Sunrise- why it is worth getting up for?

The sunrise – that splendid event that takes place each morning – is worth going to see, even if it’s hard for you to get up early in the morning, even if you’re half asleep. You may say you won’t gain anything from it if you’re half asleep. But you are mistaken: in spite of yourself and even though you are unaware of it, work is going on, the results of which will appear much later, and you will be astounded. Someone who lived through scenes of violence and tragic events as a child wasn’t yet old enough to understand what was happening to them, but one day these dramas begin to resurface in the form of anxieties and behavioural difficulties that are very hard to heal. Everything, whether we understand it or not, is recorded and may one day come back up to the surface. That is why, even if you don’t ‘understand’ anything about the cosmic phenomenon of a sunrise, just have the right attitude, and your spirit, soul and body will receive …

In the first light of dawn

“What a privilege it is to be able to contemplate the sunrise! This is why, each year, as spring returns, you should prepare for these unique moments. No presence in the world can bring order and harmony into you like the sun, nor give you the same light, love, peace and joy. The sun is the source, bursting forth, shimmering and flowing… When you succeed in immersing yourself in this flow of light, you will never want to tear yourself away from it again. And if you arrive very early, well before the sun has even risen, and see the first light of dawn, a feeling of sacredness comes over you, as if you had been admitted into the presence of the mysteries that the whole of nature is celebrating. You even feel the need to walk differently so as not to disturb the atmosphere. You enter into true poetry. How can we not wish that all human beings might one day experience and drink in this beauty, purity and abundance.” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov Here’s …

Video lecture -why watch the sunrise?

Editions Prosveta have a youtube channel with video lectures subtitled in English. It’s called Editions Prosveta English. This video describes the benefits of going to watch the sunrise. I have made a video of beautiful sunrise photos with extracts from the master Omraam on the beauty and benefits of watching the sunrise : In the First Light of Dawn SJJ

Video: Surya Yoga at sunrise

I have just spent six weeks at the Bonfin, the  international spiritual community in the south of France, where the master gave the vast majority of his lectures. Each day started while the last stars were still shining as we climbed up to ‘the rock’ to watch the sunrise. These sunrise meditations, or Surya Yoga, as he sometimes called them, are the most precious moments of my day and I created this video to try and capture, in some small way, their beauty and inspiration. Here are a few recommendations on preparing for sunrise: Prepare yourselves in advance for the sunrise: be careful not to eat too much or go to bed too late, and avoid doing anything that might trouble or upset you. In other words, try to do everything in such a way as to be free with a clear mind and a heart at peace. If you come to see the sun in the morning with your mind centred exclusively on this essential work, knowing that your happiness, your health and your …

Drink light…

Each morning, from dawn onwards, the sun sends a profusion of specks of gold out into space, and we can fill our spirit,  soul, intellect, heart and also our physical body with these specks of gold. Our whole body, from our brain right down to our feet, can benefit from this gold…  There are different kinds of light. The kind our nervous system and our whole organism need the most is light from the sun before it rises.This is the most subtle, spiritual light, and it affects our psychic bodies. This is why, if we know how to look at the sun, something opens up in our solar plexus, and we begin to drink light. It is like a reservoir being filled with a precious quintessence. When the reservoir overflows, our only need is to share this elixir with all living creatures, and there is no greater joy than giving what we have received from the sun. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov  Daily Meditations

New vibrations at sunrise

“You are not yet aware that the sun’s rays are able to feed your spirit. Yes, but only if you learn how to receive them, only if you open yourself to them with all your heart and soul. Can you not accept that light is more than a physical vibration, that it is a living entity? As long as you remain closed to this idea, you cannot benefit from all the sun’s riches. Try to organize your life in such a way that light occupies more and more of a place in it. In spring and summer, go and contemplate the rising sun, with the thought that you can receive its rays in the same way that you take in food, water and air. And speak to them too, saying, ‘O luminous rays, permeate my being; chase away the clouds that darken my sky.’ They already permeate you without your knowing of course, but if you are conscious and pay attention, if you fill yourself with their light and warmth in the conviction that something is …
