In a series of recent embodiments from the prophet Samuel to Francis Bacon, Saint Germain was the all-pervasive mind, laying the empirical foundation for an age of enlightenment, pushing back the barriers of limitation in the physical and spiritual sciences. As Roger Bacon he directed and inspired devotees of the sacred science, then in his embodiment as Saint Germain, the Wonderman of Europe, he outpictured the quintessence of the alchemists’ dream for all to see.
The Ascended Master Saint Germain teaches that the highest alchemy is the transformation of one’s human consciousness into the divinity of the Higher Self. He stands ready to assist all souls in this endeavor. He has also said he would release the technology of the Aquarian age when the nations shall have put behind them the destructive uses of science and religion to accept the challenge which lies at the heart of both, which is for man to enter his heart and the nucleus of the atom and to harness from both the unlimited spiritual and physical resources to establish the golden age.
His etheric retreats are located over Transylvania in Romania and Table Mountain in Wyoming.
He wrote in cipher, "I trusteth all to the future and a land that is very far towards the sunset gate....I keep the future ever in my plan, looking for my reward, not to my times and countrymen, but to a people very far off, and an age not like our own, but a second golden age of learning."
Having discovered the continent and encouraged its colonization, he must also insure a proper foundation for the new nation. Saint Germain stood by George Washington throughout the Revolution and during the winter at Valley Forge. His past efforts in initiating the society of Freemasons had enfired many of the key figures of the Revolution. General Washington, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, John Hancock, Benjamin Franklin and as many as fifty-three out of the fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Independence were all members of the Masonic order, whose principles had guided them in founding the new nation. Further, Saint Germain called for the signing of the Declaration of Independence, directed the writing of the Constitution and anointed Washington first President of the United States.
America was secured as the land of opportunity and Saint Germain devoted himself to the raising of the consciousness of her people.
In the twentieth century, the Master went before the Lords of Karma to plead the cause of freedom for and on behalf of the original 576 he has sponsored, expanding that circle to include the Lightbearers of all centuries--the original Keepers of the Flame who came with Sanat Kumara as well as the children of God who had been evolving unto the spiritual gifts and graces through earth's numerous ages.
However, as the decades have passed, the rate of increase in the return of mankind's karma has precipitated what is known as the Dark Cycle--the era of Chaos and old Night whose signs are foretold in Revelation, even as the hoof beats of the Four Horsemen can be heard throughout the land.
Let us listen to the prophet Samuel--dubbed Uncle Sam by his people--who has indeed begun to sound his prophecy to the chosen. He has warned that the I AM Race--those who have the seed of the name I AM THAT I AM within their hearts--"have not hearkened unto the LORD, nor have they fulfilled the wholeness of the Law." Therefore, the Master says:
- Some among this people must be and become direct initiates of Sanat Kumara, for always there has been the requirement of the ransom. Let those who are the inner circle of the devotees, those who are the first fruits who come and stand as the ensign of the people, raise up the banner of Christ as the one whom they serve, the one who by his very Communion promise at the Last Supper designated each and every son and daughter of God for the internalization of the Word...
- Unfortunately, and this word is mild, but it is unfortunate indeed that the laws of Christ and his Teachings, so meticulously brought forth to the close initiates, are not fully known today, having been taken even from the holy people. Therefore, to obey Christ becomes the challenge of the hour--to find the Person of that Christ, to find the Way and the Teachings.
- You have received the lost Word and the lost Teachings of Jesus Christ through our effort....As a result of this, you have been strengthened and protected in that Word and Teaching. And some from among you have taken their leave at the conclusion of their embodiment and gone on in the full resurrection with Jesus Christ....Thus, the proof of the Teaching and the Path is that it leads one successively to that higher and higher consciousness where unto the individual is assumed into the very heart of the I AM Presence [becoming indeed the pure Person of that Christ].
Today, as we see the cycles of earth's returning karma reach a mounting crescendo wherein even the four sacred freedoms are threatened, the Brotherhood has set aside a place in America's Rocky Mountains for the pursuit of the Lost Teachings of Christ to their fullest expression.
Saint Germain spoke of it in 1983 when he said that we have come "to a similar moment to that of that final hour of the golden age when I presided where the Sahara now is. My family is much larger than it was then, for I include every one of you who love me as my very own family.... In that hour, our family was taken to the golden etheric city of light. In this hour, we have summoned you to a higher place in the mountains of the north."
Our beloved Saint Germain and his twin flame, the Ascended Lady Master Portia.
Ascended Master Lady Vesta is a feminine force like no other. She is a great being who has not been ‘close to’ the consciousness of mankind for many centuries, but the time has come for this beautiful being and her energy to become part of us again.
