Have you maybe noticed lately how you’re losing interest in the 3D world around you?
Especially how the political events just don’t grab you so much anymore, and the old irritations and hopes about them just aren’t so pronounced as they once were?
Maybe, also, the physical world and all the people you see on the street and in stores don’t quite look or feel the same to you. You can’t quite put your finger on it, but they’re harder to relate to somehow. It’s almost as if they’re living in a different world from you. You’re interacting with them like always, but they’re somehow in a parallel existence to the one you’re now living in.
Your Old Identity is Disappearing
And maybe, to compound this strangeness, the events in your own life that were once so important and time-consuming just don’t pull at you so much anymore, either.
Perhaps there’s nothing replacing these old interests at this point, but somehow, your enthusiasm for them is just gone. And so many of the people you used to want to spend time with are now kind of boring to be around. They seem to be traveling down a different path in life from you now.
In fact, your old familiar sense of identity seems to be disappearing – those ways you would have described yourself in the past: your interests, your beliefs, your relationships, the things you spent time on, the things you were good at, what you liked and disliked, even your spiritual mission. Everything familiar about you is kind of up in the air now – but somehow, it doesn’t matter very much.
Something has definitely shifted in your life and in your awareness, but you can’t quite name or describe it. Somehow, reality itself is different – and you yourself are different.
You might try to explain in what ways, but the words don’t quite describe the sensations and the awarenesses you’re having.
Could it be that you have somehow just slipped into a new reality – and you now have a new identity – and you just haven’t realized it?
Maybe you’re not in this new reality all the time, but you do seem to slip into it at times, without quite noticing what’s happened?
The New Reality
Perhaps if you were to try to describe this new reality, the word “empty” might come up. But not in a bad way. Just clear, new, kind of pristine, without a lot of clutter.
And maybe “peaceful”. There’s not much noise or annoying movement happening, just a quiet kind of newness and clarity. Energetically, everything is somehow quieter, without so much static in the air. There’s a timelessness you feel bathed in.
Situations in your life may not be as you’d prefer them to be, but you realize that everything really is okay.
And beauty definitely stands out, even in the smallest ways, everywhere you look. Everything seems to have a presence, a type of intelligence with it. Even objects sometimes look alive. Everything seems to exist in a type of perfect and natural alignment.
Especially in nature! The plants and animals are alive in ways you’ve never noticed before. It’s as if magic and miracles are constantly happening everywhere within the natural world.
You feel a sense of wonder as you glance around at the trees, the plants, the streams, the rocks – and hear all the animals and insects communicating with each other. Joy bursts open in you.
And – what’s happened to the attention you used to have on all those things that were happening out in the world? Well, they’re probably still going on. And, out of curiosity, maybe you still kind of check in on them from time to time. It would be great if positive things were finally happening.
But all the chaotic events and situations in the world feel far away now and not as important to you anymore. They’ll probably work themselves out somehow. This new reality you’re in is much more engaging.
Your New Identity
But maybe what’s really different when you become aware of this new reality is that when you’re here, you are very different.
That old identity you used to carry around of things you did, who you were to other people, and what really grabbed your interest, is something you can’t relate much to anymore.
When you find yourself in this new reality and you feel into who you are, there’s a much more ethereal quality to you. For the most part, you’re still a someone, an individual entity that has a physical body, a mind and emotions – but those are kind of ephemeral now. They float around in something much larger, an energetic type of Presence that is now much more who you are. You might call this the Soul or your Multidimensional Self. Perhaps it feels like a field of Light or Love. At times, you realize you are actually vast spaciousness.
You are still thinking, but thoughts feel lighter, and there definitely are not as many of them as there used to be – and they are not the kind that constantly assail you. You still feel emotions, but they too are less heavy and substantial. You somehow feel happier, freer, lighter, often for no reason at all.
The other heavier emotions still occasionally come present, but they’re somehow not such a part of you as they used to be. You’re aware that they, like your thoughts, come and go — all within this clear space of Presence that is you.
And perhaps your body is still feeling the same aches and pains and ailments you were feeling in the other reality, but somehow your attention is not on them so much anymore.
Any fears you used to have about being sick or getting old are probably still within you somehow, but they’ve receded into the background. If something serious does happen to your body, you know you’ll somehow be guided to do what is necessary, and all will be well.
Are You in 5D?
So, is this 5D? When you become aware of such a different experience of yourself and the world you’re in, have you shifted into the Fifth Dimension?
Who knows? And does it even matter, really, how you define this experience?
When you’re still laboring your way through your life in the old reality, it might be important to name dimensions and realities in ways that can make life feel more hopeful. But when you experience what has recently been happening to you, definitions aren’t so important anymore.
Simply marveling, with joy and gratitude, seems to be enough. And the knowing that you can now begin to create a new life for yourself in this new reality you are more and more stepping into. You realize there are no rules or real directions for how to do this – these need to come from within you, as your own personal instructions begin to reveal themselves to you.
And, although you’re excited and maybe somewhat impatient to start really moving into your new life, you know you can just relax and enjoy the journey, trusting all will reveal itself in right timing.
Not Feeling Any of This Very Much?
Now, maybe you don’t experience what’s described here very often — maybe just slightly or just once in a while. You’re still dealing with really challenging situations and heart-breaking traumas that crash into your life from time to time.
Well, that’s to be expected; the old reality is still playing out and collapsing both within and outside of you. It’s on its way out now, and it’s taking everything that’s of a lower frequency with it. And this can cause, for a short time, great pain and discomfort.
But the good news is that this new reality is also here now — it’s available to you, and it’s flooding more and more into the old reality. You just need to be still for a moment and search energetically for it — and you’ll feel it. You’ll sense the lightness, the clarity, the freedom within it, and it will make you smile. And then you can just…slip into it and you’re there!
Becoming More Aware
And there are certain things you can do to become more aware of this new you that is being birthed. You can learn how to pay greater attention to how your perception and experience of yourself have altered – and feel the great joy and sense of freedom this gives you.
In my newest podcast, called “Experiencing Yourself as a Soul”, I offer some suggestions and a guided meditation that might be helpful in learning to do this.
