When we hold onto pain, resentment, blame, judgement & shame (and sometimes we do all this even unconsciously), we hold back our own spiritual & psychic development through being unable to forgive, release & let go.
The blocks stop us from being able to go up in vibration, which can even delay spiritual leaps & iniations that we could otherwise receive right now!
More than forgiving others, what is often hidden and still something we have difficulty with, is self-forgiveness. Many of us self-blame, and self-judge in ways that are hugely detrimental to our well being (& spiritual growth!)
Learning how to live in an imperfect world!!
As human beings, we are imperfect beings and unable to live in a state of being where we behave ‘perfectly’ all of the time – to ourselves and to others!
So as we (& everyone else!) is going to constantly err & make mistakes (!) – we can make huge leaps in our consciousness by taking on a practice of moving into a constant state of forgiveness.
This might look like us consciously focusing ourselves on staying open to forgiving ourselves and others – something like, ‘oh, yes, I’ve made a mistake & been very negative/ judgemental, forgive, forgive, or yes, that person seems to have been very thoughtless to me, forgive, forgive)
Having the intent to forgive
So how can we help ourselves with this? After all most of us wouldn’t consciously choose to hold onto blocks that are holding us back & preventing optimum spiritual growth!
Well, first and foremost, we need to have the intent to forgive. We don’t have to know how. And we can ask for help with this. The practice that I’m going to give you a little further on does exactly this.
A good way to start practising forgiveness is by practising forgiving things (& people) that we know we need to forgive.
Then when we notice that we are self-blaming/ judging, we can move into self-forgiveness.
After some practice (and this really is a practice, each time you do it, you will get slightly better than the time before – so if the first time you try it, you completely fail to forgive anyone, don’t worry! As long as you have the intent to forgive and use a practice like the one following, each time you do it, the grace of the Divine, will shift you slightly forward & each time you’ll get better and better, until eventually, you’re a pro!) you can really get into the intent of moving into a constant state of forgiveness. And eventually this is exactly what will happen! Because this is how our subconscious works! The first few times we do something, it has to be a conscious effort. When we’ve done it a few more times, we don’t have to think about it so much, and it gets a little easier. The hundredth time we do it, we don’t even have to think about it, it’s so smooth and effortless for us. The thousandth time we do it, it has become part of our behaviour, and something we do automatically. As you practice forgiveness this is exactly how it will be for you & eventually (and long before the thousandth time!) you will forgive someone’s slight towards you automatically, and will have moved into a constant state of forgiveness!
Help is there for us
Luckily for us, we have some amazing spiritual energies at our fingertips, just waiting for us to call.
This practice of the threefold flame given here, calls on the combined power of the Master Jesus, the Magdalene, and their daughter Sarah, they can help you exponentially, beyond your wildest expectations!
You don’t have to know how to forgive, but you can know that if you use this practice of calling on this holy trinity, they will overlight your process and help you move through the steps you need to – in order to bring about all the forgiveness & release that you need. Just be ready to feel into and sense what it is they have to give you, and in the days after you do the practice, look for messages by listening closely to what people say to you, or what you see on television and around you in your everyday life – the Divine communicates with us via signs from everything we come into contact with in our everyday life.
How to do the practice
You can read through the practice and follow it step by step.I would suggest you call in the energies using the mantras given. Using your own voice adds power and gives you a personal connexion to them.
I’ve also recorded an MP3 ‘coming into forgiveness’, http://www.sarayei.com/downloads, if you want to have something to follow which takes you through the steps of the practice, and you can also hear how the mantras are chanted.
I’ve been using this practice for 5 years now, and I can tell you that it’s helped me move through some very difficult times, when I’ve felt I was beyond help!
I hope that you too can experience the blessed peace and love that comes with this beautiful practice,
Forgiveness exercise -The Practice of the Threefold Flame
Close your eyes and allow your mind and heart to become calm.
Feel yourself breathing in calm, and breathing out any tension, do this until you feel ‘centred’.
Ask yourself X3, ‘is there anything or anyone inside of me that needs forgiveness’
Leave a silent pause for something to arise. Accept whatever comes up first.
