What really is the "Ascension" anyway?

The Transformation

I queried people about the big transformation that we are going through. It has been called ascension, but I (and evidently others) don’t like that word. It has too many religious associations and makes me think of going up (no duh) out of our bodies. I remember my Dad was always waiting for Ashtar to “beam him up” out of this crummy physical reality. I have included the suggestions at the end of this article.

To me the transformational process isn’t about getting away from physical reality, it’s about embracing it fully at the same time being aware of our non-physical Infinite Being self. We are becoming multi-dimensional.

So I asked people what words they think describe the process. I also asked about what they have experienced and what they expected in the future. I got a lot of responses about descriptive words (quotes are at the end of this article) and many accounts about experiences, but no one told me what they expect. Perhaps no one has any expectations, or it could be that no one felt “qualified” to express their opinions. Either way, I guess it’s up to me to share what I expect will happen over the next few years.

Some of the words that describe the transformation are:

  • Remembering
  • Love
  • Awakening
  • Transformation
  • Being
  • Limitless
  • Metamorphosis
  • Multi-dimensional
  • Unity / Oneness / Being at One
  • Sovereignty
  • Freedom

To me it’s been about remembering that I am a multi-dimensional Limitless Being who is sovereign and at the same time at one with the Universe. My Limitless Being Self is inherently loved and lovable, valued and valuable, and there is nothing I have to do to earn love, as it is my natural state. At the same time, I am living in a physical reality that is still affected by the rules of the Old Reality. So my life might not look “perfect” from the point of view of physical reality, but that doesn’t affect the “perfection” of my Limitless Being. It is also about breaking free from the rules, belief systems and programming of the Old Reality.

  • Polarity: Left Brain / Right Brain Separation
  • Polarity: Higher / Lower, Good /  Bad etc,
  • No Choice (vs. being able to choose what you desire and change your choice if it no longer serves you)
  • Susceptibility (vs. Sovereignty)
  • Struggle and Effort (“You must work to live.”)
  • Learning through limitation (vs. learning through inspiration)
  • Emotional Roller Coaster Program (related to Susceptibility, energy stealing and drama)
  • Karma (ensures a variety of experiences)
  • Service Agreements and Vows

All of these things are part of the Earth Game in the Old Energy. We are in the process of releasing all of those limiting programs. We are also letting go of our definitions of self, such as being a healer, an intellectual, a nice person, etc. Some of the definitions are easy to release such as being the perpetual care-giver (exhausting!) or being less smart or unattractive. Other definitions are a little harder to release. These are the things that we have loved about ourselves and the things that have made us feel valuable in the past like being a good daughter or son.

One of the definitions that I cleared was being a good mother. I always knew I was going to have children. When I was about 16 years old, I had a dream in which I was at my 84th birthday party. I was surrounded by my children and grandchildren. I knew that I had broken/healed the patterns of dis-function and abuse in my family and started a new health, loving pattern that would be passed down through the generations that followed me.  I felt like it was my sacred work to be a good mother.

When my youngest was five years old, I divorced her father. Though he had spent very little time with her up until this point, he insisted on having her half time. She hated going to his house. I would literally have to drag her, sobbing to his front door. When she came back to my house, she would cry and tell me how much she hated her dad and would be very clingy. Being a good mother, I would give her lots of attention, mirror her when she cried so she could discharge all that emotion. And, of course, I never said anything bad about her dad. While I missed her when she was gone, I dreaded her return because it meant sometimes hours of devoting myself to her exclusively. I thought I had to do this to be a good mother.

I traded sessions with another facilitator and we did some work on my “good mother” rules. In a past life I had been a bad mother, leaving my children in the care of my sister while pursued my own interests. When I went back it was too late. They had all died. At the end of that life, I swore that I would never do that again, that I would always be a good mother from now on. During the session I was able to release the guilt, shame, grief and self-judgment about that experience. You could say that I forgave myself. And I un-created the decision that I made at the end of that life. This gave me the option now of being a bad mother, if I chose. This doesn’t mean that I had to be a bad mother, just that I now had choice.

