CHAPTER 3:  REACHING FOR 4TH DENSITY.
In general, entering a New Earth Reality feels as if you just crash-landed on a strange new pla-
net.  It will appear somewhat different to your eyes,  &it will work  by different rules. The first thing
you have to do  is check your body over to make sure you are Physically Intact
; second is to und-
erstand  
Who You Really Are;  and third, to check what  Experiences and Inner Wisdom you have
within that will help cope with this sudden huge shift. This is where our attention is focused now__
and where we will attract intense development and change through  these matters.

We are starting something new__ something unknown__ in ways that never-before existed on Ear-
th.  In the months & years ahead there will be other really big changes in this
New Reality Cycle,
but we will continue with the basic survival & evolutionary projects or ambitions that we are formu-
lating now.

There is a definite
Ending  of old patterns of life now__ a sense of being freed  rom the past__ of
chains being cut. What we're now starting is symbolic.  We have to
do something for ourselves__
be a bit selfish now__ even if we don't consciously know why.

1. Something occurs__ we do something__ take action. It's not a thing that happens to us,
but what
we ourselves make happen.

2. Whatever we do now  also symbolizes what we'll be doing  over the months and years
ahead. It is a very busy time__ life seems intense.

Ascending to a 4-D Threshold
Earth lives are Learning Processes through which we develop our Consciousness to new
vibrational frequency levels  enabling us to ascend  to the next higher density  and a new
reality.
Since 12-21-12, Humanity has been attempting to move into Fourth Density's various 13
Octave levels
.

In 3rd Density, we humans were learning  how to deal with Space.  In 4th Density we'll begin to
experience in both
Space and Time. We'll be working with Energy, rather than physical forms.

We call this transition through the various Densities, "
Ascension"__ but we really don't  "go" any-
where physically__ we're on the same Earth__ but we will be OPERATING through various Dens-
ities.

We are actually pulling in our lost
DNA Strands, by changing our thoughts, feelings, beliefs & act-
ions to more Loving and more Unified states of consciousness.

Each Density has  
13 Octaves__ o r Steps__ that must each be activated  before we can  rise to
the next octave.  

Life usually improve s when we step onto the next higher octave,  but there are always challenges
that encourage us to make additional changes in Self  before we move onto the next level. It is not
necessary to activate these Octave Levels in the order of #1 __#2__ #3 and so on. Most of us will
find that  
Life will  offer us opportunities  to master each particular Octave in the order that is most
approrpriate for our individual program.

Mastering  Meditation,  Dreamwork  and the various  "Octave-Levels" of each Density will ena-
ble us to reconnect with those missing DNA Strands.
       
                                                        
Some humans now existing in 3-D are evolving their consciousness  to be able to work  within 5-D
__ but we must pass through 4-D to reach 5-D;  and when we can work  within the  densities  bey-
ond
5-D,  we must first again pass through 4-D to do so.

Fourth Density is basically A PASSAGEWAY to Higher Densities and their various dimen-
sions.
                                                                               
***
OCTAVE ONE: of the 3rd Density, where most humans now exist, asks us to Bond with
Earth & Nature
,  and change our lifestyles in a manner which  respects and cares for Earth and
Her life-forms__ including we humans.
(Chapter 1: "Bonding With Earth and Nature.").

Bonding with Earth & Nature  is a major step toward  full consciousness. If we care for Earth and
nurture Her,  She will do the same for us__ and we can move with Her  to higher densities.  Scienti-
sts now tell us that  Earth is moving into  a highly energized area of space,  and we are being  bom-
barded by as many as 500 huge energy blasts per day. Whew! No wonder we're tired!

We are now in a Null Zone of Space where all and any Futures can manifest.
The choices made by our Global Collective Consciousness  determine the Future we will soon be
living.
Gaia__ Earth's Spirit Within, will aid us from HER CORE__ the  FIRST DIMENSION__ with
the physical challenges of our lives.

To connect with Gaia, move into meditation__ preferably in or  close to  Nature__ send Uncondit-
ional Love down, down  into Her Core,  & wait for a loving signal  returning to your heart. Then still
holding Love in the heart,  ask Her for help with questions about diet, clean water, manifesting ma-
terial needs, nourishment, or health and care for your body.

By spending quiet time in Nature,  communing with  plants,  animals,  & even  mountains,
rocks or minerals, we recover ancestral wisdom stored as DNA in our bodies' cells.

