What is the Inner Self? – Elizabeth Clare Prophet

****

Your Divine Blueprint – Episode 2

In our last interview with Elizabeth Clare Prophet, we spoke about contacting the law of the Inner Self. What is the Inner Self?

The Inner Self has been revealed in many forms to those who have sought it. And the forms that the Self has taken have determined the course of the world’s major religions. Gautama discovered that Self to be the Buddha. Jesus discovered that Self to be the Christ. But Moses began with the inner realization of what, for me, is the cause behind the effect—the real Source.

When God appeared to Moses out of the bush that burned but was not consumed and gave him his commission to go and speak to the people of Israel and to rescue them from Egyptian bondage, Moses asked the voice that spoke to him, “Who shall I say sent me?” And the voice of God spoke and gave the identification that has been for time immemorial the source of light to his people. God said, “Tell the children of Israel that I AM hath sent you unto them.” And he gave his name as I AM THAT I AM.

This was the declaration of being, and upon that declaration of being was the mission of Moses. It was power. It was energy. It was consciousness. It was self-awareness. And the LORD said, “And this shall be my name forevermore.”

This name of God is not simply a name, but it is a word that comes out of that Word by which all things were made. When we say the name I AM THAT I AM we are confirming that the same God who spoke to Moses stands where we stand.

I think that this is the very beginning of the science of the splitting of the atom, the releasing of the energies of the nucleus of life. And it is also the beginning of the opening of the Inner Self of man and woman.

Everybody says “I am” many times a day. So are you saying that they’re actually naming God when they say “I am”?

Heart Chakra, Summit LighthouseThe verb to be is the first statement of being, and as God is First Cause, he is Being. Some schools of metaphysics and teachings such as Unity have taught, as has Norman Vincent Peale, that what we affirm in a positive way we bring into our lives, and what we affirm negatively we also bring into our lives.

Some have evolved positive affirmations beginning with “I am”: “I am well.” “I am happy.” “I am whole.” And they have cautioned us not to say “I am sick” or “I am tired” or “I am unhealthy.” And we find that these affirmations work, not only because of the power of positive thinking but because the very name I AM itself releases the energy of God.

Is the element of ego involved in this? I think to many people it appears that when one says “I am,” one is asserting one’s ego.

It is the Divine Ego of us all who declares within us, “I AM.” We can choose to be that I AM. We can choose to be one with that Divine Ego or we can rebel against it and say, “Well, I’m going to be what I want to be.” We can affirm a separate identity from that inner I AM, and we can affirm it so long that we eventually lose contact with the inner Divine Ego and we live the life of the human ego.

You have mentioned the teachings of Buddha. Where is the teaching of the I AM found in Eastern religions?

In the East, the corollary to the I AM THAT I AM is the Om, which is spelled Om or Aum. The object of religion and of devotion in the East is to go within, to go into samadhi, to go into nirvana. And the going within to the source of energy is reflected in the way of life. For instance, in India, where religion is of major import, the outer conditions of many reflect poverty, but the people have a rich inner life.

In the West the goal of contact with God is to go within and draw forth the inner flame for the mastery of the matter plane. And we find that mastery being expressed in our environment.

One of the mantras used in the East to go within is the Om. In the West, God has given us the word Om as I AM THAT I AM. When it is repeated as a mantra, “I AM THAT I AM, I AM THAT I AM…,” it has the effect of drawing forth energy to meet every challenge of our life.

Can one use it in a broader sense? Is there more that one can do with it other than simply affirming that I AM?

Jesus said, “I AM the way, the truth and the life” and “I AM the resurrection and the life.” Jesus actually gave many affirmations that have been recorded in scripture, and he gave many more to his disciples that were not recorded. He taught them what we call the Science of the Spoken Word. That science begins with God and it ends with God, and it places man* in the middle as the one who is the instrument for God becoming God.

What is the relationship between God and his Word?

