Ascended Masters: Who Coined The Term?
amanda linette meder
The Ascended Masters (AMs) were first identified as the Masters of Ancient Wisdom by the writings of Theosophist Helena Blavatsky during the mid-1870’s.
Later the term Ascended Masters was coined in 1924 by a man named Baird T. Spalding to refer to the same grouping of disincarnate beings.
Ever since the term has stuck in common lexicon to refer to a certain grouping of spirits.
What Are Ascended Masters?
The Ascended Masters are a grouping of spirits that technically don’t fit into any standard category of spirits such as deceased loved ones, spirit guides, or angels.
These are misfit spirits who have once lived, making them deceased, but yet, because they ascended in some way during their lifetime, they are often considered more than just deceased and even more ascended than your common everyday spirit guides.
Because AMs cannot be considered Angels, typical Angel classification means you are descended from biblical teachings nor have you been once incarnate, these spirits have been given their own category.
Jesus, Mother Mary, Buddha, and others of like status are all considered Ascended Masters, and though none of these individuals can be considered Angels, most scholars will agree they can be seen as Divine in some sense.
All in all, to become an Ascended Master, one must have embodied Divine-Like qualities while living and then posthumously considered an ascended (read: more than your regular run of the mill spirit guide) guide to the living.
Are Ascended Masters OKay to invoke?
With practice yes.
While not generally considered not the first spirit you’d want to initiate contact with as they can be fairly difficult to pin down and identify for a beginner, as long as you have practice with discernment, it is indeed completely fine to invoke this type of spirit.
In fact, many Ascended Masters will visit their chosen invokee first and choose who it is that channels them, not the other way around.
Meaning, some masters will visit you first to let you know they’d like to work with you, even if you didn’t intentionally call them forward first.
This happens quite a bit with Masters such as Jesus, Mother Mary, and White Buffalo Calf Woman, along with newer masters, such as Einstein or Tesla.
So if a master has visited you first, this is fine and also expected... not dangerous.
Many times they will initiate contact in a dream.
As with most guides, deceased and angels, these are all reflections and manifestations of God (think: we are all made from the same molecules) so anything you connect with on earth is also a product of the earth.
Likewise, anything connected to God is also a product of God, and the Ascended Masters themselves are thought to be connected to certain rays or emanations of God.
Any warning regarding not communicating with masters are best taken in stride and are considered akin to warning against doing a light chemical peel on the face at home.
Sure, high percentage peels could be dangerous if a person started with the highest, most nuclear concentration first, without prepping their skin, or testing lighter acids first -
But even for a beginner, a gentle amount of soothing lactic acid can actually improve skin conditions for the user.
If the right precautions are taken and plenty of experience in lighter spirit contact is had by the user first, when performed by an advanced communicator, invoking the masters, or having them invoke you, is completely fine.
Just as using a Ouija board would be completely fine for an advanced medium to use and initiate contact with, but it could spell trouble for an inexperienced teen.
For beginners, and those interested in connecting with the Ascended Masters, I’d suggest preparing for a connection with any advanced guide including the Ascended Masters by checking out: The Spirit Identification Key, The Spiritual Gateway Meditation Series, or The Talking to Spirits eCourse.
