Ascension: What are “Dimensions
I have been quite surprised to note that there have been some threads popping up here on ATS recently talking about the concepts of “ascension”
and how we (either individually or as a group) might be moving to a higher dimensional consciousness. The reason this surprises me is because I
wouldn’t think this would be usual ATS fare. But there they are. And in all these threads there is the very expected mix of believers and
debunkers. There are also a number of folks asking some very real and pertinent questions: "What IS ascension?" "What does it mean?" "What are
these dimensions?" "Where are they?" That kind of thing. Well this whole topic is of some considerable interest to me (I have authored a book on
the subject and am running an ascension school here in my home town). And so I thought to offer a perspective on these subjects beginning with the
question “What are the Dimensions?”
Before I get into it though I would like to make a few statements.
1. I don’t believe in the concept of “proof”. You can’t even prove to me beyond all shadow of a doubt that you exist, so how can I prove to
you that my experiences are real, true and valid. I can’t. So I won’t try. I’ll gladly tell you what is true for me and even explain to you why
I find it to be so but I won’t waste my energy with trying to prove anything to you. Your belief or disbelief in anything is your issue alone. You
are invited, if you like, to consider everything I write to be a fictional theory that approximates reality from my perspective. Or just plain
nonsense if you prefer. :-)
2. I absolutely do not require of you that you agree with me on anything. If we all agreed on everything then all but one of us would be redundant! So
go ahead and tell me you disagree. I have zero issue with that. And I will happily discuss our points of disagreement. But again, I will not be trying
to persuade you of anything. At best I am merely setting my case before you on the off chance that you might find it interesting or useful.
3. I undertake to treat you with respect – if you can’t offer me basic human respect in return then don’t bother posting. I will anyway not
engage with you.
3. Much of the information I have, I obtain as a form of pure intuitive “knowing” from my Higher-Self. Occasionally, when I tell people this, they
look at me as if they just noticed I have a highly contagious rash. And that’s okay. Folks who hold no truck with “woo-woo” notions like
“higher selves” and can’t stretch their paradigm to the possibility of a conversation with a spirit being are probably best off wandering away
shaking their heads. It saves both of us the effort of a pointless conversation.
4. Finally, if you find anything that I say to be in conflict with what you hold to be true… please trust your own truth over mine every time. I’m
here to share what I have in a loving, respectful manner. Not to convert you or change you in any way.
With all that out the way. For my perspective on what these dimensions are that we are supposed to be ascending thought… I’d like to share with
you an excerpt from the second book in The Ascension Papers series. The first one is in print but I am still writing the second one. This excerpt was
originally published here on my website
. This excerpt takes the form of a conversation
between myself and my Spirit Guide, a being called “8”.
Zingdad: So, 8, what exactly ARE these dimensions that we hear so much of?
8: Thank you for the question. In discussing this topic with you I am going to speak from the perspective of the pre-eminence of consciousness and so
my version of what the dimensions are will be a little different from the mainstream scientific view on planet earth. I will try to talk about this
very complex subject in a way that is easy to comprehend. To do so I will start with the very familiar and work outwards from there.
You are, right now, experiencing yourself as a 3-dimensional body in a 3-dimensional world. The world of 3 dimensions should therefore be very easy
for you to comprehend. By “dimension” we mean a space that can be measured. For example, the dimensions of a cube are expressed as length x height
x width. All objects in your reality can be made to fit in a cube of sufficient size. All objects therefore exist within three spatial dimensions. Any
point in your reality can be defined by three co-ordinates. So there are three dimensions to all things in your reality and to the whole of your
But as this IS your reality you should be very familiar with it so and we can move on and describe the other dimensions. Let’s take a step down to
the second dimension next.
If you stand between a bright light source and a screen then you will cast a shadow on the screen. What you, perhaps, haven’t considered before now
is that your shadow is your body in 2 dimensions. It has height and width but it has no depth. No matter how closely you look you will never be able
to measure a shadow’s thickness. It has none as it is not really a “thing” in the normal sense of the word. It is merely an absence of light.
So, it has only two dimensions: the dimension of height and the dimension of width. Your shadow is a 2d object.
