Living 5D Consciousness Now...5 Typical Experiences


Ever more people are aligning with the Shift into the 5D. I'm hearing from new people daily, from the far flung corners of the world. It's tremendously exciting! One of the key questions that comes up is, "What will it be like living in the 5D?" My answer is you don't have to wait! Nor do you have to hope for some far off distant dream. You don't make one giant leap into 5D Consciousness, you progressively shift, living the experiences here and now, so that you begin to build a 5D landscape all around you, now, in this moment, in this world. We do it in our relationships, our careers and general living circumstances. As the old consciousness steadily falls away, it becomes your new reality...

Living in Two Worlds

I'm constantly feeling these days like I'm living in two world's not one. I can feel the 5D paradigm all around me, in every movement, every thought, every breath, every synchronicity that creates the things I need. It's literally breath-taking to be an integral part of a higher consciousness flow that is speaking to you through every movement. I can feel the sanctity and rejuvenation of life there. I can see the deeper interplay that brings everything together as one. This is pure heaven!

    But like you, I'm still engaging in the 3D and the lower karmic consciousness. I still witness the challenges of family and those who are still working through the lower vibration. I encounter the fear, the worries and control of others, often still desperately clinging to the last straws of the old dying reality. It's sobering and it's humbling.

And the risk is, the old karmic consciousness can still pull you in. And that's fine, it's necessary, until you've personally processed all your own karma. Because you can't fully ascend finally into the 5D without processing it.

So let the karma pull you in, let the 4D tightness activate, but then immediately turn into it, turn to face it - don't wait or procrastinate - work right into it immediately and then process it quickly out.

5 Classic Symptoms you're living 5D Consciousness

Remember, it's also a balance. Process your karma, but then as soon as you can, re-attune to the lighter vibrations of the higher paradigm. Don't let yourself be sucked back into the old consciousness. Let the limiting neural pathways of the old behviourisms dissolve by giving them no more energy.

It may help you for me to outline what many people experience when they're in 5D consciousness - it can help in your 5D empowerment living day to day. I am fortunate and blessed to be traveling around the world meeting and working with ascending people. And although everyone is unique, walking their own path through life, they'll often describe 5D experiences in similar ways.

Here then are 5 classic experiences - 'symptoms' - that people tend to have...

  1. Living with Synchronicity: People are witnessing synchronicity as a way of living and being. The old reality is based on a system of logic based rules that are severely limiting and contracting - they control your consciousness, it feels like living in a box. But as you tune into synchronicity, it guides you on a different path - one that expands you, opens you up and tunes you into the wider interconnectivity of life. You feel loved, cherished and supported by a heavenly choir that's singing to you through numerology, signs and symbology, heart felt feelings of belonging.
    Here's a short video on how to understand what synchronicity is telling you.
  2. The expansive peace of non-attachment: You've realised that attachment to things, people and places is severely contracting and limiting - they compress you back down into the 3D box. However, to truly ascend into 5D, and stay there, is not simply to ditch your attachments like dropping the proverbial hot coals. Otherwise you simply form a subconscious identity with the heat. You have to feel into the heat of the moment, and become as one with it, so it no longer defines you. Then you find yourself naturally expanding through and out.
    Here's a video on expanding through subconscious attachments.
  3. Miraculous manifestation: When you're living in the 5D, the resources you need will effortlessly manifest for you. But there's a big caveat - 5D consciousness is definitely NOT about intentionally manifesting. The purpose of the 5D paradigm is self realisation, growth of the soul, and spiritual enrichment, as a way of life. As you self realise through any given situation, and then self actualise, your infusing beingness of the soul draws to you exactly the resources you need by the Universal Law of Attraction (Bear in mind this Law has been much distorted here in the lower realm... Here's a perspective on allowing resources to naturally come to you).
  4. Living with higher guides: there is currently a vast army of higher guides in the surrounding realms come here to support and assist in the 5D Shift. They've come from different constellations such as the Pleiadies, Andromeda and Arcturus (to name but a few). Many of you will have originated from these star families. It's right and fitting that each of you should have your own team of integral support to assist you on your journey. But true benevolence will only work with you if you open your heart and invite them in. And they won't always give you the immediate answer to any given situation. Instead, they'll amplify signs and synchronicity, asking you intuitive questions, 'spiking your consciousness' to what needs to be integrated so you can figure out your own best alignment. Remember, this is all about your self-realisation and sovereignty as a soul. They're there for you, always, but they're not here to spoon feed! Check this out: Connecting with Your Guardian Angel
  5. Feeling like a misfit, a maverick, a pathfinder and wayshower: Just about everyone I come across who is on a 5D ascending path has felt like a maverick and a misfit at one time or another. You've often struggled with the rules and regulations - the limitations - of the old reality. It's often been painful feeling misunderstood, unloved, and even unworthy, as your divine gifts don't seem to have value in this old 3D world. But now, as the old reality is steadily fragmenting and breaking apart, your life and the choices you make are increasingly making sense. You're embodying light through the challenges and increasingly people are drawn to you. They may not fully understand you, but they can see the light in your eyes and the warmth in your heart. You're finding yourself becoming the pathfinder and wayshower. Without any original intention to do so, you're naturally becoming a facilitator for the new realm.

A Great Cosmic Family

If you're starting to experience any of these five symptoms on a regular basis, then you're beginning to live the higher 5D paradigm here and now. And it doesn't matter a jot if you're not experiencing them all the time. That's okay. Have patience. But also be persistent. Whatever you've been doing to get you to this point has been right on! Keep going, keep exploring, keep digging, keep inquiring. Don't believe something or take on an aspect of truth just because someone tells you so - no matter how enlightened they appear to be. Keep finding your own way, attune and develop your own compass.

