Angel Moroni’s instructions for entering The Terrestrial World

Angel Moroni’s Instructions
How to make a personal ceremony at the Altar-to seek the presence of Lord-and enter the Terrestrial World… This is only one of my personal interpretations there are as many as the stars, it’s a pattern, to use. The pattern is the same.  It’s interpretation is different for everyone, who walks upon the way…cj

Set apart everyday to be instructed by your kindred dead-for they are not dead at all…and they do walk upon the way. When our hearts turn to them, our Father and Mother Ancestors…Their hearts turn to us…and they do walk and talk with us, unto distant generations.

They have much to teach us…Cleave unto this wisdom and make application of it…Whatever they are teaching and instructing us we need to use it, and do it, in our lives, and apply this knowledge to our spiritual growth…because our kindred dead will help prepare us to stand in the presence of our Creator Peacemaker.

1. Prepare your Sacred Prayer Bundle-This bundle represents the coat of skins placed upon Adam and Eve by the Lord…The possessor of this bundle is signifying to the Lord that they have been washed and anointed…for this is the token for the Law of the Gospel…and you have entered into covenant with the Lord to live it…If there is no token or earnst, then there is no covenant…The sign is made by wearing your Sacred Garment…and also by using your bundle in ceremony with the Lord…

Within the your Sacred Prayer Bundle is found- The markings of the Sacred Garment-and the four Sacred Covenants and Laws…and also the markings of the veil that was placed over our minds…and the cherubim (The four sacred directions)that guard The Way…back to the presence of the Lord…and our Heavenly Parents…It is the preparation to be able to stand in His presence…

The Law of the Gospel is also the Eternal Round-Medicine Wheel…The four laws and covenants form a square within the wheel-The four sacred directions…It is marked on the sacred garment above the right knee. Signifying every knee shall bow unto the Lord this is how we begin our ceremony in a place of solitude…On our knees in prayer…

2. And if we wish to go full measure on The Way, that is to stand in the presence of Peacemaker, even He who made this life possible…But to fully prepare ourselves to receive this great blessing, we need to work diligently upon The Way, having our kindred instruct us… to find access to The Way, through the Power of the Holy Ghost…
The Law of Obedience-marked on the right breast-Arm to Square…Telestial World…

3. Make a ceremony- Pray to focus your mind and thinking… Invite the Holy Ghost to be your companion, and guide you to The Way…Request a vision from The Holy Ghost…

4. Lay down your pallet Which is a Square…in a solitary place…prepare a resting place…an abode…Doing all prayerfully from the East to the West

5. Place your bundle in the center…
The Law of Sacrifice-marked on the right breast-Arm to Square…Telestial World…
Sit on the East-This is the altar=your prayers are the sacrifice upon the altar…When you open your bundle it is to pray and walk upon The Way.(Your Sacred Prayer bundle should contain a square ground covering)…

The Law of Chastity-marked on the left breast-the compass-Terrestrial World…

6. Now you are being presented in The Terrestrial World in the presence of God Angels and these witnesses…

7. Open your bundle to celebrate the good things of the Earth, but mostly to pray and walk upon The Way…The Lord taught Adam and Eve the Law of Chastity…Moroni’s prayer bundle of soft white leather, represented how the Lord prepares us to be in His presence-bleached out-whitened, softened, and prepared…Then we do stand before the Creator of All Things…

8. When the bundle is opened it is done in all reverence, within are found articles, wrapped in leather and in a red cloth…

9. When you open your bundle, Yea Beseech The Holy Ghost in prayer… (beseech means ask in urnest, urgent request, implore), and sing a song, hymnal…(Your Sacred Prayer bundle should contain a Hymn to sing to invite The Holy Ghost to lead in your ceremony)…

10. Lay the red cloth out from the East to the West…(Your Sacred Prayer bundle should contain a square piece of red cloth-symbolizing the Lord’s Atonement-and our covenants to Him)…

The Square-The covenants

11. Moroni’s square pipe bowl…The Lord is called The Pipe…it is square to remind us of raising our arm to the square, promising the Lord to obey these Laws of Heaven. And these are the articles which I place in the prayer bundle. Behold, I place the bowl of a pipe which I have made with my own hands, as also the stem of the pipe, And the bowl of the pipe is made such that it contains a square, and this represents the straightness of the way which leads unto the Peacemaker. It is the sign of the square. And the bowl of the pipe is made of stone, even from among the first created, and it is carved of my own hand. And when I take it out, I do lay it upon its covering. And the stem of my pipe is straight and strong (Your Sacred Prayer Bundle should contain something square, something straight, and a stone…To remind you of your covenants, and the creation, and the straight and narrow path that leads to the Lords Presence)…

12. The stem is made of a wood that is known by the healers of Mentinah to give a berry, the seed of which is useful in strengthening the heart. Yea, and this tree does bear thorns which are like, it is said, unto the crown which the Peacemaker bore upon His head in the day that He was taken by the world and subjected unto death. (Your Sacred Prayer Bundle should contain a thorny and straight tree branch)…It is also said to represent the pointer of the Liahona which our fathers Lehi and Nephi took with them into the wilderness. Therefore, it is the sign of the compass, and it is this wood that I used to fashion the stem of my pipe. (Your Sacred Prayer Bundle could contain something similar to a compass)…place your articles upon your red cloth.

