CLEANSING AND PURIFYING THE ASTRAL REALM
CLEANSING AND PURIFYING THE ASTRAL REALM
By Beloved Great Elohim Astrea (1955)
“Excerpt from “The Seven Mighty Elohim speak of the Seven Steps to Precipitation.”
Children of the One Eternal God, I have come in answer to the heart-call of the people of Earth, and particularly at the request of the conscious students of life, for the purpose of cleansing and purifying the astral and psychic realms of the effluvia that has been spewed forth into the atmosphere through the creative centers (thought and feeling) of man for many, many ages.
Due to the scales which mankind has made before his physical sight, he is not aware of the evils he has created through his individual experimentation with the creative powers of thought and feeling in his various embodiments through the long ages. Little does he know also of the thoughtforms spawned in the secret recesses of his human mind, which have escaped the confines of his consciousness and float out into the atmosphere of the planet on which he dwells. There, these thoughtforms remain until they are drawn by the power of magnetization—or the activity of like seeking like—into strata of similarly-vibrating substance. This discordantly-qualified energy forms itself into strata, one piled on top of the other, like the layers of a cake, each stratum vibrating according to the quality of which it is composed, and growing larger and larger as more of mankind dwell, either secretly or openly, upon thoughts of impurity, passion, greed, etc.
People indulging in these activities not only add to the mass effluvia of the planet, but by the power of thought tune into the stratum vibrating at the same rate as that which they are generating at the time, and draw its mass evil into their own beings and worlds.
They are held responsible by Cosmic Law for the injurious effect their action has upon the thought processes of their fellowmen who do not know how to protect themselves from these “tramp thoughts” that are continually floating in the atmosphere, or how to control the process of constructive thinking and feeling. Very few of the people of Earth today, beloved friends, know how to use the creative centers of thought and feeling for which they were created, that is, to draw from the Divine Intelligence at the heart of the universe, through the indwelling Christ Self, magnificent ideas and fashion those ideas into form.
Very few such ideas are ever magnetized by mankind in general from the Great Central Source. Far easier is it for men to absorb through the outer senses, through the written page, through the radio and television and through all the other types of outer pressure of learning and so-called education, those thoughts and ideas that have been used before. It is easier far to accept as a pattern for the thinking man, already established dogmas and credos, religions and scientific expressions than it is to shake the mind free of all the imperfection that has been, and return to the source of creation for truth.
That truth can only come through incarnate lifestreams who, repudiating the discordant effluvia of the masses and the half-truths that have not brought freedom to the individual or the planet, will stand within the flame of their own I AM Presence, call forth those divine ideas of wisdom and balance, and then have the strength and tenacity to hold those thoughts and ideas within their hearts until the Holy Spirit has breathed life and enthusiasm into them in the feelings. When those divine ideas have been matured in the silence before they are presented to the world, you have not theory, then, beloved ones, but indisputable fact, for the blessing of the race! How many inspirations, how many great inventions, how many cosmic truths, have come forth from the Universal, into the minds of the few who are willing to stand above the masses! Yet, how many of these blessings have been lost because those few could not or would not “follow through” by taking that truth or inspiration, holding it within the light of the Christ, breathing upon it the fire of constancy, and then manifesting it to the world as fact. Instead, those fortunate enough to receive these divine ideas did not hold them long enough in secret, or perhaps they SHARED THEM WHILE THEY WERE YET IN THE EMBRYONIC STAGE WITH OTHERS AND SO LOST THE IDEA THROUGH NEGATIVE RADIATION.
So it is, beloved ones, that the beautiful world orders and Golden Ages perceived within the raised consciousnesses of the few, have not materialized in these latter ages. Why? The answer is simply because the ideas, unprotected by the ego who should have guarded and sheltered them, were torn to shreds as a carcass is torn by a pack of wolves, by lesser minds, before the ephemeral vision could be clothed in the substance of the etheric world and lowered through emotional stability and balance into the world of form.
