What is Ascension?

by Brad Austen

Ascension is a gradual process of becoming enlightened while walking around as a human being. It is a process of changing from a disconnected human being, to a connected human being, connected to one’s higher self and the realm of spirit.

During ascension spirit begins to merge with matter over a period of time, parts of our soul/higher self begin to merge with our body/mind/spirit.

While there are some similarities of ascension with everyone, it is also a very unique and personal experience. After all, we are all so unique and special in our own way. 

Some people that have a stronger mental energy will probably not experience as many of the emotional symptoms of ascension. People that have a stronger emotional energy, (the empaths and sensitive’s), will experience ascension from a more emotional perspective.

Generally the population is only at the beginning of the ascension process, and caught up in the limitation of the 3rd dimension. We live in a world currently that in many ways does not support ascension.

However those of us that are interested in ascension, we are here to pave the way and make it easier for future generations to ascend. Whether you want to label us as “indigos” or “crystals”, we are here to assist humanity and mother earth raise our vibrations and bridge heaven to earth.

Some of my personal challenges with ascension have been related to my sensitivity. When you carry more of your soul in your physical body, you tend to feel more intensely, than before your soul infusion. The highs can be higher and the lows can be lower. Sounds and vibrations can be harder to tolerate than before. It isn’t all joy and bliss, because very few people have mastered that state on a continuous basis.

Over time you begin to feel more at peace and content as your vibrations change, but often you have to face your fears to get there. Ascension isn’t an easy journey, and in most cases other people cannot relate to your experiences that are not on a spiritual path. Ascension is an inward journey and you may find yourself wanting to spend more time alone and in nature.

Entertainment that is violent or competitive can become less appealing. Loud and disharmonious music can also become less appealing. At the moment Mother Earth is ascending and healing from many years of negativity and abuse. In most cases the earth will ascend first and then humanity will follow. The more people that begin to awaken and raise their vibrations, the more gently the earth changes will be. When the earth triggers a natural disaster, in part it is to release energy, but it also has the effect of triggering humanity into a state of compassion and emotional release. It makes people all around the world want to help those affected by the disaster, whether that be donating money or sending healing energy to the area affected.

Ascension can be a challenging journey, but we are doing a great service to the future of humanity and life on this planet. We all have our unique missions and roles to play; each one of us is so precious and important. We will all leave this planet a greater being than before we came.

My experience
by: Joanne Lewis

I found during my Ascension, I experienced some visions of my past life and was aware that there were some things I needed to clear from those times, you are right that it wasn't easy but once done you become a better person for it, you learn so much and you realise that we are all one, although going through different stages of our spiritual growth. experiencing the same emotions and you also recognise that everything is healable.

Love this article

Hello, my name is Peter Wehle, I enjoyed very much this spiritual article about ascension by Mr. Brad Austen. I too have been involved in the ascension process. I have created a blog titled "Spiritual Time Now," as well as having been published on the Progressive website.
I am sending you one of my more recent essays.

(Oh, P.S. I am also sending to you the first chapter of an audiobook I wrote about one of the greatest metaphysical writers of the 20th Century. His name is Hamid Bey.)


Quite often I look up into the vast sky and simply ask the
Lord to "Help Me To Find A Way." Then I touch a special stone that I believe is a green heart stone. The significance of this act is purely one of faith.

My faith grows stronger everyday. I keep telling myself that, "I Believe, I Believe, I Believe," of course with the appropriate conviction. I am not sure if I am trying to convince myself or not but it is an exercise that I enjoy, so I will keep doing it and making it part of my daily meditation practice.

When I utter these simple words of Lord-"Help Me To Find A Way," I know I am asking providence to steer me in the right direction for my highest good.

I continue with my day with a new enthusiasm knowing I am receiving help from ethereal sources. Some people may call this God but I prefer to relate to a "Cosmic Consciousness" that has always been with us and for us to succeed.

We are living examples of this "Cosmic Consciousness." Now, let’s go out and make a great day for everyone.

Really liked this article . I have been on my path of ascension and I feel like life is almost trying to stop me from completing it. It’s a challenge every single day but I work through it.
