(ForPart 1, see http://goldenageofgaia.com/2012-essays-2/how-ascension-might-occur-part-1/.)
Only in Ascension Do We Take Our Physical Body with Us into a Higher Dimension
In sahaja samadhi our physical bodies do not migrate to a higher dimension during the remainder of our physical life, but in ascension they do.
“This time [i.e., this enlightenment] you ascend with your physical body. It is not therefore [the] death of your old one, but simply a change that enables you to use it in a higher vibration.” (1)
SaLuSa calls ascension “unique” for this reason. (2) A group calling itself the Arcturians, speaking through Suzanne Carroll, note that, in previous enlightenments, “you died and abandoned your physical body in order to soar into your true Home in the higher dimensions. In your present reality, you have volunteered to stay on earth in your earth vessel to assist with planetary ascension.” (3) With ascension, the body will rise up.
SaLuSa’s comrades, Atmos and Diane, both from Sirius, concur. Atmos calls “the coming Ascension … a unique event, because it is the first occasion that you have been given the opportunity to ascend with your physical body.” (4) Diane agrees: “the coming unique opportunity [is] to ascent with a physical body.” (5)
SaLuSa informs us that “bodies are vehicles that house your soul for the duration of your time in any one environment. Soon yours will change again, as you move into the higher vibrations and indeed for some of you they have already begun.” (6)
Only in Ascension do Our Bodies Alter from Carbon to Crystalline Base
The physical body, SaLuSa continues, “has changed its body cells to make it suitable for life in the higher dimensions.” (7) One of these changes is that the structure of our physical body will not be “as your existing carbon-based body, but one that has become crystalline and can function in the 5th. Dimension, one that has become lighter, and has moved into a near perfect expression of itself.” (8) Ela of Arcturus calls our new body a “higher expression of your physical body.” (9)
Why need we make this change? SaLuSa states that “the physical matter of your dimension is tenuous and cannot hold together in the higher realms. That is why the changes from carbon-based cells to crystalline, are necessary.” (10)
A spiritual group calling itself the White-Winged Collective Consciousness of Nine asserts that the crystalline patterning of the body was occurring by late 2008: “The crystalline energies are now moving into your density or rather your bodies are adjusting to their new crystalline patternings.” (11)
It is common to hear the masters of ascension call this new vehicle a “light body.” The Archangel Michael, for instance, uses this terminology: “Ascension is when the soul transforms its physical body into light and steps into the next level of consciousness.” (12) The Arcturians also call ascension “a grand transformation from a carbon-based body to a light-based body.” (13)
SaLuSa uses the term as well: “In the realms of Light, … your bodies are already changing at this very time, and your Light bodies are forming in readiness for Ascension.” (14)
Matthew Ward adviises is on how to read and work with these changes.
“Some of you are asking how to know if you are absorbing sufficient light for cells to change from carbon to crystalline. I would say that the best sign is your thoughts, feelings and choices: Are they aligned with godliness? Have you forgiven self and others for actual or imagined hurts; is your mind open to considering new information; are you exercising your powers of discernment and trusting your intuition?” (15)
Ascension Promises a Return to “Full” Consciousness
The masters of ascension make a claim that I’m not aware the masters of enlightenment make and that is that ascension promises a return to “full” consciousness.
Given that the masters of ascension say that ascension is virtually endless, why would they associate “full consciousness” with the Fifth Dimension, when endless dimensions with their expansions of consciousness lie beyond it?
One reason which is given here is they say that we chose to descend from the Fifth Dimension into the Third in order to experience separation from God and learn from that experience. Now that we are returning to the Fifth Dimension, they may be arguing that we’re returning to the “full” consciousness we previously possessed.
It may also be that the masters of ascension are engineering a project that involves a very large number of people on the planet, many of whom do not have an extensive spiritual background. The masters may wish to use a simplified and easily-understood spiritual vocabulary so as to inspire, elicit understanding, and not confuse.
It could also be that the re-awakening of dormant DNA strands and chakras, which we will discuss in the following section, as well as the conditions of life in the Fifth Dimension make our consciousness after ascension much fuller compared to our consciousness before.
