Even much of science today considers viable the infinite dimensioned reality of the ancient mystics and shaman. Acknowledging the existence of these worlds and, therefore, their inhabitants, we must then consider our relationship with them. Can we, do we, interact with them? Are we carrying on active and long standing relationships across these dimensional divides even though we might not be consciously aware of those relationships?
Perhaps our fives senses are not so much perception tools, but rather tools of filtration. In my novel, Sacred Vow, I followed a speculation that our minds filter out the information that we would otherwise perceive as the “other realities.” These other dimensions exist in the very space that we incorrectly imagine our world alone exists. This is possible without our conscious awareness because each world and its inhabitants vibrate within a specific frequency range. Our mind is generally set like a radio tuner to pick up only a specific frequency…therefore recognizing one world/reality only, despite all the other ‘signals’ that are available out there.
The most adept mystics and shaman have always known about these parallel universes/realities because their finely attuned sensitivities allowed them to perceive and understand the details of the nature of their world, their primary reality. Once knowing this, they were able to perceive and acknowledge what was not their world…much like base self-awareness allows me to realize (imagine) what is me and what is not (illusion though that may be). Once these adepts knew someplace existed besides their primary reality, the interest of travel between the different worlds would naturally arise.
The interaction/travel between dimensions is possible, but has most often been limited to those unique individuals who have learned to expand their perception, alter their vibrational resonance. One of the primary characters in Sacred Vow, Ian, manages, unconsciously, to alter his resonance, but can never fully make the transfer into other worlds (never able to fully interact as a full member of that reality). This, however, is the nature of Ian, but does not imply that that there is an inherent limit to travel across dimensions.
In Sacred Vow, Ian and Katerina are soul mates—twin flames—but are completely unaware of each other as the story begins, as they live in different dimensions. They have an active, long standing relationship between them, though is has never manifested in either of their primary realities. In Sacred Vow, much as in our own world today, there is a growing rift in the Collective Consciousness causing a breakdown in the essence of reality.
According to Katerina’s culture, this rift has occurred periodically over the millennia. When it happens, Katerina’s spiritual order, the Sisterhood of Crones, performs a ritual to receive identification of the two individuals who have the strongest bond throughout the infinite realities. This time it is Katerina and Ian. The Sisterhood knows that in order to heal the rift in the Collective Consciousness, these two will have to overcome the obstacles that separate them, come together, and realize their union, their oneness.
The idea that Ian and Katerina getting together affects our collective reality is more than just “love conquers all.” Emotion is energy, and is one of our most powerful methods for generating psychic energy. This being so, a strong motivator such as love is often a catalyst for opening portals to change…whether social, personal, or energetic change.
Cause and effect are not linear. Change, or an unfolding horizon, seeks out the most receptive individuals in which to manifest its own beginning. The increasing opening in the ‘portal’ between dimensions—the expansion of our sense of reality—existed before Ian and Katerina. Their connection was the most receptive point for the connection between dimensions to manifest itself. The developing portal sought out the couple’s receptivity with the intention of expanding into the wider consciousness, beyond masters and adepts…first to Ian and Katerina, then those around Ian and Katerina, then people who know those people, until a momentum is developed so that even people without contact to any of the original players will know this unveiled truth.
Have you ever heard the 100th monkey story? This story was further popularized by Ken Keyes Jr with the publication of his book The Hundredth Monkey. Whether the story is empirical truth or not, the truth of what it is saying has been seen over and over…tipping point they now call it.
The 100th Monkey
A story about social change.
by Ken Keyes, Jr.
The Japanese monkey, Macaca fuscata, had been observed in the wild for a period of over 30years. In 1952, on the island of Koshima, scientists were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropped in the sand. The monkey liked the taste of the raw sweet potatoes, but they found the dirt unpleasant. An 18-month-old female named Imo found she could solve the problem by washing the potatoes in a nearby stream. She taught this trick to her mother. Her playmates also learned this new way and they taught their mothers too.
This cultural innovation was gradually picked up by various monkeys before the eyes of the scientists. Between 1952 and 1958 all the young monkeys learned to wash the sandy sweet potatoes to make them more palatable. Only the adults who imitated their children learned this social improvement. Other adults kept eating the dirty sweet potatoes.
Then something startling took place. In the autumn of 1958, a certain number of Koshima monkeys were washing sweet potatoes -- the exact number is not known. Let us suppose that when the sun rose one morning there were 99 monkeys on Koshima Island who had learned to wash their sweet potatoes. Let's further suppose that later that morning, the hundredth monkey learned to wash potatoes.
THEN IT HAPPENED! By that evening almost everyone in the tribe was washing sweet potatoes before eating them. The added energy of this hundredth monkey somehow created an ideological breakthrough!
But notice: A most surprising thing observed by these scientists was that the habit of washing sweet potatoes then jumped over the sea...Colonies of monkeys on other islands and the mainland troop of monkeys at Takasakiyama began washing their sweet potatoes. Thus, when a certain critical number achieves an awareness, this new awareness may be communicated from mind to mind.
Although the exact number may vary, this Hundredth Monkey Phenomenon means that when only a limited number of people know of a new way—a new horizon,—it may remain the conscious property of these people.
But there is a point at which if only one more person tunes-in to a new awareness, a field is strengthened so that this awareness is picked up by almost everyone!

A complete belief system must hold within it its antithesis.
This is my truth. Only you can determine if there is any value in it for you.
C.G. Walters primarily writes fiction that focuses on the multidimensionality of our loves and our lives. His current novel, Sacred Vow is a metaphysical novel about a man who responds to the mysterious call of [his soulmate], opening the way to redefinition of both himself and his understanding of the world around him…Highly recommended. —Midwest Book Review.