Now I would like you to please imagine a 2d being – someone very like your shadow – but a being of independent consciousness. He is going to help
us understand dimensions. Let’s give him a name. Let’s call him Shadowman. Let’s imagine you could have a conversation with him. Remember his
world isn’t actually simply “flat”. It is much worse than that. The conception of depth does simply not exist for him. So, not only can
Shadowman not see over even the smallest obstacle, he can’t even begin to imagine the concept of “over”. He can’t even think in terms of there
being an “above” or a “below”.
If Shadowman and a number of his friends stood next to each other he would not be able to see beyond the friend on either side of him and he would
also not be able to conceptualise what it might be like to see “past” someone. So, if you asked him how many friends had gathered and he only had
one friend on either side of him in his direct line of sight then his best answer would have to be “two”. Other friends that were beyond his line
of sight would not be in his presence and he could not know that they were there. You, on the other hand, could see everyone in the gathering like so
many shadows on the wall and you’d immediately know how many there were by simply counting them. You could tell Shadowman which friends he was going
to see at this party and he’d be astounded at your prescience. Not only this, but you would be able to see, to all intents and purposes, inside
Shadowman. You’d be able to see any internal organs and structures his body might have and even what he ate for lunch! You’d also be able to see
inside closed boxes and “through” walls and barriers. Your ability to see and know things like this would astound Shadowman. He’d think you were
god-like in your comprehension of his world. You would, to his mind, have an impossible ability to see what lay ahead of him long before he could
discover this for himself. And if you tried to explain to him that you didn’t really have supernatural powers but could merely perceive the extra
dimension of depth, then you would find that he would simply not understand what you were talking about. You could possibly use analogies to give him
some idea as to what depth is like but… sadly… he would never really know what it would be like to live in a world with this third dimension,
And that should give you some inkling of what a 2d object is like. It is a flat shape with no depth.
In order to help us understand what a 1-dimensional object might be like we are going to get Shadowman to help us some more. He is going to fetch a
bright source of light and a screen from his 2d world and stand in-between them. Just as your 3d body has a 2d shadow, so Shadowman’s 2d body will
yield a 1d shadow.
Let’s do this together in our imaginations, shall we? Shadowman has a perfectly flat lamp that shines a “flat” light in only 2 dimensions which
causes his 2d body to cast a shadow on his flat, 2 dimensional screen. What does his shadow look like to us? Can you, in your imagination, see that
his shadow is just a vertical line? It is as tall as Shadowman is, but, being his shadow, it has no width. And, of course, just as Shadownman has no
depth, his shadow also has no depth. It is a line of no width and no depth. It is a 1d object.
To take the next step down to 0 dimensions, we simply continue the process. We take Shadowman’s shadow, the vertical 1d line, and we imagine that
there is a 1d light source and a 1d screen on either side of it. But, because it inhabits a 1d world, the light and the screen can only be placed on
the same axis as the line. There is no “in front’, no “next to”, no “to the side of” in the 1d world. There is only the single dimension
WHICH FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE is above and below the vertical line of Shadowman’s shadow.
So, let us imagine that we place a 1d light (that only shines a laser-like light in a perfect line) so that it shines a light down on Shadowman’s
shadow and it projects a shadow on the screen below it. What would this shadow look like? Can you, in your imagination, see that it would be a point?
A single point of no width, no depth and no height. It is a 0d object.
Z: But 8, if it has no width, no height and no depth… then it can’t really exist, can it? I mean it can’t for example, have any mass. It can’t
really be a “thing” in the ordinary sense of the word, can it?
Maybe it is just an imaginary object?
8: In fact anything below 3d has no mass. But you’re right this 0d point is not a thing like anything you have any experience of. It is, from that
perspective, a no-thing. It is nothing. And that is all it is to those in the scientific community that have no place in their world-view for
consciousness. But for the more enlightened there is much more to this “imaginary nothing”.
