Ascension – preparing for afterlife?


Hello Everyone,

It’s been a while since my last post. 2016 has been really busy and quite a challenge – not only for me, it seems. How have you survived ? Almost a year ago, during the holidays december of 2015, I experienced the phoenix, the symbol of TRANSFORMATION. It was a very intense and positive time. At the time I had no clue what kind of change was about to occur. In fact, in the first 6 months of the year, I thought the change I was being alerted to was about my mortal life, about being more involved in the mortal world. Now I’m not so sure about that anymore. I finally found a new office for my practice and we had several projects renovating our house that kept me REAL busy. I still did my meditations and sessions with guidance but felt consumed by the demands of ‘this world’.  Finally, during a summer break, I felt a ‘change of tides‘ and my attention was drawn back to the metaphysical world. Since then (the last 6 months) I’ve been  busy  in a very different way. I was back -yet in a different way – connecting to, working with and being in the metaphysical realms. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t all that easy. In fact, all my connections were being changed and I am (still) struggling to get back a similarly good rapport that I used to have – with guidance and anybody or anything else in the other realms. It’s been an emotional roller coaster going from an exhilarating high to a depressing disconnected low.

During the LOWS I noticed that my old ways of seeking comfort weren’t working anymore. In the past, among a few other things, I would look at ‘energy updates’ or the latest news of some selected channelers and sites hoping to reconnect that way. However, over the course of the last 12 – 24 months, their messages have either not resonated with me anymore, sounded very repetitive or simply ‘nuts’. Some don’t have much to say and post less (avoiding repetitions? )  and yet others completely vanished. I wonder what’s going on?!? Maybe my path is going a completely different direction than it used to? If I am not part of their ‘world’ anymore – and they’re not part of mine – it would explain the ‘not-resonating-anymore’ …. but the rest?

I wonder who else is feeling this way?

For a long time, talking about ‘ascension symptoms’ seemed very common on spiritual websites. It actually became the basis for some sites / groups / forums on the internet and I’ve mentioned them on this blog at least twice ( Suffering from Ascension  and No Shit ). They were labelled ‘physical side effects’ of ascension….. but what’s this ascension really about? Anyone an idea? What is or was the purpose of all these ‘higher frequency upgrades’? Why is it that there is seemingly  no new info coming through the channelers? Could it be that this whole ‘frequency upgrade’ stuff isn’t preparing us for something in this life or reality (i.e. the wonderful world, the shiny new planet earth with awakened souls) but rather a preparation for our afterlife? What’s your thought?

  1. I’m having similar realizations. Not drawn to posts by channels. Not interested in energy forecasts or even geomagnetic storms. I’ve shifted my focus to the material world and been keeping busy. Lots going on underneath, though. Much change at levels I care not about. I’ve even told my guidance, “I don’t want to know anymore. Let me be.” I actually considered that maybe all the changes and such associated with ascension may have nothing to do with the life we live here in this physical reality. That maybe, just maybe, we have allowed ourselves to become distracted by it and forgotten why we came here in the first place.

    • Hi Dayna, so good to see you here 🙂 ! I haven’t been much on WP (or FB) lately so I just went to your blog to see your latest posts…. and I can definitely relate to your experiences !
      It’s good to know I am not the only one considering that we are being ‘upgraded’ for whatever tasks are awaiting us on the other side. To me that is a very probable scenario. I’m not saying ‘the end is near’ and that’s why we’re going through the changes associated with ascension but once our time here is over, there is still lots to get done elsewhere.
      Personally I know that some of the time I spent in the metaphysical realms is dedicated to my ‘future self’ on the other side but I hadn’t thought of a whole group going through similar steps.
      Well, we’ll see….hopefully not too soon.

  2. Gia good to see you back. This may sound freaky but I was thinking about you yesterday and I woke up this morning to find you had blogged! I have been going through exactly the same. I haven’t written in months as I have barely had time to stop and scratch my head. I am leaving my job and moving overseas (back home) after 12 years away. Something that has become more and more important to do as this year progressed. My “phoenix” has been seeing butterflies everywhere since about this time last year. I also don’t feel as guided as I have been in the past, but I feel that this is them allowing us to leave the nest and start exploring on our own to see what happens, and then we can report back once we have experienced these life changes. Make sense?

    • Hey Signalman, same to you 🙂 Really good to have you back – on WP but also in the Northern Hemisphere in the near future?!?
      Nothing freaky about the thought – you must be incredibly well connected or tuned in. And it’s not the first time that we were going through the same stuff at the same time. I love butterflies, love that symbolism too! Personally I favor the gentle and peaceful transformation of the butterfly to phoenix fierce and (all-consuming) destructive ways…..but I guess you get what you need :-))
      Moving from one continent to another sounds like a big step. Hope your transition goes well!
      And yes, there are times when I feel guidance steps back to see how I will handle ‘stuff’ on my own – after all we don’t want to be puppets on a string….or at least I don’t see myself that way 🙂
      I have to admit though, I love being connected and when guidance is close, things just run a lot smoother. I sometimes suspect them of making sure we know how ‘valuable’ they are. I had some incredible meditations this summer – and a few weeks later I feel lost, alone in my little mundane mortal world. Almost cruel…but I assume there’s a goal. When I’m good, I try to see it as an adventure…. preparing us for the afterlife or now – who cares?

  3. Good to hear from you again. Thanks for sharing.

    From reading experiential accounts of enlightened ones, I conclude that the goal of the journey is a radical shift in the self-identity. From first being identified as body-mind towards identifying as consciousness which is the substratum of all that is.

    Adyashanti said that the normal person looks into the mirror and says “That’s me”. And the enlightened one looks at the wall and says “That’s me”.

    I am not there yet. But from reading the experiential accounts, I guess that is the goal (or at least an important milestone) of the journey. Not preparation for an afterlife, but the shift of the identity in this incarnation, if possible.

    The paths towards this goal are very different for various people, of course. Talks about frequency upgrades and ascension symptoms are the version of the path which is taken by lightworkers. Other groups have other approaches. But all end up at the very same place on the mountaintop, which is the loss of the sense of a separate self.

    Some texts mention that there is a stop of reincarnations if this goal of enlightenment has been reached. I hope this is true. Then the goal would indeed be preparation for an afterlife of not having to reincarnate again any more.

    • Hi Karin,
      Thank you for your thoughts! It seems like time is flying by so fast – can’t believe it’s been almost 6 months since we spoke. Hope you’ve had a good late summer and fall.
      Reading your comment, I am reminded of the many different ways there are of experiencing the metaphysical realms and being on the Spiritual Journey. I find that truly fascinating!
      Though I don’t consider myself a lightworker or a nondualist or following the Advaita approach or any other school, I have the same experience: a shift in self-identity is definitely part of the Journey….
      A shift in identity in this lifetime is a great goal – but if consciousness ‘survives’ death: why wouldn’t the work we do here and now be a preparation for what’s awaiting us on the other side? Of course that only applies if the consciousness that continues would not end up in the soup – so to speak.

      • Of course, we will also benefit on the other side of the work done here. I don’t think consciousness ends up in the soup. Individuality stays, but separateness vanishes.
        I am planning to read books by Juergen Ziewe, Multidimensional Man. He said that in essence in the afterlife the surroundings reflect our state of consciousness immediately. There we get the immediate effect of what emotions we hold, much faster than here. So, for example, learning to stay in peace in this 3d reality even though shit hits the fan will be of benefit in the afterlife, I guess.
