 —————————
SEASONAL FOCUS:   Flowers announce the promise of fruition.
The Earthly Mother – Saturday Morning
The purpose of this Communion is to establish unity between man’s physical organism and the nutritive forces of the earth.
THE PHYSICAL COMMUNION:   Saturday, which begins Friday at sunset, is the beginning of the Essene week and is generally reserved for fasting. Take in only water, or perhaps juice or herbal tea (caffeine free). Become conscious of the important cleansing effects of fasting. Become aware of the quality of today’s foods.
THE DEEPENING:   Fasting is the first principle. Fast from negative thoughts, words and deeds. Fast from ego, pride and desire. Fast from all physical ills and Ye shall behold the strength and the wisdom of the spirit.
MORNING COMMUNION:   The EARTHLY MOTHER and I are one. Blessed is the child who knoweth the Earthy Mother, for she is the provider and the sustainer of life. Her harvest becomes thy body, her waters become thy blood, her winds will carry thy spirit, and as each morning comes, I shall embrace her.

MEDITATION:   The richness of the Mother’s garden surrounds us. The forces of nature toil unendingly for the benefit of all. For this we are blessed. The kingdom which guides and nurtures the plants and the forests is yet another manifestation of the Mother’s love for us, and we within this kingdom must return her blessings with respect, with caring, and with love.
NOON CONTEMPLATION:   Peace with the HEAVENLY FATHER — Ye that love thy Heavenly Father do Ye then his bidding; Walk Ye with his Holy Angels and you shall find peace within his Holy Law.
EVENING COMMUNION:   Angel of ETERNAL LIFE I invoke thee; descend upon my soul and bless my spirit with the splendor and the knowledge of eternal life. And as each evening comes, I shall embrace thee.   (Sabbath ends)
THE BLESSING:   The food upon my table shares its life with me. And as this life nourishes my body, one day my body shall nourish this earth. And until that time shall pass, I shall return her blessings with kindness, with respect, and with my love.

The Essene Holy Communion For THURSDAY

Angel of Water / Angel of Wisdom
Evening and morning and at noonday I will pray; and He shall hear my voice. ~Psalms 55:15
SEASONAL FOCUS:   Flowers announce the promise of fruition.
The Angel of WATER – Thursday Morning
In this Communion all forms of water were contemplated establishing as a living reality the unity between the waters of the body and the waters of the planet.
THE PHYSICAL COMMUNION:   This is the day of purification, of cleansing. Carry the spirit of purification with you into your meditations.  Arrange to bathe in cool water and in a leisurely and contemplative atmosphere. Consider the connections between water, the rivers of the earth, the sap of the trees and the blood in your veins.
THE DEEPENING:   Hold a bowl of water as you commune with the Angel this day. When finished, drink the water in deep reverence and feel it, like the rushing current of a river, fill your body and soul.
MORNING COMMUNION:   Angel of WATER I invoke thee; whether lake or stream or water of the well, enter my body and become my blood. Give unto me thy gift that sustains all life. Your blessings hath cleansed my spirit and quenched the thirst of my soul and as each morning comes, I shall embrace thee.
MEDITATION:   As the wave of natures glory reaches its crest and then flows on, I have gained perspective. The waters that rage in the rivers and the rains that fall from the sky are the same as the blood that flows in the veins of my body. The Earth and I are one.
NOON CONTEMPLATION OF PEACE:   Peace with CULTURE. Though thy brothers be of different origin, we all do toil in the vineyard of the EarthlyMother. We all lift our voices in praise of the Heavenly Father, and together, we all break the bread of wisdom and share in the Holyfeast.
The Angel of WISDOM – Thursday Evening
Thought was held by the Essenes to be both a cosmic and a physical function. They considered the cosmic ocean of thought pervading all space, containing all thoughts, as the highest and most powerful of all energies. It never diminishes and is never lost.
EVENING COMMUNION:   Angel of WISDOM I invoke thee; for only through the wisdom of thy Holy Law doth the Angels guide the children of light. Descend upon my thinking body and enlighten my thoughts, my mind, my intentions and my deeds. To follow the Holy Law is the root of all blessings, and as each evening comes, I shall embrace thee.
THE BLESSING:   When at first a fledgling bird tries to fly, his wings cannot support him, and he falls again and again to the earth. But one day he soars aloft, leaving the earth and his nest far behind. And so is it with the thoughts and intentions of the sons and the daughters of men; The longer one walks with the Angels, and keeps their Law, the stronger ones thoughts shall become in Holy Wisdom.The day will come, when the thoughts of men will overcome even the kingdom of death and then shall he soar to the heights of ever lastinglife in the kingdoms of the Heavenly Father.