John says that in the beginning was the Word and without the Word was not anything made that was made. We find that the Word was made flesh in the incarnation of Jesus Christ. So the Word figures as the Second Person of the Trinity, the Christ, the Son of God. And the function of the Word is creation, the bringing forth out of the Father and out of his law the physical manifestation for us to behold. Man’s lack of understanding of the Word before it is made flesh is that darkness that comprehended not the light.

With the coming of the Son of God, we discover the meaning of the Word as the Christ Consciousness, as the very mind of God, of which Paul said, “Let that mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.”

This means that we can all become the incarnation of the Word. We can all attain to the level of Christ consciousness. In fact, it is our soul destiny to do so, and not only to be aware of the Self as God but to be aware of the Self as Father, as Son and as Holy Spirit—or, as the Hindus would phrase it, as Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

I suppose it’s good to say that everybody can become the Christ, but how many have succeeded? Isn’t Jesus the only one?

I think that people have an idolatrous sense of Jesus. They worship their own concept of what Jesus was. He is seen as the perfect Master, and he was indeed the perfect Master. But he is depicted in people’s minds as someone robotlike, perfected in the flesh, so far above everyone else that no matter how well people do in their daily lives they can never come close to approximating the life of Jesus Christ.

And yet the saints have told us that we must imitate Christ. The Imitation of Christ by Thomas à Kempis is an important Christian work because it tells us that we must try to imitate Jesus’ life. Jesus told us, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”

Now, many think that it is blasphemy to try to become like Christ. They believe that there was only one Son of God and that no one else can be like him because we are all sinners. It is this concept of original sin carried on and on generation after generation that makes people not even try to master the basic principles of life that Jesus taught. I believe this to be error and to be anti-Christ, and I believe that it deprives Christians, Jews, Muslims and the whole world of the very essence of the life that Jesus lived.

This essence is expressed in Jesus’ statement: “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do because I go unto my Father.” This statement is the promise of the LORD Christ himself, and our assignment is to work with him and with the Father and to be an imitator of his work.

Threefold flame and secret chamber of the heart chakraIf Jesus is giving us this assignment, then he must know that God has placed within us the resources to fulfill it. What are these resources? The basic resource of life is the spark of cosmic consciousness, which is the flame in the heart—the threefold flame of love, wisdom and power. The threefold flame is our inner focal point of the Trinity.

I believe that Christianity, as well as Judaism and Islam, has been stripped of the very meat of the Word because Jesus, Muhammad, Moses and the great prophets have been made an exception to the rule rather than the rule of living for us all.

Now is the hour for the coming of our understanding of God as Mother—a Mother who takes her children by the hand and teaches them the wisdom and the law of the Father, a Mother of consolation who explains the role of the Holy Spirit as the great Comforter and the great forgiver in life.

Our understanding, then, is not of original sin but of “original bliss,” as we are born of the Father-Mother God, Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending. As we see our souls coming forth from the Father-Mother God, we realize that we come into the world not with the sin of Adam and Eve but with the original blueprint of our Maker.

This divine blueprint endows us with the ability to become joint heirs with Christ, with Moses, with Muhammad and with Gautama Buddha.


*Because gender-neutral language can be cumbersome and at times confusing, we have often used he and him to refer to God or the individual. These terms are for readability only and are not intended to exclude women or the feminine aspect of the Godhead. Likewise, our use of God or Spirit does not exclude other expressions for the Divine.

Our Divine Self – The Summit Lighthouse

I Am Presence Summit Lighthouse

****

Our Divine Self

The Chart of Our Divine Self illustrates cosmic truths that have been taught by the great mystics of East and West.

The Chart has three parts representing the trinity of our identity.

The upper figure, the sphere of light called the I AM Presence, is the spirit of God individualized for each of us.

Our I AM Presence is surrounded by seven concentric spheres which comprise the causal body. This pulsating spiritual energy contains the record of all our good works, we can think of it as our cosmic bank account.

