Question: Is it possible for students of the ascended masters, to use the teachings and promote them on a commercial basis as a business activity, such as in a practice of spiritual psychology offered to clients?
Answer from Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.
Well, I will answer that, because it’s clear that it is indeed possible and allowed, and the masters, in fact, encourage that. So, you have very wide freedom. I mean, you don’t have copyright on ideas. If you use certain ideas that the masters have given, you can use them together with other forms of therapy, coaching, whatever it may be. There are already some people who are doing workshops and who are using some of the ideas of the masters without tying it into the ascended master teachings. In other words, it’s promoting an idea that’s universal rather than requiring people to believe in ascended master teachings.
If you go back when I was in the Summit Lighthouse, the culture there was that the most important thing was to promote not just ascended master teachings, but also the Summit Lighthouse as the source of those teachings and the messenger for the Summit Lighthouse as the only messenger.
There you had this culture that in order to receive any particular ideas from the ascended masters, people first have to accept that the ascended masters exist, that they have messengers on earth, and Elizabeth Claire Profit is the only messenger, and the Summit Lighthouse is the only organization representing the masters. That was a very, very big hurdle to overcome, given how the whole culture was and all the many rules that were there. But today, we are in the Aquarian Age, and it’s a matter of bringing these ideas out in whatever context it’s appropriate – wherever it can help question something. It doesn’t have to be tied back to the ascended masters or to me.
I usually say that if you are taking something from an ascended master dictation (or a whole dictation) putting it on your website, then you just need to let them know that it’s copyrighted material so that people don’t get tempted to publish it. In other words, I’m not saying you can take the masters dictations and freely publish them in books, then we need to have some kind of publishing agreement. But in terms of the ideas and teachings, you’re free to use them any way you can.