The Law of Consecration-marked on the navel-Health

Your Heart and Contrite Spirit-and all that you are and have, belong to the Lord…Consecration… The Patriarchal Grip-sign of the Healer…
Use an Article to signify that I place my heart upon that road or that path which leads unto Him and that I do dedicate…

13. My life and my sacrifice unto Him, even as He did dedicate His life and His sacrifice unto me.

14. And I also have a multicolored shell that is the size of my hand which I use as my bowl of incense. And the use of this bowl is described in another place. The multicolored shell signifies my thanks for the multitude of blessings for which I do offer up my oblation and my sacrifice. (Your Sacred Prayer Bundle should contain a shell and incense)…

15. Yea, for the Peacemaker speaks peace unto my soul and were it not for this peace, I know not that I could stand the length of the day. For, the sun looks down upon all my transgressions and my sins, and if the sun may see me all the day long, then why not my God?

And I know not that I could live with the agony of my deeds were it not for the peace which my Lord does speak unto my soul. And this peace cannot be described in one color. For, it is not the rising or setting of the sun, but it is much more.

And it is not encompassed by all the learning of the wise men, but it is much more. And it cannot be encompassed by the whole earth, for it is too great. And it cannot be fathomed, for it is as deep as a soul.

Wherefore, I describe this peace in the color of the shell, which is all colors at once, and yet all colors singly.(Your Sacred Prayer Bundle could contain something to represent the sun-The Son)…  And when I take out the bowl of incense, I do place it upon its own kirlum-leather skin upon the bundle.

16. And I do keep sacred essences within the bundle for use as oblations. And they are kept within their own Kirlum-leather skin and are placed thereon upon the bundle. And these essences contain sacred and healing herbs and also the blood of healing of significant trees. And these are used as the smoke of incense when I open the prayer bundle. (Your Sacred Prayer Bundle should contain healing herbs and oils, and consecrated olive oil)…

17. And also within the bundle I keep a cord of green with which I do gird myself (sign of the healer), and a shawl of many colors with which I do cover myself, when I open the prayer bundle.(Your Sacred Prayer Bundle should contain a green cord and prayer shawl)

And I do open the prayer bundle in a sacred manner, even with much song and mighty prayer. And I take of the precious essences and I do purify all the articles of the bundle, as also myself, with a sweet and purifying odor. And this does signify how sweet and purifying is my walk and my talk with the Peacemaker, my Lord.

And when I have made a song of thanksgiving and a purifying ordinance, I take up the bowl of the pipe and I unite it with the stem of the pipe. And this signifies that I do unify my soul with the Peacemaker and that I do aspire to be sealed up His. And I do fill the bowl of the pipe with sacred herb and I make a ceremony of Sacred Breath. And this is the manner of the ceremony:

Because I do desire that the Great and Heavenly Father might be with me, I do raise the pipe in offering to the heavens and I sing for the guidance of the Holy Ghost. And, because I do desire that the Great and Heavenly Mother might be with me…

18. I do raise the pipe in offering and touch it to the bundle and I sing for the guidance of the Holy Ghost.

And I do raise the pipe in offering toward the West and pray for all the good things of the earth and all wisdom in the application of them. And I do sing for the guidance of the Holy Ghost.

And I do raise the pipe in offering toward the North and pray for the presence of Heavenly Beings in my life.

And I do sing for the guidance of the Holy Ghost. And I do raise the pipe in offering toward the East and pray for the visitation of my kindred dead and for the Gifts of the Spirit.

And I do sing for the guidance of the Holy Ghost. And I do raise the pipe in offering toward the South and I pray for the strength and the will to repent of my deeds.

And I do sing for the guidance of the Holy Ghost.

19. (This part of the ceremony you could use your incense and shell and you need to sing your Hymn for The Holy Ghost …Thanksgiving song) And I do touch the bowl of the pipe to my own heart and describe a circle with the pipe in offering.

This I do in order that I might remind myself of the sacred covenant I have made to my people that we may be of one heart and one mind and have all things in common.

(This is the sacred medicine wheel or circle of eternity…one eternal round)…

20. Then I do smoke the sacred herb and blow the smoke in the four directions. And behold, it is in this sacred breath that I do cease to be harrowed up by the past, and I find peace enough to go upon the Way. For in thanksgiving only, am I able to be still and know God.

21. Now, this has also become a pattern with those who do not use the Sacred Pipe.. The Bowl of Incense instead, as is described in the archives. And this is the preference of most women among the Nemenhah of Mentinah.

And the men and women of the Nemenhah do use those ceremonies in which the use of sacred and healing smoke is employed. This kind of purification does also help the mind and the body find peace.

And they also use ordinances and ceremonies which do utilize the essences of plants, even the pure essences of them, and this does have effect upon the body and the spirit in many ways beneficial to the attaining of that state of mind necessary to walk upon the Way.

22. And behold, the Nemenhah do also fast often with their families. And this they do not in the sight of others, but they do it secretly. And they do not communicate their fasting to others, to be seen of them, but they do it often and in private. And also the ordinances of the High Place do cause a change in the character and countenances of the people.

For, in them they are introduced into the Terrestrial World…cj
