“You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. Rod Serling
People are waking up. How many times have you heard this in 2018 year? Not only have I heard it, I have seen it! So many people who, just in 2017, arguing with me about the confines of their limited, dark, oppressive reality completely rejected that notion in 2018, and began to entertain the sorts of interesting and unique spiritual/scientific concepts that opened new worlds for them. I’ve been waking up…for many years now, since 1999. It’s been one heck of a journey. Along the way, I’ve encountered a lot of really wild, mind-bending, deep down the rabbit hole experiences that have assisted me on this journey. One of my most consistent go to resources, had been a text called A Course in Miracles (ACIM). You’ll notice I reference it a lot, as this text is the foundation of my Christ centered spiritual belief system. But…that’s just me, and the tool I use to navigate my personal awakening, which was a long time coming. I wrote an entire book about the experience, because I, like a lot of people, thrashed around for quite some time, in the dark, completely unaware consciousness, of how to access the spiritual side of myself. My book, The Way Through, Lessons Learned in Life, Love and the Journey, was my attempt to provide a spiritual roadmap, for others who felt lost in the way I was. Honestly, in promoting my book, I learned that there are actually a lot of people, spiritually lost and confused, in those darker, heavier emotions, just as I was, and for similar reasons. Trauma, primarily, is one of the reasons people are become so lost and stuck in these heavier emotions.
But that’s been changing! Where I once was used to dealing with those who were lost and really struggling to find their way, even with my assistance, I am instead seeing people, wake up and get it, after only a few conversations.
So what’s up? What is going on? It’s really exiting stuff to see! But what exactly is happening? It depends on who you ask, what particular source of knowledge they are relying on to describe the phenomenon and how skilled they happen to be at putting this phenomenon into useful words or concepts.
But, I think it’s safe to say that we are living through a time of extraordinary transition. I think that it’s difficult for most of us, living our ordinary lives, in very traditional ordinary human ways, to grasp the magnitude and the scope of this transition…but for starters, it is global. I think that we can all agree on that. The entire world is in a state of transition. And so, to this end, one of the most useful concepts I’ve come across that could possibly explain what is happening is this idea of planetary ascension.
Planetary ascension refers to the idea that the planet — this entire planet, referred to as earth or Gaia, that we humans reside on — is changing. There are those who believe that it is moving into another dimension. The planetary ascension theory provides that the earth, (an organic being in it’s own right) is having it’s own spiritual experience by which it is moving from a dense low vibrating, low frequency third dimensional reality into a lighter, higher vibrating, high frequency fifth dimensional reality.
That’s quite a concept! Quite a bit of information to wrap ones head around. It’s not just the people who are changing…but the entire earth! If you really take a minute to consider it, if you can accept the idea that all organic things have consciousness, at some level, then you may be able to entertain this concept.
The earth is undoubtedly this vast organic thing…primarily water, that has been mercilessly polluted by its human inhabitants which must seem (to the earth) like a really irritating and annoying species of mites or ticks, always digging and prodding and polluting, and interrupting harmonious natural cycles, that have been running for billions of years.
If the earth is a living, breathing organism (and honestly, if you really think about it, why wouldn’t it be?), it can’t be too happy about the way it has been exploited, mercilessly, by humans. And…if it decided it was going to move to another dimension, well there would be nothing that humans could do to stop it, now could it? And, if humans wanted to survive that ascension process, it would clearly be in their best interest to find a way to ascend with the earth, in other words, to evolve…spiritually.
So, that’s the theory. Whether you choose to entertain it, or not is entirely up to you. As for me? I’m not sure if that’s what is happening, right now, in this space or time. But, I have to admit, these are strange, strange days. So I entertain all sorts of ideas, even the ones that are almost beyond human understanding — and I think the earth having its own free will and consciousness, is one of those kinds of ideas.
But, for the sake of argument and expansion, let’s go with it. Let’s assume that it’s true. The earth is moving from the 3rd dimension to the 5th dimension, how does this play out? And what does it mean for the humans…and all other living things, that are on the planet?
Well…we have at least two choices…we can evolve with the planet, into it’s fifth dimensional state…or we can stay in 3D, if that is in option. Exactly how, people and the planet are going to move from one dimension to another- and more importantly when, is critical information that we’d all like to have. But when you start digging around in search of details for how the people and the planet are going to move into a higher dimension, or when , for that matter, the theories diverge into a lot of different parallels. A lot of different (and often scary) players get mentioned and some times there are references to wars: actual, spiritual and galactic ones. To be quite honest, going down all these different rabbit holes can get a little spooky. If you’re a newbie to these concepts, I recommend that you go slow. In order to get a really basic explanation of Ascension 101, I highly recommend, The Energetic Synthesis website.
