Most of us are conditioned to view reality as a stable, solid framework of existence. We believe it to be an independent, tangible place occupying a concrete location within the space-time continuum. Naturally, such a place is governed by the constant and strict laws of physics. It would appear that we have a built-in sensory filtering mechanism, which allows us to discern and, therefore, respond to the real experience only. What is typically understood as real is an event occurring within the spectrum of existence defined by physical matter, which we can clearly see, touch, and taste while in the waking state of awareness. All other types of occurrences that do not fit into that narrowly defined paradigm are automatically discarded as "other", relegating the remaining experiential data to the category of phantasy, dreams, imaginary projections, and otherwise mystical or inexplicable phenomena. Due to their elusive, nebulous, and ethereal nature we consider the latter type of encounters to be less real and consequently not valid. Those among us that do not conform to the generally accepted idea of mass consensus reality are labeled as outcasts and may even be considered clinically insane. It is a known fact, however, that the mind does not distinguish between the so called real and simulated stimuli, as has been demonstrated by many experiments. There are cases wherein hypnotized subjects were convinced through the sheer power of subliminal suggestion that they were burned with various devices. Subsequently, they produced very authentic skin blisters consistent with burns, despite never coming into contact with a hot substance or object(click here for additional sources). Similar results were achieved when psychic and hypnotist Stephen Robinson conducted an experiment in one of his classes, telling a group of hypnotized individuals that they ingested Ipecac syrup after they were given plain fresh water. This caused nausea and vomiting in the participants. Additionally, the medical community widely recognizes the veracity of psychosomatic symptoms caused by the imbalances in the patients' psyche. The pain and suffering are real, even if a direct physiological cause cannot be determined. Many are also familiar with the placebo effect where ingesting a simple sugar pill can cure a disease in a subject who believes that they are getting life saving medicine. Such experiential outliers challenge our usual cut and dry perceptions and definitions of reality, especially as there is increasingly more corollary evidence being documented, linking the mind and the observable manifestation of its effects. Undoubtedly, these irregularities warrant further exploration of what's real and what isn't. How do we tell the difference between the two? And lastly, are such distinctions of any consequence at all?
Relatively recent discoveries in quantum physics place many of our previously accepted assumptions under additional scrutiny. For instance, we now know that atoms comprising everything from the body we use to carry us through life, to the kitchen sink and the dishes in it, are but a swarm of infinitesimally tiny particles constantly vibrating relative to each other. If the physicists are correct, and atomic structure is 99.99999999999999% empty space, then every single piece of matter is mostly empty space as well. Yet we do not walk through walls or float on air. The reason we do not fall through the floor is that the particles we are made of never touch the particles of the floor when we stand or walk on it. The charge of the electrons in the atoms of the floor magnetically repels the charge of the electrons within the atoms of our body, so in actuality, we are levitating on an electrostatic field!(B. Kross, Jefferson Lab) The expansion of our overall grasp of the world around us has resulted in a paradigm shift toward the understanding that reality is closer to a holographic idea construct than a rigidly contained material structure. Did this shift occur because the very nature of reality changed, or is it a simple byproduct of the change in our cognition? The short answer is both. The old adage 'perception is reality' rings especially true, considering how our beliefs about what constitutes reality alter our perception of it. When discussing the structure of reality it is important to distinguish between the macro and micro levels. The micro level reality is a type of an artificially closed system(I say artificially because no system is truly closed), set up within a larger framework. It is designed to be self-contained to preserve a certain purity of the experiment by imposing strictly defined parameters within a controlled environment. Optimal conditions are maintained in order to observe and produce conclusive, incontrovertible data. While the micro system has little room for variation due to its intentionally rigid structure, the macro system isn't bound by any limitations and can, by definition, contain countless numbers of such micro systems of endless variety. For instance, an experiment may be carried out in a lab-like setting under a strict set of guidelines, isolating specific compounds while applying fixed pressure and/or temperature controls. The behavior of the compounds in those conditions may display specific patterns of interaction or chemical reactions, or may reveal other previously unknown characteristics, thus producing valuable, valid data. However, the same compounds may deliver very different, perhaps even contradictory findings when the previously imposed restrictions are lifted or modified. Does this mean that one of the experiments yielded erroneous measurements in the study of the aforementioned compounds, while proving the other to be true? Not at all. Both sets of data are perfectly correct when observed within the specified frame of reference.The logical conclusion then is that the compounds themselves are