(continued from Part 2 http://goldenageofgaia.com/2013/02/ascension-symptoms-or-what-is-ha....)
• You don’t feel like doing anything.
You are in a rest period, ‘rebooting’. Your body knows what it needs. During this time you may feel as though you have lost your passion and joy and don’t know what in the world you want to do with your life and don’t really care! This phase occurs when we are realigning.
At higher levels much is realigning as well. Things are being put into position so that all will be ready when you move forward again. In addition, when we begin reaching the higher realms, doing and making things happen becomes obsolete as the New energies support the feminine of basking, receiving, creating, self-care and nurturing.
Ask the Universe to bring you what you want while you cannot do it for yourself. And know that you are always being taken care of during the ascension process, even if it does not feel like it at times.
Those in the physical going through this process are very highly revered by all the cosmos. We are most certainly being watched over.
• A wanting to go Home, as if everything is OVER and you don’t belong here anymore.
As we’re returning to Source, everything is over. (But many of us are staying to experience and create the New World.) Also, our old plans for coming have been completed.
We are basically done with our prior incarnation that involved raising the frequency of the planet with a goal of reaching critical mass. We achieved a lot of this through transmuting the darker and denser energies through ourselves. Now we don’t have to do that anymore and may feel like we simply want out of here and away from that experience.
What is coming next is simply divine and does not remotely resemble the first phase.
• A sudden disappearance of friends, activities, habits, jobs and residences.
One of the most basic and prevalent experiences in the higher realms invloves the Law of Attraction. Like energies always attract like and similar energies. This relates to the dimensional hierarchies as well. We will always be matched with what and how we are vibrating.
As we go higher and higher, this phenomenon becomes much more magnified and also becomes one of the basic cores of our reality and existence. Through the ascension process we evolving beyond what we used to be, and therefore the people and surroundings that no longer match our vibration simply leave our space.
This can sometimes occur rather dramatically or at times through a simple desire resulting from the inability to relate to them like we used to. When an energy shift occurs, it can feel as though a bomb has been dropped and everything in our world has been scattered from here to there.
Eventually we realign with the New. When the New arrives, you will feel so-o-o-o much better!
• You absolutely cannot do certain things anymore. When you try to do your usual routine and activities, it feels downright awful.
Same as above. You’re no longer a fit and it’s time to move on to a much higher vibrating way of living, being, and creating.
• Your plans suddenly change in mid-stream and go in a completely different direction.
When this occurs, your soul is balancing out your energy. It usually feels great in this new direction, as your soul knows more than you do! Your soul is breaking your rut choices and vibration. Our souls always know more than we do.
During January of 2006, we experienced what I dubbed “ascension shock.” At higher levels we had a specific plan and timeline. If we were a bit behind, we ended up experiencing our pre-plan whether we were ready or not. This placed us in sudden and immediate new circumstances so that we would be poised for what we needed to do next.
• Waking at night between 2 and 4 a.m.
Much is going on in your dream state. You can’t be there for long lengths of time and need a break. This is also the ‘cleansing and releasing’ hour.
[KS: Steve Rother has referred to this phenomenon as “the 3:00 AM club” (7) due to the high numbers of people reporting that they are or have been waking at exactly 3 am. He also notes, as did Seth, that sleeping patterns in general will be changing from one long sleep period to 3 hours of sleep, then 2 hours of wakefulness, followed by 2 or 3 more hours of sleep.
Steve adds: “When we awaken in the middle of the night we’re not only in enhanced awareness, but we’re also in an enhanced state of creation. In this state, our ability to transform our thoughts into reality is greatly increased. The challenge is to become conscious of what we are thinking about, and therefore what we are creating. Instead many simply allow their thoughts to flow from them by default, thereby creating realities that are not really to their liking.” (8)
Meaning .. if you worry about not being able to sleep, and worry during this period that you are going to be tired in the morning because you can’t get enough rest, you’ll only be adding to the likelihood that you are going to be tired in the morning.
A much more useful plan is to enjoy the enhanced creativity and tell yourself instead that you’re going to be invigorated and energized by this period of heightened awareness and creativity. Then be amazed at the result!]
• Heightened sensitivities to your surroundings.
Crowds, noise, foods, TV, other human voices and various other stimulations are barely tolerable. You also overwhelm very easily and become easily overstimulated. You are tuning up. Know that this will eventually pass.
