It’s Aries Season..

Happy Birthday Aries!

Today the Sun leaves the passive and observant sign of Pisces and enters the passionate and courageous sign of Aries.  Aries is a fire sign and is represented by the Ram.  Rams like to move, and move fast- under the Aries influence, there is this feeling of needing to get things done and the drive to be more assertive.  Perfect after the past few months we have been having astrologically!

1Aries-InfoGraphic

Aries is a Cardinal sign-cardinal sign meaning that is an introductory sign to the new season upon us.  *There are four Cardinal signs, one for each element.  Aries is the cardinal sign for the element of fire.  ( Cancer for Water, Libra for Air, and we end with Capricorn for Earth).

Aries begins the Solar Season of Spring.  As a Cardinal Sign, Aries sets things in motion!  Aries is bold,  Aries is brave,  and Aries is a leader.  Most Aries tend to just fall into the role of initiating.  They like to get things done, and have hearts of gold although they are tough as steel and you don’t ever want to cross them!  They are RAMS after all! Ruled by the fiery planet of Mars, they are all about action and are very bold and determined.  Under the time of Aries, action is in store.  The ground shakes beneath us as we find our footing and charge towards our goals.  This meme below is perfect.

                                      In the Tarot, Aries Rules The Emperor 

emperor

The Emperor is all about controlling his environment, controlling his thoughts, and controlling his emotions.  (The Emperor can also , and often does represent a Woman in a tarot spread.)  *Positive traits of the Emperor are that he is a leader and can always be relied on.  He knows what needs to be done and does so with complete precision. Extremely detail oriented, he tends to be overly critical of even the slightest mess.  On the negative side, The Emperor (and Aries) can appear too bossy and domineering.  It’s “my way or the highway ” with this guy and there may not be a middle ground.  One thing is for certain: you know where you stand!  As a “4”, the Emperor represents foundations and stability.

The time of Aries is all about getting out of your head and moving.  It’s time to initiate all of the new.  Just like Aries, be bold , be brave and be kind.

Happy Monday! A Reading For The Week Ahead

Good Morning Friends,

I’ve done a read for the next seven days, using my Thoth Tarot Deck.

                                          From left to right we have:

IMG_1367

Art (Temperance in traditional Tarot), Defeat (Five of Swords in traditional tarot) and Princess of Cups (Page of Cups in traditional tarot)

For the week ahead it is important to keep your cool in the face of adversity.  Things seem hectic, and it may seem like circumstances beyond your control are messing with you-throwing everything out of balance.  You may feel like everyone is out to get you.  Take care: is this all in your mind?  Or is there really someone(s) you need to hash it out with?  The Sun goes into Aries tomorrow, making us all feel a little more active and perhaps aggressive (more on that tomorrow).

There will be a war going on inside of you as you will feel the need for great peace, but this is not possible without communication.  What was once seemingly in balance and in tune suddenly feels anything but, and personal clarity has come.  With that clarity will come the need for confrontation…but make it constructive!  It need not be all fire and strife.  At the end of it all there is love and forgiveness.  Answers are coming.

                                         Overall energy to wrap up the week :

angel33

Who do you need to forgive?  Is it forgiveness of yourself?  Of someone else?  Try and see other point(s) of view before communication can be made.  Ask yourself what these situations are trying to tell you, to teach you.  Remember: how you feel and how you react this week says more about you and your patterns.  Be easy on yourself, but don’t get stepped on.  Be assertive where you need to be, but keep your anger in check. Follow your instincts this week.

Full Moon In Earthy And Practical Virgo Today- The Energy For The Week Ahead

Good Morning Friends,

Happy Full Moon in Virgo!  This full moon occurs today at 10:53 AM EST.  Whenever the moon goes into Virgo, we tend to enter warrior mode!  It’s time to get aggressive with ourselves and our goals. Whatever we need to get done , suddenly the engines rev and we desire to get moving again!  This is not such a bad thing, except………

virgo full

This full moon sits opposite the Sun in spiritual and dreamy Pisces.  There are also still several planets in Pisces right now, so even though the intention is there to act and move forward, let’s not forget -Pisces likes to stay passive and Venus is retrograde as of eight days ago and still stirring s&^t up!  So expect to have a little anxiety as these two ways of being are at odds with one another!  

