Ascended Masters and Their Teachings

 

 

Who Are the Ascended Masters?

If you were to teach a religion but did not know how it was created, who was the founder, where the core beliefs originated or who or what the early followers believed it would not be easy to teach. Many followers of the ascended masters might belong to an organization that teaches ascended master concepts but not an understanding of where the core beliefs originated, who was the founder and what the first followers believed. This is a series of discourses to describe the beginnings of the ascended masters and their history through some of the major teachers of this movement and their offshoots. Many students have been indoctrinated with the official stories of who and what the ascended masters are and teach without hearing and knowing about the other side of the story. There is a psychological reason for this. Students are taught to stay away from anything that disagrees with the official story based on the belief that any other story comes from "evil" that is bent on destroying the "true teachings", which are believed to be the teachings of the ascended masters. In this series, hidden, or little know facts are presented allowing one to not only see more clearly, but to stay on the straight and narrow path to Christ's Reality.


The First Ascended Master Adherents

Part one begins with what are ascended masters and who brought forth the concept of masters. This part gives an overview of Theosophy, New Thought, Christian Science, Arcane School and Spalding's books introducing the "Ascended Masters" in his Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East.


The First Ascended Master Organization

Part two of the series explains the beginning of the I AM Movement, who were their messengers and some of their teachings, and bringing to light that these leaders may not have had the integrity we would associate with being heaven's mouthpiece. Guy and Edna Ballard claim they were the only accredited ascended master messengers.


The Last Effort to Free Mankind?

Part three of this series covers the new organization, Bridge to Freedom, that formed between some former students of the "I AM" Movement, with the messenger Geraldine Innocente. This part covers some of the group's dictations describing their accomplishments from doing decrees, and what some of their beliefs and dispensations were, as well as who moved from the "I AM" Movement to the Bridge and then on to the Summit Lighthouse with Mark Prophet, and the surprising end to Geraldine's life and the Bridge to Freedom. The masters of wisdom stated through Innocente that the effort by the “Bridge to Freedom” is the last effort to free mankind.


Are the Ascended Masters Real?

A look at the history of the mahatmas, the Mahatma Letters, the ascended master development, messengers and offshoots from the ascended master organizations in light of the reality or unreality of the ascended masters.


The Summit Lighthouse

A relating of some of the history of the early years of the Summit Lighthouse and what brought their messengers, Mark and Elizabeth, together; what their main teachings are and how some of their concepts originated. Part II of the Summit Lighthouse will continue with more a personal insight from intimate contact with the inner and outer community, as well as the messenger, Elizabeth, interwoven with others who have shared their insights from living and working on staff.


Finding the Summit Lighthouse

My personal experience finding the Summit Lighthouse and why I became attracted to the teachings of the "ascended masters" with a few insights into my early experience with the Summit.


The Summit Lighthouse - Camelot Years

In the years following Mark Prophet's death, Elizabeth moved the Summit/Church headquarters four times, while keeping the same focus on evil and the fallen ones taking over the world, impending cataclysm or war, and the survival preparedness consciousness that Mark Prophet started. Elizabeth also married, divorced and married again in a few short years and went through a tumultuousness time with her ex-husband and lawsuits. Meanwhile, the dictations through her were also including the idea of some impending cataclysm in the world that students should be prepared for. Sexual exploits were also exposed, and the fact that Elizabeth had lied or hidden these types of activities from her congregation.


Personal Experiences with the Holy Spirit

From what source were the little miracles that occurred in my life after joining the Teachings of the Ascended Masters? Whose voice did I hear saving me from danger while driving across country? These questions are addressed as I share some of my experiences and what it was like to go the church's Summit University.


More Personal Experiences with the Holy Spirit

After returning from Summit University there were many challenges returning to my marriage and dealing my husband's view of my belonging to a "cult". After two child kidnappings my husband arranged, our divorce was inevitable. Yet life after our divorce and resolving child custody issues became some of the happiest years of my life serving the "masters", having spiritual experiences at conferences, being healed of entities and working with the Holy Spirit. Yet many of my spiritual experiences confirmed the Ascended Master Teachings concepts and beliefs. Some force was directing my life and keeping me in the belief that the teachings were true.


Beliefs and Practices of CUT During the 1980's

In this ongoing series about the Summit Lighthouse, Church Universal and their messengers, the Church focus is on the judgment of fallen angels, especially Satan, a being called Peshu Alga and Lucifer. But is there really a fallen angel called Lucifer? The Bible only alludes to such, and those Christians who do believe in Lucifer believe Lucifer and Satan are one and the same. Not so for the Summit Lighthouse. Other beliefs and practices are looked at and how perfectionism enters the picture.


Arriving in Montana During the Shelter Cycle

In this piece of the Summit Lighthouse series I give my view of the experience lliving in Montana during the shelter cycle in 1989-90, and what happened in my personal life after meeting a man in the Church, marrying and moving to South Glastonbury, the property the Church bought to accommodate the thousands who would move to the area. They never did, and Glastonbury, both North and South, never had even a thousand people living there. The Church sustained some blows during those years as Edward Francis was sentenced for illegal purchases of guns, and the nuclear war predicted for March 1990 never came about.


After the Failed Prophecies

The messenger begins to have more epileptic seizures during the shelter cycle, yet it is hidden from the church followers. The years following the failed prophecies the messenger begins to doubt her communication with the masters, two more of her children leave the teachings, her memory is failing and she and Edward divorce after she gives birth to a son with the help of a fertility clinic. Soon she is diagnosed with Alzheimer disease. I take up training as a Health Kinesiologist and begin to hear the "masters" and experience the Holy Spirit in connection with my healing practice.


Communication Experiences with the "Masters"

After the Messenger retired, Gilbert Cleirbaut, the new President of the Church, resigned. The new leadership had opposed him. Schisms occurred within the organization that appeared to be caused mainly by the headquarters and the new hierarchy. New messengers began appearing, but not accepted by the new hierarchy, and groups with no messengers but who could not get along with headquarters. Meanwhile, I was being trained to be a messenger myself, although I was not aware that was what was occurring. I share some of my personal experiences hearing what I believed was heavenly guidance, and the positive changes that occurred in my life because of this inner guidance.
