Mariya: Hello, friend. I am Mariya and welcome to the "Conversations with my Higher Self" podcast. This show is about spirituality, consciousness, and the inner workings of the universe at large. My partner, Sergei, uses hypnosis to bring me into a deep theta state where I get a chance to connect with my higher self. He then interviews me to uncover a wealth of knowledge about higher realms, celestial beings, and various energetic practices.


Sergei: I wanted to talk to you about the red flame next. What does it do? What properties does it have?

Mariya:  Sure. So, the red flame, like I said, is the flame of inspired action, passion, raw expression, something that can spread really quickly in a bad and a good way actually. It's interesting, because it happens to be the flame of an epidemic or the news that travels the world, but anything that kind of catches on fire and just spreads around really, really, quickly. 

That's the energy of the red flame, yeah.

Then, of course, there is the shadow aspect of the red flame, which would be feeling stagnant. So, the absence of action, feeling stuck, feeling no movement, feeling apathy, or feeling like nothing is exciting anymore. Or everything is the same in the world and you don't want to move because you've seen it all and why would you?

Red is also the flame of revolutions. Now, whether you consider that to be a good or bad thing, it's all a matter of perspective. You could either believe that it is a shadow aspect of a red flame or the normal positive aspect of the red flame. Because, very often, revolutions happen for a reason and sometimes actually help fix something on a societal level in a very positive way. But revolutions are also quite bloody.

So, the energy of red is never that of patience. It's, like I said, the energy of passion. So, the shadow aspect of the red flame could be bloodlust. It could be being cruel, angry, inconsiderate, causing people pain. It's a little bit of the energy of the executioner where they feel like the means justify the ends.

It's not a very gentle flame. It's a very hot energy. It's probably on the hottest of the spectrum. I would also say that the shadow aspect of passion is nervousness. So, it's that same blood that's pumping in your chest, in your heart, but it has this nervous, uneasy, neurotic, type of aspect. That would be the shadow aspect of the red flame.

Sergei:  And impatience. Is it also a shadow aspect of the red flame?

Mariya:  A little bit, a little bit. It could also be a shadow aspect of the blue flame actually. Impatience can take many, many, forms.

Sergei:  I see, I see. And is there a corresponding chakra for this flame?

Mariya:  Well, you know the answer, right?

Sergei:  The red one: root.

Mariya:  Yes, of course, the root chakra, yes.

Sergei:  The root chakra. Got it. And how would you describe a person who mastered a red flame?

Mariya:  So, somebody who's mastered the red flame–and we're talking about the higher aspects of the red flame, not the lower aspects–is somebody who is a great leader, somebody who can manifest really well in the physical, who can unite people around a common goal, who can create something from nothing, who can help disseminate an idea and make it a world-wide phenomenon.

Somebody who sees what needs to be built in the universe and rolls up their sleeves and does it, as opposed to waiting for somebody else to do the work for them. Again, it's the flame of that inspired action. So, the red flame, once it's mastered, it's not a stagnant energy. It's not somebody who just shows up and is content with the status quo and is just is content with living a mediocre life or having a mediocre society.

So, it's somebody who just needs to get going, who loves the movement, who loves transformation, who loves taking the world from a worse place to a better place, and not only wants it, but has the tools to be able to make it happen. So, it's that energy that can literally light the fire under the belly of a lot of people.

Sergei:  Hm. Yeah. That's powerful. And are there any crystals that work with the red flame?

Mariya:  Yeah. So, there is ruby. There is garnet. A lot of black crystals too work really well with this energy. They're able to sustain it because the red energy comes in spurts. It's not something that's very easy to sustain over time. Imagine a fire, because energy can be like unto a fire and lighting something up. It's very hard for a fire to maintain its full capacity for a very, very, long time, right?

Sergei: Yeah.

