Part 2 of a Message
Received Through Mercedes Kirkel on February 17, 2013
Question: For those who came here from the fourth dimension and chose to not be fully involved in the third dimension, is it time to intertwine with the third and fourth, or somehow lead and show the fourth dimension, like this is where we’re going, knowing that the third dimension is just about done?
Yeshua: Any being who is here in the third dimension has chosen to be here. Individual beings often do not remember that choice, because that is part of coming into the third dimension. You forget that process of choosing to be in the third dimension. At the higher dimensions you do not forget. You remember. Part of what makes the third dimension potentially confusing and difficult is that forgetting process.
One aspect of awakening to the fourth dimension is starting to remember why you chose to come here and to be sure that you have completed that work. There is the fundamental work of having the experiences you chose to have by being here. In that process, most of you have been here for many lifetimes. Over those lifetimes you have opened up to certain experiences that may not be complete. So you may also have completion work to do relative to your experiences during your lifetimes here in the third dimension.
These are two somewhat different things, although they are very related. One is at the soul-level, involving certain experiences and learning you have chosen at the soul-level to have. You then engaged experiences in the third dimension to have that learning and those experiences. That has opened you up to what sometimes is referred to as “karma.” This means that you may have practical completions relative to the experiences that you have had. So the transition to the fourth dimension can involve both practical completions relative to your third-dimensional experiences and soul-level completions, fulfilling the learning and experiences that your soul wanted to have in coming here.
You, as a soul, are not separated from the larger process. Part of what makes the third dimension different is that you have the idea that you are separated and your soul-path is different from other people’s soul-path, other beings’ soul-path. But that is not really the case. You might look at it as you being a scout for the greater being. Any learning, any experiences that you have, you take back to the whole, to the All That Is. So this is not just for yourself. You engage in this process for all beings.
There is also another aspect, where beings have chosen to come into this earth plane of the third dimension and this place as helpers, to support and assist in this process of ascension. That is also a form of life-purpose. Many beings may have both—they have come to gain learning and experience, and also to offer service and support.
Regardless, the process is the same at this point for all beings—to complete whatever you need to complete at the third dimension and to make the shift into the fourth dimension. This shift can be made even while you still exist in the third dimension. It just requires you to apply yourself to that, and that is what the spiritual process is about.
You will know if you have anything left to complete because it will manifest in your life. It generally manifests as challenges, difficulties, problems—in relationships with people, your circumstances such as work, supporting yourself, in relationship to your body, your physicality, your health, your home situation. Whatever it is, those things are manifesting and they inform you that those are areas in which you are not yet complete. So, for most of you, it should be clear from that what your work is.
Beyond that, your work is to be love and light, love and consciousness. Of course, that will feel the best to you and will be the greatest service that you offer. As you are practicing being love and consciousness, you will notice the places where you are not love and consciousness. And again, that will reflect to you where you have growth to do within yourself, because whatever you are manifesting is a reflection of you.
Question: I have a question in regard to relationships. How do you figure out or realize if a relationship is an unhealthy one that’s not serving you, and you need to let go of it and move on—or if it’s something that you need to work with because in working with it you will grow and learn your lessons, and it’s actually healthy and serving you?
Yeshua: The second is always true. Whatever is coming up in a relationship is always something you need to grow and work with, or it wouldn’t be coming up. It’s your choice how you choose to grow and work with that. You can do it in relationship. You can do it out of relationship. A lot of times, working with the issue in relationship helps you, because when you do the work out of relationship, you oftentimes assume that you’re doing very well and everything is fine. Then you get in relationship and you find out otherwise. Many people then make the mistake of blaming the other person, because you were fine when you were by yourself. (laughter) But the reality is that you were simply avoiding that arena. Being in relationship helps you to see your patterns. This is one of the benefits of relationship. It helps you to see yourself, as long as you don’t make the mistake of assuming it’s the other person.
That’s not to say that the other person isn’t doing very real things, doesn’t have their own work. It’s just that that really has nothing to do with your work. And if you focus on that, you will tend not to do your own work. You will also tend to have a lot of difficulty in your relationship, which will oftentimes manifest as conflict, arguing. You will be having arguments about whose work it is to do what, to make the change that you want to have. (laughter)
Ultimately it is always your own work. When you have done that work, you will be manifesting a different situation. Not to say that you will be manifesting a different relationship. You may be, or you may be manifesting the same relationship with a very different pattern happening in that relationship.
