Ascension Symptoms

The old adage of 'a problem shared is a problem halved' comes to mind as I post this.  If, like me and thousands of others, you have been feeling a 'bit weird' lately mentally, emotionally or physically, you will no doubt find solace in understanding that your consciousness is expanding, your body is changing to a less dense structure, and you are ascending into the next dimensional level. Therefore all is well!





ASCENSION SYMPTOMS:

1. Physical:


  • High degree of stress, anxiety – but no apparent reason for this. The New energy is coming in and pushing old patterns, beliefs, behaviors to the surface for release.
  • Extreme exhaustion/fatigue – due to our bodies transforming into a crystalline structure to reside in higher dimension – becoming less dense – this takes an incredible amount of energy
  • Adrenal stress, blow-out or fatigue – may be occuring at varying degrees depending upon where you are on your journey, how you run and process energy and stress, sleep you are getting and foods you are eating.
  • Sleeplessness
  • Inability to wake up or periods of deep sleeping – rest period after a lot of energy has come in, preparing for another period of intense inflow of energy, processing another leap in expansion or vibration
  • Waking up at odd hours – or waking up at the same time on the clock each night
  • Neck pain/stiffness
  • Foot pain, lower leg pain, stiffness and aching – ‘old man syndrome’ – i.e., feeling the need to shuffle along while you walk or barely able to walk or move – all due to grounding onto the new earth and taking in the new energies into the body via the feet and legs
  • Low and mid-back pain and discomfort – sometimes severe – often between the shoulder blades – also known as ‘sprouting the angel wings’
  • Night sweats/hot flashes – mock menopause, burning off the lower and denser aspects of ourselves and dark energies
  • Feeling cold with inability to get warm
  • Sinus pressure/headaches/migraines and lots of congestion – opening of crown chakra to allow intake of more energy and greater connection to higher realms, activation of pineal and pituitary glands to increase intuitive and psychic abilities
  • Joint and muscle aches, pain and stiffness
  • Loss of memory – short term – what did I just do, say, eat, read, can’t remember appointments, commitments, etc. – longer term – can’t remember what you did, said, wore last week or last month.
  • Lack of ability to concentrate/lack of focus
  • Loss of appetite
  • OR Feeling ravenous/hungry all the time or at certain times – craving for sweets
  • Need to eat often – craving for protein
  • Weight gain – abdominal area – need to expand our being to carry more weight as we are becoming so light we need to ground ourselves on the earth and not float away – also a way to create a layer of “protection” so to speak around our power charkas – from the lower vibrating energies when we interact with them
  • OR weight loss – no longer need to “hold on” to extra weight or our bodies have adapted to the expansion and so do not need to be literally bigger to hold more light – can do it energetically.
  • Digestive/digestive tract issues – constipation, loose stool, stomach upset/discomfort/pain, bloating and indigestion, inability to properly digest food – due to your vibration and the vibration of the food you are consuming no longer aligning, the cleansing and clearing out of your system of all lower vibrating ‘poop’ you have been carrying around – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, as well as preparation of you ‘Gut’ to begin to take on the role of the ‘Golden Stove’ or area of purification where you can literally cleanse yourself from any dark, toxic or negative energies that may be experienced either externally in your environements or created internally by you
  • Tastes in food change – for example you may notice you lose a taste for and stop eating meat
  • Eating certain kinds of foods – particularly processed and foods with high amounts of sugar (even natural sugar), salt and fat – causes you to shake – inside and out
  • Allergies – new ones develop or acting up of current or old ones
  • Strange rashes
  • Itchy skin – sometimes feels like something crawling on your skin
  • Intermittent muscle twitching – in limbs, fingers, etc.
  • Heart pain and palpitations – feels like your heart is racing – acclimating to higher and more intense energies, opening and activating of heart chakra
  • Difficulty breathing – difficult to take a deep breath or like you can’t catch your breath
  • Blurred vision – seeing with new eyes in the new vibration, inability to see what is next or see your truth or true self as it emerges
  • Dizziness/Vertigo/Loss of Balance
  • Feeling out of body, not grounded, not present, untethered, spacey , not ‘here’ anymore – walking between two worlds or dimensions or in new dimension and not fully present to it
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Loss of ability to (remember how to) write/write certain words/spell/speak and even comprehend – due to jumping back and forth between dimensions, disconnect – not aligned with time – part of you is here and part of you has jumped to the other dimension
  • Heightened sensitivity to sound, light and smell, energies around you – tuning up your frequency/vibration
  • Things no longer sounding normal – have a ‘tinny’, hollow or strange sound to them
  • “Ascension Flu”
  • Buzzing, Vibrating sensation or feeling of electricity moving through your body – new and higher energies being taken in to the body, process of expansion, activation of chakras, solar discs, your solar light body and shifting of your DNA
  • Hair turning gray or white in a localized spot on your head – for example a dollar-sized spot appearing at the crown