However, do take reflections from others where they resonates in your heart. We did come here as part of a wider cosmic family, and although we're dissipated to the far flung corners of the world, as our consciousness unfolds and expands, we're progressively reuniting with that family in the ether. Thus the new 5D paradigm increases in vibrationary strength so that more and more can feel it.

These are exciting times. They're vibrant ones. The reason you came here is coming into sight now. Where previously there was confusion and separation, now there is greater clarity and unity of purpose. Our time has come. The 5D Shift is in full swing!

Finding this so important...lots of stuff swirling around me within family environment and though I am here and present I am really working with not giving energy to the disputes, arguments etc but feeling what it does to me, unraveling that, being attentive but not only to the 3D that's unfolding but how I truly feel to be in it...for the most part it's to not engage with it 95% of the time because it only draws me in to the cyclone...but if I can be there, feel the energy, unravel, it unwinds in the environment much faster and doesn't suck me into it completely. If that makes any sense! Smile

Thanks Open!!!

Thanks for sharing Jen - I know how tough it can be in families especially, where others don't necessarily appreciate how you're being and your deeper purpose of service. It's not easy!

But of course there's always massive growth potential in it. And also, as we've talked about many times, it's essential to create one's own space, with one's own vibe - connecting with your own team. It helps enormously.

Open <3

Yes indeed! Having my own space helps a ton and I value that immensely! Often I am in my own space and that gives me a sense of tranquility and centeredness even if the rest of the house is rattling. Feeling a connection to my own vibe is what is carrying me right now ... Particularly through the waves of depression and destruction I am feeling. Thanks Open!

Absolutely love this! Resonating deeply.

Another 5D Shift consciousness experience for me is experiencing the interconnectivity of all things. It's intangible (and difficult to put in to words), yet paradoxically touches every fibre of my being. It's a connectedness to the life force that flow through all things - which is already of the higher density. The energy that will remain as the 3D falls away from our experience.

Absolutely love this too! It's creating a deep beautiful sigh within me whilst simulantously a feeling of being lifted higher. I feel blessed to now know and experience my own vibe, my home. When I drift from it I'm finding it much easier to reconnect and get back into me. Sending much love to you Jen.

Beautiful Amy...thank you. I have this image of myself like a cat being pulled through an opening while it still has it's claws in the ground facing the other way....resistance is futile lol! We all have those places I suppose...there is lightness in it all too...just some tough stuff. So so happy that you can feel that sense of your vibe, your home...my heart swells. <3

Love what you shared Trinity...it's right there all the time.

Thank you for this stellar article, Open. So crystal clear. Much appreciated. Gives me a much welcomed boost! The classic ascension 'symptoms' you describe and the links provided in your article reassure me that I am, indeed, on the 'pathless' path to 5D, as I continue to breakthrough the densities and express gifts of beingness and right action. Although sometimes the densities I encounter along the way feel like boulders on a railway track! And sometimes I feel like I'm stagnating, not moving forwards. Like a nowhere 'Mame' in a nowhere land. At those times, I know I'm being invited to go deeper into the feelings, to become the One in whatever I'm feeling and experiencing.

My daughter and I recently attended a native psychic fair. I was immediately drawn to do a reading with a serene, young man in his 20's. I sensed he was a wise, old soul as I walked around checking out the energy in the room. He and I immediately connected like old friends, and we had the loveliest chat about ascending to 5D! I thought, "Wow! The momentum is building!"

I felt to share how I experience an aspect of the inter-connectivity of all life. I've had throughout my life and continue to have absolutely ecstatic moments when my heart simply overflows with gratitude for the divine uniqueness of each of us, how we each shine in our own special ways, giving what no-one else can give, each and everyone one of us an equal and essential part of the whole, united in our diversity. It's easy to forget how precious and needed each of us is in a world that does its best to beat us down and make us feel small, like we don't matter. I have felt this way at times. Knowing how that feels, I love to remind others that their sparkly specialness is essential to the whole magnificence of All That Is. Frank Capra's film "It's a Wonderful Life" illustrates this so beautifully when the angel, Clarence, reminds George Bailey during the dark night of the soul just how important and loved he is. Openhand does such a splendid job at that!

"We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color."
~Maya Angelou

So yah for each of us! Smile

Hi Open!

I cannot thank you and the universe enough ever. Trillions of thank though! I was feeling stuck on my spiritual path and was asking universe to show me the path further. How do I progress, what lies ahead. I was not sure how to make out the feeling of being misfit in this world, in my surrounding.

Your post popped up at the right time. You have shown me way many times earlier too. I am working on my root chakra and sacral chakra and reaping the benefits too:) Loads of lost pains are resurfacing. But the moment they started flooding my consciousness, I understood that it is time to heal and let go. I am releasing the karmic pain layer by layer since then.

I was trying to make sense of the things I was going thru' - I am not feeling overly attached to anything or anybody. I am feeling out of place often. And yes, I am finding resources to aid my physical and spiritual progress just like that! Now I can relate after going thru your post.

You have been the north star in my spiritual journey. Thank you so much.

Thanks everyone for your kind words of support - yes I know how much it can help to know typical experiences of 5D Consciousness - to get some feedback that it's really happening. Smile

Janhavi - I'm with you - the universe is with you! Just keep digging into and through those lower densities. I know how it can so often feel counterproductive... "Why am I doing this? Why does it feel so dense when I should be expanded and light? The answer is to reclaim those lost 'nuggets of soul gold' buried in the sediment of life. We integrate more, we become more whole and sovereign. We become empowered, present, here and now. Irrepressible, undeniable. And our kundalini connects through all the densities. Then together, we really can move mountains!
