If you are interested in energy, science and spirituality, then the terms multidimensional reality and dimensions of consciousness might be familiar to you. However, if it’s your first time, then you are in the right place.
There’s a lot of information online about transitioning from 3D to 4D, 5D and beyond. The world is undergoing transformation, a shift and beings in higher dimensions of consciousness are working tirelessly and selflessly to facilitate this shift we are being told.
Let’s not get confused between dimensions that describe our reality, the physical world and those of consciousness.
Dimensions of the Physical World
The world as we know it has three dimensions of space – length, width and depth (height) and one dimension of time. Whether we say we live in 4D or a 3D+1D, we cannot separate these dimensions from one another while still being physically correct.
To completely describe an event in spacetime, we need to know more than just where it occurs but also when. In addition to coordinates x, y, z, we also need time coordinate t. An event can be represented as a point and therefore the motion of a point can be represented by a curve in spacetime, giving us a world line of an event.
We live in a world where we can control how we move through 3D space, but we cannot control 4th dimension, time. We’re constantly moving forward with time. Moving through the dimension of time requires supernatural powers, which is a topic for another time.
According to string theory, also known as ‘superstring theory,’ there are at least ten dimensions of space (plus the dimension of time, making it 11). According to Bosonic string theory, mainstream physicists use the magic number to say that there are 26 dimensions of space!
‘Superstring theory’ unifies two main theories: the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics.
Einstein’s general theory of relativity applies to massive objects. The theory is being questioned but still stands and holds that what we perceive as the force of gravity arises from the curvature of space and time. And quantum mechanics applies to objects smaller than atoms.
We cannot perceive more than three dimensions of space as they exist on a subatomic level. String theorists say that these extra dimensions are curled up so tightly, and they are too small for us to notice directly.
But what about the dimensions of consciousness? How many dimensions are there, and how do they relate to our multidimensional physical reality?
Dimensions of Consciousness
Just like you and I, our planet is also a living entity. It goes through various stages of development.
Matter – from a living cell to heavenly bodies – would never have assumed the form it has, had it not been for the organising principle: the energy-informational field. It is this field that unites the whole world into a single system. Without it, the world would be in chaos.
As our planet goes through various stages of development, at the same time, it provides an opportunity in its field for the development of various creatures. These creatures are at different stages of development of consciousness and therefore are located in different energy-informational niches of the planet. These niches are known to us as mineral, plant, animal and human kingdoms. From this point of view, we understand that all of nature is alive. All of nature occupy various steps of the evolutionary ladder of consciousness.
Thus, one can come to an understanding of the existence of the power of the mind and beings occupying a high intellectual and spiritual level such as Muhammad, Buddha, Jesus, Moses, etc.
When talking about the power of the mind, it’s important to distinguish between conscious, subconscious and superconscious.
The conscious mind involves all of the things we are currently aware of and thinking about, and it has a ten per cent share of our mental domain. Remember the picture of an iceberg? It’s the tip of the iceberg that we can see above water.
Our conscious mind functions very much like a computer. Its four main functions are to identify incoming information, compare, analyse and decide.
The unconscious mind involves all things that we are not currently aware of, but it can be detected and understood through the skilled analysis of dreams, behaviour, or hypnotism.
Being unconscious is to be in a state of deep sleep. Being conscious means being awake but not entirely controlling what is happening in your inner and outer fields.
We can compare the development of human consciousness to the growth and development of a child. While he is very small, we hide sharp objects from him to preserve his life and health. Then he gradually develops, goes to the 1st, 2nd grade, etc. It never occurs to anyone to take a five-year-old child to college.
Gradually, in the process of life, we also undergo training. When we reach a high level of spirituality, our consciousness expands, we attain greater strength, abilities, awareness, and higher intelligence than ordinary consciousness, we attain enlightenment, i.e. we are “ready”. Some teachers call it super-consciousness. Then we are no longer confined to the nature of human existence and have reunited with the divine, our soul or spirit.
We are then ready to receive information (e.g. past incarnations) that we would not usually be able to access in the lower states of consciousness.
How do dimensions of consciousness relate to our multidimensional physical reality?
As our consciousness expands, so does our perception of multidimensional realities. As multidimensional beings, we can access multidimensional realities by ascending to higher dimensions of consciousness.
