A new awareness of mental freedom

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, May 16, 2016. This dictation was given at a conference in Holland.

I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain. I am the Chohan of the Seventh Ray. I am the leader of the Aquarian Age, the Hierarch of the Aquarian Age.

My beloved, you have heard a magnificent discourse from each of my six fellow Chohans who are all here with me, as we all stand before you in humility and awe over the fact that so many people on earth, yourselves included but far beyond yourselves, are able and willing to tune in to some of the new ideas that we are bringing forth.

We have called it the “Golden Age of Saint Germain,” which is, of course, because I hold the position as the main director for the Aquarian Age. As you can clearly see from this conference, it is truly the Golden Age of all of the Chohans, all of the Archangels, all of the Elohim, all of the masters who are working with earth, including, of course, that wonderful Being that we all love, Mother Mary.

A universalist mindset

It is a cooperative effort up here and it will, of course, be a cooperative effort on earth. That is why we are looking to you – who are our direct students, who are open to our messages – to get yourselves out of any remnants of the sectarian mindset and adopt this universalist mindset that we have talked about. You are focused on raising up the All and not focused on getting any credit or recognition or converting people to a particular sectarian idea or philosophy.

We, my beloved, are not looking to bring in the Golden Age through one particular source but through many, many sources, for that is the only way that we can avoid the fallen beings taking control over it. Just look at how one particular church in Europe, the Catholic Church, became instantly the tool for the fallen beings and was so for so many years. This, of course, can be repeated over and over again until the people have had enough of it, but we have already long ago had enough of it. That is why we are bringing forth the Golden Age of Aquarius through many different sources, which fortunately is possible today.

It is possible for the major reason that Jesus himself set a foundation that many people have been able to use at inner levels to manifest a degree of personal Christhood so that they can be the open door for the influence from Spirit. Even if a person is the open door for one idea during a lifetime, that is a major contribution to bringing forth the Golden Age.

Freedom from and freedom to

I want to talk about what you have just done in this rosary where you have invoked an alchemical shift of perception. If you look at the history of humankind, you can interpret it, of course, in various ways but you can look at it as a continuing process of seeking greater and greater freedom for the people. Freedom has two aspects: freedom from and freedom to.

When you are oppressed, when you are limited by some external force, you naturally seek freedom from that force. There can come a higher recognition of freedom as a freedom to flow with the Spirit. If you look at the history of humankind so far, you can see that people have mainly been concerned about attaining freedom from. You might, with your knowledge, say that the population has been seeking freedom from the power elite.

This is a perfectly valid way to interpret history. It is clear that in the Aquarian Age the influence of the power elite will diminish. Many of the fallen beings in embodiment will be judged and then will be taken out of embodiment. Many of the fallen beings in the emotional, mental and identity realms will also receive their judgment and will be removed from this earth, possibly going to the second death (some of them). There will be an aspect of bringing the Aquarian Age that is a freedom from these external forces, but this in itself will not bring the Golden Age into manifestation.

In fact, you cannot attain freedom from the power elite through physical, material means. This is what the other Chohans have attempted to explain to you. There is no way to bring the Golden Age through physical means. You cannot, even if people were awakened to the existence of the power elite tomorrow, create some kind of institution that is meant to identify the power elite and dethrone them from power. It could not be done. It could not work at the present level of the collective consciousness.

What is it that is needed? What is needed is an alchemical shift in consciousness. What do I mean with alchemical? Well, even though alchemy has been somewhat the laughingstock of the scientific community and, of course, was persecuted by the religious community of the Catholics, there is a validity here. The validity is that there is a recognition that the substances that are in existence on earth right now can be transformed into a higher state. This is the essence of alchemy.

It is possible to take what is manifest on earth right now and transform it into a higher state. There is also implicit in the alchemical mindset that you need to find some ingredient that is not physical in order to accomplish this. This is implicit in true alchemy. There is, of course, a false alchemy, which thinks that there is some magical formula, some philosopher’s stone, some chemical element that can bring about this transformation in a mechanical way. The true reality of alchemy is that the philosopher’s stone that can transform one element into another is consciousness, the Christ consciousness or a “higher state of consciousness,” if we are completely neutral.

Mental freedom is the norm

If there is one thing, from the perspective of the Seventh Ray, that I would like to see happen in society, it would be that the awakening that has already begun to happen would be accelerated so that people would realize that there is no condition in human psychology, in the human psyche, that cannot be transformed into a higher condition. When I, as the Chohan of the Seventh Ray of Freedom, look at humankind, I naturally want people to be free.

Of course, I want people to be free from the power elite and from any external oppression and limitation, but I also see that the only way, the absolutely only way, to accomplish this is to first free them from the limitations in their own psyches that are burdening them and weighing them down. Why is the power elite still in power? Because people have so many psychological burdens that they cannot raise themselves to the awareness of the power elite and the awareness that will simply flush out the power elite without much physical action having to be taken.

The most important single step, from my perspective, that could possibly happen on earth was a groundswell of an awareness that we have reached a point where the intensity and the frequency of mental illnesses and other psychological maladies has reached a level where we need to do something different, something we have not done before.

We cannot use the Christian paradigm to cure mental illness but neither can we use the materialistic paradigm to cure mental illness. Therefore, we need to find a new paradigm. We need to find not just one new paradigm but many different paradigms and modalities, many different approaches to mental illness, mental freedom. The concept I want to put into the collective consciousness of this planet is the concept of “mental freedom.”

You have so much talk about mental illness and people think that mental illness is something you can ignore until it becomes a crisis that you can label as a depression or schizophrenia or this or that. Then you need to do something about it, but I want to put out the concept that ideally all human beings should enjoy and manifest mental freedom. Mental freedom is the normal state for a human being.

Right now, you have in every country a certain sense of normality based on how most people function, or rather how most people dysfunction. In all countries you still have a situation where virtually all people have unresolved psychology to the extent that they are not functioning at their optimum capacity. They do not have mental freedom, and therefore mental freedom should be the norm for a human being. It should be seen that until you have that mental freedom, you are not manifesting your highest potential. It is desirable – it is, in fact, normal – that all human beings, first of all, are striving for mental freedom and are engaging in a lifelong process to attain this mental freedom. Therefore, society should help in this process right from the kindergarten stage and even before. When the child is in the womb, there are things the parents can do to help facilitate the process of children engaging in this lifelong process of achieving and expanding mental freedom.

The rest of this dictation, along with an invocation based on the dictation, is found in the book: Manifesting Saint Germain’s Golden Age.
