So many of you have heard the word ascension thrown around in the spiritual community. And for those of you who have experienced a spiritual awakening and have been dealing with confusion and possible emotional or physical side-effects or symptoms from it, we have designed this guide for you to help you understand why. No you’re not alone and you’re not definitely not crazy! Enjoy!
***We’ve included a quick guide to the 3rd, 4th, and 5th dimensions at the bottom of the post.
“To be alive on this planet during the time of ascension or to even be apart of the first wave is something that a soul truly earns.”- Matt Kahn
Ascension is the raising of our personal energy frequency. It occurs when we integrate our layers of Light (etheric) from our Spiritual Body or multidimensional Divine Self into our physical form. As we incorporate more of our true spiritual essence into our being we will fine-tune our chakra systems, expand our auric field, and activate our dormant strands of DNA into Crystalline DNA. This allows us to move into higher states of consciousness accessing new realities or dimensions within this world and ourselves. Greater consciousness means greater connection to our Divine Selves and a deeper understanding of the universe and who we really are. Ascension is also a conscious choice to engage in Evolution. It is not about physically leaving the planet or returning to source. It is not about watching the Shift go down on the TV or computer, or waiting for the external world to provide evidence of inner change. The ascension process affects every aspect, level and layer of a person’s being. The physical, emotional, mental, egoic and spiritual structures undergo acute transformation, evolving to meet the demands of a higher level of consciousness and a much faster energetic frequency. Not only are we ascending as humans but our planet is as well. Earth is a living, thriving, energetic mass that has an expanding consciousness and is calibrating herself just like us.
“The earth itself is changing vibration and frequency, and it’s preparing to raise itself into a new dimension.”- Dolores Cannon
We’ve all heard the term Waking Up before. It truly is one of the more extraordinary results of the Shift. Among the exterior changes: political, social, spiritual, planetary, and galactic, people will encounter profound internal transformations due to the ascending frequencies. You have or else you would not be drawn to this blog! This heightened awareness brings about more wisdom, knowledge, and a connection to celestial aspects of the Self. It provokes the urge to seek information and question everything you’ve ever been learned. Right now our society exists in a predominantly male centric energy. We are shifting into an equally balanced male/female energy. This is exactly what the world needs.
“Planetary Ascension is a change in frequency. Dimensions are based on vibration. Each dimension has a range of frequencies which create the reality or experience within that dimension. Anything living on a planet must resonate with the vibrational level of that planet (or higher) or it cannot exist in that reality. As the frequency of the Earth changes, everything on her surface is affected by this increase in frequency.”-Sandra Walter
The Shift and evolutionary upgrades in consciousness (the ascension process) have been discussed for years in spiritual circles and for freakin’ ages in ancient cultures! Waves of unique cosmic energy have been surging through our galaxy for decades, and the window of amplification has arrived. It isn’t the end of the world. It is the beginning of a new paradigm, and big change is typically rough. The Shift is a change in consciousness, a dramatic adjustment in the parameters by which we experience reality.
Each dimension (see dimension guide at bottom) has a range of frequencies that create the structure for experiencing a certain kind of reality. 3rd dimensional reality is the lowest density (frequency), which a human expression of consciousness may experience. There are many side effects of the old 3D reality: the illusion of linear time, the inability to perceive higher dimensions, and spiritual amnesia where the memory of past lives, experiences in other dimensions, and connection to the rest of the Universe is forgotten. All of that is changing during the Shift. This is why the phenomenon of awakening is so widespread- we are waking up from the amnesia of 3D and reconnecting with higher dimensional consciousness.
“As you become more open to the higher dimensions, you will not be able to make sense of many events that are occurring on the planet. Perhaps the only way to make sense of the negativity and chaos is to realize that many beings on the planet are not resonating with a loving vibration”-Connecting with the Arcturans
Higher frequency always overpowers the lower vibrations. As the limitations of 3D and 4D reality begin to dissolve, the planet supports the experience of a higher dimension. This change in dimensional structure is becoming very apparent to the awakened. Some people are freaking out because they think this could be the end of the world (as we know it)! The word apocalypse literally means lifting of the veil. The unveiling of higher dimensions that were once hidden by the density of 3D reality. Don’t fret!
