Right Brain Dreaming – 4th Dimension

Right Brain Dreaming – 4th Dimension by Jan Engels-Smith

Right Brain Dreaming

 

Dreaming is a state of awareness that is mainly right brain.  In a dream, we know that things are magical and spontaneous and don’t seem to follow the logic of cause and effect or the natural laws of three-dimension reality, such as gravity, speed and force.  Dreams can be representative of the instant manifestation qualities of right brain function.  To dream is to manifest and create in a different dimension.  Think it and it has the potential to appear.  Dreams are also complex and often involve subconscious or latent fears that lie in the murky waters of the conscious mind and, when given the opportunity, rise to the surface with sometimes haunting exposure in our dream state.

However, I would like to focus on the magical and creative sides of dreaming.  Dreams blend event to event and are often out of time-line order and don’t necessarily make sense when we try to explain them.  Often people will excuse the “craziness” of them by dismissing them as “only dreams.”  We expect them to be whimsical, nonsensical, mystical, magical and wild, but we should pay close attention to the possible meanings that they impart and to the visions that they create. They enter through our right brain and we need to ponder them beyond the simple analytical efforts of the left brain if we hope to discover their deeper meanings and messages.

Dreaming help us to understand that there are actual dimensions of reality where physical laws are not defined as we normally perceive them, or where such rules are suspended or non-existent.  Metaphysically, dream messages come from a different place—the fourth and fifth dimensions. Life, as we know it in everyday existence, takes place in the third dimension.  We are born into this dimension and few of us in Western society ever transcend its imprisonment.  Third dimension reality is a product of left-brain thinking. The third dimension is often referred to as the mental thought reality.  In this reality we have the ability to remember the past and project into the future. The present moment is hard to obtain.  Those that meditate know what I mean.  The present NOW is fleeting and only truly felt when the mind isn’t absorbed in its incessant chatter of what has happened, what is going to happen, what you thought about what happened, etc.  It goes on and on and the NOW disappears in a blur of rambling thoughts.  We remain locked in a cause/effect, time/space paradigm because the past is imprisoned in our subconscious mind.  This is an ego-based existence.  The ego is only found on the left side of the brain.  Again since we are a left-brain dominant culture, we are also an ego-driven culture.  We have rules, laws, boundaries, separation, and judgment!  The judgment is blatant and drives countries, families and societies into conflict.  Ego can cause greed, jealously, threat, unhappiness, depression, anger, violence and all the lower frequency feelings.  The heightened ego will eventually be the demise of people as it is based on the principle of scarcity, rather than abundance. The ego assumes that one must win at the expense of others.  It harms the body in a multitude of ways, ruins relationships, and diminishes the quality of life.

Shamanic values and new age ideas have offered a different way of being.  We have all heard of the concepts of unity and oneness, living in love, and focusing on our commonalities rather than our differences.  These ideas are actually fourth and fifth dimension realities.  In this realm, we become aware of how we are connected to each other and to the universe. The spirits and the non-physical beings that share this planet with us are commonly revealed in these dimensions. I have had the experience of being in many cultures that are right-brain dominant cultures.  Their life styles are inclusive and alive with spiritual interactions throughout each and every day.  The Bushmen of Africa are known to be the best trackers on the planet. They can track animals on bare rock in the absence of any visible trail.  In left-brain dominant societies, trackers would look for physical signs, such as broken twigs, impressions in the earth, or other third dimension reality imprints.  The Bushmen “see” the energy residue from the animal.  They are seeing with the clairvoyant eyes of the right brain, which sees the non-physical forms left by the animal.  This energy residue is also full of information.  As Terry Kem teaches in his Nature Awareness classes at LightSong, this energy residue can tell a tracker where the animal is headed, if it is male or female, if it is hungry, what age it is.  It is full of information about the animal because it IS the animal.  A part of its energy has been left behind.  A left-brain thinker can’t even comprehend this concept, much less employ it.

Many of us who practice metaphysics know of these states of being.  We experience them regularly.  However, existing in these elevated dimensions is usually not “full time.” Often even explaining our “mystical” experiences forces us into the left-brain structures and limited vocabulary, especially in English, which is predominantly a militant language and has few words powerful enough to hold the energy of the mystical experience.

As we strive for ascension and seek to change our vibrations into higher qualities of purity, we must attend vigorously to creating the conditions of receptiveness by staying focused in our right brain. If we do so, we are constantly reinforced and supported with spiritual interaction and magic and are able to better comprehend our amazing existence.

Dreaming by Jan Engels-Smith

We intuitively are aware of the disjointed and incongruous nature of our life within a civilization that struggles to define itself by attempting to justify what we know is inherently wrong and in conflict with our “better selves.” The reliance on the analytical left brain is limited by “facts” too meager to explain even the simplest questions of why we exist or what we can become. Some us seek to balance this logical and rational side of our intellect with the rich and underutilized right brain that employs a sensuous aesthetic that comprehends holistically and draws meaning from sources far more magical and mysterious than we can manage with our left brain alone.

