The Dimensions of Consciousness



A dimension is a state of consciousness.

Indigos were born on the Indigo or Blue ray of incarnation and evolution

but into 3-D bodies with their consciousness firmly in the 4th or 5th dimension.

Crystals are born with their consciousness in the 6th dimension.


Dimensions" are a means of organizing different planes of existence according to their vibratory rate.

Each dimension has certain sets of laws and principles that are specific to the frequency of that dimension.


Table 1.  Dimensions and their Characteristics





The first dimension of space.  Awareness as a point.  The mineral kingdom resonates to this level of consciousness.  The minerals, water and genetic code in human bodies resonates to this level.


The second dimension of space.  Awareness of point and line.  The plant kingdom and lower animal kingdom resonates to this level.  These beings are only conscious of their species' identity and their need for feeding, fighting, and procreation. Live solely within the awareness of the moment.  Human second dimensional consciousness is centered in the lower brain that directs the autonomic nervous system to regulate and maintain life support functions.


The third dimension of space.  Awareness of point, line, width and breadth, height and volume.  Human beings and the higher animal kingdom resonates to this level.  Awareness of oneself as a separate and unique individual – very little awareness of the interconnectedness of beings and actions.  The third dimension is locked in a time/space and cause/effect paradigm through the individual human souls.   As humans we have the ability to remember the past and the future while remaining aware of the present. However, while using only our third dimensional consciousness much of our past remains forgotten in our unconscious mind and we usually feel a sense of separation from the whole, a feeling of limitation in achieving our desires, and a need to work hard to accomplish our goals.


Awareness of point, line, width and breadth, height, volume and time.  The fourth dimension is also known as the astral plane.  The primary consciousness of this dimension is in the astral body, which is also known as the "higher human".  The astral body is of a higher vibration than the physical body and is in a form that is known as etheric.  The 4th D is the realm of the unconscious mind.  Our fourth dimensional astral bodies possess advanced dreaming, imagination, psychic ability, intuition, magic, and creativity. As we expand our mind to be conscious of our unconscious mind, we can experience more and more of these qualities while in our physical form.

At this level, there is the beginning awareness of the Universal Law of One or Unity Consciousness: whatever affects one of us affects of all of us. Indigos carry this awareness, which is the key to multi-dimensionality, and it leads them to be warriors for causes that heal the Earth.  Realisation and practice that no one is greater than the other and that group consciousness is the path to the future.  We must all cooperate for the good of all to create a better Earth.


Awareness of point, line, width and breadth, height, volume, time and spirit.  Linear time and space do not bind consciousness here.  There is NO illusion of separation or limitation. Instead, there is a constant experience of the One-ness of God/Goddess/All That Is.  On the fifth dimension we live in Unconditional Love, Unconditional Forgiveness, and Unconditional Acceptance. We hold no judgement, guilt, or negativity towards the "lower" portions or aspects of ourselves that are striving to remember our "Higher Selves".  At this level, we are free to create new ways of thinking/being/doing through the seeds of unity consciousness.


The Christed Child or Magical Child (Crystal consciousness) has access to their magical and spiritual aspects, and a playfulness of life.  Life is seen as magical and blessed.  All life is directed and advanced through the work of spirit. The person in the 6th D surrenders to the flow of spirit’s evolution while exercising the right to be a creator on an individual level.


Fully aware of the nature of the spirited mission of the being.  Christed Adult (Crystal Adult) – ready to take on a planetary mission as a “carer of higher dimension consciousness to others,” e.g. through teaching and healing on a big scale or carrying the energy in one’s aura so that others can access it on a big scale.



8th D - Archetypal level of consciousness when the person has full control over the story of Life on Earth. 

9th D - Full cosmic consciousness – has full responsibility for stewardship of the planet.  The 9th D incorporates the 8th.


Has responsibilities at the solar level.


Galactic level of consciousness is achieved.


