Spiritual Resurrection

22 Jun
  • What is the resurrection?
  • Would it be possible to end physical death?
  • What about physical healing?
  • What is the first thing you seek to change?
  • What is the ascension?
  • What does karma have to do with it?

Mrs. Prophet, speaks about about the resurrection.

The resurrection proves Saint Paul’s teaching that the last enemy to be overcome is death. The reality of it is that there is no death, but we have to prove that there is no death.

The resurrection is a resurgence of God’s energy through our being, through our chakras. It was the drawing forth of the energies of the resurrection from the I AM Presence and from the base-of-the-spine chakra that enabled Jesus to restore life to his temple. By the meditation of his soul upon the Oversoul, or the Higher Self, he overshadowed his body until he restored that body to life.

Now, we begin our resurrection by the restoration of consciousness, of joy, of happiness, of love, of truth. And we keep on increasing and accelerating God’s consciousness within us until the ultimate victory over death is a natural conclusion of our soul’s quest on the Path and of our soul’s reunion with God.

Resurrection Manta

Continuing, then, with El Morya’s “Heart, Head and Hand Decrees,” we have a mantra for the resurrection—and it can be used every day. As we give this mantra we can say, “I am being resurrected every day! I am overcoming death every day!”

Resurrection I AM affirmationI AM the flame of resurrection
Blazing God’s pure light through me.
Now I AM raising every atom,
From every shadow I AM free.

I AM the light of God’s full Presence,
I AM living ever free.
Now the flame of life eternal
Rises up to victory.

We accompany this mantra with the visualization of white light coming through us, rising through us as a white fire pulsating from beneath our feet, through our consciousness and chakras. It is an energy field that can restore us from sickness to health, from depression to wholeness, from anxiety to joy.

Mantras for Transmuting Karma

There is an alchemy in this mantra and in all mantras whereby through the Science of the Spoken Word, as in no other form of meditation, misuses of God’s energy are transmuted. This process of transmutation means that each time we give mantras that contain the name of God, I AM, we are actually balancing negative karma.

Karma is simply the substance of God’s energy that we have qualified either correctly or incorrectly. There is good karma and bad karma, positive karma and negative karma. Our goal is to re-qualify with light the energy that we have misqualified with darkness. This misqualified energy is stored in a forcefield comparable to the subconscious. When we give these mantras, increments of that energy are returned to the causal body, or the spheres of consciousness that surround the I AM Presence.

So mantras are not given simply for the alteration of a state of consciousness, although they do accomplish this. More importantly, they are always involved in the forgiveness of sin and the balancing of karma. Balancing karma means paying the debt for our misuses of God’s light, energy and consciousness.

We give the mantra on the resurrection to remove the consciousness of death. More than we realize, we are burdened by the energies of death on a day-to-day basis. Fear is the beginning of death. Doubt in oneself is the beginning of death. The condemnation or the belittlement of the self is the murdering of the self and its potential to be free. Freedom comes through this resurrection flame.

Are you saying it would be possible to end physical death?

The termination of death begins in consciousness. Since death is not real, what we see as death is simply the laying down of the body temple by the soul, who then journeys to other planes of consciousness, or other mansions in the Father’s house.

Jesus said: “In my Father’s house are many mansions. If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you… that where I am, ye may be also.” The mansions are planes of consciousness, and there are many planes of consciousness. The soul journeys to these planes both after the transition called death and during sleep at night. Our souls may depart our body temples and go to other places and other schoolrooms for a learning experience.

Death, then, is the illusion of the cessation of life and it is only real to those who believe that our life is actually in the body. But life is in the flame in the heart and in the soul, and these move on as the path of acceleration continues here and hereafter.

Ultimately the demonstration of the ascension will mean not only the ascension of the soul but also of the physical body. But we have more immediate goals than the overcoming of physical death. Our immediate goal is the resurrection of life as it ought to be lived on earth today.

What about physical healing?

Physical healing may come about in the same way—through the use of meditation and the Science of the Spoken Word and also through the proper diet, which is most important.