neutral by nature, and their potential characteristics, function, and range of capabilities are determined by the conditions placed upon them by the observer conducting the experiment. What if we gave these compounds names like Donna, Bill, or Jackie? How would that affect our view and interpretation of the experiment? And who would be the mysterious observer in this hypothetical scenario? Although most of us accept that the observable universe is all there is, within the vastness of the multidimensional nature of existence, physical reality is but one such minute aspect. Because the only objective of existence is to exist, it is driven to fulfill this inalienable and insatiable urge by exploring all possible ways through which this ambition may be accomplished. Such an inherently limitless need and capacity for variation underscores an important distinction between the actual structure of reality and the experience that can be simulated and observed within a multitude of narrowly defined systems, artificially segregated within the larger framework. It's important to reiterate that any one of these experiences in of itself is perfectly valid as long as it is viewed in its proper context. Another important distinction worth noting is that valid in this case does not necessarily mean empirically true. There are innumerable types of distinct organizational configurations within the multifaceted structure of All That Is, which are bound by completely different(and sometimes contradictory) sets of rules. While some may be totally incomprehensible and altogether foreign to the native physical experience we are so familiar with, these expressly varied manifestations of Creation are equally valid. None are better or worse, or more or less true, but simply serve as multifarious reflections of the infinitely complex nature of existence as a whole.
We take it for granted that Newtonian physics, commonly known as classical mechanics, is universal and unimpeachable. The field of quantum mechanics, however, is offering a much different interpretation of reality, which in terms of the big picture appears to be closer to the truth. Even within the fabric of the physically observable universe the same person might experience reality much differently if the seemingly constant conditions, such as gravity and time structure are altered, according to Einstein's theory of special relativity. What does this mean in practical terms? Let's consider a hypothetical scenario of time dilation, as portrayed in the 2014 Christopher Nolan epic Interstellar. The story is set in the bleak future where a team of NASA scientists embark on a space odyssey to assess the viability of two potentially suitable worlds that might sustain human life. This is done in a desperate attempt to save the downtrodden mankind from painful, yet certain demise. The selected planets happen to be in close proximity to Gargantua, a massive black hole. While visiting planet A(an ocean world), the cosmonauts' time there is severely altered by the immense gravitational pull of Gargantua. As a result, every hour on planet A is equal to 7 Earth years. Due to some unforeseen complications, time spent retrieving the needed data ended up costing our explorers 21 years in a matter of 3 hours. It's important to point out that the astronauts' perception of time remained unchanged. They did not feel time speed up for them while on this planet, which means that an hour still lasted 60 minutes, and each minute consisted of exactly 60 seconds. It was only after they were outside the event horizon of the black hole that this time disparity became apparent. With the first mission having ended in a failure, the astronauts must now travel to planet B, with their fuel reserves running low. In a predictable Hollywood fashion, they save the day by calculating how to use Gargantua's gravity as a propulsion slingshot(whatever that means). The power of their remarkable genius gets them to their intended destination with the remaining fuel, although they end up losing another 51 years in the process, due to the powerful force of the black hole. Through many entertainingly adventurous plot twists only one of the team members named Cooper manages to complete the mission. The character makes it back from his space voyage in one piece, albeit a staggering 80 earth years after having set out on his fantastical journey, making him 124 years old upon his return. As one might imagine, this alters Cooper's sense of reality in a very profound way. While our space traveler has hardly aged, his daughter Murphy, who was 10 at the time of Cooper's departure, is at the death's door, with her children and grandchildren gathering around to say their good byes. Most would agree that leaping forward 80 years in 36 months is the very definition of time travel. If you consider that 80 years ago the year was 1937, you may also be aware of the significant changes and technological advancements that occurred within that timeframe. Not surprisingly Cooper returned to a much different world, as the life he left behind no longer existed. Although this is a fictitious interpretation of time dilation, the science behind the story is solid and sound and checks out thanks to Kip Thorne, the theoretical physicist who worked both as the scientific consultant and executive producer on the project. While this kind of scenario makes us reconsider our assumptions about time as an absolute linear structure, it also shows that our perception of reality varies depending on our point of view. It comes to reason then that reality is not quite as rigidly fixed as we might imagine, and only exists as a perception within the mind of an observer. This observation will change depending on the position of the said observer at any given time. After all, if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to see it, can we be certain that it really happened?
