The 7 Stages consciousness

Where did this paradigm originate?

It was first delineated as such in the Law of One books, also known as the Ra Material published by L/L Research in 1981. These books are transcripts of trance channeling sessions held with a “sixth density social memory complex” that called itself Ra, who explained the concepts of density, Service-to-Self, Service-to-Others, and related topics. Many of these concepts resembled those of hermetic, gnostic, eastern, and other spiritual traditions, just stated in a more technical and complete manner.

Over a decade later, another group using an Ouija board made contact with another “sixth density social memory complex” calling itself the Cassiopaeans. The resulting Cassiopaean Transcripts (1994-2002) greatly expanded upon the Ra Material system and introduced the acronyms STS and STO.

Both channeling conduits were brought to an end by sustained attrition by dark occult forces aiming to corrupt, disrupt, or close the conduits (see Epilogue to the Law of One books and my Cassiopaea warning). Channeling is dangerous and most channeling out there is disinformation. Yet, despite the dangers of channeling, with high quality material the risks are offset by the reward of novel information that simply cannot be found in other “safer” material. For example, an academic study on the UFO phenomenon might represent the hardest proof but weakest novelty, spanning hundreds of pages but barely saying anything deep due to the timid nature of such modes of inquiry. Good channeling, on the other hand, is maximum novelty but minimum proof. The proof comes from its effectiveness when applied and tested, rather than from footnotes and citations.

But due to the inevitable presence of corruption and bias in channeled material, even with the best, one must extract from these sources the logical, relevant, and corroborative information. Doing so reveals a coherent paradigm that is fundamentally gnostic. Gnosticism, Hermeticism, Manichaeism, Buddhism, Zorostrianism, esoteric Christianity, Toltec Shamanism, etc. are variations on the same paradigm. If one does a comparative study of these, one may conclude that their otherworldly sources may be the same that inspired the Ra and Cassiopaean texts.

Densities Density is a term that has come into common usage to refer to the levels/states of Human consciousness. For example, the lower the density… the slower the vibratory rate and the less capacity for the expression of consciousness. The higher densities have a faster vibratory and more ability to express consciousness in its entirety. This is what drives the Engine of Evolution.

There are infinite Universes called Octaves. The Octave we are currently inhabiting is one of infinite Octaves in our Universe. The evolution of consciousness within each Octave works in 7 major stages or Densities.If we go back to the formation of our solar system you can see what happened at the beginning of the formation of the first density of Consciousness.
What is density?

Density refers to how much mass (energy) is in an amount of space. For our understanding, the “mass” is really information (or, if you wish, consciousness), and the “space” is a measure of connectedness of information. Information (or consciousness) is contained within energy as possible expressions, including how likely these are (how much perceptive energy is required to collapse probability of an event into a perceptible state).

The connectedness is the interactional “closeness” of all things, similar to how closeness in our physical world is location, connectedness takes into account higher dimensionality, where a physical location or other means of interaction is found.

We understand each threshold of consciousness as a level of vibration. As vibrations get higher, more is experienceable.

Density #1. Awareness

Represented By: Root Chakra ~ Color Red
Description: The density where light weaves (spins tightly) into physical realty, through atoms and their interactions. 1st density also includes the primal configurations of energy structures. This can be seen in the structural possibilities of atoms, including molecules, lattices, and larger still fractal atomic structures like the physical structure of galaxies.
Visual: Torus connected in strings
Conscious Experience: Expression, resonation, and crystallization. For the manifestation of the higher densities, they must go down and down. The most powerful manifestations reach all the way to this density, and are merging with the first density consciousness of atoms and other tight forms of light.
Examples: Crystals, Rocks, Fire, Wind, Electricity, Water (the elements)
Lesson: Existence as duality: oneness (through resonance) and separation through experiencing the push/pull (yin/yang if you prefer) that makes physical reality possible.

Evolution is a fundamental principle within the Universe. Everything in creation must be an organic, and authentic experience which means that everything must come through evolution. The 1st density is associated with awareness, the red chakra energy center, and the atomic body. The 1st density represents all organic matter which are the 4 elements of our planet Earth. Earth, Water, Fire, And Air.

