The Science of the Spoken Word: Rhythm, Tone, Speed, Visualization, Songs and Mantras

27 Nov

Throat Chakra

The Science of the Spoken Word predominantly uses the throat chakra.  This chakra is one of the focal points of the emotional body. Its counterpoint is the solar plexus. Through the Science of the Spoken Word, students learn to master the water element, energy in motion, by releasing a steady, controlled stream of energy for specific creative purposes.

Control comes in a number of ways:

Rhythm

The bodies of decrees are usually written like poems, with a particular inner meter or rhythm that varies per decree. Decreers closely follow this rhythm, which becomes an ascended master imprint in the stream of energy released via the throat chakra.

Tone and Speed

Decrees may be given like spoken prayers, i.e. with emphasis on each word. This is usually how they are learned by the beginner, and how a decree is started in a decree session. At this initial level, heart contact is made and the image evoked by the decree is tuned into.

From this spoken stage, the decree begins to speed up as more repetitions are given. Soon, the decree begins to sound like a chant. As the speed increases, the tone tends to climb up the musical scale. At top speed, words are hardly discernible, but the rhythmic pulse is clearly overlaid over the chant. Sometimes, delicate overtones are heard. When decreers closely follow the decree leaders, a well-given decree becomes a thing of remarkable beauty.

Visualization

Though primarily working through the emotional body (throat chakra) and the heart chakra (pouring out of devotion to the masters in decrees), decrees are not complete without visualization. Decrees have built-in images that are intended to keep the student’s concentration focused on the task at hand. For instance, in the Michael decree above, the key images are a sword of blue flame, a blue banner, blue lightning, legions of blue-ray angels, and a blue armor.

Songs

Within the tool kit of the Science of the Spoken Word, songs represent the devotional aspect. Songs open the way for deep soul connections with the ascended hosts and with one’s higher self. They nurture the development of the heart.

Songs in The Summit Lighthouse range from gentle and meditative to strong, powerful and motivational. They make use of the music and rhythms from east and west.

Mantras

Like songs, mantras represent the devotional aspect of the Science of the Spoken Word.  Mrs. Prophet explained:

So when we sing these mantras, we’re not just singing songs; they are the means of giving devotion to God.
What I would like to point out is that the teaching of Hinduism is that the mantra is God and God is the mantra. When you recite a mantra you are putting sound into cups of light that are words. And these words, when you understand them and receive them, establish the vibration of God in your temple. This body is either a hollowed-out cage in which you are a prisoner or it is that great temple of light that you sweep clean, that you dedicate to God, where God may enter daily.[1]

The Science of the Spoken Word: Advanced Prayer

26 Nov

Advanced Prayer

The Science of the Spoken Word is the flagship spiritual practice taught by the masters via The Summit Lighthouse. It is an ancient science, practiced in the temples of Lemuria and Atlantis as well as in religious and mystery school traditions.

The Science of the Spoken Word could be considered the “big sister” of prayer. Prayer is a form of supplication to the Godhead. Practitioners of the Science of the Spoken Word primarily use an advanced form of prayer called “decrees.” A definition of “decree”:

Decree (n.): a foreordaining will, an edict or fiat, a foreordaining of events. To decree (vb.): to decide, to declare, to command or enjoin; to determine or order; to ordain.
The decree is the most powerful of all applications to the Godhead. It is the command of the sona or daughter of God made in the name of the I AM Presence and the Christ for the will of the Almighty to come into manifestation as above, so below. It is the means whereby the kingdom of God becomes a reality here and now through the power of the spoken Word. It may be short or long and usually is marked by a formal preamble and a closing, or acceptance.[1]

Decrees come in many types and forms. There are decrees for each of the seven rays, the secret rays and the ruby ray. Decree content ranges from making contact with one’s divine self to invoking God’s will in politics, ecology, education and the economy. A specific subset is that of judgment decrees, as explained in the previous unit.

Many decrees were dictated by the ascended hosts, directly to the messengers or in dictations. In those types of decrees, the master places certain thought patterns and keys to his causal body in the decree that invoke a response from him when it is given by a student.

Following the preamble of a decree, students pause to make personal spoken calls to the master or masters to whom the decree is addressed. These calls, like the decree itself, are given in the name of the student’s I AM Presence and Christ Self, with a request to adjust the directives given by the students to the will of God. This step assures that decreeing does not become karma-making by trying to impose one’s human will on specific situations.

When properly practiced, this science of decreeing truly makes the student an effective co-worker of the Great White Brotherhood.