Our causal body has seven spheres corresponding to the seven color rays of God’s consciousness. The only cause of our separation from the I AM THAT I AM is our human consciousness, the accumulation of vibrations from this and previous lifetimes that have been less than the qualities of our Real Self.

Between the upper sphere of light and the soul evolving represented by the lower figure of the heart is the Higher Self, also known as the Higher Mental Body, and the Real Self.

It is the Self that we are in a state of becoming through our soul’s evolution. Our souls are mortal but can become immortal as the soul bonds to the Higher Self.

Depending on our spiritual tradition, we can think of the Higher Self as our guardian angel, our inner guru, the voice of conscience—our dear friend.

The violet flame is depicted in the Chart of the Presence around the lower figure. The violet flame is a high-frequency energy of transmutation.

Around the violet flame is the protective white light of God known as the tube of light. When we apply the science of the spoken Word, we can call forth the tube of light for the sealing of our aura from negative energies.

The thread of white light descending from the I AM Presence through the Higher Self to the lower figure in the Chart is the crystal cord which ties us to Spirit.

The crystal cord nourishes the threefold flame of the heart with God’s light. Each plume represents an attribute of God’s consciousness-God’s power, God’s wisdom and God’s love. The threefold flame is about 1/16  of an inch high and is within the secret chamber of the heart chakra. God has given us a spark of Himself.

Chakras & The Human Aura – The Summit Lighthouse

Chakra Colors in Their Purest State

Various schools of thought in the New Age as well as in the past century have prescribed their colors for the chakras. All agree on the seven main chakras: the “thousand petaled” crown chakra (sahasrara), third eye chakra (ajna), throat chakra (vishuddha), heart chakra (anahata), solar plexus chakra (manipura), seat-of-the-soul chakra (svadhishthana), and base of the spine chakra (muladhara).

***

Seven Rays, Seven Chakras

The colors correlate to the seven rays of the causal body, which you see illustrated in the Chart of the Presence as seven color bands, spheres within spheres surrounding the I AM Presence (the upper figure in the Chart of Your Divine Self).

I AM Presence chart, the Real Self
Seven flames of God’s consciousness, seven rays of the Christ in the masculine and the feminine principle, are experienced through the seven chakras beginning with the T’ai chi, the white-fire core of God, the Alpha to Omega, which is the whirling center of every chakra.

This becomes the focal point for the birth of the I AM Presence. Out of the I AM Presence comes forth the light cascading over the crystal cord through the Christ mind, through the threefold flame of the Christ. That light is anchored within your heart chakra in the threefold flame.

The color of each chakra reveals which ray from the causal body that chakra is intended to release. Ideally each chakra vibrates on the same wavelength as its corresponding sphere of the causal body, ‘as Above, so below.’

Your aura is the energy field that is God. It contains God. It reflects God.

When your aura is filled with light, it is filled with him. And therefore, the auric field and the temple together are the habitation of the Most High God. The sense of the sacredness of life enables us to keep the flame of purity — the sense of reverence, the sense that where I AM God is.

Violet Flame: Origins & Nature – El Morya on the Origin & Nature of the Violet Flame @ Summit Lighthouse

Apophysis Digital Art – Violet Flame by Kim Sy Ok @ Fine Art America

****

Violet Flame: Origins and Nature

The violet flame is the key to individual and world transmutation. It works in microcosmic and macrocosmic worlds, from the smallest particle of matter to molecule to mind to materialization in man and mundane circles.

El Morya on the Origin and Nature of the Violet Flame

The violet flame comes forth from the violet ray, that aspect of the white light that is called the seventh ray. It is indeed the seventh-ray aspect of the Holy Spirit.  Just as the sunlight passing through a prism is refracted into the rainbow of the seven color rays, so through the consciousness of the Holy Spirit the light of the Christ is refracted for mankind’s use in the planes of Matter.

Each of the seven rays is a concentrated, activating force of the light of God having a specific color and frequency. Each ray can also manifest as a flame of the same color and vibration. The application of the flame results in a specific action of the Christ in body and soul, mind and heart.

