Awareness aware of itself”



This simple map can assist you to identify what strata of your own consciousness you have entered—based on the Hathors’ point of view. With this knowledge, and the tools imparted during this Intensive, you can Psycho-navigate your own depths with greater confidence.

This map shows how different levels of your consciousness interconnect, especially the inner domains of experience.

The first level is the Ego, your sense of personal identity. It “lives” and operates in the shallow areas of your being. It has been forged from your personal history and personal beliefs. It is how most of us interact—at the surface of things. It is not generally in touch with the deeper levels of your inner worlds and may, in fact, become threatened by the fathomless nature of them.

Your Psyche (or subconscious mind) dwells beneath the surface of your conscious awareness. Thus it is able to be an intermediary between your conscious mind and the deeper realms within you. When you dream at night, it is through your psyche that these messengers of the deep communicate with you. It is at the level of the psyche—and below—that the inner senses present themselves. Just as your five senses receive sensory impressions from the outside world, your inner senses receive impressions from your inner worlds. When you encounter a sensory impression during meditation or dreams, you are experiencing a sensory display. They may seem real, but they are not.

Your Substrate Consciousness is your Deep Unconscious Mind. It is a vast reservoir of impressions and energies from past experiences that can affect your either positively or negatively. The Hathors have referred to these types of patterns as Dimensional Tendencies.

As you move deeper inside, past the Substrate Consciousness towards Pure Consciousness, you begin to encounter The Five Pure Lights, which radiate two other pure lights (i.e., gold and silver) during internal alchemical processes.  This is your ground luminosity and dwells at the edge of Pure Consciousness.

The last level (in this map) is Pure Consciousness itself—the Mother/Birther of all things. All dualities are resolved at this level, and there are no internal conflicts because the duality of subject and object simply does not exist. You experience your Self in a very different manner than when you are fixated on your Ego. There is no tension or contraction. You are simply awareness being aware of itself. In the yogas of ancient India this type of awareness is said to have three qualities referred to as Sat Chit Ananda (or Existence, Transcendental Knowledge and Bliss).

If you interact with the world from the standpoint of Pure Consciousness, your interactions will be very different than when you respond  solely from your Ego. For one, you will feel less challenged by situations around you. And in the advanced states of Spatial Cognizance (i.e. fully anchored in the ground of your being, or Pure Consciousness), you will see the entire world as well as The Multiverse for what it is—a transient and magical display of light. You do not identify with any phenomena of the sensory-based world, including the phenomena within your body, as you are grounded in your root consciousness. However—and this is a vitally important point—unlike psychotic states, which are mental aberrations, in Spatial Cognizance you see the illusory nature of the world as well as The Multiverse; but you are able to negotiate the illusions in appropriate ways—meaning you respond to sensory information appropriately as a biological organism and respond to social cues in a resourceful and relevant manner.
