Messenger of the Ascended Masters

My first Thursday night lecture at the Quaker Meeting House would prove to be representative of the many that I would spend there over the next several months. I drove over and returned with a carload of other “initiates” – half of whom became Keepers of the Flame and half of whom did not.

The routine never varied. We would gather together at John and Marianne’s to be joined by Lou, a health food store owner and six year meditator, and talk on the way to and from only about “the teachings.” There were so many covering so many are as that you could never exhaust them.

The Quaker Meeting House itself was a piece of pure Americana. Built in the mid-1600’s, it contained a cozy room of thick masonry walls, hardwood floors, and a HUGE early American fireplace. It was an intimate setting, quiet and relaxed. In the back the “Adepts” who would instruct us in the mysteries of the ages set up tapes, books, and magazines that explained all areas of the “teachings.”

Most were stated or written by Mary Beth Visionary, the self-proclaimed “Messenger” of these Ascended Masters” who spoke through her. They also called her “the world mother.”

Above the fireplace on the mantelpiece rested the “Chart of the Mighty I AM Presence” It was given a prominent place in every lecture they delivered, and they would always announce that if you stared at it long enough you would surely come to understand its power.

As I entered, I was greeted by the instructors and warmly welcomed. There was no high-pressure selling. They were much too sophisticated for that. Their technique was to lure you in in such a way that, as nothing was threatening; you would never realize you were snagged until it was far too late.

We were all invited to take our seats in a circle and join in several simple decrees. We were told that these decrees were like prayers that were given to us by the Ascended Masters to accelerate our ascension into heaven. They began to chant in a hypnotic tone so-called “Head, Heart and Hand” decrees.

“Violet fire thou love divine

Blaze within this heart of mine

Thou art forever true

Keep me always in mercy with you...”

This decree would be repeated three times and then they would speed it up until the words blend into sounds that were not clearly distinguishable.

“I AM light thou Christ in me

“Set my mind forever free

Violet fire forever shine

Deep within this mind of mine.

God who give my daily bread

With violet fire fill my head

Till Thy radiance heaven like

Makes my mind a mind of light...”

They deliberately repeated these decrees slow for noninitiates like me in the very beginning. And they would distribute a pamphlet that contained the decrees so that you could follow along as they increased their pace.

“I AM the hand of God in action

Gaining victory every day

My pure soul’s great satisfaction

Is to walk the Middle way...”

Next was the “Tube of Light” decree which was said to expand your tube of light so that the Ascended Masters could directly instruct you without the necessity of an intervening authority.

“Beloved I AM presence bright

Round me seal your tube of light

From ascended master flame

Called forth now in God’s own name

Let it keep my temple free

From all discord sent to me

I AM calling forth violet fire

To blaze and transmute all desire

Keeping on in freedom’s name

Till I Am one of the violet flame.”

As they got into the middle group of decrees they would speed up the tempo so that novices like me had great difficulty keeping up with them. This was for forgiveness.

“I AM forgiveness acting here

Casting out all doubt and fear

Setting men forever free

With wings of cosmic victory.

I AM calling in full power

For forgiveness every hour

To all life in every place

I call forth forgiving grace...”

Then we recited a decree for material enrichment.

“I AM free from fear and doubt

Casting want and misery out

Knowing now all good supply

Ever comes from realms on high.

I AM the hands of God’s own fortune

Flood forth the reassures of light

Now receiving abundance

To supply each need of life.”

Another decree was for a total change of the exterior. You can imagine the implications of this one.

“I AM changing all my garments

Old ones of the bright new day

With the sun of understanding

I AM shining all the way

I AM light within without

I AM light all about

Fill me free me glorify me

Seal me heal me purify me.”

From this point on I sort of lost my place as they went into another decree. I heard the last part of the final decree and was confused by it.

“All Hail! I AM the living ChristThe ever loving one

Ascended now with full God power

I Am a blazing sun.”
