I think a lot of us are expecting to find that once we’re in the Fifth Dimension, we’ll immediately have full consciousness, along with the various other miracles we’ve heard associated with Ascension.
I’m less and less sure that that’s an accurate view of things.
We’ll certainly have a tremendous opening in consciousness, I’m sure, but not the full Fifth-Dimensional experience of Sahaja Samadhi. Sahaja is a permanent heart opening and is considered moksha or liberation by terrestrial sages like Ramana Maharshi.
The Divine Mother has confirmed that Sahaja comes a few subplanes into the Fifth Dimension.
Let’s listen to her first confirm that Sahaja corresponds to what we formally think of as “Ascension.”
Steve Beckow: I’m trying to understand what level of enlightenment Ascension corresponds to. And I think it’s beyond the normal seventh-chakra enlightenment. I think it is what is called — and I’ll make this clear to readers — sahaja samadhi. Am I correct?
Divine Mother: Yes, it is beyond what you think of with your seven chakras. It is beyond, because what you are doing with the chakra system, even with the thirteen, we have emerged from the Third-dimensional realm, which is that reference point for the chakra system, into the new. So yes, you are correct, in this question and in this statement. (1)
Now let’s listen to her state that Sahaja occurs further into the Fifth Dimension than the first subplane or vestibule.
Steve Beckow: Mother, when does Sahaja Samadhi occur?
DM: It occurs with a more gradual awakening and lifting up. So there is the abrupt “I am not the same,” then there is the working and the anchoring, the integration, then there is another jump, and another jump, and another jump. And you don’t know it — well, some of you do — but you are leap-frogging. And then you will be there.
SB: Now, are those jumps equivalent to sub-planes?
DM: You can think of it as sub-planes, dimensional sub-planes, yes. (2)
So we ascend (or enter the Fifth Dimension) before “full consciousness” (Sahaja). (3) I point this out to prevent many people “ascending” to the Fifth but not experiencing “full consciousness” yet and feeling disappointed. Hopefully some will remember that we discussed it.
So far what we’ve seen is a gradual ascent. Blasts of love energy are coming our way and elevating all our consciousnesses, but slowly. Archangel Michael confirms that here:
“Now, you say that the human beings have not experienced the full awakening, the [Sahaja] Samadhi. And that is so. But there has been a gradual — well, from your point of view, gradual; not from ours — a gradual awakening and massive expansion within each of your beings.
“And the areas of concern, of focus, of how you feel, the shift from your mental and your emotional to your heart consciousness has continued to grow, so that more and more you are anchored, sometimes knowingly and sometimes not, more clearly than ever in the fifth reality.” (4)
Planes or dimensions have twelve subplanes each and not all of what we expect to happen when we enter a plane happens in the first subplane.
The best example I can think of is with the Mental Plane in the afterlife. The Mental Plane corresponds to what we call the Fifth Dimension; it’s simply a different name for it.
People don’t enter into “full consciousness” when they enter the first subplane of the Mental Plane.
They must go through the Judgment and Second Death before they find themselves in their lightbody, with full consciousness. (5)
The Judgment is a full-life review, which we conduct with our guides and spiritual director. It’s a wrap-up of the last life and a noting of what lessons lie ahead, in the next incarnation. Here is an unnamed communicator looking back on hers:
“When I saw myself – saw the mistakes, the wrong thinking and wrong doing of my earthly life – the revelation filled me with dismay. It is this last discerning of our own earthly lives that fulfills the old teaching of the ‘judgment day.’
“Remember that every good act, every loving, unselfish service, is registered upon the spirit and helps to prepare a brighter future for the soul when it arrives here. Why will the earth people be so blind? How can we emphasize more strongly the truth, that mortals are preparing their future lives now, and that their heavenly state is for them to choose?” (6)
The Second Death is the dissolution of the astral body, leaving us in our lightbody. It isn’t a death so much as a birth. Here is an unknown teacher in the afterlife describing his:
“When one advances through the various levels of the higher planes, there is an initiation which takes place which allows the soul to shed his ‘outer layer’ (as when he shed the physical body). The heavier matter which makes up your coat for one level is shed for a lighter coat when you move to the next. You shed your old beliefs and lessons and attune to your new body, a little like a snake shedding its skin.” (7)
But the point is that afterlife residents enter fully into the life of the Mental Plane or Fifth Dimension only after passing beyond the first subplane.
I think it’ll be the same for us. My best guess is that “full consciousness” will come a number of subplanes in.
Once we enter the Fifth Dimension, I think we’ll continue our slow ascent or evolution, with remarkable milestone events like Sahaja along the way.
Our slow, evolutionary ascent will never stop until we and God are in all ways One again.

Archangel Michael also confirmed it:
Steve: We ascend before Sahaja Samadhi and my understanding is that Sahaja Samadhi is the time in which the bliss becomes permanent? Have I got that correct?
AAM: You have that correct. (Archangel Michael to Steve Beckow in a personal reading through Linda Dillon, Feb. 5, 2016.)
(3) The term “full consciousness” is a misnomer. Our consciousness does not become full until we merge again with God, a long way past the Fifth Dimension.
