Glossary of Ascended Master Terminology

  • Archangels
    Archangels are Angels that have passed certain Initiations and gained the Attainment of this rank in the Hierarchy of the Angelic Hosts. The Attributes of the Solar Consciousness and God Consciousness of each of the Seven Rays to the Earth's evolutions are represented by an Archangel and His Divine Complement, an Archeia.
    • The First Ray (Blue Flame of Power, Will, Protection, and Faith) is represented by Archangel Michael and Faith in the "Temple of Faith and Protection", in the etheric realm over the Canadian Rockies, near Banff and Lake Louise, Canada, and extending over the border of the United States.
    • The Second Ray (Yellow Flame of Illumination, Wisdom, and Understanding) is represented by Archangel Jophiel and Christine in the Retreat in the etheric realm south of the Great Wall near Lanchow, north central China.
    • The Third Ray (Pink Flame of Love, Adoration, Creativity and Compassion) is represented by Archangel Chamuel and Charity in the Retreat in the etheric realm over St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A..
    • The Fourth Ray (White Flame of Purity, Discipline, and Harmony) is represented by Archangel Gabriel and Hope in the Retreat in the etheric realm between Sacramento and Mount Shasta, California, U.S.A.
    • The Fifth Ray (Green Flame of Truth, Healing, Abundance, and Science) is represented by Archangel Raphael and Mother Mary in the Retreat in the Temple of the Sacred Heart in the etheric realm over Fatima, Portugal.
    • The Sixth Ray (Ruby, Purple, and Gold Flame of Peace, Ministration, and Service) is represented by Archangel Uriel and Aurora in the etheric realm over the Tatra Mountains, south of Krakow, Poland.
    • The Seventh Ray (Violet Flame of Freedom, Ceremony, Mercy, and Transmutation) is represented by Archangel Zadkiel and Holy Amethyst in the "Temple of Purification" in the etheric realm over Cuba.
  • Ascended Masters
    The Ascended Masters are Individuals who were once embodied on Earth and learned the lessons of Life in Their embodiments. They gained Mastery over the limitations of the matter planes, balanced at least 51% of negative karma, and fulfilled Their Dharma (Divine Plan). An Ascended Being has become God-like and a Source of unconditional Love to all Life, and through the Ascension has united with His or Her Own God Self, the "I AM" Presence. Ascended Masters serve as the Teachers of mankind from the Realms of Spirit. The Divine Plan is for all people to eventually attain the Ascension and move forward in Spiritual Evolution beyond this planet.
  • Ascended Master Octave
    Also known as the Ascended Masters' Octave, this refers to the Divine Realm of Light that is composed of the Immortal, Eternal Seven Planes of the Spirit Universe. These are the habitation of the Ascended Masters, Angels, Cosmic Beings, and Elohim - as well as the Electronic Bodies of those who have not yet Ascended. In The Magic Presence, Saint Germain explained that in the Octave of the Ascended Masters there is "Perfect Life which is the Divine Light and Eternal Inheritance of every one of God's children. Many have chosen to take a long time to come to This Point, but all must make a beginning sometime, and all must do It eventually."

  • Ascension
    The Ascension in the Light into our Immortality - through reunion with our own God Presence - is a goal of life. Once we have completed our Divine Plan and balanced at least 51% of our karmic debts to life, there can be the complete raising and permanent union of the purified outer self with the "I AM" Presence - that True Identity that is the unique Individualization of the Most High Living God for each person.
  • Bodies of Men and Women
    We have "seven bodies". There are four lower bodies: physical, emotional, mental, and memory. These bodies are four sheaths composed of four distinct vibrations of matter that surround the lifestream and provide the vehicles for the personal identity's journey through time and space. There are three Higher Bodies: the Holy Christ Presence, the Causal Body, and the Electronic Body of the Mighty I AM Presence. These Bodies are three Immortal Bodies composed of three distinct Vibrations of Spirit. There is also the "White Fire Body" of the Individualized God Flame - out of which the I AM Presence of each Twin Flame is emanated. The "Individualized God Flame of Perfection" — which proclaimed "I AM" — continues Active and Immortal - before the embodiment of Twin Flames, during embodiment, and after the Ascension of the Twin Flames.
  • Brotherhood of Light

    A Spiritual Organization, also known as The Great White Brotherhood, composed of those Ascended Masters who have Arisen from our Earth into Immortality, and yet have said: "We are not going on into Cosmic Heights and leaving our brothers and sisters on Earth behind. We will stay and assist." At this moment in Cosmic History, the Door is wide open. The Great White Brotherhood is sponsoring the Release of the Spoken Word through conclaves, seminars, writings, books, and through personal discipleship and training. The Brotherhood of Light also includes Members of the Heavenly Host, the Spiritual Hierarchy directly concerned with the evolution of our world, Beneficent Members from other planets that are interested in our welfare, as well as certain unascended chelas.

  • Chohan

    A Chohan is an Ascended Master that focuses the Christ Consciousness of one of the Seven Rays of God's Manifestation, becoming the Law of the Ray and governing Its use in man. A Lord or Master; a high Adept; an Initiate who has taken more Initiations than the five major Initiations which make man a "Master of the Wisdom".

