Spirituality: The five openings of consciousness, a tool for understanding oneself

In these unusual times when division seems relatively present, I wanted to write on a subject that is little treated in society: our inner nature. In fact, to get along, you have to be able to understand yourself, and to understand yourself, it can be useful to get to know others better, how they work and their perceptions. Here it will be a question ofexploration of personalities on the basis of a spiritual analysis. The content of this article is taken from a video by Christine André, spiritualist medium – author and lecturer. This means that this information cannot be sourced, except by the resonance it will have with you. You are the sole judge.

Frame of reference and preliminary postulates: mediumship and reincarnation

Christine André is a medium, that is to say she has the ability to connect to other unseen worlds and receive messages. In her vocabulary, she makes use of terms like the “beyond” [l’autre côté où se retrouvent les âmes après la mort]the guides” [êtres non visibles qui vous accompagnent dans vos vie(s)] or even words relating to the reincarnation, basic postulate to understand this typology. Any incarnation would be willed and chosen by the soul. And yes, you have chosen to experience life in 2022…! Anyway, you are all very brave!

Opening of conscience: quesako?

Christine André explains that there is five types of awareness on the ground. Each opening corresponds to a type of experience that the soul will have chosen to experience. From there, there is a certain determinism in our lives because the soul chooses everything before incarnating (his parents, spouses, friends, life experiences and even his death). We will speak of more or less young souls in relation to the number of past lives on Earth. She recalls that this typology is Earth-specific. Once back in the afterlife, we are all souls with the same essence. Thereby, planet earth is a kind of schoolas often noted Dolores Cannon, a hypnotherapist specializing in past life regressions. In this way, the openings of consciousness of the souls are comparable to school levels. However, Christine André warns that one should not be proud of being in high school rather than in college or kindergarten, we all pass the different levels at one time or another. Comparisons are irrelevant.

It should be noted that we encounter the five types of openings in our lives. You may recognize some of the people around you by the characteristics of each level. Maybe you will understand them better!

The five openings of consciousness or the five types of soul

Primary souls: “the first steps”

These are the first incarnations on Earth. They are capital. In these lives we don’t choose our parents. They will be chosen by our guide. Often these will be other primary souls with a few incarnations so that we are not too out of step with our parents. The primary cycle is the only is that is limited and boils down to five lives. The others are all unlimited insofar as they end when the lessons are acquired. These early lives are not steeped in spirituality. It’s not on the program. We discover life in matter.

Features :

  • work on instinct
  • impulsiveness
  • tendency to easily follow others because inexperienced
  • speak and act without thinking
  • materialists

Young souls: “help, please”

These souls already have a little acquired. They will have a different way of living than the primary souls. They have chose their parents compared to the first primary lives and what needs to be corrected. They are beings who don’t know how to fend for themselves. In the last life of a young soul, there will be a click to take charge.

Features :

  • dependent on others: not autonomous
  • no desire to work
  • looking for ease
  • do not manage their life
  • victimize themselves
  • no attraction for the spiritual
  • materialists

Adult souls: “me, I”

These souls assume and manage themselves. They chose their parents. They are usually very materialistic and run after money. This type of souls are those that are present in greater numbers today on Earth. They are in the appearance, manipulation and power over the other. The soul must understand that ego tendencies are not a source of fulfillment. In other words, the exit of the ego signals the end of this cycle.

Features :

  • independent
  • quest for power
  • very materialistic
  • great thirst for money
  • a very present ego
  • seek to crush others
  • refute all spirituality
  • can’t stand high souls or old souls

Elevated Souls: From “I” to “We”

These souls have many experiences and begin to wonder about the afterlife and the immortality of the soul. They know they have to improve and learn. They are aware of the invisible and are interested in it. Spirituality will be present and they will look for people open to these questions to help them on their way. It is a cycle with an unlimited number of lives, according to the advancement of the being. The last life of this cycle, will see the birth of a desire to share and organize this knowledge to pass it on and to serve.


  • thirst for knowledge
  • do a lot of diverse and varied training; can get lost
  • help in associations without having a role with responsibilities
  • attentive and willing to help

The old souls : “at the service of Us”

These souls are those who have the most experiences on Earth. They must avoid what Christine André calls three “i”s: intransigence, impatience, intolerance. They are souls who asked and committed to serving others. The three “i’s” generally surface in contact with the other types of openings of consciousness. For these souls, everything is obvious and they don’t always understand why other people take so long to figure things out in life. The guides will be very hard on these souls because they are supposed to know. There are unlimited lifetimes in this cycle until all the lessons are integrated.

  • feeling out of place
  • problem with the time, not very punctual (no time in the afterlife)
  • fragile energy balance (can go from euphoria to depression very quickly)
  • difficult life trials
  • highly developed intuition
  • the mission of life develops outside the family sphere

So where are you? Do you recognize yourself or members of your entourage?
