Can you let yourself float on a cloud in the sky? Can you allow yourself to travel within your mind’s eye to the highest plateau you can imagine? Can you commune with the elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water? Can you let go of the need to control your own mind and being?
When you can do things such as these you can begin the souls journey of exploration and discovery.
In order to travel, to and through the consciousness within soul, you must be able to overcome your fear of being out of control. As Archangel Raphael once said to me as I was learning to travel within, “there is nothing to fear but fear itself”.
Yes we feel fear about nearly everything in our life but we fail to realize how much control it actually holds over us. If I am afraid to let go and trust my own instincts and intuition then how will I ever move to explore the vast arenas that teach and share with me their mysteries of unknown realms and worlds? Yet life has taught us to be cautious and caution is warranted indeed. So the question becomes, how can I let myself go and explore the unknown with caution?
Just as we need to learn to drive a car before getting a license, we are learning to visualize and anchor light before going off into the nether regions of our soul awareness. Anchoring light and proper prayer are about the most important things an individual can learn to do if they wish to travel the Astral, Causal, Etheric and Celestial planes of their own makeup.
Anchoring light is such a simple tool yet one that is often taken for granted or entirely overlooked. If I were wanting to go for a ride in a space ship, I would first want to examine the ship, meet the captain, glean some information about where the ship is from and also discover if I like the direction the ship is heading, before I take off into unknown places. This is why we align with and anchor pure and loving energies before traveling to places within consciousness.
We anchor light and love all around us daily to activate the energies of our own light bodies and consciousness so that they light up like a road map for us as we travel out of body. As we move within the different dimensions of consciousness it is not the same as astral travel. These are two distinctly different forms of travel. One is done while in a state of meditation or trance while the other can be done through and with the conscious mind. No matter how we choose to travel there are always dangers involved. The dangers when we travel astrally or through meditation are no more dangerous than the traveling in a car, by bus, plane, and bicycle or walking. Yet they are different in that they can effect the psyche and the psychological well being of the individual. This is why we take precautions and also use the tools of the highest caliber known to us to assist in our own well being. Just as there are neighborhoods in our towns and cities that we avoid because they could be dangerous, so are there neighborhoods in the many dimensional frequencies we travel that if at all possible, should also be avoided. Rather than me explaining where these neighborhoods are and what dangers they contain, why not simply tell you how to avoid them, much like I would a street filled with potholes in the city.
When we take the time to anchor light daily, what we are doing is actually tapping into the energy of unconditional love and surrounding ourselves and abode with it. We can actually use the light energy to surround our car and loved ones as well as anything else of value to us. (Such as Planet Earth) Anchoring Light and love on a daily basis is easy and its merits are far greater than the small amount of time and energy used to do it.
Since I have been working with the Archangels, Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel, as well as the Ascended Master, St. Germaine and The violet Flame, The Council of Nine and Red Cloud for a number of years now. I have channeled through many exercises of prayers and invocations for anchoring the Light that work quite well. What I share here with you today is the simplest and best manner there is to not only protect yourself within the light and love of the All but also to create a space that is inviting to your spirit guides and angels, all of whom visit you through your soul.
Since I have been studying and working with spirit, I am a large fan of the “I Am” presence. That is why you will find it all though these exercises. There is a series of books called the “I am Discourses” that I was introduced to some twenty years ago, and those along with “Thrice Greatest Hermes” helped me to discover the clearest most concise understanding of the “I am” as being the Source of all Life and light that can be put into words.
Here I will share several of my writings for the beautiful experience of anchoring love and light as well as inviting spirit into your space.
INVOCATION TO THE HOLY LIGHT WITHIN
I CALL FORTH THE POWER OF LIGHT THAT I AM
I CALL TO THE ANGELS AND SPIRIT TEACHERS OF LIGHT
I CALL TO MY SPIRIT ESSENCE
AND THE I AM THAT I AM.
I CALL TO ALL THOSE OF LIGHT THAT ASSIST, GUIDE GUARD AND PROTECT ME IN MY JOURNEY OF LIFE AND ASK THAT THEY ALIGN THEIR ENERGIES WITHIN ME.
I ASK THAT THE LIGHT SURROUND ME WITH ITS LOVE, STRENGTH AND EMPOWERMENT AND ASSIST ME DAILY.
I AM THAT I AM, I AM THAT I AM, I AM THAT I AM.
I AM, I AM, I AM, A CHILD OF LOVE AND LIGHT
I AM I AM, I AM, SPECIAL IN MY OWN RIGHT.
I AM, I AM, I AM THE POWER OF LOVE AND LIGHT.
HOLY TEACHERS OF LOVE AND LIGHT BRINGS YOUR ENERGY, BRING YOUR LIGHT, FILL MY HEART AND MIND WITH YOUR WISDOM AND LIGHT.
BELOVED I AM, BELOVED I AM, BELOVED I AM.
Prayer to Heavenly Father and Divine Mother
Heavenly Father, Divine Mother, e call you forth and ask that you anchor your light in and around me, so that what is needed for my highest and best good come forth.
Holy sacred teachers and angels of love and light hear my prayers bring your powers of Divine Love and help me to become aware in soul and spirit.
I am the power of light and love. I am the sacred Holy Spirit of light and life. I am pure of mind and heart. I am enlightened.
Great Divine ones of light, spirit dear hear my pleas and assist me here. Open your arms and attention hold dear; help me to overcome all my fears.
I Am, I am, I Am, the power of love and light. I am, I am, I am special in my own right. I Am, I Am, I Am, kept in God’s own sight.
I choose now to open my own higher mind, to take off my blinders and look to what’s divine. Within me there lies all that’s needed to be the authentic and true spirit essence of strength and light that I am.
You can use this prayer and invocation to begin any meditation or visualization. As you use them to create a circle of beautiful energy around yourself and home, you will also fee a sense of peace and being centered in the quiet around you. This creates a sacred space of energy that also allows recharging and regenerating your own physical, emotional and mental batteries. Inner peace, Self-Realization and Self-Actualization are what we are all seeking on our quest within soul. Making and taking the time to explore the many dimensional levels of consciousness that you contain is truly the best gift you will ever give yourself.
Happy soul travels.
