Daily Attention On Your I Am Presence

28 Aug

 

Some people do not remember to give attention to their I AM Presence daily for ten minutes and then to retain that attention on the I AM Presence throughout the day. People ask me, “How do you do this?” Well, when you establish a very firm connection with Almighty God from the moment you awaken and you begin your meditation even when you are preparing yourself for your activities, and you give your decrees, it is like the background and the backdrop of your day. Whatever else your attention may be engaged in, your attention is really always on God, and everything else proceeds from that attention. And when you get into tense situations and long periods of total exertion of all of your forces, you take microseconds, split seconds, and you go back to that point of attunement and oneness. It is the anchor point of your energy and your Light. It’s like taking all of the forces of one’s being and hanging them on the hook of God and seeing that all is in an upward motion and an upward movement.

As you know, there is plenty of opposition to the crown chakra and to illumination’s flame. It comes in lethargy and sloth, heavy eating and diet making us sleepy, dulling our mental faculties, postponing the studying and the organizing of our spiritual work. But illumination is not merely the sharpening of one’s being in this octave; it is truly, through the crown chakra, oneness with the Father. It is practicing the Presence of God. And it is the Father who teaches us what we must learn from the teachings of the Son, or the Word incarnate.

And so, our goal is not merely to study, but to have the Word of the masters and to have the attunement with the Father through the crown chakra to assimilate, to know, to understand, to penetrate, to contain the essence of the Light for the supreme purpose of one’s own union with God—but even more importantly, for the purpose of having the right morsel of the Bread of Life, the right understanding, when we meet those in need on the path of life. Having this in the storehouse and treasure trove of our memory and our mind, the Holy Spirit can then release the precise wisdom for very difficult situations.

And I find as I go on in life that the challenges I discover in people and their problems become more complex, more demanding, more defying of the very presence of God which I would bring. And I realize that this is the end to which I have been prepared and to which you yourselves have been prepared: this high calling of being in the Presence of the Father and therefore always His instrument.

I AM Presence

Who Are You? – The Identity of the True Self

The mystical heart of the world’s religions is the identity of the true Self. The understanding of the Self is the most important insight that any individual can have in life.

The Self begins with the permanent atom of being, the cause out of which the effect proceeds. We call this cause the I AM THAT I AM, the Presence of the I AM, or the I AM Presence.

This Real Self is seen in relationship to the evolving self on a chart that is called the Chart of Your Divine Self. It illustrates so many of the cosmic truths that have been discovered by the great mystics of East and West.

The Chart has three parts and, in a sense, could be called the trinity of your identity.

Your I AM Presence

I AM Presence and the causal bodyFirst, there is the upper figure, which is a sphere of light called the “I AM Presence.” To Hindus, it is Brahma. Buddhists call it the Dharmakaya, while Christians think of it as God the Father. It is the spirit of God individualized for each one.

Your I AM Presence is surrounded by seven concentric spheres which make up your causal body. These spheres of pulsating spiritual energy contain the record of all your good works. They are like your cosmic bank account.

Your causal body has spheres of cosmic consciousness—seven planes of heaven, seven spheres of awareness corresponding to the seven mighty Elohim, the seven Archangels, the seven days of creation, and the seven color rays that are emitted from the white light that is the person and the principle of the Father, or Brahma, or I AM THAT I AM.

These seven ways translate to seven paths back to the Source and the Lords of the Seven Rays are ascended masters who teach seekers on those paths.

Your I AM Presence is a part of your being right now; it is not removed, it is not separated from you in time and space. The only separation you have from the I AM THAT I AM is your own human consciousness, your sense of limitation, and the accumulation of vibrations from this, and previous lifetimes, that are less than the highest qualities of your Real Self.

Your Higher Self

Holy Christ SelfBetween the sphere of light above and the soul evolving below is the consciousness of the Mediator. The mediator is that portion of the Self that can translate to the imperfect soul something of the perfection of the I AM THAT I AM. It is that portion of your being that is real enough to stand in the holy Presence of God.

