Saint-Germain* The Illusion of Spiritual Attainment


The Illusion of Spiritual Attainment

A channeled exercise from Saint-Germain

Here is a guided meditation from Saint-Germain that supports our new book, A New World Awakens and accompanies the Home Study Course.

You can listen to it by clicking the following link, or you can read the transcript, below:

This exercise is about a perceived need that many people have to keep climbing the ladder, or mountain, of spiritual attainment. The channeled exercise asks this question, “Do you have to find more and more spiritual things to do with your life in order to feel that you are a spiritual person? In order to live with the Truth About You — that you are a Child of God, and God, also?”



In Chapter 2 of our book, A New World Awakens, Saint-Germain talks about this. He talks about the illusion of spiritual attainment.

Saint-Germain says that, “[the illusion of needing to climb higher] always places the appreciation of who you are right now, just out of your reach.” He suggests that you may never fully realize the Truth About You, if you think you have to do something especially spiritual in order to BE Who You Really Are.

We hope that you enjoy this exercise.

Here again is the link to the audio file:

If you would also like to read the written transcript of this guided exercise with Saint-Germain, here it is:

“Let us talk for a moment about being in a new place of Truth.

“You have finally come to understand that living as your Soul does is your desire for this lifetime. You realize that this is the ultimate purpose of living on Earth for you. Any other desire is either a distraction from this, or else complements your desire for a New Life.

“You desire to discover more of Who You Really Are.

“You are so excited about this new discovery in your life, that you are bubbling over with enthusiasm. You have found a new sense of purpose. You feel it deeply, and your desire is growing.

“But then what happens?

“After a day or two, or perhaps a week or more, you find yourself crashing down again; falling back into your old way of doing things.

“Because you aren’t always clear about what is happening in these cases, your ego will try to step in and give you an answer. It will tell you, ‘Let’s try again, Dear. Let’s climb that mountain once again.’ And so you begin again.

“So, this time you undertake your ascent with even greater enthusiasm. You renew your journey of spiritual attainment with the hope that this time, you will find that elusive place of freedom, joy, certainty, and truth. And what happens?

“You climb and you fall again: Once, twice, and some times, even more often that this.

“As you continue repeating this experience of ‘climbing upward’ and then ‘falling back,’ – of ‘almost making it’ and then ‘failing again,’ – your trust begins to fade and your enthusiasm for the journey subsides. You get tired.

“‘Why is this happening to me?’ you might ask.

“Perhaps it is because you don’t want to climb the mountain over and over again. You may just want to be on the top of it – to just be there, and rest in that place of bliss.

“Well, how did you manage to fall off that mountain in the first place? Ask yourself this.

“Was it because of your doubt and fears?

“Could it be that even as you were about to reach the top of the mountain, you couldn’t believe that this was true? That your journey was almost done? That you were going to succeed and realize your desire at last? Soon you began to doubt yourself, and maybe even doubt the whole journey that you had taken. Does this sound familiar?

“Well… let’s see now. Let’s pause for a moment and consider this situation.

“Perhaps there’s an alternative to climbing the mountain of spiritual attainment that you haven’t considered before. Perhaps ‘efforting’ and striving are not necessary after all. Maybe you can be done with this, once and for all. How does this sound to you?

“How would you feel if I told you that you don’t have to climb that mountain in order to feel bliss?

“What if I told you that you don’t need to attain a higher vantage point to see the Truth About You?

“Yes, dear friends. We invite you now to feel this. Feel this deeply.

“Are you ready to let go of your climbing?

“Are you prepared to release the need to go higher, or to be better than you are right now?

“Are you ready to let go of ‘trying’? Can you see that all your ‘efforting’ only reinforces in your mind the mistaken belief that you must ‘do something’ in order to Be Who You Already Are?

“If your answer is ‘Yes,’ then we invite you now to stop. Please, stop trying. Stop wanting to ‘do more.’ Stop your climbing. Lay down your backpack, and all the provisions you have carried to survive your ascent. They aren’t necessary.

“Take off your boots and allow your feet the rest they deserve. Stop, and breathe deeply. Breathe, and allow your mind to come to a place of relaxation.

“Let your Soul be the guide in your life now. Stop now, and surrender completely. Fall gently into the arms of your Soul, and welcome the love It has for you.

“Allow your Soul to be the guiding light, and the guiding force in your life now. It won’t push you. It will take you into expansion. And so, you will stop trying to reach something that is always out of reach.

“Instead, embrace the certainty of Oneness with your Soul, and with God.

“Feel the peace, the comfort, and the ease that come from knowing you don’t have to ‘do anything’ to attain this Great Being. It is Who You Are!

“Be one with your Self. Be one with your Soul. Be one with God.

“And now give birth to this wonderful New You in your life. Love it, and support it, even as you are loved and supported by It.

“Indeed. It is my pleasure to surround you, my friends, in this joyful moment of your awakening.
“I Am Saint-Germain.”
