The subject of depression and ascension is becoming significant in the New Age community. For this reason I am addressing it in this post. The Ascension process is all about integrating our body of consciousness. Integrating our human and our divine self. This is monumental.
Along with this integration is inevitably a disintegration, a releasing of our old selves, old patterns, karma. It is the dismantling of everything we thought we were. So naturally, there will be a sense of great loss. We believe we are losing parts of ourselves. (coupled with people in our life leaving or we leaving them). There is a grieving process that needs to be honored.
After each stage of the light body process there is a void, which may include depression. This is a good time to take it easy and just allow the feelings some space. Don’t push anything. There is an integration taking place.
Our Own Private Drama-Fest
It is appropriate to grieve, it is appropriate to feel sad, to feel angry and other such emotions, especially through the ascension process. (And by the way, don’t feel you have to hide your feelings from others. This process isn’t for those who are trying to be the nice boy or nice girl) However just know that beyond a certain point, it’s okay to break the cycle of that emotion. You don’t have to indulge it to the point where you are becoming addicted to it. And yes those feelings can become very seductive. They become our own private drama-fest.
By law of attraction, more of the same will be created. So it is a balance. Absolutely allow yourself the feelings, that is number one. That is of most importance. Don’t deny them. Give them some breathing room. Express, write, draw if it feels appropriate. Take walks in nature, And go ahead and watch some t.v drama, something that will channel and mitigate some of those feelings for you. But just know that sometimes these feelings take on a life of their own, and they can be perpetuated to the point where they take over and become a distraction.
Detachment Can Lead To Depression
Another cause of depression in the ascension process is that we are on the forefront of enlightenment and some of us are beginning to feel that perhaps we are through with what we came here to do. So we may be feeling very detached from everything. Even from those we love. We feel out of step with the rest of the world. This is troubling to us because we believe it signifies the end of our life as we know it. (It IS the end of life as we knew it and the beginning of a new life.)
We’re just not feeling the same passion as we did before. Even doing the mundane daily chores can feel overwhelming. This detachment can lead to depression. It could also just be a false signal that our mind is sending to us. Don’t forget the mind wants to find problems. It searches the corners of the room for things that have supposedly gone wrong. Various aspects of yourself from this and past lifetimes are also going to come in with all of their issues and point the finger at you. And then let us not forget mass consciousness and others going through this and even the near earth realms are experiencing these intense energies coming into the planet, and we are picking up on those.
We are being recalibrated right down to our DNA. After each intense infusion of light (Which by the way light is information) we need time to integrate, and adjust emotionally and physically. in this intense transformational process is it any wonder we can laugh at all. So be gentle with yourself through this. Yes you will have bouts of depression, anger, grief, and other such intense emotions. Feel them, but don’t over identify with them. I cannot stress that enough.
We knew this process was going to be intense. We didn’t know how intense. But we are warriors. We are pioneers. We knew ahead of time that it would be a bit treacherous. But we came prepared. We are learning to use our new creational skills, one of which, interestingly, is to ALLOW everything we need to come to us. We’re certainly not used to that.
You Are Not Alone
We wanted to ascend. Whether that means taking our energetic bodies with us into the other dimensions, or staying here on the Earth plane after enlightenment and just enjoying physical life being the embodied master, that is our personal soul decision. But in this process there is going to be a lot of tearing apart. A lot of stresses on our emotions and our body. So do take good care of yourself. I know for myself I had to release some relationships, and take it really easy. Because my body was dictating what had to be done. Your body will tell you. In no uncertain terms. Listen to it. It is vital that you take care of yourself. Playing the martyr, or the victim is not going to serve you in the new energy. You’re going to need all of your resources to keep your balance through this process. Giving your energies away to someone else or to something else will not be serving you well.
This process is not done from the mind, yet the mind has been well-trained, it wants to do its ‘job.’ But it is tired. It also wants a break, to allow the divine to take over. So it’s not to destroy the mind, but allow it to integrate with spirit, along with the body.
You are not alone. There is a cavalcade of assistance for you. But you need to trust that and trust yourself. You are bigger than your depression. You are a magnificent creator god here in the flesh to experience one of the most amazing feats in history! We wanted to have all of the extraneous stripped away so we would be face-to-face with the most amazing being of all – ourselves!