In 1801 Thomas Young conducted the double slit experiment wherein he demonstrated the duality of light, proving that it can simultaneously exhibit the properties of the wave and the particle, thus existing in two states at once. Young used a closed box with an opening in the front panel, an additional double-slit panel inside, and a photographic tape on the back wall.
A light source was then used to direct photons through the slits in the box, while the tape mapped out the pathway of the light. One of the interpretations of the findings is known as the relational interpretation of quantum mechanics, which establishes a correlation between the intent of the observer and the behavior of the particles' trajectory. What Young found was that if he was not attached to a specific outcome, the light would split, passing through both slits, thus acting as a wave. However, if he was interested in observing the pathway of the light in a specific pattern, the photon trajectory would be altered in line with the scientist's expectation, making the light act as a stream of particles. Further variations of this experiment have been carried out by the physicists using electrons and molecules, confirming the original findings and proving that the relational interpretation is applicable to all types of particles. The groundbreaking implication of this experiment is that all matter is governed by the probability function, which means that unless the particle is observed, its state remains uncertain. In other words, the particle simultaneously exists in all probable states until measured by an observer. Let me remind you that everything we perceive is made up of such particles, including ourselves. Using this revolutionary premise as a starting point, another physicist Hugh Everett formulated the Many Worlds theory. Everett reasoned that due to the probable nature of future events there are a number of built in variations, all of which have the potential for actualization. Because we only recognize as real that which we can perceive with our senses, any probable event must become a physical manifestation to be acknowledged as such. An individual will choose only one of the potential probabilities to be materialized as an actual event. This does not mean that all other gestational probabilities are denied expression, or otherwise cease to exist. Everett put forth that every probability not chosen to be experienced(or observed), finds expression in an alternate system of existence where it becomes the officially accepted version of reality. This results in a kind of splitting off that occurs at every junction and fork in the road where we make a choice, either consciously or unconsciously. This also means that there is a number of slightly or significantly varied versions of ourselves constantly branching off, inhabiting quite real worlds that happen to run along different tracks parallel to the one we occupy. Each such probable system exists autonomously and is perfectly real in the most tangible sense to the version of the self that perceives it. The objective of quantum physics is to unify the underlying causality of consciousness with hard, measurable science in order to formulate a cohesive theory of everything. But how do we reconcile conventional physics and quantum mechanics that on the surface appear to run contrary to each other? Once again, perspective is everything. There really is no contradiction if you view these disciplines as two sides of the same coin. In the context of our discussion, the Newtonian model governs the narrowly defined parameters of the physical dimension, designed as a micro-system conducive to specifically calibrated lines of consciousness development. Quantum mechanics, on the other hand, points to the greater underlying structure that supports an infinite number and variety of such micro-systems, of which our physical reality is but one. Classical mechanics then applies strictly to the micro stratum, while quantum physics attempts to explain the macro, or source level reality, which by definition also dictates the behavior of all of its derivative offshoots. Once the nuances and the inner workings of the larger mechanism are properly understood, one can begin to alter and manipulate the seemingly fixed nature of the physical microcosm with more discretion and precision.
