Meaning of this ritual
June 15th 2012
Saying words of consecration produces changes in the vibrations of things and beings. We should never forget that there are other subtler planes beyond the physical body where what happens eventually influences the physical plane. Therefore we must consecrate our life each day to God, that is, consecrate not only our activities but also our whole body, including our limbs and our organs, to make them repositories and transmitters for currents of pure energy. Why do I advise parents to consecrate their child to the Lord as soon as it is born? Because in doing so they are laying down grooves in the child’s psychic matter and so drawing it toward the luminous and the divine, where it will receive currents of beneficial forces, while the dark currents will be averted.