Mariya: You see, the fire's kind of blazing, but it would kind of go back to being a baby fire and then go back to its full potential again. So, it's almost like a spiral, or everything is cyclical. So, for the fire to not be extinguished, it actually could use the help of the black crystals, anything that's magnetic, or a piece of meteorite.

Because it's like the coals to that flame. They're able to contain that energy in a very healthy state, then fuel it when the red really needs it. If you want to work with the higher aspects of the red energy, any white crystal is also really, really, good. It helps purify the intention. The reds do tend to be–and that's another shadow aspect–a little bit selfish sometimes in the way that, if they think that something is wrong in the world, they believe that everybody else is seeing the same thing.

And, if they're willing to build the new world, they're not necessarily taking other people's opinions into consideration. They only take their own. So, purifying the red aspect with the white is actually really, really, helpful. So, any white crystal can be helpful here, white or transparent, in terms of purifying the intention and making sure it serves a higher good.

Sergei:  Got it. And same question about plants and herbs and maybe essential oils. Are there any?

Mariya:  Cinnamon. You can do powder or stick, adding it to a drink. Coffee, caffeine actually, interestingly enough. But it does make sense though, right? Because caffeine gives you energy and that red flame consumes a lot of physical energy to get into inspired action. It's the opposite of meditating. You're like, "Okay. I've arrived. I awoke. What are we going to do today?"

So, obviously, black tea, same, any form of caffeine. Anise, same, gets you fired up. Honey is actually really good. It helps level the flame and it's one of those energies that helps sustain the flame. So, if you're the person that gets burned out easily, I would actually recommend honey, adding it into your tea or just having it after a meal as a treat, honey sticks as a substitute for chocolate.

That's really good for maintaining very, very, healthy levels of physical energy without burnout. Let's see. What else? Red apple is really good. You can do dried apple also. Clove, yeah. So, things like that.

Sergei:  What about spices? Like pepper?

Mariya:  Clove is a spice. Yeah, pepper as well. Black pepper would work really well with this kind of energy. I think you're catching my drift. Anything that is spicy would definitely fire it up, like cayenne pepper is good as well. Even paprika, yeah. There's a lot in that fiery feisty energy that's really good. Red berries, actually, and hibiscus tea also work really well with this energy.

Sergei:  That's a lot of things.

Mariya:  There is a lot, yeah. Well, there's a lot in 3D, because this is a really good third-dimensional energy.

Sergei:  Yeah, to practice on Earth, yeah. And can you share a meditation that we can use to, I guess, master the red flame? Probably working with the shadow side and maybe this nervousness, like fear.

Mariya:  A meditation that would help work with the shadow side of the red flame.

Sergei:  Mm-hmm.

Mariya:  Nervousness or impatience. I was actually thinking, first, maybe I'll just give what I intended to give you. And then, I could give you another one.

Sergei:  Yeah, please.

Mariya:  So, as I mentioned, one of the issues when you're working with the red flame is burnout. Because you’re really go a thousand miles per second and, while it drives you, it also drives you crazy.

Sergei:  Oh, you have to refuel.

Mariya:  Not only do you have to refuel, but you have to find a way to work with this energy in a way that is sustainable for your physical body. Because what you don't want to have is a period of one week when you're going literally 24/7 and you're like, "Go, go, go," and then it's a three-week period of replenishment where you're so drained that you literally can't get yourself out of bed.

And that sometimes tends to happen with people that are practicing the red energy, because it literally consumes them from within. You want to find a way to work with the red flame where it doesn't consume you but gives you that constant support when you need it. You need to get yourself to a perpetual inspired action flow, instead of a haphazard and sporadic inspired action flow, because it's easier to control and it's, quite frankly, better for your body. And you're not going to burn from within.

There are a whole lot of diseases that come from an imbalanced or disbalanced red flame, including joint pain. It actually causes potential digestion issues. It could cause muscle pain. It could even cause you to break a bone. There’re all kinds of things that disbalanced red flame does that are not ideal or optimal for somebody's well-being.

