The Supreme Light

The Supreme Light

A Word from Brother Thomas

[dropcap]W]elcome[/dropcap mys­ti­cal broth­ers and sis­ters! I am Broth­er Thomas, your friend and helper as you study the Mys­ti­cal Path of Spir­i­tus Lumine. I am here once again to guide those of you wish­ing to per­fect your knowl­edge of the spir­i­tu­al path. I con­grat­u­late all seek­ers – for all who seek will sure­ly find as God intends. Source, your divine friend, is behind it all. At this very moment, He has placed his holy hunger with­in you so that you might ascend to your next excit­ing stage of spir­i­tu­al under­stand­ing and pow­er. Please, dear friend, nev­er take this for grant­ed. It is only nat­ur­al that we should believe that because we have a hunger for truth that every­one else does as well — but this is not so! You have a great desire – but your best friends and neigh­bors may not. Even though this may seem puz­zling to you, is not by acci­dent. Source awak­ens all of us accord­ing to ITs per­fect tim­ing and infi­nite wis­dom. IT has acti­vat­ed your Lux Ani­mae, which in turn caus­es you to seek and find. This divine light deliv­ers the spe­cial­ized knowl­edge and wis­dom that is just right for your lev­el of devel­op­ment. So, remem­ber, if you have a spir­i­tu­al hunger, Source has undoubt­ed­ly placed it there. Now, pro­ceed with your stud­ies full speed ahead – know­ing that it is the will of Source that you do so!

In this les­son, I will teach you about the Supreme Light, overview the impor­tance of col­ors and rays, and dis­cuss their rela­tion­ship with ascend­ed mas­ters! This may be a chal­leng­ing les­son for some. A knowl­edge of the col­ors can be very ben­e­fi­cial. Until now, your con­nec­tion with the Divine has been like unto trav­el­ing on city streets and back roads. You will cer­tain­ly get to where you are going, but it can be an exhaust­ing ride that takes a while. The col­ors and cos­mic rays are like super­high­ways that allow you to trav­el freely and quick­ly across the coun­try. The rays are like high-speed trains that rock­et from one place to anoth­er. Spir­i­tu­al­ly speak­ing, a prop­er inte­gra­tion of col­or and the cos­mic rays into your spir­i­tu­al prac­tice, allows you to bring heal­ing to your­self and oth­ers, increase wis­dom and knowl­edge, and con­nect you direct­ly with the ener­gy of your guides. Let’s begin our les­son by intro­duc­ing the Supreme Light.

The Supreme Light

[dropcap]God’s[/dropcap] supreme light per­vades the uni­verse. Some say that God is light, but actu­al­ly, it is more cor­rect to say that light is one of the infi­nite inef­fa­ble attrib­ut­es of God. For in truth, noth­ing exists but God-con­scious­ness. In eso­teric lit­er­a­ture, it is believed that Source Con­scious­ness emits a supreme light via the Great Cen­tral Sun. Think of the Great Cen­tral Sun as the cen­ter, or heart, of the uni­verse where the Cre­ator resides. This light is what we on the path call the Spir­i­tus Lumine–the divine light of God which dis­trib­utes the Divine’s dynam­ic forces across all known uni­vers­es. To con­nect with this light is to con­nect with Source. Even though our phys­i­cal forms are lim­it­ed in what we can see and hear, this divine light rep­re­sents all of the ener­getic and vibra­to­ry forces of Source, whether per­ceived by us or not. The vibra­tions we see and hear in our dai­ly lives are but one part of the Spir­i­tus Lumine avail­able to our con­scious aware­ness. As you know, we humans have a lim­it­ed range of sight and hear­ing. Fol­low­ing the mys­ti­cal path extends this range as we devel­op our spir­i­tu­al prac­tice through the inner and out­er-forms. For instance, as we med­i­tate, we acti­vate our inner-sight and hear­ing so that we might per­ceive the sub­tler fre­quen­cies of the lumine. Our range also increas­es each night as our body sleeps and we trav­el in the Lux Ani­mae while it is under the con­trol of the high­er self.

Four Forms of Light

For the mys­tic, sev­er­al prop­er­ties of light are of inter­est to us. First, the light and ener­gy of the Spir­i­tus Lumine are con­vert­ed into the sev­en cos­mic rays by the Lux Ani­mae and fed into the human chakra sys­tem via the sil­ver cord. Sec­ond­ly, there is the Spec­tral Light per­ceived by the eyes of the human body. A knowl­edge of these col­ors can help reg­u­late phys­i­cal well-being and man­age men­tal and emo­tion­al states. Third­ly, there are the audi­ble sounds we can per­ceive with our phys­i­cal hear­ing. Like the spec­tral light for the eyes, we can man­age phys­i­cal, emo­tion­al and men­tal health by inten­tion­al­ly choos­ing to lis­ten to these fre­quen­cies. Last of all, there are the cos­mic rays which we access via the inner and out­er-forms. Med­i­ta­tion upon these rays allows us to link with the ascend­ed mas­ters and trav­el to high spir­i­tu­al planes where we gain addi­tion­al spir­i­tu­al knowl­edge and wis­dom. Let’s begin our study of the four forms of light by dis­cussing the chakras.