So whatever is coming up is always a sign of your own work to do. It is always a gift, ultimately, and an opportunity. But that is not to say that, therefore, you should always stay in the same circumstance that you are in. It is simply that you should always do your own work. When you do that work, you will generally be guided as to the outer steps that come out of that work. That will clarify for you whether to remain in that relationship, make changes in the relationship, or make changes that include not remaining in that relationship. You will be clarified. You will also take the actions from a place that’s increasingly gentle, compassionate, peaceful, because you will more and more be creating those qualities within yourself and emanating that out into your relationships.
If you are not having the clarity, it is a sign that you have not done the inner work. When you do the inner work, you will come to clarity.
There is one measure you can always use, which is that a relationship should be supporting you on your spiritual path. There is no other reason for having a relationship. The measure you can use is that your joy, your love, your consciousness is supported, is increased through the relationship. If that is not happening, that is a sign that the relationship is not supporting you in doing your inner work and your inner growth. So you can use that as a help. But it is not to say that the relationship is bad, or the partner is bad. It’s all about you, meaning each individual. It is simply about what supports you in doing your own work and staying responsible for that.
Some people choose to stay in situations, which other people look at and say, “That’s a bad situation.” What they usually mean is that it’s not supporting the person. But others can’t really know from the outside. They don’t know the full spectrum of your spiritual path, your spiritual choices. Only you know that. Similarly, each individual knows what is supporting their spiritual path.
There is a great deal of confusion that occurs in relationships when people are not strong spiritually and get in relationships. Sometimes it can work out, where there is harmony and where the individuals’ spirituality is ultimately supported. But oftentimes it is a problematic situation because people end up demanding from their partner what they should be getting from their own spirituality. And of course their partner, in that circumstance, will never be able to fulfill that. When you are connected spiritually, connected to God, you will generally see your partner as a manifestation of God and the Divine, just as you will see all of life as a manifestation of God and the Divine. But when you are disconnected, you will not tend to see that and oftentimes will fall into the trap of demanding that from your partner, wanting your partner to fill the hole that you feel within yourself. This is a great deal of the difficulty that occurs in human relationships.
Human relationships at the third dimension are not easy. In general, there are difficulties because the third-dimensional consciousness is so much about power-over, competition, not enough for everyone. In your relationships, you are doing deep spiritual work to overcome this with another being. It can be a very empowered path for doing so, if you see it as such. Again, that does not mean that all relationships are your spiritual path or that you should always embrace any particular relationship as a spiritual path. It is not saying any kind of fixed rule like that. It is simply saying that relationships altogether are a powerful form that support you in your spiritual growth, if you understand them as such.
Question: I’m thinking about how Christianity perhaps has a misperception or a different perspective than you would want the world at large to know about you and your message—how they worship you and put you on a really high pedestal that they can’t reach. Are there any messages for us to hear and convey to other people who may be trapped in this misperception of you, to help open their eyes to a new way of seeing and having a different relationship with you.
Yeshua: In general that path will not be productive—the path of trying to show people another way who are drawn to certain religious structures and belief systems about me.
Those people have their learning and it is different from yours. Those people have manifested a tremendous system of authoritarianism and doctrine, not necessarily based in reality or even truth. And they have their own learning that they are getting from that. You must not look at them as victims, any more than you must look at yourself as a victim. They do not need to be saved any more than you need to be saved. What will help them is the same thing that helps you, which is truth.
But the thing that helps most people, especially at this time, is truth that is felt, truth that is lived. As you live your truth, you can share that as your experience, your truth to people who are open, who are interested, who invite that. But the path of trying to convert people is usually based in some lack of understanding of those peoples’ own process. When they have completed their learning that they need, they will be hungry for something to help them that is new, and will come to those such as yourself because they are seeking, they are looking, they are asking. You do not need to take a directive role in that process.
When you encounter people who seem to be misguided (from your point of view), it would be valuable to ask yourself why you have manifested this in your life. Rather than focusing outward on what you need to do to change that person, consider what you need to do to change yourself. That is where you will be most effective.
