What We All Should Know About The Ascended Masters

xby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
over the last week I reported that the intense impact of the last Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse have triggered collectively more pineal gland awakenings. I also spoke about the effect it has on our ability to heal self and others, and how it collectively makes our psychic abilities increase. And while more and more divine energies are presenting themselves to us in stellar events, the opening is created for energetic/emotional contact with this beings from the other side of the veil. Give it a try, make your call and meet new friends!!

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

Most of the Ascended Masters have been on the planet before. They know what it means to live as a human being, indeed that is the reason why they long to work with us and support the ascension into the Golden Age of Humanity. The Ascended Masters are always there to support us, love us, comfort us, strengthen us, heal us and carry us home to the very center of our own sacred heart. And in the last twenty years the veil has lifted so much, so many illusions have been uncovered and transformed already, it was never easier interact with them.

Now is the the moment for all of us to connect with the Ascended Masters. To start a co-creative relationship based on the feelings of equality, respect and joy. Time to cut all the old ties of negativity or limiting doctrines and to start feeling the presence of the other world in your everyday life as a supportive force. With some devotion and practice, this is possible for all of us. The Ascended Masters are basically humanity’s elder brothers and sisters, beings of light supporting the ascension process of the human collective as well as of the individual.
Most of them walked the planet for many lifetimes, refining their light body through the practice of constant energetic awareness. By being authentic to their soul’s deep wisdom, and a daily practice of devotion to the divine plan and divine guidance, they balanced their karma, fulfilled their spiritual mission, completed their ascension and for this moment of time choose not to live materialized on planet earth. Each and every one of them devoted their last incarnation to elevate the vibration of a particular energetic divine quality of their choice. 7303549_origThey spend all their lifetime to study the essence of their divine energies and it’s impact on human life. The Masters deepened their understanding of  how these energies are best used in order to serve the divine plan and how to feel protected from people and events displaying abuse or manipulation of the same energies, by staying closely connected to their own divinity. By studying the Ascended Masters life’s, their devotion and intense connection to the guidance of the divine plan, everybody can develop a feeling for their loving, helping presence and the endless ways how the Masters are assisting every human being, who is asking for their co-operation.
In the following articles you can find, more detailed information, prayers and invocations about the Masters Buddha Gautama, Lady Portia, Goddess Kuan Yin, Saint Germain, Ashtar Sheran & Lord Lanto.

I hope you feel motivated and encouraged by this infos, to open your ears for the vibrations of the Ascended Master realms!! That the prayers and invocations, included in all the links above, become your most beloved tools for connection, when you choose to practice them with devotion. And that you have lots of fun making this new friends!! May your relations be blessed!!
Light an Love ;-)!

Awakening To Membership In The Great White Brotherhood


Dear Friends,

as we are all aware, humanity is moving thru a collective awakening process of consciousness, to manifest the Golden Age of Aquarius on planet earth. Over the last few weeks in my personal exchange with clients, I met many people on the gap to take immense inner leaps into a higher consciousness, that opens them the   doors to work with “The Great White Brotherhood” of the Ascended Masters. A source of light and space that can bring much strength and effectiveness to our conscious collective and personal awakening work.
The Great White Brotherhood is also known as Great Brotherhood of Light and as the Spiritual Hierarchy of Earth. It is build from a big group of Ascended Masters, each representing a different rays of divine light and higher divine abilities. Among these group are the well known Masters Immaculata, Gautama Buddha, Master Lanto, Maitreya, Jesus Christ, Saint Michael the Archangel, Zarathustra, Moses, Melchizedek, Mother Mary, Saint Francis, Saint Germain, El Morya, Lady Portia, Kuan Yin, Afra and Africa, and many more. With their loving presents, they support humanity on the path to ascending into our authentic individual “I AM PRESENCE”.
The Brotherhood works with everybody who is an earnest seeker of personal awakening and desires to be a public servant of the divine plan. Regardless of race, religion or national origin, all human beings can gain from spending time in their loving presence.kkAnd for all of us, who are ready to live a life of golden freedom, peace and enlightenment, is now the time to become a member of this Great White Counsel of souls, that is holding space and is  bringing force to the awakening process on planet earth. What that means is most beautifully described in the following words by Gustav Meyrink .kk
Who has exceeded the boundary line of this world, has become a link in a chain, a chain created from invisible hands. Hands that never let go of each other, until the end of time. He belongs henceforth to a community in which each individual has a specific mission. Not two exist among them equal to each other in ability or fate, as already among the people of this earth are not two that bear the same fate. The spirit of this community permeates our whole world; it’s here anytime, ubiquitously sending the blessing and the light of hope.

