Normally it is each of you, my brethren, that seek me out for the purposes of letting go, eliminating, bringing forth the truth, the purity, the beauty of who you are in this process of going forward in your ascension process. Now, what is my role in this?
Serapis Bey, Master of the 4th Ray, the Ray of Ascension

Steve: Our guest today is Serapis Bey and I think, Linda, you have the meditation that he gave you on your web site?
Linda: That is correct. And in fact, I had sort of forgotten about it and he nudged me this morning as I was getting ready. There is a meditation that he gave during a workshop that I did a couple years ago. And it is an ascension meditation, taking place at the Ascension Chamber in Luxor. And it’s actually a beautiful, beautiful meditation. I went back and listened to it and it’s very powerful.
You know I haven’t heard from Serapis Bey that often, but when he shows up, it’s always monumental. You know, he’s a no-nonsense kind of being. He doesn’t mince words, and when he has something to say, it comes forth strong and powerful. So, yes, he has suggested to me that after listening to what he has to share with us today, he would really like people to be listening to this meditation.
Steve: Well, very good. While you’re making your transition, let me say a few words about Serapis Bey, because we haven’t had him on the show before and some people may not be aware of him. He is the Master of the Fourth, or Ascension Ray – the Ascension Ray of the Mother – the Hierarch of the Luxor Temple. In one of his past lives, he was reputed to have been the Spartan King Leonidas who stopped the Persians at the Pass of Thermopylae, where he died. Leonidas has come to symbolize personal responsibility and self-discipline. We know him best as one of the three Ascended Masters, the other two being El Morya and Saint Germaine, who began many centuries ago what later became known as The Saint Germaine Trust.
He’s here today to extend the discussion we had last time with Archangel Michael about ascension. So, with that, I welcome Serapis Bey.
Serapis Bey: And I welcome you. Yes, I am Serapis Bey, known by many names, as have each of you my beloved friends. Yes, known as the great disciplinarian, as Master of the Fourth Ray. This is the Ray of Ascension. This is the Ray of Purity. This is the Ray of the White Crystalline essence and energy of the Mother that we have told this channel a long time ago is called Luminesa. I welcome you.
Normally, and it has been this way for an exceedingly long time, it is each of you, my brethren, that seek me out for the purposes of letting go, eliminating, bringing forth the truth, the purity, the beauty of who you are. And this has been the way in which I have worked with many of you in this process of going forward in your ascension process.
In your acceptance of the beauty and uniqueness, the wonder, magnificence of who you are; while eliminating through perseverance, through consistency, through self-discipline, through self-responsibility any sense of your ego, of your own uniqueness, of that sense that you are special in the human ego way of the old realm.
You are unique and special because you are an expression of the Mother, the Father, the One. And that expression is strictly and uniquely so that you can manifest the wonder and light of that purity and beauty: to go from a sense of singularity, to be transfigured into resurrection, to return to the Mother, Father, One.
Traditionally, and I am certainly one for tradition…traditionally this has been an arduous journey. For although I assist you in this rebalancing, it would be erroneous for me to pretend that it has not entailed a true devotion and a singularity of focus to go through this ascension process. Now you, each of you – and in this I speak to the entire collective, to all who currently sit upon Gaia – have made a very unusual decision. Yes, in December of 2012. And you made this decision and in that moment did release your sense of ego and individuality enough that you said collectively, as a unity consciousness, that we will go forth in our ascension one by one. No, as One.
I am ancient. You might say I have been at this for a long time in your reality or any reality. Never had I experienced, witnessed, or envisioned a decision of such magnitude and gratitude, a recognition of the connectedness between all of you. I have never seen or anticipated this.
Now, of course, the Mother, in Her wisdom, always knows the unfoldment of Her Plan. But, it has certainly shifted how I work in my service to Her. Now, in that, in the intervening years, I have stood back and I have still continued to work with many of you, one by one by one. Occasionally, you have come with your sacred partner. But, even in sacred union and partnership, the diligence, the balance, the stepping forward is and has been individual.