Virgo energy is quite calm , realistic , grounded and practical.  Virgo is an Earth sign after all.  However, because we are opposing Pisces at this time and Pisces is super-sensitive and slightly unrealistic, we may feel a bit of anxiety.  As we try to fight the flighty feelings of the Pisces way and get to the more organized and productive way of Virgo, we may experience an internal tug-of-war!  

Under this full moon, you will be feeling the need to address and take care of your physical body, your health habits.  What can you do to positively change the way you function, mind and body?  Want to start a new diet or exercise regime?  Nows the time.   Need to create healthy boundaries?  Again, you will be feeling this need stronger around this time. When we are under Virgo influence, taking care of our physical bodies becomes extremely important. We need to feel functional in all areas.  Virgo energy can be a bit obsessive, and at this time we will feel this way as well.  

There are still wounds that are coming up to the surface to be addressed and healed.  Full Moon energy tends to highlight these areas so take care.  The past two eclipses have been extremely intense for a lot of people.  If you have been affected then you need to do more work on yourself, more soul work.  See what you need to address and release.

There is a lot of clearing and purging of energy taking place at this time. The symptoms that many are experiencing are : cold, flu, headaches and even muscle aches as our emotional and physical bodies are clearing.  Try and stay centered and keep working on your goals and your souls expression.

                                          Reading for the week ahead:

IMG_1315

In light of the Full Moon, I have used my “Sun and Moon” tarot deck today.  From left to right we have The Magician, The Universe (World) and Nine of Swords.…wow. So we have two Major Arcana cards, which always means intensity and karma!  Along with a Swords (mental) card, expect to feel very obsessive over the upcoming week!

The Magician is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication which also happens to rule Virgo.  The Universe (World ) is ruled by Saturn which is the planet of Karma and often a teacher for us.  Followed by the nine of swords….all mental energy.

This week expect to feel obsessive over the wounds that you have at a soul level.  There will be the desire for communication and action, yet rather than acting, there is a lot of thinking and over-thinking.  Situations will come back around to test us, to test our boundaries or lack there-of.  We tend to be quite hard on ourselves this week as we blame ourselves for everything that we feel is going wrong , or has gone wrong.  Anxiety is bubbling under the surface, although we may not know why.   We only know what we feel and that is confused.  Falling asleep and staying asleep will become a bit of an issue this week as quieting our minds becomes a near impossible task!  This week is not particularly a week for action.  Try and get out of your head and plant both feet on the ground.  Make your plan.  Plot your course, and if you feel you can communicate to others in a loving and non-threatening way, than do so.

Intuitive Read For Venus Retrograde- What The Energy Of The Next Six Weeks Will Encompass

Another Week & Another Message,

First off, I’d like to share something that I’ve been informed of as of this past friday. To the right of this blog page here you will see an “award badge”.  I was notified that my blog was chosen as a Top 75 Tarot Blog On The Web!  Considering there’s a TON of them, I thought this was kind of cool :) and just wanted to share.

Onto other things….if you did not read the post on Venus Retrograde, please stop and scroll back one post and do so now.

As I was writing the Venus post I felt compelled to stop and do a card pull and an interpretation for this time period coming up.  I’ve pulled the Eight of Swords from the Golden Tarot and from the Angel Romance deck, I pulled “Freedom”.  Naturally as synchronicity would have it, these cards express very similar messages to each other and both fit perfectly with what this Venus Retrograde is all about.

IMG_1252

For this next six-week period the energy we will be experiencing is all about freedom.  Yes, freedom.  Freeing ourselves from that which we feel bound to, stuck. This is about connections and limitations that need to be released in regards to people, places and things.  What are you hanging on to that is no longer feeling good? A lot of the time these are self-imposed “prisons” and as this tarot card is Swords energy (mental) this is all about freeing yourself from you and from the confines of your mind. 

Look at the above image.  Yes the woman is bound and blindfolded, but if you look closely you will see the ropes are loose enough to free herself from. Once she frees herself she is able to take the blindfold off.   That’s right- a lot of the limitations we feel or we think that we are facing are actually placed there by us, and at any time we can choose to free ourselves.  At the very least, we can certainly loosen the binds that tie us.

