(from Vials of the Seven Last Plagues, dictations from the Seven Archangels to the Messenger Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Summit University Press, copyright 1976) "In the name of the beloved mighty victorious Presence of God, I AM in me, my very own beloved Holy Christ Self, Holy Christ Selves of all mankind, the seven beloved archangels, beloved Lanello, the entire Spirit of the Great White Brotherhood and the World Mother and through the magnetic power of the sacred fire vested within the threefold flame of love, wisdom and power burning within my heart, I decree: 1. Holy Christ Self above me, Thou balance of my soul, Let thy blessed radiance Descend and make me whole. Refrain: Thy flame within me ever blazes, Thy peace about me ever raises, Thy love protects and holds me, Thy dazzling light enfolds me, I AM thy threefold radiance, I AM thy living presence Expanding, expanding, expanding now. 2. Holy Christ flame within me, Come, expand thy triune light; Flood my being with the essence Of the pink, blue, gold and white. 3. Holy lifeline to my Presence, Friend and brother ever dear, Let me keep thy holy vigil, Be thyself in action here. And in full faith I consciously accept this manifest, manifest, manifest (3x) right here and now with full power, eternally sustained, all-powerfully active, ever expanding and world enfolding until all are wholly ascended in the light and free! Beloved I AM, beloved I AM, beloved I AM!
(v. 2, #20, published by The White Lodge, copyright 1980) "There is a very definite gnosis, a spiritual compendium of knowledge, not only on angels but on life itself, which is absolutely not realized or known by mankind. There is such a tremendous amount of knowledge that what we have already externalized about God, all of the theology books that are written, is not even one millionth of all that there is to know about the Infinite One. And yet we need have no fear because of this great overpowering vastness in its relationship to the seeming minuteness of our individual self because we are like a drop of water from the ocean. The ocean is the Infinite, and we are only the drop. But we have all the qualities resident within this drop that are in the whole ocean. They are there but untapped or tapped in part. Now the angels and the reality of the angels is most important because in a room like this, angels can come by the millions. In most cases for practical purposes we will say they form an amphitheater around a room like this which is similar to a huge football field, and you people would be stting in the field. The angels will form a tier in the atmosphere and then another tier above that. And this goes way up into the upper atmosphere so that they can go up for miles around a place like this and it will be like a cone. It will spread out over Los Angeles and go out at a tangent. But all around the angels, the angels will be sitting. And they will do this. They do this very thing. Myriads of these beings assemble on these tiers and during a service such as we conduct here they often will respond to the hearts of the people as the people send out their love to God. And the angels can focus a light ray; they can stretch out a hand, like this, and the light just pours down no matter how high up they are. And they all will focus down in this football field, and after awhile you get a tremendous feeling of light. And when you have songs which the angels like, and you have music--the songs, the music, the adoration of men's hearts--all these things combine and conspire to cause an uplifted feeling in the heart. And after awhile those who are sensitive become very, very joyful, and you get a wonderful feeling in a meeting such as we are going to have simply because of these angelic beings. Now I'm talking about angels that are not manifesting in a physical body like you and I have. They have a form and appearance. Most people, of course, think of angels as having wings. They don't need them. But what they do have are emanations of light that pour out from their being. These shafts of light actually are the direct emanation of the stream of electronic power that composes the angel, which is derived directly from the Godhead. Now the trouble with most of us human beings is that we try to define things; and we try to define them so much that in the defining of things, we destroy them. You understand me, I think. I mean, we try to break it down into so many component parts that after awhile instead of having a watch that works beautifully, like a Swiss watch, we have just a bunch of gears laying here. And we seem to imagine that we are a mechanical creation. We're a living soul. And the angels are electronic light from the heart of God manifesting to do his will--messengers of God from inner realms. There is one thing I would like to touch on as I am closing and that is the angels that surround the Mass. Naturally, you all realize that we are not a Catholic church, but we are a 'catholic' church in the sense that the word catholic means 'universal.' And therefore we are universal in the sense that we have an open heart toward men of goodwill upon this planet. Everyone who is a person of goodwill would like to see this world reflect spiritual beauty, would like to see strength and wisdom and power in men and no greed, no selfishness, no wrong motive but only purity and transcendence. And so when I speak of the Mass, I am not in any way speaking of the Mass in order to confirm or deny that which is practiced as the Christian Mass. But I would like to say that because the bread and the wine are employed in the Order of the Priesthood of Melchizedek, the angels who actually feed the spiritual light rays into the Mass respond to the ancient call. The Mass, then, the bread--the whole loaf--symbolizes the whole being of God. And each crumb, each broken piece that comes off from the whole loaf symbolizes 'This is my body which was broken for you.' This means that God is everything and that all of us have a little portion of the Deity within us. And it is this portion of the Deity that Almighty God would feed with his holy energy symbolized by the wine. And so the angels respond to this and it is connected with the scriptural injunction which states: 'Wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.' And this means that wherever the mystical body of Christ is, there those who have the power of spiritual perception will gather together to feed the body of God. The angels gather around this symbolized Mass simply because it bespeaks of the reality of the Soul (solar energies) of God in man, and the angels desire to feed the soul with the holy energy of God. And so there is a mighty and potent symbol here in the breaking of the bread--'This is my body, which is broken for you.' The mystical Christ is clearly revealed in this, yet most people think only in terms of the historical Jesus, whom we affirm existed. Of course he existed, just as you and I do. But the true and real and important one is the Universal Christ, the only begotten of the Father full of grace and truth, who is the reality of every person--not just one, not just Jesus, but everyone. And this was the message that he tried to convey. Therefore this beloved Jesus, who is the angel of the Presence in a sense of the word, has this great reality which he can bring to us today. But the reality of the angels ought to be just a bit closer to all of you now--not so much as you try to define, saying, With what body do the dead come? How do angels appear? What is the substance of their being? Do they exist? and asking all these questions. Instead of that, just accept the angels as a natural emanation of love from the heart of God. Be content. You don't have to analyze the angels. When the time comes that you should do that, God will give you the wisdom, the complete wisdom that you need. But until then, accept their reality if you can. If you can't, don't worry about it. I shan't condemn you. Nor, I think, will any of the great masters condemn you. Because we are all in the schoolrooms of earth to learn. That's why we are here. And if we cannot accept truth, it is our misfortune. It is our own misfortune, but we ought not to accept truth just simply because someone says it. But take what you can out of it, for we give it in the Spirit of Christ love to you all."
