The Round of Archangels is a humanitarian work that opens the way to transformation
At a time when all values are collapsing, when a growing imbalance is manifesting itself in the economy, health and family, more and more individuals are becoming aware of a great void in their lives and in the lives of humanity in general, of a lack of true and profound meaning.
Has humanity taken the wrong path?
The global ecological and humanitarian disaster also suggests that humanity has probably taken the wrong path and has not followed the laws of life and intelligence. She turned to the surface of things, abandoning all her existence and energy to what is mortal and forgetting the obvious: life is invisible. The immortal, the true being is what we do not see. By putting material life, external appearances, in the first place, to the detriment of inner life, conscience and soul, our civilization has cut itself off from the essential, from the current of true life. This unnatural culture has thus become the gateway to all the world’s imbalances.
Is there another way?
Whoever sees this clearly will understand that there are 2 orientations in life, 2 views, 2 distinct choices. One stops at death, at what does not last but undergoes the course of fashions and times; the other puts himself at the service of life, of what leads beings towards the full development of their gifts and qualities, towards eternity.
This second path is the one of great transformation
It is the philosopher’s stone that the alchemists have been looking for: the Round of the Archangels. It comes from the Essene tradition and is based on a sacred science and a divine covenant. Rising from the mist of ages, it reveals itself as the bridge of Light uniting the sky and the earth, the rainbow connecting the divine world to the world of men.
A new awareness
The world needs a real revolution in consciousness and life. Consciousness is fundamental, because it determines the level of perception of the senses, the vision, the state of being, the attitude, the behaviour, the energy… the Round of Archangels brings out a new state of consciousness, a new way of being in the world that balances and puts technology in its right place, without rejecting it.
A new education
After the awareness comes the need for education and training. When a man is well informed, educated, able to think, to form opinions, to cultivate a just discernment, an open mind, he can be trained to take charge of his life. This formation has a positive influence on its destiny, but also on that of the earth and of all humanity. The Archangel’s Round offers a training based on universal wisdom, which is the only true education. In a sense, it is a new educational mode, a new vision of the world, but in reality it is a question of going back to the basics, of rediscovering the great laws of life.
Everything shows us that each individual ends up having an influence on the earth. Awareness is a seed that must be planted and watered regularly. The seed contains life and the future, but it needs a framework, an environment to express its potential and flourish. This is why the Essenes structure themselves, organize themselves and take action through different works of Light, the main one being the Round of Archangels. Through this humanitarian work, they wish to provide a framework for the new consciousness to flourish and bear fruit.
A daily practice to take care of the divine
In the Round of Archangels, each Essenian carries an Angel to live and shine on earth, for the good of all beings. It is a sacred and impersonal service. This is how greatness enters his life and he gains strength and support in everything he does. It is no longer a question of asking God to take care of himself, but on the contrary, to take care of God by taking care of the Angels. It is truly the commitment of each and every one of us that will one day allow this universal work to touch all beings.
The Round of Archangels is the divine mystery revealed by God to Enoch
Originally, humanity lived in perfect unity with God. There came a time when some beings understood that they could create a world in their own image, outside the will of God. This part of original humanity, called “Adam” in the Old Testament, fell: it emerged from its state of unity with God and fell into a world of chaos, where divine order and love no longer reigned. It was then that a cry of despair rose from this fallen world to the humanity of Light, faithful to God’s will. Touched, it unites with the celestial hierarchies to create in the universe as a relief order, with the aim of allowing all fallen beings to have a way back to their original homeland. God-Men were sent to the earth to chart this path of liberation, through the Essene tradition.
Enoch is the first being to have celebrated the divine mystery on earth
Enoch was the first to be sent. That is why he has been honored in all traditions, under different names, as the father of the Children of Light tradition. In Egyptian, Enoch means Ankh: life. In Hebrew, Enoch is pronounced Anoki: I Am.
Enoch recognized his heavenly origin and renewed the sacred bond with God. God loved Enoch and showed him the Round of the Archangels: the way to create a body of immortality and regain divine memory through union with the Angels of Light. Enoch traced the circle of Light on earth, which opens the way of life for all beings. This circle of Light is none other than the round of the year and the 4 seasons, oriented towards an evolution of consciousness and a beautiful and prosperous life, in respect for the laws of life and the superior intelligence of the worlds.
Enoch then became “the Blessed One”, the hand of the Father who traced the divine plan for man’s return to his original homeland. He is the Son of Light who rekindles the flame of divine memory and makes God live among men.