Whatever the reason, they predict an enhancement of our consciousness that is wonderful to anticipate. Here SaLuSa offers the explanation of a return to a “full” state of consciousness we previously possessed.
“You are far from full consciousness, yet in a comparatively short time you will again reach such levels. With your finite minds you cannot truly understand what that means, but try imagining that you know everything that is, was and will be.
“Perhaps it sounds too much for you to deal with, but when it occurs it will be a most natural development for you. You will be returning to a familiar state that you once held before you moved into the cycle of duality.” (16)
On another occasion, he makes the claim that “once ascended you will have all knowledge available to you.” (17) He repeats this claim elsewhere: “In time you will be gaining super-consciousness and then you will become ‘All Knowing.’” (18) This is not a trivial prediction.
It is not only the galactics that make these promises. The terrestrial master of ascension, Saul, also tells us that “full” consciousness is where humanity is headed and this event is approaching rapidly.” (19)
“As you wait expectantly to move into full consciousness, be aware that you will not have to wait very much longer. It is your Father’s Will and yours that you make this move back into His glorious Presence where you belong.” (20)
Certainly we have much to look forward to in terms of an expansion of our awareness as a result of ascension, apparently much more than enlightenment alone offers.
Only Ascension Involves an Increase in the Number of DNA Strands and Chakras
What specific events may be bringing on this return to full consciousness? We have already heard that a change to crystalline structure and the light available in the Fifth Dimension are elements. Another element is additional structural changes that will be made to our DNA strands and chakra system.
Apparently, ten strands of our DNA, which some scientists call “junk DNA,” were turned off millennia ago and will be reactivated. As well, five chakras (some say six) will be re-awakened from their present dormancy. These are some of the changes which will, I believe, restore us to our previous high state of consciousness.
Sheldan Nidle’s Spiritual Hierarchy and Galactic Federation (SHGF) describes these changes and attributes to them our return to “full” consciousness.
“Inside you, vast alterations to your RNA/DNA are either happening or preparing to happen.” (21)
“You are integrating physical and spiritual changes that are to manifest a 13-chakra system and a fully functioning union between all your RNA/DNA.” (22)
“Physicality is being restructured in order to allow you to move into a higher reality. This jump from 3-D to 5-D is quite complex and needs to be done in a series of stages involving everything in your solar system.
“As you know by now, these changes involve awakening your dormant chakras and long-inactive RNA/DNA, thus reordering how you are put together and preparing the ground for reintegrating you with your spiritual components.
“This is the path to full consciousness. It is causing your overall frequencies to increase and realign in new ways with the living universe. This is sending a signal to Mother Earth and the solar system to move upward as well. The result is a massive movement toward a wholly new reality!” (23)
“Heaven is daily making the adjustments to your genetics, chakra system, and so forth, which are needed to move you toward full consciousness. Our task is at first to oversee these alterations and then to instruct you directly in what you need to do in order to live successfully as a new Being in this new environment.” (24)
The White-Winged Collective Consciousness of Nine says that these changes have already taken place in some terrestrials.
“Many of you have moved beyond the two-strand, double helix of your DNA and are existing now within upgraded chakra systems and are using far more of your brain capacity than before.” (25)
Damur of Antares directs his comments to those whose DNA has not come online. He says that even these suspect what is occurring. He identifies these changes as important to our evolution and, like Matthew, makes suggestions as to how we may help the process along.
“It will be some time before you are ready to function in this way. However you are aware that your DNA is changing. It helps for you to know this. Be aware that as you lighten up and release old paradigms, your DNA is able to more readily change and adapt to your new reality, which is one of a higher vibration. As you drop the old ways, this enables your RNA/DNA to bring in the new ways. The energy that you are taking on allows you to change and evolve.
