This guide is based on my own perception and experience of the dimensions.
Did you miss my introductory blog post on what dimensions actually are? Read it here
While I view a "11 dimensions" model as being the bare minimum of distinct number of levels, it's important to understand that the exact number of levels perceived can differ from person to person and really, doesn't matter. Rather, the importance lies in the details thereof and what is taken from each level in terms of experiences, learning and growth - which is what they are there for, in the first place;)
1st Dimension: Matter/Universal Collective
The level containing the building blocks of the physical universe -
atomic particles, sub-atomic particles, etc.
The particles themselves are not sentient (self-aware); their purpose is to house consciousness.
In other words: the 1st dimension holds no consciousness of its own per se, but acts as a vehicle to carry consciousness into the physical world. The physical world cannot exist without this level.
1-D houses the universal physical collective
Everything that exists (except for energy - i.e. consciousness) is made up of matter and, as such, this level represents the collective of everything and everyone that has a presence in the physical world - in the past, present or future, everywhere in the universe.
It is at this level that we truly understand, in a physical sense, that we are all one and that separateness is an illusion.
1-D stores the Akashic records of the physical world
Linear time only exists in 3rd dimensional space; this means that at every other level of consciousness (including this one), time is perceived as NON-linear: every moment occurs simultaneously as well as separately, and can be accessed from any point.
The 1st dimension, being the least linear of all physical planes as well as the level of physical unity, is the home to the Akashic records of the physical world (the recordings of all that was, is, and will be), and it is from here that it can be accessed via alpha (meditative) state.
Lower Astral Plane /
This is the level of pure ego and separation -
i.e. no perception of anything but "self"; pure self-absorption, pure selfishness, containing mainly negative polarities of energy (fear-based energies - anger, hate, shame, etc). Some nightmares are experienced from this level of consciousness.
2-D is an astral plane,
containing elementals and other energies - parasites, viruses, bacteria, environmental forces - having no self-awareness and being manipulated by outside forces. As such, they cannot be controlled or reasoned with and the only recourse is auric cleansing and protection.
2-D is the center of our most critical healing needs
In simplest terms, this level houses the darkest aspects of our shadow/ego self - the parts of ourselves that are the most painful and difficult to confront and/or accept; the aspects of our consciousness most on need of healing and that which we MUST heal in order to truly love ourselves.
This level contains the most crucial first steps in the journey towards healing and growth. My view is that the 5th dimension cannot be physically accessed until such time that this level has been healed and resolved.
The Lower Physical World
The physical world, as perceived by Humans and other Earthlings,
based on a linear-time/space reality (and the only level of consciousness to do so).
This is a level of duality (positive vs negative polarities) and heavy karmic energy. Individuals at this level have little or no control over their larger environment and manifestation abilities are heavily limited, and even further impeded by karmic forces and other factors.
Physical senses are limited to 5 (i.e. sight, smell, touch, taste, hearing) and, in some cases, limited further - however, having fewer than 5 functioning senses is NOT a reflection of the individual's level of evolution but, rather, a pre-birth choice made for the purposes of accelerating growth.
3rd dimensional individuals possess low levels of self-awareness and an overall perception of separation from the collective. No awareness of higher levels of consciousness exists here, and individuals are deeply rooted in their 2nd-dimensional ego self - and, as such, live at the mercy of their ego/fear-based emotions and reactions as well as karmic cause and effect.
Heavy karmic influences also mean that life lessons are harsher at this level of physical reality. Individuals experience traumatic events throughout the course of their lives as a means to break down their karmic energy and strip away attachment to the ego-self - and, in doing so, to facilitate forward movement in terms of personal growth.
3-D is where Human (and Earth's) COLLECTIVE consciousness lives
On an individual level it varies but, in general, this level is still the majority norm.
Higher Astral Plane /
The level of feelings and the subconscious mind,
the 4th dimension houses the collective unconscious of those individuals living in 3rd dimensional physical space. (Thoughts and feelings cannot exist in linear-time reality, for this reason they are not housed in the 3rd dimension.)
4-D is the higher astral plane
This is the level of memory, imagination, dream state, nightmares, astral-projection and the lower spirit realm. It's also the level initially - and most commonly - reached by 3rd dimensional individuals when in alpha (meditative) state. (Higher levels are only reached in alpha state after prolonged exposure/practice and after sufficient personal growth has occurred to facilitate access to these levels.)