Enoch is the father of the universal tradition
Enoch is the eternal principle of mastery, of the tradition of the masters. It has given rise to a line of guardians of this tradition, which has been manifested throughout history through the lineage of masters: the Pharaohs of Egypt, the Magi of Persia, the prophets of Israel, the Manicheans, the Templars, the Bogomiles, the Cathars… This tradition of Light is the thread of Ariadne which, from century to century, allows human beings to leave the labyrinth of existence and to rise from the fall. Not bearing the imprint of the human world but coming from the higher worlds, it is eternal.
Enoch was the first man to speak of the 4 Archangels, mentioned in his sacred book: “Then Michael and Raphael, Gabriel and Uriel looked down from the heavenly sanctuary on earth…” (Book of Enoch, chapter 9:1). The Archangels are the Fathers of the 4 elements, which constitute the entire universe. They are their divine intelligence, their quintessence. In this way, they maintain the cohesion of the cosmos and the great cycles of life that manifest themselves on earth throughout the 4 seasons.
Archangel Michael is the Father of fire and the face of God through the fall.
Archangel Raphael is the Father of the air and the face of God in the spring.
The Archangel Gabriel is the Father of water and the face of God through the winter.
The Archangel Uriel is the Father of the earth and the face of God through the summer.
The Archangels manifest themselves in the world of men as a divine superior intelligence, immutable laws, eternal wisdom.
Thanks to Enoch, a new path was opened for the healthy and harmonious evolution of men, but also of their little brothers and sisters animals, plants and minerals. To make this evolution possible, the 4 Archangels created the circle of the 4 seasons, which allows the seed buried in the ground (winter) to be freed from darkness to rise towards heaven (spring), offering the earth its most beautiful fruits (summer); then, to separate itself from all that is still imperfect (autumn) to return to the Father (death) and prepare its return as a new seed. Thus was established the law of reincarnation as a means of allowing man to evolve by gradually straightening himself from his fall, according to a very precise plan, until he found the way to the resurrection and immortality of his original soul.
The Round of Archangels is the alliance of Light reactivated in our time
The circle of Light reactivated
Inherited from the millenary tradition of the Essenes, in the lineage of Enoch, the circle of Light was once again traced and activated on earth in the autumn of 2003. In 2006, it took the official name of “Round of Archangels” and today constitutes the perfect structure to welcome the divine world into the earthly reality, into the sphere of human life.
Through the Round of Archangels, the sacred heritage of the Essenes has been resurrected, not in a dead and archaic way, but in total harmony with our time and its real needs.
The Essenes are connected to all the masters of the tradition of Light who have incarnated since Enoch. These have allowed the river of Tradition to pass through the ages without ever ceasing to flow and water the world with great universal wisdom.
Olivier Manitara awoke to the Light at the age of 12
A whole period of revolt and maturation, of preparation followed. Then, at the age of 18, he entered the assiduous study of the esoteric tradition, which led him, at the age of 22, to meet the ancient Essene initiation technique, which he practiced for 3 years. This is the same technique that the Buddha used when he sat in meditation under the tree of enlightenment or that Jesus practiced during his fast in the desert. This technique allows us to cross the illusions of the spiritual worlds to come into concrete contact with an Angel of God. This discipline allowed him to transform himself and open the first doors that led him to become a priest, a servant of God. At the age of 26, he began writing books and teaching another way of being in the world under the inspiration of an Angel, who has been guiding him since then.
In 2002, at the age of 38, the Angel introduced him to the third step, which consists in mastering the tempting serpent, the force of man’s world, in the body. For several years, Olivier Manitara has celebrated the feast of Saint Michael every year, in order to keep alive the tradition of the masters Rudolf Steiner, Peter Deunov and Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov, who had an alliance with this Archangel. He celebrated this feast by lighting a fire dedicated to Michael and saying prayers to him. After some time of practice, he decided to form a circle of priests and to impose discipline on himself. It was from that moment on that the superior worlds addressed him. They revealed to him that in accordance with the tradition of Enoch, the 4 seasons could be celebrated in the Light. They also showed him that spring, summer, autumn and winter were under the domination of Raphael, Ouriel, Michael and Gabriel respectively.
