Occasionally, I get requests for articles from my newsletter subscribers, which I really appreciate! Here’s one I just received:
“Andrea, please just consider writing a blog on how to align and connect to the 5th dimension. Is there a simple way to state it so we can live from there?” – Dee
This request really got me thinking. Can living from fifth-dimensional consciousness be stated simply and concisely? Here’s my attempt.
1. Know your Soul Purpose. Our Purpose is at all times to live the authentic self-expression of our Soul, and so we must get to know ourselves at Soul-level. This is an ongoing process! Getting to know our Divine Soul-level gifts is key to creating an abundant and fulfilling human experience. Luckily, it’s not that hard to know our Purpose. (I think it gets overcomplicated a LOT!) I’ve got a free video series on the topic over at Your Purposeful Money Path, and of course I dive into Soul Purpose in detail within my readings.
2. Set clear intentions. We can’t leave the ego out of the picture. While the Soul most certainly is here to express itself into this human experience, the ego is the manager of this process. It is up to the ego to decide how we want to implement our Soul Purpose. The Soul sets the general direction. The ego decides on its practical implementation. The Soul and the ego truly must become partners in creating the life that we want – both as spiritual AND human Beings. The ego must be as satisfied as the Soul, because at the end of the day, we are just One Being, creating this experience!
3. Listen to inner guidance. Now that we know our Purpose, and the ego has set a clear intention on how it wants to make our Soul Purpose manifest, our intuition can guide us as to what practical action steps will create our desired reality. Guidance is information that comes from our Higher Self, our Soul. Guidance doesn’t always make logical sense to us, because our intuition comes from an aspect of ourselves that resides outside of linear time. Of course, that’s what also gives our Higher Self a bird’s eye view of our situation – one that our mind simply cannot give us! If you find yourself not taking action on guidance because you’re not sure about your own intuitive accuracy, I have a great free resource for you here.
4. Take congruent action. This is where I find many spiritually oriented people encounter their greatest challenge! When we work on connecting to fifth-dimensional consciousness, there’s a tendency to become ungrounded. We focus on our inner reality to the detriment of our third-dimensional circumstances. Let’s never forget that no amount of healing, clearing, or spiritual practice is a substitute for rolling up our sleeves and taking action towards what we want.
But what is “congruent” action? It is action that aligns with our intention, which aligns to our Soul Purpose. Congruence is when the Soul, the ego, and the physical body are in impeccable alignment with each other – which is exactly what makes manifestation occur.
Action speaks the loudest in this Universe, because it requires the most effort and thus also sends out the “loudest” energetic statement. Not only do we have to take actions that are congruent to our intention … we also have to STOP taking incongruent action! If, for example, you want to create your own business, going after that promotion at the job you despise would be incongruent action. This will inevitably make manifestation impossible. Taking business opportunities that have nothing to do with your purposeful self-expression JUST for financial gain would also be incongruent action. Creating business relationships in which you cannot be authentically self-expressed, just because you want the “connections” would be incongruent action.
Is all of this simple? Yes. Is it easy? Well … no. It’s not easy because we simply haven’t been brought up to live this way! Most of the world is still operating from a place of fourth-dimensional consciousness. It is up to us to have the courage to do things differently, in order to ground fifth-dimensional consciousness into our human experience!
