THE ART OF BECOMING A HEALING CONDUCTOR
THE ART OF BECOMING A HEALING CONDUCTOR
Beloved Kwan Yin, Goddess of Mercy
(Excerpt from “Dictations by Ascended Masters – page 155)
Beloved and blessed flowers in the garden of the lord of hope! As I breathe the perfume radiating from your earnest and sincere endeavors through the years, and as I gather the harvest of your light’s love,
I am so grateful that, among the mankind of Earth, there are individual lifestreams incarnate, wearing yet the karmic bonds of their own making, desirous of bringing the gifts of mercy, compassion, and healing to this race.
For many years, I have been known as the Spirit of the Flames of Mercy and Compassion. I would like to speak to you about that Flame of Mercy, because its presence is so important in the feeling world of those who desire to heal. No permanent healing of mind and body can come, just through effort of human will, beloved ones! Your feeling world is composed of far more than half of your life energy, and the quality flowing through your feelings is the “conductor” through which flows that qualified healing essence into the world of the one whom you wish to benefit. Blessed ones, your feeling world is the bridge over which flows the gathered healing elixir of qualified life, entering into the mind of the patient to dispel shadows, entering into his feelings to dispel depression, entering into his flesh to resurrect it and bring it new life.
Through the ages, there have been individuals who have practiced the art of manifesting healing power and who have developed a tremendous capacity for holding a mental concept which is comparatively free of imperfection. This has developed into a science by which that concept, through a trained and powerful practitioner, can be injected into the consciousness of the patient and accepted by effort of human will.
However, almost without exception, you will find that when the individual who is rendering the service is removed from the Earth in so-called “death,” the condition will either recur in the patient in that embodiment, or remain to be transmuted into light in a succeeding Earth life.
You see, through the ages, there have been recorded upon the etheric body many, many effects set up by causes of imperfection in thought and feeling. These outpicture later on the screen of life as diseases of mind and body. By effort of will, they are often pressed or forced back again into the etheric garment, but not transmuted into light at inner levels. Therefore, you have no sustained and permanent purification of the lifestream.
Those healers who render a service of a permanent nature (like unto that of your Master Jesus, whom we honor in this holy week), use their feeling worlds as the “conductor” through which the Flame of Mercy and Compassion flows. Jesus embodied that authority in his oft-repeated statement, “Thy sins be forgiven thee;” also, “Take up thy bed and walk.”
Now, these Flames of Mercy and Compassion stir within the breasts of many men and women as a vocation, although not all of them are necessarily spiritual healers. Many of these people act in the medical profession and minister in other ways to the minds as well as the bodies of the people. When we see these feelings stir in any individual, we know that we have a new candidate for our cosmic Temples of Mercy, new students who are ready to be enrolled among the Brothers and Sisters of Compassion. We raise them to the point where their feelings become master of the energies which they contact.
I would like to bring this to your attention today, because compassion is a positive quality. Sympathy is a negative quality. These two qualities are exact opposites.
Sympathy, your Master Saint Germain has told you, is agreement with imperfection. What does he mean? He means that your life force, flowing through the silver cord from your Presence, rushing forth uncontrolled and attaching itself to a person in distress, immediately takes on the quality of that distress. Thus, rather than helping such a one, you weigh him down with more of the same quality of this unhappy energy by turning your attention and your sympathy (your qualified energy) toward him. You let the virtue flow out from you without control—you magnify and magnetize the distress.
Compassion, witnessing the requirement of the moment, does not allow the feelings to leave the heart flame with an acceptance of the discordant appearance. It does not accept that there is a power greater than God. Then, in the masterful poise of that God-anchorage, the healing powers are drawn and projected to the one in need. All this time, your own Electronic Presence, through your feeling world, is in complete mastery of the condition or circumstance.