The first Archangel with whom he made contact was Michael who, in 2003, asked him to call his presence in the fire, which he did. He did the same for the other 3 Archangels, whom he called in dedicated temples, to the rhythm of the year’s round. That year, while he was guiding 6 friends in the initiation to the priesthood, which leads to the alliance with the Angel, he himself passed the initiation of the fourth step, which allows him to meet the world of the Archangels. He passed the tests and concluded the alliance with the 4 Archangels Michaël, Raphaël, Gabriel and Ouriel.
In 2005, he passed the initiation of the Sons of the Sun, as had masters Deunov and Aïvanhov before him. It was during this initiation that he really received the revelation of the Round of Archangels. Thus, following the celebration of Archangel Michael, he decided, with his students, to put into practice the homage to God through the study of the psalms that the Archangel had transmitted. During Raphael’s celebration in the spring of 2006, the engagement ceremony was offered for the first time to the Essenes, who could choose to wear an Angel: the Round of the Archangels was born. At that time, Olivier Manitara wrote: “Since 2003, Archangels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Ouriel have placed the seals of Light on the contemporary Essene school. During the spring 2006 equinox, they gave us the Round of Archangels as the promise of a new humanity, as the resurgence of the people of Light in all peoples, the Essene humanity. Our school, after years of effort and intensive work, has received the beginning of the great method that will renew divine life on earth and propose to all a new way of being in the world. This is a great victory of the Light; a magnificent work has been done. Through a ceremony and sacred writings, the 7 peoples of the Covenant of Light – minerals, plants, animals, men, angels, archangels and gods – were represented. In this structure of creation, the Gods must be welcomed and carried by the Archangels. These must be protected by the Angels, who themselves must be nourished by men through a virtue and offering of the flower of meditation. “These words contained a key to approaching the Angels: man must nourish the angelic beings through the offering of the flower of meditation.
The awakening of the flower of meditation represents the life that flows from the darkness of the body into the light of the spirit. It is the water lily that opens before the divine sun, the rebirth to the Light, the blossoming of consciousness towards higher worlds. To blossom is to glorify the life that the Father has placed in us and to invite all creation to live with us. The blossoming of the flower of meditation is one of the goals of the practice of the Round of Archangels: the awakening of consciousness and the flowering of the soul. All the wise men have proclaimed it in various forms: the essential in life is the soul. It was there before the physical body and it awaits us behind the veil of the mystery of the non-body that we more commonly call “death”.
Living with your soul is the ideal of the Essenes.
The Archangel’s Round is the round of the year that allows you to harmonize with the forces of nature
The succession of the 4 seasons according to a natural rhythm forms the round of the seasons. The sacred aspect of this round was known from ancient traditions, which celebrated the arrival of the new season with celebrations to worship and honour the spirits of nature. Today, the arrival of the seasons is still marked by celebrations. Unfortunately, these are no longer to honour but to consume: What gifts will we buy at Christmas? What Easter chocolates? What Halloween candy?
Not long ago, we could hear our grandparents talking about the importance of the seasons. There was a time to work the land and a time to sow, then, after the harvest came the time to rest the land. Now supermarkets have replaced gardens, taking us away and cutting us off from living nature and its rhythm.
Yet nature shows us that a superior intelligence is at work:
At the spring equinox, day and night are in perfect balance. This balance is found in the word “equinox”. Then the days get longer.
At the summer solstice, the day is longer than the night, but it gradually decreases…
At the autumnal equinox, there is again a balance between day and night. Then the nights are getting longer and longer.
At the winter solstice, the night is the longest night of the year and decreases until the equilibrium of the spring equinox is reached
This seasonal rhythm is found in the sun’s course during the day, where there are also 4 well-defined periods: the sun rises; it reaches its zenith; it decreases; and finally, it sets.
A day in human life is also related to this natural rhythm: in the morning, you wake up and wake up, like the sun; at noon, you are in great shape; in the evening, fatigue is felt; and when night falls, you go to bed and fall asleep.
The cycles of human life are closely linked to those of nature. Nature’s events are not external to us, they tell us about our inner nature and the changes that occur within us over the course of the year and our lives. It is on this wisdom that the Round of Archangels asks itself.
Your whole life is also similar to the course of the sun:
The morning of your life, you wake up like the rising sun: it is spring, birth and childhood. ● You grow up and reach maturity. The sun is in the middle of the afternoon: it’s summer and you’re having fun.
You are getting old, your strength is leaving you, you are approaching the setting sun: it is autumn, the time of judgment and the mirror of consciousness. What you have sown, you reap.
Finally, the sun is setting. Like him, you disappear: you enter the earth and are digested; it is winter, death.
