|This article will hopefully clarify some
of the pitfalls we face along the path on our way to mastering the fourth
dimensional principles of creative thought, imagination, karma and time.
The fourth dimension is our cosmic 'scratch pad' for learning to be co-creators with God. The Universe gave us an entire dimension in which to try out our ability to create.
In order to fully understand the realms of creation, we were given the ability to immerse ourselves in those realms. That means that instead of remembering that these worlds are merely a painter's canvas upon which to draw our thoughts and ideas, we began to believe these worlds were the totality of our being.
|It was easy to get trapped in the 3D world
of bodies, with their instincts, sexual appetites, focus on survival,
Yet, getting free of that is easy compared to the traps of the mind. So let's review the aspects of this vast mental realm; the training place for gods-to-be.
|That which is commonly called the fourth
dimension is actually broken down into the following sub-planes: The lower
astral, the middle astral, the upper astral, the mental, the etheric and
the causal planes.
The lower astral is a repository of our densest thoughts and creations. This is where we find fragments of ourselves that were split off in anger, rage, terror and grief. This is the 'hell' referred to in religious writings.
Anything we focus on intensely becomes a thought form and takes on a life of its own. That is because we are creators and what we put on the canvas of our minds becomes real within the realm in which it was created.
|This force can take on a shape and appearance,
and can move and interact with other thought forms. Negative astral entities
are fragments of souls that have been disowned and hurled into the depths
of the netherworlds or purgatory, other names for the lower astral plane.
The primary fragments of these souls may be human beings living in the outer 3D world without the knowledge that parts of themselves remain trapped in this world of mind and imagination.
For example; I have visited on many occasions the middle astral city of San Francisco. It looks very similar to the physical city of San Francisco.
|If you are a lucid dreamer, you will probably
recall the details of this world. Human figures within the middle astral
often look waxy and artificial.
If you look into the eyes of an astral being while dreaming, you may see only the whites of the eyes, or the iris without the pupil. Figures may shimmer or shine and tend to float or hover.
These are also the realms where many souls go in-between incarnations, and often discover loved ones, or fragments of loved ones. Here, one can review the physical life and resolve issues therefrom.
|The etheric realms are beautiful and full
of light and magic. Many a student on the path has confused the etheric
realms with the celestial heavens.
The celestial planes vibrate at a much higher and more refined level and can only be reached once a soul has mastered the fourth dimensional aspects of self.
This world is guided by faeries, elves, gnomes, devas, angels, archangels and master teachers. These are spirit folk that, unlike the astral selves, are primary fragments (sovereign beings).
|The mental realms are where we go when we
visualize, meditate and project ourselves psychically. All of the psychic
and spiritual gifts utilize the mental planes as a means of creating reality.
This is the scratch pad of the conscious mind. This is the realm we use to create our physical reality. Every time we take an action, it is preceded by a thought.
The causal planes are the highest level of the fourth dimension. This is where souls explore and learn about karma and past and parallel lifetimes. The causal planes are tied directly to the cycle of soul incarnations and serve as a bridge into the higher planes.
|Once a soul masters all these levels of the
fourth dimension, he/she learns to transcend the fourth dimension altogether
and enter the realms of love, spirit and the celestial.
For many souls, it takes a very long time to transcend the fourth dimension. This is because we become attached to our thoughts and their resulting creations.
If we have any unresolved emotional issues, these will tend to get magnified in the astral and mental realms, becoming all-consuming until all we can think about is the pain, grief, loss, anger, fear or terror of traumatic events.
Our willingness to listen only to the voice of God within us and those beings that are 100% aligned with our God Presence will carry us safely out of these realms and into the realm of true Creation.
Once we reach the fifth dimension and above, we become true Gods, having claimed our rightful place in the Heavens.
