Saint Germain's Divine Magic and Two Million Right Decisions
Question #11: What did you learn about divine magic in your life as Merlin and in other embodiments, and how did that assist you in making your two million right decisions?
David: What Saint Germain says he learned about the use of light within divine magic is that it is the alchemical ray that transforms, assists, blesses and beatifies, and that understanding the nature of light is key in all alchemy and divine magic. Light can be invoked, coalesced, focused, directed, infused and projected in a number of ways and through a number of means. All of this is ultimately directed by divine intelligence and the mind of God when we first focus on the Divine and then, through prayerful and thoughtful obedience to the voice of the One, allow that light to flow through us.
He's showing me the symbol of the wand as an instrument for directing current, and that current is pure light. The intelligence of the light itself will fulfill the purpose to which that wand is directed and focused. Some of you may have seen the Harry Potter movies in which magicians and certain beings used wands—some for good purposes, some for less than good. The wand that Merlin used was an extension of his own consciousness. He embedded within that wand pure love and light and the power of love and light. The wand is a power center and a focus through which the light can be extended, expanded and directed. Your hand, especially when you extend your hand and you point your index finger, can be a wand. You have to, of course, be careful what you point at because you have three fingers pointing back at you. Only that which is divine should flow through the extension of your hand in this gesture of pointing that finger. When you say, “You there, do this!” and such, there can be a misuse of power. Dictators often will dictate using this gesture.
What the Divine Director does is direct the current as an extension of God's consciousness to infuse whatever is pointed at with light, love, radiation, beauty and grace. In The Hearts Center, we don't use our finger like this in anything that we do, although we could. If you are in your home and you feel energies that are untoward, you can ask to have a current of light directed at the core of that to dissolve it so that you can do your work unencumbered. You may close your eyes, form the magic circle around yourself and stand within that magic circle. And then you can point your hand and your index finger wherever God in you moves you to direct that energy, to focus that energy, and see the light going forth victoriously to do its perfect work. You're not blasting someone, killing someone or dissolving someone. You are simply extending the current of divine light to fulfill its purpose within divine intelligence.
I mentioned the magic circle. Merlin, of course, knew about and used the magic circle around him as a protective shield. We talked about that in previous Meru University courses. The magic circle and the use of the wand are both effective tools. If you look at the circle and sword of Astrea, you basically have the same in that visual. That really is a gigantic sacred circle and wand or sword. It's basically the same.
Merlin was tapping into Elohimic levels of cosmic current in his work and actually worked with, in addition to the Divine Director, certain Elohim that he was aware of, including Arcturus. He drew forth the light from Arcturus in some of his work in the Earth to secure for Camelot, King Arthur, the Round Table, the Knights and Ladies of the Flame energies of Spirit that they could utilize in their work, which was creating a community of light there, in Glastonbury and elsewhere. Much of the record has been lost, and yet you can ask to go to Saint Germain's retreat or to the Grand Teton to see the records of Merlin's embodiment to discover more of what he actually did.
Sometimes we just have to ask and believe and accept that when we ask we will be given what we ask for. In a short course like this, we won't be able to convey everything that Merlin did, and yet in the retreats of the Great White Brotherhood you can see much more. Two million right decisions—you're not going to see all that in a few short minutes. Yet if you see the review of the life of this hero, as we talked about a couple of days ago, you will see many of those two million right decisions and what he did both as Merlin and in other lifetimes.
The magic circle, the wand and the coned cap, which created a vortex through which the mind of God could illumine him and keep him in an illumined state, are symbols of Merlin. Many people think that this coned hat is a symbol of witches and magicians and all that. Yet if you look at it in its pure essence, it is a portal to the Divine; it points to God. What one is really doing by wearing this conical hat is channeling, or focusing, the energy of the crown chakra towards Spirit. And likewise, you're accepting the ray from the Divine, from your I AM Presence, that is extending down to you to suffuse your crown with wisdom, divine truth, understanding and knowledge. Merlin was the wise one in the midst Camelot. He was the one who people looked to for answers, for support, for understanding. How did this wisdom come to him? Partly through his development in past lives and also by his directed focus on being a receptor for the mind of God, which that conical hat does symbolize.
