Ascension is a New Age buzzword that a lot of people don’t quite understand.
Some think it’s a process of consciousness expansion (I agree) while others think our physical bodies will literally change and/or be left behind (I don’t agree…I think). While there are many schools of thought on precisely what Ascension is, the very least we need to know is that it involves a spiritual awakening and is happening, whether we like it or not.
As for my thoughts (and also what I’ve been told by The Guides), I believe Ascension involves a profound shifting on an energetic level. Our frequency is literally becoming more fine-tuned, and this frequency shift affects the totality of who we are: mind, body, and spirit. The end result of Ascension will be a different type of existence, one where our consciousness is expanded and our heart is open.
However, in order to achieve this type of transformation many things must change — and change can be difficult.
The evidences of Ascension are everywhere, even to those unfamiliar with the concept. These evidences are commonly misidentified and misunderstood and tend to be things like physical ailments, emotional and energetic disturbances, and life challenges. In this article I’ll be giving you five of the most common and sometimes most painful symptoms of spiritual awakening/Ascension. I’m choosing these five because I have experienced each one of them, big time. Make no mistake however: there are many other symptoms of Ascension.
(One disclaimer: I am not a doctor, I am an intuitive. I’m teaching from a strictly spiritual perspective, not a diagnostic one. If you’re experiencing physical or emotional symptoms you should check with a medical professional to rule out any underlying health problem.)
Most Common Ascension Symptoms
1. Spontaneous Psychic (or Kundalini) Activation
One of the most common complaints I hear from my students is that they are psychic one moment and then seemingly not psychic the next. They do receive Spirit messaging, but not often, and not predictably. Sound familiar? Here’s why:
We are constantly taking in new and divine Ascension energies, and these energies aren’t necessarily predictable or consistent. They often flood into us in an instant — into our physical bodies, our auras and our chakra systems. When this happens our psychic receivers are blown wide open and we instantly perceive at a higher level. We might know things without knowing why we know them; we might see things like energy or auras or dead people; we might hear things like music or voices, etc.
However, as with everything, the body will work to assimilate the new energy it receives and hurry to balance our various systems. This often closes our receivers down as quickly as they were opened, giving us the impression that our abilities are not consistent.
If you are an inconsistent psychic, this is likely why. If you’re interested in working with your psychic abilities and keeping these receivers open in a sustained fashion, I highly suggest you consider taking my course, Everything Psychic, where I teach you about this and much, much more.
2. Weight Gain
Many people have been gaining weight without any real change in their diets
or exercise plans. Some of my students have gained as little as five pounds (and yet cannot seem to take it off) and others as much as one hundred pounds or more, sometimes in a relatively short period of time. This can obviously be very frustrating (believe me, I get it), and also have a negative impact on our health.
So…why are we gaining weight?
The answer is simple, actually. The influx of Ascension energies is unfamiliar to the body. When the body is confused, or feels under attack, it seeks to defend itself, and one way it does that is by creating another layer of energy for protection.
And fat? Fat is energy.
The body will use fat or mass in order to block out unfamiliar energies. While frustrating, we must understand that the body is doing the best it knows how to do, for our own good. Instead of allowing weight gain to depress you, take the necessary steps to give your body what it needs to deal with Ascension energies.
In the coming weeks I will be posting another article on Ascension and weight and also the positive steps you can take to correct any imbalance you’re experiencing. For now focus on drinking lots of water — at least half your body weight in pure water ounces, plus twenty ounces — and eating high vibration foods like locally grown organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. This will give your body what it needs and also help you to drop some of the unwanted pounds.
3. Ear Ringing
I am hearing about this symptom more and more, no pun intended. 🙂 Some of us hear one clear, loud tone in our ears while others (like me) experience multi-tonal or multi-layered frequencies. These sounds can happen at any time of the day and sometimes are very loud. Others experience ear ringing constantly.
I personally do not hear ear ringing all the time, in fact usually only during specific spiritual pursuits (like meditation and prayer) or when I am receiving a download. A download is a package of energy that provides an attunement you may need, or new information (and/or a capacity to receive information) that will help in your enlightenment process.
Ear ringing can also be due to the music of the spheres. Put simply, the music of the spheres is the sound that dimensions make. Ascension causes us to leave one dimension and enter another. As we draw closer to the next dimension we will experience it in many ways, and one of those ways is to hear it.
While ear ringing can be bothersome, try not to let it frustrate you. Make a positive association with the ringing in your ears and know that it’s a sign that you’re enlightening and literally moving to the next, higher level.
4. Relationships Ending
One of the most painful of all the Ascension symptoms is the loss of relationships. These are often extremely close relationships, for example marriages and long-term friendships. Because these relationships are so dear to us we often resist letting them go. This unfortunately prolongs our misery and only brings more pain.
When our energy changes, our frequency changes. Frequencies emit a signal and frequencies are also magnetic. This means that we draw back to us conditions and experiences based on (and that match) our signal. And so it stands to reason that as our frequency ascends we will begin attracting new people.
We will also begin sloughing off people who aren’t a match for our frequency.
This is happening at almost alarming rates in the lives of spiritual people. We are falling out of contact with people who we have loved deeply, or are no longer able to relate to them. We find ourselves unable to communicate or understand people we used to totally vibe with. That’s because they are not ascending at the same rate, or because you’re both on different levels. Again, do not resist this.
Advancement requires new endings and new beginnings. Fighting to keep relationships that no longer serve us insures that we not only stunt our progress, but the progress of those we love, who have their own journeys to take. If it’s time to let them go, let them go.
5. Sensitivities and Intolerances
This is one of the symptoms I personally struggle with the most.
One of my biggest sensitivities is in the area of my skin. If I’m around negativity or toxic energy, I get an angry rash. If I eat foods or drink substances that aren’t in alignment with Spirit, I break out in hives. If I use chemicals in my laundry or to clean my home, yup, you guessed it, angry red bumps on my legs, arms, etc. It can be downright miserable.
In my 20s I could eat or do just about anything I wanted. But now in my 40s? Forget about it. A glass of red wine costs me, and costs me big. Eating Mexican food can make me sick for hours. There are some things I just can’t have anymore, and it’s because the energy of those things is antagonistic to my shifted frequency. It’s no longer a match, and if I force the issue and eat what I shouldn’t, or do things I shouldn’t, my body lets me know — and it lets me know fast.
Don’t be surprised if you begin to develop more and more sensitivities. My best advice here is to listen to your body and take its recommendations seriously. Remember, your body is ALWAYS talking to you; it is ALWAYS telling you what you should and should not do if you want to thrive physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Follow the body and you will avoid a great deal of discomfort.
Let me say one more time that Ascension is happening, whether you signed up for it or not. You can either understand the process or ignore it. You can partner with it or resist it. The latter in both scenarios will only make it harder in the long run. Accept what is happening and work with it.