For instance, in the case of an accident, if an individual with sympathy were to look upon a person whose life-blood was ebbing away, the sympathetic individual would probably faint, while the compassionate person would give immediate assistance to the injured one by stopping the flow of blood. It is most important that you understand this. You see, the very nature of those interested in healing usually makes them extremely sensitive to distress. In their eagerness to help, they are often prone to accept as “real” the appearances in the world of form. In so doing, they not only deplete themselves through sympathy (sometimes to the point of passing out of the body), but they also magnify those distresses in their fellowman.
Our beloved Master Jesus was a most positive lifestream, beloved ones. If he had allowed his positive qualities of compassion and mercy to become negative acceptance (through sympathy) of insanity, leprosy and death itself, he would not have been the victorious Master he was, nor could he have become the perfect example for all on this Earth to follow.
If you are going to become a healing power in this universe, you must become a fountain of positively-controlled energy. Your soul is the accumulated consciousness to which I am speaking this morning. Your outer consciousness has recorded within it the doubt and fear, the experiences and impressions that you have acquired through all the centuries you have lived. Now you must take your soul and, in quiet introspection, examine it well.
Find out if you really believe in your heart and in your feelings that there is no other power than God. When you say intellectually, from the lips, “I Am the God-Power almighty—there is no other power that can act.” DO YOU MEAN IT?
You can measure yourself, my children, by the behavior of the energy which you contact. If that energy does not respond favorably, you have not relinquished your belief in every power except that of Almighty God within the secret, deep confines of your own soul. To God, who is all love and all-powerful, always triumphant, Master—all energy instantaneously responds.
The healing lifestream must be a positive individual. Within his heart, soul and spirit, he must be as sure of the Father’s presence as was the Master Jesus when he stood before the tomb of Lazarus and, without fear or ridicule or doubt as to the response of that soul, called, “LAZARUS, COME FORTH.” Jesus knew that the God within, the living Presence of that man, would draw Lazarus from the seeming appearance of death. Thus, to all who would believe, Jesus gave actual proof that there is no such thing as death. Such an appearance comes only from the acceptance of the outer consciousness. You cannot approach the healing of nations nor the healing of a planet that groans in pain and agony with a negative acceptance of defeat.
Beloved ones, we all deal with energy. Looking upon you this morning, seeing the unfolding petals of your own heart flames and the virtues going out from you to bless life with the various qualities representing your particular rays, I think how beautiful it is to find so many “conductors” of harmoniously and beautifully qualified God-energies. You all look to me like lovely flowers, some deep purple, some the vibrant blue of El Morya, some white, some green—each of you representing one of the Seven Great Rays.
Your Master Chohan, standing in the atmosphere above this room, ties into the virtue that is within you and increases the pressure of his light through you. In this way, this living flower garden of faithful students, increasing in essence, in perfume, in beauty through concentration, blankets the entire city in a magnificent healing radiation. How grateful we are to you, each precious one, who has given the time, the energy and the substance of your world to come and sit at the feet of the Master. Without you as “conductors” of our love into the world of form, we would have no bridge over which to pour the radiance of our presence and our gifts of blessings to mankind.
As we enter the Golden Age that is ahead, and as your faith, your spiritual strength and your sense of personal mastery increase, these qualities form a bridge between our octave and yours, over which we come from the Ascended Master Octave to bless you as I am doing today. Then, as you walk over that bridge from your side, as you serve mankind in our name, one day we shall consciously meet and clasp hands. Meanwhile, the bridge grows ever wider and wider. Each consciousness we reach, each mind we can convince of our reality and presence, becomes another span of that bridge, over which pass all our blessings to life—my gifts of mercy and compassion, beloved Mary’s gifts of healing to life, to free, to purify and make whole—as well as the gifts of all the other Ascended Ones who are serving to set Earth free.
We dwell in a realm within which is no imperfection. We qualified to live therein because our consciousness had been trained not to create even one thought or feeling that would be inharmonious. Every lifestream, every being in the universe, creates from within himself the atmosphere and world of activity in which he dwells. Anyone can live either in the kingdom of heaven this hour, or continue in the generation of human thought and feeling, dwelling in the astral and psychic realm (which is the “hell” of human creation).
