In the context of a Lily Activation, Ascension occurs within a guided meditation process whereby one is purified, sanctified, and deified by God through an Act of Grace—thereafter, receiving upgrades, empowerments, and special dispensations by virtue of The Beloved's Grace—so that one can share in the perfections of deity. This saves lifetimes of personal striving on merit.
In the context of Christ-consciousness, Ascension is the process of ascending in consciousness, light-quotient, and Oneness with God until one achieves the favored state of being God's "right hand man" on Earth, i.e., able to "sit at the right hand of The Father."
The Beloveds of the Christ Office first introduced the Ascension activation via the Lily Activation suites on April 4, 2010, Easter Sunday. To receive the Ascension activation requires a lifetime commitment to Christ-consciousness.
Jacob's Ladder is Kabbalah's road map of Ascension to our Heavenly Home. To demystify this, it is best to begin with an understanding of the 4 stages of human development as man moves up Jacob's Ascension Ladder towards union with his Maker.
Later, we will introduce the Lily Activation Master Keys as they correspond to levels of Ascension in Jacob's Ladder.
Jacob's Ascension Ladder
Throne of Creation
The W-circle in Jacob's Ladder (Figure 1) represents the Throne of Creation in the Ascension world of Beriah. It is the throne upon which a Christ-consciousness being sits. Thus, it is called the Seat of the Christ. It is also known as Metatron's Office.
One does not sit at the Seat of Christ in Metatron's Office unless he has willingly merged his will with God's Will, and this is where most men fail when tested. Few can hold the level of sincerity that completely surrenders to the Will of God (especially when ego's will clashes with God's Will).
Guarding the Throne against inadvertent entry is a Veil known as the Arc of the Covenant.
Penetrating the Veil is not an occult experience (thus, supernatural and psychic powers are of no use here) but a spiritual one that requires preparation and training for the service of God.
The sentinels guarding the Throne are called the Holy Spirits of The Face. These sentinels guard the Throne to bar entry of the rebellious and the unprepared. However, the Throne of Christ in Metatron's Office may be visited in meditation if the soul corrects all its imbalances so that an equilibrium is attained. Then the Veil is drawn temporarily while holding the soul into account.
➀ ASSIYAH: Our Animal-Vegetable Consciousness
Section A of Jacob's Ladder
This is the animal-vegetable plane of existence of mankind. It is the ordinary state wherein most incarnate, natural men live and work. It is our ordinary consciousness in the 3D world, where the corporeal holds power and reign.
FOUNDATION: the animal-vegetable consciousness of a human is at the foot of this world.
HEART: the ego-personality and physical life are at the heart of this world.
CROWN: Self-realization. He who attains Self-realization is king of this world.
SYMBOL: the Bull.
➁ YEZIRAH: Our Psycho-spiritual & Intuitive Consciousness
Section B of Jacob's Ladder
This is the psychological-spiritual plane of consciousness of a human. It is an incorporeal world compared to corporeal Assiyah. Dwellers of this world are spiritual seekers and teachers, psychics, intuitives, mystics, occultists, new agers, and supernatural mankind.
FEET: the ego-personality and the physical life are at the foot of this world.
HEART: Self-realization. He who attains Self-realization is the heart of this world.
SYMBOL: the Lion.
➂ BERIAH: Our Heavenly Consciousness
Section C of Jacob's Ladder
This is the spiritual state of Eden. This is the level of consciousness where the 7 Heavens (also known as the Promised Land or Israel) are found. As inner states of ascent, the 7 Heavens are the greater spiritual states, because consciousness enters the world of Creation. This is the blessed state of the most highly realized human beings on earth. When the mind sits in this world, one experiences "bliss of knowing." If both body and mind live in this world, then one is in paradise.
Although this world may be visited sporadically during peak meditative states, staying in the heavenly world while in physical embodiment requires a great accumulation of merit, divine assistance, and Acts of Grace.
FOUNDATION: Self-realization. He who attains Self-realization is at the foot of this world.
CROWN: God-realization. He who attains God-realization is king of this world for he sits on the Throne of Creation.