Gold ray of Universal Consciousness is inaugurated by being a Full Universal Being – Universal level of consciousness is achieved.  You have returned to Source and are in Unity Consciousness with the physical form of your Local Universe.

 Explanation follows

A kingdom is an archetype of nature.  According to the Ancient Wisdom, the objective existence of the Absolute or Divine began with just three aspects, Will or Intention, Love or Consciousness and Form.   The function of the Absolute's First Aspect, Divine Will is to create an hierarchical division of the Absolute's life-force or energy, through the Elemental gods/creators, who are an evolutionary life form corresponding to the Divine Will.    The task of the elemental gods is to divide all categories of life into seven archetypal Kingdoms of nature or groups of nature.



A dimension is a state of consciousness and a means of organizing different planes of existence according to the vibratory rate of that which exists. Each dimension has certain sets of laws and principles that are specific to the frequency of that dimension.   Circular time means three dimensions cubed or 3 x 3 x 3 dimensions which = 27. Circular Time Theory states that over a very long period of time things will repeat.  Over a very long period of time things will repeat almost exactly.

All human beings are multi-dimensional beings of light with a visible dense physical body which some of their consciousness has been projected into, and have the potential to access the first 5 dimensions.  Usually many of us are comfortable with our awareness being at 3-D level, but with spiritual application (i.e. meditation and reflection and asking our spirit guides for assistance) one can access the 4th dimension usually referred to as the astral plane or "time", and even the 5th dimension.   Indigos and Crystals can access the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th dimensions.  Some Crystals can access the higher dimensions.

Click on the link below and go to the second page and you find detailed qualities of the 5 dimensions with reference to human beings.

Dimensions are both states of consciousness and spatial dimensions.  Referring to Table 2 above, rocks, plants, animals and human beings are obviously 3-D forms.  Please note that Table 2 refers to dimensional awareness rather than to spatial dimensions.  For example, a plant is matter existing in 3 dimensions (with width, height and breadth) but it has a "consciousness" or awareness of the 2nd dimension only.  Likewise, human beings have 3-D consciousness, but some can access the 4th dimension and higher levels of consciousness.  3-D consciousness means seeing the world from the perspective of 3 spatial dimensions.  Evolved human beings, or "Star People" whose origins are from a star or star system within or outside our Galaxy and human beings whom have applied themselves to spiritual studies, can gain awareness of the 4-D and 5-D worlds or perspectives.  If one had 4-D consciousness all the time, then you would be able to view 3-D objects from all sides (front, back, top & bottom) simultaneously.  Globally, all of Earth and its inhabitants is moving toward a shift into the 5th dimension which is transcendence over space-time.


Rays are various facets of the Absolute’s manifestation.  There are usually described 27 rays.  They are abstract cosmic principles or energies which radiate from the Divine (God) and are said to motivate manifested forms according to at least twenty seven principles.  As the rays move from number 1 (will) to the 27th, they change from encapsulating  primary or undiluted energies to incorporating compound energies.  The Rays activate the expression of their energies in each of the dimensions.  Each of us belongs fundamentally to just one ray, but we also possess minor qualities of other rays which help to form individual characters. As each ray is linked to a colour, a clairvoyant can analyse an individual's spirituality by studying the variety of rays shown in his aura.

The Higher Self relates to one of the rays.  Indigos were born on the second ray of Divine Love and Wisdom (Indigo or Blue) ray.   Their Higher Self is on the Indigo blue ray, with their consciousness firmly anchored in the 5th dimension.  They are called to tap into the 6th and 7th dimensions.  Crystals are born on the third ray (Gold ray) with their consciousness in the 6th dimension, and are called to tap into, and open up to the 7th, 8th, and 9th dimensions..  The Ray energy of your soul is the sum of the qualities only you know you possess. Your ray is your true spiritual motivation.