2. Emotional:

  • Depression – clearing out negative lower vibrating energies
  • Panic
  • Anxiety
  • Confusion
  • Lack of Clarity
  • Fear, terror
  • Feelings of hysteria
  • Suicidal
  • Weeping
  • Apathy – feeling blah
  • Sometimes feeling nothing at all – in a place of no feeling – can be disconcerting but this is a clear space and often comes just before or after a major transition point and before we put our human/ego labels on or in to what we are feeling or should be feeling – this is not the same as numb or disassociated/disconnected
  • Feeling of emptiness – another form of this no feeling or nothingness – feeling nothing – no thing and often comes with desire to immediately fill oneself up – usually with food – sugar – or with tasks – “doingness”
  • Restlessness
  • Strong emotional ups and downs
  • Wild, sometimes violent and vivid dreams
  • Lack of motivation or ambition – just don’t feel like doing anything at all – we are in a period of rest – we are realigning – this is part of being in the New Vibration or higher dimensions as needing to make things happen or in the ‘doing’ state is no longer necessary – we are squarely in the state of ‘BE’ing

3. Mental/Psychological:
  • Loss of identity – releasing of the ego self/facets and human form – connecting more to soul or higher self and God-source
  • Lack of purpose
  • Loss of motivation, drive, ambition
  • Not knowing what you like anymore – with respect to things, jobs, people, even your taste in food, style of clothing, etc.
  • Loss of self
  • Lots of losses or disappearance of – job, money, relationships, health, family members/friends, – moving beyond what no longer aligns with our vibration – needing to clear out or clear away what no longer vibrates at the same frequency in order to move on or up to next level
  • Feeling of loss of entire support structure
  • Feeling the absolute ‘End’ of things is here or that things are ‘over’ or the energy is just dead and you don’t have the ability to or interest in reinvigorating them – for example, relationships/friendships, unsatisfying jobs, where you live, how you have typically have done things or operated in your life, what you think, feel believe, etc.
  • Inability to find or remember words for things, forget what you were saying in the middle of your sentence,
  • Basically feeling like you are going crazy



4. Spiritual/Vibrational/Energetic:
  • Feeling of emptying out or being emptied out or clearing out
  • Religious beliefs may change or break down or fall away
  • Morals and values may be thrown into question
  • Ego bucks, pushes back as it releases and makes way for the soul wisdom to step forward
  • Disconnection from any structured sense of Time – don’t know what time it is – no relationship to it, forget/miss appointments, can’t keep track of time and no desire to or to be constrained by it, sense of being in timeless space or stuck in time, sense of time racing by – due to now being in the time of no time or timelessness
  • Letting go of being Ego-centric and living from the head governed by logical/practical thinking and ‘doingness’
  • ‘Disconnects’ and breakdowns begin to occur everywhere in your life: with relationships and people – old friends fall away or move out of your life suddenly or you may end a marriage or partnership; with circumstances and situations – you may leave or lose a job that is no longer a vibrational match or in alignment with your current frequency or you may move from your current location
  • and with technology – you may experience technical issues with your computer or cell phone – you may find they go off line, can’t find a signal or simply melt down; your landline may have static when you speak with people who do not hold the same energetic space; you may experience computers going down or operating very slowly when you are in the vicinity – like in a store or when you call a customer support line; batteries drain more quickly – e.g., fire or CO2 detectors, flashlights, cellphones, etc.; other electronic devices or electrical machinery begin breaking down or burning out – all of this due to both your own increasing vibration and the inability of the frequency of who and what is around you to align and/or keep up.