SYMBOL: the Eagle.
➃ AZILUT: Our Divine Consciousness
Section D of Jacob's Ladder
This is the world of Divine Emanation. Not much is said about this world for it defies description.
This is the place of the "Holy of Holies". At the pinnacle of this tree-world is the IAM THAT IAM. Z'ev ben Shimon Halevi, in his book, "The Work of the Kabbalist" (p. 205), explains, "Here, we are told, the Divine Atom that has been separated from Adam Kadmon since leaving the World of Emanation (Azilut) speaks the highest Holy Name IAM THAT I AM in the full consciousness of its meaning. This act begins the final process of becoming united with the ONE at the Crown of Crowns. In this Union, the last vestige of separation dissolves and individuality disappears in the Divine Abyss of Holy Bliss, before passing out of all Existence into God."
Such an attainment happens when the soul's mission/task/work in the chain of destiny is complete. This, in Halevi's words, is "when Adam Kadmon has absorbed and realized all the experience of everything that has been brought into being, then the image of the Divine knows who is within and without. In this mirror, Face gazes upon Face, and total Union occurs." Gloria in exelcis deo.
SYMBOL: Divine Man.
How the 4 Stages of Ascension Show Up in Life
Assiyah is the stage of life in the 3D world where majority of humanity live. Inhabitants of this world go up and down the ladder of Assiyah (e.g., social climbing, or ascending the corporate ladder) pretty much all their lives. Personalities strive to reach the top of Maslow's pyramid and become king (e.g., "King of Pop", "Queen of Songs", president of a country, emperor of an empire) until he or she is peacefully replaced, or violently overthrown by the next emerging king.
When the ego-personality reaches the top of Assiyah's ladder (M-circle), he revels for a time in the personal glory of Maslow's self-realization and self-actualization, until his glory fades and he is replaced by another self-realized king.
Then one of 2 things may happen: (1) if he is toppled from his throne or replaced, he lands somewhere at the bottom of the Ascension Ladder a.k.a. Tree of Life and, once again, he climbs his way up the ladder just as before; or (2) he begins to search for greater meaning and existential purpose. If this lost sheep chooses the road less traveled in pursuit of higher purpose, then God steps in to extend a helping hand.
God's helping hand can come in the form of Beloveds of the Christ Office who aid the soul's ascent through Jacob's Ascension Ladder. The serious truth-seeker is assisted to attain the highest psycho-spiritual consciousness in Yezirah, known as Christ-consciousness (S-circle), before graduating to the next level.
Upon graduating Yezirah, he is further assisted by Beloved Source and his Inner Maggid, to attain the highest heavenly consciousness in Beriah, known as God-realization (W-circle), before graduating to the next level.
Upon graduating Beriah, his consciousness continues to ascend with the help of Beloved Source and his Inner Maggid, until he attains divine consciousness in Azilut. This was once his original state and his Home before The Fall. In this context, Ascension means "the journey Home."

Lily Activation Master Keys in Relation to Ascension Levels
Secret Chambers & Passages
Metaphorically speaking, each rung of Jacob's Ladder (Figure 1) is a floor in a building, representing a level of consciousness and being-ness. In every floor, there are secret doors to the inner chambers and offices of the Most High G-d. These doors are locked to prevent inadvertent entry. The secret doors are hidden within the symbolic circles (or sefira in Hebrew) of Jacob's Ladder.
Each Lily Activation holds Master Keys that unlock secret passages to the The Most High G-d so that you can enter and then ascend to upper levels of Jacob's Ladder through God's Grace (see "Lily Activation Master Keys for Ascension" below).
Ascension to the upper levels of Jacob's ladder (circles M, N, and S) require more than accumulated merit. An Act of Grace is needed. Hence, the White, Gold, Platinum, and Iridescent Lily Activations are offered for that purpose.
For the great majority, ascension to the uppermost levels of Jacob's Ladder (circles T, W, and topmost circle) also require an Act of Grace. Hence, the Diamond Lily Activations are offered for that purpose.
