We continue our discussion of Ascension with a look at the gradual and sudden aspects of it.
Ascension is both gradual and sudden
You are already having these subtle upgrades. And you have been for some time. …
The subtle upgrades will continue and then there will be the “blink of an eye.” (1) (“Universal Mother: Your Family is the Legions of Light, June 18, 2013, Part 1/2,” at https://goldenageofgaia.com/2013/06/universal-mother-your-family-is-the-legions-of-light-june-18-2013-part-12/#more-182555.)
(1) The “blink of an eye” (actually there is more than one) consists of seventh-chakra enlightenment, called Brahmajnana, and a permanent heart opening, called Sahaja Samadhi. These will be discussed later in this serries.
What are the sudden aspects?
Can this occur in the blink of an eye? Yes. Has it? Well, for some of you it actually has. That switch went on and you said, “Ah, I get it. I am it.” (“The Divine Mother: We are Creating a New Species of Humans,” channeled by Linda Dillon, July 10, 2014, at https://goldenageofgaia.com/2014/07/12/the-divine-mother-we-are-creating-a-new-species-of-humans/.)
It is that feeling — well, it is more than a feeling; it is knowing; it is ignition — it is that feeling that you have been switched on to a different frequency, and it happens suddenly. You may be working at it, working at it, working at it, and then you wake up one morning, and you see, perceive, feel, know different. (“The Divine Mother: We are Creating a New Species of Humans,” channeled by Linda Dillon, July 10, 2014, at https://goldenageofgaia.com/2014/07/12/the-divine-mother-we-are-creating-a-new-species-of-humans/.)
What are the gradual aspects?
Remember, your whole system has been previously geared to maintain status quo at all costs, and as such, it will have more than one reason to rebel in the days and indeed nights ahead as this huge shift continues to unfold. For this is, as always, a gradual process, for if not, it would simply render you all unable to cope at all.
For this is not merely a superficial change, this is something that goes deep down into your very core, and indeed, the exact same goes for your whole planet. So as things start to shift, much will be set into motion, and we do mean that both in a physical and indeed a less concrete but still just as powerful way. (“The Constant Companions: The Manuscript of Survival – Part 407,” channeled by Aisha North, March 31, 2014 at https://aishanorth.wordpress.com.)
Spiritual evolution is a gradual unfolding process, as an unprepared physical body could not survive an intense sudden intake of higher frequency energy – they would be incapable of handling it. The profound experiences that some indeed may have, are the fruit of an attained state of consciousness – hard work done in previous lifetimes. (Arcturian Group Message, September 15, 2013, at https://www.onenessofall.com/.)
The Fall did not happen as has been depicted through the Bible and mythology. It occurred gradually over a great period of time and its opposite, the Ascension and rising up of humanity, will also occur gradually for the collective. Thus follow the grand cycles of the Universe, in their vast sweep of ‘time’ far beyond the ken of most individuals. However, those who are in touch with their own multidimensionality can ‘see’ into these cycles and know that change will come. (“The Angels: The Choice to Live in Joy is Yours,” channeled through Tazjima, July 14, 2013 at https://bluedragonjournal.com.)
It is all just stair-steps really, and how fast you go is dependent on your contracts and individual physical capability of holding the Light that you truly are, of course, but also on your ability to let go of attachments to the 3rd dimensional concepts of yesteryear. … As you sense and experience the freedom that comes from letting go of all attachments and beliefs and issues and fears that bring you back to your old way of living and thinking, like a tether attached to you, you will have the means and ability to soar even higher. (“Mary Magdalene: You Are All Exalted Beings of the Light,” channeled by Fran Zepeda, September 29, 2013 at https://franheal.wordpress.com/.)
By now, you have already passed a multitude of steps on this ”stairway to heaven” if we may use such a description, and we gather you will all get a kick out of looking back down to where you came from. Is it not a long drop down, and have you not mastered so much to get to this lofty vantage point already?
And please trust us when we say that even if you think we will once again ask you to muster whatever patience you might have left – for we will – let us also tell you that if you could see just how few steps there are ahead, we know you would all eagerly rush up those last enticing steps in a great hurry to get you all the way to the top.
Well, you might get more than a little out of breath if you do, so we suggest you keep up the pace you are already at. For this will serve you very well indeed, and it will not take you any longer to ”get to the top” anyway. For in this as in everything else, events will unfold at the designated time and at the designated sequence, so just follow your own inner voice and know that every step you do take, no matter how hard or high soft it feels, will take you the exact length that is intended. (“The Manuscript of Survival – Part 350,” channeled by Aisha North, September 5, 2013 at https://aishanorth.wordpress.com/.)
Will it be gradual for some and sudden for others?
For some, the awakening process will be gradual; for others, it will appear abrupt and sudden, but all are being prepared at inner levels for whatever will take place. Some persons have the capacity to adapt quickly, as they have integrated both the energies of flexibility and strength, so they can flow. Others, facing change and holding within more rigid structures of resistance and denial, will find their worlds, perhaps, suddenly shattered by physical circumstances.
Then change will be confronted and no longer resisted for the human spirit, although tested and tried, can thrive on adversity and move through fear with grace. When those things, habits and belongings, are taken away or are found to no longer serve the needs of the owner, then it is easy to let go. Whether change and challenges will be met with resistance or with grace is entirely up to each individual and group. (“Higher Self and the Light Collective: On Integration,” channeled through Tazjima, November 9, 2013 at https://bluedragonjournal.com.)
