Why is spirituality such a big part of some people’s lives, while it’s completely dismissed by others? Is it just their personal beliefs, or is there something more to it? There’s a polarization between the spiritual and the physical, and the reason is because we’re living in different realities.

Life after death is very real. Alternate dimensions are real. Spirits and energies are real. Anyone who has delved deep enough into different cultures will tell you just how real this stuff is. But to some people, it’s simply too far outside of their boxes, that they are unable to perceive the spiritual world or want anything to do with it.

Your perception of reality depends on your vibration. Your vibration determines which layers of information you’re able to access within this physical reality. Learning how to perceive spiritual phenomena is a muscle that needs to be worked. The more you work it, the more you begin accessing the fifth dimension, and the crazier this world becomes.

So let’s explore this phenomenon, and shed some light about how your vibration manifests the reality you’re experiencing.

The fifth dimension: The spiritual realm

The fifth dimension is an entirely different plane of existence to this physical reality. Commonly known as the spiritual realm or astral planes, the fifth dimension is an independent plane of our physical universe, which we understand as the third dimension.

Although these planes of existence are separate in nature, energetically they are tied together. That means what happens here has an effect on your soul nature within the fifth dimension, and things that happen in the fifth dimension can manifest through and affect the third dimension.

If you were entirely in five-dimensional reality, you wouldn’t be here on this planet — as the fifth dimension is energetic in nature. It’s not a physical place you can go, it’s something you connect with energetically, and something you’re always tethered to.

Even though you can access the fifth dimension via spiritual practices such as meditation, ego death, and plant medicines, if your consciousness is completely in the 5th dimension, your body would be a vegetable here. That’s why we can get sneak previews, but not stay there. Sooner or later, we have to come back.

Below are some articles regarding this dimension of experience. But to learn about five-dimensional reality and how we access it, read on.

The third dimension: Disconnection from soul

The third dimension signifies the carnal realm. Think of it as living in the matrix, as it’s a more superficial layer of reality. A deep level of awareness has not been discovered, so people are governed by their deep-rooted patterns, programs, and conditioning, and live life caught in this game.

Mostly, humanity has existed within a construct of the third dimension. This is where survival, war, destruction, greed, poverty, and suffering are commonplace. The third dimension is a dense version of physical reality where there are a lot of difficulties, but also a lot of soul growth.

In the three-dimensional construct, souls are fairly disconnected from the source, which vicariously creates more individuality. This is why our world is so diverse. We have monarchies and dictatorships, nations, cultures, diverse jobs and lifestyles. Everyone’s just trying to make it work, and nobody knows how to.

The third-dimensional reality manifests via a low vibration of the collective consciousness. As with all planes of existence, the reason why the third dimension exists is to provide another platform for consciousness to experience itself.

Imagine a three-dimensional reality as that hard-ass teacher you had in high school, where it was never fun, but you learned the most. It’s not always fun to experience, but effective. So the third dimension is not bad, it’s just dense, meaning there’s more suffering, and also more learning through that suffering.

Five-dimensional reality: Thinning of the veil

Five-dimensional reality can be seen as an intersection point between physical reality (the 3rd dimension), and the spiritual realm (the 5th dimension). Essentially, it’s when you start tapping into the spiritual dimension while still grounded in reality.

The best way to understand five-dimensional reality is to think of it as if you’ve escaped the matrix, and have begun accessing the spiritual dimensions. The method to access five-dimensional reality is through vibration. The language of the universe is vibration — which works on both a collective level and an individual level. You can understand vibration as the key to accessing deeper levels of reality than what meets the eye.

The higher your vibration raises where you begin tapping into deeper levels of the human experience, the more the spiritual dimension intersects. On the other hand, the lower your vibrational state, the further you’re energetically distancing yourself from the spiritual dimension — as low-vibrational energy corresponds with the third dimension.

Tapping into the spiritual realm

The best way to look at it is that dimensions overlap like you’re stacking sheets of paper. The distance hasn’t changed at all, but we need to tune into vibration to penetrate the other pieces. Vibration is the key to accessing higher dimensions, as they are energetic.

So when you’re in a low vibration, spirituality doesn’t exist, because there’s no energetic connection to higher planes of existence. In this sense, reality becomes more malleable the more your energetic frequency rises. When you raise your vibration, your consciousness expands, while a low vibration retracts your consciousness.

That’s why people who are well into their spiritual craft keep their energetic input and output as clean as possible, to access this higher realm of information that most people aren’t receptive to.

So in saying that, a psychic might have access to a pretty incredible quality of information. But if that same psychic were to lower their vibration and move more into the 3rd dimension, they wouldn’t have access to any of this information — as it no longer exists within their reality. Suddenly they’re in the shadow side, which is a psychotic person who’s losing their grip on reality.

To someone in a low vibration who looks at a psychic, they’re probably going to assume they’re delusional. But if that same person raises their vibration where five-dimensional reality starts to seep through, they’re going to understand completely.

Low vibrational experience & associations (trapped in the matrix)

A low vibration is associated with a dense reality. This means that a low vibration is associated with suffering and negativity. It’s a disconnection from the soul, meaning the realm becomes much more carnal. On a collective scale, a low vibration creates a dystopian society, which leans towards a hell world. Below are some things that are associated with a low vibration.

