With heartfelt love and gratitude, this article is humbly dedicated to the I AM Presence of the ascended master Saint Germain, from whom the essential information on which it is based was personally received between 1987 and 1991.
The journey into enlightenment begins with the realization that this polarized world of holographic illusion in which we live is actually a schoolroom for the evolution of consciousness, the graduates of which are called ascended masters for the simple reason that they have achieved complete mastery over time and space. In short, they have overcome the world through a process of learning how to be in the world but not of it.
Needless to say, this is a radical realization which has the effect of completely reversing the supposedly enlightened orientation of modern science regarding the nature of this world and of our relationship to it. To be specific, it involves a major paradigm shift from a materialistic orientation to a spiritual orientation.
Without this realization and the radical paradigm shift that it involves, even the most profound experiences of unity consciousness will not produce an enlightened state of being for the simple reason that they will soon be dismissed as figments of the imagination instead of being recognized as the glimpses of reality which they actually are.
The interesting thing about all of this is the fact that, historically speaking, the spiritual orientation was generally accepted throughout the world up until relatively recently. It has only been during the past century or two that the materialistic orientation has gradually come to be regarded as the conventional view, with consequences that we are only now beginning to recognize as being nothing less than disastrous for the future of humanity.
Most people who have been indoctrinated and brainwashed by our supposedly enlightened pseudoscientific educational system will be surprised to learn that the spiritual orientation which regards this world as a schoolroom for the evolution of consciousness, the graduates of which are called ascended masters, was the accepted view of all those who graduated from the mystery schools of ancient Egypt and Keltic Britain, which could trace their origins all the way back to the enlightened civilizations of ancient Atlantis and Lemuria.
Akhenaten and Moses, Pythagoras and Plato, Joseph of Arimathea and Jesus of Nazareth are a few of the more well-known examples of those who could trace their spiritual lineage all the way back to Isis and Osiris in ancient Atlantis.
It is time for us to wake up to the fact that, during the twentieth century, our view of the world was turned completely upside-down by a pseudoscientific contest between falsified science and falsified religion that was intentionally orchestrated by a multidimensional conspiracy of darkworkers for the specific purpose of subverting our civilization in such a way as to transform it into an insane Alice in Wonderland nightmare. (For documented proof, see Lightworkers and Darkworkers and The Ultimate Disinformation Program by Allisone Heartsong.)
There is an old saying: When your dream turns into a nightmare, that means it's time to wake up. There is only one way to wake up from this nightmare, however, and that is by turning our view of the world right-side-up again.
As the title implies, the purpose of this article is to undertake a brief survey of the evolution of consciousness. Before doing so, however, our task will be made ever so much easier if we approach it by first turning our upside-down view of the world right-side-up.
Let us therefore pause for a moment to relax our minds and open our hearts so as to allow our consciousness to expand. This can be done by simply making the choice to release all limiting thoughts, belief systems, and mental sets that might otherwise inhibit or prevent the expanding horizons and paradigm shifts which are the very essence of the evolution of consciousness.
Thus, for example, rather than making the axiomatic assumption that consciousness and will are nothing more than epiphenomenal byproducts of the central nervous systems of highly evolved biological organisms, let us instead open our minds to the illuminating possibility that the central nervous systems of highly evolved biological organisms are nothing more than epiphenomenal byproducts of the dynamic interaction between consciousness and will, which are in turn nothing less than the fundamental attributes of spiritual being.
Once we have liberated our minds from the mental straightjacket of materialism, we are then in a position to see that, whereas consciousness is the feminine-receptive capacity of our being to register and recognize energy patterns, will is the masculine-expressive capacity of our being to create and alter energy patterns.
What is more, once we have arrived at the enlightening realization that we create our conscious experiences through our volitional choices, we are then in a position to see that we have a fundamental choice as to whether we are going to use our will to contract our consciousness or whether we are going to use our will to expand our consciousness.
