Have you been feeling a bit weird lately? A bit off? Maybe you’ve been scatter-brained, or you’ve had moments where you’ve lost time, or maybe you feel totally overwhelmed by other massive changes in your life. What the hell is going on?
Well, it turns out that this ascension business can come with some side effects, many of which you may already be experiencing. If you have, today’s video is for you – I’ll explain the seven most common symptoms, as well as how to mitigate them. If you haven’t been feeling anything, don’t worry. Not everyone does. But if you do start to become “symptomatic” (lol), you’ll know what’s going on. Weeeee! Down the rabbit hole we go!
Coaching Call #194 is out! The topic of this week’s call is: What Can She Do To Create The Happy Life She So Wants To Have?
This caller keeps trying to move into the reality she wants but every time she thinks she’s getting somewhere, something happens to derail her. After a lot of soul searching and inner work to find herself, she now feels lost and overwhelmed.
Her life hasn’t turned out the way she thought it would; she’s a single mom, she’s in a job she hates, she’s living somewhere she doesn’t want to live and she’s struggling financially. She broke up with her recent boyfriend and although the relationship wasn’t healthy, she finds it difficult to break away from him. She now believes she’s not meant to be happy in this life, but thinks maybe she’ll get it right in her next life.
What limiting beliefs are keeping this caller from getting what she wants? Why hasn’t all the soul searching and inner work helped her to get the reality she desires? Is it really true that some of us are not meant to be happy; we are only meant to suffer?
This call is for you if you’re bumping up against too many obstacles that are stopping you from getting the reality you want.
Today I’m going to be talking about ascension once more. This is the fourth video that I’ve done on the ascension series, and probably the last one for a while. This all has to do with the insights that I received in my last trip to Peru and there will be many more coming in the next few weeks. This first little series gives you a taste of what’s to come, and will set you up for the rest of the year.
Today I’d like to talk to you about the symptoms of ascension, those pesky symptoms that you might be experiencing that are causing you to freak out a little bit, because you don’t understand what’s going on. It’s my hope that once you do know what’s happening, you won’t freak out anymore; you’ll just let it happen and maybe even enjoy some of it.
These are not the symptoms that you will necessarily experience. You could have just one of them or have no experience of any of them. This is a very personal and unique journey. I’m going to be telling you about some of the symptoms that I’ve had and about some of the symptoms that people I know have had. Don’t worry about them hitting you all at once, or even if they’ll hit you at all. This is more about you understanding what might be going on with you right now.
Everything is speeding up and more and more people are now going through this process, which means more and more of you might be experiencing some of these.
Before I go further into it here’s a little disclaimer – The information contained in these topics is not intended nor implied to be a substitute for professional medical advice.
Symptom #1 – Ascension Flu
The first most common type of symptom that you might be experiencing is a physical purging. With purging, I’m referring to a symptom where your body is getting rid of something in order to help it get rid of toxins or shift out negative energy that you may have shifted or maybe you are shifting out of your system. Purging does not have to be terrible but usually it’s not all that much fun, either. It can lead to diarrhea, a fever, or flu like symptoms. Just recently I read the term “Ascension Flu” being used, because so many people are experiencing these types of symptoms. It could be something like you experiencing a lot of mucus coming up, something like a mucus-ey cough.
If you are experiencing this and you are suffering, of course go to the doctor, there’s no shame in that. You don’t have to think that you should be all spiritual and you shouldn’t be using pharmaceuticals. If you need antibiotics, use them, but understand if you are having some kind of persistent symptom like this or it shows up for just a day or two without any explanation and then goes away, it may very well be this ascension symptom. Don’t freak out, but if you are suffering horribly, get it taken care of and get some help and relief, because remember this whole journey is about feeling good. Don’t suffer unnecessarily because you are trying to be at your “purest”.
Symptom #2 – Exhaustion
This second symptom is also a physical symptom that almost everybody I know is experiencing and that is exhaustion. You could be going through periods of extreme exhaustion where you are feeling really tired and you need more sleep than you normally need – maybe 10 to 12 hours a night. You might have started struggling to get through the day and I have to tell you, I’ve experienced this exhaustion on a heavy level.
In fact, 2015 was probably the hardest year physically that I’ve ever experienced. I haven’t talked about this until now because I don’t usually talk about things that are ongoing; I usually talk about them when I’m on the other side of them. I dealt with quite a bit of exhaustion, although it wasn’t constant. I did have periods of having quite a bit of energy, but on the whole, my energy was a lot lower than it normally is. I’m a very high energy person so the way that I dealt with it was to take lots of rest and I made sure I babied myself whenever I needed to. I slept a lot, taking naps as much as possible and I didn’t push myself to do things when I wasn’t feeling up to it; and I didn’t beat up on myself. This all helped a lot. I just surrendered to it as much as I could.