[KS: This was a prolonged and extremely difficult period for me to weather, exacerbated by not knowing why I was feeling this way. Crowds were intolerable for me, as were bright lights and loud noises of any kind. I have always been less tolerant of this type of external stimulus than most, but I was totally unprepared for just how sensitive I would become.
As I have travelled the path, though, this behavior has cleared to such a degree that I am far more tolerant of external stimuli than before the ascension symptoms began. It does get better!]
• You have created a situation that seems like your worst nightmare, with many ‘worst nightmare’ aspects to it.
Your soul is guiding you into ‘stretching’ into aspects of yourself where you were lacking, or into ‘toning down’ aspects where you had an overabundance. Your energy is just balancing itself.
Finding your way to peace through this situation is the test you have set up for yourself.
This is your journey, and your soul would not have set it up if you weren’t ready. You are the one who finds your way out and you will. Looking back, you will have gratitude for the experience and be a different person.
• Humming and/or ringing in the ears.
This is not Tinnitus, though it feels like it might be.
“The other thing that will be happening very soon as a result of all the things that you are moving through, is that your ears will take another step into change. Some of you will hear ringing that will go on and on and on and on. Take it as a vibrational imprint for it simply means that you are vibrating in harmonics with a new alternate reality which is very close to yours.” (9)
From Archangel Michael
“Oh, do not think that you cannot hear the sound of your collective or of your planet! You are always hearing the sound of the universe, that high-pitched ringing in your ears.” (10)
Steve Beckow devoted an entire article to these humming and ringing sensations noting:
“So if you’re hearing the blessed sound of Aum as a ringing in your ears, rejoice. Welcome it. Talk to it. Say, ‘Hello, Mother. What are your wishes for me today?’ or ‘What are you bringing me today?’ Listen to it and allow it to grow within your consciousness. Hearing the sound of the universal motor is a great blessing indeed.” (11)
Denise LeFay lists a few symptoms not previously covered (12):
repeated intense inner body heat “hot flashes”, hands and/or bottoms of feet extremely hot, spine, back, head, entire body heat
extreme sweating with every Kundalini hot flash
repeated cold flashes, inner body cold spots, certain chakra areas turn cold for periods
inner body electrical-like vibrations, buzzing, inner shaking, slowly moving inner energy vibrations
extra electricity in your body, constantly getting zapped when you touch things
muscle spasms, twitching, itching, strange sensations on or under the skin, nerve sensitivity
nightmares, archetypal dreams, lucid dreams
repeatedly coming awake at specific times of the night-1:11, 3:00, 3:33, 4:44, 5:55 AM etc.
About these symptoms Denise commented:
“Again, fear not because it’s a positive sign of our compressed evolution, our expanding consciousness and all the positive things that naturally comes with it.” (13)
So what does all this mean? Simply that we all evolving, and doing so at unprecedented rates. These changes are interpreted by our physical senses and can have the appearance of coming out of nowhere for no reason. There will be commonalities and also differences in how these changes are interpreted by our physical senses.
The difficulty arises because we are so tuned, so programmed, that whenever anything out of the ordinary occurs in our body, we worry about it. When we notice something out of the ordinary we have a learned drive to know what it is, why it is, and how to be rid of it so that we can get on to being “normal” again. What we’re beginning to realize is that even what constitutes normal is changing. Indeed there may never be a “normal” again.
But perhaps the most important thing to remember from all of this information is to stay out of fear. If what you are experiencing is frightening, or you suspect in any way that you require medical attention by all means seek medical help.
At the very least you may find out that there is nothing wrong and/or that nothing was found, and that should reduce the fear considerably. Reducing the fear is all important.
I hope you will take solace from this comment from Saul:
“At present you are all undergoing a massive expansion and strengthening of your individual energy fields to prepare you for your return to Reality. Spending time in the illusion has enormously weakened you, a bit like becoming sick and bedridden, where you have needed to rebuild your health and strength before being able to operate normally once more. You have become unbalanced, inharmonious, out of tune, and are now going through a period of what can only be described as expert restoration and renewal, after years of inappropriate storage, or even thoughtless abuse.
“Those of you who are experiencing constant tiredness, exhaustion, or energy depletion are at the forefront of the restoration and renewal program. It is very draining and depressing for you as you struggle with the problems of making even the most simple decisions in your daily lives, things that were previously a breeze. Know that you are greatly honored, intensely supported, and dearly loved, and that this ongoing sensation of being completely alone as you force yourselves to maintain your optimism, and discount and disregard your doubts and anxieties, is akin to that very deep dark period before the dawn.” (14)
