Note: titles are given for identification purposes only - you may see the energies very differently.
The Transcendent (Unmanifest)
The Zero, nothingness
Before anything became, the Void was.
And then something that is not void... a shift, a tremor, the hint of a sound, the germination of possibility... a spark in the void:
And, suddenly, darkness convulses into light. Consciousness explodes into the Void, and begins to create a reflection of itself.
The Seraphim (Angelic Realms)
As the Divine Consciousness reaches out in that cataclysmic explosion of energy we call the Big Bang, It creates different aspects of Itself: the Shining Ones - Yin and Yang (feminine and masculine principles); ecstasy; inspiration, abundance; compassion and love; majesty, aspiration, and connection.
The Fundamental Laws
Next to form are the fundamental laws that underpin all reality, and which human minds usually see as polarities. However, each continuum is a whole: the Beginning is part of the End, the End is part of the Beginning - both are part of the underlying Unity of the divine hologram. There is no division, so Chaos and Order, Growth and Decay, and Spacetime ... all part of the essential unity of creation.
At the same time these Devas represent the four fundamental interactions of the universe - gravity, electromagnetism, and the nuclear strong and weak forces.
Similarly, the elements - Fire, Air, Water, and Earth, represent the building blocks of matter. We see them today as chemical elements - hydrogen, oxygen etc, the atomic value of each making up the periodic table. But the Fifth Element, Spirit, indicates that whatever we call them, however we see them, it is all part of the One Spirit.
The emanations of Divinity continue to move outward energetically, forming Qualities of the Unity. We call them names such as rebirth and metamorphosis, courage, guardianship, witnessing.
Electromagnetic energies and emotions surge through the grid; elementals hover on invisible wings. Consciousness now looks for a different challenge, and begins to slow down the rate of vibration (sound, light). This creates slower, heavier vibrations...
Finally we encounter the Devas of the Shadow. In energetic terms, labelling something 'evil' or 'good' is nonsensical. It is only mankind that makes this sort of value-judgement. However, if we allow ourselves to hook into that challenging energy, acting it out - those acts can be seen as evil. The Devas of the Shadow allow us the choice: do we act out malevolence, anger, denial, resistance, deceit, fear (who does not fear that walk into the Valley of Shadow?), or do we choose compassion and love? In the end, it is up to us.
The Immanent (Manifest)
Once the rate of vibration has reached the level of physical manifestation, the Divine Consciousness gathers itself... reaches through from the Other ... and creates the cosmos, its energy made manifest.
From that swirling burst of gaseous energy form the stars, the nebulae and, in an obscure part of one of the magnificent spiral nebulas, our Sun flames into being.
The Sun's acolytes, the planets that took form around this small star, take shape. Mercury, Venus, Earth (Gaia) and her moon; Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
In a conscious reflection of the Fundamental Laws of the Universe, we see the four seasons of Earth.
The Kingdoms of Life on Earth
Reflecting the periodic table above, the manifested energy creates its wondrous diversity of minerals, plants, animals, insects ... and humanity.
Gaia's different environments – from the highest point (mountains) to the deepest, in the oceans; valleys, which offer us safe havens; the World Tree, holding the earth within its roots; the rich harvest of the prairie and the silence of the desert; the weather and its power; and the cave, where we first learnt to express our wonder at the earth and its marvels in pigment.
Devas of the Threshold
The seed is the gateway to the Devas of the Invisible. We can still see cells through our extended eyes, but not even the most powerful electron microscopecan can enter the atomic realm. We posit its existence only - as well as the electrons and neutrons thgat swirl around the minute nucleus. Still smaller, too small for our minds to comprehend and thus even more mysterious, we next come to the quantum level, with its paradoxical laws, its uncertainties, and constant 'zero point' energy field.
Beyond the quantum field, we encounter the most mysterious field of all, the missing mass of the cosmos - what scientists at present call 'dark energy', within which - if we allow ourselves to be there in full surrender - we might sense the heartbeat of the universe.
