Ascension Into Higher Dimensions: the Angelic Realms

Angels come in many forms, infinite in variety. Some may not be recognizable as anything that would be associated with the angelic realms. They may come as a certain kind of feeling, or as a fleeting thought. If you limit the possible forms they can inhabit, it is easy to miss them when they are with you. They may come as an almost imperceptible vibration of sound, or a subtle wisp of color that flashes in the mind. If you relegate them only to the archetypes that are familiar and “acceptable,” then most likely they are dismissed when they come as a delightful fragrance or gentle puff of wind upon the cheeks.

People wonder about “Ascension” and what it is like to experience the higher realms. An aspect of Ascension is the moment-to-moment consciousness of the expanded Self, which is the connection to the Angelic dimensions. If you are not aware of anything beyond the physical senses, it is because that is where most of the energy has been allowed to dwell. As you allow the awareness to “feel” on deeper and more subtle levels, you begin to understand that the physical plane is but one dimension of a vast and Infinite Consciousness. It requires a loosening up of the belief forms and feelings around the physical senses. It is a matter of feeling and sensing beyond and beneath for the subtle vibrations that are generally beyond reach of the physical instruments. Feel the vibrations of the colors that you “see.” Feel the sounds of the vibrations you “hear”…and so forth.

Ascension is already here. The Angels have always been with you. You are already connected to the higher realms. The mind that questions, “But I’m still dealing with feelings of lack and limitation,” that is just the mind doing what it has been programmed to do. It is an identity falsely assigned to a narrow spectrum of the Infinite Self. As you feel more deeply beneath the “dream” of limitation, the experience of ascension, the bliss consciousness,  will become more and more established in the day-to-day existence.

You are all “Angels” drinking in the subtleties of each moment. The dimensional shift happens from moment to moment and it is not so much a transformation of consciousness as it is a remembrance of who you are and what you have always been: Infinite Spirit that has allowed itself to be lost for awhile in the worldly dream.

Listening to the Voice of the Heart

Listening to the voice of the heart is about attuning ourselves to subtle vibrations and feelings, learning to listen not only with the ears but with our whole Being; with our bones, organs and every fiber. In this kind of listening lies the answer to prayers and the fulfillment of all of our intentions.

Answers and resources can appear from seemingly nowhere. The Universe doesn’t need to work in linear, logical ways. When you connect with intentions on an energetic level, then answers to prayers can appear from “out of the blue.” You must still do your part, but there really is no challenge that is insurmountable.

Your part is to remain in the openness and receptivity of the inner flow of energy and consciousness that is always connected with the Creative Source. This may mean sometimes having to take little steps without the assurance of knowing the details of the larger picture. Sometimes it may seem that you are only given pieces of a jigsaw puzzle without the benefit of knowing what the finished piece looks like. Trust in the wisdom of your heart that will let you know if you are on course or off-course when you learn to feel and listen to the vibration of its voice.

As you listen and feel on the inside, the consciousness becomes aware of the physical vibrations within and around you. As the mind and feelings grow calm, the awareness begins to apprehend more and more subtle vibrations of thoughts, feeling and movements of energy within the body. The inner sounds become more predominant and external noises may seem to meld with the internal ones. A sense of expansion occurs in which the feeling of bodily location is widened, as though the limbs have become very large, or have dissolved all together into the vastness of space.

In the Sacred Space wherein the mind and body are deeply relaxed, intrusive thoughts and the process of thinking have less opportunity to be entertained. There is no small place in the mind to let them revolve around in. They just come; and then they go. They are observed as though from a great distance, without attachment, without the usual emotional strings that keep us bouncing around like puppets on a marionettes’ stage.

In the vibration of your Heart’s Voice, the incessant chattering of mind falls away, allowing for the magnetic energy of Love to manifest and fulfill your intentions and prayers. In this sublime state, you can be in any company or crowd and send out the attracting vibration to embrace all people as beautiful souls. Those whose hearts are ready to receive will begin to resonate with and gravitate to you. When you become the frequency of Love, that vibration will change the hearts of those stuck in self-created darkness. In this way individuals learn to be a blessing to those around them without expectation of return or acknowledgment.

2009 and Messages from an Injured Shoulder

2009 seems to be building up to be a humdinger of a year! If one were to look only outwardly at the trainwreck of events as reported by the media, from the world economic crisis to the ongoing escalation of wars and violence, it would seem that 2009 augers a buildup of fear and thoughts of “how to survive the coming cataclysms.”

However, when looking upon all the chaos as the Universe’s way of destroying old and corrupt systems so as to make room for evolution to happen, then it becomes a matter of making choices as to how we want to live our lives: reacting to fear by “hunkering down,” or using the energy or excitement of fear to build momentum and awareness of the New Dimension of Consciousness that seems to be arising through the ashes of what is being torn down.

