At times like these

Its at times like this that the rainbow bridge that is our collective experience becomes most manifest; and that bridge (whatever it happens to look like…it might appear like no other rainbow we have ever seen…) is the fourth dimensional bridge to the fifth dimension and beyond. When it appears, everything seems to fragment, to separate more than we have experienced before, just as light refracts through a prism to reveal its individual colour components. It has to do this, to show its true colours you could say…so that we each get to choose our own way through and across rather than being swept along by the rather muddy paintbrush of where we have been so far or ‘the way things have always been done before’. Its like getting to dip our brush in the water and choose for ourselves from the vast palette of all possibility.

In the third dimension, all our experiences seems so thick and soupy, mixed together into an illusion of ‘all-inclusiveness’ and being ‘all there is’ that we hardly know what is really us, what our options are and what has been superimposed upon us by this apparently fixed and intractable viewpoint of ‘reality’ that is all we have known so far. We feel so immersed in it all that we can hardly sense there is any other way of being or a way out into a more expansive reality; in fact, we often have to chisel our way out using the sharp edges of what seem like personal disasters and our lives collapsing (at the time) just to gain that very first chink of light glinting through to show us the way to start our own personal expansion. We get to do this at both the personal and collective levels and right now, as a collective, we are effecting what feels like disaster and chaos in order to break ourselves out of our wearisome holding space. Having been through my own personal version of breakdown before, this tells me we are on the very brink of an evolution and the birth of a whole new expanded reality.

imageThe rainbow bridge is the route across to the fifth dimension…since only by initially seeming more fragmented does our experience reveal an evolutionary pathway offering the potential to expand our reality beyond our wildest dreams. What initially seems like only ‘more separation’ serves to remind us that the rainbow is made up of every colour we know and infinitely more that we have yet to experience and incorporate. What is so important is to appreciate the beauty of all the parts that make up the whole, however unfamiliar; to remember how the whole relies on many viewpoints, many subtle hues to make the rainbow that leads us across to a new perspective that incorporates everything in a way that has nothing to do with soup (all the individual flavours lost, some of the least wholesome ingredients hidden) and everything to do with LOVE. And as we start to see our infinitely diverse human experience as it really is, laid out to select from as though turning our dial through every posible bandwidth to get to the one we really want to listen to, we also get to notice some of the colours, bandwidths (whatever analogy you want to use…) that feel off to us, which we once protected ourselves from or tried to put fingers in ears/ hands over eyes and pretend weren’t ‘happening’ at all. In this intermediary ‘place’ there is no hiding, no pretence, but there is still the potential for manipulation, for one voice to shout louder than another. We are being asked to step up to the plate, to ‘grow up’ and live our truth as a consciousness by owning what is and standing by our own way in the face of alternate opinions. Inevitably, we are forced to ‘see’ things that trigger our fundamental sense of security, our very desire to be here…and so this can feel like a descent into more chaos and faction, feelings of not belonging or enjoying this world…before things start to feel infinitely better.

What we need to do at this time is remember this and hold onto it: the fourth is just a passing place and we all have to pass through it (individually and collectively) on our way to something far more expansive and heart-driven…and our way through can be made arduous or surprisingly easy and graceful. In this ‘place’ we can no longer pretend that any man is an island, that all of this has nothing to do with us and so it can feel like a crash back to earth to those who would rather pretend that to be a spiritual human is to detatch. Our social media, our TV and news channels live in this place, they ARE of this dimension as the outward manifestation of the collective consciousness that is in the midst of its (re)birthing pains. These aspects, which we at once deride and yet almost universally succumb to, serve to flag up the degree of manipulation and fear that have run amok beneath the surface of the third dimension for so long and which are now being made quite obvious everywhere we turn. This seems chaotic as the grand reveal of everything builds up its head of steam. We sense panic everywhere we look and that panic only seems to fuel more panic so where are we to go, what can we do…everyone seems in such disarray, not knowing which way to turn…but, looked at another way, this also flags up that at least people are now CONSIDERING which way to turn, not just being swept along with the relentless tide!

We are all starting to see the myriad ways that we have been ‘played’…are being played…by the politics, media, marketing and spin of this current reality and, while this makes for the appearance of more chaos, seeing all this nonsense fully for the first time is just part of the way out of where we have been holed-up for so long as though in a very deep sleep, unaware of all our latent potential as consciousness in human form. We are, in effect, walking through a corridor between rooms. So, just like passing through any overcrowded hallway with so many people jostling this way and that, simply keep a cool head and unflustered heart then focus on which doorway you are headed for, don’t get distracted, waylaid or brought down by other peoples’ stuff, just watch with passive interest and stay centred and calm within yourself as the embodiment of grace. With great poise, set out to carry yourself across that space exactly like you would manouver a drink across that same crowded hallway and without spilling so much as a single drop on the floor for all people elbow you and dart across your path…and if you do loose a little drink, accept this with good grace and keep moving forwards whilst remaining present with all you encounter (this is not about remaining separate from other people but about holding your own space). Focus on what you love. Appreciate absolutely everything. Be prepared to meet all people and situations from the heart; no longer walling up this most vital and intuitive part of your navigation kit. And if there was ever a time to realise the immense power of visualisation, now is that time. We birthed ourselves knowingly into this exact point in ‘time’ to be part of this very moment so do what you do best (whatever that thing is) enthusiastically and without a single jot of apology to anyone, including yourself, and radiate all the love that you are into the world; this is your vast contribution to whatever is playing out on the world stage right now.

Together we ARE the rainbow bridge of many colours leading to a fully integrated human realisation of a multi-dimensional reality. Whatever it looks like at ground level, we are getting there all together…essentially, together (no exceptions, whatever part we play)…and, at a level hard to always ‘see’ with our eyes, though we can choose to sense it with our ever expanding higher-sensory skills, all is well. Know this truth as best you can and radiate it in all your choices and you will be serving the whole world, all your loved ones and yourself at the most powerful and transformative level imaginable.

About Helen White

Helen White is a professional artist and published writer with two primary blogs to her name. Her themes pivot around health and wellbeing, expanded consciousness and ways of noticing how life is a constant dance between the deeply subjective and the collective-universal, all of which she explores with a daily hunger to get to know herself better. Her blog Living Whole shines a light on living with high sensitivity, dealing with trauma and healing from chronic health issues. Spinning the Light is an extremely broad-based platform where she elucidates the everyday alchemy of relentless self-exploration. A lifetime of "feeling like an outsider" slowly emerged as neurodivergence (being a Highly Sensitive Person with ADHD, synaesthesia, sensory processing challenges and other defecits overlapping with giftedness). All of these topics are covered in her blogs, written from two distinct vantage points so, if you have enjoyed one of them, you may wish to explore the other for a different, yet entirely complimentary, perspective.
