If you’ve ever seen a popular depiction of an alchemist, witch or magi, there’s often a concoction being mixed up in a fire, with the flame turning into a violet color when the potion is successful.
In fact, this type of fire goes back to biblical times. As described in Exodus 3:2 KJV in the story of Moses and the burning bush: “And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.”
This fire does not burn, it’s no ordinary fire, it is a spiritual fire of self-transformation that some people refer to as the “the violet flame.”
The violet flame is a symbolic name that is given to the transformative abilities of spiritual energy. Spiritual energy can help us move through many obstacles on our path and heal a multitude of problems from physical and emotional issues, to relationship problems.
What is the Violet Flame?
Also called the “Flame of Transmutation,” the “Flame of Mercy,” the “Flame of Freedom,” and the “Flame of Forgiveness,”the violet flame is a sacred fire that transforms and purifies negative “karma” or blockages.
The violet flame is a powerful symbol and form of imagery that can be used as a catalyst for our spiritual journeys. The reason for this is that it creates the space necessary for healing any soul blockages we carry, and it makes use of two important tools: the healing properties of color and sound.
The Power of Fire
Fire has been a source of light, heat, and protection since the beginning of our time. Much like our spiritual paths, fire can be dangerous, but also an agent of change and rebirth in a new form.
I often joke around with some of our students that hanging around us for spiritual guidance is usually notoriously disruptive, kind of like being next to a harsh fire.
Fire is the only one of the four classical elements that can quickly transform something completely.
For our ancestors, fire must have seemed magical: it brought us together, encouraged us to share stories, reflect, and enter deep meditative silence. The ever-changing nature of the flames until this very day speak to us of the magical and ephemeral nature of reality.
The Healing Power of the Color Violet
Color has been known for centuries as a powerful tool to prepare our states of mind, change our moods, emotions, and feelings.
In the hermetic traditions of Egypt and Greece, colored stones, minerals, and crystals were used in chemotherapy, also known as color therapy. Chemotherapy is slowly proving itself through modern science to be an effective treatment for emotional and mental distress. In recent times, behavioral researchers have effectively implemented the power of color through spaces what have been painted in specific colors for their healing qualities. Ever wondered why hospitals are often painted in blue tones? This is because blue is associated with calmness, which is very useful in a hectic environment!
If everything is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies, then each color carries its own wavelength and specific properties.
Of all colors, violet has one of the highest vibration-al frequencies. Violet is a combination of blue and red and helps promote spiritual growth, universal love, imagination, creativity and the integration of ideas. Not only that, but the color violet stimulates our openness to divine wisdom, promotes selflessness and speeds up our natural healing process. The color violet is usually associated with transformation.
It is not surprising then that violet connects us to the Sahasrara, or crown chakra within our energy fields which is generally considered the seventh primary chakra, according to most tantric yoga traditions. Violet is also the color of the seventh ray which is a concept that has appeared in several religions and esoteric philosophies.
Violet Flame Meditation
If you’d like to harness the power of the violet flame for yourself, you can do so with a simple visualized meditation. I’ve found this to be a great inner work practice.
If you don’t already have a sacred space that you dedicate for meditation, yoga or other exercises, find a place where you won’t be disturbed, and sit comfortably with your back and head erect and your legs and arms uncrossed. Rest your hands on your upper legs, with palms facing upwards.
Keep in mind that when working with the violet flame, there are decrees (or mantras) which are repeated. A common one starts with “I AM” meaning “God is in me.”
1) Choose your intention
Think of a problem that you’ve recently discovered and would like to focus on. Your problem could be a personal blockage or an earthly concern such as fear of social instability. You may want to use a visual aid like a photo or magazine cutout in front of you.
2) Make yourself open through a mantra
To help you establish a sense of oneness with life and make yourself receptive, begin reciting a mantra. I choose “OM MANI PAD ME HUM,” you can use one of your own, or pick one from these meditation mantras.