The next day my daughter returned from her stay with her father. I dutifully gave her lots of attention, playing “Barbies” with her. I never played with dolls when I was a girl and I really don’t enjoy it. After and hour, I told her that I needed a break. She started to cry saying, “I hardly ever get to be with you and when I do, you won’t even play with me.” Previously, this would have triggered my guilt and I would have played longer even though I really did not want to. This time was different. I looked at her and said, “You’re really good at that.” Not with anger or sarcasm, but with a sudden awareness of her great skills as a manipulator. She looked away for a moment then looked back at me, grinning, and said, “I always have been.” Our relationship changed for the better at that moment. I wasn’t doing things that I resented because I though I should in order to be a good mother. My relationships with all three of my children improved after that. We started having more fun since I wasn’t always trying to do things “right” and get them to do things “right”.

So I guess the bottom line is that we are in the process of releasing polarity, good/bad, right/wrong etc. When we do that then we automatically let go of judgment, which allows us to feel lovable and valuable, exactly as we are right now, regardless of the “out picture”. And because we are still in the transition period, when the Old Reality is overlapping the New Reality, we are pretty much guaranteed that the out picture will not be perfect. Think about it, if you were successful within the Old Reality rules, why would you give them up? There comes a time when you say, “Forget it! This shit isn’t working for me! So I’m not going to try anymore to fit in, be a good mother, a responsible son or have a great credit rating.” The rules of society and what other people say about you don’t matter anymore. That’s freedom!

Another part of the transition that I see happening is letting go of the judgment of physical reality and especially our bodies. Most religions and New Age teachings will tell you that we must learn to transcend the desires of our bodies, especially the things related to the lower chakras. Non-physical (spiritual) reality is better than physical reality. After all, we “fell from grace” and ended up here. It’s like we are being punished by having bodies. The Earth experience is unique. There is nowhere else that we can have the intensity of experience that we get here. When I look at other places of incarnation, they look kind of pastel colored. It might be easier and more peaceful there but it’s not as exciting. The Earth is full of bright, vivid colors; the bold primary colors and gorgeous jewel tones.

If you think about it, we receive cosmic energy and information from the Universal Center, through the Galactic Center, through Sirius to our Sun and then to the Earth Center. What if our cosmic wisdom came in via our feet and root chakras (which are closer to the Earth) rather than through the crown chakra? If that were true then instead of going up and out of our bodies to connect with spiritual wisdom, we would connect more with the Earth and actually be more in our bodies. Try it out some time.

As we continue on our path to Love/Unity/Limitlessness/Awakening we will see more of the old systems breaking down. There will be changes to the planet and some people will be leaving. The old systems; financial, government, religion, education etc. will continue to fall apart. There will be up-swings and down-swings. As an example, let’s look at the USA and the election of President Obama. His election was possible because the USA had shifted from being predominantly at the Young Soul level to being predominantly Mature Soul level. At the Young Soul level the focus is on mastering physical reality. These are the CEO’s, the one’s who have all the things that mark you as being a success in the Old Reality, high-end home(s), fancy car, Italian suits etc. The Young Soul person doesn’t have emotional wisdom or empathy. They see the world as “me” and “not me”.

At the Mature Soul level the heart chakra opens and the entity (individual human or country) learns about emotions and empathy. The Mature Soul’s view is “me” and “other me’s”. Bush is a Young Soul and Obama is a Mature Soul.

Whenever a soul moves from one soul level to another it is going into an unknown area and will experience uncertainty and fear. When under stress the soul will revert to the previous soul age strategies and ways of thinking for a period of time. But the push to embrace the new level eventually leads them to embracing and living the new soul level perspectives once again. This is what has happened in the USA. And this pattern of moving forward and then back again for a period of time will happen for each of us individually as well as for the world as a whole.

I see it as a parallel split and the people who don’t want to be on the New Earth Parallel will be leaving. They will have a reality that suits their level of awareness and desired experiences. We will have a reality that suits our level of awareness and desired experiences. It isn’t going to happen over night. You won’t wake up on December 22, 2012 to a completely different world. We have chosen to make this transition be as gentle as possible. From the human perspective it can seem really slow, but Saint Germain tells me that we are going really fast! They didn’t expect us to be able to get to where we are this quickly. He suggested that we relax a bit! We will “get there” guaranteed. We need to give our bodies time to handle the higher frequencies. We are receiving pulses of these frequencies and then given some time to adjust and transform physically. These pulses are happening faster, coming in as frequently as a few days. Just a year or two ago we could only handle the pulses about every month or two.

