Today’s Meditation | St. Germain’s Violet Flame

The following is an example of the 4-step Alchemical Violet Flame Meditation, which will transmute your karma and negative thoughts, actions and emotions. Ideally, you meditate on the Violet Flame for 9 minutes at 9:00 a.m., 3:00 p.m., and 9:00 p.m. daily.

There are many ways to use the Violet Flame. This is the basic method Saint Germain wishes everyone to use as a foundation for Violet Flame work. It is very simple with only four steps. Once you understand the principles behind this practice, you can adapt it and use it in unlimited ways.

Step 1.

Bring the Violet Flame into your body. Ask your Higher Self, a Master Guide or Angel to assist you to do so, or just ask the Flame to “be made manifest,” whichever is most comfortable. It is helpful to visualize (doesn’t matter if you can or cannot actually see it) or pretend that there is a ball of violet fire above your head. Then ask that ball of fire to come into your body and fill every speck of your entire body.

Step 2.

Spin the flame in and around your body. Keep the Flame inside your body while asking it to also come out through your heart chakra and spin around or encircle the outside of your body so that it’s encompassing your emotional, mental and spiritual bodies.

Step 3.

Ask the Violet Flame to transmute everything you wish to be changed or eliminated from your life. Some people like to mention everything like a shopping list – all karma, negative feelings such as anger, poverty, frustration, sadness, physical illnesses, etc., which is fine. But you can also do a catch-all phrase, such as “transmute anything and everything standing in the way of my ascension, or of becoming a Christed Being.” Again, it’s the intent and the feeling behind it. One important phrase to add is, “on all dimensions, on all levels, through all time and space, past, present and future” to your request. That covers all your lifetimes and your multidimensional selves.

Step 4.

Change negativity into Divine Light and fill your body. “Holes” are created in your aura where the dense energy and blocks were consumed by using the Violet Flame. It is very important to fill those spaces up with healing energy. Some people like to do the list again. “Please transmute everything into love, prosperity, abundance, peace and happiness.” Or you can ask for specific colors, which are pure energy. Pink is unconditional love. Blue is peace and tranquility. Green is health and abundance. Deep dark blue is spiritual knowledge and intuition. Violet is spiritual advancement and knowledge. Either way works fine. The Violet Flame Invocation, below, turns everything into the golden light of the Christ Consciousness, which encompasses all the qualities of the other colors.

Preparation: Center yourself. Take a few deep breaths to prepare, and then, say these words:

Mighty I AM Presence, Beloved God, My Heavenly Source,
Please make manifest in me now the Sacred Violet Flame of Transmutation.
Bring the Violet Flame into every cell, molecule and atom of my body filling me totally and completely.
Blessed Violet Flame, blaze into my Heart and expand out and around all of my bodies, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, surrounding my entire Being with your Divine Grace, Love, Mercy and Forgiveness.
Transmute all karma, negative thoughts, actions, deeds and energy that I have ever created at any time, in all dimensions, on all levels, in all bodies, through all time and space, past, present and future, for all Eternity.
Transmute anything and everything that stands in my way of embodying the Ascended Christ Being That I AM.
Beloved Violet Flame turn all that has been transmuted Into the Golden Light of God, the Christ Consciousness, The Light of God that never fails.
Send this Golden Light to me now, filling and surrounding my entire body with its Divine Radiance, raising my vibration and frequency to the highest level possible for me at this time.
And So It Is.

St. Germain’s Violet Flame Invocation

Please individualize the Invocation using words from your heart and say them with great feeling and intention. Saying the words out loud is best because the power and vibration of the spoken word has energy, which helps create the maximum results of the Violet Flame. If you are among people, you can just say it quietly in your mind.

Health | Resentment Causes Knots In Your Energy Field

We all hold grudges big and small.

When you initially start out the practice of Forgiveness daily, at first you might think you will run out of people to forgive or to ask forgiveness from.

But it turns out that it is an ongoing process.

So here is the practice: close your eyes and visualize the person who wronged you or who you wronged. Ask for forgiveness and then forgive them.

Every time you do this you will experience heat and vibration right under your heart, near your stomach and it will feel like a Knot has been untied every time you forgive. These knots cause blockages of energy flow and of breath.

The more knots you untie the more freedom you will experience.

It takes psychic energy to hold a grudge.

Forgive everyone for everything.

These knots are not needed. Let the energy flow easily through you!

Life Lessons …

Take back what is yours. You have a choice to decide what you give your mental and emotional energy to. You decide to tune in and allow it to live within you when you can just be an observer of the situations that test your patience. You might be working on yourself and evolving past the dramas that once pulled you in. There’s certain situations that return to test your evolution, but it’s not about anyone else. It’s about how much you have

worked on yourself and how much it no longer affects you.

When we’re learning to master our inner self we can see clearly what triggers us and those situations are the ones that require us to grow. So be thankful when things come up because you now know how to work through it instead of overreacting and overthinking it. Mastering yourself is an everyday experience that helps you get better at being the best you. You’ll realize you no longer have the energy to play along or react so easily.

You find yourself investing your time in what adds value into your life. Your focus becomes about living a more enriched life because anything else is draining your precious life force. Ask yourself is it even worth giving my precious life force to something that happened in the past? To someone who doesn’t deserve it? To a situation you outgrew? Remember, your attention and your focus is your power. The scenarios you overthink and constantly replay aren’t evolving you. Stop the self-judgment and just forgive yourself. Decide now that you’re going to better manage your energy. You’re going to think, feel, and do what evolves you. You’re going to make peace with what has happened and what you can’t change. Starting today you’re going to take your power back by consciously deciding what you feed your energy. Don’t allow anyone to thrive off of you feeling low or down about yourself. You have the power to manage your mental and inner world which will reflect how you handle everyday life. Be very patient with yourself. You’re evolving and learning. Things will get more clear for you.

