What do you think about these ideas . . . ? ~J

Much has been written in recent times – especially through 2012 – about our planetary “Ascension”. What exactly does the term mean? What is going on? To me it is an entirely natural evolutionary flow of the universe which although can be explained in scientific terms, can only really be grasped through spiritual realisation. To me, it is the movement of sentient life from one vibrational frequency of reality into a higher one. Along with a growing number of evolving people, I perceive Ascension is happening on Planet Earth right now as Gaia shifts her centre of consciousness into the 5th Density…

Natural organising energy

I can recall only one lecture from a Masters Degree in Natural Sciences. The rather flamboyant and world renown Professor Atkins strode majestically up to the board and wrote a huge “G” on it. “What does that stand for?” he demanded of the audience “free entropy!” shouted a brave student from the back row. “No!” bellowed Atkins back, “it stands for the Garbage written about it!”, upon which, the audience descended into raucous laughter!

I sometimes feel the same might be said of Ascension. It’s entirely understandable because it is a complex subject. Interestingly Ascension is entirely linked to the movement of free entropy. Imagine a building made of matchsticks and then pulling one from the foundation. The building will topple and the matchsticks scatter. There is an increase in ‘disorder’, which is an increase in free entropy. But at the same time, there is an ordering movement of negative entropy that wants to find a higher harmony from the constituent parts. This pull can be equated to Ascension.

It’s something I never really could grasp intellectually until I began to experience it myself following the events of a life threatening car crash in which I thought I would certainly die. As I surrendered attachment to life and with it internal fixed relationships to reality, the world I had become accustomed to bent, twisted and shattered around me. It is only then that I became able to feel and follow the underlying organising energy called Ascension and what science might call ‘an increase in neg-entropy’. Or alternatively, what spiritual seekers might call the pull of ‘unconditional love‘. To me, they are all one and the same.

The big bang

Take yourself back to the beginning of the universe for a moment. Close your eyes and imagine the point before which all of the physical universe came into being – before what science called the “big bang“. To me, there is nothing, where nothing is everything. And this nothing/everything has two possibilities: it can either remain in that state of pure presence or, it can subdivide into parts of itself. Given the state of infinite time – because at that point there was no time – then you have the absolute probability that both states will happen.

In other words, it is inevitable that pure presence will subdivide into parts of itself, where the ‘parts’ are consciousness, an awareness of relativity: “this” and “that”. This one underlying dynamic has shaped the entire universe. A chain reaction of internal sub-division caused a rapid explosion outwards. Or if looking from the whole of it, a rapid subdivision inwards, depending on ones perspective. Whatever and wherever the perspective you look from, there is the movement of energy, of consciousness, of light. They are all one and the same thing.

Over time, the spread outwards of “Separation Consciousness” to fill the universe with light, begins to condense into form because of the equal and opposite pull inwards of “Unity Consciousness“. You might consider yourself as the ‘creator’, casting a pebble into a universal pond which then creates ripples in space. The flow outwards on the surface is counterbalanced by an undertow back in to the source, thus creating standing waves, a metaphor which aptly describes densities of consciousness – Dimensions of Reality – that take shape within space.

Dimensions of Reality

Both science and spirituality have spoken of 11 dimensions in all. Personally I have many direct experiences of these and can feel them arrayed into three realms of consciousness: the Lower Realm enfolds the 1st, 2nd and 3rd densities which humanity mostly currently resides within. It is separated by a karmic bridge/barrier which I know as the 4th Density, leading to the Middle Realm enfolding the 5th, 6th and 7th densities. This in turn is separated by another bridge/barrier, the 8th density, leading to the Higher Realm of the 9th, 10th and 11th densities.

The contraction or ‘condensation’ of the universe into physical form seems to be taking the shape of what science is calling the “Torus”, which may be considered in the metaphoric form of an apple. In the centre is the source – a vortex of spinning emptiness – and spiraling outwards are the dimensions of increasing density, from 11 down to 1.

Form takes shape first in the outer densities, as the higher degree of disorder propels the gathering consciousness outwards like the centrefugal force of a washing machine.

Within each system of life that is created, there is inherent instability, which is caused by the pull of Unity Consciousness back to the source; an agitating, catalysing energy which is ever seeking out higher perfections. Over time, each harmonic system of life decays, falls apart and then re-orders itself according to a higher harmonic frequency. So progressively, life is drawn ever higher through the densities until it reunites with the source. This process of moving upwards in frequency is Ascension.