5. Other:
  • Sudden change/s occurring – big and small – that can cause major upheaval if we are not grounded – e.g., change/s in plans in general – or specifically everywhere in life – at work, with projects, in relationship status/marriage/friendships, with clients, where we live, our health, etc.
  • No desire to wear jewelry – or a feeling of constriction when wearing it
  • Tastes change – taste in food, clothes, furniture, style etc.



6. Positive Symptoms!
  • Heightened awareness
  • Intuition opens and deepens – more in touch with heart – can hear own truth, can read situations with increased perception, clarity and knowing, psychic abilities also open or enhance
  • At a certain point – more willing to listen to self and trust self
  • Start to look younger – and feel younger
  • Experience spontaneous healings – of both new and longstanding ailments
  • Loss of fear of death/dying
  • Releasing/Loss of ego – healing of past wounds
  • Getting off wheel of karma – completing our past
  • Being unattached to outcomes or results
  • Less focus on ego’s concerns – money, worries, “what ifs” – the deeper soul knowing takes over and trusts all is well –you’re your higher voice tells you these concerns aren’t really important anyway as you will have evolved beyond them in the New vibration
  • More focused on what is REALLY important in life
  • Start to follow path of Soul Purpose and calling
  • Willing to take more risks regardless of external circumstances and fear
  • Take on or seek a slower pace of life
  • More internally focused and inspired than externally driven
  • Move away from isolated individual and competitiveness to unity and collaboration with others
  • Living in the Now moment and being Present based
  • Now living fully from the Heart governed by Heart Wisdom, intuitive/energetic sensing and ‘BE’ingness
  • Able to manifest immediately what is most desired and aligns with highest and best good and is in the interests of highest and best good of all
  • Easing of these symptoms as you move through this process and a renewed energy emerging
  • More attunement, comfort with and trust of the Intuition and ‘gut’/Heart-based decision making and processing
  • Prosperity, Abundance and Flow are effortlessly available if we can remain in the Now Moment and keep our vibration pure.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP YOURSELF

Recently I have experienced quite a few of these issues myself so I speak from experience when I say 'just go with the flow, say to yourself  "this too will pass", rest if necessary, stay in hara, be assured all is well'.

To ensure you stay in Hara so that the energy keeps flowing to aid change as quickly as possible you are invited to download my Haric Alignment meditation.

ETHERIC HEALTH WARNING

A lot of evolutionary and ascension activity is taking place during the hours of sleep therefore it is important that we honour our needs to get enough quality sleep.

Most people know that cell phone radiation is bad for them. Hence they use loudspeaker mode or earphones instead of holding the phone to the head. However just recently I have been asking clients and friends if they sleep with their cell phones close to them at night. Most people answer in the affirmative especially if they use the phone alarm to awaken in the morning.

Cell phones disturb the Etheric Body. The Etheric body is very active during the hours of sleep when its job is to repair, regenerate, and heal the physical body. Sleeping within close range of your cell phone actively prevents this natural nightly healing. In fact sleeping with a phone in the aura can create energetic problems which in time will reflect on a physical level as fatigue, or even dis-ease. Plus of course your ascension process will be hampered.

Putting the cell in Airplane mode if it must be in the bed room solves the problem and the alarm function still works.

April 2015 - an energetic preview

Previewing April 2015


April energy will be calmer, more expansive and more acutely attuned than last month.  The Heart and Third eye chakras are the focus.

March was super intense and you probably had some really big highs or some really intense lows. The propulsive energy of March forced background issues in your life to rise to the surface to be resolved. (see my previous blog http://ritamarr.blogspot.com/2015/04/the-third-blood-moon.html)  

The base chakra and the throat chakra were the focus of the clear out.  March energy was pushing up from the base (survival) through the sacral (relationships) into the Solar Plexus (self esteem) and after that kind of clear out we need to calm the energy system down and allow the integration and unfolding of the changes wrought by the clear out.



Everything in the Universe has a rhythm and everything flows rather than remains static.  That is why when we are on a 'low' we can say 'this too will pass' to help ourselves stay hopeful.  When we are on a 'high' we must avoid falling into the trap of wanting it to last forever and being angry because it cannot.

Heart and Third Eye Chakra focus


April clearing will be heart and third eye focused.  Your Heart and third eye chakras are going to be opening this month. So anything stopping them opening will come up for release.



