By Jenny Schiltz, 11/23/2016 The other day as I was waking I saw very clearly in my mind a metal circular door, with lots of markings. I found myself standing in front of it and as I stood there waiting for it to open I heard clearly “put your hand on it”. Laughing to myself […]

The Four Stages of Spiritual Growth – Victimhood to True Empowerment – Chip Richards – 8-17-16

A Guide for the journey from Victimhood to True Empowerment

Einstein has a well-shared quote in our modern day which says, “we cannot solve a problem with the same level of consciousness that created it.” This is a powerful realisation for humanity to embrace as we explore pathways to regenerate the vitality of our living planet and build systems for living that will sustain us harmoniously into the future. But if a shift in consciousness is what is required… how do we actually do (or be) that? How do we create a shift in who we are being such that it positively impacts our visions and our actions in the world? And how do we gauge our progress on the path?

In recent times, our path of personal and planetary development has been influenced by a myriad of different perspectives in science, spirituality, indigenous wisdom and multiple schools of self awareness, self development, movement and thought. Ancient and modern practices have merged with the intent of helping us shed limiting patterns and past experience in order to more powerfully align with the infinite possibilities of life.

In the mid 1980’s, author and founder of Agape International Spiritual Center Michael Beckwith introduced a simple model for understanding the Four Stages of Spiritual Growth and Development. While this is not the only guide to understand the stages of human consciousness, the context of Beckwith’s model is a practical and empowering perspective on our journey from victim-hood to empowerment, connection and oneness with the greater forces of life. Let’s take a look.


Ancient and modern practices have merged to help us align more powerfully with the infinite possibilities of life.

Stage one: ‘TO ME’

The first stage of spiritual development is what Beckwith calls the ‘To Me’ stage. It’s also referred to as the victim stage as it is an early level of awareness where our primary perception is that life is happening ‘to us’. Like a child new to the world, or someone who has not yet claimed full responsibility for his/her life, in the ‘To Me’ stage we experience ourselves at the effect of the people and circumstances of our life. There are times in each of our lives when we feel like we are on the receiving end of challenges, opportunities, relationships, job assignments, etc. and while we may have desires for a different circumstance, at the time it really feels as though ‘life is happening to us’.

As with each of the four stages, in order to move from one stage to the next, Beckwith tells us we must be willing to let go of something en route to claiming a new aspect of who we really are. In order to move from the ‘To Me’ stage of our development into stage two, what we must be willing to let go of… is blame. After reacting, resisting and blaming others (or life itself) for our circumstance, eventually we come to a place where we are ready to claim more of a sense of personal responsibility and become more of a generative force in our life. Through choice or necessity we make a shift and begin to experience ourselves taking matters of our life into our own hands.

Stage one is also referred to as the victim stage
Like a child new to the world, Stage 1 feels like life is happening “To Me.”

Stage two: ‘BY ME’

Even if we are fully justified to blame others for our current situation, there comes a time when we must realise that as long as we are making others responsible for our circumstance, we are giving away our power and limiting our ability to make the necessary changes. As we let go of the need to blame anyone (including ourselves!) for where we are, we open ourselves to shift into our next stage of development, becoming active manifestors of the path we truly want/need to be on.

During stage two, the ‘By Me’ phase of our journey, we may initially feel stretched or challenged by our circumstance, but this challenge is often what is needed for us to dig deeper and become a causative agent in our experience. This is the stage of the journey where we get to discover that we are far more capable than we realised. We are not victims of circumstance but rather creators of it.

The ‘By Me’ stage of development is often a building (or rebuilding) phase, where our actions must be grounded, real, focused and self-driven. Breakthroughs in this arena often require focused determination (and sometimes sweat!) and they leave us with the sense of personal accomplishment, “I did it! I can do it!”. In the stage of ‘By Me’, we move past victim-hood and begin to emerge with a sense of personal ownership of the life we create, earn, cause and achieve. This is a powerful step on the path.


In the “By Me” Stage, we take responsibility as active creators of our reality.

Stage three: ‘THROUGH ME’

When we have worked hard at developing skills in any activity or endeavor (from music to sports to mathematics), there is a moment when we cross over from pure focused effort to a feeling of grace and flow with what we are doing. We may have been building skills and trying the same thing over and over for quite some time, when suddenly, we go from playing the music to feeling as though the music is actually playing through us. We go from being the surfer using our skills to surf the wave, to feeling the energy of the ocean guiding our flow upon it. From being the writer of the story, to feeling as though the creative essence of the story itself is expressing through our pen onto the page.

