The lamp is lit and glows within.
Embraced within the innocent child,
our gateway to God.
Dancing in equilibrium
with our divine masculine and feminine spirits,
a union of hearts.
In a symphony of Light and color and sonic vibratory frequency,
lines and circles intersect,
birthing our Golden Rose Galaxy,
a space of Divine, unconditional Love.
In the garden of roses,
the thorns are yielding,
as we move forward gently,
loving and accepting without judgment,
surrendering and appreciating with compassion and Love,
All That We Are.
Mind and heart unite.
Victory is experienced,
in the triumph over perceived obstacles and challenges,
loving all that arises.
The petals of the Christed Heart activate,
divine inspiration ignites,
multidimensional realities present,
all is Love,
all is Love.
Welcome sweet ones, it gives us great pleasure to be with you in this sacred month of May. Having recently experienced the Wesak Full Moon energies, many of you will have experienced a deeper sense of the rays of creation through Shamballa, the etheric Spiritual Headquarters on this sacred earth housing the ray ashrams of the first twelve rays.
As we have previously mentioned sweet ones,the rays themselves come directly from the Cosmic Heart of Mother/Father God Overlighted by a Co-Creative Council of Twelve. They are stepped down in vibration at each dimensional level until they enter our Solar System. The rays then spiral onto Earth, and into Shamballa, the Spiritual headquarters of our Earth plane and the related ashrams. From here, they spiral out into the Unity Grid, the Planetary Crystalline Grid of Light as well as into the vortices, leylines and sacred sites within and around the Earth plane.
As you make your journey to Earth for this incarnation, you are basked in a "signature" ray, one of the first three rays of Will and Power, Love-Wisdom and Divine Intelligence respectively. Additionally, like a spectrum of rainbow colors, you receive the Light encodings of all rays, which you work with and integrate through both the lower and higher qualities to these rays.
Through the rays you are taken into a deeper understanding of the infinite possibilities existing in Life and how to harness this potentiality in such a way as to step deeper into loving all that arises. And sweet ones, in the Temple Teachings of the Eye of Horus, we are linking you the rays related to these Temples, as you come deeper into the knowing and experience of yourselves as these sacred transfiguring Flames of Divine Love and Initiates of Light.
In this sacred month, it is the Temple of Compassion which illuminates the pathway of Divine Love in a compassionate loving of Self and others, Overlighted by Lord Melchizedek and the Order of Melchizedek, Archangel Haniel and additionally, the Sisterhood of the Rose.
This Temple is brought into being through the sphere of Victory (Netzach), on the Tree of Life and Jacob's Ladder, as well as the energy of the fourth ray of Harmony through Conflict, a beautiful Emerald Green Flame of Creativity and Beauty, Overlighted by the Ray Masters of Shamballa and Lord Buddha, and enfolded within the Angelic frequencies of Archangel Haniel, as well as the Sisterhood of the Light, who come forward, linking you through the Temple of Compassion into Venus and into Mother Mary's Temple of the Immaculate Heart.
Essentially sweet ones, the Temple of Compassion acknowledges your worthiness, and your courage as these sacred transfiguring Flames of Divine Love in creating the Path of Love for yourselves and others, and the many perceived challenges you have faced to come to the knowing of yourselves as Love. This has not been an easy journey for you sweet ones, and whilst you continue to embrace the sub-personality aspects that have forgotten that they are Love in experiencing the full range of human emotions, the compassion that activates now from within your Christed Heart and through this Temple, brings a new balance and equilibrium. Having experienced your own "suffering" and being affected to move to action when others are experiencing their own suffering, deepens your empathy and compassion towards yourselves and others. Additionally, through the embrace of the inner child, your innocence and divinity and a deeper re-union of hearts between your Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine spirits, you experience a greater level of Divine Inspiration, creativity, intuition, empathy and clear communication as you walk the path of Divine Love, knowing how worthy, precious and magnificent you truly are. This further brings with it the ability to see the path you are on with clarity and focus, with the power to release old comfort zones no longer comfortable, as well as addictive patterns, behaviors or relationships. With heroic effort, you rise above perceived challenges, surrendering to the Divine, knowing that the highest outcome will always prevail, whilst "seeing" the next step of your Soul's journey.
