9 The Four Elements in the Planes of the Chakras
In order to master the flow of God’s energy through the seven chakras, man and woman ought to consider the mastery of the four elements—of fire, air, water, and earth—as planes of God’s consciousness. For by the mastery of the four elements, you will then gain the mastery of the flow of energy through the four lower bodies as these bodies serve as coordinates for the establishment of the aura of God around the soul.
The four elements, so-called, are merely word matrices used to define the planes of God’s Self-awareness that the individual is capable of realizing through the four lower bodies. Thus the etheric body is the vehicle for the fire element and for man’s realization of God’s awareness of himself as the sacred fire.
The highest frequencies that the individual is capable of realizing in the planes of Mater are focused through this body. The etheric, or memory, body contains both the record of the soul’s evolution in the causal body in the planes of Spirit prior to its descent into Mater and the record of all of its experiences in the lower octaves after the descent.
It is through the heart chakra, where the ascending and descending triangles converge, that the soul learns to exercise the sacred fire and its uses both in the planes of Spirit and in the planes of Mater. By the fire of the heart, man and woman learn the mastery of the etheric cycles of the cosmos that spiral through the etheric body. And by the energies of the heart they do weave the deathless solar body. This is the body into which the etheric body is transformed once the karmic cycles have been fulfilled.
Thus our God who is a consuming fire <1>can be experienced in the planes of Mater through the heart chakra. And it is, of course, the threefold flame anchored in the hidden chamber of the heart that conveys this aspect of the mastery of the Christ consciousness to the soul.
Then, by the mastery and balance of the threefold flame, the disciple is able to magnetize greater and greater portions of this flame into the aura. The balanced manifestation of the threefold flame, together with the infilling of the aura with the sacred fires of the Holy Ghost, prepare the disciple to master the other six chakras through the mental, emotional, and physical bodies.
The air element and God’s awareness of himself in the plane of the mind in and as the Logos are mastered in the mental body through the third eye and the seat-of-the-soul chakra. The frequency of this element is comparable to the wind that “bloweth where it listeth” <2>and to thinking and be-ness whereby the soul affirms “I am,” as the expression of self-identity, drawing the conclusion “therefore I think”—or “I think, therefore I am.”
For the mastery of the emotions—of God’s awareness of himself as energy in motion—and of the water element, the disciple has the opportunity to expand and balance the energies of life and their flow in the emotional body (sometimes called the desire body) through the throat chakra and the solar plexus <3>. But the full mastery of the physical plane and of time and space in Mater is not attained until the disciple gains the mastery of the flow of physical energies in the base-of-the-spine and the crown chakras.
In these two chakras the disciple experiences God’s awareness of himself as Mother and Father united in the physical plane for the bringing-forth of the Christ consciousness. And thus the goal of the adepts of the East who meditate upon the Goddess Kundalini as the white-fire energies of the Mother coiled as the serpent fire in the base of the spine is to raise that energy through all of the chakras and to attain the merging of the energy of the Mother (which otherwise remains locked in the base of the spine) with those of the Father as these are quickened by the divine union of the Alpha-to-Omega spirals in the crown chakra.
Let us consider in this study the mastery of the flow of the sacred fire as it becomes in the throat chakra the waters of the living Word and in the solar plexus the peace-commanding Presence. Beloved Jesus, the Prince of Peace who was the Master of the Piscean age, set the example for all mankind’s mastery of God’s energies in motion.
So great was his mastery of the flow of fire from the heart into these two chakras that he was able to proclaim, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” <4> By this he meant that even though the entire forcefield of the soul’s identity in the planes of Mater, together with the chakras that are used to focus the energies of heaven and earth, might cease to exist, the word of God uttered through his being would remain forever—fixed as stars in the firmament of God’s being.
The mark of the Christed one is the mark of attainment whereby the energies of the chakras below the heart are uplifted and integrated with the energies of the chakras above the heart. Those above the heart carry the masculine polarity of being, and those below the heart carry the feminine polarity. Once the energies of the threefold flame are balanced in the hidden chamber of the heart, the disciple can proceed to balance the points of the interlaced triangles, which are necessary for the disciple’s attainment of the Christ consciousness.
