The Revelations to John is a metaphysical and mystical guidebook to moving from sense consciousness into spiritual consciousness.  It starts with the earthly realm and gives us inspiration to overcome challenges in our daily lives.  Barbara Marx Hubbard in Revelations: Our Crisis is a Birth provides Mantras that I found can apply to each of the Seven Churches.  Find your greatest growth edge and then gift yourself with the Mantra that will inspire you.


The Church at Ephesus                      For loss of faith and the ability to deal with challenges

I AM FAITH.  I know there is a perfect Design of creation.  Each of us is a vital element in that design.  I know I am now acting in perfect harmony with that Design.

The Church at Smyrna                       For being caught in the material world and its changes

I AM WISDOM.  I distinguish what is breaking through from what is breaking down.  I identify with what is breaking through and I release what is breaking down.

The Church at Pergamum      For straying from the Path when confused or afraid

I AM PATIENCE.  The timing is not in my hands.   I live in eternity.  I act in the present.  I am fulfilled.  I surrender all need to know the timing, and act in joy.

The Church at Thyatira                      For being judgmental, intolerant or passive

            I AM POWER.  To the degree that I empower others I am now empowered.

The Church at Sardis              For being afraid to trust the Inner Voice

            I AM SURRENDER.  Not my will, but thy will be done on Earth as it is in heaven.

The Church at Philadelphia   For needing to be more compassionate and loving

I AM LOVE.  I love God above all else, my neighbor as myself, and myself                                         as a Natural Christ.

The Church at Laodicea                     For loss of passion and expression of Inner Calling

I AM COURAGE.  I know that I am not working alone.  I am surrounded by mighty companions on this Earth and in the universe beyond.  Together we work toward the inevitable victory.


Revelations 3:22 – 4:1    Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is telling the churches.  After this I looked, and there in heaven a door stood open!
