Level 6 (of 7) : Relationships
The relationships stage of the Consciousness Line is the release from drama and the resolution of co-dependence.
Feeling never good enough is the norm for many people. This impacts how you see yourself in relationships with co-workers, a partner, family and friends. This maybe subtle, but it determines how much of yourself you allow yourself to be.
The journey to inner awareness through the Consciousness Line means honesty in relationships. That foundation comes from the relationship with yourself.
Releasing from drama (other people’s dramas) is a 4 step process:
(i) Relationships begin to change. There is a highlighting of any dysfunctional relationships. You become more outspoken and less afraid of being criticised for what’s important to you.
(ii) Relationships have an air of self-responsibility. You start to notice the how and why you’ve found yourself in uncomfortable relationship dynamics.
(iii) Resolution of the early life relationships in your psyche. Developing an awareness of the ‘inner child.’ The inner child is the part of your psyche that lives in the emotions of the past rather than those of the present. It bases your interaction with other people on your previous experiences. You have a strong desire to change this.
(iv) A healthy relationship with yourself develops and therefore transforms other relationships. New, healthy relationships come in, outdated situations that refuse to change start to leave your life. There is often a gap for you to deal with feelings of isolation. Often people will first stay around ‘something’ rather than risk being alone.
That ends the overview of Level 6: Relationships. Now what do you want to do? Do you want to move on or stay and go deeper into Level 6..?

Side note: In the book the ‘Levels’ are referred to as ‘Steps’, they both correspond to the same stage of the development of your intuitive abilities.
Chapter 12 Step 6: Courage – the Road to Self-Realization
‘It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.’
During the growth stages, the inner world of the Intuitive-Sensitive feels turned upside down, to the point where we become afraid of our own growth. We’re afraid of two energies: success and failure.
The thing an Intuitive-Sensitive wants most is a feeling of freedom, usually from the containment of their own fears. The issue is though, that they sometimes reject what it takes to make the last push to get there. To make the push for growth you have to enter ‘courage consciousness’. This is an essential part of the journey; if we try to bypass it, our development can only be limited. Courage is stepping into fear, looking it in the eye and smiling.
