For those who answered the call, this journey of The Levels of Clearance has already been happening for quite some time.
We have that moment where we begin to question the hollow nature of our reality, thinking, "There has to be more to life than this," (what we call Self Acceptance).
And from that time on, we enter a massive education process (Global Education, Impact Driven, and Etheric Education)—a journey of seeking.
But all of this is only culminating toward one single realization:
"My intuition is true and valid."
This is the huge spiritual milestone we call Direct Access.
Most people on The Cutting Edge, whether they answered that call to this expedited spiritual path or not, eventually find themselves here in Direct Access.
They understand that their intuition is something worth tuning into.
To them, their intuition is more than emotion, or a subconscious thought bubbling up to the surface. It's something more—something deeper, truer.
This, however, tends to be about as far as things go.
Here, The Cutting Edge gets stuck and lies dormant.
Oddly, for a lot of people, the sticking point here isn't anything wrong with their intuition or that they somehow have a faulty connection.
The real sticking point happened a step back, in that period of Etheric Education.
From what we can see, there's no place for The Cutting Edge to find a quality spiritual education.
That means a deep understanding of their body, their mind, their emotions, and the larger spirtual landscape simply never happens.
They may acknowledge that they have an odd ability to pull wisdom from thin air, and might think it's odd that all of their friends come to them seeking guidance, but there's no real place for them to slot those experiences.
They don't have a context, a map of understanding, that lets them fully understand that their intuition is something far more profound than they give themselves credit for.
Without that understanding, they find a way to get by, integrate into society, and do their best to suppress the knowing inside of them that they're not actually living the life that's meant for them.
This Etheric Education process is one of the first main roles of The Second Paradigm.
Over time, we've put together a map of reality that we've watched help, not just ourselves, but others along the way, to navigate their lives as intuitives.
In an ideal world, The Cutting Edge has a quality spiritual education to help them orient to their unique intuitive experiences.
In that world, Direct Access wouldn't just be a place to stop and lie dormant. It would be the beginning of a much larger journey.
From Direct Access, they'd organically start the next leg of that journey—learning to fine tune their intuitive access and validate it through lived experience.
But that's not the world we live in.
That "Etheric Education" doesn't exist.
As we see it, the intelligence of our life's work is The Second Paradigm—creating a place for The Cutting Edge to get a quality spiritual education.
The world we long for doesn't exist yet.
But, truthfully, that's not such a bad thing.
As much as we might have fought this idea over the years, it's simply ours to do.
In the rest of this section, we're going to run through some of the big points of that Etheric Education and lay the foundation for a rock-solid footing in Direct Access.
Hopefully, by the end of this section, you'll be able to understand what it really means to say:
"My intuition is true and valid."