Lily Activation Master Keys for Ascension
The Platinum Lily Activation holds the Ascension Master Keys that unlock secret doors inside the N-circle of Jacob's Ladder. Pre-requisite: lifetime commitment to Christ-consciousness and Surrender to God's Will.
The Iridescent Lily Activation holds the Ascension Master Keys that unlock secret doors inside the S-circle of Jacob's Ladder. Pre-requisites: lifetime commitment to Christ-consciousness and Surrender to God's Will.
The 1-carat Diamond Lily Activation holds the Ascension Master Keys that unlock secret passages inside the T-circle of Jacob's Ladder. Pre-requisites: lifetime commitment to Christ-consciousness, Surrender to God's Will, and Oneness with God.
The 2-carat Diamond Lily Activation holds the Ascension Master Keys that unlock secret passages from the T-circle to the W-circle of Jacob's Ladder. Pre-requisites: lifetime commitment to Christ-consciousness, Surrender to God's Will, and Oneness with God.
The 3-carat Diamond Lily Activation holds the Ascension Master Keys that unlock secret passages inside the Throne of Creation (W-circle in Jacob's Ladder). Pre-requisites: lifetime commitment to Christ-consciousness, Surrender to God's Will, and Oneness with God.
The 4-carat Diamond Lily Activation holds the Ascension Master Keys that unlock the secret passages (topmost circle of Jacob's Ladder) for Triple Diamond Lilies so that they may enter the penthouse suite in Azilut. Pre-requisites: lifetime commitment to Christ-consciousness, Surrender to God's Will, and Oneness with God.
Jacob's Ascension Ladder (Figure 1) is composed of 3 columns, representing 3 Ascension pathways: (1) the right column is the Way of Mercy, (2) left column is the Way of Severity, Discrimination, and Judgement, (3) the middle column is the Middle Way, the union of Mercy and Severity.
People usually take all 3 pathways in multiple combinations. All paths lead to Home but the Middle Way is the quickest route by virtue of being the shortest. It is here in the Middle Way that you will meet ascended masters of the sacred path－e.g., Jesus Christ and Beloveds of the Christ Office－who share their knowledge and help you find your own Inner Maggid.
Knowing how to converse with The Beloveds of the Christ Office is a distinct advantage, otherwise, ascent up the Ascension Ladder is like being led by the blind or inexperienced. To reduce your handicap, we recommend learning to converse with The Beloveds intuitively and directly. We teach you how in our Evergreen Blossom e-courses.
Initiation of the Living Resurrection
At the zenith (topmost circle) of Jacob's Ladder, one encounters the Bardo states (the liminal states between life and death) and the Final Doorway to the Afterlife. Extremely few have been able to pass through the Final Doorway and resurrect as a revenant with the glorified body of the Resurrected Christ. Master Jesus was one of the rare few.
The journey through the Final Doorway is an initiation called the Living Resurrection. This experience can be extremely terrifying and agonizing for the unprepared and inexperienced. Thus, Blessed Mother and Master Jesus, as the Resurrected Christ, step in and lend a big helping hand through the 4-carat Diamond Lily Activation, so that the initiate may graduate to the next octave of glorified existence via a Living Resurrection that is smooth, painless, trouble-free, and full of Grace.
Ascension Paths and the Middle Way
CLICK HERE FOR ANSWER
In Figure 1, we see that Jacob's Ascension Ladder has 3 columns, representing 3 Ascension pathways:
The right column is the Way of Mercy. It corresponds to the right side of your physical body.
The left column is the Way of Severity, Discrimination, and Judgement. It corresponds to the left side of your physical body.
The middle column is the Middle Way. It corresponds to the middle Channel of Grace in your physical body.
People usually take all 3 pathways in multiple combinations, and that is recommended rather than being stuck in one path. All paths lead to Home but the Middle Way is the quickest route by virtue of being the shortest.
THE MIDDLE WAY
Circles J, K, L, M, N, S, T, W, and the topmost circle of Jacob's Ladder comprise the Middle Way. It is the Channel of Grace, the Law of Grace, and "the place where deity lives." Kabbalists refer to it as the Path of Holiness and Knowledge. It is the union of the Ways of Mercy and the Ways of Severity, Discrimination, and Judgement.