We can see that light in our body temples brings about a manifestation of healing. Since so many physical conditions are caused by mental and emotional problems, the healing of the mind and emotions and the erasing by the violet flame of records in the subconscious is often all that is required to eliminate physical suffering.

So the first thing you seek to change is consciousness?

We go to cause behind effect. That doesn’t mean to say we don’t call upon the medical profession and use medicines and whatever is necessary—surgery, et cetera—for the correction of conditions in the body. But ultimately we seek to manifest the victory wherein the mind of God within us controls the manifestation in matter.

What happens after the resurrection?

You recall that after Jesus’ resurrection he came back. He spent forty days with the disciples. He gave them instruction in the Upper Room and told them: “Tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.” And that power from on high descended with the descent of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost.

After the resurrection comes the ascension. We talked about the concept of ascending every day, every hour. The ascension is the acceleration of consciousness. It is actually the increase of the vibratory rate of the electrons as they whirl about and through the nucleus of the atom until ultimately the soul reunites with the I AM Presence, the individualized Presence of God.

Ascension Mantra

The concluding mantra in the “Heart, Head and Hand” series is a mantra of the ascension. As soon as we begin to give it, we are accelerating the white light in our auras, preparing for that ultimate reunion with God at the conclusion of this life or our next life of incarnation. This is how it goes:

Ascension mantraI AM ascension light, Victory flowing free,
All of good won at last For all eternity.
I AM light, all weights are gone. Into the air I raise;
To all I pour with full God-power
My wondrous song of praise.

All hail! I AM the living Christ,
The ever-loving One.
Ascended now with full God-power,
I AM a blazing sun!

The visualization for this mantra is a sphere of white light that now envelops the entire form, the entire being. When we say, “I AM the living Christ,” we are affirming, “God in me is the living Christ, and that Christ, which was in Jesus, is now manifesting in me as the fullness of the threefold flame in my heart.”

Visualizing the self as a blazing sun gives us the key to the alchemy whereby Jesus disappeared from the people’s midst and whereby he could come into the Upper Room right through the wall. That alchemy was simply the rearrangement of the atoms and molecules of his physical body so they could pass through the atoms and molecules of the wall.

The day is going to come in the not-too-distant future when people on earth will be doing this without difficulty, and it is amazing how quickly this will happen as they begin to understand the science of the Word.

Now, when I say, “the science of the Word,” I’m talking about Word with a capital W. I’m talking about the Word incarnate. I’m not just talking about the words that come through the throat chakra in these decrees.

I’m talking about the Word as the very energy of creation, which we express when we give a mantra.

The goal of all of this is immortality, right?

That goal is something that is near and dear to the people of every religion in the world. Whether it’s called soul liberation or the ascension or nirvana, it is the same thing. It’s what Paul said: “This corruptible must put on incorruption.”

This corruptible must put on incorruption! Paul said that as the very equation of his being bursting from within. His soul was crying out—he knew this as the goal of life. And this is the eternal quest of the overcomers.

Paul also said, “This mortal must put on immortality.” This which is temporal in time and space, this soul, which is my option to opt for eternity, must accelerate, must return to the source whence it came—the I AM Presence.

What is the aura? Can You Read Auras?

10 Jun

The book The Human Aura by Kuthumi and Djwal Kul is a series of letters dictated through Mark Prophet to his students throughout the world. It goes into the aura in an exceptional way. We are all interested in knowing about the aura because at sublevels of awareness we all perceive one another’s aura. We’re all reading each other and that reading is being translated to our conscious mind.

When we have a sense of danger about a certain individual or an immediate affinity with someone or we sense that someone has a certain personality, we are contacting the aura. It’s an energy field. It’s a blueprint, and it exists before birth and after death.

Scientists have conducted studies on this energy field and have postulated that this nonphysical matrix, this electromagnetic blueprint, or “life field,” exists around every living thing on the planet—not just around people but around animals and plants. It has also been shown to exist around inorganic matter. Scientists call it an L-field.

Researchers have also discovered an energy field originating in the mind, which they call a “thought-field” (T-field). This in turn controls the L-field, or the life field. They say that the thought field exists independently of the physical brain, and both the T-field and the L-field are influenced by greater electromagnetic fields of the universe.