Is there a part of you that is still looking for authorities to save you, looking for stories to relieve you, open to not seeing realities or truths that are in front of you? Perhaps you are manifesting that in your outer world as other people who seem to be engaging that.
When you are in the fourth dimension, you won’t have this sense that you have to change the outer world. You will simply change yourself and your outer world will change. So to focus on changing the outer world is to commit to stay in the third dimension. That is a third-dimensional process. It is much better to change yourself and create a different world.
And, while you are in the third dimension, there will be actions, there will be steps that you need to take. It is not that you should never act in the third dimension, or only go into the inner and wait until you are in the fourth dimension. If you are in third dimension then there is a balance, an active role that is called for. This is similar to what I was referring to when I said “give to Cesar what is Cesar’s.” Give to the third dimension what is the third dimension’s. But do not be called to that as your life work. Your life work is to grow in love and light. And that will manifest around you as the obvious sign that that is occurring.
Is that clear?
Question: Yes. Thank you. I love you so much.
Yeshua: And I love you.
Now we will close this session. I thank you so much for sharing your heart space with me. I love you all so much. With great blessings, I leave this circumstance, but never your heart.

Part 1 of a Message
Received Through Mercedes Kirkel on February 17, 2013
Greetings beloveds. This is Yeshua and I am so deeply happy to be with you. I acknowledge Lord Melchizedek and Sananda, who are both present with us today and who are overlighting and communicating through me, as well.
I have so much compassion, gratitude, appreciation for all of you and what you are going through. I realize it is not easy much of the time. I know this from my experience on Earth. Earth is not an easy place in the third dimension.
You are starting to rise above the third-dimensional energies. This is not an easy process. In some ways it is a kind of a death process—not in any heavy, negative, mournful, sad way; but in a very real way. When people are in the process of dying—especially if it is a more natural, easeful death it is easier to see this process—you see people releasing, you might say, the shackles, the bonds that they have to the third dimension. They are preparing themselves for leaving this dimension and generally going into a fourth-dimensional space. It is not an easy process. It is why it generally takes a period of time for people to die. Sometimes people die quickly, in accidents and those kinds of things. Generally this is shocking to the being because they have to go through so much so quickly. In general, it is preferable for a person to have a longer space of time to adjust to the change that they go through when they die and release the third dimension, including their physical body.
But this process is greater than just the physical body. It includes all the aspects of the third dimension that you are tied into—aspects of thinking, aspects of feeling, aspects of energy, all sorts of things. In some ways you are going through that process now, to whatever extent you have not already gone through it.
Many spiritual beings have noticed the connection between dying and spiritual growth. They have noticed that there is something about the death process that seems to support people in their spiritual growth. They even have techniques of embracing a certain way of relating to living that’s connected to relating to dying, which seems to support people in their spiritual growth. Spiritual growth and relating to the death process are very connected. These are very similar things. And you are going through that now in this process of ascension.
Everyone is at slightly different stages. Everyone has different arenas that they are working with. Whatever still holds you, binds you to the third dimension is what you are working with, and you are feeling the challenge of releasing that. You might experience things such as being more emotional than you’re used to; having your energy feel heavy or difficult; having circumstances show up in your life that you may need to complete your work with in some way or other; having thoughts, patterns in your thinking show up that you still struggle with. They are all opportunities to complete this work and release your ties that limit you in a third-dimensional way.
There is an aspect to this that requires your conscious participation, requires you to make certain changes, to change certain behaviors. And there is an aspect of this that is going on that mostly just requires your support, your opening to it, your not interfering with it—but you don’t necessarily need to be directing it, understanding it, consciously involved with it in a way that you might think of as “working on your stuff.” (He laughs.) But you may need to support the process in ways such as resting more; staying balanced physically, emotionally, and mentally; not getting concerned about the process and doing things that help you to release concern, such as talking to other people about it. Support yourself to stay in the light in the midst of your experiences. This is where doing your spiritual practices, which support you, are very important, whatever those are for you—meditation, study, connecting with spiritual sources, connecting with spiritual gatherings, whatever things support you to stay in your highest vibration and light. All of these things are things you can do to support this process while it moves forward on its own. It will make it easier, possibly quicker, and it will make it so that you feel more comfortable and balanced and confident in going through this.
