FOURTH DIMENSIONAL SUB-PLANES
There are seven sub-planes of the
fourth dimension. Each sub-plane resonates to a different frequency. The higher
sub-planes resonate to higher frequencies and the lower sub-planes resonate to
lower frequencies. With the highest frequency planes on the top, the planes
thought and the Higher Human form
Mental Plane=concrete thought and lower mind
Kingdom of Faerie=imagination, rest and recreation
Lower Astral Plane=fear and negative emotions
Etheric Plane=interface between third and fourth dimensions
Each of the sub-planes
within the fourth dimension has its own corresponding degree of materiality and
condition of matter. In fact, within each sub-plane there are different
frequency realities that are of gradually ascending vibratory rates.
For example, the
Astral/Emotional Plane has many sub-planes within it ranging from a lower
vibration where there is more fear than love to a higher vibration where there
is more love than fear. However, these different planes are not separate like
books piled on a bookshelf. Each sub-plane penetrates the one just above it and
All of the fourth dimensional realities
overlap. The higher dimensional realities extend further from earth and the
lower dimensional realities are closer to earth. In fact, the lower astral
sub-planes are actually here on the surface of the earth but are of a higher
However, because the fourth dimension is "out
of phase" with our third dimensional perceptions, we are not consciously aware
of it. As people begin to raise their consciousness, their perceptions will
gradually become receptive to a reality of a higher frequency. Then they begin
to see and hear what others do not. This can be very disturbing to one who has
OUR MANY BODIES
The inner worlds of the
fourth dimension are as vast and limitless as our imagination. However, the
fourth dimension is NOT just our imagination, it is very real. Within us is the
latent power to perceive, respond to and travel through this dimension. We all
have "bodies" upon each of the fourth dimensional sub-planes in which we travel.
That means that, whether we are aware of it or not, we all have an etheric body,
an astral/emotional body, a mental body, a causal/spiritual body, which is our I
AM Presence, and a life in Faerie.
Whenever we are incarnated on the third
dimension, all of these higher bodies are also "alive" and serve as our "mirror"
and support team. When we travel in the fourth dimension, we do so in the body
that resonates to that sub-plane or a higher one. In other words, we can travel
through the Astral Plane in our astral body or in our mental or causal bodies.
It is best to travel the lower sub-planes in
our higher frequency bodies, as we may need the greater light of our higher
bodies to serve as protection. This protection is especially needed in the
Lower Astral Plane. The light and love of our higher dimensional bodies is the
greatest protection from the darkness and fear of the lower astral sub-planes.
TRANSFERRING OUR AWARENESS
Moving from one sub-plane
to another, it is not like moving on 3D Earth. Instead, we need to think in
terms of transferring our consciousness from one reality to another. When we
transfer our consciousness to another reality, we gradually become less
responsive to the perceptions of the reality we are in and more responsive to
the perceptions of the reality to which we are traveling.
We have all had this experience as we slowly
drift off to sleep. First we are more aware of the physical world, and then,
slowly, without our realizing it, we have flashes of a "dream." Often these
flashes come while we are still awake. Eventually, the physical world is
perceived in flashes, and our dream world becomes predominant.
This same process occurs when we meditate.
Through meditation we can raise our consciousness to a higher vibration by
focusing our awareness on the higher dimensions.
NAVIGATING IN THE FOURTH
We navigate through the
fourth dimension by combining our feelings/emotions and intentions/thoughts. Our
feelings and intentions create a corresponding frequency of consciousness.
The higher states of
consciousness resonate to a higher frequency, whereas the lower states of
consciousness resonate to a lower frequency. It is our state of consciousness
that creates our expectations. Our expectations then direct our perceptions to
experience the reality in which that our state of consciousness believes.
For example, if we are feeling bliss and joy,
our consciousness will raise to a high frequency. In this state of consciousness
we will expect to experience love and harmony. Our expectations will then set
our perceptions for that frequency. We will then experience the reality that
vibrates to the frequency of that state of consciousness, expectations, and
On the other hand, if we are angry and
afraid, our consciousness will lower. From this level of consciousness we will
expect struggle and strife. Our perceptions will then calibrate to that
frequency, and we will experience that reality.
This dynamic also applies to traveling
through the various levels of the third dimension. There are many different
third dimensional realities resonating to different octaves/frequencies of the
3D reality, just as there are different octaves of the 4D reality.
Our states of consciousness set our beliefs
about what we expect from life. Then, our expectations calibrate our perceptions
to perceive that which fits into those beliefs. Our experience of life is
dictated by the frequency to which our perceptions are calibrated.
A street person has a "survival" state of
consciousness. They expect to be cold, hungry, and alone. Therefore, their
perceptions are focused on gathering food and finding shelter.
On the other hand, a self-realized person has
learned how to survive in the world comfortably enough to have time and energy
to pursue spiritual, artistic, and philosophical endeavors. They expect to have
a, enough food, and friends with whom they can share their interests. They
perceive a lovely day for a hike, a new play at their favorite theater, and the
current activities of the stock market.
