The probationary path is a path of preparation to prepare the incarnated Soul for the first initiation.

The Soul upon the probationary path very slowly begins to tune in to the Higher Self, and in turn, the Higher Self vaguely begins to turn its attention to the incarnated Soul. At this stage in evolution, the incarnated Soul also attracts the attention of a Master or group of Masters to which it is linked by certain cosmic and karmic ties and laws of attraction.

At this early stage the person is actually generally not conscious at all of this link with its Higher Self and assigned Master who at this point merely seeks to stimulate the probationer through impressions of light and love.

It then depends on the person’s own choices as to what he does with this influx of divine stimulation and at what rate of speed he will evolve. So, how fast the probationer evolves is dependent on his response to the Master’s stimulation.

The Integrated Ascended Master is well on the road to Self and God Realization. He works both very closely and consciously with the inner plane Masters he is linked with.

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.
