Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find.”
“Your vibe attracts your tribe.”
These Meditations and Blessings found in the book ‘Essene Book of Meditations and Blessings’, by Danaan Parry, were inspired by the Essenes. The Essenes were peaceful people living in spiritual communities in the Middle East over 2,000 years ago. They lived in harmony with the Earth and seasonal cycles and developed physical communions for each day of the week.
The discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls in 1947, in a series of caves near the Dead Sea, brought to new light the wisdom-teachings of the Essene communities that existed in the deserts of the Middle East.
These spiritual communities were dedicated to preserving the ancient teachings and to preparing the way for the new age of Pisces, when Christ energy would flood the world. They lived in simple harmony with all of nature, following the spiritual wisdom of their inner voices, which the Buddhists call “living one’s dharma.”
Their spiritual practices allowed them to absorb and channel the vibrations and healing powers of the plants, the sun, and the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water, for their own nourishment and for the healing of the earth itself. We have much to learn from these simple folk.

I’d like to share these Meditations and Blessings in a new weekly series to be posted every Wednesday. I hope you enjoy and take them to heart.
As I enter the sacred temple
of inner knowing,
I purify my being
to prepare myself for the initiation
that I have longed to find.
I cleanse my mind and heart
as I strip away
whatever stands between
my Spirit and the source of All.
I make myself ready.
And I wait.
And it will come to me.
Ancient is the one in me
that the spirit of this season,
with its quite murmur,
Beyond, beneath the outer me,
my wise old seer
looks out upon the dance with compassion,
with a smile. And the ancient one waits
for the young one to knock upon the door.
And both of them
May God bless and protect you and…
May you always be
Safe and Comfortable
