Dimensions and Densities
Most of the information in this article can
be examined in depth in “Life
On the Cutting Edge,” my self-help manual. I mention in the
book that level confusion is a big problem. What I see here involves
three levels. I call them 3D, 4D and 5D, for lack of better terms.
This can refer to dimensions or densities. There is actually a difference
between densities and dimensions, which I go into in the book. In
this article, I will focus primarily on dimensions.
I also want to touch on and clarify the social
difference between the third, fourth and fifth dimensions and how
they relate to common political systems.
The 3rd dimension is the realm where suffering
is a tragedy that can be prevented by taking 3D action -- feeding
the hungry, expelling the dictators, voting for peace instead of
war, etc. Our actions have a definite effect on the 3D world and there's
a lot of 3D action we can do to help alleviate the suffering. The 3rd
dimension represents conformity (following a leader) and the corresponding
political system is often socialism (or its cousin, communism).
The 4th dimension is the realm of karma (cause
and effect). In this realm, everyone creates their own version of
reality and we are not responsible for another's karma. People can
create a 4D heaven or 4D hell, depending on their consciousness. This
is the world of time, thought and mind. The 4th dimension represents
individuality and creativity and the corresponding political system
is capitalism (in its ideal state when people are mature enough to
make it work).
The 5th dimension is the realm of love and compassion.
It is here that we truly see that we are not separate -- that we
are one being living in one universe created by one God. When we
live in 5D, compassion is normal, natural and spontaneous. Spirit
within directs us to take the best possible action to help ourselves
and our fellow aspects of God. The 5th dimension is unity (completely
different from conformity) and involves mature spiritual beings co-creating
together while respecting each others' individuality. Unfortunately,
there does not appear to be a current political system that reflects
this (maybe politics becomes a moot point when one enters the 5th dimension).
The reason I bring all this up is that a lot of
people seem to confuse conformity with unity and they get a bad
taste in their mouth when they see words like "utopia." After all,
people cannot jump from conformity to unity -- they must first go through
individuality (freedom to express who they are without government
interference). It is very difficult to live in a state of freedom while
in the world, because the early stages of individuality can involve
turmoil and violence (which normally needs to be held in check through
some sort of police force). It is only when the individual raises
his/her vibration sufficiently (through self-awareness) that true
unity is possible.
The lower four dimensions of our Universe are
created, controlled and maintained by the mind. Our minds are
microcosms of the Universal Mind (macrocosm).
The word “Maya” represents the lower four dimensions
of reality – the worlds of duality, created and maintained by mind
through personal and collective belief systems. Real Love begins
in the 5th dimension.
We are living in all three of these realms (3D,
4D, 5D and many more) simultaneously and making choices based
on the dominant realm at the time of the choice. Some choices are
aligned with all three dimensions, while others conflict.
My goal is to always align these three realms
when I make decisions. If I join an organization that helps feed
people, for instance, I might do so on a 3D level because I don't
want to see people suffer. I might do so on a 4D level because I feel
a karmic sense of responsibility or because it feels good. I might
do so on a 5D level because those starving children are aspects of
What about the higher dimensions?
It's hard to put higher dimensions into Earthly
language. Think of an onion, but reversed from the way it is
normally described. The higher dimensions are deeper and more
essential than the superficial "outer" layers, yet the higher layers
contains the lower ones, and so they are more vast, unlike the onion,
whose inner layers are smaller. I cannot even visualize this, but I
feel it to be true, and the work of many metaphysical pioneers seems
to back it up. Dimensions are both concave and convex simultaneously,
as I see it -- it's hard to fathom this with our 3D brains.
To reiterate, the "reverse onion" analogy suggests
that the lower dimensions are contained within the higher ones.
The higher dimensions are where duality and separation are seen
as illusions. It is indeed difficult to convey the reality of higher
dimensions to those of us who appear to be stuck in the lower dimensions.
Love is a higher-dimensional reality that is distorted as it “cascades
down” into the realms of perceived duality. That is why we have so
many forms (agape, romantic, etc.).
This table shows the levels of consciousness,
in ascending order:
logical, rational mind, ego
imaginative, psychic, intuitive
intelligence, insight, love
level, soul level (last level of individuality)
level (group consciousness)
level (a high level of mastery)
level (unconditionally loving consciousness)
level (cosmic consciousness)
level (God consciousness)
level (Universal consciousness)
Void, the Great Mystery
Over the years, I've refined my system of
dimensions and densities somewhat based on personal experience
and verification from other sources. Here's what I've got:
Plant & lower animal kingdom
Higher animal & lower human
Low: Astral, lower emotional realms
High: Etheric, higher mental realms
Low: Causal, creative realms
High: Soul (last level of individuality)
Oversoul (social memory complex)
Master oversoul, atmic plane
Avatar planes, celestial heavens
Christ planes, Buddhic planes, lower God worlds
10th Density: Higher
11th Density: Universal
12th Density: The
source; the mystery, the Tao
13th and beyond: The void, unmanifested
I've borrowed some terms from Eckankar and other
disciplines, but this is based on my own perceptions. My own exploration
concurs with many others that there are many sub-planes within
each major density level. Remember that densities and dimensions are
labels for convenience only so that our intellects can grasp these
ideas. In actuality, there is not always a sharp demarcation between
My understanding of the astral is as follows:
There are several “negative” astral levels,
including what many religions call “purgatory” or the “netherworlds”,
places where soul fragments journey to learn about separation,
fear and terror. In these “lower” realms, fear thoughts manifest
as grotesque apparitions, monsters, etc.
