“The essence of all wisdom is to know the answers to ‘who am I’? – Rumi
And that question of ‘who am I” has been answered by God through some of the scriptures, spiritual leaders and great scholars of our time.
14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am –Exodus 3:14
It is thought that when God made Moses aware of the name “I Am That I Am” there may have been a simple code that went with it that was lost in translation. This became known as the Moses Code, the application of which, could unlock the true power and meaning of these words.
Its setting is the encounter of the burning bush (Exodus 3:14): Moses asks what he is to say to the Israelites when they ask what God has sent him to them, and Yahweh replies, “I am who I am,” adding, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I am has sent me to you.
I am that I am is a common English translation of the Hebrew phrase אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה, ’ehyeh ’ăšer ’ehyeh – also “I am who am”, “I am what I am” or “I will be what I will be” or even “I create what(ever) I create”
It is believed that the code is actually a comma – “ I am that,I am”
Neale Donald Walsch supports the inclusion of this punctuation mark as he experienced the “pause” first-hand in a series of exercises that he was asked to do by a ‘spiritual teacher’ –
“I want you to change your life in 24hrs, I want you to walk down the street for 60 mins today and I want you to look at everything you see and identify personally with all that is.”
Neale proceeded go through the motion of observing his surroundings and simultaneously saying
I am that, I am that, I am that…
but it was only when he repeated this emphatically (I really am that…I am!!) that he
was overwhelmed by the impact of the pause and concluded that the great name of God together with it’s hidden power had been misunderstood from the beginning of time.
In essence God was saying everywhere you see, you see me.
This revelation became a valuable addition to my spiritual tool box as it enabled me to use my inner compass to release any temptation to judge. It reminded me that we are all fragmented energy from the same source and …
“When you judge another, you do not define them…You define yourself”
How do I incorporate this into my regular practice so as to mentally rehearse this powerful reminder of our Universal Connection?
- Firstly, when I am outside in nature and walking with my client I allow my eyes to gently fall on everything around me and in my mind I repeat the idea that “I am (that blade of grass)” “I am (that feather)” “ I am (that person)” and so it continues
- The second way that I include it in my routine is through meditation and controlled breathing which amplifies the effect – on the in breath I say “I am” and on the out breath I say “I am blank” – the blank being loving, compassionate, understanding, kind, happy, etc – affirming all the emotional traits that I believe to be part of my unique essence.
If we truly believe that we are all connected then there is a good chance that we are mindful of how we treat others and these exercises may contribute to a conscious imprint that consequently raises our vibrations in the name of ‘oneness’.