So, what we recommend is, if you're feeling that red flame inside of you–and, if you came to practice it, you would be, and it lives somewhere inside of your body–we recommend to contain it, encapsulating it into a crystal sphere or you can cover it with a cloche, with a dome, that would preserve that flame.

And, on the one hand what that would do is keep that flame forever burning, but at a more contained pace. So, it would contain your fire in a way that's very manageable for you, instead of allowing it to burn through your resources. So, you want to keep it inside of your body, but contained within this glass sphere or container. And then, if you need to tap into it, you can always temporarily lift...

Sergei:  The dome?

Mariya:  The dome, and then allow that flame to rage. For instance, if you are having a public speaking engagement and you want to bring your A-Game because you want to influence someone, just let that fire burn. But then, make sure that, before you go to bed, it's contained.

You never want that fire raging in you before going to bed without containing it, because you're going to have a lot of trouble with your sleep. Because it's that energy that wants to act, "What are you doing sleeping over here? What do you mean you're tired? I want to keep going."

And so, you want to make sure that that red energy is as contained as can be, so you can get the rest that your body needs. Because that red energy is not the most balanced energy. It does not necessarily think that you could burn out. It just keeps pushing you and pushing you and pushing you. And, of course, in this 3D world, we do need to interchange the periods of action with the periods of relaxation. Otherwise, it's just not sustainable long-term.

So, that is what I wanted to recommend of how you can work with the red flame. And I think it's very, very, important for those people that feel that drive, over-achievers, go-getters. All the people that just like to move, move, move, and make things happen, tend to have that red energy being a big part of themselves. And it's very important to contain that flame.

Sergei:  Yeah. I myself feel it a lot.

Mariya:  Yeah, you have it. You for sure have it. And that's part of the reason why it's hard for you to sleep at night. So, I would definitely recommend covering that flame with a cloche, so that you can just relax. Another thing that the red flame does, in your body in particular, it creates an over-abundance of thoughts. It's really hard for you to quiet your mind.

Sergei:  So, it's the flame. So, basically, it's the flame that creates all these thoughts.

Mariya:  Well, it's the energy. It's the energy that's coursing through your body and it...

Sergei:  Attracts it?

Mariya:  It attracts it, yeah. It's just that vibration that requires activity. It draws to it activity and the absence of peace and the absence of calm. And, if it's very active in your brain–which, in your case, it is–it just creates thoughts that are really hard to get rid of. And that's why it's hard to fall asleep, because there's always more thoughts to think.

Sergei:  So, it means that it's like this monkey mind, right? Just always talking, talking, talking. But it does means that most of the people have these issues, right?

Mariya:  A lot of people are dealing with the red flame. I don't know if you notice, but that's the problem, because the red is all about taking action. These thoughts are really hard to deal with as you're trying to fall asleep, because you know this is not the time to take action, right? And so, you're at a loss like, "What am I supposed to do with these? They're firing off like crazy. I am not about to take action at midnight. So, what do I do with these?"

And so, it's a really, really, hard, tough, place to be. And honestly, the only way to deal with it is to cover that flame up until morning. Because it's not a bad thing. It's a positive thing. It's the energy that moves the world around, but there's a time and place for everything. And, unfortunately, the red flame is really bad at distinguishing what is the good timing and what is bad timing. It's just like, "If it goes, it goes."

And then, the other part is, when you're really drained, what you're experiencing is the flame is extinguished. So, for people that have a really, really, strong red energy, they sometimes go through a period of intense fatigue where they're like, "I don't know why I'm so tired." And it's because that flame is not being balanced.

It means that it kind of burned itself out. And it can happen. It goes through cycles. It can happen to someone a couple of times a day or once a month or once a year. It depends on what schedule your red flame is on. And so, that's why you want to establish controlled, measurable, fire, instead of uncontrollable and then nothing.

Sergei:  Got it. So, you have to take it under control.

Mariya:  Yes. Yes, managing the energy, instead of allowing the energy to manage you, is paramount.