You have great help in this process. There are many beings who are actively directingtremendous energies of blessing, light, help to you, to all beings of the Earth, and to the Earth herself, to make this shift and this transformation. So it is easier than it has ever been. And there are a great many people who are going through this, like never before. It is a wondrous time and the process will start to feel more and more joyful and easeful to you over time. You are still in the somewhat early phases, so your experience is more one of difficulty or purification or challenge at this point. That will not always be the case. But it is the characteristic at this time. Just as in the death process, those who have gone a bit further into it report exquisite experiences of merging with light, with light-beings, with other beings that they know, of being in incredible, blissful, beatific spaces. And this, too, will be something that will more and more be your reality. But the early phases of the dying process are the phases of release and letting go. And this is the more challenging part.
When I and other beings come to you, it is to help you in any way that we can, through our blessing, through our clarification, through our guidance. That is my motive in coming to you right now, as always, and as so many beings are moved to do.
There are amazing signs right now all around you. I encourage you to be aware of them and to trust them. Things are changing. It is a reflection of your change, your change at the level of consciousness. You are becoming conscious of the fact that you can change anything. As more and more people become conscious of that, you are going to see so many things change. You are going to stop being controlled by a power structure that you feel you have no influence over and that determines the course of your life. This controlling power structure has been possible because you have been bound by third-dimensional consciousness, where you felt powerless, you believed in authority, and gave all the power to those authorities.
You are waking up, somewhat like Dorothy in your story “The Wizard of Oz,” to see that you have always had the power within you. You must simply recognize that and claim it, and in so doing you will stop giving that power away. It is so simple but so hard to see from the third-dimensional perspective. But there are those, like myself, who are committed to help you to make this transition. And it is underway.
You are going to see amazing changes in your world, which will be a reflection of the changes within yourself. Believe in these changes. Do not doubt them. Believe in what they signal. Your world is changing immensely. In a very short time you will have the kind of world that you have dreamed of and have thought, “If only…” but felt powerless to create. You will find your power.
But that is a few steps ahead, even though it has begun and is underway. But the full manifestation of it is a few steps ahead. The primary thing for you is to do your inner work, because that is what will allow this outer manifestation to shift.
This inner work is different from what most of you have focused on in the past. It is why my beloved Mary Magdalene is coming forth to help people. She brings a different voice, the voice of the Feminine, which is so important now, and which so many need help strengthening. The Feminine will help you immensely for what you specifically need to make this transition. Look for those who can help you with this Feminine transition within yourselves. That will be an enormous support for most people. And I am not only speaking to the women. This is for the men as well. We men will manifest the Feminine in a different form, but we need it as much as we need water to drink.
I feel complete in my speaking my thoughts at this time. I would like to hear what you are wanting help with. Please ask me your questions that I may help.
Question: Can you explain the fourth dimension? Does the body die when there is a transition to the fourth dimension?
Yeshua: In the fourth dimension you have a much lighter body. You are familiar with this body. You visit it when you go into your dreams. When you die, you also will move into the fourth dimension. You release your physical body at the earth level, but you maintain a fourth dimensional body.
Question: So in essence it is a death of the third-dimensional body.
Yeshua: Yes, or in some ways like a birthday or a graduation into your lighter body. In the ascension process, you do not need to die to do this. You are transforming your physical body into a fourth-dimensional body. That’s what’s different.
You also can choose to die and move into the fourth dimension. You all have done this before, in-between lives. But you can choose to come back in a fourth-dimensional incarnation. That is another option.
Question: When people people ascend, do they let go of their third-dimensional bodies, which means death in this dimension? Can one be in the fourth dimension and still be in a third-dimensional body?
Yeshua: You can visit the fourth dimension, and that is what you do when you dream. You are visiting the fourth dimension. Or you can ascend, where you go into the fourth dimension and don’t come back into the third dimension, unless you choose to visit the third dimension from the fourth dimension.
It won’t feel the same as dying. It will feel somewhat like going to sleep, and then you wake up and you are in the fourth dimension. But you will recognize it in a different way, because this is your home now, as opposed to feeling that you’re visiting. And you will have that awareness when it becomes your home. You will know.
Question: Does everyone who dies go into the fourth dimension?
Yeshua: They go into a fourth-dimensional space that is a between-life space, yes.