And last but not least, once we have made the empowering choice to expand our consciousness, we are then in a position to see that, in reality, we are spiritual beings who have chosen to incarnate into this polarized world of holographic illusion for the purpose of having some human experiences and that one of these human experiences consists in turning our view of the world upside-down so as to create the illusion that we are human beings who are having some spiritual experiences. This means that we do not have to try to become spiritual because we already are by our very nature and that our essential task is rather to master the challenge of being human by learning how to be in the world but not of it.
Before we examine the sequential stages in the evolution of human consciousness,
let us pave the way by first undertaking a brief survey of the evolution of
consciousness in general. We may begin by making a clear distinction between
twelve dimensions of consciousness, each of which is composed of twelve subdimensions
or overtones. Of these twelve dimensions of consciousness, the twelfth dimension
constitutes the source of all being, which is characterized by the highest frequency
of vibrational energy, and the first dimension constitutes the world of physical
matter, which is characterized by the lowest frequency of vibrational energy.
Next, let us make a further distinction between the process of descension, by means of which consciousness steps down through the dimensions from the highest frequency to the lowest frequency, and the process of ascension, by means of which consciousness evolves upward through the dimensions from the lowest frequency to the highest frequency.
Using this conceptual map as our frame of reference, let us now summarize the first seven stages in the general evolution of consciousness. The key thing to see here is that these first seven stages correspond to the seven primary energy centers of the human chakra system.
1. First dimension = red ray = root chakra
mineral kingdom = physical body = sensation
atomic particles and chemical elements (positive - negative polarity)
first stage of separation consciousness
orientation: survival = warrior (kill or be killed)
2. Second dimension = orange ray = navel chakra
plant and animal kingdom = emotional body = emotion (e.g., fear)
growth and reproduction (male - female polarity)
second stage of separation consciousness
orientation: control = judge (dominate or submit)
3. Third dimension = yellow ray = solar plexus chakra
human kingdom = mental body = thinking
self-awareness and social relations (egoism - altruism polarity)
third stage of separation consciousness
orientation: competition (win or lose)
4. Fourth dimension = green ray = heart chakra
harmonic kingdom = causal body = feeling (e.g., love)
empathic awareness = social memory complex (service to self - service to others)
first stage of unity consciousness
orientation: cooperation (you and me)
5. Fifth dimension = blue ray = throat chakra
etheric kingdom = etheric body = choosing
telepathic communication of truth
second stage of unity consciousness
orientation: creative manifestation (sovereign freedom)
6. Sixth dimension = indigo ray = brow chakra
light kingdom = light body = knowing
merging of all polarities
third stage of unity consciousness
orientation: enlightenment (we are one)
7. Seventh dimension = violet ray = crown chakra
kingdom of heaven = ascended master = mastery
merging with intelligent infinity
fourth stage of unity consciousness
orientation: God -realization (God I AM)
Thus, for example, the first dimension of consciousness, which corresponds to the root chakra, is represented by the mineral kingdom, which is characterized by physical embodiment only.
The second dimension of consciousness, which corresponds to the navel chakra, is represented by the plant and animal kingdoms, which is characterized by an emotional body as well as a physical body.
The third dimension of consciousness, which corresponds to the solar plexus chakra, is represented by the human kingdom, which is characterized by a mental body as well as an emotional body and a physical body.
The fourth dimension of consciousness, which corresponds to the heart chakra, is represented by the harmonic kingdom (lightworkers or darkworkers), which is characterized by a causal body.
The fifth dimension of consciousness, which corresponds to the throat chakra, is represented by the etheric kingdom (space beings), which is characterized by an etheric body.
The sixth dimension of consciousness, which corresponds to the brow chakra, is represented by the light kingdom (light beings), which is characterized by a light body.
And the seventh dimension of consciousness, which corresponds to the crown chakra, is represented by the kingdom of heaven (ascended masters), which is characterized by individualized spirit.
Having thus arrived at a clear understanding of the evolution of consciousness in general, let us now elucidate the sequential stages in the evolution of human consciousness in particular.
