This universe is one of many.
One expression in an infinite vastness of creation. One bubble of life, in an ocean of existence.
So many variables, so many stories, so many forms and shapes, endless experiences and identities existing at once, sharing the fabric of creation together. An immense and ever-expanding multi-verse of life.
So where does all this creation come from? Where does our universe, with its galaxies, and star systems and such an abundance of life, come from?
Is the multi-verse a random accident? No intent behind it, no divine intelligence, no spark of magic, no element of supernatural, but simply the result of certain elements and variables coming together, without any purpose or coordination, but rather by pure chance? Is life just a reaction to arbitrary factors interacting? A chemical result, or is there something more to it?
Is there a source? A purpose, an intelligence, something that allows all those elements and variables to even exist? Is there an architect behind the incredible dance of creation? Or perhaps architects? Is there a supernatural element to it, something untouchable, so special and so exceptional, able to breathe life into forms and animate them?
In my inner travels, I have at times gone past the boundaries of the universe, and quickly glanced at the primordial space where life itself originates. Of course, this is just my experience, and you all need to discover this space for yourselves, but I, for one, have found it to overflow with intelligence. With presence and self-awareness. And not the self-awareness of just one creator being, but of an infinite number of creator beings; countless architects of life, all holding an infinite potential to imagine, to birth universes and to experience life together.
And I saw myself as one of these architects – this eternal being, with no shape or form, bound to no laws or rules, able to birth endless universes from within, and to experience them all at once. And I am never alone in that space. I am always surrounded by unfathomable numbers of creators, equally potent in their abilities, and we all interact with such love, passion, playfulness, curiosity, and grace. And while we are always inter-connected, and we can feel each other with such clarity, we are not all one and the same being. I am my own being, and you are your own being. There isn’t just one sole creator in all of existence, animating all of us at once. Instead, we each have our own identity. Our own infinite potential. Our own source. We are our own creators, with our own personalities and traits and differences. We are equal, and always connected, but we are not one and the same.
Could you imagine being the sole creator in all of existence? One being residing over everything? Always knowing the outcome of every game and the answer to every question? Could you envision being the only self-awareness in all of existence? Unable to share any interaction, adventure, or dream, with anyone other than yourself? Unable to ever experience something that you don’t already know. Something that isn’t already within you. You would need to make aspects of yourself forget themselves, so as to create the illusion that there is something other than you.
How long could you truly do that for, before you longed to share your home, to share your creations and your experiences with someone outside of you? How long before you wished to explore something new, an unknown element, a surprise? Before you wished to have an interaction, or something, anything, reflecting back at you?
My experiences have shown me that the beauty of existence resides in the fact that we are not alone. We are part of a thriving and endless family of creators, ever adventuring into our inner worlds, but also into each other’s worlds and universes. This is not to say that we don’t love to explore ourselves, or spend time within, with just our own creation, because we absolutely do, and we do this for eternities. We love to be with ourselves and our own creations, figuring out the infinity that makes us who we are, but at the same time, we also absolutely love forming relationships with other creators, connecting to them, sharing, challenging and learning from one another, growing together. This gives us eternities of exploration ahead of us, both internally and externally, and endless choices in terms of what we wish to experience and how we wish to experience it (on our own, or with other creators). The concept of boredom is non-existent when you are part of an endless family of infinite creator beings.
So how do universes get created?
Outside the boundaries of the universe, beyond any and all creation, we each exist as pure potential. Nothing more, nothing less – “just” infinite potential to be, to imagine, to create, to experience. You can call this “infinite self”, “I AM”, “highest self”, “source”, etc. When we decide to create, we turn our infinite potential into actual creation.
The process of doing this is very much like the process of giving birth to a child.
When we create universes, we first go through a gestation period.
We create a womb within ourselves, and within that safe space, we project our infinite internal potential. In the womb, this potential becomes 3 things: consciousness, form and self-awareness – this is what makes up the child (the baby universe).
As eternal creators, we hold an infinite potential to imagine, an infinite potential to think, to feel, to desire, to conceptualize, to envision – an infinite, ever expanding, consciousness. When we create a universe, we first take a spark of this infinite imagination (a seed of consciousness) and we plant it inside the womb, inside the “child”(the universe). This small fractal of source consciousness becomes, in turn, the very consciousness of that entire universe.
What this means, is that the universe has its own independent, ever-present and infinite capacity to imagine potentials, to create possibilities, to explore different life paths, alternate timelines, endless choices and variables. It can think for itself, it can visualize its own existence, it can choose its own experiences, the universe is intelligent (it holds a small piece of the intelligence of its source creator). In a sense, the universe becomes its own being, its own entity, with its own consciousness and its own free will.