When we enter ‘Through Me’ consciousness we go from a sense of personal significance grounded in our own achievements, to feeling a sense of humility about being part of something greater than ourselves. In order to move from the ‘By Me’ stage into stage three, what we must be willing to let go of is our need for control. As we let go of having to be the soul generator and controller of each outcome, we open ourselves up to discover a new sense of trust and connectedness to the bigger story/currents/song ready to flow through us.

Sometimes the experience of ‘Through Me’ comes as a graceful extension of personal exertion, and sometimes it arrives more abruptly as we reach the limit of our own personal skills or abilities and have no choice but to surrender, opening ourselves up to be conduits or instruments of the higher energetic forces within.

Stage four: ‘AS ME’

When we let go of blame and move from our perception of life as something that happens ‘To Me’, we begin to discover our true power in life happens ‘By Me’. When we let go of the need to control, we move from our experience of life happening ‘By Me’, to discovering our connection to the greater powers of life moving ‘Through Me’. As we allow our individual expression to merge completely with the energy we are experiencing or creating in the world, we realise we are actually part of the infinite creative force of the universe, which is expressing and experiencing itself individualised ‘As Me’.I am God/spirit/universe/nature/consciousness.

As we travel through the third stage of our development and experience a sense of the greater flow moving ‘Through Me’ consistently in life or endeavour, we begin to reach this fourth leaping-off point and the simple but profound realisation that whatever is moving ‘Through Me’ is also inside of me. That this greater energetic force and I are actually made of the same source material. Like a ray of the sun or a wave in the ocean, I am actually an individualised expression of this greater force, which is now moving, breathing and acting in the world ‘As Me’.

A picture must possess a real power to generate light, and for a long time now I’ve been conscious of expressing myself through light, or rather in light. – Henri Matisse

To move beyond the experience of life occurring ‘Through Me’ and into the ‘As Me’ stage of spiritual development, what we must be willing to let go of is our sense of separation. As we do this (or rather ‘be’ this), we open ourselves to discover the experience of genuine unity or oneness in life and endeavor. We release our perception of the infinite nature of the universe as a causative energy that exists outside of us, and we open ourselves to experience this infinite nature in and ‘as’ our very being. The music, the ocean, the story are not only moving ‘Through Me’… they are the living expression of who I am. This is flow in its greatest sense and many would say it is our ultimate reason for being here. Through our actions, experiences, relationships and being, to remember and experience ourselves as unique expressions of the absolute.

The music, the ocean, the story are not only moving ‘Through Me’… they are the living expression of who I am

Takeaways and Reflection

We each have experiences of these stages of development at different times in different areas of our life. Whether or not we arrive at a permanent state of ‘As Me’ in every aspect of our existence, it is powerful to consider what shifts we can make within ourselves to support our steps along the path.

Stage one: ‘To Me’

Life is a series of events, relationships and circumstances that happen to me.
In order to move to beyond stage one, I must be willing to let go of: blame.
In doing so, I claim/discover: responsibility and personal empowerment.

Stage two: ‘By Me’

I move into my role as a manifestor, claiming my ability to create and influence my circumstance in life.
In order to move beyond stage two, I must be willing to let go of: control.
In doing so, I discover: trust and connection with energetic forces beyond my individual self.

Stage three: ‘Through Me’

I am an instrument and conduit for Life to move and express through me.
In order to move beyond stage three, I must be willing to let go of: separation.
In doing so, I discover: oneness.

Stage four: ‘As Me’

I and the infinite forces of the universe are ONE. I am God/spirit/life, being me. At once unique and intrinsically part of the greater whole. I am one with all of life.

We each have experiences of these stages of development at different times in different areas of our life
We each have experiences of these stages of development at different times in different areas of our life.

Is there an area of your life that you are currently seeking to create a shift in your experience?

If so, what stage of development would you currently place yourself in this area?
What might you need to let go of or claim in order to cause a shift in your own consciousness and open the path for your next stage of experience?

