How to Use the Violet Flame
For best results, set aside a time each day dedicated to the violet flame. You can give violet-flame decrees anywhere, anytime—in your car, while doing chores or before going to bed. In fact, simply repeating a violet-flame mantra anytime you feel tense, tired or irritated can make the difference. But you will get the greatest benefit from the violet flame if you set aside at least fifteen minutes a day to decree without interruption.
Find a place where you won’t be disturbed. It’s best to decree in a place dedicated to spiritual work, such as a chapel or a well-lit, clean and aired room. Poor lighting, dust, untidiness and stale air impede the flow of spiritual energy. On your altar, if you have one, you can put candles, crystals, flowers and photographs of saints, Ascended Masters and your loved ones.
Sit comfortably in a straight chair with your spine and head erect, legs and arms uncrossed and feet flat on the floor. Rest your hands on your upper legs, with palms facing upwards. Take a few, slow deep breaths and center in your heart. Start out slowly, giving the decree with love, devotion and feeling.
One of the simplest decrees to the violet flame is:
“I AM a being of violet fire!
I AM the purity God desires!”
Repeat the decree three or nine times to begin with; you can gradually increase this to 36, 72 or even 144 repetitions. Repeating the decree strengthens its power and draws down more light.
Once you are familiar with the decree, you can close your eyes while giving it and concentrate on visualizing the violet flame. See yourself before a large bonfire, about nine feet high and six feet wide. Color it violet in your imagination, and see the flames pulsating and undulating in endless shades of violet with gradations of purple and pink. Then see yourself stepping into the flame, so the violet flame is where you physically are. See your body as transparent, with the flames curling up from beneath your feet, passing through and around your body, clear up over your head.
Often the words of a violet flame decree invoke ideas for other violet flame visualizations – decreeing is meant to be fun so be creative and use your imagination!
To those who have developed their spiritual sight, the violet flame appears as a physical violet fire. You may also be able to “see” the violet flame at work with your inner eye, by concentrating on the spiritual center between your eyebrows.
You can also use the violet flame to help family and friends. Just visualize the violet flame around them while you give the decree, and add a prayer before you start. The violet flame can also help others that you might not be aware of.
After you have finished decreeing, you can ask:
“In the name of the Christ within me,
I ask that this violet flame be multiplied
and used to assist all souls on this planet who are in need.
I thank you and accept it done
according to the will of God.”
Even a few minutes of violet flame will produce results, but persistence is needed to penetrate age-old habits you would like to change. You can start out with just a few minutes of violet flame in the morning to help you through the day, and you can add the violet flame to whatever prayers or meditations you currently practice.