Big picture/Macro reality
Because much of our compartmentalized awareness is intensely focused on the physical(micro) plane of existence, we are able to perceive but a fraction of the infinitely complex and layered multidimensional(macro) reality underneath. Limited by the biological hardware, our highly specialized senses capture and translate only a tiny portion of this underlying frequency into actionable data, applicable within the three-dimensional spectrum. The physical world is a partial, crystallized densification of this intricately elaborate electromagnetic blueprint, perceived and acted upon by the observer. The concept of an observer implies some sort of an individuated consciousness. As established by quantum physics, the watcher's choice of focus and intentionality seem to be inextricably woven into the fabric of this underlying matrix, constituting intelligent design. The observer thinks, feels, and yearns, thus organizing billions of vibrating particles into complex patterns that become things and events. This means that the observer isn't just a perceiver, but is in fact the primary conceiver of his/her reality. Although we often refer to consciousness as a state of awareness, it is not something we possess, but more accurately, it's what and who we are. Consciousness could be defined as self aware energy. If everything in the universe is made of energy, and consciousness is self aware energy, then we may logically conclude that nothing exists apart or outside of consciousness. The observer is the conscious energetic epicenter continually emanating a structured electromagnetic field of information. This means that we don't exist in a reality, but that it exists within us as an intimate mental projection. Everything we experience and perceive as separate from ourselves is but an extension of our own energy. We dream a dream, project it outward, perceive it, and then respond to it as if it were disconnected from its primary source -- ourselves. Quite literally, we ARE the reality we perceive. Bashar, an entity channelled by Darryl Anka, lays out the five laws of creation:
1. You exist. Always have, always will.
Existence is absolute and, therefore, by definition cannot contain non existence. Physics agrees with this premise, stating that energy can be neither created nor destroyed, it can only be transformed. Still, scientists cannot definitively pinpoint the primary source of this universal energy. In spiritual circles its origin is often referred to as God, Creator, or All That Is, which once again implies some primal source-consciousness. The recurring mathematical sequences and geometric patterns embedded throughout all aspects of knowable universe, such as the golden ratio and the Fibonacci spiral, lend credulity to the theory of intelligent design of a singular origin. Every being is an extension of All That Is and as such, is endowed with all the inherent qualities thereof. Because the Whole is greater than the sum of its parts, the Source simultaneously knows itself as the collective as well as identifying with the most minute, independent consciousness of every single autonomously individuated unit within itself. As Rumi put it, "You are not a drop in the ocean, you are the entire ocean in a single drop." The implication is that God is not a finished product or a fully formed being but that it is existence itself, which is never complete and is always in the state of becoming. Possessing both intelligence and purpose, it is compelled to dream, create, grow, and change in perpetuity. In a sense, God is the ultimate artist of unlimited imagination and inexhaustible inspiration. As humans, we like to humanize God referring to this immense intelligence as "he"or the goddess, but such classifications are only reflective of our own small mindedness and limitation. As a part of this immeasurably intelligent and imaginative force, each individual embodies its inherently incessant longing for creative expression. Everything you ever imagined exists somewhere, at some level of reality, because one cannot conceive non-existence. As Bashar eloquently stated, non-existence is already full of all the things that will never exist. All That Is can only learn about its innate qualities and discover the extent of its capabilities(or limitations) by creating endless configurations or versions of itself and then observing them. This means that once formed as a distinct self with a designated purpose, each component is fully independent and has complete freedom of expression within the parameters of its identity structure. In a similar fashion, every autonomous portion of creation wants to know itself by exploring its creative limits and constantly splits off countless newly formed, self-aware fragments that continue this process ad infinitum. You may think of these individuated units as exploratory probes dispatched from the home base to gather information about distant star systems. Each probe is programmed and equipped with technological tools and devices specifically tailored to the unique conditions of the intended research target. For instance, a probe sent to a gaseous planet with very high temperatures would require a significantly different design and instrumentation than a probe sent to a planet with a frozen, rocky terrain. In a similar fashion, a consciousness would choose an optimal vehicle of manifestation(body), taking into consideration gender, race, and other genetic factors that would help to ensure the most conducive conditions for growth and learning. This could be a superior athletic physique or a congenital birth defect, depending on the objective of the incarnating consciousness. Those exploring lives on other planets or in different types of realities would choose appropriately suitable vehicles of manifestation. Some dimensions are non physical in nature and require no body at all. Once the mission is complete, the probe returns home with gathered data and samples. Depending on the size or complexity of the surveyed area, a number of probes may be deployed simultaneously. Additionally, after initial findings multiple missions may be necessary over an extended period of time, narrowing or expanding the scope of the expeditions, while at the same time necessitating design revisions of the vehicles for maximum efficiency and more precise function. In this instance the probes serve as representations of the endlessly varied configurations of consciousness, exploring infinite numbers of realities across the limitless field of creation, thus expanding its depth and self knowledge with each foray into the unknown.
