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.

Creativity – Holding the Vision of What You Want

Hold the vision of what you want and feel the energy of its creation. Understand that what is felt with powerful focus will be created. This is the Law. Breathe in Beauty! Bask and luxuriate in the blissful resonance of the energetic field being created within and all around. With intention and focus, vibrate your vision into the realm of creation. Draw, write, sing and dance all beautiful dreams into manifestation! You are so close! Understand that what you have sought for lifetimes is already with you. It is just a matter of opening up to the gifts that have been yours since the beginning.

The energy is strong and creativity flows easily and smoothly whilst relaxing into the blissful field. Love is calling you to plumb the depths. Observe, relax and release! The “You” of name and human form will be experienced dispassionately as a wave of Spirit, connected with the Cosmic Ocean. Each breath will then be a constant reminder, an eternal pulsation of the Infinite Connection. Breathe deeply and feel! It will be as though you have awakened from a deep sleep and all things will seem different and yet familiar.

Spirit is awakening and expressing through the body. It is spreading its wings of light through every nerve and cell. That energy is blissful, overwhelmingly powerful as it moves wave after wave through the body. Allow it to dance and express. Bask in the delectable moment that is Infinite Beauty and Joy! And then go deeper still. This is your work! Take care of your responsibilities, but understand that your main focus and work is with Spirit. Expansion of the heart will then happen naturally as you relax and allow the powerful Spirit to move within.

Beauty is unfolding and spreading its wings of light. Receive that you have the power and understanding to manage the ebb and flow of its Divine Song!

Creativity – a Frequency of Love

Immerse yourself in the waters of Creativity that flows smoothly and powerfully. There is no stopping the river! It flows eternally and effortlessly. Once you step into the realms of deep mystery, the energy and resonance of its song will carry you along on its currents. Just write quickly, without stopping to question whether or not what is expressed is good or bad. Do not hold back in your creativity. The idea is to get the momentum going and then step aside to allow the Higher Self to express freely. In this way, Beauty is unleashed to reveal its secrets through your writings and drawings. It is a way to bypass the mind that wishes to evaluate and judge everything before giving voice or expression.

Allow, relax and then open up to deeper and deeper levels of Spirit. There is then no stopping the flow of this beautiful river, no boundary to your creative endeavors. Go deep quickly and express freely without fear or limitation. The field of Love then expands in all directions.

The heart speaks and communicates through the language of intuition. As you gaze across the landscape of your feelings, you receive impulses regarding any question or desire you may have. Listen to and feel deeply for the answers that well up in the energetic field that you are immersed in. Feel the finest vibrations of the subtle voice. You are a Creator, a vast field of Consciousness that is connected to Source Energy.

Understand that the vibratory field of the body is infinite and connected seamlessly with all Creation. The belief of the body as limited and separate is a play of Spirit enjoying itself through the countless creations that it has given life and individuality to. We have forgotten our eternal connection with the Divine and dream that we are limited beings stuck upon a world that requires struggle and fight for survival.

Spirit is asking for a release of the tight grasp that you have upon the narrow vibratory realm of the three dimensional world. The heart is calling for the letting go of the rigid bundle of beliefs that you hold onto regarding what is possible. Step now into the wider home of omnipresence and offer into the fires of wisdom all stories of limitation!

What amazing dimensions can be explored and enjoyed! Feel, relax, breathe in deeply the energies of Spirit. You have access to all dimensions and can learn from the Masters of all realms. As you tap into the resonance of Being, you can dive into any ocean of the Infinite. What sacred mystery do you wish to explore? What frequency of Love do you wish to experience?

Exercise in Mindfulness – Dimensions in Stillness and Subtlety

For those of you who have gotten your arses kicked and dragged up and down Life’s thoroughfares (probably all of you, to one degree or another), the following post is Higher Self’s response to questions about learning how to deal with the mind that gets so caught up in distractions and habits of fears and doubts. This post speaks to issues of mindfulness along with some exercises that help to develop sensitivity to and awareness of subtlety and stillness.

Our shaking you up is never meant to frighten or harm you. On the contrary, we only wish to awaken you to your own power and light. The deeper your slumber, the harder we sometimes need to shake. The energy patterns of your consciousness have ossified into certain ways of thinking and believing that have become narrow and limiting. We are here to help change the patterns of thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve you. Please understand that there are other dimensions of consciousness that are far more in line with the gifts and talents you are meant to express in life. We want to awaken you once and for all time!

The momentum of your thoughts have been going down certain pathways for so long that it is difficult for you to switch tracks, or to rather do away with the limitations of tracks altogether. Learn to release the patterns of thinking that push you down alleys of narrowness. Break out of the straight jacket of small thinking! Awaken now and breathe in your own power. Believe in and receive the gifts of Freedom! If you continue seeking in narrow avenues of what you believe is required for survival in the world, then you cut yourself off from the infinite resources and powers that are available. Stop force-fitting yourself into work that does not make use of your gifts and that only perpetuates the nightmare of separation and delusion.

Ok, Ok, I know I’m to make use of my strengths and talents, to create from the depths of my soul! The challenge is in not getting stuck, in moving forward while being receptive to the voice of Spirit. But once again, I seem to fall back into patterns of doing work that serves only the task of helping to pay the bills but which do not serve the wider purpose of expanding beyond the small shell of limited thinking…I want to express the gifts of the heart that wish to be given birth in the world! What is going on with this? I’m listening and creating, but somehow I’m not getting the message clearly about manifesting.

