Developing 1 – Stages of Development

Human development is an innate process of evolution and growth which crosses all pathways: Ethereal, Mind, Body, Spirit, and Transition; and differentiates each of us uniquely from all other people.

Numerous scientific theories document associated age and cognitive capabilities, and phases correlated with needs, desires and goals. Stages of Development include qualitative changes in thinking, feeling, and behaving that characterize specific milestones.

Our abilities and experiences however, can motivate and require us to master specific levels of attainment sooner or later than the norm, and the degree of necessary dependence or independence to progress can vary greatly.

Following a progressive pattern of growth, the list below outlines our developmental processes as seedlings within our Soul Garden:

Emerging
Growing
Progressing
Standing/Self
Becoming
Maturing
Expanding
Enlightening
Transitioning

“One is nearer to God’s heart in the garden, than anywhere else on earth”