Chakras and Light

When we speak of the chakras, we usu­al­ly refer to the sev­en major ener­gy cen­ters of the human body. Actu­al­ly, there are many more than the sev­en, but much under­stand­ing is avail­able by focus­ing upon the sev­en. For now, let us note that tra­di­tion states that each chakra has an assigned fre­quen­cy, an assigned col­or, asso­ci­at­ed human behav­iors, and pro­vides ener­gy to a spe­cial­ized organ of the human body. The ener­gies enter the body through the sil­ver cord and are dis­trib­uted accord­ing­ly. In the lessons fol­low­ing this one, each chakra will be thor­ough­ly dis­cussed.

Spectral Light

In oth­er lessons, we have not­ed that the Spir­i­tus Lumine is the means used by Source Con­scious­ness to dis­trib­ute ITs inef­fa­ble qual­i­ties across all dimen­sions of time and space. Light is one of those qual­i­ties wor­thy of our atten­tion. The light of Source is bril­liant, pure, and unable to be seen by human eyes.  In the Holy Bible, God says to Moses, “You can­not see My face, for no man can see Me and live.” (Exo­dus 33:20). In this instance, the light was “the Face of God.” Like Moses, we humans are not able to see the Divine Light in its full­ness – but we have been grant­ed an abil­i­ty to see and hear a small part of the vibra­to­ry spec­trum via our phys­i­cal forms. We often arbi­trar­i­ly divide the visu­al range into the sev­en spec­tral col­ors of red, orange, yel­low, green, blue, indi­go, and vio­let. These are the col­ors seen in nature, such as the rain­bow. These are also the col­ors which emerge from a prism when white light shines upon it.

Spec­tral Light Table

OrangeHap­py, ener­getic, excite­ment, enthu­si­asm, warmth, wealth, pros­per­i­ty, sophis­ti­ca­tion, change, stim­u­la­tion
Yel­lowHap­pi­ness, laugh­ter, cheery, warmth, opti­mism, hunger, inten­si­ty, frus­tra­tion, anger, atten­tion-get­ting

Vio­letRoy­al­ty, wealth, sophis­ti­ca­tion, wis­dom, exot­ic, spir­i­tu­al, pros­per­i­ty, respect, mys­tery

Phys­i­cal per­cep­tion of these lights can be ther­a­peu­tic to the body and used to help man­age our phys­i­cal, men­tal and emo­tion­al states. For instance, Sea­son­al Affec­tive Dis­or­der (SAD) can be con­trolled by Light Ther­a­py using the ultra­vi­o­let fre­quen­cy. Numer­ous psy­cho­log­i­cal stud­ies have shown a rela­tion­ship between col­ors and moods. Art Ther­a­py, which requires a master’s degree, is a type of psy­cho­log­i­cal ther­a­py used to fight men­tal ill­ness. Col­or ther­a­py is an emerg­ing field which shows promise in reliev­ing peo­ple from addic­tive behav­iors as well. Focus­ing upon spec­tral col­or can be use­ful to those on the mys­ti­cal path. A sim­ple inner-form is to med­i­tate upon a spe­cif­ic col­or of light in the fol­low­ing way.

A Simple Spectral Color Inner-Form

  1. Relax, ground, and cen­ter your body in the method you pre­fer, or as described in the lessons on the inner-forms.
  2. Once your body is relaxed, and you feel ready to focus your ener­gy, pre­pare your body to receive the cos­mic rays by imag­in­ing your phys­i­cal form being bathed from head to toe with the col­or of light you desire.
  3. Imag­ine your cho­sen ray of light draw­ing itself to you like a thick fog­gy cloud and per­me­at­ing every cell of your body. Or, imag­ine a won­der­ful foamy cream, filled with the ener­gy of your cho­sen cos­mic ray, cov­er­ing the entire out­er lay­er of your body and send­ing ener­gy wher­ev­er it is need­ed.
    1. If this is dif­fi­cult to visu­al­ize, try instead to imag­ine a large and com­fort­able coat that is filled with cos­mic ray ener­gy. Drape it around your body and notice that the coat hangs all the way to the ground.  Imag­ine its ener­gy per­me­at­ing and fill­ing your body.  As it does so, you feel com­fort­able and relaxed.
  4. As you draw in the breath, allow a bright shin­ing cos­mic ray of light from heav­en to enter your body from the crown chakra and stream all the way down to your toes. On the out-breath, imag­ine the reverse. As you breathe-out, Moth­er Earth sends you the cos­mic ray through your feet – streams it up through the body – and exits through the crown chakra in a mighty radi­ant stream into the heav­ens.
  5. Cre­ate a rhythm of breath­ing in and breath­ing out. Do this exer­cise as long as is com­fort­able.
  6. When you con­clude, thank your guides and mas­ters for the bless­ings of this ray.