Jesus is known as the Prince of Peace because he balanced the threefold flame and mastered the sixth ray, the energies of purple and gold in the solar-plexus chakra (at the navel). Holding these energies in harmony, he was able to draw upon the reserves of his solar plexus, the place of the sun, to release this energy in the power of the spoken Word.
It was in the balance of the energy flow from the desire body—which in Jesus totally reflected God’s desiring for mankind—to the throat chakra that he was able to speak the word of healing, of forgiveness, of comfort. By the balanced energy flow from the throat chakra to the solar plexus, he gave forth the teaching of the Christ for the Piscean age and spoke the word that raised the dead, cast out the demons, and aligned the entire planetary body with the aura of the Cosmic Christ.
You may, then, visualize the ascending triangle of purple flecked with gold rising from the solar plexus and merging in the throat chakra with the descending triangle of royal blue for the fulfillment of the spirals of Alpha and Omega in the release of the spoken Word. These color rays, the blue and the purple, do focus the action of the beginning and the ending that seals the sacred fire breath in a matrix of completion specifically for precipitation in Mater.
If the energies in motion of these two chakras are perfectly balanced, then when the disciple speaks the word “Be thou made whole!” it is done, even as the fiat of the Lord spoken by Jesus was a rebuke to the devil who at his word departed from the lunatic boy who was “sore vexed, ofttimes falling into the fire and oft into the water.” <5>
Have you ever wondered, as the disciples did, why they could not cast the demon out of the boy? Have you ever wondered why words of healing and of love spoken by the Master do not have the same effect in the planes of Mater when spoken through you as they did when he spoke them?
The answer is to be found in precisely this formula which I have given you on (1) the balancing of the threefold flame and (2) the merging of the coordinate chakras (throat and solar plexus; third eye and seat of the soul; crown and base) and their energies “as above, so below.” Thus in order to be healers of mankind and to walk in the footsteps of him who commanded the wind and the wave, you must begin by learning the control—the God-control—of energy flow both in the solar plexus and in the spoken Word.
If you would learn the mastery of the solar plexus, then I must remand you to the consciousness of the Elohim Peace and Aloha and their exercise of the visualization of the great sun disc over the solar plexus, calling in the name of Jesus the Christ and in the name of your own Christ Self to the Elohim of the Sixth Ray for the balancing action of their consciousness to be anchored in your solar-plexus chakra.
Visualize a circle or disc of white light the size of a dinner plate superimposed over your form at the navel. See this as a brilliant shield of armor like the white disc of the sun that appears in the sky. Then give the “Invocation to the Great Sun Disc.” You may also give the “Count-to-Nine Decree” written by the Ascended Master Cuzco specifically for the mastery of the solar plexus, the throat, and the third-eye chakras. <6>
Always remember, blessed chelas of the sacred fire, that our instruction—and, above all, your application of that instruction—is given in order that you might prepare yourself for the initiations of the cross: the transfiguration, the crucifixion, the resurrection, and the ascension. That you might be prepared for the coming of the Lord unto the tabernacle of being is our prayer.
Thus when you have shown yourself “approved unto God, a workman rightly dividing the word of truth,” <7>the hour will come that is appointed by God for you to be taken up “into an high mountain,” <8>into the plane of the I AM Presence apart from the world. And, in the ritual of the transfiguration, your face will “shine as the sun” and your raiment will be “white as the light.” <9>
So your countenance will reflect the image and likeness of God; and your aura, as the raiment of your soul, will be filled with the white light of your own Christ Self-awareness. You will find yourself standing face to face with the ascended masters and talking with them as though with friends of old.
And if perchance there are disciples of lesser attainment standing by, they may propose the building of tabernacles <10>to commemorate the event and the spot of the converging of the energies of heaven and earth—one for you and one for each of the masters who appear conversing with you.
But you will tell them that the transfiguration is not for the exaltation of the personality, nor does the individuality of the soul equate with the human personality or the idolatrous generation. For the transfiguration is the glorying of the Lord in the soul, in the Christ Self, and in the tabernacle foursquare that has become the dwelling place of the Most High God.
