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.

Lords of the Seven Rays: Lady Master Nada

25 Oct

1042.tif

As Lord of the Sixth Ray of Ministration and Service the Ascended lady Master Nada assists ministers, missionaries, healers, teachers, psychologists, counselors at law, professional people, public servants in government as well as those devoted to serving the needs of God’s children in every branch of human and health services.  You will also find her at the side of businessmen and women, blue-collar, skilled and unskilled workers, farmers, ranchers, defenders of Freedom and revolutionaries of Love in every field.

1007.tif

 

Of course , Nada loves them all because she teaches the principle and practice of the sacred labor as the effective means to achieve the goal of the ascension.  Fittingly, the mottos of her disciples are “I serve, the servant is not greater than his Lord, and I am my brother’s keeper.”  Nada tells us of the initiations and joy of selfless service:

“Understand this formula of selflessness:  To know when you have become selfless is to not be aware of the choice of selflessness.  By this I mean that the natural course of your life is always the preferring of the love of God, the service of that God incarnate.  To be aware of self, its pleasures, its privileges, its preferences, and then to make a choice to forgo that self is a step taken on the path of selflessness which must indeed be taken… But once you have reached that center, you are no longer aware of choosing between the Self–the Real Self–and the not-self.  For you have become that living Self and you identify with all preferences to be that Self, to be immersed in that Self, to be the hands, the heart, the head of the Lord where you are needed, wherever it is required, filing in for God, supplying every need and therefore supplying each aspect of the Christ which someone may lack fulfillment in for the mastery of the threefold flame. Your preference is then in supplying the tenderness and compassion, perceiving the need because your sensitivity to God has been refined not only by the All-Seeing Eye, but by the exercise of the secret rays, letting those rays flow through you and fearing not the pain of the crucifixion, but altogether transforming that pain into the bliss of communion.”

The gifts of the Holy Spirit which Nada administers are those of diverse kinds of tongues and the interpretation of tongues. These gifts involve the mastery of nuances of vibration in the five secret rays, and their almost infinite combinations with the elements of the seven rays as the qualities of the Word are released through the petal of the chakras.

As pertains to human, divine, and angelic tongues, these gifts involve the mastery of speech, communication and the delivery of the Word.  They range from the mastery of earth’s languages for the transmission of the Word universally to all to proficiency in the tongues of angels as spoken by angelic messengers through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. Such releases given from an enraptured, exalted, or altered state are dictations (sometimes ex cathedra) for the initiation of souls and transfer of the sacred fires from the altars of heaven.  These fires, grounded through the anointed, are surely for the blessings of the saints who labor in Love under the weight of planetary karma they bear, or for the binding, surely, of the embodied seed of fallen angels whose hour for the final judgement has come.

The gift of tongues also facilitate understanding between peoples and figure in the art of diplomacy and just plain getting along with your neighbor–the soft answer that turneth away wrath, the bridling of the tongue that James admonished–comforting a child or the wounded soul. This is the science of the Spoken Word.
