What is “normal” anyways?
The dictionary defines “normal” as “conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected.”
Conforming to a standard. Well, previously we followed the herd, went with the pack, watched the fashion, trend, style, etc.
Now that’s been shown not to work. We’re fast breaking the mould and we can’t hide it any longer.
Usual, typical, or expected. Nothing we do is any of that. We’ve stepped out of existing boundaries.
What are those boundaries?
Well, how about empirical materialism? The view that only what we can see, hear, touch and smell is real. I talk to archangels and galactic beings. I neither see them nor touch them. But they’re real to me.
Enlightenment is real enough to me that I sacrificed a Sociology Ph.D. rather than drop the subject and do a “normal” dissertation. That’s pretty real in its impact.
So we are not normal, if by normal you mean Third-Dimensional in standards and values.
But we are normal if by that you’re referring to Fourth or Fifth Dimensional standards and values. We’re what Linda Dillon calls “the New Normal.”
And as the New Normal, we need, in the beginning at least, to acknowledge and validate ourselves.
No one out there is going to validate us for listening to channeled galactic beings. No one out there is going to validate us for talking to angels. We need to do that ourselves.
Why is it important to talk about this subject anyways?
Because, as far as I can see, you can’t get to the higher states of consciousness without going through “normal.” So not only are we going to be “normal” as in a typical or usual aspect of a Fourth- and Fifth-Dimensional setting, but there’s another sense in which we’re “normal” and it’s important. Let me explain.
I once had a monstrous “Aha!” moment at an Enlightenment Intensive and looked to see where I ended up afterwards. And where I ended up was … oh, my gawd … feeling normal. It floored me. All that work and I only succeeded in … feeling normal???? Not totally blissed out? Not ecstatically rolling around on the floor?
But that was the case. And feeling normal was a wonderful experience: grounded, balanced, and centered. I had been subject to the ordinary, normal, will mood swings that people in a drama-loving society were subject to.
I saw at that point that one could not get to the higher spaces without coming back to the center, to the normal range of emotions. The doorway was through the center, the heart. The center, the heart is the gateway of bliss. Open the gate and bliss flows out. No trickle down there. A veritable and never-ending flood.
The range of emotion that can be considered normal is distinguishable from the range that can be distinguishable as abnormal. Anger is abnormal. Jealousy is. Greed is. On and on we could go.
Equanimity is the new normal and that’s to be found in the center, in the range of the normal. Tranquillity, harmony, peace – they’re all to be found when we stay within a “normal” range of emotion, in balance, in the center.
For decades, we’ve considered it quite fashionable to pooh-pooh the normal. Not us. Not by any means.
But by doing so, we alienate ourselves from noticing and validating the center, the balance point, the heart.
I saw that, without recovering this “normal” space, no higher-dimensional experience would last for any length of time. Bliss doesn’t like rough seas. It leaves until the seas calm down.
The subject came up in a discussion with a friend who has gone through a lot of the ridicule that we lightworkers know so well.
And all the time she thought of herself as “abnormal.” Now she sees that she’s normal. It’s just a higher-dimensional normal.
Third-Dimensional folks are normal in their Third-Dimensional way. And we’re normal, as well, in our Fourth- and Fifth-Dimensional way.
It’s a little hard for us, perhaps, to consider that love, bliss, and ecstacy can be “normal.” But of course on the Fifth and higher dimensions, they are.
And we’ve agreed to go first in experiencing and modelling them.
So welcome to the New Normal. You’re it.
