Saint Germain's New Alchemical Formulas for Spiritual Success
Livingston Sanctuary of the Hearts
The Virtue of Persistence
David: The next HeartStream is titled “Persist On to Victory.” This was released to me privately at 2:40 in the morning on Tuesday, October 8, 2013.
“Persistence clears the way to a clear vision of victory. Every alchemist encounters difficulties on the road to the perfectionment of the heart and the attainment of God-success in the journey of life. Those who persist find within the required resolve and fortitude to drive forward no matter what the obstacle, delay tactic or diversionary illusion is that may appear before the initiate's view.
“To draw from within the fire of determination to reach the next step on the path requires an attitude that sets in motion assistance from Aspira and the angels of inspiration.”
David's commentary: Remember that we heard in the last couple of years a HeartStream from Aspira, a great master.
“These divine muses enter the scene of one's alchemical initiations by providing a sacred impetus that is literally beyond this world, for it originates in the heart of God. Even the greatest of avatars and wise men have verified that the X-factor of their victorious overcoming came from the intercessory powers of a source beyond their human or egoic level of beingness.
“Persistence is the fuel that feeds righteous desire, that burns within the heart to propel one to success in one's life lived to glorify God and magnify the Lord. Enabling divine forces through a willingness to bear one's burdens with understanding and to hold fast to one's truth with equipoise is the right of every joyous son and daughter of love. Forbearance [an aspect of patience] sets in motion alchemical miracle workers that provide the keys to every door and the means to outlast the outlandish elements of the not-self in one's inner work to fuse with the great Solar Self.
David's commentary: I see these miracle workers as angels, as ministering servants in nature, such as the elemental forces and devic forces. I believe that when we have patience, forbearance, and when we persist, this dynamic of accessing the miracle light of God is put in motion, because heaven sees and observes that we mean business, that we desire to persist to the end.
“One poignant moment on my own path may clarify how this divine virtue of persistence can make the difference between defeat or victory in the ascension. Long ago on Atlantis, during an age of enlightenment and great achievement, there arose a movement spawned by one who had turned from the path of light through the sinister trickery of a shadowy being. This one seemed to have devised a strategy of successive plots that brought into play a series of tragedies and setbacks for many initiates that were seemingly impossible to overcome through our normal modalities of spiritual work. One of those serving with me advised taking a path that would lead to a direct confrontation with the forces moving behind the scenes to stir up rebellion and acrimony.
“After much inner reflection, I sought a higher guidance and determined that only holding fast to a path of divine love and increasing the intensity and reach of our compassionate emanations would result a neutralizing and nullifying of the onslaughts of the dark ones. Although conflict continued in certain domains, the collective persistence of those working for the light resulted in the desired results of a peaceable and amicable resolution at that time.”
David's commentary: So this was a story from Saint Germain's time in Atlantis, which is interesting. It gives us pause to consider how we deal with situations in which we are seemingly attacked or feel what we call opposition. Do we instantaneously react and attempt to destroy that person or counteract the untruths that we feel are coming? Or do we take the higher road and realize it is an opportunity for us to come up higher and to be more mindful, to go deeper and to express love. I see the examples of Gandhi and Martin Luther King and others who took the high road of nonviolent resistance rather than engaging in a direct violent form of confrontation.
“Through a series of subsequent lifetimes, the same dark spirit arose to confront my work for the Brotherhood, point/counterpoint, and the inner record of this former experience allowed me to follow the same higher walk with God, persisting again and again over every machination to foil our strategies of light. Finally, in my last incarnation as Francis Bacon, before my ascension in the light, I put to rest this shadowy one through the same means that Jesus used in overcoming the tempter in the wilderness and during his final trial in the Garden of Gethsemane. Through the humble and complete form of surrender, born of a steely persistence in following the first commandment to love God with all my heart, mind, strength and soul,1 the tempter receded and was vanquished by the light of God. This particular shadowy being has never again been able to muster the energy to oppose the servitors of righteousness.
“Please be aware that we work with the powers of light through divine magic to bring holy love into play to overcome principalities of darkness working through those in high places on Earth. Our means are always sanctioned by the Spirit and do not allow us to stoop to the methodologies of those who twist the truth and tempt the less tempered ones with their illusory ways. Our alchemical victories are always born of our persistent willingness to walk through fire and to weather every storm through love.
“In a certain retreat of the Great White Brotherhood there are mementos, artistically crafted, to the unsung heroes of the ages whose persistence resulted in transformational miracles during certain key epochs of Earth's history. Witnessing the records of these experiences and seeing the interplay of light and darkness and the results of holding fast to the highest ideals of cosmic truth are inspiring to one and all whom we lead to this sanctuary of light and hall of records.
