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.
There is no greater power in heaven and earth than in the thoughts of the Son of Man. ~The Isaiah Effect
Each of us has deep within the knowledge of all things, and when we are ready to remember, the knowledge is there to be known.  ~The Essene Book of Days
Only when we surrender to our inner nature can we begin to hear the wisdom that comes from deep within.
~ The Essene Book of Days

Peace be with you.

The Essene Holy Communion For SUNDAY

Angel of Earth / Angel of Creative Work

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 Earth – Sunday Morning. 
The purpose of this Communion was to transform the generative powers in life into the regeneration of the human body.

THE PHYSICAL COMMUNION:   This day is devoted to tending the Earth. In the spirit of regeneration, healing and abundance, focus on creative work out-of-doors or in the garden. As stewards of the Earth, understand how things grow and how we are nourished by the life force of plants. Tend to gardens, plants, flowers and trees. Don’t create “waste” or garbage. Recycle everything.

THE DEEPENING:  Spend time out-doors. Hold in your hands a stone, or a piece of wood. Explore it intently. Know that this Earth and all that dwells therein is but a divine reflection of Holy Law.
MORNING COMMUNION:   Angel of EARTH I invoke thee; for the Lord hath created this world to be a garden, where the magic of herbs and the secrets of plants – nourish and heal the bodies of men. As I regenerate my body, I regenerate my soul, and as each morning comes, I shall embrace thee.
MEDITATION:  I feel my body become one with the earth. From the richness of the soil springs the fruits that you share and thy stones have become my bones. Yea, I too am the rock. My spirit belongs to that which was kindled in the beginning of times. Bring that consciousness back to me now.
NOON CONTEMPLATION OF PEACE:   Peace with the BODY:   As thou movest the air with thy breath, movest thy body with thy soul. Eat only from the garden of thy Earthly Mother, and walk always in the light of the Holy Law; for he who hath found peace with the body, hath built a Holy temple, wherein may forever dwell the spirit of God.
The Angel of Creative Work – Sunday Evening
The purpose of this Communion was to teach the importance of creative work and its paramount role in the individual’s spiritual evolution.
EVENING COMMUNION:   Angel of CREATIVE WORK I invoke thee; for he who walks with the Angel of work has within him a field always fertile, where healing herbs and beautiful flowers blossom and grow. The mind that is idle is full of the weeds of discontentment, but he who has found his task shall not be in want of other blessings. And as each evening comes, I shall embrace thee.
THE BLESSING:  The table of my house is abundantly full, and I have much to share. I joyfully gather the fruits of my labors, and I work with the talents I have. In the labor of right livelihood, I find the greatest joys of life, and my cupboard overflows with its blessings.
 To lift your eyes to heaven when all men’s eyes are on the ground, is not easy. To worship at the feet of the angels when all men worship only fame and riches, is not easy. But the most difficult of all is to think the thoughts of the angels, to speak the words of the angels, and to do as the angels do.  ~ Gospel of the Essenes
Peace be with you.
