༻❁༺ This page is dedicated to pieces I have written around certain themes I believe to be very important in all of our lives, through embodying these truths we grow&flourish into the truest most authentic versions of ourselves, the beings of Love and Light we have always been༻❁༺
“We are stars wrapped in skin, the light you are seeking has always been within” ~unknown~
As the masters and creators of everything in our reality we are also entirely responsible for ALL that we chose to experience in our lives. This realization can feel both intensely liberating and totally burdensome. In reality it is the most beautifully freeing truth we can ever come to acknowledge.
In the world we live in today, many of us have a tendency to victimize ourselves; to act as if the world or the people around us owe us something. It’s as if we seem to excuse our current behavior with our past. We use the excuse of how people have treated us in the past, in order to justify who we have chosen to become now, believing that their actions were done TO us.
The majority of us who live in the western world today have everything we could ever possibly need or even want within an arm’s reach. Everything in our society is set up to maximize convenience and comfort, with the technological evolution of products constantly being focussed on the newest gadgets that make life easier for us, a reality that is worrying in many senses. Essentially, the advancements of society seem to be conditioning us to become less self reliant, more lazy and ultimately less responsible for our own lives. We need to be asking ourselves, do we truly want to minimize the amount of responsibility we take for who we have become and what we have created? Or whether ultimately, what we really want is to lose complete control of our own lives.
I believe that the manifestation of this social direction creates a lack of appreciation for what we do have and instead seems to focus our minds on what we don’t have. Ultimately most of us have so little to worry about in our daily lives that we start to develop a mental tendency to create our own problems, issues that are in reality non existent.Through this mind state many of us come to believe we are victims of other people’s actions and of our own lives, when in fact those of us who have been born into loving families, who have a home, nourishment and warmth in our hearts, are already so much more fortunate than we can ever come to give gratitude for.
However, as we sink into this mind state of little gratitude we begin to feel like we are a total victim. We begin to believe that those around us or the universe itself owes us something. This is then in turn used as an excuse to lash out, to act obliviously and destructively. For when you are unaware of your self created issues, it’s always everybody else’s fault, but never yours.
Because of what you think someone did to you, you believe that you deserve to get away with such actions, you use the justification of what has happened to you in the past to try to explain to yourself why you keep choosing to act in such self destructive ways. Your past justifies your present, which then becomes a repetition of the past, a cycle of self destruction that is never ending. It is a cracked record that you will continue to play, a sound that nobody else can hear, for ultimately it can only hurt you.
Once you realize that other people’s actions are not done to you but to themselves, that their actions are simply a reflection of whatever they are experiencing, you stop putting so much weight on how other people talk to you, act towards you, or treat you. One then has the ability to not take everything so personally, because you realize that everything in your life does not happen TO you but FOR your growth.
Many people have a tendency to project, to relay their own issues onto those around them, as it is always easier to take things out on others than to deal with the real roots of your pain; for they hide deep within you.
It is essential to realize that the projection of other people’s issues has nothing to do with you, it simply means that you are mirroring back something which clearly triggers them, as they are not ready to face that part of themselves yet they project it onto you. You are completely whole without the approval or specific treatment of those around you , you are a being of infinite Light and Unconditional Love, everything that you have ever needed is within you.
When others treat you badly they are simply treating themselves in such a way, as sooner or later it will come back round to them. If this treatment continues to affect you, all you have to do is remove yourself from such energies until they have chosen to begin healing themselves.
In reality, we hold direct responsibility for everything we have chosen to experience in this life, always experiencing what we need to in order to gain wisdom. In turn, we spread these empirical truths with those who choose to share our journeys with us. Actions exist objectively, they happen as they are meant to. It is the perception of the action that determines whether we decide to internalize or not. We do not have to allow other people’s behavior or opinions to affect us personally, it is our choice to believe that their actions or words were aimed at us.
You can never blame or hold another to the pathways they have chosen to take, or the decisions they choose to make. Whether we make choices from a place of conscious awareness or from total obliviousness, it all ultimately comes from what we believe to be best for ourselves. Although not everyone’s path resonates with your truth, you must allow others to make their own decisions and have their own experiences, trusting that they need to in order to grow into who they will become. We all see things very differently, therefore we must always respect and honor the journeys of those around us. We are not them, we will never fully understand why they do what they do.
