When we are living from a 3D consciousness every choice we make is from the past. We use logic and reasoning to deduce the likelihood of every outcome of our choices based on what has happened in the past. We also make decisions based on our past conditioning, therefore it is our beliefs that dictate what our present choices will be and how they will turn out. Our past hurts, suffering and stories about our past and about who we were in the past and how that has shaped us in the present all reflect in what choices we make and what outcomes we achieve. Everything that we do, say or be in 3D is rooted in our past.
When we are living from a 5D consciousness we are living from the present. Nothing that has ever happened in our past or the past of our collective human existence has any baring or power over our current choices and actions and their outcomes. We are completely free from our past, from our beliefs, our stories and our conditioning, leaving us with a clean slate to create in every moment whatever life we choose for ourselves. We live moment to moment (present to present). When you have processed your past then you just know about stuff that has happened in your life, it feels like a distant memory, but most importantly it does not have any power over your current present day life. The past is not a story that needs to keep being recreated or re-lived, you are free from that and free to make new choices and experience new outcomes when you are living from a 5D consciousness.
The way to process your past is to own every part of it. Processing your past may feel like you are connecting with it even more strongly but what it does is integrates the energy (emotions, feelings, thoughts) of the events into your human physical being - the experience is then collected by your soul and you are free to move on to new experiences. If you have not processed your past, then it sits in your energy field, influencing your every move. It is often the experiences that were painful or embarrassing that we resist really owning or completely feeling. So we keep these past experiences at “arms length” hoping that we can forget them and never have to deal with them again. BUT they must be embraced, integrated and made to be a part of you, otherwise your soul will just keep leading you to similar experiences until it has been able to collect that experience. Whether it is grief, shame, anger, abandonment or any other emotion or feeling, your soul wants to experience all of it, and you need to own it.
When you have processed all the past experiences, then it feels as if your past has just been erased. You feel free, unencumbered, lighter and more able to make new choices and have new experiences. You can’t just skip to erasing your past without first processing and feeling everything that you haven’t wanted to feel or acknowledge before, but don’t worry this is a very quick step, it doesn’t have to be painful and slow, just a willingness to dive in and feel what needs to be felt and it can all be over and done with, in a matter of minutes.
When we live in the past we believe that things happened TO us. This means that we believe we are or were a victim to things out of our control. We had things happen to us by other people and this is a very dis-empowering place to be. When you own your experiences, you process them to be a part of you and then realise that everything happened FOR you, this is a very powerful place to be and you no longer live in fear of things happening to you, you realise that you create every experience exactly as you had planned to experience them.
When you live from 5D and live in the present you have a direct line to your future which is not held back or influenced by your past. This gives you unlimited options, no barriers or beliefs on what can and can’t happen. This is where you create your life from and your future can influence your present moment, depending on what opportunities are coming your way. But if you look at your future from the past then you project your stories, beliefs and hurts out into the future and create your future from your past. The past can only be repeated in the future if you are still living from the past with a 3D consciousness.
Living in 5D is so freeing as you are not held back by your past. Be willing to process your past so that you can be free and unencumbered, to create any future that you desire.
I believe that knowing who we are at our unique soul level holds the key to living an authentic and joyful life. Once we know who we are, we can begin to BE who we are, and then BECOME who we were always destined to be.