Hau’ōli aloha Pō’akōlu

Aloha a me ka maikāʻi oʻ kā kākahiāka, ī nā mea a pau ʻia ōukōu kanaka a maikāʻi.  Kākou nō ma ka hānā hebedoma hapalua ʻala.  Mālāma nēʻe īmua, hula manāwa ʻua ʻaneane ʻaneʻi. Ī kā maikāʻi oʻ kā lā. Nūi ke aloha.

Hello and good morning to all you good people.  We are half way through the work week.  Keep moving forward, play time is almost here.  Have a beautiful day.

The Power of Gratitude

If you only knew where your current situation is taking you, you would be celebrating and saying thank you. Every single thing is working in your favor. Even the things that might disturb your peace is teaching you to come back to your center. All and any changes you’re experiencing is expanding and refining your spirit to trust more, to believe, to let go, to surrender, and also to welcome. You can forget this when you’re in the moment. You can forget that you are living what you thought, felt, and spoke into existence. You might not even realize on a subtle level why things are happening the way they are till you look back and smile to realize you needed that for your evolution. You needed that for your clarity and peace. You needed that to reach new heights. That’s all every situation is. The point is to keep reminding yourself when you are caught up in the midst of things that everything is working out for you. Pay attention to the pattens of your life. Look back to learn and see how the universe brought everything together even if the pieces are still coming together right now. Pay attention to the divine guidance happening in your favor right now. Smile about it and breathe. It’s all okay. Release the need to overthink and overwhelm yourself with worries. It’s all okay. Let this bring you inner peace a clarity right now that creates a positive shift within you. It’s all okay.

Local Foodstyles | Saimin Stories

Got Saimin?

Hawaiʻi is in the beginnings of a saimin development period. From lost saimin stands of the old time favorites to the long lasting mom and pop stores that remain to visitor standards, there are hidden recipes around the island in family homes.

You want lightly tasty dashi broth done da local-style way? Thicker and curly, drymein noodles with condensed sauce on the side? Beef Curry saimin? You want it in Pearl City? In Kalīhī? In Wahīawa? Onolicious eats!

Here is my personal definitive story map of ʻŌʻahu’s saimins, marked with every saimin story I could track down on the island, with a little bit of difference in every bowl. It is too bad I can’t yet find all the stories and recipes that can make even more people crave this delicious, yet disappearing dish!

The growth of Saimin is a trail of houses with kama’āina secret recipes, stories of closed establishments, and those who survived the noodle wars of ramen and pho. As people may mention the good old days with nostalgia of living during a time period of various Saimin stands it is important we also figure out what many of those variations were and where they came from. No one should forget about the light tasting warm soup that is perfect during the day or the night with a air conditioner and many sides. There are many variations of Saimin shops that are still on the island of ʻŌʻahu as well as on other islands, so it can be difficult to figure out which might be the essential expected saimin versus a regional or specialty dish. Hopefully this list will help those who wish to know the difference of the many types.

Saimin stands eventually turned into small saimin shops that tended to be not to hard to find with a line of people and a limited counter seating arrangement. There was a noticeable passion for saimin that had slowly vanished with the globalized competition bringing deeper flavored broths, light broth competitors, and noodle variations to the soup wars in hawaii. But, there are still some saimin shops that survived and continue to grow its following of people following them with their additions of miso, curry, and kimchi flavored broths. This change is what would start getting people interested back into local Hawaii cuisine in its changes to adapt to the competition of global cuisine dishes that entered the market.

The exploration of those who hunger for Saimin have turned to the elderly, the internet, and the everyday working man for stories of what was and what still is in the noodle scene. In ʻŌʻahu it seems that the list of variations had grown in the homes and began being experimented with at restaurant establishments to make saimin shops feel a renewed energy of enthusiastic saimin eaters. The steaming delicious bowls of tasty toppings will soon be understood in the collection of articles within this growing list.

Hawaii Saimin Varieties

A bowl of saimin consists of several elements: the broth (dashi), the sauce, the noodles, and the toppings. The broth tends to have a mixture of poultry carcasses, meat bones, fish bones, shells, and/or mushrooms. Many variations started off with shellfish of clams, shrimps, or scallops as a bases for the broth or the looked down upon shellfish free soups. Diners use specific categories as simple terms that broadly describe the basis of a flavor, because many shops will specialize specifically on a particular saimin-style: alaea, konbu, shrimp, beef, and pork.

Alaea Saimin (Hawaiian salt)

Alaea (salt) is the Salty seasoning used with dry shrimp. The beginnings of saimin was built from the dried seafoods eaten as snacks in the plantation fields, but none more than dried chicken, dried shrimps, dried ginger, and sometimes dried mushrooms.

Konbu Saimin

Dried Seaweed Kelp. Using the kelp of the ocean makes for a light shade of green, and seafood is added to make another category of saimin. There are few places that specialize in this style, many shops offer it as just saimin with a secret recipe that offers a blend of seafood mixtures that tend to include dried scallop and fish bones.

Shrimp Saimin

Fermented shrimp paste (mam tom shrimp paste), dried garlic, pork bones, tomato paste, and shrimp shells. The name comes from the primary after taste of the broth that is the savory shrimp.

Beef Saimin

Beef bones from all over the animal. As many other varieties it is based on a key ingredient in which its name is derived from.

Pork Saimin

Pork bones. The ingredient of roasts and the oils that can be saved in the form of kalua, char siu, and sweetened black vinegar gives shops many variations of possibilities with pork saimin.
