I’m back in normal consciousness again. Even the bliss has subsided. These experiences are not enlightenment. In my case it was an incomplete experience, lacking the “beingness” component of realization.
These experiences are also transitory and Ascension will not be transitory. These are glimpses of things to come, at least in the context of Ascension.
I’ve emerged from it tired again. In being lifted to a higher-conscious state, if only briefly, it appears that a lot of energy is called upon.
Each one of these experiences in the old days would repay years of spiritual effort. (Oh, there is a touch of bliss again. A small whisper of the divine. And oh, look, bliss returns on the in-breath. I suppose I’m not quite finished with it yet.) They either afford a glimpse into another realm as mine did. Or they attend a realization and cause a paradigm shift often, such as creates a new breakthrough in science or another field.
They can leave traces but not always. More often, they increase our overall spiritual knowledge.
During one spiritual experience at a meditation retreat, I had an experience of my higher-dimensional self, the self that I am when not on assignment, so to speak. And that was a profound experience for me. The only word I’ve ever found to describe it was “regal.” And I knew what it meant to move without moving, do without doing.
This one was probably something given to boost my enthusiasm, give me a small glimpse into what’s to come and contextualize the whole of our journey.
By contextualizing our journey, I mean that it allowed me to see the whole of the data and message of this blogsite. And seeing that, I saw that everything we talk about here is an aspect of life as we’ll know it on the other side of this jump.
I notice I’m left with an easy smile on my face. That may be the trace that remains of this experience. Do send along yours as we ramp up to higher-dimensionality. In reality all spiritual journeys are both sudden and gradual. The build-up is gradual but the experience is usually sudden. So will it be in our overall journey probably.
