Ascension and The Dimensions

As we ascend as a planet and humanity into the higher dimensions of consciousness it is good to understand the components of these different dimensions.

The fourth dimension fosters the futuristic realization that no one is greater or more important than anyone else. This is the beginning of our understanding of oneness. The oneness stops being a thought or a concept but a reality felt inside and incorporated into feelings, mental thought and belief. How we understand time in this dimension determines how we can manifest and gain access to the deeper meanings and richer benefits of this often-unrealized world. Manifestation has been a hot topic for a couple of decades. Movies, books, workshops and classes have been taught on how to manifest and gain desired objects, but many people feel discouraged with the length of time it takes to manifest their desires.

The spirits told me years ago, back in the early 90's, that time acts as a buffer in third dimension reality. It actually saves people from self-destructing or damaging others. If people actually manifested everything they thought about instantly, we would have bedlam on earth because of the undisciplined minds of most. However, the fourth dimension creates conditions for time that are substantially different from our ordinary reality. Like a dream, fourth dimensional thought and feelings create reality almost immediately but absent the confusion and destructiveness that might be present in our daily life. However, the residues of our third-dimension life often remain in the fourth dimension in the form of fears and doubts that inhibit the full realization that we seek. The progress to the fifth dimensional reality will lead to the falling away of these fears and a more perfect union with the cosmos.

In the fifth dimension there is no illusory limitation and anything is possible. The manifestation of our deepest desires occurs instantly with joy and love where we have dismissed ourselves from artificial constraints of time and limitation. The right brain achieves full dominance in the fifth dimension and we are free and full of love. We are liberated and not restricted to scarcity paradigms that contribute to lower frequency actions. In this dimension we live in the realm of the unconditional-unconditional love, unconditional possibility, unconditional oneness with the universe. There is complete freedom from judgment; in fact, judgment isn't even conceivable. We live in harmony and are free to express our true selves. Our true essence is at the helm of our thoughts, actions and feelings. We can see and communicate with the non-physical beings that surround us and interact in our lives-power animals, ascended masters and teachers, angels, faeries, and other stellar beings. There is no fear in this plane.

Many of us who practice metaphysics know of these states of being. We experience them regularly. However, existing in these elevated dimensions is usually not "full time." Often even explaining our "mystical" experiences forces us into the left-brain structures and limited vocabulary, especially in English, which is predominantly a militant language and has few words powerful enough to hold the energy of the mystical experience.

As we strive for ascension and seek to change our vibrations into higher qualities of purity, we must attend vigorously to creating the conditions of receptiveness by staying focused in our right brain. If we do so, we are constantly reinforced and supported with spiritual interaction and magic and are able to better comprehend our amazing existence.

Our challenge is the same as it has always been-to not judge ourselves and to not judge the extraordinary experiences we have while journeying or in meditation. Without judgment, we can connect to the feelings of appreciation that can cause elation. When we have these experiences and then try to express them through the filters and structure of left-brain rigidity and judgment, we fail to fully appreciate our experiences. The left brain cannot comprehend these experiences and it is not supposed to. That is not its function. Ascension is a process that involves many factors. Stimulating and consciously activating the right brain is necessary to the process. We must trigger the right brain to counterbalance the lifetime of conditioning of the left brain.

There are many activities that you can engage in for this process. Journeywork, interacting with non-physical spirit beings, meditation, reacting to art and music, and daydreaming contribute to the continual reconditioning of the mind. I simply like to breathe with the intention of flooding my right brain with oxygen and energy, especially during my quiet times of the day. I envision my right brain "turning on," "lighting up," and taking a prominent position in my daily functions. It is amazing the feelings that rush through with this activity. Love, appreciation, and expansion flood my body and my fields of energy. It is a simple and worthy exercise to do throughout the day. The right brain is the source of imagination and you will discover that it is receptive to creative and simulative exercises. We may have been born into a third-dimension reality of limitation and scarcity but it need not remain our imprisonment for life. The choice to break free from these artificial restraints is ours.