New Age Writers, Higher Self and The Channelers
Where do these theories of planetary ascension even come from? I discovered them via, a variety of new age writers and theorists, many of whom happen to be channelers of non physical entities. Elkhart Tolle, is probably one of the more famous authors to speak to this concept. In his book, A New Earth, he introduces the idea of planetary ascension, in purely spiritual terms. There was also James Redfield’s, The Celestine Prophecy, which was a truly delightful allegory regarding planetary ascension. I have also stumbled upon a You Tube Channel, known as Higher Self. Higher Self is a collective of sorts that hosts a lot of far, far, far to the left, progressive spiritual ideas, that will often (I am not kidding) take you entirely off the planet, into other galaxies and star systems via channelers. I mentioned the channelers in my article, Exiting the Time Space Continuum. Higher Self is the only really centralized place, I’ve found, where you can access an abundance of channeled information. Many of these channelers claim to be channeling beings that I suppose we would refer to as beings from planets and star systems already inhabiting these higher dimensions, that our dear Gaia is in striving to reach.
And…if you have never encountered these ideas, I know it sounds absolutely nuts. We humans like to believe that we are the only thinking, speaking, feeling, sentient beings in our galaxy, because if there are aliens, surely we would have made contact with them by now…certainly, with all our grand technology. Right?
Except…perhaps maybe…space, the universe, all these galaxies…perhaps their expansion is not physical…perhaps traveling to meet and greet extra terrestrials is not a matter of physical space, but rather a matter of spiritual mind.
Remember what Rod Serling said? You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. Many of those among us, who identify as Star Seed, are claiming to have telepathic communications, as well as actual visitations, with benevolent extra terrestrials, who are assisting our planet with the ascension process…okay, that’s a bit much to take in on a basic introduction to the concept of ascension, so we will circle back to that at a later time.
The Dimensions Okay…so let’s move on to the dimensions. Let’s say, for the sake of argument, that there are different dimensions. Let’s accept what the channelers are telling us, and entertain the idea of a 3rd, 4th, 5th and even 6th dimension. Let’s assume that Gaia herself is on the way from the third to the fifth dimension. How is the planet going to make that trip? Most humans on this planet, occupy the third dimension. As a result, the earth itself, occupies the third dimension. But, if the planet itself decided that it wanted to occupy a higher dimension, what would it have to do to get there? Let’s go back to that deeply mysterious Nikola Tesla quote: “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
I suppose that the earth would change its vibration…the way it thinks, the way it feels, as thoughts and feelings emit a certain vibration. The earth actually does have a vibration…it’s called the schumann resonance. The schumann resonance refers to the frequency of the electromagnetic field of the earth (also colloquially referred to as the earth’s heartbeat). The past few years the schumann residence has been spiking. Those who believe in the planetary ascension theory, believe that these spikes in the resonance are a part of the earth’s ascension process. The above link is to an article that is explaining that phenomenon. I don’t know enough about science to know whether, the issue being raised regarding the resonance are valid or not; but I think that the fact that the resonance is typically around 7 hz, and has been spiking as high as 50 hz, is concerning, no matter what you believe! A change that drastic has to be effecting the planet in some way, right? Maybe what is going on with the resonance is affecting how we are experiencing time. In Exiting the Time Space Continuum, I noted that, everyone I know, and even national news anchors, are complaining about strange things going on with time. It seems to be speeding up. Time speeds up when objects move faster, and so…maybe the earth is moving faster……in short ascending. The planetary ascension theory claims that the earth is moving from the 3rd dimension to the 5th dimension. It’s difficult for me to conceive of what this exactly means for the earth. Elkhart Tolle predicted, in his book: A New Earth, that the vast spiritual awakening occurring among humans would be the impetus, for a new, more peaceful, more harmonious new earth. Therefore, maybe planetary ascension, is connected to personal ascension. The macro is connected to the micro. This seems like it would be especially true if, there really is no earth. Maybe, all there is, holding together space and time and the illusion of matter is consciousness.
Illusory Reality In Exiting the Time Space Continuum, I tried to explain how there is actually no such thing as time. I can barely get that concept to make any sense to me, much less anyone else out there grappling with it. But the illusory nature of time is a consistent concept presented in ACIM, and apparently, understanding the illusory nature of time is important to understanding these higher level spiritual principals contained in ACIM, so I persist in trying to grasp them.
