The conscious mind is a “great integrator”. It has the innate ability to assimilate messages received from the unconscious and the superconscious realities while simultaneously being aware of our everyday physical reality. This task is only possible because consciousness expands like a flashlight beam. In other words, as we expand our consciousness into the higher dimensions, we simultaneously expand our consciousness into the lower dimensions and visa versa. Therefore, we do not “raise” our consciousness; we expand it. This expansion gives us a wider and clearer perception of stimuli from more than one dimension at a “time”.
Consciousness expansion is much like a roller coaster ride. We usually begin with the slow ascent to our peak consciousness so that we can develop enough self-esteem to plunge into the depths of our unconscious secrets. However, unlike the roller coaster, each progressive excursion goes higher into our upper levels of awareness and deeper into our lower levels. This is because the higher we raise our self-esteem, the more prepared and motivated we are to return to our dark-side to further understand and heal it. Inversely, since our greatest enemy is the one inside ourselves that we DON’T know about, the transformation of this inner enemy builds greater courage to travel again into the “unknown” of our forgotten Higher Self.
As stated in the beginning of this site, we are all multidimensional beings who have come to this time-space quadrant to heal our past so that we can complete our “mission”. This mission is the reason why we chose to take embodiment. If we can remember to remember our superconscious SELF, we can successfully complete our mission. However, there is so much for our conscious minds to integrate before we can even begin this remembrance that many of us get lost in the labyrinth of third dimensional life.
The following excerpt from “Visions from Venus, Book I” by Suzan Caroll, illustrates that multidimensional confusion:
Since this was Shature’s first physical embodiment since Atlantis, she had forgotten how strong the polarities were on the third dimension. Good was wonderful and bad was horrible. Even the light of the Sun was brighter and much more direct here, while the dark of a moonless night was darker than it ever was in Faerie. Shature could not help but compare the differences between life on third dimensional Earth, life on fourth dimensional Faerie, and life on fifth dimensional Venus.
When she was in Faerie with her Divine Complement, Lamire, she was so content that she seldom thought of Venus. But now that she was on Earth again, and even with Lamire in his third dimensional persona of Malton, she still often thought of her Home on fifth dimensional Venus. When she was with Lamire on Venus, they were one being. Now they were still the same Soul, but their individual expressions of it were completely different. When she and Lamire were together in Faerie, they had separate forms, but their hearts and minds were one. Now, the only time that she and Lamire/Malton felt united in that way was when they made love.
Sex was also very different here than on the higher dimensions. In Faerie, sex was for fun and, if their bodies had been harmonized and prepared, it was also for procreation. On Venus, sex was an orgasmic experience of the Cosmic All. This experience was saved for only the most spiritual of rituals of either stepping into the Violet Flame together to bring down a new Soul for embodiment or for consciousness raising to unite with higher portions of one’s SELF. Since most Venusians were androgynous, living in one form with their Complement, sex was a form of meditation rather than a form of physical coupling. Two complete, androgynous beings could also merge in a sexual manner in order to share the experience of bringing down a third Soul into embodiment. This being was then loved and raised by their entire community. Fifth dimensional beings could also join in lovemaking to assist each other in raising their consciousness as well as the group consciousness of their community.
When Shature had viewed Malton from her place in Faerie, and from seeing the lives of the other members of his kingdom, it appeared that sex was used frequently for power. On Earth, sex was often a mating drive like the animals in the forest, except that a female animal had the right to refuse. This right was not always granted to human females. This kind of sex was neither fun nor enjoyable. Sexual encounters seemed impulsive and without forethought. New Souls were brought down into physical form with no planning or preparation, and the honor of parenthood was often reduced to a grim duty. Shature saw that many parents were mere children themselves and completely unprepared to offer their child a happy or fulfilling life.
Shature was also having difficulty adjusting again to the simplest aspects of life on the third dimension. For example, eating seemed like a new experience to her. In Faerie, eating food was for fun and friendship, and on Venus it was a ceremony for the purpose of uniting with and partaking of the Cosmic All. On Venus, their forms were light bodies and nourishment was the vibration of light taken in through the process of breathing. On Earth, however, eating was a basic survival need. Those of money, means and power often ate far too much, while the poor around them lived just above the starvation level.
“Work” was also an unfamiliar concept for Shature. On the Earth plane, one had to work hard, or command someone else to work hard, in order to get what he or she needed. In Faerie, desires were filled by ritual and magic, and on Venus there was complete freedom from all desire because everyone lived in the abundance consciousness of the fifth dimension. In abundance consciousness, one did not desire. They simply manifested what was necessary at that moment, and allowed it to return to the Oneness when it was no longer needed. Shature’s magic skills were still very much intact, and she could manifest for herself whatever she desired. However, she found that she had to do this in private, as there was much fear of the unknown. Also, in the “time” that she was now incarnated, women were not supposed to have power. They were expected to obey their men completely and could only rule over children and other women.
Shature took many trips into the forest where she could open the vortex into Faerie. She returned there often and gained much from her visits. Malton did not wish her, a woman, to leave the castle unescorted and insisted that she was chaperoned by at least two well-armed guards. However, she went to the woods alone as often as she could. She did not understand nor respect the different rules for men and women.
In Faerie, there was still the separation of male and female, but everyone knew that they had a Divine Complement and that they would eventually meet them. Men and women were both completely independent, and all roles and responsibilities were determined by desires rather than by gender. On Venus, most of the people in her community had chosen to be androgynous and therefore, there was no males or females. Each being was seen as a body of light in complete equality and love. Some appeared more feminine or more masculine, but in actuality they were androgynous. There were elders, of course, but everyone knew that they too would achieve that status as they progressed in their spiritual endeavors.
Shature missed the unity consciousness of Venus where each Soul viewed itself as a component of the One. There were no thoughts of separation or limitation there, nor was there comparison or competition. Even in Faerie, where the polarities were stronger than on Venus, there was a constant sense of cooperation and sharing, at least in her community. In Malton’s medieval kingdom, and from what she could determine about the third dimensional world around her, every person felt separate, even from their loved ones. There was love that brought cohesiveness to family and community, but even that was often filled with fear, suspicion, and anger.
The difference that caused her the most embarrassment was the difference in time and space. On Venus, there was no time and space. There was only “here” and “now”. One was in a place at one moment and then, if they desired to change experiences, they would change their thoughts and were instantly wherever those thoughts took them. There was no experience of traveling from one location to another unless the experience of traveling was desired. Although very different from Earth, there was still the concept of time and space on Faerie. One would travel from one “place” to another, and the journey took “time”. However, time in Faerie was relative to the activity. When the activity was enjoyable there seemed to be no passage of time. But when the activity was not enjoyable, time seemed to pass slowly. Therefore, few beings in Faerie performed any activity that they did not enjoy. Shature, still being very much her Faerie self, did not abide by the strict time schedule of castle life. She was usually late, or did not appear at all. Then someone was sent to find her. Shature had planned to be where they awaited her, but she could not keep track of the movement of time in such a regimented fashion.
The truth was that Shature did not want to keep track of her obligations as “Malton’s woman”. She was her “own woman” and she had no desire to be, or to act like, “his Queen”. Malton’s mother started to take over the Queen’s obligations. This was still acceptable because Shature had not yet married Malton, but it had been almost a year since she had come to live with him, and she would have to marry him soon or return to Faerie.