As the Sun condensed into our star, planets began to form. Our planet began an evolution billions of years ago in a timeless state of being. After a few billion years of transformation, Earthly resources such as rock, magma, water, and air interacted with one another causing friction. The friction from this interaction eventually began to evolve consciousness into the second density.

Density #2. Growth And Movement

Represented By: Sacral Chakra ~ Color Orange
Description: Second density consciousness grows towards the infinite oneness, like a tree grows toward the Sun. This growth is an expansion.
Visual: Fractal Tree (the physical skeleton of a torus)(a “fractal tree” can be any energy system, a human, a planet, a plant)
Conscious Experience: Receiving plenty (from source) and growing into a personality through physical form and movement.
Examples: Plants, animal life, fungi, trees, Fruits and vegetables, etc. Pets are high/late 2nd density
Lesson: Growth toward Source (on Earth, Source is represented by the Sun) in plant life, and movement through awareness

This density is associated with the orange chakra energy center, and the chemical body. The 2nd density includes all biological life and organic matter that has autonomous movement all the way down from microbial life up to plants, and animals. In the 2nd density, consciousness becomes aware of different portions of itself communicating with one another. Through this communication, a second stage is reached where consciousness has learned the lessons of being-ness and now can begin to respond to its environment through this newly learned awareness.

During evolution, a realization of space and time consciousness takes on a new vehicle of exploration. The latest stage of second density would be animals that become pets. Dog, and cats. Domestic animals that live in our society. Through their interactions with humans; such as being given a name, boundaries and affection, the animal begins to develop a sense of self-awareness which allows 2nd density consciousness to begin evolving into the third density of consciousness.

Density #3. Self Awareness/Choice

Represented By: Solar Plexus Chakra ~ Color Yellow / Golden
Description: Self-Awareness. The density of consciousness as we experience it, with our reality filled with decisions,
Visual: Fractal Tree consciously deciding which branch to grow further
Conscious Experience: Self identification, expression, choices
Examples: Humans (I personally believe playful, socializing animals like Dolphins and Manatee are also third density, but Ra doesn’t mention this)
Lesson: Choice.

3rd Density is the density of self-consciousness or self-awareness It is associated with the yellow chakra energy center and the chemical body. Th 3rd density is where each, and every one of us find ourselves right now, and is actually the shortest and most intense of the 7 density levels in terms of incarnations cycles. The reasons are because of two different major factors. Polarity, and the veil of forgetting.The veiling process which occurs in 3rd density shrouds each persons memory from previous incarnations so that there is no awareness that our souls are on an evolutionary journey.

This allows each of us to demonstrate the will of man which enables us to make a completely authentic choice between positive, and negative. The catalyst for evolution and 3rd density is phycological suffering. This is why our 3rd density life is so difficult in comparison to all the others. Suffering Forces our consciousness to gain freedom from the ego which was built through the second density. similarly, this allows humans to eventually become truly autonomous and possess free will.Suffering in 3rd density is very high because both polarities negative, and positive must be presented in equal proportion.

The formation of the ego creates a sense that the entity is separate from every one and everything which initially creates a barbaric, and hostile behavior at the beginning of third density. As thousands of years go by and many incarnations are experienced, the soul learns the lessons of love and understanding, and begins to remember that it actually is an eternal being having a temper experience. The choice between positive, and negative is made. If a person decides to become negative, he/she will will produce negative circumstances in life. If a person decides to be positive he/she will produce positive circumstances.

A service-to-self being is what we would perceive as being very selfish in nature—very much involved in domination and enslavement, with the attitude of “my will against and above everything else.” A service-to-other creature wants to develop itself in the direction of service, sharing, joy, love, generosity and kindness, through being of service to other versions of itself—to the rest of itself. In a way, both are totally allowed by the Infinite One. The choice is up to the individual, and this is where the choice is made—within the 3rd Density lessons and learning.

Density #4. Love/Understanding

Represented By: Heart Chakra ~ Color Green (Upper is pink)
Description: In fourth density, we unlock love by connecting with the essenceof things, the expression not bounded by time or separation in space. Fourth density allows interaction with the entire future and past of a phenomenon through the now, and directly connecting with (and influencing) the future and past through the now.
Visual: One timeline of fractal trees sharing love, growing together
Conscious Experience: Overwhelming love, experiencing things as one expression (free from time), understanding time as non-linear and non-binding
Examples: Love from Gaia, knowing things will be Okay, (4th density could be called the Astral realm)
Lesson: Love.

