5D Ascension: How to Thrive in 5D Consciousness? (7 Qualities to Embody)

Submitted by Open on Sun, 12/01/2019 - 05:37

The old world reality is being stirred up quite heftily now, the threads of the karmic construct are unravelling. There's still plenty hanging on of course, but now a growing wave of people are letting go of the bank and taking the 5D centre stream. It's turbulent in the beginning. There will come the sense of grief and loss. That's okay. It's just the other side of the coin from freedom and joy. You have to settle into the infinite potential of the singularity for it to flow. When you do, the new 5D consciousness will spring forth. It's then a case of embodying it as it comes through you. That way, the new multidimensional landscape will shape around you.

Here's what to focus on.

Taking Centre Stream

I find myself often saying 'we're living in two worlds right now not one'. It's NOT a metaphor! This literally is the case. Back in 2012, Gaia centred herself in the Middle Realm of the 5D/6D/7D. Sit back for a moment. Contemplate the acceleration of change since that galactic alignment: the increasing challenge to the old world consciousness; the rapid change of climate; an acceleration in the passing on of other sentient life (now over 200 species per day); and, a wave of people waking up and taking centre stream.

The New World is interwoven with this one. But you can't see or perceive it with 3D eyes. It's felt in the flow itself. When you get out of the old 3D norms and conditioned ways of doing things, when you go with the heartfelt pull or the flash of higher knowing, then steadily the new 5D landscape builds around you. You're looking through the 3D world, but perceiving the higher meaning, what the Universe is working to reflect and reveal. Where in the beginning all seems hazy and confusing, now things click in around you. You witness the deeper synchronistic purpose, which feels majestic and magical to embody.

Be aware though it's not all roses in the beginning! You'll stir up a good deal of sh** in your old life, that which your karmic subconsciousness had created. It's necessary to unravel and unwind this to experience the flowing freedom of 5D. Yes, you could simply disassociate, pop into a 4D bubble of disconnection. But after a while you see that illusion too. It's about accepting the challenge of the unwinding subconsciousness, then noticing as you process this, always some new aspect of majestic beingness takes form. You start creating in an entirely new way. The challenge is well worth it. In any case, you reach the point where there was simply no going back.

Fearless Voyage of the Soul

So first there's the requirement to soften into the singulaity - to the deep inner peace within. Which comes from allowing the untangling, the unravelling of the old construct. You'll come into the Sacred Ground of Being - the core consciousness looking into the infinite well of the One. It's like your mast in the storm as the ship of the soul then emerges forth.

To deny the voyage of the soul is to deny the singulaity, the two are interconnected. I see so many people these days, that when I look in their eyes, they don't seem fully there. They'd popped out into a disconnected 4D bubble. Yes, the spirit light body also feels like a bubble of light, but the crucial difference is that it's a FLOWING bubble. There's no fixed intention to be in a particular state, simply to allow the Universe to flow through you. Your 5D vessel becomes the boat that you're sailing in.

Before enlightenment chop wood carry water. After  enlightenment, chop wood carry water. You just do it in a different way now, with more purpose, meaning and interconnective flow. And it feels like heaven!

Being and The One

A lot of people have found the presence now. But what's often NOT appreciated is that this isn't the end of the story, it's only the prologue. It's a great place to come to, yes, but not the end of the journey in itself - it's the welcome end of the beginning. There's still much confusion about what 'being The One' actually means. There's two aspects to it: "being" and "The One". In The One, there is only the singularity. Only the presence of infinite potential - there is nothing manifest, and therefore nothing to be experienced. You cannot exist in this state, and if you're here in any kind of form, you're simply not in that state. Although you could be in a disconnected 4D bubble and think you are.

Take a look at the Universe - it's teaming with life that sprang from the singularity. And since time is an illusion, since we're living in a hollogram of light, the singularity exists in dynamic equilibrium with the relativistic. The two are intimately interrelated. And so it must be the case within. "Being The One" means coming from the infinite potential of The One and into Being - constantly!

If there's any resistance to this immaculate flow, then the ego takes ahold, tries to control it, and thrust it into a manageable eddy current to numb the pain the resistance causes. Blow that dynamic up by 7 billion and you have society. But ultimately the eddy current must unravel, since it is predicated on a detachment from the interconnectivity of the Universe, which is simply not sustainable.