Through the inner dimension of man and the very structure of his body, we still find these 4 intelligences at work. They are reflected through 4 centres of intelligence and activity:
Thinking, as an activity emanating from the sphere of the head, is linked to the intelligence of fire.
Feelings and perceptions of the senses, as activities emanating from the sphere of the heart and the 5 senses, are linked to the intelligence of the air.
Will and desire, as activities emanating from the sphere of the belly and sex, are linked to the intelligence of water.
The acts, as visible manifestations of the 3 invisible spheres of activity of man, are linked to the intelligence of the earth.
The Round of the Archangels is established according to the mysteries of the sun to honor the 4 Archangels, the 4 intelligences that govern the universe. Through the Round of Archangels, you enter into the recognition and homage to what is worthy and noble from all eternity in man and living nature.
Living in the Round of Archangels means becoming aware of this universal wheel and becoming active, creator of your destiny.
How to become active in the wheel of life?
Through the celebrations of the 4 seasons and the 4 Archangels, you will find a privileged contact with the forces of nature. This contact leads you to a rediscovery of your own inner nature, of your soul, of your divine being. Consciously or unconsciously, we all seek contact with nature and with our souls. In the year cycle, we can see all the secrets that unite man to perfection, to flowering.
The solstices and equinoxes are moments of celebration and union with the forces of nature, which awaken our souls. The Round of Archangels thus allows you to awaken the inner life of your soul and to resonate with the subtle forces and cosmic intelligences at work in nature.
The unconscious man does not perceive the wisdom, subtlety, beauty that manifest themselves through life and nature, but the conscious man educates himself to approach what is great with purity. The unconscious man sees water. The conscious man, the Essene, sees God coming in the water and the water leads him into the encounter with the mystery. Then, through the water, he perceives the great secrets of the universe and life. The purpose of the Round of Archangels is to offer the opportunity to all awakening beings to be able to live in harmony with the pure and sacred life of nature, in its subtle dimension.
Regular union with each element will develop in you qualities, virtues, values that will allow you to live stronger to work for the victory of the Light on earth. Thus, the Round of Archangels is not theory, it is life in action.
Christ is the man of Light, the universal man thought and willed by God at the origin of Creation. He is the archetype, the original image that every man carries within him like the seed of a rose carries within it the image of his future, if only it finds the strength to emerge from the underground darkness. This is the case of Christ in man.
The autumnal equinox is the time of harvest, when man reaps what he has sown. The Essenes gather to celebrate Archangel Michael, who carries the sword of decisions and the balance of consciousness. They offer the sacred fire the best of themselves and ask that the negative accumulated by lack of vigilance be removed from them so that the fire can come to bless their lives.
At the winter solstice, darkness is all powerful on the outside, but for the Essene, it is the privileged moment when he welcomes into his inner land the seed of Christ, the new one who comes into the intimacy of his soul to open the doors of a great and vast future. The Essenes then unite in friendship around the sweet presence of the Father of divine water, the Archangel Gabriel.
At the spring equinox, everything is resurrected in nature. It is then that the Essenes meet to celebrate the Archangel Raphael, the one who activates the mysteries of the resurrection and healing of humanity and nature through the divine breath of which he is the carrier. Raphael is the face of God in the air, the one who makes everything alive and calls all beings to life.
At the summer solstice, it is the absolute victory of light over the darkness of the night. The Essenes gather to celebrate the Uriel Archangel, who unites man with all the kingdoms of nature and the divine world. It is the feast of the earth that reveals all the wonders it contains in its perfect soul and intelligence.
Nature is the mirror of your inner life. Thanks to the soul-filled vision brought by the Essene tradition, you can see through the round of the year the reflection of your own life and all the magical processes through which you pass. All the secrets of life are given to you by living nature.
The Round of Archangels is the origin of all traditions and the universal religion that unites all currents
There are 4 fundamental intelligences that unite all of life into a great whole.
This knowledge of the Round of Archangels was well known to ancient traditions. Indeed, the peoples turned towards God have always gathered around this sacred knowledge of the circle, the square and the number 4. The Round of Archangels is the divine knowledge that gave birth to all religions. References to the universal symbols of the Round of Archangels – the circle, the wheel, the cross, the square, the number 4… – are present on all continents and in all the traditions of the world.