Home to dark astral beings, as well as light astral beings who have not yet achieved a higher level of growth (some elementals etc), astral abuse is a common occurrence here and auric cleansing and protection is advised.
This is also the level most commonly accessed by psychic/mediums and the like. Your deceased loved ones and personal guides may enter here in order to communicate with you, but they do not necessarily live here.
4-D is a level of illusions
This level of consciousness contains duality (positive vs negative polarities) and, as such, information gained here cannot necessarily be trusted to be the truth, unless you are certain that you are receiving the information from a credible source. In other words, information accessed here may be correct, but it may also be misleading, fear/ego-based in nature or even an outright lie, depending on the motives of the source.
Information received from this level should be regarded with caution, and learning to distinguish fact from fiction is a major lesson for individuals aiming to master this level of consciousness.
4-D provides an important learning platform for 3-D consciousness
Because this is the level at which human feelings and the subconscious mind reside, it is here that negative feelings, ego-based feelings and karmic energy is most readily addressed by human beings for the purposes of healing and growth.
Unlike the 2nd dimension, the negative aspects of consciousness which are housed here are lighter, and less painful and difficult to confront and heal. This means that the 4th dimension is usually the first stage reached in meditation and healing work, until such time that sufficient growth has occurred to enable enough courage to face the more painful 2nd dimensional aspects of the psyche.
Thereafter, most healing tends to take place in 2nd and 4th dimensional consciousness simultaneously.
It is also here that 3rd dimensional individuals first become aware of the concept of manifestation and where they are first able to explore it in more detail, in a safe and consequence-free environment (dream state, fantasy, etc.).
The 4th dimensional is, in essence, a level of magic where all things are possible. Through continued exposure to this level, even using passive methods such as dreaming, the individual is able to expand their awareness of higher states of being until such time as they are able to understand these ideas in their normal waking (3-D) state.
In other words: it is here that 3rd dimensional individuals experience their first spark of awakening.
The Higher Physical World / 5-D Collective Consciousness
The highest level of consciousness able to sustain physical life
Earth's collective consciousness is in the midst of the (very long) process of transitioning from the 3-D to 5-D. Because of this, Earth is currently able to sustain 3rd and 5th dimensional physical life simultaneously. A small percentage of individuals are already physically anchored at this level and many more are fluctuating back and forth between the two levels energetically, until such time that enough growth has occurred for a permanent (and physical) transition to take place.
This energetic fluctuation of the consciousness is referred to as "Awakening", while the final physical transition is called "Ascension".
While Earth houses two levels of physical life simultaneously, it is important to understand that this division and duality is only perceivable by those who are at the 5th dimensional consciousness level - and for a very simple reason: 5th dimensional aspects simply do not exist in 3rd dimensional space and, therefore, cannot be perceived by those who are there.
5-D represents a more evolved and complex version of physical life
This level is of a non-linear time/space reality and, as such, is able to contain physical life as well as the thoughts and feelings of the individuals living here. This makes telepathic communication common here - although, being a skill to be learned, takes time to master.
Being a physical plane, a "passing of time" is still perceived here, but in a different way to the way time is perceived in 3rd dimensional space. 5th dimensional individuals understand that linear time is an illusion and, therefore, approach it as such. A 5th dimensional individual is able to see/access all points in their timeline and beyond. This is one of the reasons why concepts like "fear of death" do not exist in 5th dimensional space.
There are significant differences in physical life here; in the overall appearance of things as well as in the societal structures and the way individuals interact with and treat each other. Concepts that are seen as being absolute in 3rd dimensional space, are more fluid and complex here - some examples include: gender identity and roles, relationships, systems of "government" and the roles of different members and/or species within a society.
Duality (positive vs negative polarities) still exists here but somewhat to a lesser degree:
5-D individuals have mastered the lower levels (1st - 4th dimensions) to the point where they have shed the majority of their karma and have become fully self-aware (within themselves, although are not necessarily within the collective as yet). They have a better understanding of physical as well as energetic form, and of themselves, and therefore have awareness of, and insight into, their subconscious minds.
Another aspect of this awareness is more control over physical matter - including one's own body. A 5th dimensional individual is aware of every cell in their body, giving them greater control over things like self-healing, aging, pregnancy, etc.
This level contains a larger and more complex sensory spectrum - for example, senses are not limited to 5, larger color spectrum and colors themselves appear incandescent and more complex, physical matter "feels" different, etc.