The Orchestra of Life

So it becomes about embodying these immaculate qualities of being. Consider the flow of the soul as an orchestra with many different instruments. As the music ebbs and flows, swells and softens, different groups of instruments join together in a rolling dance of harmonies. Each moment invites a new harmony, a new expression. So it is with the soul. Your landscape is constantly inviting the freedom of new expression. And it's this beingness that shapes authentic reality.

It may sound like a tall order. A great complexity to master. Yet the point is, that through your soul, you are seeded to do it. That's the purpose of life itself - to express oneself fully and honestly. And there's nothing else going on. Period. You just have to keep taking out the trash that gets in the way, then committing yourself to the immaculate expression of rightness, in any given moment. What begins as an instrument playing a solo, becomes a section harmonising together, becomes an entire orchestra playing a masterpiece!

So the key is to find the instruments, the new aspects of beingness to embody. Here are the 7 key ones to pay attention to, known as 'rays of consciousness'. When you pay attention to their possibility, then a resonance will strike up and you'll find yourself playing that particular note and harmony...

Ray 1: purposeful creative will Ray 1 is the driving sense of purpose to create. It is the manifestation of the divine masculine principle throughout the universe. From the place of separation, it is that undeniable inner will to find and create a higher level of harmony both within ourselves and between all sentient beings. It causes us to challenge and break apart the status quo which may be holding us in a lower level of realisation. The Ray 1 inspires life’s motivational leaders.

Ray 2: surrendering unconditional love Ray 2 initiates the impulse of unconditional love for life. It is the manifestation of the divinely feminine principle of surrendered acceptance throughout the universe. It is the empathising compassion that willingly embraces, does not judge nor need to change the inherent imperfection in all sentient life and situations. Ray 2 strongly inspires the selfless servants of life.

Ray 3: interpreting authentic reality Ray 3 harnesses and processes higher abstract wisdom delivering it in a form to provide a clear interpretation of our current, authentic reality. In other words, it’s how we know what’s really real. People with strong Ray 3 influence notice the natural patterning in life bringing the formless into form in such a way that can be understood and appreciated by many. Ray 3 inspires life’s translators, creative artists and mathematicians.

Ray 4: harmonising through right resolution Ray 4 is the divine rationalising energy which helps us find right resolution with our environment and other sentient life. It is the ray impulse which blends passion with compassion. It provides the discernment to confront unjust situations in a non judgmental way. Its purpose is to break apart the lower harmony to find a more equitable higher one. People with highly active Ray 4 tend to be life’s diplomats, politicians and teachers.

Ray 5: realising abstract higher wisdom The Ray 5 enables us to hold the infinite complexities of the universe as pure knowing within our beingness. This ‘science’ is abstract, all encompassing and rather than realised, is more sensed, as an art form, like poetry in perpetual motion. Ray 5 enables us to attune to the universal flow and harness it for co-creative exploration, deeper understanding and further evolution. The Ray 5 animates life’s scientists and creative business leaders.

Ray 6: yearning self expression Ray 6 inspires us stay continually focussed on our life’s purpose: to realise, unfold and express who we really are. It generates commitment and devotion to our cause, radiating our soul in all its brilliant colour. The Ray 6 provides the unquenchable driving force to express our innate qualities and inspire others to shine their inner light too. Humanity’s philosophers, spiritual leaders and performing artists are all driven by the Ray 6 influence.

Ray 7: shaping synchronistic magic Ray 7 provides the ingredient of pure magic on our life’s journey. If we are able to master our inner distortions and pause just long enough in the drama of life, then we can open up to spontaneous, synchronistic and co-creative magic. Thereby we catalyse and initiate the surrounding field for the maximum benefit and upliftment of all. In this way, Ray 7 inspires life’s ‘magicians’ and entrepreneurs.

Thriving in 5D

You can thrive in 5D right now, by finding the harmonies of beingness in any given moment. It does take a lot of mastery and commitment. You're constantly looking for that new expression of being, that new animation - taking the old situations of your life, in your relationships, jobs and general living circumstances and committing to doing things differently: you open a wide internal space through the conditioning, the tried and tested. You'll need to summon courage at this point, because there'll be a zillion reasons why not to. But if you persist, if you soften and push through, then from the space you create, that spark of higher knowing or the heartfelt pull will come through.