The answers are with you now in the very environment. You are getting in your own way! The logical mind wants to continue making sense of the world. This is fine and necessary to a certain degree, but you can also allow it to rest as you become aware of the more subtle layers of consciousness that can bring forth the very atoms of creation to manifest for you! You won’t lose your mind or balance!

Listen and feel for what is behind the thoughts. There is so much that is there, but it gets lost in the busy-ness of mental thought forms and “chatter” that dictate how you are to act, think and survive in the world. Don’t get sidetracked or distracted while partaking in the dance of “making a living.” So much more is available in the realms of Consciousness. There is unimaginable power in calm awareness! Allow yourself access to this energy and just watch how quickly circumstances change!

As your body and thoughts slow down, and as you continue to just observe the rise and fall of the breath, a wider experience of your Self comes into the awareness, a Self that is unencumbered by the restraints of time and bodily limitations. In the consciousness of Self, the wider perspective allows for a broader sense of the energy field that you are. The energy does not get stuck or stagnant and can be used to propel your intentions and dreams forward.

Allow yourself to experience the fullness of breath and the vastness of a consciousness that is not limited or attached to one place or object of thought. Wherever you are, just observe the thoughts with eyes closed or open; it does not matter. Calmly allow them to be released without attaching yourself or creating further “stories” around them. Feel the vastness of a consciousness that is calm and at peace.

Calm awareness is not a state of mindlessness; and neither is it a state of boredom. It is, rather, a state of absorption in the field of mindfulness that is connected intimately with the consciousness of the Great Spirit, beyond the narrow perceptions and distractions of bodily attachments.

Sit quietly and observe. Feel the vibrations of thoughts and feelings as they play across the screen of awareness. Take note of how thoughts come and go and allow them to do so without struggling or fighting to keep them at bay. Feel the backdrop of consciousness wherein thoughts seem to rise and fall. In apprehending subtlety, intimations of the Eternal Observer can be felt!

The above exercise in mindfulness is a play of stillness, a dance of the most subtle awareness, wherein you, the observer, begin to apprehend the Grand Observer behind the curtain of consciousness. It is a wide embrace of the cosmic identity that holds the entire Universe in its folds of Divine Love!

Manifesting Abundance through the Magnet of the Heart

In this post, Higher Self speaks of holding to the path we were “born to travel,” and to release blind attachments to the beliefs we have regarding what we think is required for survival on this planet. Higher Self also speaks about manifesting abundance through the magnet of the heart, through the simple awareness of Presence.

Again and again we ask you to create. Do not get sidetracked. Hold to the path you were born to travel. You are a creator! Continue to write, paint, play music and sing. Help yourself to the treasures that are in abundance and call upon the consciousness of trees, sky, stars and crystals to help you every step of the way.

Do not make life into a problem of survival. Widen your mental and spiritual eyes to embrace the vast universe of infinite creation. If your experience has been one of lack and want, it is because you have settled for the small waterhole that everyone else is fighting for. Limit not your vision and imagination to the small plot of land you have grown accustomed to. Consider the world as a doorway in which infinite creative energies abound. Learn to think, feel and move in ways that will help you to live in the wider sky of divine awareness!

The world you see is a narrow band of consciousness that is but a tiny island of your true existence. You are infinitely more than the tale of struggle that you have written for yourself. The story of humanity for the most part has been one of fight and struggle because that is the ongoing dream nightmare continuously fed by the scalding waters of sorrow and the torturous barbs of human suffering.

Let this chapter of life be about learning how to see what others are unwilling to see, to hear and experience the expanse of powers that can only be intuited by deep openness and inner listening. Unloose yourself to creativity and explore horizons beyond what is familiar and “safe.” Move in the light beams of consciousness to experience places of unimaginable beauty and power; and through your explorations help others to connect with the vibratory realms of unspeakable joy and abundance.

It is time to drop attachments to what you believe the world is. The belief that you must work within a given set of worldly parameters in order to pay the bills requires a certain “monetary mindset” which can also be defined as time and life energy. Whatever way that money is defined, it seems to be the predominant currency for survival in the world. How much of this life energy or currency are you expending to maintain your present life situation?

Understand the dream nature of this dimension you believe yourself a prisoner of. Dissolve the dream by letting go of past and future. Bring all of yourself to the simple awareness of Presence, without judgment, without attachment to thought. In this awareness there is no fight about how you would like things to be, about limitations and the human condition. From this place of clarity, you experience all things as a play and drama being dreamt by the Universe. From this place of consciousness, you live, act, sleep and dream without holding onto the suffering inherent in dream attachment.

Your relationships to the body and the world changes as thoughts of the past and uncertainties of the future fall away. The body is but an instrument to help you experience a particular dimension of the Universal Consciousness. It is a narrow dimension to those attached to strong belief systems of what they believe the world to be. To those who are awakening, the body becomes a portal to other dimensions of finer energies where beings and creatures of incredible beauty and power reside!

You are not a prisoner of your body and all of its needs! Just breathe and observe the energies that play and dance within. You have powers and energies that can explode you out of the present mindset of lack and limitation. In the simple awareness of Presence, your body and environment draws to you the very things you now only wish for. With simple awareness, the heart is charged like a magnet to attract the things you need and desire. Manifesting abundance then becomes a matter of fine-tuning the heart, magnetizing it through focus upon the unfolding moment. With awareness, the sense of “I-ness” expands to include the environment and all creatures. You become a force of Nature, a part of the universal current of Creation where the consciousness of time and space expands into the fullness of Presence!
