The Indwelling – A Shift to Fourth World

In this age of transformation, this guest post is from my dear friend and colleague, Rosie Carey. Published May 20, 2020 in her Healing Perspectives column of the Monadnock Shopper News of Keene, New Hampshire – this piece describes our current shift into Fourth World, according to First Nations wisdom.


The Indwelling 

It has long been thought that our heart chakra is the home of the soul, or the indwelling of spirit in the body. Our consciousness, however, has been dwelling in the world of the ego. we have operated out of our ego, third world, third chakra for as long as history has been recording the acquisitions of man.

Our consciousness and our soul are not the same thing. They are different aspects of our whole being. Our consciousness is that part of our self that navigates the ordinary world and everyday life. It is the you that you most readily know yourself to be. Your soul is the essence of your higher consciousness, your divinity.

What is ordinary life without the essence of our being infused into every moment? Our soul and our consciousness working together to define our reality. And they have done this throughout the worlds in which we have lived. According to Native belief, we are now transitioning from third world into fourth world. That is the age of the ego, third chakra dominance, into the age of the heart, fourth chakra dominance. And with this transition, our soul will move from its home in the heart to its new home in fifth chakra, throat chakra.

Our consciousness will likewise move and enter its new home, that of the heart. As our consciousness dwells in our heart chakra we will learn to live as spiritual beings. Our consciousness will shift from being ego-centered to being globally aware. This trend has already begun. We are becoming less concerned for the individual and more aware of the all. Those attributes by which we knew our soul to be are now expanding into our ordinary consciousness. Our soul has prepared the ground for our consciousness to grow.

Your soul is eternal, but that does not mean it cannot and does not evolve. Each step-up in consciousness is an initiation for your soul. Your soul is on an evolutionary path as well as your consciousness. It evolves as your consciousness matures. And yes, your consciousness must mature for your soul to evolve.

The new home of your soul, your throat chakra vibrates at the color of the etheric body, an azure blue. It is multi-dimensional in nature incorporating the ‘air aspects’ of the physical and the ‘form aspects’ of the spiritual. Your throat is a physical point where your energy leaves your body through sound or breath. It marks the separation of physical and etheric energy. It sits above your heart chakra and below your third eye. The throat chakra is the first of the spiritual chakras. It uses the sweetness of your high heart which is the energy of transformation, and the insight of your third eye to maintain the health of your physical and spiritual bodies. In other words, your throat chakra generates renewal.

In fourth world it becomes easier for us to move between the spiritual and physical as we re-enter the realm of the divine. Our frequencies will become more and more refined. Our soul will express itself through all the attributes of fifth chakra. In third world we have known our soul essence to be compassionate, loving, empathetic, and courageous. In fourth world transformation will be the theme. We will perhaps be able to hear our souls speak. Chanting will more fully awaken communication with our soul. Increasingly, our etheric body and our soul work in harmony to bring perfection to life. Throughout this next age of man there begins a renewal of spirit that infuses our consciousness with the great task of embracing each other as one.

As these different worlds through which we pass, learn, and evolve are tens of thousands of years from one into another, the current shift is significant. We are witnessing events that form the mindset and shape the reality of the next tens of thousands of years. Yes, in this new fourth world we will learn to live as spiritual beings, we will become the divine beings we knew we were in third world. In fifth world yet to come, we will realize as divine beings that we are responsible for this world.
