The journey of Ascension is often perplexing, an endless series of shifts, reversals and abrupt changes of direction. In other blogs I’ve compared it with a stock market graph—gradual gains over an extended period interspersed with calamitous crashes as we experience breakdowns and breakthroughs.

In the midst of this seemingly trackless waste, how does one find a consistent path? When I am jagging this way and that, buffeted by the winds of Ascension, how do I set a steady course? The answer is by seeking balance.

A pendulum

The world of polarity (3D) is a world of extremes. The world of unity (5D) is a world where theses polarities have been neutralised and brought into balance. (If you’re uncertain about this, please read What are 3D and 5D anyway?)

The 3D world that most people currently live in can be characterised as a pendulum swinging from side to side. This manifests in the rise and fall of politicians and political parties, sports teams and stars, in the financial affairs of nations and individuals.

People, parties and ideas surge out of nowhere, gathering a following as they express some form of polarised view. This is it—the next big thing—until an opposite groundswell forms and the next big thing becomes the last big thing. The pendulum begins another swing from one pole to its opposite.

You can see this principle at work in any area of life. Take dieting, for example. How many times have we heard there is a new diet, THE diet to end all diets? And how often has this diet, after a rush of acceptance and endorsement, been discredited or simply fallen by the way?

Stop seeing the fads

To shift from a 3D to a 5D perspective, stop seeing the fads—diets, politicians, whatever—and see the underlying pendulum. It swings back and forth. That’s what pendulums do. People are mesmerised by its movement, the drama and sense of newness that each change of swing brings.

We have all been mesmerised—even paralysed—by the pendulum’s swing. It’s fascinating, compelling, like the eyes of the cobra that freeze its prey. Stop being prey to the drama and the dazzle of 3D.

We have all been mesmerised—even paralysed—by the pendulum’s swing. It’s fascinating, compelling, like the eyes of the cobra that freeze its prey. Stop being prey to the drama and the dazzle of 3D. When you’re caught in the eddies of life, wondering which way to turn, turn towards balance.

Ask yourself: what action, internal or external, can I take right now that will lead me towards balance? It may be a direct action—changing your diet, for example, or ending a toxic relationship. Or it may be an inner decision, like a commitment to change a polarised belief. Your life—and your Ascension journey—is unique. Only you can know what constitutes balance in your life.

Ascension leads you beyond the hurly-burly of polarised existence into the still waters of balance and unity. When you are uncertain how to choose, choose balance. Only then will the pendulum cease its age-old swing.