“Your original divine blueprint lies within you and has always been within you. It carries the answers to everything. Yes, everything is within. You are the answers to your questions. And you helped to design the Grand Plan that you find yourselves in.” (26)
Many masters of ascension tell us that we are recovering abilities we once had. Archangel Michael’s claim is typical of their teachings on the matter:
“It is important for you understand that your physical vessel was encoded for the return to the higher vibrational, more rarified realms of Light from the inception of your earthly embodiment experiences.” (27)
Matthew Ward combines explanations of both crystalline and DNA changes to describe how the dark forces’ attempts to “dumb down” humanity are about to be reversed.
“The absorption of light is restoring bodies’ DNA to its state prior to the dark forces’ altering Earth humankind’s cellular structure to ‘dumb them down’ intellectually, spiritually and physically. If anything can be called a ‘sin,’ it is interfering with the growth of a soul, and in violation of all universal laws, that is exactly what the dark forces did to an entire civilization.
“In higher densities, cells are crystalline and their composition encompasses purity of character, spiritual clarity, and a long physical life span free of all dis-ease. Conversely, the carbon cells of third density life forms invite the base characteristics associated with evil as well as greatly reduced mind power, severely weakened will, and a multitude of physical, emotional and mental infirmities.
“Lifetimes with those characteristics and weaknesses dominant in the peoples’ bodies and reflected in their thoughts, feelings and behavior were stored in cellular memories and brought forward from one generation to the next.
“It was that diabolical alteration of humankind’s make-up eons ago that caused souls’ personages to gradually spiral downward from the planes of light into deep third density, where the planetary puppets of the dark forces could easily keep the masses in ignorance about their origins in the light, their unlimited manifesting potential, and the inseparability of all souls with God and each other.
“Emerging from that level of limitations, where the dark forces reigned through their powerful tool and fuel—FEAR!—has required a heroic effort on the part of souls who time and again incarnated with the intention to overcome the dark influence, but failed. Most of you spent many hundreds of lifetimes in that try/fail cycle, and this time you succeeded in breaking out of it! By absorbing the light, you are reclaiming your god and goddess selves and taking your rightful place in our universal family.” (28)
In a later message, Matthew returns to the matter, describing the impact of this “dumbing down.” Again, he suggests that the re-awakening of our DNA is one factor in our return to “full” consciousness.
“Because the cellular memory embedded in your DNA is constructed with the concept of linear time, that is your only frame of reference for what your history has recorded and what you have experienced to date, what is going on in your life and your world in this moment, and looking ahead to the outcome of plans.
“In a recent message, we spoke about the altering of DNA to ‘dumb down’ Earth humankind, and programming the cells with aging, death and linear time was part of that. Until your cellular memory is restored to its original state, which is being accomplished via light absorption, it has no capacity to comprehend the universal continuum, where everything that ever was, IS.” (29)
SaLuSa supports Matthew’s claim and declares that the masters of ascension will soon explain Earth’s true history.
“Before Ascension, much will become clear to you that has been concealed by those who have taken control of your lives for eons of time. It may seem incredible to know that you have existed with only a partial consciousness, but that has been the work of the dark energies and Beings that are within your Universe.
“You have been genetically altered by them to reduce your level of consciousness to one where you can be totally controlled. We are pleased to inform you that their influence has now been removed, and they are no longer allowed to interfere with the final stages of this cycle. Instead, it is the higher vibrations that are uplifting you to a level that is consistent with your needs to prepare for Ascension.” (30)
The SHGF informs us that the re-awakening of our DNA and our chakras is currently expanding our reality.
“This alteration of your world and your physical selves is rewriting the way you perceive yourselves and the world you live in. Your reality is expanding and is increasingly able to manifest what was once thought to be impossible.” (31)
SaLuSa also tells us that the re-awakening of our chakra system is contributing to our return to “full consciousness.” Notice that SaLuSa mentions only twelve chakras where the SHGF mentioned thirteen.
“The measure of your development and upliftment can be gauged from the state of your chakra system. The average person only has the lower three chakras fully active, whereas those who have lifted their consciousness are most likely to have the seven main ones well opened. There are higher chakras that are also being opened up, and eventually you will reach a stage where there are 12 main centres fully opened.