Holding this issue in your consciousness throughout, do the following.*
First we’ll strengthen the solar plexus chakra using the Christ mantra.
This chakra helps us to be confident, strong & powerful within our individual personality through which our soul is expressing itself in the world. It has the will & strength to motivate us to do & say what we need to say, & holds our yang, masculine solar energy.
Allow any anger, bitterness or resentment to flow now, it’s there, accept it, allow it to be.
Chant Christ mantra X3, (or more)
OM JESU CHRISTAYA PARAMATMANE PURASHA AVATARAYA NAMAHA
(Om Yea-soo Kris-teye-yah Pah-rahm-aht-mah-neh Poo-roo-shah Ah-vah-tahr-eye-yah
(from ‘Healing Mantras’, Thomas Ashley-Farrand)
Now we focus on our heart centres & the infinite love within. Go to the centre, deep inside in your heart chakra, find the love, the fluidity, the ebb & flow of the tides of love, ceaseless, eternal, infinite. Here is all the love we need to forgive ALL that needs to be forgiven.
Feel the love in your heart centre, more and more powerful with each breath.
Chant Magdalene mantra X3, (or more)
OM MATA, OM MATA MAGDALENA, MATA JAGADAMBA
(Om Mah-tah, Om Mah-Tah Magdalena, Mah-tah Jah-gah-dahm-bah)
Now we call on the energies of Lady Sarah, who blend’s the Magdalene & Christ energies, but is also something more. Her energy is the energy of dynamic action, MANIFESTING these divine energies onto the physical, ‘bringing heaven to earth’.
OM SRI SARAYEI NARAYANI NAMOSTUTE
(Om Shree Sah-ra-yei Na-rah-yan-nee Na-moh-stoo-the)
Now calling on Sarah’s energy, MAKE the dynamic act of forgiveness, for example you could say,
‘I forgive you, I forgive myself’ X9 (or more) to the issue and to yourself.
‘I unbind you from the fault, and so may I also be unbound by it’. Blessed be.
*if you find it helpful, you could imagine a triangle forming as you perform the mantras, with the Christ energy behind you and to your left, the Magdalene energy behind you and to your right, and Lady Sarah’s energy at the apex of the triangle, with you standing on the apex or slightly behind it, as you feel comfortable.
When practicing this, I see the Christ energy as yellow, the Magdalene energy as pink, and Lady Sarah’s energy as a bright green.
The chant to the Magdalene, is calling on her in her aspect of being Sarah’s mother, and also as a mother to the world, as she is working to birth the Magdalene flame into humanity.
Lady Sarah’s energy is at the same time, her own individual energy, (which I see as green), and also the energy she has received from her parents, the Christ and the Magdalene. These three energies exist simultaneously as individual layers of light, (yellow, green and pink) but are also one. This is Sarah’s energy as the threefold flame.
Sarah is the catalyst that alchemizes the energies and brings them into manifestation onto the earth plane. She ‘makes it so’!
The forgiveness exercise
This exercise creates a fusion of the male and female qualities which are needed to bring about dynamic acts of forgiveness in difficult situations.
If you experience any difficulties in feeling the quality of love in your heart centre when calling on the Magdalene, you could try visualizing the pink Magdalene flame burning in your heart centre, and breathe deeply into the flame, so that the light burns brighter, as if you are fanning the flame. Call on the Magdalene to help you really experience the energy of love in your heart. Then repeat the chant as feels right. Even feeling the energy of love just slightly can be enough to complete the act of forgiveness, and of course you can keep repeating the exercise until you feel happy that the matter is resolved within yourself.
When you are carrying out the exercise, just before you call on Lady Sarah, it can be powerful to feel the energy of the Christ, and the energy of the Magdalene, pouring into you from behind so that you feel yourself become the conduit of power.
When invoking Lady Sarah’s energy, you can imagine an intensely focused laser beam of light blazing fearlessly forward from the apex of the triangle. This beam is forging straight forward and lighting the path ahead, taking you into your highest potential. In this aspect Lady Sarah’s energy is symbolizing the new age of Aquarius, supported from behind by all those who have gone before, and taking us (humanity) to our new levels of vibration, to our ascension and evolution.