The exhaustion has now gone which is not to say that periods of that might not come back, but it wasn’t like an illness kind of exhaustion, it was just a real fatigued kind of exhaustion. Just about everybody that I know who is doing hardcore spiritual work is going through this at the moment or has gone through periods of it intermittently.
If that is happening to you, please don’t worry. If you are feeling that type of exhaustion do your best to be kind to yourself and rest as much as possible. It will pass, and all of these symptoms that I’m talking about are temporary. They are a sign of a shift, a change and you are not always going to be experiencing them. It’s not some kind of chronic condition; it’s more about you crossing the bridge and while you are crossing it there are certain things that are going to be purging out of your system. Certain things are going to be shifting and some of that is going to show up physically. If it does, please don’t worry too much about it, just do your best to be kind to yourself. Surrender to it and give yourself what you need.
Symptom #3 – Time Dilation
Another symptom that you might be experiencing is that time is changing and it might be losing all meaning to you. This has certainly happened to me and to quite a few people I know. This is a fun one and one you can start to enjoy if you aren’t freaking out about it. So, what could be happening to you is that 10 minutes go by but it feels like an hour, or conversely an hour goes by but it feels like 10 minutes. That could increase for you as it has for me, where my perception of time is completely out of whack. I have absolutely no idea how much time has gone by – generally not ever. I don’t have a feel anymore for what time of day it is. I’m finding I don’t really care either! I’m living much more in the moment (which is where this comes from, living much more in the moment), and time doesn’t really exist as we think it does. This is why we can experience this time dilation in greater and greater instances and with greater intensity than ever before.
If this is happening to you and you are wondering how could time have gone by so fast or how could only 10 minutes have gone past because it feels more like two hours to you, understand that you are shifting into a different energy now. Unfortunately, often in our world, it does feel more like only 10 minutes have passed, but actually lots and lots of time has gone by and then we end up being late for something. If you find yourself not giving a crap about what time you are supposed to be somewhere and it’s all distorted a little bit, again understand that this is really you just shifting to a completely different energy. You are shifting into a dimension where time doesn’t exist the way we think it does.
Don’t let that scare you, because it will stabilize for you again and then you can actually have fun with this. You don’t just have the ability to speed up time, where two hours have suddenly gone, you also have the ability to slow time down, too. You might want to play with that a little bit – where it seems that hours have gone by and you’ve been very productive but only a little bit of time has actually passed on the clock. Maybe play with that if that’s happening to you.
Symptom #4 – Faster Manifestations
Part of this time issue is also the time buffer that we have for manifestations, meaning as you focus on something and you get the energy rolling, you’ve started a “Progression of Manifestation”. This is a term from my book and it’s about how manifestations come into physical reality.
You’ve started a new progression of manifestation, you get some momentum and energy going and from the time when you do this to the time that it manifests physically, that time buffer has always been longer than it is now. It’s now starting to get shorter and shorter, which means manifestations are coming in faster and faster. Now that may mean that manifestations of your resistance, by which I mean your limiting beliefs – the stuff that is keeping you from manifesting what you want, are also manifesting faster and faster and slapping you in the face.
If that is happening to you, it means you are levelling up, so do your best to shift those beliefs one at a time; get yourself through it. It’s happening faster than before but the good side of that same coin is that positive manifestations are also happening faster. Allow yourself to see the correlation with the work that you are doing and with what’s showing up in your reality, and how it’s happening so much more easily. This will then shore up your belief that this stuff is actually real and that it actually does work! Which it does! The most common thing I hear from my clients is: “OMG Melody, this shit actually works!”
Lives change when you start to apply these methods and you step into higher and higher vibrations. Again, you are going to see manifestations coming in faster, both manifestations of resistance and manifestations of awesomeness. Never forget about the manifestations of awesomeness, because with you guys being so intellectual, you get so caught up in doing the work, you forget the point of all this – which is to have fun.
Symptom #5 – Diet & Habits
One of the other symptoms that you might be experiencing is that you’ve maybe noticed some rather drastic or subtle changes to your diet or your habits. You may be drawn to completely different foods or you may no longer be drawn to foods that were your favorite foods; now you don’t really want them anymore.
If you are wondering what is happening, it’s because your body is going through an enormous amount of change at the moment. Again, it can bring up some physical symptoms and your body is going to tell you what it needs. The best thing to do is to listen to it, because what you need may change again and again. Don’t get too caught up in which diets you think you should be eating, either. Should you eat meat or not? Should you eat carbohydrates or not? Should you have a green smoothie every day or not? What it really comes down to is listening to your body in the moment (always listen to yourself in the moment), and just react to that. If you want meat today, go ahead and have meat. If tomorrow you want to eat vegan, eat vegan. Don’t be so rigid about creating rules around it. Listen to what your body is telling you in every moment, because what you need may very well change.