Each one of us is Life personalized. We are each Life as a person; therefore, each one of us contains within himself all the intelligence, the power, the faculties and the instruments for the expression of Life… To know that Life became you for a purpose and that you occupy a place no one else in all the world occupies. – Dan Custer (The Miracle of Mind Power)

Positive Vibration   –   7 Days to a More Empowered Life

by Cindy Griffith

A positive vibration is one of the most important factors in our quality of life and often the least understood. Yes, everyone talks of “feeling someone else’s vibes” but how often do you think about how our “vibes” affect your life. The quality of our positive vibration is controlled through thought and action. With a simple daily practice, we begin to see how raising our vibrations can change our mental and emotional outlook, thus changing to a more empowered life.

Natalie Glasson ~ Mother Mary : Gentle Practices for Self-Love and Empowerment

A very soft and gentle love [exudes] from the Angelic Kingdom, guided by the Cosmic Goddess Beings.
This love is so seemingly mild and delicate that it could be completely ignored and dismissed as being weak, or as not holding the presence of power expected from the Creator’s vibration of love.
It is this love vibration that holds power in its gentleness and delicate vibrations. It requires your focus and openness [in order] to accept and recognize the love.
Guided by the Cosmic Goddess Beings, the Angelic Kingdom is emanating a love vibration, as a healing and further awakening, for those ready to embrace a greater presence of love in their realities.
 *

[It is] as if the Angelic Kingdom is singing a beautiful cherished lullaby, only whispering it into the universe of the Creator to souls who are ready to receive. This is the love vibration being transmitted now.

 *
It is so sacred, holy, cherished and treasured. [It holds] such profound wisdom, energetic codes and enlightening insights. [These] seep so gently, as if not wishing to disturb anything, simply finding their way to where they need to be.
This love is youthful, innocent, pure and subtle. It requires and asks those ready to acknowledge a purer aspect of love within them[selves], to call it forth and to be enveloped.
*
This love wave is intended for every soul and will reach every soul with divine timing. In this instant, it is being called forth by souls upon the Earth who are awake, aware and mastering their being, loving themselves and others unconditionally.
*

[These souls may] still be experiencing stagnation or resistance to fully embracing themselves, life and the Creator, [thus hindering their ability] to experience freedom from issues of pain or seemingly immovable energy.

 *
Do not doubt your worthiness to receive this love vibration, for it is flowing to support your needs, bringing a greater sense of freedom and release to your being and reality.Imagine, acknowledge or sense yourself receiving this wave or mist of love from the Angelic Kingdom, akin to a lullaby whispered so gently. The love embraces you.
*
You may hardly feel, sense or acknowledge it. But as its presence grows around you and as you open your heart chakra to the energy, you may be touched by its innocence and purity, as if witnessing the most sacred blessing of your being and the Creator.
It is akin to the first breath of love from the Creator, so nurturing and nourishing. Even though it may seem weak and faint, it is deeply precious and valued by you and your soul. You may wish to say:
*
‘I am worthy of receiving the gentle, subtle lullaby whisper of love, guided by the Cosmic Goddess Beings from the Angelic Kingdom. I recognize the purity and preciousness of this vibration of love.‘As I open my heart, this love vibration reminds me of how precious, sacred, holy and treasured I am on all levels of my being, especially at the level of truth of the Creator within my being.‘In receiving this love vibration I am ready to value, cherish and treasure myself as the truth and pure love of my being, eternally present. Thank you.’
*
The energy of the Angelic Kingdom, guided by the Cosmic Goddess Beings who are representatives of the holy feminine vibrations in existence within all, send this message upon a gentle wind that may be ignored or unvalued by some because it doesn’t [seem to] hold a powerful impact.On the contrary, its impact is immensely powerful, as you are asked by your own being, as you call for this energy to gently and humbly remind you of the immense value of your soul and of your sacred presence upon the Earth.
*

[We encourage you] to recognize the divine within you, how subtle and powerful you are and how treasured and pure your being is.