Sergei:  Mm-hmm. That's super helpful for me personally. I'm going to practice it today.

Mariya:  Yes, do that.

Sergei:  Yeah. And what advice would you give to people who burn out, like how to refuel?

Mariya:  Yes. So, it's actually interesting. Because people who burn out, what they don't understand is, they're trying to cure the burnout with more fire. And that's not the way to do it. So, they're like, "I'm burned out. Let me light that fire. Let me light that fire." The thing is, the soil is not ready to receive more fire, right? So, what you need to do before you can rekindle that fire is you need some water.

So, you need to nurture your body with water. You need to bring that energy into your body and let it soothe the burned-out terrain that cannot birth any life? So, imagine yourself in a body of water, like a lake. And allow that water to consume you. And you can float very nicely in that body of water, but also allow the water to penetrate your body and wash over all of your internal organs and then nurture every aspect of your body that has been thirsting for water.

Generally, a soil that's burned out, it's a soil that has no water that has no water because, as the fire burns, the water evaporates. So, your body does not retain as much water. And you're actually desert-like thirsty. And so, before the fire can be rekindled, the water needs to rejoin its rightful place in your body.

And then, new things can grow. And, as new things can grow, one of the things that can grow is fire again. So, it's counterintuitive but if you want to prevent burnout, you shouldn't go to fire. Because the fire never burns in a soil that has already been burned out.

Sergei:  Oh, wow. Yeah, that's counterintuitive, but now it makes so much sense. Yeah, I didn't know that. Wow.

Mariya:  Yeah. And it's quite useless to try to push your body to produce more fire when it's already burned out. Because, A: It doesn't have anywhere to take it. B: Even if you use an inhuman amount of effort to kindle that fire, you cannot sustain it, because there's, quote-on-quote, "not enough nutrients," and whatever the fire needs in the ground, as well as carbon-dioxide, for the fire to keep going. So, you need to reset your system. And, for you to reset your system, you always need water.

Sergei:  Mm-hmm. And what flame corresponds to the water? How can you incorporate and have this kind of partnership between the red flame and then another one that works with water?

Mariya:  There are many aspects of water. The one that works the best with the red flame is the white flame. You could call the white flame, "heavenly waters." It's the flame of purification, as I mentioned, higher dimensions. White is also the flame of creation. It's the flame of unity.

There's so much that it is a flame of, but one of its aspects is a very strong water aspect and the other aspect of it that's very strong is air. And so, both are actually really potentially purifying and good for the red. And they help elevate the red. And they help purify the intentions of the red. And they help the red come out of the sulfur zone into the "what's good for everybody" zone.

Sergei:  Mm-hmm. Yeah. It sounds like a good meditation, before you go to sleep, right? So, you [Inaudible 00:25:34] during the day. And then, you can burn out. And then, before you go to sleep, you have this meditation with water and...

[Crosstalk 00:25:43]

Mariya:  Yeah, you could. But, of course, you don't necessarily need to completely put out the fire when you go to bed. Because it's still burning, it's part of your energy, right? It's like saying, "Oh, I don't need this aspect of me," or like, "I'm in denial that I need it." But there is a forest fire that takes on square miles of land. And then, there is a candle. Both are aspects of fire.

When you go to bed, you just need a candle. You don't necessarily need a raging fire within. So, that's what I mean when I say that you have to just manage the dimension and manage the scale of that fire within. You don't have to absolutely extinguish it for the night. That might be a little labor-intensive. But, if you absolutely want to be in that water state, you sure could. I don't necessarily see how changing from the yang aspect to the yin aspect could hurt in that regard.

Sergei:  Mm-hmm. Got it, thank you. And are there any other flames that work well with the red one? We already know that the white one and the blue one, right?

Mariya:  Yeah. The yellow works really, really, good with the red. That can give you inspired and also joyful action, when you take true joy in your accomplishments. Both flames–the yellow and the red–are warm. The yellow flame is a little bit more tampered and contained and a little bit less detrimental, potentially. So, it's almost like a milder form of a fire. So, it's nice to have that aspect collaborate with red flame.

