Easter Retreat 1995
I AM the Champion of My Chelas
If You Make Your Bed in the Psychic
You Will Have to Lie in It!
Rise to the level of your God Presence!
Know the Lord as the infinite will of God!
Internalize that will:
in the mind, in the third eye—in the heart, the soul!
Let light abound! Raise consciousness!
I draw up the white fire from the base of the spine to the third eye. Feel it! For I have come with my magnet that you might know what it is to have the sacred fire rise on the altar of being. And in those who require more transmutation before that sacred fire may be raised, I will leave it sealed in the base-of-the-spine chakra for this encounter.
But I shall come! And each time I come and each time you see my name on a class program, you can expect me to accelerate the sacred fire within you so that you might feel the burning at the base of the brain, so that you might feel the burning in your heart, even as the disciples’ hearts did burn within them as they walked with the Lord on the road to Emmaus yet did not recognize him. <1> So you see, they had not raised the sacred fire for the opening of the third eye; for had they done so, they would have recognized Jesus as the risen Christ.
Thus, beloved, it is well to give the bija mantras to the Divine Mother. <2> These are important, for they are life-quickening.
The Mother Flame is for the “watering” of all of the chakras and the cleansing of the soul. And as the fire of the Mother does rise on the spinal altar, you ultimately experience communion with her in the secret chamber of the heart, where your Mother energies and your Father energies reunite. It is then that you sense your wholeness, your completeness, and the balance of your yin/yang energies. No longer are you incomplete, no longer do you crave this or that, for you have entered into the internalization of the white fire of God. This is possible unto you.
Let the bija mantras to the Divine Mother become a permanent part of your Friday-night ascension service. For not only is the ascension service an opportunity for you to clear the discarnates from the planet but it is also an opportunity for you to increase the rings of the white fire body around your four lower bodies and chakras. So visualize yourself in these rings, for we desire to see you put on greater and greater light from the very heart of Luxor in preparation for your ultimate victory.
Therefore, Serapis Bey does send a ray of light to me in this moment, asking that I might speak in his behalf. For he would tell you, beloved, that the two most empowering actions that you can achieve right within your own temple are the conservation of the sacred fire and then the raising up of that sacred fire as you are able and as you are comfortable in so doing.
At each level of self-mastery you attain to, the daily requirement for personal and planetary transmutation by the violet flame is increased. For some, an additional prerequisite to progress is the sorting out of this and that in the unconscious and the subconscious.
This is also very important, beloved. For unless you clear the many levels of being, and specifically the issues of your psychology, you will find that the rising sacred fire will give a certain permanence to the knotty problems you desire to cast into the violet flame.
Therefore, consciously direct a ray of violet flame to each of your chakras, from the base of the spine to the crown. The large violet flame poster that illustrates the chakras superimposed on Michelangelo’s statue of David <3>provides a strong visualization for clearing the chakras and raising the Kundalini.
Visualize yourself systematically transmuting records of the ancient and near past until you have a fully cleansed temple that the Lord Christ might occupy. Yes, see yourself encircled in pulsating ovoids of violet flame, as shown on the poster. For what you see and internalize you shall become.
Your goal is to have the Lord Christ of you, your Holy Christ Self, occupy your four lower bodies. If those bodies are full of debris that has been stored in the attic of the brain for centuries, there is no room whatsoever for the Christ to enter in.
Clean house! But in the very same hour, fill the house with light. Sweep it clean, fill it with light and repeat the ritual day after day.
Why, you wash your dishes daily, you clean your houses, you take care of your clothing, you take care of your person. Why not take care of these compartments of consciousness that you have so neglected?
Clean out the realm of the mental body and all the records of episodes that have been impressed upon it for thousands of years. When you self-empty and then call to God to fill you, giving the prayer “Come, occupy! occupy! occupy! my beloved Christ Self,” day by day by day you will have that clearing. And you may live to rejoice in these very bodies over the complete clearing of all past records. You may live to accomplish the balancing of 100 percent of your karma so that you may fill your vessels with light! light! light! qualifying that light with whatever is the need of the hour in vibration, in speech, in energy, in consciousness.
Understand that your physical body is the temple of the living God. <4> And therefore, be solicitous of that temple in every way. Every cell is a chalice, every atom and all energy in motion that holds the balance of Alpha and Omega.
