I have noticed a big increase in trolling and negativity in the social media space lately, and while it’s distressing to see how vile some people can be, it is a distraction and another aspect of this ascension cycle. It’s getting crowded on the 4D bridge now, the pathway between 3D and 5D, and it represents a choice that we have to make. Do we stop our forward motion and resume our Martyred Healer roles, waiting for everyone to catch up or do we push forward and continue to create the 5D path that others will eventually follow?
Empaths, energy workers, healers, and people with spiritual inclinations are among the most compassionate, loving beings on earth. And this love and compassion can extend to wanting to help everyone, which is a good thing. Together with our belief that ascension is the path that everyone can, will, and should take, it creates confusion as to where our work should take us and what we are supposed to do on behalf of humanity. Do we stop what we’re doing and help others catch up when we see the crowd on the 4D bridge, or do we leave them to their choices and let them ‘suffer’ while we’re having fun in the 5D playground? The answer may surprise you.
You have heard me say many times that the universe is just, it is not kind, which means it is totally non-judgmental and has no opinion about anyone’s journey or progress. It recognizes every person as being energetically sovereign, which means that it is fully supportive of our choices, no matter what they are. The farther we go on the 4D bridge the more non-judgmental we must become too, sharing our shining light as a beacon for others to see and embody, without pausing to see if they do. Everyone gets to make their own choices, even if we think their choices are bad, it is not our place to judge them as that is their karmic cycle at play and they need to and must do exactly what they are doing for their own journey to wholeness and congruence, which is part of the ascension journey.
Meanwhile, it’s getting crowded on the 4D bridge as people step onto it and then realize the consequences of that choice, so they stop moving forward until they can figure out their next steps. If they’re scared they will do what they can to try to pull others back to where they are, so they will engage in verbal violence, trolling, judgment, and criticism in an attempt to create the 3D energy they are familiar with. Can they make us feel ‘sorry for them’ and interrupt our journey so they don’t have to move forward any more? That’s one tactic. Another one is to call us selfish and mean because we are in a different energy space that they want to access without making any changes in their own energy frequency and vibration. See my article on Spiritual Shaming here.
At the same time this is all happening, the 3D paradigms are dis-integrating and the 3D paradigm they are familiar with is no longer there, it’s full of holes and is being inundated with 5D energy. So they’re stuck on the 4D bridge with only two options, stand still or move forward, and they are upset, angry, scared, and confused. Those of you who are sensitive and compassionate feel their pain and you have to decide what you do next. Do you pause your forward movement and go back to help them or do you shine more brightly so they have a brighter light to help them make their choice to move forward less overwhelming?
If you selected the shining more brightly option, you are correct. But they may see that as another sign of irritation and not be inspired by your light. They may feel that you are ‘outshining’ them and highlighting their limitations. They may accuse you of thinking that you are ‘better’ than they are and call you names. Or they may twist your words and accuse you of saying things you did not say. Remember they are part of the crowd on the 4D bridge, unsure of what to do to move forward, afraid of the changes that are happening in their lives, and they want to re-create their 3D realities even though they are no longer available.
Ascension is a collective journey but an individual path. Everyone is ascending but in their own way, at their own pace, and moving towards their own outcome. The big ascension does not exist, as we won’t all arrive at the same destination at the same time or achieve the same frequency and vibration. Instead, we will have smaller ascension cycles that we complete depending on our soul mission, karmic cycles, lessons, and what we can and are willing to ascend to in this lifetime.
The 4D crowd will begin to thin out as some people find the courage to shine more brightly and separate from those who want and need to take their time to make their choice. Eventually everyone will arrive at the place where they feel safe, comfortable, and aligned with their energy. And that probably won’t be the same for everyone but that’s OK because it’s a continuously renewing process and if someone doesn’t have the courage to complete their 4D bridge crossing now, they may re-think that choice at a later time.
What will inspire and encourage them eventually is the presence of the brightly shining lights ahead of them, letting them know that some people have successfully made the journey and they can move away from the 4D bridge crowd and not only will they be safe once they find the courage to start moving forward to a new 5D reality, but someone will be there to welcome them when they arrive.
