Many of you will have at times experienced a deep inner sense that something is changing or that you don’t feel the same as you did before you embarked on your personal spiritual journey. This occurs due to the many subtle energetic changes that occur within your etheric background as you learn more and receive more light into your body. This is something that happens for all of us and it is also a sign that you are walking the path of spiritual ascension and enlightenment. This is a path that at times can be very difficult because it asks you to remove every aspect of your being which no longer serves your highest good. This can range from deep emotional or mental energies which might have been with you for many years and are now coming to the surface to be transmuted or it can also manifest itself in a dislike of the places, events and people that you used to enjoy visiting and being around. It can also be an emotional rollercoaster ride of happy times then times of sadness and complete loneliness. Just remember that you are not alone in these feelings and many thousands of other Lightworkers and Spiritual Seekers are going through the same thing.
On this page I have listed more of the signs of what I call "Spiritual Ascension Symptoms" or "Spiritual Energy Shifts" which I hope will help you to understand more about the process of the spiritual awakening which is currently occurring within your life. If you are new to energy healing and spiritual knowledge please do not be put off by anything on this page. Spiritual Ascension Symptoms do not occur for everyone but for a select few it can and usually will appear within their lives at some point BUT this process only lasts for certain amount of time. It is not lifelong.
When you start awakening yourself to the vastness of the universal consciousness your chakras will start to evolve into beautiful coloured disks of radiant light, this is especially true for the crown chakra. As your crown chakra expands it can be an intense experience. It might feel like a rod has been inserted into your crown or a sensation of something at the top of your head is being stretched open. Headaches are extremely common and they can range from small fixed position migraines, to a cluster headache. Headaches can also be symptoms of stress or a more serious condition so always make sure you seek medical assistance if the headaches continue for more than a few days or if they appear to be getting worse. You must look after the physical body when awakening your light body. Headaches can also be caused by too much energy flowing through the crown chakra when this area is stimulated. Sometimes you can ask spirit, you’re higher self or your guides to ease the discomfort that you are experiencing. Your guides will then adjust the energy flow to suit your own energy vibration which in turn should ease the pain. As your personal vibrational rate increases, and this includes the awakening and alignment of the Light Body, your pineal and the pituitary glands will also expand to accommodate the higher energy frequencies that you will be accessing.
FLU/COLD LIKE SYMPTOMS
Experiencing flu or Cold like symptoms is quite common and is part of the same process when awakening your light body and spiritually evolving. All you can do if this is part of the Ascension process is to just ride it out and don’t take antibiotics. The flu like symptoms are caused by the physical body reacting to the toxins which are released when the Chakra system begins to expand. It is helpful to supplement the body with blood fortifying enzymes, herbs and essential oils to ease the symptoms. Hot lemon drinks will also help cleanse the body. Don't work too much during this time because you are going through a major shift in vibration.
MUSCLE & JOINT PAIN
Through increasing your own light vibrational force, which is channelled through your body, you will start the process of releasing all blockages which are often stored in the joints of the body. Often these pains will be alleviated by asking for assistance from the Higher Self and guides to adjust the flow of energies and blockage removal to ease the pain. The body can quickly adjust to the higher vibration in a few days to weeks. Always remember that you can use traditional Reiki healing during any clearing process as this will also help in the assimilation of the higher vibrations energies that will be flowing through you after the awakening of your light body.
CRYING FOR NO REASON, FEELING EMOTIONALLY VULNERABLE
When a blockage from this lifetime, and other lifetimes, begins to be released the emotional body will react in a manner that will cause a very strong emotional releasement. Trying to control or resists these urges of releasement will only make things more difficult. You must allow the process of releasement to occur. Using the Bach Flower Remedies will further help the emotional body.
PAIN IN THE HEART AREA, PALPITATIONS OR BREATHING DIFFICULTIES
This is a very common symptom which can be experienced when the heart chakra begins to open and enlarge to receive more of the universal energies. The pain sensations in the heart chakra will sometimes manifest as discomfort in the physical heart. I can remember when I was first attuned to Reiki. The evening after my attunement I awoke in the middle of the night with a feeling of severe burning within the centre of my chest. I didn’t know at that time but this was a physical clearing of the heart chakra. It lasted for a few hours so I didn’t get much sleep that night but the morning after it had eased to a dull ache which finally removed itself a few days later. Any pain sensations in the heart can be very frightening because you may think you are having a heart attack and please always make sure you again seek medical advice if this pain radiates down into your arms, hands and neck. The best solution is to relax which will adjust the energy flow. Anxiety and fear only constricts the energy causing a more severe reaction. This is a normal experience when undergoing a frequency increase.