The reality is, we create or co-create our own “prison”.  We write our own stories and as hard as it may seem we can always redirect our energy to present to us a different outcome.  We can free ourselves from this madness- but first we truly need to look inside as to why things are the way that they are. What have we done to contribute to our current circumstances? This is all relating to once again, love and money.  The relationships we have with both- and how we handle (or do not handle)  situations regarding both areas.

Remember that everyone will be feeling these energies regardless of if they are choosing to acknowledge it or not.  It’s time to really go within and ask yourself some tough questions.  Check in with yourself and make sure you are living in your own truth, whatever that may look and feel like.  Everyone is doing this at this time and on some level.

You can always free yourself one way or another.  It’s time to take back your power and take back control over your own life.  If you are not liking your current story than it’s time to re-write the script.  The power is yours over these next few weeks…..

Love & Light,

Lisa

Venus Is Retrograde As Of Today 3/4- What This Means And How To Work With It

Happy Saturday!

I wanted to mention that the planet Venus is officially stationed retrograde (backwards) from today 3/4-4/17. This happens once every nineteen (19) months. During this six-week period it is considered to be a very fated time.  Because this time around Venus is not making any major planetary aspects, it actually can be a very lucky time!  The fixed star Alpheratz is the only planetary influence and it is considered to be very lucky in astrology. Basically, any tough aspects surrounding a “normal” retrograde will be softened under this influence- phew!  Venus is the Goddess of love and beauty, after all.

venus in astrology

The planet Venus rules a lot of things, but it’s mainly about love and money.  Particularly at this time, these are the two areas that will be under scrutiny for everyone. You may notice that during this time former situations/people may come back into your life , and money issues may arise to be dealt with.  How do you spend your free time?  How do you spend (or not spend) your money? Who do you spend most of your time with and are you truly happy?  Who and how do you love and is that really working for you?  These are all major questions that will be at the forefront during this six- week period as Venus makes her backwards trek.

As I mentioned above, this is a fated period. Giving and receiving love can be more difficult as you navigate the confines of your own heart and soul.  Old friends or lovers may come back into the picture to help you sort out karmic issues you may have surrounding love and abundance.  The way that you recognize and deal with these topics will most definitely cause you to pause and think.

Relationships started at this time may have a very magical quality to them, and will likely serve some sort of deep purpose.  (This applies to both friendships and love relationships). Just make sure you are not being hasty,  follow your heart but make sure you take your head with you!  This is a time of introspection and reassessment.  Whomever or whatever you are interested in during this time will bring you joy and pleasure if handled properly. Destiny is at work here!  Soul connections can come seemingly out of nowhere. 

Venus does not always have to be about relationships with others, this also speaks about the most major relationship you have- which is relationship to yourself!  First and foremost make sure you are giving yourself the love and affection you deserve!  You can use this time to improve how you feel about yourself, how to love yourself more.  Think about what makes you happy, what you love to do, what makes your soul shine.  Use this time to reflect on patterns you have regarding love and money.  Find the reason(s) for issues in current or past relationships.  Work through them.  This is all Venus Retrograde.

What Really, Is Spirituality?

Spirituality is about being true to your spirit.  Period.  It doesn’t matter what that looks like or feels like to anyone else but you.

A lot of people think that being spiritual means never being in a bad mood, never disliking someone or something, always being “zen”.  Well, that’s BS, simply put.  I saw a quote one time that sums me up (and many of you as well, I’m sure) – ” I am the most zen and the most easily agitated girl you will ever meet”.  Such truth to that!

Being spiritual is about honoring your soul, your needs and your spirit.  It does not matter what that looks like to anyone else, if you do or do not do yoga, if you meditate or not, what religion you follow (if any).  None of that matters. What matters is what that feels like for you.  Always be true to yourself , and doors will open even if some must close first.

1012042_405448232933574_739671964_n

It’s important to note that your soul wants experiences both good and not so good, sometimes downright bad, in order to attract to your physical self for the learning and experience it brings. Sometimes negativity will enter our space in order to teach us, to heal us, to protect us and to help us grow. As I always say, without pain there is no growth.  

