Widening the Central Channel
Figure 6. Widening the Central Channel
Once the student has completed building the central channel from the Soul Star
to the Earth Star, the channel needs to be widened to increase its capacity to
transmit Soul and planetary energies. Before the Rainbow Bridge Phase 2
clearing work can be started, the central vertical channel must be widened to
at least one inch in diameter. The phase 2 clearing work involves the
elimination of ancient thought forms, carried over from many past lives, that
stand between you and the accurate perception of truth and prevent fusion with
Once the central channel is one inch in diameter, continued work expands the
channel to four or five inches. As the central channel is widened,
increasing quantities of soul energy flow through the channel and are radiated
into the energy field. This energy is utilized by the soul to remove the
obstacles to union with the Soul and to blend the energies of the Soul with
those of the personality (physical, emotional, and mental) to achieve Soul
consciousness or superconsciousness.
How to Widen the Central Vertical Channel
1. Say the Soul Mantram, out loud if possible, and identify your
consciousness with your Soul. From this point act as if you are the Soul
as you do the rest of the process.
2. Optional, but If working with a Rainbow Bridge group, link Soul Star to
Soul Star with your group members whether they are physically present or not. The
group link adds power to your personal process. Link to the Spiritual
Hierarchy, and any fully enlightened spiritual master or saint with which you
are affiliated such as Christ
or as he is known in the east Lord Maitreya, Buddha, Krishna, Shiva, Imam
3. Say the Mantram of Unification
"The sons of men are one
and I am one with them,
I seek to love, not hate;
I seek to serve and not exact due service;
I seek to heal not hurt.
Let pain bring due reward of light and love.
Let the Soul control the outer form and life and all events,
And bring to light the love that underlies the happenings of the time.
Let vision come and insight.
Let the future stand revealed.
Let inner union demonstrate and outer cleavages be gone.
Let love prevail.
Let all men love."
The Tibetan Master has made the following comment on the
Mantram of Unification:
"These words may seem inadequate, but said with power
and an understanding of their significance and with the potency of the
mind and heart behind them, they can prove unbelievably potent in the life
of the one who says them. They will produce also an effect in his
environment, and the accumulated effects in the world, as you spread the
knowledge of the formula, will be great and effective. It will change
attitudes, enlighten the vision and lead the aspirant to fuller service
and to a wider cooperation based upon sacrifice. My brothers, you cannot
evade the sacrifice in the long run, even if you have evaded it until now."
(p. 142, Externalization of the Hierarchy).
4. Make one large triangle from the Soul Star to the Earth Star as shown in
Figure 6 above.
5. As you move the Soul Star up the channel, visualize it moving in a
clockwise (from left to right) corkscrew motion boring a path through the
channel up to the position of the resting position of the Soul Star, six
inches above the head. Imagine the channel is being widened as the Soul
Star moves up the channel. Do the big triangle 3-5 times per
6. Invoke the spiritual whirlwind or etheric vortex for 3-5 minutes.
"In the wisdom of the Soul, I invoke the spiritual whirlwind."
See it spinning in a clockwise manner.
7. End the process with a prayer for universal good will or peace
appropriate to your spiritual background and culture. A suggested closing
for ending the process is the Great Invocation.
The Great Invocation
"From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let Light Stream forth into the minds of men.
Let light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let Love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.
From the center where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men?
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the center which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out.
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth. "

Trust. This version also substitutes the phrase "the Coming
One" for "Christ"
Repeat the process twice per day for approximately three to four weeks to expand
the channel to one inch in diameter. After widening
the channel to one inch in diameter, you may begin the phase two
clearing process or choose to continue the central channel widening
process indefinitely. Since most people cannot see or really sense
how wide the channel is, you will have to use the number of days you
spend widening the channel to gage your progress.
Permanent Gains from the Daily Practice of using the Soul Invocation,
the Soul Star to Earth Star Triangle, and using the Spiritual Whirlwind
The clearing work that is done is permanent. Once the external
patterns are removed they do not return.
