THE VIOLET FLAME
The violet flame is the essence of one of the "seven rays." Just as a ray of sunlight passing through a prism is refracted into the seven colors of the rainbow, so spiritual light manifests as seven rays. Each ray has a specific color, frequency and quality of God's consciousness. The violet ray is known as the seventh ray. When you invoke it in the name of God, it descends as a beam of spiritual energy and bursts into a spiritual flame in your heart as the qualities of mercy, forgiveness, justice, freedom and transmutation.
Saint Germain is known as the Lord of the Seventh Ray. Each time we pray to him, he brings us many gifts of the Spirit-his joy, diplomacy and creativity. He can inspire us with his innovations in science, literature, religion, government, philosophy, education, healing, alchemy and other fields.
For almost seventy years, Saint Germain has been preparing us to enter into the age of Aquarius, an era of peace, freedom and enlightenment. He appeared to Guy Ballard in the early 1930s and gave him the first teaching on the violet flame.
Saint Germain said that after centuries of keeping the knowledge of the violet flame secret, the Masters had decided to release its use to the public during this crucial time. Saint Germain has said, "The use of the violet consuming flame is more valuable to you and to all mankind than all the wealth, all the gold and all the jewels of this planet." (The Voice of the I AM January 1941 p.20)
The violet flame works a little like soap. Soap gets dirt out of your clothes by using the positive and negative charges of atoms. It works because each of its molecules has two sides-a side that is attracted to dirt and a side that is attracted to water. The dirt-loving side attracts the dirt, like a magnet attracts paper clips when it is dragged through a box of them. The water-loving side sticks to the water, carrying the dirt with it.
When we invoke the violet flame, it sets up a polarity between the nucleus of the atom and the white-fire core of the flame. The nucleus, being matter, assumes the negative pole; the white-fire core of the violet flame, being Spirit, assumes the positive pole.
The interaction between the nucleus of the atom and the light in the violet flame establishes an oscillation. This oscillation dislodges the densities that are trapped between the electrons orbiting the nucleus. As this hardened substance that weighs down the atom is loosened, it is thrown into the violet flame and carried away.
But unlike soap, the violet flame does not simply surround and remove the debris; it transforms it into pure light-energy. Freed of this debris, the electrons begin to move more freely, thus raising our vibration and propelling us into a more spiritual state of being.
People do notice a spiritual and physical difference when they use the violet flame. But what actually happens when we repeat the words of a violet-flame decree?
I can give you two perspectives on this-the spiritual perspective as it has been revealed to me by the Ascended Masters and a scientific perspective based on recent developments in physics and medicine. Both explanations involve the concept of vibration.
In physics, vibration is the speed at which something moves back and forth, or oscillates. As I understand it, at a spiritual level vibration is also the rate of spin of the electrons as they move around the nucleus of the atom. As we will see, these definitions may not be far apart.
We each have four bodies that are envelopes of our soul: (1) the physical body, which we can see and touch; (2) the desire, or astral, body, which contains our emotions; (3) the mental body, which is our conscious mind; and (4) the etheric, or memory, body, which contains the memories of all of our past lives. The violet flame works on these four lower bodies by changing the rate of their vibration.
Saint Germain has given us the violet-flame decree:
"I AM a being of violet fire!
I AM the purity God desires!"
When you recite this and other violet-flame decrees, the violet flame permeates every cell and atom of your body, into your mind, your emotions, your subconscious and your memory.
What does the violet flame do when it permeates your atoms? The Masters have given the following explanation.
We all know that atoms are mostly empty space. If an atom were the size of a basketball, its nucleus would still be too small for our eyes to see. Yet 99.9 percent of the mass of the atom is concentrated in the nucleus, leaving the rest of that basketball as empty space, inhabited solely by electrons, which weigh very little. All that empty space
between the nucleus and the edge of the atom is where discord and negative energy can become stuck.
At the cellular and molecular level, this substance appears as dust, soot, tar or even cement. The Masters have used the illustration of someone taking a pail of molten tar and pouring it over a barrel full of marbles. The space between the marbles gets gummed up by the tar running down, and soon the whole mass is welded together.
