In the 3rd dimension, the universe responds to what you think. In the 4th dimension, the universe responds to how you feel. In the 5th dimension, the universe responds to what you say and act out. To work on trying to change your thoughts and feelings keeps you spiraling in the 3rd and 4th dimension. Yet, when you bring greater consciousness to your words and actions, no matter how you think or feel -- your thoughts and feelings spontaneously change on their own. This is the heart of conscious action.
Coming across Matt Kahn's clarifying quote inspired this blog post. I've been remarking, lately, on multi-dimensional work and how it's the thing we're doing these days, more and more. It's time for us to open to these levels of being for powerful personal transformations, happier lives and a better world. But keeping track of the dimensions and how we interact in them is new for most of us. If someone asked you, "hey what's the difference between the 4th and 5th dimension?" what would you say, off the top of your head? Matt's quote helps clarify, and elucidate why, these days, I'm practicing fifth-dimensional beingness more and more. I think it might be news you too can use.
Do you feel—like me—yourself "spiraling in the 3rd and 4th dimension[s?]" Working with your thoughts and feelings, re-patterning, changing personal narratives, inner critic voices, old fears, lingering unresolved feelings, releasing cellular memory, DNA-held trauma, past life vows and stuff?Practicing when you catch yourself doing the old conditioning instead of the new stuff? It can feel like work, and like homework, like studying for a test. Going over thought patterns and memories and storylines feels like it happens in your head, and it can feel like work. People suggest making lists: gratitude lists, old stuff you're going to jettison lists, stuff you're asking the Universe to co-create with you, goals and affirmations, on and on. While naming can be a powerful component in transformational work, to be sure, it doesn't feel, well, fifth dimensional.
Experiential knowledge is fifth dimensional transformation in a nutshell. Something happens, you feel it, you and everything around you shifts, and wow, felt that! It's often inexplicable but usually undeniable. These experiences are what Matt Kahn refers to as "bringing greater consciousness to your words and actions" and that phrase needs a little unpacking. What do you think of when you see the word consciousness? We can intellectualize it as thinking, think of it as an intellectual process. Yeah, I did that on purpose. But actually, not so much. Consciousness is what we are, and when we are in a state of conscious awareness, we feel that as knowing and being. But not as a feeling, like, oh, say, the feeling of being pissed off. When we feel our conscious awareness we are in knowing and we feel our knowing. We feel, experientially, the truth of being. And that state of consciousness changes everything within and around us.
It also feels really good, as you probably know from having experienced a conscious moment or two sometime in your personal history. I'm tuning into rocking the fifth-dimensional me more and more as the experiential path to conscious action. As the way to be. The more you open to multi-dimensionality and practice recognizing the way you interact in 3D, 4D, and 5D, and how you feel (your frequency if you will), you increase awareness of what shifts and how things happen around your state of consciousness. It gets easier and easier to switch channels, to use proprioceptive language. And it's fun. The fifth dimension is fun. And it's a great place to get shit done.
Shamanic experiences are very fifth-dimensional. The experiential knowledge accessed and gained from shamanic work is definitely conscious action, healing, transformative and connective. It's not just the practitioner who transforms and shapeshifts across time and space. The energy wrangling of a shamanic session is all about going multi-dimensional in an experiential connectivity that bridges and shifts things intentionally for the soul's well-being. These days, as we open to our powers and abilities, it's not all about fixing, being fixed, getting over, making it happen. This multi-dimensional conscious action is new, or being remembered from long ago in a galaxy far far away. It's using the force, and yep, awakening the force. It's about learning, doing some Yoda time, and becoming aware of our multi-dimensional selves. Practicing and getting good at shifting. It doesn't have to feel like work, or study, or dredging through past harm and bewilderment. It can be fun and feel fantastic, sentient and magical, mindblowing, and clarifying, all at once. Ready?
