Many people believe that spirituality and religion are one and the same thing, but I’m here to tell you they’re not. In religion, you always have someone that will dictate how you should live your life, behave and even think. You have the priests and other religious leaders that usually follow guidelines written in a book or scripture and they see them as the absolute truth, something that everyone should adhere to.
Spirituality, on the other hand, has nothing to do with religion, from my own experience.
In spirituality, we understand that we all have our own truth, which is not the absolute truth, and that we live our life completely differently. With religion, you get something that comes from the outside and you put it inside you; with spirituality, it’s the opposite: you develop something inside yourself and it manifests on the outside, in your third-dimension life.
Having said that, there are people that are both religious and spiritual, which is absolutely fine, there are people that only believe in what they can see, so, very materialistic and that is also fine because we all have our own individual journeys to make. On my part, there’s absolutely no judgment whatsoever.
A spiritual awakening can be experienced by just anyone; it is not limited by any social status, creed or where you were born or live. An awakening happens when you realise that there is something more to this third-dimension life. You might be doing what you regularly do and then, at some point, you realise there’s a lot more to this life than going to school to get an education, working long hours and days to be able to sustain yourself and only rest from all that when you reach a certain age. You might feel like there’s something important that is missing, something that gives everything meaning, something that you don’t know what it is, but that could be the answer to a lot of things.
When it comes to ascension, that’s when you start getting the answers to, at least, some of those questions and doubts you have and you start embodying new values and new beliefs, using them in your daily life.
Obviously, this is not always so linear. Sometimes awakening and ascension could be happening at the same time, when some people start having the feeling that there’s something else out there, they start asking pertinent questions and almost immediately start getting answers to those same questions, applying them in their life also immediately.
And it’s not like absolutely everyone will experience exactly the same awakening and ascension; everyone has their own lives, their own experiences, therefore, they will end up having different kinds of awakening and ascension.
In the most basic terms, the 5D consciousness is pretty much like an upgrade.
In the third dimension there’s a lot of separation: rich and poor people, “white” and “non-white” people, good and bad; in the fifth dimension, all there is, is wholeness, unity. Going into 5D consciousness we realise that we’re more than a body, that we can manifest everything that we want, that our mind and our soul have got a massive power.
