What is a decree?
A decree is a powerful affirmation that accesses the power of God within you. It is usually spoken aloud and repeated to amplify its power. And it works!
We have been reminded by the ascended masters that the call compels the answer. The Science of the Spoken Word is solidly based in Cosmic Law.
When you decree, you do so by God’s authority…… and God will answer in the way that is best for your soul.
A sample decree
Decrees can be considered spiritual letters. Most decrees, like letters, are composed of three parts: (1) a greeting, called the “preamble”; (2) the “body” of the decree; and (3) the “closing”.
Preamble: In the name of the beloved mighty victorious Presence of God, I AM in me, my own beloved Higher Self, Higher Selves of all mankind, elemental life—fire, air, water, and earth! I decree:
Body of the Decree: I AM a being of Violet Fire; I AM the Purity God desires. (Recite this decree as many times as you want)
Closing: And in full faith I consciously accept this manifest, manifest, manifest! (3x) right here and now with full Power, eternally sustained, all-powerfully active, ever expanding, and world enfolding until all are wholly ascended in the Light and free! Beloved I AM! Beloved I AM! Beloved I AM.
How do decrees work?
Walking, working, driving…you can decree while you’re doing virtually anything. However, for decrees to be most effective, they are best done in a quiet place suited to praying. You can decree alone. Or to magnify the power of your decrees, you can do them with others.
The practice of decreeing is based upon seven basic principles:
Prayer can be used to create spiritual and material changes in our lives.
Spoken prayer is more effective than silent prayer.
Decrees are the most powerful and effective form of spoken prayer.
When you use God’s name — OM TAT SAT OM (I AM THAT I AM) — in your decrees, you access his unlimited power.
Repeating decrees increases their benefit.
Using visualisations enhances your decrees.
Using breathing techniques can increase the power of your prayers and decrees.
Decrees are ideal for transforming us into God free beings!
One of the most important and vital technique of self-mastery taught by the ascended masters is the science of invocation, which includes the art of decreeing!
The primary purpose of using the Science of the Spoken Word, as you will see, is not to make good things happen —- like getting a new car—- but to put you in contact with your Higher Self and with the ascended masters. Once you have that contact, you can draw on the power of God to bring you the things you need in your life.