Your Real Self, the I AM Presence and violet flameHow does a ray become a flame, and specifically how does the violet ray become the violet flame?

When you invoke the violet flame, it comes forth from the heart of your I AM Presence as a ray of light that is violet in color. That ray descends like a powerful sunbeam from its source in the Great Central Sun to what is called the plane of invocation. Wherever you may be in the universe, in whatever socket of consciousness you find yourself, the level from which you invoke the light of God is defined as the plane of invocation.

An invocation is a call to light that is transmitted from your heart to the heart of God instantaneously. The response comes forth on the return current.  When the violet ray descends from your I AM Presence to the plane of invocation, a violet flame springs up.

Simply put, the flame is an intensification of a light ray that has been stepped up by the fervor of your heart’s call and the zeal of the Lord’s response.  The phenomenon brings to mind the physical counterpart: a ray of light from the sun passed through a magnifying glass causing an object to burst into flame.

Hydrogen atom bathed in purifying lightWhen you invoke the violet flame for the healing of a specific problem, this is how it works. It envelops each atom of your being individually. Instantaneously a polarity is set up between the nucleus of the atom (which, being Matter, assumes the negative pole) and the white-fire core of the flame (which, being Spirit, assumes the positive pole).

The dual action of the light in the nucleus of the atom and the light in the enveloping violet flame establishes an oscillation that causes the untransmuted densities to be dislodged from between the electrons.  As this substance is loosened, at non-physical, or “meta-physical,” dimensions of matter the electrons begin to vibrate with an increased amount of energy, throwing the misqualified substance into the violet flame.

On contact with this fiery essence of freedom’s flame, the misqualified energy is transmuted and God’s energy is restored to its native purity.  Relieved of the patterns of imperfection and restored to the plus-minus balance of Alpha and Omega, this energy of the Holy Spirit is returned to the individual’s Causal Body, where it is stored until he elects to use it once again to bring forth the noble work of the Christ “on earth as it is in heaven.”

This alchemy takes place on the material plane though not necessarily in the objective “physical” plane; for every atom of substance has its counterpart in the astral, mental and etheric compartments of the matter universe as well as in the spiritual octaves of light.

The I AM Presence and Your Life’s Purpose @ The Summit Lighthouse

The I AM Presence and Your Life’s Purpose

This excerpt is from the dictation Life’s Purpose and the Divine Plan by the Queen of Light published in the 1970 Pearl of Wisdom Vol. 13 No. 3.


How is it that man fails to recognize that he was originally created in the image and likeness of God, that he was originally endowed with virtue and purity of purpose? Now, simply because the individual has misconstrued purpose and lived according to the dictum of the carnal mind, does not in itself preclude the possibility of the divine existence.

We are talking about two distinct phases of man’s existence: the eternal, or infinite phase, and the finite phase. The infinite phase has unlimited possibilities for soul expansion. But the finite phase also affords a certain freedom of expression. It manifests a God seekingness and a human seekingness. Out of this duality man must make his choices.

By understanding that there is a supreme purpose and that that purpose can be known and served, man is better able to understand the design of the universe. He is more endowed with the capacity to utilize the power of his vision, of his hearing, and of the spiritual senses to precipitate higher causes.

Nevertheless, through what has been called free will man can manifest any human quality he desires and lead a wholly selfish existence. Such an existence is bound to enervate the soul because of the very laws which separate the human consciousness from the divine. The moment an individual begins to serve himself, to determine that all that he does will be subject to the functions of the human ego, whether his own or another’s, without recognizing the needs of the Christ in every man and the purposes of the divine plan to be fulfilled, his creative endowment cannot help but be bound by the return of his own misqualified energy.