Question: And then what’s the fifth dimension?
Yeshua: The fifth dimension is the beginning of becoming a pure light being. You’re still individuated but you are not so much in a recognizable bodily form as at the physically based third dimension. So there is this graduated process, you might say, of becoming increasingly lighter and lighter.
At the fourth dimension, the lightness is more of an energetic lightness. It has the quality of dreaminess, which makes it very emotional. It also is very much connected to your mind. That’s called the astral aspect. It is very much like your dreams and the way people in appear in dreams. They have bodies. You see people. Yet they can do things that make them not seem physical—the way they come and go, instantaneously travel wherever they choose, things manifest instantly. You know this from your dreams. So that is a help to you to have that reference.
The fifth dimension is what many people imagine when they think of heaven. It is a place of great light, love, compassion, forgiveness.
At the fourth dimension, you are starting to realize your full ability to manifest. Whatever it is that you put your awareness on manifests. This can be things. This can be emotions. This is one of the reasons why it is so important to be strong in your emotional development at the fourth dimension. If you are a person who tends to fall into the lower frequency emotions—such as fear, anger, sorrow—you will manifest this. You will manifest the things that you are fearful of. You will manifest the things you are angry about. You will manifest the things you are sorrowful about. This is what happens in your dreams. This is what you call nightmares.
Part of the mastery at the fourth dimension is mastering being able to stay at the higher frequencies. This will be evidenced by your emotions. When you’re in the higher frequencies, you experience the higher frequency emotions. These carry more light. These are the ones that you tend to enjoy more, such as joy, bliss, peace, tranquility, inspiration, all of those kinds of things.
This is also very related to your thinking. It requires more discipline of your thinking, because whatever you think will manifest. You have some stories in your mythology, or your fairy tales, or even your jokes, where people are granted wishes and the first thing they think about is what manifests. Sometimes this is something very wonderful. Sometimes people think about the things that they don’t want to manifest and suddenly they’re dealing with that reality. This is an aspect of the fourth dimension that’s coming through.
So your thinking must be disciplined, it must be strong, to support what it is that you’re calling in. However, it is much easier to do that at the fourth dimension than at the third dimension. Your mind has a great deal more freedom, just as your body has a great deal more freedom. You are not locked into things that you are familiar with and used to at the third dimension. An example of this is that your thinking in terms of right and wrong, good and bad, will not be binding you at the fourth dimension. Your thinking in terms of competition, of me-versus-them, will not be binding you at the fourth dimension. Thinking in terms of things like judgment, which is really based in right and wrong—judging things as right or wrong, good or bad, appropriate-inappropriate, all the ways that you do that—you will be greatly released from this at the fourth dimension. All this will release you to a purity of mind that is much more supportive and much more easeful mentally at the fourth dimension.
Your work that you do now is part of what is going to determine where in the fourth dimension you gravitate towards, what your frequency will be. Your emotional work and your mental work will very much determine whether you will gravitate towards the lower frequencies or the higher frequencies. Those who tend to gravitate towards the lower frequencies don’t tend to stay at the fourth dimension, because it is too unpleasant. They return back, most often to the third dimension, where they have more stability and can work with greater stability to raise their frequency. There is help at the third dimension because of that stability, even though you’re in a polarized realm of the difficult along with the supportive.
The fourth dimension is generally understood, and rightly so, as a transitional dimension. You are preparing yourself for the fifth dimension. It is a kind of continuum. When you go to the fifth dimension, you are able to hold a high enough frequency that you can stay in the frequencies of unconditional love, compassion, forgiveness, stay in the light continuously. That is what is required for the fifth dimension. That allows you to start to do the higher work at the fifth dimension, gradually releasing your need for embodiment. Then you become a full light being that doesn’t require the same kind of body that is necessary at the third and fourth dimension.
The primary thing for you to understand at this point is your present work, your present stage, and what will assist you with that. But it can be helpful and reassuring to know where you are moving toward. For that, primarily the fourth dimension is sufficient for your understanding at this time. It is very difficult for you to understand the higher dimensions in any depth or detail because it is so different from where you are now. In many ways, it is not necessary and could even be a distraction to focus on that. It is most helpful to maintain your focus at your current level and what is necessary for you for moving forward into your next step.
