The Ascended Master Saint Germain—Alchemist of the Soul

Ascended Master of Divine Alchemy

The soul of Saint Germain has played brilliant roles upon the stage of life for hundreds of thousands of years. Today Saint Germain is the avatar of the dawning Age of Aquarius. His forté is the recycling of all that binds and hinders the full expression of the soul into liberating light—an alchemy that anyone can learn. It is the alchemy of forgiveness. He is the Lord or the Seventh Ray, the violet ray that emanates freedom, alchemy, transmutation, justice and mercy.

Saint Germain has experienced a number of notable embodiments and a long history of striving in the service of man and God. Some of  these lifetimes included famous historical figures such as the prophet Samuel, Saint Joseph, Christopher Columbus, Roger Bacon, Francis Bacon, and Count Saint -Germain, who was known as the "Wonderman of Europe." Each lifetime built on Saint Germain’s mastery and preparation for his current role as the hierarch of the Golden-Crystal Age of Aquarius.1

The Prophet Samuel: Crowning the Biblical Kings

Samuel’s mother Hannah was the second wife of Elkanah. For many years, Hannah had no children. One year when Hannah and Elkanah went to the temple to make sacrifices and pray, Hannah begged God to allow her to have a child. To be barren in those days was a source of shame for women and was considered an indication that one was not favored by God.

A priest named Eli saw Hannah praying and realized her predicament . He blessed her and assured her that God had heard her prayers. A year later she gave birth to Samuel. And, as she had promised, brought Samuel to Eli as a young child to serve with him in the temple.

The prophet Eli’s time of transition grew near. So God spoke to young Samuel, calling upon him to be the next prophet of Israel. And Samuel accepted this holy work, travelling throughout Israel, urging the various tribes to work together and to cease worshiping idols.

It came about that the tribes desired a king to rule over them. Samuel was urged by them to appoint the one who would be their leader. God had already told Samuel that the results of the tribes desiring a king would be regretted, for their king would take their lands and goods and lead them into wars. They would know only oppression.

Upon hearing this message, the people turned a deaf ear to the prophet's warnings. Their choice was a man named Saul. Unfortunately, Saul lived up to God’s warning and there was much suffering in the land. In response, Samuel secretly anointed David as the true king of Israel. A conflict between Saul and David dominated the remainder of Samuel’s life. Samuel's anointing of David began the Biblical monarchy that formed the lineage of Jesus Christ.

Saint Joseph, Protector of the Christ

In addition to what is commonly known about Saint Joseph from New Testament accounts, information in apocryphal writings and more recent revelations fill in some details. For instance, Joseph and Mary not only bore the Savior Jesus but six other children, both male and female. In contrast to traditional portrayals, Joseph was not merely a carpenter but an artisan in stoneworking and an adept in the spirtual arts. the family lived within a devout community, the Essenes, whose beliefs included  the oneness of all life, that God dwelt within each soul and in his creation, and that striving and purity of motive were the way to God's heart.

Joseph, like Mary and Jesus, communed with the angels. It was Joseph’s faith in his own prophetic dreams that proved to be  key to his role as guardian of this most holy family. From the outset of the coming together of Mary and Joseph, angels had intervened. It was an angel that appeared to Joseph in a dream to reassure him that he should marry Mary although she was many years younger than he. After the birth of Jesus, an angel appeared to warn Joseph that Herod sought the life of the newborn. The family escaped  to safety--the town of Galilee, where Jesus grew to adulthood and gloried in his life's mission.  Joseph made his transition before Jesus entered into the fullness of his teaching and healing ministry. But Joseph had fulfilled his inner vow to protect Mary and to nurture and instruct the Christ in Jesus.

Roger Bacon, Scholar and Scientist

Roger Bacon was born in Somerset, England in 1214. Bacon pursued a life as a scholar and was engaged in academic and theological studies for decades. He became a professor at Oxford, specializing in philosophy. Eventually he became a friar in the Franciscan Order, but this prevented him from holding a teaching post. His activities were further restricted by a Franciscan statute in 1260 forbidding friars from publishing books or pamphlets without specific approval.

