Spring and the secret to staying young

In Greece it is referred to as ambrosia, in India soma, and alchemists call it the elixir of eternal life… All cultures make mention of the existence of a beverage of immortality and some even explain how to prepare it. In reality this beverage exists in nature, but not just anywhere of course. It is found only in the most subtle and purest regions of space and only at specific moments, such as sunrise. Dawn is the best time of the day, because the true beverage of immortality is light, and you can capture it in the morning at sunrise and use it to nourish your subtle bodies. If, in spring and summer, we go to watch the sunrise, it is in order to drink this quintessence of life as it spreads throughout the universe. Stones, plants, animals and humans can all receive it. All living beings receive these particles unconsciously, but humans can learn to capture them consciously. Make an effort to get up and greet the sunrise, to welcome this light into your …

Meditation for Springtime

You received so much this morning at sunrise, what is there left to add? I am here to interpret certain phenomena, to explain things to you, that is all…for the rest you must address yourself to the sun. Look at the work he does on all the little seeds that were fast asleep! He says, ‘What are you waiting for? It is time to give! Come on, get to work!’  ‘But we are too weak!’ ‘No,no. come on try! You will see, I will help you’, and the tiny seeds take courage. each day the sun warms them, caresses them, speaks to them and in a little while the most magnificent flowers appear to inspire poets, painters and musicians. Why should it not be the same for us? We are seeds that have been planted somewhere in the spiritual soil, and when we are warmed by the sun’s rays, we give off colors and perfumes so exquisite that even the gods are in ecstasy. If we become like flowers, why would the Divine beings not …

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 …

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…