At the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, after youngsters with Attention Deficit Disorder
spent time in Nature__their symptoms were relieved. The greener the setting,the greater the relief.

Sunlight is Nature's greatest harmonizer. I once healed tendonitis in my left elbow by sitting in
the sunlight  with Love in my heart,  gently stroking the injured area  with my gold wedding ring for
10 minutes a day, over a week's time.

Perhaps an even closer bond with Earth & Nature  can result, when living a simpler, more nomad-
ic lifestyle. Healing methods shift towards the herbal and alternative methods. One remains aware
of the Ascension Process & may find it necessary to move to new locations where they will be be-
tter able to perform new works, new projects.

Some, however, move to where they must deal with Issues from their past lives.

Hobbies, entertainment & material desires  may be forsaken in favor of more  spiritual & metaphy-
sical activities. One may attract information about ascension, its symptoms & the changes to one-
self.  

Children born to us at these times prove to have a greater number of spiritual gifts & abil-
ities, higher IQ's and knowhow.
Creative individuals world-wide are kindred spirits.

With intuition and inspiration from higher realms, we can recapture our original sense of Oneness
with  Earth, Nature & All Life on the planet.  Like pieces of a complex jig-saw puzzle, human genes
hold unused
DNA codes for expanded creativity__ codes waiting to be rediscovered,  activated  &
used once again.

Creative energies running through Earth and Universe are the same as those penetrating
the bodies of humans,  animals,  plants  and minerals__
for all are formed of the "dust"__ the
minerals__ of the cosmos and the planet.

Relationships with  Earth, Nature &/or the Creative Arts can awaken our "Sleeper" consc-
iousness & propel us into  "The Seeker" Stage of  Consciousness Evolution
.  Soon we be-
come aware of  a Secret Inner Life,  passionately desire it__ and begin seeking it with all our mind
and heart..

OCTAVE TWO: Connect With Spirit Within.(Chapter: 2: "Connecting With Spirit Within.")

1-15-89: MEDITATION, St. Louis, MO.: "Active Intelligence is contact with Universal Divine Co-
nsciousness
and the capacity to adapt our individual minds to such regular contact. Then, to ap-
pl
y that mind to adapt to the tasks at hand. Divine Love__Unconditional Love__is contacted  &
applied in the same way.
This Creative Process then, is ever-changing,  ever-adapting & mo-
ving. It is a continuous MOTION of Divine Mind and Love."

"Divine Will & Purpose
, as sensed by the individual mind & applied with  Divine Love , then al-
so involves M OTION__ a movement  & adjustment of Divine Will & Purpose with individual will-
purpose,  moving in Oneness__ but also functioning through  
Intellect & Love.  It is best realized
as Individualized functioning within the sense of
Oneness with Creator Source."

"We know it is difficult  to bring through the vibrations  in the center of a  metropolitan area cong-
estion.  This is part of the learning process for this period in life. Once settled in, we can perform
our daily functions with ease and skill'"

"Continue then, the contacts as before, & begin to move out into the surrounding environment, to
meet & contact as many persons as reasonably capable.  Watch for those who seem drawn to us
and those to whom we are drawn. Both teachers and students shall manifest."
We have finished."

About 13,000 years ago, mankind "fell" greatly in consciousness.
Prior to then,  we had been far,  far more aware of how to live and create well  on the planet. With
The Fall, we humans lost our ability  to consciously attune to The Creative Force__ and later,  the
Great Flood left  only a handful of survivors.  In a few more thousand years,  we fel l so low in con-
sciousness, that except for a few indigenous tribes,  our bond with Earth and Nature disappeared,  
as well.

Instinct is an ancient human cellular memory triggered by our need to survive physically.

Intuition, however, is a spiritual faculty.  

Earth is a library of knowledge to aid us in remembering:  Who We Really Are  and  Why We Are
Here Now
. When we Bond With Nature and drop irresponsible adolescent atttitudes__(blaming or
relying on others to make us happy)__ we connect through Earth  with our  original racial  memory
patterns.

Western cultures have a clear bias toward the mistaken belief that ancient peoples had powers of
cognition that were substantially inferior to modern people. It is typical of today's Western Cultures
to believe that intelligent and conscious evolution always moves in a progressive manner
; & there-
fore, current intelligence & knowledge  is way ahead of past knowledge. But this is not necessarily
true.

