To Understand Physically

magnifying_glassOnce a sufferer has lifted him- or herself from To Control Absolutely, To Force, To Threaten, and To Blame to the consciousness level of To Accept With Intent To Learn, the sufferer naturally moves into the next more creative levels of consciousness, which I call To Understand Physically and To Understand Spiritually. How does one move to these levels? By asking questions.

All human progress, whether personal or public, comes from individuals asking questions. Physical understanding involves asking questions about the physical and psychological processes and elements involved in a situation:

  • Who is involved in the situation?
  • What exactly is happening?
  • When did the situation first manifest?
  • Where did the situation first manifest?
  • How did the situation come about?

And so forth. Asking such questions lifts the consciousness to the level I call To Understand Physically, and the answers can equip one to take practical action to balance, heal, escape from, or exploit a painful situation to one’s benefit.

Physical understanding is sufficient for solving a great many of the problems we face every day. But sometimes our suffering is so great, or the causes of our suffering are so elusive or problematical, that a deeper understanding of our situation is called for. And that brings the questioner to the next level of consciousness, which I call To Understand Spiritually.

The 10 Levels of Consciousness: An Introduction

Way back in 1987, my partner Stuart, in deep trance channeling as “Alexandra,” revealed that there were many levels of consciousness available to human civilizations. According to Alexandra, the progress of history has been a progress of human consciousness from the least creative level of consciousness, To Control Absolutely, to the most creative level of consciousness, To Know That I Already Have.

In this view, each sociopolitical entity—nation, country, ethnic group, city, organization, family—tends to operate on one of the levels of consciousness. According to Alexandra and my own information source, these levels of consciousness are (listed from least creative to most creative):

    1. To Control Absolutely
    2. To Force
    3. To Threaten
    4. To Blame
    5. To Accept
    6. To Know the Physical Reasons Why
    7. To Know the Spiritual Reasons Why
    8. To Give
    9. To Love Unconditionally
    10. To Know That I Already Have

According to Alexandra, the consciousness level “To Control Absolutely” has, by and large, passed out of history as a means for civilizations to create experience for themselves, although individual nations or groups may still be experimenting with this consciousness level. Generally speaking, Alexandra said, modern civilization operates more or less on the level number 2, “To Force,” both in its attitudes towards Nature and its attitudes towards its citizenry (though again, some groups behave in a more enlightened manner).

Alexandra predicted that, as the Age of Aquarius dawned and progressed, “To Force” would generally pass out of use as a group consciousness tool, and “To Threaten” would take its place, possibly as civilization came to fear the death-dealing weaponry and industrial processes it has developed for dealing with undesired groups and “undeveloped” Nature.

Individual human beings, however, can operate on any level of consciousness, or go back and forth among levels many times during the day, though even then individuals tend to gravitate towards one level of consciousness in particular as their favorite or familiar level.

In the next few blogs I will be describing the ten levels of consciousness both as they relate to societies and as they relate to individuals, and give some ideas on how you can raise your consciousness level if you find yourself stuck on a level that is not as creative as you require.