Sound Vibration

Anoth­er form of light is the abil­i­ty to hear music – an audi­ble range of the Spir­i­tus Lumine. Again, though the spec­trum is con­tin­u­al, over the ages it has been arbi­trar­i­ly divid­ed into octave sets of eight notes: C, D, E, F, G, A, B, and C. A well-func­tion­ing human ear can hear up to 10 octaves of those sev­en notes rang­ing from 20 to 20,000 Hz. In case you haven’t noticed, there are only sev­en non-repeat­ed notes in an octave. The num­ber sev­en cor­re­sponds well with the sev­en spec­tral col­ors men­tioned ear­li­er!

A dis­cus­sion of the ben­e­fi­cial qual­i­ties of sound could be a book in and of itself. How­ev­er, the mys­tic uses these sounds to cre­ate res­o­nance with­in the phys­i­cal and spir­i­tu­al bod­ies. Think for a moment and you will real­ize that almost every rec­og­nized reli­gious and spir­i­tu­al her­itage has a strong musi­cal tra­di­tion attached to it as well. Many are famil­iar with the hymns of Chris­ten­dom, but there are any num­ber of oth­er reli­gious tra­di­tions that have cre­at­ed sub­stan­tial musi­cal forms as well – all designed to res­onate with the Divine. When used in med­i­ta­tion, this attune­ment process can be help­ful for still­ing the mind and entrain­ing the brain for a recep­tive spir­i­tu­al con­tem­pla­tion expe­ri­ence.  At the end of this les­son we encour­age you to take a moment and lis­ten to some of the videos we ref­er­ence fea­tur­ing crys­tal bowls, mantras, and med­i­ta­tive music. In the chart below, we ref­er­ence the seed-mantra sounds, known as Bija Mantras, tak­en from the Hatha yoga tra­di­tion. For thou­sands of years yogis have chant­ed these seed mantras as a foun­da­tion­al part of spir­i­tu­al prac­tice.  It is an easy and pow­er­ful thing to do. Try it as you dri­ve to work or do some mun­dane task.

A Simple Musical Outer-Form

  1. Go to YouTube​.com and search for “solfeg­gio fre­quen­cies.” From the many that are list­ed, choose one to lis­ten to that is relat­ed to the heart chakra.
  2. Sit in a com­fort­able posi­tion and begin to relax. Place a pair of your favorite ear­phones on your head and begin lis­ten­ing to the solfeg­gio fre­quen­cy asso­ci­at­ed with the heart chakra.
  3. As you lis­ten to the solfeg­gio fre­quen­cy, ground and cen­ter your body in the method your pre­fer, or as described in the lessons on the inner-form.
  4. Once your body is relaxed, imag­ine soft rays of green light fill­ing your body with a heal­ing green col­or­ful mist. As your body is filled with this green light, know it puri­fies and invig­o­rates every cell of your body and cre­ates a spir­i­tu­al res­o­nance that draws your spir­it heav­en­ward.
  5. Focus on your breath. For every in-breath, men­tal­ly chant the Bija seed-mantra YAM (pro­nounced yum).
  6. Do not have any agen­da than to chant the seed-mantra and lis­ten to the fre­quen­cy. How­ev­er, it may well be that your atten­tion shifts to anoth­er dimen­sion. If this hap­pens, relax and let it be. Just place your atten­tion on what­ev­er aris­es.
  7. Cre­ate a rhythm of breath­ing in and breath­ing out. Do this exer­cise as long as is com­fort­able.
  8. When you con­clude, give spe­cial thanks to your angels, spir­its, guides, and mas­ters for the bless­ings of this green ray and fre­quen­cy.
  9. Allow your atten­tion to come to the present moment and know that you have made con­tact with a Divine fre­quen­cy.