So, let's us move into this transmission now, entering into the Temple of Compassion. Starting now by bringing a focus to the breath. Breathing deep into the lower body as you expand the lower abdomen on the in breath, and on the out breath contract the lower abdomen, inhaling and exhaling through the nose. Good. Just getting a sense of these deep rhythmic breaths, these inhales and exhales, as you bring your conscious awareness to any part of the body that may be in dis-ease or discomfort, sending your Love to this area, appreciating and accepting all that you are as this precious, magnificent sacred transfiguring Flame of Divine Love.

Amplifying now into a deeper experience of the rebalancing of your emotional and mental bodies, physical and spiritual bodies. Wonderful sweet ones.
And now you see before you the Trinity Lords of Light ~ Lord Michael, Lord Metatron and Lord Melchizedek, as they now activate their Shield of Light around this diamond sphere 54 feet in diameter around you, sweet ones. They now bring in this beautiful twelve pointed star with two infinity symbols embedded upon the star, one horizontal and one vertical, taking you deeper into alignment within the Divine Blueprints of Creation, and the I AM Avatar Consciousness of Light.
As you now state: "I activate the Trinity Lords Shield of Light around my body and energy field ~ Activate, Activate, Activate." Good, sweet ones.
You are now ready to enter the Temple of Compassion and you have a sense now of ArchangelHaniel standing to the right of you, and your Melchizedek Master Guide to the left of you, as you bring a focus now to Temple of Compassion.
As a portal of Light activates around your Shield of Light, you enter now into this Temple of Compassion. You are surrounded now in this beautiful Emerald Green, Pink-Blue, and Diamond Flame of Light, hearing the chants of "Jehovah 'Tsebayoth. Lord of Hosts. Jehovah 'Tsebayoth. Lord of Hosts. Jehovah 'Tsebayoth. Lord of Hosts".
As you experience these ray frequencies within the Temple of Equilibrium sweet ones, you see that you are dressed in this beautifulemerald green ceremonial robe, with the symbol of the Flower of Life and the six-pointed star on the back of the robe, bringing a focus to the teachings of the Eye of Horus, the teachings of the Order of Melchizedek. And upon your left breast three flames appear; the Diamond Flame of Melchizedek Consciousness, the Pink-Blue Flame of Union and Unconditional Love, and within this, the Emerald Green Flame of Creativity and Courage. At the center of these flames is the symbol of a Golden Rose.
Good sweet ones. As you look around you now, you see that you are in beautiful garden of red roses, as you just take in the scent and essence of Divine Love in this Temple of Compassion. And now, you bring your focus to the heart-shaped altar in the center of the Temple, surrounded in a ring of fire. Upon this altar, you now see a golden vase with seven golden roses. You get a sense now, sweet ones, of your connection to Mother Earth, deepening into the Unity Grid, and just feeling the energy of Love, of the Divine Mother embracing you, appreciating you and loving you.
As you deepen into your Christed Heart feeling this deep compassion and Love for yourselves sweet ones, you gently experience the kundalini energy activating from the perineum center and base chakra, and moving through the chakras. You may like to rock the body backwards and forwards and from side to side in these deep rhythmic breaths, breathing in to the count of seven, and releasing to the count of seven. Good.
Archangel Haniel now comes forward, and places the symbol of a crescent moon with a small dove beneath it, within your Christed Heart, as you find yourselves activating the petals of your Christed Heart: your peaceful heart, your loving heart, your healing heart, your joyful and happy heart, your innocent and open heart, your powerful heart, your knowing heart, your passionate heart, your overflowing and prosperous heart, your trusting heart, your heart of integrity and truth, and now your intimate heart.
