When I was introduced to the Violet Flame, I had no idea what it was or how much it would help to awaken my spirit.
What is the Violet Flame?
The Violet Flame is one of the tools people use to either begin or accelerate their spiritual ascension.
Part of the reason this meditation visual ties in so deeply with spiritual awakening is its association with the crown chakra. The crown chakra, or Sahasrara in Sanskrit, resides at the top of the head. It's your connection point to the divine, and is also violet in color.
By activating the Violet Flame, you are activating your crown chakra. You clear any blocks you might have here to receiving divine guidance, wisdom, healing, and connection.
The Violet Flame clears and opens your connection to God, your Higher Self, your spirit, your divine healing abilities, and your guides and angels.
It helps you to step out of constricting your soul and to let to it open, expand and flourish. It also clears old karma that you have resolved and are done with. It clears dense, low vibrating energy and helps you to process it and step into the highest vibration available to you at this time.
The Violet Flame was introduced to human consciousness by St. Germain. It was brought into our awareness for the purpose of spiritual awakening and ascension.
Often times, when I meditate on it the feeling is so charged that it seems as if the air around me has thickened and is almost crackling with energy.
I love this spiritual tool, and the guided meditation I created to go along with it will further deepen your experience. The Violet Flame guided meditation will help you to center, connect to the center of our solar system, tune you into your I AM presence and let go of everything you're ready to release.

A few wees ago, I felt guided to listen to The Golden Thread guided meditation every day for 40 days.
I created this meditation a few years ago (it's the first one I made!), and I play it from time to time, but this was the first time I got a specific message about it: try it for 40 days in a row and see what happens.
I wasn't sure why, except for the knowing that doing something for 40 days can be a sacred and life changing experience.
Now that I'm half way through it, I'm starting to understand what this is doing for me.
Usually, when people play this meditation they have a vivid dream, either right after playing it or after a few listens. I'm 20 days in, and although I've had interesting dreams thus far, last nights' was one that really told me something special was happening. In the dream I had traveled somewhere else, somewhere I can't recall, only that it wasn't where I live.
I had two choices: go back to where I was and what I had been doing, or follow whales as they swam around the earth.
When I saw the whales I knew instantly, I would follow them, and I did. Watching them swim and traveling through the oceans was the most beautiful, open, free and happy dream I've had in a long time.
I believe part of the reason this meditation creates vivid and interesting dreams is because the imagery works on very deep levels of the psyche. There is the conscious experience you have while you play it, what you feel in your body, and then there are subconscious things happening that unfold and reveal themselves over time.
The meditation guides you to look up to see a large white cloud. Hanging from the bottom of the cloud is a beautiful golden thread. The thread comes down from the sky, weaves through your entire body, and then drops into the soil, spreading out like roots. This is a very calming and serene experience, and one that will help you to feel supported and highly energized in the present moment.
If there's one thing I've learned in my life, it's that a truly self-empowered state comes from a feeling deep within.
It comes from feeling, with my whole body and soul, that the Universe sees me as a vital part of it. When I feel into how much the Universe loves me, how it just knows it would be incomplete without me, I can feel how truly loved and supported I am.
I can feel the love in my heart, the love that connects me to all the beautiful things I dream of. I can feel God shining onto me, and I feel myself shining back. As we commune and I drop my walls I feel like I'm coming home. I can feel the power of higher dimensions of consciousness guiding me, wanting me to succeed.
They want me to feel happy and expanded and safe and powerful because I am as important to to the Universe as the whole Universe is to me.
If one cell in my body, one single cell, fell into dis-ease I would give it unconditional love and support. I would send it waves of love, nourish it with good food, drink plenty of water, and all in hopes that it returned to health and harmony. I would do this, because it is a part of me, each cell is vital in making me whole.
You are the same to the Universe. The Universe wants you to be happy, healthy and whole because without you, it's incomplete.
When I feel into that, into the knowing that vast and powerful resources are asking, begging, pleading with me to stop trying so hard and to let them help, I feel empowered. I feel it's all okay, it's all taken care of. And that is what I love the most. I feel it. I feel it as I go about my day. I don't have to think it or affirm it or keep reminding myself of it.
Whenever I feel lost, alone, sad or scared I close my eyes, take a deep breath, and I feel that the atoms of my body are composed of the same material as the stars.
Then I feel the cosmic connection I have to those stars, and then I feel the power, the literal power of all that mass, all that hydrogen burning and churning and crushing down on a core so hot it lights up entire worlds.
This state of empowerment within me feels like warmth. It feels like ease. It feels good. Really, really good. And that's all being self-empowered is. Feeling good from within.
If you need a little boost with your own sense of self-power, I've made a guided meditation to help tune you in and reconnect you to all that you are. You can play the abridged version above (via SoundCloud) for free. It's 11 minutes long and contains beautiful background music called "Heaven and Earth," by Christopher Lloyd Clarke.

This is a mantra that came to me from the Sivananda Kirtan.
Kirtan is a Sankskirt word that can be translated many different ways, but generally means narrating, praise, or reciting.
I began experimenting with this mantra in 20 minute meditation sessions. Twenty minutes for me is the ideal length of time to meditate on a mantra. It's long enough that I have no choice but to let go, because at some point I always lose track of the feeling of time and surrender to the fact that I have no idea how long I have left. It's also long enough that my mind clears and I free fall into the energy of the words.
And the words in this meditation are truly powerful. I would feel waves of energy come into me, things release, and often felt like I was falling deep inside of myself. I also felt as if the chant was truly calling in these powerful figures, particularly Kali Ma, right into the room with me.
Kali Ma is often known as the Goddess of destruction.
She is a Goddess that is swift and efficient in her answer to your prayers. If something needs breaking apart, destroying, or clearing in order to make way for the new, she is the Goddess to call on, and she will respond without hesitation. By chanting her name you will call in her powerful energy to help break up old patterns, feelings you're done with, events you're done with, and so on. She can even break apart your current reality so that you can build an entirely new one. She can also help break apart an unbalanced grip on what you perceive to be the only truth in life, allowing in more room for the magic and mystery of life that can miraculously shift everything.

Below are my all time favorite books for adventurous spiritual seekers. These are the ones that truly changed my life and stayed with me long after I'd finished them. Many I've read more than once. I tried to cover the main areas of spiritual interest and divided the books into four categories. If you've read one of these books or you have a book you think I should read, drop a line in the comments!
The Nature of Personal Reality
by Jane Roberts
If you only read one book on this list, let it be this one. This is the book that cracked open my mind and turned me into a sponge for spiritual knowledge. It's mystical, beautifully written, and will leave you feeling like you are a vital part of the masterpiece that is the Universe. I recommend this book to everyone and have read it multiple times myself.
by Hermen Hesse
As you read this book, you will feel as if you are walking side by side with Siddhartha. You will go on an incredible journey of courage, loneliness, awakening, connection, love, loss, and enlightenment. This book captures the wild roller coaster of emotions and experiences as one awakens spiritually. When you get to the end, you will have a new perspective on your own life and this mysterious journey between birth and death.
