Stages of Inner Vision in Meditation

 

By George A. Boyd ©2002

Inner seeing in meditation develops progressively as a byproduct of the operation of the coverings over the attentional principle. At first, you are aware only via the physical senses. Then you begin to see with your attention when you learn how to contemplate the content of your awareness with your eyes closed.

True metavision is the seeing faculty of the attentional principle when you first unite your attention with your attentional principle. As the attentional principle is projected from its ground state behind the pituitary center of the subconscious mind into the higher Planes, the faculties of its coverings begin to operate.

Between the ground state and the top of the Psychic Realm, the attentional principle operates in its astral covering. From the Wisdom Plane to the top of the Transplanetary Band, it operates through its causal covering. From the entrance to the Cosmic Sphere to the top of the Supracosmic Sphere, it operates through its mental covering. In the Transcendental Sphere, it operates from its essential form of consciousness.

These seven stages of inner seeing are detailed below:

Stage

Ability

One

Operation of visual senses through the brain to identify objects in the environment

Two

Ability to see content of the mind while concentrating attention with the eyes closed

Three

Ability to gaze using the attentional principle, activating the principle of metavision

Four

Ability to utilize the astral senses to view 1) the finer particles of matter, 2) the energies of the electromagnetic spectrum, 3) the auric and pranic fields of others, 4) distant locations in space (remote viewing), 5) dimensions of the physical universe and the astral world, 6) time-travel through the personal, embryonic, phylogenetic and reincarnational bands of the collective unconscious, and to 7) commune with the astral forms of other people, angels, spiritual guides and your own Transpersonal Self

Five

Ability to use the causal senses to view 1) thought forms, 2) colored energies of directed thought, 3) colors of the Seven Rays, 4) karmic impressions in the unconscious mind, 5) entities in the unconscious mind, 6) the attentional nexus of mind stuff and 7) the attentional principle of others

Six

Ability to use the higher mental senses to discern 1) the forms of inner vehicles, 2) the concentric spheres of consciousness that make up the Inner Planes, 3) the spiritual essence of others, 4) the Nadamic Path, 5) the awakened Path of the Soul, 6) the seed atoms and nuclei of identity at the core of each vehicle, and 7) the ensouling entity of the Subtle, Planetary, Transplanetary, Cosmic and Supracosmic bands of the Continuum

Seven

Ability to use the pure consciousness faculties of the form of consciousness (purusa) to detect 1) the ensouling entities of the Transcendental Sphere, 2) the 12 forms of the spirit and its paths, 3) vehicles of consciousness in each realm of consciousness, 4) the operation of intention, 5) the origin of ensouling entities, spirits and vehicles, 6) the guide forms of teachers in each band of the Great Continuum of Consciousness, and 7) the origin of mind stuff and consciousness (chetan)

You may wish to check to see which of these inner seeing faculties have awakened in you beyond the activity of your physical visual senses. As you are able to visit the higher Planes at will through your attentional principle, one by one these faculties of inner seeing will awaken in you.