But I have also worked with the collective quietly, which is my want. Humans have used far too many words and ignored the strength of spirit. But although there have been many words in these intervening years; particularly you the light workers, love holders, have gained in strength and a sense of discipline. And you have gone forward and I have worked with you silently and sometimes not so silently.
You see, endurance and fortitude and prudence are required – yes, required – for ascension. And you say to me, “But, Serapis, I like to be in the flow.” Well, there is no room for laziness, spiritual or physical. So when you say that you wish to be in the flow, there is still a requirement for attention to your being, your responsibilities, and for steering the vessel, as it were. You cannot abandon that. And I extol your virtues, because you have not. You have paid attention. You have relinquished a great deal of ego because there is no room for self-aggrandizement. The only thing that we adore is the unified Mother, the Father, the One.
Now, why do I speak of this? As Michael, Mi-ka-el, has spoken to you, as the Mother herself deigns to speak to you, there is a new energy that penetrates your entire planet and this collective of One. So it is not individual, and yet, of course it is. But it is equally shared to all. And the Mother, in Her infinite and eternal wisdom, has asked all of us to share, to expand, to extend, to unify, and to penetrate the entire planet with our unique expression of Her love.
This is a gift beyond measure. I do not think that many of you fully comprehend what this means. You could no more resist this flow of energy…like a Tsunami of One. In fact, that is a good name, is it not? You cannot resist it. So your method of not merely survival, but of taking true measure, advantage of this energy that we all send you, is to conjoin with it. Yes, in prudence and balance, fortitude and endurance, acceptance, allowance, thanksgiving, gratitude, and purity.
Now, what is my role in this? And believe you me, I have asked the Mother this many times throughout many, many, many, many, many, many centuries. I assist with ascension and there have always been committed adepts who have come to me. But in this shift – because that is what you are in the middle of – my role also changes. You, my beloved students and disciples, for those who are brave enough to even approach, have always come to me in and out of form. It matters not. But, at the beckoning of the Mother, I come to you. So you see, this shift, this ascension, this process that you are undertaking, shifts things not only for humanity, but for many of us as well. Now we are fully capable and willing and happy, joyous, to do this. But it is certainly a change of venue. There is nothing that I would not be honored to do for our divine Mother. And, because each of you are of the Mother, of Her pattern, there is nothing I will not do for you.
But I do not do it to you. There has been much discussion in the past several years with many of us and the Archangels, about the nature of sacred partnership, sacred union. And repeatedly we have said to you that we are in sacred partnership. Very few of you have the time or have taken the time or have the inclination or have sought out the insight to truly know what this means. Now let me tell you. I do not do this for you. I do not take you and simply flip you through the ascension process. I will not do that. There is an awakening of your will, the elimination of ego, the opening of heart, the alignment with divine mind and heart and will. And all of these aspects are necessary for ascension. So, “What then,” you say, Serapis, “do you do or help us with?”
I come to you as brother, as one who has walked the planet many times. And yes, I am the disciplinarian, but only insofar as it brings you to the place of purity and power and the acceptance of responsibility for your sacred self, because that is your promise to the Mother. So now I come to you in sacred union and partnership to offer you my assistance.
All of humanity – I come to you to assist you in the deeper letting go, in the deeper elimination of all aspects of your being that are not a crystalline, clear alignment with your divinity and the Mother’s divinity. I will guide you, I will support you, I will walk with you, I will correct you, because it is not of punishment. That concept, and certainly that behavior does not exist on our side. But if you are headed consistently, or even now and then in the wrong direction, if you are praying and praying and working, and at times even struggling to come into that alignment that you can simply walk right through the portal and you think you are doing your best, but you are erring in one way or another, I will correct you because I love you, because I honor you. Not because I wish to point out that you are in the wrong. That is futile. I would correct you, and I will correct you if you ask me to, so that you do not waste your energy and your heart energy in pursuing something that is not going to get you where you want to be.
