“When people are unkind and, as you say, hardboiled, My Dear Ones, I know it is not easy; but I say to you, you can have an Armor – an Armor of Flame about you, which burns it up and really never let it register within you.
You can turn away from the condition, and call the Archangel Michael or the Mighty Astrea into action to consume it. You can call the “I AM That I AM” Decree into action to handle all discord!
You can form the habit of calling instantly for the complete annihilation of everything discordant ever imposed upon energy and substance – and substance is really condensed energy. So when you say “energy”, you can say “substance” too, if you like; but all substance is energy condensed.
Beloved Ones, it is a marvelous feeling to be able to move among distressing conditions and hold the Peace within yourselves which is the Great Forgiveness in the use of the Sacred Fire, the Blue Lightning, the Violet Flame, the Cosmic Light-Substance – and flood It forth in whatever intensity is necessary to burn away the discordant quality, to redeem that energy, qualify it with God’s Perfection of the Universe, and command it to fulfill the Divine Plan.
To some degree – to a very large degree – you do this when you visualize Perfection in the place where imperfection seems to be, or when you visualize the Luminous Presence of an Ascended Master, enfolding the individual or a condition which is in distress.
While you draw within your picture the Light-Substance, yet who of you can tell Me how much Action of the Sacred Fire or Great Flame the Ascended Masters can project into the condition whose likeness you visualize!”