The Cosmic Rays

The last form of light to be dis­cussed are the cos­mic rays – also known as the Sev­en Rays. Each ray has a num­ber, col­or, mas­ter, angel, and qual­i­ties that best define it. You should note that the col­or of the rays do not nec­es­sar­i­ly cor­re­spond with the col­ors assigned to the chakra sys­tem. Also, you might note that there is dis­agree­ment across the meta­phys­i­cal lit­er­a­ture about who the actu­al Cohans (ascend­ed mas­ters) are, as well as dis­agree­ment about the col­ors. A sam­ple table is pro­vid­ed below.

So, if there is lack of agree­ment about who the mas­ters are as well as the col­ors, why do we mys­tics study the rays at all? The answer is more about learn­ing a spir­i­tu­al prin­ci­ple than any­thing else. The first prin­ci­ple is that we should always know that we can seek help from the mas­ters.

Seeking Help from the Masters

The prin­ci­ple we wish to teach in The Mys­ti­cal Path of Spir­i­tus Lumine con­cern­ing the Sev­en Rays is that the God-Con­tin­u­um is filled with guides and mas­ters who are will­ing to help us on our spir­i­tu­al jour­ney. Even though I, Broth­er Thomas, iden­ti­fy myself as a Guide from the Sev­enth Ray, that does not mean that I am the only guide you could call upon! That would be far from true. I was help­ing my chan­nel David long before he knew my name! Know­ing the name of a mas­ter, while help­ful, is not a require­ment to receive help from them. It’s the God-Con­tin­u­um that’s impor­tant. All of us, includ­ing you, are a part of the God-Con­tin­u­um. In a real sense, it is more help­ful to think of the ascend­ed mas­ters as the lead rep­re­sen­ta­tive, or head, of all who serve or call upon a vibra­tion of help and ser­vice. Again, it is the God-Con­tin­u­um that helps us. For instance, even though we call upon Lord Lan­to – not­ed mas­ter of wis­dom, illu­mi­na­tion, and enlight­en­ment – this mas­ter may well use anoth­er aspect of the God-Con­tin­u­um to help us – and that aspect may well be your dog or cat! Seri­ous­ly! So, how do ascend­ed mas­ters fit into the scheme of mys­ti­cal stud­ies? Who and what are the mas­ters any­way.

What are the Ascended Masters?

Before we speak of who they are – let us dis­cuss what the ascend­ed mas­ters are. In this les­son, when we speak of ascend­ed mas­ters we are describ­ing enti­ties that reside in dimen­sions beyond the third. For us to com­mune with them, we must prac­tice one of the inner-forms such as con­tem­pla­tion, med­i­ta­tion, or a form of present moment aware­ness when we see their fin­ger­prints upon our lives. These are men and women (but don’t for­get that gen­der becomes less impor­tant beyond the third and fourth dimen­sions) who have mas­tered earth­ly life and its spir­i­tu­al lessons. Because of their spir­i­tu­al growth and achieve­ment, they are now able to work with those of us on the less­er planes. Not every­one who ascends beyond the third dimen­sion will work with humankind for this is a spe­cial­ized work for only those few whose spir­i­tu­al jour­ney lies in this direc­tion. We may call upon those assigned to work with human­i­ty and receive their help and wis­dom. Ascend­ed mas­ters are part of the God-Con­tin­u­um, as are we, and they assume a place of hier­ar­chy – even as we do.

Who is My Ascended Master?

Before we answer this ques­tion, let us pro­vide a lit­tle ground work. We remind you that the God-Con­tin­u­um is infi­nite because Source Con­scious­ness is infi­nite. The best advice we give to all mys­tics study­ing the path of Spir­i­tus Lumine – is to assume your role as a spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eign in decid­ing who, if any, shall be your spir­i­tu­al mas­ter!  I know this state­ment may sound con­tro­ver­sial to many – espe­cial­ly those who are used to paths that clear­ly spec­i­fy who the mas­ters and guides shall be – many false­ly claim­ing that their guides are the only true guides there are!

Spiritual Sovereignty

Many a mys­tic has yet to take a step in the direc­tion of spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eign­ty. Many, once they find an attrac­tive spir­i­tu­al path, act as though these guides, and earth­ly lead­ers, should take total con­trol over their lives. If you look care­ful­ly at most tra­di­tion­al spir­i­tu­al paths, many have ele­vat­ed their own founders as ascend­ed mas­ters and the exclu­sive source for guid­ance. While this is under­stand­able, one should remem­ber that the God-Con­tin­u­um is vast. No one guide rep­re­sents it all. Be very care­ful about trad­ing one form of slav­ery for anoth­er. Sov­er­eigns do not blind­ly pledge alle­giance or shut off their rea­son­ing abil­i­ties to fool­ish­ly fol­low some guide of the hour. As a spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eign, our work is to seek, remain open to find­ing, learn what we can, and to call out to the God-Con­tin­u­um for help and guid­ance. Then, in faith, we allow Source to do its work of find­ing a teacher who will give us what is need­ed. Spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eigns co-cre­ate and work in part­ner­ship with the ascend­ed mas­ters – obe­di­ent yet sov­er­eign.