When we start thinking about this and the flow of life, we begin to reconsider our entire world view, even our concepts of theology and science, and we begin to realize that there is a continuity of being that we have been divorced from by the way we view the universe in the West.

Is the aura what is photographed in Kirlian photography?

Personally, when I see the aura I see much more than what is being photographed, but certainly Kirlian photography substantiates a nonphysical energy that we have not figured on scientifically before.

Jesus Christ’s Teaching in the Bible on the Aura

There’s no question that the great avatars have taught of the aura. Jesus said: “The light of the body is the eye. If therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!”

That statement denotes a mystical teaching. It cannot be understood from the context of the words themselves but only in the light of energy and its qualification.

In the concept of the eye being single, Jesus is talking about our attention. Where our attention rests, so will be the light of the body. If the eye is single, or single-minded—on God, on good, on developing the highest potential of being—then the body is full of light. But if the eye is evil, that is, if the eye descends out of that single-mindedness into the duality of a dual vision, which is seeing constantly the relativity of good and evil, then the body is full of darkness.

This shows that we have an energy field. That energy field can be full of light or it can be qualified as darkness. I have seen some people whose auras were literally surrounded by a black energy. And I have seen others whose auras were filled with light. Their eyes reflected that light as well as their joy, their laughter, their communion with the bubbling brook of the Holy Spirit, if you will.

I have noticed that the people who have a black energy around them also have chakras that emanate a darkness. When such people are in a state of anger, the blackness becomes charged with a crimson like lightning, which emanates from the mouth if they are verbalizing their anger or from the solar plexus if they are feeling that anger but not expressing it. The aura records moment by moment by moment the feelings and the thoughts of an individual.

The conclusion of Jesus is: “If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!” But how can light be darkness when they are opposites? The answer is that light is another name for energy, and energy is another name for God. The aura, then, is a receptacle that we have been given to contain God’s light, God’s energy, the very essence of God himself.

The Human Aura Records Thoughts and Feelings

Through the thoughts of our hearts, we may put a forcefield on the aura, creating greater light or creating darkness. The aura is the greatest proof that man has the gift of free will and that we have a certain portion of God’s energy allotted to us daily. This energy registers as the aura, and we can choose whether we are going to make that aura dark or light.

We are living in what would be considered by some standards on other systems of worlds quite a primitive era in that most people do not readily perceive the aura with the eyes and therefore do not readily see what people are in actuality. We do not have the aura to bear witness, so we grope blindly, trusting people we shouldn’t trust and not realizing that even the coming of illness or death registers on the aura before it occurs.

The Human Aura by Kuthumi and Djwal KulThis great science of the aura that we are now discovering can lift us out of the era of the blind leaders of the blind where people follow whoever smiles at them and says nice words.

People cannot conceal what they are in the aura. The aura is a giant mirror of the soul and of the consciousness.

The aura is like a garment, and it is possible for people to completely conceal very dark modes of consciousness by putting over the aura a patine of great light and the manifestation of light. Kuthumi describes this in The Human Aura.

Does the aura ever lie?

Ascended Master Kuthumi says that at various moments when individuals are off guard and they suddenly become enraged or irritated or challenged, the aura will turn inside out and these dark manifestations hidden neatly between the folds of the garment will come to the surface. We see this happening again and again as people’s hidden selves come to the surface for judgment.

Part of this is an activity of the soul itself. The soul is not content to be dwelling within a personality that is deceitful, because the soul’s basic orientation is to move toward oneness with the Spirit of the living God. And therefore the soul arranges circumstances whereby we are exposed or we betray ourselves.

This is why many times criminals who commit the perfect crime will make an obvious mistake. At subconscious levels the soul really wants to be caught, wants to be discovered and wants to be brought to judgment so it can begin to atone for its sin—or, in Hindu terms, to balance its karma. We can hide certain emanations of our consciousness for a time but not permanently because the law of God forces them to the surface for cleansing.