Repeat your mantra as many times as you feel is necessary for your mind to find stillness and serenity.
3) Begin visualizing a sphere of light
Visualize at the center of your being, a sphere radiating flames of white light. As you breath deeper, notice how these flames burn brighter and brighter with each breath, turning into a blazing white sun.
Continue repeating this breath work until the sun has grown so big, it is a sphere of white flames that surrounds your whole body, above your head and below your feet, and extends at least three or more feet away from you.
4) Transform the light into a Violet Flame
Now that your physical energy and conscious awareness are centered, you will begin transforming this white light into a violet flame.
In the center of this blazing white sun, visualize a small violet spark. Watch as this small spark gently grows and spreads over the white flames, slowly transforming the white light into a dazzling sun of violet flames.
Begin repeating the following decree: “I AM the Violet Flame of presence, blazing and transforming whatever within me that needs to be healed.” Repeat this energetically and as many times as you feel necessary.
As you repeat the decree, notice if you feel more loving and spacious. Try different words, always starting with “I AM the Violet Flame…” to create your own decrees and find whichever provides you the most healing.
5) Sending your Flame to others
If the intention you set in step one is not a personal one, but a social or global one, bring the image of the external problem into your violet flame. This is where the visual aid you chose may help.
While you’re visualizing your violet flame and repeating your decree, hold your hands up in front of you with your palms facing outwards as if the problem were in front of you. Observe how the violet flame begins radiating its light through your hands toward the situation in order to transform it.

Violet flame meditation – uplift your energy field
With Violet Flame Meditation you can consciously access powerful Fifth Dimensional frequencies that dissolve lifetimes of unresolved, unhealed energies with love and light.
This is crucial to each of us as individuals and for humanity as a whole, especially at this specific time on our planet.
The distillation of all experiences we’ve ever had in any lifetime or dimension is still in our individual and group energy field, both positive and negative.
Until the dense negativity is transmuted into love and light, we, both as individuals and as a race, suffer from the resulting chaos and negativity that we’ve experienced for eons on this planet.
The fifth dimensional perspective
The power of Violet Flame Meditation comes from what can be described as the Fifth Dimension, which is unity consciousness, transcending the ego-based ideas of separation we have lived in the Third Dimension for eons.
The Fifth Dimension is the ever present Now, where we become aware of the reality of Being.
When we shift attention to THIS moment, we are free of the illusion of time and space as fixed realities. They are perceived as the fluidity they truly are.
Within this Now moment, there are cycles of change, but they have no real power over the creative potential of the present moment.
We recognize that where we place our attention in the present moment is what creates our essential experience. What we focus on we begin to resonate with. Our focus literally creates our perception of ourselves, as well as how we experience the world. This is the key to conscious creation: Whatever we focus our attention on and give our allegiance to manifests in our lives.
Space and distance are also seen as illusions. In the Fifth Dimension we are always connected to those we love, no matter where they appear to be. Furthermore, we see we are all energetically connected as one being and the Earth we live on is a co-creation of our group consciousness, including animals and non-sentient life.
Living from the Now (the Fifth Dimension) our lives unfold through our passion, by naturally choosing that which brings us the most joy at every choice point. By connecting with our passion, we become conscious of higher energies. Following the path that brings us the most joy unfolds us into the conscious awareness of the true essence of who we are.
The Violet Flame
Enter the Master Saint Germain, Hierarch of the Aquarian Age, luminary of the twenty-first century. He brings a solution to the problem of our very ancient, very complex karma. He brings a teaching and a way of life. Of greatest importance, he brings the gift of the violet flame, a spiritual energy that when used in accordance with the laws of alchemy can actually erase karma!
Saint Germain is the Master Alchemist, but his solution is only as good as the people who apply it. If we invoke the violet flame daily, religiously, as if the world depended on us, we can literally dissolve the mountain of karma that besets us!