4th Density is associated with the green chakra energy center, and the chemical body. 4th Density is the density of love, understanding and compassion. It is about losing one’s separate point of view for the sake of a greater sense of inseparability with the whole. You can see this very acutely in our civilization today (more about this in the next lesson).

In 4th Density, Consciousness wants to learn the lessons of love—whether that is complete, 100% devotion to loving oneself above everything else (the service-to-self orientation), or as is the case for most beings (and for most of the beings on our planet today), the orientation of service-to-others, where we want to express and learn about love in relationship to others; where we want to feel inseparability; where we want to feel connected to other beings in this way. So, 4th Density is about love and service—either to self or to others.

After a while, a 4th Density being reaches a point of exhaustion. This happens especially with service-to-others-oriented 4th Density beings because they sometimes get too overwhelmed by love, in a way. You may know this from your own experience—when you want to share too much, when you care too much about another’s well-being, to the point where it becomes detrimental to your own, or even their, well-being. This is just one example. You can find many examples of people who are almost too loving, you could say. It is not really that they are too loving, it is that their love is not balanced yet by wisdom.

Density #5. Light/Wisdom

Represented By: Throat Chakra ~ Color Blue
Description: Fifth density allows not only interacting with all parts of the universe, but interactions with every fractal offshoot of multi-reality universes. In this density, we can not only manifest and experience anything within our universal reality, but in any reality, even those disconnected from our own.
Visual: All possible histories and futures of the fractal trees growing together
Conscious Experience: A 5D being can visit (conscious experience, or physically in integrated craft) any point in the future and past. Manifesting any reality through focusing on the idea of it. Any configuration of energy will rebound to you through any number of realities.
Examples: 5th density could be called the Causal realm. We would think of this as the creative view of all. To see is to create. To know all as knowing nothing because in each reality truth is different.
Lesson: Wisdom

5th Density is the stage of Light, and Wisdom and is associated with the blue chakra energy center and the chemical body.5th Density is the density where we teach ourselves the lessons of wisdom, of independence. In this density, we become kind of “yogic.” We realize that everything exists inside of our Consciousness—that there is no external world, there are no other people (not truly, at least), there are no other beings—it is all One Being. Everything is already perfect and complete; nothing can ever go wrong.

Everything that wants to be attained can be attained by simply sitting and being there; by meditating on it, by intending it. Everything is contained within the individual. This is the density of Light, or Wisdom.

Density#6. Unity/Balance

Represented By: Third Eye Chakra ~ Color Indigo
Description: There is no polarity, but radiant connection of oneness, collective expression and consciousness. This is the last density containing physical entities (or to say it better, individualized conscious personalities). After that, it’s collective consciousnesses, planetary consciousnesses etc. There is nothing left to experience as a separation.
Visual: The actual love burst that is continually living through all of the possible histories and pasts of the fractal trees interacting
Conscious Experience: Radiant Joyous Expansion into All things
Example: Primary animation light of life
Lesson: Unity as Collective consciousness

Associated withe the Indigo Chakra, 6th Density is the density where the really subtle lessons of balancing love and wisdom start to come up for the Consciousness, for the individual that is tied to this density. It becomes quite difficult to explain what this density is like in terms we can understand. Just imagine Light; imagine pure Light.

Imagine beings made of pure Light, group consciousnesses made of pure Light who are being of service and extending themselves throughout the lower densities.6th Density is the density where your Higher Self (as I would term it), or your Overarching Self or Soul, resides. Therefore, it is already here, even if you are a 3rd or 4th Density explorative being. This overarching umbrella—this non-physical Self, which we could call the “Soul” or the “Higher Self”—resides at a 6th Density level of vibration of Love and Light.