Generally there is symbiosis between members within a society, between different species as well as between individuals and their environment.
Karmic energy still exists here but is lighter and easier to clear. At the very least, individuals have more insight into their own karma and/or healing needs, and are generally more open to confronting and healing their remaining issues. However, at this level they have the freedom over whether or not to do so, as well as the understanding that failure to commit to further growth prevents them from entering 6th-13th dimensional space - because duality cannot be carried further than the 5th.
5-D is a physical plane and ALSO an astral plane
This idea is not as complex as it first appears. All it means, is that physical and non-physical beings live here and that they are not separated by frequency - making it possible for them to be aware of and interact with each other very easily. A 5th dimensional physical individual is able to communicate with a deceased loved one as if no separation between them exists - which it now doesn't, in point of fact.
Most personal guides, elementals, light as well as dark astral beings, and some ascended masters and angels live at this level of reality, as teaching and healing occurs here. 3rd dimensional individuals who have achieved sufficient growth to access this level while in alpha (meditative) state, do so for this purpose.
5-D is a learning platform and stepping stone into higher-dimensional consciousness
All too often, the 5th dimension is depicted as a "heaven" where everything is perfect and easy. I want to emphasize that this is not necessarily the case.
This is still a level of duality; negative aspects ARE present and the individuals living here, are here to learn and grow. With growth, come challenges. However, due to the lighter karmic influence, lessons experienced here can be as easy (or as difficult) as the individual chooses to impose on themselves. In the 5th dimension, individuals are masters of their own fate - but, being the master of your fate takes time to master!
5-D represents physical life in perfect balance: Individuals have understanding of 1st dimensional consciousness (physical unity) as well as an increased awareness into higher levels (divinity/unity of consciousness).
This means that, in 5th dimensional life, the concepts of unity and divinity are explored as life lessons.
Whereas the 3rd dimension is a learning platform for recognizing oneself as divine (and, of course, for recognizing the mere existence of a "bigger picture" in the first place), the 5th dimension is a platform for learning how to incorporate that knowledge in a real-world, day-to-day capacity, as well as for developing one's relationship with the collective consciousness.
In other words: the 5th dimension teaches you how to live as a divine being, rather than just understanding that you are one.
What does that mean in a practical sense?
It means developing accountability and control over one's reality (manifestation, etc), but also learning the difference between what is to be controlled, and what is to be let go of - what is not yours to control or to take for yourself.
It also means learning to see and experience oneself as part of the collective - self-sacrifice, unconditional love, empathy - taking responsibility for one's own actions and not abusing the power you have been given access to. Developing a personal code of ethics without having anyone to tell you what is right or wrong and one which is not motivated by a system of punishment or reward - and maintaining the strength that it takes to uphold those ethics, every day.
It means learning in a very real sense, what it means to be authentically powerful.
6-D is the first of the divine levels of consciousness,
meaning that duality no longer exists and only positive aspects are present.
The line between individual and group consciousness becomes murkier at these levels and both states of being exist in unison.
Because of the absence of duality, the divine levels can only be accessed by those individuals who have shed all personal karma and self-actualized.
This, like all divine levels, is a level containing pure love - but this is not to be confused with the human emotion, because human emotions do not exist here. The love experienced in the divine levels cannot be articulated into human language and must be experienced firsthand to be understood - it is bigger, purer, all-encompassing and in actuality, not a feeling at all but a state of being.
From this level up, physical form also does not exist and individuals living here have only energetic bodies, which they can alter at will. They may choose physical form if they wish but, in order to do so, they must birth themselves into a physical body at a lower level - i.e. incarnate into a lower-form version of themselves (an avatar).
6-D is the level of sacred geometry
In simple terms, sacred geometry is the energetic template (the blueprint) that forms the basis for the lower levels.
In order for something to exist in the 1st - 5th dimensions, it has to first exist here. But, on this level, the complexities and details of life are stripped down to their most basic, underlying core nature. By this I mean that existence is simplified to the point that it is pure raw consciousness - untainted in its nature and purpose. By stripping away the details which actually prevent it from vibrating at full capacity, this core energy becomes bigger and more complex - it is allowed to be what it is, with no limitations.
Existence, when perceived from the perspective of sacred geometry, is too complex for the human mind to understand fully and the brain translates this complexity into physical size in order to rationalize it - this is why the human mind perceives those individuals who live here as being much larger than, say, a human. In reality, concepts like "size" do not exist outside of physical space, and certainly not here.