Multiplication Factors

Decrees are usually given in sets of three. The repetition intensifies and amplifies the action. In decree sessions, decrees are often given 36, 40 or even 144 times to make maximum use of this strengthening of the sound wave that is being created.

Decrees may be given by oneself or in a group. In a group setting, the power of decrees is squared by the number of people present. A decree given by one person has the power of one. Given by nine people, it has the power of 81.

The ascended masters have released a number of dispensations that further multiply the effect of decrees. For instance, every decree uttered is automatically multiplied by the ascended hosts by the power of 10,000 times 10,000. This means that one decree spoken once by a devotee may benefit one hundred million people.

Specific masters have offered other dispensations. For instance, the Ascended Master Omri Tas has committed to multiplying every recitation of 15 minutes of solid violet flame decrees by the power of ten.

These multiplication factors explain why, though student numbers are relatively small compared to the world population, the ascended masters can bring about tremendous change through their students’ practice of this science.

Saint Germain on Practical Alchemy With the Violet Flame

24 Nov

viole flame earth1

 

“When the subject of creation is given more than ordinary consideration, man begins to realize that his own destiny lies as a gift in his hands.  He has always looked to God for assistance, and God has always looked to man that he might convey to him every good gift and all the support which man could reasonbly receive and acknowledge.  Unfortunately, even in those periods of their most advanced meditations, mankind have seldom glimpsed the necessary cosmic pattern of what they are and what they shall be.

The secrets of alchemy are always to be found in the domain of creation.  If man has not the power to create, he is not truly free.  Therefore, the stream of energy that God is giving to him in ceaseless descent must needs be channeled into matrices of creative desire patterned after the divine will; but when misqualified, these energies form links of the chain that binds him.

Saint Germain large001

 

Our first step, then, is to abort and to transmute the negatively qualified substance in the world of every would-be alchemist.  The power of the violet transmuting flame, as an agent of Holy Spirit, can be called forth from God for purification of man’s world.  It should be noted however, that this power is seldom recognized until the alchemist has invoked the flame for a considerable period of time.  But, practice as he will, his use of the flame will not be enough to transform his world unless the correct scientific attitude is maintained.  The alchemist who insists on exalting his own human will and ego in contradistinction to the Divine Will and Ego cannot possibly receive the great gifts which the Spirit seeks to convey.”

Not my will, not my will, not my will but thine be done!

“I know that many people are reluctant to release themselves completely into the hands of God.  They are willing to go part of the way, and they gingerly step forward when the higher will seems to flatter their own; but because they have not let go of the human will, they find in the end that their efforts are unrewarded.  Man cannot bargain with God.  Nevertheless, Cosmos is far more ready to give every good and perfect gift to man than man is ready to receive it.  The problem, then, lies not in the diver himself, who must be willing to acknowledge the presence of the treasures of heaven in the cosmic depths–treasures that heaven intends man not only to discover but also to possess.

By incorrect attitudes, men have kept themselves from the kingdom of heaven.  They have sought through magic and unfortunately, even through witchcraft to win for themselves that which could be obtained on a permanent basis only by willing submission to the will of God, to his intents and his purpose.

The practicality of God must not be employed as a weapon to destroy the mystical beauties of the Spirit. On the contrary, it must be used to draw the divine mystery to the focal point of individual manifestation.  As the flesh came forth and was animated by the Spirit, so practicality must come forth and be animated by the creative purposes of God.  Then God will take man by the hand and lead him through the realm of perfect order to a place where man will perceive that the world and all things in it were originally created according  to a perfect cosmic pattern.

Here he will be shown that each individual was intended to manifest a specific facet of the divine intent and that each facet of the grand design was created to complement the other and to produce thereby the miracle beauty of an everlasting kingdom, worlds without end. How can men imagine that the Mind that created man in all of his wondrous parts–the universe, the stars, the suns, the spiritual realms–would be so lacking in foresight as to fail to provide a way of escape for those who might wander from the cosmic blueprint?  Did not his practicality bestow upon man the fullness of the divine conveyance expressed in the command ‘Take dominion over the earth’?  Man, then, was and is learning how to master his environment by cosmic wisdom united with his own natural intelligence.”

The key, then, to the practice of advanced spiritual alchemy lies in the alchemist’s understanding of the purposes of God through the Brotherhood and in his consciously yoking himself together with those who are pledged by word and deed to the fulfillment of those purposes.

Why Should We Decree?