Density #7. The GateWay

Represented By: Crown Chakra ~ Color Violet
Description: The completion of all possible universal expressions as one universe.
An oversoul is a 7th density being (in 12d system, see next section)
Visual: The completed master tree holding all other trees and possibilities of trees. Or, the torus of all other completed torus shapes.
Conscious Experience: The completion of all experience within a universal expansion.
Lesson: Completion

In 7th Density, the Consciousness that was in the 6th Density has, in a sense, left all that it knows to Creation—it has left all that it knows to all of its portions, to all of its parts—in the form of the Higher Self. It has made all of the knowledge it experienced through millions of years of evolution available to all of its parts, which are still back in “time” in a lower density, exploring evolution.

In this way, Higher Self is now available to all of its parts and for the individual itself; it leaves the “blueprint” of the Higher Self available to everyone else. The being itself, who generated the whole experience, the whole journey of evolution, has reached a certain completion—the completion of having balanced love and wisdom, and having made itself completely available to all of Creation.

At this point, this being starts to feel a pull, a draw, back into the Creator itself. Its journey within Creation, within form as we know it, has been completed, and now this being will gradually turn its gaze backwards into the One Infinite Mystery. In late 6th Density, this being feels a very strong gravitational pull to move into becoming All-That-Is. It starts to lose its individual identity, even if it has already merged in 4th, 5th, and 6th Densities with a group entity—with a group consciousness of many beings, collectively sharing One Mind, while still being individuals. This group entity is still an identity—it is a group identity—and In 7th Density, this identity is also transcended.

In 7th Density, the being’s gaze is turned towards the One Infinite Creator, towards Source itself, towards the unspeakable, the indescribable, the infinite, the indefinable. It is turned towards the trulyformless; towards that which is beyond everything and All-That-Is. The being feels such a strong pull towards this, that it enters the inner black hole of its Consciousness and starts to merge with the Infinite One. This is 7th Density, and it is one big mystery. There is not much we can say about it, but my Infinity course taps into it; it shows how to get a glimpse of your 7th Density level of being.

After a timeless amount of time in timelessness, where merger has occurred, the beingness returns or reoccurs (even though it has never lost itself), and re-emerges into the 1st Density of another universe—a new universe where things work differently; where everything that has been learned collectively (in the former universe) now becomes a new universe, a new Creation, a new way of expressing the One Infinite Creator. And this goes on infinitely, infinitely, infinitely, infinitely, infinitely, infinitely…
More densities? I thought there were 7

Well, 7 or 12, (or 8, or 13). 12 is really 12+1 (13) , with the 13th theorized as the consciousness or collection of all realities. 8th–13th densities are described by the entities Rob Gauthier channels.
This 7-or-12 discrepancy may be because some entities compress the 12 into 7, or because the 8–12th (+1) is contained within the definition of the 7th found elsewhere.

8th-12th Density

Description: In the 12-density system, these are further, more accurate versions of the 7th density in the 7-density system. (I plan to update this section as I learn more)
The 11th Density is the Universe itself.
Visual: Completing the torus of consciousness,
Conscious Experience: Similar to 6th–7th density experience.
Lesson: Growth from individualized expression into the unity.

13th Density

Description: In the 12-density system, 13th density can represent the completion, or encompassing personality of all universes, or the next octave of reality. It is said to be the all of all, or the all encompassing expression of all things.
Visual: Universes as cells in a body.
Conscious Experience: The next octave of realities, like cells to an organ, but the cells are entire universes.
Lesson: Everything

Image Notes

(1) Theosophy/Kabbalah Elements

“Theosophic” refers to the Theosophic Society, and “Kabbalah” to the ancient Jewish/Hebrew body of non-traditional esoteric information. Other than a very brief stint with the Portuguese Theosophic Society, I’m by no means an expert in any of these fields, nor do I affiliate with any of them. Simply, along the way, I found myself able to connect some of these fields of information, in particular, their descriptions of the esoteric planes/dimensions (the human subtle bodies and planes in Theosophy, and the Kabbalah’s Tree of Life) with my own understanding of the various Dimensions/Densities.

(2) The Human Trinity

This divides the Human Soul/Spirit into its three primary components. The terms used vary greatly among different sources. Other terms include Monad, Higher Self, and Lower Self, or Divine Self, Soul and Human, for example. Nevertheless, it refers to these three elements. I prefer calling the 6th Density-based entity as “Higher Self”, and then define the rest from there.

