Essene Meditations And Blessings #63

Meditation

As the force of new life wells up in me,

I hear the far call

Of my ancient spiritual father, the sun.

This is a time for reaching upward,

A time for growing toward the sky

As I still draw nourishment

From my mother the earth.

I am the link;

I am the channel

Between the sun and the earth.

I am the life.

The Blessing

Mother, you are love in me,

Overflowing,

And I bless you as I grow.

Father, you are love in me,

Guiding me,

And I bless you as I strive to know

My true nature.

Soon my buds will open,

And my own young channel of love

Will be available for you to use

To heal the earth.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #62

Meditation

How strong in me is my need to grow

To expand To meet the promise of the coming spring.

There is a joy in me that carries me onward

From this physical being

To the awareness of the cosmic ocean of Love

In which I dwell.

May I be blessed

To share this joy with all beings,

In whatever way I can.

The Blessing

There is a power

At work in the world

Which assists each living thing

To rise above its prison

Of desire and attachment,

And to soar

In the freedom of God’s love.

I place myself in the path of this Power

And surrender to the divine Will

That charts the course of the path.

It is this Power

That allows me to grow.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #61

Meditation

And now the life-force in me,

as in all beings,

Cries out to know itself

Apart from the Mother.

My life,

The uniqueness of that which I am,

Calls to me to experience,

For it is only in the full freedom

Of my own experiencing

That I gain the wisdom of my connectedness

With all that is.

For I am the one

And I am also the many.

The Blessing

As I experience the new life in me

Bursting its bounds,

I ask to be made more clearly aware

Of my part in the plan,

That I may prepare myself

To become the fullest expression and channel

For peace.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #60

Meditations

There is a part of me

That is rooted firmly in the earth.

It is to this grounded, solid me

That I now deeply bow.

For without this,

There could be no expansion,

No life-giving nourishment

Coursing to my tender new leaves,

No strong stem to reach toward the sun.

The earth is my home

For this incarnation,

and I am blessed.

The Blessing

There is a sacredness that infuses my life

As I realize that my own growth is my work.

I am the canvas

I am the artist

I am the paint.

I ask that the artist be ever guided

By the Artist,

and that as I grow, I come to know

The perfection

Of the unfinished masterpiece

That is life.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #59

Meditation

Even in the quiet winter

I feel the Mother’s wisdom

Urging me to grow.

The earth nourishes me

As I contemplate my path

From the womb of winter

To my place of service

As a preparer of the way.

The Blessing

As the long night slowly yields to day,

Even as the old millennium surrenders to the new,

I, too, surrender to my next step

Which carries me toward

My natural state of limitlessness.

The winter teaches me of inner abundance,

Inner completeness,

As I now prepare for the outer learning

That this new year brings.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #58

Meditation

There is a force in me,

Pushing, pushing,

Beginning its outbreath

After a long sleep.

Sacred darkness slowly yields

To newborn light.

As I move outward

From the stillpoint of outer death

To share my new-found breath of life

With all,

I shall never forgert

The inbreath of the Mother

That nurtured me

Through the winter’s night.

The Blessing

I ask that the Light,

The Creative Force of the universe,

Breath the cleansing outbreath of spirit

Into my heart and my deeds.

I rejoice in this time of promise,

Of new stirrings

Of the rebirth of the lotus

Which will one day

Open fully to God.

Essene Meditations and Blessings #57

Meditation

As the clear winter water

Nourishes the seed within the earth,

So the water of my new-found awareness

Of who I truly am.

This awareness

Has not yet fully matured,

And I rest content

In the arms of the unfolding universe,

Which will reveal all wisdom

In its time.

The Power of the unmanifest

Even now works within my spiritual heart,

And I am at peace.

The Blessing

Deeper in me than my beliefs

Lives the place

Of my Natural Knowing.

I will use this winter’s stillness

To strip away beliefs

That hide the still-small-voice

Of my inner knowing.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #56

Meditation

The promise, the prophecy, is within me.

That which I have waited for is now present.

No longer need I fear.

Within me shines

The first glimmering of the Light,

And I am filled with the awareness

That the fulfilling of the prophesy

Is not a thing apart from me;

It is me.

As the first small rays of the sun

Return to my world,

I, too, return slowly to the world of form.

I humbly accept the mantle of that which I AM.

As I merge my light

With the light of all the beings of Light,

I surrender to my own divinity.

The Blessing

Life, you are a profound expression of Love.

The gentle, quiet expansion

Of the winter-mother’s love

Fills me with inner joy.

I bow before the purity of this love

Which nourishes without attachment.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #55

Meditation

Wherein lies the source of joy?

The inner peace of winter

Prepares me for the answer;

It shouts quietly to me,

“Do not seek happiness; seek rather

Your true nature,

Your true reason for being;

Seek your dharma.

Joy is the child of completeness,

Of living your dharma.”

At this time of new, small beginnings,

I feel the clarity of vision growing in me,

And I am pregnant with joy.

The Blessing

The silent stirring of new life in me

Fills me with an inner strength,

The strength is good;

And it comes from a place

Deep inside my being

That has only been reached

In the depth of ego-death.

This power I trust;

This is the power

Of love and compassion

The world cries out for.

The veil of illusion

Lifts slowly and reveals.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #54

Meditation

Slowly the balance shifts

From inner creativity

To outer manifestation.

Slowly my core of inner strength

Streams outward

Along my nervous system,

Bringing health and vitality

To the whole of my being.

The life in me prepares itself,

Strengthens itself

For the moment in the cycle

When it will overflow its bounds,

Surging toward a oneness

With all of life.

The Blessing

I evoke the forces of peace and harmony

And ask these forces

To prepare me as a channel

For their overlighting guidance.

My heart swells with thanksgiving

For a winter of inner preparation

Which will lead me to the first step

In becoming a channel for peace:

That of finding peace

Within my own being.
