Who Is Saint Germain?

Saint Germain, Master of AlchemyEl Morya succinctly describes Saint Germain, "The Lord of the Seventh Ray, who is the Master of Alchemy, teaches not only the uses of the energies of freedom and the spirit of liberty, but also the way of the alchemical ritual as a necessary component of soul liberation. His ritual is alive with meaning. In his retreat in Transylvania he unveils the symbology of the ritual of the atom and the fomulae of the cycles for the release of God's energy in manifestation in man. ...On Friday night call to be taken to the Cave of Symbols, the retreat of Saint Germain on the North American continent, so that you may be saturated with the violet flame focused there and so that you may begin to master the ritual of the atom for the Aquarian age.

Elizabeth Clare Prophet on Saint Germain

Saint Germain is more than an ascended master to me—he is the very spirit of freedom in the heart of America. He is the master of the Aquarian age just as Jesus was the master of the Piscean age.

Saint Germain comes to teach us the way of freedom. He asks the question: "What does it really mean to choose freedom?" And he answers it: "It means to free the electrons in your body and consciousness to flow with freedom's fire. It means to allow the electron to choose the path of freedom and not to subject that electron to the bondage of a limited consciousness, a limited matrix. It means to free your own self-awareness so that you can be aware of the self as having the potential of the Infinite."

I know that I am not unique in that millions of Americans today feel the tie of their heart flame to our beloved Saint Germain, our Uncle Sam. He was embodied as the prophet Samuel, hence the name. Saint Germain overshadowed the early American patriots in the framing of the Constitution and in the designing of our flag. He even anointed our first president, George Washington.

Saint Germain teaches that without the freedom to create there is no freedom. The opportunity to create is the basic endowment we have with the gift of free will.

The masters, through Saint Germain, have sponsored America to be a pilot nation for the republican form of government, for representative government according to the inner path of initiation. Those who have the greatest attainment in the Christ consciousness are intended to rise to the position of being statesmen and great examples of virtue to the people. ...They are intended to have integrity—the determination to be wed to a cause with nobility, love, purity, and so forth. ...And, of course, the ascended masters do sponsor every nation as the leaders of the nations are responsive to their vibrations.