Bacon’s friendship with Cardinal Guy le Gros de Foulques, who became Pope Clement IV, proved to be highly fortuitous. The new Pope issued a mandate ordering Bacon to write to him concerning the place of philosophy within theology. As a result, Bacon sent the Pope his Opus Majus, which presented his views on the way philosophy and science could be incorporated into theology. Roger Bacon also wrote other works on alchemy and astrology.

During his prolific lifetime,  Bacon performed many scientific experiments and documented his work for posterity. These experiments are viewed as the first instances of true experimental science, several hundred years before the official rise of science in the West. 

Christopher Columbus, Discoverer of the New World

Christopher Columbus was born in 1451 in Genoa, Italy. At the age of twenty-two, he began an apprenticeship as business agent for three important families— the Centurione, Di Negro and Spinola families of Genoa. The countries of Europe had been trading with China and India over land, but with the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453, this route became treacherous. In response to this, Christopher Columbus with his brother Bartolomeo developed a plan to travel to the Indies by sailing directly west across the Atlantic.

After continually lobbying at the Spanish court for two years, Columbus finally made headway with Queen Isabella of Castille in 1492. Columbus departed from Palos de la Frontera with three ships—the Santa María, the Pinta and the Niña. Columbus' vision that there was a westward route over the Atlantic Ocean to the Indies, if realized, would allow Spain, in dire need of funds, to enter the profitable spice trade. In hindsight we realize that Columbus' discovery set the stage for the building of a new nation, founded on the principles of equality and religious freedom.

Francis Bacon—To Discover Truth, Serve My Country and Serve My Church

Francis Bacon was born on January 22, 1561. Biographers believe that Bacon was educated at home in his early years because of his ill health.  At  twelve he entered Trinity College, Cambridge, and lived there for three years with his older brother Anthony. Francis Bacon studied mostly Latin and the medieval curriculum common at the time.

For the next three years, Francis traveled extensively, visiting Blois, Poitiers, Tours, Italy, and Spain. His three goals were to discover truth, to serve his country, and to serve his church. Under the reign of James I, Francis Bacon translated the King James version of the Bible. An increasing number of scholars also believe that he was secretly working with a group of some of England’s best poets and writers, creating the plays now credited to William Shakespeare. Perhaps the most accepted and celebrated of Bacon’s own literary works is The New Atlantis.

Francis Bacon’s works popularized the inductive method of scientific inquiry. His demand for a planned procedure of investigation established the approach to scientific research still in use today. Knighted in 1603, he was given the title of Baron in 1618 and Viscount in 1621. He is recognized as one of England’s greatest philosophers, statesmen, scientists and authors.

The Wonderman of Europe

After he had already made his ascension, Saint Germain received an unusual dispensation. The Lords of Karma allowed him to return to Earth. As the Count Saint-Germain of the House of Rakoczy, he attempted to prevent the French Revolution and to form a United States of Europe. In befriending European royalty, he hoped to guide them into positive alliances, creating a United States of Europe. But his guidance and warnings failed.

He left no stone unturned to capture the attention of those in power—removing flaws from their diamonds, creating verse and writing it with both hands at the same time, entertaining them with his vast musical talent, wit and humor and his ability to speak with expertise on any subject. They enjoyed the show, but they dismissed his prophetic words. Count Saint-Germain's presence at court throughout this lengthy period—over one hundred years—is recorded in the diaries and correspondences of several monarchs and several members of their courts.

Reluctance as a Block to Alchemy

Question #3:  Beloved Saint Germain, I have sometimes held back from asking for something because I am concerned that I will get it. Can you comment on this sense of reluctance in utilizing alchemy?

David:  What was the fear that resulted in the reluctance? The Master Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov says that sometimes if we are aiming for something and our goal is just to get this thing, once we get it, then what? We’ve got it and then there’s no more striving because we got the thing. It’s the process of going for our goal that is all-important. It’s the energy of love we put into the effort that is crucial.

            So if you ask for something and then you receive it, I see this as indicative of the fact that whatever you asked for was for the purpose of world service, planetary enlightenment or assistance. Being bodhisattvas, we are here for all life. Now, if you ask for something that you know you don’t really require, maybe the fear is that when you get it you’ll be utilizing it for selfish reasons. You have to assess for yourself why there is this reluctance. Maybe the reluctance is there because you don’t really require what you are calling forth.

