We are not 'going anywhere' when we ascend. The fifth dimension is already here because Gaia has ascended. It's just that we don't allow ourselves awareness of the fifth dimension because we are so used to the fear-based third dimension. Our prison cell door stands open but we hang back, waiting to believe that we are truly free.
Some great wisdom here: https://franheal.wordpress.com/2015/11/16/ascended-lady-master-pallas-athena-begin-in-the-now-channeled-by-fran-zepeda/. 'See yourself experiencing your life from the perspective of 5D, from the perspective of Christ consciousness..What do you feel? What do you see?...Explore this beloveds, and practice it daily. It will soon become a permanent part of your daily experience.'
I know what I have conditioned myself to see: lack. Everywhere, lack, lack, lack. Lack of money, good job, partner etc. All I need to do is turn that around and see abundance everywhere instead. Hey, it's easy! Just do/think the opposite to the way you are conditioned and you will be living permanently in 5D. Let's try it.