2. The all is one and one is the all.
To better explain the second law, Bashar put forth the concept of prime radiant. Imagine, if you will, the smallest unit of consciousness conceivable. It's not a particle, but the non physical foundational building block of all existence. You may think of it as the original spark of self aware consciousness from which all creation springs. This speck of awareness has no mass and is not limited by any other factors as it exists in a complete void. Because it's the only thing in existence, and there isn't anything else that could affect it in any way, the prime radiant has no limitations. This means that it can travel at infinite speeds, in any and all directions and, therefore, can appear to be everywhere at once. To an independent observer this sentient singularity would be perceived as a multitude of different fragments, as a result of its unrestrained motion. Now imagine that this unit of consciousness is aware of its own trajectory and can also perceive its own presence in multiple locations, which makes it both the observer and the observed. Yet instead of recognizing all these visible manifestations as traces of its own activity, it views them as completely separate and independent, and thus interacts with them as such. This is what is often referred to as the illusion of separation. We perceive a multitude of beings and objects, seeing them as foreign and disconnected from us but in reality they are nothing more than fragmented reflections of the totality of who we are. The energy of the soul is so immensely expansive and complex in terms of its vibrational spectrum that it cannot be physicalized in its entirety as a singular embodiment. Because the gravity of the earth could not support the complete incarnation of a soul, it must be fractured into a plurality of segments. We then register and process this multitude of configurations in a piecemeal fashion through the limited scope afforded us by our biological apparatus as we shift through the unbounded infinity of possibilities. According to this postulate, everything in existence is "literally one thing, and one single moment experiencing itself from multiple points of view"! The heartwarming cliche 'we are all one' is not just some cozy, hallucinogen induced metaphor. Every person, creature, and object, is literally the exact same unit of consciousness observed from a different perspective. It is the shift in perspective that makes it appear different. Think of the moon and how it looks in the night sky when we admire its pale, distant glow from Earth, versus the unremarkable, gray, rocky desert we would encounter if we landed on it. So while perception may, for all intents and purposes equal reality, reality is not always exactly as it's perceived. Nonetheless, it doesn't make the appearance of the glowing disk in the dark sky any less real, and no one would assert that the visibly lustrous satellite circling our planet is but a figment of the observer's imagination.
There's an added dimension to the fascinating complexity of creation that most of us rarely consider. Since we know that we are the embodiment of consciousness and everything else we perceive is just a different version of this manifestation, then it follows that all the other observable materializations, including animals, plants, and even the seemingly inanimate objects like rocks and scraps of metal, must also be conscious. Seth(channeled by Jane Roberts), states in The Nature of Personal Reality that every object and thing is self aware. For instance, a tree knows that it's a tree; it also remembers and recognizes the vibrational signature of every person/animal who's walked past it. The tree is intimately aware of its immediate surroundings and registers any changes that occur within that environment. It's ignorant to assume that the tree is any less sentient and, therefore, inferior simply because we cannot relate to its unique brand of consciousness. A great way of stretching one's psychic perception can be exercised by energetically coupling with a tree, thus making it possible to experience to a small extent what it feels like to be that tree. This idea is equally applicable to any other object or creature in existence.
3. Everything is here now.
Since there's only one single unit of consciousness and one single moment, it means that everything exists at once. Seth describes this attribute of reality as the spacious present or simultaneous everywhere. If the same exact particle makes up the Grand Canyon and the wicker chair, as well as the dog curled up on the patio next to that chair, then why do they look and behave differently? The variety observed within creation is a result of differentiation in energetic frequency. Vibrational frequency is defined by the predominant quality of the energetic signature emitted by the source-consciousness, as a result of its thoughts, sentiments, beliefs, and emotions. In essence, where and when you are depends on who you are. If the frequency of an object or a being could be defined by a mathematical equation, their location in space and time would be determined by the designated value of the specific variables denoting these coordinates. In this mathematical context the slightest change is a total change. For instance, a person in a location/time A is a fundamentally different person when they are in a location/time B. This is because we don't exist in a time or in a location, but because time and location are the properties of the frequency that defines our identity at any given moment. This also means that travel through space and time could be instantaneous and as simple as adjusting one's vibrational signature. In order to teleport from location A to location B, the traveler has to alter the mathematical value of coordinates denoting their placement in location A to match the value that defines the coordinates of location B. In actuality, we constantly shift from one parallel reality to another with every fluctuation in our thoughts, beliefs, and emotional state, while the brain creates a sense of linear continuity. As we incrementally shift perspective relative to the moment, we create the illusion of moving through a multitude of consecutive moments, thus creating the experience of time.