We are all spiritual beings.  We are all stardust really, just energy.  We are souls and our bodies are the vehicles.  Every day we connect with others , with their energy.  Sometimes this feels uplifting and sometimes it feels draining.  Pay attention to these feelings and sensations as they hold a key to a piece of your soul.  That which we see in another will always reflect back to us a part of ourselves, good or bad.  When you feel a connection to someone or something, honor it as this to is brought to you for learning.  Perhaps this person or place holds a missing link for you to moving forward.  On the other hand, when you feel particularly drained by a person or a situation do not ignore this.  Take back your power and do not allow these people/situations to have so much power over you.  Look inside to see what this is trying to tell you.

As always, take good care of yourself as we are in very sensitive times.

Also important to note that planet Venus goes retrograde (backwards) on 3/4-4/17.  It’s a very important time.  This is going to cause everyone to examine their most intimate relationships very closely.  More about that later this week……

Love  & Light,

Lisa

 

 

It’s A Solar Eclipse/New Moon In Pisces – With A Message For The Week Ahead

Happy Sunday My Friends,

We may our find ourselves shaking our heads in disbelief over the upcoming weeks, and we have likely felt this way for the past several weeks.  We have been under eclipse influence for quite a bit- and believe me, it affects everyone!  The energy is intense!  Expect the unexpected now more than ever.  The universe will be throwing us all some cosmic curveballs!

pisces-eclipse-232x300

This Solar Eclipse /New Moon today falls in the sign of Pisces, the psychic dreamer.   Pisces is all about the inner world and spirituality, our intuition and our hopes and fears. There is a lot of intensity at this time, so expect the unexpected.  As this Solar Eclipse is about the inner world being shaken up, don’t necasarily expect a huge epiphany in your outer world although that can happen as well.  It can be subtle internally, but you can expect some massive shifts to follow.  Remember- our higher self, our guides and our angels only want us to grow and move towards our soul purpose so when we resist growth and change, the universe will typically step in and show us who’s boss. Also remember that there is always divine order to the madness so stay positive!

   I’ve done an Angel Tarot card for the week ahead, with a message for all

IMG_1222

Isn’t that a beautiful looking card?  This card is from the Doreen Virtue Guardian Angel Tarot- currently my deck of choice.  This card is number “0”- in traditional tarot this is knows as The Fool.  

As this card is a Major Arcana card, expect some karmic situations to either release and close themselves out this week, or karmic rebounds can and will occur! Something/someone from the past will come back out of the blue and zap you back to a place that you long had forgotten- so you thought!  The universe has other plans for you, and it’s time to learn the lesson and close the chapter once and for all. You cannot move forward if you keep on looking backwards is the message for this week.  Again, I’m sorry to be a broken record but expect the unexpected at this time.  The Fool is also ruled by the planet Uranus, which is all about unexpected change that catapults us to a different place!  We might not end up where we want to be- but rest assured, it’s where we need to be.  This card is oh-so-fitting for the time of a Solar Eclipse right?

It is a time for beautiful beginnings as we release what no longer serves us. Remember- this can be at the soul level so perhaps it’s an addiction that you have or a behavior you wish to release.  Let it all go- it’s time.

Keep going full steam ahead with your plans, and know that the universe is truly supporting new beginnings and new adventures.  This beginning may even feel forced upon some, but necessary at the same time.  Keep your sense of humor.  Stay in your light.  Most importantly- remember that we are in some very sensitive times energetically, and if you are particularly empathic, you will be feeling a lot of anxiety as you are picking up the energy of the collective.  Make sure you are taking good care of yourself.

Don’t forget to set your intentions and manifest under this powerful Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Pisces!

Happy Pisces Season!

Pisces season is from 2/19-3/20

As of yesterday 2/19,  the Sun officially left it’s perch in the sign of curious and detached Aquarius, and entered the sign of the dreamy and sensitive Pisces.  We go from the mental plane to the emotional plane with this shift as we leave the element of Air (mental) and shift into the element of Water (emotional).

As Pisces is the 12th and final sign in the zodiac wheel, it marks the end of a cycle- right before the spring equinox.   We wrap up loose ends and release that which no longer serves us and our growth during this time.  We set expectations and lay down plans for the upcoming cycle.  Expect to feel more emotional and ready for change.

pisces0911

Pisces is a Water Sign and as such, people born under the time of Pisces are typically quite sensitive and impressionable.  (This also holds true for those that are Pisces rising, and/or Pisces Moon.)  Pisces are the dreamers of the zodiac and are typically quite artistic and intuitive, empathetic and compassionate, tender hearted and super-sensitive. Very spiritual and truly wanting to make the world a better place.   These are all positive Piscean traits.

