Over the past weeks I've been speaking with people and doing some informal survey research of what information is out there, both online and in books, about the process of Ascension. I've looked for recent personal accounts of having ascended while incarnate but, as of to date, have not found any new ones. Most of what is written about the process of ascension is by people who have not yet ascended. The information available comes in the form of channelled messages of guidance from our colleagues in the non-physical and insights from people's recent personal experiences. Understandably there is a lot of confusion because Ascending while incarnate has not been on option available to many, until now. We are the fore-runners, the leading edge, in graduating to the next level of consciousness while staying alive in our physical bodies. We've been given this rare opportunity to graduate and make the leap to the next level of conscious awareness while remaining in our current incarnate lifetimes. This is an enormous gift, and one which is immensely humbling. This opportunity to experience Ascension while incarnate is a very deep honour we are receiving in recognition of the hardships and struggles we've endured and the contributions we're making to Earth's Ascension process and Humanity's great shift. I, for one, am deeply grateful for this honour.
My experience is that it's always helpful while going through a process of change to understand what that process is. Knowing what the process is that we are going through allows us to identify where we are along that process, gives us land marks, and removes the uncertainty of going through the unknown. From my observations, there are a fair amount of misunderstandings about what Ascension is and how it takes place. I'd want to provide some definition and clarifications that can assist you as you move through the process of Ascension.
The process of Ascension is a three stage process.
Stage 1. Preparation The first stage is a lengthy period, usually years long (always years long is probably more accurate), spent in preparation for the moment of Ascending. Most of the information available about what is generally termed the "Ascension Process", concerns the first preparation stage. Which makes sense because that is the stage where everyone is right now. Many people are not consciously aware that they are preparing to Ascend, although their Soul knows and is guiding them. However, at this point, being consciously aware of the process of Ascension and the preparations involved will assist you on your path. It's easier to get some place when you know that's where you're actually headed. Trust that your Higher Soul Self is connected to you in every cell of your body and is guiding you perfectly on your path.
There are four tasks that are undertaken during the preparation stage and they occur in an interrelated manner.
a. Personal Growth The period of preparation is one of significant, steady personal growth and self discovery. This most often begins in an effort to feel better about oneself and have one's life work better. One might characterize it as a period of pulling together and applying the wisdom gained through many lifetimes to arrive at a deeper, more expanded understanding of who you are and what you have experienced in this lifetime. We examine the events and experiences in our life, learn to reframe our stories, and seek new understandings about what we have and are experiencing. We mine our experiences for the learning. We strive to learn new and better ways of communicating and interrelating with others in our life. We work to understand who we really are and why we are here.
b. Clearing, Releasing, and Refining Your Self Closely related to the task of personal growth, there is the process of bringing up, examining, clearing, and releasing old, outgrown patterns, ideas and beliefs, and emotions. The clearing and releasing takes place at the mental, emotional, physical, and sometimes spiritual level. We clear out and replace old patterns of behavior and communicating. We identify limiting ideas and beliefs that no longer fit and that get in our way. We release false personnas and labels that others gave us that do reflect who we really are. We run out the doubt. We develop trust in our selves and in our process. We steadily release fears and self-doubt. In the process of clearing and releasing, we steadily refine who we really are and move towards consciously being our true Self.
c. Raising Vibration As we progress in our personal growth, and clear, release, and refine who we truly are, we raise our vibration. Our emotions lift, moving out of depression, anger, and fear. We develop courage. We steadily transition to living more and more of each day in optimism, hope, joy, love, and unconditional acceptance. As our emotions lift, we learn to maintain more uplifted, positive thoughts. We learn to raise and control our vibration at will, and may begin developing a physical awareness of our vibration.
d. Stretching and Expanding Towards the Next Higher Level of Conscious Awareness As we grow and release old patterns of behavior, limiting ideas, expectations, and beliefs, and raise our vibration, we begin stretch and expanding our conscious awareness towards that of the next level. We practice maintaining our awareness in the present. We tune inwards to listen to our inner knowing, to our intuition, and begin receiving direct communication and answers from our Higher Self. We learn to expand and shift our perspective so that we gain deeper understanding about our reality. We discover new tools and begin practicing new approaches to creating our lives. We learn and strive to adopt the steps of manifesting what we want to create and experience. We have epiphanies and wondrous Ah Ha moments. You learn to love yourself.
Stage 2. The Moment of Ascending After completing the preparations necessary, comes the actual moment of Ascending. The moment of Ascending occurs when we emit a vibrational harmonic chord, our pure signature vibration, which acts like a key opening a locked door to the next level of conscious awareness. You do not need to do anything to strike your vibrational signature chord. You arrive there, guided by your Higher Soul Self, through the preparation process and it will happen automatically. At the moment of Ascending the dormant layers of DNA in every cell of the body activate, a door between the subconscious and conscious mind opens up, and the veil of forgetfulness dissolves. This is a profound, intense experience. There is nothing subtle about it. It is mind blowing in every sense of the word. The moment of Ascending is not gradual, rather it takes place like a major switch is thrown on your entire being. Ascension will not occur without you noticing it. You will know without a doubt that something significant just happened, even if you're unsure at first what exactly you've just experienced because you've never experienced anything like it before. A majority of people will black out for a while when it occurs, while a smaller percentage will remain conscious. (Muscle testing, I get that 75 - 80% will experience a brief period of blacking out, and 20 - 25% will remain conscious when they Ascend to the next level of consciousness.) The moment of Ascending will take place during mediation or introspection when you have moved your conscious awareness out into the void.
Stage 3. Recalibration, Integration, and Discovery Once you've Ascended to the next level of conscious awareness, nothing will be experienced in the same way again. You are now consciously connected to the much larger data base of your Soul Self. You will begin a process of recalibration, integration, and discovery which will take a number of weeks or months. This stage is mind blowing, exhilarating, and euphoric beyond anything you can imagine. At the physical level, your brain and mind will be rewiring to connect up your awareness to your Soul Self. Everything is different and you'll embark on a process of discovering what those differences are. You'll perceive the interconnectedness of all things at a level never experienced before. You'll realise that the last vestiges of fear, doubt, struggle, and so perceived obstacles have vanished from your entire field. You'll perceive that everything is of benefit, and understand the true purpose of all that you've experienced in this lifetime. You'll discover that you have access to a vast treasure trove of information within your Soul Self and begin exploring the vast amount of inner Knowing now available to you. What you can sense, feel, and perceive expands exponentially. You vibrational awareness is enormous and your will soar. It is freedom beyond what you ever imagined possible. You will fall in love with being alive. It's pure bliss. Gradually as you recalibrate and integrate you'll arrive at a place of feeling a new normal where you can function in your daily life with ease and grace. The discovery of what you can now perceive consciously will continue to unfold.
One thing that is very important to point out is that Ascending is not the end of the process of evolution of the soul. You will not arrive at some totally blissed out state and then be done forever after. In Ascending, you graduate to the next level of conscious awareness and then once there, you'll begin the continuing process of learning and mastering the lessons of this new level. The evolution of the Soul continues on. It is an ever spiralling journey back to Source.
I hope this provides some clarity about the process of Ascension. Please feel free to post comments or ask questions. I'm here to assist. So many of you are ready and the moment of Ascending is imminent. I am excited beyond words for you! And I'm so looking forward to greeting you as you arrive at this next level of conscious awareness, so please announce when you arrive.
Blessings and much love to each of you!