We, as creator beings, don’t really control the experiences of the universes that we create. We instead impregnate the universes with their own intelligence (an aspect of us) and we give them the freedom to make their own decisions, to explore at their own pace.
Consciousness has the ability to then manifest itself into form. The ideas, the intents, the imagination can take actual shape, and the universe can take unto a body, a structure, a design. This is when the very blocks of life, the elements and particles that shape the universe, come together to create an actual expression: something that can be seen, heard, experienced, sensed, shared, touched, something tangible.
When consciousness and form are fully in place within the womb, we, creator beings, are ready to project a spark of our self-awareness into the universe. We want not only an intelligent universe, but also an aware universe,a universe that knows itself as part of source, and recognizes its own infinite nature . This self-awareness is the soul of the universe, if you will – that which animates the creation and truly brings it to life.
Basically, we give the child (the universe) its own consciousness, its own form, and also its own self-awareness. We give it a small part of our own infinite potential, and it thus becomes its own being, with its own identity and creative individuality. A mini-version of us in a sense.
As a side note, human pregnancies work on the same principle. At the moment of inception, it is the consciousness of the baby that first arrives. This consciousness begins to then manifest itself into form. When the form is ready, and the fetus has developed into a full baby, the self-awareness (the soul) enters.
When consciousness, form and self-awareness are all in place, the child (the universe) is ready to be birthed.
This is when the baby universe is ready to become independent from its creator, independent in its experience and expansion. The universe exits the womb, and becomes its own being, with its own identity and its own infinite capacity to imagine, to manifest form, and its own spark of infinite self-awareness that always connects it to source.
Also, the umbilical cord is never cut between a creator and its creation. The child is independent to explore, to grow, to venture as far as it desires, but it always remains connected to source. There is no such thing as separation or disconnect. We, as infinite creators, don’t ever separate from any aspects of ourselves, as a matter of fact we are closely connected to and in perpetual communication with all our universes, and we can go back and forth in an instant.
Now imagine what a multi-verse would look like.
Instead of just one universe, imagine countless universes, all sprouting from within our infinite selves, expanding in all directions. An ocean of interconnected creations dancing and floating all around us, each one with their own consciousness, form and self-awareness. Infinite universes revolving around our core, like a multi-layered flamenco dress, beautifully spinning at immense speeds.
There is no way to ever portray what a true ‘multi-versal’ creator looks like, but I can attempt to offer you a very limited visual through the image to the right.
How do mini-universes get created?
Universes are very much like avatars.
They are organic, fully functional bodies, that can host the consciousness and self-awareness of their creators. When a creator being steps into the avatar, they basically merge their mind and soul with it, and become one with it. The avatar becomes the creator, and the creator becomes the avatar. The universe becomes the creator, and the creator becomes the universe.
The universe basically becomes its own being, alive, conscious and aware. It can think for itself, it can imagine, it can feel, it can create, it can experiment, explore, experience, it can do just about anything.
Being an entire universe does come with some nice perks: you become fully omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. You experiences past, present and future as one. You see all potentials, all timelines, all life-paths at once. You are everywhere at the same time and can manifest anything you wish. You know all there is to know, and you are truly one with the entirety of all life. This is the true experience of universal oneness.
Being in all places at once, and having all potentials simultaneously in one’s awareness is only one way of experiencing creation though. It’s like looking at a gorgeous planet, from a distance, and never getting close enough to actually observe its fauna, its flora, its climate, it’s environment, its life conditions; or like looking at a beautiful city from far away, and never getting a chance to actually go into the city, and explore the streets, the parks, the shops, the community, the restaurants.
Oneness allows you to be everywhere, but at the same time, it never truly allows you to be anywhere. You see the big picture, but you miss out on all the small pieces, on the unique individuality of certain experiences, on the flavors of certain connections, or the details and intricacies of specific lessons, the personal identities and traits of life-forms, or the value of the present moment.
There is a great deal of value in the experience of individuality. It can give us a new, different perspective on what we create. It allows us to explore each taste, each smell, each touch, each reaction, each encounter. It gives us intimacy, connection, dialogue, a sense of independence, it allows us to go deeper within the experience, and it helps us evolve in complexity. Individuality is an amazing way for the universe to understand itself, but for individuality to actually happen, a series of things need to happen first.
Gestation & birth
The universe has to take smaller fragments of its own creation, and give them individual life. It needs to create new, smaller avatars (mini-universes), and put new sparks of consciousness and self-awareness in them, bring them to life, and allow them (and implicitly itself through them), to experience for the first time a much more localized and intimate perspective on life.
