SPIRITUAL TERMINOLOGY AND MEANINGS

Ascension

What is ascension?

The term ascension means to access and embody higher levels of consciousness through raising one’s vibrational frequency and expanding conscious awareness.

In the literal sense, it refers to the movement from lower dimensions of consciousness to higher dimensions of consciousness, specifically from the 3rd dimension where vibrational frequencies are slower and lower and energy is condensed into matter, to the 5th dimension where vibrational frequencies are faster and higher.

Ascension Symptoms

Ascension symptoms is a term people often use to describe the unexplainable physical and intuitive feelings, sensations, and experiences associated with the ascension process. Symptoms vary widely and may be experienced periodically throughout your spiritual journey. 

If a sensation is associated with a known medical condition, it should not be confused as an ascension symptom. Please see a licensed medical doctor if you are experiencing unexplainable chronic pain or feelings of discomfort. Likewise, mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, or panic are not ascension symptoms and should not be looked at as such. If you are experiencing prolonged bouts of depression, anxiety, or panic, please consult a licensed, trauma-informed counselor or therapist.

Ascended Master

Ascended masters are spiritual figures who have achieved the highest level of ascension or initiation. An ascended master is a label often applied to past spiritual figures who are believed to have been incarnate on earth, such as Buddha and Jesus.

Your Perspective isn’t Valid if it Contradicts Objective Reality

A common misconception that many spiritual people have is that spirituality tells us that we each create our own reality. What many often don’t realize, however, is that reality isn’t what is subjective –– your experience of it is what is subjective. The personal beliefs and opinions formed by those experiences are may not be valid, particularly compared to someone else’s.
