Saint Germain's New Alchemical Formulas for Spiritual Success
Livingston Sanctuary of the Heart
Enjoy Your Presence in the Present
Alchemical Enterprises Are Birthed with a Thrust, Mature in Truth,
and Are Complete as a Trust for Future Generations
Key Components in Creative Work That Benefits All Life
David: This HeartStream by Saint Germain is titled “Enjoy Your Presence in the Present.” It was dictated on October 15, 2013, at 4:32 am.
A reverential and joyful attitude toward and reliance upon your Divine Presence is essential in accessing alchemy's powerful forces for positive change. Enjoy your Presence in the present moment of your life. Avoid thinking or feeling that your desired results, like God, are outside of you. Gently bring them to you by your focused attention. Graciously accept them as already fulfilled and a natural reality and blessing to you in your life.
Continuously dwelling on not yet having your alchemical desires or goals manifest empowers this conception by your thought. Showing conscious appreciation and offering gratitude for what one already has sets in motion the love vibration and heart-centered frequencies essential for the precipitation of every good and perfect gift.1 Enjoying the spiritual fruits that your Divine Self has already bequeathed to you on your Tree of Life allows more to grow upon its branches.
Praising God for and counting your many blessings, even amidst your challenges, highlights them instead of that which at times you have given power to that is less than perfect and whole within. There is no greater moment than Now. There is no more opportune time to act and to be than the present. Beingness without the fruit of action is quiescent passivity, which leads to lack. Likewise, work without attention upon your Presence in the background of your consciousness often leads to despair. Beingness brought into your active lives energizes your dharma with your Source's effulgent light-qualities and the mystical elements beyond thought that allow heaven's greatest gifts to materialize for your conscious, loving work.
Every moment of your investment in your spiritual path is a seeding of the eternal within the ephemeral and brings more of heaven to earth. The optimization of the resources you already have stirs the ethers and causes divine muses to open their fresh cornucopias to you. Every grace is available so long as you prove to heaven that you will use it righteously once you acquire it. In fact, it is latent within already and simply requires the sunshine of your heart to catalyze it into action in your conscious life.
Every poet, composer and artist strives to be a creator. When one works with the Divine One, co-creation results in impeccable and radiant expressions worthy of approbation. Creating without the light of God flowing through you—heart, mind and soul—results in adding to the temporal landscape of maya and illusion. The advanced alchemist as a co-creator always ascends to the invisible mentor, who lovingly guides his collaborative work with alacrity and maintains a circle of sanctity around its manifestation.
It is better to precipitate a single crystal flower of beauty born of love than a garden grotesque due to erratic and imperfect thoughts and feelings. Even as the Elohim witnessed their creation and proclaimed it as good, so the advanced alchemist may lovingly dote upon what the Source has inspired upon and within him so long as the glory is given to God and honor bestowed as recognition for its true origin. If the alchemist regresses into an awareness of me and mine rather than thee and thine, the created work will begin to self-destruct. The sublime retains its essence through our loving affection of Providence and our reverent attitude that allows us to maintain our oneness as co-creators.
Our alchemical enterprises are birthed with a thrust, mature in truth, and are complete as a trust that provides future generations to be served from the fruits of our divine labors. Businesses that serve a greater community of hearts and entrepreneurs who tithe in a multitude of ways expand because they are following the cosmic laws of flow—give and receive, receive and give, give and receive.
Cooperatives that compensate employees well, based on the golden-rule principles of gracious giving, are the model enterprises of the future which are ready for co-creation now. What one enjoys, all may enjoy when harmony prevails and ethical standards are lived and modeled by true servant leadership, which follows the example of the Good Shepherd. A new eraof civility is won by a society based on high morality, created on the foundation of an enlightened citizenry that adheres to the cosmic laws of divine alchemy.
The Holy City is expanding even now through the work of the ascending ones who have mastered the science of love through mindful and heart-centered lives. May your alchemical self-discoveries co-create a new world of beauty and grace.
I AM Sanctus Germanus
David: This sentence bears repeating: “A new era of civility is won by a society based on high morality, created on the foundation of an enlightened citizenry which adheres to the cosmic laws of divine alchemy.” Perhaps this statement could be a banner somewhere within our book on advanced alchemy or maybe a signature piece of advertising and marketing.
The master will now ask you some questions and we will have darshan.
Saint Germain: What have been the key components for you in following through in any work to its conclusion, its flowering, its glorification on behalf of humanity?
David: Anyone can share. What have been some of the key markers, the key components of your creative work that have resulted in the fruition of it, the conclusion of it in a victorious way, so that it can be a blessing to humanity? That's another way of saying it. In other words, it's not just something that has benefited you alone, it's something that has benefited all life.
Participant: I start by making a commitment that is very short: “I will.” Before I say that, I already feel a passion and a desire. I consciously capture that desire and passion before I say “I will,” because after I say “I will” the doubting thoughts usually come around. So then I go consciously back to that capture to enfire that desire and that passion again. It keeps me going. When I say “I will,” I will, so I keep going and keep going. And I do have the faith that it will come to fruition. Usually I capture the energy field of the outcome of a project. Sometimes I have no clue what the energy field looks like, and yet I know how it feels, and that is what I keep in my vision and in my mind until I reach that point. And I am determined that I will finish this. That, in short, is the process from A to Z.
