Ascended Master Students Gather in LA


In July, I attended my first gathering of Ascended Master students and spiritual seekers in LA for five days, listening as Kim Michaels served as messenger for a number of Ascended Masters to speak to us. It was the most uplifting and enlightening experience I have ever had because we were not there for anything less than to help the planet and all its people.

Attendees flew in from across the U.S. and other continents to be there. I made many new friends from the U.S., Canada, Korea, Australia, Ukraine, Denmark, Estonia, Romania and Africa. I met an architect, two college professors, a retired labor and delivery nurse, a civil engineer, a writer, a psychologist and a talk radio host and several college students. The ages ranged from young adults to seniors.


We listened to the Masters address world peace, the economy, our personal spiritual development, love, life’s challenges, and how to make a real difference in the world. We received truly unique insights, meaningful encouragement and a deep and abiding sense of peace and well-being that stayed with us well after the last session. I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face for days – nor did I want to.

For much of the weekend, we were in the unseen but definitely palpable presence of the Ascended Masters:  Gautama Buddha, Jesus, Mother Mary, St. Germain, Archangel Michael, and the God and Goddess of Love. These beings, who have never abandoned humanity, gave talks that encouraged and comforted us, and challenged us to work with the Mother Light to raise the planet by raising our consciousness, and thus raising all on the planet. Simultaneously, we received Light – much Light. It was the best high, ever.


After I got home, I emailed several attendees to ask why they were drawn to the teachings of the Masters as experienced through Kim and his websites, books and recordings. Here are some of their responses:

“When I discovered the ARJ [] site and started to read the answers given on different topics, I immediately felt I came in contact with a higher kind of knowledge and wisdom. The most significant thing while reading the answers was that not only my desire for knowledge was satisfied, but my entire soul and heart were filled with light, with energy of a higher vibration. In that moment, I knew that there is truth here and I can trust it.” – Iulian D.

“I was in the presence of Ascended Master consciousness in a mystery school many years ago. It didn’t take me long to recognize ‘the voice’ of the Ascended Masters – their words resonate as truth from within. I am so happy to be studying again as an Ascended Master student.” Charles T.

“When I first found Jesus’ dictations, I could hardly believe such a wondrous thing could be true. I prayed that I not be gullible, but I soon found that the readings were like letters from a dear old friend, bringing back warm memories.” – Jane R.

“I was a seeker of truth all of my life. I believe I was led step-by-step to many different teachings as I was ready for them. With the others, it was typically a matter of months before I felt the push to look for something different. I’ve been with ARJ now for nine years and while I still look occasionally, I’ve truthfully found nothing that compares.” – Tom M.

“[This] was the first conference I ever attended and I am happy that I did. Seeing Kim and hearing him made a great difference for me. I used to receive invitations and awards from organizations and people who claimed to give spiritual life skills advice, which they did not have. They even hid their addresses and made everything a secret. That is over and I see and talk with real people now, people who are real and stand for truth and spiritual/divine power.” – Bongfen F.


“One thing that has deeply resonated with me is the insistence of the Ascended Masters to put our attention upon the ‘beam in our own eye.’ Although I grew up in a Christian church, this teaching, although found in the Bible, was never explained nor given the attention like it has been by the Ascended Masters. It has allowed me to see I have control over my own life.” – Erick H.

“I have been a participant at many new age studies & events & found them to be filled with ‘love & light’ which was nice to be around but I found affirmations and white lighting everything & denial of anything that was not ‘love & light” didn’t clear out or address deep unworthiness in me and/or the behaviors of the people I met. Christianity was my upbringing & didn’t answer the questions I had & kept me in that state of trying to be ‘good’ & seeking approval from others as to what that meant, which didn’t bring me peace & happiness either. The teachings through Kim Michaels provide a truth – that there is darkness in us – but it’s not who we really are – and gives tools that work to strip these negative behaviors away. This is the only form of teaching/spirituality that has given me acceptance of myself & the path & peace & a real sense of worth.” – Sharon F.

Big Hug

The dictations are direct when it comes to addressing dark forces and astral beings, as this is a seldomly discussed topic in the spiritual and New Age communities. The Ascended Masters here are very open, blunt, and have nothing to hide. Therefore they will not ignore or skirt around  this issue in the manner that other ‘highly advanced channeled beings’ do.” – Wendy N.

“For me personally, I follow this path because it provides simple teachings, tools and exercises that have brought me an understanding of why I am here, what I can do, how to do it and a deep inner connection to the real me that no church or institution has ever provided, a truth that resonates in my heart.” – Susan V.

“I know the teachings through Kim are right on, because I know how I was led to them and I feel it in my heart. They help me in a very practical way to adjust my thinking so that I can adjust my consciousness and perspective on myself, the world and life.” – Rosemarie R.

“I have been attending these conferences since 2008, every single one in many parts of the world. Why? Because I know that I am on planet Earth to serve all life by being an instrument that God can use to do works through me as he did through Jesus. When people are gathered together of their own accord and free will, then Jesus himself continues his works of Love through us and to know Him as He really is, is ‘to be’ all that I can be. The only way to know God is to be God-in-Action right here on Earth, for when God said ‘whom shall I send?’ there was only one single answer, ‘Send me Lord! I will go and be the open door that no man can shut,’ and for me this is reality.” – Sandy S.
