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.

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.