To be clear: this is not a point on a surface such as a dot on a piece of paper. A dot on a piece of paper is a 3d object. With a microscope, or
similar, you can quickly see that it has three dimensions. And, more importantly, the dot resides on a piece of paper (which is 3d) on your desk
(again 3d) in your universe (also 3d). You cannot separate the dot from the context in which it finds itself. No matter how small you draw that dot it
is still a 3d dot in a 3d world and there is no possible way you will ever be able to make it any thing other than that because YOU are a 3d being in
a 3d world. A 0d object does not exist on a piece of paper. In fact it does not exist “on” anything at all. From the perspective of a 0d being
there is nothing “outside” of it for it to be on. At 0d all things are integrated and there is no separation between one thing and another. Indeed
it is the creation of the dimensions themselves that allow for the illusion of separation between things. So, a 0d being is pure consciousness, there
is no “you” and no “me”. There is no “here” and no “there”. There is no “this” and no “that”. There is no “before” and no
“after”. There is only a singularity of everything which could possibly ever be, all condensed into one singular point with nothing at all outside
of that point. That is 0d.
Z: Wow. The 0d point contains EVERYTHING!
8: It does.
Z: And where can one find such a point. I mean… really… in my world how would I find such a 0d point?
8: Everywhere. There are an infinite number of such points literally everywhere. At the very, very finest scale this is all this whole universe is
composed of. Points of everythingness.
Not bad for an imaginary no-thing, wouldn’t you say? This is the nothing that is everything that you, your whole reality and everything in it, are
composed of at the very finest scale.
Do you see? You have heard it said here in The Ascension Papers and certainly in other spiritual works that all things contain the whole. Well that
would not be possible if the very smallest of all things were not, itself, the whole!
Were it possible for you to invent a magical microscope that could zoom-in so far that you could see across dimensional boundaries then, at your
maximum magnification, you might get to see such a 0d point. And if by some further magic you could zoom into one of these points then, inside that
point, you would find… the whole universe!
Z: Oh wow! I get it! The whole universe is contained within each of these smallest points… which in turn is what every thing in the universe is made
of! Wow! That is the best mind-boggle I’ve had in a long time.
Except… wait a minute… something doesn’t make sense to me, 8. May I pause you here to ask a question or two?
Z: Firstly I’d like to know why, if I zoom in, I’d find the universe and not something… bigger. I mean you have told me that the universe is not
everything that is. That there are other realities outside this universe, for example. Secondly I’d like to know about the physics of that finest,
smallest 0d point. I don’t think our quantum scientist have found such a “point”. I think they are talking in terms of “strings” being the
smallest thing, not this imaginary point. Are they wrong?
8: Good, good questions. I like them.
First answer: When I say you will find “the universe” I have a somewhat broader definition of that word than you normally would. I don’t mean
the space around you that you can observe with telescopes alone. Your universe is the 3d universe. It is one single slice of a far greater whole. What
I am talking about is the whole universe. All 8 dimensions of it. So these 8 dimensions are what the universe REALLY is. And this universe is a
contained unit… a singular whole entity on its own. It is not the only such singular construct though… it is akin to one grain of sand on the
beaches of eternity. It is one whole perfect thing complete unto itself amongst many, many such others.
Gaining access to this universe requires of you that you must “split yourself up” in a particular way. You must disintegrate the unity of your
soul so that you can experience this universe as it is. Once you have done this then you are able to navigate around inside the universe. The fragment
of yourself that you have placed at the third dimensional level, for example, can have many incarnations here and can feel itself to be a human being
on a planet such as Earth while other fragments of yourself can, in a similar manner, experience other dimensional levels of this universe. As a
result of this special “disintegration” process you can, however, not simply leave. The part that might wish to leave cannot leave other parts
behind. Only the whole of you that entered may leave. So you must remain here until you have managed to “re-integrate” all your fragments. This
very healing and integration of the soul is what we are calling the ascension process. As you ascend… as you gather together all that you are into a
single, whole, integrated, sovereign being… so you will find your consciousness re-resonating to the place where you can “get out” of this
universe. When you are truly at one with yourself then you are at one with everything. Then you find yourself at the “surface” of the universe, if
I may speak metaphorically. This “surface” exists at exactly the place where 8d and 0d are one and the same thing, where 8d and 0d contain all the
other dimensions. It exists at exactly the place where all things are One and you are One with all. At that place there are no boundaries and no
divides. That is the place where you may go from anywhere to anywhere. You may go to any other reality that exists. Then there are no limitations at
all. Because, indeed, that “surface” is also the nexus between all realities. At that place you already are… everywhere!
