Who is Ra? – Part 16: The Necessity of a Third Density Experience – Part 1/3

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

In Ra’s terms, we currently exist in the third density. As we learn, grow and evolve, we’ll eventually be ‘harvested’ into the fourth density, and from there, we’ll continue our journey upward (or rather, inward) until we’re eventually back in seventh density, where complete and total unity will trump the physical and even spiritual identities we’re used to.

Third density offers some of the most intense lessons we’ll learn throughout our journey back to Source, and our stay in this density is also shorter than the densities we have yet to experience. Most of us will spend less time here in third density than we spent in the first and second, but this sphere still has a lot to teach us about ourselves and our spiritual nature.

Here, we’ll hear from Ra about third density and the densities directly beyond it.

We’ll learn about our purpose for being in this sphere, along with the necessity to experience third density life with other people so we can gain an essential understanding of ourselves. We’ll also learn about our eventual ascent into higher spheres, where we’ll continue to learn about the inherent spirituality that comprises everything existence.

As Ra’s told us before, the famed ‘love’ and ‘light’ we hear so much about are technically distortions that were created by Source to sustain the lower and higher spheres, and these tools have not only created these spheres – they’ll help us explore them when our time comes.

For now, most of us are still incarnate in third density and have a lot of work to do before we can be back in the higher spheres, but after our inner work here is complete, we’ll ascend and see what they have to offer.

The third density’s apparently important to experience, and some of the most intense lessons are learned here that help us in our higher-dimensional travels later on. We learn things here that just can’t be learned anywhere else, and I’m sure this can especially be said for the earth, which is one of the more intense lower-dimensional planets out there.

I obviously haven’t been to any other planets, but we’ve heard from a lot of discarnate sources that the earth is among the most difficult and intense lower-vibrational planets to incarnate on. We experience a lot of darkness here on earth, but there’s also a lot of light here that we’d benefit from opening up to.

The darkness can only keep us down if we let it, and the intensity of both polarities makes it possible to find the light and spiritually excel right here on earth.

As Ra tells us, the third density’s much more intense than the others, and in the fourth, we’re refined to take in a greater spiritual perception.

“The 3rd density being, having the potential for complete self-awareness, thus has the potential for minimum activation of all energy centers. The 4th, 5th, and 6th densities are those refining the higher energy centers. The 7th density is a density of completion and turning towards timelessness or foreverness.


“This is a type of intensity which is not the property of 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th densities.” (1)

Positive fourth and fifth density entities can function without the need for negative polarity, they tell us.

“In the 4th and 5th densities the positive polarity functions without any need of the negative polarity and vice versa. It is to be noted that in attempting to sway 3rd density entities in choosing polarity there evolves a good bit of interaction between the two polarities.

“In 6th density, the density of unity, the 2 paths must take in each other. This is not difficult for the positive polarity which sends light/love to all otherselves. For the service-to self polarized entities it is difficult enough that at some point the negative polarity must be abandoned.” (2)

The purpose of being in third density, Ra shares, is to “…learn the ways of love.” (3)

When asked a question about why we spend less time in third density than the others, Ra tells us that our choice to come here in the first place was just that – a choice, and our journey here will take as long as required. They also share that there are other third density spheres that take longer to evolve from.

Question: “The 3rd density is, comparatively speaking, the twinkling of an eye, the snap of a finger in time compared to the others. Why is it so short compared to 1st and 2nd density?

“The 3rd density is a choice. The prelude to choice must encompass the laying of the foundation, the establishment of the illusion and the viability of that which can be made spiritually viable.

“The remainder of the densities is continuous refining of the choice. The choice is, as you put it, the work of a moment but is the axis upon which the creation turns.

“We are aware of creations in which 3rd density is lengthier to give a variant experience of the Creator. This creation is somewhat more condensed by its Logos than some other logoi have chosen. This creation is seen by us to be quite vivid.” (4)

As difficult as it could be to fathom, we chose to come to the third dimension so we could learn the intense yet necessary lessons that’d refine us and help us handle the fourth through seventh spheres more easily.

There are things we need to learn here; experiences that are essential if we want to greet the higher spheres with any degree of readiness. When we can realize that even the hardest things we experience here are necessary, we can be thankful for the difficult polarity we’ve incarnated under as we recognize its importance.

I’m sure most of us will continue to choose the higher polarity; the distortions of love and light, as we continue to evolve and greet higher and purer dimensions, but there are apparently other entities who stick to negativity right up until the point where they simply can’t any longer.

At some point, negativity will have to be abandoned – there’s no way around it.

The higher ‘distortions’ that lead us to infinity and complete un-distortion will have to be chosen at some point or another, and we can make it easier on ourselves by choosing these higher qualities now instead of miserably clinging to the older, more outdated qualities as we ascend up through the densities.
