Who are You? Do You Know Your Divine Reality?
The Ascended Masters teach that the purpose of your soul’s evolution on earth is multi-purpose:
- – to grow in self-mastery
- – to balance your karma
- – to fulfill your mission on earth
- – to make your ascension in the Light
How are these goals attained?
You must first understand your original Divine Nature, as opposed to who you think you are in the material and physical planes. At some point in our evolution as a soul, we fell from God’s consciousness, left the Garden of Eden, so to speak. The goal is to return. It generally takes many embodiments to do this. The Ascended Masters teach that, in general, one lifetime is not sufficient to return to that state of God-consciousness before our fall from grace.
The point of all of our incarnations is to gradually return to being the Real Self that we are, to be our Divine Self. We were not created in sin; we fell into sin. And God, in His mercy, has provided a way for us to transmute the karma that has accrued to our record as a soul. This way is through re-embodiment, reincarnation.
The Nature of Your Divine Self
You must understand who you ‘really’ are, the nature of your Divine Self, also called the I AM THAT I AM or the I AM Presence. The Ascended Masters teach that this concept is the most important insight that you, as an individual, can have in life. Many religions understand and teach this.
For example, to Hindus, this Divine Self is called Brahma. To Buddhists, it is known as the Dharmakaya. Christians and Jews, of course, call this Self, God the Father. God the Father is a part of your divine nature. He is not a separate identity outside yourself. That is what the chart of the Presence shows.
The chart of your Divine Self shows that each of us has an I AM Presence, which is the individualization, or a spark of God’s Presence in us. We also each have a Higher Self and a soul. To become united with the I AM Presence, each of us is destined first to become one with the Higher Self, whether we call the Higher Self the Christ, the Buddha, the Tao or the Atman. Once this is achieved, then the goal is to become one with the I AM Presence.
Let’s talk about how this can be done by describing this chart of the I AM Presence.
In the upper portion of the chart depicted above, you will see a sphere of light with seven colors, known as rays. These are rays of God’s consciousness or qualities of God’s Being. Have you ever noticed a ray of sunlight passing through a prism? It refracts into the seven colors of the rainbow. The same is true of a beam of spiritual light. When spiritual light refracts, it manifests as seven rays, each with a specific color. These rays, respectively, are manifestations of the consciousness of God.:
- Blue – Power, Perfection, and God’s Will
- Pink – Divine Love, Adoration, Devotion
- Yellow – Illumination, Education, and Wisdom
- Green – Precipitation, Truth, and Healing
- Purple and Gold – Resurrection, Ministration, and Service
- Violet – Freedom, Transmutation, Mercy, and Forgiveness
The figure in the upper chart represents ‘YOU’ as your Divine Self. The spheres of colors or rays around you are called the Causal Body, and are depictions of the treasures you have stored up in Heaven, the ‘mansions in your Father’s house. In other words, they represent all good you have ever done on each of the rays of God’s Consciousness. Your record in Heaven shows how much Love, Wisdom, Power, Justice, etc. you have manifested from lifetime to lifetime. As you embody more of each of these God-Qualities, you increase the size of each of your spheres. You manifest more ‘treasures in Heaven.’
Your Causal Body, the 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 appearance of separation is due to our human consciousness, our sense of limitation, and due to the accumulation of vibrations from this, and previous lifetimes that are less than the highest qualities of our Real Self. Fortunately, we have a mediator to assist us perfecting our being, the Holy Christ Self.
You see in this chart, the Causal Body is above, your soul below, and in the middle is a mediator, the portion of your Self than works with you and guides you. The upper figure cannot know imperfection, because it represents God consciousness. The lower figure knows imperfection. Thus the middle figure assists us to navigate between these planes of spiritual existence.
The middle figure in the chart is the Mediator between God and man. 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.”
You can also 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. This portion of yourself is your soul’s advocate before God. In the Teachings of the Ascended Masters, this middle figure is often called the Holy Christ Self, the self that has been anointed before God to assist our soul evolution.
The lower figure in the chart is your soul. It is evolving in time and space. It is the part of you that is mortal—but it can become immortal.
Around your soul is a spiritual flame, called the Violet Flame. It is high-frequency energy, the flame of the Holy Spirit.
Around the Violet Flame is the protective white light of God known as the Tube of Light. The Tube of Light is a wall of protection for your soul that you can call forth through prayer and through the action of decrees (repetitive, spoken prayers).
Here is an example of a decree that you can give to call forth this Tube of Light daily. First thing in the morning, is a good time to set your day with a wall of protection.
Beloved I Am Presence bright,
Round me seal your tube of light
From Ascended Master flame
Called forth now in God’s own name.
Let it keep my temple free
From all discord sent to me.
I Am calling forth Violet Fire
To blaze and transmute all desire,
Keeping on in freedom’s name
Til I AM one with the Violet Flame. (3x)
You will also notice in the chart that there is a shaft of white light connecting all of your bodies. This shaft is known as the crystal cord or the silver cord. It is like a spiritual umbilical cord, the lifeline that ties you to Spirit.
Within your heart, is a secret chamber that houses your threefold flame. This is the God-Spark that keeps you tied to God the Father. It is a very real spiritual flame about 1/16 of an inch in height, 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. This threefold flame is what separates us from animals. As a son or daughter of God, or as a child of the Light, God has given you that spark of Himself.
This threefold flame endows your being with consciousness, with self-awareness. It is this divine spark that attunes you to God, that keeps you moral, loving, and kind – and that causes you, on some level, to desire the union of your soul with God. This flame is blue (power), yellow (wisdom), and pink (love). As we increase in God-Consciousness, we expand and balance the plumes of this flame so that they are equal.
When your soul concludes a lifetime on earth, the I AM Presence withdraws the silver cord, and your threefold flame returns to the heart of your Holy Christ Self. Your soul gravitates to the highest level of consciousness to which she has attained in all of her past incarnations to await re-birth or to attain the ascension.
Your soul is the non-permanent aspect of your being, and your divine purpose in each lifetime is to put on more and more of God’s consciousness (develop on each of the rays) until you can make the atom of our being permanent. This is done through the ritual of the ascension.
In the process towards the ascension, your soul does the following:
- balances her karma throughout many embodiments
- bonds to your Holy Christ Self
- fulfills her divine plan
- returns at last to the living Presence of the I AM THAT I AM
Thus the cycles of incarnation are complete. Although there are instances of a physical ascension, whereby the physical body ascends into Heaven after balancing between 95% to 100% of one’s karma, the dispensation of the Aquarian age only requires that 51% of your karma be balanced. In this way, your soul can balance the remaining 49% after the ascension in the Heaven world. The ascension is the goal of life for your soul.
In attaining union with God, you will have become the Incorruptible One, a permanent atom in the Body of God. As you can see, this Chart of Your Divine Self is a perfect diagram of yourself—past, present, and future.
Good fortune in your journey to Oneness with God.
