The vast majority of us barely use our spiritual power at all. This may be because we don’t know we have it, because we don’t know how to use it or because we don’t believe we are “authorized” to command our spiritual power being the “small humans” we imagine ourselves to be.
One of the many gifts and blessings Saint Germain gave us is a way to decree and activate our spiritual power. His series of teachings published by Saint Germain Press, contained in over 20 green leather bound books, is a complete lifetime course in how to actualized our spiritual power. We are going to look at one specific way to call forth our fuller spiritual power. The power of decree is under used in general. It is an awesome way to command greater spiritual power for the good of all people including ourselves.
Of course, decrees can be said over and over again without any heart energy present and they will accomplish little. However with determination and heart felt energy, decrees become powerful commands of spiritual power. This is true for matras and prayers as well. Our heart’s desire for change for the good, activates that energy in this dimension. The effective use of decrees comes from the fact that each and everyone of us is created from Divine Love and Energy. We are indeed made in the Image of All That Is and at these times in our lives, that image is in our bodies and lives. Though we are made in this Divine Image, we may not be feeling that in the daily process of our lives.
Nevertheless, when we decree for good, we are moving beyond our mind’s limitations about who we are and embracing our Eternal, All Powerful, All Knowing Selves to which each and every one of us is connected even while in body. For most of us, we are not consciously aware of this ever present connection. Thus it is very unlikely that we have with intent, commanded our spiritual power for the good. Never mind, it works even if our minds don’t get it! We don’t have to know how this will happen or when. The decree is enough to change the energy around us in profound ways. A decree is a command from ourselves for good to come forth in its full power in this dimension now.
More fully activating our spiritual power can also begin when we realize that we are the keepers of our own Light. We can grow it or ignore it.
One interested in growing it might ask, How do I call forth my full ‘I AM Power’ into my daily human life? The following decrees and commands are from the “I AM” Decree Booklets of the Saint Germain Press*. They are very powerful in actually shifting energy in this human dimension. These decrees are one way to call in our full Spiritual Power.
These commands given from Saint Germain are a means for us to cast out that which is humanly created and draining us. At the same time they can also be a means for us to call forth Divine Presence in all its loving power into our lives. The “Mighty I Am Presence” is the part of us that is fully One with All That Is. We are speaking to our highest selves and to all of the highest Divine Presence in all forms when we give these commands.
Change your thinking from being separate from God to being One with God as you envision the greatest power on Earth waking up and actualizing in your daily lives. Select the following decrees that are needed in your life. Repeat your chosen ones out loud, a minimum of three times, each time you focus on them. Then set down the issues and conditions you are dealing with. If you are called to focus on these again, repeat the process.
We have the power to stop our dwelling on appearances which results in our feeling fearful.
STOP! YOU HAVE NO POWER! GET OUT OF MY WORLD! I will have no more of this Human Nonsense. (speaking to the appearances and yourself)
BELOVED MIGHTY I AM PRESENCE , dissolve, consume, annihilate this fear of darkness showing up as ( fill in with your issue) within me and lift me out of this.
We have the power to call forth presence, power and reinforcements of the Divine Love and Light right into our being.
BELOVED I AM PRESENCE! Give me Divine Order through Divine Love and Justice in my mind, in my home, affairs and world. I place myself and my affairs lovingly in the hands of the Father/Mother with childlike faith. That which is for my highest good shall come to me.
We have the power and the authority to call forth the Sacred Flame to clear and consume all our humanly developed feelings and thoughts that are draining us of our peace of being.
BELOVED MIGHTY I AM PRESENCE! Pass your Violet Consuming Flame through my mental and feeling world!, my mental and emotional bodies! and sweep out, dissolve, and consume all imperfection! Pour Your Mighty Current of Energy through, filling my mind and body with Your Mighty Health, Strength, Energy and Buoyancy, everywhere forever!
We have the power and the right to call forth Divine Energy into discordant conditions.
