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.

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.

Spirituality’s Relationship With Mental Illness

Spirituality’s Relationship With Mental Illness

Spirituality and mental illness have a complex relationship. My goal today is to talk about mental illness within the spiritual community in a way that can help those of you reading this recognize just how pervasive it is in the spiritual community and help you identify spiritual people–psychics, channels, influencers, whomever–suffering from mental illness, all the while without stigmatizing it.

The Shadow Self and Shadow Work’s Role In Spirituality

I talk about shadow work all the time on social media. I’ve had a few people ask me questions about what the shadow is, what shadow work involves, and express an interest in learning more, so I’ve revamped an old post to provide a better explanation, as well as make a connection between spirituality and psychology that I think is often overlooked or misunderstood in the spiritual community.

What’s in a Self? Soul, Personality & Ego

What’s in a Self? Soul, Personality & Ego

“I am a bit confused about personality and soul. I understand about being in alignment and think I can feel when I am in it. However I am not sure if this is because I am in alignment with my personality or soul. If I live not in balance with my personality, I am soon aware that I don’t feel in alignment, but I thought that our personalities are just cloaks for our souls? Rarely do I feel urge to do something which I wouldn’t ordinarily do and wondered if this is soul overriding personality?”
