4. Changes in energy
You may experience drastic changes in energy. Sometimes you might wake with energy flooding through you and a zest and enthusiasm for life and at other times feeling lethargic or depressed. This is all part of the process.
Try to go with your energy levels and rest when you need to. Pay attention to what might be causing these changes. Are certain people or situations leaving you drained, while other energize you? Follow these signs from your body. They are guiding you towards a more joyful and fulfilling life.
As a result of this process, you may also be more aware of where blockages in your body and energetic field are. You might notice tightness in your throat, shallow breathing, tension in the stomach or constriction around the heart area.
It may now be possible for you to release these blockages by imagining light flowing into these areas. You can also use a chakra meditation, yoga, or Reiki to help shift the blocks and allow the higher energies to flow more easily.
As you shift your energies to a higher frequency you may feel a bit disorientated and detached from reality. Practicing a grounding technique such as walking barefoot on the earth can help to stabilize you and maintain a balance between your physical and spiritual form.
Spending time in nature can also help you to remain grounded.
5. Changes In Sleep Patterns
Ascension can affect your sleep patterns causing you to need more or less sleep. A great deal of spiritual work, such as releasing old energies, healing, and integration, happens while you sleep. This can mean you experience vivid dreams or keep waking up during the night.
You might like to spend some time journaling or drawing if you wake up after a dream to help you integrate the dream knowledge. If you find it difficult to sleep try meditation or any spiritual practice that feels right for you.
6. Changing Relationships
Spiritual Ascension can affect your relationships. This is one of the things that often holds us back, as we are scared to lose the ones we love. However, those who are meant to be in our lives will embrace the new version of ourselves and we will find new friends and soul mates coming into our lives as we change. It can be hard to let go of people, but some people were only meant to be with us for a certain season of our lives.
7. You have a sense of longing
Sometimes, as part of your Ascension, you may have an experience of loss, longing or nostalgia. There may be a sense of something you want or need but you just can’t grasp what it is. There may also be a feeling of longing for home, but with no idea of what home is.
The process of Ascension can lead us to feel disorientated. Journaling about these feelings often leads to more clarity. Make some quiet time to spend with yourself every day so you can learn more about who you really are, what your purpose might be and what home means to you. As you progress through the process you will find your spiritual home and you will find yourself.
How to deal with these symptoms
As far as possible stay open to the experience of all these Ascension symptoms. Blocking or resisting them will slow down the ascension process. Let go and allow the changes of Ascension to flow through your life.
Get help and support when you need it. If you have no one in your life that understands what you are going through then you can find a supportive community online or join a local group with a spiritual orientation. In this way, you will find people who will understand what you are going through and provide you with support and guidance.
If you’re having physical or mental symptoms, it might be wise to seek professional help to rule out physical causes.
There are always positive steps you can take to help you through Ascension symptoms. I recommend you develop a practice such as yoga, meditation or journaling to help you integrate your new awareness.
Your practice can actually be whatever you find supports you, whether that is spending time in nature, art music, Wicca, angel meditation or any other practice you find supportive. The key is to be consistent and make time to focus on your spiritual health and wellbeing every day.
