The Ascension Spiral Staircase in Santa Fe


Joseph’s Ladder

Have you seen the miraculous spiral staircase in Santa Fe? Do you know what an ascension spiral is and how the spiral staircase relates to an ascension spiral? 

The ascension spiral is shown in many such universal stories as Jacob’s Ladder, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel. These well-known children’s stories relate the soul’s ascent through a series of spiral structures. The hero is taken from lower levels of consciousness to his Higher Self, also called the Christ Self.

The Story of the Spiral Staircase

We observe a similar pattern in the spiral staircase of the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The story regarding this staircase began when Bishop Jean Baptiste Lamy started a letter-writing plea for priests, brothers, and nuns to preach and teach in the new territory of Santa Fe.

The Sisters of Loretto from Kentucky responded with seven sisters agreeing to make the laborious trek to Santa Fe. The Loreto Chapel was built and patterned after King Louis IX’s Sainte-Chapelle in Paris.

After the completion of the chapel choir loft, the sisters discovered that the architect had not provided a way to get to it. He forgot.

Experts all concluded that access to the loft would have to be via a ladder. Building a staircase would interfere with the interior space of the Chapel.

To find a solution to the loft problem, the sisters gave a 9-day novena to Saint Joseph, the patron saint of carpenters. On the ninth day of prayer, a man appeared at the Chapel with a donkey and a toolbox looking for work. 

Six months later, an elegant circular staircase was completed, and the carpenter disappeared without receiving pay. The sisters concluded that it must have been Saint Joseph, answering their prayers.

The Design

The staircase has two 360 degree turns and no visible means of support. It is said that the staircase was built with only wooden pegs. The stairway’s design was innovative for the time, and even today, experts are still perplexed with some of the design concepts. 

We believe that the Ascended Master Saint Germain,* who was Saint Joseph in the incarnation as father of Jesus, appeared to the nuns and built the staircase as a representation of the ascension spiral. 

That it may have been Saint Germain is suggested in a dictation by Saint Germain on April 8, 1984. He said:

“You may imagine that you are building a staircase with Saint Joseph, the miraculous spiral staircase made without hands. Beloved ones, when the hour comes, the soul, as the bride veiled in garments white, will ascend this spiral.”

The spiral staircase has 33 steps. This represents the 33 steps of initiation that need to be passed before you can ascend to your Higher Self (‘go to heaven’), also called Father or the Voice of the Conscience. 

The seven sisters (of Loretto) represent the seven gates to the Higher Self. The seven gates represent seven ways of gaining mastery over the four planes of matter as another requirement to ascend.

An Ascension Spiral

One of the ways that mankind is able to earn their ascension today is through the use of the violet flame. The Ascended Master Saint Germain delivered the dispensation of the Violet Forgiving Flame to mankind on earth. Because of this dispensation, each soul can invoke violet light to consume karmic records that tie the soul to the earth and re-embodiment. 

When a soul invokes this violet flame through affirmations and chanting, she often can balance enough karma to ascend to her Higher Self in the soul’s current embodiment.

There is a cosmic dispensation that dictates that once we transmute 51% of our karma, we can qualify for the ascension. This means that we do not have to return to a physical body to balance more karma.

Once a soul is ready to make her ascension, the ascension spiral starts surrounding her. It is white. It looks like the spiral staircase, but instead, the color is radiant white. (See an actual ascension spiral in the photo to the left. It was seen over Alice Boscoe.)

Albuquerque’s yearly Balloon Fiesta is another ascension symbol in New Mexico. We get to see all the steps of how a balloon ascends. A measured amount of hot air is put into the balloon that will give it enough lift to get off the ground and ascend to the desired float altitude. As the balloon rises, the hot air inside the balloon pushes the aircraft upwards.

A similar process happens to the individual that is about to ascend. The Light within their chakras and auric forcefield increases and builds up to such an extent that the soul ascends in consciousness, moving from the heart chakra, the level of the Christ Consciousness, to the level of their True Self, also called I AM Presence and the Christ Self. At that moment, the soul has returned to who they truly are, and they have become an ascended master.

The Goddess of Beauty, also called Lady Master Ruth Hawkins, is an Ascended Lady Master who lived in Albuquerque from 1988-1995. How interesting that she made her ascension during the 1995 Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque.