The Masters tell us that when our physical and spiritual bodies become clogged by negative energy and karma, it slows down the vibration of the electrons in our four lower bodies. We then begin to resonate more with negativity and less with the pure cosmic energy that comes from our God Presence, and eventually we can become ill. The more substance there is in our four lower bodies, the lower our rate of vibration and the more burdened we become. Spiritually, this is why people die.
If you have studied acupuncture and yoga, you know that optimum health comes when spiritual energy is flowing freely through our bodies. When karmic substance solidifies, it's like the hardening of the arteries of our spiritual bodies. When we resonate with this negativity, we will gradually become it unless we do something to turn ourselves around.
The violet fire transmutes anything negative that is lodged anywhere in your spiritual or physical being. This includes everything from kernels of self-hatred to physical viruses. When the violet flame goes to work, it passes through the clogged spaces between the electrons and the nuclei. It ejects these particles of dense substance from your body and dissolves them. This process transmutes the negative energy into positive energy and restores it to its native purity.

The Violet Flame
If you are familiar with physics you will be aware that violet is at the top end of the spectrum of visible light, just before infrared. It has the highest vibration of the visible light spectrum. In spiritual matters, violet is the highest colour healing light, typically associated with the crown chakra. When you are working with healing, in a number of different traditions, you are often called upon to visualise a violet light to help you in your healing.
The violet flame is a particular aspect of the use of violet visualisation revealed by an Ascended Master known as Saint Germain. The Violet Flame transmutes negative into positive and can be used to "pay off" negative karma, not just for yourself, but for others and for the earth herself. It is a great tool for affecting change in your life, and helping you deal with issues in your life.
To use the Violet Flame on yourself you need to first centre yourself and to breathe regularly. Make sure you do this in a quiet place where you are not likely to be disturbed. Visualise a violet light engulfing you, just like a flame. See it flickering around your body from the core all the way to the outside, transmuting the negativity into positivity, and burning off old karma. Whilst holding this in your mind, you repeat one of the Violet Flame decrees listed at the bottom of this section.
Saint Germain also teaches that if you do the above Violet Flame exercise for twenty minutes on the 23rd of each month then you can transmute all the karma you have accumulated during that month in one go.
If you wish to deal with specific issues in yourself, for example, transmuting certain negative emotions, try visualising yourself sitting by a campfire that is burning with a violet fire. Again still and centre yourself first, and then visualise yourself putting these parts of you into the fire and watching them transmute. Repeat one of the Violet Flame mantras whilst doing so.
You can use the Violet Flame not just to help clear your karma and issues, but to also deal with problems between yourself and other people, for example, your spouse, your boss, colleagues, etc. Do this by repeating a Violet Flame decree whilst visualising the Violet Flame going between you and the other person, or just surrounding the other person, or even the earth engulfed in Violet Flame.
When you use the Violet Flame on the earth itself, you are not just helping to balance your own karma, but also that of everyone on the world, including the earth herself. This is a very good visualisation to do. You can home in on particular areas of the world that are experiencing problems and send Violet Flame there.
With all these exercises, do them for as long as you feel right. You will intuitively know when you have done enough and feel the urge to stop. Of course, at any time when doing the Violet Flame visualisations, you can also call upon the power of Saint Germain to help you in your endeavours, and boost the strength of your Flame.
These are just a few Violet Flame decrees to get you started, but you can make up your own if you wish that work for you.
I am a being of Violet Fire
I am the purity God Desires
Within the Violet Flame does burn
And through it so do we learn
To clear the past and free our soul
That on to union we may go
I am one with the Violet Flame
I am now free of all shame
My karma now I do clear
And that of those I hold dear
Violet Flame fill me now
Bring me harmony in the Tao
Violet Flame burning bright
Fill me full of Gods' own light
Violet Flame, karma clearer
To God now bring me nearer
I AM a being of Violet Fire,
I AM the purity of right desire!
I move within the Violet Flame,
It purges me of all fear and shame,
All guilt and death must pass away,
I call you forth oh divine flame!
Violet Fire come keep me secure,
That darkness' grip shall no longer endure,
Unfold my being with sheer delight,
Come banish the evil spirits of night!
In the name of my higher self that governs my destiny,
Send me the violet flame. Let every negative
Condition be cast off my soul and purified in the
White light of the God and Goddess.
