Last night I had a powerful experience—one that transformed a belief into a profound knowing.
Over the years, I had read and heard from numerous sources—especially those who speak about Ascension and the Fifth Dimension—about how we as human beings are so much more than we think we are–that we are, in actuality, magnificent, complex beings with powers far beyond what we can imagine. I’d always believed this, and to some extent, felt that I’d experientially grasped this truth.
I knew we only use about 10% of our brains and maybe 5% of our DNA—and that there must be some use for the rest of our brains and DNA we hadn’t tapped into yet. I had also experienced profound spiritual dimensions within myself that extend far beyond the body and mind, and I’d understood that these dimensions exist within all of us.
But, until last night, I had not directly experienced what is meant by the concept that we human beings are actually “magnificent” beings. I hadn’t fully grasped the magnitude or the profundity of this reality. It was all still simply an intellectual understanding or belief.
But as I was sitting quietly reading last night, I was about to experience this reality on a direct and conscious level. Rather suddenly, I became aware of a deep, quiet movement happening in my chest. This was a familiar sensation—I always know something is happening with my heart when this happens, that a new opening is about to occur—so I paid close attention.
It’s a somewhat uncomfortable feeling initially, like my heart is being pulled opened against some inherent resistance I have. Yet it is one of the most profoundly pleasant sensations, as well. And as always, tears began flowing, as I moved with the energy of opening a space within me that was wanting to open.
As I felt this energy beginning to move freely through my chest, I suddenly became aware of myself as a being that was quite a bit larger than my physical being—and I was, well…magnificent. This is the only word that keeps coming to me, although it is woefully inadequate to describe what I was experiencing.
I was aware of many multidimensional layers of myself, all flowing in tiny universes of their own, and all concurrently with each other. There was an immense lightness about my being—almost as if I were translucent, airy, filled with light and brilliant colors.
I was also aware that I possessed profound power—far beyond what we talk about in our general human state about “creating our own reality.” This power included the ability to create much more than my own personal reality.
And the love that was present in this experience! It was pervasive, everywhere around and within me, powerful and all-embracing. It was clear that this is what drives all of existence on this level of reality—wherever I was.
I became aware that I was with other beings like myself in this experience. We weren’t doing anything in particular together—just somehow casually communicating and sharing space. But it suddenly came very clear to me that all of us—every single human being on this planet—is a magnificent, multidimensional being just as I knew myself to be at that moment.
We are so much more than we think we are.
And with this realization, I found myself sobbing, experiencing a sense of profound grief for the whole human race, for what we have been through for so many thousands of years: It was so clear how our current experience of who we think we are is so limited, so constrained, so small and weak. Our little human bodies and minds—even with as much spiritual awareness as many of us have attained—are such a tiny part of who we all actually are.
I had been aware of the story many sources tell us about how we on earth were once fully aware of our full spiritual splendor, our direct connection to Source and our immense powers in many dimensions of our being. And how after the Fall of Atlantis and Lemuria, we all fell into a deep sense of separation from what we once knew ourselves to be–into a dark, dense state of consciousness, focused on duality and immense suffering. And how, for thousands of years, we have been locked into this tremendously limited state of awareness.
But, again, until last night, this was mostly an intellectual understanding of that story. Now, in this experience I was having, the memory of all of this surfaced within me, full and clear. And I felt profound grief for our immense loss heavy in my heart.
But this was soon replaced by enormous waves of joy that began flooding me, as I realized that this forgetfulness and feeling of being lost in a dense and limited world of duality was now coming to an end. My tears soon turned into deep laughter, as I felt my heart fully open to the love and joy flowing through me.
Awakening is Happening
I knew—and continue to know, even now that the poignancy of that experience has dissipated some with time—that we are indeed in profound times of transformation. Spiritual awakening is occurring for so many of us on the planet, at a speed that could almost be alarming if it weren’t so exciting. Of course, the correct term would be re-awakening, for it is a matter of remembering who are actually are, not waking up for the first time.
But it’s not a going back to another time in our history either. We are not regressing. We are moving ahead, leaping very quickly into a higher level of evolution. We are re-awakening to all of who we are, but we now have the experience of what it is to be caught in deep darkness and suffering for thousands of years. This has provided us with a profound wisdom we have attained the hard way—but we have attained it.
We’ve learned that with the gift of free will, we are capable of shutting ourselves down, forgetting who we are, forgetting our connection to Source—forgetting that we are, in actuality, God. And it is likely that we will never forget this profoundly difficult lesson.
Graduation time is approaching. Not everyone will be graduating, and that is their choice. They will move on to other worlds where the third dimension is still operating. But those of us moving along this ever-quickening path of ascension will be moving up into the fourth dimension very quickly—and then, within a matter of years, into the Fifth Dimension.
What joy to be alive at this time!