Let’s con­tin­ue with an illus­tra­tion. Assume you are bud­ding artist that is full of cre­ative pow­ers.  You have sev­er­al choic­es ahead. You might allow some teacher to total­ly over­whelm you and insist that you cre­ate every­thing accord­ing to their instruc­tions.  If you were to do this, you might pro­duce some nice art – but it would still not reflect your unique tal­ents.  Anoth­er approach you might do is notice what is sell­ing – and total­ly imi­tate the fash­ions of the moment.  Your art might become pop­u­lar – but it still would not rep­re­sent what is your unique cre­ative style.  An approach we favor is to learn teach­ings and tech­niques from oth­ers that enhance your own cre­ative abil­i­ties. In this approach, your unique artis­tic abil­i­ty would be con­stant­ly unfold­ing as you express your own style as you are influ­enced by oth­ers you admire. This last path exem­pli­fies the path of being a spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eign.

Start with the Guides You Know

With the caveat of spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eign­ty in mind, let us make a few sug­ges­tions.  Build first upon what you know. Even though you may no longer wish to fol­low a path as you did before, respect the fact that the God-Con­tin­u­um used this path to bring you to the place where you are today. Accept your grad­u­a­tion from an old path with grat­i­tude. None of us wish­es to return to grade school, but all of us can express grate­ful­ness for the expe­ri­ence. We can also under­stand that even though our for­mer teach­ers were tasked to do a spe­cial thing, they may also be a valu­able source in mov­ing us towards our next step.

In David’s life (the chan­nel I, Broth­er Thomas, use to write these lessons) he is grate­ful for his evan­gel­i­cal Chris­t­ian upbring­ing. Though he no longer believes in the same way as they do, he espe­cial­ly respects and loves Mas­ter Jesus.  Jesus con­tin­ues to be an impor­tant influ­ence for him – though not the only one. His rela­tion­ship with Jesus has led him to oth­er mas­ters and teach­ers as well – even as Jesus was led to oth­er mas­ters than Moses in the days he spent in Egypt and India. The point is, start with the mas­ters you know – whether it be Jesus, Abra­ham, Moses, Lao Tzu, Bud­dha, Ramana Maharshi, or some oth­er exalt­ed being. Speak to them as you would a friend and ask them to bring you new teach­ers that will speed you on your way – not so you may fol­low them exclu­sive­ly – but that you might, as a spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eign, grow and learn as you should. Here are some of David’s more tra­di­tion­al guides.  Per­haps you might want to learn more about some of them.