The residual throat issues from last month may be prompting issues regarding communication. You may be feeling - do I want to communicate or not?  I started to feel that energy on the 2nd April and started to write again.  I had been very quiet in March.  In fact had not time or energy to write due to flu.  I lost my voice the last week of March.  Now the motivation to share and express is back.  So if you were quiet and reflective in March you may find your voice again in April or vice versa.  Your throat chakra will determine.

Take care of self and others in equal measure


Taking care of self and others in equal measure is crucial in April but for different reasons that it was in March.  You will feel and increased sensitivity to atmospheres and energies this month as the third eye opens wider.

Your heart will prompt you to take care of yourself and make space for ‘being’ rather than frantic ‘doing’.



We mostly work too hard and do too much because of the inner taskmaster voice that prompts us.  Well after the hard work of March you need to take it easier in April.  Ideal time for a holiday, short getaway break,  or re-assessment of your career if you are not happy in your work or feel unappreciated by your boss.



Self Worth in the spotlight


And note - Self worth is coming up for re assessment!   Time to check your boundaries!  Stop putting other peoples needs before your own.  March gave you a warning on that score and April will keep you on track whether you want it or not.



Your ability to manifest or not will give you an indicator of your self worth.  Do you feel deserving of receiving what you want to create?  Do you hand over a problem to the Universe then trust or do you hand it over then grab it back untrustingly?

Integrity and trust


April energies will prompt you to be honest with yourself.  And to let go of what has ceased to serve you.   It will show you its time to stop worrying about other people’s opinions and trusting yourself to know what is right for you.

Opening the heart always brings up issues around vulnerability and safety.  Trust is the antidote.  An open heart with no walls around it is the safest place because walls can be torn down.   Surrender to the protection of the Divine and all will be well.  No one can really hurt you emotionally except yourself.   Surrender rather than attempt to control and drive.  A suggested affirmation is 

"I surrender my small personal will to Divine Will.



So with an open heart, more authentic vulnerability, more sensitivity and feeling, and a greater ability to just ‘be’ your perception will change.  Expect a few ‘Wow’ and ‘Ah Ha’ moments and make time to have them!



Go well.

The Third Blood Moon


The Total Lunar Eclipse April 4th – 12:05pm UT

Theme :The integration of self and other. Balance, Fairness and Consideration



Thanks to Astrophotographer Sally McGuire who created this composite image of the first tetrad eclipse in April last year, taken in Long Creek, near Decatur, Illinois USA

The first of four consecutive total eclipses (known as a tetrad) of so called Blood Moons (where the moon appears red for the same reasons sunsets appear red) happened on April 15, 2014, a second one took place on October 8, 2014, the third will be on Saturday April 4, 2015 with the fourth and final one on September 28, 2015. A Tetrad is very symbolic of transformational change.


My own recent 6 week Journey 




In the last week of February I underwent a small medical procedure to help my eyesight with a ptosis repair. It was long overdue but my Higher Self had told me 3 weeks beforehand to ‘just do it’. I needed time to recuperate afterwards so had a week of rest at home till the stitches came out and I’d stopped looking like I’d been in a boxing ring and lost the fight.

Then on March 6th I booked myself into a 7 day Spa Retreat to focus on more recuperation, self healing, cleansing, meditation, massage, hydrotherapy, yoga, exercising, journalling, regenerating and detoxing on mental, emotional and physical levels. Big shifts.   





I got home on the 13th to face the single most personally challenging family crisis ever. It lasted a week and the negative psychic shock waves from the family member in question just kept coming my way afterwards. It had taken almost my entire life to come to a head! It took all my strength to deal with the psychic attack. No doubt the exact Uranus Pluto square on March 17th 2015 was very involved. Uranus is inventive, unexpected, revolutionary future change and and Pluto strips away the old (symbolised by the Phoenix rising from the Ashes). No hiding place from that energy.

Plus my personal physical bio rythym was on its way down for two weeks to its lowest ebb on March 29th.( check your bio-rythym here http://www.biorhythm-calculator.net).

So my immune system was low because of the stress and no surprise I succumbed to a virus and I’ve been sick in bed with flu and exhaustion for two weeks.




Re-Birth


I was feeling a little better today and said to myself :

‘I want to fully understand exactly whats been going on astrologically in March because this has been one of the most challenging and yet empowering times of my life’. 

