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.


I 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.