And that is the answer to your first question.
Now to your second question. Your physicists’ best effort to theorise a description of your reality at the very smallest level has yielded a concept
called “strings”. This is actually a pretty useful notion. There are indeed energetic filaments that run through your reality. As they vibrate and
oscillate in your reality it creates an effect that your science has observed and called sub-atomic particles. So far so good. But what, pray tell,
are these strings?
Z: Um… I think they are energy?
8: Yes… at that level everything can be said to be energy. But I am asking in terms of our discussion about dimensions.
Z: Oh, right. They are long but… I don’t know… maybe they have no width and no depth? Maybe these “strings” are 1d objects?
8: That is very astute. Yes. And if you understand that these strings are 1d objects then clearly you haven’t yet found the finest, smallest 0d
point yet! These 0d points of singularity and unity project the strings into your reality. They are the point of origin and destination for all the
strings. The strings in turn are the source of the phenomena you call sub-atomic particles. Sub atomic particles dance together to form atoms which in
turn bond into molecules. And molecules are the building blocks of your world.
Got that so far?
Z: Yes, thank you. I follow.
8: Good. So, in summary then, the 0d points are the source, the very primal, smallest and finest origin of everything in your universe. They also
contain the whole universe. That makes them pretty special, don’t you think?
And since you enjoy mind-boggles so much, here’s another one for you. Even though these 0d points are everywhere all around you and inside you...
there is actually only one of them!
By definition there cannot be more than one 0d point. It IS the whole universe. If there was another, different one then it would have to be an
entirely different reality and could not be found inside this reality. There is, therefore, an infinite number of 0d points everywhere inside this
reality but, in truth, it is all the same one.
How do you like?
Z: You’re right. That’s a great mind-boggle (laughs). But somehow that feels right to me. Even though I can’t understand it I actually get that
8: Excellent, then we can move on from 0d. Now we are going go “up” the dimensional scale and try to describe the 4th dimension and beyond to you.
The fourth dimension is time. From your personal perspective you could say your 4d body would be a long snake-like form. It begins quite small at the
tail with a new born baby. Then moment by moment it grows longer and larger as you grow to be a young boy. Then it gets to its full girth as you
become a young man. Longer and longer it gets with each day that passes for you. Its cross-section shape is your body at any given moment. So, though
it ceases to get much taller after you became a young man it may well get somewhat wider as you progress into your middle years. The longer you live,
the longer this snake grows. Maybe you can imagine it a little like a loaf of bread: each moment of your life is one slice and each slice is your
whole 3d body. Moment-upon-moment the snake grows longer and longer until it eventually ends with the death of your body. From your perspective you
live a linear life from beginning to end forming one long snake-like body.
Z: But why is it long like that? Why does the snake get longer? Why couldn’t it be like Russian dolls with baby-me in the middle and as I get bigger
I just form new layers outside that?
8: It is a good question, even though you ask it somewhat in jest. The answer is this: if you did not move at all there would not be progression. This
movement which produces the snake-like growth is time. If you stood perfectly, still time would stand still for you.
Z: But that makes no sense! I stand still all the time!
8: You stand still in 3d but you cannot stand still in 4d. And it is as a result of your movement in 4d that you experience time. If you sat dead
still for a whole day, by the beginning of the next day you would have moved once around the circumference of your planet.
So how then are you going to stay perfectly still?
And the movements you make in time cause your long, snake-like body to be shaped into many spiral coils and loops which ultimately make a torus shape.
Let me explain.
At the end of the above-mentioned day you do not end where you began because the planet itself has moved on. It travels around the sun once a year.
Making your series of spirals into another bigger spiral. But again you do not end where you began because your solar system is very slowly rotating.
In fact EVERYTHING in your universe is rotating right up to the very universe itself. And so, no matter how long you live, your body would be growing
and aging and transforming, moment by moment, as it hurtled forward at quite some speed through space in an amazing pattern of spirals made up of ever
smaller spirals. The movements you actually choose to make when you walk, drive or fly in aeroplanes don’t even show up as perturbations compared to
that patterns created by your high-speed flit though space and time.
