Recently someone asked me, “Why can’t we see the higher dimensions, but we can see the lower dimensions?”
I can only answer this from a spiritual perspective. At the moment, the teaching field of this Earth school is taking place primarily in the third dimension, so the vision of what our physical eyes can see is limited. Seeing the higher dimensions beyond this requires a different kind of vision than just our physical, third-dimensional eyes. Some of us can easily see the higher dimensions, while in this 3-D body because we have evolved our consciousness into the higher dimensions. The higher dimensions are more subtle and can often be overlooked and not seen at all by those who have yet to develop or have their third eye or 6th chakra completely open.
The 6th chakra is tied to the 6th dimension. The Earth consists of 13 dimensions. For us to see beyond what the physical, third-dimensional eyes can see, we need to see with the eyes of our spirit and soul or higher self. We need to use our connection to our higher self, residing in the higher dimensions to see. We naturally expand our vision by developing a conscious relationship with who we are in the higher dimensions. As beings, we will only ever able to see up to the level where our higher self resides.
Once we begin to awaken beyond the third-dimension, the part of us who has incarnated into the physical plane can be used to push the boundaries to help our higher self expand beyond their current dimensional awareness. This is why incarnation into the human body is so valuable. To have a human, with this potential, is powerful because we become our own pioneer and tool for new growth, and expansion to happen in the higher dimensions. This kind of growth is a push-pull event, whereby all the selves (soul, higher self and physical self), work as a team to grow our being.
Recently someone asked me: “Why do I feel so alone while on the spiritual path?” Below is my response.
We walk this life and the spiritual path alone, and yes, it can be lonely at times. The more we have consciously awakened, the less isolated we tend to feel because of the inner growth which has taken place. When we connect and integrate more with our higher self, the gaps of loneliness we feel are filled up with awakened consciousness and the understanding of Self. We no longer feel the separation of Self so strongly. Our higher self (the spirit self) spends eternity growing and evolving to become lighter within the spectrum of our creation.
Yes, the loneliness can considerably lessen, the more conscious we become. However, from my perspective, while we are embodied, no matter how enlightened we become, it is only natural to feel a bit of loneliness at times. It is a misconception to think that all loneliness simply disappears with enlightenment. If one is in any kind of form, spirit, human or whatever, there will always be a slight kind of loneliness because this is the nature of having a form, and it is inherent in all matter. The spirit self or form will always yearn for higher degrees of light energy and to keep evolving. This yearning is a type of loneliness that pushes our being forward to forever becoming more conscious.
Again, from my perspective, it is not possible no matter how enlightened, while in a form, for this aspect to be gone entirely. While in a form, and if we are enlightened, we exist as a conscious paradox. When consciousness realizes itself, it becomes eternal. Conscious beings do not need to dissolve back into the One because their consciousness has become One. They are a paradox. They will forever be in Oneness thou striving for greater Oneness while in form. We all exist as both spirit (form) soul (energy), and both need to be understood and acknowledged.
I was recently asked this question: “Is it more often than not struggle and strife which makes people spiritual?”
Pain is a great motivator, and yes, because of this growth is painful. We are naturally spiritual beings. Earth is a school for beings to learn and grow and evolve. Part of the curriculum of the school is for us to grow through tough lessons, aided by a system that some call karma.
Karma is a learning system whereby we are held accountable for all our actions. Our spirit self needs to heal the parts of ourself, which are damaged and to balance our self with all other energies.
The more evolved we become, the more aware we are of our spiritual nature. And the more evolved we become, growing can become less painful. When our spirit or higher self has learned what we came here to learn, we can move on from incarnating into the third dimension and graduate from this Earth school.
The semester of our current classroom is coming to an end soon. This is why the lessons have become more intense. A new, bright, and shiny semester will start soon, and all will be right with the world for a time. Some religions call this period on Earth “the Golden Age” or “Heaven on Earth” or “Age of Aquarius”. The peaceful time on Earth will last for a few thousand years, and then the regular teachings of struggle and strife will return on the teaching field.
We can mitigate the pain of growth by learning to let go and go with the flow of our life rather than resist what is happening. When we remember life in these human bodies is a school, and we are the representative for the real student who is our higher self, life seems to be less painful as we grow.
Recently I was asked if I was ever contemplating doing or not doing something and I got a “sign from God” to do it or not do it?
Getting a message from “so-called-God” is my normal everyday life. I only do what my higher self desires or guides me to do. Some may find this incomprehensible, but at this stage on my spiritual path, this is how I live my life. From my perspective, my higher self is my God. It is my God-Self. My higher self is my spirit self and is who I am on the other side of the veil, in the higher dimensions. It is my divine expression of the All, and along with my soul, it is my connection to the All.
