Ascended Masters

Legends, Myths & Tales

Perhaps the most intriguing legend associated with our mountain concerns Guy Ballard’s claim to have met the Ascended Master Saint Germain in 1930 while hiking on the mountain. Ballard’s encounter, as well as subsequent interactions with Ascended Masters, were published under the pseudonym of Godfre Ray King in a series of books that now serve (along with The Bible) as the texts for the “I AM” religious activity …

The Origin of the Lemurian Legend

Perhaps the most popular example of Mount Shasta lore, and a legend involving the first claim by non-Native Americans for a spiritual connection with the mountain, concerns the mystical brotherhood believed to roam through jeweled corridors deep inside the mountain. According to Miesse, “In the mid-19th Century paleontologists coined the term “Lemuria” to describe a hypothetical continent, bridging the Indian Ocean, which would have explained the migration of lemurs from Madagascar to India. Lemuria was a continent which submerged and was no longer to be seen. By the late 19th Century occult theories had developed, mostly through the theosophists, that the people of this lost continent of Lemuria were highly advanced beings. The location of the folklore ‘Lemuria’ changed over time to include much of the Pacific Ocean …

A Dweller on Two Planets

If there are sermons in stones and books in the running brooks, then Tehastel’s craggy pile a noble library, in veritas. In it the vastness, the grandeur and the solemnity of nature are expressed in mystic numbers carved in the eternal granite. On those stony, stratified pages, Nature’s students may read the doings of the gnomes, mother earth’s treasurers. Here, too, in characters of lava is writ Pluto’s kingly record. Aye! ‘tis indeed Nature’s own volume, bound between covers of snow and ice; and marking the treasures thereof is a silvery ribbon whose ends hang out of the vast tome at the north on end, at the south the other the name of the one “McCloud” river, and of the other the “Sacramento.” Again, two lesser markers are in this sublime epic, viz.: “Pitt” and “Shasta” rivers. A volume of poems should bear poetic title; so shall this. Can we bestow one more appropriate than the aboriginal appellation “Ieka” a name retained and used by the earliest white men whose eye gazed on that land, far northern California land of romance, of gold and of adventure; retained through that intuitive recognition of eternal fitness, which pioneer and trapper have ever, in all lands, exhibited toward existent nomenclature. For years the noble mountain bore, for white as for aborigine, the name it had fetched from out the night of time, as its sister peak far to the north Mt. Rainier retained its primal christening of “Tacoma” …

Telos: Underground City of Mount Shasta

Telos is the alleged Lemurian underground city of Mount Shasta. Mysterious stories about an underground city were one factor that attracted me to live in Mount Shasta. I asked Steve Reynolds, the teacher of an English course on critical writing at the College of the Siskiyous, if I could use Telos as the subject of my special project. He granted my desire. In an informal survey I asked twenty people at the college, if they have heard about Telos of Mount Shasta. All told me that they had never heard of Telos. I have discovered very few inhabitants of Mount Shasta who have actually heard of Telos. Some told me that they doubt it exists. Only a tiny minority knew of Telos and had actual experiences with it. I seek to convince members of this audience that there is a conceivable possibility that Telos is a reality and in Mount Shasta a living legend …

A Fragment of the Ancient Continent of Lemuria

Scientific date and historical research have supplied abundant evidence that there existed at some prehistoric time a vast Southern Continent to which the name Lemuria has been aptly applied. The acceptance of the existence of such an area rationally accounts for many existing anomalies, and helps to clear a great many inexplicable difficulties in the evolution and distribution of organic life. It is calculated that this submerged Southern Continent flourished 18,000,000 years ago, and that California was the center of a civilization that antedates the Continent of Atlantis, by thousands of years. One who has made a deep study of the hoary antiquity of California, affirms that she was a high mountainous country, with fertile valleys, away back in the ages when the waves of the sea rolled over the remainder of the United States. That from her mountain peaks she has patiently seen, with ever watchful eye, the land to the east of her gradually rise, shaking the salt sea from its back. During the ages when the west and the south volcanic action had shaken the earth into fragments, until it become a prey to the devouring water, the glorious land of California remained as the only monument in this part of the world to testify to the ancient grandeur of the land and the high civilization to which it gave birth

Descendants of Lemuria

Nestled at the foot of a partially extinct volcano, protected from the hot sun of mid-day and the chilling breezes of the Pacific by the towering mountain there exists the strangest mystical village in the Western Hemisphere, without equal, perhaps, in the whole world. The last descendants of the ancient Lemurians, the first inhabitants of this earth, find seclusion protection and peace, in this unique village of their own creation. It seems hardly possible that there could be in America, and in California, a place, a village, a community of homes and industries, so secluded, so guarded and so difficult to locate, that in a hundred or more years only four for five strangers have passed within the sacred confines of the Armaiti, or invisible protective boundary of the village. For fifty years or more the natives of Northern California, and tourists, explorers and government officials have contributed facts, and some fancies, to the accumulating mass of evidence proving the existence of the “mystic village” (a name used by common agreement) and supplying the most astounding facts ever attributed to human beings. Tradition and the romantic tales of romantic California alone, will not account for the stories told by persons who witness strange sights in the vicinity of Mt. Shasta …

Lost Continent of Mu

It may be wondered what Churchward’s Mu has to do with Mt. Shasta. As many know, Harve Spencer Lewis, under the name of Wishar Spenle Cerve, founder of the Amorc Rosicrucians of San Jose, wrote two editions of a book he called “Lemuria”. In this book his map of Lemuria includes all of California and parts of Nevada and neighboring states. Churchward’s maps of Mu do not take in such a wide variety of territory, but much of his text has been adopted to the uses of Lewis. If this last statement is not true, the later publication of Lewis’s book over Churchward’s series (although involving only a few years, or even months) and the similarity in many of the statements in both books may be coincidences. Since people may confuse the two lost continents, it would be well to state that to all intents and purposes a continent of the great extent described in either book is not believed to have existed at any time by any recognized scientist …

Lemurians of Mt. Shasta

Northern California’s Mt. Shasta is an imposing presence in the landscape. A still active volcano it has, for the last 4500 years, erupted on average every 600 years- most recently about 200 years ago. Sulfurous hot springs and fumaroles rise to the surface of the mountain at a few locations and the mountain is continuously monitored by the US Geological Service for increasing activity because of a potential for a Mt. St. Helens type of eruption. It is also, according to local legend, home to an ancient race of people who make their home inside the mountain, emerging occasionally to interact with humans.

About Lemuria and Telos

The Lemurian Age took place approximately between the years 4,500,000 BC to about 12,000 years ago. Until the sinking of the continents of Lemuria and later of Atlantis, there were seven major continents on this planet. The lands belonging to the gigantic continent of Lemuria included lands now under the Pacific Ocean as well as Hawaii, the Easter Islands, the Fiji Islands, Australia and New Zealand. Also lands in the Indian Ocean and Madagascar. The Eastern coast of Lemuria also extended to California and part of British Columbia in Canada. For a very long time before the fall in consciousness, the Lemurians lived in a fifth dimensional frequency or dimension, and were able to switch back and forth from fifth to third at will, without any problem. It could be done whenever it was desired, by intension and the energies of the heart …