16 Nov

spokenword001

 

The reason we can call to God and he will answer is because we are connected to him.  We are his sons and daughters.  We have a direct relationship to God and he has placed a portion of himself in us.  The statement “Perfect love casts out fear” is true because it can be proven scientifically in demonstration of cosmic law.  Although it is difficult for mankind, cast in the mold of the human consciousness, to sense the full perfection of God that is within, it is through the understanding of perfect love that each man and woman can come to the place where love is realized as the essence of Selfhood.

The perfect love of which I speak is the love that emanates from the Father-Mother God, from the very core of true being.  And it is this love which, when invoked through divine decree by the children of God, will dissolve and consume on contact all fear and doubt, anxiety and frustration, and sense of aloneness which mankind has evolved through the consciousness of separation from the Source of life.

There is a veil that separates a man from his God.  It is the energy veil that is a forcefield of mortal thought and feeling which mankind weave out of their own discord.  This veil has become a wall of partition between the evolving soul consciousness of man and the Great God Flame that focuses the life energy of the Real Self within the heart.

Thus man has barricaded himself from the mercy seat and the ark of testimony of his own Christ-identity.  And this energy veil has for centuries effectively deprived him of truth of his own being and of the Presence of God.  Therefore it is man himself who must rend the veil of his own mortal consciousness–of which he alone is the author–ere the wisdom of the law can be imparted.

As we approach, then, the subject of fear and its overcoming through the invocation of the sacred fire that blazes on the altar of the Holy of Holies of man’s being, we must understand that the energies of which the veil is composed–whether they appear to be pride, hardness of heart, prejudice, hatred, or human gluttony and greed–can be reduced to one common denominator, which is fear.  Fear is the anxiety and the uncertainty that emerges from deep within the recesses of the human consciousness the moment that it separates itself from God.  Out of this fear there comes forth every dark form, every mania, every evil influence to which we are heir.

Let those who would learn God-truth place their own ideas temporarily aside for a moment as Lord Maitreya expounds to those willing to become as little children for the purpose of receiving this instruction upon the importance of employing in the present-day methods of dynamic decreeing. Let those who will, assume the karmic responsibility of teaching men that dynamic decree is unnecessary.  It is true for a limited few who, by reason of certain spiritual facilities, do not require as much transmutation as others.  Yet until they balance 51-100 percent of their karma–until their debts to life are fully paid–they can certainly benefit by the giving of decrees: for decrees which invoke the violet flame are a means of balancing karma–of invoking the sacred fire until every jot and tittle of the law of karma is fulfilled.

It is true that some may fine that dynamic decreeing may disturb them at first, simply because they have already obtained a habit pattern of great quietness in their communion with God.  However, even these, if they desire to do so, can determine to set aside all other conditions and concerns and obtain from properly directed decrees a benefit without equal.

Breathe of Life

“May a mantle of the adoring grace of God descend upon your hearts with a gentleness of rain from heaven.  Upon the stage before I perceive a vast circular pool.  Surrounding this pool of lilies are the beautiful verdant green leaves, the pads of lilies cupped and cupping the pure white flame of cosmic purity.  This pool shines now with an azure blue. Resplendent and glorious is this pool.  At first, there is a murmuring of the sacred breath rippling gently upon the waters, and then all is still.”

“This pool, symbolical of your own blessed consciousness, is now still; and reflected on the surface you will perceive first the luminescent orb of the moon, polarizing the emotional body of mankind.  And men are stirred because they recognize within their feeling world a sense of adoration for the beauty and loveliness even of the reflected light.  Now the scene changes and the moon passes across the heavens in its direct course until, sinking beneath the horizon, it is no longer visible in the reflecting pool.”

“Myriad stars shine there and they, too are reflected–magnificent orbs of light from afar.  These are representative of Cosmic Beings and of the Ascended Masters’ consciousness.  These too, as Cosmos’ secret rays, are reflected and mirrored in the consciousness of mankind.  Now there comes a mighty descending wind from on high.   All seems turbulent for a moment, for there is a stirring to the very depth of the pool of consciousness.  And then once again a voice speaks, ‘Peace be still.'”

Now all is silent. In an attitude of expectancy and waiting, children of the Light slowly behold the dawn of Being, a luminous radiance of the rising Sun.  It is the Sun of their own Divine Being.  The dawn moves toward noontime and from the zenith of the heavens there descends a glow of effulgent power which in its burning majesty sweeps into the waiting, receptive consciousness of the individual the full-blown momentum of Divinity–the Sun of his own God-free being.”

