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.

Beloved Saint Germain Discourse

Saint Germain's New Alchemical Formulas for Spiritual Success
Livingston Sanctuary of the Heart
Livingston, Montana

            This was released on Friday, October 11, at 1:15 in the morning. Boy, I guess I was getting up earlier. The title of this is “Reflect on the Divine Within.”

Alchemical Formula #5

Reflect on the Divine Within

“To ascend to the highest heights of God-consciousness, to access one's Solar awareness, it is essential to first fathom from within the innermost regions of one's being the divine currents of light and love. For the alchemist, maintaining a practice of reflecting on the Divine within allows him to further the cause of planetary freedom within the greater laboratory of the world at large. Echoing the sentiments of godliness through mindfulness and heart-centeredness, the initiate accepts each holy virtue as already blossoming within, as fully resident and radiantly manifesting within the soul.

“For a time, it is incumbent upon disciples to work primarily in the mode of transmutation, for the purging fires of the Holy Spirit are invoked and sustained within the aura to burn up the previously accepted shadowy substances resulting from egoic living. In the later stages of this process, a simultaneous practice of embracing every divine quality and every nuance of holiness is required. Where unreality has been consumed by love's fire, a more subtle flame now instills and nurtures a new sense of one's blessed oneness with the Source. Within the silence of soulfulness, accessed through inner stillness, the final apotheosis occurs.

 “Many of you who incarnated in the West and were brought up in various Christian traditions, devoid of the teaching that you are already one with God, have left orthodoxy to investigate the mystical traditions of both East and West. For you have felt the new energies of Spirit moving within, goading you toward full Self-realization. You could no longer accept the rationale of separation and the catechisms of sin, hell and damnation, themselves damnable false teachings of a now archaic mind-set. To the initiate, it is counterintuitive that the Lord Jesus himself would have condoned the fundamentalist view that sets him apart from the rest of humanity as a spiritual narcissist, the only son of God.

“The advanced alchemist derives his own audacity to also claim his sonship to the Divine from Genesis, which seems to be overlooked by the Bible thumpers of this Kali Yuga. Hold to the high ideal of your divinity, already Self-realized within the spirit-spark of the One resident within your heart. Fan this flame daily through meditation upon the Sun and the creative fires of Spirit moving through your being as you breathe in the essences of truth and freedom from the Great Alchemist. Each self-reflection session becomes an anointing and a blessing to yourself as well as to all those with whom you interact within your spirited life. The joy of the Lord shines within as you model the Renaissance man or woman, bold in declaring your divinity while humble in the gnosis of this oneness.

“I suggest using sacred geometric shapes and symbols while reflecting on your union with the Creator, for this affords an opportunity for the crystallization of light to occur in patterns of perfection and forms of your flowering Buddhahood. During your study of this series, focus on embracing the dynamism of the star tetrahedron within your third eye, seeing its facets and angles reflecting the faculties of perfect vision for crystal clarity in your inner and outer sight.”

 We'll pause here to look on the screen and see the image of the star tetrahedron. Drink it in and let it make its mark and etch its form within your third eye and within your heart and soul.

“Keep a journal, and record the insights that come to you during these sessions. You may be amazed at the wisdom God has already planted within your inner garden of delight. Now also imagine and feel my Presence in your midst. For I will come tangibly to the willing, to the childlike virtuous ones who prefer this time of sacred communion to the many outer distractions of twenty-first-century life. I will work with your Oversoul to inculcate within a new sense of buoyancy, a new feeling of levity in divine love. I am instilling conceptions and ideations of your inner beauty and glory, displacing what may yet remain as projections from others or your not-self within your subconscious mind. Angels of Lord Zadkiel and Holy Amethyst will also help in this alchemical work of the etherealization of your being in pure light.

“Ever yours in the resurrection of the Divine image within, I AM Saint Germain.”

David:  I would like to go back now and focus on some of the elements of this HeartStream. And, of course, if you have any questions regarding it or insights that were meaningful to you, feel free to chat with us or simply raise your hand here to share.

            Again, this is titled “Reflect on the Divine Within.” I think that word reflect has a double meaning, meaning to be mindful and to enter into that mindful state of silence so that you can conceptualize, think and feel together. And then by reflecting on the Divine within, you're always in the mode of the expression or proactive aspect of reflecting, which is to mirror God's light and love through your life.

Again, he says, “To ascend to the highest heights of God-consciousness, to access one's Solar awareness, it is essential to first fathom from within the innermost regions of one's being the divine currents of light and love.” Pretty simple to understand, I believe. “For the alchemist, maintaining a practice of reflecting on the Divine within allows him to further the cause of planetary freedom.” The Master asks us, why would the alchemist's maintaining of this practice of reflecting on the Divine within also further the cause of planetary freedom? What is it that engages a greater activity on behalf of mankind when we are working within ourselves? Anybody?