We call this mediator the Higher Self, the Higher Mental Body, the Real Self or the Holy Christ Self. The Christian mystics sometimes referred to the Mediator as the “inner man of the heart.”

It is the Self that you are in a state of becoming through our evolution, through all of your experiences in time and space.

Depending on your spiritual tradition, you can think of this Mediator as your chief guardian angel, your inner guru (Higher Self or Atman), the voice of conscience—and always as your dearest friend.

What the Chart of Your Divine Self shows is that each of us has a Higher Self and that each of us is destined to become one with that Self, whether we call it the Christ, the Buddha, the Tao or the Atman.

You – The Living Potential of God

Your soul is evolving on the spiritual path in time and space. It is the part of you that is mortal—but that can become immortal.

Soul bathed in violet flameThe violet flame is depicted in the Chart of the Presence around you. The violet flame is a high-frequency energy of forgiveness. It’s a spiritual alchemy.

Around the violet flame is the protective white light of God known as the tube of light. We apply the science of the spoken Word to call forth that tube of light as a protection, sealing our aura, sealing our chakras from the heavy weight of darkness that is upon the planet. (More on how to invoke the tube of light.)

The shaft of white light descending from the I AM Presence through the Holy Christ Self to the lower figure in the Chart is the crystal cord (sometimes called the silver cord). It is the “umbilical cord,” the lifeline, that ties you to Spirit.

Your crystal cord also nourishes that special, radiant flame of God that is ensconced in the secret chamber of your heart. That is the threefold flame—called “threefold” because it engenders the primary attributes of Spirit—power, wisdom and love.

Secret Chamber of the Heart TSLIt is a very real spiritual flame about 1/16 of an inch, focused within the physical body approximately at the heart. It is a spark of sacred fire that God has transmitted from his heart to yours.

The Hindu Katha Upanishad speaks of the divine spark as the “Light of the Spirit” that is connected in the “secret high place of the heart.” The divine spark abides in what the Sikh Sri Guru Granth Sahib speaks of as Sach Khand, the secret chamber of the heart.

This threefold flame endows our being with consciousness, with self-awareness. The threefold flame is what separates us from animals. We are sons and daughters of God and children of the Light. God has given to us that spark of himself.

The ascended master Saint Germain sponsors a universal spiritual order called the Keepers of the Flame® Fraternity. Keepers of the Flame vow to keep this flame of life burning on the altar of their hearts. They tend this fire by preserving and upholding the principles of freedom and the sacredness of life, and by extending the flame to others who do not know that they have a divine spark.

The Purpose of Your Soul’s Evolution

The purpose of your soul’s evolution on earth is to grow in self-mastery, balance your karma, fulfill your mission on earth and make your ascension in the Light.

The end of all your incarnations is to become your Real Self, so that you return to the spiritual dimensions that are your real home. Through attention to your spiritual path, the three figures in the Chart—now separate because of a limited consciousness—will one day become one.

You, too, can attain union with God.

Halloween Costumes

30 Oct

Halloween Costumes

Halloween (Hallowe’en), observed primarily in English-speaking nations, has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints’ Day.

The ascended masters teach that, eons ago, early root races on Earth were pure, innocent and peaceful. They knew they were gods in manifestation. They learned about good and evil from the archangels and angels who would perform in profound Shakespearean-like dramas.  They learned about the consequences when the angel actors chose maya (illusion), chose evil or chose good.  They could see the repercussions of poor choices without actually having to make the mistakes (and karma) themselves.

At the end of their cycles of reincarnation and self-mastery, these early root races attained union with God through the ritual of the ascension.

And this is the divine intent: That in each lifetime, we put on more and more of the consciousness of God until—at last—things equal to the same thing are equal to each other.The culmination of the experience of all of our lifetimes is to become one with God and make our ascension in the light.

But, some of the angels portraying evil in these great dramas began to so identify with their theatrical roles that they forgot their divine estate and took on the negatives of their characters.  As their consciousness was no longer able to identify with God, they took on human bodies and continued to reembody with their indulgence in all manner of perversions.

