The Ascension Symptoms of the Earth’s Ascension | The 2020 Shift

Disclaimer: This is not a medical advice for replacement for any of your medical treatment.

Well, we are all aware of the transition that Mother Earth is undergoing. As always, there is no choice for all it’s inhabitants but to be transitioned along with it. But when that is happening, not everyone in it are attuned or aligned perfectly with it because the frequencies or vibrations of the ascending of energies are increasing without any wait for anyone to catch up with.  It certainly does impact every human, and the most sensitive organ of a human which resonates with these frequencies is the brain. To understand how if impacts your brain and thus your life, you may read my previous post – Understanding brain waves and states of mind

The Dark Night of the Soul
When the consciousness of the planet rises, it invariably affects the consciousness of everything in the planet. When higher and purer energies fill into the beings in the planet, naturally purging has to take place. The old has to go in order to accommodate the new. The impurities have to leave in order to fill in the divine. The lower qualities will be transcended by the higher qualities. It is this phase that we call as 
transition and these phases are usually very challenging for humans; basically, because humans usually do not like parting with these lower qualities because they have fallen into these “comfort zones” which has come over repeated hammering in of uncountable root patterns, conditioning, beliefs, and compulsions, most of which are subconscious and not done in awareness. The tug-of-war between the higher energies trying to seep in and the lower energies not willing to let go is what is called as the “dark night of the soul” which keeps coming to the individual in multiple phases. During these phases, one undergoes many changes on the physical, mental and emotional level, which shows up as Ascension Symptoms. So, this post would essentially talk about the list of updated Ascension Symptoms that multitudes are facing. This article has been written for you to let you know what, if any of these are happening to you, you are not alone!

So, what are the upheavals going on in human life during this major transition period?

Enhanced Knowing
There is a certain kind of “knowing” in you that “knows” there is something happening to your body and mind. There is this unusual feeling that cannot be explained but can be sensed in some or the other way. This may give the feeling of confusion and the feeling of one losing their mind or going kind of crazy with these feelings that are difficult to explain but something is going on. This knowing is your intuition speaking. This knowing is a natural quality of the soul and the Universe that is in the presence of stillness or awareness, it is aware of what is going on. That “being aware” can be translated to “knowing”. There is nothing much to do about this but being aware as much as possible attunes you well with this knowing. By doing so, there is a certain easiness and calm because you then get centred into the moment or in the present moment where you are simply experiencing that knowing.

As mentioned, this post does not substitute any of your medical treatments, if you are undergoing, nor any kind of medical advice. These are simply what the mass consciousness is undergoing and most of them remain confused because even the medical fraternity have no definite answers to many of the “weird” things happening to humans. Do take medical advice or treatment if that prompts you to, but these deeper insights will give you more than deeper insights.

Coping with it all ~

Ii would not really encourage to dig deep into finding what and how and when and what things are because it is never ending and it can be really confusing. It is just like asking “why would you want to scramble into the trash bin – just let the bin go for dumping!”

But still, to calm down anxiousness, let me mention a few things about the ascension process and transitioning.

  • The anxiety and confusions are the overwhelming responses of your mind to what is all happening. The anxiety and nervousness or panics are all coming from the release of the old beliefs, patterns, conditioning and beliefs that are surfacing for release. So best to observe and witness everything instead of reacting or going into fear.
  • The exhaustion, fatigue and tiredness comes from the extreme energy utilized in the process of conversion of your body from carbon to crystalline. Yes, the structure of your DNA is changing rapidly from gross to subtler. Pamper yourself – treat your body with respect, relaxation and rest
  • The sleeplessness is usually due to high energy during sleeping hours that keeps one awake, Catch up on rest and sleep whenever possible. Check and change diet. Meditate daily.
  • Waking up between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. are because these are the hours of intense energy work and also when your higher beings are at work. Do not force yourself into sleeping, rather try to meditate or read a nice book or something that would ease you and make you feel purposeful.
  • The draggy or heavy legs are when grounding is happening and new energies are being taken up by the body through the feet. Relax and try not to feel overwhelmed about it. Rest.
  • Night sweats and hot flashes is the body burning itself of the denser and lower properties.
  • Headaches, migraines and head pressures are when the Sahasrara or Crown chakra cleans itself and the pineal and pituitary glands are getting more active.
  • Loss of appetite happens when the body is learning to thrive more on prana or light instead of dense foods. You may also have strange food cravings or aversions to certain foods. Check and change your diet and go with what suits your body.
  • All digestive issues are because the food that you previously were attuned to is now no longer resonating with the new you. Your cells are becoming more subtler and thus it will not adapt to the grosser food or foods of lower vibration. Check and change your diet and go with what suits your body.
  • All kind of rashes and allergies are to do with the cleansing happening with toxins beings released through the skin that the new energy flushes out.
  • Heart palpitations, changes in beats or racing without any medical reasons is because the heart chakra is opening up and accommodating more energies as it expands to move divine love and light.
  • The spacey feeling or dizziness or out-of-balance feeling is because of the shifts happening between dimensions. It must be realised that we are multidimensional beings. So, when you are in transition a certain part of you can be in 3D and certain in higher and that is when this disorientation happens.
  • Suddenly going blank or out of words, also have the same reason, because one moment you are in a dimension and next moment in another and this also causes certain forgetfulness or sudden inability to recall what you just said or did.
  • Increased sensitivity to smell, sound, light, taste or touch happens because your 5 senses are turning more subtler and hence the stimulus will change.
  • The electricity zaps or buzzing feeling or sensation is again the higher frequencies that your body is tapping into.The feeling of emptiness is because lot of stuff or garbage is being emptied!
  • Feeling a loss of self-identity. This is because the Ego is dying!
  • Changing jobs, relationships, locations are all associated with what best being attracted for you, which are the new things that you are vibrating towards.
  • The feeling of insecurity and anxious about future is just because of the lack of trust of what is coming and also more because of the unwillingness to let go of old comfort zones.
  • Loss of interest in self-grooming or self-decorate. This is because the ego self is dying and the self is not relating with it’s true identity of the real “I” and losing interest in the false “I”.
  • Fear of dying is coming from the old you that is indeed dying! This video may help you (It’s in Hindi/English)
