1. Set aside a time each day to give violet flame.
You can give violet-flame decrees anywhere, anytime-in your car, while doing chores or before going to bed. In fact, simply repeating a violet-flame mantra anytime you feel tense, tired or irritated can make the difference. But you will get the greatest benefit from the violet flame if you set aside at least fifteen minutes a day to decree without interruption.
It's best to decree in a place dedicated to spiritual work, such as a chapel or a well-lit, clean and aired room. Poor lighting, dust, untidiness and stale air impede the flow of spiritual energy.
On your altar you can put candles, crystals, flowers and photographs of saints, Ascended Masters and your loved ones.
2. Begin your violet-flame session with a prayer.
Before you begin your decrees, give a prayer, or invocation, asking the Ascended Masters, angels and elementals to come and help you.
The elementals are the nature spirits of fire, air, water and earth who are responsible for taking care of our planet. Elementals who represent the fire element are called salamanders; those who represent the air element, sylphs; those who represent the water element, undines; those who represent the earth element, gnomes. They are only too happy to help us clean up both our auras and the planet with the violet flame.
3. Invoke protection before you start using the violet flame.
The Masters teach that when you bring forth more light, darkness is drawn to it, as if by a magnet. So you need to seal your aura with the white and blue protective energy. One of the best ways to do this is to invoke the tube of light and the protection of Archangel Michael.
Give your tube of light decree each morning and repeat it as necessary throughout the day. As you give it, visualize the dazzling white light from your I AM Presence, the Presence of God above you, forming an impenetrable wall of light around you.
Your prayer to Archangel Michael can be as simple as "Archangel Michael, Help me! help me! help me!" As the Archangel of the first ray, Archangel Michael embodies the qualities of faith, protection, perfection and the will of God. Archangel Michael has personally saved my life a dozen times that I know of and probably thousands of times that I am not aware of.
So give your decrees with joy and gusto and know that when you call to Archangel Michael and his legions of angels, they will immediately be at your side.
4. Begin your violet-flame decree with a preamble.
The preamble to a decree is like an invitation. In it we lovingly ask the violet-flame beings-Ascended Masters and angels-for help and guidance.
We generally begin our decrees by saying, "In the name of the beloved mighty victorious Presence of God, I AM in me, and my very own beloved Holy Christ Self..." and include our favourite Masters and saints. Our connection to them is through our I AM Presence and Holy Christ Self.
The I AM Presence is our permanent, perfect God Presence. The Holy Christ Self is our Higher Self and inner teacher who initiates and guides our soul on her path to union with God.
5. Give the decree slowly at first, then speed up as you give more repetitions of the decree.
The first time you give a decree, you will want to repeat it slowly and deliberately. Endow each word with intense love for God. There is great power in giving a decree slowly. But there is a different power that comes as you gradually increase the speed and raise the pitch of the decree.
Mark Prophet used to compare this acceleration to a train. It starts out "chug...chug" and pretty soon it's going "chug-a-chug-a" and then "chug-chug-chug-chug!" The faster it goes, the greater the action.
As you increase the speed of your decrees, you will find that they are more effective in raising your vibration. The increase in speed should not be artificial. It should feel natural to you; the decree should almost speed itself up.
If you try any of the Save the World with Violet Flame tapes, you will hear the correct way to increase your speed.
6. Use visualizations to assist your spiritual work.
Most people don't see the violet flame in action with their physical eyes. But when you close your eyes and concentrate on the energy center between your eyebrows, you can sometimes "see" the violet flame at work with your inner eye.
To people who have developed their spiritual sight, the violet flame looks like fire, in colours ranging from dark indigo and brilliant amethyst to violet pink.
You may see these flames burning through karmic debris.
Sometimes it helps to imagine this debris as chunks of wood or chunks of tarry substance breaking off from your electronic belt and crackling in the flame. They tumble and bounce and then disappear in a puff of white smoke.
Once you have memorized some of the violet-flame decrees, you can close your eyes and try the following visualizations.
A Violet-Flame Pillar
When you invoke the violet flame, you can visualize yourself surrounded by a violet-flame pillar about six feet in diameter and about nine feet high. It can extend from beneath your feet to well over the top of your head.
See the violet flame come to life as if you were looking at a movie. The flames rise and pulsate around you in different shades of purple, pink and violet. Around this violet-flame pillar, you can see your tube of light, an even bigger pillar of white light that protects and seals the violet flame.
Keep this visualization in mind while you are decreeing and throughout the day. Every time you think of it, you are reinforcing this image.
