What is “ascension”? It’s the process of personal awakening where your energy bodies open to embody more of your divine light in physical form. This process shifts your core vibration into a higher timeline-matrix which many are referring to as 5D, love/unity consciousness. Here your chakras and energy systems receive an upgrade, dormant DNA becomes activated, and you begin to experience more of your true multidimensional nature. Here you naturally access more flow, trust, synchronicity and miracles.
Ascension is a process that is affecting a small percentage of the global population right now. Less than 1% is going probably through this in the way I am about to describe. It is important to note that Lightworkers or Starseeds are the group going through the ascension process now (and since you are here reading this that includes you).
What can be said now is this process is waking you up to your stellar origins. Eventually the whole planet will of course wake up but through a different process, which will most likely come through revelations about the true nature of what has been going on behind the scenes by those running the planet. (It is likely that many who are not complete with the lessons of 3D life will choose to leave this dimension of the planet to continue their soul evolution elsewhere.) When more of your divine light is held in your energy bodies, you will naturally begin to release any area of your life that is connected to the old low frequency paradigm.
Certain people and situations may start to fall away to make space for more high vibe individuals (at the bottom of the vibrational scale are energies such as guilt, helplessness, rage, shame. Higher up energies include joy, love, acceptance, generosity, and service). Perhaps a relationship that once worked will no longer feel joyful. Perhaps a job that seemed comfortable for a while now feels increasingly uncomfortable. Perhaps you will feel the urge to change your diet or where you live. This process is challenging but ultimately it will bring many gifts and a greater sense of wanting to assist the global ascension process in some way.
What to Expect in the Early Stages
The early stages of ascension can include very physical mutational symptoms such as headaches, diarrhea, rashes, muscle, and joint aches. Headaches, blurry vision, increased or decreased hearing, and sometimes chest pains are due to expanding energies in the heart and head. You may hear strange noises in your head such as strange buzzing. Brain chemistry starts to alter as the right and left brain functions blend. Headaches may occur as the pituitary and pineal glands begin to change in size.
The DNA structure (within the etheric body) begins to change as the etheric body floods with light. This may release old energy programs/patterns. It is very common to feel more sensitive to your environment. For instance, crowds or noise might feel overwhelming. Dietarily, you may feel inclined to eat less and include more light, live food. Pure water also becomes very important. Some substances such as sugar, meat or alcohol may be cut down or eliminated. Sleep patterns may shift. There can be bouts of sleeplessness. Vision and hearing difficulties may arise as these senses are being realigned to function differently. You begin to question: “Why am I here?” and “What am I meant to be doing?”
What to Expect in the Intermediate Stages
Physical aches and pains usually continue. Your thought processes become non-linear and you can oscillate between knowing and doubt, fear and ecstasy. There is a yo-yo effect, one day joyful and the next the world seems dark and heavy. You may have high energy one day and feel drained the next. This can be a time of great emotional clearing as you rid yourself of emotional baggage. You may feel like crying at the drop of a hat or feeling angry or sad with little provocation. You have a greater desire for your own space. You may question what is real, and at times, feel as if you are going crazy. Your ego may feel at war with impulses from your higher self. Even though you fear you are going crazy you feel a strong urge to follow Spirit. You cannot explain this to some people. You begin to feel synchronicity working and you may also get glimpses of higher abilities such as telepathy or clairvoyance. Dreams become more ‘lucid’ and you may dream of strange new places and people. Time is becoming more fluid and you may actually start to dream of the possible future. You are re-evaluating your life. This feels uncomfortable but it must be done. It is a time of letting go, of moving on. Often relationships or jobs that feel stuck can end or change rapidly as there is simply no room for denial on any level.
What to Expect Further Down the Line
This level is where you surrender the fight and your ego stops trying to battle with your higher self. You surrender to the higher power that is working through you. There is a dissolution or upgrading of resistant ego selves. The ego becomes more positively polarized and a more faithful servant to the higher self. The logical/rational parts within you stop trying to control the process. You are more open and trusting of your intuitive guidance and higher impulses. You are now an instrument for the light. You start to notice signs and portents from your Higher Self. Perhaps random messages have a powerful meaning for you. You may see master numbers everywhere such as 11, 22 and 33. Many limiting patterns from this present life and from many other lifetimes (this dimension and others) are neutralized in the deep unconscious. This allows for a greater sense of ease and flow. Your DNA has been activated to a full 12 strand (in this time frame there are 2 in the physical and 10 in the etheric), and you begin to manifest a new reality. One where you feel more grounded, open, willing, focused and purposeful. You have shifted your relationship with time that no longer feels linear but more multidimensional. There is no separation between you and your higher self.
Coping with All of the Above
The core attitude to adopt to successfully navigate this process is one of letting go. Holding onto something that is not really working for you is a sure way to make the process more difficult. Everything is going to change and perhaps faster than might feel comfortable. This may bring up confusion for a time. Realize that you cannot work out what is happening with your logical mind. Yes the information here and elsewhere can give some understanding. Trust your feelings. Listen when your body is telling you to slow down, breathe and seek silence. Take time out as often as you can. Rest is essential.
On the other hand gentle exercise such as yoga or chi gung is great when the time feels right. Self-love is a good stance to take when witnessing any difficult feelings that arise. Trust your intuition. Perhaps journaling will help or some other method of expressing what needs to be expressed. Give voice to the child within, your vulnerable side, that may struggle with this process. Find people who understand the process and hang out with them. Just a friendly smile over a cup of tea can be very nurturing and healing. Salt baths can help clear negative energies from your energy fields. For some, crystals can also be a helpful aid to clear the chakra system. In this process there are new chakras opening and some crystals can help. Amethyst can have a very calming effect. Bloodstone can support the physical body. Kunzite can help with emotional swings. Sodalite can help the mental body.
There are flower essences that can help; I have found that the Bach Remedy of White Chestnut and Gorse are very helpful if there is a dark-night-of-the-soul-type of experience. Rock Rose is very good if there is a lot of fear associated with the process. Golden Rose from Chalice Well Gardens in Glastonbury is great for opening to higher frequencies of love. If you search on Google for “flower essences and ascension” you will find many other sources. (If you are worried about any physical symptoms it is always wise to get yourself checked out.) If you go to see a healer, make sure they understand the ascension process.
Since the planet is also ascending, nature can be a very useful place to hang out if and when you feel overwhelmed. Why not think about visiting your local park and sit under a friendly tree or even better get out into the wilds of nature? Sea air can be very cleansing. Mountains and forests can also be very healing. Very importantly, remember to ask your higher self, guides and angels for help. There is always much help in the spirit realms. Work with new dispensations for clearing karma and dense energies such as the Violet Fire. Whatever you are going through remember that suffering is generated whenever we fixate on the past or on the future. Bring yourself back to the present moment with your breath. Above all treat yourself with loving kindness.
