Keeper of the Violet Flame

Posted by on Sep 25, 2017

In the sixth step of the Seven Steps Into Angel Light, we work with the energy of Archangel Zadkiel. Click to watch my short introduction.

archangel_chamuel_170Throughout the Seven Steps, we have been opening our hearts and minds to the Archangels and the particular qualities of their “flames of light”. We have been bringing these spiritual qualities together and blending them with our own energy. Now is the time, if you are willing to use them –– to begin actively and consciously joining in. By adding your unique gifts with integrity and building up your confidence through spiritual practice, you can share this light throughout the world in your daily life. Zadkiel has the role of Keeper of the Violet Flame, the energy of which we can call upon to help us fully dissolve painful memories and support us in changing negative thoughts, behaviour patterns and fears into positive life-force energy. He will enfold you in the transformational energy of the Violet Flame and transmute all your thoughts and actions into joy.

Ascending into the Violet Flame

Posted by on Jul 21, 2016

14-Presence_150We haven’t looked at a specific Archangel in depth for a while, so today, as I’ve just recorded a webinar for my course students, I thought this week I would write something about the transformational energy of Archangel Zadkiel.

At my workshops, and especially where we have more time on retreats, I love to include a guided meditation where we visualise the colours associated with the Magnificent Seven to see which Archangel’s energetic magnetism we resonate with. I tend to believe that there are no coincidences and that everything in life is linked to universal and cosmic Divine energies so much greater than our own. In our astrology, our numerology and even the letters in our chosen name, there are signs relating to our soul purpose, and clues to which of the energetic vibrations of the Chohan (Ascended Master) and Archangels guiding us on our journey. So when we meditate on the colours related to the Archangels, this also connects with our soul at a deep level.

As we know, all light is a reflection of the seven colours of the spectrum, which we see quite clearly when the sunshines through a droplet of water, or a crystal, and of course there are thousands of different shades. (Just like the rainbow we can only actually see seven colours though if we concentrate we can find softer blended shading where the colours meld into one another.) Each of the main seven carries its own vibrational resonance, colour and quality. As we know the Seven Archangels are associated with each of these colour vibrations and in angelic terms they are known as ‘flames’. Theosophists and New Agers have related these light vibrations into what is called the “Seven Rays.” Each of the Archangels is a bearer of one of the flames and permeates the energy of its qualities throughout humanity by using those of us who have an open heart and are willing to serve at a high spiritual level

During our residential week in Crete we call upon the Archangels and ask to be taken, as we sleep, to the appropriate Ashram of the particular Ray each of us resonates with. This is the centre of heightened vibrational energy associated with the qualities of the Archangel, the hosts of angels working at that level, the Elohim (highest angelic Beings of Light often called Seraphim) and the affirmation_comfortAscended Master (Chohan) of the Ray. You would be amazed at the results after a few nights of asking. This works especially well when calling on the transmutational energy of Zadkiel, or indeed Raphael for healing.

Zadkiel works with the Chohan Saint Germaine of the seventh ray and brings all the positive power of the Violet Flame.  This powerful Light source helps us with the transmutation of energy (from negative to positive) and likewise with soul transformation. His is the role of ‘Keeper of the Violet Flame’ and it is this high vibration we can call upon to dissolve painful memories and change negative thoughts and fears into positive life-force energy. If we make the choice to acknowledge that most of us have personalities tinged with some form of negativity towards some other people, such as thoughts or actions related to greed, jealousy or judgementalism, we can also make the choice to let these feelings be transmuted. This in turn helps us eleviate that karmic experience of feeling the same negative actions being made towards ourselves. (What goes around comes around!)

Believe it or not the job or career you have chosen will reflect the calling of your soul, and the Ray or flame associated with your soul vibration. Even if you feel you are in a job you dislike at the moment there will most certainly be lessons or challenges you have drawn to you and a real reason for being where you are. (Even if you can’t work out what they are right now). So for example if you are resonating with the violet colour and the attributes of the seventh ray energy of Zadkiel, whether or not you are working in your ideal profession, you will have an interest in issues of freedom, culture, refinement and diplomacy. Your current situation may be teaching you tolerance, forgiveness and serving others within some kind of discipline. Perhaps you are an ‘Agent of Change’. For that is exactly the energy of this particular powerful angelic being.

Once you feel ready to raise your vibration to the bright true spiritual being you were born to be, you will feel definitely be drawn towards the Zadkiel vibration. He will enfold you in the transformational energy of the Violet Flame and transmute all negative thoughts and actions into joy. The way we perceive things begins to change (slowly at first) and although we might still have our faults we are able to notice them and change. There is a great freedom in letting go of judgement and fear. Those of us who judge others harshly, are usually incredibly hard on ourselves and truthfully that’s not really loving! We are all a work in progress. It does take dedication, self-discipline and focus. But when we call in and work with Zadkiel we learn to let others be who they are, and our relaxed and positive attitude is reflected in how we feel towards ourselves, not just other people, leaving us happier, more loving in nature, and ‘lighter’ in the process.

How’s your resolution going?

Posted by on Jan 29, 2015

Here we are almost through January already, (and slap bang in the middle of a Mercury retrograde) so it is a great time to assess whether or not you are achieving your New Year’s resolution? I have every sympathy if you are not doing very well, or even if you’ve given up and thrown in the sponge! To be honest I think when the blessing of ‘will power’ was being given out I might have been looking the other way! Not to say that I can’t dig in my heals and stick to something I set my mind to, but lets face it we do have to be in the ‘right mood’. Diets, exercise regimes, new practices and letting go of addictions are really not that easy.

14-Presence_150Some of the hardest situations are those related to addiction of one type or another. We are not only addicted to food and become overweight or to certain foods like chocolate or coffee, alcohol, drugs (including miss-use of pain relief), or nicotine. Many of us are addicted to work ;even when our hours are finished we take our work home, or cannot leave a project until the early hours. Some people cannot resist being in constant contact with others permanently glued to their mobiles, checking for messages even when eating or out with friends. In some cases it’s not just physical, but we become psychologically addicted approval, or to being needed. We may even develop a sense of becoming indispensable. In all cases help is at hand.

The angel to help with addictions is the beneficent Archangel Zadkiel, the bearer of an energy called the ‘Violet Flame’, and by learning to tune in with 100% desire to let go of your addiction Zadkiel will help you every time. The key is wanting to give up your addiction. (Of course in some cases you may also need medical help if the addiction is drugs or medication, or is linked to serious illness.)

Light a violet coloured candle, perhaps placing an amethyst crystal close by, dedicating the time to sit quietly, closing your eyes and relaxing, focus on releasing your addiction. Calling his name three times say: “Zadkiel, Zadkiel, Zadkiel … . I ask your help in releasing myself from any negative patterns which tie me to my addiction. I release my addiction to the powerful energy of the Violet Flame and I ask that all negative thoughts of myself and my addiction be melted away and transmuted into positive energy that will enable me to succeed. Thank you.”

Now sit and imagine the beauty and warmth of the violet flame surrounding you and clearing away all negativity associated with your addictive habits, leaving you strong and positive.
