Ritual Day 7: Lighting the Candle of Eden

Ritual of Miracles and Divine Union: Lighting the Candle of Eden


This ritual is designed to help you reflect on the miracles in your life and reconnect with the essence of Divine Union, symbolized by the Garden of Eden. It is a practice of acknowledgment and commitment to living in harmony with your soul's true template.


  • Choose a quiet and comfortable space.

  • Light your Hanukkah or Advent candle, or any candle that you have been using doing these days of Rituals to the Light.

  • Set aside some uninterrupted time for this practice.

Steps of the Ritual:

  1. Contemplation of Miracles:

  • As you prepare to light the candle, take a moment to reflect. Ask yourself: "Do I see nothing as a miracle, or is everything a miracle?"

  • Contemplate all that you have manifested, received, and created in your life. Recognize these as your personal miracles.

  1. Lighting the Candle:

  • Light your chosen candle, seeing this act as a symbol of the holiness and miracles you bring into your life.

  • As the flame takes hold, visualize it as a manifestation of your inner light and miraculous nature.

  1. Reflecting on the Human Journey:

  • Think about the fall of Adam (Adama, representing humanity) in the Garden of Eden and how it symbolizes the challenges and labors of human life.

  • Reflect on the efforts you've made in your life for healing, love, sustenance, and creation.

  1. The Garden of Eden as Divine Union:

  • Contemplate the Garden of Eden not just as a physical location but as a state of being in Divine Union - a Dimension of Light.

  • Understand that living in this dimension means embodying ease, grace, and creative transcendence, even in the face of challenges.

  1. The Candle as a Symbol:

  • As you gaze at the candle, let it represent the Garden of Eden and your commitment to living in accordance with your soul's true template.

  • Acknowledge your intention to embrace the flow of life with ease and grace.

  1. Affirmation of AHAVA:

  • Conclude the ritual by Chanting 'AHAVA', the Aramaic - Hebrew word for love in service, love in action. Let this word resonate with your commitment to living a life of miracles, love, and divine union.

  1. Closing the Ritual:

  • Spend a few moments in quiet reflection with the candle. Absorb its warmth and light as symbols of the divine presence within and around you.

  • When you feel ready, gently extinguish the candle, carrying its symbolism and the energy of the ritual with you.

Post-Ritual Reflection:

Consider journaling your thoughts, feelings, and insights from this ritual. Reflect on how you can continue to embody the principles of Divine Union and recognize the miracles in your everyday life. This ritual is a reminder of your intrinsic connection to the divine and the miraculous nature of existence.

Channeled Message for the Day From Mary Magdalene

In your journey towards the true essence of love, understand that love is not merely an emotion, but a state of being, a resonance with the divine source. Love is the foundation of all creation, the thread that weaves through the fabric of the Cosmic Intelligence, connecting all souls and all that exists.

To embody Divine Union, one must first recognize the divine within oneself. Acknowledge that you are a spark of the infinite, a vessel of divine love. In this realization, let go of the illusions that separate you from your true nature. Embrace the wholeness that exists within you, for in this wholeness, you mirror the unity of all existence.

As you walk this path, let each step be guided by love. Let your actions, words, and thoughts be expressions of this higher love. When challenges arise, meet them with a heart full of compassion and understanding, for these are the moments when love can truly transform.

Divine Union is not just the merging of two souls, but the union of your soul with the cosmic heart. It is in this sacred communion that you find the depths of love, the peace that surpasses all understanding, and the joy of being in harmony with all that is.

Remember, the journey to love and Divine Union is not a journey outward, but a pilgrimage inward. It is in the sacred sanctuary of your heart where you will find the keys to this kingdom of love. Spend time in stillness, in meditation, and in communion with the divine. Here, you will discover the wellspring of love that resides within you, waiting to be unleashed and shared with the world.

In your daily life, seek to see the divine in all beings. Recognize that each person you encounter is a reflection of the divine, and in honoring them, you honor the sacredness of life itself. In this way, your life becomes a living prayer, and your nurture the power of love.

Dear ones, as you journey towards Divine Union, know that you are never alone. The loving presence of Alaha, the Divine, is always with you, guiding, supporting, and nurturing your soul. Trust in this love, surrender to its flow, and allow it to lead you into the realms of infinite possibilities
