The Secret to Transforming Our Lives

23 Aug

Ascended Masters

The ascended masters teach that there is no greater power than the spoken Word to effect permanent change.  Some contemporary students of the masters have used the spoken Word for more than thirty years to bring about profound change in their lives.  Spiritual people from ancient traditions around the world have been using it for centuries

Hindu, Buddhist and Jewish mystics believe that the Word is the source of all the exists.  Indeed, several religious texts say that is created the world.  If we believe the mystics, the Word is the most powerful generative force in the universe.  If the Word can fashion worlds, just imagine what it can do for us!

Understanding the power of sound and its effect upon material and spiritual creation is good motivation to try for yourself.  For example, you can use the name of God “I AM” to effect positive change in your world.  However, if the concept of the spoken Word is new to you or feels strange in the beginning, just remember the old adage “Nothing ventured, nothing gained.”

The Word–the Power of Creation

Why is the Word so powerful?  The Bible and the ancient Hindu Vedas say that the Word is God, or Brahman.  In the Vedas, we read, “In the beginning was Brahman with whom was the Word, and the Word is Brahman.”  Likewise, the apostle John wrote, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”  And Genesis says that when God spoke the words “Let there be light,”  the process of creation began.  The Word that was spoken was not just any word.  It was the Word of God–a frequency released as the sacred word AUM at the origin of creation.

In the Eastern Indian view of the cosmos the whole universe is an ocean of sound and light of varying degrees of density or luminosity.  In this belief system, sound precedes light.  This worldview may explain why God had to “speak” in order for the light to come into being.  The mystics of East and West understood how to harness the power of the Word.  They have connected with that force of creation by repeating spoken mantras and the names of God.  The ascended masters have expanded upon this ancient practice by teaching their students a powerful form of spoken prayer called the Science of the Spoken Word.  Today disciples use the Word in affirmations, prayers, mantras and decrees–a form of rhythmic spoken prayer–to draw the essence of divine light from the I AM Presence and cosmic beings into the planes of matter to bring transformation and constructive change.

You must recognize that you and God, as one, are the majority for the

entire planet.  You in God can change the earth!  And when we multiply our-

selves many times over through the Science of the Spoken Word…the union of

our souls with our I AM Presence–and our oneness with the Great White

Brotherhood through our I AM Presence–gives us a power untold…

-Elizabeth Clare Prophet

Using the Science of the Spoken Word gives us a way to easily contact the ascended masters, the angels and our own Higher Selves.  Once we have made that contact, we can draw on the power of Spirit to bring about the opportunities needed to fulfill our life plans, to help others and to change the world.  Understanding that sound has power to change matter helps explain why spoken prayer is much effective than silent prayer.

Sound Affects Matter

Ancient Eastern sages taught that matter is actually the interplay of waves of sound.  Hans Jenny, a Swiss doctor and scientist, demonstrated through practical experiments just how sound shapes matter.  In these experiments, he used an oscillator to vibrate materials on various membranes and then photographed the results.  Using a variety of frequencies, pitches and volumes, Jenny showed how sound can create intricate geometrical patterns and forms, many of which have an astonishing resemblance to patterns found in nature.

Sound is actively used today to transform matter.  Modern medical technology employs sound to clean wounds and pulverize kidney stones.  Alternative medical practitioners use tonal frequencies to help heal organs.  Sound is even being investigated as an energy source to replace traditional methods of power generation. It is time that we begin to tap the creative power of sound in our personal lives!

Tapping Unlimited Power through Affirmations

Affirmations are the perfect place to start re-creating ourselves and the world around us by using sound and the Science of the Spoken Word.  Affirmations have been used in schools of positive thought for many years to help people relax, to do better in a job or a sport, or to just become happier.  They usually begin with the words “I AM,” followed by a desirable quality or action.  Some examples are : “I AM successful in my job!”  “I AM a loving person!”  “I AM overcoming all obstacles and limitations!”   “I AM absorbing new material quickly and easily!”