Time is an artificial construct and its linear structure, which we normally take for granted, is only applicable within the bounds of our physical reality. There are types of realities where past, present, and future are perceived and processed instantly and simultaneously, thus creating a very different experiential process for its inhabitants. Most of us are familiar with a much less rigid time structure of dreams. For instance, a significant duration of time lasting hours, days, or perhaps even years, could be experienced within a brief span of an afternoon nap. Such a dream can also be incredibly vivid and realistic, furnished with elaborate scenery and props, yet it takes up no real space that can be identified or pinpointed on a map. You can't physically travel to a dream location because it only exists within your consciousness, although many such backdrops are often fashioned after familiar places we encounter in our everyday lives. Conventionally, dreams are considered to be the byproducts of our imagination generated by the richly complex brain activity. What is interesting is that while immersed in the dramatic events unfolding within the dream, the dreamer does not disappear or cease to exist in the reality of their primary focus. While a portion of your consciousness is active in the dream world, the other version of you remains in the physical dimension and anyone would be able to confirm that you are indeed lying in your bed, albeit in a state of suspended animation. At the same time in your dream you are far from a formless blob, as the consciousness constructs a suitable vehicle of manifestation, which you clearly recognize and know as yourself. For all intents and purposes, at that instant you effectively occupy two distinctly different realities simultaneously. The dream doesn't begin when we fall asleep and it doesn't end when we wake up, so in a sense, we are constantly dreaming(Seth). But because most of us have the limited capacity to keep track of a singular line of awareness at a time, we only become aware of ourselves in the dream dimension when our "normal" state of consciousness is diminished or shut off. The dream world is but a parallel reality inhabited by another version of ourselves, and when we dream we simply look through the eyes of that individual. Upon awakening we shift our focus back to the physical world while the dream self fades into the background beyond our immediate awareness. We live our lives intermittently alternating between the two states of consciousness. It is my personal belief that one of the evolutionary goals of humanity is to broaden this capacity to grasp and contain greater cross-sections of the existential matrix, and we are all growing toward this end. There are individuals among us who have attained the ability to split their awareness between multiple dimensions of reality without losing lucidity. Author and physicist Thomas Campbell claims to have developed this impressive faculty. To those who discount dreams as nothing more than useless mental debris that the brain discards like a self cleaning oven, I say: how do you account for valid, verifiable, and actionable information gained during the periods of slumber? For instance, it's quite common to have interactions with deceased loved ones who often pass on wisdom and useful advice, receive precognitive warnings of impending disasters or other kinds of danger, and in some cases, even to accurately preview the winning lotto numbers. I have had dream experiences that were several days in duration and felt so authentically realistic and strikingly evocative that upon awakening I found myself discombobulated and confused, struggling to regain my sense of identity. Having become so completely enmeshed with the dream persona, I had a hard time reintegrating into my "real" life. What if the dream self sees itself as the primary identity, deeming the physical personality a figment of his/her imagination? In reality, both are equally valid portions of the soul. The important takeaway is that we actively exist in a multitude of dimensions simultaneously, but the ego personality prioritizes those identities and their activities along the lines of its narrowly defined value system. Contrary to the popular saying, we most definitely don't live only once.
