Stairway to Heaven
by Owen Waters
There is a stairway to heaven. It leads through the heavenly realms of the afterlife and continues even further, all the way to the ultimate state of consciousness from which the universe sprang into existence.
Infinite Being, the ultimate source of all things, created a universe of infinite diversity, of infinite parts of the whole. As humanity, we are the adventurers who projected ourselves into physical experience in order to bring deeper focus into our experience. Our purpose in the physical realm of consciousness is to gain a sharply-defined sense of identity and to grow from there.
The long-term mission of each and every one of us is to gain expanded awareness through life’s experiences until we eventually return to the one God, no longer as curious seekers, but as self-realized, conscious gods.
The steps of the stairway are formed by twelve layers of consciousness. Each step is composed of a different degree of compression of the original consciousness which created the universe. The higher steps are more ethereal, or less compressed, than the lower ones. The lower steps are more compressed, more sharply focused, and more clearly defined than the ones above.
Every step along the stairway is composed of consciousness. Even the physical world, with its apparently physical objects, is really composed of 100% consciousness, projected in a way that appears to be external and solid.
The Twelve Densities of Creation
The Twelve Densities of Creation are divided into four groups of three densities. These four groups contain the material, spiritual, cosmic and divine density layers of existence.
The Material Group of Densities
The three most dense layers are the material group. These relate to basic physical existence.
First Density – Matter
First density consciousness is the realm of the atoms and molecules of physical matter as well as the basic sense of survival. This is the home density of the consciousness of the elements which form the basis of physical matter, including the physical bodies employed by plants, animals and humans.
Second Density – Biology
Second density supports the consciousness of plant and animal life as well as the urge to grow. Plant life, for example, reproduces and spreads until it reaches the limits provided by its environment. Second density is also the density of the basic emotions, such as anger and fear.
Third Density – Individuality
Third density is the current realm of existence for the combined consciousness of physical humanity. It is where the consciousness of individuality and self-awareness is developed. Humanity’s experience of separation from its inner source is a deliberate experiment whereby the illusion of physical existence becomes very real.
The game of human physicality began long ago. As curious spirits, we progressed into a desire for maximum effect and then went on to discover how to create total immersion within the game. It is this total immersion within physicality which makes life on earth seem so real, so full of passion, so disconnected from our spiritual source and, yet, full of so much potential for self-discovery.
The experience of humanity’s separation from its inner source is achieved through using a physical brain which focuses on the five senses. These senses feed information to the brain from a universe which appears to be external. Our brains are wired to perceive space and to experience time. The turning of our attention away from inner, spiritually-connected information provides a sharply-defined sense of individuality, one which would not have been possible were our brains designed differently.
Third-density consciousness also supports other qualities for an evolving consciousness, such as the discovery of courage and optimism, and the development of intellect and reason.
The Spiritual Group of Densities
The next layers of density are the spiritual group. The gateway to spiritual consciousness is through the level of consciousness to which mankind is currently awakening – that of heart-centered consciousness. For humanity, this is where the adventure really begins!
Fourth Density – Integration
In fourth-density consciousness, the heart awakens to a natural unrestricted flow of unconditional love. In third-density consciousness, humans develop themes of separation from each other. In fourth density, they develop integration, or the healing of separation.
Fourth density is where the spirit realm, or afterlife, is located. Here, people resolve and integrate the emotional experiences that they gained during their physical lives. When today’s massive Shift in consciousness has played through sufficiently, fourth density will also become the new location for physical human consciousness. In this density, the qualities of balance and unconditional love are developed, which lead to the development of inner joy.
Fifth Density – Soul Consciousness
Fifth density brings with it the ability to create powerful realities and to transcend space and time. Once spirits in the afterlife have integrated their emotions and resolved their conflicts, they can pass on into fifth density. Fifth density is a nonphysical realm of the soul, of the “higher self” or inner being. Your inner being is your complete consciousness, and therefore includes the subconscious and superconscious aspects of mind.
Your inner being has a clear connection to the higher densities and to Infinite Being. Therefore, developing a clear connection to your inner being provides you with a direct source of spiritual empowerment.
Sixth Density – Group Souls
While your immediate soul mates may number, typically, seven other souls, your soul family is much larger. It is closer to two thousand individuals, grouped together in a huge family of people with common likes and interests.
You share a similar energetic background, history, and many preferences as to the kinds of experiences that you enjoy. These are the people with whom you share the most empathy. To your inner being, they are “Home.”
