Humans are born with two eyes to see and one eye to know.
3rd dimension (3D) senses are the senses we have for human survival: sight, sound, touch, taste, smell. The 5th dimension (5D) sense we have is knowing.
Since we live in the 3D reality, or matrix, it’s easy to experience the 3D senses because as mortal humans, we need them to survive. Our ancestors had to develop a way to prevent being attacked by sabre-toothed tigers and other predators, so they used their (3D) senses to develop a defense mechanism called fight or flight. This powerful but short stress response hormone release in their brain would cause them to be on guard when needed so they wouldn’t lose in the game of “survival of the fittest”. And voila, here we are with that same defense mechanism. Unfortunately, in modern times, this fight or flight mechanism is used incorrectly.
When we over use our 3D senses, we create all sorts of illusions. This is called prolonged stress. Too much of the stress response hormone called cortisol is released and over time it causes problems not only within our mind but our body, as they are connected.
The whole point of our 3D senses is to use it properly like our ancestors did. They didn’t worry about what others thought of them or who liked their Instagram posts. All they cared about was living life and trying to survive. So because they used their 3D senses correctly, they survived. And because they survived, here we are.
So what allowed our ancestors to generate the idea of using their senses to develop the fight or flight mechanism? Their 5D sense of knowing. And this came because they didn’t have distractions such as social media to create illusions and block them from creating this very vital survival tactic.
Our 5th dimension (5D) sense of knowing is our intuition/gut feeling in regards to our own life force. Many believe there’s a difference between intuition, gut feeling, third eye, etc. But really, it’s all unified to keep things simple. There’s no need to separate our single sense of knowing into classifications like the DSM-5.
When we allow our 3D senses to stray away from the simplicity of knowing, we become the DSM-5 and block our one powerful sense of internal guidance.
This is why meditation is so important. It’s the number one way to shut down all the crazy illusions we create with our 3D senses so we can not only connect with who we really are, but acknowledge and understand our connections to everyone and everything we come into contact with. It’s the higher consciousness that strips away all the sugar coated bullshit (like telling kids Santa and the Easter bunny don’t exist) and makes us realize what’s really going on and ultimately banishes fear.
When you are living life primarily based on your 3D senses, you live in a world full of fear. This includes creating illusions of what others negatively think about you (which is usually wrong), worrying too much about matters out of your control (which is pretty much everything), unnecessary competitions with other people, paying too much attention to time and negative aspects of positive situations and pretty much anything that aligns with “doom” and “limited possiblities”.
When you are living life primarily based on your 5D sense, you live in a world full of love. This includes understanding you are connected with everyone and everything, death is really just a change in energy, time doesn’t exist as we are continuously evolving in energy, positive aspects are apparent in any given situation, and pretty much anything that aligns with “evolve” and “infinite possibilities”.
So basically, as humans, we only need our 3D senses to survive but need our 5D sense to live. How do you want to spend your life? Living in fear or living in love?