In my mind there there is no such thing as mistake, it is always a choice. Our choices simply determine when and in which area of life we grow. Each decision holds the same potential for further awareness of self, we only need to open our eyes. For it is in fact our greatest “mistakes” that teaches us our biggest lessons.
Through the embodiment of complete responsibility you no longer feel hurt or upset by other people’s behavior. You may still experience these emotions, but you know that what you feel in moments is not what you ultimately believe. Instead, you are now able to hold space for those who are fighting internal battles, as you possess complete compassion for all that their journey is, holding within you a deep understanding that they must make their own “mistakes”. As the true embodiment of the incredible master and creator that you are, you will always love unconditionally without expectation of reward or reciprocation.
The laws of the universe are such that the more you come to embody a reckless version of self, the more you pretend not to care about anybody, the more you run from yourself and the responsibility of your own life, the more you will continue to attract to yourself the situations that you believe you are such a victim of. The answer is simple, like everything in life, it is a choice. Wake up one day and stop choosing to repeat the negative cycles, the destructive behaviors, and create change for yourself, for until you yourself decide to end this loop it will not cease to repeat, as you and only you have the power to change yourself.
The moment you begin to act differently, the minute you begin to live by who you want to be rather than the victim who continues to attract what they do not want into their life, everything will change. Until you make this choice your are essentially expecting everything around you to change without you having to do anything, does this sound like a realistic expectation?
You are a conscious being with the free will to do as you choose, you exercise this freedom in other areas of your life so why not now? You are the master and creator of your reality, you have chosen everything that you are experience in your life for some reason or another, therefore accept this fact, accept everything that you have done. The things you are proud of and also those you are not proud of; accept that it was ALL part of your journey, they were ALL lessons you needed to learn.
Realize that those who love you unconditionally will never hold you to your past actions or behaviors, they will respect and honor the fact that you are owning your journey, for only a coward runs from facing himself. True respect is felt for those who no matter what always take complete and total responsibility for all that have created for themselves, the “good” and the “bad”.
Although initially the realization that all your issues are self created, that you have been the one making yourself miserable, that it was not what anyone else did to you that made you feel the way you do; comes as a massive blow, a massive blow to the ego mind. The same ego mind, that in attempt to keep itself in control, kept telling you that it wasn’t you, that it was the way people treated you that made you act the way you did. If only your external reality changed then you would too, sound familiar?
It always starts from within, your external world is directly created by how you perceive things, a perception that correlates directly with who you are inside and where you are at in your internal world.
Your ego mind is not you, it’s not who you TRULY are, therefore there is no need to allow these thoughts or even beliefs to dictate your life. Through accepting total responsibility for everything in your life, whilst holding a deep sense of compassion and acceptance for ALL that you have chosen to experience and ultimately standing fiercely empowered in the truth of who you are. You will truly come to liberate yourself from your past, for it does not have to continue to shape who you are now.
As the absolute master and creator of your reality, the master who has taken responsibility for every aspect of their life, you will be completely free to start creating and attracting all that you truly desire. With the newfound knowledge that you were the creator of so many of your issues, you are also now aware that you are the solution to them all. You now have the ability to start vibrating higher, and to ultimately start achieving all that you believed you couldn’t before. As soon as you start personifying this truth, with complete totality and honesty, you will see.
For self responsibility is not heavy but weightless, it will uplift you, allowing you to flow through life effortlessly. So own it, own your journey. Be directly responsible for everything in your life. You will always be acceptant of all that happens as you will not see it as “good” or “bad” but as a necessary lessons that you created for some significant reason. It is up to you to interpret the situations that arise in your life as such.
The choice has been and always will be yours, to make, or not to make.
As I dove into the depths of my mind I was presented with a completely new realm; a vast ocean of endlessly swirling possibilities and potentials, waiting to be cultivated from the subconscious to the surface:conscious awareness. The possibilities are truly limitless, requiring only our awareness to bring them to fruition. True empowerment lies beyond the realm of what is known by the mind, here exists a field of pure potentiality, a breeding ground for ultimate creation.
The unknown; an endless void full of unrealized possibilities, where everything exists as a thought rather than an actuality giving you the ultimate power to create the physical reality you have always desired.
