Sixth Promotes Seventh Tribulation
Once the nascent soul (元婴; yuán yīng) opened its eyes for the first time, it mark the moment for the cultivator to step into the Seventh Stage Spirit Venerable Realm officially. The nascent soul will direct the Sixth Promotes Seventh Heavenly Tribulation. After the cultivator successfully transcended the tribulation, the nascent soul will close its eyes, saving its strength silently.
Great Sun True Fire Tribulation (大日真火劫; dà rì zhēn huǒ jié) was the strongest Heavenly Tribulation attack that can arrive at the present world. Any stronger, the attack and the tribulation transcender will be shifted to the Eighth Stage Heavenly Tribulation World or its equivalent.

Special Ability: True Illusion
Upon reaching the rank of Seventh Stage Spirit Venerable, whenever the cultivator was deep in meditation, just a thought alone could stir the spiritual energy within his body, creating a huge impact on the real world, creating a ‘True Illusion’ that was connected to the real world, but was at the same time detached from it.
True Illusion was similar to an illusion, but a notch more complicated. It was still fake though, since it did not exist in the real world as an actual entity. However, its existence was very real… in the sense that one could reach out their hands to touch all of the things within the True Illusion. They would not feel or seem different from real ordinary items.
- Seventh Stage Spirit Venerable was the fifth cultivation level mentioned in the novel.
- Song Shuhang was the youngest individual to become a Seventh Stage Spirit Venerable in the history of All Heavens and Myriad Realms and Nine Serenities World, at the tender age of 18 years old.
- Song Shuhang also didn’t follow the standard path of a Seventh Stage practitioner. He basically skipped all the minor realms of the Seventh Stage.
