Reminder: Experience moments with all of the senses.

 

Dears,

From what we’ve observed, humans value what they view with their eyes more than they value information arriving through any of the other senses.

“I’ll believe it when I see it,” you may say.

This statement has been repeated so many times that it actually became a valid form of proof of something in your world existing. It is a “fact” in many peoples’ eyes.
Well we would like to point out a discrepancy regarding this notion:

You believe that many things exist, even though you can’t see them.
How about wind? Or viruses? Or bandwidth.

So you see, you may have some conflicting beliefs clouding that vision of yours.

The original statement of “I’ll believe it when I see it” was cast out into the field by a creative—and doubtful—soul long ago, and it caught on. Humanity ran with this idea in the planning of its collective experience on higher levels, to see what could be created from within such limitations.

On the physical plane, however, Humanity forgot all about its little plan, choosing to experience visual limitation in a literal manner, through biological shortcomings. That’s one reason so many of you wear glasses. But it goes beyond that:

The more that the human collective focused on requiring visual evidence, the smaller the scope of your visual spectrum became.

In other words, you taught yourselves to see far less than there is to see.

This is a fantastically exciting limitation to overcome, mind you, evidenced by the proliferation of ghost explorers and blurry UFO sightings that captivate large audiences. You’re dying to see what you can’t see, even if you aren’t aware of this desire on a conscious level.

Now as if a limited visual spectrum weren’t enough, you adventurous humans decided to up the stakes, by adding practically-guaranteed deterioration of your eyes through the aging process. Oh, and let’s add one more: “There’s only so far that the eye can see.”

Bah! How could your eyes ever win under such circumstances?

You can drop these ideas, and you can return to seeing things very differently in all of your Nows.  So now that a few questionable beliefs have been brought to light, what exactly are you humans capable of?

Let’s take a mental photograph and see what happens.

Visualize yourself in a happy moment; it’s so enjoyable that you have the desire to snap a photo. You point your camera at the subject, and you press the button. Oh good! That moment’s now been captured in your memory, both figuratively and literally.

Now let’s imagine that we go to your photo album and view the photo. When you do, you flinch! For you discover that your finger was partially covering the lens. That moment you were trying to capture…was ruined.

That darned finger! Why would it show up unexpectedly like that?

Did you do it on purpose? Surely not. So no need to chastise your finger, or any other part of you. Perhaps you’ll try again, hoping the moment stays alive. Perhaps, you only had that one chance. Either way, you’ll be left with a feeling about the situation.

Here is a great opportunity to ask yourself a question:

Do you use your eyes to find the perfection in things, or to find the imperfections in things?

For you know that you’ll always find what you’re looking for.

Now let’s look at our smudged photograph situation again from the creative level. Does the intrusion of your finger between the subject and the eye of the observer negate the existence of your subject? Of course not, it’s still there. Here is yet another example of something existing, even when you can’t see it.

Once we’ve done some introspection regarding unconscious associations between the eyes and existence itself, let’s have some fun and talk about multidimensional photography.

Go back to imagining that moment that so inspired you. We’re going to take another picture.

This time, as you aim at your subject, you’ll use more than your eyes. Notice the sounds around you. Notice your subject’s expression, if there is a person or animal involved. What do you smell? Are you feeling light, or heavy? The idea here is to register the moment with ALL of your available senses, prior to taking the photo.

You may ask why this is important, when most viewers can’t detect what you were hearing or smelling in that moment. We are here to tell you that such technology is already active in your collective’s field; and it will be a photographic standard before the majority of you can say “cheese.”

So if you want to be a great photographer that captures moments with enhanced texture and meaning behind them, allow all of your senses to contribute. Your finger—which represents your sense of touch, by the way—can take part by being the conscious presser of the button; by including your sense of touch in the experience, it’s possible that you may never again encounter errant photobombing from the other side of the lens.

You will probably find yourself taking more time snapping your photos, with all of this sensing and feeling involved.

Capturing moments in this state of enlivened energy stores them with extra metadata, as you call it. This information will lay latent in the photograph, until the technology capable of translating it is adopted by your collective as a possibility.

We are excited to see what you do with this information. For you are creating multidimensional artifacts here, capable of disseminating great amounts of sensory information to all those who encounter them. This is communication, New Earth style.

It’s a multifaceted creation, and it’s just the beginning of your sensational journey of awakening.

 

My love to you from Far Away and Very Near,