In the society that we live in today the unknown is commonly seen through the eyes of fear. Amongst other things, this is due to the fact that subconsciously our minds have been conditioned and programmed to view everything unpredictable or unfamiliar as something to be afraid of. In reality this mind created fear is fear of what we think we know the unknown will hold. Essentially it is a nonexistent. See, in order to be afraid of something in this way you must be living outside the present moment. Since nothing exists outside of the now, this fear is simply the minds creation of a negative premonition of what you believe could happen. Doesn’t this seem ridiculous? To allow one’s mind to create scenarios that are simply possibilities and put so much weight on them that you begin to change your present self to accommodate to that fear?
Although this may seem ridiculous now it has been bought to your awareness, it is in fact a constantly looping cycle that many of us continue to play throughout our entire lives. We spend our whole lives unconsciously developing mental habits and tendencies, creating and cementing thought patterns and emotional responses to all the situations and experiences that we have been, are, and could possibly be experiencing, till it gets to the point that we think we can predict how things will go. It is one of the minds methods of control. If the mind thinks it knows what will happen next it feels safe. However these patterns can send us spiraling deeper and deeper into a world controlled by our own expectations, in this world we begin to truly live inside a trap created by our minds. A trap of expectation in which you have now allowed yourself to believe your mind knows how you will react or respond to situations in your life, therefore you are no longer giving yourself the option to choose from the limitless outcomes that are actually possible. This trap of expectation not only eludes us into living within the constraints of our self-expectation but also opens the door for others to treat us the same way.
Each mind has its own unique perception, no two people will ever perceive the exact same reality, it is both the most beautiful and tormenting aspect of who we are as beings. Each individual creates with their minds a picture of who they think they are; the “ego” self, the identity or personality. This “ego” self then continues to create an image for everyone they know based on their past actions, words, traits or experiences. The “ego” self hates change, it hates the idea that someone, or worse even you, could stray from this mentally fabricated image, because if you did it would lose control, it wouldn’t know who you were outside of your ego identity.
The fear takes over. The fear of the unknown, the fear of the you that exists outside of the mentally created image that identifies solely with the “ego” , the fear that is completely irrational and self-inflicted. This fear is non-existent for things will simply be as they are. We as infinite beings of Love and Light know this, even if it has been buried deep beneath a sea of conditioning. We are forever growing and changing and if we don’t create a space for ourselves to undergo this natural growth and progression we become stagnant, living our whole lives trying to fit into not only our own mental image but also that of others or the environment around us. These unhealthy patterns begin to define us. Everything outside the image of who you are supposed to be ; the unknown you, the real you that exists beyond the trap of our minds, becomes something to be afraid of. Any decision that your mind believes could create an outcome outside of what you deem to know begins to scare you. Nobody wants to their life governed by fear.
Your mind is a survival tool. Fear is a survival mechanism that occurs when your brain senses a risk. A mechanism that was extremely useful in a time where we had to face life threatening situations in order to just feed ourselves and our family as it allows us to think creatively in the name of survival. Yet it has quickly become misplaced in a day and age where we no longer have to endure such dangers in our day to day lives. The mind also uses fear and control to best serve the “ego” self which thrives off external approval and acceptance. Since the mind is driven by fear and control it likes nothing less than change or the unknown because its programming has not reached this far, in this realm it has no idea what patterns to put into play, and this scares it. However our minds are so much more powerful than we realize and can not only survive but thrive and create in the realm of the unknown, we just have to teach them how to. We can either choose to live our whole lives solely identifying and basing our self-value on our minds, allowing our thoughts to run ramped , completely governing our actions.
