7 Ascension Symptoms That Show You Are Awakening

///7 Ascension Symptoms That Show You Are Awakening

You may experience certain ascension symptoms as your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual structures transform to a higher level of consciousness.

What is Ascension?

Ascension is the process of spiritual awakening that moves you into a higher level of consciousness. When this happens, you may experience some ascension symptoms.

Through the process of ascension, your vibrational frequency is becoming lighter. This requires the discarding of egoic thinking and moving into a lighter realm of love and light. Through this processes of Ascension, you will become aware of the interconnectedness of all things and will be able to let go of thought patterns and physical structures that cause stress and fear.

Ascension is a wonderful process that will lead to radical changes in the way you think, act and interact with others. However, as with all spiritual changes, there may be some discomfort along the way.

You may experience some ascension symptoms as you go through this process of spiritual awakening. However, these ascension symptoms are not inevitable and are not caused by the ascension process itself. They are actually a result of holding on to limitations and resistance to the process. By working through any Ascension symptoms you can reduce the discomfort and speed up the process of Ascension.

Here are 7 Ascension symptoms you might experience on your path to awakening

1.Heightened Sensitivity And Awareness

You may experience heightened sensitivity to the environment. You may find an increase in your sense of smell, touch, hearing and taste.

These symptoms can sometimes be uncomfortable. You may develop food intolerances as your body purifies itself of what no longer serves you. In addition, you may find you can no longer bear certain fabrics, artificial body care products or chemical based cleaners. You may also become sensitive to strong smells, loud noises, heat, and cold.

On the more positive side, you may become more present, noticing the beauty in things more than you did before. You may also get quite emotional on hearing beautiful music or looking at a wonderful sunset. As well as these symptoms you may also start to see auras and orbs or hear sounds that other cannot hear.

2. Physical Changes

You may experience physical changes in your body. This could be in the form of aches and pains. Common areas to hold tension and resistance are the neck and shoulders, throat and jaw. These symptoms may be because you feel like you are carrying a heavy burden or because you are afraid to voice your thoughts for fear of what others might think.

Practicing meditation, yoga or Reiki can help these physical symptoms. You can also try spiritual cleansing, massage, a chakra meditation or a simple salt bath to help shift blocked energies. But remember they may be a call to change. Notice how you feel after any activity. If it makes you feel lighter, more joyful and energetic then it is obviously in line with your new awareness. If it makes you feel tired and achy or lowers your mood then see if you can reduce this activity in your life.

On a more positive note, your changes in sensitivity might have led you to choose lighter and fresher foods and to be more interested in taking care of your physical body. You may have also moved towards a more natural lifestyle and want to spend more time in nature.

These choices may have led you to feeling physically fitter, healthier and more energetic.

3. Changes in mood

Your heightened sensitivity may affect you emotionally as well as physically. As part of the ascension process, you may find that you experience rapid changes in mood. You may also experience increased empathy. As well as being more sensitive to the emotions of others, you also find yourself dealing with emotional disturbances from the past. While this may feel uncomfortable, it is part of the process of healing and developing.

As well as these negative emotions you may also experience unaccountable moments of joy and bliss. You may find that you experience intense feelings of love for all beings. You may be overwhelmed to the point of tears by the beauty of a flower, the laughter or a child or the tears of a loved one.

The important thing is not to deny or repress these feelings but to experience them. Allow yourself to cry or be angry if you need to. 

Write a letter to someone who hurt you, or to yourself, to express these feelings. Talk to someone you trust if your feel it will be helpful. Or simply laugh, sing, cry or dance the feelings. You can also journal, paint or express these emotions in some other creative outlet.

When strong emotions come up, breathe, face and feel the emotion in whatever way feels appropriate, and then when you’re ready, let it go.

    Most definitely am experiencing this. I am grappling with alot of these issues. It’s a time for letting go and letting God for me, and it’s exciting and disorienting at the same time. Working on #6 as that is proving a bit more difficult for me. Growing pains I suppose! This is a great site btw! Thanks!