There is every gradation of heart consciousness right now upon your planet, and many doors that you have been waiting for, for a long time, have been flung wide open. Now we are adjusting and helping you adjust to these new ways of being. Now, for those who are completely oblivious, there is a more subtle penetration. But I am also speaking not only to Gaians but to those of you that are awake.
You’re saying, “Well, what can I count on you for?” You can count on me to be fully and completely consistent. You can count on me to point out and correct when you misstep. But not only to say, “Oh no, you are doing it wrong,” but to gently, and sometimes not so gently, redirect your energy.
Why I do this is to bring forth purity and beauty, love. You’ve come to this planet as the implementers of the Mother’s Plan. Now we are part of that implementation team, but in a very different way, because this ascension is in physicality. This ascension is remaining on Earth and creating and anchoring Nova Earth – a beautiful paradigm that I would and in many ways did manifest when I was in form. So I know the diligence, the attention, the hard work that this has entailed.
So yes, I come to tell you that I am bi-locating mightily. I am still in the chamber at Luxor. But I am also in every town, city, metropolis, countryside of your planet, working with everybody. I do this for the Mother, but I also do it for you.
Those of you who choose to work with me, who take my extended hand, have a deep level of commitment, valor, bravery. So why do you do this? Because it speeds things up: that your yearning, your determination to ascend and to lead the many is so strong, your commitment is so deep, your eagerness is beyond what humans think of. That is why you do this. And with that, that is why I accept you.
It requires balance, self-responsibility, and discipline. You cannot say I will do it one day and then slack off for the rest of the year. I do not work like that. Ascension does not work like that.
Now, dearest friend Steve, where do you wish to begin?
Steve: Serapis, your discussion has been most unusual among people that we’ve had on the show. Up ‘til now it’s emphasized what I may be permitted to use “the divine feminine,” which is to let go, to flow, to drop resistance, to surrender. And yours is very much the voice of the divine masculine – use of will, the exertion, effort, discipline. So it’s a very different perspective you’re giving us.
Let me ask this question. Either in ascension or in the stewardship of the Mother’s abundance, in either field, your words apply. That we need to show discipline, we need to be consistent in our practice, et cetera. Can you talk to us more about this whole faculty of will? About where light workers are with their exertion of will? And any changes we need to make into the future as we either go into ascension or into stewardship?
Serapis Bey: I would be pleased to talk to that. And yes, my tone, my energy, is significantly different from many who have come forth. Let me begin with an observation, which is grounded in truth. I bring to your attention the value, the importance of the divine masculine and the masculine. As you ascend there should be, and yes I say “should” – should be no differentiation between those two.
I am a servant, so deeply honored to serve the Mother. But what do you think the divine masculine does? Now, very often, in these discussions, which are correct by the way, there is discussion of the divine Godhead, shall we say, of being the unspeakable, unknowable, unmovable. But the masculine serves the feminine, feeds the feminine, infuses the feminine, so that that movement, that eternal infinite creation takes place.
Now, the divine feminine in that creation, in that movement, in that speech, serves the divine masculine. It is the balance. It is the reciprocal nature of all.
Too often, in the history of humanity, which is long and bloody, the sense of the masculine traits have become bastardized, have become abused. And that is part of the self discipline to never fall…never fall…into the patterns of authoritarian control, or greed or lust – abuse of power. And that is part of what you learn at my temple.
You are entering a phase of time where it is the fullness of our Mother’s energy re-anchoring upon this planet, and actually much farther than that…but we will focus on this Gaia. But what has also happened in this spiritual awakening of many, and now I speak particularly of light workers and love holders, is there has been a somewhat shying away. And I am speaking in generalities, so do not feel, unless it is totally applicable to you, that I am in any way chastising you, because I am not; I am explaining. Many of you have backed up from what you have thought of as those masculine traits, and moved into what I have suggested – the flow, the surrender, the acceptance. All of these are completely necessary for stewardship and for ascension.