Or we can choose to identify outside of the mind and seize control of our lives by choosing to step outside and view the antics of the mind from the point of an observer. In doing so we observe the “negative” patterns and thought processes and learn to catch ourselves in these habits, therefore we are no longer controlled or governed by them but we simply view them objectively. You begin to notice that although the “negative” thoughts and emotions still effect you, this effect no longer consumes you, it simply passes as you observe the same old habits comically, watching them slip away. Rather than seeing the thoughts that come to your mind or the emotions you feel as a definition of who you are, as you would if you identified solely with your ego self , you see it instead as an opportunity to gain more wisdom of your mind ,which in turn allows you to train it further. By treating these free flowing aspects accordingly you have begun to actualize and align yourself with the universal law of impermanence, you now not only know but understand the impermanence of our external reality, and that within the framework of our bodies. This knowledge is extremely valuable because it allows us to gain true objectivity over the situations and experiences in our lives, as when we truly realize nothing lasts forever it allows us to detach ourselves enough to not allow every little thing to influence or define us. In regards to the “negative” thought patterns or emotions that are still there, you are now simply aware of them arising and then passing away, because like everything in this universe; they are impermanent. The less consumed you become by your thoughts and emotions the less power your mind has over you and the more true freedom you have. Once we free ourselves completely from this illusion of sense of self depending on and identifying solely with the mind, we come to see that the unknown is nothing to be afraid of, the unknown is the true breeding ground of all creation, creativity, growth and change. You begin to see it would make no sense that one could change or create something in an environment where one’s mind believes it can predict the outcomes. The unknown on the other hand is pure freedom, a void between what we know and what we could create if we truly begun to utilize our minds as the tools that they really are.
Dimensions of Consciousness
5Th Dimensional consciousness; the ultimate gateway into a new realm of reality. A realm that exists here on the earth right before our very eyes. A realm that is simply waiting to reveal itself.
Although it remains both philosophically and scientifically unexplained, its relationship to with objective world still a mystery; consciousness is something that we can all say exists. For consciousness itself is intrinsic to ALL that we experience. If it is undoubtedly existent , surely it must hold within it various levels or dimensions? For example one could say that animals experience a different level of self awareness to humans or that babies are not conscious in the same way that grown adults are. However, this is not to say that one experience of consciousness is better than another, simply that differences exist. So what if the waking state of consciousness experience by fully developed humans also held within it varying degrees of awareness? or different dimensions, ones we could not begin to comprehend…
Through my own experiences I have come to discover that the ability to access these other dimensions is a gift, a tool. Learning to become aware and ultimately to free our minds of compulsive thought can enable us to learn and grow without bounds, unfolding at every moment into a truer more authentic version of ourselves. This process of conscious evolution also works simultaneously towards the positive transformation of all life on earth. However my beliefs, like everyones, are subjective to my experience, there I aim only to bring perspective and to spark within a desire to understand and learn more about ourselves and the world around us.
Mathematically speaking dimensions are not physical manifestations, but tools which we use to help us describe the relative position between two objects in space. However, dimensions of consciousness in the sense intended here refer to the varying degrees of self awareness that we are able to access as multidimensional BEINGS who have simply forgotten the truth of who WE really are.
Through the illustration of my truth I aim to explore how our level of consciousness correlates directly with how many of the dimensions of our reality we are truly able to perceive.
The world we live in today is scientifically and mathematically considered to be 3 dimensional, since three coordinates; length, width and depth are needed to locate a point within it. Therefore from a mathematical point of view, when people say we live in a 3D world they are essentially saying we live in a world where in order to describe the relative position between two objects in space, we require 3 numbers. Each number indicates how far you need to go in the three possible perpendicular directions to get from one object to the other.
The perception of all 3 of these dimensions correlates with the level of consciousness experienced by human beings and the higher animal kingdom. These animals and human beings, with an awareness of all of these 3 dimensions, also hold a belief that they themselves are separate individuals, existing without any sense of the interconnectedness of all beings and actions.
3rd dimensional consciousness is defined by everything physical. The world is perceived in a completely material way through the 5 senses; sight hearing, smell, taste and touch as society urges us to believe that this is the only reality that exists. In 3d consciousness you feel as though you as an individual are walking this life alone. Life feels like survival of the fittest. Your sense of self and your identity are based on factors in your physical reality; by the way you look, by the car you drive, by the job you have or by the people that you surround yourself with. In this dimension of consciousness you are controlled, not only by society and your need to belong but also by your mind, and therefore the thoughts you have and emotions you experience. In many cases you are completely unaware of this. On observation you may come to realize that you are rarely ever truly present, that you spend most of your life living inside your head. Your version of present is commonly based on being physically present with no regards to where you are mentally. Mentally the majority of the time is spent living in the past or the future. Your life becomes an endless cycle of future imagination and dead past that constantly contributes to the ever growing image of “who you think you are” and how you “should be acting” in accordance with that image. Your fulfillment seems to come from the material aspects of life such as a promotion, social status, making money, buying a new car etc. through achieving these things you feel validated and successful. Everything in your life that seems to be uncannily “good” or “bad” is just a “coincidence” or a strange event that the mind tries to rationalize. Since you rely on your 5 senses to navigate the world you pay no regard to your 6th sense; intuition. In fact in many cases intuition is simply considered a superstition, something which you are so disconnected from that you cannot even seem to acknowledge its presence within you.