Gaia’s rebirth

In the meditation groups and courses that I run, awake and evolving people are tuning in and feeling this process happening for Gaia herself right now. I’ve worked with a number of sensitive and empathic women who can feel Gaia as if she’s giving birth to a New World in the 5th Density of the Middle Realm. It’s a truly miraculous and breath taking process to witness and feel. It coincides of course which many of the ancient prophecies such as that of the Mayans. Although much distortion and hype has been written, it feels very much as if that process will indeed complete towards the culmination of 2012.

What will that mean exactly for life here on Earth?
Well firstly it is vital to say that it won’t immediately end! Gaia is a multidimensional being and under usual circumstances, able to sustain life in both parallel worlds.

That said, the rate of consumption and destruction of the Earth’s surface here in the Lower Realm is accelerating at such a pace, it feels like various tipping points have been activated which could indeed bring life to a cleansing completion in a time frame that could be as little as two or three human generations, assuming current trends continue.

This may cause incredible sense of internal turmoil, emotion and resistance to what could take place here. But again, it is an entirely natural evolutionary process in the life of a star. Gaia has cleansed her surface five times in her past history, in order to allow a new harmony and balanced sense of ‘rightness’ to take on new form. It is this very process which is causing the old systems of consciousness in which we’ve lived, to fracture and fall a part right now. The strain under which we observe the current financial system is a classic example. An old disharmony of inequity and injustice must shatter in order for the pull of Ascension to reorganise a higher one.

The human story

Why is it then that our society seems not to observe or accept the idea of Planetary Ascension? It is because the physical aspect of the human body, which many identify with, is only designed to tune into three dimensions of reality: the physical Lower Realm. We are each bombarded with literally billions of bits of information every second and yet the average human brain can only process a very tiny proportion of this. To cope with the overload, the brain forms a map of the reality it has come to expect and filters out the rest of the information. Since our reality is shaped by what our consciousness is attuned to, then our experience can become severely limited, if all we’re doing is being engrossed in the world of physicality. In other words, we confine ourselves to what we experience only at the edge of the universal ‘pond’.

Whether we know it or not though, this underlying flow of Ascension is affecting every single thought feeling and emotion that we have. By our alignment with it, or our insensitivity, denial or resistance to it, every single action is shaped in our lives. It is the underlying flows of cause and effect as they pass through us that shapes the circumstances of life. The more conscious and aware of this process we become, the more harmonious our lives can become. As we begin to surrender the need to shape the external drama, then we engage onwardly the flow of Ascension, experienced as a heart felt pull or the landing of simple inner knowing…”This is how I must be now. This is what I must do now.”

When we align with this inner pull increasingly through the daily interactions of our lives, continually finding and centering in our higher aspects of beingness, then attachment to the lower densities unravels and our consciousness begins to expand and ascend through the dimensions. We experience this multidimensionality as a sense of interconnectedness with all life, an underlying flow which shapes the circumstances of our lives with benevolent intent. It feels increasingly harmonious, empowered and joyful.

The Five Gateways

We unfold through what’s been termed the “Five Gateways” of consciousness, and when the physical body falls away, there is no longer the need to reincarnate here. Our learning experience has been completed and the time has come for higher reality experiences in a finer density.

This is the invitation that the benevolent open hand of the universe is currently extending to humanity in these amazing times of powerful transformation. If we let go of the need to shape our lives, and attune to the unraveling, unfolding flow of Unity Consciousness we can feel as the soul within, then we’ll align with this movement and ride the wave into the higher paradigm. As the old structures of the lower density fall apart, we’ll continue our journey in the new realm on a Renewed Earth.

To me, this is the situation humanity and our planet currently finds itself in.

Ascension is our challenge and our opportunity.


Chris Bourne – At the age of 40, I was involved in a life threatening car crash in which I thought I would certainly die. This precipitated total inner surrender and a rapid reconnection with the conscious life force through all things.

I found myself suddenly able to experience and contemplate through multiple dimensions of reality to see the deeper purpose of life itself. It was then I began to fully realise my true reason for being here.

