Ancient Instruction on Meditation
“And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.” Revelation 8:1. The seventh seal or seventh chakra connects us to the divinity within, to our divine source; our holy spirit, a positive spiritual energy, a connection that requires silence in heaven; quiet in the mind. Set aside half an hour each day to be still in mind and body.
“And the earth was without form, and void;… Set aside all incantations, mantras, or repetitious prayers, which are extraneous attachments to belief, creating the void that is needed for the new creation to begin.
and darkness was upon the face of the deep. This means nothingness in the mind. No visualizations, no gazing at crystals, no making of sounds. Listen only to the primordial sound of your breath, the physical manifestation of the holy spirit.
And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” Genesis 1:2
“ When we quiet our mind, we abase its power; the power of the mind giving way to the power or holy spirit of the heart, which void of all extraneous attachments, is free to move upon the waters, influencing the thoughts of our mind. It takes time to quiet the mind, to turn off the everyday thoughts, so be patient, “But let patience have her perfect work” (James 1:4), that perfect work being a complete transformation. When the ego-driven thoughts of the mind are restrained, the holy spirit of the heart is free to move the subconscious thoughts into the light; into the awareness of the conscious mind.

One thought on “MEDITATION”
But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it… Exodus 14:16
“By lifting up our metaphorical rod through the mind discipline of silence, we lift up our holy spirit, which uses its power over the sea; over the thoughts hidden in the depths of our mind, bringing them up to the surface; from the subconscious, a completely spontaneous occurrence in that it takes place through the power of the heart, not the power of the mind… The rod of discipline, applied to mind and body, gives power to the heart, evoking a more powerful mind-heart-body response, allowing for the complete salvation of the soul, the word soul defined as the vital principle in man credited to the faculty of thought, emotion, and action… The process has 12 steps or judgments, in which is 7 weeks of work. Seven, being the spiritual number, indicates an indeterminate period of time. The word seven means seven times, to seven oneself, correlating these seven spiritual weeks of work with the seven literal weeks that fall between Passover and Shabuoth or Feast of Weeks…”
…Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan… and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.
2 Kings 5:13,14
Our spiritual passover takes place when we make a decision to pass over from our old way of life into a new way of life. The seven weeks that follow represent the period of time in which we complete our six metaphorical days of spiritual works, resulting in the creation of a new heaven and earth; a new mind and heart, with a new way of thinking and believing, resulting in a new life.”