BELOVED MIGHTY I AM PRESENCE! Forgive it, and blaze the Violet Consuming Flame through it! Take it out of the Universe swiftly, so it cannot touch any other part of Life: and let no more of anything exist that dishonors God or desecrates the Beauty that is within the Light, which is ever offering Itself through Love into my outer use and manifestation.
We have the power to call forth our own health and healing.
MIGHTY I AM PRESENCE! Take command of this mind and body! Direct it by your mighty intelligence! Put it in its own right activity , and do it now!
BELOVED I AM PRESENCE! Free me from the human darkness I carry which is manifesting as illness and imbalance in my body ( mind, relationship, affairs).
After you come to a stopping point with these decrees, take time to close your eyes and rest in the healing energy of All That Is. Saying these decrees brings powerful healing vibrations for needed shifts within your own energy field.
When you feel your calls are not answered:
“Either you are not using the Violet Consuming Flame to keep dissolving your own human accumulation which comes forth, or your feeling is not following your attention. These are the only two things that can produce any failure in the application of this Law. The Law never fails, but you can obstruct your way by allowing these conditions to exist.” ( I AM Decree Booklets, Book One pg. 142.)

We can choose to be afraid or trusting. We can choose to be selfish or generous. We can choose to be welcoming or restrained. Each and every choice we make for the goodness of the greater whole produces more balance. Each and every choice we make which is not for the goodness of the greater whole produces more imbalance.
The greater the imbalance we feel within ourselves, the greater these imbalances manifest in our lives. There is however no dark entity of dark power to be reckoned with sometimes known as the dark side. We can know we are connected in one part of our lives to the Light and we can feel disconnected in other parts of our lives from the Light. In my case, I was very surprised that I felt attacked by something I envisioned as dark energy. I had not felt that fearful energy for years and years and yet there it was showing its ugly head right after our car accident. (spoken about in part 1)
Regardless of where we are in our journey, what we feel, see, sense, and experience is a reflection of the choice to be connected to the Light or the choice to be separated from the Light. This leads us back to the accident.
Why did that accident really happen to us? I kept asking this in my mind and had a hard time not getting an immediate answer. I wondered if I had attracted that accident to us through some means, if I needed to pay a karmic debt that I was not aware of, or if I was being attacked by the dark. I gave a lot of power to this last thought.
There are multiple true answers to this question. Each of us involved, my husband, the truck driver, and me experienced this same accident for different reasons. I now feel that I had this accident to give me a chance to directly face my deeply hidden fear about some force I thought of as the dark. This was not something I might take a Sunday afternoon to contemplate! As with most of us, I would probably always choose to engage in something else, anything else, actually. I needed a deeply shocking experience to go into my own darkness and wrestle my way through all of that old stuck energy.
Even though I slogged through the darkness after the accident, I sensed the minute we were hit, at some unconscious level, that we were not hurt. Immediately after the impact, I was led to pray for the complete and total healing of our fear from our energy fields. I felt an insulating energy drop in around us as the accident occurred and as the investigation was taking place. I also had the dawning thought with increasing certainty that the impact of the truck’s energy on our van was buffered by Divine Presence. We were surrounded immediately by that Divine Energy of Light. We were protected from harm’s way.
This experience of the Divine Presence with us at the accident continued to be present while I wrestled with my own created fear of the darkness. That powerful knowing just stayed within my energy field through all my stages of anger, frustration, uncertainly and questioning I felt I needed to feel. During one phase of my deeply questioning and anger tinged state about this accident, I asked about all the times I had been killed from this dimension. I was told the number. Then immediately following this exchange I heard, “but you agreed to that”. I started to laugh knowing deeply that this was true. Further, if this is true for me, then it is true for every one of us. Even the “innocent bystander” leaves when it is his or her time to leave. At the same time, an innocent bystander does not leave before it is his or her time either.