“In this magnificent state of full awareness you will have returned to super-consciousness.” (32)
A group called the Sirian Council agrees with Matthew that light waves from the galactic center are stimulating the re-awakening process.
“Dormant genetic codes and cellular memory are being stimulated awake by the powerful stellar waves of light particles entering our atmosphere. As the planet moves through the Universal Galactic Core these upcoming years, our bio-energetics will be activated and our minds will expand with a greater understanding of Ascension.” (33)
Kryon tells us that “right now there is more information being delivered to your DNA than ever before. It’s powerful and esoteric.” (34)
A group called the Andromedans informs us that “never before have so many enlightened souls gathered in service to link humanity to the genetic pathways of Christ consciousness.” (35)
The subject of the changes to our DNA and chakra systems deserves an article to itself. Along with the discussions of the change to a crystalline structure, it provides our most important clue to why ascension is said to be a return to “full” consciousness.
Only Ascension Takes Us Out of the Third and Into the Fifth Dimension
After experiencing sahaja, Sri Ramana would still have awakened in the Third Dimension of physicality. Granted that his mind may have been in another dimension, his body was in third density. The claim that, with ascension, we will find ourselves in another, higher dimension is another difference between enlightenment and ascension.
Matthew Ward tells us that “in this unique time in the universe, when all experiencing is being accelerated, souls have been given the unprecedented opportunity to evolve out of third density’s low vibrations and physically accompany Earth into higher energy planes.” (36)
According to SaLuSa, “ascension will place you in the fifth dimension or higher, which is far removed from the limiting vibrations you are now in.” (37)
The White-Winged Collective Consciousness of Nine alleged in late 2008 that many people were already inhabiting the Fifth Dimension.
“The higher dimensional energies are being embraced wholeheartedly and many are existing now almost exclusively within the fifth dimensional reality. Clarity and oneness is embraced now by so many and is being anchored onto the planet’s grid system so that others may access it.” (38)
Duality, not our real home, has served its purpose, SaLuSa says, and will not continue past the end of the cycle in 2012. Even the astral planes of the afterlife world will be affected.
“You have been living in a reality that has been created by you, and served its purpose by fulfilling your desires. It was not however meant to be permanent, and would in any event have changed in response to the higher energies. Duality such as you have experienced it is not to continue beyond the end of the cycle, and that will also include the astral dimensions. … Your subconscious memories of having come from the higher dimensions will draw you back to them. You will instinctively feel that it is where your real home lies.” (39)
Ascension Will Not Be Sudden, as Enlightenment is, but Gradual
According to intuitive Karen Bishop, ascension “is not sudden, like the 3D death process…. It is gradual.” (40) It is also not as sudden as enlighenment is.
Matthew Ward says that:
“The differences between life in this moment and in the Golden Age will be amazing and magnificent, but life will not differ dramatically from one day to the next as Earth continues on her journey through fourth density and on into fifth.” (41)
The Arcturians provide a description of the manner in which we will transition from the Third to the Fifth Dimension.
“At first, both the Third Dimensional Operating System and the Multidimensional Operating System will both be online. Eventually, the Multidimensional Operating System will be the main system, which means that your primary reality/consciousness will be in the fifth dimension and beyond. Yet, you will still be aware of the third and fourth dimensions.
“This process has already begun for those of you in our [Arcturian] Corridor, although you may not be fully aware of it in your mundane states of consciousness.” (42)
“As the third-dimensional reality continues to move into your past, and your fifth-dimensional reality moves into your present, your primary consciousness becomes fifth-dimensional. (43)
SaLuSa explains that “ascension is a process that is controlled by Higher Beings, who have assessed the state of Mankind’s level of consciousness. The result is that you are gently moved onto a different path that helps you become enlightened.” (44)
He adds that “we believe in easing you into the Light so that you have time to assimilate it into your Being. We know that the pressures of everyday life have their effect upon you, and if you feel run down take the time to find your place of quietness and peace. Relax into the dream that allows you to draw the energies of the future to you, and re-charge yourself.” (45)
Only in Ascension, and Not in Enlightenment, is There No Illness, Hunger, Ageing, or Death
After experiencing sahaja, Sri Ramana may still have needed to sleep, eat, drink, and so on. While he was not hurt of the second (or physical) death, as Jesus would call it (the first death being that of the ego), Sri Ramana still had to undergo physical death.