  • Retraction of consciousness
  • Closemindedness
  • Negativity
  • Suffering
  • Sickness
  • Pain
  • Struggle
  • Poverty
  • corruption
  • Scarcity
  • Limiting belief systems
  • Harmful thoughts and mentalities
  • Destructive behavior
  • Selfishness
  • Greed
  • Unconscious habits
  • Toxic attitudes
  • Mental illness
  • Survival
  • Ego

High vibrational experience & associations (escaping the matrix)

A high vibration is associated with a light reality. This means that a high vibration is associated with love and joy. It is to deepen the connection with the soul, which as a result, spiritual constructs become much more prominent. On a collective scale, a high vibration creates a utopian society, which leans towards a heaven world. Below are some things that are associated with a high vibration.

  • Expansion of consciousness
  • Open-mindedness
  • Positivity
  • Personal growth
  • Wellness
  • Thriving
  • Love
  • Happiness
  • Joy
  • Gratitude
  • Community
  • Abundance
  • Virtuous behavior
  • Service
  • Mindfulness
  • Spirituality

Understanding Vibration: Keys to deeper levels of reality

Your vibration is your state of consciousness. All energy has a quality to it, ranging from low-vibrational to high-vibrational. The higher the vibration, the more heavenly the experience of consciousness becomes, while the lower the vibration, the more hellish the experience of consciousness becomes.

Beyond the layers of flesh, blood, and bone, everything is energetic in nature. Bottom line — all reality (and other realities) is made up of energy. Therefore, everything that we experience resonates at different energetic frequencies. Your emotions, thoughts, feelings, attitudes, what you consume, the connections you make, and everything has a different energy quality.

For example, anger is a low-vibrational energy, as it’s painful, undesirable, and for lack of a better word, primitive. This doesn’t mean that anger is bad to experience, or that you should avoid it, but the energy is of a lower quality than something like gratitude.

If you have negative thoughts, beliefs, or attitudes that cause suffering of any kind, they will lower your vibration. As a result, your reality starts to become more dense as you become more disconnected from the source, and reality becomes more three-dimensional.

The magic you’re experiencing when life is beautiful and you’re so grateful for having this experience — gets flipped on its head, and suddenly life goes back to hard mode. Why? Because your vibration has changed. When your vibration changes, so does the reality you experience.

The link between vibration and collective consciounsess

All consciousness is energetically connected, as we are all segments of the same consciousness (god) experiencing oneself. Therefore, no event is isolated.

Your healing also helps heal the collective consciousness. Other people’s trauma affects your consciousness. In order to understand five-dimensional reality, you need to understand that we’re all energetically connected in a big web (called the collective consciousness), and that reality is the manifestation of this collective consciousness.

The growing polarization in society is because a lot of people are raising their vibration and connecting with five-dimensional reality, while others are trapped in the third dimension, and aren’t aware that there’s a whole other dimension beneath our feet.

On a collective scale, the more people who wake up and move to the five-dimensional reality by raising their vibrations, the entire collective also moves towards this heavenly construct where life becomes a spiritual playground, rather than a carnal hellscape made by humans, to exploit humans.

So through everyone’s individual process, we influence the collective. If there’s enough negative energy in the collective, we’re going to see more shifts into the third-dimension, more suffering, more disconnection.

The spiritual tug of war: Influencing the collective

If you feel like you’re moving between realities a lot right now, there are collective influences at play that could be responsible — aside from your processes.

There are forces at play trying to prevent people from raising their vibration via fear-porn, division, propaganda, manipulation, transhumanism, and all the dirty work you can think of. The elite class knows that if enough people wake up to the reality that we’re in an astral world, residually, the entire collective is going to shift. This means game over for the powers that be. They can’t do their dirty work if there’s no dirt in the reality to work with.

On the other hand, you have a huge international movement of spiritual awakening. People are waking up, and trying to illuminate to people who are caught in the matrix that there’s a lot more than what meets the eye. Currently, we live in a very divided world, but more people are waking up to their spiritual nature every day.

It’s a spiritual tug-war at the moment, and the more we help others do the healing and raise their vibrations, the more we’re anchoring heavenly frequencies into Earth, the new reality will stabilize, and the vale will thin between these dimensions.

5th dimensional reality and spirituality: What’s the connection?

When we move into high-vibrational states of consciousness, spirituality becomes undeniably real. This is because the vale starts thinning between the third dimension and the fifth dimension, which is where five-dimensional reality comes into play.

People who are in low-vibrational states of consciousness, will not perceive the spiritual dimension because they’re disconnected from their soul nature (otherwise, caught in the matrix). It’s not that they’re wrong, because, in that particular reality, spirituality does not exist — as their state of consciousness is so disconnected from the source.

You might notice this phenomenon in yourself when you shift between these constructs. Sometimes life will launch you back into a low-vibrational state, and you’ll need to do the shadow work to reconnect with the source.

