5 Steps of Initiation. Part 1 Student and Chela
October 10, 2017
Hosted by Terry Canady and Thom Schumacher
When we desire to affiliate with the ascended masters, there are five levels of initiation through which we pass, the first being student. In this time of study, students read, listen and learn. Most initiates on the path of the ascended masters are students. At this level, the individual begins sorting and sifting in an earnest search to find the right teacher. It’s an exciting phase of the journey, but dangerous, too, for there are many teachers in the world. Some have more of the truth than others, and it can be difficult, until the student acquires sufficient discernment, to separate the wheat from the chaff. For protection, the sincere student is admonished to pray and ask for guidance. Once firmly on the path, the student graduates to chela, one who serves as a disciple of a master. In this guru-chela relationship, perhaps the culmination of lifetimes of searching, the chela receives important initiations, balances karma and seeks Christhood. Next week, Friend and Brother

Terry Canady, singer/songwriter, was raised in Des Moines, Iowa, and his performing and recording career has spanned nearly five decades. Recording a #1 hit record, “Mama Bear,” in Nashville, Tennessee in the early 1970s was the highlight of his career and eventually led to the creation of his own record and publishing company, Saint Adrian, through which he has produced a number of records and albums, most recently a patriotic CD titled “Give Me Liberty.” He continues to accept narration, commercial and voice-over work from his home in the beautiful Paradise Valley, just a few miles north of Yellowstone National Park.
Thom Schumacher is a copywriter, ex-seminarian, singer, percussionist, talker, plays a mean penny whistle, lyricist, RE broker and, most importantly, a student of the ascended masters. He has been gifted with an exceptional family, survived 3 marathons, navigated some very potent astrology (double Pisces!) and continuously juggles a myriad of creative challenges, not the least of which is hosting The OPEN DOOR. The threads that run through the crazy quilt of his life are love of God, Life, wife, family and gratitude for all the opportunities along the way to learn and grow.