Everything at this level exists primarily in its pure geometric form - but understanding and interpretation of this is dependent on the visitor's level of growth.
6-D houses those who have chosen to live in service of the collective
Others, do not live here.
In other words: those individuals who have self-actualized to this degree but have NOT chosen a life of service, live at higher levels than this and have no contact with the physical world at all.
This level houses those individuals commonly referred to as angels, ascended masters, deities, elders and the like. In reality, these titles and descriptions hold little meaning as they are actually all the same thing, and these categorizations exist as a way for the human mind to interpret the purpose of these individuals who have evolved beyond the ego consciousness and devote themselves to others.
Regardless of title/categorization, they all share one common purpose: to work with those in the lower levels and assist them in their growth process until such time that they too, self-actualize.
6-D (along with higher levels) bears little resemblance to the lower levels of duality
Individuals living here are fully actualized, not only within themselves but also as part of the collective (group consciousness). They understand and view themselves as part of a larger whole and everything they do is for the good of the collective. They are free to move through higher levels of consciousness if they choose, but live here in order to maintain contact with those at lower levels, because beyond the 6th dimension, communication as we know it is no longer possible.
The average human mind perceives these beings as appearing "human" - although much larger and far more beautiful. This is because it is easier for the human mind to process and understand a form resembling their own. It is also why there is no consensus on how these individuals actually look - their "appearance" is dependent on what the viewer is ready to see, understand and accept.
In reality, they hold no permanent bodily appearance and mainly exist in pure geometric form. They may also represent themselves in multiple forms and places simultaneously - in other words, they can be many different people, doing different things, in different places, all at the same time.
In fact, many of the different ascended masters, angels, deities, etc. living at this level are really all ONE individual who is merely representing as different aspects of themselves, in order to help the human mind understand their purpose/identity.
6D is a platform for overseeing and communication with the lower levels
As mentioned, this is the highest level at which conventional forms of communication are still possible. However, it is important to understand that this is only practiced here for the benefit of those who are visiting from lower levels, to help them interpret the message, and is not the standard from of communication between those who live here.
All interaction and communication at this (and all divine levels) exists through a blending/merging of consciousness. This includes sex (because, yes, sex does still exist in non-physical levels).
In other words, if two individuals wish to interact in any way, they simply merge their energies in order to do so.
This level of consciousness is mainly used as a bridge between the lower levels and group consciousness.
Lower levels are watched over, guided, and altered through blueprint adjustments, here. New blueprints can also be created at this level.
Information and/or blueprint alterations may be transferred to those who visit here in alpha state - what I call a "download", because the message is rarely understood in waking state but rather, absorbed into the consciousness so that it can be worked through the waking mind in its own time.
In this way, the 6th dimension is also used as a high-level teaching and healing platform.
The second divine level of consciousness
From this level up, form no longer exists and individuals living here express themselves as sound frequencies and the flowing patterns these sound frequencies create. Should an individual living here wish to take on form, they must move down to a lower level in order to do so.
Spirals, being the source pattern that creates the underlying structure to sacred geometry (6-D) as well as sound frequencies (7-D), can also be perceived and created at this level of consciousness.
Communication as we know it is no longer possible from this level up, and only exists as a merging of consciousness. This makes it difficult to articulate the experiences and knowledge gained at these levels, into human language.
7-D represents the creation platform for sound frequencies
This is important because sound frequencies are, in a sense, the building blocks of energy - in other words, they can be used to create energy patterns which may or may not manifest into the physical world, depending on their function.
The 7th dimension is, in essence, the further simplified, foundation stage, for 6-D sacred geometry and for the physical world that exists in the levels below that. Everything that is possible to do in 6-D, is also possible in 7-D - but here, it is done through the use of sound frequencies rather than energetic patterns.
Sound healing is possible at all lower levels of consciousness but it is here that the frequencies originate.
Therefore, it is here that frequencies can be altered and coded to perform specific functions for the purposes of manifestation and targeted healing techniques. Sound frequencies can also be created here, from scratch, for the same purposes, by those who have mastered this skill.
While the individuals living here have no direct contact with the lower levels, those who visit here may use this level of consciousness for the purposes of advanced sound healing techniques and/or to expand and explore advanced manifestation methods.