The power in affirmations lies within the “I AM” phrase, which is derived from the name of God “I AM THAT I AM.”  The masters shorten this name to “I AM” when giving affirmations.  In a spiritual sense, the words “I AM” mean “God in me is.”  So when we say the words “I AM” or “I AM THAT I AM,” we tap into the unlimited light-energy of divinity and it is instantaneously transmitted to us.  Constructive “I AM” affirmations can be used to strengthen the qualities of God within ourselves.  As noted in the Bible, Jesus Christ used affirmations with powerful positive associations such as:

  • As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world
  • I am the resurrection and the life.  He that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.
  • I am the way, the truth and the life.  No man cometh unto the Father but by me.

Jesus understood that it was God in him, the I AM Presence, that was fulfilling the Word that he spoke, not his human self.  In the same way, giving these or similar affirmations allow us to draw more of the eternal consciousness of the Divine in ourselves.  Repeating affirmations and using them consistently over a period of time accelerates the process as our subconscious begins to assimilate the concepts.  The positive thoughts then begin to work outward into our conscious awareness and we can see results.  By using affirmations, we can re-create our lives and bring ourselves into much closer attunement with God’s light and consciousness.  Here are some affirmations:

  • I AM light!
  • I AM light/energy/consciousness
  • I AM invincible and victorious!
  • I AM everywhere in the consciousness of God!
  • I AM the spirit of joy!
  • I AM love in action!

Awakening Your Divine Nature

5 Jul

When we hear the word resurrection, most of us think of Jesus’ return to life after his crucifixion or of the expected return to life of all Christians at the end of time.  But resurrection does not necessarily mean the return of the physical body to life after death.  Some of the Greek words in the New Testament translated as “resurrection” also mean “awakening.”  In a mystical sense, resurrection can mean that you are changed from a state of being spiritually dead or asleep into a state of being spiritually alive and awake.  The resurrection is the awakening of the soul to her divine nature.  This realization that you are God is more than just knowing it intellectually; it is affirming and manifesting your divinity in every particle of your physical and spiritual being. When you awaken to the truth that you are God, you begin your transformation into the divine being that you were at the moment of creation.

As the Gnostic scripture the Treatise on the Resurrection tells us, “The resurrection…is the revelation of what is, and the transformation of things, and a transition into newness.”  Those who have the resurrection, the text tells us, “receive again what at first was.”  When you are resurrected, then you not only understand your divine nature, you also have access to the power that you knew at the moment of creation, when you were one with your I AM Presence.  Like the other stages on the way to union with God, the resurrection is accomplished in increments.  Each time you give the “Resurrection” decree, your entire being is infused with the flame of resurrection.  This  flame is a unique form of regenerative spiritual energy.  When you invoke the resurrection flame regularly, it will gradually open your spiritual energy centers, or chakras, so that they are capable of receiving more light, specifically the light of the ascension.

Though the flame of resurrection can also have a beneficial effect on the body, it doesn’t necessarily prevent people from dying physically.  Its primary function is to propel the soul to enter the state of eternal life, which is union with God.  Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life.  Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die.”  When we echo Jesus and say, “I AM the resurrection and the life,” and give other decrees to the resurrection flame, we are reminding ourselves that in reality we are now and forever one with the I AM Presence.  Thus, as Jesus promised, even if we die, we will live–our souls will live forever even when our bodies will have turned to dust.

As the resurrection flame is transforming your soul, it can also revitalize your body.  When you invoke the flame of resurrection, it begins to work inside your physical cells, starting with the centrosome inside of the cell and expanding out until it infuses and fills every part of your body, your mind and your emotions.  Some people have found that when they invoke the resurrection flame, they can feel the reversal of the effects of aging and disease.  Others are freed from limiting concepts about themselves and filled with the impetus and ability to do things they have always wanted to do.

Resurrection