Yet the question remains, why do some come here and physically suffer and others come and mentally or emotionally suffer? Our entire journey is about coming into balance within our own energy. When we begin to experience this inside, it begins to manifest all around us in all our affairs. Many of the challenges, problems, conflicts, situations we get into are a result of imbalances we have chosen in our lives. If we need to “atone” or re-balance, from some past transgression we have caused, we have infinite ways that we can do that in a lifetime.
Parts of our lives can appear like suffering until we get that we are One with the Light and that we are being given our specific life circumstances so that deep imbalances in our human selves can be re-balanced with the Love of the Universe. We may also have a life in which we are given the option of being here in illness or disability as a way to re-balance some huge transgression of our past or as a way to develop compassion for ourselves and others, or as an example of living with joy and grace with our disability for others to learn from.
We are given whatever we need to come into a more loving and whole space with All That Is. We cannot judge by appearances for ourselves or for others. There is a Divine and Holy Order within this Earth dimension even though we may not be able to discern it. The process of re-balancing for the Goodness of the Whole is taking place, all the time for all people everywhere.
If you think you have brought imbalances, fears and transgressions of the past with you, you can work them out before you are required to do so, in some totally WAKE UP fashion. I recommend all the preemptive work we can do to clear the darkness, fear and imbalance we feel inside ourselves.
- You can pray and ask forgiveness for all the people you have hurt throughout all space and time.
- You can ask for all the debts of imbalance you have brought about in your times of separation from the Light to be made whole in all ways by Divine Grace.
- You can literally call in the healing energy of the Light for all those you have specifically hurt.
- You can call for the fear of anything you know you are facing to be consumed by the Light of God/All That Is.
Of course, one has to have the feeling that restoring balance is important. We are loved beyond all measure but knowing that at the soul level requires our acting in this energy. We need to embrace the fact that we can clear our old stagnant energies and past misdeeds by calling for this to happen.
We have to embrace a new intention for being here, one that embraces that all living is for the purpose of healing and thereby for coming into the Energy of the One, the Whole, the Eternal Community of Life. Then all is possible.
What is “the dark” anyway? Is there a dark side as presented in all those sci-fi movies? What if the way we think about good and bad, light and dark, is all wrong. I had occasion to seriously consider these issues recently.
My husband and I were sitting at a red light and were hit from behind by a semi truck. Thankfully, through the grace of All That Is, which is something way beyond us, we were spared great injury though our beloved car is a goner. Therefore, I have been deeply listening and asking very pointed questions about the presence or absence of darkness and about the real energetic causes behind such an accident in this cause and effect world.
The stages I have experienced after our our accident have been shock, rage, defiance, befuddlement, questioning, then listening and reintegrating. The first stage was simply a numbness and exhaustion while all that had happened sank in. This went on for several days and was overlaid with rage and defiance. The rage was directed at some unknown entity in my mind known “the dark”, envisioned as some power apart from the goodness of All That Is. I was defiant and literally remember raising my fist into the air and hissing out loud, a number of times, ” you are not going to get me.” I suppose that was better than wallowing in fear and victim energy, perhaps only marginally though. However, it did not feel very good to be facing the unknowable face of “the dark” nor to imagine “the dark” coming after me again. As there was incredulity and fear connected with all of this, I increasingly became mixed up, unsure of what I was possibly dealing with and I felt lost and befuddled. I also increasingly wondered how could I possibly make sense out of this fear filled and seemingly senseless experience.
My next stage was full of questions. I talked with God, my sons, my husband, my friends, my colleagues, basically anyone who would engage with me. I talked and talked getting out all my questions and misgivings and when I was completely talked out, I listened in silence. I felt no peace in the self-fashioned image I had of “the dark”. As I listened and sensed the Divine Energy of All That Is, I felt more and more deeply that All There Is is the Oneness. We are all connect to that energy, indeed we come from the same source, though some of us do not recognize this in our present state of consciousness.