“Dearest ones, your victory is always set before you within a matrix of light which may be accessed through a persistent love of God. Following the star of your True Self, you realize your oneness as you walk and talk with higher mentors and advocates of holy wisdom. Be truthful. Be persistent. Be love.
“I AM Saint Germain, leading you by love to the source of pure light and beingness.”
David: I wrote a note after this HeartStream that said, “I saw the movie Gravity this night with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, an amazing example of persistence.” I believe it won more than one Academy Award.
Why is persistence one of the formulas for advanced alchemy? I would like to hear from you. Let's open up the microphones, and there can be sharing from both here and Mount Shasta. You may desire to answer that question through your own direct experience or share a story of persistence and how you feel that it relates to alchemy and co-creation.
Participant 1: What came to my mind is that just about every highly successful person that you ever hear of has said that they failed, they failed, they failed, they failed, and then they had this drive to keep on going. They just kept on going. They had persistence, and they advise other people to have persistence and not to lose their drive and their faith if they fail, because everybody fails.
David: Thank you.
Participant 2: Every project that I have been involved with requires persistence. I really think it has to do with bringing a thoughtform, a matrix and manifesting something according to that matrix. Every time you are persistent, you are reinforcing that thoughtform. There are other things that are going on. There are other things in the material plane. For instance, somebody else has a different idea. You are building a house or something and you have a plan, but then the builder has a little bit of a different plan than yours, or your neighbor doesn't want you to build as big a house, or whatever. And so their energies become part of the mix.
You have to maintain your persistence according to what you desire to precipitate. And sometimes others have good ideas, and then you change your mind and you change your plans a little. But it's persistence that brings it from the etheric realm to the physical realm. And you have to continually be persistent, continually attend to it until it is fully manifested and anchored and completely finished.
David: Great. And once it is and you walk in that door and everything works inside—the stove works, the shower works, the toilets work and the lights work—it's like, abracadabra, yeah!
Participant 2: That's right. And sometimes you think it's done and you still have to tweak it a little. But it's magnificent when you get it into form.
David: Does anybody else have a story of persistence?
Participant 3: I thought I heard in the actual HeartStream that victory is already held for us. It's already there. And then to tie in with what __________ said, it's like you're moving through the levels of the four lower bodies to access the victory that God already holds for us, or our sponsors or the miracle workers hold for us at the level of the etheric. So the persistence is the process whereby you're able to access it at the level of the etheric, to join with it, collaborate with it and continue persisting until you can actually bring it back into the physical as well.
David: Thank you. We're going to go to Shasta now.
Participant 4: …a little bit. Maybe we don't do as much as we want to do each day, but we move forward and we make some progress. So persistence, to me, is this divine virtue that we can't do on our own. We've got to ask for help and believe that we're going to get it. And when you're finally done, it's a collaborative process and you can't really claim that you did it all. I know I got help. [applause]
David: I'd like to say that for those of us here in Livingston, we did not hear all of __________'s sharing because the mic was not turned up locally there in Shasta and then broadcast through us. So we probably missed 90 percent of it. In order to have your sharing, __________, on the recording of this event, it would be nice if you took no more than three to five minutes to share what we didn't hear, which those locally heard, but we did not.
Participant 4: I was talking about finishing my doctoral dissertation and how I think it was a test in persistence. I was told it should take me five years when I first started the program, and it ended up taking me seven years. Things just continually came up, even though I had my plan. I had my approved concept paper. I had everything in place. Things continually came up, one thing after another—personally, professionally—to challenge that, as if saying, “Is this going to stop you? Is that going to stop you?” Numerous things came to make me think whether this was the divine will for me to finish this. I had to surrender that. I had to move forward with it, even though I didn't make the progress that I would have liked to have made on the schedule that I would have liked to have had.
It really seemed that as I moved forward, I had to keep up this persistence. I also had to believe that I would get the help that I needed, even when I, in my human self, couldn't change the circumstances and the situation to make the research and all the work come together. So that was difficult, and yet I persisted. I believed that I would get the help from the Divine Source to make it all happen and make it all come together, and it finally did.
I also mentioned that I talked to many people who have not finished their dissertations. It seems it is something that a lot of people struggle with. It is a divine virtue, this perseverance, and it's something that we have to ask for. We have to believe that we're going to get the help we need. After it's all finished, we know that we didn't do it all on our own and that it was a collaborative effort between ourselves and the spiritual powers that help us. I think that is what I said.