I don’t have a special “window” to the future, and I do know that pain and challenges are part of living on planet earth, and so my wife and I do our “due diligence” by keeping emergency supplies and some extra food and water…but we also know “in our bones” that our very purpose of existence is the simple awareness and act of “Being Love,” no matter how well or badly we may do from moment to moment. And there are times of course… when we get off course. It’s part of the drama that we’re learning to live with and not get so caught up in.

2009, for me, is not so much about “doing” as it is in “Being.” Both are important, but a little physical challenge that has shown up in my life in the last couple of months has won my attention and deep consideration. My left shoulder went out. Can’t use it. It happened right after an intense workshop that I participated in. Everything I do now has to be done slowly and with great awareness.

I’ve been seeing doctors but the healing may take awhile. My shoulder seems to be saying:

“Back off for awhile! Can you receive this and experience the opportunity that comes even with the pain? Listen and receive without grasping or fretting, without worrying about the future!”

The mind naturally thinks, “I need my shoulder to do my work and to be of service.” But of course the Higher Self is saying, “Just do your best and then relax in each moment, even if the moment is painful. Know that you are supported and guided even when it seems most dark and confusing.”

Accessing the River of Creativity – Calm Awareness

Creativity as spoken about in the following dialog with Higher Self is about allowing a space within ourselves to let energy flow unimpeded. Creating everyday may be a matter of just getting up and going for a walk around the block or around the park, feeling the energy in our bodies move and connect harmoniously with the environment; feeling ourselves as part of the Creative Ocean expressing through our walk.

Creativity may also be about moving through the workplace with calm awareness, noticing the feelings and thoughts as they arise, not losing ourselves in any drama that may play out during the day. It is about staying in that place of clarity or Presence wherein the Consciousness enjoys itself in the fullness of the moment.

You are never far from the Source of Inspiration that can radically change your circumstances for the better. Allow it to do its work. Create everyday! The momentum of energy and mind can propel you towards dimensions of discovery and learning that will take your breath away!

Relax and breathe deeply into the vision
you hold within. It’s not enough to just stay in shallow waters. Go deep, plumb the depths of what is there for you in the most subtle regions of consciousness. If you find yourself out of the flow of awareness, it’s just a matter of dropping back into the movement of the energetic river. Listen on the inside, relax and then once again observe quietly, without grasping or forcing. Do not fight or force! Relax and observe. Feel the resonance of all that plays within and around you.

Move gracefully, as the vibratory Being
that you are. Enter into the flow of what is already moving and that is connected with the Creative Source. Listen, be aware and allow. You will then slip gently into sublime levels of awareness.

Awaken from moment to moment. As you melt into the Cosmic Stream, the awareness of Self expands to include all things. Feel now what wishes to express from the deepest Source. The Breath of Creativity is an Ocean of wonder that has no limitation. Its waves expand in all directions, forever moving and creating. Your true home is in this Ocean. Make use of the gifts you were meant to express and manifest. There is no aspect of Creation you cannot explore. As the Ocean meets Sky upon the horizon, so will your Heart meet Omnipresence upon the horizon line of calm awareness!

Surviving the Meltdown – Conspiracy of Time

Global catastrophes, economic meltdowns, health pandemics, World War III, etc., etc. are ominous threats that seem to loom just on the horizon, all adding to the dreaded fear that many people feel so very closely at this time. Surviving the meltdown is part of the zeitgeist of this particular era as we move closer to 2012 (as can be witnessed by the many websites and books that address this topic of survival). And yet there is also a feeling held by a growing number of individuals throughout the world that much of the upheaval is part of the birthing process of a New Consciousness, a frequency shift in our evolution as Co-Creators moving towards higher dimensions of Being.

The following post with Higher Self addresses the “Zeitgeist,” or spirit of the times. It also speaks of the dream nature of time itself.

Changes are happening quickly on the macro as well as the micro levels. Old belief systems that no longer serve you, both spiritual and secular, are crumbling–as they must–in order for the souls living during this time to progress beyond the hypnotic spell cast upon humanity asleep in the illusions of time and caught in the narrow dimensions of ego identity.

As fearful egos lost in the maelstrom of time, there seems to be no end to the ongoing nightmare of suffering, and yet a Great Awakening is upon the world as individuals begin to shake in resonance with the Divine Song that calls all souls to awaken to and remember their unique gifts of Love. Souls are casting aside as never before the shackles and straightjackets of narrow bigotry fostered through the generations by hearts corrupted by greed and soulless attachments to power and money.

Those who choose to remain asleep, who will not release attachments to the nightmare will remain in that realm of dark struggle until they are ready to move forward.

The you of worldly dimension lives in the realm where time is so powerful that it induces ways of thinking and acting in the world that is limiting and constraining. As you begin to live more and more naturally in the consciousness of Now, you will come to experience the world of time as just one dimension of your existence within the infinitely wider sphere of the Higher Self, beyond time and physical constraints.