OCTAVE FOUR:  Grouping:  Creative Persons__ particularly those  who were  teachers or
coaches__ enjoyed comparing their skills with those of others and finding  the highest and best in
self. Having a Group sharing similar interests with us is amazingly helpful for one's consciousness
work.  Discussions on dreams, meditations or unusual experiences with others helps us move for-
ward on our paths more quickly, and certainly more easily.

One creative person expressed joy in performing well as an individual, while merging his personal
uniqueness  with team work.  Several artists garnered ideas  through their  dreams.  One received
during regular meditation.  A teacher-coach would "hear" a word or two upon waking,  or while out
jogging in the morning. The words later proved to be keys unlocking a new project he'd planned &
he also__ like five percent of the practicing artists,  connected with ideas  while watching  & listen-
ing to other people, then adjusting their ideas to his own current needs. Several individuals intuit-
ed while in the shower,  One even admitted to  getting her best notions  in the bathroom__ seated
on "
the porcelain throne", imagining words expressed from the "tinkles".

A successful outcome is NOT the primary purpose of a Creative or a Spiritual Process. It
is
The Journey__ the Striving, t he Joyful, Loving interaction between Self, Inner Guidan-
ce, materials & environment.
Like a Passion-Play performed only once, the very  Dance of Cr-
eation__ A Multi-Density Journey__ is the supreme work of art.

We all__ artists or not__ are Creators.
We need to keep  replenishing ourselves from  Inspiring sources,  firing ourselves up  through the
physical senses as well as through stimulating interests,  happy memories, music, breathing  exe-
ercicises, time spent with Nature, poetry, prayer, exercise, yoga or tai chi__ even fasting a day or
so__ can re-energize us to access other-dimensional truths. Now and then, a musician can renew
her receptivity  by viewing sculpture
; a blocked writer  might dance or swim;  a burned-out  entre-
preneur build sand castles on the beach.

Groups of people meditating & praying at sacred sites have been known to transmute th-
eir energy from that site to another sacred site, to themselves, to other people & even to
the Cosmos for healing .
There follows complete shifts in consciousness, life-styles, relationshi-
ps, social security and self-confidence.

Metaphysical & astrological information  can be received from off-world visitors,  through
the group channelings,  meditation or during rituals at sacred sites.  New information & teachings
may be structured into formal education systems.  New methods of healing & technologies based
on metaphysical and spiritual knowledge can be invented and later shared with the public.

OCTAVE FIVE: Following some of these suggestions, it's not long before "The Seeker" sens-
es the Other Side of Life,
  eventually entering the "First Enlightenment Stage. " People at
spiritual seminars  and  metaphysical conferences  like to share stories of  how they go  their  first
"
pop"__ the unusual event that triggered their electrifying awakenings. Classic triggers are an in-
credible coincidence,  a severe blow to the head,  an accident or  serious illness,  a lucid dream,  
an amazing mental shock, a vivid vision or even being in a coma.

In the  
First Enlightenment Stage, our greatest strengths are independence  from  mainstream
mindsets & rigid dogmas
.  In order to be more original, artists try to release from  habitual tech-
niques & patterns  that compromise surprise  in their work
: from the stiff, "This is how  to paint  a
sky"
or "This is how to paint a rose" type of approach. Using trite color formulas__or eagerly wish-
ing
:  "This will win prizes at the exhibition",  for example.  The unfamiliar can be frustrating,  even
scary. But to the determined
:

Change is an important element of both creativity & spirituality.  As Creative People work,
they are always asking:  "
What else is  possible?"  or,  "How can I  change my approach to
this subject and discover something new?
"

In the First Enlightenment Stage,  we may discover if we are a "Lightbearer"__ one who walks the
path of  "Light"
;  a "Wayshower",  informing people about "Light",  or even a  "Walk-in", who ent-
ered the physical body of another soul that had to leave Earth before completing its mission. Walk-
ins will take over that soul's mission and strive to complete it.

OCTAVE SIX: "Unconditional Love."
I fly to Minnesota. Dad is in the hospital after surgery and not expected  to live.  He seems better,
but then he sinks into withdrawal. Mom & I are at his bedside. She glances at me curiously now &
then and finally says,"
Marilyn, can't you tell Daddy you love him?"

