The Nine Stages of Spiritual Transformation: Stage Two

Learning to find, relax into, and share your home frequency is the key to transforming your life and entering the Intuition Age.

Penney Peirce


Welcome back to My Current Read where I discuss the latest book I am reading.  In the last post, I began to discuss Penney Peirces’ nine stages of spiritual transformation described in her book frequency: The Power of Personal Vibration.

Before we continue, it is important to note that the stages tend to overlap and one can go back and forth between stages.  As a clinician and a person who has been working on her own recovery, I have witnessed this to be true of the healing process.  The process

can be compared to pealing an onion, in which each level of the onion is equivalent to going deeper into one’s issues until the core is reached.

For instance, say you have a habit of having indiscriminate sexual relations with others.  The surface issue may be about fear of getting hurt again because the one you loved left you.  But going deeper into the process, you realize that there is an older wound.  This wound is related to your mother dying when you were still in elementary school.  From this experience, your child mind developed the belief that it’s not safe to get too close to people because they will abandon you and the pain is too much to handle.

Throughout your healing and growth process, you will progress and then sometimes you will revert to old habits temporarily.  Reverting back to the old habit does not indicate that you have not healed, but more likely that you are moving into the next level of healing and are feeling fearful or confused by the unknown.  If you continue in your process, you will find greater healing and continued progress.  This is true whatever process you endeavor, not just therapy.

So, continuing onto the next stage, Peirce describes the second phase as the “frequency of life increasing in every way, everywhere”.  She explains that as higher frequencies of energy  permeate the world, the vibrations also saturate our mind and emotions.  The process can be disturbing as the new, more refined vibrations trigger positive and negative emotions.  As I mentioned above, you may experience this confusion by temporarily reverting to old habits or methods of coping.

Peirce states that one may experience “short attention span, short-term memory loss, lack of motivation, or disorientation.”  You may also feel exhaustion, sick, “achey”, hyper, irritable or tense.  She associates physical disorders such as cancer, fever, allergies and ADHD as possible pathways in which the body attempts to adapt to the higher frequencies and release the “crap” (my descriptor of the baggage we carry) of the past.

I compare this process to cleaning out the messy closet.  The chaos gets worse at first as we pull everything out to determine what stays and what goes.  Slowly we put everything into their piles:  stays, goes, or yet to be determined.  This can feel overwhelming at times, especially as we deal with the yet to be determined pile.  But, once we get through everything, we now have a more functional and organized closet.

As we clear the closets of our heart and mind, we heal and adapt to the higher frequencies.  Peirce says this can result in experiencing greater vitality, endurance and awareness, as well as  feelings of love, generosity, happiness, enthusiasm, inspiration, and forgiveness.

In my experience, the change can be sudden one time and build slowly the next. You can feel like you are starting over repeatedly, but in reality you are always building on the previous growth attained.  Again, there is no right or wrong way to experience this process as every occurrence is unique.

Please share your story, if you identify with this stage.

Meanwhile, stay tuned as we continue to explore Peirce’s nine stages of the process of personal transformation.
