“Therefore whosoever hearest these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock: And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.” (Mathew 7:24-27)
Tidal waves and floods are common features in dreams. They often cause concern among people on the path, since it is easy to refer them to imminent catastrophic events.
Psychologically and esoterically water stands for the emotional realm. On a personal level floods and tsunamis may suggest a time of emotional upheaval, overwhelming feelings and radical cleansing. They may also indicate a rite of passage, initiation or multidimensional baptism or rebirth.
Everything is swept away and released so as to give space to a new course of life. Water is associated with the fourth dimension and the emotional body. From a limited third dimensional perception it is seen as water, yet from a multidimensional perspective water manifests as the fluidity of free time circulation, i.e. the fourth dimension of time.
Tidal waters and flood confront us with the denial of time space, which in the third dimension is perceived as linear. From a third dimensional perspective a flood is a disaster, while from a multidimensional perception it is part of the web of life. While there can be places where floods occur, there are also other places in time where it is dry.
The ego separated reality is imprisoned in a blocked sphere of time, based on constant denial of whatever exists beyond such configuration, which causes terror and fear. There is no way out of this terror, unless one moves further.
Fear of death is inevitable for whoever identifies solely with third dimensional reality. And this is also an inevitable fear since death of the physical body is inevitable. Yet fear of death or pain, once it is thoroughly explored, may also be the gateway into the fourth dimension and the understanding of our authentic nature.
The Wave is a warning that transformation is what each one here in this physical world is meant to face sooner or later. This warning is not new, since it has been received from the beginning of separation, with people continuing to die and suffer ever since. I
It is just the separate human mind that stubbornly refuses to accept this. Its separation from the sense of reality is such that it continues to regard death has a terrible event, an out of bound zone, to disregard, deny or forget about as much as possible. And it is this denial that continues to create massive shocks and pain, whenever death or simply the fear of death inevitably arrives.
With death the ego dream comes to its end, although it may be recycled again with the dream of reincarnation, which is the ego dejected version of immortal life. Dreams cannot continue forever and a general awakening is only a matter of time. Yet we can decide to wake up earlier if we wish to avoid further terror and pain.
“Tolerance for pain may be high, but it is not without limit. Eventually everyone begins to recognize, however dimly, that there must be a better way. As this recognition becomes more firmly established, it becomes a turning point. This ultimately reawakens spiritual vision, simultaneously weakening the investment in physical sight. The alternating investment in the two levels of perception is usually experienced as conflict, which can become very acute. But the outcome is as certain as God.” (ACIM, T22)
When the Wave comes, remember not to become emotional with fears, terror and concern. The Wave is a riding horse of freedom. We can master the Wave if we connect with the fifth dimension, which is the mental realm and air. The emotional and watery Wave of fear dissolves by connecting with the multidimensional mind.
The ego mind is based on separation and denial, and if we use that mind, when the emotional Wave comes, the inevitable result is terror and fear.
According to our human separated perception a physical wave may come or not, while at a multidimensional level of awareness waves come all the time. Hence it does not really make much difference. Healing, as I see it, involves bringing awareness to what is not seen and denied. Death, again happens all the time, yet it keeps being hidden, repressed or denied. The same applies to sex, which is the source of life. Hence there is no way into any higher or unseen realm, if I am not ready to acknowledge what is happening all the time in the visible world, if I refuse to face the practical source of my fears and denials in everyday life.
In certain times in history death becomes visible for everybody, especially when there are huge catastrophes, wars or natural disasters, like some of the recent events in 2011. Yet the greatest disasters in human history pale in comparison to natural death.
Natural death takes an average of 52 million lives every year. While you were reading this article, 144 people just died on this planet. Hence the wave is an ongoing development, it is just that we keep lliving in a world of dreams where we see it only when we wake up.
Forgiveness is letting go of our blocks to sight, out of the realisation that they do not serve us anymore. The Wave confronts us with the choice between misperception and salvation, pain and happiness, dream and reality.