Thus, from the white fire core of your innermost being centered in the base-of-the-spine chakra, call to your I AM Presence to raise the sacred fire to your crown chakra and the third eye and let light! light! light! intensify! Let your aura be magnified! Let rings upon rings of your Causal Body surround you here below because you shall have drawn from your Causal Body such intensity of light through your decrees.
You know that the only act that can take from you the victory of your decrees is the act of entering into discord. And it doesn’t help matters when you are not regular in your decrees. When you are regular in your decrees and you judiciously hold your harmony—because you are concerned about holding your harmony—you may maintain and accelerate the momentum of your decree work and build upon it! and build upon it! and build upon it! And you may sense that you are receiving the great reward of your work because you are meeting the Buddha at least a quarter of the way by building the rings of your Causal Body around your four lower bodies.
This, of course, is an adjunct to your walking the path with your Holy Christ Self and submitting to the initiations you must undergo to become the Bride of your Lord, Jesus Christ. Certainly, if you have a temple that has been emptied and filled with light—which you can now adorn with the seamless garment you have woven, for all the rents have been healed and all aberrations of consciousness have been transmuted by the violet flame—this will bring you closer and closer to your soul’s fusion with the heart of Jesus and to bearing the title and the mantle of Bride of Christ.
The ceremony wherein one is received as a Bride of Christ is awesome, beloved. And I deem it to be most awesome when the soul who is to become the Lord’s Bride is still in incarnation.
The presence on earth of a Bride of Christ can be felt throughout the world. For all on earth are made aware of a very special presence, a very special relationship, a very special holiness between the Bride and her Lord. And until you yourself achieve oneness with Christ, you have the opportunity, if you are married, to reconsecrate at the altar of God the marriage you have entered into at the human level; thus, man and wife may celebrate their present oneness and their future union with Christ as his Brides.
Now then, beloved, the blessing and true beauty of marriage should be known to you. But there is another marriage I would speak of and that is your marriage to your Guru. For some time, of course, your Guru may necessarily be me, for I am the one appointed to this office by Saint Germain and the hierarchy of light. I am the one appointed to receive you on behalf of the Seven Chohans and the Maha Chohan as you enter the path of chelaship.
When I take to myself a chela and sponsor that chela, it is a very, very special event. Many people wait lifetimes for such an opportunity simply because it is not possible for me to carry the weight of those who have not yet transmuted a certain amount of karma and have not shown a certain steadiness—a steadfastness on the path of the will of God, veering neither to the right nor to the left.
Constancy is the key virtue that I must have in those who truly desire to be one with me. If I would train you personally, beloved, I must have from you an unflinching constancy whereby you maintain a steady level of absorption of the blue flame of the will of God and thus enter day by day into the sacred fire of the First Ray. You must be willing to take any rebuke, any correction, to take it swiftly and to then swiftly self-correct. You must have a momentum on giving the decrees to the Ascended Masters who serve principally on the First Ray. You may give any (or all) of the blue decrees, whether they be to me or to Surya or to Himalaya or to Vaivasvata or to Archangel Michael.
I tell you, beloved, when you keep yourself saturated in the blue ray and you are alert to every out-of-step state of mind that you might even consider entertaining, you will find that I shall become your champion. Once I become the champion of a chela, I will work with that chela to the end. Thus, beloved, do not think that I take lightly the taking on of a chela.
Many of you are chelas in the becoming. But I must test and try you for many years, sometimes for lifetimes, before I receive the signal from Almighty God himself that I might burden myself by taking on another student.
Realize this, beloved. It is well to make yourself a devotee of the will of God. For as a devotee, you will increase! and increase! and increase! many shades of blue rings around your four lower bodies and the circumference of your life. And when you have proven yourself under fire and in many situations—untenable situations, devastating situations—and have come out right side up, we will know that we have a chela of the first order and we will receive you that you might be anointed before the council in Darjeeling.
Yes, this is a very special opportunity and all can make themselves worthy. I speak of it, beloved, because I have surveyed the earth and I have listened to the dictations that have been given at this class and I understand that there are many, many people in the world who would seek and find this Teaching if they knew it existed somewhere.
Since I am about to sponsor millions of souls for this activity and this Path, I must be certain that you who are here and who form the foundations of this Community throughout the earth are true to me. You must be true to the souls who are entering in. You must care for them and raise them up. You must be done with your criticism, condemnation, judgment and gossip. And you must laud the power of God that gives to us the opportunity to truly turn the world around in the next seven years.
