You may have heard the term Ascension. So what is Ascension? Ascension is a Spiritual Awakening. This can & will happen to many of us and at many different times.
Ascension involves the acceleration of vibrational energy and the expansion of awareness which creates a shift in consciousness. When a particular life system raises its vibrationary state from one energetic state of being/realm of existence, to another higher one, it is ascending. Simply put, it is like tuning into a particular radio station frequency-you can’t hear a particular radio station unless you’re tuned in to it’s particular frequency.
During the ascension process changes are occuring on all levels of your being. Ascension is a completely natural universal evolutionary process. As one shifts in vibrational frequency and as their awareness expands, symptoms are experienced on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. Your system is rebooting, being ‘tuned up’ or upgraded. Old patterns begin to fall away as one starts to embody much more light. It’s a really amazing process as long as you embrace it. I really wish I had known more about it when it began to happen to me.
During the Ascension process there is A LOT going on inside of you. You must be patient & gentle with yourself.
As one moves through the Ascension process there may be periods where the energy and symptoms become much more intense for several days or weeks at a time; then suddenly these symptoms may abruptly cease altogether for awhile, or symptoms may suddenly change or shift in intensity or frequency. You may experience feelings of desperation , sadness, loneliness and depression. You may even start feeling like you are losing your mind. The ascension experience is different for everyone and symptoms can vary according to one’s individual degree of awareness, personal vibration, spiritual practice and even individual purpose on the planet.
Below is a very comprehensive list of Ascension signs & symptoms. Let me know either in the comments or by email if you have experienced any, or many of these.

Most importantly: Trust the flow, trust the universe and trust the process. You are where you are meant to be. It’s a beautiful thing to be so open ,although sometimes it is scary. But the more you embrace it, the easier it becomes.