 The first 7 rays are solar rays manifested on Earth.  The 8th to 12 rays are the galactic rays resonating to the harmonics of 12. Our galaxy and universe resonate to the harmonics or frequencies of 12, while Earth resonates to the frequencies of 7.  See information on Sacred Geometry and numerology also. The influence of the 8th to 12 rays has lately manifested on Earth, while the higher rays to ray 27 and above are manifested outside of our solar system.  Some say that the rays above ray 12 have been anchored on Earth but not yet manifested.

For further information, see the following website:  Mystery School Lesson 20

The Seven Rays interact with a Human being through the medium of the seven major chakras which form links between each of man’s subtle energy bodies (auric bodies) that surround the visible dense physical body. Our major chakras are numerically related to both the Seven Rays and the Seven Planes.   The First Ray works with the Crown chakra to activate the Base chakra, and the other rays follow this same scheme, e.g. the Second Ray works with the Third eye chakra to activate the Sacral chakra.




Planes constitute the physical and the higher etheric levels of existence in our solar system.  The personality relates to one of the planes. There are 7 solar planes which may be considered seven rarefications of substance, graded impulses, or energy, differentiated by the sounding of a keynote and held stable by the continuing vibration of that sound's tonic chord.  The concept of an individualized personality is found in the lower three planes, the Physical, Astral and Manas (Mental) planes.  The Buddhic, Atmic, Monadic and Logoic Planes make up the other 4 of the 7 solar planes.  For more information about the planes, see the links below.  The individualised personality is rooted in the physical plane and can be also be experienced in the astral and mental planes, but usually not beyond those.

The Buddhic plane is the plane of true spiritual insight and intuition (not ordinary psychic feeling, which is astral) and the plane of all encompassing love and unity. The Akashic records which contain the history and sum total of the past of everything everywhere are ultimately on this level of unification.  Beyond any type of matter, dimension, or evolution as we can think of, the Monadic Plane is the plane of "will" where monads, the ultimate divine spiritual spark in all living things, express themselves and evolve and create on the lower planes.   A "Logos" can be thought of as a vast deity which has the ability to be a Creator, i.e. to create spiritual life from itself. The great beings who are main planets, stars, galaxies, and beyond are "on this level".

The planes work in a system and they inter-penetrate each other fully. They are not "parallel dimensions" or separate identities. They are not layered on top of each other but rather within each other, and not in the way that you would imagine an onion skin, but more along the lines of two exact things being in the same place at the same time. 

Note: the colours in the table are just for making it clearer to see each grouping and do not signify the colours of the Planes!

Some say each of the 7 solar planes has a cosmic equivalent and we have up to 144 soul extensions (12 soul extensions which each project up to 12 souls incarnated into etheric or physical form) which move through initiations through each of the 7 solar planes.  Furthermore, it is said that the 7 solar planes are actually sub-sets of a cosmic physical plane!   The cosmic astral and higher planes are purely abstract and not manifested.  The cosmic astral and higher cosmic planes of pure "thought" or consciousness are where the "planning" is done or where creation springs from.


The aura is an electrophotonic field that permeates in and around and through the physical body. The aura basically is the sum of what we are from the moment we came into this world, until the moment we leave it to go to the next. Experiences emotionally, physically and intellectually - everything that has ever happened to us is contained within the aura. There are seven inter-penetrating (inter-mingling) auric layers or bodies, which are penetrated by the chakras or energy centres.

Do not confuse ray energies with chakra or auric energies or colours, as rays are light beams of intense incoming energy, that  are available to be used, while auras and chakras are energy fields which are associated permanently with the human form.

See the website below for a picture of auras and chakras.




Chakras are energy centres or generators through which a physical body communicates with its aura and vice-versa.  A chakra is a wheel-like spinning vortex that interpenetrates the physical body, with the outer ends of each vortex forming a specific layer of the auric field.  The auric body or layer which each chakra opens into is shown in Table 2, for example, the Base chakra opens into the Etheric auric body/layer.  Chakras are a component of the aura and each chakra interpenetrates the other.  The Rays activate the Chakras as shown in Table 2. 

