The Birth of UniverSOUL Consciousness


Spiritual awakening requires you to experience three significant phases of growth to help you evolve from ego based consciousness to soul consciousness. Much has been written about the process of enlightenment but Carl Jung, the famous Swiss psychiatrist of the 19th/20th century, called this process of awakening 'The Three Births of the Human Spirit'.

According to Jung, we undertake a journey of three “births” throughout our lifetime. The first of them being our physical birth which gives our soul its first tangible form. This is then followed by the birth of our identity- the birth of our ego. Then the third birth is of our spiritual consciousness, our spiritual self.

As I read about Jung's theory I quickly saw how these three births are mapped out in the chakra system. Our first two births is represented by the development of our survival centre- the base chakra, followed by the formation of our identity and ego in the sacral and solar plexus chakras. Following this we are are usually guided into experiencing divine chaos that serves to test the ego construct of our consciousness. The third birth is represented by the journey into the upper chambers of our energy anatomy, with the heart chakra acting as a divine channel for our rebirth in developing heart-based soul consciousness.

Our first two births shape us to face the outer world and develop a 'healthy' ego and the third spiritual rebirth serves to bring any over or under expression of our ego back into balance. This third spiritual birth is experienced by taking an inner journey to explore our internal map of self esteem and identity as soul. Usually this means we need to recalibrate our self esteem as it is our core of our spiritual state. If it imbalanced we cannot fully realise the power of the heart. It is our third birth that we come to explore our true potential as integrated beings and strive towards experiencing a spiritual birth of consciousness.

When I describe this sacred journey to my clients and students, I often describe that we must go through a process of inner review so that all our tools are in order for us to walk the path of the the sacred warrior. Our journey is towards wholeness within and communion with our true divine nature which needs to be activated if we are to become fully 'spiritually' empowered beings. That requires dedication, faith courage and a commitment unlike any other.

The issue with the world at present is that much of humanity is 'ego' empowered instead of soul empowered and hence cosmic divine chaos is hitting our lower chakras to destabalise humanity and all the worlds systems that have been running with an over expression in ego based consciousness. This is shaking things up so we can come back into balance and those committed to their ego will feel it most.

Just as we individually need to journey and be spiritually reborn, so to does the world collectively right now. Our collective spiritual potential will only be realised if we bring the over expression of greed, separation, personal power and materialism into balance. When we are too caught up on the material world we do not allow room for the spiritual world to fill us and allow us to experience true wholeness of being. The chaos that we see int he world is helping us collectively recalibrate and set our compass so that we can finally break though into the higher echelons of our consciousness and activate our true spiritual potential.
