...which are the seven Spirits of God: Rev 4:5

Abraham Maslow developed a psychology to explain sane people. He recognized that basic behavioral motivations are tied to a hierarchy of Human Needs. St Paul seems to have been on the same basic wave length.



1Co 13... "the seven spirits of God"...

..."And he had in his right hand seven stars:"

Abraham Maslow's Seven Needs Identify the Seven Freudian Spirits:

1Co 1: Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels (in need for Status/Esteem), and have not (Altruism), charity, (I am not sane, really), I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

1Co 2: And though I have the (sociologically speaking, predictive) gift of prophecy, (needed to relate safely with my environment),...
 ... and understand all mysteries (as needed for Physiological daily living), and (satisfy) all (need for) knowledge;...
...and though, (in a need to Belong), I have all faith (in some common paradigm) so that I could remove mountains, and have not (Altruism), charity, (I am not sane, really), I am nothing.

1Co 3: And though (in need of Self-transcendence) I bestow all my goods to feed the poor,...

... and though I
(might even) give my body to be burned (because I need to Self-Actualize),...

... and have not (Altruism), charity, (I am not sane, really), it profiteth me nothing.

Revelation 1:16 refers to the announcement of this news, that the seven spirits are actually inside us. They are called archetypes. And this news is announced by a "coming," with the message on the right hand of Jesus. This reminds us that it was with this strange fanned out spread of his fingers that He has baptized people in 32AD.
It is a reference to the ancient use of the hand by the earliest Jewish priests, all sons of Aaron, called the kohans. This use of the hand is still seen today when the kohan performs a blessing in the synagogue now and again. Though it is merely a reminent of what it was once, originally, especially before the Torah had been written down and canonized in 900BC.

Need of Self-transcendence:
Transpersonal psychology is a school of psychology that studies the transcendent, or spiritual dimensions of humanity. Transpersonal psychology is concerned with the study of humanity's highest potential, and with the recognition, understanding, and realization of unitive, spiritual, and transcendent states of consciousness. Transpersonal theory gives weight to transpersonal or "transegoic" elements of human existence, such as religious conversion, altered states of consciousness and spirituality, in their academic reflection. Thus, transpersonal psychology strives to combine insights from modern psychology with insights from the world's contemplative traditions, both East and West. The transpersonal and spiritual dimensions of the psyche have traditionally not been a focus of interest for Western psychology, which has mainly focused on the prepersonal and personal aspects of the human psyche.
