For the Love of God, on Illumination’s Flame,
I Kuthumi, have found it necessary to wait no longer to deliver my instructions on the Law of Invocation, so that those students of the Ascended Masters would have the greatest opportunity to maximize every erg of Light that flows through them in adoration to God.
Through the course of the evolution of mankind, there have been many kinds of devotion given to the One God, through prayer — through meditation. But, as long as there has been a history on this planet, there has been the chant. The chant, Beloved Ones, becomes the song of the Heart, and the song becomes the Music of the Spheres. Adoration to God is invoked from the Flame of the Heart. It is invoked through all of the God Qualities that are availed to the student through the momentum of their Causal Body of Light. The chant releases the Fire that propels the God Qualities into action. The rhythm of the Flame on your Heart creates the tonality and vibration of your offering into the Spirit and the matter world.
This momentum of Light that goes forward into the Earth to manifest God in the physical, is part of your adoration and devotion to God. For as it is flowing, it must go through the Flame on the Altar of your Heart, thereby affording the greatest opportunity for you to utilize and master the sciences of the use of Light and Energy through the chakras as they are taught by the Ascended Masters.
I am speaking today of the giving forth of Adorations, Affirmations, and Decrees. There are some who do not understand the necessity for giving the calls out loud. Let me remind you that as the sound of your voice goes forth, it acts on every particle of Life. It accelerates the action of God — the very cell structure of all that it contacts is affected. This is why some sounds can be irritating to you, while others can be peaceful and calming.
By giving the calls you can accelerate the action of God at the level of the cell structure in the physical. During meditation, as the thought goes forward into the very inner structure of the being and impresses its wavelengths on all aspects of the inner world of the student, this likewise will affect change. But, that change, beloved ones, first and foremost, will affect only the surroundings in which you are present, until there is manifest enough Light (meaning "enough energy") behind that meditation, to propel it forward into the outer ethers, where those thoughtforms move to their destination. This is why the more energized the thought with the emotion (energy-in-motion), the more it is likely to become a reality, whether it be for good or for ill.
As the student places their attention on God, the energy going forth from the Heart to God creates a figure eight flow. This has been known for some time, that where the attention is placed, not only does your energy flow, but the return current comes back to its source. And so you connect with the figure eight flow wherever your attention is placed. When you are giving the calls, the Affirmations and Decrees with a figure eight flow of your attention to the Being of God within you, and there is also a corresponding figure eight flow that occurs where the energy and Light is propelled, this creates a squaring or a fourfold action. So, not only is there one figure eight flow between you and your God Presence, there is another between you and the object of your Decrees. When you consider that the focal point of your Heart is the nexus between both figure eight patterns, the Heart — where the Threefold Flame of your God Presence resides — then also becomes part of a triangle or trinity. This is the Divine Trinity that is invoked when manifesting the fullness of God in Action through your Decrees, Affirmations, Prayers, Chants and Songs of the Heart.
There are many students in the West who do not understand the necessity for Decrees. Yes, it has long been established that many of the civilizations that have lived before, have used Prayers, Chants and Invocations allowed in their time as a course of religious devotion. But why, in this day and age with so much study of the metaphysical, is there a great attention placed by the Ascended Masters on the imperative need for Decrees, given in unison, in large groups or small, or individually; given in a certain rhythm and certain pitch?
You may already be familiar with the instruction relative to the connection with the Music of the Spheres and toning within your own being to resonate with the Causal Body of your I AM Presence, hence establishing a resonant tone with the Causal Body of the Great Central Sun. But this, sometimes, is too vast, too lofty a thought, and understanding, for some to realize or accept for themselves. And, we continue to hear from the students at inner levels, "Give us the practical understanding. How do we implement it, here and now? What is the direct cause and effect?"