The universe projects a fractal aspect of self into the “child creation“. When the child is ready to claim its own identity, and become its own being, the universe births it. Since we are always connected to all aspects of self, on all levels, the umbilical cord between a universe and a mini-universe is also ever present, just like the one between the universe and source.
The mini-universe, can itself then also give birth to a new mini-universe, and then the next mini-universe after that can also give birth to another one, and so forth.
Please consult the images below for an easier visualization.
Imagine this at a grand scale.
Universes upon universes, each with their own mini-universes, and those mini-universes with their own mini-universes, and those mini-universes also, and so on, until a creator is fully fractalized, from the largest aspect of self to the smallest; from the largest unit of consciousness and awareness to the smallest.
The image below is my own best attempt at showing you what universes within universes within universes would look like, as they expand from source.
And since we are not alone in existence, and are always surrounded by countless other infinite creators, when two or more of us meet, it ends up looking something like the images below.
In our own universe!
We have the same model: the universe as a whole, then the mini-universes (the galaxies), then the mini-universes within the mini-universes (the solar systems), and then the mini-universes, within the mini-universes, within the mini-universes (the stars, planets, etc.), and the smallest mini-universe of them all – the individuals (of any race).
This process of expansion/fractalization resembles the evolution of a tree in a sense. This is where “The Tree of Life” concept comes from. Our very universe is the tree of life. The galaxies are trees of life, the solar systems, the planets, us, our bodies, we are all trees of life, and our roots are all deeply grounded into source.
I need to make one thing very clear though.
Our current universe doesn’t have just one source – one creator who has chosen to split itself into endless fractals, and mini-expressions. We are not each extensions of the same creator being.
Instead, our universe is a collective creation, expressed and shared by countless creators at once. It was first started as a co-creation between two beings, but in time, endless numbers of creators joined, and it grew into an absolutely immense shared universe.
So far, I have only discussed about the birth of universes from just one source – one creator. But in actuality, universes can be created by groups of beings as well. One child (universe) can carry the fractal consciousness, fractal form and fractal self-awareness of two, three, four, or an infinity of different creator beings.
Look at the image to the left, and imagine that the colored balls represent different infinite creators. We are all floating together, in a beautiful shared dance, and when we do decide to create, we can do so on our own, in pairs, or in large groups.
The tree of life can sprout from just one source, or it can sprout from multiple sources combined.
Gestation & birth
When there are multiple sources to one universe, the creators all create a common womb, shared between all of them. They then each project their own infinite consciousness into the womb, followed by form, and then self-awareness. Together, all aspects from all creators become one: one consciousness, one form, one self-awareness. In the womb, the creators experience each other as one, in a beautiful tight embrace.
The universe is then birthed by all the creators at once, to become its own being, its own entity, with its own individuality and identity (of all of them combined).
If one infinite creator wishes to create a universe together with another creator, they both project a fractal of themselves (consciousness, form and self-awareness) into the womb. Within the safety of the womb, the two fractals merge to become one. Two worlds collide to create one world. Two infinite potentials merge to create one infinite potential. This is how the two beings can truly understand one another, and see through each other’s eyes.
Then, the shared universe is co-birthed by both beings.
Within this birthed universe, the two beings discover what happens when the two of them meet for the first time on the same dance floor, dancing to the same music; what happens when they imagine, create and experience life as one. The “child”(the universe) is the result of both ‘parents’ sharing themselves with one another. The child is free to explore and evolve on its own, but always closely supervised and connected to the “parents” (the umbilical cords from both sources are present).
And of course, this shared universe can itself then choose to become its own creator being, and give birth to new mini-universes, and those mini-universes to other new mini-universes, and so forth.
Basically, in our original state, as infinite creator beings, we can create universes entirely by ourselves, or we can create universes with the contribution of other beings. We love both options, which is why we all have countless universes, of all kinds, spread throughout existence, always dancing with one another. Multi-verses dancing with other multi-verses, universes with other universes, mini-universes with other mini-universes. Parents playing with parents, parents playing with children, children playing with children, all sharing the same playground. Endless colors, endless combinations, endless potentials.
For me, the dance of the multi-verse, of so many life expressions, moving individually, but also as a collective, with such majestic grace, such empathy and such synchronicity, resembles the beautiful dance of starlings in the sky. Please watch the incredible flock of birds below, and see not only the birds themselves, but try to see the star systems, the galaxies, the universes, the multiverses as they dance in unison in the same manner.