One of the things that you need to accept, (if you are student of ACIM, consciousness, quantum physics and and entertaining the idea of different dimensions ) is that reality — is not actually real. And what I mean when I say real — I mean a sure, solid thing, fixed in a certain space…in a certain time. That’s just not so. As the physicists study matter…breaking matter down into it’s smallest pieces…what they find is that matter is mostly empty space. There’s nothing really there…which is a really weird concept, in and of itself…that there’s nothing really there.
All that ever gives matter the illusion of being there, is what scientists refer to as the “observer.” If the observer believes that a solid surface is where they are observing — the surface in fact becomes solid. The attention the observer gives to the illusory object, secures its solid state, that the observer can then interact with. But “reality” as we experience is all illusory. So what holds it together?
Well that is quite the philosophical question…I think, therefore I am. If you ask a quantum physicists, they can go into long explanations regarding why our human experience is an illusion that each mind is creating. What the Bleep Do We Know is a film that explains from a really dumbed down quantum physicists perspective, just why and how this is so. It is all very strange (that our reality is illusory) but based on sub-atomic studies, apparently, very, very true!
What seems to hold our illusory reality together in the way we experience it, are our thoughts, our emotions, our beliefs about it. And these may seem like fairly simple straightforward things, but they are not. These energetic structures, thoughts, emotions, beliefs and how they blend together to form entire belief systems have been perfected and honed over thousands and thousands of years. As a result, the various belief systems on the planet Gaia are fairly complex entities, in their own right. These belief systems completely define the confines of human life (and other life) as we know it. Into this reality, we are born and we live for a time ( a very short time) and then we die. But not without experiencing an astounding number of limitations in this experience, primarily the limitations created by time and space and matter, no matter how illusory!
But that is changing…and quickly. These belief systems are being tested, and they are not withstanding the tests…they are breaking down, almost all of them…belief systems that are, thousands and thousands of years old, just don’t have the same hold over the human mind that they once did. As a result, the nature of the illusory reality we all experience has been shifting, constantly, at least over the past 2000 years, but the past 200 has seen changes of an exponential nature. Too many changes, almost, for a limited mind to even conceive of, but, if you consider the way in which people were living, as little as 200 years ago, you’re talking about an entirely different reality, than most people are experiencing now. And these changes, a long with the speed at which they are happening, are transforming the nature of the illusory reality that has been agreed upon for at least the last 2000 years!
The reality of old cannot withstand, all of the extraordinary degree of change that has occurred during the past 200 years. Therefore, the reality we’ve known is shifting, fluctuating, breaking down…and, even the earth itself is being affected.
The 3D Reality So let’s refer to the current illusory reality as a 3D reality. What’s that like? Well, for the past 2000 or so years, it seems that we humans have occupied a dense, three dimensional reality where objects are held fixed in time and space. The earth, is one such object, fixed in space and time, with all sorts of animate and inanimate objects upon it, also fixed in space and time. We are able to manipulate these three dimensional objects utilizing energy and space and time. For quite some time, the earth has been a very solid, three-dimensional reality.
But there is a belief that our 3D reality (often referred to in new age spiritual circles as a grid) is “collapsing” or disintegrating. This collapse could explain the Mandela Effect, it would also explain the odd experiences with the space/time continuum. Time seems to be moving much faster now…and so, there has to be an impact on space as well. Time and space are in some kind of weird relationship, that also involves light. Einstein figured all that energy, equals mass times light. That whole equation was the beginning of reality bending onto itself, in ways most people don’t understand. As for the Mandela Effect, well that’s a really weird phenomenon, where things that clearly should be fixed in space and time, are no longer. Largely they are insignificant things, names of corporations, corporate logos, silly phrases in pop culture…”life is like a box a chocolates or life was like a box of chocolates” you tell me. Whichever it is, (some swear t was the former, others swear it was the latter) it’s a small thing. But some times these changes extend to more significant things: important historical events, and even large structures contained in various geographical locations. Google the mandela effect, and the Statue of Liberty…you will find some odd things occurring indeed, depending on which reality you seem to remember.
