We have been told time is only an illusion, and yet it seems to dominate so much of our day to day lives.
Maybe we have even experienced brief glimpses of ‘timelessness’ in our meditations, in times of creative excellence, or in deep moments of love.
However, it can be so easy to get sucked back into the ‘daily grind of life’ that it leaves us wondering, how can we truly be free of time?
How do we move from experiencing ‘timelessness’ as more than just a theory?
In this article, we will explore a few questions and perspectives designed to show you how moving beyond time is not a destination, but rather a ‘point of focus’ or a state of awareness, so you can ‘make the shift’ any moment you choose.
1) What is time? Does time actually exist?
When you think of time, what do you imagine?
For many of us, we might picture a clock face, or a calendar when we think of time.
We measure time as ‘the linear passing of moments.’ Time seems to be a way for us to coordinate with others and agree upon certain unified experiences together.
However, for as much as we seem to experience time, all we ever really experience is our perceptions of ‘the passing of time.’
For example, the past and the future never actually exist in the present moment. All that ever exists is the present moment.
The past has already happened, and therefore you can THINK about the past, but you cannot experience the past, aside from focusing on a memory in your head, which is happening in the present moment.
The future has not happened yet, and therefore you can THINK about what may happen in the future, but you are not actually experiencing the future.
The present is what is happening here and now. It requires no thought to exist, because it IS existing. You are living it as it happens.
You can have thought in the present moment, but the thoughts are designed to be momentary tools.
As human beings, our true mastery is realized when we are focused and engaged with the present moment, not ‘stuck in our heads.’
2) Presence is awareness of the here and now.
When you are fully engaged in the moment, and not in your head thinking about bills, and work, and troubles, and how you’re going to do this or that, you’re said to be present.
While it is very simple to be present, it doesn’t always feel easy. Especially when we’ve developed a habit for being lost in our thoughts.
Why do we get lost in our thoughts? Because on some level, we believe our thoughts can help us control our reality and give us what we want.
We obsess over the past in hopes we won’t make the same mistake again. We think if we think about solutions enough, we’ll be prepared for the future ‘when the time comes.’
We believe that if we think long and hard, we’ll be able to protect ourselves and the ones we love.
However, the irony is that when we are lost in thought, we disengage from our responsiveness to the present moment of life.
When we are worried about what has happened or what might happen, we are not focused on what IS happening.
And from the perspective of our fullest selves, what IS happening is always the most interesting thing, since what IS happening is where we have the power to respond.
3) What about healing the past or predicting the future?
Since all time is a concept and a collection of memories and energetic frequencies that you resonate, it is possible to ‘adjust your experience’ of time.
All traumas, joys, and everything else in between are ‘stored’ as a frequency that you carry (or resonate) in the present moment.
When you want to shift an experience you had in the past, or even ‘create’ a future, it is a matter of being present, going within, and shifting the frequency you are resonating NOW to match the frequency you are choosing.
For example, you can shift your past by connecting with new ways to see your past.
We’re sometimes so invested in our stories of what happened, we sometimes forget that we can choose to see our experiences many different ways.
Some people will call these practices timeline regression therapy, or even past life regression therapy.
4) What about clocks and setting appointments? Without everyone keeping time, how will anything get done?
As we shift into our 5D awareness, synchronicity replaces ‘using our minds to coordinate specific points in time.”
This may be slightly challenging to understand at first, but consider the following:
There is an ‘inner-net’ of awareness and consciousness that is open to all of us here and now.
In fact, we are all connected here and now in the fullest levels. However, in our 3D experience, it was necessary to temporarily dull ourselves to this awareness, so we could have our separate experiences.
Now that we have chosen to embody 5th dimensional conscious awareness, we are now shifting into a new state of reality, which includes interactions such as telepathy, instant awareness and understanding, and operating within heart-resonant synchronicity.
A comparison for this would be like, if you had an ‘inner notification system’ that updated you with possible events, plans, and coordinated experiences available to you moment to moment that you could choose from.
You would simply know where to go, who to connect with moment to moment. And others would be aware of you and your choices as well.
Please understand, heart aligned synchronicity is not something we have to ‘do’ or ‘make happen.’
It’s more of who we truly are when we shift from operating in the ‘separation of the mind’ into the connected space of the awakened heart.
If you are here and reading this, you are already deep in your process of integration and remembering. There’s nothing specific you need to ‘do’ to speed it up, or get started.
You are already connected. Your remembering of this connection is unfolding moment to moment in a way that allows for us all to experience a unified remembering.
It may be quite shocking if we all suddenly ‘remembered’ without a nice gradual progression.
So know that you in your infinite wisdom have placed yourself right where you need to be here and now so that everything unfolds in perfection for you.
However, what you can do is begin to shift from ‘needing to know all the answers now’ to getting to know who you truly are, by rooting within yourself and communing with your heart.
Your heart is the center of your knowing and being.
Many of us see the heart as ‘emotional and wishy washy’, however the awakened heart is a center of universal wisdom and knowing, and contains within itself the connection to your intelligent mind, as well as the ‘intuitive calls’ of your gut.
You may consider it the merging point where balance of all awarenesses are considered so an aligned present moment step can be made and placed into action.
5) What if I don’t want to participate? I like using clocks! Will people read my mind? This all sounds complicated.”
Never fear, there is no ‘invisible hand’ that will force you to be anything that is not true to you. It is ultimately impossible for us to be what we are not. We can pretend for a while, but not forever.
If you like using clocks, you will have clocks for as long as it is joyful to you. They will not leave you before you are ready to leave them.
People will not ‘read your mind’, at least not in the way we might have seen in movies.
We are all becoming aware of our extrasensory nature and remembering our true state of being that exists in the present moment.
Everyone is ultimately connected with everyone else, so if it seems like ascension is happening slowly, it is more of a loving process of allowing us to all sync up.
You might experience feelings of time accelerating and slowing down. This is all part of the syncing.
And if it seems complicated, then I suggest that rather than trying to pick it apart with your mind, go within yourself and ask your aligned heart what feels easy, fun, flowing, exciting and engaging right NOW.
Ultimately, this life isn’t about wallowing over what we feel upset or powerless over. This life is an experience we created for the joy of experiencing it.
The shackles are off, the chains tossed in the wind. We are now remembering our sovereignty and our choice to play with things like time, without needing to be ‘trapped’ by time any longer.
Be willing to embrace any feelings of fear or restriction you might still carry with love and non judgement.
This is your transmutation process that is connecting you with the wholeness that you already are.
Allow yourself to be present here and now.
And remember, no matter what, you are always right where you need to be.
