The Stages of Development of the Spirit Body
Gestation and birthing of the spirit-body is much like that of the physical body. In fact, you are born into the physical body on Earth to continue the path of ultimately being born from the womb of this physical body into the spirit-body. When you have completed your path through the dense physical stages of life, you will cease incarnating on the physical planets of this multiverse we call a universe and move on to higher stages in less dense realms. The stages of gestation and development of the spirit body — while in this physical "body-womb" — are much like their physical counterparts. When the ancient descriptions of these five stages translates into practical modern English, they sound like this: (1) Spirit-Embryo (the very earliest beginnings of the journey lasting thousands of lifetimes — no self-awareness); (2) Spirit-Fetal (the embryo has blossomed into self awareness, but is not yet born into the awareness of the oneness of all souls); (3) Spirit-Thresh-holder (birthing at the opening to the spirit-world of higher consciousness and aware of the oneness of all souls. This is a very early stage of spiritual life and there is much confusion, trepidation and duality); (4) Spirit-Path-walker (developing the deeper understanding and compassion of the path of the soul and committed to walking on this path); (5) Spirit-Star-walker (the enlightened — awakened masters leading life through the cosmos as they pass from the physical plane).
Everyone on Earth is on this path at some level. This world — as such — is a one room schoolhouse . . . every level being schooled and evolved together, each person learning at their appropriate level and rate. For this reason — as a leader — the most important quality to have in such an environment is complete non-judgment and total non-bias.