Generally, in our 3 dimensional reality, time and space and matter have a lot of rules. These rules are all about limitation. They are not about bending and manipulating the reality to one’s own will. In fact, in our 3 dimensional reality, we all understand that it is impossible, to one day walk down a well known street in Washington DC, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and find that the Statue of Liberty is there, occupying the space in front of the White House. Surely, we would have heard of such a drastic move of this huge landmark from one very specific place, to quite another. Even more disturbing yet, would be to be told that the Statue of Liberty has always been in front of the White House and it was never in New York. This is something that would cause most of us to question the very nature of our reality. And yet, these are the kinds of incidents popping up and being labeled as the Mandela effect. How to explain it? This is usually impossible in our typical 3D reality, because that reality has rules and limits. Huge national landmarks simply cannot move from one space in time and manifest out of thin air in another- they certainly cannot have always been there, because that breaks the rules of time in a way that most of us simply cannot conceive of.
But…certainly it could happen, if there were no such thing as time… In a 3D reality, which is best thought of as being dense and slow, nothing moves at the speed of thought, and it certainly cannot ignore the rules of space and time. You can’t simply think of something and bring it into a solid, dense physical existence immediately — without a time lag; and you certainly can’t claim the thing has always been there…when millions of souls insist that it has not…can you?
Those who believe in the power of manifestation, believe that the lag time in manifestation is a critical as the 3D reality is a training ground for the power of the mind. For, the mind is very powerful…it never loses it’s create force, but in order to have instant manifestation abilities, the human must learn how to responsibly control thoughts and emotions, so as not to be unnecessarily reckless in their manifestation abilities. I mean if people were capable of manifesting a machine gun, at the very moment they felt angry enough to kill, the object of their irritation, can you imagine the sort of violence and carnage, we’d have to live with, on the 3D plane? And it’s not like we don’t have our fair share of that to contend with already. There are rules here, I suspect the purpose of the 3D rules is to slow down destructive mentalities.
As it stands in the 3D realm, most minds operate in a semi-conscious, very low vibrational states; and the 3D manifestations that we do have, are evident of that. The limitation of the 3D paradigm leads to fear, lack and scarcity, programming and that creates all of the horrible (albeit illusory images) that we believe we our witnessing in our 3D world, things like: war, murder, terror, rape, pedophilia, greed, corruption. If I am to believe my ACIM lessons — I have to accept that none of it is real. Instead, these are horrible, nightmarish illusions that we have created on planet Gaia, (earth) which is operating like a huge human holodeck, based on our thoughts and emotions.
But this is a time of transition. Great awakening, even. And to that end, it is quite possible that the 3D laws of limit have been lifted! Time, space and matter are no longer limited in the ways that they have been. Our thoughts and emotions are no longer limited in the ways that they have been. So many humans are losing interest in the thoughts and emotions that lead to rules, and structures that are all about limitations. People are now using their thoughts, emotions quite differently. This is changing the way humans are perceiving reality, and perhaps that new perception even extends to the planet. And so many souls are moving out of the 3D matrix, via a number of various mechanisms. For me, the movement out of the 3D reality had occurred through my study of A Course in Miracles…but I believe there are a number of ways out. So many people are oscillating between 3D and 4D, that we’ve actually created a bridge. I’ve been on that 4D bridge..and I know what it’s like. But, I haven’t been able to stay there. What’s up with that? The Fourth Dimension is a Bridge
Have you ever met someone for whom things, just always seem to work out? No matter what happens to them in life, they bounce back! Almost immediately. They get fired from a great job…that’s fine. They get an even better one! This is a person who, (albeit accidentally) has figured out how to permanently reside in the 4th dimension. There are people who permanently reside in the Fourth Dimension among us. I have a good friend who is one of them. She grew up on a tiny Caribbean island, in abject poverty, but in her 20s, immigrated to the United States, where her life took a financial turn for the better. She’s well over 50, but looks and acts about 20. She technically has no formal career, but lives a very exciting life, traveling all over the world, usually in luxury accommodations. She does as she pleases, and is usually a very happy individual, within herself, as well as with almost everyone she encounters. This is someone who, as far as I can tell, has taken up permanent residence in the 4th dimension.
What is her secret? Honestly? It’s simply that she rarely permits a negative, unloving thought to enter her mind. Never. And that’s it. It’s not any more complicated than that. But…that is extremely complicated, really. Especially for those of us who have incorporated years, centuries, maybe even millennia of limited, lack and scarcity programming deep into our DNA. For many of us it is ingrained into the fabric of who we are. Changing this is as simple…but also as complex, as changing one’s mind. That’s what had been happening! All over the planet! At an alarming rate! The Fourth dimension is a state of mind. Either an extraordinarily peaceful or positive one. It is connected to the third dimension, it is almost right on top of the third dimension. It shares space and time with the third dimension…and yet, it’s almost an entirely different experience than the third dimension.
