Messages and Guidance from Masters, Mystics, Saints and Gemstone Guardians
By Margaret Ann Lembo
Saints, ascended masters, and mystics are available to help each and every one of us. We can tap into assistance from these divine beings when we send out prayer and petitions for guidance. Through meditation and visions – waking, sleeping and dreaming contemplation - guidance is available from the master teachers, mystics, and saints. Gemstones are powerful tools, which guide you toward personal understanding. The colors and shapes of the stones bring you messages to motivate and heal you in many ways.
Who are the Master Teachers?
Master teachers are spiritually enlightened beings, who in the past, have had incarnations as a human being and were able to pass various forms of initiations, trials, and tribulations. These experiences led to transformation and eventually enlightenment. They were ordinary humans who transcended the norm because of their experiences, wisdom, compassion, and inner peace. They are beings who dedicate their lives to helping others find peace and happiness – to release us from suffering – and lead others toward enlightenment and self-knowledge.
Masters are those who attained enlightenment through self-actualization and self-mastery through their own free will in alignment with the divine. The divine has many names some of which are God, Goddess, Creator, the Universe and more. Because of their oneness with God, they have mastered time and space known as ascension. Ascended Masters have balanced their karma and fulfilled their life purpose(s).
There are master teachers who are considered part of the Great White Brotherhood. The Ascended Master teachings were introduced by Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky in her work with Theosophy. Theosophy is “any number of philosophies maintaining that knowledge of God may be achieved through spiritual ecstasy, direct intuition, or special individual relations with the divine.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theosophy)
Theosophy, a philosophical movement, arose in 1875 as a society created by Madame Blavatsky and Henry Teel Olcott. The Great White Brotherhood consists of many masters who channel their energy, wisdom, and knowledge to and through mankind. With a bit of focus and intention, anyone with the desire to connect with higher vibrational beings as an avenue to connect with God, has the ability to open to receive their messages and insights. In many ways, this is a similar definition for the experiences of many of the saints.
Who are the Saints?
A saint is a person acknowledged as holy or virtuous and typically regarded as being in heaven after death. They are ordinary men and women, who through their faith overcome common weaknesses, failures and shortcomings. Mother Theresa often said that the difference between a saint and one who isn’t a saint is that a saint never gives up. Perseverance is the key to sainthood.
Saints are sometimes martyrs and they create miracles. They have often experienced the dark night of the soul. They are called on for intercession – petitioned for help. In Catholicism, they go through beatification and canonization. Saints exist in many religious philosophies.
Hindu saints often renounce the world and worldly possessions. They are often called gurus, sadhus, swamis and more. Bodhisattvas are considered Buddhist saints. Bodhisattvas take the vow to continue to return to earth until all sentient beings reach enlightenment. In both Hindu and Buddhist philosophies, Samadhi is a state of being that saints attain as a higher spiritual power to reach enlightenment. In Sanskrit, Samadhi means “putting together” or “uniting”.
Regardless of the religious philosophy, saints desire to connect with higher vibrational beings as an avenue to connect with God. Through this connection the ability receive their messages and insights is opened and the channeled force of the divine is present. The divine connection is one that mystics seek.
Who are Mystics?
A mystic is a person who seeks, by contemplation and self-surrender, to obtain connection with the divine. They may believe that spiritual understanding is beyond the intellect. Mystics trust their own inner truth and don’t often align with doctrines. Mystics look for understanding of the question – Why am I here? What is my purpose?
Mystics are aligned with their own intuition and perceive reality from a deeper perspective. They are the channel for the divine or higher power. Mystics are seers and receive insights that are beyond the ordinary. Some might call them metaphysical or supernatural revelations which, simply put, means the revelation wasn’t received in an ordinary way. Many mystics are writers, though not all are writers. Those that have written their insight, wisdom, and teachings leave us their lessons to use as a springboard to our own spiritual enlightenment.
Mystics know that they aren’t the source of that power and that love is the ultimate purpose and goal of life. Mystics realize that there is no way to know everything because of the infinite nature of the Universe. They are ready to learn more and trust in the process. If you are reading this it is likely that you are a mystic, too!
Who are the Gemstone Guardians?
The energy of these master, mystics, and saints have certain elements and vibrations that relate to the energy and vibration of gemstones. Gemstones have an elemental energy also known as devic forces. The color, shape, and mineral components all hold vibrations that become a vibrational match for these human masters, mystics, and saints. Mother Earth has wisdom flowing through her crystalline veins on a global scale. The Gemstone Guardians is a term I use to describe the vibrational essence of a crystal, mineral, or stone – including fossils and shells.
In my most recent publication, a set of oracle cards, you will find gemstone associations that relate to the energy of a given master, mystic, or saint. The message these beings bring along with the gemstone provide an oracle to use for personal spiritual awareness and development. Oracles have been used in many cultures, religions, political and spiritual arenas for centuries. In ancient Greece, oracles were priests and priestesses that brought through divine messages in response to specific inquiries.
Using the innate elemental energy of gemstones, the Gemstone Guardians speak to us just as these divine beings speak to us. The color, origin, mineral compounds and shape offer insights to the stone’s meaning. Messages from the divine light your path and become spiritual markers and models on how to improve your life, your thoughts, your words, and your actions.
In this deck of cards, the oracle, you will find Tiger Iron is associated with St. Joan of Arc for her strength and courage. St. Valentine has a vibration associated with Ruby in Fuchsite for the combination of love and romance.
Chlorite Phantom Quartz is the gemstone associated with Walt Disney for his ability to see deeper into nature and align with plant and animal lives. He helped humans realize that plants and animals have a consciousness through personification and communication skills of plants and animals demonstrated in movies and theme parks.
Sathya Sai Baba and copper are a good vibrational match because he is known for materializations of vibhuti – holy ash – and other small objects as well as miraculous healings. Sathya Sai Baba established a network of free hospitals, clinics, drinking water projects, auditoriums, ashrams and schools. Like copper, he became a conduit to materialize a variety of blessings for many on this planet.
We can turn to the lives of these beings to help us with our daily life. Employ gemstones to amplify the energy of a master, mystic, or saint to tune into their mastery for your own life. Vibrational matching a gemstone helps to maintain a focus on what we do want to create, manifest, or become and steers our thoughts away from what we don’t want in our lives. Use this oracle as a tool on your path for personal enlightenment.
Everything is energy and even though energy is invisible we have their wisdom as an energy that can be downloaded, received, integrated, and interpreted through various channels and forms. We are able to tune into that channel – the frequency of these wise ones – to inspire us through intuition. We continue to learn from the teachings of the vibrations of gemstone and masters, mystics, and saints.