Lady Vesta holds the Light or Flame of the Sacred Fire alive within her being. Through this divine act she enables us to access the Sacred Fire in a divine sense, that is, we are able to connect with this greater divine Light or Flame, and she also enables us to access our own individual core fire that lives within us, waiting to be ignited.
Lady Vesta is the divine consort of Ascended Master Lord Helios. Lady Vesta has not been close to our consciousness here on Earth for a long time, because we have not been ready. But her essence, and her energy is coming into general awareness more and more as we move into the new consciousness, the new awareness. This makes sense if we consider the future and the current growing need for liberation and equality of both sexes.

Lord Chiron is a powerful spiritual being who has walked the path before us, and is dedicated now to showing us the way. His way is a questing journey: always, a quest. His energy and his teaching are healing because they lift you to a higher level of awareness, an expanded consciousness, another level of bliss.
When we hear the word ‘Chiron’ we usually think of the Wounded Healer archetype, but this is a very limited interpretation of the Ascended Master Lord Chiron. He is much more than that, because Lord Chiron teaches people to be heroes; and, as we know, there are many types of hero… Lord Chiron teaches and directs humanity in MASTERY. Eventually, this teaching can lead a soul to becoming an ascended master.

As Lord of the First Ray (of God Consciousness), El Morya embodies the Will of God to Action. When El Morya works with you, and your own soul forces, he starts to create a Diamond Matrix within your heart chakra. All Ascended Masters and angels have this Diamond Matrix within their spiritual heart (so to speak). It is constantly being built upon, through the courage, aspirations, and willingness of the soul to allow the Will of God to manifest within it and through it, by surrendering to and trusting in the Higher guidance. Ultimately, it is the surrender of your personal will to the Higher or Divine Will, while yet maintaining your own individuality, that produces what we call ‘miracles'!
The Diamond Matrix, or Diamond Heart, is an energy centre within you that radiates streamers of pure light, and pure love. Not only does this Diamond Heart fill and nourish your own energy field, and your total being, but it also warms, comforts and heals all others who come within its reach. In a sense, El Morya ‘holds' the energy of this brilliant diamond heart for us , until we are able to realise it fully within ourselves. It is the slow growth of these beautiful spiritual energies within a person that creates an Ascended Master.
El Morya will help you to strengthen your will, and to encourage you to surrender to a higher spiritual force when necessary. El Morya will give you greater clarity about your spiritual purpose, and will also lovingly support you to put your PURPOSE INTO ACTION.

Source: http://www.crystalinks.com/ascendedmasters.htmlThe Great White Brotherhood
In some versions of the doctrine, the ascended masters, as a collegiate body, are the "Great White Brotherhood," white referring to advanced spirituality rather than race - very much like "Gandalf the White" after his victory over the Balrog in The Lord of the Rings. In fact, most early reports of the masters described them as racially Tibetan or Hindi, not Anglo. Belief in the Brotherhood and the masters is an essential part of the syncretistic teachings of these several groups. Various important spiritual leaders such as Jesus, the Prophet Muhammad, the Virgin Mary, and Kuan Yin the compassionate bodhisattva, take their seats alongside magical or alchemical personalities like the Count of St. Germain, and other mystic celebrities like Kuthumi, one of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky's claimed spiritual guides - all of these leaders have put aside any differences they might have had in their Earthly careers, and unite instead to improve the spiritual well-being of the human race.
Reincarnation is a notable feature of some groups' teachings about the ascended masters. For example, according to the Summit Lighthouse the ascended master Kuthumi was also reincarnate as a number of historically important people, including Pharaoh Thutmose III, the philosopher Pythagoras, Saint Francis of Assisi, Balthasar the Magus, and Shah Jahan. Several of the other ascended masters are said to have had equally distiguished careers in reincarnation.
One of the most interesting beliefs about ascension is the notion of "ascension bloodlines". According to the Gnostic tradition, ascension is said to happen only after several dedicated lifetimes that directly support the ascension process. If an individual ascends leaving daughters, the daughters supposedly become able to reproduce at will rather than going through the process of sex. The ascension process is said to transmit forward along the genetic line for seven generations, giving the females the ability to give birth through immaculate conception to offspring who will ascend. The priest class in various cultures were said to guard these bloodlines in order to ensure that all descendants would ascend. This belief is based on the many accounts in mythology and spiritual history of individuals born of virgin mothers (Jesus, Mithra, etc.) who then accomplish extraordinary social changes, preceding their ascension.