Information and/or blueprint alterations may also be transferred to those who visit here in alpha state (via sound frequencies, in this case) - what I call a "download", because the message is rarely understood in waking state but rather, absorbed into the consciousness so that it can be worked through the waking mind in its own time.
In this way, the 7th dimension is also used as a high-level teaching and healing platform.
The third divine level of consciousness
From this level up, sound no longer exists and individuals living here express themselves as flowing, shifting and merging color patterns. Should an individual here wish to take on form or sound, they must move down to a lower level in order to do so.
Communication only exists as a merging of consciousness. This makes it difficult to articulate the experiences and knowledge gained at these levels, into human language.
Spirals, being the source pattern that creates the underlying structure to sacred geometry (6-D) as well as sound frequencies (7-D), can also still be perceived and created at this level of consciousness.
The mystic concept of Correspondence is at its most visible in 8-D
"Correspondence" is the idea that the same patterns exist in the universe, over and over again, but are only expressed/projected differently in different forms. (For example, the color green corresponds to the Heart Chakra, which corresponds to the circulatory system in animals, which corresponds to the herb Cilantro (Coriander), which corresponds to the scent of Peppermint. And so on. By "correspond", I mean that all these different things, although appearing unrelated to each other, all carry the same underlying energy pattern and, because of this core-connection, possess the ability to influence each other.)
The concept of Correspondence has been taught in every mystic teaching throughout history and applied in various ways in each one - most notably, in almost all traditional healing methods, throughout the world.
Correspondence also applies to the levels of consciousness.
The same patterns are repeated in every dimension. In other words: every level contains the same thing and only appears different because consciousness is interpreted and/or projected differently at each of these levels.
This pattern of repetition is far more visible in the divine levels, and at its MOST visible here, in the 8th dimension - this is because in 8-D, virtually so much has been stripped away that there is nothing left to obscure it from view.
In this way, the 8th dimension becomes the best platform for developing knowledge and understanding of this topic.
8-D represents the creation platform for color patterns
Everything that is possible to do in 6-D and 7-D, is possible here - but here, it is done through the use of color.
Color exists at all lower levels of consciousness but it is here that the color patterns originate.
Therefore, it is here that they can be altered and manipulated (coded) to perform specific functions for the purposes of manifestation and targeted healing techniques. Color-based energy patterns can also be created here, from scratch, for the same purposes, by those who have mastered this skill.
While the individuals living here have no direct contact with the lower levels, those who visit here may use this level of consciousness for the purposes of advanced color healing techniques and/or to expand and explore advanced manifestation methods.
Information and/or blueprint alterations may also be transferred to those who visit here in alpha state (via color-based energy patterns, in this case) - what I call a "download", because the message is rarely understood in waking state but rather, absorbed into the consciousness so that it can be worked through the waking mind in its own time.
In this way, the 8th dimension is also used as a high-level teaching and healing platform.
The fourth (and final) divine level of consciousness
The 9th dimension can only be described as pure, raw consciousness, which we perceive as crystalline, prismatic white light and which we experience as pure knowledge.
As in all divine levels, communication only exists as a merging of consciousness. This makes it difficult to articulate the experiences and knowledge gained at these levels, into human language. All I can say of this experience is that is deeply profound - because, in 9-D, nothing is hidden from you. Everything makes sense.
This is the highest level of consciousness at which you can still perceive yourself as an individual. That being said, holding onto individual consciousness in 9-D requires a great deal of focus and effort, and can only be achieved for brief periods of time. Rather, you may experience that your consciousness merges in and out of the collective throughout your visit here - almost like a wave flowing in and out of the ocean.
9-D houses the "I AM Presence"
While 6-D is where you find yourself stripped of ego consciousness, here in 9-D you are stripped of all identity markers altogether.
In other words: you may understand that you are YOU, but that's really as far as that that understanding goes - the details of what it means to be you, can only be accessed by moving down to a lower level. The details of your personality, names, labels etc. simply do not exist here.
The idea of losing one's identity is a terrifying notion to most humans, because human consciousness is rooted in the ego-self - causing it to believe that without our identity, we are nothing.
In fact, the opposite is true.
When we experience ourselves stripped of identity markers, we are able understand that there was something so much bigger hidden away underneath it all and that our identity markers actually placed limitations on us. We find ourselves face to face with our authentic self : our "I AM Presence"
What is the I AM Presence? Simply put: it is the soul.
Pure unadulterated power, needing no labels or definitions, undefinable in its limitlesness.