The violet flame is an invisible spiritual energy, the seventh ray of the Holy Spirit, that appears violet to those who have developed their spiritual vision.
Saints and adepts of East and West have long used the violet flame to accelerate their spiritual development, but this once-secret knowledge was not revealed to the masses until the twentieth century.
The violet flame revitalizes and invigorates us and changes negative energy into positive energy. By transforming negative thoughts and feelings, the violet flame provides a platform for our healing.
Archangel Zadkiel on the Violet Fire – A Flame of Joy
The violet flame is a flame of joy as it sweeps through the consciousness of humanity. Flowing with the great flow of the Holy Spirit, it frees every particle of energy that it touches.
The flame caresses Mater; for the flame is the Holy Spirit that is wed to the Divine Mother, who is the white-fire core of all energy cycles. The great love of the Spirit for the Mother and of the Mother for the Spirit is the magnetism of Alpha and Omega drawing the flame of purification from on high into the canyons of the great rivers, into the crevasses of the mountains, into the nooks and crannies of the rocks. Wherever there is an opening, wherever there is an invitation, the fires of freedom roll and the angels of Zadkiel and Holy Amethyst deposit the universal solvent that the alchemists have sought throughout the ages.
When the earth is bathed in the violet flame, as after a summer rain, the elemental s splash in puddles and ponds of the violet elixir which remain. The four lower bodies of a planet and a people absorb the flow of violet fire as the parched earth and the grasses dried in the summer sun absorb water.
The violet flame and the angels of the seventh ray release a momentum that causes the electrons to spin. It is a momentum of joy! For joyousness and laughter—the kind of laughter that one has when one has gotten the victory over the self—bubble in the soul and bounce through the four lower bodies, sweeping away the debris of doubt and fear, the depressions of the years and the discriminates that lurk in the darkened corners of the mind.
Violet flame meditation can help us open to greater awareness
Violet Flame Meditation can greatly assist us in making the transition from a fear-based life to a unity-based life. No matter how intense things look in our lives and / or in our world, we can keep bringing attention back here, Now, to the truth of Being.
There are various portals to help us do this, such as using the White Light, the Violet Flame of Love (which you’ll learn more about on this page), and The Miracle of Forgiveness Healing to release old concepts and beliefs that obscure the light. Whenever we choose the light of truth in our own lives, the light and well-being of the entire planet and human race expands.
No matter how far we think we’ve turned from the light of Reality, once we turn our attention back to it and choose love and forgiveness, we are enfolded in its healing embrace. We can do this merely by focusing on upliftment – on whatever brings us a feeling of relief, love, and expansion. These feelings tell us we are on the right path.
How to Use the Violet Flame in 9 Steps
Nine Steps for Putting the Violet Flame into Action in Your Life
1. Set aside a time each day to give violet flame.
You can give violet-flame decrees anywhere, anytime—in your car, while doing chores or before going to bed. In fact, simply repeating a violet-flame mantra anytime you feel tense, tired or irritated can make the difference.
But you will get the greatest benefit from the violet flame if you set aside at least fifteen minutes a day to decree without interruption.
It’s best to decree in a place dedicated to spiritual work, such as a chapel or a well-lit, clean and aired room. Poor lighting, dust, untidiness and stale air impede the flow of spiritual energy.
On your altar you can put candles, crystals, flowers and photographs of saints, Ascended Masters and your loved ones.
2. Begin your violet-flame session with a prayer.
Before you begin your decrees, give a prayer, or invocation, asking the Ascended Masters, angels and elementals to come and help you.
The elemental s are the nature spirits of fire, air, water and earth who are responsible for taking care of our planet. Elemental s who represent the fire element are called salamanders; those who represent the air element, sylphs; those who represent the water element, undies; those who represent the earth element, gnomes.
They are only too happy to help us clean up both our auras and the planet with the violet flame.
