How does the attitude of “Take me to my destination…I’ll buckle up and enjoy the ride,” sound?
Exciting? Scary? Or downright terrifying!?!?! 😱😱😱
Yet…for many of you…especially those on the ascension path of ‘higher consciousness’ for quite some time now (say, > 5 years)…quite literally feel like they are navigating life without an instruction manual and may be feeling a little uneasy.
The old ways of doing things simply don’t work…even things that did work when you first “awakened” to your infinite spiritual self don’t work as effectively either…and you feel a lesser need to connect with so many “gurus” or experts of a subject matter – but at the same time, feel oddly dependant on them as reassurance – almost like a safety blanket.
This is a phenomenon I am seeing more and more where many are finding themselves between this sense of stuckness and the precipice of great change. Like they have one foot in their old world, and the other in the new world, but cannot seem to fully transition into this new world…kind of like that moment you take the training wheels off your bike…but what this really is, is transforming from the spiritual apprentice, to one who fully claims their inner authority.
This has happened to me and several of my close friends/colleagues who are highly trained and talented visionaries, entrepreneurs, communicators, healers, artists, and truth warriors in their own right…where we have been mulling in this space for several years…and finally got to an even deeper surrender and getting comfortable with ‘not knowing’ and ‘playing with a blank canvas’ despite best practices or what the ‘experts’ say.
But why exactly is this happening? What are the mechanics behind this seemingly abstract concept I propose here that on one hand, sounds like spiritual fluff, but on the other hand, feels intuitively plausible?
Put simply…there is no instruction manual with higher consciousness as very few people on this planet exist in this state.
With higher consciousness, we MUST master a level of spiritual maturity where we MUST become our own inner spiritual authority.
(by the way, when I say ‘spiritual maturity’ – I don’t mean becoming a doormat or someone that never reacts anything…I am talking someone who has unleashed and totally OWNS who they are and knows how to embrace their gifts and navigates through all that life has to offer in an aligned and productive way!)
We can no longer depend on “gurus” or teachers to guide us (and this includes friends, spouses, parents, etc., whose opinions may heavily influence our choices), as this is the antithesis of the upper dimensional energies.
Let me explain the mechanics.
I’ve mentioned in previous posts and in my downloadable eBook, Understanding Consciousness – A Multidimensional Approach to Self-Mastery (subscribe on the right to receive your copy), that in my work, I determine your Soul Vibration Rate (SVR), which is a measure of your perceptual awareness.
Those with a 5th-dimensional SVR have a spiritual awareness of themselves beyond their thoughts and feelings. In the early stages (i.e. SVR: 5.0-5.2), people experience a sense of “awakening” and become curious about their divine nature and are drawn to themes of life and soul purpose and the deeper meaning of life.
5th dimensional consciousness is all about Information (and hence the phrase, the Information Age – which is 5th-dimensional in nature). As we progress through this phase, we find ourselves in constant cycles of attaining new and higher perspectives of life that has us constantly examining and questioning our belief systems, the way the world works, and always looking for new, innovative and efficient ways to reach our full potential and achieve our goals.
We seek masters, teachers, and experts, and we become insatiable consumers of information as we strive towards self-mastery that initially is luring and exciting!
I like to compare the progression through the 5th-dimensional SVR’s to the hero journey – because not only do we become mass consumers of information…we really do have to look deep within ourselves, those crusty dysfunctional patterns and shadow aspects that lurk deep within our psyche…in the pursuit of life meaning, fulfilment, and inner peace.
And those of you who have been on this journey for a while know exactly how heavy this can get!
However, as our SVR rate progresses to the mid to late 5’s (by this time, you have purged A LOT of deep, traumatic, heavy, emotional stuff…), we start tapping into 6th-dimensional consciousness energies…which is all about anchoring and embodying pure vibrational states and owning your spiritual authority.
In other words, you have to dump your old operating system and learn a new one…and this freaks A LOT of people out!
Old ways of doing things simply don’t work, no matter how “expert” those you follow might be. It becomes more about alignment and you HAVE to honour your uniqueness and trust your inner guidance system, no matter what the “experts” say. We all have a unique Soul blueprint, and we have to learn to honour its qualities. You have to become more mindful whom you interact with to help highlight these qualities rather than contradict them!
(By the way…I’m not saying ditch all expert advice! Customise it according to your goals and your unique perspective. We still need people to guide, teach and support us…the difference is that we aren’t dependant on them nor are we handing our power to them. You certainly don’t need to follow dozens of people on a daily basis to get your inspiration “hit” and you will naturally cull anyways.)
6th dimensional consciousness is the Age of Wisdom. This is spiritual maturity. And you have to be very aligned and living into the qualities of your Soul blueprint to a high degree (to the point of financial/life/health freedom) to progress to (and beyond) this point. And there are very few people on the planet operating at this state, therefore, there are very few people who can teach us how to “be” in this realm!
But sooo many are on the precipice of that leap, but keep scrambling for the instruction manual, because inherently…we have that inbuilt mechanism called the ego – that activates the flight/fight mechanism in times of ‘uncertainty’ that keeps us safe.
(Love your ego by the way. Many in personal and spiritual development give the ego a bad wrap…but it is essential to our evolution and there are strategies that you can implement to work productively with the ego during times of transition.)
Ultimately, it comes down to trust. Inner trust. No expert can teach you this. It’s surrendering to your Inner Union with the divine…which is hindered when ‘distractions’ in the form of seeking information for the need for ‘certainty’.
It takes courage, discipline and focus to live at higher SVR’s (especially from mid 5’s) and no amount of information gathering, healing, clearing work, or affirmations, etc. can help with this.
Unshakable faith, trusting your path and taking guided action is the only way.
At some point, you have to take off the training wheels and embrace your new reality…you are the innovators of the new earth!
