I’d heard that Ascension was related to a solar event and asked Archangel Michael about the subject in my last reading:
Steve: Is Ascension, like some people say, going to be a solar event? Is there going to be something happening from the sun?
AAM: No, it is not related to the sun. It is only related to the sun within you. (1)
That set me to looking and I came across the following discussion from midsummer 2019 on the progress and mechanics of Ascension, which I offer for your enjoyment
Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Aug. 2, 2019.
Steve: My suspicion is that as a global society we’re not yet ready for Sahaja Samadhi. (2) Is that correct?
Archangel Michael: You are not quite there. That is correct.
Steve: Is it possible to talk about where the collective kundalini is?
AAM: Once we have talked about the collective unconscious and how that has determined much of the progression, and how it is accessed and how it is not accessed, how the collective consciousness also, has grown and shifted and varied.
So when we speak of this, it is important that people understand it, not just you, beloved one….
Because the difficulty arises when we speak of such things that people will often translate as them applicable to their own personal situation.
And while that has implications for the personal situation, it does not necessarily speak to the individual. So we give that proviso.
The collective kundalini has been worked on, as you well know, quite literally, for thousands and thousands of years. So to say that it is a slow process would be a dramatic understatement.
Understand if you look particularly towards the east and all the work that has been done not only in India but Tibet and in the mystery schools of ancient times, much of this was always about raising the life force, the kundalini, through awareness, to travel completely not only up the spine but throughout the body and outward.
And much of the individual work, small pockets of work that were done by [tantra], for example, was again part of the work that was done on the collective kundalini.
Right now the focus of the collective kundalini is in the sacral (that does not mean it does not oscillate up and down) because the focus of the kundalini at this time is in the sacral and in the solar plexus, in the hara.
So that the beginning, the remembering and the bringing forth of creation energy can truly be in the forefront. This is the biggest shift that the human collective is experiencing.
Steve: Are you waiting until the collective kundalini reaches a certain point before you pull a switch, say in this case, of the heart opening but in other cases, ascension itself?
AAM: Yes and no. Understand also (you are having a yes-and-no day, are you not?) So think of the kundalini as an old-fashioned mercury thermometer.
And so there are periods of time during the day when the thermometer will go very high and it is anchored therefore in the heart chakra. And that is where the focus of the awakened being is.
But that also means on the travel upward that it activates fully the awareness, the desire and the actual physical ability to create and co-create. So does everybody (the collective) need to be in the heart chakra or higher, even in the high heart? That would be preferable.
But there is a tipping point at which it is sufficient to pull the switch.

(2) “Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi” is a full and permanent heart opening. It’s an experience that lies beyond the Third-Dimensional chakra system and ushers in passage from the Third/Fourth Dimension to the Fifth.