In the higher regions of the “astral” are common
dream states, out-of-body experiences, lucid dreaming, etc. There
is a lot of talk about negative entities and their effect on humans.
Whether ghosts, poltergeists or negative ETs, the truth is that these
beings can only affect us if we vibrate at a level that attracts them.
When we reach the higher realms, these experiences are seen as dreams,
or part of the “maya” of the lower four dimensions.
Regardless of whether or not "reptilians"
are real ETs or only holographic projections does not ultimately
matter. If they are fourth dimensional vibrations, then like all
4D entities, going beyond the “maya” into the 5th dimension is the
way to freedom. I personally do not live in fear of the reptilians
or their agenda of fear because I know that overcoming fear within
my consciousness is the answer.
All this is corroborated in many books by many
Beyond the astral is what is commonly called
the “etheric” realms, which have a more refined vibration. The
upper etheric realms encroach upon the mental realms, the place
of higher imagination. Beyond these are the causal planes, realms
of great beauty and perfection. They are causal because they “control”
the 3D and 4D worlds through a complex series of crystal grids (think
of sacred geometric figures, only now in multi-colored swirling patterns).
It is here that higher thoughts are coalesced into DNA and other life-form
structures. As you might have guessed, the akashic records and divine
blueprint of each soul are part of the causal planes.
Next up the ladder (corresponding roughly to
6D and 7D) are the soul and oversoul realms, celestial planes
and other “God-worlds”.
Many years ago I was briefly introduced to Eckankar,
and I noted they had a chart of the higher densities that I thought
was quite accurate. (I'll bet you can get a copy of the chart
on the Internet.)
There is some confusion as to what is “inner”
and what is “outer” with respect to densities. The easy way around
this is that everything is “inner”. The “outer” is an illusion. It's
all one continuous energy emanating from the One and we are the collective
creation doing the emanating.
Regarding our multidimensional nature: This
is a paradox we are investigating here. When we are in our center,
we realize we already exist in 5D. In fact, each one of us has
at least 12 dimensions of being. We are simply unaware of the vast
majority of Who We Are.
Our level of vibration corresponds to the
composite total of where we place our attention. Within the Earthly
sphere, most of us are vibrating at a composite level between 3D
and 4D. Using the calibration scale developed by Dr. David Hawkins, most of humanity
is vibrating a lot lower than that. I was informed by my higher self
and through muscle testing that my composite vibration at the beginning
of 2004 was approximately 4.5 (450 on the Hawkins scale).
As multidimensional beings we exist simultaneously
in all densities and dimensions. The variable here is awareness.
Where is our attention? Are we stuck in attachment to the physical?
Are we stuck in our heads? Are we too much heart and not enough “gut”?
What scripts are we still playing out that bind us to the realm of
karma? Are we denying our emotional bodies or squelching our emotional
desires based on a belief they are not spiritual?
The 6D perspective looks lovingly on humanity
and does not judge. The service-to-others (STO) urge is spontaneous
and natural because we are all One.
The more we desire to experience 5D or higher
and put our attention there, the more our overall vibration will
move into 5D or higher. Whether this takes a month or 1000 years
is irrelevant since we already exist in 5D and higher, and need only
place our awareness there to experience it.
Regarding living in 5D: If it were that easy,
we'd all be there already. There's a lot of self-discipline and
study that goes into this for most of us. That's why we have spiritual
teachers, groups and countless self-help books and techniques, such
as David Wilcock’s Convergence series
and the work of Ra, Cayce and others. However, the more we focus
our attention on our 5D selves, the more we are drawn to those experiences
that accelerate our evolution into 5D. Sometimes, those experiences
involve going back and healing aspects of self that vibrate in 3D
This is a difficult subject because words are
inadequate to express anything beyond 5D. I have an inner knowing
that there are densities or dimensions beyond 6D, and others have
talked about this, but until we experience these directly, any descriptions
will fall short.
The part of us that is aware is like the tip of
an iceberg. The vast majority of WHO WE ARE lies below, above
and beyond the surface. At times we get glimpses of realms beyond
the beyond. The density scale I use was given me by my God presence
and the detailed descriptions are available in Life On the Cutting Edge