“In this allegory which I am bringing to you, this splendid luminous orb is symbolical of the highest consciousness.  For the consciousness of the individual is the doorway through which comes all experience, both material (natural) as well as spiritual.”  Your consciousness, beloved ones, functions not only as a surface mirror, reflecting that which is poured into it from everyday living, but also as a sea that has depth.  And there is mirrored in the internal depths of consciousness the wonders of God which have not yet been recognized by the surface mind of man.”

“Know, then, that in probing the laws of the universe–the laws of Universal Love and the laws of the Holy Spirit–you must be able to recognize not only the surface musings of the mind, but also the very depth of conscious being.  And you must pray for your consciousness to be expanded so that you may begin today to perceive the depths of your own being and not that of another.  For all Life is one, and it is in the splendor of knowing the oneness of Life through the doorway of self-illumination that the soul comes to understand the all–knowing depth of the Holy Spirit.”

“It is the sacred wind of the Holy Spirit which moves across the reflecting pond of being and sweeps away the pseudo images of the emotional impacts of life amplified by the moon.  And so in the allegory of the day and the night, man perceives that most of life which manifest here upon this blessed planet is a mere reflection of the real and is not the real at all.  For the moon but reflects the light of the sun towards earth and is qualified by the consciousness of those who behold it from various aspects of life, of relativity.”

“God in his omnipresence enfold thee now one and all in a mantle of the Holy Spirit until, in the splendor of His eternal shining, you, too are one as I AM with the Person of the Holy Spirit in action–free from all vestiges of outer world shadow.”

“Beloved hearts, how do we begin?  How do we maintain that God-Control that allows for the rhythm of God to restore the balance before the human reaction–out of fear or anger or that teetering/tottering off balance? Beloved hearts, the components are there in the dictations, the decree book, Keepers of the Flame lessons.  But , as it always is, the more vast the compendium of knowledge, the greater the requirement of the teacher to organize.  Thus, understand: sometimes when you suddenly feel a disturbance–you are taken aback, you have a shock or a sudden reaction to the actions of injustice of another–one of the reasons you momentarily lose your balance is because the normal flow of the aura has been distributed, as though you would suddenly agitate the waters.”

“Now, your aura is your sanctuary, and it is the sanctity of your God flame.  Thus, before answering the demands of the carnal mind–the questioning, the praying for favors, or whatever–reestablish yourself.  Speak quietly, softly, and slowly.  For in this way you will not engage into yourself the anger, the impetuosity, the upsetness of anyone around you. You speak from the seat f the heart, the point of the Buddha.  You speak loud enough, in the sense of being strong and firm, so that the breath and the voice are not sinking like a shrinking violet of fear.  You speak strong enough and firm enough and peaceful enough and powerful enough so that God may use your voice to still your own aura and the agitation or the fear or the excitement of another.”

“Be the calm presence in a vortex of calamity and activity, beloved hearts, and learn the way of power, the immense power of peace itself.  Realize that in a situation of upsetness it is necessary to take some deep breaths.  For in the presence of anxiety, the heart begins to palpitate and people begin to breathe in a short-breath manner, thus adding to the absence of control.  You take a deep breath, you release it, you go to the heart, and you give no instantaneous answers, yes or no–no instantaneous reactions or solutions–but quietly turn within.”

You see, beloved ones, the test are flying full and sure.  We want you to experience the sense of mastery, of dominion, the enormous pleasure of that driving force of irritation, and conquered and risen above every foible of the senses directed against your heart.  They would steal your life.  They would take the flow of love between us.  They would break the bond by any form of anger or outrage.  And they will steal from you your sense of worthiness, your sense of the mantle of being a disciple of Sanat Kumara.  When they can destroy your dignity and you begin to feel like a moth, then you will also behave like one.  And till you regain your self-identity, I must pause and wait again, wondering just how long you will flit around the bulb of these sepent ones who have beguiled you into their auras momentarily.”

Thus, beloved hearts, the soft answer turneth away wrath.  If someone is speaking to you in a loud and high-pitched manner, adjust the tone and answer with the God-command.  Answer with helpfulness.  Try to solve the problem.  Try to show the best side of things.  Provide emergency care when needed.  Keep your wits about you.  And don’t enter the vortex of another;s anxiety, else you will become confused.  Remember that anything that seeks to taunt you from the seat of the Buddha in the secret chamber of the heart must be noted as the enemy–not the person necessarily, for it is often a loved one, but the force attempting to use that one.  Thus it is your challenge to liberate that one as well as yourself from the human nonsense of the moment.   May you pass every test!”