Thus, beloved, at the same time that I speak about receiving many among you as chelas, for many of you are worthy, I also must speak about those who have not been chelas, who have never been chelas, but who have hung on to this activity like moths flitting around a lamp light. At times they have gathered around the flame in such numbers that the flame could no longer be seen.
Therefore, I am seeing to it that these individuals will no longer be a part of this Community. Some have already left. Some have been removed because they refused to surrender certain psychic activities that cannot in any way be tolerated in an organization sponsored by the Ascended Masters. It is a matter of black and white: you either forsake the psychic or you may not be a part of this organization.
It is often true that individuals who are psychic do not know that they are psychic, for they have tumbled into the world of illusion, the world of baubles and trinkets and smoke and mirrors. They have descended in a downward spiral into the astral plane and, lo and behold, they believe they have found Shangri-la!
Well, beloved ones, I wish to discuss with you the matter of placing yourselves before teachers other than the Ascended Masters and before teachings other than the Teachings of the Ascended Masters. If you are determined to take courses from this or that instructor because he or she professes to teach something you think you ought to know and yet you are aware that that instructor is psychic or has been identified as psychic by the Messenger, this is what will happen:
When you place yourself before a teacher who is not tied to the Great White Brotherhood, who does not have God-control of his four lower bodies or of anger (or the Martian A’s the Messenger has listed <5>) and who is in some kind of a valley of indecision, choosing to live neither in Light nor in Darkness but in a gray area, you open yourself up to receive from that teacher whatever untransmuted substance is lodged in his electronic belt. (For the pupil is always the one who receives and the teacher is always the one who gives.) And you will not be able to screen out the psychic from the nonpsychic; for the psychic vibration pollutes the entire stream of consciousness of the one who lets himself flow with it.
Thus, you take in not only what the psychic consciously dishes out but the entire subconscious momentum of his psychicism, including his impure vessel, which in most cases has not been dedicated as a chalice for violet flame transmutation. (In the world of the psychic there are many who have no determination to transmute past karma and there are others who do use the violet flame but are nevertheless unwilling to give up their involvement in the psychic.)
And the conclusion will be that I will have nothing further to do with you because you will have made your bed in the psychic and you will have to lie in it until you decide to “clean up your act,” as the saying goes. If you go the way of the psychic when you know the Law, I cannot help you and I can no longer have any ties to your lifestream. Nor can any other Ascended Master maintain ties to you, for the Great Law will not allow it.
You must understand that through your tie to the Great White Brotherhood through Padma Sambhava and the lineage of hierarchy that sponsors this Messenger, <6>you have the greatest opportunity in the entire Matter universe to take your ascension in this life. The hierarchies of light who are involved with this earth are also involved with this universe. And therefore, their sponsorship of this organization is not something merely of this earth.
So I have spoken and this is my statement. Hear it well. I have set a full table before you. The Lord Christ has broken the bread of life and given you of his Body and his Blood. It is not necessary for you to know everything about everything, including the things of the psychic. It is not necessary for you to look for shortcuts. There are no shortcuts!
You can fool yourself in many ways, whether by muscle testing or by this or that something or other that someone has come up with. But in the end, beloved, you will find that you have made no forward progress whatsoever and that you have forsaken your spiritual path and your spiritual trust with the Ascended Masters, who are your Teachers and Gurus. And I say, you will find yourself with a bellyful of psychic energy and you will have only yourself to rid yourself of it.
Psychic energy is like quicksand. Souls can be sucked into it and actually defend their right to be doing what they are doing because they are so enmeshed in the psychic plane and its psychic inhabitants that they can no longer tell the difference between the spiritual path and the psychic path. This is a tragedy of the age!
There are millions of souls on earth who are following psychic teachers and, as a result, they are falling by the wayside. Because they are tied to these teachers, they are unaware that their auric sheath (the light that is closest to the body) is being “bled” from them. Unknowingly, they are losing their soul essence. It is being taken from them not necessarily by spiritualists or crystal-ball gazers but by everyday people who live in the psychic plane. Therefore know that when you keep company with such people, you make yourself vulnerable to all levels of the astral plane. When you place yourself opposite them as a student, you are even more vulnerable.