Synchronicity, Number Sequences & Angel Messages
In this very special time of our transition into the Golden Age of Aquarius, synchronicity for the human collective is aligning with the universal number language. What does that mean? It means that timelines open, and for thousands of people the energetic understanding of number sequences (as 222,333,444,11:11,…), sacred geometries and even music (when composing music, you can choose to write it down either in a note or in a number and every musician can read it that way – it is the direct translation of “everything is vibration”) will grow.

6 Abilities an Awakened Man desires in a woman
1) An awakened man wants your true authentic self:
An man on the awakening path, needs a woman who knows herself. A woman who clearly is aware of her core values, strong and centered enough not to change – just to be with him. A woman who does not feel the need to prove herself to anyone. Not to him, not to the outside world. A woman who knows how to communicate, live and share her desires. He will be grateful to her, as long as she shares her true authentic self with him. The loving, inspiring and embracing parts of your true being, as much as the challenging and not so comforting parts. A woman willing to take full responsibility for her being, and her own feelings.

6 Signs that your Beloved Once from the Other World come Knocking

afaby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
if you are familiar with my posts and follow my personal shares, than you might know by now that I had to face a lot of death in my life. For a long time that was a deeply misunderstood and heavy to carry burden, that over the years turned into a profound blessing in my life. One thing I wish I would have known with the same profound faith and emotional experience as I do now is, how it feels when our passed away beloved once are with us. Today I know to enjoy and cherish this moments and sway in the feeling they allow me to dive into.

Here is a list of 6 common signs to remember:
1.) You might be lucky gambling:
In 2011 my brother died in an accident and my mother, of 80 years back than, lost her closest son. It was very hard on her as it felt like the natural order is put upside down, and she should have been the one. My mother is a very tough person and did not cry once, during the funeral or days after. But, because of her age, for the first time in her life the doors to the “other world” behind the veil opened for her. She lives alone, loves playing poker with dice and played against herself pretty much every night before going to sleep. The only difference now, since Martin died she calls for his help when ever she wants to win against herself ;-).. and usually she than makes in the last minute a poker or even grande. This is how we role as a family these days ;-)…

2.) Songs or sounds that repeat:
When I was 18years old, my mothers best friend, who was also the only adult friend that I had, diet in an open heart operation. I remember her telling us about her fears and that she is not sure about the positive outcome. 3 days after her death I was sitting with my partner, his sister and his brother in law in a car. We where waiting for another passenger when the radio first played “seasons in the sun”, than three songs in a row, about angels and their guidance and unconditional help in our lives. It was as if everything in the car froze to slow motion, and the radio was talking only to me. Nobody else noticed the change, but that was when I knew, she was right next to me.

aso3.) Sudden shifts in body temperature:
Another thing that happened for me in the moment of realization, that my beloved friend was right next to me, was an immediate shift in temperature. This is something I continued noticing for the rest of my life. Often when the Spirit Guides, Protecting Angels, Ascended Masters or Ancestor Spirits of a person come into a treatment or ceremony, the temperature shifts into cold showers, for a short period of time. Just as long as it takes for the energies to pass the door, enter the room and adapt to the frequencies in the room.