Over the millennia, mankind identified more with the fallen angels than the holy angels. Most people believe they are animals and miserable sinners instead of being sons and daughters of God. At at soul level, the morale of the entire civilization has been lowered. The collective unconscious gives people a helpless sense of limitation.

In other words, we have forgotten that we can become God. As Teilhard De Chardin wrote, “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience.”

So the greatest Halloween costume of all may be the one that you see in the mirror.

Remove the mask. Become your Real Self. And, step by step, as you make progress on your spiritual path, you will become more of God each day.

Excerpt from Becoming God: The Path of the Christian Mystic by Elizabeth Clare Prophet, on of the Mystical Paths of the World’s Religions series.

The Greatest Halloween Costume of All

Halloween Costumes – You Channel What You Wear.

Traditional Halloween costumes are characters from horror movies and freak shows. Over the last few decades it’s expanded to include famous Hollywood characters, living, dead, and animated.

The universal law of attraction states that you become what you put your attention on.

The ascended masters teach that on Halloween the fallen ones (fallen angels, demons, discarnates, entities, witches, etc.) use this science to channel their destructive energies through those who don the costumes of the damned. Through the increased attention on evil (even in a supposedly “fun” way) waves of darkness are spewed forth from the astral pit on an unsuspecting mankind. Some of the energy is overt, some is more subtle, pernicious and subliminally destructive.

In the same way, when people wear costumes of the angels, nature spirits, fairies, knights and ladies of the Round Table, or saints, it’s an heavenly attraction.

The ascended masters have said that they will place their light body, their electronic presence, over those who put on the costumes depicting ascended masters, angels and elementals (costumes of a higher vibration) thus anchoring their Light on earth to the benefit of all.

So, who are you going to be this year?

The Science of the Immaculate Concept

21 Mar

The immaculate concept is defined as any pure thought held by one part of life for and on behalf of another part of life.  It is the essential ingredient to true healing, in fact the essential ingredient for every alchemical experiment, without which it will not succeed.  The ability to hold the image of the perfect pattern to be precipitated, to see the vision of a project complete, to draw a mental picture, to retain it and to fill it in with light and love and joy:  these are keys to the science of the immaculate concept that Mother Mary and Saint Germain teach.

A certain understanding of this science has filtered through the metaphysical movements of the past century.  The science of the immaculate concept is based on the realization that God has made man in his image and likeness; and therefore behind the outer manifestation, there is a perfect reality and a perfect form.

God is the supreme practitioner of the science of the immaculate concept.  No matter how far man might wander from his individuality, God ever beholds man in his image of Reality in which he created him.  We must have clearly in mind that the natural state of being is wholeness, is oneness with God, is the perfection of the Law.  The perfection, this law, this being, is the True Self that exists behind the outer manifestation of an absence of wholeness.  In reality, this is the Real Self that we would become.

This science of the immaculate concept is the law that is written in the inward parts of man, known by his very heart of hearts, yet dim in the memory of his outer mind.  It is based on the visualization of a perfect idea that then becomes a magnet that attracts the creative energies of the Holy Spirit to his being to fulfill the pattern held in mind.

1040.tif                                        cyclopea eye

We can visual the All-Seeing Eye of God superimposed over our third-eye-chakra.  Using the gift of God of clear seeing, we behold the perfect Master.   We see before us Jesus the Christ. We have his image clearly in mind, as he is a key figure in our overcoming.  Or we may visualize the Buddha, or Kuan Yin or Mother Mary.

We translate the perfection of these sons and daughters of God to our own self, and in the calmness of our meditation upon God we know that this identity is also native to us.  Then we begin to mentally affirm that perfection, even as we verbalize that perfection through the science of the spoke Word.

Having seen what you are in Spirit and what is the potential of your soul, you must retain that image of Reality in your thoughts and feelings.  For the image is a natural repellent to all that opposes you Reality in manifestation, and the perfect idea becomes a magnet that attracts creative energies of the Holy Spirit to your being to fulfill the patterns held in the mind.

We can also practice this science for others.  As we hold the image of healing and perfection for them, this becomes the matrix that the light can fill in to bring about healing, even while we fulfill the practical steps in the physical plane to assist in that healing.

