My life with angels
Spiritual teacher Chrissie Astell shows how to light up your January
Spiritual teacher Chrissie Astell explains how the angels are on hand to kickstart your new year
Ican’t help but wonder what decisions and promises you’ve made to further your spiritual journey this year. Maybe, like me, you’ve resolved (year on year) to do more physical exercise. Although, in reality, I never seem to honour this resolution – unless I count walking the dog and chasing around after my grandchildren!
Still, whatever your resolutions, I want to tell you that you don’t have to work at them alone. A little spark of Divine fire from the angelic realm will add strength to those pledges.
Many moons ago, the ascended being known as Master Saint Germain and Archangel Zadkiel brought a huge and brilliant Divine light called the Violet Flame to earth. It was given as a gift to all humanity, to be used for transmuting negative thought into positive energy.
In my workshops, I encourage people, mostly through guided visualisation, to connect with this deeply healing and transformative power.
It is believed all light is divided into seven major spheres, each of which carries its own vibrational resonance, colour, flame and quality. Hence, the seven colours of the rainbow. Each of the seven archangels is a bearer of one of the flames and permeates the energy of its qualities throughout the earth, to those with an open heart and the desire to serve at a higher spiritual level. You may have already discovered that you are particularly drawn to one of the seven colours and vibrational qualities.
Zadkiel is the bearer of the Violet Flame, which is associated with a very high spiritual vibrational frequency, bringing joy and freedom by eradicating negativity and fear.
We talk about vibration in the spiritual sense but it’s important to remember that our entire being vibrates. Every aspect of our personal ‘vibration’ can be sensed by others.
When we purify our thoughts and change our negative attitudes, we literally ‘lighten up’. Our personal vibration is raised and we become more spiritual and less material. We set ourselves free, in joy, to be who we really are. Our inner light becomes visible and we shine.
The Violet Flame is a valuable and effective source of spiritual energy, even more so when used in with affirmations such as: ‘I am the boundlessness of the Spirit of Light. I am freedom from limitation and I am awareness of the Violet Flame.’
Healing hue The Violet Flame purifies and cleanses at a deep level, helping to dissolve painful memories and liberating you from limiting behaviour.
Its bright purplish colour has many resonances in our life, when you think about it. It’s one of the first colours to pop into our minds when we are first learning to meditate. Violet is also the colour of one of our most potent and widely-used herbal medicines, lavender. And let’s not forget the amazing colour of one of the most effective, all-round, restorative, cleansing and healing crystals – amethyst.
So now you know all about the wonders of the Violet Flame and how to use its mystical power to help you stick to your new resolutions, how do you connect with it?
Well, I’d like to share one of my favourite meditations with you because I feel it’s the best way to introduce you to the Violet Flame, and inspire you to start working with its power. Visit angellight.co.uk/archangelzadkiel to download the free meditation.