4.) Familiar smell suddenly in the room:
When my father died alone and unnoticed, he was one of the tragic cases you hear of on the news, because he was not found until a week had past. My mom and he where separated since 30 years and his contact to us children was more by divine synchronicity, than by choice. Another 2 weeks passed until I had excess to his apartment. There is no smell like death, and I think the moment I entered his rooms – my physical body remembered every ending I ever had gone thru on my spiral dance of creation. And than in all of this overwhelming feelings, there was his smell. Not just a perfume he liked, or a familiar smell from our shared home, HE – his body as it smelled when I was a little girl, unharmed and full of faith, pressing my small, vulnerable body against his strong, comforting chest.

5.) Having vivid dreams of them:
This is one of the most common ways for spirits to make contact with us. As we are in a relaxed and uncontrolled state of consciousness, during our sleep phases – it is the perfect time for delegate vibrating beings, to enter our awareness. So it is logical that our beloved once also use this open channel. From shared experiences from the past, to scenes you never actually went through together or guidance how to behave in a particular situation, everything is possible. Being aware of this possibility allows us, to enjoy this stolen hours in deep gratitude and take them in as the blessings they are.
ol6.) Doorbell is ringing – nobody there:

I know that sounds funny and you might immediately think of the youngsters in your community, who make it a game to ring a bell and run. But this is actually a very often reported phenomena, as a sign of other world contact. Mostly it happens shortly after the death of a loved one, while their soul is still in transition. It is a message of “Good By, I will go now” as much as a little cheeky “But I am still here”. And this is the perfect time to establish a contact that goes on beyond the veil!!!

Dear Once, there are many more signs of your family being with you, just keep opening to the possibility and listen to the hints. I hope this information gives you faith and courage to listen, smell, sense and allow, when you feel a beloved deceased person come to pay there respects!! There is nothing to fear, but much to gain! Allow them to be with you and keep breathing deeply, when the magic of the melting dimensions is happening to you!!!
Blessings an Love!

Edith

The Ascended Masters For World Peace Kuthumi & Surya

d11fc825e84bab843e141e54e99c502d

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
by now many of you know that I am a big fan and close friend of the Ascended Master Realms. So it is just logical for me, that after the resent world events, I feel the need to introduce you to Master Kuthumi and Master Surya, the Ascended Masters for World Peace. Allow me to remind you, that the violet flame of transformation and transmutation, the Master Saint Germain and all the other representatives of the divine violet fire, are now more needed than ever. We need to stay focused and work with perseverance on all the feelings that are coming up!! Keep diving deeper into the art of conscious breathing and be courageous when it comes to creating your peaceful world!!
Master Kuthumi is our current World Peace Teacher, a member of the Great White Brotherhood of Masters and representative of the Golden Age of Aquarius, the Earth plane of unconditional love, peace and a brotherhood of men. He is the energy field we internally need to manifest, so our Heart Charka can open to divine expressions of High Vibrations of Love and Deep Peace. Master Kuthumi serves as the door-keeper of the, , as the protector of the Holy Grail (our ancient quest for the I  ), his energy supports ancestral wisdom to re-emergence and, to those who study the world’s religious believe systems – he offers higher understanding of the written word.
Right now in this intense wave of impact, many feel his call to make a leap of faith and to find peaceful solutions for all our collective challenges. To collectively evolve from a place of rage, revenge and vengeance to higher vibrating beings. And to awaken to our personal soul’s knowledge and purpose for a world in balance, harmony and peace.

Kuthumi Messages:
“The ultimate goal of life is perfecting ourselves… it all starts, with the peace within you”.

“Begin spreading peace in your own environment and know – criticism for others is best accompanied with divinely inspired higher vibrating actions of your own”

“And as some of you may not know, I come specifically on a mission to assist you in the resolution of your psychology, your relationships and your ties to Father, Mother, Son and Holy Spirit. I will always come to you when you call to me”.

“And, yes, I will be a part of your ‘master guiding forces as you form tight alliances with trusted friends, devotees on the Path with whom you share a crystal clear vision of a the world to come, with whom you have plans for a specific project all over the world”.index

Master Kuthumi Prayer
I AM Light, glowing Light,

radiating Light, intensified Light.
My inner flame consumes my darkness,
transmuting it into my Light.

Flowing through me is a crystalline river,
  a living and moving fountain of love.
  I AM a unique expression of the divine.
I AM a mighty river of Light.