All we can do is breathe upon your life the essence of our conviction, the love of our hearts, the happiness of our beings, hoping to stimulate the spark within you to a point where (when we withdraw) your positive consciousness will not again recede. Sometimes, after lighting a fire upon the hearth and fanning it into flame with your bellows, you have seen, after the pressure of the bellows was removed, the flames again die down into small sparks. That is somewhat similar to our activity with mankind. While the pressure of our ray, while the power of our invocation, while the pressure of our feelings, flow, people respond to our radiation, and their hearts’ light expands. We are so grateful when we see this expansion take place and if you can, even one among you, sustain your expanded light after our visitation and hold it, carrying the radiation to your fellowman, we shall feel we have accomplished much, indeed.
We are the guardians of the Sacred Fire. That means we are those Ascended Beings who keep the spark of divinity alive within the hearts of mankind. Those of us who have consecrated our lives to these specific services, when we turn our attention to an individual, we increase in such a one (if he be responsive), the qualities which are our predominant feeling.
As I have been given the honor and recognition of being chosen by the Ascended Host and yourselves to be the presiding figure of this Easter season, I am giving you the gift of my mercy to life, my compassion, my positive assurance of all that the God-power can do for you. Accept it! Open your hearts! Open your souls! Open your feelings! Accept my gift! According to your acceptance is it done unto you! Your dear minds WANT to accept, but it is in the unresponsive feelings that we find the resistance of even the most earnest chela. It is in the buried resentments, rebellions and disappointments of the etheric consciousness that we find the “block” to the building of the individual foci of the Sacred Fire in those of you through whom we would like to walk the Earth as a fountain of that merciful Violet Flame, freeing life everywhere from distortion and imperfection and restoring it again to its God-design.
Can I give more than myself? Will you endeavor to become representatives of the Goddess of Mercy to life? Will you let your energies, in tune with God, wrap your world in the SEAMLESS GARMENT of the Ascended Host? Through that radiation, you can change the quality of every bit of energy you contact, making the blind to see, the lame to walk, the dead to rise, the mentally unbalanced to have the dignity of mastery and control of their own consciousness. Your energies connected with mine are more powerful than the combined mass energy of the billions of souls who have not yet raised their consciousness above the erroneous reports of the outer senses.
We dedicate and consecrate this holy class to the dignity of womankind. As you know, I have served womankind for many ages. I have been the protector and the guiding influence behind the women of the race. In every age where my voice could be heard or my words could be read, I have pled for the removal of the degradation of women through indulgence in passion and lust. Those who have used their vital forces in a manner that was not ordained by God or commended by men need mercy and understanding.
In the astral realm which surrounds this world, if you could see the amount of energy which forms the veil of human maya which has come from lust and passion, you would realize that it is by far the largest layer, we shall say, of the veil of human creation. Into it is woven the scorn, the censure, the blame and the selfishness which has recorded on the bodies of women as the unnecessary and undignified pain accompanying human birth. It is my desire, and it is my reason for being, to restore to mankind the dignity of birth. Into this world of form, life should enter on a song—in beauty, harmony and full control of the faculties of the mind, as it did in the beginning, before mankind chose to take the life of God and use it in vain.
When the souls and bodies of men born on this Earth are washed in on a wave of pain and a cry of agony, do you know what that does to the lifestream newly-come from realms of such beauty and harmony that your outer minds cannot conceive such perfection possible?
Can you imagine the shock such a birth must have been to the beautiful God-free Buddha, who, with golden hair and seamless robe, bowed to the Lords of Karma, and offered to take birth through human flesh so that the radiation of his presence in this world of form might be of some help?
Can you think what it meant for a magnificent Christ, bidding adieu to Lord Maitreya, to enter the Earth plane even though it was through the pure body of Mary? And for the glorious Siddhartha (Lord Buddha),who rendered his great service to mankind centuries ago? Even this year, thousands of fine, intelligent, well-developed, beautiful lifestreams with talent, will have to pass through the degradation of the present system of human birth.
