Although I was familiar with the concept of the Age of Aquarius, it wasn’t until last year that I heard the term 5D (fifth dimension) Ascension.
On the winter solstice of 2012, we began moving out of the Age of Pisces (third dimension consciousness) into the Age of Aquarius (fifth dimension consciousness). It is speculated that by 2032, we might be fully integrated into a fifth-dimensional frequency. If you are not familiar with these terms, 3D consciousness is comprised of a lower density vibrational frequency.
When operating in the third dimension, we view things from a purely physical state and view ourselves as separate from others. We believe that we are in competition with others and operate from a concept of scarcity and victim consciousness. Living in 3D consciousness is essentially operating out of ego and fear.
As we enter into 4D, we begin to awaken to the understanding that we are all connected, that there is more to life than what we can access physically, and that our thoughts and feelings impact our reality. We also begin to understand that there is a greater purpose in life and search for something more meaningful than our materially based life.
As we shift into 5D consciousness, we begin operating from a place of love, compassion, and authenticity. These dimensions aren’t places per se, but frames of mind. Many of us are able to access these higher vibrational states from time to time. However, due to old programming and trauma, we revert back to lower levels. Some of us lightworkers, who have accessed these higher vibrational states, are here to assist others in aligning ideologically and energetically in this ascension process.
It is speculated that the concept of the 5D Ascension dates back to the civilization of Atlantis which operated from a fifth-dimensional frequency. However, as civilization developed, it became greedy, materialistic, and started operating from an ego perspective instead of love.
Because of this, the civilization sank into the resonance of the third dimension and was eventually destroyed. Since that time, our planet has been operating from a third-dimensional frequency. It was prophesied that humanity would once again be entering back into the fifth dimension, which brings us some hope during these seemingly bleak times. Many speculate that what we are currently experiencing is the collapse of the 3D matrix and most of us will transcend into this fifth-dimensional state.
2020 was definitely a pivotal year within this ascension process. 2020 was the numerological year four, which symbolized structure and foundation, and a master number 22, which emphasized its spiritual significance. It also symbolized 20/20 vision or seeing things clearly.
We began 2020 with a rare planetary alignment, which set the tone for the year. Pluto (the planet of transformation) aligned with Saturn (the planet of karma and challenges) in Capricorn (the planet of hierarchy and systems), which indicated that we would be headed toward a major paradigm shift. This illuminated the foundation of our current system because it is not in alignment with this new higher vibrational frequency we are moving into.
During the Age of Pisces, we created hierarchical systems to provide structure and guidance for our lives, because we believed that we needed something or someone to believe in. As we shift into the Age of Aquarius, our systems need to reflect the ideology of love, freedom, personal responsibility, and doing what is best for humanity.
Shortly after this alignment, the corona (crown) virus made its appearance, which I believe symbolized a spiritual awakening as the crown chakra is the energy center that connects us to the spiritual world. The universe then put us into a quarantine right at the same time we entered a highly charged retrograde storm that lasted for most of the year.
Pluto was also playing a major role throughout the year. This created a collective dark night of the soul experience, which involved our deepest fears, wounds, and outdated beliefs to be brought to the surface in order to be examined, processed, and healed to help us align to this new consciousness.
Because some of the main themes of the Age of Aquarius are free-spiritedness and self-reliance, one of the main spiritual agendas behind 2020 was to illuminate our fears in order for us to move out of victim-consciousness and into personal empowerment.
In 2020, we illuminated the matrix, and in 2021, we were asked to start rebuilding it. 2021, year number five, symbolized freedom and creativity. The major astrological pattern of last year was the Uranus (the planet of revolution and innovation) and Saturn (the planet of karma and challenges) square, which is yet another extremely rare occurrence. It not only occurred once but three times last year (February, June, and December), which highlights just how significant last year was.
This pattern was asking us to resolve the conflict between our higher vibrational needs for freedom and our lower vibrational needs for security, which again encouraged us to move into this higher vibrational alignment. Whether we are conscious of it or not, we are all upgrading to this higher frequency.
Because we are shifting into a more evolved state of consciousness, we have been experiencing tremendous growing pains. There has been so much for us to work through internally. We are essentially examining and clearing many lifetimes of trauma and old programming, as well as experiencing physical and energetic upgrades, which has definitely been difficult and exhausting.
Because many of us have been moving in and out of third, fourth, and fifth-dimensional frequency, time has also felt quite strange. This shift has also prompted us to experience an existential crisis of sorts and many of us have made some significant life changes.
We are now in 2022, possibly the midpoint of this transition. This is year number six, which symbolizes peace and hope. 2022 will hopefully serve as a year for us to rest, heal, and fully integrate as we continue along the path of living at a higher vibrational frequency.