One of the ways we access this creative and imaginative side of our brain is through our dreams.  When dreaming, we release our control of our thinking and some interior “autopilot” takes over and we move freely through arenas of thought that we could not access in our waking hours. However, this dream state can be achieved in a waking reverie if we are able to release the artificial bonds of our rational mind—not to become irrational but to access a non-rational state where we become cognizant of a truer reality. If we stand on one side of a wall, we might say that nothing exists on the other side because we cannot see it. In one sense, this is the way the left brain functions in its need for tangible proof.  But what if the proof of what exists on the other side of the wall is accessible to us but not with our normal sight?  If we think of the wall as the barrier imposed by our rational mind, then we might imagine the right brain as the window into the hidden world.

Ascension to Higher Dimensions

Ascension to Higher Dimensions by Jan Engels-Smith

Ascension to Higher Dimensions

 

Ascension is the act of moving upward, the transcendence of ordinary conditions of existence, the scaling to new heights of awareness and consciousness. The different dimensions we aspire to offer opportunities to create our own conditions of being and to discover the magical qualities of a fully realized life. Such states of reality are available to all but not without a conscious decision to explore the mystical realms of a reality that differs in form and nature from what we have come to accept in our contemporary culture as the natural state. Ascension is not “unnatural” but, in truth, preternatural, going beyond the commonly defined, but limited, definition of nature that our Western culture has imposed on our society.  Ascension to higher dimensions allows one to see the deeper truths of the natural world and to comprehend our oneness with the universe.  This is the truly “natural” condition and defies the artificial attempts to distinguish humankind as a separate and superior entity that chooses to dominate its surroundings rather than seeing all humans as a fully interdependent and integrated element of a universe that is a single unified life form.

We intuitively are aware of the disjointed and incongruous nature of our life within a civilization that struggles to define itself by attempting to justify what we know is inherently wrong and in conflict with our “better selves.” The reliance on the analytical left brain is limited by “facts” too meager to explain even the simplest questions of why we exist or what we can become. The ascension process seeks to balance this logical and rational side of our intellect with the rich and underutilized right brain that employs a sensuous aesthetic that comprehends holistically and draws meaning from sources far more magical and mysterious than we can manage with our left brain alone.

One of the ways we access this creative and imaginative side of our brain is through our dreams.  In dreams, we release our control of our thinking and some interior “autopilot” takes over and we move freely through arenas of thought that we could not access in our waking hours. However, this dream state can be achieved in a waking reverie if we are able to release the artificial bonds of our rational mind—not to become irrational but to access a non-rational state where we become cognizant of a truer reality. If we stand on one side of a wall, we might say that nothing exists on the other side because we cannot see it. In one sense, this is the way the left brain functions in its need for tangible proof.  But what if the proof of what exists on the other side of the wall is accessible to us but not with our normal sight?  If we think of the wall as the barrier imposed by our rational mind, then we might imagine the right brain as the window into the hidden world.  As we ascend through different dimensions, more windows open and more world is revealed.

The Earth itself is in ascension.  We are in a process of change that portends the possibility of wonderful differences in the future.  The Earth is responding to the needs of humanity to connect in more meaningful ways with our highest aspirations for momentous change to our current condition. Our Mother Earth understands better than we that existence must and can offer wonderfully positive purpose for all of us and we have only to connect to understand and benefit. We often feel that we are buffeted by powerful forces beyond our control, but the Earth reminds us that our unity with nature and our recognition that we are part of a larger cosmic force helps us to see the greater power of a spirit that exists in the universe that overwhelms the negative vibrations of the daily news of war, tragedy, and loss. Many of us who work in the metaphysical sectors are major right brain users. Employing the right brain creates this connection for us and allows us to erase the blind spots in our view of possibilities.

Dream a New Dream

Dream a New Dream By Jan Engels-Smith

Dream a New Dream

In the current state of our economy: lost jobs, stressed budgets, and escalating prices, the stress levels for many are out of control.

In times such as this I turn to my teachings from the spirits and try to see the current situation from a greater perspective: A spiritual perspective. I review these teachings and answer these questions.

1. All things are working for the divine evolution for humanity as well as my own personal evolution towards enlightenment.
2. All are loved beyond measure and to trust in this love.
3. Reasons for individual experiences are as varied as there are people however never forget to consider that growth is happening for each.
4. Where are you in your growth process? What is happening to you and how can you see it with new eyes? The eyes of your true self.
5. Are you being asked to find joy even in adverse conditions?
6. If I am not in joy, what do I believe about my current situation that is pulling me out of joy.
7. Where am I vibrating and what am I attracting because of that vibration?