David: Thank you. There is a lot that happens in that process of all the steps and stages. You have captured two absolutely key components: “I will,” making the vow, the statement to the universe. And then being diligent enough to keep on keeping on even when you have some doubts. You also mentioned faith, which I see as one of your highest virtues. You have the faith coupled with the will and the drive, the determination, to see things through to the end. In the second alchemical formula, Persistence, or Persist On, we could have said perseverance and determination, too. They are a part of it.
You also mentioned holding the energy field of the conclusion of the project, and that even if you didn't know what it looks like, you could feel it. That is the energy field of it. Field and feel are almost the same word. We have to feel the energy field and then we field it through our work and it becomes active. Wonderful. Thank you.
Participant: In my work in graphics, I begin most projects by meeting with somebody and deciding what the project is going to be. I head into the project feeling that this is going to be really great. And even though I have done a hundred or a thousand of these projects before, fifty things will happen that were not part of the plan. It's not as if I've never been through it before, and yet I don't think at all about problems that could arise.
I laugh at myself and think my middle name should have been Pollyanna, because I go through every project thinking that it will be great even though most of the time it really isn't that great when I'm in the middle of it. I just keep going, keep persisting, and I work through it to the end keeping a positive attitude and holding the immaculate concept for the project. And eventually it does work out. I think some sort of higher forgetfulness comes upon me, because I don't ever sit around thinking about all that could go wrong or recalling that the last time I did something similar five things went wrong. I just let those go past me and I focus on the positive.
David: Thank you. Focus on the positive. That is a key.
Participant: According to numerology, there are three letters that indicate persistence, determination and completion—d, m and v. Your name, David, has three of those letters, two d's and one v. I think we have all developed those qualities in past lives and brought them with us into this life and that most people who have those letters in their names will be persistent and will be determined and will finish whatever they start.
David: The letters d, m and v. That's according to numerology and I think there is validity there. We can all develop those qualities, too. I am glad my wife has the m in her name, because I don't have an m in mine.
Participant: My formula is to first of all define exactly what it is I'm doing. Especially if I am involved in a project with other people, if I don't do that carefully I might find that not all the people that are involved mentally agree on what we are doing. So, it takes being careful about what it is that I or the team is building or co-creating. Then I carefully articulate and define what are the specific features or things that this thing will accomplish. If it's a group project, the group does the articulating and defining. If I don't have agreement within the group, the project is not going to feel right and it will take a long time to complete.
After that it is a matter of finding some combination of time, people, effort, resources and money to build it and agree on that. Then the different people do their parts if it's a group project. We have to have regular meetings and make sure people are meeting their agreements, their commitments. And if they're not, I or the group has to find another way to get their part done and keep the whole project on time. Eventually, we'll have something that is close, and then we test and try and fine tune it until it meets all of the criteria that we defined at the beginning. I don't only do this with IT projects, I do it with everything. It works. In the beginning I used to write it all down. Now it is so ingrained that I just do it automatically.
This formula works whether one person or many people are involved. It works with a hundred people if you have a big project. It is a formula that keeps the project all together and on time and within budget and the results will meet the criteria you set. And generally you will get something that is very lasting and that you can be very satisfied with for a long, long time.
David: Even if you are doing a personal alchemy and no other human knows about it, you are collaborating with higher beings as those other team members, the muses, the spirits of heaven that are supporting your work. When you meditate you can have that collaboration going on, on the inner, and it filters into your outer consciousness.
The same dynamic applies whether you are doing a project with a group or by yourself. As we heard in one of the first HeartStreams, the muses, the divine spirits are the ones who help us. Nothing that we do on Earth can we really do by ourselves. “Of myself, I can do nothing. It is the Father in me that doeth the work.”2
Thank you for sharing that. As you were talking I was seeing these spirits, these supporting, sponsoring and devic beings, and I was sensing it was a collaborative teamwork. And they are saying that this works for everything.
Participant: It might look to human eyes as if just one person is doing this, but it is always feels like teamwork to me. Another thing is that over the years I have gotten to where I can peer at and examine an etheric model of whatever this thing is well before it is in the physical. You can develop this ability. You can actually make your creation run and you can see where it doesn't work right yet. Then you can make tweaks and adjustments before you invest money and other resources into it.
Participant: Like the lake we were seeing on the video, stillness allows the perfect reflection of the mountains, trees, et cetera. We must always be in stillness, inner peace and harmony to reflect our divinity.
David: Wonderful: Reflecting our divinity. Thank you. I love that image of Jenny Lake in front of the Tetons.
Participant: The key components for me are inspiration from on high, knowing the outcome will serve God and the masters and benefit humanity both now and in the long term, and feeling the release of love throughout the process with those with whom I work.
David: You captured what Saint Germain said in the HeartStream. He consecrated it to humanity. I love what you said about love moving through the whole process. I would say love and joy—joy keeps the love flowing. Thank you.