The idea of reincarnation or multiple lives has gotten some mainstream traction in recent years. This is not a novel idea, however, as the concept has been widely accepted in many eastern societies and religions for thousands of years. We imagine that each life occurs one after another in a linear fashion because we view all events through the artificial prism of time. However, in the spacious present all things exist at once. This means that lives are not past, present or future, but concurrent. The only thing that separates these realities is frequency. A useful analogy to illustrate this point is that of a radio. The radio transmits many different stations simultaneously, yet the listener is only able to listen to one channel at a time. You have to change the radio frequency in order to receive a different station. But just because your device is capable of receiving one program at a time it doesn't mean that other channels stop transmitting while you listen to your specific station. All stations continue their programming, and you have the ability to tune into any other station at any time by pushing a button or turning the dial. This means that the version of you exploring life lessons in the Middle Ages, and the version of you living 300 years in your relative future is just as solid and real as the self you identify with at this very moment. The reason that it is even possible for psychically sensitive individuals to perceive probable future events is that these events already exist, because as previously established, one cannot perceive non-existence. It is important to underscore that no one can predict the future because no such thing exists. A psychic can only sense the strongest probability based on the predominant energy at the time of the reading. The slightest fluctuation in that energy subsequently alters the future event. Paradoxically, the very awareness of the strongest probability automatically changes its energetic frequency, thus resulting in a slightly different future outcome.
All of us have the built-in ability to freely shift through a variety of frequencies and constantly do so. Every moment is a separate reality. Therefore, when gaining gradual awareness of ourselves in concurrently simultaneous realities, we create an experience that feels as if we move from one to another in a chronologically linear fashion because that is how our mechanism of incremental perception operates from this particular perspective. There are many non-physical [micro] realities that, while more plastic and refined in vibration, still retain some remnants of the linear paradigm, as recalled by many survivors of near death experiences. There are documented cases of lucid out of body projectors and hypnotized past life regression subjects who are able to relive the moments right after death, as well as the periods between lives. What is commonly reported once the body is discarded is that individuals seem to have a greater awareness of their identity beyond the ego structure and their existential program(the purpose for incarnating into a particular life). They also become cognizant of the agreements made with other beings -- those who incarnate alongside them, as well as those who remain in the non physical dimension, having taken on the role of their guides. With the help of those guides who, as a rule, are significantly more advanced then their charges, a thorough assessment of the most recent life is conducted, evaluating both the successes and failures, allowing to determine what adjustments will have to be implemented for the next go around. So as you can see, there are levels and gradations to the experiences a consciousness can have -- from the most dense and limited by the physical restrictions of the solid matter, to the more refined and expanded, like the reality encountered after physical death. In the extra-physical dimension there's no need to eat, sleep, or take a bus to get to a desired destination. Every thought is instantly materialized, and beings have the ability to fly as well as teleport. In this state of being spirit consciousnesses may(or may not, depending on the level of their lucidity) have full awareness of their other lives and identities(alternate, past, present, and future). They may also have access to infinitely more complex levels of knowledge and information. While a serious upgrade from the constricting experience of the physical reality, this more expanded existence is still a type of micro-system within an even greater matrix of existence. Beyond each layer there's another more expanded version. One might compare this idea to the structure of the colorful Russian Matryoshka dolls. The bigger the shell of the Matryoshka, the greater number of the individual dolls it can hold. While each larger doll houses a smaller one, the largest doll contains all the individual components. In line with this analogy, the non-physical dimension we encounter after death would be the doll that houses the smaller doll representing the physical world, yet this relatively larger Matryoshka is inside an even bigger doll, symbolic of an even more expanded level of reality. That is why even from the broader non physical point of view we may have the perceptual experience of being reborn one consecutive life after another, which in of itself is perfectly valid. However, if observed from the vantage point of the macro level reality, the whole self would be aware of all its incarnations existing at once. This is what is meant when saying that relative perspective determines the appearance and the properties that the observed unit of consciousness exhibits within the fabric of existence. When viewed from another vantage point, abiding by different laws or rules of perception and possessing a different level of awareness, the observed plane would expand or contract conforming to the observer's unique specifications or restrictions. Moving beyond the artificial filters of micro systems and manufactured personality structures into the awareness of the collective consciousness would automatically enable us to see past these superficially fabricated barriers, allowing a more authentic view not only of reality but of ourselves. The mind blowing paradox is that while we artificially construct various learning environments to help us evolve and attain greater levels of consciousness, the selves toward which we are evolving already exist side by side with us within the spacious present. Moreover, these more advanced selves often guide and aid us in our developmental process. By doing so they inevitably add to their own growth and expansion because we are but extensions of their energy.