The less positive side of Pisces is the tendency to escape reality when the going gets tough, addictive tendencies towards destructive habits (alcohol/drugs), and not seeing the forest through the trees!  Pisces can be very overly sensitive and extremely indecisive. 

Pisces is ruled by the planet Neptune, which is the planet of illusion and boundaries and rules the 12th house of the subconscious in ones birth chart. Pisces can often see things/people/situations through the lens of rose colored glasses, and when they come down to reality it’s often very hurtful.  Pisces are also romantic and love-love.  (If you are a Pisces and you feel a lot of this does not describe you, that’s because you must take into account your rising sign and moon).

The Tarot Card that rules Pisces is the Moon

moon

Emotional and changeable, along with intuitive awareness and intense psychic impressions, the Moon rules Pisces.  As the moon is a little wild and unpredictable changing with the tides, so are Pisces!  Pisces can be verrryyy moody due to their extreme sensitivity.  (Trust me my Moon is in the sign of Pisces so I speak from experience). If you expect them to be happy about something, they may surprise you and burst into tears.  If you expect them to be upset about something, they may look at you and laugh uncontrollably.  That is Pisces.  (I do love Pisces energy though- most Pisces I know feel super safe and calming.)   

Some of the crystals that represent Pisces are Amethyst (which is also the birthstone for February), bloodstone, Jade, aquamarine (March birthstone) and one of my favorites, Nuumi.

During the time of Pisces AND with the fact that we have a SOLAR ECLIPSE /NEW MOON in Pisces on the 26th of this month, we can expect to feel a heightened sense of awareness along with extreme sensitivity.  This time allows us to naturally have a psychic and more compassionate view of the world.  At this time it is very important to listen to your intuition as it will be loud and trying to get your attention.  Be careful though that you do not deceive yourself in the process.  Things are not always as they seem and at this time you have to look underneath the layers of your emotions to get to the crux of what is really going on. We always know somewhere inside us what the best road to take will be, but do we listen? 

*Sidenote- as I mentioned in last weeks blog, this solar eclipse/new moon on the 26th is quite a powerful one.  It will take place at 7:10 AM EST and the energy is most intense up to eight (8) hours of the Solar Eclipse time and is very intense so when manifesting please keep your intentions as clear and pure as possible!  You may get just what you wish for and then some, so manifest wisely!  Stay in your light.

Stay strong and instead of reacting- try and understand!  Pisces is the one sign of the zodiac that can empathize with anyone, so during this time stay compassionate for yourself and for others.  We are all doing the best we can under these intense and emotionally charged times!

Let’s Talk About February And The Sensitive Times We Are In! Lunar Eclipse AND Solar Eclipse Back To Back!

Good Morning Friends,

You may or may not have noticed but I did not put out a post for the Lunar Eclipse in Leo that passed through on 2/10.  I just could not muster up the energy and the mental capacity to sit down and type out my thoughts.  In my own personal chart, this eclipse is hitting sensitive points in my 4th house (home), my North Node (life purpose) and my 10th house (career), so I have a lot of energy swirling around in these areas.  It has been a crazy couple of weeks on my end to say the least (it’s all good though)  and I have been trying to take it easier than normal (well, I think I have but I’m still not really taking it easy). 😉

Sidenote: if you are interested in looking at your personal chart and how these Eclipses may or may not impact you, reach out to me and I will give you the info of some of my favorite astrologers to work with!  I do know a LOT of astrology and am constantly learning and growing in this area, but I’m no expert!

IMG_1102

The Lunar Eclipse we experienced back on 2/10 was in the sign of bold and courageous Leo. (Photo I took to the right).  Leo has a big, passionate heart and also, a big, fiery temper!  When you get to close to the fire well-you can get burned!  That’s how this last eclipse was likely experienced for most people.  A true rollercoaster of emotion(s), a feeling that the time is ripe to GO!  But where to? That’s for your soul to guide you towards.  