(3) Only Positive 6D Upwards

The division between Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine is a constant in this Universe, and is present along with all densities. However, the negative polarity (fear, lack of Light, as opposed to positive, Love, Light) only exists mainly from 5D downwards. From the beginning of 6D and upwards, the negative is no longer sustainable and ceases to exist. Consciousness only contemplates serving its purpose, and learning by manifesting solely its Essence and nothing else, no longer admitting any form of negativity in its reality. This is the definition of 6D. There are only different gradations and manifestations of Light/Love – but not the lack of them.

(4) The Human Trinity

Theosophy calls the 6th density level as Monadic. I believe it’s because they call Monad to the Higher Self. The concept of Monad/Oversoul is often used by many sources to refer either the Higher Self, or the Soul groups it belongs to. To me, “Monad” is a term describing a 7th Density (and upwards) collective, our group, the Soul might belong to. Monads are hard to describe. A Monad can be as small as the group of your closer Soul family, or as large as a collective of, say, the Souls who represent the beings on a given planet. Or constellation.

(5) Soul and Higher Self

The Soul is the fundamental spiritual “unit” in the Universe. It is Being. It is You. It exists in this form on 6th Density, and also upwards, including “inside” Source or the Infinity. It is displayed as a triad because it relates in this manner to the Human Being, but the unitary Soul exists in the Infinite. The Soul can “divide itself” at any level, but most notably when it incarnates, when it fundamentally splits into two main parts: the incarnated self, the part which incarnates into matter, and the part that does not, that “stays behind” at the original Soul’s level, and is not affected by incarnation in any way. This is the “Higher Self”. Another way of putting it would be to say the Higher Self is the Soul, except without You!

(6) The Essence of The Human

The ultimate Essence is the Soul, or Higher Self. This is Who the Human really Is. But, the Spirit is only a part, a projection, not the totality, of the Soul. Spirit is akin to an intermediate connective layer between the Human Being and the full manifestation of its Soul It’s a natural occurrence in the process of incarnation, for a part of the Soul incarnates in matter, while the rest remains unaffected. But also bear in mind the Spirit is a sovereign, self-aware being, much like the Higher Self, and much like You. At some point in its evolution, Spirit, in alignment with the Soul’s wishes and in all its Wisdom, may wish, or may have wished, to explore things outside of its nature, for example what’s like not to live in alignment with his true Self, or be unable or not allowed to. Or, it may happen simply by “accident”. Here, “Essence” refers to the nature of the Human Being which is most aligned with his Soul, the core, the distilled, the most True, who the Human truly is, and what should it be doing and feeling in life in order to be the most in sync with his true identity – as opposed to having beliefs and behaviors misaligned with its nature.

(7) Intermediate Density

Above the top 5th density, realms are mostly energetic, and Souls, when they project, explore, or exist somewhere outside Source, they still are energy and retain most of their consciousness, depending on the circumstances. Below the top 5th density exist the matter-based physical realms where incarnation occurs. When Souls incarnate, there is a distinctive loss of awareness between the Soul state and the incarnated consciousness, depending on the harshness of the reality, and the veil between physical and the etheric (so to speak) realms, which still permeate the reality. The top 5th density plane is the middle-point, whose realities are mostly energetic, or semi-energetic semi-physical, with little veil and loss of consciousness, but still being a physical-type, incarnation-based experience. For this reason it’s frequently used as a “training” density for Souls desiring to “try out” the process of incarnation. It marks as far as incarnation happens at all. Beings existing above it are more energetic, Light-based, maybe akin to “Angels”, whereas beings incarnating below are what you’d call aliens or ETs (except those on Earth).

Because the loss of consciousness is minimal, and the full awareness of the Soul is mostly retained, it is considered that this is the “last” plane (counting from above) where the Soul can manifest itself in its original state. Below it, there must be progressively severe degrees of adaptation, splitting, and vibration loss, in order to explore the realms in question. For this same reason, the human subtle bodies only go so far as the Atmic plane. In the planes above, they’re called manifestations, perhaps forms, but one cannot call them “bodies” anymore, because there is no more matter or incarnation involved. Daath in the Kabbalah is said to manifest the light from all other sephiroths. This is the reality where the purely energy/light realms, and the physical outer realms, meet together.
