In 2008 a group of lightworkers led by Drunvalo activated the Unity Grid on the south pacific island of Moorea. It was a simple ceremony, and we haven’t looked back since.
A few months later many of us checked in with each other. What seemed clear was that everyone felt more love in the world, felt it as a palpable force of support. Mission accomplished.
But a funny thing happened, and not really haha funny. Life started to operate, well, differently, and many of us had no idea what we were doing. I remember thinking after we did that activation, that I would retire my lightworking wand and move to the country to quietly ascend and live the simple life. Little did I know this was just the beginning. The ascension path would bloom in full force, unrelenting, and every limiting mental construct that held me safe up to that point was to be demolished. Sound familiar?
I would loosely describe the path of ascension as the unshakable devotion, whether conscious or unconscious, to soul growth, and to the collective mission to raise the vibration of earth into something way better- dare I say “the shift,” dare I say the “fifth dimension.”
YOU ROCK 3D, YOU’RE EXHAUSTED, YOU’RE 5D SHIFTING, WTF
For those who have spent the last years living with the land, in a state of oneness with nature, this whole shift thing may seem like old news. Go back to your garden and inner peace, you don’t need to read this.
But there are many who’s life path, for better or for worse, is intimately intertwined both with civilization and insatiable spiritual growth.
You guys, we are really strong and totally crazy for volunteering for this.
So,“How do you let go and trust into the embrace of spirit while still paying the bills, being responsible to your children, or participating in society? I mean isn’t all that stuff anti-5D?”
We can’t all run out to the middle of nowhere to ascend (though I really tried, and may try again!)
We have literally been asked to completely rewire our brain, our DNA, our bodies. For a number of us, we have gotten to the other side enough to be reaping the joyful rewards. But there are still those that are hovering somewhere in between, understanding intellectually that all is provided, but not knowing how to break out of working too much for too little to maintain what they have created without going into bankruptcy, losing children and marriages, houses, etc.
These are legitimate concerns. You have worked hard for what you have, probably too hard. The way things are set up now, many of you are barely making ends meet, even though you work one or two respectable jobs.
When I had reached exhaustion from my overachieving ways and began my “let go let god” training, my experience was falling on my face and losing everything before coming out the other side into abundant living. You can read about that here.
Now, being on the other side (enough), I am grateful for what I learned. And I am witnessing not just my students, but so many people going through their version of what I went through. For those of us that paved the way, lets just make it a little easier on those who are still hovering and freaking out.
I would like to premise this whole section by saying that in my humble opinion, I don’t see 5D as existing all on its own, that would be very one dimensional. We are multidimensional beings. So, 1- 4D and beyond is still there in some way. 5D living means developing more of ourselves, leaving what doesn’t work behind, and learning how to navigate life with a new set of rules. Here we go.
1. YOU ARE NOT A HIPPIE
If you devoted the last 20-30 years to killin’ it in your career, it is highly unlikely you will take on all the values of a true hippie who doesn’t need many, if any material comforts. Hippies have already developed their right brain manifesting genius, but most have not addressed their left-brain (To read about left and right brain manifesting, click here.) You do not need to abandon your fabulous left-brain, or your monthly shopping sprees (I won’t tell.) But you do need to learn all about manifesting from the heart and right brain. Since you are an overachiever, I bet you will do this splendidly, if you haven’t already begun.
2. PASSING THROUGH 4D: GO TO THE LIGHT!
First you must pass through 4D to get to 5D. In 4D your beliefs will smack you in the face, good and bad. So work your beliefs. You will recognize this space if you have no idea what on earth is going on, if you feel caught in between worlds or if you are clinging on to the old paradigm like a broken piece of wood from your capsized boat.
You may feel like you have lost direction and purpose. Congratulations, you have. Your main job is to just go through this. You will not know anything until you get to 5D, and even then it will be a completely different way of experiencing your life purpose.
The number one survival skill in transitioning is to not focus on your external circumstances and to unabashedly align with your heart and your 5th dimensional divine self every day. Admit you don’t know how to solve your problems with your mind, and let divine intelligence come in and school you. Then you will be guided and shown much more gently what to do, step by step. You will know it’s not about tearing everything down, but gently listening to the love of spirit in your life.
The light at the shore will be blinding, follow that light.
3. FIRE YOURSELF
Do you feel like you have been doing life all alone?
Are you shouldering all the burden?
Do you need to be in charge of everything?
This is old-paradigm-lack-mentality. Fire yourself immediately.
I fired myself. It was the best thing I ever did. Because I realized I was so terribly bored with being in charge, and I wanted more. By firing myself I put Source in charge. This is a good move, because if you have done your work, your new boss is amazing and is all about team work.
Fifth dimensional living is not without structure. There is deep structure, and there is deep flow. It is not a free for all because it takes great surrender and great focus. As you plant intentions, the divine fifth dimensional structure unabashedly assists in holding them with you, so you are not muscling this alone. You are NEVER working alone as you may have felt you have been all this time.