Participant: When I am doing any kind of creative work, like a paper or a presentation or anything that I am assigned to do or have been asked to speak about, I first start with an inspired idea and I get an image of that. I am big on images and visualizations. After I have the image, I immerse myself in the topic by getting into what has already been released or published or what I know about it. I do some research. I also start listening for inspiration and intuition, going within, meditating on it, getting an idea and listening to that inner voice that says “check out this, hear this guy, read this book.” I will pick up words and phrases that go along with the topic that I am going to be working on.
And all the while, through this process, I am visualizing and seeing different things and I am hearing it and I am feeling it in my solar plexus. Intuition is a big, big part of the process. The project takes on a life of its own. It changes from my first concept to adding all the other things in. Finally, I add my own experience, my own heart flame, and I personalize it. I make it personal to me to illustrate the concepts that I have brought forward or researched and then explained or taught about. Those are the processes that I use.
David: Thank you.
Participant: When this formula first came up, it was frightening to me. Then it was like, let me just be with this and feel what is there. What came up was that the component of surrender has been very prominent most of my life, from when I was a young kid all the way through to now.
I remember one particular situation with surrender. I was attending a convention in New Orleans in the mid-90s with a group, the International Black Summit. It was inspiring, it was spiritual. There were people from all around the world. I was very deeply inspired to participate with this group as a facilitator instead of just somebody in the audience who was there for the weekend.
This was in the mid-90s, before they had budget plans for phones. To be a facilitator, you were on phone calls once a week. You attended quarterly training meetings in different parts of the country. It felt like, wow, this is going to be a very expensive undertaking. And yet the desire and the calling to be a facilitator was coming from my heart and my soul and it was really, really strong. Then I was confronted with, how am I going to do this? I didn't see any way of carrying this out or making this happen.
I had a kind of breakdown around the desire to do it and the how of it. I talked with one of the facilitators who was involved already, and she said, “Is this something you believe God really wants you to do?” I said, “Yeah, I don't have any doubt about it.” She said, “Well, don't worry about the how; just commit and let God work it out.” It was like a light came on. I said, “I am just going to surrender. I made the commitment to be a facilitator with this group and I'll let God take care of the how, where the money is going to come from, and how I am going to fit this in.”
The first thing I noticed was the presence of joy. I went from the one extreme of being confronted and in tears about it to, once I surrendered, just feeling joyous, knowing that it was handled. And then for two years I participated with that group. So, surrender is a key component. Then trust, because there really is no true surrender without trust. And then the commitment to follow what one is guided to do. And of course, after I surrendered I committed. And then, as I was guided step by step by step, I took those steps. And it was two glorious years of contributing, participating. And it all worked out beautifully.
David: Thank you. Wow! I could feel your soul in that sharing. You are a great facilitator. In fact, I was seeing around you a number of alchemical symbols that the master was showing me that are in your aura, the points of self-mastery that you earned in that whole process of learning to facilitate and the empowerment that came to you. And that empowerment is still with you.
What I am seeing for all of us is that when we go through something like what __________ shared and also what __________ and others have shared, there is an empowerment that comes. Once you do it once and you fulfill a project, a vision, a dream, a goal, you feel that empowerment and you know that you can do it again in some other project or situation because you have already done it. Has everybody had that experience where once you've done one project, “Okay, Lord, I am ready for the next.” You've painted one house, you've done the last little bit of trim at the baseboard, or that last little detail somewhere in the house. “Voilá, I am done!” And then the next project or opportunity presents itself.
There are angels of facilitation as well as angels of coordination, angels of marketing and advertising as well as angels of planning. There are angels that are the troubadours that go to the people that God has desired to employ in various activities. There are angels who tap you on the shoulder to get you to participate in ascended-master projects. Not everybody listens, not everybody obeys, and yet, those who are responsive from the heart do hear or feel or intuit heaven's call.
Remember these Scriptures, “The fields are white to the harvest, the laborers are few,”3 and “Many are called, few are chosen.”4 It is interesting—if so many are called, why are so few chosen? If everybody who is called shows up, maybe those who are chosen have the qualifications, maybe they have the inner motivation of the heart to actually press through to the work itself.
I would like to re-read this one sentence from Saint Germain about trust, because I glossed over it in this last HeartStream. Our alchemical enterprises are birthed with a thrust, mature in truth, and are complete as a trust that provides future generations to be served from the fruits of our divine labors. So, they are birthed, they mature and they are complete. They are birthed with thrust, then we have truth, then we have trust. These three words—thrust, truth and, trust—are similar. They all begin with a t and have an r and a u and another t.
Participant: Components in creating a goal with others: (1) A strong sense of inspiration for the project or creation. (2) Prayer with others before, during and after plunging into the project. (3) Asking people the right questions that will help them to come up with the right answers and help them feel it is their project. (4) Being open to considering any other ideas from others along the way to our creation.
David: Thank you. Being open to suggestions is especially true for the facilitator or the project lead.
Participant: Better results that way than when one person ramrods their single idea.
David: If there are no more sharings, that's it for now.
