Regular readers of the Fairy Tale Dimension blog are used to exploring a dimension that is not ours, but is just as real. Just by entertaining the idea that this dimension could exist we widen our awareness. Today I go one step further and invite you to accompany me into the world of perception and the role our senses play in our changing reality.
You have probably searched in vain for keys or a document. Sometimes it takes a long time to find them or they reappear at unexpected places. In my household this happens a lot.
Here are some examples:
One pair of kitchen scissors has disappeared twice in 6 years: One time for 2 years and one time for half a year only to be rediscovered somewhere strange.
On a holiday a few years back our hairbrush vanished from my backpack. We searched everywhere and concluded that it was lost. We continued the trip and in the evening my daughter found it in the same backpack we had emptied before. This is when I started to think that there was more to these displacements.
I was not amused when my driver´s licence went missing and I applied for a replacement document. A few months later the old one reappeared at an unlikely place.
An octogenarian friend of mine displaced one shoe a few weeks ago and had help searching only to find it at an obvious place days later. This was the first time something like this had happened to her.
I tried to explain that this could happen more often in the future and that it does not mean that she was developing dementia.
She said that she understood my words but did not get the concept. It was too strange for her. I guess you have to experience this more often. How about you? Have you had experiences with things mysteriously disappearing and reappearing? Please share in the comments!
Where does our stuff go?
I don´t know. It definitely is not here in any more. If I search with other people, to get a more objective picture, and cannot find it, it definitely is not part of our reality any more. Perhaps we have finally found an explanation for the heaps of solitary socks in our drawers?
The most efficient way to handle these occurrences is to keep calm, order your stuff back and then forget about it. Frantic searching won´t help. Most things will reappear sooner or later. I believe that this displacing of things will be happening more for everybody.
What is happening?
We are showing ourselves that our reality is not fixed and that we are able to manipulate it in more ways than we think possible. I know that I am not always aware of what I am doing energetically and then these displacements happen more often.
Reality and perception
We are firmly rooted in our reality and that is a good thing. We have basic agreements with each other on what our world looks like. The house we live in and the streets we walk every day stay the same because of these agreements.
Our brain is used to tune out things it deems irrelevant. Thus we thankfully have a permanent filter that makes us more efficient because we can concentrate on the matters at hand.
Sometimes this filter has holes. People who suffer from dementia lose their firm roots in our collective reality and let go of the agreements. This is why they see things that don´t belong here. A friend of my mother-in-law who has Alzheimer´s told me that she does not share the strange things that she sees any more because people think that she is crazy.
For example she suddenly sees a pig running across the street. This pig is very real for her. We don´t see it because it does not belong in our reality. It could be part of an alternative reality or another dimension.
This has interesting consequences: If aliens would land in my backyard right now I would probably not see them because my brain would tune them out!
The Invisible Gorilla
In their book The Invisible Gorilla Christopher Shabris and Daniel Simmons have investigated our perception. You can test how much you tune out automatically on their website.
This helps me to understand why each person in a group of people has a different account of a situation the whole group was in. It shows that perception is always depending on the individual.
Our world is changing
Perhaps you have heard that a shift in consciousness is occurring at the moment. All of us agreed on some level that we want to become more aware. This causes a thinning of the veils between alternative realities and dimensions and it gets easier for us to perceive things that don´t belong here. So when you see something strange that you cannot easily explain, just play with the idea that it could be a spill over from somewhere else. Here are some examples from my life:
Hearing an animal that is not there
My daughter was hearing a purring at night without our two cats being near her room. The other day my husband heard it, too which helped my daughter a lot who was thinking that she might have been hallucinating. They both heard something that is not manifest in this reality. Perhaps she will meet this cat later in her life and recognise its purring.
Elves from the fairy tale dimension
Last year when we visited Iceland one of my daughters managed to lose two earphones on two consecutive days. She swore that she put them safely in her backpack.
Turns out that I am not the only one in my family who has a close connection to elves. My daughter has another focus of consciousness as a princess in one of the elf fairy tale countries. When we were in West-Iceland, the area where I also met my first elves, somebody recognised her. Two elves accompanied her for the rest of the journey. Since these creatures love to play with strings, marbles and shiny stuff they took the two sets of earphones back to the fairy tale dimension. At home a few weeks later we found one pair of them in her room. The other never reappeared.
Ever since this trip elves have inhabited her room, which has mutated into a giant playground for them. Stuff they can play with is lying around everywhere.
We found out that they love dripping water when we discovered a wet spot on her floor. The elves had moved a loose panel on our roof so that water could enter through the ceiling when it rained.
We told them that water would destroy our wooden floor and that we preferred our home unharmed and fixed the panel. So far no more water has been diverted into her room.
We can´t see our live-in elves. Sometimes we hear them rummaging or make out movement in our peripheral vision. Five years ago we probably would not have been able to be aware of any of this. You can read more about elves in Iceland in this blog article.
Animals don´t distinguish between manifest and not manifest energies like we do. If you see your pet reacting to something that you cannot see, this means that there is something:
The other day our cat suddenly hissed at something invisible beside my daughter on the sofa. I switched to my energy detection mode and could make out a little shape beside her, probably one of her elves. The cat probably wanted to protect her.
How to adjust to these interesting times
I have shared here some of my experiences that show that we disappear stuff regularly and that our perception could be changing. Our senses seem to be letting through more information and thus we are able to perceive more than we used to. This can be both unnerving and exciting. My family is pretty open for these occurrences. We stopped to explain them away and laugh about them.
To stay sane when experiencing something unusual we need a firm stand in our reality. We have to be aware and know ourselves as well as possible to stay grounded. Only then we are able to identify safely that something does not belong here without scaring ourselves. Thus we can widen our awareness as we get used to the thinning of the veils between different realities.
A great opportunity to learn this is to make a game out of it. We do this in my facebook group The Fairy Tale Dimension where we share our fairy tale moments and possible bleed-throughs from the fairy tale dimension.
Humour is a very efficient way to cope with these changes. I don´t take myself and my senses too seriously any more.
How our world is changing – without the metaphysical focus of this article – is very well explained in this interview of Charles Eisenstein: a you-tube video about Living the Change.