He was also still subject to his prarabdha karma, the karma that is already launched and must be experienced in this lifetime. He died of a cancer near his elbow. While he didn’t suffer from the condition, he still endured it.
But apparently those who ascend will not be affected by illness, hunger, death or other unpleasant 3D conditions. Says Ker-On of Venus:
“Perhaps best of all from a personal point of view, is that you change to a perfect body composed of crystalline cells, one that is not affected by disease or ailments such as you experience on Earth. Also aging is no longer an issue, as you maintain a young and mature form for as long as you desire.” (46)
SaLuSa encourages us to:
“Look at us, as that is where you will eventually be as far as your evolution is concerned. We are always seen as an example of bodily perfection, and in our prime. In fact we can be 100’s of years old without any visible signs of aging, because it is not part of our experience.” (47)
“That applies to you as a Being of Light and your own Light body will carry none of the imperfections that you may have had whilst on Earth. Can you imagine a body that carrues no ills or disease, and maintains its condition at all times simply through taking sustenance from the air?
“We are examples of what you can look forward to when you rise up and you will never see us as aged as we always retain our youthful looks.” (48)
“You are in essence ageless, and it is only in the lower dimensions that you put on your physical body that has a limited life span, and you experience death. Even that is only an illusion, as you are immortal.” (49)
Apparently, after ascension, we will return to the prime of life and all disabled limbs and incapacities will be healed.
Certainly these are not features of sahaja samadhi. So this lack of hunger, illness, disabilities, ageing, and death is another reason why I describe ascension as “enlightenment plus.”
Only Ascension Separates the Dark from the Light
It is true to say that people after death must go to the plane of existence that their actions merit. Some go to planes of light and some to planes of darkness. (50) The same is the case with ascension.
But it is not the case with enlightenment. After sahaja, the sage may still be surrounded by criminals and rogues. Robbers actually attacked and beat Sri Ramana, though the assault did not disturb him.
Upon ascending, I am led to believe that we will find that rogues cannot follow us and this is another feature of ascension that makes it different from enlightenment and another “plus.”
As Matthew Ward points out, prior to ascension, the increasing light will force dark ones to leave the planet.
“As planetary vibrations continue to rise, [the dark ones] will leave; their physical bodies cannot survive without the light that they refuse to accept, and the souls will go to worlds that correspond to their lifetime energy registration.” (51)
“As Earth rises into higher densities where the light is more intense, the dark ones—puppets of the dark forces—will embrace the light or their physical bodies will die and the souls automatically will be drawn to worlds where the energy density matches the energy of the physical lifetime. (52)
Even these individuals, SaLuSa indicates, will receive loving attention.
“There are of course souls who have slipped so low in their vibrations, that it is difficult to turn their attention to the Light and all it has to offer. Yet at any time they can turn their lives around, and when they do many Beings of Light accompany them for the rest of their journey.” (53)
Others who are not rogues may simply choose not to ascend because their fixed beliefs turn them against the idea. They may choose to remain in 3D. Says SaLuSa of them:“Naturally you are at varying stages of evolution, and some of you do not feel at all attracted to the idea of Ascension.” (54)
Matthew admits that “it is sad to see the ones who chose to complete third-density karmic lessons now choosing to be stuck in that density instead of joyously accompanying Earth on her journey. We do not fault these souls and we love them no less, but it is sad.” (55)
SaLuSa adds that “those who by choice will decline the chance to ascend will continue in the lower dimension. Some of you will follow their progress because of your links with them, and may also act as guides to aid their spiritual advancement.” (56)
The separation between the ascenders and non-ascenders will take place gradually. As SaLuSa explains:
“Changes will take you nearer to completion, and gradually there will be a clear line between those who desire to ascend, and those who have declined the opportunity. This is inevitable and therefore fully expected, and the consequences of the incoming higher vibrations that lift those of the Light even higher.” (57)
Matthew suggests that there will not be a sudden die-off.
