Keep light natural or low. At night, dim light, such as starlight,
moonlight, and candlelight or firelight allow the body to produce
melatonin, which is an important body chemical for ecstatic dancing.
Bright artificial light inhibits the production of melatonin.
Melatonin is necessary for youth and for deep restful sleep.
Dancing alone is as sacred as dancing in a group.
Both are extremely powerful for attracting Heaven on Earth.
If you are dancing in a group, allow everyone to dance,
including children and old people. Those who are disabled
dance in whatever way they can, even if it is only
in their imaginations, and by tapping a finger or swaying their heads.

Group dancing in a circle is very powerful.
Steps to the dance and body movements are unique to each person,
as they find their own alignment with Universal Rhythms.
Dancing with eyes closed much of the time is helpful
to some people in order to maintain inner focus.
In the time of Heaven on Earth, each community or tribe
has a permanent dance circle in a beautiful place.
A fire burning in the middle of the circle helps
the optic nerve stimulate the pineal, pituitary,
and hypothalamus with the flickering firelight.
If your community builds a covered space for ecstatic dancing,
make it round with a dome or pyramid roof with a skylight to
let in the natural moonlight. If the roof is a pyramid, be
sure to align it to true north. Use natural earth, stone
or wood for floors, or natural fiber rugs, and
keep everything as beautiful as possible.
Art, symbols, gently billowing cloths, and plants
reflect higher qualities; as it is written,
"As above, so below".
If you are dancing in a square or rectangular space,
transform it into a circle as much as possible with hanging cloth,
pillows, screens, furniture, or plants, or do it in your imagination.
The circle anchors powerful healing energy.
The sound of flowing water is magical.

The key to ecstatic dance is flowing emotion
in attunement to feelings of Divine Virtues.
This stage of the moon cycle is one of reaping what one has
sown during the first two weeks, so flowing feelings of gratitude, resting,
accomplishment, security, satisfaction, and happiness are natural.
Powerful ecstatic flowing emotions of gratitude and happiness generated
during the dance strongly attract ecstatic conditions into the Earth realm.

In any place, at any time, it is possible to create
in your imagination the seashore with crashing surf,
calling birds and blissful wind; deep in the forest
with singing bugs, hooting owls, and laughing rivers;
a mystical cave overlooking the desert with flickering firelight;
or a beautiful round temple filled with objects and symbols of divine perfection.
When you meditate on the divine virtues associated with the letters of our name,
and call upon us, the following is gained:
We spiritualize matter, and with our aid and instruction
it is possible to dynamize thoughts and feelings
to take on a life of their own.
We help seekers apply mystic rituals
and practices to gain mastery over the elements,
in order to gain perfect control over other people
and evoke clairvoyance and the gift of prophecy
for the highest good of all concerned.
We inspire the children of God to be in tune with
wisdom of the most profound truths, coming through
magical exercises, dance, and ritual.
...and to release all imperfection in being, desire,
thought, feeling, and form.
Practical application of rhythm
removes obscurity and awakens clarity.
These dances of ecstasy awaken intense cosmic love,
and intuition which taps into the original rhythms of life.’
