Fo u r M aj o r St ag es o f Co n sci o u sn ess W h er e' s Yo u r Ten t Pi t ch ed ? By Pam Gr o u t ?Bei ng spi ri t ual has not hi ng t o do wi t h what you bel i eve and everyt hi ng t o do wi t h your st at e of consci ousness."? Eck hart Tol l e When first crafting the spiritual/ energy principles to be tested in E-Squared, I spent many an hour pondering the wording. On several, I stated ?your thoughts and your consciousness? impact? .this or that. Part of me wondered, ?Isn?t that redundant?? Writers would rather poke knitting needles in their eyes than be redundant. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that thoughts and consciousness, while certainly joined at the hip, are two different animals. Thoughts are derived from our consciousness, but it?s our consciousness that provides the framework, the meat, the juice, the final answer. It?s the level of our consciousness that shapes and molds the reality that plays out in our lives. And there are many levels of consciousness, each with different rules, principles, characteristics and attributes. For example, if you reside in the victim consciousness (?Things happen TO me,? ?Life sucks and then you die? are a few standard thoughts from this level), you can affirm and intend all you want, but your consciousness, the driver of your reality, which believes affirmations and intentions are a bunch of hooey always gets the last word. When you spend most of your waking hours in that consciousness (and it?s a very popular consciousness), your channels are plugged up. All the good that wants to come your way can?t get through. Because we live in a multi-dimensional universe, there are dozens of different levels of consciousness, oftentimes residing in one person. For the purpose of this discussion, I?ve broken it down into four major consciousness categories. Each of these levels has dozens of subsets, all that play out in different ways in our lives. Let?s just say that my goal is to move closer to level four. Page 24 - December, 2015
