Innocence Defined

Innocence is that state or condition of being innocent, which describes as 1. free from moral wrong; without sin; pure: innocent children. 2. free from legal or specific wrong; guiltless: innocent of the crime.

"Of joys! O there my ravish’d sense

Was entertain’d in Paradise,

And had a sight of innocence

Which was beyond all bound and price.

An antepast of Heaven sure!

I on the earth did reign;

Within, without me, all was pure;

I must become a child again." --Thomas Traherne (1637-1674), from "Innocence"

Archangel Gabriel

In Catholicism, Archangel Gabriel, God's messenger, appeared to the Virgin Mary to announce that she would birth Jesus. Mary had been focusing the image, or vibration, of purity, which allowed her to see this angel and conceive a child in a manner contrary to commonly accepted understanding.

Gabriel serves God's fourth ray that is associated with the base-of-the-spine energy center of the physical body. Gabriel's divine counterpart is Archeia Hope.

The Body's Energy Center of Purity

The base-of-the spine energy center, or chakra, exhibits the color white, symbolic of purity and innocence. It is the center of regeneration and reproduction. In meditation, one can visualize this four-petaled center glistering white.

The Developing Child

When a newborn baby comes into the world, ideally there is a sense of awe and heightened peace surrounding the event. This is because the newborn is rekindling our Heaven memory and brings with it a sense of clearance, of beginning anew. It is the soul's opportunity to start afresh with no encumbrances or mars of error.

As the child grows and adapts to the physical world, he begins to interact to a greater extent with his physical surroundings. At age six, the energy chord that has been attached to the mother disconnects, and by age eight, the young child has free will, the ability to make personal choices (Kristina Slusher-Lentz, Student of Berkeley Psychic Institute).

Letting Go of the Sense of Sin

Much of the doctrine promoted by Western Christianity is that man is stained by "original sin." Some even support the idea of predetermination, a decision already made by God at the time of creation about who is saved and who is condemned.

At the time of Moses during the Age of Aries, the Israelites were given the Ten Commandments on two stone tablets as a code of conduct so people could live in harmony with one another. Among forbidden acts were stealing, adultery, and murder.

During the Piscean dispensation, Jesus taught compassion and forgiveness. His words to the adulterous woman were those of non-judgment and the advice to "Go, and sin no more." He also rose persons from the dead, in a sense nullifying the sting of murder. In multiplying the loaves and the fish and giving to the masses, abundance was exalted--stealing obsolete.

So what is sin? Simply, it is the sense of being separated from God harmony through one's thoughts, words, or deeds. The word comes from the Latin sine, meaning "without." In the book THE CORONA CLASS LESSONS, Jesus and Kuthumi (Saint Francis) stress the importance of letting go of the "sense of sin."

Freeing oneself of the sense of sin involves forgiving oneself of any perceived error, judgment, or self condemnation. It is helpful to surround oneself with harmonious friends, colors, and music. Reciting a simple phrase, "I am pure, I am clean, I am whole" does much to alleviate long-held negativity, which can eventually precipitate as illness or calamity, if not re-polarized.

Explanation of the Chart: According to the teachings of the ascended masters, there is hierarchy in heaven. In classical theology, man is positioned just below the angels and above the elements (animals and minerals). A chohan is the term given to a being who had lived on Earth in human form and ascended to heaven. The term "saint" could be substituted for chohan, but the chohan has mastered a particular quality of God and can focus that quality for the benefit of man. Archangels are those beings who surround the throne of God. The masculine is "archangel" and the feminine form is "archeia." The elohim cover a greater dimension than the angelic realm. All are in cooperation to keep balance and harmony in the Earth and throughout the solar system.

Innocence in Song and Images

Helpful Affirmations to Say

  • I am a child of God.
  • I am pure.
  • I choose to experience unconditional love.
  • I am innocent of all world ills.
  • I am free to love.

When saying affirmations, it is helpful to have a quiet place where you can focus on the meaning of the words without distraction. Said sincerely, the vibration of the voice and words assist you in establishing a pattern of wholeness and the feeling you have when experiencing love and approval. Simply put, the phrases assist in re-establishing your self-esteem.

Remember the unconditional love that the devoted Mother holds for her children. Innocence is your true state of being.

      Excellent purpose, Marie.

      My faith is summed up in 4 words: "There is no problem." If there is god, - then what problem can there be as far as faith goes? If there is not god, then what problem can there be as far as faith goes? Either way, our daily challenge is to use each day wisely and well, which, if done well, leaves little time or need to quarrel about what we cannot know for sure on this plane.

      Thank you, Nellieanna, for pointing out that religion can be left out with regards to cause and effect. Of course, I wrote the article from the perspective as I understand it to be, and the purpose of this piece is to lift the reader out of the sense of sin by reflecting on their true being with images of purity and innocence. I appreciate your taking the time to read and comment. Blessings!

      Sin is also persisting in doing what 'doesn't work' because it defies what one is created to be and to do, and detains one's best from becoming.

      Even if religion is left out of the scene, sin has its consequences and retributions. Even if religion is left out of it, not sinning or repenting of sinning have their rewards and satisfactions.

      In a way, what could speak more clearly of a true god? Why should or would such a god need to wait to bestow the progress of what's been 'built in'?
