Oft in the stilly night…


Oft in the Stilly Night
by Thomas Moore

Oft in the stilly night
     Ere Slumber’s chain has bound me,
Fond Memory brings the light
     Of other days around me;
          The smiles, the tears,
          Of boyhood’s years,
     The words of love then spoken;
          The eyes that shone,
          Now dimmed and gone,
     The cheerful hearts now broken!
Thus, in the stilly night,
     Ere Slumber’s chain has bound me,
Sad Memory brings the light
     Of other days around me.
When I remember all
     The friends so linked together,
I’ve seen around me fall,
     Like leaves in wintry weather:
          I feel like one
          Who treads alone
     Some banquet-hall deserted,
          Whose lights are fled,
          Whose garland’s dead,
     And all but he departed!
Thus in the stilly night,
     Ere Slumber’s chain has bound me,
Fond Memory brings the light
     Of other days around me.

“As I had told you, last night, at exactly midnight, as the Angelus was sounding and the powerful Divine Impulses were coming to me, I once again acted as the ancestral angelical traditions require.
Again did I enter the prayer room, again did I light the great celestial candelabra, so that the room might be placed under the high and solemn sign of the Divine.
I took your sacred parchment and set the second ceremonial sign upon it.
As usual, an atmosphere of contentment and serenity reigned over this sanctuary, and all the favourable elements, essential to the performance of this great Mystical Act, came together, so that all should go well.
The time had come for me to begin. The clock struck midnight…
Very soon, the spirit of your Protective Guardian Angel merged with mine. Thus, shortly after midnight, we entered into spiritual communion and multiplied the power of our divine impulses, so that we two spiritually became one.
I then continued to meditate most firmly by focusing all my thoughts exclusively on you. Then, taking the dish of sacred Crystals that I had prepared for you, solely by the light of the candelabra, I recited a secret divine prayer on your behalf, in order to purify the earth element that surrounds you.
Once again, I was allowed to enter into Spiritual-Angelical Contact with you to remotely transmit to you this extremely powerful positive Divine Energy you need.
This purifying energy flow immediately acted in your favour. It purified the Earth element upon which you live, to continue to free you from the nefarious energies that assail you.
Afterwards, I remained silent for quite a while. And, as most often happens, new images paraded through my mind. Once again, there you were, in the centre of a magnificent garden with leafy trees bearing golden fruits. Angels flew around you and placed magnificent fruit offerings at your feet, while you serenely admired this magnificent bucolic setting in which your new life was about to flourish.
A golden existence of happiness and wealth…
I am delighted for you.
One thing is sure: your Protective Guardian Angel now accompanies you on each new day god brings us. He watches over you and wards off all danger, so you may go in peace, moving straight toward this magnificent life that lays before you, waiting only for you.
As always, I ended the ritual by greeting Heaven and thanking it, so perfectly well did this second great Ceremony go.
And with the first ceremony, you still have to conclude this one by a beneficial action of your own.
To do this, sit on the floor, as comfortably as you can. You may sit on a cushion if needs be, but it is absolutely essential that you be able to lay your hands on the ground on each side of your body. Do this and feel the presence of the ground beneath you through the palms of your hands. Concentrate on this sensation.
Take seven deep breaths, breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth. Every time you inhale, visualize the earth’s protective force entering you through your hands. Every time you exhale, surrender all your cares and woes to the earth through your hands.
Once you have completed the seven-breath cycle, recite the following incantation:
“Protective Angel who watches over me, I thank Thee for Thy kindliness, Thy help and Thy light. Receive my thanks for having purified the earth upon which I walk to release my fate from nefarious obstacles. Thus will I be able to attain, unhindered, the destiny that is mine.”
When you are done, shake your hands 3 times in front of you to rid yourself of residue of the adverse energies that oppose your happiness.
You will soon feel a new person being reborn within you, a person who will go far, very far ahead, to a rich land brimming with joys, each one greater and more beautiful than the next.
You are headed the right way. Now, do not hesitate to keep me posted on every positive feeling you experience and every new event you see happening in your life.
As for me, I will continue to watch over you until our third great angelical ceremony.
Keep an eye out for my next messages.”
Your messenger and friend,
