It is not possible to take one’s ascension and become an Integrated Ascended Master without transcending the negative ego or lower self.

The negative or lower self sees itself as separate from God and one another. The Higher Self or Spiritual/ Christ/ Buddha/ Krishna/ Moses/ Mohammed/ Mighty I AM Presence Consciousness sees itself as one with God and everyone.

To think with the negative ego mind or lower self shows as selfishness, separation, greed, lust, anger, fear, and so forth. Obviously it is not possible to become an Ascended Master with this kind of thinking. Or can you imagine Jesus getting angry, Kuan Yin getting jealous and Djwhal Khul turning uncool? Of course you can’t! We would immediately lose our respect and stop calling them Masters! This is why the negative ego mind needs to be transcended and replaced with Christ Consciousness.

This is the psychological aspect of the ascension process. It may not be as glamorous as communicating with the Ascended Masters or Angels but it is the foundation of the entire Spiritual path! If we leave out the psychological aspect, then all Spiritual work that we will do will become corrupted and contaminated.

The good news is that the I AM University offers an integrated and balanced approach to systematically clear the negative ego. Please visit to start your Integrated Ascended Master Training today!

The Integrated Ascended Master makes an all-out effort to transcend negative ego and lower self thinking at all costs! He realizes that to whatever degree he is run by his lower self, he is pushing away the Higher Self.

Author's Bio: 

Dr Joshua David Stone was one of the most influential Spiritual teachers, leaders and forerunners of our time. He had a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and was a licensed Marriage, Family and Child Counselor in California, USA.
He served as Official Spokesperson for the Planetary Ascension Movement and made his mark in the Consciousness Community as a prolific writer, authoring the 15-volume Easy to Read Encyclopedia of the Spiritual Path, published in several languages, as well as eight major Ascended Master Training Courses and several comprehensive Training Programs ranging from channeling, the psychology of astrology, the Book of Life of God, to his legendary 2,000 page Counseling Manual, and much, much more.
Today, the I AM University is the one and only Integrated Ascended Master Training Facility in this world. It stands firmly on the foundation of a comprehensive and ever-expanding curriculum which Dr Stone dedicated his life creating.
In 2005, Dr Joshua David Stone passed over to the Spirit world where he continues to Spiritually support the expansion of the I AM University the continuation of which he entrusted into the hands of Gloria Excelsias, his long-term personal assistant and protégé.
Dr Stone is one of the most widely read authors in the New Age Movement and known as the world’s most trusted source for integrated Spiritual development.

Gloria Excelsias is the President of the I AM University, an educational institution with focus on Spiritual and psychological development that was founded by the late Dr Joshua David Stone in 2004 and handed over to her care and leadership in 2005, at Dr Stone’s passing. As Dr Stone’s personal assistant, close friend and protégé, she received ongoing personal training in applied transpersonal psychology and integrated ascension which would prepare her consciousness for her later service work as the University’s President. Having moved the I AM University from California to Salzburg, Austria, her native country, she is now passionately dedicated to running and evolving the I AM University as an inspired writer and speaker, placing thematic priority on Spiritual psychology, the re-integration and updating of ancient occult teachings and the overall unfoldment of human consciousness.