The Oneness knows all the goodness and all the evil as we are given complete free will to live as we so choose. Some of us choose to consciously live in that energy of the Light and others of us do not. There are natural consequences for remaining outside Light space. One feels alone, fearful, angry, rage, resentment, uncertain, anxious, and far worse as well. That energy manifests as unkindness, cruelty, violence, disaster, war, and disintegration in varying levels to self and others. This is the source of the darkness, these human choices, these human fears and their human consequences.
Through all this searching, a deep knowing has emerged from within. All darkness stems from the human choice to separate from the Light. Darkness is the state of separation of individuals from the Light/ All That Is/ the Greater Whole/ the One Mind. I have suspected this for a while. However, I was amazed that such deep soul searching was still needed to resolve my feelings. With such a highly noticeable event in my life, it was challenging to come to balance with regard to, “why me”? One day, in silence, I realized that I was not the only person involved in this accident. DUH! There were two others in this accident, my husband and the truck driver. So, possibly it was not necessary to wrack my brain for a plausible explanation as it probably did not “belong” solely to me. That was a total relief.
Still, there can be the appearance of darkness everywhere we look. Someone in my meditation group asked about how my insights about there being no “dark” source energy fit with something as horrible as the holocaust. How could anything less that deep darkness explain such horror, death and destruction?
We have had some simply horrific things occur throughout all time and across this entire globe. With the holocaust, in our time, we can include Darfur, the ethnic cleansing in Rwanda, the killing fields in Cambodia plus the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and 9/11 in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C., the Haiti earthquake, not to mention the four most recent oil spills and millions of other devastating events. The question is how does one really believe that there is no “dark” in the face of the horrific situations clearly evident to us, all around.
Dark energy does exist, but it exists through our thoughts, fears and emotions. Millions are making choices individually and collectively which are not in Right Relationship with the Great I AM/Universal One God/Divine Creation. Where there is the appearance of darkness, what we are truly seeing is the result of a human or group of humans making decisions which are not of the Light, disconnected from All That Is, not in alignment with the Highest Good. Those who make decisions and take action, while being separated from the Light, are the creators of darkness. There is no source other than the Energy of All That Is.
We experience human catastrophe, because we have made decisions which are separated from the Light, and are not of the highest good. The decisions are highly likely to originate from fear and anger. We therefore see the absence of Light showing up as war, genocide, murder and abuse. These are all consequences of choices we or those around us have made to act upon fear, greed, jealousy, shame, guilt, hatred, anger and pride.
All the horrible and the all the wonderful things we see are a result of balance or imbalance coming from our thoughts and feelings. We have control over those thoughts and feelings and therefore, the way to a more balanced life is through attention to what we are thinking and feeling. (stay tuned for part 2)
In Exodus 3:14, Moses asks God what name shall I use for you when speaking to the children of Israel. God replies, “I am AHIAH ASHAR HIGH (The Living God, The Sovereign God). Just say I AM ( AHIYA) has sent you.” Today we are addressing the I AM Energy of All That Is. This can only be a tiny sliver of light on this subject however, hopefully enticing you to seek more.
The number one issue we as humans have with God is our thinking. We think we are separate from God. To the contrary, however, we are One with God, we simply do not have this Oneness in our consciousness. As you read this piece, keep reminding yourself, I AM One with All That Is/God. It will keep the familiar thoughts of being separate at a distance.
The I AM Energy is eternal, all loving and whole in the fullest sense of the word. This energy is within every person in body for it is the core of who we are. However, if we are to know of it, grow it, live by it, we must have some guidance and examples of how to do that. Jesus offered one way to know more about this. He said as recorded in John 8:12, “I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” There are millions in our world who do just that, follow Jesus. However, this statement, “I am the light of the world” could just as well be said by one named Fritz or Ismelda, Lauren or Machi and have powerful presence if they too knew they were One with God. Jesus resolutely knew he was One with All That Is and that is the source of the power of his declaration.