Does the knowledge of the aura have any practical uses?

human aura and chakras over David statueI think the practical uses of the aura have to do with garnering an energy field of light. The aura is a receptacle, an outer garment that we wear. In other words, our identity does not stop with our skin. And sometimes when people are in a certain frame of consciousness or very relaxed, they can look over at a friend and see an energy wavelength around the body. It is a forcefield right next to the body that has to do with the protective emanation of the soul.

Now, that is only the beginning. There are force fields beyond force fields that go out from that immediate energy field, and these forcefields are interconnecting receptacles. We have the option by our free will to invoke the light of God and to fill the aura with more and more energy of the sacred fire and therefore to contain within these receptacles a greater concentration of what is called God’s consciousness, or the God consciousness, or cosmic consciousness.

Interpenetrating and working with the aura are the seven chakras. These focuses of the sacred fire are points of God-awareness that can be developed by meditation and by the Science of the Spoken Word. The key chakra, as we have said, is the heart itself and the threefold flame within the heart.

Meditating upon the heart and the threefold flame and using the violet-flame invocations, one begins to establish a momentum that builds day by day until the momentum is so great that it becomes as great as that of Jesus. We know that the woman who had the issue of blood for twelve years needed merely to touch the hem of his garment to be healed.

Example of the Healing Power of Jesus’ Aura

But the touching of the hem of his garment was not simply a physical touching. The woman touched his aura, and by touching the aura and placing her attention upon it, she became a siphon. She was empty; he was full. His aura immediately was transferred to hers and made her whole.

And Jesus said, “I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. Who touched me?” He knew who touched him, but he made the statement so that we could realize that healing occurs through a transfer of energy.

He wanted us to know that if we would follow him all the way, as he is the great example of our overcoming, we must also fill our auras and our chakras with light so that when people come in contact with us we will have a reservoir of energy that can be used. Having the aura filled with light is being ready to extend the cup of cold water in Christ’s name.

chakra manThe aura is an example of the interdependence of all life, because it is through the aura and the seven chakras that emanations of love, feelings of joy and buoyancy flow and are received and transmitted. Through the aura we all interact with life. We interact with distant galaxies and distant stars, and we have the capacity to give and receive energy.

The concrete forcefield of man, the physical body, is the focal point on which all of this hangs. The physical body, the mental body, the emotional body and the memory body all interpenetrate as four interconnecting sheaths. These sheaths are surrounded by the L-field and T-field we were discussing earlier.

The fact that researchers have postulated the preexistence of those energy fields makes us grapple with questions of theology because we are discovering more and more of man as we discover more of the aura. What is the source of the aura?

We can conclude that our Creator has placed a portion of himself within us, beginning with the threefold flame in the heart. We know that the aura is actually a garment we wear. It is a transmitting and receiving station. It is highly susceptible to the mass consciousness, to emanations from beyond our planet, and even to beings who are beyond our level of consciousness. I often think of the plane in which we live as a thin line in time and space, with a vast cosmos above and below.

This cosmos consists of frequencies that our five senses are not equipped to deal with. Considering this, we can realize that if the aura itself extends beyond this thin black line, then it can be used as an extension of the self into other dimensions—for instance, as a space probe or a time probe or as an energy that actually enables us, while we are tied to this physical frame, to explore many planes of consciousness.

Is it the aura that accounts for such things as ESP?

Certainly the extrasensory perceptions, perceptions beyond the five senses (and scientists tell us we may have hundreds of senses), must come to us through the emanation of the aura. Many people realize that as our moods change, so our forcefield changes.

We know how we feel when we have had a good night’s sleep. The aura is recharged. It is charged with prana and with the emanations of the stars and of the earth currents, and we awake with a certain charge of energy. We also know how we feel when we are depleted.

These are not merely physical conditions. These conditions are based on how much of the energy of God’s consciousness we take in and retain. People notice that in prayer or meditation they increase self-awareness and increase the manifestation of the aura and of the chakras.

We notice that children can deplete the aura very quickly when they have a prolonged period of crying or a tantrum or become angry because their needs are not immediately met. At the conclusion, they usually drop off to sleep. They are exhausted because they have expended the energy content of the aura.