Habits may also go out. You might stop drinking alcohol or you may simply reduce your alcohol intake. You may stop smoking (or you may start smoking, lol)! Even your exercise habits could change. If you are used to being a person who pushes and punishes themselves in the gym, you may find you have no interest in doing that anymore and you’d rather do yoga instead. Try not to judge so much what is going on with you, just be gentle with yourself and go with it. A lot of this is going to culmintate in you being much gentler with yourself and you then benefiting from being gentler with yourself.
Symptom #6 – Disorientation
This symptom that I want to talk about next can scare people quite a bit when it happens and that is disorientation. If it is happening to you please don’t freak out as it’s something that you can definitely learn to deal with, plus it’s only a temporary symptom.
It is possible at times to become disorientated, even just slightly, but if you are a person who still harbors a fear, for example about going insane, which people do have (in masses), then this symptom can bring up quite a bit of fear. Not all people have fear with disorientation; I tend to enjoy my disorientation!
Instances where you lose track of what you’re about to say, or walking into a room and you start wondering why the hell you’re there, may become more numerous. You may forget mid-sentence what you’re talking about. You may forget some appointments that you have. Again, tying that into the time thing, you may forget what time your appointments are because you’ve completely lost track of time. You may find yourself wandering down a street and you don’t remember making the decision to go there, but as you were daydreaming, you took a turn that you’ve never taken before. You might be wondering, if this isn’t your habit, why would you walk down that street?
If things like this are happening to you, understand that once again this is a symptom of you shifting into a different reality – one where the physical world doesn’t have the same meaning, the same importance, or the same pull that you grew up with. Some of that can be a little disorientating, but if you feel you are completely losing your mind, go to the doctor and get yourself checked out. For the most part, if you are having some of these little glitches don’t freak out, understand that they may very well be symptoms of ascension.
Symptom #7 – Massive Changes
The last symptom that I want to talk about is the one where your life may drastically change and friends, jobs, acquaintances or stuff you have may gravitate out. This can be kind of alarming to some people, thinking they’re losing all their friends, or getting downsized in their job, or being pulled into a field they’ve never gone into; this scares them. You might even be inspired to move to a completely different State (or country), like me! This can be a little bit scary, because you’re wondering what’s going to happen, because this is the unknown. Will you ever make friends again? Will you like this new place? Will you ever get another job? But here’s the thing: All that’s happening is that stuff is gravitating out to make room for the new friends, the new house, the new place, the new job. And here’s the thing that’s going to kill the fear around that – The new things are going to be better than the things that have gravitated out, because you are levelling up, you are not levelling down.
That means when these types of things gravitate out, if you don’t freak out and you stay open and have a positive general expectation about things improving as they come in, then you are not going to slow down the process. Before you know it, you’re going to have a completely new life.
One of the things that I always find funny when I work with people is when they tell me about the things in their lives that they’d like to change and when we start to apply these methods and their lives actually start to change, the next phone call with them is about them freaking out because their life is changing! I think that’s so funny; they want change, but they freak out when it does change! But here’s why we freak out: we are afraid of change, because we have this assumption that change is going to be bad; it’s going to be negative; change cannot possibly be a good thing or be something even better.
I would advise you to work on that and start to deliberately choose to see change as: “What if it is better?” You can soften it; you don’t have to just accept that it’s going to be better. But what if it is actually better?! Ponder that for a minute or two, not just 15 seconds, and get some energy going! Don’t stop after 15 seconds, go for a full minute or two and ponder – what if the changes that are happening in your life are going to bring in more awesome? Because that is actually what is happening and that is open to you as long as you stay open to it.
I hope that I’ve dispelled some of your fears around some of the things that might be happening to you. Please don’t take it that this is definitely going to happen to you as you go through this process. None of these things may apply to you, they may happen in different degrees, or other things may be happening that I didn’t mention here. I gave you the top ones that I’ve experienced and that I’ve talked about with the people I know who are going through this process and who are having these kinds of symptoms. These symptoms are what I have personal experience with and ones that I can talk knowledgeably about.
If you are experiencing other symptoms, please leave a comment below and maybe share your own experiences so that other people can also benefit. Please give me a reaction, a thumbs up or a thumbs down on You Tube (or a comment here on the blog!) – any type of reaction so that this becomes a two-way conversation; I really do appreciate the comments.
This has been this week’s Q&A, until next time, Bye!
