Ascension is the process of breaking free from the wheel of rebirth. To ascend means to raise one’s frequency to a level that vibrates higher than physical/Earthly reality.

To take one’s ascension in an integrated and balanced way means to synthesize and ascend equally all four bodies – physical/etheric, emotional, mental and Spiritual – and to not try and bypass any of these levels. To ascend our bodies means to purify our physical body, spiritualize our emotions, keep our mind steady in the light, and descend our Monad or God Self onto Earth.

To become an Integrated Ascended Master means to fully integrate all aspects of the Divine within self and to become whole and complete. And it is from this state of wholeness and completion that we then can truly serve Spirit, the Spiritual Hierarchy and humanity. If we leave out any of these aspects of self we will become fragmented, and any service work we will be doing will become corrupted as a result.

The Integrated Ascended Master strives for integration and mastery at all times, in all ways and all things.

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.

Some of her service projects include:
