it’s all fine and well that we want to activate our crystalline DNA, activate our light body and all of these things; but when you just take the four steps like I am suggesting, the chakras, the DNA, the light body, activate on their own.–Matt Kahn,( circa 1:03:52 of The First Wave of Ascension…)
Greetings generous listeners. My two preceding posts, one on July 11, the other on July 12 have led me to this point: If our choices matter, as suggested by the first, and if the way forward requires changes in ourselves, as suggested by the second, how can we make choices that best serve our desire to move forward and how can we make the requisite changes in ourselves to do so? I am going to examine the answers to these questions as I perceive them being given by Matt in the video from which I took the quotation above. Matt certainly does not need me to explain his clearly delivered messages, but many of us cannot spare the time, and maybe even the Internet data, to review a video that is well worth multiple replays.
Before examining the four stages, or phases of fifth dimensional initiation, however, I want to emphasize the point that Matt makes near the end of his presentation: FIFTH DIMENSIONAL EXPERIENCE DOES NOT REQUIRE ANY ESOTERIC KNOWLEDGE NOR ANY ESOTERIC PRACTICES. The way forward is available to everyone. If the more esoteric practices are helpful to you, use them. Yet nothing more is required than our recognition that it is our divine nature and not any particular ritual or technique that powers our freedom of experience and creativity. That is very much what Bashar’s term “permission slip” is all about. (Google it if you need a review of that very significant concept.)
I have no desire to engage a world that is exclusive. I have no desire to engage a world in which only a few matter. That which we variously call The Divine, The Absolute, God, The Universe, All That Is… by whatever name, is INCLUSIVE. Nothing exists that is external to that UNITY. It is inherent in the nature of such a ONE that the means of spiritual advance be open to all. Please notice that, of Matt’s four hallmarks of initiation, none of them requires any knowledge or practices that are known only to an elite. They all are enjoined in even the simplest, most mundane behaviors of everyday life–- no esoterica required. They are directed, not toward the production of inward-turning spiritually isolated individuals, but toward expansion into benign and cooperative interaction with and among every-one. The merest intent to serve another, be they large or small, human or otherwise, suffices to anchor positive vibration. Anyone can do that. (For an informative, if not amusing, account of how “every-one” includes even the smallest bug, see Roberts, Jane (2013-02-01). The Early Sessions: Book 2 of The Seth Material (Kindle Locations 3935ff). New Awareness Network, Inc.. Kindle Edition. There, Seth points out that “it is not only wise but advantageous to help any living creature, regardless of its stature in your scheme of things.” ) I make these introductory observations just so they won’t get lost in the ensuing details. It should be clear that our everyday practices, be they of great import in the eyes of the world or trivial in the eyes of most, provide all the opportunity necessary for fifth dimensional ascension.
Turning now to specifics, here are the qualities which Matt has identified as the four stages that are the hallmarks of those who are among the first wave of fifth dimensional ascension. (1) They make decisions that reflect an awareness of their accountability for “matching [their] choices with [their] deepest insights and wisdom”, thereby producing choices with the highest vibrational charge; (2) In the second stage, they honor the contribution to their spiritual growth made by everyone, even those who are behaving poorly, recognizing that every one is their teacher; (3) In the third stage, they act with humility, without the presumption that they know what life should have in store for them, but rather by “making life’s way [their] way; (4) In the fourth stage, they engage in service toward every single person whom they encounter, acting with love, compassion, and tolerance.
In the first stage, accountability, the primary goal is to increase the reliability with which we make choices which anchor higher vibrational energy:
Your choices contain energetic vibrations and the more often you make choices that feel good in your body and don’t make choices that don’t feel good in your body, you begin to inundate your vibration with a high vibrational frequency. As this happens, you start to feel better in your body, and you start to perceive things from an expanded level of consciousness, then you start to interact differently with the world; things that used to trigger you, people who used to trigger you don’t trigger you anymore; and all of a sudden you start attracting different situations and outcomes and people that match that new vibration. ….who we attract are reflections of the vibrations that we anchor through our choices. [circa 31:33]
As you make choices that anchor an increasing proportion of higher vibrational frequencies, you not only feel better, but you begin to “perceive things from an expanded level of consciousness;” you begin to attract more positive situations, “outcomes, and people that match that new vibration;” you begin to behave in a more loving manner, becoming less inclined to react with anger, as “people who used to trigger you don’t trigger you anymore.” And the way to increase the proportion of your choices which are of a higher vibration is simply a matter of ” using your physical body … like your intuitive measuring stick [emphasis mine], that says “when I feel good about choices, I am anchoring higher vibrational energy in my field.” and when I make choices that don’t feel good to me [I am] just…maintaining the lower vibrational energy that’s there.” Hence, making choices which “feel relaxing and exciting in your body” rather than making you “feel bad about yourself” or those that produce fear or anxiety, not only contributes to your feeling good, but to your possessing an expanded consciousness and becoming a more benign and loving person. Nothing esoteric or unavailable to anyone is required.
When we engage the second stage, honor, again we are not required to exercise any uncommon abilities. We simply need to recognize that everyone in our life, regardless of how they behave, serves us as a catalyst capable of moving us toward greater service to ourselves and others:
What does honor mean? Honor means the recognition that every single character in your holographic play is a catalyst, here only to help you awaken… everyone who acts unconsciously in your reality is actually embodying and reflecting back to you all of your past unconscious conditioning so that you get to see it from a different perspective….[they are asking you silently] “however you think I should behave is how you respond to me.” ….to get you to keep practicing bringing your greatest skills and wisdom into action, which is constantly anchoring more energy that you’ve learned in the first stage of accountability. [circa, 38:45]
When we behave with honor, we do not let the behavior of others dissuade us from acting the way we want to act; we do not behave poorly just because someone else is behaving poorly toward us. We recognize the opportunity to exercise and develop our own loving skills and insight. Matt associates behaving honorably with self respect, because it requires that we do not let our respect for ourselves depend upon the respect others may or may not give to us: “Honor, self respect. I am not nourished by what you give to me; I am nourished by what I give to you.” Behave in a loving, respectful way, regardless of how the other behaves. This serves you and serves all others, because all behavior, whether positive or negative, can teach you how YOU WANT TO BEHAVE. You behave honorably when you persist in your own integrity, without letting the reactions of others turn you from what you know is your choice. Thus, honor involves respecting both your self and others regardless of how others are acting. This stage does not ask of us anything that we cannot do in our daily lives.
When we engage the third stage, we act with humility. [Matt’s discussion of humility begins around the 48:28 time marker. ] We act with humility as a consequence of recognizing that many of the things that happen in our lives are intended to serve our higher good, we surrender to the fact that ” [our] life is already destined to be exactly what it needs to be, as a catalyst of [our] greatest evolution in every breath and every outcome.” We no longer assume that the way we want it is necessarily the way that best serves us or others. We no longer act with indignation or rancor when life does not transpire as we want. We bring “our way” into alignment with “life’s way.” As I once heard it said in a rather folksy way, happiness is not getting what you want, it’s wanting what you get. I suspect that this third stage will bring about that same result.
The fourth and final stage, service, is probably familiar to most of us. Matt gives a basic description of service in terms of how we act toward all others, regardless of whether we are in a formal service occupation or interacting with others in a less formal capacity:
Whether you are just interacting with your coworkers every day or you are just interacting with the public, how lovingly and compassionately and tolerant you become are the patterns that you are planting in humanity for it’s ascension. That’s service.[circa 52:55]
Placing heavy stress on the fact that the opportunity to render service is ubiquitous, everywhere at all times in our everyday life, we are admonished not to restrict our idea of service to being in a service profession. We may do that but it is not required; and if we do, our rendering service should nonetheless extend into our every encounter and not be restricted to whatever formal occupational role we may play. Hence, like that characteristic of all the other stages, the opportunity to engage in behavior which honors the stage of service is available to everyone, regardless of occupation or training.
Since we do not need a great deal of special training or esoteric knowledge in order to engage each of these stages, there is no reason to wait for some heroic event to start ! Please proceed. The opportunity is already here. There is no line, no waiting, no special training required. At the risk of being accused of over-indulging in a plethora of long quotations, I will not resist Matt’s closing statement. It is too eloquent to ignore. Forgive me this extravagance. It is more than a summary. It reveals in a most instructive way what ASCENSION is all about. It is not about waiting for something to happen to you. It is about behaving in a way that brings you into alignment with a new world. The choice is yours to make.
Instead of trying to turn yourself into a project of spiritual perfectionism, just look at these four little phases: Where can I be more accountable? How can I be more honorable? How can I cultivate deeper humility and how can I live in greater service to those around me, including my self …So when you find yourself out of alignment, trying to manifest the very things that don’t show up, and even if you suspect “I’d like to raise my vibration and make my life more loving and gentle and easy,” OK, time to become more accountable, more honorable, cultivate more humility by living in service to the innocense in all hearts, one “I love you” at a time. And each of us live in our own world, our own holograms, where we each get to demonstrate this in action, and watch as it changes the experience of the character that you’re inhabiting and then over time it starts to reflect back to you a world that’s acting as conscious, accountable, honorable, humble, and in as much service to you as you are living for it. This is a time in history where we don’t live in a world, we start living for the world, you disappear out of the world you thought you were living in. You can call that ascension if you’d like.
