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.

Saint Germain's New Alchemical Formulas for Spiritual Success

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.
