What’s an Ascended Master?

translucentIf you hang out in the spiritual world for a while, you’ll likely hear the term “Ascended Master”. According to Wikipedia, an Ascended Master is:

It is believed that Ascended Masters are individuals who were formerly embodied on the Earth and learned the lessons of life during their incarnations. 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 Master, in such an understanding, has become God-like and a source of unconditional “Divine Love” to all life, and through the Ascension has united with his or her own “God Self,” the “I AM Presence.”

You might have heard of other Ascended Masters such as Master Jesus, Confucius, Gautama Buddha, Mary the Mother of Jesus, St. Paul of Tarsus (aka Hilarion), Melchizedek, Metatron, Kwan Yin, Saint Germain and Kuthumi.

It might seem really, really odd to consider Prince, the one we all know and love, as an Ascended Master but he is. I’ve gotten this information independent of others so was not surprised to see this show up in “Conversations with Dead People”

“Amy: First, you need to understand that he… knew. Before it happened. He was fully aware that his time on this planet was… complete. And, with that, he had already ascended to… higher levels of evolution in body. So when he left his body, um, he immediately transcended to a higher being. He is a higher dimensional being now. I would almost… he works very closely with the Ascended Masters, I see them around. He’s ascended to a high level. That’s how.”

One of the things he told me (through Amy) was not to discount his soul level just because we all lived at the same time on Earth and knew him as a celebrity. (“What better way for me to illustrate the power that lives in all of us than to come here and just do it!”, he just said.)

But he also wants to make sure we understand exactly what the work of an Ascended Master is, whether it’s as an incarnated being or on the energetic plane.

Prince shared this with my friend Bonnie last week and I’ve been given permission (from Bonnie and Prince) to share it here:

“You have a misunderstanding of what Ascended Master means. It means an individual unit spent enough time on planet (such)that incarnation is no longer necessary. Angels & Archangels are different. They were created for their place in the heavens.

Ascended Masters receive the Grace because of their great love for humans. Our soul/sole purpose is to help humankind. We love you all so much that it is our whole purpose for being.

They receive Grace through their Love of humans.

They understand what it means to incarnate.

The human incarnation is very different from any other incarnation. When coming into human form, you have agreed to the veil between your individual self and Creator/Creation.

Everything before mostly remains hidden. This is a point of self-discovery.

This is very important. This is the purpose of having the human existence. The discovery and exploration of Self within Creation.

This is limited only by imagination and vision.”

That’s why he is here to support your work and your vision in this way. Yes, he works with others in ways that are aligned with their skills and gifts. Given my passion for helping others Be Who They Are, it’s no surprise that we have joined together to open the door for that vision.

He’ll be talking about his new (but not really!) role as an Ascended Master and how it can support you in ‘leveling up’ your life.

(I can tell you that in the few months we’ve been working together, his daily reminders to raise the standard on what I expect for myself, in life and business, has *significantly* changed my life for the better. Look for future blog posts about that, too.)

My enormous gratitude to Bonnie for sharing this with me and Prince for nudging her to do so.