Healing by the Whirling Violet-Flame Spheres
This visualization can help heal your four lower bodies. As you give a violet-flame decree, imagine a large sphere of violet light forming around you. As you speed up the decree, see the sphere begin to whirl like a tilt-a-whirl at an amusement park. See it spinning faster and faster. This visualization steps up the violet flame and accelerates the vibration of your cells, atoms and electrons. Next see smaller violet-flame spheres superimposed over each organ in your body. See the action of the violet-flame spheres removing any darkness that may be the basis of disease and consuming it instantly. Then see the violet flame perfecting your organs. Ask your I AM Presence and Holy Christ Self and the violet-flame angels to sustain these violet-flame spheres around you throughout the day. Reinforce your request with periodic revisualization of the spheres. Experiment with this visualization and see how it makes you feel.
7. Use violet flame every day.
One of the best times to give your decrees is in the early morning. You'll find that if you decree first thing in the morning, your day will go much smoother. You can make a specific request for the transmutation of whatever mental, emotional or physical problems you are working on in your life. You can work on relationships with your friends and loved ones.
8. Use the violet flame to heal the records of past lives.
After you have been giving the violet flame for some time, you may find yourself recalling past lives. Recalling a past life is not something to be taken lightly. When you become aware of it, the karma (positive and negative) of that life comes to the surface.
The negative karma is like Pandora's box. Once you open it, you will want to roll up your sleeves, spend your time serving life and make calls to the violet-flame angels each day to transmute the karmic debris. It can take as little as six months of concentrated violet-flame decrees to balance the karma of one past life. This is indeed a great gift that is given to us by Saint Germain.
As you give the violet flame, pictures of past lives may come before your mind. You may see yourself as you were in ages long past. Or you may just have the impression that you were in a particular time or place. If the records are painful--and they usually are because your soul is crying out for resolution--you may feel sadness or regret. But you will also feel liberated because you know that as you give your violet-flame decrees, you are transmuting the records of your past karma.
When you become aware of these memories, do not attempt to suppress them. Instead, focus your attention on the light in your heart. Imagine the memory being saturated with the violet flame until the form disappears. Then let go of the memory and let a bright white sun replace it in your mind's eye.
You may also want to use the eraser visualization. Every time you see those scenes, visualize a giant eraser, like a chalkboard eraser, only violet, rubbing away the picture. After you do this enough times, the memory will stop being painful and gradually fade from the forefront of your mind.
There are two elements you are transmuting when you use the violet flame to deal with past karmic records. The first is the emotional and soul memory of the events that are causing you pain. The second is the karmic energy that binds you to those you have hurt or to those who have hurt you. I like to call this the "cause, effect, record and memory" of karma, which includes all energy that you have tied up in negative thoughts or feelings about the past.
Past-life records are like files on your computer. You need to erase the negative records and memories in order to make room for the positive. As you do this through the violet flame, you are freeing your soul to move on to higher levels of existence.
Psychotherapy gives you keys to understanding yourself and to making better choices in your life. You may gain resolution with someone you know because you've seen a negative record of the past and you've decided to make it positive in this life. When you add violet-flame decrees and service to those you have wronged, the combined action can clear the cause, effect, record and memory of these painful incidents.
And it's only by getting beyond those records that you can clear the way for your soul to receive new opportunities. You can accelerate your soul's progress in this life and thus make your way more quickly to the goal of union with God.
Each time you balance the karma of a certain lifetime, your Higher Self may reveal to you the next past life that you need to tackle-and the next and the next. It's important not to feel burdened by the negative record of a past life. We have all made mistakes in the past or we wouldn't be here today. Forgive yourself and move on. Be grateful that you are here and that you have the opportunity to erase those records with the violet flame.
Once you start, keep on going. One step begins the trek of a thousand miles. Each time you transmute the records of a past life with the violet flame, you gain a new sense of your soul's liberation. And by and by you will realize that you are taking command of your soul's destiny.
9. Expand the scope of your invocations to include cleaning up karmic debris in your house, your neighborhood and the planet.
As you practice directing the violet flame to help others, you can begin to think of your aura as a violet-flame fountain where all whom you meet can come and drink. Remind yourself to always have that violet flame available for someone in need.
Not only does the violet flame dissolve your own karma, but it can also dissolve group or planetary karma that comes from such things as wars or accumulated injustices.
People have different experiences when they use violet-flame decrees. Some repeat them diligently for months before they have any confirmation that the decrees are working. Others get spectacular results the first time they open their mouths.
You can work out your violet-flame routine in communion with your Higher Self. You can add the violet flame to your daily prayers or meditations, whatever they are.
I hope you will know the joy of becoming one of the thousands of people all over the world who have transformed their lives with this miracle solvent-the highest gift of God to the universe.
