the genital organs. That is where the pearl must be formed. This pearl represents the purest quintessence of love. The pearl oyster is the feminine principle, which brings a …

Seek help from the light

Whatever your difficulties may be, turn to the light, the light that pervades the whole universe. When you feel tired, discouraged or disappointed, think of seeking help from this light, concentrate on it and imagine you are making it course through you. Not only will it purify your psychic body, but to some extent also your physical body, and you will feel more peaceful, revived, capable of resuming your activities, for it will have given you enthusiasm. One of the most effective methods for gathering this light is to thank the Lord and bless his name. Several times a day, pause and repeat, ‘Thank you, thank you Lord; thank you for life, thank you for light, may your name be blessed for all eternity. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov Video:Meditate on light

Can drinking water improve brain function?

Fill a cup or a glass with water… Even such a small quantity of water can represent all the water on earth. Symbolically, magically, it only takes only one drop for us to be connected to all the rivers, lakes and oceans. Concentrate on this cupful, greet it so that it becomes even more alive and vibrant, tell it how much you admire it, how beautiful you find it, ask it to grant you its clarity, its transparency. Then, when you have thoroughly washed your hands, you can touch this water, dip your fingers in it, aware that you are coming into contact with its etheric body, that you are absorbing its vibrations, that they permeate you. If you do this exercise with a feeling of sacredness, you will feel your body vibrate in harmony with all of nature, you will become lighter, purer, and even your brain will work better. And since, of the four elements, water is the one which blends most intimately with our body, you can drink it thinking that you …

Rise above everyday worries

Daily life never fails to present us all with occasions for being worried, sad or discouraged, does it? But you have to react. Rather than sit there and do nothing except swallow tablets and tire people out with your complaints, forgetting that they too face the same difficulties, try to work with your thoughts and your imagination. See yourself surrounded by light, imagine you are sending out love to the whole world, that you are overcoming every obstacle. Gradually those images you are forming will come alive, will have an effect on your consciousness, will transform you, and at the same time they will attract suitable elements from the universe to become part of you. At first, you will not feel the effect of these exercises for very long and you will have to repeat them frequently. But one day the result will be there for good, you will not be able to doubt it: you will feel a living entity above you, protecting you, teaching you, purifying you, lighting your way and bringing you …

The pyramid of light and the power of global prayer meetings

Inhabitants of the higher regions rejoice when they see hearths of light all over the earth. It gives them such joy and happiness. These little points of light are the bridge between heaven and earth. Without these links, without these centres, the earth would be invaded and annihilated by dark forces.  It is these luminous centres, radiating from all over the world, that sustains the souls of human beings, giving them what they need, their food, joy and happiness.  Today, I’ve decided to tell you a secret. What is an initiatic centre, with all its life and light, in reality? It is the summit of a mountain linking earth with heaven. So you, disciples of light, you must manage to get together and form a gigantic, luminous pyramid, similar to the one that has risen above Agartha since time immemorial. Yes, for just as the pyramids built by the ancient Egyptians were modelled on the pyramid of Agartha, in the same way, above all spiritual sanctuaries, above all places where meditations and prayers are held, …