A self-realized person and a street person
could be standing side by side and be realities apart. Just as the realities in
the third dimension range from the street person to the of a self-realized
person, the realities within the fourth dimension range from the Lower Astral
Plane to the Causal/Spiritual Plane.
FEELINGS AND INTENTIONS
Even though we navigate the
fourth dimension by combining our feelings and intentions, if they are not in
sync with the frequency to which we wish to travel, we will not arrive at that
For example, if we intend
to go to the Causal Plane, but we are feeling afraid, that fear will limit our
vibratory rate, and hence, our consciousness. Consequently, it will be more
likely that we will find ourselves in the lower to mid astral sub-planes than in
the Causal Plane.
Our intention also directs our destination.
If we travel into the Astral/Emotional Plane with the intention of harming
another, our level of consciousness will resonate to the Lower Astral Plane
where fear and anger abound.
On the other hand, if we enter the
Astral/Emotional Plane with the intention of service and love, our level of
consciousness will resonate to the higher astral sub-planes where there is more
love and light.
If we travel into the fourth dimension with
the intention of learning more cosmic truth and communicating with higher
beings, our consciousness will resonate to the Mental and/or the Causal Plane
where illumination awaits us.
Of course, raising our consciousness to the
higher fourth dimensional realities is not an easy task. It requires much
training, discipline, and most of all, LOVE.
DENSITY AND VIBRATION
The fourth dimension begins
here on earth and extends thousands of miles beyond the surface into the
ionosphere. The higher in altitude that we travel in the third dimension, as
well as the higher we raise our consciousness that we travel in the fourth
dimension, the more rarified and less dense the environment becomes.
There is less matter and
more light in the higher altitudes of the third dimension and less fear and more
love in the higher frequencies of the fourth dimension. Therefore, in order to
travel to the higher planes of the fourth dimension, we must be able to fill
ourselves with love. In other words, we must be able to love ourselves, for how
can we fill ourselves with love if we cannot love ourselves?
Matter limits the vibratory rate of physical
elements to make them denser, and fear limits the vibratory rate of non-physical
elements to make them denser. For example, the element of earth is solid. It
holds the most matter within it, is the densest, and has the lowest vibration.
The next element up in vibration is water,
which is liquid. Water holds less matter than the earth element, is less dense
and has a faster vibration. Finally, the element of air is gaseous, has the
least density and the fastest vibration.
In order to raise our consciousness high
enough to travel to the higher planes, we must go deep within ourselves. We can
consciously love ourselves enough to travel into some portions of the Astral
Plane, but in order to travel into the higher planes we must also love ourselves
from DEEP within our unconscious.
This inner love means that we love ALL that
we have been and ALL that we have experienced. If we cannot love ourselves in
this fashion we will not be able to release enough fear to raise our vibration,
and therefore our consciousness, above the mid-astral sub-planes.
The transformation of our
consciousness can be likened the transformation of water boiling in a pan. First
the water is room temperature and the molecules move relatively slowly. When the
fire beneath the pan heats the water, the molecules move faster and faster until
the water boils. When the water boils, portions of it become steam and rise into
the air. If the pan is not removed from the fire, all the water will then
transform into steam and the pan will become "empty."
Metaphorically, the pan is like our body, the
fire is like our rising Kundalini, and the water is like our consciousness. Just
as the pan and fire remain on the stove, our physical body remains on the earth
while we transfer our awareness to the higher bodies. If the empty pan were to
remain on the fire, it would begin to degrade without the water to protect it
from the fire. Our physical bodies would also degrade if all of our
consciousness left. Our consciousness is our life force. It is the pilot of our
earth vessel. Without the pilot, the "vessel" would crash.
As a skyscraper must have a deep foundation
in order to reach high into the sky, we must be deeply rooted in the physical
earth to raise our consciousness into the higher dimensions. It is love for
ourselves and for the planet that affords us that grounding. The more intimately
we can love ourselves, the higher in consciousness we can travel. Love is the
antidote to the fear that lowers our vibration and limits our consciousness.
THE LOWER ASTRAL PLANE
The Lower Astral Plane is
the lowest sub-plane of the fourth dimension. It lies partly on the surface of
the earth and partly, perhaps mostly, beneath the surface of the earth. Remember
that the fourth dimension is "out of phase" with our physical sense organs, and
it is not perceivable to our third dimensional consciousness.
The Lower Astral Plane is
filled with the emotions of fear, anger, sorrow, guilt, and pain. These negative
emotions lower the vibration of this plane and diminish its light. Vision here
is like looking through an infrared camera where the only colors are black,
gray, and dirty red.
The Lower Astral Plane is not imaginary. It
does have an objective existence. It is not evil of itself but instead resonates
to and reflects the evil within those who visit it. If we were to calm our fear
with love, we would take on a higher frequency astral body. Then we could safely
travel through the Lower Astral Plane to assist its poor inhabitants. In fact,
many spiritual people give the service of Lower Astral "rescue work."
