The Four Valleys and the Seven Valleys

Near the end of "The Seven Valleys", the Blessed Beauty refers to four stages of the heart:
But to this evanescent One of the mystic ocean, this station is the first gate of the heartís citadel, that is, manís first entrance to the city of the heart; and the heart is endowed with four stages, which would be recounted should a kindred soul be found.
I have also heard that acceptance and recognition of the Blessed Beauty may signify that the individual has already traversed the Seven Valleys.

I wonder, do the Four Valleys described in "The Four Valleys" correspond to the four stages of the heart mentioned in "The Seven Valleys"?