    I was told that heart palpitations were also a symptom and I am going through this right now.
    I only sleep 5-6 hours a night where I used to need 8-10 just a few years ago and sometimes
    the heart palpitations wake me up from my sleep. This is most disturbing because I don’t know
    how I got this way, but suspect some over-activity and dehydration back in February sent me
    to the hospital with an uncontrolled heart rhythm. Now my heart has been weakened on top
    of the fact that I can feel Kundalini rising in my spine and it feels “crunchy”, like it’s trying to
    make its way through my heart chakra but it’s stuck— either because I had a past injury there,
    OR…I have issues with forgiveness and moving forward. I wish someone could help me get
    through this because it is very PAINFUL…!!

    Thank-you for detailing it so perfectly, I am embracing all these changes and feel so good for doing so, including seeing all my beautiful orbs/spirit angels – although yesterday was my first difficult day. I saw a homeless person on the street- and I immediately felt and connected with his hardship and pain (I felt a oneness with his soul) deep, deep sad emotion came over me. My first reaction was to go to his aid as in a call for help, so I reached into my purse only to find two coins amounting $2, I thought what is this going to do to help provide for him> and then I heard a voice, say very clearly…. (buy him breakfast). I went over to this stranger asked him can I buy you breakfast, he replied yes and he gave me his detailed request. I gave him breakfast and told him that he was loved, very much loved and I told him that love is the only thing in this life that really matters. When I walked away – tears starting streaming down my face as I felt a sadness within me that stayed a good part of the day. My feelings are so deep

    I too am experiencing most all of these symptoms. As a Pilates and yoga instructor, I was thinking that this body pain had come from teaching but with so much stretching and self care, it makes more sense that this is energetic.

    I even have had my skin breaking out around my jaw, slightly above and onto the sides of my neck, neck pain and a tightness right in the center of my back.

    I have been able to see orbs and people’s auras and have developed many food allergies that before didn’t bother me at all, especially in dairy and sugar.

    I have felt absolutely energetically exhausted after certain personal training and completely exhilarated, focused and energized after giving reiki treatments.

    My friend brought this to my attention today and I found this article that is precisely what I am experiencing. I knew it but definitely needed a reminder so this article summed it up perfectly.

    Thank you for sharing!

    When I wake in the night, I’m experiencing layers of colors over my “normal” eyesight. Beams of lights radiating off my walls doorways and house hold objects…rainbow like gleams out of the corner of my eye. It’s quite beautiful. Also people are approaching me in public, to either vent or engage…their aware of something I carry now I maybe something I’ve released? Butterfly’s, dragonfly’s, caterpillars crickets squirells all seem to get a bit closer and I’m more aware of their preseence. I had a dream about a chakra it was red, I think it was healed in my dream but I woke with the new awareness of it and so I’m beginning to listen to 396 hz beat music to heal me on a cellular level and worky way up to other beats. Thank u for this article.

    I have been going through my own process rather intensely. One very important part of this for me has been being taught to remove these energy blockages that are causing these symptoms I’m reading about for some in the comments. In order to understand them they had to send me deep into all the different states that are araising and it was not easy. If anyone needs help I am always willing to be at service. I can remotely work on anyone in the universe from my home.
    This is my very first time publicly stating my abilities. I know that you can feel like you are losing everything at times but I promise a little energy work and letting go of your mind works wonders. I believe starting to help others is the key to my next level. So no more holding back precious gifts.

      Hi Lauren,

      Can you tell me what type of remote healing you do? I have been going through the ascension process for 5 years now. I’m looking to get into a spiritual fitness protocol that will sustain me. Have to build myself back up.

      Can you let me know?

    Hi, thank you for describing the process. It has been helpful. I suffer from sleeplessness, needed to quit dairy and sugar, have lots of mind-boggling muscle cramps and stuff and also guides communicating sometimes. Can anyone tell me, where does this lead to? Is there an end to this process? What happens next? Thank you.