Archangel Haniel now lights her lantern, illuminating your Soul Light and the essence of Divine Love from within your Christed Heart. As this Flame of Light expands from within your Christed Heart in the essence of compassion, you now find yourselves surrounded by the Sisterhood of the Rose. Mother Mary, Lady Nada, Lady Portia, Lady Quan Yin, Lady Venus, Lady Hathor, Lady Pallas Athena, White Buffalo Woman and all other Divine Feminine Deities that you are familiar with, as they now surround you in a ring of fire.
And now around your body appears wreaths upon wreaths of red roses, as you feel and sense now a greater level of your innocence and the Overlighting of your Beloved I Am Presence. And now, you have sense of linking into Shamballa, feeing and sensing the rays of creation, the Ascended Masters and the energy of Lord Buddha, as a vortex of Light activates around your Shield of Light. And now, Lord Buddha steps forward to activate the Flame of Compassion within your Christed Heart to the maximum Cosmic Law can allow. Wonderful sweet ones.
Lady Venus steps forward now, and links you to the energy of Venus, to the Divine, unconditional Love exists throughout this multi-universe and connecting into your beautiful Soul Light.

Archangel Haniel now lets you know that the seven golden roses upon the altar are known as the Seven Golden Roses of Compassion. Each rose brings a deeper level of compassion and knowing of yourselves as Love, knowing how worthy you are, how appreciated and celebrated you are.
Archangel Haniel now hands you the first Golden Rose of Compassion, representing the innocence and divinity of your magical, innocent child.
To deepen into your Divinity, the joy and innocence of Who You Are sweet ones, requires of you to initially love the inner child. For deep within the petals of your Christed Heart, your inner child awaits, waiting to be recognized and acknowledged, remembered, and loved. She is the voice within you that needs to be seen and heard and appreciated. She is the voice within you that may feel invisible, unsafe or unworthy of Love. She is also the voice within you that experiences beauty and curiosity, creativity and joy, when her beliefs and imaginations create her dreams in Divine inspirations. She is the voice of sovereignty. She is the voice of innocence and your pathway to God.
In this magical Temple and garden of roses, surrounded by the Order of Melchizedek, Archangel Haniel, the Sisterhood of the Rose, your Beloved I Am Presence, and wrapped in Diamond Flame of Melchizedek Consciousness, the Pink-Blue Flame of Union and Unconditional Love, and within this, the Emerald Green Flame of Creativity and Courage, you now invite your inner child to join you.

You let her know: "I Love, I hear you, I appreciate you. Please forgive me for not truly seeing you. I am here now and I am not going anywhere. I Love you. I Love you". Good sweet ones. And now you just see what she wants to do. To play, to draw, to run around this garden. Whatever she is wanting or needing at this time to feel loved and appreciated.
And now, sweet ones, as you connect more deeply with your inner child now, just ask her if she can take you to the point of a traumatic childhood experience, to the first time she felt scared or sad. As you are taken back to this timeline, you just comfort your inner child, hugging and loving her as you ask what you can do for her. You just observe this scene, as the Love from within your Christed Heart overflows to this inner child aspect of yourselves sweet ones. You know now that that you will always be seen and heard, loved and appreciated through your compassionate loving heart as you embrace and Love your inner child. Wonderful.

Blessings and greetings dear ones, I am Master El Morya, I bring forth to you the Divine Will and Divine Plan of the Creator upon a powerful energy wave to lovingly penetrate and synthesis with your being. I am known as the Master of the 1st Ray of Light; it is my purpose to distribute the Divine Will and Divine Plan of the Creator through my being to all.