“Individuals who do not absorb sufficient light to ascend with Earth will not leave en masse. The time of physical death will be in accordance with the amount of light in each body, and dying can be the result of any of the current causes such as disease, drowning, vehicle crashes, suicide, fires, and earthquakes. No one in your world can consciously know which souls departed because of insufficient light and which transitioned in accordance with their soul contracts.” (58)
On another occasion he further explains that some who leave may do so because their mission is completed. Others may sink deeper into a more dense environment.
“There will be souls whose lifetime choices automatically will take them to first or second density placements; and at the other end of the spectrum are the souls who came from fourth, fifth and higher density worlds specifically to assist Earth in her ascension—when their mission is completed, they will return to their homelands. (59)
In another talk, Matthew amplifies his discussion of the range of destinations of people who leave at this time.
“Absorbing light requires ones at the negative end of duality to change from violence to peacefulness, from greed to generosity, corruption to honor, unjustness to fairness, anger to reason, oppression to freedom. The bodies of those who refuse to stop the negative behavior that boosted them into powerful positions will die, and the souls will go to worlds where the energy is the same as those persons generated during their physical lifetime.
“But please do not think that all who leave the planet from now on will do so for that reason! Souls who came from advanced civilizations, some as walk-ins and others born into Earth families, to assist you in this tumultuous time will return to their own worlds when they complete their missions.
“Many Earth residents will fulfill their soul contracts wherein they chose to complete third-density karmic experiences, and, after a lifetime in spirit, they will reincarnate in fourth density, if not back on Earth, then another advanced world.
“Others will petition at soul level to leave early because life circumstances are far harsher than their contract selections; after completing their contracts in spirit life, their next physical lifetime also will be in a fourth-density world.
“When the truth about religious dogmas emerges, many will choose at soul level to leave; later they will embody in a third-density world where their beliefs can remain intact until once again the truth emerges about religions’ false teachings, and they will have another opportunity to open their minds and accept that truth.” (60)
While not going so far as to predict a sudden die-off, the ascended master Hilarion said a year ago that the time of separation had already started and we could expect to see many leave in the months ahead. Each departure will have been by choice.
“There will be many who choose to leave the Earth plane at this time and in the months ahead but that is through the choices that they made. Each who is upon the Earth plane at this time has chosen to be here, to be a part of this Great Awakening and the great change that is happening and those who are leaving and will continue to leave, are those Souls who have chosen not to experience the days ahead. All is as was chosen by each Soul.” (61)
Meanwhile, ascenders will find themselves drawn to each other by the Law of Attraction. Says SaLuSa:
“It is a very personal journey and no two are alike, but you will normally gravitate towards those who have a similar level of consciousness.” (62)
“The Law of Attraction will always lead you to those souls that resonate as you do. It also happens to some degree on Earth now, but it is not so noticeable as you give little thought as to why you are attracted to certain people more than others.” (63)
The White Winged Collective Consciousness of Nine, in late 2008, explained that ascenders were already seeking each other out and finding each other.
“The electromagnetic energies of the connected ones now extend far beyond the human body – connecting and blending with others of like mind – of like vibration and connecting with the electro-magnetic frequencies of the planet.” (64)
So this contention that the planet’s population will separate into ascenders and non-ascenders is also not a situation associated with enlightenment. Always, when an individual became enlightened, he or she still mingled with light and dark individuals. But when a person ascends now, he or she will leave behind the dark remnant and go forward into a world where greedy, hate-filled, and violent individuals cannot follow.
This second part of this article has looked at elements unique to ascension, elements that make ascension “enlightenment plus.” It has identified several, which explain how very much more satisfying ascension will be than enlightenment, as wonderful as the latter is.
I personally take the words of the masters of ascension seriously and have begun to prepare myself for this fast-approaching event, for the most part by completing unfinished business so there will be no resistance to ascension. The advantages to the individual make ascension a unique opportunity.
