What are Levels of Consciousness?

Many people need clarification on what Levels of Consciousness mean or how the scale's progression happens. This article will explain the fundamental concept of the Level of Consciousness.


The Levels of Consciousness (LOC) can be easy to grasp if you have first-hand experience moving through a significant part of the scale or having experienced significant jumps up the scale. The most common pattern we’ve found after calibrating hundreds of people who are into meditation, self-empowerment, personal development, etc., is that they tend to come into this life somewhere in the LOC Inner Will or LOC Allowance. Since the average level until recently has been significantly lower than that, the common thing we see is that after birth, the LOC starts to descend towards the average level, and many times it even goes far below the average level because of the “negative momentum” the descent has created.


When the pure consciousness of a newborn baby is exposed to the “polluted” Mass Consciousness, the person takes in more and more of the dysfunctional belief systems and programming from the Programmed and Reactive Mind of the Mass Consciousness and authority figures around them. The descent down the Levels of Consciousness continues until a bottom point is reached. This is where you’ve “had enough,” and you start taking back control of your life from the Programmed and Reactive Mind of the Mass Consciousness. This is where you begin to “clean up your act” vibrationally and think and act more independently from the influence of the dysfunctional low-level “norm” of Mass Consciousness. This is the great turning point many people fitting this profile have experienced in their lives.


Then starts the climb of consciousness, and for many, this has been a challenging climb. Maybe you’ve gone through a severe illness, or you’ve had your heart severely broken repeatedly. This is how life keeps pushing your buttons and breaks you more and more open as you progress up the Levels of Consciousness. Since many people misunderstand what it means to progress up the scale, we will use an analogy to describe it.

The Ocean of Consciousness Analogy

Imagine the whole Map of Spirituality as the layers of the ocean. Below LOC Positivity is so deep that no sunlight reaches that level. This layer of the ocean is filled with bottom feeders and all sorts of weird creatures fumbling around in the dark. People born into and “native” to this level will think it’s natural to be in the dark. However, people born at higher levels who have gradually descended to the sub-LOC Positivity level will have an inkling that “something is not right.” They will remember deep inside that something else is possible.

Right above LOC Positivity is a different world that is still dim, but at least enough sunlight comes through so that shadows and silhouettes are visible. Navigating toward the light is now possible and avoiding being preyed upon is easier. Life is still hard and full of struggle in LOC's Positivity and Trust, but at least you now have the opportunity to move towards the light. In contrast, below LOC Positivity, you hardly remember that there was even such a thing as light. It all seemed hopeless and unchangeable.

Moving up the Levels of Consciousness has little to do with reading books or intellectual knowledge. It has everything to do with removing dysfunctional core beliefs and creating space for more of the light of Consciousness to shine through unfiltered. For example, if you go around expecting a lot from other people, you will be disappointed and angry again and again. You will be caught up in all sorts of dramas on the surface “story level” of what is happening. However, if you remove the “core belief” of having expectations, all the anger, disappointment, and drama on the surface will suddenly disappear. You will live in a different world because you just shifted your Level of Consciousness dramatically.

As we descend the levels of consciousness after birth, our vision becomes more and more distorted by all the dysfunctional beliefs we pick up along the way that become lodged deep inside us. Progressing up the Levels of Consciousness is all about removing dysfunctional core beliefs. As they go, they are automatically replaced by the inherent correct vision in alignment with how our Higher Self sees it. As you move into the LOC's Inner Will and Allowance and even LOC's Inner Light and Inner Wisdom, you will see things more clearly and in detail. It’s still well below the surface of the ocean, but a lot more light comes through here, and life feels much more supported and a lot more enjoyable than at the lower levels.

When you reach the LOC's Inner Love and Unity and even lower LOC Presence, you swim around right below the surface in almost full daylight. This is where the real mystery can start to happen. In glimpses, you will no longer identify with the body but the ocean of consciousness itself. As you progress even higher and breach the surface in the LOC's Awareness and beyond, you will paradoxically realize that you were the ocean all along. All the levels were contained within you.

Changing the TV Channel

Progressing up the scale is not about how much you “know” but rather about removing ingrained “knowledge” that distorts your vision and blocks your light. Each main level of consciousness is like a different TV channel. When you change your level of consciousness, you are changing the “TV channel” that is playing out your life. If you like horror, stay below LOC Positivity; if you prefer drama, the LOC's Positivity, Trust, Inner Will, and Allowance are good for that, but if you like light comedy, I recommend the LOC's Inner Wisdom, Inner Love, and Unity. If you want it all at once without really being touched by it, then move into the bandwidth of LOC's Awareness to Full Consciousness.

Each level contains certain “lessons” that will repeat until you’ve learned them. This is called Karmic or Mind’s Conditioning. Then you move out of that level and into the next one. It’s like a School of Life with different classes and levels. The lower-level lessons are usually more challenging and less subtle than the higher-level lessons. To progress as quickly as possible, you need to re-prioritize your life so that movement up the scale becomes your number one priority.
