planes. Mankind cannot free itself of the results
of its mistakes without the use of the Violet

thoughts, feelings, actions and spoken words can be cleansed, recharged and requalified with all the Consciousness and
Qualities of the Christ Self. This knowledge has been a great
Gift of Compassion to individuals who search for forgiveness
and for a more harmonious way of life.

Spiral as quickly
as possible without 'passing through the
change called death'.