However a lot of joy comes from this reality, from the material comforts of life that give you all the instant gratification that you could ever desire. Chosen oblivion can make things simple.
Essentially you are born, you study, you work to survive, you die. You spend the little time that you get off from your 9-5 job consuming and overindulging in material pleasures. If you do manage to grasp what material success it is that you believe you desire, you continue to seek more, constantly craving, constantly wanting, always believing that if you catch hold of whatever thing you have set your mind on then you will be fully happy. You keep telling yourself, just this one more thing then I will be content and complete. Those who have everything they could ever want in a materialistic sense are often filled with a bottomless feeling of longing, incompleteness and emptiness that they cannot seem to satisfy. If only they knew the answer had been within the whole time.
Those choosing not to enlighten themselves from their minds, or open themselves to the truths of the universe. Those choosing to stay stuck in a dimension governed by fear, worry and doubt, everything upon which the ego feeds. They cannot see any dimension beyond what they know to be proven true. How could they ? for they have not experienced anything else. You would not deem it possible for a plant or ant from the lower animal kingdom, with awareness of only 2 dimensions of space; length and width, to perceive a third, would you?
Perhaps we feel more moments of 4th or 5th dimensional consciousness than we know. Maybe we all shift through dimensions without even realizing? However, it is common that your new found perception, feeling or thought would most likely be quickly linked by the mind. The mind would link it to something that was taking place in your physical reality; a justification method in attempt to keep you trapped in the reality that you know. The known reality that feels safe and comfortable for your doubting mind.
To even begin to imagine how you could choose to perceive everything in your reality as necessary for your growth. How you could choose to live in a state of Ultimate BEING. That you could always try your best to embody Unconditional Love, Acceptance and Gratitude for all that IS, all seems ridiculous. Such words are considered a fiction of the imagination, crazy talk. It’s how the mind is naturally programmed to deal with such truths. In fact deep down you know the truth , like all of us it is embedded within in you. You are just choosing to ignore it. For, at the end of the day it is all a choice.
More thoughts flood my mind.
Since we live in a 3D world moving through time, we are in fact living in a 4D reality already.
If the 4th dimension is time, objects in a 4D world are described in terms of length, width, depth and the specific time at which they are located. Collectively these 4 dimensions are interlinked and inseparable, known as space-time. In this 4th dimensional reality as we know it we cannot move freely in time, we move subjectively in one direction neither going back nor moving forward. Awareness of the real nature of all 4 dimensions is experienced by shifting what is hidden deep within the unconscious mind to the surface of your conscious awareness. This new found consciousness is then experienced primarily through the higher self that exists beyond the physical form.
This higher self possesses the powers of advanced dreaming, imagination, psychic ability, intuition and creativity, all of which are bought to manifestation in our physical form through the expansion of our conscious mind. As far as I know to this day this level of awareness is only experienced by human beings in a 4th dimensional state of consciousness or higher. In this state the mind begins to open to the truth of Unity Consciousness; what affects one affects all. A truth which is essentially the key to all the struggle and mentally created suffering that continues to take place every day, as we continue to tell ourselves we do not have enough “time” to resolve what we have created, or that we do not have enough unpolluted “space” or resources for all to co-exist and ultimately thrive together.
A spark of consciousness starts to grow within you, as you enter the gateway, awakening to the interconnectedness of all that IS. Your priorities change. Your growth, mentally spiritually and emotionally becomes a priority, you desire to follow your passions and in doing so become more and more guided by your intuition; your sense of inner knowing. You are no longer driven by material success or outside validation, you seek a deeper meaning to life, for you know that there is so much more to this universe than meets the eye. You understand that life is what you make of it, that it is your choice to create and perceive it as you wish. You know that what exists outside is a direct reflection of your internal world. You realize you will never truly be happy till you free yourself from your mind, till you find that happiness that exists within you, for once you are grounded in your authentic state of ultimate BEING every passing present moment in your external reality will be cherished as a blessing.