This statement by Jesus however does not mean that he is the only light of the world, that he alone is only way to learn about the I AM Energy. This exclusivity in our views of religion needs to shift. We are all of the same Creator, different sparks from the Flame of Life, different paths given from the same Source. There have been many, many ways we have been called to know of the I AM Energy within. The pathway of the Sufis, the Kabbalah, the Vedanta Sutras are all ways to cultivate a deeper personal relationship with the Energy of Creation. The issue is that millions do not go deeply enough into their chosen pathways to develop their own relationship with All That Is.
Why is this? I think perhaps because it takes a level of commitment to wholeness we are generally not ready to make. In other words, it is easier to follow the dogma, rules and expectation of a specific faith than it is to develop our own relationship with God. It feels easier to focus on all the externalities of life on Earth than it is to go within and speak with God. To develop our own knowing of All That Is, we must be in Silence, pray, ask for forgiveness, let go of our ego and embrace uncertainty in all things with the energy of positive expectation on a daily basis. Further, we have to keep reminding ourselves that we are One with God/All That Is/Great I AM.
Each of us is Divine. We each have that spark of Divinity within. However, we can choose not to seek it, know it or develop it and still live on this Earth. It is as if we have a deep pool of knowing when we are out of body and when we come into body, we have to seek the stillness and connection with God if we want to fully manifest our Divine Beings while in body. It is a practice, a way of Being, a pathway we have to choose. With this pathway comes more Peace, more Balance, more Divine Harmony, Dynamism, Freedom and Creativity. For these characteristics and many more are characteristics of Divine Presence, Brahman or the Unified Field. They are our birthright if we choose them.
If we want to actualize our I AM Energy we have to do two things simultaneously. One is to claim the I AM Energy for ourselves. The second is to train our mind to return again and again to wholeness, love, forgiveness and humility. In this way, the I AM Energy can be fully actualized in our lives and all the positive characteristics of Divine Grace become present in each of our lives. These statements can help us begin to embrace our I AM Energy and call it forth in our lives.
I AM the loving expression of God manifest in my body.
I AM One with All That Is.
I AM the Wholeness and Peace I seek.
I AM the mighty Flame of God’s Divine Presence.
I AM expansive consciousness, loving all in my pathway.
Put one or two of these statements which speak to you some place you will see them every day. Speak them out loud frequently for thirty days and your consciousness will have the chance to change its pattern of perception.
The doorway into the I AM Energy is paved by consistent, loving effort over time. This is one way you can open this pathway more powerfully to receive all the blessings of being One with All That Is. This knowing is already deeply embedded in your full consciousness, it just needs an invitation to be more accessible in your present body or daily consciousness.
Over many years, I have learned to use a particular type of prayer for spiritual healing. My prayers for wholeness have evolved and changed, continually seeking to capture the inherent power of Divine Presence.
I call this specific type of prayer, unifying prayer. Unifying prayer differs from intercessory prayer, centering prayer or supplication prayer, in that unifying prayer specifically emerges from knowing that we are One with All That Is. Unifying prayer calls upon our own Divine Resources, within a sacred space, working with other Divine Energy Beings for the purpose of calling forth Divine Grace for a person, place or situation.
Unifying prayer comes from
- knowing that we and God, are One
- knowing that Right Relationship with All That Is is our natural state
- knowing that seeming imbalances can be transformed or shifted through Divine Grace
Healing comes from Divine Grace. Healing does not come from medicine, our prayers, surgery or therapy. All these things do have their place in healing but are really ways through which Divine Grace is made available through caring individuals in the course of one’s healing. This is a very important distinction. Healing comes from Divine Grace, the energy of Divine Presence being received by those needing healing. Many, many healing modalities can be employed to enable Divine Grace to be received.