Of the other members of your soul family, less than half will typically be in physical incarnation at any given time. Many will live in other countries and in other parts of your country. When you meet them, you recognize them as people whom you feel are special in some way. There is a resonance within your own consciousness that is quite different to how you would react to a total stranger.
Sixth density is where fields of consciousness grow larger in preparation for an eventual quantum leap into the cosmic scale of seventh-density existence. Although a soul family is comprised of many individuals, it is also a large field of consciousness within its own right. Other examples of sixth-density consciousness include angels, saints, world teachers, and members of the Association of Light. It is also the source of the light of the universal Spirit, which can be contacted during deep meditation.
Sixth density is home to some of the greatest souls who have ever graced the earth with their presence. The field of consciousness of a world spiritual teacher, for example, is enormous in comparison to the field of consciousness of one typical human. It is because of this great capacity of consciousness, along with their ability to divide their attention into many parts at one time, which allows world teachers to service the needs of all those who call upon them in their times of need.
The Association of Light consists of many thousands of spiritual beings who, having mastered cosmic consciousness, then passed through the initiation of ascension. Their function today is to balance the energy of humanity. By attracting, conditioning and transmitting spiritual light into the world, they hold the balance of light for humanity so that we may continue our experience upon earth, uninterrupted by what would otherwise be the automatic, karmic reflections of the worst of humanity's actions.
Their example of giving service by attracting, conditioning and transmitting spiritual light into the world is one which we will all grow to follow as we develop spiritually.
The Cosmic Group of Densities
When the ladder of human evolution has been climbed to its ultimate, spiritual heights, there is only one place to go next in the grand scheme of Creation. That next step is to become a part of the intelligence of a planetary being.
Seventh Density – Planetary Consciousness
There is much more to Gaia, the planet Earth, than meets the eye. Seventh density is home to planet-size fields of consciousness. In the physical realm, she provides a home for humanity. Her spiritual heart, however, resides in this nonphysical, seventh-density realm of spiritual light.
It is not by chance that seventh density is where cosmic consciousness occurs. This is the first density layer devoted to the cosmic scale of consciousness. A human being can visit seventh density during a period of cosmic consciousness, but they cannot reside there permanently, as it is designed to be a realm which is home to fields of planet-sized consciousness.
Eighth Density – Solar Consciousness
The spiritual heart of the Sun is in eighth-density consciousness. What we see in third density is its physical body, which is a faint reflection of its eighth-density, spiritual radiance.
An insight into the true scale of the magnetic body of the Sun can be gained from the heliosphere. This is a magnetized sphere of energy which stretches, from the Sun, four times further than the outermost planet of Pluto in every direction. That’s a 22 billion mile-wide magnetic body which contains, sustains and cares for the planets and all life forms within its sphere.
As well as living within its third-density heliosphere, we are connected, at the eighth-density level of consciousness, with the spiritual being we call the Sun. You cannot be born within its sphere without first becoming a part of it energetically. We are, as stated correctly by ancient cultures, Children of the Sun.
Likewise, before you were first physically born on earth, your soul passed through an initiation of birth through the holy flame of the Logos of the Mother Earth. On a cosmic scale of consciousness, she is your spiritual mother, just as the Sun is your spiritual father. In the grand scheme of Creation, the Earth contains the closest consciousness to God within your reach, and the Sun contains the closest consciousness to God within your sight. Sending your love and gratitude to the Sun and the Earth not only makes perfect sense, it is the oldest spiritual practice on earth, and one of the most potent.
Ninth Density – The Galaxies and their Central Suns
A galaxy is a living cell within the consciousness of the universe. Like the Sun, which later gave birth to its planets, each galaxy gave birth to the suns within its massive body.
Although the central sun of each galaxy distributes the energy of consciousness from above to the manifest universe, the central suns do not radiate physical light and are therefore invisible to the human eye. (The photograph above shows a cluster of stars gathered near the center of that galaxy, not a central sun.)
To appreciate the scale of Creation, radio astronomy has given us some idea of the total count of galaxies in existence. Currently, there are believed to be between 100 and 125 billion galaxies in existence in the universe.
The Divine Group of Densities
Here we have a reflection of the creative triad of the consciousness of the original Infinite Being inserted into its own Creation.
First, there was Infinite Being as perfect, unchanging consciousness.
Second, Infinite Being entered an active mode by dividing itself into the three creative aspects of thought, feeling and motion or manifestation. This active expression of Infinite Being then created the twelve-density structure of the universe within its own consciousness.