Participant:  In my understanding, in order to reflect the Divine within it is necessary to still your aura and be that reflecting light of the causal body, the light that is so near to you. And since you are connected, as we were taught yesterday, by the flower of life, by stilling your aura you can connect with all the other auras on the planet and create greater stillness and freedom in their auras as well.

David:  Thank you. Great.

Participant:  I think because everyone is connected, everything that we do, even if it's an inner initiation that we pass, raises everyone because we're all one.

David:  Great. When we come to those points of a major shift within our being, because of the power of our auric fields, because of all the spiritual work we've done in this and past lives, and especially because we have engaged in the dynamic decrees, the fiats and the moving of energy through our beings in an accelerated way, it does count and is maximized on behalf of others. We know we have the power of Lord Maitreya's ten thousand-times-ten thousand, that our decrees are multiplied by that factor. So because many of us have been decreeing for years, sometimes decades—in my case forty years, which is true for many of you too—the momentum is there. And that momentum—born of consistency, constancy and righteousness, which is the right use of God's energies flowing through us—is magnified on behalf of those whom we serve, because when we invoke the light, we become a sun center and the negativity of the world is drawn into our heart chakras for transmutation. We set up that dynamic.

            You can't go a day without doing your spiritual work, because you feel heavy if you do. You know that feeling. I think all of you have experienced that. So you have to keep up the momentum, and once that momentum is established and maintained, you become like a divine juggernaut rolling down the hill. In this case, you're going up, of course, and that momentum counts in your relationship with all life on Earth. Some of you can literally hold the balance for hundreds and thousands of souls on the Earth through the momentum that you've outpictured in your causal body and in your saintliness. We've been told that some of us have been saints in past lives, and we bring that momentum of our spiritual work into play in the present moment and then it is magnified. Saint Germain says that there are actually angels of magnification.

 So this word reflect is important because the reflection through the mirror of our consciousness does allow for a certain magnification of light. It's like focusing many mirrors toward one point and then that one point gets the real fire of the solar energy. You may have seen these types of systems set up, for instance, in the desert, where they can literally focus a lot of solar energy in one point. And, of course, the masters do this in our sessions. They take the energies of all of our collective frequencies and focalize them toward the purpose of that session. So this magnification factor is really important, and it's something that I think we'll discover more when we move into our ascended mastership and we can see what has actually been occurring through the power of decrees, the science of the spoken word and our collective consciousness in these sessions.

            The Master says that for a time we're focusing more on the transmutation of our unreality, things that we've allowed to remain within our subconscious, the shadowy substances from egoic living. And then later there is the process of a simultaneous embracing of every divine quality. Those are going on concurrently and we do require both. You can't always be only in the mode of transmutation, because what happens when you transmute? Well, that substance that's transmuted accrues to your causal body and you utilize it for God-good, and it becomes virtuous energy for you to have and use in your alchemies. It's like the substance that we talked about before, the fuel that feeds the fire in the combustion.

At a certain point, and this is augmenting what he shared here, the transmutation fans out to the whole world and becomes a blessing to all mankind rather than just to you. The transmutation becomes planetary transmutation. It moves into a level of being on a cosmic scale, and then you really have the fire flowing through you to the point that you cannot turn against that light. Otherwise you would be consumed because of the momentum that you've established.

Mother shared a few times that when people who have been on the path for a certain amount of time suddenly leave it, it's like they turn inside out and all their darkness comes out. You have to stay on the path. Once you've put your foot on the path, you cannot turn against the light. It's antithetical to the way of the Great White Brotherhood. So keeping on keeping on is important.

            Saint Germain uses the word apotheosis at the end of the second paragraph. In the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., there is a fantastic artist's rendition called the Apotheosis of Washington, in which George Washington is portrayed as a Christly figure. An apotheosis is when you become God, fully godly or fully Self-realized in your Godhood. You are literally transformed or changed into a God. Theos, of course, means God in Greek. We can read the definition of apotheosis from a dictionary or Wikipedia a little later or if you can find it right now, we'll wait, to give you the exact definition.

Boyd:  Wikipedia defines it as “the glorification of a subject to divine level. The term has meanings in theology, where it refers to a belief, and in art, where it refers to a genre.”

David:  When we went to Winnipeg during our summer conference we visited that wonderful architectural wonder. What was the building—the capitol building in Winnipeg? It was very consciously built by many Masons and designed with amazing symbols and keys within those symbols. The guide that took us on that tour told us about the Apotheosis, because I think that image was also in the rotunda of that capitol dome, which we could see right above us.

           Saint Germain says that many of us who incarnated in the West were brought up in various Christian traditions. I think we've all moved past that sense of sin, right? We wouldn't be here if we had fully embraced the idea that we either go to heaven or hell forever. It's a false teaching, just totally nonsensical. It never made sense to me as a child that God, in God's infinite wisdom, mercy and love, would condemn one of his creations for all eternity to the fire of hell. It's a damnable false teaching, as Saint Germain says here. Jesus never claimed to be the only son of God. How could he? True sons of God know that there are others who go before them who are their mentors in Spirit and that there will be some who come after them. Jesus himself said, “Greater works than these shall he do because I go unto my Father.”1 And in the New Testament it also says, “Now are we the sons of God.”2 Christianity today has become, unfortunately, not what Jesus desired it to be.