“The doom timeline, a complete destruction of everything on her surface, has been eliminated thanks to the amount of awakened consciousness on the planet. She is heavily influenced by the collective consciousness, and millions have been connecting with her to smooth the transition during the Shift.”- Sandra Walter
“The different forces that are converging on the planet now are in part responsible for some of the chaos that is now being experienced and that will be experienced with greater intensity in the near future. Everything that is occurring is coming to a boiling point now on your planet, and this boiling point is going to be reaching a very sharp and heightened aspect, and aspect that can lead to a general planetary shift in consciousness.”- David K. Miller
In order to hold a higher vibrational state, one must transform the physical body, light (etheric) body and the consciousness that animates it. Your higher self is merging with your lower dimensional self after a very long separation in the 3D experience. In order for your body to be capable of holding that higher frequency, it must transform into a Crystalline based cellular structure. DNA that has been inactive or dormant must be stimulated. Our consciousness must be expanded beyond the boundaries of habitual 3D and 4D existence. It is physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually challenging, yet quite amazing. Not everyone has chosen to awaken in this lifetime, nor do they have to. There are many factors involved in experiencing the Ascension process, and we are all here to play out the Shift in our own way. Please don’t feel pressure or embrace feelings of being left behind. The fact that you’re reading this shows that you are indeed on the right path. You must trust the timing of your life. Everything is exactly where it’s supposed to be. You are doing great!
Eventually, the lower 4D expression of Earth will drop out of existence. You’ve probably heard the term “New Earth” being thrown around and this is it! We now have a holographic platform for a 4D experience as the collective masses awaken and choose to ascend to 5D Earth in waves of ascension (happening now). I do not know how long the 4D platform will be available. Whether it is 2 years or 200 years, the inevitable Shift is well underway. This is something I’m sure we will hear more about. The entire planet and all of her tenants are experiencing the Shift, regardless of their awareness of it. I encourage you all to seek, ask questions, and don’t forget to love love love.
“Help embody a frequency to lead the rest of the world home.”- Matt Kahn
Let’s chat about the side effects of the Shift. Yes, they are very real! As we raise our vibrations and ascend into higher levels of consciousness we will experience some discomfort emotionally, mentally and physically. I have sure have! We are transforming our dense lower vibrating carbon based cells into higher vibrating Crystalline cells. We are going through a pretty intense shifting process of body, mind and spirit. As we ascend, we transcend old ways, habits, and stale energy. Everything that no longer serves our highest good or purpose will be released! Mundane relationships, toxic behaviors, stagnant careers, cookie cuter belief systems, even where you choose to dwell, may no longer feel good to you. It’s terrifying because a hefty amount of change seems to happen in a tiny amount of time. Ultimately it’s a positive experience and will result in tremendous personal growth even though it may be uncomfortable and chaotic. Shit happens so shift can happen (as I tell my friends). In order to ascend we must embrace the change and we must practice the act of surrendering and allowing. Please remember that discomfort is temporary. Eventually, everyone choosing to ascend into the higher states of consciousness will move into a state of health, harmony, joy, peace, spiritual abundance, full consciousness and unity consciousness.
- Loss of identity. You feel like you are loosing yourself. Not feeling like you “fit in” anymore.
- Dark Night of the Soul. As the old you dies (along with that ego) and you make room for the birth of the new you (spiritual Self) you may experience an increase of chaos in your life. Your old ways just aren’t working for you anymore. It’s normal to want to hit up a Bali Yoga retreat verse partying in Vegas. These types of changes are normal! The sooner you can let go of the old and allow yourself to step into a new way of thinking and being the smoother your life will move. Depression, grief, sadness, loss of identity and confusion are very common during the Dark Night of the Soul.
- Your emotional body may experience upheaval during the cleansing process. One week you may experience joy, bliss and euphoria and the next week you may experience anger, fear and confusion. You may feel like something is wrong with you. This is part of the clearing process so please do not judge yourself. You’re suddenly not bi-polar or have a new 24 hour PMS problem. You are cleansing and it’s beautiful. Just ride the wave.
- Sudden extreme sensitivity to loud and crowded environments. While our energy bodies rapidly shift we will desire more time alone in our sacred space. Our connection to the Earth and nature deepens and we begin to experience the unification and universal flow of all living things. Spend less time at the mall and more time camping.
- Heightened desire to surround yourself around “like-minded” people and healthy relationships. You simply cannot tolerate low vibrational environments or toxic relationships any longer.
- Irritability and anxiety like woah. Acceleration of time and not feeling like you can accomplish everything that needs to be done.
- Feelings of despair. Our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies are integrating higher vibrational energies from our Divine Self. As we face God, we face ourselves. Things that need to be healed are being brought up to the surface for us to transcend. Previous behaviors and actions (karma) are being balanced at an accelerated rate. Our God Self loves us unconditionally, but our funky energy must be brought into balance. It cannot be taken with us. Pulsating rhythms of our past are vibrating away and it affects how we feel. Keep riding that wave.
- Clumsiness, feeling out of sorts. Distracted.
- Increase in psychic development and awareness. The ability to see beyond the veils may be emotionally disturbing if you are not accustomed to the truth of reality. These are natural abilities that will be returning to all of us who are choosing to awaken and expand our consciousness. Be accepting of this process and do not resist. Work through your fears. We have earned the return of our spiritual gifts so please welcome them!
