10-18 Lesson 3 – Page 2


ACTIVITY 1: Mask Making

Draw or paint a picture of a mask that represents how you appear to other people. When you are finished, burn it, asking God to take from you all that is not of your real self and help you learn how to be more of your real self.

You are special! You have some very special gifts that God has given only to you to share with others. Can you think about some of the gifts or virtues that God has given you?

These gifts support you in your career and mission as you mature in life. Do you know what you want to do with your life?  If you don’t know, you can look at the gifts and talents that you have, and the things that you really love to do. These can be big clues to God’s plan for you.

ACTIVITY 2: Shield Making
In the field of heraldry, families represent themselves by a shield containing images of their unique history. Make a shield with four sections on it that represents the qualities of your real self. Think about your best gifts and qualities that you would like to see on your shield.

Activity 3: Visualizing the Violet Flame

Your soul is a gift from God. The light that radiates from the seat-of-the-soul is violet. This violet light is a freeing, forgiving light– freeing you from actions you may regret, liberating you from any blocks to connecting with God or people you are close to. When you feel you have done something that wasn’t of your highest offering, you can ask God for forgiveness. You also can meditate upon and give mantras to the violet flame which is a powerful eraser of negative energy.

Paul, the apostle wrote, “Let not the sun go down upon your wrath.” That means that before you go to bed at night, you need to forgive anyone (including yourself!) who has made you upset or angry.

Before you go to sleep at night, think back over your day and visualize what happened just as though you are watching a movie. Ask God to forgive you for any misdeeds and to forgive all who have harmed you. Then see the violet light entering each scene. See the light turn into a blazing bonfire of violet flames. See this fire burn away all the negative scenes.

You can give the following mantras for forgiveness as many times as you like as you visualize the violet flame:

I AM Forgiveness Acting Here

I AM forgiveness acting here,
Casting out all doubt and fear,
Setting men forever free
With wings of cosmic victory

I AM calling in full power
For forgiveness every hour;
To all life in every place
I call forth forgiving grace.

I AM a Being of Violet Fire

I AM a being of violet fire
I AM the purity God desires.

As you clear and heal your seat-of-the-soul chakra you will be on your way to soul freedom, and a greater closeness with your own higher, real self.

ACTIVITY 4: Color Drawing
Draw, Paint or Color the seat-of-the-soul energy center violet.