Sergei:  Mm-hmm. And are there any archangels that–I don't know how to put it, but–maybe serve the flame or work with the flame or represent the flame?

Mariya:  Yeah. Archangel Uriel would be for the red. Archangel Michael would be for the blue. Archangel Gabriel would be for the white. Archangel Raphael would be for the green. Archangel Sachiel would be for the yellow.

Sergei:  Mm-hmm. And how can you work with these archangels to amplify the power of the flame?

Mariya:  Well, you can always call on to a particular archangel to assist you with understanding the flame, what it's all about, and helping you work with it. These archangels are there to oversee the flame and make sure that never gets extinguished so everybody on the earthly plane can work with the flames.

Very often, when you work with the flames, it's not the actual archangel, who is kind of like the guardian of the flame, that would be working with you, but it's one of their helpers. So, in this archangel's case, they're kind of busy. And then, they have bigger fish to fry. So, for Michael, making sure that the blue flame is available and is healthy and is ever-present and never goes out, is a big priority. As opposed to working with a particular individual that's working with the blue flame.

But you can always ask him for assistance. And, if you feel like your meditation is not having enough of an impact, what you could ask from an archangel would be to multiply the impact 100X or 1000X. You can always fall back on the angel to help with accentuating the flame's impact and work.

Sergei:  Mm-hmm. That's very powerful. So, you can amplify the power of the flame with the help of archangels, even by a thousand times.

Mariya:  Absolutely. What's a thousand times to an archangel?

Sergei:  Right. So, if you practice flame meditation, you should definitely ask for an assistance.

Mariya:  Yeah, an assistance or a blessing. Whatever resonates with you.

Sergei:  Yeah. Are there any other beings that work with flame, can help you with flames?

Mariya:  Absolutely. Dragons are really, really, helpful. They come from the same primordial energy. So, each flame has the dragons that help protect it and guard it and work with it. They generally tend to be the same color. So, red dragons for the red flame, blue dragons for the blue flame, kind of self-explanatory.

Elementals. Each flame has its elemental or multiple elementals that are supporting it. For the blue flame, it is supported actually by mermaids, for instance. The blue flame is also supported by whales. A lot of water creatures support the blue flame. The red flame is supported by elementals that govern Earth also. So, Earth and Inner Earth, so the center of the planet, the magma. The elementals that watch out for earthquakes, for instance, and the movement of the tectonic plates.

Those would be supportive of the red flame energy. The green flame is supported by elves, elven magic, and plant kingdom quite heavily. The yellow flame is supported by birds, the bird kingdom. The yellow flame is also supported by the elementals of air and wind. So, there's a lot.

Sergei:  Mm-hmm. And what about the violet one?

Mariya:  The violet flame is supported by felines, so big cats, house cats, all kinds of cats. The violet flame is supported by the mineral kingdom. So, all kinds of crystals, stones, support the violet flame.

Sergei:  And how can you use them? These elements or, for example, cats. Just ask them for assistance during that meditation?

Mariya:  You could, or even having a house cat when you work with the violet flame is very helpful. Having cat ornaments or cat images in the same room. Anything like that would help.

Sergei:  Oh, that's awesome. Okay. Yeah, I think that's it for today's questions about flames. Thank you so much for sharing this information with us. It's super helpful. We're definitely going to practice these meditations. I'm definitely going to do the red one today. I really need it.

Mariya:  Yes.

Sergei:  All right, yeah. Thank you so much for sharing all this information. And now, I'm going to end our session. I'm very grateful for the information you provided us today. I'm asking the subconsciousness to recede to where it belongs, with much love and much thanks for the help and information it has given to Mariya today. I know she is really going to appreciate it. Now, I want all the consciousness and personality of Mariya to once again return and fully integrate back into the body completely.
