One of my friends asked to come in for a session.
“I think I’m getting ready to transition, and I want your help. I choose to do this consciously.”
Even considering he had a pre-existing medical condition, this request itself was not unusual. What was unusual is that he was the third person in two weeks to say something like this to me.
My first response was, “Of course. It’s good to do this consciously. And you already know how to do this. You’ve done it before. All I’m going to do is help you remember how.”
Personally, I believe we all have the memories of ascension locked inside us. I don’t believe these memories belong to only one or two groups of people. They belong to all of us because we are all one. We have all been here before. And we can all remember what we need to so we can choose to transition or ascend consciously. By consciously, I mean, with deliberate intent.
After all, it’s 2012. The year of ascension. And it’s time.
Ascension: to move up or to ascend.
I don’t believe that ascension, either with individuals or the planet, is going to happen in one day. It is a process. It takes time. We are right where we need to be for our part in the process.
The actual moment of ascension, however, can be a split second. Or less than that.
We can choose to do this physically, with our body, into other dimensions. Or we can choose to ascend daily with our spirit, in our consciousness, our frequency, our vibration. Or we can do both.
And I believe we can choose when we ascend, even given there’s a divine timing for all things. And we are part of that, too.
Here is my prescription for consciously choosing and preparing for our ascension and for remembering how to do this.
It is not necessary to do these steps in this order. They are fluid, and sometimes happen simultaneously. It’s more important to keep focused on accomplishing them continually. Like a perpetual motion machine. The rest will take care of itself.
Clear your energy field. Our energy field takes on all kinds of stuff from our past, our past lives, our daily lives, other people, etc. And we don’t always know what to do with this stuff. If we hold onto it, our field gets cluttered with things we don’t need or want, energies that don’t serve us, and we become slow and dense. A clear field makes us lighter and freer. Think about it this way: have you ever tried to swim in polluted water? Can you imagine what it would take to try to not breathe or swallow any pollution? To swim around floating objects, some of which are disgusting? To have to move so carefully you wouldn’t become hurt or diseased? Now imagine what it’s like to swim in a crystal clear lake, fed from mountain springs. Easy, effortless, delightful. No worries or fears. No disgusting stuff. Which do you prefer? Which is easiest? Which is healthiest? Which one makes you feel lighter and freer?
A clear energy field also makes everything manifest more quickly and easily. Think about it this way: When you are tired and slow, isn’t it difficult to be creative? To even think of something fun, new and different? But when you are awake, alert and refreshed, isn’t it easy to think of new ideas? Exciting to try new techniques? Aren’t you able to be more creative with less effort?
Above all, when clearing your energy field, choose to clear fear.
Fear of dying.
Fear of change.
Fear of life.
Fear keeps us immobilized.
Fear keeps us stagnant.
Fear keeps us low in vibration.
Fear keeps us in resistance.
The opposite of fear can be safety, support, action, or courage.
These attributes will propel forward motion, helping us to continue our growth and movement.
How do we clear our energy fields?
I believe we need to work on all our bodies and layers. Beginning with the physical body. Exercise, good food, clean water, and a healthy environment are essential to the extent we are able to provide that. An internal cleanse at least once a year is helpful to keep the body clear of stagnant energy and substances that can lead to dis-ease. Emotional release work also helps to keep the energy flowing. Find what works for you and let it go. You don’t want to be taking pounds of pain with you when you ascend, and in fact, you can’t take lower third dimensional energies to the fourth dimension. Holding onto them will keep you here longer. Just learn how to let it go with grace and ease.
A spiritual practice of some kind is essential to raising your vibration and keeping you in a high frequency. Meditation, yoga, chanting, praying. It doesn’t matter. Just find what works for you and do more of it.
What we are inside is reflected outside of us and vice versa. Clean your house or your living space. Keep it clear of clutter. Give away, sell or trade things you don’t use, don’t need, don’t want, maybe never liked but you kept it because Great-Aunt Betty gave it to you. Keep the energy flowing around you. Have things like wind chimes, fountains, and flags to help shift the energy. Employ incense, sage, palo santo or other scents that transmute negativity. Rearrange the furniture to create change and shift. Above all keep your energy moving and keep energy moving around you. This promotes clearing, flow, and continual movement.
Raise your vibration. When clearing old stuck energy, hold the focus and intent on instilling higher vibrations to refill your field. Vibrations such as love and gratitude are perfect examples. Or use the stargate energies that include love, truth, beauty, trust, peace, harmony, and reverence for all life. Or add the angelic stargate energies (see this month’s article The Angel Stargate). Or any other high vibrational concepts that your higher self shares with you. These high vibrations keep you healing yourself. And they prevent you from taking on the lower, stuck energy you just released. The higher your vibration, the easier it is to ascend quickly.
Stay in your heart. Using whatever method you can, promote positive thoughts, feelings and action that are in harmony with your soul, humanity and all life everywhere. Utilize your heart space to create your chosen reality. Not just once in awhile. Every day. All day, if you can.
Intend ease and grace. When I don’t use those words, everything is harder than I think it needs to be. Ease and grace is the grease on the wheels. The butter on a hot knife. The effortlessness of spirit that reminds us it really can be this way. All the time. We just have to request it and believe it. Or, if it’s too hard to believe, try an experiment. Begin one day by saying, “Today I will experience ease and grace in absolutely everything I do.” And watch what happens! I think this will make a believer out of most.
Recognize you have options. You are not a victim of circumstances. You are not a scapegoat of your doctors, your attorneys, your enemies or even your friends. If you don’t like what you have created, then change it. You are a creator of everything around you. The moment you read this, the moment your life changes forever.
There’s no shame in change.
Change is a natural cycle of life.
To not change is unnatural.
So change what you don’t like and don’t choose.
Be open to all your options.
They are always there for us if we allow.
Allow for divine timing. I may have an outcome in my mind, but if it is not in alignment with spirit, it isn’t going to happen when I choose. It happens in its divine timing, for everyone’s highest good and healing. We may not always see it this way at the moment, but in retrospect, we will. Hindsight is always 20/20. We can always find the greater good when we look for it. And allowing for divine timing helps us to be more in the natural flow of the universe, and of all of creation. Going with the flow.
Follow higher guidance. There’s a reason this is called higher. This part of us that is so wise, so all knowing, so all seeing can surely direct us better than our lower self or our primary self connected to this body and this consciousness level. I have regretted times when I didn’t listen to my higher guidance. And I am not choosing that again. Sometimes this guidance comes from inside me, with whispers or nudges. Sometimes it comes from outside sources that I respect. Books, friends, animal totems, etc. However it reveals itself, it definitely knows better than I do at the moment.
Repeat these steps as necessary until complete.
Is it really this simple?
Yes, I believe it is. The more I follow these steps, the easier my life gets. The clearer my energy field is. The more magnificent my creations are. And I believe ascension is one of my creations. It hasn’t happened yet. But it has. As an ongoing process. In its divine timing.