Traditional Guides for David

  • Angels (Tra­di­tion­al Chris­t­ian) — Angels are heav­en­ly mes­sen­gers that are will­ing to lend us all kinds of help.  Entire books have been writ­ten about these amaz­ing enti­ties! Angels are will­ing helpers of humankind and await our call to them. Ask them to whis­per guid­ance in your ears each day and seek their pro­tec­tion – espe­cial­ly the pro­tec­tion of Archangel Michael. Remem­ber, noth­ing fan­cy is required – a quick ver­bal call out is all that is required to invite their help.
  • Broth­er Thomas — This guide iden­ti­fies him­self as a guide and Mas­ter of the Sev­enth Ray. He serves with Saint Ger­main, who is also list­ed in this group­ing. Broth­er Thomas wish­es to spread the teach­ings of the Spir­i­tus Lumine, or the Light of God. Though he works with David to cre­ate these lessons, he is will­ing to work with any and all who wish to seek out his wis­dom. As with Saint Ger­main, he teach­es a mys­ti­cal that that all human beings (not all beings) are cre­at­ed as spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eigns that may freely use the Spir­i­tus Lumine to grow and advance spir­i­tu­al­ly. It is easy to reach Broth­er Thomas. Just go into a med­i­ta­tive state, focus upon the col­or vio­let – or the vio­let flame – and men­tal­ly chant the fol­low­ing mantra, “Spir­i­tus, Lux.” This is short for “God and me” and “God’s light, my light.” This mantra is also an affir­ma­tion that we may unite with the Spir­i­tus Lumine to receive Divine wis­dom.  Try it and see how it works for you.
  • Gau­ta­ma Bud­dha — The teach­ings of the Bud­dha are pro­lif­ic and pro­found. One of his main teach­ings is that human suf­fer­ing is the result of being over­ly attached to a per­son, place, thing, or out­come. Call upon this guide when­ev­er you are suf­fer­ing and ask for your unhealth­ful attach­ment to be revealed to you.  Ask as well for help in releas­ing it.
  • Gaia or Moth­er Earth — Moth­er Earth is a liv­ing breath­ing enti­ty and just as con­scious as you and me. She has many names through­out the world.  I find it help­ful to ref­er­ence her as Gaia-or Moth­er Earth.  Our beau­ti­ful moth­er is the cre­ative force of all mate­r­i­al things we expe­ri­ence on earth. While exis­tence springs from Source, Moth­er Earth is the enti­ty that cre­ates all mate­r­i­al homes for sen­tient and non-sen­tient beings.  Moth­er Earth’s crys­talline struc­ture is also the repos­i­to­ry, or library, for the his­to­ry of all beings who have lived upon the earth – as well as the repos­i­to­ry for this sec­tor of the galaxy. Often referred to as the Akashic Records, this library may be reviewed by per­mis­sion of our guides and Gaia. As mys­tics in human form, we need a firm ground­ing to our Moth­er if we are to have a com­plet­ed cir­cuit for the Spir­i­tus Lumine. Moth­er Earth knows you inti­mate­ly – and has been fol­low­ing your many life­times upon her plan­et. Call upon her often for wis­dom and cre­ativ­i­ty.
  • James, the Broth­er of Jesus — The wis­dom of James can­not be over­stat­ed. A book attrib­uted to him can be found in the Holy Bible in the New Tes­ta­ment. James is an enti­ty that gives prac­ti­cal advice. He is a “chop wood and car­ry water” kind of man. This means that despite his grand spir­i­tu­al attain­ment, he will remind you that spir­i­tu­al attain­ment counts for noth­ing if we do not use our gifts to help oth­ers as well as our­selves.  James will lend you prac­ti­cal advice and wis­dom.  A sim­ple way to call upon him is to say in a moment of silence, “James the Just, I call upon you in my hour or need! Please help me and lend me the wis­dom!”  Remain open through­out the day and you shall sure­ly receive what you need.
  • Jesus the Christ — One of the great­est avatars who­ev­er walked upon this plan­et is Jesus the Anoint­ed! As you study and pray to this mas­ter, try and divorce your­self from any reli­gious teach­ings you may have had pre­vi­ous­ly. Instead, adopt the teach­ings of the ser­mon on the mount, his mir­a­cles, and para­bles only. There is prob­a­bly no bet­ter descrip­tion of what it means to be a mys­tic any­where than what is stat­ed in the Beat­i­tudes.  Read only those things and see if you begin to under­stand Jesus true mes­sage – that is very dif­fer­ent from what is being taught in most main­stream Chris­t­ian church­es today. And by all means, if you are a Jesus lover, take the time to read schol­ar­ly mate­r­i­al – such as the Jesus Sem­i­nar – which tells you what say­ings most like­ly belong to Jesus and which were added by reli­gious zealots intend­ing to con­trol the mass­es many years after his death.
  • Kabir — This love­ly Indi­an mys­tic, poet, and saint describes the love a mys­tic feels towards Source like none oth­er. His poems espe­cial­ly are filled with spir­i­tu­al ener­gy that eas­i­ly trans­fers to the read­er. We espe­cial­ly rec­om­mend the poem, “Where do you search for me?” as a won­der­ful start­ing poem.
  • Lao Tzu — This amaz­ing mas­ter is thought of as the founder of Tao­ism (pro­nounced Dao­ism). His writ­ings empha­size the mys­tery of the Divine and remind us that the ways of Source are well beyond the pow­ers of human com­pre­hen­sion. Per­haps more than all oth­er ancient mas­ter, the writ­ings of Lao Tzu help the mys­tic to shed the mind and turn instead to the infi­nite vast­ness.
  • Moth­er Mary — We are speak­ing of the moth­er of Jesus the Christ here. Moth­er Mary and Gaia embody the fem­i­nine ener­gy of nature and the divine. She is an exam­ple of a guide we may turn to when we need nur­ture, com­fort, com­pas­sion, and the help that only a lov­ing moth­er may give. She is the one to whom we may pour out the tribu­la­tions of our heart – along with its cares and con­cerns. Call upon Moth­er Mary when­ev­er you need to devel­op heal­ing and com­pas­sion in your life.
  • Saint Ger­main — This name is a ver­sion of the Latin, Sanc­tus Ger­manus, or Holy Broth­er. He is the exalt­ed Mas­ter of the Vio­let Ray and pro­motes free­dom, puri­ty, wis­dom, and ascen­sion. The lessons you are read­ing are filled with his influ­ence – espe­cial­ly the teach­ings on Spir­i­tu­al Sov­er­eign­ty! Ger­main calls upon all of us to turn to a life of puri­ty and good works and to free our­selves from the pro­gram­ming and con­trol of the third-dimen­sion­al cul­ture. A beau­ti­ful mantra, accred­it­ed to Saint Ger­main, that one can recite goes as fol­lows, “I am a being of vio­let fire, I am the puri­ty God desires.” As you say this mantra over and over, imag­ine your­self sur­round­ed by heal­ing vio­let flame that cleans­es your aura com­plete­ly.
  • The Apos­tle Paul — For many, the Paul we read about in the Holy Scrip­tures is a com­pli­cat­ed mas­ter – and that he is! His writ­ing about love in 1st Corinthi­ans 13 is sub­lime! Oth­er pas­sages about prop­er human behav­iors are cer­tain­ly bound to the accept­ed Gre­co-Roman cul­ture of his day. Still, there is much to love about Paul. We rec­om­mend that you read his love poem over and over again – and call to him via the inner-forms for help and guid­ance in every­day life. We must remem­ber that for his day, Paul was the pin­na­cle of knowl­edge and cul­ture.  In our day and time, Paul would not expect us to live in ways that were mean­ing­ful so long ago – but he can help us find solu­tions for our own day and time (which will seem out­ra­geous to those who study our present ways in future times).

