The Arcturians raised the subject recently of the fate of those who don’t choose to ascend or are incapable of adjusting to the more rarified atmosphere in the higher dimensions. (1)
In the past when I’ve been asked what their situation would be, I’d say that they’ll feel as if they’re unable to breathe in that more-rarified environment. So they’ll have to – and want to – stay behind. I’m thinking particularly of those we call “recalcitrants.”
The closest discussions I can find on the subject from a related field would be the evidence provided by afterlife commentators. They broadened my understanding of what would happen to one who tried to “go higher.”
I need to make it clear that these discussions fit for Third-Dimensional beings looking to go higher, for a visit, etc.
The Divine Mother has told us that this will not happen to those who ascend into the new realm of our post-Ascension world. We’ll be able to visit all the higher realms in our lightbodies.
But the same will not be the case for those who choose to remain in Third Dimensionality.
One last point before we begin.
Only on the Third Dimension do the “saint” and “sinner” rub shoulders together. On the Fourth Dimension, they’re sorted out, the “sinners” going to the Dark Planes and the “saints” to the Higher Summerlands. Or so things stood.
To the Fifth Dimension and Higher the “sinner” cannot gain entry. It’s precisely the processes described in this article that reveal the mechanism by which this sorting process occurs.
When we talk about the time of separation, the mechanism – the lack of ability to enter the higher realm – is described in what follows.
OK. Let’s let our informants tell us what would happen if a lower-dimensional person tried to go higher on the old astral planes. This same mechanism will cause the separation between the ascending consciousness and the unascending one.
T.E. Lawrence, “Lawrence of Arabia,” described how the lower-dimensional person would be kept out of the higher dimension.
He explained that not only would the air seem too rarified to the lower-dimensional person but the Light would be too intense for them to stand.
“Whatever our natural plane may be … to go up before one is ready means an air too rarified and light too intense to be borne. So each must go to his own place and stay there until development draws him up into a higher sphere.” (2)
In another place, he carried the discussion further:
“Should a man try to live in that rarified spiritual air [of a higher plane than Lawrence occupies] who carried still in his being the uncleansed stains of earth, his sufferings would be terrible, as intense as the joy of which he would be capable when he is cleansed of them.” (3)
Those “uncleansed stains of earth” are exactly what we’re addressing on this blog through advocating clearing our vasanas and forgiving others their trespasses.
Mike Swain testifies that he found the light of the higher realms too bright to be endured and so he had to vamoose the ranch.
“The worlds above us are even richer in light and happiness. If I go up there (and I can) I find it too bright; the light hurts my eyes. And the vibrations are so refined that I can’t respond to them! So I reverse gear and return to this world – which suits me just fine!” (4)
Harry Dodd in Paul Beard’s Living On suggests one lapses into a dreamy state if one goes too high. I had not heard this allegation before.
“One cannot rise much higher because one loses consciousness. Accompanied by someone of greater development, one can go farther afield; but, if one goes much higher than one’s own awareness, a dreamy state comes on and nothing registers clearly. I was taken traveling in this way so that I would understand it.” (5)
Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson describes what it’d be like for him to walk to the borders of a higher realm and then go inside a ways:
“As we draw towards a higher realm, … we see the land around us becoming more ethereal, more refined, and this forms a natural barrier to those of us who have not yet progressed sufficiently to become inhabitants of that realm. …
“To pass from this realm where I live to the next higher, I shall find myself walking along gently rising ground. As I proceed I shall see all the unmistakable signs – and feel them – of a realm of greater spiritual refinement.
“There will eventually come a point in my walking when I can go no further because I shall feel most uncomfortable spiritually. If I should be foolish enough to try to defy these feelings, I should, at length, find that I was completely unable to venture a foot forward without undergoing sensations which I could not possibly bear.” (6)
Not only would forward progress be impossible, but everything ahead of us would become invisible.
“I should not be able to see anything before me, only that which lay behind me. But whether we are standing at one of the boundaries, or whether we are well within the confines of our own realm, there comes a certain line in the bridge between the realms where the higher realm becomes invisible to less spiritual eyes.
“Just as certain light rays are invisible to earthly eyes, and certain musical sounds are inaudible to earthly ears, so are the higher realms invisible to the inhabitants of the lower realms.
“And the reason is that each realm possesses a higher vibrational rate than that below it and is therefore invisible and inaudible to those who live below it.” (7)
Nonetheless, arrangements can be made so that an individual can spend some time in a higher realm without being too uncomfortable.
The possession of a talisman, like a cloak or crystal, or the accompaniment of a more-evolved soul can buy us time with comfort in a higher dimension. If we are Third/Fourth-Dimensional in vibratory resonance – in pitch, as it were.
Monsignor Benson describes what some of the aids to visiting the higher planes were. In his time and astral place.
“When those of a lower realm travel to a higher, it is always by authority, either vested in the traveler, or in some other person of a higher sphere, who will act as an escort.
“In the former case, such authority takes the form of symbols or signs that are given to the holder, who will always and upon every occasion receive – even unasked – every assistance he may need.
“Many of these symbols have the power in themselves of preserving the traveler from the overwhelming effects of the higher spiritual atmosphere. The latter would not damage the soul, of course, but a soul thus unprepared would find itself in much the same situation as upon earth when one emerges into brilliant sunlight after a prolonged stay in complete darkness.
“But as in the case of earthly sunshine one can, after a suitable lapse of time, become again perfectly at ease in the normal bright light, it is not so in the case of the higher realms. There is no such adaptability there. The ‘blinding’ effect will be continuous to one of a lower state.
“But with a perfect dispensation, means are provided so that the visiting soul shall undergo no spiritual discomfort or unhappiness. And that is just what one would expect, since such visits are made for happy reasons, and not as tests of spiritual stamina and endurance.
“When it is necessary to make a journey to even higher spheres, it then becomes imperative, in many cases, that an inhabitant of those realms should, as it were, throw a cloak over his charge, in just the same way as Edwin, upon a lower scale, threw his protecting arms about us when we journeyed to the lower sphere.” (8)
So a talisman or guide could buy us time for a visit to the higher realms.
The “recalcitrants” who tried to ascend to or visit the higher realms would find themselves unable to endure even the borders of it. They’d quickly return to the comfortable and familiar Third Dimension. (9)
Nonethless the Company of Heaven are making every possible arrangement to have the greatest number of people ascend and so it becomes impossible to predict what the outcome will be.
But as the Arcturians point out, all of us here on the planet are already ascended. Once those still enmeshed in “power over others” divest themselves of those vasanas, they’d probably return to their native dimensions anyways.
I find it very difficult to predict how things will end. However, I do think it’s safe to predict that the most people possible will ascend.
