Well, I’m into my 3rd module of Simone Matthew’s “Soul Evolution” home study course, and at last I am comfortable with my own personal theory / beliefs about “Dimensions” and the 13 levels. Here is my explanation, based upon one system or “school” of thought.
First of all, it may help to peruse THIS page here, about how consciousness, matter and form, arose from the Singularity. Just click OK if a box pops up asking for a Password. Also, if you look at my Post on “Sacred Geometry“, what I say in this Post will probably make more sense.
In the beginning was the POINT or the Singularity – and then the Axis or the Line – more Lines of Consciousness ( templates for matter form ) emanated to form an Octahedron of light / consciousness ( a shape with 8 regular faces or sides ).
This is the diamond shape or configuration of Light which our Soul ( operating through the Soul Star Chakra or the 10th Chakra / 10th Level of consciousness, and through the 5th Energetic Gateway ) use to project our individual consciousness through the vehicle of the Heart Chakra ( the 6th Chakra and the 4th Energetic Gateway ).
Our Diamond Light Field or our Crystalline Light Body is projected out on each of 7 levels, creating our 7 Chakra system. Chakras are Energy Centres which are designed to channel ( or funnel ) information and energies or frequencies of particular qualities into physical forms and creations from Source.
When we project the Octahedron, we create a “3rd level of consciousness” dimensional body, connecting us to the 2nd dimension of plants and other animals, and connecting us to the crystalline field of the Earth, the 1st dimension of consciousness – via the Earth Gateway, the 1st Chakra – the core of the Earth.
From the core of our octahedral body or field of light, we also emanate or project a system of subtle energy bodies or layers ( electromagnetic fields / layers ) collectively called the AURA ( and individually called the Auric Bodies or Auric Layers ). There are 7 Auric layers / layers of the Aura / Auric Bodies related to, or associated with the 7 primary Chakras of human beings.
All in all, we human beings are HOLOGRAMS ( i.e projections of Light ) and FRACTALS ( complete whole systems within the same but larger systems on an infinite scale ).