3. Invoke protection before you start using the violet flame.
The Masters teach that when you pray and draw more light into your aura, darkness is drawn to it, as if by a magnet. So you need to seal your aura with the white and blue protective energy. One of the best ways to do this is to invoke the tube of light and a prayer of protection to Archangel Michael.
Give your tube of light decree each morning and repeat it as necessary throughout the day. As you give it, visualize the dazzling white light from your I AM Presence, the Presence of God above you, forming an impenetrable wall of light around you.
Your prayer to Archangel Michael can be as simple as “Archangel Michael, Help me! help me! help me!” As the Archangel of the first ray, Archangel Michael embodies the qualities of faith, protection, perfection and the will of God. Archangel Michael has personally saved my life a dozen times that I know of and probably thousands of times that I am not aware of.
So give your decrees with joy and gusto and know that when you call to Archangel Michael and his legions of angels, they will immediately be at your side.
4. Begin your violet-flame decree with a preamble.
The preamble to a decree is like an invitation. In it we lovingly ask the violet-flame beings—ascended masters and angels—for help and guidance.
We generally begin our decrees by saying, “In the name of the beloved mighty victorious Presence of God, I AM in me, and my very own beloved Holy Christ Self…” and include our favorite masters and saints. Our connection to them is through our I AM Presence and Holy Christ Self.
The I AM Presence is our permanent, perfect God Presence. The Holy Christ Self is our Higher Self and inner teacher who initiates and guides our soul on her path to union with God.
Here is a preamble that you can use and add to:
In the name of the beloved mighty victorious Presence of God, I AM in me, and my very own beloved Holy Christ Self, I call to beloved Saint Germain and the angels of the seventh ray. I ask you to I ask that my call be multiplied and used to assist all souls on this planet who are in need. I thank you and I accept it done this hour in full power, according to the will of God.
5. Give the decree slowly at first, then speed up as you give more repetitions of the decree.
The first time you give a decree, you will want to repeat it slowly and deliberately. Endow each word with intense love for God. There is great power in giving a decree slowly. But there is a different power that comes as you gradually increase the speed and raise the pitch of the decree.
Mark Prophet used to compare this acceleration to a train. It starts out “chug…chug” and pretty soon it’s going “chug-a-chug-a” and then “chug-chug-chug-chug!” The faster it goes, the greater the action.
As you increase the speed of your decrees, you will find that they are more effective in raising your vibration. The increase in speed should not be artificial. It should feel natural to you; the decree should almost speed itself up.
If you try any of the Save the World with Violet Flame! CDs, you will hear the correct way to increase your speed.
6. Use visualizations to assist your spiritual work.
Most people don’t see the violet flame in action with their physical eyes. But when you close your eyes and concentrate on the energy center between your eyebrows, you can sometimes “see” the violet flame at work with your inner eye.
To people who have developed their spiritual sight, the violet flame looks like fire, in colors ranging from dark indigo and brilliant amethyst to violet pink. You may see these flames burning through karmic debris.
Sometimes it helps to imagine this debris as chunks of wood or chunks of tarry substance breaking off from your electronic belt and crackling in the flame. They tumble and bounce and then disappear in a puff of white smoke.
Once you have memorized some of the violet-flame decrees, you can close your eyes and try this visualization.
A Violet-Flame Pillar
See yourself surrounded by a violet-flame pillar about six feet in diameter and about nine feet high. It can extend from beneath your feet to well over the top of your head.
See the violet flame come to life as if you were looking at a movie. The flames rise and pulsate around you in different shades of purple, pink and violet.
Around this violet-flame pillar, you can see your tube of light, an even bigger pillar of white light that protects and seals the violet flame.
Keep this visualization in mind while you are decreeing and throughout the day. Every time you think of it, you are reinforcing this image.
7. Use violet flame every day.
One of the best times to give your decrees is in the early morning. You’ll find that if you decree first thing in the morning, your day will go much smoother. You can make a specific request for the transmutation of whatever mental, emotional or physical problems you are working on in your life. You can work on relationships with your friends and loved ones.
