The ascension or spiritual awakening is the shift we are all making on our path home to Source—oneness. We are leaving the condition of duality and separation in which ego reigns over our thoughts, emotions, and actions. We are bringing our ego/psyche into alignment with love.
Symptoms—the physical and emotional responses we have to this process—may come in the form of sickness, body aches and pains, financial loss, emotional despair, or an opening of supernatural abilities. Thankfully, the energy to heal the symptoms is also available. To share healing energy and reconnect you to the Sacred Heart is one of the purposes of my ministry. The Sacred Heart is the Garden of Eden where there is oneness with God and love for all of creation.
Healing is a journey that we all must walk on our way back to Source from whence we came and are still a part of. Therefore, disease, sickness, and illness are not signs of weakness; they can be signs that the body is moving toward becoming a multidimensional structure that can move beyond this 3-D carbon-based existence. Where one person sees an illness as a curse or failure, another person sees it as a learning device or cleansing tool that reminds us of our power to create whatever we want. There are many causes for illness. Perhaps something from a past life has blocked an energy center; perhaps it represents some wound in this lifetime residing in your cellular memory that is being brought to your attention so it can be healed.
Some of the symptoms we are now experiencing are related to the ascension process. We are working through karma; cleansing our minds, emotions, and bodies; and re-patterning our habits as we move forward on our path to oneness. Listening to our higher self, we are attempting to embody master presence in this physical body.
Connecting with the inner self and the Sacred Heart is a wonderful way to reduce ascension symptoms while finding a great amount of peace even though the world around us—even our own body—seems to be out of control. Disease or illness comes to us as a message. Listen to what your body and intuition have to say.
As you ascend, you may have noticed that your likes and dislikes are changing. Situations and even people that you once enjoyed no longer appeal to you. You are giving up habits that you thought impossible to let go of. Material possessions may not mean as much to you as they once did. You may have the “urge to purge” and get rid of belongings and clean out closets (both physical and emotional ones). You have a keen sensitivity to the energy around you—you may even feel what animals, plants, and insects feel. You may feel loving and at one with everything. I cried one day because I accidentally killed a wasp! I truly was not expecting that response. Some things you were once involved in may now seem unfavorable, and you either have made a career change or are thinking of trying something new. You may have a tremendous urge to give up substances or get help with an addiction. You may be seeking counseling for a troubled relationship, or you may have decided that it’s time to let go of a relationship and move on without a significant other.
Ascension anchors and embraces another level of spiritual awareness. I’m hearing more and more people admit that they are able to see, hear, and sense non-physical spirits around them. The children coming in to the Earth plane now seem to have this ability and they are bringing in skills they learned in past lives. All of these “symptoms” can be signs of spiritual growth.
The shift naturally requires change and that’s the very thing many humans are most afraid of. Some changes are great and you can see the benefit very quickly; other situations may seem troublesome as you walk through them. It may seem as though you are being pushed beyond your comfort zone as multiple areas of your life shift at once, but the universe is always supporting you even when things feel chaotic. It’s important to trust that these changes are blessings in disguise. By yielding to these changes rather than resisting them, we find peace even in the uncertainty we may feel as we embark on a new path. We might as well relax and enjoy the ride because it is taking us to a better place.
Spiritual awakening means no longer seeing yourself as a victim or a separate being. It refers to a growing awareness of the reality of our oneness with our creator and each other. It means life, lived to the fullest, moment by moment. This awakening will be different for each person because as individuations of the divine we each have unique personalities and life experiences. Awakening can manifest in an instant like a flash of lightning or we may move through periods of spiritual growth spurts—we may even have phases when it feels like we are going backward or it seems like we are being tested to see how much we have learned. Over the years the changes we are making become noticeable and permanent. For assistance with personal ascension, contact Yvonne.
