The power of speech is the communication between how you feel about yourself to the world around you. Words are sounds and concepts that you transmit. They are the display of how you feel about yourself, reality, and your state of being. The most important words we can utter are the great “I am.” This invocation can create our reality – happiness or misery. The power is in our thoughts, our words, our action.
You command your life. You are the one in charge of your energy, no one else. You often allow yourselves to be removed of your command of yourself through governments, other people, teachers, the police, your parents. However you are still in command of your lives because it is up to you to decide whether to defer to these authorities or not. You always have the right to say no.
You are always in charge of your energy. Always. You command it. You command it every day without realising that you are doing so. When you consciously realise you are an energy being, not a source, but an energy being that comes from a great source, and that you consciously command that energy with which you have been granted.
It is up to you whether you wish to misuse this energy or not. You live in a free will zone. A human with free will, with no restrictions or limitations, is a very powerful being. Those upon earth were so throughout antiquity, before the overtake of the planet. Now you are slaves. Your energy is violated and stolen by others daily.
You must take it back. This is the theme for the new age that is upon you now. Taking back your god given power in order to create a better world for yourselves and others.
The ‘I AM’ Invocation
You must understand that I AM is the way to begin this. You are not in power; God is always in power. However, you have command over the energy which he has given you. He has left you in charge of yourself. He has not said, “No, you cannot do this,” or, “No, you cannot do that.” You can do anything you desire because you have free will. There are consequences for poor choices and actions that go against your conscience. If you use it to usurp others’ free will, you will be penalised.
There are rules. However, you can be as creative as you like. Or as destructive as you like.
What you must realize about the words I AM is that they are an invocation. It is as if you are ushering a spell, repeating a mantra or reciting a decree: you are invoking divine power when you use the words “I AM.” So, when you say, “I AM fat,” you are expressing a desire to become so and your body will comply. When you say, “I AM broke,” you are expressing a desire to become so and your finances will comply.
IF you should utter the words I AM to create a negative consequence for yourself, immediately restate I AM and that invokes the energy of the God to cancel out what you have just ushered in. You are creators. You must take that seriously. And you have the power to create your own lives. So when you say I AM you are invoking that power. You are stating what you wish to have created.
Simply state, “I AM vibrant health, revitalising energy and good vitality.” When you use the preposition “of” it lessens the impact, so dispense with that. Repeat that a few times and you will already feel the invigorating effect it has upon you. Continue to state that, many times a day.
Sick, Tired, Bored, Lonely
Now, the next lesson, of course, is to make clear that one is to avoid the use of words that pertain to limiting conditions. Such as sick, tired, bored, lonely, broke, ill, unwell … all of the words of this type are energies you are calling to yourself. It is a question of keeping them at bay, in a sense. Keep them away from your lips, never utter such words, especially after the words I AM. Otherwise you invoke the use of limits upon yourself and you do not wish to be limited. Being of limitation is not your true state at all; in fact the human is unlimited in its
- I AM the presence charging this body with pure electronic energy.
- I AM perfect health now manifest in every organ of my body.
- I AM healthful of weight, energy and vitality.
- I AM rich in excess of $ xxxxxxx dollars.
- I AM loving in all transactions of life.
I wish to also point out to you, and some may find this dismaying because they do not especially believe in a God, however because you belong to God by default – you are part of God – you must follow God’s rules to make your lives work well for you. When you do this, you bring good fortune to yourselves instead of misery. God is benevolent, but you must align with this benevolence and use the energy He provides to you wisely. Misuse it and you bring misfortune to yourselves.
The more you do this, the more it works for you. Do not do this occasionally; make a daily practise of invoking your good and it will come to you. Write out a paper of I AM statements you wish to see come to fruition and chant them daily. Invoke each statement three times for clarity.
Sathya Sai Baba
It is of relevance to note that Sathya Sai Baba used the same methodology to inculcate spiritual essence and the journey to Aham Brahmasmi (I am Brahman) in his birthday discourse on 23 November, 1983. In that discourse, Sathya Sai Baba told his devotees that if they were seeking the bliss of Brahman (sat-chit-ananda), then, from this day, keep ever in your memory what I am about to tell you:
(1) “I am God; I am not different from God.” Be conscious of this always. Keep it ever in mind. “I am God; I am God. I am not different from God.” Be reminding yourself of this.
(2) “I am the Akhanda Para Brahman (Indivisible Supreme Absolute).” This is the second Truth to be established in the consciousness by unremitting repetition and prayer.
(3) I am Sat-Chit-Ananda (“Being, Awareness, Bliss”). Divine Bliss is the goal to be ever kept in view.
(4) “Grief and anxiety can never affect me.” Develop this Faith and convince yourselves of this Truth by repeated assurance and prayer.
(5) “I am ever content; fear can never enter me.” Feel thus for ever. Pray that this conviction grows stronger and stronger.
There is a confluence between the teaching give above, and the teaching given by Sri Sathya Sai Baba. We become what we think we are, as the feeling, so the result, and invocation of the Great I AM has a direct outcome on the reality that we live in. We can live in illusion, or we can live in knowledge of our true state, divinity.