If at this time you feel like you are floating through life, well this month will DEFINITELY highlight the areas that could stand some improvement.  You will not be able to avoid the clean-up this time around.  Overall you will feel VERY energetic and ready for action OR  lethargic and confused, perhaps conflicted and defeated.  These were the energies surrounding this past Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon.  Relationships of all kinds tend to really be a focus under Eclipse energy, and as it’s a very sensitive time especially in between Eclipses (where we are right now) – we should all be extra sensitive to others and to ourselves.  As issues come up, make sure to take the time to breathe before reacting. Very important as the tendency to overreact is high right now! 

new-moon-piscesc-total-solar-eclipse-300x300

Our next Eclipse happens on 2/26 in the watery and dreamy sign of Pisces.  Solar Eclipses are even more intense and more powerful than Lunar Eclipses in the way that, the Raja-Tama (which is an Indian term for state of mind) is most definitely increased during a Solar Eclipse. Long story short: I give this to you from the spiritual perspective as opposed to the scientific explanation. Scientifically speaking the Solar (Sun) Eclipse is much more impactful than the Lunar (Moon) Eclipse is.  The fact that these two are back to back like this?  Well, think about that.  Major energy storm!

From the spiritual perspective those with a very heightened “sixth-sense” will be quite prone to feeling the changes under the influence of both Eclipses and the in between time (so basically now).   You may feel edgy, anxious, uncomfortable, indecisive, lost and confused.  On the flip side you may find that you feel clarity and you are ready to take action.  If you are feeling ready to take action, I advise you to wait until at least 2/28 for astrological reasons!  You will feel more clear as the energy of the New Moon in Pisces which is a Solar Eclipse, begins to clear away after the 26th.

With this upcoming Solar Eclipse in Pisces on 2/26- most will feel extra sensitive and extra tuned in.  Your awareness and inner knowing will be amplified so this is definitely time to try and stay as clear and pure as possible.  Since Pisces is ruled by Neptune which is the planet of illusion, deception and boundaries, you will want to stay in a healthy spiritual space.  The tendency to see everything through rose colored glasses is aroused and you don’t want to hit the ground HARD when the illusions are broken.  Remember: eclipses can and often will bring in the unexpected!

Am I telling you to hide out?  No.  But I am telling you to keep a close watch on your feelings at this time and stay vigilant.  Take stock and take pride in all that you have accomplished but do not get arrogant.  Eclipses are a time of major power, and also major changes that are sometimes very unexpected and often needed.  It’s best to not get to comfortable.  Also if you or others have been actively involved in shady or less than stellar happenings, under Eclipse time it’s way more likely to come out into the light.  Again, keep your intentions and motivations as pure as possible and stay in your light and all will be well.

Let’s also be grateful that the upcoming Solar Eclipse is not happening during Mercury Retrograde- silver lining! 😉 macaulay

*It is also important to note that Eclipses operate much differently than the average Full/New Moons,  therefore it is wise to not partake in any manifestations.  I  do not charge my crystals under this moon energy either. While you certainly can, why would you want to?  The energy is crazzyy!

Are You Waking Up? A.K.A- Ascending?

Hi Friends!

As we enter the Age of Aquarius, there is a noticeable shift happening.  More and more of the collective are “waking up”- or experiencing the spiritual term for this, which is referred to as “Ascension”.   By formal definition, Ascension is: the act of rising to an important position or a higher level.  This is where we experience an awakening of the soul.  In a more descriptive way, let’s talk about the process as I am sure many of you reading this have likely begun to experience this phenomenon.

Disclaimer: make sure your physical  health is ok before you chalk anything up to ascension.  A lot of these symptoms of “waking up” can mimic medical conditions.  Make sure to get yourself checked out before you decide your symptoms are in fact , ascension related.  This is not in lieu of medical advice or attention.

ascension74_01

As I stated in the first paragraph, ascension is all about getting to a higher level.  When we ascend this is exactly what happens but on a subconscious and intuitive level. We begin to feel “weird” or “off” as our frequency changes, and we begin “tune in” to the energies around us in a much different way.  We don’t know exactly what is going on, and it can be really freaky!  You will feel a longing for a deeper purpose, you will feel connected in a way you have not experienced before.

You will begin to look at everything differently, and truly start questioning reality and your existence.  But I”m here to tell you that it is ok, and you should embrace the process as you are becoming more in tune with a higher realm.  More in touch with your higher self, your soul.

