We are programmed to function and operate in only 3D from birth. Mostly everything we encounter in our physical, social, economic, educational, and religious experience teaches us and molds us to sustain a 3D existence. This is due to the needs of the capitalist economy we were born into and the matrix created to fulfill those needs. As we become enlightened, and eventually awake, we move from 3D to 5D. We can only make this move by releasing all of those things we were taught and conditioned to believe we “NEED” in 3D.
Most of these “needs” are so deeply embedded in our subconscious minds, that we don’t even realize that we are holding on to thoughts and routines that are no longer serving us. It can be scary to literally disrupt the foundation of our physical existence….on purpose, by letting go of the things we have been taught since our formative years (I need a job to earn money. I need money to survive. I need a spouse or children to fulfill my purpose for being created). However, by gradually defining the basis of our own lives, and deciding what WE truly believe, want, and need, we evolve into beings who are less physical and more spiritual in existence. By straddling the fence, so to speak, we delay our progress in this evolutionary process. So in short, we hold on because we fear letting go. We fear having to go through the work of redefining our foundational beliefs. We fear looking crazy to other people. We fear…..the unknown.
Living in 5D, means knowing that you don’t have to know all the answers at any given moment, but understanding that you have all of the answers inside of you all the time and exactly how to access that infinite wisdom at any given moment. We are taught that life is hard. We must struggle, work hard, earn our stripes, pay our dues…in order to be successful. But this couldn’t be further from the truth! We are supposed to experience the fullness of life as spiritual beings and enjoy the abundance of this physical experience. We are told that life is short. When death comes, it’s all over… Lies! Death is only an illusion. We come back again and again. In the meantime, we are still alive, in 4D. The problem is, when we come back again, we are reset. Reprogrammed into this 3D existence with a 3D state of mind to begin the process again- releasing and reconstructing our mental programs in order to return to our truest form of Self. Our higher self. Our completely etheric being. So in a nutshell, habit and fear keep us from letting go of 3D.
Like any other habit, you release 3D tendencies by replacing them with more suitable, 5D strategies, one step at a time.