The Creator is constantly emanating guidance, assistance and multiple purposes for all, as a whole and individually. The Divine Plan and Will of the Creator are akin to a sacred map that already exists within you, which can be activated to receive more guidance and divine intervention in your life. There are so many levels of the Divine Will and Plan of the Creator, the knowledge, illumination, understanding and guidance you receive depends on your willingness to expand your mind and perspective, receive and listen within.
Your soul is drawing upon the 1st Ray of Light with great force, downloading the red light into your soul’s presence within your physical body. This is the same for all souls upon the Earth.
Over the recent months, your soul has been focused upon downloading and anchoring greater, new and expansive aspects of your soul into your physical being. Your soul wishes to become ever more present within your physical form and reality until the full presence of your soul and even soul group are seamlessly synthesised and present within your physical body.
Thus, you experience yourself as being enlightened because you are able to access more of the energy and wisdom of your soul and soul group while being in a physical body.
The veils that separate your soul, your physical body and reality will fall away, and there will be no separation between your energetic existence and physical existence.
Your soul is drawing the 1st Ray energy into your being to support it in experiencing, manifesting and becoming the Divine Plan it holds within its essence. Your soul is on a mission of full conscious experience within your physical body, and it has a plan or map of how this can be achieved in the most fulfilling way for you while being of service upon the Earth in the most magnificent way.
It may be at this point that you wish to know what the plan or map unfolding from your soul is. I cannot share this with you. However, I can share with you the ways in which your soul is supporting this magnificent synthesis between inner planes/heaven and Earth within your being.
Supporting Your Soul
I wish to suggest that you call upon the appropriate vibration of 1st Ray Light to penetrate your soul assisting your soul in bringing its Divine Plan and the Divine Will of the Creator into your physical form upon the Earth. Imagine the red light of the 1st Ray flowing into your heart chakra and higher heart chakra. Imagine, sense or acknowledge that this creates the most beautiful jewel of red light which is filled with such depth of knowledge and power. The 1st Ray of Light will further activate and awaken the Divine Plan of your soul, bringing it further into embodiment within your physical being and conscious mind.
The Current Mission of Your Soul
Universal Law Codes
Within your soul exists the Universal Laws, these are akin to codes of light which allow and encourage each soul to experience the fullness of the Creator whether they are on the Earth or within the Universe of the Creator. The Universal Laws encourage all to exist in harmony and unity together, to share only the truth of the Creator, to be a creative expression and instigator of the Creator, to expand to all that is the Creator and much more.
The more your soul is embodied within your physical body, the more you will naturally access and become the Universal Laws. They are not guideline or rules. Instead, they simply express numerous states of Creator experience, awakening and synthesis within your being and spiritual evolution. Your soul is currently accessing the Universal Laws it holds within its essence and aligning these Universal Laws with your entire physical form, including your emotions and mind. Not only will this create heightened states of Creator awareness it will also create reprogramming, rejuvenation and greater volumes of light within your being.
To support your soul, you can ask me, Master El Morya, or any Ascended Master of your choice to assist in rewiring, reconnecting and attuning the Universal Laws held within the essence of your soul with your entire physical body, including your emotional and mental body.
Video: " How Your Soul is Assisting Your Ascension by Master El Morya"
To support your soul in grounding more fully into your physical form and reality while reprogramming your subconscious and conscious minds, your soul is calling upon numerous light bodies of wisdom and higher knowledge. From more advanced aspects of your soul and your soul group, your soul is drawing bodies of light filled with necessary wisdom, higher knowledge, enlightenment, inspiration and truth. These are akin to light capsules of knowledge from your higher self that synthesises and merge with your entire being.
Each light body of wisdom called forth by your soul supports your soul in grounding more fully. With each synthesis your physical body raises in energetic vibration and light frequency. It also instigates a deep clearing process within your subconscious and conscious minds allowing for numerous fears, limitations and illusions to be cast aside.
To support your soul and your entire being in integrating the light bodies of wisdom from higher aspects of your soul and soul group, you can take a few moments in your day to call upon the cleansing light of your soul to purify your entire being. Then ask your soul to bring forth to you the necessary light bodies of wisdom which require to be synthesised with your being to enhance the presence of your soul.