Still Oth­ers Include:

  • El Morya — Mas­ter of the First Ray.  He teach­es us the prin­ci­ple of fol­low­ing the way of the Divine instead of humankind. We can always call upon him for pow­er and pro­tec­tion.
  • Hilar­i­on — Mas­ter of the Fifth Ray.  He pro­motes heal­ing and whole­ness as we bring the full­ness of truth into our lives. He encour­ages us to grow beyond our present under­stand­ings and to see the uni­ty of all things.
  • Lord Lan­to — Mas­ter of the Sec­ond Ray. He is the bringer of wis­dom and divine illu­mi­na­tion. He also helps in instruct­ing us how to use our words to bring about heal­ing and enlight­en­ment in oth­ers.
  • Paul the Venet­ian — Mas­ter of the Third Ray. Mas­ter Paul teach­es us to use the spir­i­tu­al wis­dom we obtain to per­fect our abil­i­ty to love oth­ers – even those that do not care for us. In addi­tion, this is the mas­ter that teach­es us how to live with more finesse, cul­ture, and grace.
  • Ser­apis Bey — Mas­ter of the Fourth Ray. When we need dis­ci­pline, orga­ni­za­tion, and help with get­ting our life togeth­er, this is the mas­ter to call upon. He bestows order and dis­ci­ple so that we might regroup and ascend in our spir­i­tu­al growth. He is the one we call upon when we need to learn new things, and when we need to learn things that seem to hard for us. Like all the mas­ters, Ser­apis Bey will not do the work for us – but he will sure­ly show you how to do what is need­ed to put you straight.

Study and Branch Out

Nev­er for­get the pow­er of your Manipu­ra chakra, the ener­getic cen­ter that con­trols judg­ment and rea­son­ing. Ask the high­er-self resid­ing in your Lux Ani­mae to bring to your con­scious rea­son­ing new guides and ideas.  Use the pow­er of books, pod­casts, web­sites, and the like to help you. Here are a few to help you get start­ed. These are some of the guides that David uses and finds help­ful – along with a few of his ideas and sug­ges­tions. Per­haps you may wish to study some of their cen­tral teach­ings and, through the inner-forms, con­tact these teach­ers for addi­tion­al help, guid­ance and wis­dom.

