When the Master Jesus said that there are “many mansions in my Father’s House,” what he meant with that are the many planes or dimensions of reality.

The physical plane is the plane where the physical body makes physical contact. It is the plane or reality in which we daily walk the Earth. It is the plane we see and experience with our five senses.

However, the physical plane is just one of several planes of reality. There are many more. The plane closest to the physical plane is the so-called etheric plane.

While the higher etheric realms coexist and interpenetrate the physical, they also function as a realm or plane unto themselves. On this plane you will find many devas and etheric beings who are spoken of in folklore as elves, gnomes and wood sprites.

The etheric plane is composed of matter just a bit more refined than the physical plane which we are all familiar with. This is why you need “inner vision” to be able to see the etheric plane and the beings living on the etheric plane. Children in their purity can sometimes see them. It is through love that this kingdom reveals itself to us.

The Integrated Ascended Master realizes that there are many planes of reality, and he makes a conscious effort to discover the various dimensions of reality for Soul growth, Self and God Realization.

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.

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.