Working as a divinely inspired collective is essential to this new way of living. As soul family naturally links together, projects and dreams begin to create themselves by the collective intention of the group, and each individual showing up with their gift. That collective intention is built over time through loving and respecting one another.
This is where some of the biggest rewiring happens. It’s just so shocking when a community of people spontaneously rises up to help you. Can they actually do a better job than if you were doing it alone, or without you being in charge? The answer is yes, yes they can. You will need to continually let go of your personal agenda as some sort of tried and true saving grace. Learn to work with Source energy, with others and enjoy.
4. MAKE EARNING MONEY FUN
You know how to do it. Now make it the most pleasurable experience of your life.
Earning money seems like a chore to so many. It’s not, it’s the best.
Love + Money = SELF CARE.
Love is the bridge between spirit and matter. Do the math. (READ ABOUT IT HERE.)
If you are not earning enough to feel like you are in abundance, find where you are in lack and love yourself there. If you are in a career that destroys you, but you are earning a lot of money, , find where you are in lack and love yourself there.
In the new world, the right and left-brains are illuminated by the pineal energy, making it easier to bridge duality, and making it much more fun. Sink into your pineal gland and ask that it heal the split between spirit and matter, love and money, let it travel to all your chakras and fill you with divine love. Yes!
Deal with your debt
I hear a lot of people say, with hopeful excitement, “I’m not going to deal with my debts because there isn’t going to be any money in a few months….” I think this is a mistake, and not just because I’ve been hearing it for several years, but because we really don’t know what is going to happen. If you created debt, it’s on you and your feelings of avoidance, lack and low self worth. There’s nothing that irks me more than when someone uses spiritual ideals to avoid developing material integrity…and then asks me for money.
It is essential to heal this part of humanity individually and collectively. This area of lack in our systems wants to be filled with love….and money. I’m a broken record because I really mean it and because I personally like being filled up with love and money.
Why is it so important?
The practical energy of money management, budgeting and planning is the same vibration and skill as planning and managing a permaculture farm.
We need integrity, accountability and responsibility more than ever if we are going to co-create! With money, you plan according to business cycles. With gardens, you plan according to the seasons and the land. So my dear overachievers, I cannot say whether money will make it to the next stage, but once again, your grounded, left-brains skills are very needed.
If you haven’t yet, deal with your debt. Build that first, second and third chakra energy, and let the heart and spiritual energies infuse with it. Take responsibility for your actions and you will build confidence, strength and power. We need everyone to be empowered. Love and forgive yourself (and the system) through the process. Your new heart centered manifesting skills will also come in handy as large chunks of cash and great opportunities magically appear.
5. DO WHAT YOU LOVE
I couldn’t leave this one out, and it never hurts to hear it again, right? But don’t think you have to quit your job, change your entire life or earn your living doing what you love right away or ever. Just do what you love and don’t kill yourself. Make it as easy and pleasurable as possible. No pressure, it doesn’t have to be dramatic.
If you feel ready to quit your job, then do it, if not, don’t do it. Just enjoy life as much as possible, and know that the more you cultivate the ability to enjoy yourself and feel taken care of by life, the more you will be enjoyably taken care of by life.
Here’s the tricky part, I have seen so many decide to quit their livelihood thinking spirit would take care of them with the same income level to which they were accustomed. This would be part of the hazing, or creative process, depending on how you look at it. Living in the new paradigm takes a little practice and skill, the same way you developed yourself in the old paradigm. Make it easy on yourself. Do it in steps if possible, allowing your right-brained manifesting skills to integrate with your left-brain ones. You will get to the promise land no matter what, there’s no shame in having a little cushion!

6. LOVE LOVE LOVE
Commit yourself to love. Love yourself, love others through perceived faults, stop blaming, love yourself out of victim mode, do the love thing full on. Develop a relationship with love and Source so strong you can’t ever get rid of it. It will change everything.
Key Benefit: You will have a lot more friends and soul family will find you.
7. GOD IS ALIVE, MAGIC IS AFOOT
The Magic returns. The magic is based on this deep love between you and Creator. All of life loves you and begins to work with you and through you. Events begin to be set up that are far better than what you had imagined.
The magic begins at that point where you give up trying to figure it out and instead say “I don’t know! Spirit, will you come help me? I love you so much, thank you.” You begin to feel that you are in total partnership with life, that your needs are met in the most pleasant ways, that your projects are divinely guided and supported with love. Your new purpose begins to kick in. You are now in the fifth dimensional Unity Grid and it’s good my friends, very good.
My fellow overachievers, I feel your pain and confusion. On the other side of these riddles is a world where we are able to create and receive harmoniously, without stress, with the people we love the most. It’s better than anything you’ve experienced so far, and it’s worth it, so keep going!
