Last month I joined a group of women who are discussing the channeled works of Paul Selig. His first book is: I Am the Word which I am reading now. I have been using "I Am" affirmations for quite awhile: I Am Love, I Am Light, I Am That I Am. I Am Word is a new one for me. At first it didn't make sense, but I wanted to learn more about it, mainly because I liked the idea of being in a study group with spiritual seekers who are on a path similar to mine: women who recognize the importance of raising our individual frequencies as our contribution to the salvation of Mother Earth and humanity.
Before I even started to read the book, my first thoughts about the Word took me back to the Bible where John says: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1)." As it turns out, this scriptural passage is referred to in the book which also explains: "The Word is the vibration of God in action. Word is action. It is creation. When we say "I Am Word" we are decreeing ourselves as the Creator in action."
The Bible verse goes on to say: "He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it." Christians believe that the word is Jesus, and that Jesus is an aspect of God who helped to create the universe.
When we say "I Am the Word" we affirm that each one of God's children is a co-creator, and that we all have the potential to attain the Christ consciousness that Jesus and others have demonstrated. Those who achieve this Christed vibration experience the oneness of everything. For them it is more than an ideal - it is a knowing.
The path to Christ consciousness is a rocky one. Jesus said: " . . . the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few (Matt. 7-14)." Because the path is so difficult it really helps to have the support of fellow travelers. While I don't believe there is only one way to achieve Christ consciousness, I do think it will help to choose a path that I won't have to travel alone.
Jesus said: "Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them (Matt. 18:20)." This is also known as The Universal Law of Fellowship: "When two or more people of similar vibration are gathered for a shared purpose, their combined energy directed to the attainment of that purpose is multiplied."
This is why I have joined the group of women who are studying Selig's channeled works. Our shared purpose is to raise our combined consciousness in order to make a positive difference in the world. Together I hope that we can help to build a bridge of oneness that humanity so needs more of if it is to thrive.
