7 Aspects of the Enlightened Consciousness
Transitioning to the 5th-Dimensional Reality
As we transition from the 3rd through the 4th and into the 5th dimension, there is an increasing urgency to let go of the 3-D linear duality and to embrace the higher consciousness of oneness and unconditional love.
The better we embrace the 5th-dimentional realities and the evolution of consciousness, the easier the transition will be. The more we resist, the more uncomfortable it will be.
The following are 7 aspects, or attitudes, of higher consciousness that can help us through these times of great spiritual shift.
Gratitude is an attitude that hooks us up to our source of supply. -- Bob Proctor
The first aspect of the higher consciousness is Gratitude. An emotion of gratitude not only heals (see Louise Hay's "Heal Your Life"), it creates a state of calm receptivity so crucial for transitioning to a higher vibrational level.
You've heard it a million times: Life is a precious gift. But it's not enough to know it; you have to feel it. Cultivate the emotion of gratitude and there will be more to be grateful for. Become happy and happiness will become you.
What you focus your attention on increases, so if you focus on appreciating even the simplest things that bring you joy - like when the song you like comes on the radio or when you walk your dog on a warm fragrant night - that vibration of gratitude will attract more things that you can be grateful for.
Gratitude is a state of grace. No matter how down or angry you may be, making an effort to find something to appreciate about the situation will change your vibration. So be mindful of the blessings you receive every day - no matter how trivial they appear to be.
Honesty is the courage to be true to one's Higher Self.
Everyone deserves to live their life openly and honestly, without fear of ridicule, oppression or physical violence. If you feel you can't do that, what are the sources of fear and anxiety in your life?
Maybe it's the pressure to fit in, religious dogma or that family member who always criticizes your choices and tells you what to do. If someone can't support your true self because they live in a fear-based reality, you need to distance yourself from those sources. Lovingly wish them well, but don't subject yourself to the life of fear and deception.
Honesty is also about how you express yourself. Be open and state your opinion assertively, with no apologies or qualifiers ("I'm sorry but I think...", "It may sound stupid but...", "I sort of/kind of disagree with that", "I don't know/I'm not sure but...", "I know this is crazy but..."). Trust me, people respond better when you're assertive rather than insecure and apologetic, even if they don't like what they hear.
State your truth but never tell another person what he or she should do. They have their own path and their own inner compass to follow; and so do you. You can offer your opinion on what you would have done in the situation, but only they can know what is best for them.
Speak Your Truth
The time has come to remember who you are.
So much has been forgotten, intentionally or forcibly, so much is yet concealed, covered, distorted.
But the process has already begun and it cannot be reversed: people are remembering what they've been forced to forget, they are connecting with their soul groups, and together they are creating a global transformation of consciousness.
Your intention is the trigger. Allow yourself to remember, reclaim what's been stolen from you, it is safe to do so. Everything is moving towards revelation, there is no reason to hide anymore. Be aware, follow the signs, trust that the change is on the way.
Follow the Breadcrumbs
"When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty." -- Jesus Christ
The Temple of Apollo at Delphi, the city of the Delphi Oracle, was once thought to be the center of the Earth, and it remains a powerful archetype for the principle of Divine Self-Knowledge.
Attributed to Thales of Miletus, the words "ΓΝΩΘΙ ΣΑΥΤΟΝ" ( "know thyself") were inscribed across the portico of the Temple of Apollo.
"Know thyself" is a call to recognize your true nature and to act accordingly. As we navigate through these changing frequencies, we are constantly tested and challenged to seek out our true core Self, a.k.a. God, Goddess, or ALL THAT IS. Only through connecting with this core can we experience unconditional love, peace and true ego-less empowerment.
Strength is an inner power to withstand. It's a loving gentle way to state your truth and to defend your truth if needed, but in the spirit of kindness, not in the spirit of dominance and competition. Because true strength doesn't come from ego; it comes from God, Higher Power, ALL THAT IS.
Why do we need to be strong? Because there are dark forces here on Earth set up to destroy us from within: to make us blind, stupid, complacent and weak. They poison our food, our water and our air with chemicals to make our bodies sick, they poison our minds with nonsense and hate on TV, and although they cannot poison our spirit - our core God essence is incorruptible - they can blind us to it.
That is why we need to be strong and determined to awaken, to be ALL THAT IS, to be connected, to be the light that shines through the darkness.
Higher consciousness embodies Oneness, the connectedness of ALL THAT IS. It doesn't make distinctions between male and female, black and white, straight and gay, rich and poor etc. That is to say, it doesn't put one above the other. Instead, it sees value in all things and beings.
We are not meant to be the same, we are different - and these differences need to be acknowledged and celebrated, not bulldozed over for the sake of homogeneity.
Equality based on uniformity is not real; it still recognizes only one side and makes sure everyone adheres to the same standard. So on the surface, you can be anything you want to be, but in reality, those who fail to conform are called losers, slackers, misfits, loonies etc. Specifically, I'm talking about women.
For so many centuries women were made to feel inferior to men, and at some point this inferiority complex became part of our collective psyche. In Western countries it's less noticeable because the oppression has taken the form of societal pressure to present a physically attractive appearance and to adopt "masculine" values of dominance, aggression, competition, independence and non-emotionality.
You want to be a successful woman? You better cut off all your feminine "weaknesses" like diseased appendages, otherwise you'll be eaten alive. It's still a man's world out there, and we're reminded of it every day.
But in the third world countries (where most people live) women and girls still suffer horrific abuses. Eastern European sex trade, female mutilation in Africa, rape festivals in India, sex and marriage to underage girls as young as 7 in Afghanistan and other South Asian countries, domestic abuse that is not only legal but justified and accepted by both sexes, denial of basic rights and education, and the list goes on and on...
I can't stress enough how important gender equality is to the future of humanity. There cannot be salvation for any of us while so many women and girls are intimidated, raped and tortured on a daily basis.
If you are the one being abused, my heart aches for you. The damage that's been done to you - to all of us - is great, and men suffer it, too. Men are abused as children, and children often witness domestic violence at home. If a boy sees his father strike his mother, the boy is traumatized, too. In the best case scenario, he grows up to be a defender of women but he will still have deep trust issues; in the worst case scenario, he becomes a wife beater himself.
Permit the abuse no longer, especially if children are involved. Recognize your value. It is time to heal. IT IS TIME.
If you always focus on the negative, you can become overwhelmed and depressed, and that's no way to be. Hope keeps us inspired and motivated to move forward.
There is a new world burgeoning, a new reality. Not everyone is aware of it, and not everyone is prepared or willing to move forward, but the natural evolution of human consciousness cannot be stopped, it can only be stifled.
For thousands of years we were moving with a speed of a snail, but in the last few decades there's been a noticeable acceleration. More and more people awaken to spiritual reality through Eastern practices, availability of information through technology and increasing interconnectedness of the modern world.
The children being born today also seem to be more advanced mentally and psychically, even though they are still labeled with psychiatric disorders.
There is HOPE, and where there is hope, there is always love, and beauty, and integrity in being human. And don't forget about puppies hugging kittens - that's just too cute!