    In The Secret Doctrine, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky described the Chohans as "Seven Mighty Beings who, having passed the Sixth Initiation, have the Power to focus within Themselves the Ray-Streams or Attributes of Logoic Consciousness"

    The Seven Chohans of the Rays are Ascended Masters representing the Attributes of the Solar Logos and the God Qualities of each Ray to Earth's evolutions. Their Hierarch is the Maha Chohan ("Great Lord") who also is entrusted with the distribution to all of Nature of the Electronic Force of the Outpouring of Life in the Five Secret Rays (also known as the Five Pranas, Breaths, Elements).

    • The First Ray (Blue Flame of Power, Will, Protection, and Faith) is represented by El Morya, at the Retreat of God's Will in Darjeeling, India.
    • The Second Ray (Yellow Flame of Illumination, Wisdom, and Understanding) is represented by Lord Lanto at the Royal Teton Retreat, Grand Teton Mountains, near Jackson Hole, Wyoming, USA.
    • The Third Ray (Pink Flame of Love, Adoration, Creativity and Compassion) is represented by Paul the Venetian at the Château de Liberté in southern France.
    • The Fourth Ray (White Flame of Purity, Discipline, and Harmony) is represented by Serapis Bey at the Retreat and Temple of the Ascension in Luxor, Egypt.
    • The Fifth Ray (Green Flame of Truth, Healing, Abundance, and Science) is represented by Hilarion at the Temple of Truth in the Island of Crete.
    • The Sixth Ray (Ruby, Purple, and Gold Flame of Peace, Ministration, and Service) is represented by Nada at the Arabian Retreat in Saudi Arabia.
    • The Seventh Ray (Violet Flame of Freedom, Ceremony, Mercy, and Transmutation) is represented by Saint Germain in the Cave of Symbols in Table Mountain, Teton Mountain Range, Wyoming; and at the Great Divine Director's Rakoczy Mansion in Transylvania, Romania.
  • Christ Presence

    The Holy Christ Presence — also known as the Higher Mental Body, Holy Christ Self, Higher Self, or the Guardian Angel — is the Divine Mind that is aware of the Perfection of the God Presence, but is also aware of the imperfections and requirements of the outer self. This Christ Mind does not accept any imperfection of the outer human self, but remains Pure and Perfect. The Holy Christ Presence is endowed with the Discriminating Intelligence to act in the outer self - Directing and Governing the amounts of Light, Life, and Love released into the outer body forms. It has been described as a "Step-down Transformer" with the ability to act in the lower human realms. This form is of a lower vibratory rate than the Electronic Body of the God Presence, and is composed of the Light Substance of the Buddhic Octave.

  • Electronic Body

    The Electronic Body is the Immortal Body which the "I AM" Presence — a Divine Consciousness — uses as one of Its Vehicles of Expression. This Electronic Body has Divine Purity and Structure, and forever remains "Eternally Youthful, Beautiful, Strong, Perfect, and Free from every conceivable limitation. In this Body, individuals can and do function wherever they choose in the universe, for in It there are no barriers of time, place, space, nor condition." Beloved Jesus referred to this Body when He spoke of the "Seamless Robe" or the "Bridal Garment" of the Spirit. No imperfection can ever be recorded in or upon It, for It is composed of Pure Electronic Light. Saint Germain has stated that: "Every human being sometime, somewhere must raise the outer or atomic structure into the Imperishable, Electronic Body, where no imperfection exists." (The Magic Presence, by Godfre Ray King, 1974 - 4th edition, pages 63 - 66, 87)

  • Great Central Sun

    The Great Central Sun is the Source and Center of a galaxy and a Cosmos. It is the Nucleus of Integration of the Spirit/Matter Cosmos, and the Origin of all physical and spiritual creation. It is the Heart of the God Life of the Universe. The Great Central Sun is One with every individual's Mighty I AM Presence.

  • Great White Brotherhood

    See: Brotherhood of Light

  • Hierarchy

    The Cosmic Hierarchy is a "Universal Chain" of Individualized God Free Beings fulfilling Attributes and Aspects of God's Infinite Selfhood. Included in this Cosmic Hierarchical scheme are Solar Logoi, Elohim, Sons and Daughters of God, Cosmic Beings, the Twelve Solar Hierarchies, Archangels, Angels, Beings of the Elements, and Twin Flames of the Alpha-Omega Polarity sponsoring Systems of Worlds and entire Galactic Systems. This Universal Order of Divine Self-Expression is the means whereby God in the Great Central Sun steps down the Presence and Essence of His Universal Being / Consciousness in order that all Life in time and space might give and receive Unconditional Divine Love. One's placement on this "Ladder of Life" in the Spirit / Matter Universes is determined by one's level of Spiritual Attainment — measured by Awareness and Manifestation of balanced Love, Wisdom, and Power — as well as the embodying of other Divine Qualities.