There are some who are under the misconception that if they decree for long periods of time once a year, once a month or once a week, that this is sufficient unto itself to balance karma, to fulfill the design, the blueprint of the inner being and bring the Light into their manifestations in the physical. I tell you this is not so. There are times that must be called upon by the Brotherhood for a more than ordinary release of Fire to go forward for specific actions through Decrees and Affirmations. But, I would like to inform you that it is important for calls to be given daily, for the very outcome of your Victory on the Path requires it, most especially in the Western Hemisphere. And now as communication is so widespread and there is such an homogenizing of the entire planet, I extend that requirement as well to the Eastern Hemisphere. For, the old techniques of long ago, that were once viable to bring a student into adeptship and carry them through to their Ascension, are found wanting in this new day and age with such an exaggeration of the human consciousness and agitation into all matters of existence on the planet.
Why are the daily applications necessary? Think, for a moment of all of the thoughts, all of the human desire momentum within the world — perhaps right where you sit, right where you are interacting at this very moment. Contemplate, if you will, yesterday’s actions and thoughts. Were they all pure in nature? Or were they filled with a tendency toward human equations of desire — of egotism, self conceit or self concern? Was there any measure of vanity or pride existing within your nature? Were there any prejudices inherent within the thoughts and the feeling world? Some of these can be very subtle — most are. I spoke over a hundred years ago on these very issues. Saint Germain has addressed the necessity for those aspects of human consciousness to go into the Flame in order for there to be an enlightened Community. If any of the appearances of human creation were present in your world yesterday or even today, would it not stand to reason there was a necessity for a release of Sacred Fire into that substance — into your world? If you wait a week, a month, or longer to invoke that Flame, how long do you think it will be before those momentums have an overriding effect on every aspect of your life, your attention, your figure eight flow with your I AM Presence?
Subtleties can creep in, so unaware to the outer consciousness — for you must understand that the mind has learned how to survive many, many embodiments. It has learned how to hold on to those human conditions and creations. It has learned the art of self preservation. Very small aspects of momentums that you think have long ago gone into the Flame, can still reside as old records hidden from the outer awareness. You may consider that you have transmuted certain energies in your world, but what of the record and old momentum of that lifetime some 200 hundred years ago that suddenly surges into manifestation into your world for redemption.
Let us say for argument’s sake, you decide not to give the Violet Flame or your calls and Affirmations for several days, and during that time that old momentum comes to the fore and says, "I am here. I am ready to move into action again, to claim my rightful place." If your world is not filled with enough Light of the Sacred Fire, who is to say that this is not the rightful place of that energy? Will there be enough God Reality in your world to say, "Thus far and no further?" A prepared student of the Light would say, "This is not God Reality — this is unreality and you go into the Flame." And, by the invocation, by the attention with the figure eight flow on God, on that day, that record would be no more.
I do not know how to teach the sincere student, any more emphatically of the necessity of giving the Calls daily. It remains to be seen if there are those who are ready to put their human creation into the Flame. But, I will have done my part and I will have given the Teaching. I will continue to give this Teaching as long as there is one individual who will hear and respond. But, we do tire, at inner levels, hearing that there are too many Decrees required, or there is too much demand that spoken dynamic Decrees be given. I would like for you to consider that perhaps those students who feel the burden and weight of giving Decrees, have not been connecting at all with their God Presence. Perhaps those Calls and those Decrees were not focusing the attention on the Light of God, so that the Light of God could, in fact, create a figure eight flow into the condition- cause, effect, record and memory, to transmute it, to move into action and to cause change in the world of form and of the student. Many do not realize how very specific is this science.
There are those who are students on the path who entertain much pride and vanity that is born from prejudices that set up a standard of egotism in their world and allows for the continuation of their human consciousness through the lower vehicles. As long as the subplanes of the mental body are in control, God is not in control and God is not active. For God to be active, there must be a submission of the mental body to the mind of God, and to those Higher Octaves. Those lower subplanes of mental miasma are not God Reality — not fit for the alchemy in the Heart of the student of the Ascended Masters. It is not Reality for a Lightbearer or for any Son or Daughter of God. The Light must first be invoked from the Heart of the Lightbearer to the Heart of God, The Mighty I AM Presence. In return, the Light streams forth from the Heart of God back through the Heart to the Lightbearer, and thence to the focal point of the extended Flame that affects the change that has been invoked.
