In the same manner, if we want to experience the higher frequencies of reality, we have to do all we have learned that we need to do to expand our consciousness into the fifth dimension and beyond.
These energies were always there, but the planetary frequency was so low, that we usually could not perceive them. Now that the resonance of Gaia is higher, it is easier for us to hold a higher resonance of consciousness and more easily perceive the energy fields of the higher dimensional worlds. However, if our consciousness lowers, which it absolutely will when we are tired, hungry, upset, in traffic, paying a bill we can afford etc. etc. etc. etc.
we have to love ourselves unconditionally,
forgive ourselves unconditionally,
and accept ourselves unconditionally.
In other words, we need to give to ourselves that which we have so deeply wanted from others. WE are the Core of our life. WE are the Creators of our own reality. That is what is means to be fifth dimensional. That is what is means to ascend.