Waking in the morning and struggling to get out of bed after a full night of sleep, or falling asleep in the middle of the afternoon is very common when you are ascending. This is usually caused when the energy is shifting throughout the whole spiritual body. This will pass and each person has a different time frame for this alignment. For some it can take weeks or months while for others it can be many years before the severe tiredness eases. A simple method to increase your own personal energy levels is to create a simple pyramid structure to sit under and this will give you wonderful boosts of energy when you are lacking it. Make sure you drink lots of pure water to hydrate the cells, add crystals to energize the water. Eat light meals and try to always buy organic and free range veggies. Bach remedies, flower essences and essential oils will also help the transition.
Weight gain is a very common complaint when someone activates and aligns their light body to increase the energies that are accessed. The body feels like it is being invaded so it adds a layer of protection and if you’re a Lightworkers/Healers then you will usually store additional water within your physical body. Another major factor with weight gain is that with the activation of new DNA strands the fat is needed to hold the vibration. Body fat holds a much higher vibration which is necessary to generate healing and channelling energy. The body fat is evenly distributed around every cell within the physical body to allow the entire body to act as a divine tuning fork to hold the new higher vibration.
As you activate your light body, and open up to the higher vibrations you will find yourself becoming extremely sensitive to people, noises, light, smells, tastes, etc. This can affect the central nervous system and can be quite a difficult thing to cope with. It will almost feel as though you are allergic to everything around you. Do not worry as this is again a symptom that will ease over time and you might find, like I have, that it aids you in your healings because you actually become a Hyper Sensitive through the light body awakening and this will only go towards aiding you in helping others.
As you vibrate at a higher frequency you will find that you no longer want the things that you used to want. Coffee, tea and meat are just three of the dietary changes that people make as they begin to vibrate faster. Meat is especially dense and can really affect the body's energy, especially if it has hormones injected into it while the animal was alive. If you do eat meats try to make sure you always buy organic and free range. You may develop cravings for certain foods, or go off your favourite foods. This is normal and a part of the change to the higher vibration. If you find this happening, then let it happen and explore the new possibilities.
I know the symptoms of ascension do not sound all that pleasant but through the process of acceptance and assimilation instead of fighting the changes that are occurring will start a process that will make this process a lot smoother and easier to live with. As a positive aspect of Spiritual Ascension you will also start to see many natural abilities which will come to the surface of consciousness.
I would now like to discuss a few simple techniques that you can use to help yourself during this process of change. Please always feel free to use your own methods and you can alter any of these to suit your current needs. Remember that these methods are just guidelines and nothing is set in stone.
TECHNIQUE # 1 - GROUNDING
Working on grounding is usually the first thing that I will teach. This is due to the act of grounding being the foundation upon which everything else is built. Grounding is very simple to do yet is very powerful. I personally think that it is extremely important to ground, but it is surprising to hear many who do not know what grounding is or how to perform this. Grounding is the act of consciously creating an energetic connection to spirit and mother earth. You are a being of light and by your very nature you will have a great deal of power and energy flowing through you. Grounding will help to keep the physical and spiritual bodies in tip top condition which in turn will dramatically help you with your connection to your light body and the spiritual realms. The spiritual act of grounding will also bring powers to your work that you have never noticed before. These powers will work because you are aligning yourself to spirit and mother earth and it is through this connection and alignment that the gifts and blessings of spirit are given. In addition it increases spiritual and energetic awareness.
A very simple method that you can use to ground yourself is to imagine golden roots flowing from the base of your feet or sole chakras and intending for them to flow down through the Earth’s crust until they reach the inner core of mother earth where the roots will wrap themselves around this core.
Always remember that you must give energy back to mother earth when using this method.
TECHNIQUE # 2 - MICROCOSMIC OBIT
The Microcosmic Orbit involves an ancient Taoist form of meditation that generally combines breathing, meditation, and visualization to circulate energy called Chi. Chi is also known as the living life force around a specific pathway within the body. Commonly used in Taoist yoga, practitioners often refer to the exercise of Microcosmic Orbit as the self-winding wheel of law. Initiates and practitioners who use this technique generally believe that microcosmic orbit meditation gives them the ability to control the movement of this energy even to the point where it can be physically manifested by the movement of objects without physical touch. Chinese culture suggests that the essence or Chi circulates throughout various meridians within the body and that the microcosmic orbit meditation enables the individual to cultivate and control the movement of this energy around the female yin and the male yang pathways. The yang path travels from the abdomen down to the perineum and back toward the coccyx region. From here, the path continues up the spine, up and over the top of the head, and onto the face. Yang then moves down the face, into the mouth, and ends at the palate. Yin begins in the abdomen and travels up the medial front line of the body, ending at the tip of the tongue. According to the philosophy, the paths connect by touching the tip of the tongue to the roof of the mouth.
