A Sacred Ritual to Connect to the Sun and Appreciate the Moon

The power of prayer extends beyond any religious ritual…it is a way to connect to your higher self, to allow the energy of the universe to work through you – so your intentions can be made manifest through the attention you place on them. Prayer is not dogmatic, nor is it limited to just putting your hands together and saying “Amen”. In its purest form, it is the practice to help raise your vibration and commune with a higher frequency through intention.

When you deliberately start your day with an intention, and spend a few moments focusing your attention on the good you would like to see made manifest in the world, you then begin to allow. Allowing is key when you say a prayer, make a wish, or set an intention…because once you declare your hope, you must allow the “balloon” you’re creating to be inflated with belief, not deflated with fear.

The Essene Tree of Life is an esoteric system of morning/evening “communions” to stay aligned with your intention, and to consistently vibrate on the level that allows your hopes and dreams to come to fruition. The Essene’s believed this Tree of Life “represented fourteen positive forces, seven of them heavenly or cosmic forces and seven earthly or terrestrial forces. The Tree was pictured as having seven roots reaching down into the earth and seven branches extending up toward the heavens, thus symbolizing man’s relationship to both earth and heaven”. Starting each morning with the sun rise, spend some time with the day’s “mantra” and allow…then in the evening, after the sun set, repeat…

Don’t look at this as a prayer in the sense of kneeling, or worshipping anything…it is all about intention, and allowing. If you allow this to become a ritual, part of your morning routine, just as brushing your teeth and getting ready for the day – every day you will intend to flow congruently with the universe, and you will begin to see a radical shift in the way every day begins to flow harmoniously as well.