Although you are able to identify yourself by giving your name, address, and telephone number, as yet you have no understanding of who you truly are and what life in this wondrous world of illusion is really all about.
You identify with your physical body and operate under the illusion that you are nothing more than your physical body. As a consequence, your life is governed by fear because you are convinced that you are mortal and that death is your ultimate destination. What is more, you have the orientation of a warrior whose primary concern is survival. In short, you perceive life as being basically a choice between killing or being killed, eating or being eaten. And even though Darwin's theory of the biological evolution of mankind from the apes through genetic mutation and natural selection is not supported by the empirical evidence of scientific paleontology or the mathematical calculations of statistical probability, you are inclined to regard it as the key to understanding what life in this world is really all about. Thus, your belief in the survival of the fittest can all too easily degenerate into the belief that might makes right.
You live primarily in your emotional body and imprison yourself with your negative judgmental emotions because you have not yet learned how to liberate yourself through the practice of unconditional forgiving love. To be specific, you invalidate the past with grievance, you invalidate the future with fear, you invalidate the present with anger, and you invalidate yourself with guilt. As a consequence, you are inclined to regard death as a form of punishment and may even develop the unconscious conviction that you have been condemned to death for your sins, in which case you may then attempt to ward off depression by punishing yourself masochistically or by punishing others sadistically. In any case, your primary motivation is to gain power over other people in order to compensate for the fact that you have disempowered yourself through your invalidating judgmental emotions. Thus, you have the orientation of a subjugator, for whom all relationships are perceived as a choice between dominating or submitting, controlling or being controlled, enslaving or being enslaved.
You live primarily in your mental body and devote most of your time and energy to the task of constructing a conceptual map for the purpose of trying to find your way around in this polarized world of holographic illusion, where most people seem to lose their way in the labyrinth. Your orientation is essentially competitive and you are forever comparing yourself with others or with an ego ideal of perfection for the purpose of determining whether you are succeeding or failing. As a consequence, you may develop an inferiority-superiority complex which causes you to overtly regard yourself as superior to compensate for the fact that you covertly regard yourself as inferior. In any case, you are strongly motivated to achieve the goals which you have set for yourself, and you are inclined to approach every situation as a contest which revolves around the issue of winning or losing. However, the fact that everyone in the world has a different personality, as a result of having chosen a different sequence of choices, has the effect of making everyone appear to be different from one another. What is more, the fact that everyone in the world has developed a different belief system, which makes it difficult for any two people to agree on anything, gives rise to endless conflict and confusion. This, plus the fact that many people have made the uncivilized choice to practice deception and coercion as a way of life could easily lead you from skepticism through cynicism into disillusionment and despair unless you have learned to keep your sense of humor about the human condition.
You have begun to realize that you are not your body and that you are not your mind. Thus, instead of regarding yourself as a human being who is having some spiritual experiences, you have begun to reorient to the realization that you are a spiritual being who is having some human experiences by manifesting through mental, emotional, and physical instruments. What is more, you have begun to wake up to the fact that your present lifetime is only one incarnation among many and that your soul is actually immortal. As a direct result of this reorientation, you no longer misuse your logical thoughts to suppress your intuitive feelings, but have instead begun to allow your logical thoughts to be guided by your intuitive feelings. Having thus made the pivotal choice to place your mind in the service of your heart, you have begun to realize that, like sunbeams radiating out into the darkness from one central source, we are all extensions of one universal being. So long as we choose to look outward into the darkness through our physical senses, we experience the illusion of being separate from one another. However, the moment we make the empowering choice to turn inward so as to look into the light, we experience the reality that we are all part of one whole. Having begun the process of making this radical paradigm shift from the illusion of separation consciousness to the reality of unity consciousness, your whole approach to life is gradually changing from a competitive orientation to a cooperative orientation.