The hardest part of living in these transition times is that we know that there is a New Reality and we know how amazing and fun it can be. At the same time we are still living somewhat in the Old Reality as the two are still overlapped. As the two realities pull apart it gets easier to manifest what we desire here. At the same time, the “power players” in the Old Reality are more and more threatened. They are trying to hold on to their power and to hold on to us. Ultimately, they can not succeed, but they will try to hook you back into the fear and shame based reality that gives them their power. This is happening on a macro level and a micro level. Those people in your life who have been feeding on your energy will do their best to get you to continue feeding them. They will try to make you feel bad and to doubt yourself. I would say that the more that they tell you that you are doing it wrong, the more you are actually doing it right!

There are new, wonderful technologies that will soon be released that will totally change the planet. Cars that run on water or non-toxic alcohol based on sea-purifying kelp, old tires and medical waste that are processed without any toxicity into organic fertilizer, turbines that harvest the ocean tides to produce enough energy for huge cities, and much more.

Another thing I see happening in the near future is irrefutable evidence of Extra Terrestrials. We are being prepared for this in many ways. Look at how many movies and TV programs about ETs. I heard that the US Government is funding the show called The Event about ETs already living on Earth and pretending to be humans. And the president on the show is African American. Obama has been briefed about the ETs that our government has been working with for decades. Disclosure is imminent.

Before we are able to manifest changes in physical reality, we must make the inner transformation. The challenging part is to be able to maintain our sense of self-love and inherent value until the physical catches up with the spiritual. So be kind to yourself and be patient. Your success is guaranteed!

Below some of are the suggestions I received for defining and naming this transformation:

Freedom of the Being, Limitless Being
Being Divine

For me, the transformation process is about learning to stop resisting.  If we resist our emotions, then they are controlling our perceptions making us blind to what is.  And I believe that we create so many attachments so that we can hide from our emotions.
I recently felt my transformation was like learning the rules of the game of life, and once you learn the rules, the game becomes obvious and easy.  But now it seems like there is really only one rule and that is to release resistance.

The word I like for what is happening is 'Awakening' (to our true self)  Awakening is opening me to self compassion, self acceptance, self love, honoring self no matter what outer landscape would like me to believe (illusion).


I'm reading it as two words actually: A scension. Meaning: a continuous act of sensing with my senses... like a word game that scension is a noun of the verb "sensing."

I like it this way because that's what my own "Ascension" journey was and still is all about. Coming back to my senses to the awarenesses and opening those up - which initially is sometimes quite painful - letting myself be alive once again versus being analytical and "intelligent" but numb... "I'm not dumb I'm just numb"... hehe

ONENESS is the word I feel covers the process - before our energies were scattered all around...now we are inviting all aspects back, leaving nothing behind.

It’s about becoming a TOTALLY DIFFERENT BEING in a process as natural as a caterpillar becoming a butterfly.  Metamorphosis.  It’s a transformation.
Butterfly transformation?
Morph?  Morphing?
Cocoon stage?
Multi-dimensional living?
Multi-dimensional perception?

The Transition

soul retrieval

From my perception and experience, it is the reintegration of our Stellar Celestial Consciousness within our human form - We are shown that we are love - and love is ALL - Love is enough - If you embody this vibe, it really does not  matter what you do with your self as your energy transforms everyone and everything around without "Doing Anything"  
I like the word Fusion as it definitely represents the process I went through-

Harmonious Enlightenment... the blending and sharing of light and sound

5th Dimensional Inner alignment. We are each born with an Original Soul Song....just waiting to be sung. Our soul song travels with us from lifetime to lifetime. Only thing is, the CD gets scratched every lifetime. As mothers we carry an extra burden and have to be repaired as we fragment our selves through child-birth and de-faultive re-incarnation. Our scattered 'selves' feel the same we do. So when you change your thinking, so do they. It is a miracle in the making.