4. What you put out, is what you get back
This relates to the concept commonly known as karma. Some view this principle as one of reward and punishment relative to one's actions. It's much more simple and is completely devoid of any value judgment. If you recall, there's only one thing in all of existence and you are it. As the prime radiant, you know yourself as the primary observer-identity, yet at the same time you also perceive other energetic extensions of this multilayered self that may appear as your dog Bailey, or your husband John, or your boss Nancy. Since you are literally the only thing that exists, and all the other people and objects you perceive and interact with at any given time are simply different configurations of your own energy, you cannot get back what you did not put out because there isn't anything else out there! This is very simple math indeed.
Often people point to the apparent atrocities in the world, such as abject poverty, discrimination, and senseless violence, making them the cornerstone of their fight for justice. There are those who question the kind of god who would allow such cruel suffering of the innocents. While their noble intent is laudable, the goal cannot be achieved through their means of choice. The desire to fight the existing socioeconomic structure through resistance and destruction is rooted in the fundamental misunderstanding of causation. In actuality, nothing we perceive outside of ourselves exists independently from us. Everything in life is simply an extension of our own frequency. As this frequency changes, so does the form through which it manifests. When confronted by unpleasant circumstances, ask yourself: "What would I have to believe about myself, the situation, or my relationship to it, in order to extract this kind of effect?" To use Bashar's metaphor, attempting to affect the outer conditions is about as useful as manipulating a reflection observed in the mirror. The mirror can only display what's in front of it. In of itself the looking glass is devoid of meaning and has zero effect on the object it reflects. It's only purpose is to faithfully mimic the nature of that which is viewed through its prism. The object itself must be altered in some way in order for the mirror to display a modified image. As the source of all observable reality, you cannot perceive that which you are not a vibration of(Bashar). This includes the destructive events happening to other people separated by oceans and continents, which may very well leave you feeling appalled. I've heard people argue about children starving in Africa, saying "how could I possibly have anything to do with that?" Because they are geographically and otherwise removed or not directly affected, they fail to see the connection. The other reason for this disconnect is the result of identifying entirely with the ego personality structure. When we say "I" we refer to the Harry, Dick, or Sally we see in the mirror, living on Prospect Lane and taking calls at the IRS building Monday through Friday. We will continue to be angry at the apparent injustices in the world until we realize that the whole self we are contains the totality of the observable universe. The ego personality is only a fragment of that self. If something is within our scope of awareness then it is by definition a part of our I AM identity. Having awareness of negative conditions that we adamantly claim we would never consciously choose or that seem to be outside of our purview simply highlights parts of our consciousness that we may not have been aware of. Regretfully, most people are not aware of the core beliefs that are responsible for shaping their reality. These disowned parts are illuminated and reflected back to us so that they can be embraced and dealt with. Our belief systems about the nature of reality are just that -- beliefs. Yet they unfailingly determine what we see when we observe that reality. Core beliefs are definitions that the source energy responds and conforms to. You can never change the world by fighting external circumstances. The only real and consequential change must occur within the energetic frequency of the conscious transmitter because we register and translate that specific signature into physical data, i.e people, objects, and events. Once this vibration is adjusted, the field of observation changes accordingly. We never actually change the existing reality. Every vibrational shift is also an automatic shift to a different dimension because where you are depends on who you are. In order to change the observable reality we must alter who we are energetically, which then enables us to shift to a parallel reality that is more reflective of the desired change. There is no other way.
5. Everything changes, except for the fist four laws.
While the universe is a living, breathing thing, it is also a neutral one. It responds and molds itself to the dominant frequency of the observer, which constantly varies according to the observer's ever changing point of view. There's no inherent meaning or purpose other than the one assigned to it by the source consciousness. Every individual is the source consciousness of their own universe. As it turns out, the world does revolve around you! Because every single perspective within creation is equally valid, it supports an endless variety of reality models. It's important to understand that simply because something exists or is possible, it doesn't mean that it has to be a part of our personal experience. That is the reason why even within the bounds of the physical world we are able to observe such a range of circumstances -- from the most dreadfully deplorable to the joyfully exalted and abundant. Both coexist within our sphere of awareness, we decide which one becomes our primary experience.