You are waking up to the wonder and glory of life. Having arrived at the realization that we create our experiences through our choices, you have begun to use your will to expand your consciousness. In this way, you have begun the process of transforming your very identity, which is a process of spiritual birth from antichrist consciousness into christ consciousness that is analogous to the transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly. Having thus awakened to the reality that you are a powerful creator, you are gradually learning how to free yourself from all of your self-imposed limitations and are no longer under the illusion of being a disempowered creature who has unwittingly chosen to be the helpless victim of circumstance. To be specific, you are learning to validate the past with gratitude, to validate the future with enthusiasm, to validate the present with joy, and to validate yourself with love.
By choosing to come into perfect alignment with the source of your being through the practice of unconditional forgiving love in every situation, you have liberated yourself from all of the self-limitations which characterize the human condition and have begun to recover from your spiritual amnesia so as to remember who you really are. As an immortal being of light, you can travel through space and time at the speed of light and can manifest anything you choose simply by thinking of it. However, because you have now arrived at the point of seeing others as being different facets of your One Universal Self, your orientation to life has naturally evolved into that of a compassionate humanitarian whose deepest satisfaction comes from rendering humble service to anyone who asks for assistance.
Having overcome the world and graduated from the schoolroom of the space-time continuum, you are now an ascended master who is dedicated to the task of serving humanity as a teacher and guide. And having overcome the illusion of death, you are now able to materialize and dematerialize a physical body at will for the purpose of carrying out this task.
Having chosen to continue your journey homeward to the source of your being, you have begun the transpersonal process of merging your individual consciousness with your monadic consciousness. By merging with all twelve oversouls of the soul family of mankind, you are now capable of functioning as a planetary logos such as Sanat Kumara, who serves as the planetary logos for Planet Earth.
Having merged with the Elohim, who are known as the Lords of Creation, you are now capable of functioning as a solar logos such as Helios Vesta, who serves as the solar logos for that star around which Planet Earth revolves.
Having merged with Lord Metatron, you are now capable of functioning as a galactic logos such as Melchior, who serves as the galactic logos for our Milky Way Galaxy.
Having merged with the twelve archangels, you are now capable of functioning as a universal logos such as Melchizedek, who serves as the universal logos of our Shan Universe.
Having merged with the One Universal Source of your being, which is experienced as an Infinite Ocean of Limitless Love, you have now achieved full God-Realization.
Having stepped down through the twelve dimensions of consciousness into physical embodiment as an individualized Son of God and then completed the journey back to the source of your being as a universalized Son of God, you are now capable of functioning as an integral part of the I AM Presence, which encompasses all twelve dimensions and is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent.
Life in this polarized world of labyrinthic illusion is essentially a process of making choices and then experiencing the internal as well as the external consequences of those choices. To avoid getting lost in the labyrinth, the essential point to bear in mind is that the consequences of our choices are determined not only by what we choose to do, but also by how we choose to do it. Almost invariably, there is an easy way of doing things and there is a hard way of doing things.
Let it be known that the key to evolving expeditiously through these sequential stages of consciousness is to cultivate an enlightened attitude of humble gratitude, childlike wonder, and amused detachment which honors all stages so as not to get stuck in any particular stage by making the mistake of judging others who appear to be less enlightened than we are.
In short, the key to ascension is to never lose sight of the fundamental fact that all is one.
This article is designed to provide a comprehensive overview for the purpose of supplementing four other works by the same author which are, in turn, designed to complement one another. Whereas Lightworkers and Darkworkers is designed to serve as a conceptual map which points the way to enlightenment, The Book of Choices is designed to serve as a volitional guide that leads the way to enlightenment. And the 55 films on videocassette which are recommended in Saint Germain's Audiovisual Course for Lightworkers are designed to serve as perceptual illustrations of the fundamental distinction between lightworkers and darkworkers, which is the key to understanding what is really going on in this polarized world of holographic illusion. Last but not least, The Ultimate Disinformation Program is designed to expose the various forms of disinformation that are currently being disseminated by a global conspiracy of darkworkers to deceive, mislead, manipulate, and control people for the ultimate purpose of keeping us in the dark.