I know I have shared this message often in my posts, this is because being conscious of this connection is so vital to our growth at a certain level. Many teachers speak about spirit guides or about us being One, but few talk about the higher dimensions. They might not know who they are in the higher dimensions or that they exist as a being on the other side of the veil. They might not have a full understanding of Earth being a school.
I recommend for all of us to examine our desires and the deeper motivation behind them. If we are not being guided to do something, why do it? This calls for us to explore what the purpose of this life, and who we are? My path has become one of learning about my higher self and to do what my higher self desires of me at all times. Over the years, I have honed my skills and my listening and feeling so that the communication between us is active and available 24/7. It has taken a lot of effort for me to get here, but the reward of living such a life is very high, peaceful and gratifying.
Just as humans trace their DNA roots, knowing about ourself (our God -Self) in the higher dimensions and being consciously connected, is the beginning of knowing more about our soul’s roots. I wish this awareness and knowledge for all beings.
I was recently asked, “how do we guard against self-deception while on our spiritual path?”
This is an excellent question for those of us who sincerely want to evolve in the higher dimensions and want to support our growth process and not just grow when we are challenged and forced into it.
If we stay honest with ourself and are always hungry to know more than we do, because we value our own growth over that of our ego’s opinion and how we look to others, we will do okay. We must stay open and be willing to question our own and other people’s ideas and concepts and perceptions of reality. Question everything over and over again and be prepared to trade up when we find new concepts or perceptions which seem more evolved than the thoughts we hold or have been working with.
Truth cannot be written in stone. It is valuable for us to know that all states of enlightenment are relative. The journey in consciousness awakening to itself is never-ending. Hopefully, we will outgrow our beliefs and understandings many times over during the course of our lifetime.
Recently someone asked me, “what is the most important thing you do in your spiritual practice and why?”
Each person has obviously a very unique way they maneuver on the road to growth. I have stayed inquisitive about existence and question the why of everything. The constant questioning has led me to unravel many of the mysteries of who am I and why am I here and what is this Earth thing? Even tho I no longer have deep desires to know many things, because these questions have been answered, I continue to ponder in my way further out into realms where my human brain has trouble holding on.
The inner pondering, or internal research as I call it, has broadened my perspective tenfold. In the past, the answers out there to life’s riddles from others seemed full of holes and misnomers, and so I worked at solving these riddles for myself, with the help of my higher self. Don’t listen to other’s who tell you it is impossible to know such things and maybe for them it is. If there are questions to something which pull at you for answers, keep at it until that answer is fulfilled and you feel satiated and at peace.
I have written other articles on ways to communicate with one’s higher self, so I won’t go into this at this time. I will say, the relationship with our higher self and to be able to open up the connection and practice communication with Self, is vital for our growth. I urge all to nurture this relationship so you can make the most of it in this life as it will significantly enhance and speed up one’s spiritual growth. Whatever baby steps, we can take in this direction is worth our efforts.
Would you like to know why I picked this May photo of the lilacs, for this August post? Because this is the image, my higher self told me she wanted to use today. This is the only reason! I practice being at her command at all times. Compared to the whole of existence, my human self is like that little drop of water on the flower in the photo. And the only desire this drop has is to merge itself with the whole of who I am. May Oneness be yours today.
Recently someone asked me, “What happens spiritually when you go against your heart and deny yourself what you truly want in life?”
This is not an easy question to answer because some people think their ego desires are their hearts desires. Not everyone is aligned with the desire of their higher self. We have a lot of narcissists in our society who are cut off from their intuition and the guidance of their higher self. People are often uncertain as to what and who they follow for their guidance. This is because they lack the full understanding of their higher self and why they should choose their higher selves desires over the desires of their ego. And perhaps they don’t have the will power to align with their higher self, and in the case of narcissists, they will not have the ability.
There are only these two choices for guidance. We are either following the choice of our ego or our higher self and yes, sometimes both of these will make the same choice, which of course makes the decision easier. How can we tell the difference in our choices? If it is an important choice, we should give our self some time, if possible, to be sure of the decision. I practice feeling and hearing the answer, and then I shut off my intellect and use a pendulum to confirm the answer with my higher self. I will also ask the question in different ways to make sure of the answer I am getting. Once I feel I have the correct answer, I will follow it. This is the method I have been using for years.
We can also practice trying on the different choices and paying attention to what the alternative feels like. Some people work with the tarot cards for confirmations or the I-Ching. When we get to a stage on our path, where we recognize it is essential always to follow our higher self, this is what we do. If we do something else other than this, for whatever reason, we will be haunted by the choice and never feel good about the decision we made and not following our spirit.
All the choices we make are to teach us to learn to follow our spirit in all things… following our spirit becomes our heart’s desire and what we want above all else. I hope this answers your question.
