We talk about Ascension as if it were an “Event.”
There are events that are components of Ascension, but Ascension itself is not a single event, but a process comprised of several events.
I recently quoted Archangel Michael on the matter. For me, the quote is appropriate to all of us:
“You have been given bite-sized pieces of energy, of energy bumps, of input of what you can digest and handle and truly bring to fruition. If you are in the process of expansion, you don’t go from Grade 3 to a PhD in a week.” (1)
In my opinion, we’re all of us being given “bite-sized pieces of energy, of energy bumps, of input of what you can digest and handle and truly bring to fruition.” As a world, we don’t go from Grade 3 to a Ph.D. in a week.
We go up Jacob’s Ladder of Consciousness, one step at a time. The Kundalini mounts the sushumna canal and, at various stops along the way, we experience progressively-deeper instances of enlightenment. We experience:
- Stream entering or spiritual awakening when the Kundalini reaches the fourth chakra.
- Cosmic consciousness or savikalpa samadhi (trance condition with forms) when it reaches the sixth
- God-Realization or Brahmajnana (trance condition without forms; i.e., transcendental) when it reaches the seventh.
- Ascension proper or Sahaja Samadhi (full and permanent heart opening, trance condition in natural state) when it goes beyond the chakra system and opens the heart aperture or hridayam permanently.
These are steps on the ladder, the stairway to heaven, the celestial staircase. But there is a ladder, stairway, or staircase. We don’t suddenly leap from the ground floor to the second floor like the incredible Hulk. Not yet, anyways.
The Arcturian Group put the case succinctly:
“The world is moving into a new and higher energy but cannot do it overnight nor can an exact date be determined because the consciousness of mankind is creating it. There is a great deal of assistance to Earth at this time from the higher dimensional realms, but free will determines that mankind must do the work.
“The third dimension is a dimension of time and space. If an individual were to suddenly be infused with the fullness of high dimensional energy their physical body would not be able to handle it and would die.
“Spiritual evolution is a gradual awakening into higher awareness through experience, receptivity to change, and the acceptance of one’s innate personal power.” (2)
Archangel Michael confirmed their assertions:
“What you want is the full wave and you will get it. But the Mother is preparing people for it so that they do not end up completely overwhelmed.” (3)
Blossom’s Federation of Light agree:
“Deep within your Being … you are so much more than you are able to recognize at this stage of The Game.
“The unraveling process is a slow one, for it needs to be…. As more and more of ‘Self’ is FELT and acknowledged, then more and more ‘Enlightenment’ can be more and more forthcoming.” (4)
We speak about “the Event” the way we speak about “the Reval.” It focuses things and makes them easier to handle.
I think it’s basic to the human condition, as it is at present, to want to arrive at a single notion that encapsulates many events. But that practice is counterproductive if and when it obscures the events it encapsulates.
“The Event” can obscure the many events that comprise the whole of what “Ascension” points to.
Ascension is a slow expansion, marked by several enlightenment events, culminating in one door-opening event. However we cannot get to that door opener without first going through the other experiences or events.