However this shift is not easy, it is the ultimate battle of two realities. The battle between all that you believed you knew and all that IS. The battle of the ego-mind and the higher self. As the battle intensifies it can feel as though you are going insane, as though you are being torn between two worlds. Ultimately you know the reality that aligns with your evolved state of consciousness yet perhaps your life circumstance still requires you to play the game. To delve into the 3D reality which is no longer existent to you.
You play the game, and you play well because you now understand that none of it matters it is all trivial nonsense, all that truly matters, all that is real, exists outside this box.
Yet sometimes you play too well. You get caught by the mind traps that are placed everywhere, hooked by the sensory stimulants that exist at every twist and turn, constantly aiming to make you crave, to seek more than you have, to never feel content with what IS.
If you are not established fully in what is just beginning to reveal itself to you, if you are not established in a 5th dimensional state of consciousness, if you have simply begun to grasp and feel what it is about, then of course you will jump between levels of consciousness. We all do as the control of the 3D world is still so powerful.
Yet you must detach yourself from all that you think you are in order to free yourself from the expectations of others and of yourself. You must free yourself from the physical reality in which you have created this illusion of self. If you do not allow yourself to grow and change you will stay stuck within such a reality your whole life.
It is only in the unknown, free from everything that you believed to be true that you can truly establish yourself securely in your truth. Once you are fully grounded in your truth you cannot be sucked back, you cannot even begin to imagine living your life in any other way.
It is through accepting this, through accepting that there will be moments where we feel over run by old programs in our minds, where we feel trapped by our inner knowing, for it is through this Unconditional Acceptance of ourselves and of all that is occurring as necessary for our growth that we become more established in our authentic truth with each passing moment. It is through the realization that in reality the 4th dimension; time, is not fixed, nor does it even exist beyond the perception of what we believe it to be. Time is a man-made construct, used to keep track of past and future events. It holds no tangibility. If time were a tangible thing that was existent before we conceptualized it how would it be so subject to the ever changing state of our perception?
Essentially our level of consciousness is the primary definition of the perception of our reality. By raising our consciousness, our perception naturally changes. Therefore since our consciousness holds the power, “time” is only existent as a concept perceived as real within the minds of a collective group. It is used as a method of keeping control and order in play within the society that we live in today. We have the power to choose whether we live our lives governed by this man-made construct that was essentially created to keep track of events that are no longer or not yet real. We will always only ever be experiencing the present moment.
Beyond the illusion of our minds, in a higher state of consciousness and awareness you awake to the truth that the past and future are simply co-existing parallel realities in the NOW. The story version of self that exists only in the mind quickly begins to dissipate. Although our physical vessels, as we know them today, may be subject to some concept of passing “time” or the passing of many NOW’s, we as BEINGS are not. Our higher selves, the timeless essence of being that exists outside of all that is physical is not. This timeless essence is the real “you”, it is the sense of awareness that is somehow above and beyond everything else, it is the basis of all your experiences. This timeless essence unfolds evermore as we allow ourselves to shift through the dimensions of consciousness that already exists within us. It is only through conscious choice that we begin to shift to a higher state of ultimate BEING, a new level of awareness that allows us to stay grounded in this new dimension of reality; the 5th dimension, the dimension of spirit. This 5th dimensional awareness of not only the true nature of all 4 dimensions but also of the timeless essence that exists within us all changes our perception of all that exists.
Suddenly it is as if in every NOW moment we are being presented with all possibilities, from all times, within all timelines. You are always being born. You are always going to school. You are always dying. The spirit is not constrained to linear time or space, therefore neither are YOU. When living always fully present in this NOW moment your eyes are opened to the reality that is before you. In each arising and passing moment there are an infinite number of possibilities and timelines to choose from. As the physical embodiment of the spirit you are the true observer, you are the creator and master. You are personally involved in the creation of everything within your reality. As the embodiment of this higher self, this real “you” that lives through Unconditional Love, Unconditional Gratitude and Unconditional Acceptance, the light that radiates from every depth of your being transforms your whole reality.
Now imagine a world where every being perceives the universe from a state of 5th dimensional consciousness…
