I understand how we are on earth in 3D, while simultaneously living in higher dimensions....but I'm puzzled by what exactly will happen when the ascension 'Shift' takes place. If you understand it, please explain it to me!
Take a hypothetical person who is ascending, Dave. He lives in poverty in a cockroach-infested shack. He lost both legs in an accident, and is unemployed. His family + friends, annoyed by his 'crazy' talk of other dimensions, are estranged from him. His neighbours are violent and unpleasant. In 2012 or whenever, what happens to him? Does he find himself living in the beautiful 5D world (or on Venus, or another planet, say)? If so, what happens to his 3D body, does it dematerialize?
Or is he still in the horrible neighbourhood, in the wheelchair, but now able to bear it better? (Like someone in jail but able to see and talk to the fifth-dimension beings; ie, in 3D he is still limited and in a cell, but it's now bearable, if you see what I mean). Or will his outer life gradually or suddenly improve? (He gets lifted out of the shack, the neighbours vanish, he's offered a job, etc). I try, but I have trouble understanding how this Living in 5D while still in 3D actually works in practice. If you could write a bit about this, I'd be really grateful!
We cannot think of planetary ascension from the perspective of our third dimensional reality. It would be incredible difficult to maintain a fifth dimensional state of consciousness while in Dave's horrible surroundings. However, if his Soul took on that contract, and if he was able to hold a fifth dimensional consciousness while in the environment, I would think he would move directly into the second paragraph in which he: found peace, improved his live, found ways in which he could find the assistance he needed for his physical ailments, and likely become a great leader. OR, he may see that his physical life is just a third dimension illusion. Then he could decide to release that illusion and become his Multidimensional SELF. Again, his SELF would guide him to solutions, or allow him to log-out of the 3D illusion and return Home.
I cannot tell you exactly how we will make the shift, or even if it is in 2012. My guides tell me that this is OUR ascension and WE are in the process of creating it now. At the same time, fifth dimensional Earth has always existed because it resonances to the ONE, which is free of the 3D illusions of time and space. Like you, when I have a 3D challenge, I do my research so that I can fully understand what I am about to experience. Spiritual experiences, on the other hand, are quite different. Because these experience take us far beyond the logic our our 3D minds, we must be willing to take the leap into the experience BEFORE we can begin to understand it.
Therefore, we have to take a leap of faith in our SELF and all our inner and outer Guidance to move into an experience that we do not, yet, understand. I have been studying, meditating and channeling about this ensuing experience for 40 years. I think I may know what will happen, but I don't really know how. I have read and channeled different versions. The reason for this is that WE are creating this experience, just as we are creating our daily life. Therefore, just as we are creating different version of daily reality on different days (because of our differing states of consciousness, as well as challenges), there are many different versions of Planetary Ascension.
The best we can "do" is to integrate our Multidimensional SELF into our earth vessel and our daily lives and keep our consciousness attuned to as high a resonance as possible in that moment of our life. Then we need to Surrender to our SELF and enjoy the ride. We are greatly blessed to be alive during this wonderful time. However, because we have a polarized reality, just as the love is becoming more unconditional, the fear is becoming more toxic. Each of us must find our way, then share that way with others. Through our sharing of stories, we contribute our puzzle peace into the grand puzzle of Planetary Ascension. By the way, our entire Solar System, and I have also heard our Galaxy, is also ascending.
When we walk the Spiritual Path, we need to keep our minds open and listen with our Hearts. Our Truth will resonate with unconditional love, but it may not be the same Truth that others have. Earth has always a very diverse planet and is slated to be a 5D intergalactic gateway. Hence, there will be many stories told my many people which are are different versions of the Truth. All of these Truths are ONE Truth seen from different perspectives.
I am sorry I cannot give you a definite answer to your question. I can only give you my answer.