The inhabitants of the
astral sub-planes above the Lower Astral Plane see the same earth that we see in
the third dimension. However, the enhanced perceptions of the astral body allow
the traveler to perceive much more. With our astral vision, we can see the outer
appearance as it is seen on the third dimension. However we can also see the
etheric body, the aura, and the prana that is circulating over, under, around
and through the life forms and objects. In fact, on the fourth dimension it
becomes apparent that ALL "objects" have a life force.
As we move into the higher realities of the
Astral/Emotional Plane it is much lighter. Therefore, colors are more
perceivable and objects are clearer. Once there, we lose sight of third
dimensional earth and become absorbed with the fascinating process of creating
reality with our thoughts and feelings.
The entire Astral/Emotional Plane from the
Lower Astral Plane to the base of the Mental Plane acts like a mirror for our
emotions. In these fourth dimensional realities, feelings from the third
dimensional world are amplified. They then reverberate back to the physical
world in an ever-expanding arc like a wave buffeting back ad forth between two
walls. However, if we can travel into the Astral Plane and calm this storm, our
third dimensional emotions will also lessen.
Summerland is astral
sub-plane where “dead” persons go who are not aware that they have died. These
persons are either not in touch with their higher self and spiritual guidance,
or they are not yet ready to accept that their physical life has ended. In
Summerland, they can finish whatever earthly goals they were unable to achieve.
If their goals were to harm others and cause fear, they will not be able to
remain there because the vibration of their consciousness will pull them down
into the Lower Astral Plane.
The vibration of Summerland resonates to
love. It is a place where loving people who "die" while disillusioned or
unfinished with their physical life can feel a sense of fulfillment and
completion. Summerland is like a halfway house where the inhabitants can prepare
themselves for their rebirth into the physical world or into the higher planes.
The light and the colors in
Faerie are so bright that it is like coming out of a dark cave and into a bright
field. Much of Faerie looks like the physical plane, but there are also plants,
beings, and humanoids there that do not exist on the third dimension. Our fairy
tales and fantasy novels give a true representation of life in Faerie.
THE MENTAL PLANE
>The Mental Plane has much
less density than the Astral Plane. In fact, in the mental sub-planes, emotions
are muted because they are balanced. For example, fear and love, happiness and
sorrow, are no longer polarized into separate emotions and are, instead,
perceived as a spectrum encompassing all extremes. Without the polarity of
emotions there is no longer the "charge" that distracts our feeling body and
lowers our consciousness. Therefore, we can to "think" about out emotions
without the judgment and criticism that is so common on the third dimension.
Here the combination of thoughts and emotions
quickly manifest as objects or experiences. However, our perceptions that were
so bright and distinct on the higher astral sub-planes are muted, like looking
through a gauze veil. Matter on the Mental Plane is very fine, and objects are
temporary because they are created by our attention and disappear when they no
longer hold them in our mind.
Just as the Astral Plane creates and reflects
our emotions, the Mental Plane creates and reflects our thoughts. The Mental
Plane encompasses our concrete thought, our mental body, and the aura of our
mind. Traveling through the Mental Plane can assist us in releasing old core
beliefs of limitation and separation.
THE CAUSAL PLANE
The Causal Plane is the
highest vibration of the Mental Plane. However, it resonates to a much higher
frequency then the rest of the Mental Plane. Therefore, it is infinitely more
beautiful. This plane is filled with Light, Love, and Truth. The Causal Plane is
the plane of our "Higher Self." This plane rules our abstract thought and can
facilitate quick changes in our third dimensional thinking if we allow the
wisdom of our "Higher Self" to enter our physical consciousness.
THE CAUSAL/SPIRITUAL PLANE
The highest frequency of
the Causal Plane is the Spiritual Plane where our Higher Human resides. Our
Higher Human consists primarily of Light and holds very little matter. From the
perspective of our Higher Human, we are able to pierce the veil between each
plane and see our many selves. This process is like looking through a house of
mirrors to see the many "bodies" of our self. However, our true Self is the
When our Soul desires a physical life, it
steps its vibration down into the Higher Human who then clothes itself in the
matter of the appropriate planes to become "born" into the physical world. On
each of the sub-planes between the physical and Causal/Spiritual Plane is a body
we can inhabit for our fourth dimensional journeys.
It is from the Causal/Spiritual Plane that
the Rainbow Bridge can lift our vibration into the fifth dimension and into our
fifth dimensional Lightbody. Our “I AM Presence” guards the threshold of this
Bridge, waiting to guide us across it when we are ready.
When the third and fourth
dimensions collapse into the fifth dimension, we will all wear bodies of light.
Whether this transformation will occur slowly or suddenly remains to be seen.
Either way, when the transformation occurs, many people will be confused. They
will then seek guidance from the Lightworkers who have faced their fear and
darkness and forged ahead into the planes of love and light.