In the physical world, you either have the man who will not think, who prefers (to use your modern terminology) to be “brain-washed” by the particular sect, cult, “ism,” religious or governmental credo to which he belongs, or you have the man who wants to be a so-called “individualist,” pursuing an obstinate and dominating policy. I would counsel you to follow the example of the gracious Madonna, dear ones, and “keep those things in your hearts” until they have come to maturity in the “secret place” and be born of their own volition into the world of form.
Again and again, children of Earth, I call for the “middle way,” that is, the path between the too-credulous acceptance of half-truths and the rash experimentation with so-called “cosmic truths” unverified by practical experience. Bring these things together in the light of your own Holy Christ Self, and, after you have had the manifest expression, then can you face all men. One of your great inventors could have talked for years about his ideas of harnessing the power of electricity with very little effect upon or enthusiasm from the masses. Instead he pursued the more practical method of waiting until he had first brought them into manifest expression. Then there was no need for him to talk, because his ideas, completed in physical form, spoke for themselves.
Jesus, that great and mighty exemplar of perfection, could have publicly proclaimed His Messiahship! Instead, he lived it. Through him the dead arose, the sick were made well, the blind were made to see, and the deaf to hear. He coupled his private comradeship with God with practical manifestation in the world of form, and, when he began his public ministry, he was the magnificence of the Messiah in action.
Beloved friends, tonight we come into the atmosphere of Earth with but one purpose and one design—to clear the atmosphere, as well as your own inner bodies and auras—of the “tramp thoughts and feelings” which form the blanket of energy men breathe in and accept as part of their own thinking processes.
All over this planet, there are individuals and groups of conscious students whose forcefields, like pinpoints of light in the darkness of the astral world, are calling for the mass purification of the race, as well as the individual mental and feeling bodies of the people. Through the open doors of these Forcefields come the Angelic legions at our command (the Elohim of Purity and Myself), and go north, south, east, and west, to transmute and remove those pressures of existing thought and feeling forms of impurity of every kind.
Why, you ask, have not these thoughtforms become disintegrated in the atmosphere? Because they are being constantly entertained and nourished secretly in the minds and feelings of the men and women of the race! You see, dear ones, a thoughtform dissolves more or less quickly, unless it is consciously invited into some human mind and fed by feeling. Eventually, through the service of the angel of purification, an unfed thoughtform is dissolved and returned to primal essence, where it can be used again by the Great Source that wastes not even the most infinitesimal portion of God’s precious life essence.
However, when impure thoughts and feelings of sex, greed, selfishness, or any other discord you might name, are entertained by some members of the race, they live. The moment the last member of the race ceases to sustain the strata in which these discordant forms abide (by adding to them his own similarly-qualified energy), that moment, those mass blankets of evil will cease to be.
Now, I am the divine complement of the Elohim of Purity. Therefore, it is the most natural activity in the world for us to render, in unison, this service of the cosmic purification through the mental, emotional, etheric and physical bodies of the mankind of this Earth.
Sometimes, the so-called “intellectual” members of the race seem amazed that we serve in more than one capacity. For your illumination, allow me to tell you that the beloved Diana (who will speak to you immediately following my address), is the divine complement of Arcturus, Elohim of the Violet Fire.
There are many lifestreams on Earth who carry the same name. Many ladies are called “Agnes,” “Beatrice,” or “Cecilia.” Likewise, in heaven there are many great beings who bear the name of Nada and many who carry the name of Diana.
In our service one with another, dear ones, let us not become so amazed when some being steps out (shall we say) of the niche in which the mental concept of the people of Earth has placed him or her! Perhaps we have more fluidic motion and versatility than you give us credit for! Perhaps we work on more rays than one! Did we not tell you that one must be master of all the seven rays before one could qualify to become a Maha Chohan! Oh, lovely ones, we do not stand (thank God) within the narrow box into which we have been placed by our well-meaning unascended friends, some of whom, at least, I am happy to say, have had the discrimination and intuition to discern our reality and presence in the universal.
We are God-free beings who work at will on any ray or in any service! Common sense, beloved ones, will tell you that.
If you are a First Ray person and you are aware of a need for healing, do you sit down with folded hands and say, “Oh, you must have a Sixth Ray man to do that healing!” Then stand by and let the patient die? That is not common sense, is it? Of course, one may have a momentum of First Ray power, one may be a “specialist” upon a specific line, but one can operate (I should not have to tell you that) on many rays!
