Happy Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception.
On this sacred day, we find ourselves at the confluence of deeply spiritual and significant celebrations: the first day of Hanukkah, the sacred Shabbat, and the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Each of these observances carries profound spiritual meaning, and their convergence offers a unique opportunity for reflection and celebration.
Today we celebrate Mother Mary's divine emergence, and also the sanctified Womb of Mother Anna, from which this miracle unfolded. This day symbolizes the Womb of the Wise Woman, the enigmatic and spiritual essence embodied in the Purple Rose. The Immaculate Conception represents a moment of divine grace and the potential for all of us to be vessels of profound spiritual purpose.
Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem and the miraculous endurance of the menorah's flame. This festival reminds us of resilience, faith, and the triumph of light over darkness. As we light the first candle of the menorah, we are reminded of the enduring nature of hope and the continuous pursuit of spiritual enlightenment.
Shabbat, the day of rest and spiritual rejuvenation, aligns beautifully with the first day of Hanukkah. The serenity of Shabbat intertwines with the jubilant spirit of Hanukkah, inviting us to embrace both rest and celebration. On this day, we are called to reflect on the sanctity of time, the importance of spiritual replenishment, and the joy and gratitude of life's blessings.
The convergence of these celebrations brings together themes of light, purity, rest, and spiritual dedication. The lights of Hanukkah echo the purity symbolized by the Immaculate Conception, both signifying the presence and intervention of the divine in our lives. The restfulness of Shabbat offers a space to meditate on these themes, allowing us to integrate their lessons into our lives.
It's a time to contemplate the miracles in our lives, the purity of intent, and the sanctity of our spiritual practices. As we light the menorah, rest in the peace of Shabbat, and honor the Immaculate Conception, we are reminded of the enduring presence of the divine in our world and the continuous call to elevate our spiritual consciousness.
In the spirit of these profound celebrations, I am thrilled to announce that starting today, I will be sharing a series of channeled messages. These insights, divinely inspired, will be presented over the next eight days through my blog. Each message is intended to deepen our spiritual journey and connect us more intimately with the sacred narratives we honor today. These daily revelations will guide us in our journey of spiritual enrichment and contemplative understanding.
DAY 1: THE FIRST LIGHT
Our Lady who is the Essence of Light Blessed is the Infinite Space within your womb. And the Radiance of the Soul of the Messiah breathing within your Infinity. Through the Power of your Supernal Light and Holy Grace, Grant us Purity and Holiness So we may receive the baptismal rebirth in water, fire and spirit, and be conceived in the Sanctity of your Womb. As we receive the Mystery of your Light May the fullness of Adonai Messiah be born within us. Shlom Lech Maryam Shlom Lech Maryam Shlom Lech Maryam Ahava, Ana Otero MOTHER MARY MESSAGE:
All beings are within the One Web of Consciousness and Light Creation and the One Web of consciousness and Light Creation is within all beings. Breathe in deeply, create space within yourself. Let everything go. You are free to be yourself. Detach from all and accept everything. When your heart learns to stop judging and wanting, you will return to your true nature. See reality as a mystical whole and understand that duality is wanting you to understand that all things are united in essence. When you chose to come here incarnated on Earth, you were veiled and you forgot your true nature as a Being of Light. You have been living in a world of dreams, of illusion, and it is time to wake up and understand that you are part of ALAHA , THE SACRED UNITY. Now you are experiencing an unveiling, as it is time for you to ascend. Sometimes you feel heavy in this process because you want to ascend taking your old fears and limitations with you. If you were to jump off of a boat to save your life, would you take all of your belongings with you into the water? Of course not. Shed what is necessary, become light, make space. Open your heart, and allow these words to be a healing balm for whatever you are holding that is heavy. Today I ask you to Pray, to Forgive, to be of Service, to give thanks and to surrender, so that the Soul can merge with the Light. Remember that nothing in your consciousness is fixed, so allow your consciousness to be open to whatever the Universe has to teach you and wants to give you. It is time for you to be emptied and jump into the unknown Mystery of Totality and Infinite Light. Mother Mary Channeled by Ana Otero
Over the next eight days, I invite you to join me in a sacred ritual, intertwining channeled messages from Mother Mary, Mother Anna, and Mary Magdalene with the lighting of the Hanukkah candles. This practice is not just about following tradition; it's about bringing these profound teachings into our lives through a Gnostic-Mystical lens.
Preparing Your Space: You don't need a traditional menorah for this ritual. Simply gather eight candles, which could be as simple as tea candles. Arrange them with one candle in the center – this is the Shamash, the helper candle that lights the others. Place four candles to its left and four to its right. Remember, in the time of Mother Mary and the Christ Community, the lighting of candles was a part of their Hebrew tradition. We're embracing this practice to deepen our connection to our spiritual roots.
Embracing the Darkness: Before lighting your first candle, take a moment to sit in the dark. Embrace the words of Rumi: "Darkness is your candle." Let the darkness be a canvas for your inner light to emerge. Turn your attention inward, searching for that inner flame.
Becoming the Shamash: Imagine yourself as the Shamash candle, a beacon of service, illuminating the path for others. Allow your breath to deepen, filling every cell of your body with vital energy. Ground your feet firmly on the earth, feeling the life force rise from the ground into your being.
Drawing Down Celestial Energy: Lift your awareness to the heavens, drawing down divine energy through the crown of your head. Let this celestial force infuse your entire being. Sit still and feel this sacred energy coursing through you, transforming your words and actions into vessels of love, light, and blessings.
Lighting the First Candle: Now, with a heart filled with sacred intention, light your first candle. As its flame flickers to life, let it symbolize the awakening of your inner light, the spreading of wisdom from the channeled messages, and the unity of our spiritual heritage.
This ritual is more than a mere observance; it's an embodiment of mystical wisdom, a journey of transformation from darkness to light. Let each candle you light over these eight days be a step deeper into this profound spiritual exploration.
For these 8 days we chant and listen to the Magnificat, the Song of the Maryams.
