Ascension means ‘rising up’. Spiritual ascension is about humans raising their energy, vibration and consciousness to higher levels in order to live their greatest life, to live their soul’s truth. To live in states of more joy, love, equanimity, faith and trust, while being connected to Source energy.
3D, 4D, 5D states of consciousness
Spiritual ascension brings ‘the unveiling’ – which is when people begin to see there is more to life than we see in our 3D world. We are more than just flesh and bone, we are infinite beings of light and energy at our very core, and connected to universal energy and source. A creative force runs through us and we originate from it.
We live in a 3D world here on Earth. We see life as physical. We are physical beings, in a physical world. separate from one another. We are limited to our 5 physical senses. We have limited knowledge and feel limited by our bodies as to what we can achieve. Things are black and white, right and wrong. We have a job, we have a car, and what we see in front of us is what exists.
Living in 4D
As we ascend to 4D we start to realize we are more than just our bodies, we are all made of energy and are all connected to each other. We begin to see the deeper meaning of life, there is more than meets the eye. We realize the importance of spiritual development, meditating, or finding a path to help us understand more about life.
We want to discover our passions and purpose. We have more tolerance and understanding for others. We activate our 6th sense – our intuition.
Living in 5D
When we ascend to 5D, we access the deeper truth of who we are and how the universe really works. We know at our core we are all one, there is no duality. We let go of judgment. We are dedicated to our spiritual growth, we find meaning in all, and we feel continuous states of connection to others, love, and equanimity – we access our soul energy and also can communicate with angelic beings, spiritual guides, light beings, etc.
These are different dimensional states of consciousness we can access while living on Earth (other higher dimensions are said to be available elsewhere in the universe). We are all in different states, sometimes moving up and down (many are moving in and out of 3D and 4D. Once you reach 5D it is unlikely you will go back to 3D).
Ascending to higher dimensions is caused by an inner shift – as we develop spiritually we raise our consciousness from 3D to 4D and then 5D.
Ascension for humans and the planet
When we embark on a spiritual path, we slowly begin our individual process of ascension. But spiritual ascension is happening on a planetary level as well. Ancient civilizations and indigenous tribes have spoken about this for millennia.
Astrologically we can see ascension happening too. The earth’s location moves through the universe through different astrological signs. We are currently living in the age of Pisces and have begun moving into the age of Aquarius. Astrological ages last around 2160 years and so we are beginning to enter the new Aquarian age.
The traits of Aquarius include knowledge and information and are thought to bring a rising in consciousness and new beginnings. We can see this has started already. With the dawn of the internet, we have access to more information and access to truth. which shifts our consciousness. A change for humanity that will take place over time and has begun already.
So not only is humanity ascending, but the planet is too. A shift in energy and consciousness is happening to everyone.
Divine Feminine Rising
It is also said that the leap into the Golden age of Aquarius brings the return of the Divine Feminine. In our history, from the dawn of millennia, tribes and social groups have honoured both males and females, gods and goddesses equally. This Divine Feminine energy is rising up once more and entering the world, bringing balance to male and female, yin and yang.
So our collective consciousness is rising too. In the media and news, it may not seem this way as we see awful things happening around the world. But what we are seeing is the breakdown of the old, from which the new will rise (for example the MeToo movement has revealed the abuse of male power and the abuse of too much extreme female power. This forces the world to change).
Symptoms and experiences of spiritual ascension
As we start to vibrate higher in our energy, as we raise our frequency and light and live from our truth, we can experience some symptoms.
These include headaches, insomnia, dizziness and fatigue, ears ringing, becoming allergic to chemicals and toxins that previously didn’t bother you, and developing sensitivities and intolerances to certain foods such as dairy, caffeine, and alcohol.
Relationships can fall away that do not serve us, and we end up leaving jobs that were not in alignment with our purpose. We may end up moving home or location.
We can go through ‘The Dark Night of the Soul’ – a breakdown of some sort, from which the phoenix rises from the ashes and we become aligned with our soul. This is because the energy and frequency of your body are rising, so you cannot live out of alignment with your soul’s truth.
This can feel hard but it is important to remember THIS IS A GIFT AND AN ESSENTIAL PART OF LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE POSSIBLE.
It’s not always an easy process to go through, but once you are on this path, you know there is nowhere else you want to be. This is the path you want to be on and stay on. This is your truth.