As below, so above! We are “specialists,” too, in our particular service. The service of the beloved Claire (the Elohim of Purity) and myself, is the transmutation and purification of the energies of the Earth, its atmosphere, and its people. Here, the beloved Helios and Vesta directed us to serve, and here have we abided from the beginning of the creation of the planet, holding the perfection of design that those great beings have visualized for this Earth. Beloved Helios and Vesta designed this system, them selves. They placed that design and pattern in the heart of the Silent Watcher. The seven Elohim, with their complements, then chose to look upon that design cosmically, and created the planet Earth through our own particularly specialized activity, using care always to observe the divine courtesy of deferring to the will of Helios and Vesta, who designed it in the first place.
The courtesy of the Elohim might well be imitated by the people of Earth in relation to their association one with another, and may I add, in the case of so-called “advanced” lifestreams, to the great beings who govern these activities. Now, when we chose to create this planet, we were beings who had worked on other stars and planets. Mind you, we had seen galaxies so large that your blessed Sun would seem no larger than the head of a pin in comparison. We had seen golden ages, vast continents, great temples and mighty beings, the like of which I cannot describe to you in words. Yet, not one of the seven Elohim said, “Let us add a temple from the realms of Alpha and Omega!” “Let us create a continent like the ones we have seen in the realms of Isis and Osiris!” Nor did we say, “We have just come from the Milky Way, where there is a truly magnificent planet—let us make the vegetation here yellow like it is on that!” No!
It would be ridiculous, would it not? The Elohim of Purity, within the strength of his cosmic heart, held the original pattern of the God-parents unchanged. EVERY GENTLY ROLLING HILL, EVERY PEAKED MOUNTAIN, EVERY BEAUTIFUL SEA, WAS DESIGNED TO THE SMALLEST DETAIL AS HELIOS AND VESTA WANTED IT—NOT AS I, OR ARCTURUS, OR ANY OF THE OTHER ELOHIM, WANTED IT. Courtesy, the particular
virtue of the Seventh Ray, is manifested in the Elohimic Builders, is manifested in every sun of the system, is manifested in nature, but, alas, is little manifested in man. What, in the name of heaven, beloved ones, is man’s soul or consciousness, but an accretion of human concepts? Think of it! Unascended man, who has not mastered his four lower bodies, yet faces the Godhead in defiance of the divine will!
We come now into the atmosphere of Earth with one purpose in mind—to render a service of purification to the evolving life upon it.
Through your acceptance of our presence, OUR RADIATION FLOWS INTO EVERY SANCTUARY, EVERY GROUP DIRECTOR AND STUDENT OF LIFE, INTO THE LEADERS AND MEMBERS OF EVERY RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION, INTO ALL CONSTRUCTIVE SECULAR ORGANIZATIONS, AND THROUGH THE MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL BODIES OF ALL MANKIND, AS WELL AS INTO THE ANIMAL AND NATURE KINGDOMS, with the fully- gathered cosmic power of the Elohim of Purity and myself (Astrea).
In that power, we say to all impure creation: “Let go! Let go! Let go! Be thou dissolved! Return, thou, to the purity of primal life essence! Arise! And, by the power of the Flame of Transmutation, ascend thou to the throne of Helios and Vesta,” with a plea for forgiveness from the mankind of Earth that the pure substance which They entrusted to them to complete their divine plan in beauty and perfection should have been so defiled and debased in shadow! Beloved Helios and Vesta (the God-parents of the sys tem) have given the very substance of their lives to their creation. They have conferred upon the lifestreams whom they drew forth from the realm of the Great First Cause, their own intelligence and creative power, and have said to them, “Go forth, children of our hearts, and weave out of our life essence happiness and contentment for yourselves! Make of the beautiful planet, which has been prepared so lovingly for you, a shining orb, a place of peace and joy, a true habitat for angel and God! Let its radiation flow into interstellar space, making a happy contribution to the harmony and music of the other stars and spheres!”