Third, Infinite Being inserted itself into its own Creation. In order to create the fine detail and to manage all of Creation, it inserted its creative aspects into the Divine Group of Densities. Density twelve became the home of the Founders, density eleven became the home of the Watchers, and density ten became the home of the divine manifestation which would become the energetic hub of the manifest universe.
Once established within these higher densities, the consciousness of Infinite Being began to immerse itself deeper within each layer of consciousness, creating the galaxies, the solar systems, the planets and finally the biospheres and the life forms which can inhabit them. Humanity is one of the latest developments in this exploration into self-awareness because humanity, like the Creator, is endowed with the quality of self-awareness. Through humanity, the Creator can observe itself from deep within the complexity of its own creation.
Tenth Density ~ The Central Sun of the Universe
This is the manifestation of the original stage of the Creation. It is the expression of divine consciousness as the energetic hub of the created universe. Like the central suns of the galaxies, this source of all life in the universe is unmanifest in the physical realm.
Eleventh Density ~ The Watchers
These are the guardians of all of Creation. The Watchers, or Lords of Karma, ceaselessly observe and adjust the universe to keep it in perfect balance in accordance with the all-pervasive law of action and reaction.
The function of the Watchers is to protect all life in the universe. When necessary, they immerse themselves into the deeper densities in order to manage details or to initiate new projects within the universe. One such project has been ours: The creation of human consciousness and its gradual immersion into deeper, and therefore more sharply-focused, layers of density.
Like all layers of consciousness, we are directly connected to the Watchers. They are part of the spiritual lineage which connects us to the ultimate state from which we all came, that of Infinite Being.
In third-density physical existence, karma is often perceived as a negative because it reflects every thought and action, including fear and hate. However, it is simply a law of natural, perfect balance as it guarantees that all thoughts and actions are reflected. In physics, it is stated as the law, “Action and reaction are opposite and equal.” It is neither positive nor negative. It provides a neutral reflection of who you are now.
When a person moves from material consciousness into heart-centered consciousness, it may appear that their old karmic pattern has ended. It has. In its place is a reflection of the new person and their unconditional love for all. As an eleventh-density law, however, karma never ceases to exist. This property of reflectance is interwoven in the fabric of the living universe.
Twelfth Density – The Founders
The Founders of life in the universe, the Lords of Creation, exist within the highest density layer of the universe. It is from here that consciousness is loaded with energetic potential and cascades throughout all densities within Creation, distributing its potential as needed within each density along the way.
This cascade of the energy of consciousness passes through the Central Sun of the universe, then to the solar systems via the central suns of the galaxies. As it reaches the lower densities, it is also transformed into the energies that are required to maintain the existence of physical and etheric matter. As etheric energy, it sustains physical life and maintains the orbits of the planets and the electric particles within each atom.
Beyond the Twelfth – Infinite Being
Infinite Being is the indivisible One, the origin of All That Is. The twelve densities of this universe are held within its consciousness.
The Ultimate in Human Potential
As the one Creator immersed itself into the deeper layers of its own Creation, it progressively expanded the possibilities for exploration. Today, as expressions of Infinite Being, we function as self-aware humans, operating under unique conditions in this grand adventure called life.
As we gain human experience and progressively increase our awareness, we become spiritual humans. Then we become ascended humans and, eventually, we rejoin the larger, cosmic scheme of things on our path back to the original source from which we came.
Energetically, we exist, not just in third density, but on all density levels of Creation. We are one with Infinite Being in its ultimate state and we are connected to all of its levels of manifestation. While the One Creator is the original creative power, we are also endowed with the ability to create our reality as a living reflection of our thoughts, our beliefs, and our view of life and its possibilities. Within us, we have unlimited potential to create lives which are full of joy, purpose and meaning.
Within your life, you can choose any path that you determine, and, once you set an intention, a pathway opens up for you to fulfill that intention. As soon as you make a definite intention as to your new reality, the universe begins to reorganize itself around that new reality.
Now, to amplify that power of creativity to almost miraculous levels, consciously align yourself with your inner being and determine what is most important to you at that deepest level. Your fifth-density inner being is your soul level of consciousness. It is your own personal doorway to a full connection to Infinite Being. When you re-affirm your connection with your inner being, you are connecting to the very level of consciousness which has the most creative power.
In aligning with your inner self, you can fulfill any potential that you can imagine and become a living expression of your desired path through life. Your conscious alignment with such inner creative power will make synchronicity flow. It will open doorways along the way and dissolve barriers, making your pathway smooth and natural.
Your inner self is your personal connection to Infinite Being and it is the source of your spiritual empowerment. State consciously that you intend to work with the full range of your own consciousness and then watch miraclesunfold within your life!