Did he wear violet garments all the time? No. He often wore white, he says. Why did he wear white? Because it conducts pure light from the Source. If you look at movies such as The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, you see that the Merlin-like figure wore white. There are parts of some of those movies where the masters, including Saint Germain, actually infuse energy through the image of Merlin. You can feel it in the movie at the point when the light is blazing from the scepter that he held. He is saying that in addition to the wand, he used a scepter. If you look at the picture of Lord Maitreya in front of me, you will see the scepter that he bears, with the sphere that has a point on top of it. Saint Germain's, as Merlin, was different. I'm seeing that the rod, or staff, was made out of brass and gold. At the top of the scepter was a Maltese cross, which was fashioned by an initiate. Merlin received this at the age of fourteen. Why fourteen, I don't know. He's not revealing that to me. He had passed certain tests by that time, and he used it for the duration of his life in certain mystical work.
The Maltese cross was, of course, a symbol that Saint Germain used in subsequent lifetimes. It directed the currents of light through the fourfold aspects of that symbol. There is more on this that you can read about in the first Alchemy book by Mark and Elizabeth Clare Prophet. This is something that could be recreated if someone desired. It was brass and gold. The outer part was gold and acted as a conductor. The Maltese Cross part was beautiful and it was of pure gold. There was a lot of gold in the staff that he used.
Saint Germain, as Merlin, was a mage, and he found himself communing often with Melchizedek. He was and remains in the Order of Melchizedek, with beloved Jesus. In fact, as Joseph he shared with Jesus when he was a young man some of the inner teachings that he received directly from Melchizedek, a priest of Salem, a priest of the Most High. Merlin was well equipped to teach the Knights of the Round Table, and specifically Arthur, keys to the initiatic path. Much of the teaching had to do with the initiatic path. It may have been couched at times in terminology that we would call divine magic or white magic, yet it was primarily all about the path of light, the ancient Brotherhood, how the work of that community of light at that time was imperative to hold the balance for the British Isles and what would transpire in later centuries.
As Merlin, he even drew upon the mysticism of the Druids. In fact, that community was more, in a sense, Druidic than Christian, if you would call it that, in terms of the way that they operated, the way that they worshiped, the way that they chanted. Their chants were absolutely amazing. We could learn from the way that they chanted. Their chanting was rhythmic and in absolute perfect harmony. They had great voices, which were trained. Merlin would direct them, almost like a conductor, in their chanting sessions, which were absolutely phenomenal. I would love to see the record of these sessions because I think it would give us pause to consider how we could release even greater light in some of our sessions of singing and chanting. Their chants used words that were more ancient than what English uses today and that tied into Atlantis through an ancient tongue that Merlin had learned from another initiate. These words and phrasings of words and syllables were able to release certain fohatic energies and were very powerful. Their chanting drew forth the fire of heaven. Many of these sessions at the Round Table were primarily sessions of chanting. They would chant and then Merlin would give teaching, and then Arthur, of course, would also give teaching.
The record of that life was stupendous. Through what we call history and stories, other things have been portrayed about some of the characters that were involved. Saint Germain says that about 80 percent of what's out there is incorrect. They were part of a mystery school; they were initiates. It was all about the path of initiation. There was not quite the drama that Hollywood has outpictured. Virtually none of that occurred. It has all been colored and passed down in ways that cloud the true identity of what they were doing as a mystery school.
How did divine magic assist Saint Germain in making two million right decisions? His love of God was there through every incarnation. The love of God, applied magnanimously to every situation, allowed him to always intuit, fathom and then obey the inner voice of God, through love, to make those right decisions. It became so natural that it wasn't an effort any longer.
It's simply a matter of following the inner voice. For many of us, the inner voice has been clouded over, and we have to kind of strain to hear what is true within us. When you live in the Presence, it is so natural that it is grace flowing—you obey, you move on and you accomplish. It doesn't have to be hard. That's why he said that the sense of struggle makes the struggle. He learned to eliminate the sense of struggle by living in the Presence. When we can do the same thing, life becomes sublime, easy, graceful, joyful, radiant. When we ascend we will see how life should be, without a lot of the impediments that we observe in this incarnation. Life is not meant to be difficult. Look at Eden in the beginning. Life was supposed to be enjoyable, pleasurable, in a divine sense, for every life form. And we can return to that if we choose, by our conscious choice.