A typical example of psychism on television that draws millions into the astral plane every day, hence into the surreal world of the psychic, is the so-called soap opera. There is absolutely no redeeming value in the “soaps.” They are a cesspool of the psychic and those who put their attention on that cesspool day in and day out will find themselves still in that cesspool after they pass from the screen of life in the change called death.
Another example of psychism is the violence in the Saturday-morning cartoons. This violence is a horrendous desecration of the soul of the child. The makers of these cartoons have sown the wind and they shall—I say, they shall—reap the whirlwind of their karma for the abuse of the minds and emotional bodies of children.
We are your teachers. We are your initiators. We give you your initiations on the Path. As your parents, we coddle you. You cannot imagine how we root for you and go to battle for you. But we expect one thing: allegiance to the one God and the one God in the person of the Ascended Masters.
The Ascended Masters are the sponsors and teachers of this organization. If there is a subject of study that you are interested in, ask the Messenger if she will teach on that subject. Ask her if she will invite qualified instructors who are not psychic to come and teach such subjects as you deem necessary for the furtherance of the educational goals of this organization.
Over the years the Messenger has invited many experts in the fields of health, education, psychology and self-help. And we are certainly open to having our chelas excel in advanced learning techniques as long as these do not involve autosuggestion or autohypnosis. The call to your I AM Presence and Holy Christ Self can take you to any plane or octave that is necessary for you to enter to tap the resources of the brain and the higher intelligence of the Mind of God. Keepers of the Flame must never allow themselves to be hypnotized nor should they hypnotize others. For the hypnotist displaces the role of the Holy Christ Self and deposits his own untransmuted energy in the unprotected subconscious or unconscious.
The bottom line is this: I will have nothing further to do with anyone who goes after the world of the psychic and its followers. If you pursue the psychic, you will have to clean up your world on your own. You will have to once again make your soul and your four lower bodies an acceptable chalice for your Holy Christ Self if you desire to be a part of this organization.
I trust I have made myself clear. I want you to understand that I am in some measure concerned and equally burdened that Saint Germain should have to deal with such goings-on in this organization as students professing to take dictations from the Maha Chohan and other Ascended Masters when they have no mantle and no office in the Great White Brotherhood that would authorize them to take dictations. And I am chagrined that the Maha Chohan himself should be subjected to individuals who would take dictations that are supposedly from him but are not and who claim to have the Holy Spirit but do not.
The initiations of the Holy Spirit come to you day by day. And they come, beloved, when you are ready. Before you can become a direct disciple of the Holy Spirit under the Maha Chohan, you must submit yourself to the paths of the Seven Chohans and master at least three of those paths, one of which must be the path of the First Ray under me. The Chohans who preside over the other two paths of your choosing may accept you, whether as a preferred chela or a beginning student, or they may tell you to diligently follow the path taught by the Messengers until you may be invited to be directly under the tutelage of one or both of these Chohans. I exercise the same discretion.
Therefore it burdens me to see a certain setting aside or rejection, if you will, of the Masters, who have been with you for so long, in favor of those who come to town with their pots and pans and snake oil, seeking to tear from you your First Love.
Your first and true and only love should be your I AM Presence. Call to your I AM Presence to see to it that you have every bit of edification and learning that you require to make your ascension. But do not be greedy in indulging in this, that and the next course offered here and there and everywhere as conniving psychic entrepreneurs take advantage of silly people who will come into their shops and pay high prices to be taught, often by those who have not been cleansed by the Lord Christ and therefore in whom that Christ does not dwell.
I trust you understand my concern and my sternness. I do not, I will not compromise. I will not carry any chela’s psychic baggage. If you have needlessly yet knowingly tied yourself to psychic people or the psychic plane, then you will have to demagnetize your four lower bodies with the assistance of Archangel Michael and Elohim Astrea and use the violet flame assiduously until you are finally out of the astral plane—once and for all.
In this hour, then, I seal you for the victory and I say, we will have in this Community those who are fine examples of the Path. And we will let those who are glassy-eyed and already gone, gone into the psychic, even with the aid of psychedelic drugs, gravitate to lower levels, where they would just as soon be in any case. Let us part in peace with those who do not recognize their high calling in God and their stupendous opportunity to advance along the lines of the great dispensations of the Central Sun.
I bow to the Christ in each one and I bid you adieu. - [41-second standing ovation]
