To Reach for the 5th Dimension

All photos in this blog are from the Dhuni Fire garden this morning

When I look at the Dhuni Fire garden, a bit tattered now by the chill of fall but still radiant, I bow in gratitude to a garden that has offered up so much healing energy to so many for thirty years.

I recall the many mandalas that have existed in this garden space since 1993, and I am still startled by their complexity and the specificity of their healing vibrations.  The many mandalas that have blossomed in this place have each brought so much more than seems possible.  The Flowers in this garden always welcome the light pouring down into them with such complete abandon that something well beyond three dimensional reality is grounded in the garden. Thanks to the Flowers and all our partners here, this is the spot on which the whole of Green Hope Farm spins.

The initial garden in this space back in 1993 was called the Eight Garden. Not surprisingly, the garden design was a pine needle path in the shape of the number Eight embraced by rows of primarily purple and orange Flowers. After that first season, the garden became known as the Venus Garden.  A combination Flower Essence is made from the Venus Garden each year, and these can be found in the Venus Garden section of the website. This year’s Essence is the incomparable Dhuni Fire Essence.

The Venus Garden is a mystery.  Wondrous things happen here.  In that first season of 1993, many spontaneous healings occurred at the center of the garden where the lines of the eight crossed. One memorable healing for all of us in attendance was when a dear beloved with AIDS came for a healing.  During our time with him, we received the message that he would not die of AIDS. In 1993 this was considered impossible, so this message shattered our preconceptions about AIDS and pretty much everything else.  This beloved is still alive.

In so many ways this garden blew our assumptions out of the water.  It still does this each and every growing season. If you have the opportunity to work with any of the Venus Garden Essences, you may have felt this ever loving but always dimension shattering energy. 

I thought today I would share a message we received in 1993, the year we were open to visitors.  We had been told in an earlier message that the Eight Garden existed in the fifth dimension.  We had no understanding of what this meant. Then spontaneous moments occurred where “random” people sat down in the center of the garden and unique healing events happened.  These healings in the garden began to reveal the nature of the fifth dimension where things moved in and out of manifestation and form with much greater ease. But still we had questions.  We still do!  

As I have mentioned before, these messages began in May of 1993 when the four of us planting all the healing gardens came to loggerheads over our different opinions about garden priorities. Gardeners can be strong willed and ours pulled us in four different directions.  Mired in disagreements, it seemed unlikely we would be ready for visitors in a few short weeks.

In despair, I was prompted to go sit at the computer and ask for guidance.  After receiving a message that helped us continue on in greater harmony and oneness, I was asked to check in for messages every day at 5 am. Each afternoon, the four of us would collect our questions for the nexxt day’s guidance. The next morning after receiving answers to our questions and a whole lot more,  I would print out copies of what I had received. When the farm opened for visitors on the Solstice, we kept a book of the messages there for visitors to read.  The book grew to over three hundred pages (which will surprise no one who knows how much I like to write!). 

At the time of this specific message, it was early June, and the four of us were doing the last of the planting with the designs we had received from the Angels and Elementals.  We had no idea how many people were about to arrive and we had no real conception of the power of all the gardens we had created, most especially the Eight Garden.

While the discussion begins in the specificity of planting, it becomes a discussion of how to move forward when people don’t agree with us and don’t resonate with our choices to reach for the fifth dimension and ground it, as best we can, here in our daily life on earth.

This is a day in which to stay fully present in your present reality and not move forward or backward in time or space.  Make the act of planting each plant an intentional act of bringing heaven to earth.  It has always been the intention to have this happen in the places of nature on this planet but it seldom happens when there are people involved because their need to get a certain response or product from what they do in nature interferes with the full manifestation of heaven on earth.  

How can you bring about the greatest realization of what I want to accomplish here?  Give up any notions you have of what is going to happen because they are all limiting notions, developed in the lower dimensions.  You must understand that the world is moving…into fifth dimensional reality and most of you have only conscious recollections of third dimensional reality… You need to stop your worries about how many plants or what they look like amassed in the gardens or how they will mix because it is all three dimensional concerns and ego concerns at that.  You do not know what can be accomplished with one plant in the fifth dimension or you would most certainly ease up in your concern about the way the number of plants in the eight garden seems to slip lower and lower.  

Let go and let the energies I bring this place manifest as I see fit.  This place is a forerunner of what is to come and does not operate on third dimensional rules and regulations.  Each time you find yourself feeling anything that is not a complete openness to a new vision, you are caught in useless dogma.  Dump it.  

In your struggles amongst each other you may not always be in solidarity about something.  You may be holding a lone point of view that is not where the rest of the group is.  If you examine the threads of this conviction and know it is not tied to ego fears and worries then understand that if you are the lone individual in the group holding a different way of being or doing then perhaps you are the first in the group to catch a fifth dimensional strand that it is your job to pull down into reality.  Hold on courageously even if the others look at you askance.  

This whole place will be something that others may not understand or agree with you about.  Consider these times of being tested a chance to practice your skills of holding onto my vision in the face of skeptics.  It is your chance to decide who or what is going to run your life; approval and acceptance from ego bound individuals or the light within you.  It is your chance to love unconditionally those that do not understand, those that resist the fundamental changes in all reality which such gardens as this usher in, and those that would turn on you in fear and self doubt.  Love them and let them go.  

Know that if you hurt then you must come to me for solace.  I am your rock and your comfort.  I am the one who understands the purposes behind each instant in your life.  I am the one that calls you to this work which will require that your connection to me is rock solid.  You will face many critics in the heated days that lay ahead, and you will only find the inner calm and fearlessness you seek if you do this work with me, for me and comforted by me.

Question:  What should I do when I am aware of these currents of disapproval, judgment and misunderstanding, and I feel so alone.  How can I connect most fully with you to feel the comfort which you speak of?

Answer:  Once you truly understand that you will never get the love and acceptance that you are searching for from anywhere else but me, then you will stop putting any energy into trying to get it elsewhere.  That alone will be a major breakthrough for all of you.  

When you are hurting, most humans are like animals without healing instincts.  They head straight for the very situation in which the wound was created, and they exacerbate the situation and the wound again, thinking that is the only place that healing can come from.  Healing will never come from reopening the situation.  It is unrealistic and unproductive to assume that if someone has called you a hurtful name that battering away at them until they take it back will cure the situation.  Even if they take it back, you have left it a situation in which you have given your power and self worth in the situation away to this other person’s ego.  There can be no strong balance or centeredness until you realize with all your being that it doesn’t matter in the slightest what anyone else thinks of anything you do.  If you do it in alignment with me and come to me for the love and support that you need and deserve then you truly begin to have the immutable, centered, balanced life which is your birthright.  

When you are aware that you feel hurt or judged, remember that it is only the part of the person operating in the dark that is sending out that energy.  Take the time to immediately go inward to ask me to help you through the pain or difficulty you feel and to help clarify for you whether there is something to be learned from what has been said.  If you are looking for vindication or understanding from outside yourself then you are still looking for it in the wrong place.  

The wisest teacher in the world is not meant to be your permanent emissary from me to you.  All of you are called to have a personal relationship with me.  The teachers are here to return you to this, not run interference.  Your own training is to give your power away to whomever you like, admire or emulate.  See them as a facet of me shining their own unique light so that you can better see the light within you.  Then use your energies to look to the light within you, not copy their light or try to get them to approve of your light.  The most vital relationship you will ever have is with me.  It is all you need or ever will need.  Turn and come inward to me.  Understand that the challenges of those that disapprove of you or misunderstand you are my way to get you to give up what you do not need and find the relationship with me that you do need.