Belief/disbelief throughout history
The topic of ascension and ascended masters is one that probably will continue to spark controversy and disbelief, and can be a difficult subject to comprehend even for those who have spent years studying esoteric doctrines. Having been playfully described as something like getting "beamed up", as in the television series Star Trek, the idea of ascension has not reached widespread acceptance. Some relegate the subject matter to the realm of New Age myth and fantasy, while others maintain the process of ascension is as natural as human evolution.
Historically, for the past two thousand years, the concept of ascension seemed so outrageous and confrontational, especially within traditional, western, orthodox religious belief systems, that many people dismissed the idea immediately or have a very strong adverse reaction to it. The idea that all humans could conceivably do what Christ supposedly did is seen by many religious persons as presumptuous, if not blasphemous.
In the 21st century, the notion of ascension seems to attract individuals more interested in eastern religions, spirituality, metaphysics, or those simply looking for a deeper meaning to their existing beliefs and experiences.
One difficulty in discussing the idea of an ascended master is that there is no universally-accepted, definitive, scientific text which describes what the conditions are to become such a person, or how to verify the conditions. Even in the 21st century, most public sources, even books directly dealing with the topic, tend to describe various ascended masters, their activities, meetings with such people, etc., without giving us the requisite understanding of how we ourselves could undergo the process of ascension firsthand. With only anecdotal reports and no actual "how-to" manual, we are then left struggling with how to either retrofit this concept into our existing beliefs, how to shift our beliefs entirely, or simply reject the system altogether. Texts that claim to give a deeper understanding of ascension, including practical exercises, meditations, diet, etc., are often dismissed by mainstream audiences.
Beginning in the 1930s, a few books were published on this subject, the authors claiming to have had contact with Masters who encouraged the more pragmatic aspects of the Ascension process to be known. Prior to that, the practical knowledge is claimed to have been held in strict secrecy within Mystery schools, allegedly due to the pressures and intolerance of orthodox religious authorities. Even among many who believe themselves to be spiritual adepts or initiates, the concept of ascension has not been widely accepted or understood because of the radical nature of transformation that has been ascribed to it.
Books which purport to detail the developmental process Jesus went through in finding his own Inner Christ Self include The Urantia Book, published in 1955, and A Course In Miracles, suppposedly dictated by Christ Himself and published in 1976.
Examples of Ascended Masters The history of ascension predates Christianity, indeed extending back for thousands of years, yet the story of Jesus is one of the most widely known stories of ascension. In the Bible when Mary Magdalene wants to reach out and touch Christ at the tomb, he says, "Touch me not, for I have not yet ascended to my Father." This has led to the idea that the ascension process is apparently so delicate that even the touch of an ordinary human, who still holds the concepts of limitation and separation, is enough to hold the ascension process back. (This does not explain how Jesus was then able to sit down and have a fish dinner with his disciples.) It is generally thought that one does not have to die in order to ascend, but the fact that Jesus was said to have died, then resurrected, then ascended, has led some people to believe that this must be the case for everyone.
Other individuals with stories of ascension include
- Hercules, following the completion of his twelve labors, the Greek hero was raised to heaven and made a god by Zeus.
- Virgin Mary (Mother of Jesus); When Mary chose to ascend, one story says that she gathered up disciples around her to witness the event, and then she "consumed" herself, contrary to the Roman Catholic belief that Mary was simply "taken up into heaven". Another story has Mary dying in a normal fashion, and her body placed at her own request in a sealed tomb, which was opened and found empty three days later. Muhammad, the famous prophet of Islam is said to have ascended at the site of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem.
- El Morya, said to have been a Rajput prince, also incarnated as King Arthur and as Thomas More. Theosophists believe he was one of the masters who worked closely with Helena Blavatsky to found the original Theosophical Society.
- Mahatma Kuthumi, said to have been a Punjabi who attended Oxford University in 1850, may have authored the poem "Dream of Ravan" published in the Dublin University Magazine about 1854.
- Vishwanath, ascended master rumored to incarnate as individuals with psychic abilities (unconfirmed).
- Djwhal Khul, said to have been a Tibetan who started out with the unlikely name Gai Ben-Jamin. Believers tell the legend of his incarnation on Lemuria where he assisted in rescuing valuable knowledge before the sinking of that continent. He is said later to have transmitted this information to channeller Alice Bailey.
- St. Germain, also known as "The Master Rakozi" in the Alice A. Bailey books based on Theosophy, is believed by many New Age religious groups such as I Am and the Church Universal and Triumphant to have ascended after what was believed to be his final mortal incarnation as Sir Francis Bacon. These groups believe that St. Germain , a mysterious individual reputed to be a "magician" who flourished in France and was widely known among the aristocracy just before the revolution of 1789, was already an ascended master, which is believed to explain his reputed magical powers.