During the crash, time seemed to slow right down and I was guided back through key moments of my life. I was realising that every moment in our lives has but one underlying purpose – to reveal an aspect of truth about ourselves to ourselves. I was beginning to dissolve every belief and value our society had conditioned within me.

This was my initial awakening to the magical unifying consciousness of the soul. Over the eight years that followed, I was guided through four other inner ‘Gateways’ of consciousness. I have since come to know the process as the five key expansions on our journey of Enlightenment and ultimate Ascension into multi dimensional living – our divine birthright.

My consciousness expansion however did not end there. It continued to blossom and expand. I became acutely aware of a highly evolved, benevolent presence, working through the weave of life since the dawning of time itself. I have come to know this Group of Nine intimately. It guides my life and is the basis of Openhand itself.

    Yes Kibitzer 3 reflects my sentiments. It is the “Law of One” perspective (the 5 part book David Wilcock touts) from a personally-experienced Western intellectual angle. Ascension is as natural as long grass after the rain.

  2. kibitzer3 says:

    The Bourne through which a traveler returned. Good for him for making it back, and reporting so well on his experience, and understanding thereof, from his scientific-background perspective. (Personally, I like his description of Ascension as ‘an increase in negative entropy’.)

    A lot of words? Well, he could have said ‘Ah!’ to an Initiate, and let it go at that. But he is trying to make a difference with his experience. I give him credit for that. And what is each of US doing about the pressing matter at hand???

      “And what is each of US doing about the pressing matter at hand???”

      I have seen this sort of “back atcha” question posed to others at various lightworker and enlightened sites when someone disagrees or challenges on some level, the assumptions many of them share about ascension, dimensions, astral planes, higher wisdom, etc. It is an unproductive and petty way to respond to reasonable (or even unreasonable) dissension. Yes, the writer might be trying to do their part — and that’s fine. Each of US has the right to believe some or part or none of it. As I said, I think this writer has SOME truthful material here. My point was that there has been a crushing amount of “writing and words” (I reference a comment of mine in another thread with this thought) which, rather than illuminating the unawakened, has served to confuse a lot of people. It’s the nature of our limitation to language in getting our ideas across. Plus, these theories based on personal, metaphysical experience are inherently subjective. What they derive from this may overlap with others, but cannot be assumed as wholly true for all others. There is a very noticeable disconnect on some of this info among the several so-called experts and “insiders” out there right now. Most of us who have been reading and studying recognize this. There is not 100% consensus. And not everyone can be spot on that they have “THE” explanation. It’s very much like many of the world religions, which fall under one “name” but have many sects with varying doctrines. It is not different among the ascension community of believers.

      I wish the “illuminated” or “awakened” would stop snarking at people about what “THEY” are doing when they find reason to disagree. It’s so … un-ascended. And so typical of religious intolerance.

      I have expressed elsewhere among this reading community, in another article commentary thread, what I am doing about the pressing matter at hand. And I am giving benefit of the doubt to everyone here, that they are also doing what they — where they are at this time — can be doing.

        Glad to hear it, Peacer. And more power to you in that attitude.

        I hope you can understand that sometimes it appears that some people just snipe. I am glad to hear where you personally are coming from. Keep up the good work.

        ‘The Work’ needs all the help it can get.

    Lotsa words again. I don’t have a better way of conveying what might be “the truth,” but I can’t help recalling what the man Jesus taught; being that “for to such belongs the kingdom,” where he spoke of children. Children do not always act like they know, rather they are typically filled with wonder and ask questions — good questions. I’m reminded of a quote I saw somewhere recently that went something like this: “Follow those who seek the truth. Do not follow those who have found the truth.” I would attribute, but I don’t remember where or who. But it speaks volumes about attempting to define or explain “truth.” It troubles me when individuals claim knowledge about this universe (which Erwin Schrodinger called “one mind”) because of their NDE (near death experience) and/or special knowledge through “wise sages,” “councils,” “federations,” etc. It seems as unprovable as much of the stuff in many of the religions. Who really can assert the “truth” for all of us? Any man or woman? On what grounds? This individual does have some truthful material here, I think, but not “the truth.” We are all still pursuing this together, on our own.

    seems to be relevant to G-alactic O-rdering D-ynamic—–perhaps ?!!!

    After reading this entire article, what I find as credible could be capsulized into one paragraph! I certainly hope you didn’t have to pay this man for this bilge.
