A hymn for Ahura-Mazda
We worship the Spirit Divine,
all wisdom and goodness possessing,
Surrounded by Holy Immortals,
the givers of bounty and blessing,
We joy in the works of His hands,
His truth and His power confessing.
We praise all the things that are pure,
for these are His only Creation;
The thoughts that are true,
and the words and deeds that have won praise; These are supported by Him
and for these we make adoration.
Hear us, O Mazda!
Thou livest in truth and in heavenly gladness;
Cleanse us from falsehood,
and keep us from evil and bondage to badness;
Pour out the light and the joy of Thy life
on our darkness and sadness.
Shine on our gardens and fields,
Shine on our working and weaving;
Shine on the whole race of man,
Believing and unbelieving;
Shine on us now through the night,
Shine on us now in Thy might,
The flame of our holy love
and the song of our worship receiving.

With peace and harmony around you close your eyes and take a couple of deep breaths. Breathe in peace and breathe out glory, breathe in peace and breathe out glory! Let all your worries and all your fears go away from you! Let all your physical body, from the top of your head all the way down to your toes, relax! Joy now is entering your body! It makes you feel light, it helps you understand how important you are in the eyes of God.
See around you now an energy of pure white light, it wraps all around you and it encourages you to get up on your feet. As soon as you get up balloons with shiny colours appear in front of you and prompt you to enter the one of your choice. Choose the coloured balloon that attracts you most and enter it without any hesitation. When you enter your balloon, you have a good look around you and you see lots of little stars everywhere. Looking at those stars you realise that they are luminous and that they emit an energy of love all around. You touch one of them and as soon as you touch it the balloon starts to rotate and starts going higher and higher. You feel light, you feel light as a feather now!
Suddenly music starts to play; it is a beautiful and melodious music! This beautiful energy of music now transforms the balloon into a glass ball, so you can see outside as the glass ball is moving. It takes you around and around to show you how beautiful everything is this time of the year! The houses are decorated with ornaments that represent Love and Peace in the world! Look over there, look the man and the woman they are smiling, they are not angry; an understanding of love is reborn once more in their hearts! Look the children over there, they are smiling too, they are happy, they know their dreams might come true at this time of the year! Feel the Peace and Harmony that is all around you, all around your world, all around your poor world which is tormented by so much stress and greed!
Thoughts of your childhood are coming to reveal to you once more the importance of this period of the year. They show you that you need to let them go, not accumulate them like a burden on your shoulders and let yourself free to feel the happiness, the serenity, the charity, the love of this festive period in your heart! Clarity and Fraternity are reborn in you again!
The crystal ball starts to move again and is taking you higher and higher. You go through the clouds away from our physical world! Curiosity is now in you, curiosity to see where the crystal ball is now taking you. In the distance you see a layer of mist; that mist is coming nearer and nearer to you now. You go through that mist and on the other side there is a figure waiting for you. Immediately you recognise that person, is one of your loved ones, one of your very dear ones who passed away some time ago. You recognise in that person your father or your mother, your uncle or your auntie, or a dear friend of yours. He/she came to wish you courage and strength in your life; he/she came to reassure you that they are always with you to give you energy of unconditional love. You are feeling now quite emotional! You know now that you are never alone, you know their love is always with you and one day you too will go back home and be with them. You know now that they are waiting to receive you with open arms!
With this Loving and Healing energy all around you, your thoughts now go to your dear ones, family and friends who need help, support and healing, and whose names appear in our healing book; you want to help them experience the healing energies you have just experienced. You present them to the Guides and you ask that they extend to them too these healing energies. Bring these friends in your mind now and send them your love and healing…..
Thank you Father and you our Guides for all the loving healing you sent to all of us. Help us now with the unconditional love you extended to us to heal our souls and our bodies. Help us to feel and to act like the true brothers and sisters that we are.
Your Guide now tells you that the time has come for you to return to your physical world and share with all others what you have learned and experienced during this trip. You now enter again in your crystal ball. The ball starts to rotate and slowly, slowly starts its descend. You go through the layer of mist and from there you go through the clouds and now find yourself back in this hall. Slowly exit from the crystal ball and make your way back to your seat.
Feel now your body becoming heavier and heavier, feel your heart beating stronger and stronger, feel yourself breathing heavier, feel the chair you are sitting on, feel your feet touching the ground. Move your fingers and your toes and when you are ready open your eyes.
Inner Peace This is so true!!
If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
...Then You Are Probably The Family's Pet Dog!
It was Christmas Eve. A poor old lady was sitting alone, except for her cat, in her tiny house, in front of a small fire. Suddenly, there was a flash of light, and the old woman's good fairy appeared in the room. The old woman was astonished, but the fairy reassured her:
"Don't be afraid! I am your good fairy. You are very poor, and all alone at Christmas, so I have come to grant you three wishes, to cheer you up."
The old woman was about to speak, but the fairy held up her hand.
"Wait!" she said. "Before you make a wish, think carefully! You will get exactly what you wish for, and no wish can be undone!"
So the old woman sat silently, staring at the fire and thinking. Eventually, she spoke:
"First", she said, "I want to be very, very wealthy." Poof! Immediately, the tiny house was packed with pots full of gold coins, and sacks of bank-notes. There was more money than anyone could spend in an entire lifetime.
The old woman looked around and smiled. She thought some more, and spoke again:
"Next", she said, "I want to be young and beautiful again, like I was when I was 18." Poof! The old woman disappeared. In her place sat a beautiful young woman, with smooth, white skin and long, golden hair. The woman looked at her hands and arms, felt her hair, and smiled. "Third", she said to the fairy, "I want you to change my cat into a handsome young prince, who will love me and take care of me all my life!" Poof! The fairy disappeared, and the cat leapt up from his place by the fire as a handsome young prince. He reached out to the woman, pulled her to her feet, embraced her, and kissed her passionately. Then he gazed into her eyes and said:
"Hah! Now you're really going to be sorry that you took me to the vet!"