People who are involved in spiritual practices can experience this fourth dimension, intermittently. Seemingly it comes and goes. I’ve heard it described as a glimpse. Those involved in these spiritual experiences, can tell you about the glimpse where everything is going just right, in perfect harmony, where it is nearly impossible to feel ill at ease, within oneself…within the world. It is a glimpse into an entirely different dimension, where most humans, deeply attached to their lack and limited 3D programming cannot reside with any degree of permanency.
It’s really difficult for those of us who have had difficult life experiences to get to this state of mind, much less keep it. Staying in the fourth dimension is difficult because so much of our state of mind is shaped by the experiences that we have at a very young age, in the 3rd dimension, and these experiences were traumatic. So for those of us who have experienced trauma early in life, our ability to reach the fourth dimension is highly compromised. Trauma, especially early trauma in life, writes programs on the body and brain that essentially locks one into the 3D structures. The deeper the trauma, the tighter the lock. In my book, The Way Through, I explain how a severe trauma that hit me roughly through the ages of 10–13, kept me in a particularly corrupt sort of 3D programming for the next 20 years! 20 years I suffered from excruciating depression, because I suppressed that trauma.
It was only through my study of ACIM, that I was able to release and heal from that trauma. In order to do that, I had to do something that I once thought was impossible, forgive the person who had caused this deep trauma. That forgiveness would not have been possible without my study of ACIM.
So, I’ve written of my experiences with the 4th dimension. It took me years of spiritual study of A Course in Miracles, before I could successfully get the glimpse…but last year, in 2018, that 4D bridge blast an awesome path, right in front of me! I was able to stay on it, for larger amounts of time than ever before. It was an amazing experience.
But…at the same time, I had some really severe and hard drops back down into 3D…and these 3D experiences were pretty intense, even frightening. The 3D programming, is an energy that is getting quite desperate, by its imminent demise. So it’s working really hard to pull people off of that bridge, and pull them off of the 4D bridge, back on to the 3D reality. Will it work? Honestly? At this point, it’s entirely up to you. Spiritually, as a species, we are at a crossroads. We have to make a choice. As we move forward, energetically, if we want to say on that bridge, we have to make a choice, and the choice has to be love. It also has to be forgiveness, which, in other circles will be referred to as clearing. You have to clear out the old, dark, dense energies, and the programing (thoughts and feelings) that fuels those limited 3D experiences..
If you can do that…you will not only get to stay on the 4D bridge…you may actually get to cross it! So what is on the other side of that bridge? You guessed it! The Fifth Dimension.
The Fifth Dimension is Heaven on Earth What is the Fifth dimension like? I have no idea. I can’t say that I’ve ever experienced anything beyond the fourth, and quite honestly, the fourth dimension is enough of an elevation away from the third dimension to satisfy me.
But the Fifth dimension is said to be a state of heaven on earth, where everything you need, and everything you ever thought you could want, will manifest instantly. Can you imagine? Think of that often quoted bible verse, about all of the perfect treasures in your father’s (or mother’s) house, stored up just for you. Can you imagine it? Someone who knows you and loves you so deeply, that they can conjure up rooms and rooms full of perfect things, or better yet, perfect experiences that would allow you to enjoy life to your absolutely fullest! For you to be able to indulge in your very best, very creative pursuits, to be perfectly aligned with people who want to experience these pursuits with you? Can you begin to imagine a world like this? A world where no one is limited in anyway…and everyone is completely free to be their very best, physical, mental and spiritual self?
Can you imagine a world where people are interacting with one another, in such a way? A world where the fear, lack and scarcity programming does not exist. Can you imagine the kind of beauty this world would hold?
It’s really hard to imagine, because, residing in 3D, we are so far away from such a dimension, at this time. But doesn’t it sound lovely? Better yet, doesn’t it sound possible, if everyone residing in such a dimension were to come from a place of pure love?
Most of us don’t experience miracles in our every day reality, even though, according to ACIM, miracles arise from a miraculous state of mind, or a state of miracle readiness.
In order to reside in that Fifth dimension, a miraculous state of mind is needed, and that mind is one of pure love and unity-consciousness. These are the concepts to be tackled next!”
“You are what you feel, not what you think. Feelings come first. They produce thoughts. Feelings shape your whole being from within. Everything is feeling-based at its core. Feeling is sound/vibration-based. First, there was vibration in the form of audible or inaudible sound and only out of sound was light born. At the beginning, there was Logos: the word, the sound, the vibration. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (The Bible, John 1:1)”