The Round of Archangels is the very structure of our world, which was created by these 4 universal forces. It is the sphinx of modern times, the temple in which the Children of Light meet to form on earth the circle of Light, the pure chalice that receives the revelation of the divine world. The Round of Archangels does not reject ancient traditions; on the contrary, it unites them. It is a continuity, a new branch of the tree of life, the tree of Tradition. The Essene religion is the latest of the great religions. The last one grows at the top of the tree of traditions, it raises the ancient Egyptian religion, Judaism, Christianity, Islam and all other religious currents.
The Egypt of the Pharaohs was the first great religion
It has left a light to all humanity and from it have come all the sacred currents of the tradition of Light. The Egyptian religion has touched the consciousness of man; it can thus be considered as the higher self of the universal man. The Pharaohs Sons of the Sun were beings in the service of the divine world. Then came Rameses II, who usurped Pharaoh’s power, leading Egypt to its ruin.
Judaism then appeared. Seeing that Egypt was lost, Moses, who was a Son of God, left the country with the priests. After the Exodus, this great master gave birth to the Jewish tradition. The Jews put a strong emphasis on the intellectual side, on study. They are scholars, sages, who study the Torah, the Kabbalah, the numbers, the sacred letters of their alphabet, the laws… Judaism is a religion of occultism that has touched thought in man; it can thus be considered as the head of the universal man.
Christianity then appeared on earth, through the intermediary of the master Jesus. Jesus was a truly special and exceptional being; he was with the Father. His words were alive in many worlds. Christianity has especially tried to develop qualities of heart, to bring values of kindness, generosity, compassion, love, devotion. He has thus touched more the feelings in man; he is the heart of the universal man.
Islam was then brought to men by the prophet Muhammad, who was a great master on earth. Muslims, whose name means “submissive to God”, are remarkable for their submission to His will. Their fidelity to religious rites has allowed Islam to touch the earth and anchor its strength. This religion can thus be seen as the will of the universal man.
Thus, in the assembly of their respective revelations, the ancient Egyptian religion, Judaism, Christianity and Islam allow us to see the entire structure of the universal man:
at the level of divine consciousness: the Egyptian religion, focused on the higher self;
at the level of thought: Judaism, oriented towards study;
at the level of feelings: Christianity, oriented towards devotion;
at the level of will: Islam, oriented towards rituals.
Today, we are at the stage where we must unify all parts of universal man, through concrete actions and the divine work, which unites all the Children of Light in all peoples. This is the role of the Essene religion, which comes to realize the outcome of the great work of Light. The Round of Archangels appeared to take up the torch of all religious currents and lead them towards fulfillment and unity. This unity is achieved in the great boat that is the Round of the Archangels, which honours and blesses all the masters of the past: the Pharaohs Son of the Sun, Krishna, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed….
The Round of Archangels is the universal religion that unites the best of all religions. But make no mistake, the Essenes are beings with strong and weak points like everyone else. They are humble and recognize that they still have much to learn. That is why they bow before everything greater than themselves: the Angels, the Archangels, the Gods, the Father and the Mother. By their tradition, the Essenes are therapists, healers. Today they are calling for healing of relationships and openness. Religions must stop their quarrels, learn from the past and unite to build a bright future for the earth. If religious are divided, it is the materialistic side of life that will take all the place, and all that is sacred, the side of the soul and the spirit, will be definitively lost.
The Essene Christian Church offers a teaching that unifies all philosophies, all religions. It does not ask people to convert, to deny their origins, their culture, their faith, but on the contrary, it promotes diversity, differences, which are a protection against the global standardization that threatens humanity today. It welcomes with open arms all those who seek God, the divine, the sacred, the Source, the higher intelligence and who wish to live a life filled with soul, in harmony with all beings.
The beginning of a new civilization
The Archangel’s Round and the Essene Nation are recognized as a charitable organization by the Canadian government. To support this grandiose work is to participate in restoring the tradition of Light on Earth. The Round of Archangels marks the beginning of a new civilization. As the present world continues to empty itself of its primordial essence, to enter into excessive technology and omnipresent dehumanization, to increase the fear and desecration of nature, a new people appears, similar to a new tree in the garden of the world: the people of Essenia. This new tree is that of the Essene Nation, which, protected by the angelic sky of the Round of Archangels and rooted in the sacred ground of the Essene Villages, offers humanity the fruits of a new life.
The Round of Archangels is not a utopia, a distant and ethereal dream that conceals the current state of the world. Rather, it is the balm of healing for all beings, the song of dawn that proclaims that a new day appears on earth. She said to the one who has ears to hear: “Wake up, take your life in hand and choose to whom your existence, your heart, your soul belong. »