I AM the One

30 Aug

I AM the ONE!

Keeping the Flame of Life

Which one are you? I AM the ONE! Keeping the Flame of Life

Most people are content to wait for the world to change. A few, however, cannot wait to change the world! And that’s you. YOU are a lightbearer! And what do lightbearers do? They keep the Flame of Life. They lead by example, knowing that everything they do affects everyone else.

Who Are You? – The Identity of the True Self

The mystical heart of the world’s religions is the identity of the true Self. The understanding of the Self is the most important insight that any individual can have in life.

The Self begins with the permanent atom of being, the cause out of which the effect proceeds. We call this cause the I AM THAT I AM, the Presence of the I AM, or the I AM Presence.

Life is a precious opportunity

Keepers of the Flame believe Life is sacred, because all life comes from God. Each blade of grass, each creature of sea, air and land, all who carry the threefold flame within the heart…ALL are endowed with the spark of Life that originates from God. And because Life is sacred, it must be protected.

Who will stand for Life?

Who will do what needs to be done? Keepers of the Flame! It is no small task that Keepers must perform, but it is essential that there are those with the consciousness and will to take up this banner and hold it high: I AM the ONE! If not you, who? If not now, when? Life must be protected, defended and cherished. And in so doing, the opportunity for each soul to progress on the homeward path to God is preserved.

The One in you is the One in all!

Being a Keeper of the Flame is a high and holy calling, for the Flame of Life is the flame of opportunity. Each and every soul must have the opportunity to choose whether or not to climb the mountain of consciousness and reunite with the heart of God. If the opportunity for life is compromised or denied, choice is limited or nullified.

And it is not only life aborning in the womb that the Keeper seeks to preserve, but the opportunity for the Life within the heart of each lightbearer to become manifest at any time, at any age.

We must be willing to awaken to the magnificent fire within that is our birthright, the divine blueprint that we are intended to embody and manifest in the full glory of Christhood.

We must not be lukewarm. We cannot compromise. Keepers of the Flame are a community of lightbearers dedicated to preserving and expanding the fire of God’s Presence throughout the world to one day usher in a new golden age, where love, light and illumination reign supreme.

And you don’t have to imagine that Reality. You can make it happen. Don’t wait for the world to change. Change the world!

Recognize that as you are a lightbearer, you are a Keeper of the Flame of Life wherever you are…and in all you do!

The Purpose of Your Soul’s Evolution

The purpose of your soul’s evolution on earth is to grow in self-mastery, balance your karma, fulfill your mission on earth and make your ascension in the Light.

The end of all your incarnations is to become your Real Self, so that you return to the spiritual dimensions that are your real home. Through attention to your spiritual path, the three figures in the Chart—now separate because of a limited consciousness—will one day become one.

You, too, can attain union with God.

The Mystery of the Perfect Christ

18 Apr

I am come, then, that ye might have understanding of the path and therefore not be confounded by the fallen ones you meet upon that path. For they would condemn you for even meeting them at all, as though it was your fault that they fell from highest star. The fallen ones in pride blame all and everything upon the chosen ones, who bear the cup of my life unto the resurrection of the whole Body of God.

The mystery fulfilled is in the opening of your eye, not to relative good and evil but, by and by, to the revelation of the perfect Christ within you. By that perfect Christ, by that perfect light, the co-measurement of the real and the unreal is clear. Then, undaunted, you move through the poisoned vapors of the black magician’s lair.

You do not succumb to the pollution of the soul, the attempt to confuse the issues, for yours is the burning and smoking lamp of your father Abraham. His acceptable offering of his son Isaac is a rising incense that will atone for every departure from the Law. Let the acceptable sacrifice be made. Let the offering be given.

When all misqualified energy is placed within the flame as he, Jesus, did do — taking all that was misqualified from the multitudes and laying it upon the altar as his offering in the way — when all of this is said and done and you have passed unreality into the flame, the only acceptable offering unto God is the pure and living Christ of you, the only begotten Son.

Him crucified is your resurrection. Thus, when there is nothing left to give, you give to humanity the gift of your Real Self. This is the message of Easter.