Z: Amazing. As you were describing this to me I got a picture in my head of the cord used to connect a telephone hand-set to its base. It’s a
spiral. I imagined curling that spiral cable into a much bigger spiral and then taking that bigger spiral and winding it up around itself into a
8: …yes, that is the gist of it. And the longer you live the more spirals you can be a part of. Human lives are, in the greater scheme of things, of
very short duration. So your motion only incorporates some of the smaller spirals. If you could live a few billion years then your 4d body would begin
to show the arc of the rotation of the universe. But no matter how many spirals you form they always tend to create a torus. A torus is a doughnut
shape. This is because you travel in a circle around and central space. So your snake-body makes a torus loop. Then it makes more and more loops until
it makes a shape like a loose spring. But as the spring-shape gets longer it curls round upon itself until it makes a complete loop and then you see
another torus! But the torus doesn’t quite complete because it doesn’t end where it started. And the pattern just keeps repeating making larger
and larger near-toroids.
So that is what your body would look like to you if you were a 4d being. And if you were a 4d being then you would think of yourself quite differently
from the way you currently do. In much the same way as you might currently look around the room you are sitting in and see a chair over there and a
book over here, your 4d self could look around and see being middle-aged over here and being a toddler over there. All of your whole life is “right
here” to that being. He does not need to wonder what will happen when you wake up tomorrow morning because that is as clear and present to him as
the keyboard under your fingers is to you now. Your whole life, from start to end, is his “here and now”.
What he might wonder about and try to work with is not “tomorrow” or “yesterday”, it is “alternate”. Which is what is dealt with by the 5d
So 4d being. It is a time-like projection of your reality and it consists of spirals forming toroids.
5d is an “expansion” or a “projection” of 4d. Let us use you as an example. There are many things you could have been, could have done, could
have experienced but chose not to. You feel you are living the life of all the things you did choose and al the things you didn’t choose don’t
exist. Well, on some level they do exist. On some level every single choice that could ever have been offered to you was taken and every single
outcome to all those choices was experienced. And that level is the 5th dimension.
In the 3rd dimension you are living one life with one set of choices. At 4d you are the whole of that time-line from birth to death. In the 5th
dimension you are a cloud of potentiality in which all the probable and possible choices you could have taken exist simultaneously. Your 5d body is a
cloud through which you could plot any number of possible time-lines. The choices that are closest to your Soul’s intent are nearer the centre of
the cloud. That is where the most energy is expended. That is where you will find the most Life and the most vitality. The closer you, the 3d
expression, are to this centre core, the more vital and energetic you will be and the more “flow” you will find in your life. You will feel more
“right” about what you are doing and things will be easier to do. Move towards the outer limits of the cloud and you will experience hardship and
a decrease in personal energy and vitality. As you approach the edge of the cloud where your Soul ceased to express itself so you will cease to be
able to function. You won’t be able to go there. If you persist in trying you will experience a termination of the incarnation.
Z: But I don’t understand…
8: Of course you don’t. You are a 3d consciousness and I have just given you a 5d perspective. Much about this will be beyond your comprehension no
matter how hard we try. Until you experience it yourself it will elude you. But go ahead… tell me what bothers you.
Z: Well, for starters, if 5d-me has ALL the choices available then what is the point of me living a 3d life? Why not just look at all the choices and
choose the best path… and live that?
8: You were correct when you said you didn’t understand. These other alternatives are no less real, no less valid, no less lived and experienced
that your life is. They are all equally true and valid. There is no difference between the life you are living and a parallel life with slightly
different choices. The only difference is for you. You make particular choices and you experience the outcome of those choices. Your experiences are
just that… they are your experiences. The 5th dimension is a wave-form that includes all the possible experiences that might be had in the 3rd
dimensions. You, yourself, are an individual observer. The observer collapses the wave-form into a single event. You turn potentiality into actuality.
You do this for your own life and then you experience that life as your own. That is what you do. But in so doing you do not diminish infinity.
Infinity requires that all things that can exist, do exist. They must all be equally valid. And so it is for 5d-you. All the choices that you can
take… you do take. You take them all, live them all, see them all. But YOU my beloved 3d being, do not see all of them. You only see one linear and
direct path. You only see one out of every possible choice being actualised.