More Current Guides

  • Depart­ed Loved Ones — Fam­i­ly mem­bers and friends who live on the oth­er side of aware­ness are often will­ing to help us as well. We can cre­ate a spir­it lan­guage to alert us when they are near. We can also use inner-forms to com­mu­ni­cate more exten­sive­ly. One thing to keep in mind – if we call to them, even if we are in a per­fect­ly con­scious state, they will hear us!
  • Fred Davis — Awak­en­ing Clar­i­ty Now. Fred Davis is a ras­cal of a man who has turned his life around after hav­ing a pro­found awak­en­ing expe­ri­ence.  His new work involves help­ing peo­ple to “Wake Up!” He is very good at this. He has sev­er­al books and videos avail­able that clear­ly explain the con­cepts and process.  These alone can wake you up! He also meets with peo­ple via Skype and con­ducts awak­en­ing ses­sions. Fred is relent­less in iden­ti­fy­ing the voice of your ego ver­sus your soul. By the time he fin­ish­es work­ing with you – you will be too.
  • Lisa Tran­scen­dence Brown — Awak­en­ing to Remem­ber. By all reports, Lisa Tran­scen­dence Brown was about as ordi­nary a per­son as one could find. Through a series of inci­dences, she became aware of her tran­scen­den­tal nature and seeks to pre­pare humankind for their jour­neys beyond the third dimen­sion. Her mes­sage is very dif­fer­ent from most. You may have to lis­ten to sev­er­al of her videos before you have the “ahhh haaa moment.” It is well worth the effort how­ev­er.
  • Matt Kahn — True Divine Nature. Matt Kahn is prob­a­bly the clear­est voice speak­ing about the pow­er of love that I know. His videos are clear and pow­er­ful – eas­i­ly found on the inter­net. Matt has a great sense of humor and can help raise any trapped orange (emo­tion­al) ener­gy to your heart chakra and above.  I would describe many of Matt’s ideas as out­er-form work that changes how you would nat­u­ral­ly react to an enlight­ened reac­tion based upon the pow­er of love.
  • Paul Twitchell and Harold Klemp of Eck­ankar. Both of these men have been the spir­i­tu­al leader of Eck­ankar – a mod­ern day pre­sen­ta­tion passed from the Vara­gi mas­ters. Its teach­ings pro­vide some of the clear­est expla­na­tions about the var­i­ous light bod­ies of man, planes of exis­tence, and the sounds asso­ci­at­ed with those planes.  Both of these mas­ters will vis­it with you on the inner and offer much prac­ti­cal advice.
  • Ramana Maharshi – Hin­du Guru. Romana was a Hin­du sage who died in 1950.  His books and teach­ings on self-inquiry are still avail­able.  His work is clear, con­cise, and lov­ing.
  • Parama­hansa Yoganan­da — Self-Real­iza­tion Fel­low­ship. Yoganan­da was an Indi­an Yogi who brought Kriya Yoga to Amer­i­ca. His teach­ings, though sim­i­lar to oth­er Hin­du sages, are about bring­ing about a “Direct Expe­ri­ence of God.”

Review

Through the Spir­i­tus Lumine, Source shares its infi­nite being through­out the uni­verse in the form of light and vibra­tional ener­gy. Humankind receives a spe­cial band of this light ener­gy via the sil­ver cord as it feeds the chakras. Each chakra receives a spe­cial fre­quen­cy of light that enables spe­cial­ized func­tions with­in the human. The human can­not live with­out this light. Light that may be seen is known as spec­tral light which is dif­fer­ent from the light that we can hear with our ears. It is ther­a­peu­tic, both phys­i­cal­ly and spir­i­tu­al­ly, to see and lis­ten to pure forms of light. These lights may be medi­at­ed upon and used to trav­el to oth­er worlds. Final­ly, col­ors of light often rep­re­sent spir­i­tu­al hier­ar­chies – such as the Mas­ters of the Sev­en Rays. In med­i­ta­tion, we may prac­tice inner-forms using col­ors asso­ci­at­ed with ascend­ed mas­ters.  In this way, we may gain wis­dom and guid­ance as we trav­el our spir­i­tu­al path.

Other Material

This is a video fea­tur­ing Crys­tal Singing Bowls that have been tuned to basic music fre­quen­cies. Relax and let these soft tones do their heal­ing work.

Relax and med­i­tate with these Tibetan Singing Bowls. These are the same kind of bowls that Monks have used for thou­sands of years.

In the les­son, we speak about the Bija Seed Mantras.  These are made to be repeat­ed­ly hummed and sung. They can be espe­cial­ly pow­er­ful when tied to today’s bin­au­r­al sounds.

One of the most ancient mantras is “Om, So, Hum.” Trans­lat­ed, it means, “I am that.” The mantra helps us to remem­ber that, in the end, every­thing is noth­ing but a man­i­fes­ta­tion of Source Con­scious­ness. This par­tic­u­lar ren­di­tion of the mantra, when played soft­ly through head­phones, is a pow­er­ful attune­ment vibra­tion.

Per­haps one of the most pow­er­ful mantras of the Hin­du peo­ples is the Gay­a­tri Mantra. This short prayer has a long his­to­ry and has been used some 1800 years before Christ was born.  We fea­ture the beau­ti­ful singing voice of Deva Pri­mal – singing the prayer. Here is a trans­la­tion of what it means.

The eter­nal, earth, air, heav­en
That glo­ry, that resplen­dence of the sun
May we con­tem­plate the bril­liance of that light
May the sun inspire our minds.