- Our mind, ego and intellect will struggle to come to terms with the true nature of reality. It will try to cling to the old and not want to shift or change. Your mind may begin to panic as you experience the disintegration of your old reality. Blame, anger, fear and frustration are common.
- Difficulty holding a clear thought. A little foggy with a side of memory loss.
- Communication difficulties. People do not seem to hear or understand you.
- Mentally in high gear. Can burn out quickly, just relax.
- Obsessive desires to understand what is happening.
- Zoning out for long periods of time, not wanting to do anything.
- Intense electrical energy and heat that runs through the body. The body is being rewired to carry higher frequencies. Kundalini experiences may be common.
- Vertigo and dizziness. The right and left sides of the brain, our masculine and feminine energies are aligning and coming into balance. The pineal, pituitary and hypothalamus glands are being activated (Yay!). We are also having a difficult time staying grounded because of the higher energies from our Divine Self entering through the crown chakra. Daily “grounding” exercises and expanding and growing energetic “roots” out of our root chakra into the Earth will be helpful. Get your Qigong on!
- Intense detoxification. As your body clears out toxins you may experience rashes, heat, itchiness, tingling or crawling sensations on the skin. The skin is our biggest elimination organ.
- Gastrointestinal detox. Disturbances are common as the body tries to rapidly release everything that is keeping it from reaching the higher vibrations. You’ll find a desire for more plant-based foods. Meat and denser foods will lower the vibration.
“You’re going to stop killing animals to eat them because the vibrations of a creature will now make you very sick. When you plant your food, you’re going to plant not with a quantity, but a quality of love.”- Dolores Cannon
- High-pitched sounds and buzzing in the ear. This can be an indicationof accessing higher dimensional aspects of yourself.
- Hyper nervous system, panic attacks, and anxiety attacks. Normal, normal, and normal.
- Heart palpitations. Our heart chakra is opening, activating and expanding. It must pump faster to accommodate the new energies coming from our God Selves. As the heart expands you may also experience breathlessness or difficulties taking a deep breath. Bringing beautiful heart energy into the galaxy is just what this world needs. Let it rip.
- Back Pain. Our spine is being altered to handle higher frequencies and prepare for the raising of the Kundalini energy.
- Cranial pressure, headaches, neck and shoulder pain. Migraines.
- Bodily aches and pains. Our old cellular structure is dissolving giving birth to our Crystalline structure. The body is being prepared to hold more light and a higher vibration. As we ascend, energy can get stuck in the etheric body creating blocks. Energy work, exercise, massage and hot Epsom salt baths will help. Also sun-bathing helps burn off mucous and etheric blocks that naturally collect as our entire system transmutes all of its density into light.
- Water retention. Our Crystalline body requires more sodium chloride to ascend. Drink lots of water and try to sweat once a day.
- Disruptive sleep patterns.
- Extreme Fatigue. Our physical and energetic bodies are growing and expanding. This requires an enormous amount of energy.
- Flu-like symptoms.
- Heightened allergies.
Ascension is a conscious process that requires a choice to engage with the unknown in order to experience something brand new. It is a remarkable, challenging and rewarding process that frees the Self from perceived limitations. I think about how much I’ve changed since my ascension process started a couple years ago. I feel like a completely different person. I am so grateful to be on this planet during such a special time for humanity. If you have any questions we’d love to connect with you in the comment section below! Namaste.
A Quick Guide to Dimensions: The 3rd dimension is the depth of the line. If the line becomes a flower, this would give the line dimension. Think about why we wear 3D glasses to a movie. It brings you out of 2D and into 3D. Get it? The 4th dimension is space and time, which is nonlinear. In the above example, you could look at what length of time that the flower existed. But this version of time is a construct of a 3rd dimensional reality, which places limitations on time. For example, a day is 24 hours long and a year is 365 days. Yet our version of 3rd dimensional time coexists with nonlinear time and we go there every night when we sleep. How is this possible? When you dream, do you ever see a clock or truly know what the exact time is when you are dreaming? How about when you hit the snooze button at 7:15 and you fall back asleep. During that time you could have the most beautiful and intricate dreams that seemed to last quite a while. Then the alarm rings 7:20 and you wonder how that was possible!? In our dream state as well as in a deep, meditative state, we enter nonlinear time where time does not exist as we know it in our 3rd dimensional reality. By removing manmade time, you can escape from the paradigms that bind us to a 3rd dimensional reality. The 5th dimension is where consciousness prevails and the universal law of one is the only real law. Back to the flower example… If you see the flower in 5D you can observe the stages of its life simultaneously from creation, to preservation, then disintegration. The 5th dimension is where thoughts become instant manifestations. This is why it is so important to remove all fear-related information from your daily schedule. Our thoughts are much more powerful than we know. Choose wisely!