For any desire to be realized by you, or before anything can manifest in your life experience, there must be vibrational compatibility between your desires and your beliefs . This is an exceptionally important statement to understand!

Many people think that they understand the concepts behind manifestation and then become frustrated because their life isn’t changing in the way they would like it to. They say their affirmations, they create their dream board, but they don’t take a look at what they really believe about their worth or their ability to deserve.

All of our beliefs are broadcast from our chakras, which create much of our auric fields of energy. This broadcast then attracts to it situations in your life that match your belief system (Law of Attraction). You are creating your life from your beliefs and you can’t change your life or manifest what you really want until you change some of what you believe.

What most people don’t realize is that beliefs are choices-nothing more. You can actually change your broadcast, by simple deciding to believe differently.

All of your actions are rooted in your belief system. Although most of your beliefs were formed as a child, you still have a choice whether to follow them. If you do not like what you believe, you can change it. As an adult, you have full control of your beliefs. To change, however, you must take a long, scrutinizing look at your particular belief structure and understand why it exists and if you want to continue embracing it.

When you examine your beliefs, look for the strong messages you received as a child and others that you developed as an adult. You may not yet realize that these strong messages usually constitute a major portion of your core belief structure and hold an incredible amount of power. Write these beliefs, or messages, down on paper in a list form. Keep the sentences short for easy reading. Again, you are searching for the core or foundation of a belief, not the philosophy behind it.

After you have completed your list, write down what you would rather believe. This is the time to be creative and to use your imagination to construct a list that is ideal. Create a belief system that will support you, love you, and work for you, not against you. There are no rules, except that you do this exercise in its entirety. (See Becoming Yourself: The Journey from Head to Heart, page 57.)

The following is a composite of the common belief statements I hear from my clients. Remember: For any desire to be realized by you, or before anything can manifest in your life experience, there must be vibrational compatibility between your desires and your beliefs (The Secret).

The desire: I want more money. The belief: I am so tired of not being able to afford the things that I want to do. [This belief is not a match for the desire.] Change the belief to: I am so glad that each and everyday I am able to afford more things. My life is continually improving. [This belief is match for the desire.]

The desire: I want a better relationship with my employer. The belief: My boss doesn’t realize the value that I offer, and he is just a plain-o-grouch. [This belief is not a match for desire.] Change the belief to: I feel good about the work I do, regardless if anyone notices it. I do quality work. [This is a match for desire.]

The desire: I want to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. I want to loose weight!!!
The belief: It is really difficult, almost impossible to maintain the body weight that I desire without strenuous exercise and depriving myself of the foods I like to eat.
[This belief is not a match for desire.]
Change the belief to: It is possible for me to find a comfortable lifestyle that will give me the results that I want. [This belief is a match for the desire,]
(Esther Hicks, Law of Deliberate Creation)

As you review your list and discern the nature of your current belief system, remember that it represents choice. If it does not reflect what you desire, discard it. Let your imagination go and create a new belief system. Then read that list over and over again. Engage yourself in the envisioning of living that new belief system.

Your lists may look entirely different from the examples that I gave. That is good. In fact, you need to develop your own personal profile. These are just examples to trigger your own thinking. The important thing is to remember that whatever beliefs you choose will manifest into your own reality as you add energy to them. Be good to yourself. Give yourself the best and have fun with this assignment.

This is the first step in the process of bringing a new belief system into reality. In the beginning, it may feel uncomfortable, but let that be. Use your imagination and create. Give yourself permission to explore and create new possibilities. If you cannot imagine something as being possible, then you are not going to have it. But if you can imagine the possibility, you are already on your way to creating it.

Your new belief system may even feel comfortable, like a familiar truth that automatically resonates with your soul. If this happens, realize that your soul is responding to a truth and letting you know about it through a feeling.

Remember to keep putting energy into your new belief. Buy books that will reinforce it, talk about it, gather with people of like minds-all of these acts will add energy to the new beliefs and help them to multiply. Do not be victimized by old belief systems handed to you as a child, especially if they are causing hardships in your life now. Do something about it.

Self-worth and the quality of deserving are at the core of every money issue I have ever encountered while working with a client. Look closely at what you really believe about yourself. Again, underlying belief systems can be hidden from immediate view, but we can discover (or uncover?) them.

Be honest with yourself. You may need to start at the very core to understand how you truly feel about yourself-your self-love. No matter where you are on your spiritual path, keep looking at the issue of love. Love is what the universe is based on-you must not lose sight of this. Love includes self-love. In fact, self-love is the most important. When you love yourself, you will make quality decisions for yourself, which will directly influence every other relationship you have, including your relationship with money.