But so is the balance with the divine masculine. How action from your heart consciousness, from the love, comes into form is through will. How you demonstrate the power, in the purest sense, to be a steward, to assume that responsibility, is through that sense of self-responsibility. If you do not have self-discipline, self-responsibility – not in the sense of self-aggrandizement, but of commitment and knowing the truth of your place in this grand unfoldment – then you cannot be a responsible steward. So that balance of both is absolutely necessary.
Action, with the new responsibilities coming to you, is necessary. Now, what has happened with humanity, male and female, is that when I speak of action and bringing into form the building, whether it is the temple at Luxor or a home for yourself, it requires action. Now, there has been a belief system that has come into form that action or attendance…because I will not use the word ‘work’…is somehow arduous or that it has to take a long time.
And none of that is of truth. But, it is the willingness and the will to be in alignment with truth, of Michael, of the Mother, of the beauty. Why would you create anything – whether it is a meal, or a cup of tea, or a city, or an institution, or a tradition – that is not of purity and beauty? But that requires the self-discipline to make sure that the self-aggrandizement isn’t creeping in.
Now I am not saying that there is only one vision of beauty or purity. There are many reflections and expressions of it and that is the unique beauty of each of you. But, when you are taking these actions in what you think is a balanced way, the beauty is a reflection of that part of your divinity and the Mother’s. It is the willingness to service. That is what stewardship is. And unless that is present, the blessings do not flow.
These blessings that you have talked about are given in a responsible way. That was our agreement when we have formed this, and many by the way, several trusts, that they would be divinely patterned, divinely inspired and a reflection of divinity in form. So, there is no room for what people have thought of as the old masculine, of the ego.
There is work to be done. And that is why I have said to you, if you are going slightly askew, then I will correct you. And it will be gentle, and then it will be stronger, because it is important in our partnership that we listen to each other. I do not speak or whisper simply to hear my voice. I have no need of that, for it is far more wonderful to simply listen to the Mother. But when the Mother has asked me to step forward in this way, and teach and model and mentor the self-responsibility and the balance, I do so.
So is my voice one that you are not used to hearing? Yes. But, is it part of the balance that already exists and exists in you and of you? And so both sides, not either/or, but the cooperative partnership of your divine masculine and your divine feminine. But, what moves, what moves you, what speaks through you, what anchors on the planet is the divine feminine, infused and held by the will and the spirit of the divine masculine. Both are necessary. Do you understand what I say?
Steve: Yes, I do. Oftentimes, I don’t follow up on something a person in your position says, Serapis, and I kick myself afterwards. And I don’t want to do that here. Please, could you talk to us about the work that remains to be done? And I’m talking specifically of light workers, of ascension way showers, financial way showers.
Serapis Bey: Examine your motives. Now, this is something, whether I come to you or you come to me, it will always be our starting point. Are your motives – and I do not adopt an accusatory tone, this is simply the way I speak – are your motives, is your motivation of purity? You have seen upon your planet how money and power have corrupted. How it can easily, very easily, lead to egoic thoughts, feelings, and expressions. And that is the road to hell. (Chuckle) Not that hell exists.
The motive of being a steward, whether it is a pathfinder to ascension, a pathfinder to new institutional ways, pathfinder of new communities, a pathfinder of new financial wherewithal, the motivation is actually quite clear. It is this humble, exalted, desire to serve the Mother. And in that expression of service is to serve your fellow humans as well as Gaia and all the kingdoms.
If it is – and I am not suggesting, by the way, that this means that your own personal wherewithal is not attended to, because if you are not taking care of yourself, this is self-responsibility – if you are not taking care of yourself, if you are not taking care of your family, and in this I mean not only your biological family, those you have chosen to incarnate with, but also your soul family, your soul community. If you are not taking care of that, then you are not being responsible and self-disciplined.
But, what is your motivation? Is it based on an ego desire to be important, to be boss, to have power of the worst kind over others? Or is it in your own discerning, humble way to truly serve? So the first thing that is worked on is the mental, emotional, ego needs, because there is no room for this.
