02 ~ Course Introduction

Be Peace Now is a tool to help us create peace within our own hearts, and to share this with the world. It is based on these simple concepts; all things are energy, and energy is constantly changing. Every person on this planet is a powerful spiritual being and, in our own way, we are each affecting change.

Many people have experienced a demonstration of the reality that thought and prayer create change. Have you ever prayed for a sunny day for a special event, or used the power of positive thought to manifest the perfect parking place? These are basic examples of how we can create our own reality with our thoughts. . . so why limit this power?

Imagine what will happen when, daily, you use the power of the spoken word, prayer, and special energetic techniques focused to raise the peace vibration, and heal our Earth. Now imagine what will happen when millions, or billions of people around the planet do this too.

Be Peace Now contains a specific set of techniques that can be easily incorporated into our daily life to create peace consciousness and heal the Earth.

All over the world there are groups who meet to meditate and pray for world peace. This course is designed to enhance this work, empower it and accelerate healing and creation of, or awakening to peace.

This course, or program, is a spiritual healing practice designed for people of all religions, or of no religion. We all possess the Christed Consciousness, the essence of enlightenment, but most of us are not yet fully awake to it’s full potential within us. This course can help awaken our dormant, enlightened, inner knowing. If the term Christed Consciousness causes you concern, I would ask you to reflect on the Divine Light that has been present in all avatars, i.e. Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, the Divine Mother; and know that this is what is meant by the term. I would ask you also to reflect upon the fact that all avatars delivered the message that we each carry within us this same Divine Light, the Christed Consciousness, the essence of enlightenment. These terms are synonymous.

This course has been developing for over forty years, and has grown out of a personal childhood experience. One summer, while on vacation with my family, I was playing in the Atlantic Ocean in Florida. I was pushed under the water by a wave, and was held under for what seemed to be eternity. Just as I began to panic, I was “inspired” to breathe very gently and not draw the water into my lungs, but to simply ask the oxygen in the water to help me breathe. I did exactly as I was told, and immediately became calm and peaceful.

I then saw a light growing gradually brighter and from this light a form came forth. I recognized this form to be Jesus, Jehovah-Shalom, and suddenly he was surrounded by many beings that I could not identify at that time.

As this form appeared clearer to me, from his chest a bubble of light appeared. It was beautiful, shimmering and iridescent. The bubble burst, not like one would expect, but it burst slowly and gently and from it emerged a beautiful symbol. That symbol is Utumei, and is explained later in this course. He then spoke to me and said;

“Laurelle, remember, remember, remember.. . with this we shall create peace”.

In that moment I found myself standing up, unharmed and very happy to be alive. I didn’t think much of this experience for many years. However, powerful events in my life unfolded to teach me of energy, and the fact that we are all spiritual beings capable of emanating the full power of Universal, Divine healing love. In 1994, I recalled the childhood experience very clearly and I began to receive light and energetic messages containing certain vibrations and information. One of the messages said that these were “transmissions of Infinite Light”. I began to share this information, as I was guided, with people who I knew to be experienced with healing energies, prayer and the power of positive thought.

Every person who incorporated the transmissions into their personal lives, or their healing work, reported beautiful experiences of healing, spiritual growth and empowerment.

Many have found, that after exposure and integration of these energies, they became keenly aware of their personal “calling” in life. They were awakened to their latent abilities as artists, musicians, composers, healers, effective parents, inspirational speakers, etc. Simply by allowing this energy into their lives, people are remembering who they are.

I have been given the missing pieces of information that I longed to receive; the instructions on how this was to be used. This is a Course for Peace, for healing the Earth and increasing the frequency rate of the peace vibration on our planet. I was told when to teach the first class, what to teach and I was given a full course outline, and ultimately guided to write Be Peace Now.

I struggled with this a bit, fearing that perhaps I would not communicate it properly, or effectively and I didn’t want to make a mistake or misinterpret something. This presented me with the opportunity to heal and remove the filters I was allowing to exist between my mind and the Divine mind.

The Infinite Light continued to move through me, helping me look at my insecurities and heal that egoic interference.

Because of this, I am now able to humbly offer this course to you with all my love. I have done my best to present these abstract concepts clearly, and it is my sincere prayer that you find it easy to follow and you are inspired to begin to use it to help heal our Earth and to become peace.

Your participation, at whatever level you choose, is acknowledged and appreciated. You are an instrument of peace and healing by the simple act of reading this and allowing your consciousness to flow and merge with the peace stream.
