The path of ascension is intimately connected with the path of initiation. Essentially, an initiation is an expansion of consciousness. The higher our level of initiation, the more evolved and expanded our consciousness will be.

Our level of initiation is measured in light or light quotient. Building light quotient means to anchor greater and greater frequencies of living light into each of our cells. Light is a key attribute of Spirit. An enlightened being is someone who has anchored a certain measure of light into his consciousness and four-body-system.

To become an Integrated Ascended Master means to raise our overall frequency to a sufficient degree that allows us to break free from the wheel of rebirth and continue our Spiritual path and journey on a dimension higher than this that resonates with our new heightened vibration.

We raise our frequency by brining more and more light into our cells. This is why light quotient building is so essential on the path of ascension and initiation.

The Integrated Ascended Master realizes that we ascend by becoming lighter and lighter – literally. To ascend means to realize that we indeed are the Light of the World – in the most literal sense of the word!

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.
