We are multidimensional beings. However, when we were born, our great, multidimensional light passed through the prism into the third dimension to enter our physical body, and we forgot our SELF. If we can awaken to the fact that we are more than our earth vessel and remember that “we” are really the light that fills this vessel—and much, much more—we can remember our true, Multidimensional SELF. We connect with our dimensional bodies via our dimensional consciousness. In this manner, we can commune with our higher dimensional bodies via our consciousness even while we are grounded in our earth vessel.
First-dimensional consciousness is awareness as a point. The consciousness that resonates to this dimension is the Mineral Kingdom. Current third-dimensional science has not proven that minerals have any awareness as we recognize it, but healers and shamans have been using crystals as healing tools for many centuries.
As humans, our first-dimensional consciousness is unconscious—it is in fact a state of not being conscious of our five physical senses. However, the first dimension is a portion of our bodies and represents the minerals, water, cells, and genetic codes that are the foundation of all physical forms. If we could access this level of our unconscious, we could connect with Gaia and all her creatures via the most basic common denominator, the individual molecules. Perhaps we could even consciously access our own genetic coding.
Visualize yourself as a first-dimensional being. You are an atom of carbon, a drop of water, and an imprint upon a strand of DNA. However, you cannot perceive the strand or the other molecules of water and carbon. You are only conscious of the exact point of your awareness. As you look inside you, you find that another world exists, a world of electrons, protons, nuclei, and quarks. You are the gateway between the macrocosm and the microcosm.
Our first-dimensional consciousness gives us the perspective of experiencing reality through our deeply subconscious, cellular self in which we are receptive to our quantum self and our DNA.
Second-dimensional consciousness is awareness as point and line. The consciousness that resonates to this dimension is biological matter, such as the Plant Kingdom, which covers our beautiful planet, and the lower Animal Kingdom, such as reptiles and fish. The consciousness of this dimension does not possess self-awareness. These beings are only conscious of their species' identity and their need for feeding, fighting, and procreation. Their consciousness is based upon survival of the fittest and they live solely within the awareness of the moment.
Human second-dimensional consciousness is centered in the lower brain, also known as our "reptilian brain," which directs the autonomic nervous system to regulate and maintain life support functions. Our five physical senses are largely unconscious of this component of ourselves, but with training (such as biofeedback and meditation) we can establish some conscious awareness and control. Yogis, for example, are known to achieve enough conscious control of their autonomic nervous system to regulate their heartbeat and metabolism.
"Primitive" peoples are much more aware of this "animal" portion of their physical form and, therefore, have conscious access to their basic instincts and an awareness of how they are a portion of a greater whole. Unlike "civilized" man, they have a constant respect for all life and the balance of nature.
As you expand your consciousness to perceive the second dimension, you become aware of your environment. However, your demands from your environment are simple: you must survive, and you live only to continue the existence of your species. You will protect yourself and procreate in the proper season, but you look neither forwards nor backwards, and you dwell only in the present. You are what you are and where you are. You do not plan or reflect. Your perceptions are confined to what you can eat, use, fight, mate with, or rear. However, you are part of a herd, and your herd and you are one. Your instincts guide you, and you are a part of nature.
Third-dimensional consciousness is awareness of point, line, length, breadth, height, and volume. The primary consciousness of this dimension is the higher Animal Kingdom (including humans). Just like our third-dimensional planet, our third-dimensional body is composed of all the elements of the first and second dimension: water, minerals, genetic coding, and biological matter, as well as an individual Soul.
Awareness of our Multidimensional SELF is best remembered when we have expanded our consciousness beyond the confines of mundane life to take some time for inner reflection. It is with the brave journey into our unconscious mind that we can find our greatest power, as well as our deepest wounds that have barred us from our power. When we become aware of the many aspects of our forgotten SELF, our consciousness expands to encompass more than our ego and third-dimensional reality.
Imagine your “self” from the perspective of your inner imagination. How do you look to yourself from here? How do you feel about you from your inner being? Do you feel grounded in the Earth and connected to all life? Perhaps now that you have directly experienced your first- and second-dimensional selves, you feel a greater unity with the life around you that resonates to the lower vibrations of your physical body and planet. Perhaps a crystal can heal, and a plant can respond to your voice and personal attention. Your mundane thoughts tell you that that is ridiculous, but a primitive instinct seems to have been jarred in your consciousness. You are no longer so very different from the world around you. Maybe, you are a portion of the planet.
Our third-dimensional consciousness allows us the perspective of perceiving reality from the viewpoint of our personal, human self and our Collective Consciousness in which we are receptive to the consciousness of all humans.
Fourth-dimensional consciousness is awareness of point, length, breadth, height, volume, and time. The laws of time and space are different here than in the third dimension, as it is an octave up in frequency from our physical world. Because of this, fourth-dimensional perceptions of past, present, and future are fluid. From your third-dimensional self, your fourth-dimensional self may seem like your “higher human,” as it is the last dimension where physical vehicles are used to contain individual consciousness. However, our Multidimensional SELF expands far beyond this reality.
Fourth-dimensional consciousness encompasses our group identity without the loss of our personal ego. However, because of the fluid nature of time and space, our fourth-dimensional forms naturally morph. Hence, there is great mobility of form here, and this is the realm of the mythological shape shifters. A shaman or holy person who can shape-shift has learned to ground his or her fourth-dimensional form into the third dimension so completely that he or she can temporarily change shape.
Much of our third-dimensional life also exists on the fourth dimension in the format of a higher vibration, but we are not aware of it because that reality is not in sync with our physical time and space. We can have a dream of an entire lifetime and wake up to find that only five minutes of our physical time has passed. Our fourth-dimensional reality is not perceivable to our third-dimensional self until we have expanded our consciousness.
The fourth dimension is the realm which holds the awareness of our body's first- and second-dimensional components, as well as all past experiences of our entire life. We can expand our third-dimensional consciousness into the fourth dimension through gaining an awareness of the inner-workings of our physical body, remembering our dreams, and having intense experiences of passion, emotion, creativity, and/or spirituality.
The Astral Plane, also known as the Emotional Plane, is the lowest octave of the fourth dimension and is the realm of dream life. When we are asleep, we are unconscious in the third dimension, but we are conscious in the fourth dimension. Our fourth-dimensional astral body possesses advanced dreaming, imagination, psychic ability, intuition, magic, and creativity. As we expand our mind to the frequency of the fourth dimension, we can experience more and more of these qualities while in our physical form.
Some people are born with an innate connection to their fourth-dimensional self and must work to ground their consciousness in a third-dimensional world that often feels foreign and hostile. Others are born without this awakened connection, and they usually feel more comfortable and at home within the third-dimensional paradigm. These people often feel cut off from the higher-dimensional portions of themselves and may not even believe that their higher selves exist.
However, our fourth-dimensional body does exist and its highest vibration is known as our Spiritual Body. Much as a person upon a mountaintop can observe and guide the residents of the valley below, our Spiritual Body observes us on the third dimension and can give us guidance. However, the fourth dimension still has the polarization of light and dark, and this realm is not necessarily more loving, especially on the lower sub-planes. On the fourth dimension, thought and feelings create reality much more quickly than on the third dimension, and fear can create evil as easily as love can create beauty and joy.