Think of it this way. In a hierarchy, which is often how humans have thought, you want to put yourself at the very bottom of that hierarchy because that is what service is. Now, in your traditional thinking – thinking that I have to be at the top because I have to lead – leadership is patterning the right behaviors that are true to the Mother, the right actions that are true to the Mother, Father, One. So we start with this sense of “Oh, I’m going to have money. Oh, I am going to have power. Oh, I am leading the way.” Now if it’s because it makes you feel important or does it make you feel truly important because you are fulfilling your promise, your responsibility to your sacred self and to the Mother.
Because there is a fine line, and this how humanity has gotten off track – that you want to be in charge, or you want to be more important than your neighbor down the street. No being, not on our side or yours, not throughout any multi-verse, is more important than another.
That includes me, El Morya, Jesus Sananda, Maitreya, none of us. You cannot assume this. There is no room for ego. And this is something that you must, MUST, be vigilant of and that you must give each other permission to observe and if it is in need of course correction, to speak of in saedor, in kindness, in balance, in love. But if you see truly, not from a place of anger or mistrust, but if you see one of your dear family going off track, then of course, out of love you point it out to them. Then the choice is theirs. You’re handing them over to me. But this is work.
Now, the second thing that you work on is consistency. I hear many of you say to me – you don’t know you’re speaking to me. Sometimes you just think you are speaking to each other. You say, “Oh, I can’t meditate.” And then you just don’t bother trying. Well, that’s the same as saying, “Well, I can’t run the 10K and therefore I am going to stop walking.” It is absurd.
This is self-discipline. And meditation takes many forms, and I am using that as an example because it is a popular one. So, my question to you is, do you consistently give yourself a path, not a sense of path, not a sense of path as in “I do not wish to harm myself, I love myself because I am love and I am the love of the Mother. And the Mother loves through me.” But if you are in genuine relationship, think of your partner, your spouse, your best friend and you say, “I am in this deep, abiding friendship. Oh, and by the way, I can’t call you. I can’t talk to you. No, I don’t have time to see you, but I love you.” Well, is this real? Of course not.
You are lying to yourself. So where is your consistency? Where is your self-discipline? There is a belief… you have come to think of discipline as punishing, controlling, some form of pain, or that you have done something wrong. That is not discipline. That is cruelty. Think of discipline and self-discipline as consistency. Are you consistent in what you think and feel? Where you place your attention and your actions? Or are you all over the map, as you would put it?
And, if you are, the disciplinary action is not, my beloved friends, to beat yourself up. It is to gently take my hand again and bring yourself to the center, to stillpoint if you can, and simply refocus. So this is another area of work.
And, in that, look at your actions. “Do my actions and behaviors and interactions match the truth of what I am really hoping to achieve, that fulfillment with the Mother?” Your biggest area, can I say, where you can improve somewhat, is in the treatment, thoughts, feelings, actions, anchoring that you have of yourself. Now there is still some more mayhem on your planet. But if you bring the attention back to yourself, “Am I being pure? Am I purity? Am I beauty? Am I love? Am I luminescent joy?” You’re very hard on yourselves.
And, think of this. Yes, in your lifetime there have been many, many challenges…I do not deny or minimize at all. But in the treatment, the feelings, the knowing of yourself; you see, all those control and hurting disciplines, they come from ego, who is very eager to maintain control. But, the Mother, our beloved Mother, is nothing but gentleness. The reason we do not tend to speak of the qualities of the Mother in terms of will, for example, is that it is not necessary.
When She dreams, or creates, there’s such gentle love that you do not feel the necessity for will-directed action. So when you are looking at yourself, is the balance there of the gentlest love that simply puts the will into place and allows it to flow smoothly, gracefully, beautifully? Discipline and self-love is not about cutting off your arm to show that you intend to serve. It is about loving your arm and loving yourself. There is work to be done there.
Steve: Serapis, I have squeezed every minute out of the hour to give to you. Is there anything you want to say in closing, since we have reached the top of the hour?
Serapis Bey: I have declared myself as a being that is traveling your planet. If you whisper my name, if you approach me in Luxor, I am at your disposal. It is my dearest desire that you will call me. Farewell.