While in that state, you might start doubting yourself or feel like you’re regressing into old belief systems and perceptions. You’re not going crazy, and everything you experienced was real, but while in that state, it’s not, because you’re literally in a different reality.

Your consciousness shifts into the third dimension of learning. It shifts into the fifth dimension to serve. Along your journey of spiritual growth, there will be times that you go back into the third dimension and have to experience the struggle and learn what you need to learn particular lessons. But trust that once you’ve learned those lessons, you’ll shift back towards the fifth dimension.

The law of attraction: How it’s related to vibration

I’m sure you’ve heard about the law of attraction before. The quality of energy you give out is the quality of energy you will receive. This law is rooted in vibration, which is also associated with karma.

Essentially, the teachings suggest that if you raise your vibration, you start manifesting a high-vibrational life. This comes in the form of abundance, quality connections, positive emotions, and everything that’s associated with the higher self, and an expanded consciousness that can tap into the fifth dimension.

How to change your vibration

Your vibration is a spectrum, and throughout your life, it fluctuates. We are still human and have human lives to live, which does involve some hardships. We can’t just have our heads in the clouds all the time, it would be way too easy that way.

The more you work on raising their vibration and creating a lifestyle around it, the more sustainable a high vibration becomes. So if you want to know where you currently sit, let’s identify some characteristics of both a low and high vibration below.

Become more heart centered

One of the most important things you can do is to become more heart-centered. When you live from your heart, you can’t really go wrong as the heart is the seat of the soul.

A high vibration corresponds with being at service. When you love someone, you want to support them unconditionally. That is the feeling of being at service. However, instead of being for a lover, family member, or pet, apply that same feeling to everyone and everything.

Unconditional love is service, and if you’re experiencing that, you’re shifting toward a five-dimensional reality.

Watch what you put into your body

Like us, everything has energy — meaning we absorb the vibration of anything we consume. Eating junk food, taking drugs, sweet drinks, and generally having an unhealthy intake is going to reduce your vibration because you’re absorbing many things with a low vibration.

Therefore, keep it clean, like fruit, plants, and food direct from the source — full of life energy. Drink lots of fluoride-free water, and keep it pure. Avoid taking drugs or alcohol if you can. Be conscious about what you’re putting into your body. What is your current intake like? What do you put in your body on a daily basis? Do you keep it clean, or is there room for improvement?

Gravitate towards high-vibrational emotional states

By dwelling in negative states of resentment, anger, hatred, guilt, shame, and all those nasty emotions you don’t want to have, your vibration lowers. When you express more positive emotions such as love, gratitude, hope, forgiveness, and excitement, your vibration rises.

You can’t just avoid experiencing low-vibrational emotions, but you can actively work on your energetic output so that you do experience more of these high-vibrational emotions. What sort of emotions and feelings do you regularly have? Do you spend a lot of time feeling negative, or do you mostly feel good and positive? What are some emotions you want to experience more, and how are you going to do it?

Correct your belief systems

Like emotions, beliefs carry a lot of energy and also have a significant impact on your vibration. That’s why it’s important to look at your belief systems, to see if you’re carrying negative and harmful perceptions that create negative energy.

Some examples of negative belief systems are limiting beliefs, believing people or the world is a bad place, that life sucks, etc. To raise your vibration, work towards developing healthier belief systems that inspire positivity, growth, and positive emotions.

Have you spent much time inspecting your belief systems? Are they holding you back, or aiding your growth as a person? What are some beliefs you would like to adopt? What are the most painful beliefs you still carry?

Live consciously

Unconsciousness is the gateway to a low–vibrational existence. Living consciously is your gateway to raising your vibration. Practice being present, and here in the now.

When you feel boredom, anxiety, and stress — bring your awareness back to the present moment. By sitting with the experience of consciousness, you leave no room for negativity to seep in and infect your vibrational state.

By bringing awareness into your everyday life and living consciously, you’re going to start breaking down old patterns and structures that don’t serve you anymore, which will help you raise your vibration and get away from the trap of 3D reality.

Be aware of the people you spend your time with

People emit energy, and we absorb that energy. If you’re spending time around negative people, or in a toxic environment, your vibration will lower because you’re constantly being influenced by other people’s low vibrations. It’s important to be around healed people who are growing and on a spiritual path, so you have good influences to absorb.

Not to say you can’t spend time around low-vibrational people, whether they’re family, childhood friends, or coworkers, but you should limit it and be conscious about it. Think about the people you spend the most time with. Is it your family, friends, partner, workmates? Think about their attitudes, behaviors, and influence. Are they really people you should be giving your energy to and taking it from?

Practice a spiritual craft

One of the quickest ways to raise your vibration and sustain it, is by practicing spirituality — in your own way! Not saying you need to become religious or become a yogi if you’re not into it. Find what resonates with you!

Maybe you can make a habit of meditating, or go to regular ceremonies happening in your area. Through regular breathwork, or exploring different things. Perhaps develop your psychic abilities (that we all have in the 5th dimensional realm), or pray regularly if you feel good doing it.

Find your own spiritual pathway and make a habit of practicing it. As you get deeper into that pathway, you will notice your vibration raising, and spirituality becoming a more prominent aspect of reality.