I dedicated my life to the restoration of the dignity of the portals of birth through lifestreams drawn into this planetary scheme. I dedicated it also to the dignity of retiring from the screen of life (at the passing in so-called “death” when the individual’s service is completed) in full command of mind and in a perfect body in which there is no disintegration or decay. Birth, life and death are the three activities that should represent the dignity of experience in this world of form and the manifest glory of God as expressed by the Parents of our system. This perfection shall now be restored!
The life substance qualified with the crimson hue of passion flows in great tides through the atmosphere of a city like New York. Here, you see young men and women coming from all points of the Earth’s surface for opportunity. They walk unknowingly into these tides of powerfully-charged energy with no conscious protection, except that which you, (this comparatively small number of people) can call forth! Oh, dear ones!
I plead with you, in the name of life and light, to use your energies to sublimate those tides of passion, to raise that energy into the Violet Fire, so that everyone who enters this City of Opportunity may be filled with light. Call that the pressure of energy, playing upon the bodies of the young people, shall be a pressure to produce perfection in art, music and every good activity. Their karma has brought them to Earth and we are endeavoring to stimulate within them a desire to become Gods and Goddesses and to manifest the perfection of the great Goddess of Liberty and the beloved Portia (Goddess of Opportunity).
I have served long, you know, as a member of the Karmic Board. I have seen many of you so often, both before and after each Earth life. I have seen you go into embodiment filled with new life and enthusiasm, grasping your scroll (upon which is written your mission to serve) in your hands, eager to take embodiment and “set the world afire” with the light and understanding which you knew at inner levels. I have clothed you round with my love, praying that you might sustain some remembrance of your vow to “make things right,” through the gates of birth and through the years of growth. I have been within the homes to which you came. I have poured through your parents and loved ones as much of myself as I could conduct through their feelings. Sometimes I have seen you come back at the close of a life, wilted, tired and discouraged. I have taken you in my arms and kissed away your disappointments, your discouragement and your pain. I have told you that there is no failure but giving up, and into your souls and spirits I have poured the words so often, “Beloved ones, just continue to try!”
Now, I speak to you while you are yet in the prime of your Earth life. I have not waited until your worn-out physical bodies have released your weary souls. I speak to you from the heart of the Karmic Board and say, “In the name of God, while you have life and faculties, while you have opportunity and the substance of this world, while you have a knowledge of this Law, in the name of God—fulfill your vow now! Make the call that death, disease, disintegration and decay be removed from the planet. Call that impurity be wiped from the Earth—cause, effect, record and memory, and leave this planet freer because you have had being.
I shall remind you of this petition when you are called home, and you again stand in my presence without that flesh garment! What will you now do with my life, because this is my life that I give you? This is my consciousness I share with you. You will all come home someday. There is no escape. There is no escape, dear ones, for even the sleepers’ realm now allows a respite of only one year. The “compound” itself is no more. The “earth-bound,” too, must also answer the call of the Lord and fulfill their reason for being.
One day, beloved ones, you will stand in my presence and I shall say, “On a Palm Sunday some time ago, in a beautiful sanctuary on Earth, I gave you my life, I gave you remembrance of your purpose for being, I asked you to become Gods and Goddesses of Mercy and Compassion, and to heal a city of impurity, and I hope you can say, “I have done as you asked!” Then the great commendation of the Lord, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant” will ring out, pouring his benediction upon your spirit, and you and I will rejoice together that you are home “to go out no more.”
In this holy Easter Week, I ask you to accept my love, my blessings and my real presence, for I am a woman as well as guardian spirit of the Flames of Mercy and Compassion, which is the forgiving activity of the Sacred Fire.
Let us not forget for a moment that, in dealing with each other, we are dealing with friends, for I am your friend, and you are mine! Together, we shall be master of the energies flowing through you, which are capable of raising and redeeming this dear Earth.
Now, I will say, “good morning,” dear ones. May God bless you!