            “Hold to the high ideal of your divinity, already Self-realized within the spirit-spark of the One resident within your heart.” I believe this is one of the most difficult things for the humble initiates that we are to fully embrace. It's daunting to feel that we are already divine, fully embodied in this divinity, because we know of our human imperfections, our seeming human limitations, our aches and pains as we grow older, or whatever. To maintain that state of feeling our divinity and knowing that we are already Self-realized, and to access our Buddhahood, our divine nature, is a practice that is a lifelong learning experience. It can only mastered by a series of practices whereby we refine the aspects of our own awareness of who God is within us to the point that we can embrace that godliness in humility without being narcissistic, without being too demonstrative.

            Many of us, by virtue of our true humility, would rather highlight the divine light shining within others because we have grown up seeking to be last or unheralded. We don't desire the limelight; we don't desire human glory. So to actually live in that glory and to learn how to be expressive of the God Self fully in our being is a craft, an art and a science that is imperative that we as true sons and daughters of God reach into to understand and to model for others, because we are the avant-garde for this age in many respects, and what we master now is important on behalf of those who are coming after us.

             “The joy of the Lord shines within as you model the Renaissance man or woman, bold in declaring your divinity while humble in the gnosis of this oneness.” It's the perfect balance; it's the perfect Tai Chi—being bold and humble simultaneously. This is when the Master suggests using the sacred geometric shape, the symbol of the star tetrahedron. If you have previously meditated on this image and gained some insights into how important it is as a symbol of who we are, feel free to share.

            We have been selling a lapis lazuli version, I believe, of the star tetrahedron in our store and I hope we can get more. We had green ones too. So this is the only one we have left, right? And how much is it?

Participant:  Not very much.

David:  They're less than twenty dollars.

Participant:  Yes, much less than twenty dollars.

David:  Less than fifteen?

Participant:  Six, I think.

David:  Less than ten! That's amazing. Somebody said fourteen. Anyway, let's get more of these because now that we've heard this HeartStream, let's all meditate on this image. There are a lot of triangles.

Participant:  It's also known as a merkabah, and there's a huge amount of information on the symbology.

Participant:  I looked it up on Wikipedia last night. And all the runes came out of it.

David:  You were researching last night?

Participant: Yeah, I was. Whole alphabets came out of the merkabah. You know about the Jewish sephirot? They're all in there.

David:  And when you saw that image, it looked very much like the sephirot, the symbol in Cabbalah?

Participant:  They do one in 3-D, where they computer-impose over it and they get the orbit of Venus out of it somehow, around the Earth, and the five-pointed stars.

David:  Venus doesn't make a circuitous route exactly like we do. It's different.

Participant:  I think it's also supposed to represent perfected man.

David:  Right. __________ says “perfected man” and woman—Man, with a capital M, as Anastasia says, which means man and woman.

Participant:  It's a perfect balance of Alpha and Omega in unity, not duality, for me anyway. That's what I see.

David:  Great. Years ago Saint Germain gave us the symbol of the “as Above, so below” interlaced triangles. This is a multidimensional interlaced triangle, not just 2-D. It's really 3-D. And I'm feeling as I'm holding it access into a higher portal of beingness. Just by holding it to my heart, holding it in my palm—you can hold it to your third eye—I feel an activation of my chakras. What I'm seeing from Saint Germain is that it includes the essence of all of the chakras.

            The emerald-colored one that we have, what gemstone is that made out of? Jade?

Participant:  Not jade. I can look in the store real quick.

David:  In any case, that one would be good for healing. This one would be especially good for the thymus area and also for projects. You can have it sitting on your desk and meditate on it as you're doing alchemy and see what comes as inspiration directly from the masters.

            Are there any sharings online, Boyd, before we move on and have a song?

Boyd:  __________ says the merkabah is your spiritual light body. You activate it through pranic breathing in a certain sequence. It pops out of your heart, and you as a being are enclosed in this star. You are this star and you can travel through systems of worlds through it.

David:  Absolutely. It is the shape, if you would, of what used to be called the deathless Solar body, which is the eternal Solar body that we weave over lifetimes of spiritual work. And when you reach a certain point of the transfiguration, Saint Germain is saying, that is when the star tetrahedron really takes hold of you and you live within your merkabah and you use that merkabah as a vehicle in meditation to travel, to basically bilocate, if you desire and if it's required for your work. You can visit other planets, as Anastasia talked about in the Ringing Cedars books. You can go to any place or time through this dimensionless portal that the merkabah accesses, because it is a divine symbol and in its geometric matrix it facilitates time travel, space travel. So for you scientists and Star Trekkies, it's a pretty cool thing to have in your tool kit.