The transformative energies have been coming at us thick and fast and we have been forced to acquiesce to our Soul’s and our Creator’s determination to upgrade us a step nearer to becoming a galactic human with full consciousness. Sometimes when we understand in hindsight why things happen we realise how in sync we are with the solar system and our Mother Earth’s evolutionary journey.



The end of a 6 week section of our 3 year long journey


The Full Moon Eclipse on Saturday April 4th at 12.05 UT (depending on time zone), will mark the end of a 6 week transformative journey. A small section of a 3 year long sojourn that began in June 2012 for us all. We have been prepared to move forward with Balance, Fairness and Consideration. In other words make a fresh start having gone through the birthing pains and exhaustion and come out the other side joyful for the re-birth.


Understanding what effect the Eclipse has on us




A Lunar Eclipse can only occur during a Full Moon. During a Full Moon, the Solar light of consciousness illuminates emotions that surface from deep within our unconscious. However, during a Lunar Eclipse, Earth stands in the way of this illumination. Hence, we are momentarily left immersed in total darkness, ie. in our newly surfaced emotions. Although this is only temporary, it can help to have some tools at hand to manage and contain the emotions that come to the surface, until the Moon moves out of the shadow of the Earth. In doing so, the Sun can shine once more onto our emotions enabling them to be consciously integrated.” 

Margaret Gray MSW D. Psych. Astrology

Because this eclipse is on the Libra/Aries axis the core theme is the integration and balance of ‘self’ and ‘other’. The big question of .......

“How can I be fair and just with others whilst respecting who I am?”


This emphasizes the theme of balance and fairness with others versus self-focus. Hence we are invited to be the peaceful civilized mediator rather than the uncouth warrior.


Acknowledging the Collective


Aries represents birth and individuation and Mars his ruler is the signifier of our life force and will to live. Libra represents balance and individual adaptation in our relationships with others. The integration of these two reminds us that both signs are deeply inter-connected . The journey of individuation is a basis for us to be in relationships with others, yet without relationships we cannot individuate.

Our will to live does not just affect us. It also deeply affects everyone else. So now we have crossed over into a new world where we are remembering that we are all connected with each other and where we all face the consequences of the choices we each make individually. Hence if we heal ourselves, we heal others and if we help others to heal, we heal ourselves and the earth.


The eclipse will be visible in certain areas only


This eclipse will be visible over western North America, the Pacific, East Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Therefore, although we will all feel it, if you live in these zones you are likely to be more affected both personally and collectively by the Eclipse energies. 

Earth Healing Opportunity


The Earth is also able to use this time to release all the toxins she holds because of the abuse she suffers so weather patterns and tidal conditions will reflect her attempts at healing.


Still more transformation to come


This present eclipse season continues until April 19th 2015 and the Tetrad ends on September 28th 2015.


What can we do to help ourselves?


Margaret Grey suggests we ask ourselves : 


  1. What parts of my psyche did I reconstruct over the past three years? 
  2. What emotions did I suppress/repress/disassociate from during this time?
  3. How have I expanded during this time? 
  4. What parts of my life are ready to come into greater balance? 
  5. Is my life based on consideration for others as well as for myself? 
  6. What provides healthy comfort for me at this time? 
  7. What is the core focus on a heart and soul level of this new chapter of my life? 

And Margaret’s suggested ‘Tools to work with’ during this Full Moon time and throughout the rest of the month of April: 

  • Lots of rest and relaxation with the help of Venus and Mars in Taurus as we recuperate on all levels from the past 3 years. 
  • Time in nature to rejuvenate and rebalance. 
  • Allowing emotions to surface and dissipate. Music, dancing, crying, journaling, talking etc can all help in the process and also act as containers. 
  • Meditation and body work to quieten the mind 
  • Paying attention to diet and avoiding excesses. Noticing if you are using food/alcohol/substances in an attempt to suppress emotions. 
  • Spend time with loved ones who uplift you 
  • Physical comfort can feel particularly nurturing at this time with Venus in Earthy Taurus 

This is certainly what I have been encouraged to do for the past 6 weeks purely intuitively and so I heartily recommend Margaret’s advice. It is crucial that you become cognisant of your personal physical needs that may have been put on hold in order to satisfy the needs of others. Fulfilling these needs is very important right now and includes rest and relaxation, bodily attention such as massages, spa days, healthy eating, hugs, exercise and whatever else can help your body recuperate.