Beloved ones, those outer world extensions of your calls bring about God Good in the world. The Light expands the very essence of God wherever it falls — upon all that it contacts. And you will know when you have connected with the objective of your efforts, for the return current will reach your heart, and if you will allow the Heart to register that current, you will know the good that has been accomplished. No one, from that point on, will have to tell you that it is necessary to Decree, for the Joy of your Heart will propel you into action to give the Decrees and the Affirmations. Yes, Joy will make your Heart desire to engage in the Light and the Work of God! The Heart will want to quiet all of the sounds of the human conditions coming up for transformation that clamor to disturb The Great Silence. There isno such state of being as a continual momentum, that goes on and on and on, unsupported, without the engagement, consciously reinforced energetically, by the Lightbearer.
Contemplate for a moment, what I have said. The Light of God, invoked for good or ill, is the cause. The qualification of that cause is determined by the Lightbearer. Even those who have lost the ability to connect with their God Presence because of the vast abyss between the subplanes of the human consciousness and the Divine Consciousness, must also recognize that there is still the requirement of the Light of God to accomplish all things whether right or wrong, light or dark. Much that comes about by the Light is many times a Grace through the intercession of the Ascended Masters, the Angelic Kingdom or the Mighty I AM Presence of the unknowing, very sensitive yet giving Heart of some Lightbearers.
Invoking the Light into your world on a daily basis will protect you from having that Light squandered and taken against your free will — for your free will has resolved to be in action. It will already have determined the right use of that Light and the engagement of that Light. And, there will not be Light for ill use by any other. The benefits of engaging in the figure eight flow with God far outweigh all other modes of living. This is the practical application of the Law. This is scientific, metaphysical, if you will, but metaphysical in the Heart of God, not absent God; not so mechanical that it is not saturated by the Light of God and the very Consciousness that is behind the cause is God.
Many decades ago, Saint Germain, through his Messenger, Godfre, gave the instruction and the Teaching regarding giving Decrees and Affirmations. As you are aware, that instruction was simply given and the obedient students responded. Those who put the calls into action with pure intent, saw the response not only in their own lives but in the Activity. Throughout the years, in other Activities, the Calls and the Decrees took on a different aspects, different momentums not intended by Us, and many of which have taken students away from their true identity and the Light.
This is why, when you give the calls, there must be the invocation to the I AM. There must be the constant reminder to the consciousness that it is the I AM that is working. For, in reality, you are working on your own psychology through the giving of the Decrees and the Affirmations. It is a retraining of outworn momentums by the chemicalization of the Light that is necessary, most especially for those who live in the Western Hemisphere who are very intellectually inclined and process everything in their world through the mental body. For those retraining sessions, the constancy of the attention on the I AM, on the God Presence in Action, is literally changing the very cell structure of the conscious memory into patterns and blueprints that correspond with the Christ Mind and the Divine Plan for your Lifestream. If the Calls are not given daily, the activity of the conscious mind in the lower subplanes, far outweighs the momentum and the frequency with which those releases of Fire are able towork on the memory body. It is important, for the student who wishes to excel on the path, to understand that even a few Calls daily are better than no Calls at all, and Calls should be given even more frequently during the day, if there is not a longer period of time available to engage in the Fiery work for Christ Attunement.
You will also discover, that the Joy that is released from the Heart of God by the Love that is extended to the student and the love that the student is able to extend out to others, far outweighs any self-gratification from any mortal means known to mankind. The bliss of this union and being present in the central point of the figure eight flow of the Trinity that I have spoken of, will allow for the acceleration to the Heart of God in the greatest Joy.
Approach your decrees as a scientific experiment, if you must, and see how they work; see how they become the very fabric of the God Reality of your world and no amount of clamoring from any negativity or any outer source that is foreign to the Peace and serenity of your God Presence will be able to take you away from your point of center and true desiring of God Reality.
You will have the fulfillment of the building of the antahkarana of Light to fulfill your Divine Plan, to have the associations that you require and to enter into the Sacred Labor that you as a son and daughter of God were destined to be participating in on a daily basis.
I, Kuthumi, have spoken to you from my Office as World Teacher. And I strongly urge all those who call themselves students of the Ascended Masters to study this instruction so that they will have the full understanding of the opportunity afforded them, most especially in a time when there is so much in the World to command the attention, and so many areas in which one may apply their time. Time is the essence, the essence, Beloved Ones, of your ability to engage with God.