Z: That’s… simply mind-blowing. I don’t even know how to make sense of that.
8: Let me offer you a thought:
When we say you create your own reality do you not sometimes think that you must therefore be creating a reality for others around you also? If you
choose a happier world starting right now… then you must surely also choose for everyone else in the world, right? Does it not strike you that, if
this were true, that you were taking from them their right to create their world as more un-happy if they wanted?
Z: Uh… yeah. I had wondered about that.
8: Well, wonder no more! Each point of consciousness chooses for itself. You can live in a happier world and you will only experience other beings –
or other aspects of beings – who have also chosen for that happier world. The version of you that chooses a less happy tomorrow will be there to
experience that with others that are co-creating that with him. And if someone is creating a version of the world that is not at all congruent with
your soul-purpose then no version of you will be found in that world. As you approach those conditions then your incarnation will terminate. Or you
will not be born into that world in the first place.
Z: Astounding. I am so deeply failing to compute this info that I don’t even know what to say or think.
8: Let’s take a moment out then. Remember our imaginary conversation with Shadowman? Now maybe you understand poor Shadowman’s response to being
told about depth and how you are above him and can see inside him, past him to all the other flat people on the wall, through walls and inside boxes.
Trying to make sense of dimensional realities greater than you own can be a lot to cope with. I understand.
My advice is not to try too hard to think about it. The only real way you can actually think about these dimensions is with mathematics. But you
don’t have the training to do that kind of computation and those that DO have such training can only do the most basic calculations like extending a
2d square to a 3d cube to a 4d tesseract and so forth. It’s a neat bit of calculation but it doesn’t begin to explain life and experiences at the
various dimensional levels. It doesn’t take consciousness into consideration. So it ends up being lifeless and dry. It certainly can’t describe
what it might be like to live life as a 5d being!
So don’t try to hard to think about 5d, rather try to feel about it. Take a deep breath and move into your heart for a moment. Feel in your heart
what it might mean to you to know that you are experiencing one version of what you could be but that all versions are equally real and valid. All
versions are alive. All versions are equally “you”.
How does that feel?
Z: Hmm. I actually feel quite good about that. The confusion that is in my head isn’t in my heart. The first thing that comes up for me is the
realisation that all judgements I might have about myself are therefore pointless. If I am anyway all of the possible versions of me then I have
already taken all the best decisions AND all the worst decisions. And if I have already taken all those decisions and all of them are equally real
then the value judgements of “best” and “worst” become a bit meaningless, don’t they? Instead I can simply accept that each decision yields
an outcome. Then the only decision I have to make is if I like that outcome or not. If I like it then I can take more choices just like that and if I
don’t then I make different choices. But what I realise now is the value of the choices I would previously have called “bad”. Now they are
perfectly valid choices that have given me the gift of seeing exactly how and why I don’t like them. The fact that I have made those choices allows
me to take other decisions. I now take an informed, conscious decision.
So it’s actually incredibly liberating. If, at 5d, I am already all of it then I choose to gift to my 3d-self the opportunity to be the happiest,
most magnificent version of myself that I can be. I choose more love, more joy and more truth and wisdom. And I can be grateful to all the versions of
me that are choosing anything else because of the opportunity they gift to me.
8: That is quite a useful understanding to arrive at.
Something else you might consider is that there are other versions of you that are doing magnificently. They are not in any way “less” than you
but they are none-the-less doing something a little different from what you are doing. For example: you have felt the drive towards unity
consciousness and have used that drive to create The Ascension Papers. Well there is, for example, another version of you who is creating music that
is quite sublime and yet another that is making the most spectacular art. For yourself you have chosen language and words as your form of expression.
But it is through the hard work and constant effort of these other two alternate life-streams that run parallel to your own that you are able to
fairly easily pick up skills in music-making and visual art. Their work feeds you just as your hard work with ideas and words feeds them with
And it can be so for everyone. Everyone can draw inspiration from their own alternate life-streams and you can know too that every choice you make
does indeed affect the other alternate versions of you.
