What the Heck is a Spiritual Awakening and Ascension
I’m no expert on this subject, but I feel very compelled to share with you the things I’ve learned so far and do it in a way that makes it easy to understand for those who are just waking up. There are many resources out there that can provide more technical and in-depth information. I’ll be happy to link to some of those resources below if you wish to dive in deeper. And I highly suggest that you do.
Please know that my intention is to share with you the most helpful information in an easy to understand way. During my own awakening, I found tons of information but it was all over the place. My goal with this site is to try and bring in the basics in one location to get you started on your journey.
There is a good chance that this information may not be perfectly correct, but I’m providing it to you through my own experience in the hope that it helps you on your journey.
WHAT IS A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
According to the Ascension Glossary
Spiritual Awakening is a simultaneous increase of Expanding Consciousness that occurs when our spiritual-energetic bodies connect into our physical bodies. Generally the catalyst for spiritual Awakening is discovered through the process of progressive Kundalini activation that starts in the base of our spine and moves the intelligent energies up the spine and into the Crown. As a human being undergoes the Awakening process, which can progress gradually over many years, that person shifts into perceptions of higher consciousness, which can include increased awareness of energy in the environment, perceiving multidimensional realities, sensing extradimensional entities and feeling a direct communion with God and the interconnected energy that exists between all things.
You may often go through your day-to-day life in a sort of robotic trance. You get up, go to work, go to school, come home, eat dinner, watch tv, repeat. You don’t seem to realize how routine our lives are until you begin to awaken to the true reality of the world around you.
You may find yourself beginning to question what you’ve always known to be true because it just doesn’t fit anymore. Maybe you feel like there is something more to life and you just can’t seem to figure it out.
You may be in the beginning steps of the awakening process. A process by which we begin to question things around us that we’ve always believed to be true. Things that we’ve been taught from trusted sources but it just doesn’t feel right to us anymore.
The process of awakening can take years for many, but we are at a time in our history where the awakening process is speeding up to help usher more of us into the process of ascension so that we can join earth in her transition to a new dimensional frequency.
So as you begin to look around and notice differences in the world or find information that you once thought was true, know that you have the right to question it and do your own research to find the answers you seek. Learn to trust your intuition because it’s one of the most powerful tools in your arsenal.
How We Awaken
One of the best methods for beginning to awaken is through meditation. This allows you to clear out all the noise in your mind to make space for new information to come in from your higher-self.
We spend so much or our day thinking and worrying and feeling stressed out, and this keeps us trapped in our robotic trance-like states. We spend more time on our smartphones and in front of the tv than we do getting to know ourselves and others.
When you to make time for yourself through meditation, practicing self-love, and raising your vibration, you will begin to connect to information locked within so that you can awaken to the true reality of our world.
So now that you are beginning to wake up to things not being quite the way you’ve always believed them to be, you will begin the process of ascension. Without getting too technical, there are many facets of the ascension process that happen simultaneously. Here are a few of the terms you may come across and my interpretation of what they mean.
As you begin to awaken, you may find that you are drawn to certain information. Maybe something grabs your attention on Facebook that you weren’t looking for, or maybe a video pops up in your YouTube feed that you never searched for. You check out the information and find that for some odd reason, it seems to resonate with you. And now you want to know a little more, so you check out another video or a different blog post, and now your mind is trying to piece together new information that you never knew existed.
When you allow yourself to seek new information and you trust that you are being intuitively guided to it, this begins the process of expanding your consciousness. It’s as if you are activating closed off parts of your mind and the new information is unlocking new levels of consciousness.
The more your consciousness expands through the acceptance and integration of new knowledge, the higher you are able to raise your vibrational frequency which is extremely important in the ascension process.
Increase in Vibration
The earth that we know today exists mostly in a 3rd Dimensional frequency which means that we operate in a relatively low vibrational frequency as a collective (think of a collective as all the humans on this earth).
Because of this lower frequency, we are unable to experience higher realms of existence. Yes, you heard me correctly, there are higher realms that we can exist in that many of us are just now becoming aware of. We’ll take a look at realms in another post.