I'm shocked. Do they think I don't? Aren't I here with them now, having cancelled the week's work-
shop and flown 1700 miles?  But at the same time, I  feel something welling up from  deep within,
and soon I'm trembling with rage. Where is this coming from? Why am I feeling this fury?

Then I know
:  I'm over forty years old__  but I can't recall  a single instance  when another human
being actually stated aloud that they loved me. Incredible!  Impossible!  Yet it's true.  Our parents
were kind and took good care of us, but they never said aloud that they loved us.

During the Great Depression and WWII, people did not impose their feelings or pain on each other.
Their focus was entirely on  Survival
:  having enough to eat,  fuel to stay warm  in winter, tires and
gas for the car to get to work;  prayers for our dads, uncles,  sons, cousins, brothers, grandsons &
friends in the service. Like many,  our family was talented, intelligent & generous__ but emotionally
undemonstrative.

Hal grew up in the same era.  We had frequently discussed marriage,  but never actually used the
words  "
I love you".  Now, I stand here,  being asked to tell my parents  I love them, when I myself
have been inwardly screaming for someone to "please, tell me you love me", for over forty years!

Tears fill my eyes, as I realize that I never said it to my now-grown children, either.  Oh, I praised
and encouraged them, hugged and kissed them, sang lullabies to them, read to them &  told stor-
ies about love,  and tenderly cared for them as best I could.  But I never said those words
:  "I love
you!" I can't believe it!  Why haven't I seen this before?

I want to immediately rush to the phone and  call Hal and the children to tell them how much I do
love them. But, instead, I swallow my rage,  blink the tears away, take Dad's hand in mine, put an
arm around his shoulders__ avoiding all the tubes and wires__ and say,  "
Of course__ I love you,
Dad
."  He looks at me strangely. I'm not sure he heard. Then I understand,  how he, too,  must be
realizing how our family failed to  communicate its feelings.  

Dad closes his eyes, sighs and soon quietly slips away__as if he, too, has been waiting for those
words __ "I  LOVE YOU!"__ to release him from this w
orld.
                               
                                         ***
I stay with Mom for several weeks, telling her often that I love her, & I tell Hal and our children over
the phone.  It seems outrageous  that we could all have been so  close-mouthed about our love for
each other. After returning to Idaho, Mom and I call each other weekly, always expressing our love.  
My relationship with Mom changes
;  a new responsibility creeps into my life. It seems that I've now
become the parent, and she the child. I try to understand what's going on inside my heart.

We came here to Earth as part of a  vast experiment  of having to deal with a  Free Will to
make our Own Choices
,  based on Love for All Concerned__ & it starts with loving ourself.
We fill ourselves with love first, for one cannot pour out from empty buckets.  Loving on-
self allows us the greatest honor and dignity to BE LOVE__to Love self first, then love all
else.

Each of us has a real need to receive and bestow affection and nurturing. Some of us ignore Love,
thinking only poets, artists or deeply religious persons need it__or can make sense of it. How often
have we heard
: "God is Love"__ Unconditional Love?  Love must be  "felt" in the heart rather than
simply "thought" in the mind. To truly
feel love, recall a moment or period in life when you were ha-
ppiest,  when you  most enjoyed  being alive.  Was it when you  reunited  with a  lover?  When you
were married?  When a child was born__ or you landed a great job?  Maybe it was  an exciting va-
cation,  a wonderful gift received,  a favorite nature spot , a person or animal companion you loved
or the achievement of a difficult goal.

Close your eyes and try to
FEEL what was in your heart at that moment. Remember this feeling &
Practice calling it up until you can do so at a moment's notice.
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE IS A RE-
QUIREMENT__ TO MANIFEST &/OR HEAL__ IN THE 4-D or 5-D NEW EARTH REALITY!

No one can make you happy or unhappy unless you yourself Choose To Be So.
 Use Mind
& Heart to evoke happiness within yourself  any time you choose,  rather than  depending upon an
exterior event, person or thing.

Deliberately triggering feelings of Love moves the creative drive up to the high heart__the midpoint
between lower, personal creative energies, and Higher Creative Energies. We
must go through the
heart. We can reach the Physical through Mind, but
:
                                        We must have Love__ to link directly with Spirit.  

