Lifetimes of the Ascended Master St. Germain
By: Rose Greenwood

The ascended masters are similar to patron saints. They have learned all of their lessons on earth and no longer need to take incarnation among men. The ascended master St. Germain is the master of the seventh ray. This means that he has mastered the spiritual quality of forgiveness and the power of alchemy. One of St. Germainís incarnations was as the prophet Samuel in the Old Testament. Other lifetimes include Christopher Columbus, Roger Bacon and Francis Bacon. A study of the earlier lifetimes of the ascended masters can give us clues to the qualities that they developed in order to make their ascension.

Samuelís mother Hannah was the second wife of Elkanah. For many years, Hannah had no children. One year when Hannah and Elkanah went to the temple to make sacrifices and pray, Hannah begged God to allow her to have children. To be barren in those days was a source of shame for women and was considered an indication that one was not favored by God. A priest named Eli saw Hannah praying and realized the sad predicament she was in. Eli blessed Hannah and assured her that God had heard her prayers. A year later she gave birth to Samuel, followed by three more sons and two daughters. Hannah brought Samuel to Eli as a young child to serve with him in the temple in gratitude for Godís blessing.

Eventually Eli became old and weak. Before Eliís passing, God spoke directly to Samuel, calling him to be a prophet for Israel. Samuel traveled throughout Israel, urging the various tribes to work together and to cease worshipping idols. Samuel became a wealthy man with a flourishing household, but his two sons, Joel and Abijah, were not well respected. The people did not want them to lead Israel. Instead, Samuel was urged to appoint a single national leader. Samuel was considered to be a prophet and to have the gift of foresight, so the people trusted in his decision. Samuel chose Saul to be crowned king.

Unfortunately, Saul was not the model king that Samuel desired. In response, Samuel secretly anointed David as king of Israel. A conflict between Saul and David dominated the remainder of Samuelís life. Samuel was the last judge of Israel. His appointment of David as king began the biblical monarchy that was the lineage for Jesus. In Islam, Samuel is also regarded as a prophet. As an ascended master, St. Germain is also a prophet who warns of impeding dangers so that people will have time to take necessary action.

As Christopher Columbus, the same soul was born in 1451 in Genoa, part of modern Italy. His father was Domenico Colombo, a middle-class wool weaver. His mother was Susanna Fontanarossa. Bartolomeo, Giovanni Pellegrino and Giacomo were his brothers. Columbus claims to have gone to the sea at the age of ten.

At the age of twenty-two, Columbus began his apprenticeship as business agent for three different families: the Centurione, Di Negro and Spinola families of Genoa. Columbus settled for awhile in Lisbon, continuing his trading for the Centurione family. He married Filipa Moniz Perestrello, daughter of the Porto Santo governor. A year or two later, his son Diego was born.

Europe had long enjoyed a safe land passage to China and India, but with the Fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453, the land route to Asia became difficult. In response to this, Christopher Columbus his brother Bartolomeo developed a plan to travel to the Indies by sailing directly west across the Atlantic. In 1486, Columbus presented his plans to Queen Isabella, who referred it to a committee. They pronounced the idea impractical, and advised the queen and king to pass on the proposed venture.

However, to keep Columbus from taking his ideas elsewhere, and perhaps to keep their options open, the King and Queen gave him an annual allowance and furnished him with a letter ordering all cities and towns to provide him food and lodging at no cost. After continually lobbying two years, he finally had success in 1492.

On the evening of August 3, Columbus departed with three ships: the Santa MarŪa, the Pinta and the NiŮa. Instead, Columbus landed at a locale he named San Salvador. According to the contract that Columbus made with King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, he was to be given the rank of Admiral of the Ocean Sea and appointed Viceroy and Governor of all the new lands. The terms were unusually generous, but the monarchs did not really expect him to return. Columbus was later arrested and these posts were taken from him.

In another lifetime, he was born as Roger Bacon in Somerset, England in 1214. During the stormy reign of Henry III of England, his familyís property was abandoned and several members of the family were driven into exile. Bacon pursued a life as a scholar and was engaged in academic and theological studies for decades. He became a professor at Oxford, specializing in philosophy.

Bacon later he lectured at the University of Paris, then the center of intellectual life in Europe. Eventually he became a Friar in the Franciscan Order. This prevented him from holding a teaching post. His activities were further restricted by a Franciscan statue in 1260 forbidding friars from publishing books or pamphlets without specific approval.

Baconís friendship with Cardinal Guy le Gros de Foulques, who became Pope Clement IV, proved to be highly fortuitous. The new Pope issued a mandate ordering Bacon to write to him concerning the place of philosophy within theology. As a result, Bacon sent the Pope his Opus Majus, which presented his views on how philosophy and science could be incorporated into theology.

Roger Bacon also wrote other works on alchemy and astrology. Pope Clement died in 1268, and Bacon was later placed under house arrest by Jerome of Ascoli, the Minister-General of the Franciscan Order for his beliefs and writings.
During his lifetime, Roger Bacon performed and described numerous scientific experiments, which are viewed as the first instances of true experimental science, several hundred years before the official rise of science in the West. Bacon is remembered as a brilliant scholar, scientist and philosopher.

Roger Bacon is one of the foremost lifetimes of the ascended master St. Germain. St. Germain is an ascended master recognized for his work with alchemy and the performing of miracles. He is the lord or chohan of the seventh ray, the color violet and the seat-of-the-soul chakra. During each lifetime, souls perfect various soul and character qualities. A study of the lifetimes of the masters helps us to understand what is required for true self-mastery. Roger Bacon is renowned for his inquisitive mind and his conviction to independent thinking and the scientific method.

As Francis Bacon, he was born once again on January 22, 1561. Biographers believe that Bacon was educated at home in his early years owing to poor health. At the age of twelve he entered Trinity College, Cambridge, and lived there for three years with his older brother Anthony. Francis Bacon studied mostly Latin and the medieval curriculum common at the time. It was at Cambridge that Francis first met the Queen, who was impressed by his precocious intellect, and gave him the appellation ďthe young Lord Keeper".

For the next three years, Francis traveled extensively, visiting Blois, Poitiers, Tours, Italy, and Spain. During his travels, Bacon studied language, statecraft, and civil law while performing routine diplomatic tasks. Bacon had three goals: to discover truth, to serve his country, and to serve his church. Seeking a prestigious post would aid him toward these ends. In 1580, through his uncle, Lord Burghley, he applied for a post at court. This would have enabled him to pursue a life of learning. However, he was turned down. For the next two years he worked quietly at Gray's Inn studying law, until admitted as an outer barrister in 1582.

Two years later he took a seat in the House of Commons. However, his opposition to Queen Elizabeth's tax program in 1584 slowed his political progress. He had powerful enemies; foremost among them was Sir Edward Coke. Under the reign of James I, Francis Bacon translated the King James version of the Bible. An increasing number of scholars also believe that he was secretly working a group of some of Englandís best poets writing the plays credited to William Shakespeare. Perhaps the most accepted and celebrated of Baconís own literary works is The New Atlantis.

Francis Baconís works founded and popularized an inductive methodology for scientific inquiry. His demand for a planned procedure of investigation established proper scientific methodology still in use today. Bacon was knighted in 1603, given the title of Baron in 1618, and Viscount in 1621. He is widely recognized as one of Englandís greatest philosophers, statesmen, scientists and authors.

Saint Germainís lifetimes as a prophet, scientist, author and explorer provided him with varied lessons in self-mastery and alchemy to prepare him for his role as an ascended master today.