  • Human creation

    Human creation is that mis-creation which human beings create through a consciousness of being separate from God Perfection - separate from Divine Ideals and Inspiration. It is limited creation that is the result of carnal and mortal motivations, with a tendency toward human equations of desire, egotism, self conceit or self concern. There may be subtle vanity, or pride, or prejudices inherent within the thoughts and discordant feelings. The result can be creation of imperfection which the Ascended Masters have termed "human creation".

  • "I AM"

    For thousands of years the inner understanding of the Name of God and the Creative Words — "I AM" — had been restricted to the Retreats of the Great Brotherhood of Light and given only after a three year probation. However because of the urgency of the hour and the urgent need for humanity to have greater Assistance, the Dispensation was granted Saint Germain for this Teaching to be given to the outer world. In The "I AM" Discourses, Saint Germain explained that the Words "I AM" release the full Power of God in Action. They are the first expression of every self-conscious Being. "I AM" is the purest and highest Principle of Life, of the Individualized God Presence, of the Universal Intelligence that is ever endeavoring to bring forth the Manifestation of the Original Pristine State of the God Source.

  • Lifestream

    The Stream of Life that comes forth from the Individualized God Presence — the I AM Presence — in the Planes of Spirit, and descends to the lower planes of creation where it manifests as the Threefold Flame anchored in the Heart Chakra (in the "Secret Chamber of the Heart" for the sustaining of the individual identity and the lower bodies in the matter planes. "Lifestream" denotes the ongoing nature of the individual through its cycles of embodiment on this and other worlds. It is used to denote the unfurling of the Identity of Individualized I AM Presence - whose Sacred Destiny is to outpicture Christ Mastery while in embodiment and externalize the God Qualities.

  • Lightbearer

    Lightbearer means one who carries or sustains the Light of the Christ and bears the responsibility for Christhood in himself and others by defending the Truth and Honor of God. Beloved Gautama Buddha considers every person with a Threefold Flame to be a "Lightbearer".

  • Anointed Representatives™

    The Anointed Representatives of the Great White Brotherhood are anointed by the Hierarchy as the Representatives who deliver Discourses and Dictations of the Ascended Masters that provide the Instruction and Illumination that is deemed most vital for our time. Another very important function is to anchor Light in the matter planes of the Earth. This is to assist in the raising of the vibratory frequencies of our planet during this transition period into our Earth's new Cosmic Cycle in this System of Worlds. A Messenger is trained by the Ascended Masters to receive by various methods the words, concepts, teachings, and messages of the Great White Brotherhood. Although there are only "Two Messengers" of the Brotherhood, the "Two Messengers" constitute the Office of the "Two Witnesses" spoken of in the Book of Revelation. This is a high and holy calling to which Twin Flames are ordained in every age. As there is only One Christ, so there are many Manifestations of the Office of the Christ; and as there are Offices in Hierarchy, so the Opportunity to Serve in those Offices is given to Ascended and unascended Sons and Daughters of God as they evolve in the Hierarchy of the Great Brotherhood of Light.

  • Mighty I AM Presence

    We have an Individualized Presence of God — the "I AM" Presence — as part of our very Nature and Being. This is that Part of each one — the God Self — which is the Imperishable, Eternal, Individual Identity of every person. This is the Individualized Flame of Life from the Great Central Sun and from the Universal All-Pervading Presence of Life. It is the I AM THAT I AM; the God-Identity of the individual; the Divine Ego, the Immortal Monad, the God Presence that is each person's Source.

  • Threefold Flame

    The Threefold Flame of the Holy Christ Presence is the Flame of Life anchored in the secret chamber of the Heart in the Sons and Daughters of God and the children of God. The Sacred Trinity of Power, Wisdom, and Love, that is the Manifestation of the Sacred Fire, is only one-sixteenth of an inch high within the average human heart. It is made up of a Blue Plume, a Yellow Plume and a Pink Plume of Radiant God-Charged Electronic Light. Each Plume is a manifest Focus of God Qualities. The Blue Plume of Spiritual Power relates to Faith, Good Will and the Divine Intent. The Yellow Plume of Divine Wisdom relates to Illumination, to the right use of Knowledge, and to the expansion of the Intelligence of the Godhead into the chalice of the heart and mind. The Pink Plume of Divine Love provides the Qualities of Mercy, Compassion, Justice, and Creativity. The Threefold Flame is the Sun Center and Source of Life to the physical body. The expansion of a person's Threefold Flame brings him closer to his own eternal Freedom in the Ascension. When we speak of the Presence of God "within" each one, we are refering to the Glorious Victorious Threefold Flame of Eternal Truth within.

  • Violet Flame

    The Violet Flame is the Consuming Flame of Divine Love and Compassion. This Violet Fire is the Grace of the Ascended Host that allows the transmutation and consuming of human creation and all negative karmic causes, effects, records, and memories, without the need to individually balance that karma face-to-face with each individual back to our earliest incarnations. Saint Germain has explained that by calling to the Mighty I AM Presence to release this Action of the Sacred Fire, a person can purify the mind and body of unnecessary substances which hinder the Flow of Light and thus clear the consciousness to receive greater Illumination. This Flame of God elevates the unhappy substance of human creation back into its original Pristine Radiance.