You and your alternate life-streams are, all together, one being… a 5d being. A cloud of consciousness.
At 6d you have made all the choices you, at a soul-level, ever possibly could have made. Here we are talking about all the different kinds of lives
YOU could conceivably have wanted to live inside this system. So this would be the collection of all the incarnations you have ever had – each
represented by a cloud of potentiality. When you gather them all together at 6d level then you realise that these lives are not separate things. They
are also not sequential. You currently think of your present moment as you sit here typing on your keyboard as being NOW. It is “the present” for
you. Everything that you have already experienced is “the past” and everything you have yet to experience is “the future”. Well, for your
6d-self all of your possible incarnations are all equally here and now. Your 6d self knows that you do not have “past lives” at all. You have
alternate lives, each with their own potentialities and probabilities but all together forming one greater whole.
6d-you knows that your choices in your current lifetime are being made at the same time as other choices in other lifetimes. All lifetimes directly
affect each other and none can be isolated from each other. It is only your illusion that they occur in a linear row and that they are separate
incarnations. It is a useful illusion as it helps you to gain a sense of your progression but it is, none the less, a figment of your imagination.
As you engage actively and consciously with your own spiritual growth you might begin to get a glimmering of this. For example: when you were younger
you knew nothing at all of your past lives and you were also full of all kinds of unresolved anger and fear. As you grew up so you worked very hard to
understand where these feelings came from. You went for hypnotic regression and uncovered the root-causes of much of what ailed you
psycho-spiritually. As you did this you engaged in an active and conscious process of loving, healing and integrating the parts of yourself that felt
most lost, alone and divorced from the wholeness of your soul. You thought in terms of doing “past life” work. But do you not see that you were
working directly in your own consciousness at the “eternal now” level? If that which hurt you was truly in your past then you would be able to go
back to observe that but you would not be able to heal it. It would remain as it was fixed in the past. But it is not so. You can heal your past. You
can bring love to the part of yourself that is struggling and you can help that version of yourself to find peace. So clearly you can affect and
change your past and work deeply in these alternate lives and you can, and do, do so with the choices you make right here in this lifetime. This is
because all these lifetimes are, at some level, one much greater life. Truly, I tell you when you do such spiritual work of inner-healing then you
begin to touch your own 6d consciousness. You are at such times gaining the awareness that you are, right now, able to change the course and alter the
experience of beings that have lived other lives in other times… even on other planets or in other realities. You can bring compassion, wisdom and
love to them and in so doing you not only relieve a pressure in your own psyche and release a blockage in your own energy but you also bring healing
and relief to them where they are. You do great work at such times. It is the work of The Oneness. This is the work of the 6d being and it can happen
inside your life and inside your consciousness if you have the courage to choose this and if you invite your highest wisdom, love and compassion to
act through you.
At 6d your physicality in many ways resembles a crystal lattice. If you imagine every moment of choice in your life to be a node, then your 4d-self is
a line drawn from one node to the next, plotting the path of all your choices from birth to death. At 5d we see that the nodes of choices not taken
are also valid and also exist. They are available as alternate time-lines. All these nodes together look like a cloud. Well now at 6d we realise that
all the many clouds of all the incarnations you have ever had all intersect. They are in fact not separate from each other. They are one single
greater entity. Each node is in perfect harmony and alignment with all the other nodes that are symmetrically positioned around it. If you understand
the physical structure of a crystal then you will have some insight into this explanation.
So that is you at 6d. A crystalline being.
At the 7d level your consciousness transcend the physical completely. You come to see that the physical is just an expression. For 7d-you, your
current life here in 3d is a bit like a note played on a guitar string. If you pluck the string the note is produced. If you pluck the same string
again in the same way a very similar note is produced. If you change an attribute of the string by, for example, tuning it differently you can get
variations on that note. But the note, though beautiful, is not a thing you need to worry about. It is just something that you can play if you wish to
7d-you does not confuse itself with its expressions. It knows it is not these lives and these bodies and these events. It knows that all of this taken
together is like the performance of a beautiful song. You can take it seriously if you like or you can do it with fun and lightness in your heart. You
can do it any which way you like but, when all is said and done, it is just something you are playing. It is not actually YOU. You are an eternal mote
of purest consciousness and cannot be altered or transformed into anything other than what you are by any of these experiences. And that realisation
is your window to 8d. If you are not changed by the game and the game only matters as much as you want it to, while you want it to, then you can, with
peace in your heart, release yourself from the game at any time.