The Secret Key to the Fulfillment of Individual Purpose

The secret key to the fulfillment of individual purpose in God is to be found in the invocation of cosmic grace, in the invocation of faith in what has been called the invisible world. This world need not remain invisible. It has been called invisible because the senses have become inverted to gaze only upon the imperfection of the physical planes. Man has not recognized the perfection of the spiritual spheres. He has not recognized the perfection of his own God Presence. In fact, during centuries of embodiments he has not even known of the existence of that Presence.

Now it is up to us, who have been endowed with an understanding of the law of the I AM, individualized in the Presence of every child of God, to unveil the higher purpose. From time immemorial the blind who have led the blind have succeeded in promoting forms of religion based on superstition that have assuaged human needs without actually supplying man with the basic laws of his own being that would lead to his freedom and self-mastery.

But in the Chart of the Presence revealed by the Brotherhood of Light, the manifestations of the God Self (the Higher Self), the Holy Christ Self, and the human or lower self are perceived as three who agree in one. Through meditation upon this trinity man recognizes, at last, that the human monad has the capacity, being at the opposite pole from the Divine Self, to obtain grace from the equipoise of the Christ, the Universal Mediator, and thus to manifest for all time, point by point, the magnificent facets of the law, ‘as above so below’.

If man manifests below, he also manifests above. If he manifests above, he also manifests below. Therefore, he should understand that the physical self is the potter’s mold into which a tremendous outpouring of divine grace continuously flows. Thus the lower self is sent forth into the time span, into the human vector, to pose an opportunity for the Spirit to manifest and to complete the destiny of the individual lifestream.

Violet Flame – An Ancient Healing Tool

The violet flame can be used for its spiritual healing effects. Disease in the body isn’t just caused by germs. More and more we are learning that mental, emotional and spiritual states can greatly influence our health. If something in our lives is out of balance, our physical well-being is at risk. This is where the Violet Flame can help.

Violet Flame for Spiritual Healing

Perhaps you have been in several troublesome relationships, or have a profound sadness gnawing at your heart, or maybe you experience a deep and elusive fear that comes from nowhere. We now know that if these situations persist, you have a strong likelihood of becoming ill.

For centuries, Eastern and Western spiritual adepts have used a secret tool to promote positive, healing energy. Called the violet flame, it is an invisible, spiritual energy that appears violet to those who have developed their spiritual vision. It is not necessary to actually see the violet flame for it to work.

For those who know how to use it, the violet flame changes negative energy into positive, which makes it an effective tool for healing.  And, just about anyone can learn how to use it to improve any aspect of life.

Five Ways to Use the Violet Flame:

1. Revitalize a personal relationship or heal non-forgiveness by visualizing the violet flame around both of you.

2. Direct the violet light into any physical condition that needs healing, visualizing the violet flame all around the cause.

3. Saturate all aspects of an upcoming meeting at work: see the people, the agenda and the outcomes all radiating with violet light and recite a violet flame mantra for the event.

4. See your household, your neighborhood, the town where you live, the nation, even the entire planet saturated in violet flame while giving a simple violet flame decree.

5. Watch the news on television and as the images of war and disaster flash on your screen, see them inundated in violet flame and give a violet flame decree directing it into that event for the best outcome possible in any situation.

Violet Flame Decree

Heart violet flame mantraTry reciting this violet flame decree as you visualize the situation you desire to impact:

Violet Fire, thou Love divine,
Blaze within this heart of mine!
Thou art Mercy forever true,
Keep me always in tune with you (3x)

Violet Flame Mantras

Examples of how to direct the violet light into specific conditions by repeating a mantra:

I AM a being of violet fire, I AM the purity God desires.My kidney is an organ of violet fire, my kidney is the purity God desires.

Or expand your area of healing and transmutation to loved ones, your organization or business, your city and country:

___________ (person’s name) is a being of violet fire, ___________ (person’s name) is the purity God desires.

___________ (organization’s name) is an organization of violet fire, ___________ (organization’s name) is the purity God desires.

___________ (city’s name) is a city of violet fire, ___________ (city’s name) is the purity God desires.
