Elizabeth Clare Prophet on Intensifying the Aura
Inner Perspectives Podcast #44 Reveals the Inner Understanding of Psalm 46.
The understanding of the Old and New Testaments and the scriptures of the East comes with the gift of the Holy Spirit. When the prophets and great teachers wrote of their mystical experiences, they had to describe them in certain concrete terms. Some of these terms become abstract, for instance, in the writing of Ezekiel. But nevertheless, when one is experiencing these manifestations of the expansion of the inner flame, one recalls the words of Ezekiel, who beheld God as the “fire infolding itself”—the same revelation as the I AM THAT I AM that Moses beheld.
I was recently impressed by a psalm of David, Psalm 46, in which he gives a mystical understanding of the Tree of Life as the I AM Presence and the flow of the crystal-clear energies of the crystal cord. He says, “There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High.”
This verse is seen by the secular person as a commentary on outer conditions, but the mystic understands that the river is the river of consciousness. It is the river of life that emanates from the Source.
“The streams whereof shall make glad the city of God.” The streams of this great river of life, which is spoken of in the last chapter of the Book of Revelation, have to do with the coming forth of the great river of life from the I AM Presence, the descent of that river into the heart and then its distribution, in what you might call rivulets, to the seven centers of being.
And therefore we have the “making glad of the city of God.” The city denotes the state of consciousness. It denotes the space of one's self-awareness, hence the aura. City is the dwelling place. The flow of the river of God's consciousness makes glad the city of God, or the manifestation of God that is the aura. This is right in line with our discussion of the intensification of the aura.
“The holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High.” These tabernacles of the Most High are the chakras, the seven centers that are referred to by John in the Book of Revelation as the seven churches.
The message of the Lord Christ to the seven churches given to John the Revelator is actually a release of a certain frequency of energy and consciousness for the quickening of the seven centers within the temple of being. These seven churches were also, of course, physical places that could be named and that had people who were forming a nucleus of Christianity in the early Church. We find that the mystic in every faith always sees that which is described outwardly in scripture as that which is concurrently taking place on a parallel line within.
Looking at this psalm further, we see that David is describing the entire experience of God coming into his being, occupying his four lower bodies, and the great flow of the river taking command of the disturbances, the discord, the day-to-day problems that register in these vehicles of consciousness. He says, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” This in itself is a decree. It is an affirmation that God is in the midst of the trouble, the troubled waters of the emotions and the water body.
“Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.” He is speaking about the great conflict that occurs in the mind, the emotions (the desire), the physical body and their interaction—the cataclysm that occurs in consciousness when we contact God, because when God comes into our being, he rearranges our atoms and molecules.
David speaks of the raging of the forces of anti-Reality within. He says, “The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.” This melting of the elements of rebellion, of stubbornness, of disobedience is accomplished by the alchemy of the Holy Spirit and its descent into the heart of David.