Metamorphosis.  I think that fits perfectly. It does sort of feel like we are turning from caterpillars into butterflies, don't you think?

What always has resonated deep within me is GOING HOME'! And the return to ONENESS!

I think that ascension is not "acute" anymore, because we are not just going "upwards" like when you ascend. We are becoming our true-shelves and in order to do that we are going upwards, downwards, inwards, towards, realwards, dreamwards... You know that English is not my mother language so I think you can play with words or wards better than me.
I think this is about evolving and becoming true-self, integrating all our parts and letting go what a-part us.

I've used the term "Awake". As in I was asleep before I became aware of Energy and my Healing Talent, then I Awoke from separation into Unity, Oneness.
When I began to make the distinction of Religious vs Spiritual.  Religion will have someone (priest, rabbi, minister, etc) installed to tell you what to think, what to do and tell you how you MUST believe, and of course pay them to do so.  Spirituality cuts out that middle man and you go right to the Source. . . and Learn your own Truth.
Perhaps the Grand Awakening Humanity.

Becoming whole or
Becoming at one

I have been connecting more with the phrase "Rising Sun."    It is the time of the Rising Sun--us.  And it we who are being called to be the Rising Sun.

The Sovereign Sun resides both within and outside of us.  Now it is time for our solar plexus Sovereign Sun to rise up to greet the THE Sovereign Sun which is, of course, none other than our greater selves in oneness with the universal creative force.

This is a glorious summary, and its structure reminds me so much of the spiraling process we are synthesizing. I would like to add that word, synthesizing to your list of a scension attributes. Every day is new, but for now, I am synthesizing love across all my time and space. It is like being the Walt Disney, the imagineer of your energy, singing the song of your life.
Happy Loving to All,

Nice summary, Sarah. You have a gift for synthesis.

Thank you so much for this posting. It resonates with me and gives me hope. I have subscribed to Spirit Library for over one year, but this is the first time I felt compelled to comment.

Thank you, thank you and thank you.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! As I was reading this article, I got this overwhelming feeling of "wow, this all makes sense!" (which is how I felt when I saw The Secret for the first time, which is what jump-started my awakening). I especially appreciated the part in regards to your daughter. I find myself in a similar situation. Which brings me to REALLY appreciating the part where you mentioned about how the old souls will try to pull you back and convince you that you're wrong. I took a stand for my rights yesterday. There were some who were really resistant, but I don't have any regrets. Reading your article really helped get the message home and reassure me that I am on the right path. Thank you again!

Looove the article! Its one of the best I have read in a long time! U write beautifully and its very inspiring:-) always read your updates and they are all awesome but this one has something special for me...apart Obama being made aware of the ETs, ( how funny they said he had been told about then..I read he is also u of then ( us :)) what really came to my attention is how many people ( apart you of course !) Are still not aware of the Galactic command( or Federation ) and Ashtar! Many think its only on line fantasy but I have been channeling Ashtar Sheran for many years! And 3 weeks ago I met this other guy too who also channels and work with his energy for years also ...and personally we only know eachother who do the same thing..I know there is more but maybe people are shy or afraid to say..I said to then : stand up and be counted ! It is time...and the contact is really eminent ..keep shinning your Light Sarah! U are much needed :)
God bless:-)

ASCENT -The Return to our Spiritual Origin...Heaven or Paradise
Bear in mind that every life on earth is a short time of schooling and that we do not cease to exist when we lay aside our physical body.
Whoever imagines that with earthly burial everything is also ended and balanced for him, may turn and go his own way; for he is only trying to delude himself.
Arouse the earnest volition for what is better, which could liberate and help us to ascend, which carries the kind of light-thought that might awaken and support us.
"Love thy neighbour as thyself"
With these words Jesus gave the key to freedom and ascent!
Therefore, if you are still in this world or already in what you regard as the beyond, pull yourselves together at last and concentrate your volition on what is good! With a steadfast good volition the end of all atonements must come, when we will what is good and act accordingly we incur no fresh debts that demand further atonement. This will then bring deliverance, redemption, which alone permit ascent to the Light.
Keep your thoughts Pure! Remember this