When the central channel is completed and expanded to one inch in
diameter, it is immediately used to channel energies and forces by the
Soul and constitutes a valuable and necessary link between the
Hierarchy and Humanity. The central channel is a magnetic tube
through which rainbow fire flows. Its magnetic surface insulates it from
your bodies (physical, emotional, and mental). However, radiation
from the channel spreads beyond the central vertical channel into the
body and the aura. This radiation gradually clears the area into which
the radiation has penetrated. The radiation increases as the
central vertical channel increases in size, until the entire body is in
its light. Based on the effects of the radiation from the central
channel on the clearing of external patterns (psychic debris) from the
aura, the originators of the Rainbow Bridge techniques concluded that
radiation from the central vertical channel in time, how long they
did not know, would clear the vehicles if the Central Channel was kept
clear, the Soul Mantram used, and the spiritual whirlwind was employed.
They were able to confirm their conclusion that radiation from the
central vertical channel could clear the external patterns when a
student who had built the central channel but had not started the phase
2 clearing process decided to leave the Rainbow Bridge work for ten
years but continued to use the Soul Invocation, triangles, and
etheric vortex. After ten years away from the Rainbow Bridge prototype
group, this person returned. Upon her return, it was observed by
Josephine and Norman Stevens, the authors of the Rainbow Bridge books,
that the central vertical channel had been enlarged and more than half
of her external patterns had been eliminated. Norman stated that what
took ten years for the Channel to clear alone could have been done in
two years with the tested phase 2 clearing techniques. Current thinking
suggest that the if the number of times the Soul Star is moved through
the central channel per session is increased and the conscious intent is
held that the external patterns will be cleared or transmuted by this
process, the Soul Star will clear the external patterns as quickly as the Phase II word forms
can, if not faster. The good news is that we
know that moving the Soul Star through the channel does remove the
external patterns. A three year case study with three students was
conducted to test this hypothesis. The results showed that the
clearing process could be accelerated using the Soul Star radiation
technique. See the results here.
Instructions for the Soul Star Clearing process can be found here.
Based on the fact that continued widening of the central channel aids in
clearing the external patterns, the following exercise is suggested for
those students who are already involved in a spiritual practice but feel
it would be useful to take a few months to build the central channel and
widen it but for whatever reason choose not to continue on to the phase
The following exercise can be done on a daily basis before your regular
spiritual practice or as a quick centering and alignment technique.
It is suggested that it be done in the morning and evening after
returning home from work or any time you want to center your self.
It is quick, effective, and easy. It takes 5 minutes or less to
Daily Alignment, Centering and Clearing Exercise.
1. Sound the Soul Mantram. Pause after each line. Be aware of the
strengthening of the antahkarana as lines of light are projected to the
Higher Self as each line is sounded. Feel the downpour of light as
the Soul Star and permanent atoms (mental, buddhic, and atmic) radiate
their light to the personality.
2. Optional, but desirable. If working with a Rainbow Bridge group, link Soul Star to
Soul Star with your group members whether they are physically present or not. The
group link adds power to your personal process. Per your preference, you
may also link to the Spiritual
Hierarchy, and any enlightened spiritual master or saint of your preference such as
or as he is known in the east Lord Maitreya, Buddha, Krishna, Shiva,
Iman Mahdi, etc.
3. Make a large triangle from the Soul Star to the Earth Star as shown
in Figure 6.
4. As you move the Soul Star up the channel, visualize it
moving in a clockwise (from left to right) corkscrew motion boring a
path through the channel up to the position of the resting position of
the Soul Star, six inches above the head. Imagine the channel is being
widened as the Soul Star moves up the channel and the
radiation from the Soul Star is clearing your vehicles of negativity and
filling them with light. Once the
Soul Star reaches its normal resting place, 6 inches above the head,
move it straight down the central vertical channel to the Earth Star.
Then reverse direction and visualize it moving in a clockwise (from left
to right) corkscrew motion boring a path through the channel up to the
position of the resting position of the Soul Star.
5. Invoke the spiritual whirlwind for 3 minutes.
6. Ask for daily guidance. "In the wisdom of the Soul and to
serve soul purpose, I draw what I need from the Source of Light, Love,
7. End the alignment exercise with a prayer, mantram, or invocation
appropriate for your spiritual path. Some suggestions are the Mantram of Unification or
the Great Invocation to close the practice. Continue with your other
spiritual practice or proceed with the phase two clearing work.