After each Reiki Attunement (certification) I have received, my vibration would rise and I would feel more connected to spirit,  and my head would buzz for days.  I would feel like I was on another planet basically, and it’s difficult to be in the the 3D “real” world.  Yes, that may sound crazy, but that’s the only way I can describe it.  When you ascend “the old way” just doesn’t feel right anymore.  My psychic impressions go off the charts, and I need to sometimes pull back and rest.  It’s exhausting!

Holy Shift

When we ascend, our senses sharpen and heighten.  Your intuitive impressions come faster and can startle you, especially if this has never happened to you before. You may have an increased sense of taste, smell or both.  Foods that you used to love you now might not be able to stomach.  Your digestive tract becomes more sensitive, you begin to have much more vivid dreams, and you become way more sensitive in general. Physical sensations can begin and make you start to question your sanity.  You may get nauseous out of nowhere, experience headaches and sporadic hot flashes followed by the shivers.  Your perception and vision will change – you will see colors, shapes and orbs that appear and disappear just as quickly.  You may also feel random pressure in your head, your sinuses, and it can shift quickly from one spot to another.

In 2010 I experienced a major bout of Ascension, and for me I would get awful migraines about once a week!  I would see flashes of light, and the headache would start. I also experienced tingling sensations in my extremities.  (This tingling still happens). Face, arms and feet.  This sent me to the doctor naturally thinking the worst, but intuitively I knew I was fine.  Your ears may pop,buzz and/or vibrate. You may see flashes and orbs out of the corners of your eyes,  smell things that aren’t there, the list goes on and on. (All of the above are what I experienced, but everyone is different).

Anxiety is also a common trait of the ascension process.  Your heart may palpitate or flutter.  It may race and seem “irregular”.  Again, this is your heart chakra opening up! (Make sure you check this out to rule out anything medical first). Your scalp may itch or tingle.  Your crown chakra is opening up, getting ready to receive information from a higher source.  As all of your chakras begin to open up and expand, these physical sensations may begin and progress rapidly.  ( If it is too much for you, just ask spirit to kindly slow the process down as it’s too much at once. I do this and it works).

SO what starts the Ascension process?  Good question.  Typically, a major life change will precede a major spiritual shifting period.  You lose your job, you experience the death of someone very close to you, you yourself have a near death experience, you get divorced, move across country, etc.  You get the idea.  It does not always have to be this way, but usually it is.  When this happens you may feel all alone.  Lost, scared and/or confused, you subconsciously call on your higher self to step in and guide you.  Then you begin to ascend…..(remember , you don’t know this is happening on a three-dimensional  level!)  You begin to question and experience things on a different and deeper level.  You lose friends, you gain friends.  Some think you have gone crazy…who cares??  The S&*T has to happen in order for the shift to happen- and that’s the way it is.   Just be you and take good care of yourself.  It’s the only way!  Eat well, get more rest, honor your body and your soul.  If you find yourself wanting to be in solitude most of the time, that’s perfectly normal as well.  It’s all a part of the process and should be honored .

Your sleeping patterns and habits will likely change during this shift as well.  Perhaps you were always someone who needed a full ten-hours of sleep and yet now you can get by on four or five.  Or it could go the opposite way- where you get plenty of sleep yet you still are exhausted. Insomnia is a part of this as well.  Sounds joyful, doesn’t it ? 😉  Actually, it is pretty damn cool when you think about the fact that you are ready to go deeper towards your purpose, to journey deep into your soul.

The positives about this process feel and are great as well, once the physical symptoms pass. (Remember, not everyone will experience all or any of the physical symptoms).  The positive experiences and feelings you may experience throughout this process are as follows

-You will feel have an overwhelming feeling of just letting things be, rather than trying to force or coerce any issue or circumstance in your life

-You may find yourself smiling for no reason, and quite often

-Feeling a sense of connection with others and with nature that you might not have ever experienced before, truly understanding that everything and everyone are all connected

-Overwhelming and sporadic feelings of gratitude and appreciation

-Learning to enjoy each moment becomes a focus, being and staying present

-A total loss of interest in conflict.  You just let everyone be and want to just be as well.  A feeling of total acceptance

-A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others

-A loss of interest in judging others and a loss on interest in judging yourself

-Gaining the ability to love without expecting anything in return-unconditional love

Throughout this awakening process, stay strong and stay true- find others who share your interests and your passions.  Never lose sight of who you truly are. You are magnificent and unique, remember that!