The bright cloud that will overshadow you in that hour will be the cloud of the I AM Presence, the forcefield of pulsating white light into which you will one day enter through the ascension spiral. And in that bright cloud is the witness of the heavenly hosts overshadowing those who in time and space are willing to commemorate the God flame—those who are not afraid to draw forth the flame of Spirit that must be ensconced in Matter if that Matter is to be translated in the ritual of the transfiguration to the plane of its origin in Spirit. And so to all who behold the consecration of your life as the transfiguring life of the Christ, the voice out of the cloud will speak, saying, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I AM well pleased; hear ye him.” <11>
If you will in earnest seek the mastery of those energies in motion anchored in the solar plexus as a reservoir of light for the release of the power of the spoken Word, the Almighty will sponsor your delivery of the Word of God in this age. And you will be the peace-commanding Presence.
And mankind will desire to hear the words that you speak; for they indeed have the authority of your sponsor from on high—the very same I AM THAT I AM who sponsored Moses, saying, “Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth and teach thee what thou shalt say.” <12> So the same Lord will speak the word through you and will draw all mankind with the seeing of the eye and with the hearing of the ear and with the command “Hear ye him!”
I am keeping the flame for those who diligently pursue the ritual of the transfiguration.
In the name of the beloved mighty victorious Presence of God, I AM in me, and my very own beloved Holy Christ Self, I am calling to the heart of the Saviour Jesus Christ and to the servant-sons of God and legions of Light who are with him in heaven, including beloved Archangel Michael and the Ascended Master Cuzco: In God’s name, I decree!
Come now by love divine,
I accept this done right now with full power. I AM this done right now with full power. I AM, I AM, I AM God-life expressing perfection all ways at all times. This which I call forth for myself I call forth for every man, woman, and child on this planet.
Visualize a three-inch band of white fire encircling the body in a clockwise direction: three times around the abdomen for the solar plexus and emotional body, three times around the thyroid and throat for the physical body, and three times around the pituitary gland and head for the mental body.
2. John 3:8.
3.The Solar-Plexus Chakra. The “place of the sun.” The solar plexus is the center of feeling where we employ the energy of emotion as God’s energy in motion to realize the peace of God’s consciousness, the peace of the ascended Jesus Christ. When your solar plexus is calm, you have the power of peace. And, using the full potential of the desire body, you have that full momentum of the “Pacific Ocean,” of water molded in a matrix of love.
The flame of purple and gold is God’s desiring to be God within you. And the power of God’s desire comes forth as you raise the energy from the solar plexus to the level of the throat and release the fiat, as Jesus did, “Peace, be still!” Through the spoken Word, a wave of light goes over the whole planet, causing atoms and electrons to come into alignment with the flame of the Prince of Peace. The solar-plexus chakra has ten petals.–ECP
*Invocation to the Great Sun Disc
Beloved Mighty I AM Presence, beloved Holy Christ Self and beloved Jesus the Christ: Blaze your dazzling light of a thousand suns in, through, and around my four lower bodies as a mighty guardian action of the light of God that never fails to protect the peaceful outpicturing of God’s plan through my every thought, word, and deed.
Place your great sun disc over my solar plexus as a mighty shield of armor that shall instantaneously deflect all discord whatsoever that may ever be directed against me or the light for which I stand.
I call now in the name of my Mighty I AM Presence to the Elohim of Peace to release throughout my being and world the necessary action of the mighty flame of Cosmic Christ peace that shall sustain in me the Christ consciousness at all times, so that I may never be found engaged in a release of misqualified energy to any part of life, whether it be fear, malice, mild dislike, mistrust, censure, or disdain.
I call to beloved Saint Germain to seize all energy that I have ever released against my brethren and that has caused them any form of discomfort whatsoever. And in the name of my Mighty I AM Presence I command that that energy be removed from their worlds—cause, effect, record, and memory—and transmuted by the violet flame into the purity and perfection that is the sacred-fire essence of God, that the earth and all elemental life might be cut free forever from human creation and given their eternal victory in the light!
I accept this done right now with full power; I AM this done right now with full power. I AM, I AM, I AM God-life expressing perfection all ways at all times. This which I call forth for myself I call forth for every man, woman, and child on this planet!
Beloved I AM! Beloved I AM! Beloved I AM!