At 7d you bring a very high level of consciousness to all that you observe. You are able, with a single thought, to change anything and everything in
the universe. But, ironically, you see it for what it is and so you end up enacting very little change at all. You see truly and you see that there is
nothing that is inherently broken here. Nothing here actually needs change and so you observe with love. You shine your Light. And you give all of
yourself as a the greatest gift of love to the Life that is expressed here before you finally turn and face eternity. Before you make the final great
transcendence and move into the everlasting oneness of 8d.
At 7d your form is Light. You are a beam of light that is not limited in its ability to shine or the form that it might take. It can be anywhere it
needs to be instantly. It is this Light which is the energy that precedes all matter. But you are intelligent Light and can manifest from your own
being any and all forms of matter as you might choose. It if your thoughts that hold matter together in existence. Indeed all of physical reality in
the universe is made of the bodies of a number of 7d beings.
A 7d being is a Light being. The form, tone and intensity of that Light depends on the being and Its choices.
At this final level you come to what might be quite a startling revelation. You come to see that there is no universe at all outside of you. There are
no “other” beings playing this game with you. There never were. It was all, always, just you. You discover that every other being that played
every single other role, that imagined every single other imagining and that did every single other thing that you hitherto had thought you did not
play, imagine or do… was really just another version of you. As you enter 8d you “remember” all your other incarnations, inventions, creations,
actions… all of it. And there is no-one and nothing that you cannot, at that moment, remember being and doing. You were and are ALL OF IT. And there
is not one little atom anywhere that you did not imagine into being, not one blazing star that you did not cause to shine. There is not one single
life that you did not live.
At 8d you are, in every possible sense, the whole universe. All of it bar nothing. You are IT!
And so… for 8d-you there is nothing to wonder about. Nothing to try to know. Nothing to try to understand. Nothing to do. Nothing to change. Nothing
to forgive. Nothing to heal. It all just IS. And it is all you.
Now what to do with information like THAT, huh?
Z: Now even my boggle is boggled! Wow, 8!
But you are right… what can one do with that info? For myself I have two different responses. First my heart leaps with joy. I absolutely love this.
I can’t get over how things that I have taken to be spiritual truths are coming together in this stuff you are now sharing with me. It is simply
astounding and very beautiful. It makes me happy to think that this is true. And that is great.
But then my head chimes in and say “no”. There are people here on earth getting up to some pretty funny stuff. And I don’t mean funny as in
humorous! And… well… I’m not sure I want to be them very much. You know?
8: I comprehend perfectly. But my dear friend, isn’t it then perfect? You don’t have to do any of those things or make any of those choices
because someone else is already taking care of that for you. You are free to get on with the life you want to live thanks to them.
Z: Yes, that’s true. We already covered that in the previous chapter when we spoke about judgement.
8: That’s right. But here now is an additional level of understanding. Not only are you released from the need to do these other things but, indeed,
when you are finally ready, after your long and winding journey all the way up through the dimensions, then you will finally arrive at the remembrance
that indeed it was all you. And in that remembrance will also come perfect comprehension. Not only did you do all of these things but you will, in
that moment, know exactly how it came to be that you did what you did. Perfect knowledge with perfect compassion will yield perfect bliss.
Z: Yes. I feel what you are saying in my heart. Thank you for that, 8.
So then… what does an 8d being DO. I mean what is it like to be a whole universe?
8: Everything. Nothing. It depends on your perspective. There is no real way to answer that question. An 8d being does “the universe”, in so much
as the universe needs any doing. Maybe a better answer is to say that It dreams. And you are Its dreams, all of you.
…and that is the end of the excerpt. I hope you found it interesting, or at the very least entertaining!
There is a good bit more available here on my website
in which 8 makes it clear that
we are all, ultimately One.
I found it to be a fascinating conversation and I am very pleased of the privilege of sharing it with you.
Now… would you like to discuss this with me?