The I AM Presence is everything. Sees everything. Knows everything. Understands everything. It just, IS.
9-D represents the creation platform for energy patterns
This level contains only 2 aspects: white light (raw energy, i.e. consciousness) and dark matter.
The 9th dimension is where raw energy can be altered and manipulated (coded) to perform specific functions for the purposes of manifestation and targeted healing techniques.
New energy can also be created here, from scratch, for the same purposes, by those who have mastered this skill.
Those of you who are into science know that energy cannot truly be created or destroyed but that dark matter can be converted into energy.
This process is what makes it possible for the universe to continue to expand.
So, when I talk about "creating new energy", I am talking about this process: making something out of (what appears to be) nothing at all.
While the individuals living here have no direct contact with the lower levels, those who visit here may use this level of consciousness for the purposes of advanced healing techniques and/or to expand and explore advanced manifestation methods.
Information and/or blueprint alterations may also be transferred to those who visit here in alpha state (via raw consciousness, in this case) - what I call a "download", because the message is rarely understood in waking state but rather, absorbed into the consciousness so that it can be worked through the waking mind in its own time.
In this way, the 9th dimension is also used as a high-level teaching and healing platform.
The level of absolute unity
Perception of oneself as an individual is no longer possible from this level up - only the collective exists. In other words, in 10-D, you have effectively crossed through the boundaries of your own consciousness and have reached the place where everyone else is - only to find that you are there, too, and that everyone is ONE.
The human mind finds it difficult to process such a complete loss of individuality and, as such, it is extremely difficult to access this level in alpha (meditative) state while still housed in a human body. That being said, with enough practice and discipline, it can be done.
For those who have mastered this ability, it is difficult retain any memory of 10-D experiences once back in a normal waking state. In other words, you will remember that you were here, that the experience was beautiful and you may even remember some small details here and there, but the details themselves are like pieces of a puzzle that cannot be put back together into a proper "memory", and are difficult to articulate to others.
Because of the absence of individuality, this level is experienced as a place of absolute peace, offering deep solace and profound inner healing to those who visit. There are no objectives in 10-D other than to just be - which, let's face it, is very relaxing - and returning from a visit here leaves you feeling rested, rejuvenated, and complete.
It's difficult to ascertain exactly how many sub-levels 10-D is actually made up of -
largely because this distinction is not possible to make in the absence of the individual consciousness!
My feeling is that this level is really made up of (at least) 3 separately-identifiable levels, bringing the total number of dimensions to 13.
I list it here as one level - the 10th dimension - for the sake of simplicity, and because while visiting Group Consciousness, I have never been able to sufficiently identify clear-enough distinguishing markers to warrant splitting it up any further.
10-D houses the collective consciousness of ALL life -
this means human, other species, plant, planetary and even extra-terrestrial consciousness.
The belief that other types of life do not fall into the same category as, say, a human, is one built on the mistaken premise of separateness, but let me be clear: separateness is an illusion. We are all one, and it is here in 10-D that we truly understand what this means.
In this level, we understand the extent to which we harm ourselves by harming others - more importantly, we realize how much those others really mean to us. It is a feeling beyond empathy: pure, absolute love for everything and everyone. Really, it's indescribable.
Experiencing this level forever alters your perception of yourself in relation to others.
The level where all existence originates
In my opinion, this is the level commonly understood to be, or referred to as, "God". Certainly, when I access this level of consciousness, there is a definite feeling of being an "observer" and of not being able to fully immerse in the experience. That being said, my view is that, like all levels of consciousness, immersion IS possible here - and that it is only the memory of immersion that is not possible to retain in waking state.
Each level of consciousness feels stronger, more intense, than the level below it, and in 11-D the experience is magnified to the point where it is like raw electricity; akin to a front-row seat to the birth of a star: intense and complex beyond description and impossible to fully understand while housed in a human body. That being said, experiencing this level does not need to be rationalized or understood in order to be able to be appreciated:)
The birth of the universe - as well as the continued expansion of the universe (the birth of new souls) - can be witnessed while visiting this level of consciousness.
On the first visit, it's also common to remember/witness one's own birth - by this I mean the birth of your soul (your I AM presence) and soul-cluster (soulmates, soul family etc).
11-D, while being tremendously intense and very often overwhelming, is also a place that is deeply comforting to visit, and the experience is reminiscent of being a child in the arms of a (very loving) parent - and well worth the work and personal growth required in order to reach it:)