Chakras are the means through which a physical body communicates with its aura and vice-versa.  You are not a physical body with an aura surrounding you. Rather, your chakras, aura and physical body are one unit that together make up only a small portion of the greater you.  The greater you has also different levels of consciousness or access to many dimensions of consciousness.


The civilisations are seven cycles of materialisation and spiritualisation on Earth.  In the beginning of the Earth-Condition, the Earth and other planets condensed from an original purely spiritual state through the stages of "fire", "gas", liquid, and solid, finally culminating in the present Earth.  Each advancement of foundational root races was for the purpose of developing a major chakra (energy vortex or energy “generator”) in the species at large, with the end goal being a total of seven chakras activated on Earth.  The first and the seventh civilisations are the high endpoints in the total cycle, with Atlantis being the middle or low point. 


What about the Rest of the Dimensions?

The Kingdoms and Rays are numbered in Table 2 from 1 at the bottom to 7 at the top, while the Dimensional Awareness and the Planes are the opposite, i.e. numbered in Table 2 from 7 at the bottom to 1 at the top.  I believe that if we added the remaining 5 dimensions, 8 to 12 to Table 2, that they would be added to rows at the top of the Table and they would correspond to increasing purifications of the First Kingdom and the First Ray.   The numbering systems for the Dimensions, Chakras and Planes are rather arbitrary.  I think they could actually be re-numbered in the same sequence as the Kingdoms and Rays. I used the traditional numbering systems for the dimensions, chakras and planes in Table 2, and I believe such numbering is used to label the less refined qualities as number 1 with higher numbers indicating higher or more refined qualities.  Click here to see a visual representation.  In fact, the following website states that what is usually called the 12th dimension (see Table 1) is actually the 1st dimension because it appeared first.

Assistance with printing this information

You can print out Table 1 in "Portrait" orientation, i.e. on an A4 page as usually used, however, you will need to change your Printer Settings to "Landscape" orientation for printing Table 2 and the text after Table 2.   With the Windows operating system you can do this by clicking on File then on Page Set up and selecting the Landscape orientation before printing.  Make sure the Paper size is A4 under Page Set Up (File - Page Set Up).

Please use Print Preview to look at the pages and get the page number(s) for the Table which you want to print out.  Click on File then Print Preview and click on the Next Page arrow to go through the pages.  You can change the orientation of the print output from the Print Preview screen (for Windows OS) by clicking on the little pic right next to the button marked Print at the top left corner of the screen.  Hovering your mouse over said picture should show it is the Page Set-up button.  Choose Landscape for Table 2 then click OK, then click on the Print button and type in the page number you want to print.

I am sorry but some of the lines on both Tables do not show in Print Preview  - but do print out (hopefully).  This whole project has taken up quite alot of time and effort, and still I have not perfected the Tables, as I am very much an amateur web-creator and not a smartie, like some others, LOL.




To Sum Up

There are at least 27 dimensions and rays, and 7 solar planes.  Each plane in our solar system signifies higher levels of physical and etheric existence in our solar system.  The first Ray energises the 1st chakra to activate the 7th chakra, and so forth.  Chakras are components of the aura (electro-photo-magnetic field in seven layer or auric bodies surrounding a human), and the aura and chakras interpenetrate the other.  Each chakra feeds into one of the auric bodies. The civilisations are seven cycles of materialisation and spiritualisation on Earth, which activate the energies of the chakras.  

To perhaps further confuse things, some people say that there are FIVE kingdoms on Earth, i.e. mineral, plant, animal, human, and the New Kingdom, which is yet to come.  The said 5th Kingdom is the "kingdom" or world of multi-dimensional/enlightened human beings.  I think that what they are really referring to when they talk about Kingdoms in this manner, is the Dimensions.  Ascension is when all of Earth and its inhabitants will move into the 5th dimension.  See the following pages for links to information about ascension.