8. Use the violet flame to heal the records of past lives.
After you have been giving the violet flame for some time, you may find yourself recalling past lives. Recalling a past life is not something to be taken lightly. When you become aware of it, the karma (positive and negative) of that life comes to the surface.
The negative karma is like Pandora’s box. Once you open it, you will want to roll up your sleeves, spend your time serving life and make calls to the violet-flame angels each day to transmute the karmic debris. It can take as little as six months of concentrated violet-flame decrees to balance the karma of one past life. This is indeed a great gift that is given to us by Saint Germain.
As you give the violet flame, pictures of past lives may come before your mind. You may see yourself as you were in ages long past. Or you may just have the impression that you were in a particular time or place.
If the records are painful—and they usually are because your soul is crying out for resolution—you may feel sadness or regret. But you will also feel liberated because you know that as you give your violet-flame decrees, you are transmuting the records of your past karma.
When you become aware of these memories, do not attempt to suppress them. Instead, focus your attention on the light in your heart. Imagine the memory being saturated with the violet flame until the form disappears. Then let go of the memory and let a bright white sun replace it in your mind’s eye.
It’s important not to feel burdened by the negative record of a past life. We have all made mistakes in the past or we wouldn’t be here today. Forgive yourself and move on. Be grateful that you are here and that you have the opportunity to erase those records with the violet flame.
Once you start, keep on going. One step begins the trek of a thousand miles. Each time you transmute the records of a past life with the violet flame, you gain a new sense of your soul’s liberation. And by and by you will realize that you are taking command of your soul’s destiny.
9. Expand the scope of your invocations to include cleaning up karmic debris in your house, your neighborhood and the planet.
As you practice directing the violet flame to help others, you can begin to think of your aura as a violet-flame fountain where all whom you meet can come and drink. Remind yourself to always have that violet flame available for someone in need.
Not only does the violet flame dissolve your own karma, but it can also dissolve group or planetary karma that comes from such things as wars or accumulated injustices.
People have different experiences when they use violet-flame decrees. Some repeat them diligently for months before they have any confirmation that the decrees are working. Others get spectacular results the first time they open their mouths.
You can work out your violet-flame routine in communion with your Higher Self. You can add the violet flame to your daily prayers or meditations, whatever they are.
I hope you will know the joy of becoming one of the thousands of people all over the world who have transformed their lives with this miracle solvent—the highest gift of God to the universe.
Experience Violet Flame Meditation
Getting into Violet Flame Meditation
The violet flame is an invisible spiritual energy with the power to totally transform your life. Before we get into the violet flame meditation I want to say that if haven’t heard much about the violet flame before, read the violet flame page first.
Visualization is key to the violet flame meditation. However, it’s only through speaking that the atoms start to vibrate, move and change, under the direction of what you see in your mind’s eye.
Basically, you have to SAY it and SEE it.
Fifteen minutes a day of violet flame decrees and mantras is ideal, but any amount will give some benefit. Once you’ve memorized one or two mantras, you’ll be able to use them anywhere – while driving, walking, at work, or doing the dishes! And knowing the mantras enhances the violet flame mediation because then it’s easier to concentrate on the visualization.
- Sit with your back straight, legs and arms uncrossed. This allows the energy to follow along your spine and through the chakras – the spiritual energy centers in your body.
- Center your attention in the area of your heart and do your best to make contact with the presence of God within you. Visualize your heart glowing and emitting light rays like a sun.
- Recite the opening invocation.
- Repeat aloud your choice of mantras or decrees for at least 15 minutes (if possible) while keeping your attention on your heart.
- While reciting, visualize the violet flame surrounding you, and those whom you love, your home, city, country, the planet – according to your needs. If you’d like a deep and intense internal cleansing or healing, visualize the flame penetrating your whole body. Let it flow into your arteries and your veins, restoring them to perfect health. A very cleansing violet flame meditation