The Middle Way is the sacred path of Love, Union, Knowledge (as opposed to Faith), and Grace. It is here in the Middle Way that you will meet ascended masters of the sacred path－e.g., Jesus Christ and Beloveds of the Christ Office－who share their knowledge and help you find your own Inner Maggid.
Knowing how to converse with The Beloveds of the Christ Office is a distinct advantage, otherwise, ascent up the Ascension Ladder (Figure 1) is like being led by the blind or inexperienced. To reduce your handicap, we recommend learning to converse with The Beloveds intuitively and directly. We teach you how in our Evergreen Blossom e-courses.
Inner Maggid: Your True Teacher
The Inner Maggid, who is the true inner teacher, should be none other than God-self. Any other teacher would be a pretender to the throne. You will know you have met your Inner Maggid by these 2 telltale signs:
THE GOD-REALIZED FOOL. This is the ironic spiritual state of God-realization and halfwit. Similar to the feeling on graduation day, one is youthful and exuberant, knowledgeable yet innocent, confident yet unsure, accomplished yet inexperienced. The dawning of The Fool state is represented by the M-circle in Jacob's Ladder, wherein Christ-consciousness dawns on the initiate although, oddly, he feels like a fool.
The Fool depicts a youth walking joyfully into the world. He is taking his first steps, and he is exuberant, joyful, excited. He carries nothing with him except a small sack, caring nothing for the possible dangers that lie in his path. Indeed, he is soon to encounter the first of these possible dangers, for if he takes just a step more, he topples over the cliff that he is reaching... The dog at his heels barks at him in warning, and if he does not become more aware of his surroundings soon, he may never see all the adventures that he dreams of encountering. - Labyrinthos
THE GURU LEAVES. When the Inner Maggid is realized, the external guru steps aside, and Beloveds of the Christ Office will let you go also if you are their student. This is because any external guru, whether terrestrial or celestial, who comes between the student and his Inner Maggid will only retard the progress of both teacher and student. So, for everyone's welfare, Beloveds of the Christ Office will yank the apron strings, whether you like it or not, to give way to the Inner Maggid, i.e., the God-self who must steer the personality's destiny.
When the student is ready, the guru disappears.
"At one time, it was not possible to raise your frequency and stay in the physical body, but now it is."
Those who live at a purely physical level of understanding, believing only what they can see, hear and feel, metaphorically chug through life in third gear. From above they appear to be clutching the steering wheel, terrified of what might happen to them. They live by human laws, cursing and blaming other drivers and are often scared to change lane for fear of the consequences. Frequently they believe their lane is the only lane anyone should be in.
As we become more open to spiritual matters and especially to unconditional love, we change into fourth gear, or the fourth dimension. This means driving through life in a more relaxed and trusting way, honoring all other drivers on their way and following our intuition. We know that each person’s journey is a unique and special mission for them.
When we accept that we are spirit first and are part of the Divine Oneness, we take mastery of our destiny. Recognizing that we are co-creators with the Divine, with the power and responsibility this entails, we move into fifth gear, the fifth dimension. Then we are able to travel smoothly along the road of life helping others on their way. We let go of our lower will and dedicate our journey to a higher purpose.
When we decide to relax and enjoy the journey we open the sun roof to let in the Light. That is Ascension.
Many people have fears and misconceptions about Ascension. Some think that it means rising up with their physical body, but this is not so. Two thousand years ago that was the case, as the vibratory level of human beings could not sustain the frequency of Light, but we have now evolved. So do not worry about leaving your family. No one asks you to float out of the sun roof. At Ascension you stay firmly and happily in the driving seat, directed by Source, God, the Creator or whatever term you find acceptable for the Power in the universe.
So if you choose to stay in your physical body on Ascension, you will live as you did before, but you will glow, shimmer and radiate at a higher vibration. Feeling joy, unconditional love and oneness with everyone, you will create for yourself Heaven on Earth. You will be in planetary service, so your personal needs and desires will no longer be as important as your desire to serve All That Is."
