[Question] what are the 7 levels of real essence contact?
[Michael Entity] Becoming more intimate and aware of your Essence could be described by these 7 stages below. We are describing them in terms of the level of consciousness brought to the process of Choice.
ONE: Conscious Choice: if you are aware that you are making a choice, you are at least within the first stage of Essence contact
TWO: Self-Nurturing Choice: if you are aware that you are choosing, and that your choices are intended to nurture yourself, then you are at least within the second stage of Essence Contact.
THREE: Pleasurable Choice: if you are aware that you are choosing, that your choices are intended to nurture, and that your navigation is pointed toward pleasurable experiences, then you are within at least the 3 stage of Essence Contact.
FOUR: Causal Choice: if you are aware that you are choosing, that your choices are intended to nurture, that your navigation is intended to bring pleasure, and that all of this can be considered in the context of its impact on others and your probabilities (future), then you are at least within the 4th stages of Essence Contact.
FIVE: Truthful Choices: building upon the previous four levels or stages, we would describe the 5th Stage as that of being incapable of deceiving yourself or others, or making choices based upon lies that you have come to rely upon as truths about yourself or others in ways that cause harm, isolation, pain, boredom, or lack of fulfillment. We rarely see a full movement into or beyond this 5th Stage.
SIXTH: Trustful Choices: building upon the previous 5 stages, this stage describes a sense of peace and trust, not only in your personal awareness and sense of capabilities within the life, but upon your Essence as a part of your resource for knowledge and history. This is not a blindness or moments of leaping into the unknown, but of a deep peace that your intuition and inner guidance is exactly what is appropriate for you, and that if you were discover differently, you would trust that you simply recalibarate.
SEVEN: Playful Choice: this is a level of living that builds upon the previous 6 levels and has no fear. Fear is used as a form of information, not imprisonment or paralyzation. It is a deep recognition of your existence before, within, and beyond this Personality and lifetime, and life is then experienced as a massive opportunity to play, whatever that may mean for you.
There are other ways to describe these 7 stages of intimacy and embrace of Essence by Personality, but this is one way that is applicable and valid.
