What are Ascended Masters and who are they?

What are Ascended Masters?

The Ascended Masters are very old and wise souls that have completed their incarnation cycle. They have reached a state where they no longer need to incarnate in order to evolve. Instead, they are now assisting Earth from the non-physical dimension. They both assist humanity as a whole and individual humans.

Who are the Ascended Masters?

Ascended Masters come from all races, and cultures and have worked with mankind throughout history. In Buddhism, Ascended Masters are referred to as Bodhisattvas.

Ascended Masters are often associated with one of their more prominent physical lives (incarnations). Very well known Ascended Masters are Jesus and Gautama Buddha. Maybe you know Saint Germain. But there are many more. Some more well-known than others.

Below is a list of Ascended Masters and the areas they are associated with. If they cover an area you would like assistance with, you can ask for their assistance. More on how to do this after the list.

When will you encounter them?

They might just come to you

They might come to you at some point in your life to assist you with different purposes. For instance, if you do healing, energy work, or work with tasks that serve humanity or a greater purpose. They do not necessarily introduce themselves but might simply assist you in your tasks discretely. They can inspire you with ideas and make your way smothers. If it serves a purpose, you might get to know them also.

In Channelings

Ascended masters can also appear in channelings where they share their wisdom through a human channel. Their loving words can be guiding messages, encouragements, teachings, or their perspective on current events.

Channeling the Ascended Masters

They often assist lightworkers but everybody can reach out to them

Ascended masters often work closely together with lightworkers which also serves to assist Earth’s development and ascension. However, everybody can reach out to them for guidance and support. Your religious background, race, culture, or other choices in life doesn’t matter.

Due to their non-physical nature, they can assist as many people as needed at the same time. Hence, we should not worry about bothering them with insignificant requests.

How to contact the Ascended Masters?

We can contact and communicate with the Ascended Masters the same way we communicate with spirit guides, angels, or archangels. They hear our thoughts when we reach out to them. This way it is sufficient to contact them through our minds.

How to find the right Ascended Master to contact?

From my list, you can get inspiration and a bit of knowledge about each Ascended Master. However, you do not need to know which ascended master to reach out to. The right one will find you when you reach out to them. According to Peter Mt. Shasta:

A call to any of the masters is a call to all of them, so the right one will come”

This makes good sense and from personal experience, I know it works the same way with angels and archangels.

What is the difference between Ascended Masters and Archangels?

Both the Archangels and the Ascended Masters oversee the development of humanity. However, there are differences. The powerful Archangels were directly created for the purpose and serve as extensions of God (or “Source consciousness” if you prefer that word). 

Ascended Masters in contrast evolved to become what they are. They are souls that went through thousands of human lives on Earth (incarnations) in order to evolve and grow at all levels. Through their many incarnations, they have obtained vast knowledge about different aspects of human life and at some point ascended. Now they assist and serve humanity from the spiritual realm the same way as the Archangels do.

Due to their highly evolved nature, their energy frequency is also very high and pure. This way they are energetically close to the Archangels that also hold a very high and pure energy frequency.

To sum up, the Archangels and the Ascended Masters have similarities and both serve humanity but they have different backgrounds. For more insight on Archangels please refer to this article: “What are Archangels?”.

Do the Ascended Masters still incarnate on Earth?

The Ascended Masters have completed their incarnation cycle so they do not have to go to Earth. However, they can choose to do so voluntarily to firsthand contribute to Earth’s development and ascension.

Then they will typically function as lightworkers of some sort where they can contribute in various ways. They will not necessarily incarnate as religious leaders. Instead, they may take on the lives of ordinary people that however somehow make a difference.

How many lives (incarnations) does it take to Ascend?

According to my knowledge, there is not a fixed number of lives needed to ascend. It is individual how much growth and experience each incarnation contribute to the soul’s growth. It is also individual how fast the soul learns its lessons. Some lessons need to be repeated through many lifetimes before the soul advances to new areas of learning. But to my knowledge, we are talking thousands of incarnations.

Other Masters, Divinities, Deities, and Cosmic helpers of the Earth

Below is a list of other Masters, Divinities, Deities, and Cosmic helpers. They in some cases get mixed with Ascended Masters. But in my opinion, they fall more in the above categories. Not all Masters originate from Earth but can still assist Earth in many ways.

I mention these here since you might come across them at some point. Or, they might make their presence known to you. I have only limited experience in using these. I consider the Ascended Masters described above, The Archangels, and Angels very safe to work. But the list below is very mixed. Hence, you should use your own intuition about whether you want to be involved with any of them or not.