If medicine healed in and of itself, all people with a cold would be able to take the exact same medicines and all would heal, every time. Because healing comes from Divine Grace, we have to receive this energy to heal. We may not even be consciously aware of receiving Divine Grace but that is what leads to healing. Generally imbalances manifesting as illness in the body come from blocked energy we humans have created, held onto, nurtured, etc., which disconnects us from Divine Grace. When medicine, prayers, therapy help us release blocked energy, we have the opportunity to reconnect with Divine Presence.
Divine Grace is Love in action. Every time I work with someone who is out of balance physically or mentally, I begin by opening Sacred Space so that I can join with other Divine Energy Beings to work together to call forth Divine Presence for a person, place or situation.
This is what I say:
I call forth my I Am Self ( the part of me that is wholly Divine) , the Ascended Masters, the Angelic Host, the Divine Cosmic Light Beings of the Universe, the Nature Intelligences, Divine Ancestors and Divine Physicians to help me hold this Sacred Healing and Wisdom Circle.
Because I am of Divine Essence like all beings, I have the authority, right and power to call such a circle into existence for the purpose of healing. I imagine that together we are very powerful. Together, all that I call forth is amplified by the Divine Beings working with me. Further, when I listen, the exact wording needed for a person or situation often emerges from the combined knowing of Divine Beings. Still though, in all situations and in all ways, Divine Grace does the re-balancing, the healing, the pacing of the energy shifts, creation and implementation of the plan. I simply call Divine Grace forth, knowing that balance, wholeness and peace is the natural state of bodies, places and situations.
Unifying Prayer begins with the knowing that God and I are One, inseparably, for all eternity. This is the aspect of unifying prayer which sets it apart from all other prayer. This type of prayer emerges out of this knowing of Oneness with all things. Therefore, in unifying prayer, the Lord’s Prayer for example becomes, you give us this day our daily bread, you forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. You lead us not into temptation and you deliver us from evil. In the use of this wording, we are affirming the power of the Great Oneness/God from our sense of knowing of the Oneness ourselves.
Divine Grace, we call forth the Sacred Flame from within Emil to consume the blocked spiritual and fear energy manifesting as depression and self-inflicted pain. This unifying prayer restates our connection with All That Is by affirming that the Sacred Flame is within Emil. The prayer names fear and blocked energy as the reasons behind the manifestation of the imbalances in his life. No power is given to the imbalances. The act of calling forth the Sacred Flame itself is an act of Oneness, recognizing that all people can call forth the sacred flame form of God.
God please help Emil because he is a good person and has lost his way. This prayer assumes that the person praying, God, and Emil are all separate from one another. These words give the impression that God needs to be informed that Emil is a good person. Also, inherent in this prayer is an assumption that help for Emil is not being given by God at the present time. Further, this prayer bases the request for help on a judgement that because Emil is a good person, he deserves help. This stance goes against the Divine order which again and again states that the Highest Good is always what is being desired for us.
I see the Light in Emil and call for the highest benevolent outcome of his current circumstances. This is a unifying prayer affirming that the Light, a form of God, is within Emil. Further, the specifics of the outcome are left to All That Is. However, our calling this energy into this dimension from the realm of unformed energy is very powerful and supports the presence of Divine Grace for Emil.
We lift Emil into the Light and pray for his complete recovery from depression. This is not a unifying prayer because it talks about lifting Emil into “the Light” meaning that Emil is now, out of the Light. We are always in Light even when we are manifesting energy which is out of balance. Further, depression is spoken about here as a condition with its own power rather than as a condition which is temporarily present due to blocked energy which can always be transformed by Divine Grace.
Our words are powerful healing tools. Use prayers which reflect the power we are working with. Make certain that your prayers affirm the Oneness, All Power, All Knowing, Omnipresent characteristics of God. When the words correctly and powerfully reflect the Truth that is God, they are charged with a power beyond human means. They then carry the charge of the power of the Great Grace to heal.