Move and dance, write and draw; going from word to word, movement to movement, feeling to feeling without stopping the flow of awareness. As you lessen your desire to tightly control and mentally edit, the awareness will expand and merge into the vast backdrop of your True Nature. In this dimension of Being, there is no grappling or fighting with Self. It is all part of the larger “Dance of Creation.” It is all part of the Divine Song of the Cosmic River that flows effortlessly towards the Ocean of Freedom!

Enjoy and allow yourselves to remain in this state for as long as you wish. There is then no stopping the flow of what wishes to express. Stay in this place of deep wonderment and mystery, expanding and allowing the awareness to merge with the creative energy that swirls within and all around you.

No matter what you do in the world, the call of your Soul will ever beckon you to walk in alignment with your Authentic Self, which is a unique expression of the gifts you were born to express in Life.

The world of time exists in a consciousness that is fragmented and narrow. It supposes limitation and linear movement of energy and constraints of cause and effect. The body and consciousness appear to be confined solely to this plane of existence only when the awareness has bought completely into its illusion and attaches to it as being the only “reality.” When the Soul begins to awaken even a little, the consciousness begins to understand its Self within a wider spectrum of “realities” that include and yet is not limited by narrow constraints of time and space. It is then able to act and respond to certain “crises” in the worldly arena without succumbing to the fears and very “real” events that take place with regularity on the earthly plane.

There are so many levels to the worldly dream…the narrow identity to body and place in time is but a dream dimension that is ongoing and repetitive. Caught in the energy loop of the recurring nightmare of suffering, this is the entanglement that the billions of souls struggle with on this particular planet. And yet the entanglement is not a web made from steel. They are, rather, made from the gossamer strands of belief forms humankind has clung to through countless generations: “fight or be killed; win at all costs; amass a fortune to be happy; only the strong survive…” And the structures of fear built around these beliefs continue to condemn humanity to ones of violence and wars.

And yet, is there true safety in the world? The body will pass on sooner or later, as it must, in order for the soul to learn the many lessons offered in the dimensions of time and space. However, the observable world of disease, suffering, wars and death also contains the experiences of Love, joy, happiness and peace. The world may be shaking with violence and wars, and yet the choice to live in the dimension of Love is the true shelter. Its power is not less strong than the barbs of anger and bigotry; of missiles and bombs. It is just that humanity as a whole has not learned to harness its powers as an answer to the recurring nightmare of wars.

Enter the Great Stillness, the Great Love, and feel the vibrations within. The Cosmic Music plays on and on, in ever-changing beauty and grace. From moment to moment, the energy moves to express and create. If you allow yourselves to calmly observe and to deeply feel, the energy gathers momentum and power as there will be no constriction or tightness around it. It will be like waking up from a deep sleep, sloughing off the dusty veils that have kept the mind in one place and in one way of thinking. The environment then takes on a clarity and brightness, as though lit from within by a gentle light of protection.

Your Life’s Song – Riding the Wave to Freedom!

 

All things have the vibration of song. Melt into the creative stream that flows to the ocean where the symphony of all sounds merge. Your worries and thoughts of limitation are part of the dream that you can awaken from when you choose to receive the vibration of your Life’s Song. There is only the moment, and hidden within the moment is the power of your song that can shatter the phantoms of the nightmare.

Your dream of limitation and worry can be instantly changed when you choose to awaken. Does it seem too simple that we ask you to live only in the moment? Through habit the mind seems to have been hardwired to stay within the narrow band of “reality” that it has grown comfortable with, and anything beyond this zone it cannot or will not venture. And yet there are dimensions far beyond what you can now imagine.

The reality you now find yourself locked into is narrow and enduring because it is what the mind has come to accept and allow. It has settled for a small corner of the infinite Universe. There is so much more that can be explored. It is just a matter of shifting consciousness to the awareness of Now; and in the consciousness of Now, there is no attachment to past and future, no attachment to worries and fears. There is only the awareness of what is. It is a deep letting go, a deep relaxation of all attachments to mind and mind stuff. The moment allows space for a wider experience of all that is.

Using Sound and Vocal Harmonics

Until you relax the tentacles of mind that holds your reality in constant form, it is difficult to experience the consciousness beyond the veils of the world. Continue to use sound and vocal harmonics to shake the foundations of the limited corner you now find yourself locked within. Consciousness is powerful enough to not only keep the Universe in form but it can also reshape and reorder all things. Continue to use the vibration of vocal harmonics to enter the deepest states of awareness.

Explore the depths of this very moment! It contains the power of all creation! There is no other place to experience what you seek. It is all within you this very moment. Nothing can be added or taken away. Use the vibration of your Life’s Song to explore dimensions now hidden behind the hard shell of dense beliefs that the world has imposed upon you for incarnations! Ride upon the wave of harmonics to plumb the depths of your Souls’ longing for freedom!