Our Earth (Mother Gia), is now in the process of her ascension from a 3rd-dimensional reality to a 5th-dimensional reality, which is awesome for us because it means that we get to break free from all this lower energy that keeps us trapped in our daily robotic trance and allows us to become what we were truly meant to be – blissful, happy, joyous and one!
Whether you know it or not, we are all in the process of raising our vibrational frequency and this is happening through various planetary alignments and an increase in light and energy on our planet at this time.
It’s important that we all work on increasing our vibration to help our planet and mankind move into the next dimension and break free from the matrix we’ve been trapped in for so long.
How to Raise Your Vibration during your spiritual awakening
This is important! In order to begin to experience life from a higher dimensional reality, you have to be in vibrational alignment. There are many ways you can begin to work on raising your vibration. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Meditate every day
- Eat a more plant-based diet, less meat which is low in vibration
- Exercise, do yoga
- Practice self-love
- Use high-vibrational essential oils
- Daily positive affirmations
- Set positive intentions
- Practice gratitude
- Drink more water (floride free water is best)
There are many facets to this thing we call ascension. One of those facets requires us to clear out karma we’ve accumulated over many lifetimes.
What is Karma
In a nutshell – you reap what you sow.
We’ve all heard that, right? But you may not have realized just how true this statement is. To break it down, karma happens when you do something that has a negative effect on someone else. It’s going to come back around to bite you in the butt again until you make it right. And how exactly do you make it right? You make a better decision the next time around. Take the high road, be a kinder person. Making the right decision instead of the wrong one will release that karmic situation from recycling in your life over-and-over again until you get it right.
The crazy thing you may not realize is that you’ve been carrying karma with you from lifetime to lifetime. If you screw up in one lifetime, don’t worry, you will have a chance in the next lifetime to make it right.
But what if you continue to make the wrong choices? Then the karma keeps on building and building until you are finally able to see the cycles repeating in your life and you decide it’s time to make a better choice.
How to release karma for good
When you begin to notice certain cycles repeating in your life that are difficult or cause you pain, you need to take a good look at the situation and the actions you’ve taken in the past. If a cycle is repeating itself in your life, then you are missing the lesson it’s trying to teach you.
Ask yourself what you are supposed to learn from this issue. Could it be that you are too controlling, or that you don’t value yourself or think you are worthy, maybe you are too judgemental of others, you could possibly take certain things or people for granted, or maybe you’ve hurt someone in your life.
Not everything you do is done intentionally, nevertheless, if you do things in your life outside of unconditional love and acceptance, you will more than likely get the opportunity to try it again and hopefully get it right the next time.
When you begin to understand that everything you put out will return to you, you will become a bit more careful about the things you do and say. Remember that the only person responsible for the actions you take in your life is you. Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens through you.
Here are a few ways you can begin to release karmic cycles from your life:
- Let go of the past, it no longer serves you. Focus only on the present moment.
- Forgive, forgive, forgive.
- Meditate on what causes struggle in your life and go within to find the solution.
- Stop judging others, focus on improving yourself.
- Let go of victim mentality, stop blaming others for your problems and choices in life.
- Be grateful for everything in your life, even the problems because they are there to teach you lessons and help you grow.
- Improve your attitude about life and others.
- Come from a place of unconditional love. Know that we each have our own journey and lessons to learn and be respectful of those around you, even if you don’t agree with their actions.
LEARN TO LIVE A MORE HEART CENTERED LIFE AND YOU WILL ASCEND WITH EASE
I could go on for days about what it means to have a spiritual awakening and move through ascension, but at the heart of it all, it’s about living your life from a place of unconditional love. Learning to let go of the past and things that no longer serve you. Feeling appreciation for the life that you have, and living from your heart. All of these things combined will assist you in raising your vibration so you can begin to live your life from a 5th-dimensional reality.
Just do the very best you can do each day and know that others are doing the same. How can you help others live a better life? By becoming the very best version of yourself.