            There can also be the fear of success. This is actually one of the biggest fears that we all have, that we know we are great spiritual beings and that once we fully clothe ourselves in light and become a Christed one, a Buddhic one, then what? Will we be criticized by people because we have this great light? Will we be crucified like Jesus was? Will we be thrown overboard by our loved ones? Will we be abandoned by those who don’t understand us?

            I think we have all experienced a certain level of abandonment by those who do not understand who we are as spiritual beings. It’s a natural thing to desire affection, encouragement, love, cherishment and to be valued and validated. It’s part of our inner core to desire to be loved and appreciated. As well as loving other people, we desire to be loved, and there’s nothing wrong with this inner desire. We just have to realize that this desire originates from God and that when we are loving and we love others and when we appreciate others and they appreciate us, it should always be for the purpose of validating the God within each other rather than just the human personality.

            If you seem to have a reluctance to utilize alchemy, just observe your motives, because the motive itself will give you the key as to whether alchemy in that situation is really the highest form of divine science to be utilized. If there’s a pause in your consciousness that results in this reluctance, then something, some voice is telling you to not go forward or not do it. You have to determine if that voice is God or if that voice is the dweller on the threshold preventing you from moving forward in your alchemy. And you and only you will know, by discernment and the discernment of the Holy Spirit, whether that voice is really God within you sharing that reluctance or whether it’s something else. So that’s the crux in this situation, discernment.

            By having divine fellowship with the Holy Spirit, you will develop a greater ease in discerning, moment by moment, what the highest course for you is in any given situation. The more time you put in with the Holy Spirit, the more time you spend in communion with the Holy Spirit, the greater the ease with which you will know. And then these states of reluctance will fall away and you will simply move in the winds and the coursing of the Holy Spirit’s inspiration to you, and you’ll follow the lead of the Holy Spirit.

If you have a sense of reluctance, get to know the Holy Spirit, befriend the Maha Chohan, the representative of the Holy Spirit; and that Holy Spirit will provide all that you require all the time, in terms of guidance, support, love, fellowship and the deep encouragement to continue on with your path of light. We all require encouragement. In community we get it from each other, fortunately, because we love one another and we love to get to know each other and find out more about each other so we can be more encouraging when difficult or trying situations arise.

            The Master is showing me that sometimes people are reluctant to ask for prayers when they’ve had crises, accidents, or whatever, because they feel a little bit embarrassed that they’ve had this accident, this problem, this situation. After all, they’re a lightbearer and they shouldn’t go through this. Please, let’s all realize we’re here for one another. We have all been in situations where we’ve made a mistake, we’ve regretted something we’ve done—we’ve put ourselves in a position of falling or hurting ourselves or chopping off something, or whatever it is, right? We have to bare our souls to one another because we are a part of community. When we can get past the sense of embarrassment and just appreciate the love of our brothers and sisters and feel it, especially through our prayers for one another, then it’s okay to say, “Yeah, I realize I kind of blew it here. I made choices and blah blah blah.”

Yet I love to receive your prayer requests and I love for others to receive them. It builds community. It builds the union of our hearts and souls and spirits when we can be there for one another energetically. So please don’t feel reluctant to ask for prayers, because what greater gift do we have for one another than to pray for one another, to be there and to encourage one another and to send our love and energy? It’s really important. And the next day you’ll be there for someone else. One day people are there for you, and then when you’re healthy, hale and hearty and whole, you can be there for someone else who’s going through his or her challenge. And then one day someone passes on and ascends, and we are all jubilant.

            We’ve had how many people ascend through this activity already? We could name them. There have probably been close to a dozen that we know of who have ascended since The Hearts Center activity began. It’s amazing, it’s wonderful. We are a growing, vibrant, spirit-charged community of light. And Saint Germain and the Maha Chohan are encouraging us to get rid of this reluctance, which is born of anxiety and fear, and move forward as intrepid, determined lovers of one another and of God within all life. And through that we conquer, we are victorious, we win.
