Initiation is the process of a Meditator sitting down in meditation and being given a permanent connection to higher Light and Sound Energy by someone who is already Initiated. The meditation teacher giving the energy is often referred to as an Initiator. Typically the Initiation takes place over 2 days during which the Meditator sits and does longer meditations of between 1/2 hour to 1 hour broken up with gentle teachings and guidance from the Initiator. They may sit for 6 or more hours on each day. Where this happens is important as it is supportive of the Meditator to be able to sit somewhere comfortable, quiet and free from distractions and so some people rent a room or some act as a Hostand let the meditator use their own meditation room.
There are naturally logistics and expenses such as the Initiator travelling, food and accommodation, and then there is the time. It is important to understand that the Spiritual Energy revealed during initiation is not created by the Initiator, but comes from Divine Intelligence, from Love and is a gift. This awareness that Initiation is a gift, which is not earned or bought sits at the heart of the Initiation.
The Spiritual beings on higher dimensions who direct the flow of Spiritual Light and Sound Energy have communicated in the past that “Initiation is FREE“. They understand that mankind at this time has a difficult relationship with money. Money can corrupt people, but even if it is handled with kindness it can bring up issues in others. But life is never black and white and this has raised genuine questions like what about the costs of covering travel or providing food? There is not one of us who teaches this meditation for free who is does not encounter financial considerations. Having to hire halls to teach in. Having to pay for long distance travel costs to go and initiate people etc.
I have been communicating directly with the Spiritual Hierarchy on the questions above as it is useful to get clarity on the issue of money in relation to Initiations. Below is the guidance I have received:
In the heart of the initiator nurture humility.
In the heart of the host nurture charity.
In the heart of the meditator nurture gratitude.
All act towards The Source with respect.MARK ZARETTI
What was very clear as I channelled this information was the choice of words, for example “donation” has a slightly different meaning from “contribution” though both are voluntary. The quote above really bring to attention that it is the intention of the person which is important. Acting from humility, charity, and gratitude with respect.
What is beautiful about this meditation is that initiation is empowering and that with regular meditation and an open heart you can realise enlightenment once initiated. Once enlightened you may be able to initiate others and help spread LOVE.
The information above has been channelled directly from the Spiritual Hierarchy because we asked for clarification. Each of us is empowered and we should look to this guidance as guidance and not fall into the trap of seeing this as a rigid set of rules. For example it says “the meditator can contribute to the cost of food”, but that doesn’t mean they have to. It means that it is OK if the meditator wants to. The host may want to pay it forward and provide the food as an act of support and charity. An Initiator may have a sponsor who will pay for their travel and accommodation so that the meditators do not need to. What this really means is that the spirit of humility, charity, and gratitude should be the guiding principles. These qualities are not fixed but fluid, they flow and can be expressed in many ways. When you are aligned with Love then humility, charity and gratitude become second nature so really the guidance above could be summarised as “Act with Love“.
Having been initiated, helped guide others towards Initiation, realised enlightenment and gone on to initiate other people I am so humbled and inspired by the process and hope that this guidance simply helps even more people make the most of this amazing opportunity.