We find that certain types of music deplete our auras, while other types of music give us a sense of buoyancy and joy and of contacting realms of light, where we feel imbued by the consciousness of angels and ascended beings.

Reading The Human Aura

The aura is constantly being played upon; and the reading of the aura, as Kuthumi discusses in the Human Aura, is a profound science because there are so many levels and layers of the aura to be reckoned with. Truly it takes a level of adeptship that most people who claim a psychic clairvoyance actually do not have.

This is why Jesus said, “Judge righteous judgment.” An accurate analysis of the aura cannot be made from the surface, just as a doctor cannot produce an analysis of the health of the body by simply looking at the surface.

We may see manifestations in the aura that have to do with the type of environment the individual lives in, the pressures and tensions of life that he is under or the amount of karma that he is carrying that day. But that surface reading may tell us nothing of the deep soul yearnings and of an intense manifestation of light that comes from other lifetimes and incarnations.

It is important to realize that the aura is continually changing, like the blip on a tape-recording machine that registers the levels of one’s voice. The aura is a pulsating manifestation. It changes color and actually reflects the colors of frequencies that can be interpreted by the one who reads the aura as qualities of light or of darkness.

What are those colors, Mrs. Prophet?

Each color represents a certain band of frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum. Color is more than color; it is actually vibration. For instance, when we love with purity without desiring to possess, control or manipulate loved ones, there is a pure stream of pink energy that comes forth from the heart and fills the aura.

This is why we say when people are in love that life is “rosy” and that people see through rose-colored glasses. Their auras are so imbued with the pink energy and the pink spectrum that they can only behold life in that love energy. Therefore they are not critical or analytical, but they are buoyed up by their own sense of the presence of God as love.

When love becomes impure because of lust and darkness and carnal manipulation and a misuse of that sacred energy of life, the auras of people become charged with a vibration—hence a color—that is not the pure pink of that rosy-cheeked babe that represents the fullness of our concept of love. The pink will take on perhaps a crimson color of passion or a dark gray and black tone and quality—the deathlike grip of the attempt to control individuals, whether one’s children or whomever one is sharing a relationship with.

But because most people are not capable of reading the aura, they are often misled by the words, the sweet words that someone may be speaking, rather than seeing beyond to the motive of the heart and the motive of desire within the subconscious. Because people do not read the aura, they must rely on an inner sense, almost a sixth sense.

Pilate was not able to read the aura of Jesus or he would never have turned him over to the Sanhedrin. He had to rely on the dream of his wife to determine that “this is a good man—leave him alone!” How impoverished we are that we think we have to rely on dreams, astrology, et cetera, when the aura is giving us, as though it were shouting from the housetops, every reading we need.

What can we do in the absence of our ability to read the aura?

Elizabeth Clare ProphetWe can tune in to the soul, because the soul will always tell us the truth if we maintain contact with this center of God consciousness. The soul knows—and will tell us by giving us that immediate first impression about someone—whether a person is right or wrong or rightly or wrongly motivated.

When we listen to the soul speaking within us as an inner voice, we can avoid costly mistakes in business and financial situations as well as in our love life and in our interactions with people. It is important to trust our first impression of someone, because subsequent to it, the individual will become familiar and we will start to incorporate his or her ways, actions and aura into our own. There will no longer be that sharp impact of the initial contact.

So the aura is our best defense, but we need to be still. As Jesus said, “Be still, and know that I am God.” We must be still and know that the I AM within us is the God who will direct us and care for us until we can expand our soul faculties to make full use of the aura, which is our gift from God.

Mrs. Prophet, is there a distinction between that intuitive feeling we get about each other and reading the aura?

Yes, there is a great distinction.

The intuitive feeling acts independently of the ability to read the aura and is a substitute for it. It is just another safety valve that we have—something that we can have without the development of aura reading and aura probing. It is a necessary faculty of self-protection that is built into the human psyche.

The reading of the aura demands years of study, but the very first principle that Kuthumi teaches us is the purification of the faculty of vision. This has to do with the clearing of the third-eye center, the Ajna, at the brow so that we can begin to see as God sees, which is God’s basic desire for us.
