4th dimensional consciousness operates nothing like normal 3rd dimensional perception. It is a completely different function of awareness.
4th dimensional consciousness works heavily through the function of the perceiver. To experience something multidimensionally you need to move your consciousness into the stance of the observer.
This is very different to the 'active thinking' mode we use in 3D. To perceive or even navigate the multidimensional realms there is a method required where you use the active part of your consciousness to connect with the energy and then LET GO.
When you do then let go and just observe or perceive, you will find that things 'take over' as multidimensional experiences. It may take a little practice to get the hang of it. It is a skill that you can also bring to your 3rd dimensional world.