 *
The Angelic Kingdom and Cosmic Goddess Beings come forth with a very powerful reminder to trigger and ask you to cherish and humbly appreciate yourself and your divine essence.They ask that you call upon their energy using the above invocation. Allow their lullaby, like a whispered love wave, to surround you, entering into your heart chakra; activating, achieving and healing all that is needed, thus creating an experience of freedom within your being.
*
Remember this energy is subtle, so you may not even recognize the shifts and healing taking place, and might be asked to simply hold faith and trust in the process and influence of the energy.Understanding this love vibration is almost impossible. It can simply be described as purity. So let yourself be free from the experience of ‘understanding’ as you embark on this unification and activation.
*
It is my wish to share with you the gentle, subtle practices and inspiration, which aid the same subtle activations, shifts and realizations within your being. It is these subtle shifts of energy, consciousness and beliefs, which have the greatest impact upon your spiritual ascension. This is why I, Mother Mary, come forth with such gentleness to support and assist you now.
Often within our beings there is a resistance to noticing and accepting the gentleness, subtlety and quietness of our energies, thoughts, actions, and healing or retuning processes. In many ways an unwillingness to recognize the power of such subtleties symbolizes a resistance to accept one’s true spiritual power and magnificent divinity.
*
By honoring and cherishing the subtle shifts of awareness, consciousness, healing, love and self-acceptance within you, you awaken the greater power of your truth.
*
Your heart chakra, in fact all of your chakras and your entire being, are a synthesis of divine energy vibrations and aspects of the Creator. There is a synthesis of diversity and oneness within your being which can be challenging to recognize, especially when faced with the impact of separation, which inhabitancy of a physical body can portray.
*
I bring into the clarity of your mind and thought patterns the image of a tree trunk. When it has been cut down and you are able to view within the trunk, you notice ring after ring extending from the core of the trunk, creating ever-flowing and expanding circles upon circles – each one valuable, and yet creating a whole.
*
Now I invite you to imagine your heart chakra in this way. In the center of your heart chakra would be the core which represents the Creator. Then the next ring of light surrounding the core may be your soul group energy. The following ring could be the energy of your soul, and then your personality.
*
Imagine how many rings there may be, for there may be a ring for your Angelic body and connection to the Angelic Kingdom, your emotional body, the universal energies, cosmic energies, Ascended Master body, Fairy body and so forth.
The list of possibilities is endless because you are recognizing all aspects and parts of your being and energy. You are the Creator, so that includes everything – all energies upon the inner planes, and all vibrations of light.
*
Through this practice you can simultaneously acknowledge the many aspects of your being. For example, [acknowledge] your vibration of abundance or perfect health, while recognizing yourself as a whole and unified being of light. You do not need to know the exact order of the rings of light. Simply be inspired by whatever comes forth to be acknowledged.
Begin by saying: ‘I acknowledge, activate and accept the Creator.’ Imagine the core within your heart chakra as a source of the Creator. Then a new ring of light appears around the core.
*
Acknowledge this ring with the same words and the energy it emanates. Please do not think of this as an exercise of discovery where you must give to yourself correct answers. Be inspired by what comes forth and enjoy the freedom of not needing to gain accuracy and understanding.
Continue with this process for as long as you wish. Notice how your entire being becomes filled with such supreme light which is simultaneously you and the Creator.
*
As souls on the Earth and the inner planes, our greatest gift and ability are those of giving and receiving. We are always in the divine flow of the Creator, and therefore have a natural ability to give and receive the Creator in abundance.
This is a very powerful ability to recognize within your being as a natural talent you possess. With this recognition comes the understanding of needing to practice your ability.
*
I wish to invite you to practice your ability in a sanctuary of safety, guided and supported by your guides and inner-plane light beings. In this way there is no fear but only the experience.Allow yourself to think of or feel a guide, your community of guides or an energy you wish to connect with. It can be an individual angel, master or guide, or a collective energy. Simply invite your chosen energy to be present with you.
*
‘I invite _______ to be present with me; to support, nurture and nourish me; sharing your love, light and wisdom with me. Thank you.’
*
Imagine, sense or acknowledge the energy embracing you. Reach your hands out in a cupped shape as a gesture of receiving. Let your hands be filled with light. Then place your hands flat on your heart chakra in a gesture of giving the energy to yourself and your heart.
*
The important key is your breathing, as this will intensify the process. As you receive with your hands cupped, inhale. Place your hands upon your heart chakra. Only when you feel your hands touching and in contact with your chest and heart chakra do you exhale, imagining the light flowing into your heart and entire being. Now inhale as you reach your hands out in front of you as you receive the light, then exhale only when your hands have returned to your heart chakra. Then continue in this motion for as long as you wish.
*
You may feel your heart expanding. You are practicing the ability of receiving and giving. To give to yourself is a very powerful process. It is also important to remember that receiving and giving can be an instant process. There is no need for you to wait for your cupped hands to be filled with light; it is instantaneous as soon as you set the intention. This is also [true] for [all of] your reality and experiences.
*
Please know I am here supporting you eternally,
*
I am Mother Mary, In divine blessings and love.
