O.K. now that I have had a good sleep and my brain has unscrambled I am much clearer about my mission and the mission of Spirit of the 8th Fire. Curious as I am about the higher realms and higher beings… that curiosity is essential to my personal journey… Spirit of the 8th Fire is about my role in the here and now. It is about helping other ascend into 5th dimensional beings… to grasp the concept of God the universe and our place there in… from the perspective of spiritual beings.
Just one paragraph left to say on the Laws of physics/metaphysics; these merge under the principle that energy cannot be created or destroyed. Or contained indefinitely for that matter; energy is always in some state of flux (think of a battery… even if you just leave it in a drawer the energy will eventually drain). Nothing in the physical world would exist without the energy that keeps the protons and electrons moving around the neutron of every atom. We can harness energy, transmute it, transform it…but we cannot bring it into and/or out of existence. Energy just IS. Spirit is another word for energy and spiritualism is about learning how to interconnect our individual energies with universal energies. So we must begin with the knowledge that, SPIRIT = ENERGY.
In 3rd dimensional thinking everything falls under the five senses, to
paraphrase Kant, “I bleed, therefore I am.” Eventually, we came to believe that there had to be something beyond mere flesh; our consciousness was evidenced by the fact that we can think independently and abstractly. Thought is a function of the brain but ideas have to come from something more than biochemical neurologic activity. So we evolved into 4th dimensional beings…people (bodies) who have souls (spirits) an
energetic non-physical self which endures beyond the grave. The next stage in human evolution is 5th dimensional awareness, knowing with certainty that we are first SPIRITS with BODIES.
All through history there have been people (teachers, healers and prophets) who tried to share their knowledge of higher realms of existence with us… we were not ready. A few people understood and moved forward; much of what they said was bastardized and turned into organized religion. That is a topic for another forum. Over the past 100 years or so, more and more people have begun to understand 5th dimensional existence. There are a couple of obvious reasons for this phenomenon… first are the changes in our individual brain functions due to the easy access to increased information stimulus. Then there is the energetic shift of 12/12/12 when the planetary alignment moved energy on earth (think moon and tides here). The very fact that each person is energy means that much of this elevated spiritual awareness comes from interacting (whether we know it or not) with beings who are living in 5th dimensional awareness.
Living in the 5th dimensional reality turns everything we know on its head. If everything is energy, acting, reacting, interacting, we have to accept energy (spirit) is connected to all energies. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs says we must satisfy our lower physical needs before we can self-actualize (raise our spiritual awareness). The 5th dimensional perspective
says, "if we actualize, our energy comes into flow with universal energy and everything we truly desire will flow freely to us". This is the basis for all the manifestation hype these days... starting with The Secret. None of these tools can stand alone and none can be employed until you are in 5th dimensional awareness. Think of it as learning to drive your higher consciousness in much the same way as you learned to drive a car. You have to master a series of inter-related skills in a particular sequence, before everything will work the way you want it to.
All those other dimensions will have to wait; for the here and now, my role is to help people move into a 5th dimensional awareness of themselves as Spiritual beings having a physical experience. I have yet to find anyone who does this better than my Native brothers and sisters. I thank them and bless them for sharing the Grandfathers’ Teachings with us and allowing us to walk beside them on the Red Road. Together we will become a tribe of Rainbow Warriors, healing our Mother Earth, healing her people and healing our future, in the glow of The 8th FIRE.