The higher energy centers (Chakras)  of the body serve as inspirational portals to expanded levels
of creativity.
 It's not selfish to put ourselves first. Whenever we're making life choices that keep us
less than happy,  it may be because  we don't  value ourselves
;  we are  getting something  out of
playing a "victim-rescuer" game
;  or we don't know Who We Really Are__ so we settle for less. We
settle for less because  we're afraid that if we don't__ we may end up with nothing.  We believe ev-
erything in life has a price
; that Divine Creator-Source wants us to give up or  "sacrifice" one thing
in return for something else. Is that Unconditional Love?

Because we fear we're unlovable we follow a path limited to physical activity & intellect__ learn-
ing more, working harder, longer, smarter__ distracting ourselves from that unspoken fear.

Life does not become  simpler or easier as we seek only achievement upon achievement.  Life be-
comes more & more complicated, because decisions erupt  ever more frequently, demanding ever
more difficult resolutions. We feel like a juggler with too many eggs.  We see ourselves hurling out
hateful thoughts,  crying dry-eyed__ silently wallowing  in the  numbing tangle of superficial, clock-
dictated rituals, never pausing to consider what else in life might lie beneath it all. Some try to esc-
ape from the insanity  by moving away,  only to discover that  settling in a far-off city does not stop
the challenges of life.  Within about two years, most people find themselves right back in the same
old circumstances they thought they had left behind.

We've been taught that "God IS Love"__ Unconditional Love;  so nothing can destroy our
Creator's Love for each of us and for humanity.  

Then who are we to decide we are unlovable?  We don't need to "earn"  Creator's Love, or to earn
"points" towards health, happiness or abundance.  We were born  with that right__ and it will never
leave us, unless we choose to forego it.
 

Creator-Source's Divine Love  is the greatest & most powerful force  in All the Cosmos __
It is THE PRIMARY CREATIVE FORCE.

If Creator-Spirit Withi n IS Unconditional Love, & we were "created"  as a hologram of that Creator-
Spirit__ then
WE ARE A POWERFUL CREATIVE FORCE OF UNC0NDITIONAL LOVE, TOO.

Unconditional Love frees the person we love  to be as they want to be,  go where they wish, do as
they like,  just as they choose. We continue loving them long after they've left __ accidentally or by
choice.  We put no strings on one who is loved unconditionally
;  make no rules  about our relation-
ship with them. We don't even need to be in each other's physical presence in order to continue lo-
ving them unconditionally.

Creator Source  wants us  to be happy.  Unconditional Love  will never conceive of someone  as a
"sinner",  would never consider offering a "hell".  If we find ourselves in any sort of "hell"__ it is our
own state of consciousness__and of our own making.  We can rise above our trauma-dramas, rise
above the trials, sorrows and struggles of the world,  and see them for what they really are__
less-
ons to be learned
stemming from fear and ignorance.

Our Feelings are our Teachers.
Once we learn to  balance those  feelings, to get out of Fear and into  Love__ the needed support
arrives as if by magic.

Transforming Consciousness with Unconditional Love Enhances Our DNA.

DNA and the Transmutation of Consciousness.
DNA alterations affecting  body, mind and emotions result from inherited cellular memories, cosmic
and solar energies caressing Earth, and from Her own uprising energies, speeding up for the Shift.
Consciousness Clearing is central to our evolutionary path. We will soon learn, or rather,remember
__ almost unbelievable skills and knowledges needed for Earth's Shift and Her New Reality.

In the early
1990s, scientists decided that  our DNA describes  What it Means To Be Human. They
found a direct link__ a measurable factor indicating that
: Human Emotion is Electromagnetic in
Nature
and can be measured in wavelengths and frequency vibrations.

Living cells from inside a donor's mouth  were placed in a device  measuring DNA electrically in the
same building.  One room held the DNA sample, and in another, the donor viewed videos that evo-
ked  strong emotional responses.  When the donor had  peak emotional experiences, the DNA res-
ponded with similar emotion,  & without a time lapse.
 Non-locality caused both  Donor and DNA to
respond at  exactly the same instant. The experiment went on to see  just how  far apart  the donor
& DNA had to be  before it stopped working.  They quit after a 50 mile separation  continued giving
the same results.

The
Heart-Math Institute  discovered that loving meditators have  increased salivary IgA,  indicat-
ing enhanced immune system functioning.  Loving meditators also had the ability to  voluntarily aff-
ect the winding and unwinding patterns of  DNA in test tubes__ whether the DNA  was in the same
room, or at a distance of half a mile. In other words, Unconditional Love can change our DNA
