Question: Why is light important to Christians?
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
Light is important to everyone, because light is a universal substance that God used to create both the spiritual and the material world. Modern science has revealed that the material universe is made from energy. Light is one form of energy, and all energy is vibration.
When you combine the findings of modern physics with the timeless spiritual teachings found on this planet, you can develop a world view which in essence states that the material universe is made of light that vibrates below a certain frequency. Beyond the material universe is a spiritual realm made from light that vibrates at higher frequencies.
This then leads to the obvious question of why most human beings cannot perceive the spiritual realm. The answer is that most people have descended, or fallen, into a lower state of consciousness in which their conscious minds are tuned to (or trapped by) the vibrations of the material universe. Yet throughout history millions of people have had spiritual and mystical visions of a realm, or world, beyond the material world. This then shows us that the human mind has the capacity to tune in to the vibrations of the spiritual world.
Almost every religion contains the concept that people have fallen into a lower estate and that they need to come back to their original estate. Christians have developed the concept that they need to be saved so that they can enter God’s kingdom, which we now see is the spiritual realm, a realm made of higher vibrations. So the question now becomes how a person who is trapped in the material realm can enter the spiritual realm? The obvious answer is that the key to this transformation is the light, the higher vibrations, of the spiritual realm.
You can find an important key in my parable about the man who entered the wedding feast without a wedding garment. The wedding garment is a synonym for a state of consciousness. This is the state of consciousness that Saint Paul spoke about when he said, “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.” It is a state of consciousness in which you have learned to attune your conscious mind to the spiritual realm. This not only means that you can perceive the spiritual realm, but it also means that your consciousness becomes the open door through which the light, the higher vibrations, of the spiritual realm can stream into this material world.
When spiritual light streams into the world, it fills your consciousness and the energy field that surrounds your physical body. When your energy field is filled with light, you have put on the wedding garment, the seamless garment that was not made with hands but with God’s light. Your mind and energy field are now filled with the higher vibrations of the spiritual world and that is what allows you to pass through the veil, the energy veil (also called evil or Maya), that separates the material world from the spiritual world.
What is the key to having your mind filled with the light of God? It is to overcome the lower state of consciousness, which Saint Paul called the carnal mind, but which I today call the dualistic mind. As explained throughout this website, this state of consciousness is dominated by duality and relativity. You think that everything must be defined based on a relative scale with to opposites, such as good and evil. When you allow that mind to be in you which was also in me, you overcome this dualistic view of the world. You literally attain the single-eyed vision of the Christ mind, and when your eye is single, your whole body, your whole energy body, will be filled with light, namely the spiritual light coming from a higher realm.
You see, when you are trapped in the lower state of consciousness, you will automatically lower the vibration of spiritual light so that it becomes material light. When you begin to rise above duality, you will no longer lower the vibration of the light you receive, and thus this light will begin to accumulate in your energy field, gradually creating the wedding garment.
One might therefore say that light is important to those Christians who want to follow in my footsteps and put on the wedding garment, the garment of the Lord that allows them to enter the wedding feast, meaning God’s kingdom. One might also say that an essential part of my mission was to demonstrate a path that leads to a higher state of consciousness. The key to attaining this higher state of consciousness is to allow the light of God to flow into your consciousness and consume all lower energies.
You have heard the saying, “With all thy getting, get understanding.” Yet understanding is only one side of the coin. True understanding leads to an application of what has been understood. So when you understand the importance of light, you must apply yourself and find appropriate techniques for reaching beyond the material world. You must allow yourself to become an open door for the light of God to stream into your consciousness. [For more about using such techniques, click here.]
So one might say that light is important to Christians because light is the key to salvation. Because people have descended into a lower state of consciousness, in which they have forgotten their spiritual origin, they need a transfer of spiritual light in order to begin the process that allows them to rise above that lower state of consciousness. When I walked the earth, I was filled with the light of God. Therefore, when I met someone or when I preached to the multitudes, I transferred a portion of the light of God to everyone who was open to receiving it. This then became the cup of cold water in Christ’s name. This then became the leaven that can raise the whole loaf of a person’s consciousness—if the person follows the teaching in my parable about the talents.
When people have descended into a lower state of consciousness, the key to beginning the path that leads them home is that they must receive a portion of light. Because they are trapped in the lower state of consciousness, they can receive this light only from a source outside themselves. This source is a spiritual teacher, such as myself. However, there have been many other spiritual teachers who were able to transfer light.
When a person has received a portion of light, the person must then multiply that light until it fills his entire consciousness. If you do not understand this principle, you will bury the light, bury your talents, in the ground, and therefore you will not fulfill your end of the bargain.
The simple fact is that God gives you a portion of light as a gift, but it is your obligation to multiply that light. If you do so, then God will multiply that which you have, because to him that has, more shall be added. Yet if you do not multiply your light, then God will take from you the original gift and thus you will miss the opportunity for growth.
Therefore, multiply your light and let it shine before men. I need millions of Christians who are willing to multiply the light that I have already given them and allow themselves to become electrodes of the light of God. If a critical mass of people, Christians and non-Christians alike, would allow themselves to be filled with the spiritual light of God, then you would see a very dramatic change in the conditions on this planet.
You would eventually see the anchoring of the kingdom of God in this material world, because the light that people anchor will raise the vibration of the entire planet. However, this can only happen through the consciousness of human beings because on this planet everything is subject to the free will of the people. That is why Save Yourself makes the point that I cannot save human beings. People must save themselves, and the key to doing so is the light of God.
