CHAPTER 3:  REACHING FOR 4TH DENSITY.
In general, entering a New Earth Reality feels as if you just crash-landed on a strange new planet.
It will appear somewhat different to your eyes, and 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,  and then understand
Who You Really Are  and 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,  and in ways that never-before existed on
Earth. In the months and years ahead  there will be other really big changes in this
New Reality
Cycle
,  but we will continue with the basic survival & evolutionary project or ambitions that we are
formulating now.

There is a  definite  
Ending  of  old patterns of life now__ a sense  of being  freed  from 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 make happen ourselves.

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

                                      Ascending to a 4-D Threshold
Earthly lives are Learning Processes through which we develop our Consciousness to the
vibrational frequency levels enable us to ascend to the next higherdensity of a new reality.

Since 12-21-12, humanity has been attempting to move into the Fourth Density's various 13 Oct-
ave levels
.

This is where we humans begin working with Energy, instead of physical forms. We also
learn to deal with Time & Space.

We call this transition through the various Densities,  "Ascension"__  but we really don't  "go" any-
where physically__we are in the same Earth Reality__but we can then OPERATE through various
Densities.

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

Each Density has 13 Octaves__ or Steps__that must be activated before we can rise to the
next octave.
 

Life is usually improved 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 to the next level. It is not nec-
essary 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 appro-
rpriate for our individual program.

Mastering Meditation, Dreamwork  and the various  "Octave-Levels" of each Density will enable 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 various dimensions and to higher densities

Octave 1: of the 3rd Density, where most humans now exist, asked us to Bond with Ea-
rth & Nature
, and change our lifestyles in a manner which  respects and cares for Earth and Her
lifeforms__ 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.  Sci-
ientists now tell us that Earth is moving into a highly energized area of space, & 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 Her,  move into meditation__ preferably in or close to  Nature__ send Uncondit-
ional Love down, down into Her Core, and wait for a loving signal to return to your heart. Then still
holding Love in the heart, ask Her for help with questions about diet, clean water, manifesting your
material needs, nourishment, health and care for your body.

By spending quiet time in  Nature,  communing with plants,  animals, and even mountains,
rocks or minerals, we recover ancestral wisdom stored as DNA  n 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 b
y sitting in the sunlight with Love in my heart, gently stro-
king the inured area with my golden wedding ring for 10 minutes a day, over a week's time.

An even closer  Bond with Earth and Nature can result,  perhaps, in living a simpler, more nomadic
lifestyle. Healing methods shift towards the herbal and alternative methods.  One remains aware of
the Ascension Process and may find it necessary to move to new locations where they will be bett-
er able to perform new works, new projects.

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

Hobbies, entertainment and 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 and
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.

Octave 2: Relationships with Earth, Nature &/or the Creative Arts can awaken our "Sleep-
er" consciousness and propel us into "The Seeker" Stage of Consciousness Evolution
.  
Soon we become aware of a Secret Inner Life, passionately desire it__ and begin to seek it with all
our mind & heart..

Octave 3: Connecting With Spirit Within. (Chapter 2: "Connecting With Spirit Within.")

1-15-89: MEDITATION, St. Louis, MO.: "Active Intelligence is contact with Universal Divine Con-
sciousness
and the capacity to adapt our individual minds to such regular contact. Then, to apply
our
mind to adapt to the tasks at hand. Divine Love__ Unconditional Love__ is contacted and a-
pplied in the same way.
This Creative Process then,  is ever-changing,  ever-adapting & mov-
ing. It is a continuous MOTION of Divine Mind and Love."

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

"We know it is difficult to bring through the vibrations in the center of a metropolitan area conges-
tion. 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 fell so low in consci-
ousness,  hat 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 and knowledge is way ahead of past knowledge. But this is not necessar-
ily true.

Octave 4: 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  that shares similar interests with us  is amazingly helpful  in our consciousness  evolution
work.  Discussions on dreams,  meditations or  unusual experiences  with others help 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  person-
al uniqueness with team work.  Several artists garnered ideas through their dreams. One received
duing regular meditation.  A coach and teacher would  "hear" a word or two upon waking,  or while
out jogging in the morning.  The words later proved to be key s unlocking  a new project he'd plan-
ned__ and He also__ like five percent of the practicing artists,  connected with ideas  while watch-
ing and listening to other people;  then adjusting those ideas to his own current needs.  Several in-
dividuals intuited 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, the Joyful, Loving interaction between Self, Inner Guidance,
materials & environment.
Like a Passion-Play performed only once, the very Dance of Creation
__ A Multi-Density Journey__ is the supreme work of art.

We all__ artists or not__ are Creators,
We need to keep replenishing ourselves from Inspirational sources, firing ourselves up through the
physical senses as well as through stimulating interests,  happy memories,  music,  breathing  exer-
cises,  time spent in 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 sculptures
; a blocked writer  might dance or swim;  a burned-out entrepren-
eur build sand castles on the beach.

Groups of people meditating and praying  at a sacred site  have been known to  transmute
their energy from that site t o another sacred site,  to themselves,  to other people & even
to the Cosmos for healing.
There follows a complete shift in consciousness,  life-styles, relation-
ships, social security and standing among the Spiritual Group.

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

Octave 5:  Following some of these suggestions,  it's not long  before  "The Seeker " can
sense the  Other Side of Life,  eventually entering the  
"First Enlightenment Stage. " Pe-
ople at spiritual seminars and metaphysical conferences  like to share stories of  how they got their
first  "
pop"__ the unusual event that triggered their electrifying awakenings. Classic triggers are an
incredible 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 wishing:
"
This will win prizes at the exhibitions", for example. The unfamiliar can be frustrating, even scary.  
But to the determined:
Change is an  important  element  of both  creativity and  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 6: "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
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 and generous__ but emotion-
ally 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 an empty bucket. 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 heard
: "God is Love"__ Unconditional Love?  Love must be "felt" in the heart rather than sim-
ply  "thought" in the mind. To truly
feel love, r ecall a moment or period in life  when you were  hap-
piest, when you most enjoyed being alive. Was it when you were 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 spot in nature, 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 REQUIREMENT__ 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 some 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 an d Higher Creative Energies. We must go through the
heart. We can reach the Physical through Mind, but
:

Only Heart__ Emotion__ links us  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 t o physical activity  and intellect__
learning 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 hoops. We see ourselves hurlng 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__ and  nothing can  destroy
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 never will
leave us, unless we choose to forego it.
 

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

If Creator-Spirit Withi n I
S Unconditional Love__ and we were "created"  as a hologram of
that Creator-Spirit__ then  WE ARE  A POWERFUL CREATIVE FORCE  OF UNC0NDITIONAL
LOVE, AS WELL.

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 unconditionally.

Creator 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"__ t 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__
lessons to
be learned
stemming from fear and ignorance.

Our Feelings are our Teachers.
Once we learn to  balance those feelings,  to get out o f Fear  and into  Love__, the needed supp-
ort 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 freq-
uency 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 to give
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
