I am reading Ari's book (fabulous!!!
), the evolutionary stages of the soul section in the 1st segment and a few questions arise in me. And this topic may have already been addressed in the forum.
First, in determining a soul's stage (I was using myself as an example while reading) it seems I could relate to both the survival instinct of the consensus state (especially as it relates to money-food) and the 3rd stage individuated-1st stage spiritual, at this current time in my life.
Earlier in my life I stored a huge amount of anger and rebellion towards society, which would link with the individuated state. Those patterns led me to seek the spiritual--the only solace for my soul.
A couple years back I felt clear that the stage of my soul was (is) 1st stage spiritual, and yet as I read the descriptions of the states it's easy to become confused.
Is it possible for a soul to be dealing with consensus type issues (off and on) in the later stages of individuated or 1st stage spiritual? Or is that a signature of patriarchal karma within me that confuses the issue?
I am asking these questions to better understand the states, to thus help me in determining evolutionary states for the souls I astrologically work with.