Flooding the world everywhere
with blessings, peace and unconditional love
.

Surya is one of the Master Teacher from our sister planet Sirius, the planet of the divine blueprint teachings for the Golden Age of Humanity. He is the Elohim of the First Secret Ray, the ray of the Akasha Chronic, and he is serving humanity in the creation of Wold Peace on Earth. His power is the intense blue tinged and white “Flame of Peaceful living” from the Great Central Sun. His energetic presence is best invoked through the Gayatri mantra.

Surya Messages:
“When the time of World Peace comes humanity will be lifted to new heights of vibration, by the conscious use of Music”.

“ The incoming vibrations, the Music of your Higher-Self, will provide some powerful healing to man’s emotional, mental and physical bodies”.

Gayatry Mantra
AUM BHOOR BHUWAH SWAHA,
TAT SAVITUR VARENYAM
BHARGO DEVASAYA DHEEMAHI
DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODAYAT

What To Know About The Ascended Masters

ascended-master-2by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
about twenty years ago the realm of the Ascended Masters started coming into my awareness. For all my lifetime I had a clear feeling for the difference in an energy field coming from a person incarnated, or from the spirit world, so I guess it was kind of easy to communicate with me. Back than, because I was still very unaware about my own inner flow and even that I knew the energies surrounding me are angelic, in essence positively charged and uplifting, I could only allow them to work on me and let happen whatever had to happen, without taking an active role. By now we are living in an active, harmonious, co-creative relationship.

Over the years I developed the ability to call them in one by one. To ask for their vibration to appear in many varied situations and more and more Masters came. I gained a deeper understanding of how to work with them and a clear feeling, emotional connection and mental openness to who is coming through me, what kind of energetic vibration they provide and what the qualities are we can embody with their loving help. Most of the Ascended Masters have been on the planet before. They know what it means to be a human being, indeed they long to work with us and support the ascension into the Golden Age of Humanity. The Ascended Masters are always there to support us, love us, comfort us, strengthen us, heal us and carry us home to the very center of our own sacred heart. And in the last twenty years, the veil has lifted so much, so many illusions have been uncovered and transformed already.

Now is the time for all of us, to connect with the realm with the Ascended Masters. To start a co-creative relationship based on the feelings of equality, respect and joy, to cut all the old ties of negativity or limiting doctrines and to start feeling the presence of the other world in your everyday life as a supportive force. With some devotion and practice now, this is possible for all of us. The Ascended Masters are basically humanity’s elder brothers and sisters, beings of light supporting the ascension process of the human collective as well as of the individual. Most of them walked the planet for many lifetimes, refining their light body through the practice of constant energetic awareness. By being authentic to their soul’s deep wisdom, and a daily practice of devotion to the divine plan and divine guidance, they balanced their karma, fulfilled their spiritual mission, completed their ascension and at this moment of time choose not to live materialized on planet earth. Each and every one of them devoted their last incarnation to elevate the vibration of a particular energetic quality of their choice.

And don’t forget to keep breathing deeply when you start feeling the presence of the other world surrounding you!
Blessings an Love ;-)!

The Four Types of Friends According to the Buddha

50Dear Friends,
maybe some of you remember an article from August, which told us about the positive impact that being exposed to Buddhist Concepts has on us. But have you ever heard that in Buddhist Tradition there is the idea, that we have four different types of friends. I definitely never before thought of my relations from this perspective, but found it quite interesting to think it thru. Especially considering this amazing time of change, while our relationship paradigms are changing so profoundly.
Buddhists tell the following story,
Ananda approached the Buddha once and remarked that “half of the dispensation is based on friendship, companionship and association with the good.” to which the Buddha replied “Ananda, do not say so. Not half, but man’s entire life is established on friendship, companionship and association with the good.”
So it might be worth to think about the relations we had so far, how much our close friends fit the picture of Buddha’s characterization and if we have to make some adjustments to our friendship circle. I wish you blessed relations, deep insights and that you enjoy the read!
Love and Blessings!! Edith
anYoung man, be aware of these four good-hearted friends: the helper, the friend who endures in good times and bad, the mentor, and the compassionate friend.
The helper can be identified by four things: by protecting you when you are vulnerable, and likewise your wealth, being a refuge when you are afraid, and in various tasks providing double what is requested.