Devoted to the Christ In You,
Carolyn: Kuthumi would like to give you an opportunity to have explained any aspect of His instruction that is not immediately understood, so that when this recording goes out and for future times, there are no areas of confusion. I know that for many of the students that have been studying for some time, it will be apparent what Kuthumi was referencing. But, consider for a moment that you are a brand new student on the Path, hearing about decreeing for the first time.
Monroe and I will now address your questions but before we begin, I would like to speak to you regarding a confusion in the area of marathon Decrees that has been brought to our attention. Please consider, if you will, your actions relative to giving certain marathon Decree sessions, in lieu of the daily applications. I think Kuthumi made it very clear that that’s really not the best use of your energy to accomplish the work that you want to accomplish. He does say that there are times when the Brotherhood will call for such sessions to counterbalance certain releases of activities of a negative nature on the planet. There are times when that is necessary. It’s also necessary to establish a receptive forcefield for the Ascended Masters when they are coming to deliver their Word and their Light.
Last night, I received a call from someone who wanted to know if it was true that we could balance our weekly allotment of karma in one, three hour session of Violet Flame during the week. The answer to this question is emphatically "no." I think Kuthumi addressed why. If any of the students have heard this idea circulating, they can certainly help to enlighten other students on the path.
Monroe: One of the assignments that has fallen to Carolyn and me, as part of our role as Messengers, is to sweep away a lot of superstitious debris that has built up around the Teachings of the Ascended Masters over the decades. In this regard, I have counseled students recently, that before they give forth instruction to one another, either in the capacity of a teacher or just friend to friend, representing certain concepts to be genuine Tenets of Cosmic Law, they need to verify their sources. In other words, be able to point to "chapter and verse" of a Dictation or Discourse delivered through a reliable Messenger, upon which to base the information they are passing on to other students. At the 1998 July Class Saint Germain referenced the Twentieth Century Lineage of Messengers and accepted Sources that could be relied upon by the students in this regard.
As the students and the whole Activity continue to grow, we certainly want more and more advocates of the Truth of the Law. But the responsible and wise devotee will adopt the discipline of verifying their sources, referring back to a Dictation through one of the accepted Sources or a Discourse or a Dictation through The Temple. Needless to say, with a burgeoning student body and a flowering of those with a mission to minister to others, there is going to be an ongoing need for people to be spontaneous and creative, which is all well and good and to be encouraged. But it needs to be built strictly on the firm foundation of that which rises to the level of Ascended Master Law.
We want to give everyone the personal Freedom for their own path. But when students come to our Conferences and Seminars, they’re here for the Teachings as the Masters delivered through their Anointed Representatives. As Kuthumi mentioned in his Dictation, over the decades, there was a shift away from the focus and the orientation on the God Presence, and of a falling away from the practice of regularly focusing the attention on the God Presence which has occurred with previous Ascended Master Activities.
Carolyn: This is the expanded meaning of Kuthumi’s instruction during the Dictation regarding the figure eight flow of energy. First you connect with the Electronic Body of your God Presence with the Threefold Flame on the Altar of the Heart. Thus you establish a vertical figure eight flow in that direction. Next the Threefold Flame extends horizontally to the target of your Decree work. For example, say you were calling for world peace, or for a particular healing for a group of individuals or one individual, or you were invoking Violet Flame for the elemental kingdom. As you are connecting with your God Presence, you are establishing that figure eight flow this way (vertical motion), you are also establishing a figure eight flow out to the focus of your attention (horizontal motion). And so, the Light is all going right through the Threefold Flame of your Heart into the heart of the God Presence. There are times when the Light, straight from the Electronic Body of the God Presence, the Light Rays go forth directed from the Electronic Body without passing through your Heart Flame on the way to their destination.
Monroe: The third figure-eight pattern is established along the hypotenuse or long arm of the triangle, connecting the point where the Ray from the Presence meets the Ray that has been extended from your Heart. The authority of the Ray from the Presence, of course, comes forth, because you have made the Invocation, you have extended your Heart to that location horizontally across the Earth.