As the babe nurtured in the womb of the earthly mother is part of her life substance, so is the energy we are redeeming now, part of the body of beloved Helios and Vesta. Oh, the dark shroud that their beautiful, bright planet wears today is more than a reproach to the humanity evolving upon it! I should like to stand so facing those great and beneficent beings of love and (if it were possible) never let them know what has happened to their shining hopes, their happy dreams, and their bright visions—but, because the substance that has been so defiled is part of their own body, they well know what has happened to it. Oh, peoples of the Earth, how have you repaid this unspeakable love? As I stand here, in the atmosphere of Earth, I am drawing into my own cosmic body of light the currents of impure substance from every part of its surface, and when it passes through my aura it is transmuted into its own bright nature and returned, rejoicing, to the heart of beloved Helios and Vesta for repolarization.
THE CIRCLE AND SWORD OF BLUE FLAME
By Beloved Astrea
After the first Zarathustra brought back the remembrance of the use of the fire element to the outer consciousness of mankind on Earth, for a long time that fire was loved and blessed by the priests and the people and only used constructively. THEN CAME THE TIME WHEN, THROUGH MANY AGES, UNSCRUPULOUS PRIESTS AND PRIESTESSES INVOKED THE POWERS OF THE FIRE ELEMENT FOR SELFISH AND DESTRUCTIVE PURPOSES. SALAMANDERS WHO RESPONDED IN OBEDIENCE TO THOSE WHO WERE PRACTICING SUCH BLACK MAGIC RITES BECAME BOUND TO THE LIFESTREAMS OF THOSE WHO HAD INVOKED THEM AND HAVE FOLLOWED THOSE LIFESTREAMS EVER SINCE. WE ARE ASKING YOU NOW TO HELP US CUT THESE SALAMANDERS FREE FROM THESE LIFESTREAMS, MANY OF WHOM ARE YET TO BE BORN ON THE EARTH.Those with incendiary tendencies often have those tendencies stimulated by such salamanders who have taken on the “mischief” of their masters. I smile at the consciousness of those who refuse to believe that the Earth first must be cleansed and purified FROM WITHIN OUT, before the glorious radiation of the Ascended Master Realm can be manifest again for the Earth and all her evolutions. This idea is just as foolish as to think one can ignore the weeds, which fill a field and, sowing fresh grass-seed upon them, expect to have a grassy lawn of velvety softness!
My service to this universe is to help remove the causes and cores of all the “seeds” of human selfishness, discord, limitation and distress from within the four lower bodies of mankind, as well as the mass creations which blanket the Earth and its entire atmosphere. Many of you individually are going through the process at this time of having certain destructive qualities, tendencies and cores of impurity removed from your four lower bodies. It is sometimes no more pleasant to experience this than it is to have a tooth pulled from an abscessed gum, but it is just as essential to the permanent well-being of the individual.
You would be amazed at the tenacity with which individuals hold on (in the feelings) to certain habits and tendencies. They really enjoy them and are not at all either eager or desirous of letting them go, also, the humanly created entities of discord really hate the purifying activities of the Sacred Fire, fearing the loss of their identity. THIS RESISTANCE IS WHAT WE MUST MEET WITH THE HELP OF SINCERE STUDENTS WHO WILL INVOKE OUR AID, since we must have the call and authority from your octave—from those still in physical embodiment where the need is to be met. As I have told you previously, I chose to co-operate with the Beloved Elohim of Purity, CREATING, SUSTAINING AND EXPANDING BY USE, THE ACTIVITIES OF MY CIRCLE AND SWORD OF BLUE FLAME WHICH I RELEASE AT YOUR CALL IN, THROUGH AND AROUND WHATEVER DESTRUCTIVE CONDENSATIONS OF ENERGY YOU DESIGNATE IN THAT CALL. Dear hearts, I just cannot express to you in words my gratitude for your having called to me through the years and having thus given me such freedom to act in the emotional, mental, etheric and physical bodies of Earth’s people. Thus the “wedges” of impurity which have been allowed to lodge between the electrons within the atom, are being removed tonight and the purifying grace (electronic light substance) of my beloved Claire is taking the place vacated by the discord. I now present my beloved Claire, the Elohim of Purity.