You may see, sense or acknowledge the presence of the light bodies around you, which are a higher aspect of your being. When you feel ready, simply allow yourself to focus on being open to receive.
Relax your entire being, feel as if you are unfolding every part of your being in order to receive powerful vibrations of light and wisdom. The more you relax, the more you receive, and the more you allow the synthesis process to take place naturally and easily. This is all that is required.
You may experience your body being filled with bright light and your mind experiencing a greater freedom and expansion. This process can be achieved daily or once a week, whichever feels most appropriate. It is a beautiful way of liberating your entire being including your soul while creating a deeper connection to self and the Creator.
Cosmic Light Frequencies
To support its further embodiment within your being, your soul is downloading the pure and advanced light frequencies of the Cosmic Level, anchoring these beams of light into your entire being, especially your physical body. These Cosmic Light Frequencies act as gentle pulsations to awaken light, codes and templates already present within your physical body and energy bodies.
Your soul is using cosmic light frequencies to almost jolt your entire being into awakening to the presence of the Creator within and around you. It is a process of awakening your inner remembrance.
It is important to be aware that this is most likely to take place when you are in your sleep state as your physical and energetic bodies are most receptive at this time and it will not alarm your conscious mind. If you do wake from your sleep state or relaxation with feelings of pulsations or jolts of energy flowing through you, simply acknowledge that your soul is in a process of awakening your being to aid further synthesis with your soul. Then call upon me, Master El Morya, your guides or an Ascended Master of your choosing to lend their energy and support to you, enhancing your comfort during this awakening process.
Deciphering the Ego from the Soul
You may have noticed that your soul is inviting you more and more to trust yourself, in doing so it is asking your ego to trust in your soul. This is a very valuable transition, because it doesn’t matter how focused you are upon your spiritual evolution if you cannot trust both your ego and your soul, and are unable to decipher between your ego and your soul, you will not be able to fully embody your soul and higher aspects at a physical level.
A simple and valuable way to distinguish between your ego and soul is to ask yourself when observing your thoughts, emotions and actions whether they are born from fear, separation and limitations or love, peace and expansion. Your soul always wishes to create, instigate and experience love, peace and expansion. Sometimes your soul may challenge you. However, the outcome will always be fulfilling, liberating and awakening.
My communication with you today is simply to remind you that your soul is assisting and guiding its further integration with your entire being with every moment, by guiding beautiful steps of awakening and drawing upon benevolent tools from the universe of the Creator.
With love and respect for your current spiritual journey,
Help us to anchor the energy of the New Age on Earth. Get inspired and set up a grid with the intention to help HEAL Mother Earth and all Her Beings from the wounds of the past and WEAVE a new net of living LIGHT all around the planet to help all life forms evolve into Unity Consciousness.
Ascension is not about leaving the world - it is about bringing HEAVEN down to EARTH!
We are the living BRIDGE between the worlds and dimensions, between HEAVEN AND EARTH. We are free to move in TIME and SPACE when we enter the SACRED SPACE of the Divine Chamber of the HEART where the ThreeFold Flame resides and the god given Divine Blueprint is waiting to be downloaded into our earth bodies.
I have to tell you that when you as a conscious disciple manage the Violet Flame, a parallel activity of the Violet Flame is initiated internally. This results in the vibrational awakening of your chakras. Therefore, each time when you use the gift of the Violet Flame you are asked not only to focalize your attention on what you want to transmute but also on the internal activity which takes place within yourself.
One of the consequences of the continual use of the Violet Flame is the accelerated awakening of all your chakras, you will, step by step, wake up in a different world from where you live now.
This is the space for you to ORGANISE your personal connexion group, to look for likeminded people, to introduce yourSELF and say what you would like to contribute to the every expanding NET OF LIGHT around the world.
