Dear Jennifer: Things in my life have not been going well for the past 3 or 4 years. Then about a month ago I decided to take control of these situations by setting intentions for what I wanted and my life started getting better. A friend of mine said that I’m going through the ascension process. Now I am in a lot of stress and discomfort, and I feel stuck somewhere in between my old life and my new life. What is going on and why didn’t I keep the feeling of being in control and watching my life get better?
Jennifer’s Answer: You are not doing anything wrong and it would be nice if this process was linear, we started at the beginning and then we were at the end and it was all over. But our transformation, evolution, and ascension are not linear, they are part of the evolutionary spiral that takes us around the same issues, always at different levels, so we can make the necessary adjustments in our energy, beliefs and thoughts, to integrate the energy into our lives. What you are feeling is part of this process and because you are in between worlds, you are in a powerful place to make new choices, although that is not how you feel right now and I’ll explain why.
Our life path is based on what we choose from all of the potentials and possibilities that are available to us in each moment. There are no better or worse choices and we cannot make choices that we aren’t ready for, meaning that we are not aligned with. And each step forward we make, as we choose something new for our lives, we bring all of our life energy and experiences with us into that choice. And this is where you are now.
You feel the stress and discomfort because you are in between both worlds, your old life and the new one. You have made choices you are not fully integrated with yet and whose energies do not fit well together and with what is currently in your life. Now you have to make the even more uncomfortable choices of discovering and then releasing the things that no longer have a place in your life, according to the energy of your new choices. So the stress isn’t over yet but it will lessen once you have decided which path you want to take, how you are going to integrate this energy, which includes receiving and releasing, and start to integrate and resonate with these new choices.
Just so you know, this will happen each time you make a shift in your choices that aligns you with new potentials. You have to decide what you are going to allow into your life, how comfortable you are with it, and make decisions about how you will align with it and identify what does not resonate with it. Then you will release those things, people, situations, beliefs, emotions, thoughts and energy, that are not aligned with your new potential, which is the uncomfortable part. It won’t be so uncomfortable in the future because you will be more familiar with the process.
And this is part of a big life lesson for you too, there are many karmic issues around you not being in charge of your life, giving your energy and power away to others and then what happens when you stop doing that and take your power back. It is a little uncomfortable for you to learn to say no, to have your own power and to be in control of your life but because this is what you have decided to do, it is time for you to experience your life from this perspective. Be gentle with yourself, take this one step at a time and trust your guidance and inner knowing because it will help lead you to the joy you seek.