The crucial difference in creating from 5D as opposed to the defunct 3D, is that you come from the question NOT the answer. What I mean is that in the 3D, it is predicated on knowing what you want (which mostly comes from the ego and poverty consciousness) then using logic to plan the steps of how you get from A to Z. In 5D you simply open yourself up to the Universe and ask, "Show me!" Signs and synchronicity will reflect the new aspects of beingness wanting to come through (harmonies of the 7 rays). As you embody and express these, that's when the multidimensional landscape shapes around you. Things start to magically click in. A pathway opens up. New creations manifest, new connections form. After a while, you feel like you're dancing with the divine.

It's worth the commitment. It's worth the endeavour. Each step unveils more of your immaculate being, which feels fulfilling, abundant and supported by the flow itself. I do believe it's what the soul of humanity is now yearning for most - to ride the wave of the interconnected flow, and to thereby thrive in 5D consciousness.

To conclude with, here's Openhand's video viewpoint on that...

Hi Open,

i wanted to express my deepest gratitude to you for the recent 5Gateways course. It was the moment for me to get a much better understanding about the practicality of the even rays. After the retreat i felt like my transfiguration can come to a completion if my lower self makes space for it. No more obstacles left really, just constant intellectual engagement that needs cutting back.

I am just back in Mali for my second visit this year and it feels again like a dominant ray 4, finding my balance again in this country and job. I'm getting quite good at this going back and forth. Constant adaptation. Then there is a strong ray 5 activation for my own spiritual service when looking at the current global situation, which is guided by ray 6, wanting to find my true authentic expression in all of that. Ray 1 and 2 feel quite balanced at this and Ray 3 is a bit over-active, whcih calls for some more time off the computer and phone.

This is really interesting to observe and to see how the harmonic is shifting and moving. Also to feel my way through to the most authentic combination of rays that wants to come through in a certain situation.

Wow! Much love,


Have you come across the "F*CK THAT" meditation? It's tremendously good at helping you let go of anythng you might need to, especially in these crazy times - and letting go is a sure way to more expanded consciousness. Apparently Buddhist monks across the world are using it to great effect, as a parody. Maybe originally the meditation was meant as a joke, but nevertheless, I think it could be exceptionally good at letting go of anything that might be challenging or frustrating you in the physical at this time.

I do however offer a word of caution. As amusing and effective as it is, I ask the question, does it truly help you process what's coming up? Or does it simply encourage disassociation and denial? Are you actually working through the attachment or simply distancing from it. And also, in terms of "Thriving in the Shift", does it actually deny the opportunity to open out through the densities?

Parody or not, personally I think it's a great way to let go and come deeper into peace, centering more into presence. But then it's essential also to come forth from this place and engage in life's challenges too - that being the path to higher 5D consciousness. Decide for yourself. Whatever the case, it's certainly amusing!...


I was out in Glastonbury yesterday. I went into town for a coffee, and had my favourite plant based lunch at "The Rainbow's End" followed by a piece of heavenly raw chocolate pie at "The Excalibur" (the sword of truth no less!). Although there were a lot fewer people around than usual, those that were, I can tell you were light, relaxed and expansive - not contracting into fear that this global concoction would have us do.

I strongly maintain that if you look after your system, everything will be fine. If you consume plant based food, drink water that's as pure as possible, load up on Vitamin C, minimise the electrosmog and do plenty of meditation to open the pineal, everything will be just hunky dory.

As I've said plenty of times before, this is NOT the time to contract down and play it small. One of the most refreshing things I observed happening at last week's Eden Rise Thrive in 5D Retreat, was how the global pandemic was increasing our sense of resolve and commitment to the Ascension Shift. That's what the 20:20 synchronicity clearly reveals - the parting of the waves: either going with the synthetic reality agenda, or else emerging from it as Cosmic Divine Beings. I can tell you at Eden Rise it was definitely the latter!

Bahahaha! that really made me laugh! I so needed a good giggle. That was gold!

A sense of humour is crucial in this climate so thankyou for sharing.

Much love

I would say perhaps the most fundamental point in creating from 5D as opposed to 3D or 4D, is to be coming from the question not the answer. What do I mean?

The crucial difference in creating from 5D as opposed to the defunct 3D, is that you come from the question NOT the answer. What I mean is that in the 3D, it is predicated on knowing what you want (which mostly comes from the ego and poverty consciousness) then using logic to plan the steps of how you get from A to Z.

After a while, you feel like you're dancing with the divine.

It does of course take the courage to let go and let it all just flow. But you'll be amazed that when you do, just how supported by the flow you start to feel. It always brings you to another step, another possibility, another creation.

Why not give it a whirl!
