Essene Meditations And Blessings #7

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

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 prophecy

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.

 

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Healthy, Happy

Safe and Comfortable

Essene Meditations And Blessings #6

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

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 the 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.

 

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Healthy, Happy

Safe and Comfortable

Essene Meditations and Blessings #5

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

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

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Essene Meditations And Blessings #4

 

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis  “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

Meditation

From the calm place

At my spiritual center

I have touched the wisdom

Of the earth in winter.

Regeneration streams

From the holy earth to me,

And I am full.

I now gather to me the lessons

Which will empower me

To channel this life-giving earth force

For the good of all beings.

 

The Blessing

The winter’s journey

To the source of inner creativity

Now turns and guides me slowly

Toward outward manifestation.

Depth will be fullfilled

In expansion

And I contemplate

My dharmic path of service.

I give thanks for the Mother’s gifts

Which has brought me to this.

Essene Meditations and Blessings #3

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

Meditation

The morning calls to me

To slow my pace and be,

To ease my crowded schedule

And perhaps just sit and stare.

To focus on a burning log,

On a raindrop on a leaf,

Or to find my own image

In a flickering candle flame.

The mother’s weather urges me

To let it go, let go.

A deep primal inner voice

Is whispering… within.

 

The Blessing

I have seen the maple tree;

The leaves have left its limbs.

It stands bare and brittle now,

Its spirit gone within.

And in my mind I know

That deep within the earth

Its lifeblood pulses in its roots,

Rejuvenating strength.

How like that maple tree am I,

As I go within my core,

Experiencing outer death

And inner depth

Once more.

 

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Healthy, Happy

Safe and Comfortable

Essene Meditations and Blessings #2

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis  “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

“You vibe attracts your tribe”

 

 

 

Meditation

Each life upon this earthly plane

Knows beginning and knows ending.

Each turn of the yearly wheel as well

Brings birth and death.

Each breath I take reminds me, too,

That I must die each moment

So as to bring a blessed newness

To the next breath that I take.

For if each outbreath ends in death,

Each inbreath sees me born anew,

And present to that moment.

 

The Blessing

Throughout the flow of passing seasons,

You have shared your Light with me.

No middle-person have I required

to walk the path with you.

For in my heart

You dwell forever,

Not in some mansion high,

And the blessings that you give to me

Come from deep inside.

 

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Healthy, Happy

Safe and Comfortable

Essene Meditations And Blessings #1

 

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.

-Essene Book of Meditations and Blessings

 

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.

 

Meditation

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.

 

The Blessing

Ancient is the one in me

that the spirit of this season,

with its quite murmur,

calls.

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

are me.

 

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Healthy, Happy

Safe and Comfortable