The enduring friend can be identified by four things: by telling you secrets, guarding your own secrets closely, not abandoning you in misfortune, and even dying for you.

The mentor can be identified by four things: by restraining you from wrongdoing, guiding you towards good actions, telling you what you ought to know, and showing you the path to samsaric heavens.

The compassionate friend can be identified by four things: by not rejoicing in your misfortune, delighting in your good fortune, preventing others from speaking ill of you, and encouraging others who praise your good qualities.

Medical Marijuana Is Now Legal In All 50 States Thanks To Congress.

01f76-marijuana-leafSo things are finally moving. Still not a guaranty that this ridiculous “so called” War on Drugs will end but at least a Beginning and a step f hope in the right direction. Enjoy the read!
Blessings Edith

While Congress was busy stripping away consumer protections and legalizing bank fraud, they managed to slip in a little provision which made many marijuana advocates rejoice.States that have legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes will no longer have to worry about federal raids on their operations.

The Obama Administration has made it part of their policy, although unofficially, to neither indict nor raid dispensaries and growers of medicinal marijuana. While this is encouraging, it is a tenuous hope at best. Just because the Obama Administration has not made it a priority and put focus on other issues within the nation does not mean that a future administration could reverse course and begin a hunt to take on the medical marijuana movement.
Since the “War on Drugs” began back in the 1970’s the United States has spent more money fighting this than any other moral social expenditure. We have created a system of imprisoning more people than all other nations on the planet – combined! The vast majority of our prisoners are in jail due to the harsh sentences imposed by the “war on drugs.” In fact, 1 in 8 prisoners is in prison because of marijuana. And the disparity between blacks and whites receiving sentences for marijuana is also sadly depressing.

mmmBut Congress may have finally begun a stage of waking up from decades of failed policy. As stated above, tucked in the newest budgetary act, Congress approved a measure to legalize all the creation, distribution, sales, possession, and use of medicinal marijuana.
All 50 states are affected by this measure. This does not mean that medicinal marijuana is effective immediately in every state. The states must first ratify at their own legislature the passage of medicinal marijuana in order for the process to begin. Currently, there are 32 states that have medicinal marijuana approved. The remaining 18 states need to realize it’s time to catch up and put this horrible legacy of imprisoning our population behind us.

This brings to light a problem plaguing combat veterans suffering from PTSD. Many of them have been given prescriptions by the Veteran’s Administration and receive medicinal marijuana in states that have measures legalizing it for medicinal purposes. Will this now extend the medical practice to any of those 18 states who have yet to see the light?
That is another question that could set a precedent for speeding up the process to making this the non-issue it always should have been.

30 Ways to Practice Self-Love and Be Good to Yourself

QoR8Bv1S2SEqH6UcSJCA_Tea2Hey you! Did you know that you’re very special? There is no other person in this world like you. You deserve to be loved not only by those around you but by the most important person in your life — YOU. Practicing self-love can be challenging for many of us, especially in times when we face serious challenges. It’s not about being self-absorbed or narcissistic, it’s about getting in touch with ourselves, our well-being and our happiness. We practice self-love so we can push through our limiting beliefs and live a life that truly shines.

So do yourself a favor, take a deep breath, give yourself a little hug and start practicing the following:

  1. Start each day by telling yourself something really positive. How well you handled a situation, how lovely you look today. Anything that will make you smile.
  2. Fill your body with food and drink that nourishes it and makes it thrive.
  3. Move that gorgeous body of yours every single day and learn to love the skin you’re in. You can’t hate your way into loving yourself.
  4. Don’t believe everything you think. There is an inner critic inside of us trying to keep us small and safe. The downside is this also stops us from living a full life.
  5. Surround yourself with people who love and encourage you. Let them remind you just how amazing you are.
  6. Stop the comparisons. There is no one on this planet like you, so you cannot fairly compare yourself to someone else. The only person you should compare yourself to is you.
  7. End all toxic relationships. Seriously. Anyone who makes you feel anything less than amazing doesn’t deserve to be a part of your life.
  8. Celebrate your wins no matter how big or small. Pat yourself on the back and be proud of what you have achieved.
  9. Step outside of your comfort zone and try something new. It’s incredible the feeling we get when we realize we have achieved something we didn’t know or think we could do before.
  10. Embrace and love the things that make you different. This is what makes you special.
  11. Realize that beauty cannot be defined. It is what you see it as. Don’t let any of those Photoshopped magazines make you feel like your body isn’t perfect. Even those models don’t look like that in real life.
  12. Take time out to calm your mind every day. Breathe in and out, clear your mind of your thoughts and just be.
  13. Follow your passion. You know that thing that gets you so excited but scares you at the same time. The thing you really want to do but have convinced yourself it won’t work. You should go do that!
  14. Be patient but persistent. Self-love is ever evolving. It’s something that needs to be practiced daily but can take a lifetime to master. So be kind and support yourself through the hard times.
  15. Be mindful of what you think, feel and want. Live your life in ways that truly reflect this.
  16. Treat others with love and respect. It makes us feel better about ourselves when we treat others the way we hope to be treated. That doesn’t mean everybody will always repay the favor, but that’s their problem not yours.
  17. Find something to be grateful for every day. It’s inevitable that you are going to have your down days. This is fine and very human of you. It’s especially important on these days to find at least one thing you are grateful for as it helps to shift your mind and energy around what’s going on.
  18. Reach out to family, friends, healers, whomever you need to help you through the tough times. You are not expected to go through them alone.
  19. Learn to say no. Saying no sometimes doesn’t make you a bad person, it makes you a smart person.
  20. Forgive yourself. You know that thing you did one time (or maybe a few times) that made you feel bad, embarrassed, ashamed? It’s time to let that go. You can’t change the things you have done in the past but you can control your future. Look at it as a learning experience and believe in your ability to change.
  21. Write it down. Head swimming with so many thoughts it’s giving you a headache? Write them all down on a piece of paper, no matter how crazy, mean, sad, or terrifying they are. Keep it in a journal, tear it up, burn it, whatever you need to do to let it go.
  22. Turn off and inwards. Grab a cup of your favorite tea, coffee, wine, whatever your choice of drink, and sit down for a few minutes on your own. No TV or distractions, just you. Think about the wonderful things that are happening in your life right now, what your big dreams are and how you can make them happen.
  23. Give up the need for approval from others. “You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches.” – Dita Von Teese
  24. Be realistic. There is no person on this earth that is happy every single moment of every single day. You know why? Because we are all human. We make mistakes, we feel emotions (good and bad) and this is OK. Allow yourself to be human.
  25. Get creative and express yourself in whatever way you like. Painting, writing, sculpting, building, music, whatever takes your fancy, and make sure you leave your inner critic at the door. There are no right ways to be creative.
  26. Let go of past trauma and wounds. This can be a really tough one and it may be one of those times you need to turn to others for support. The truth is though, when we let go of things that have happened to us it’s almost like a weight is lifted off our shoulders. We don’t have to carry that around with us anymore. We deserve better.
  27. Find your happy place. Where’s the one place you feel totally at ease, calm, happy, positive, high on life? Go to that place when you are going through hard times, or imagine yourself being there. Think about how it feels, what it smells like, what it looks like.
  28. The next time you are feeling happy and on top of the world make a list of your best qualities and accomplishments. It may sound a little corny, but it can be a wonderful reminder when you are having a day that’s less than amazing.
  29. Get in touch with your inner dialogue. If it’s anything less than loving, encouraging and supportive, it’s time to make a change. You deserve to be spoken to in the same way you would speak to your best friend, sister, brother, daughter, or son.
  30. Have fun! Get out there and do the things that light your fire. Enjoy them, enjoy being you and enjoy your incredible life.

I feel better already 🙂
