Ascension and the Healing Crisis

Enjoy Sea Melody, from my album, Simply Divine, while reading the post.

You are in the process of releasing your past.  the ancient patterns that have created emotional and physical dis-ease. In this natural process, you may temporarily feel a little lost.  You may be asking, who then do I become?

You become more yourself, more of yourself.

And as you release these energies, you do so by honoring yourself, and by honoring your ancestors (and, when you think about it, you are your own ancestors, you may be your great-grandmother or great-grandfather)…and you set them all free.

Meanwhile you may be feeling all kinds of stuff…sadness, loneliness, anger, confusion, and you may be experiencing illness in your physical body.  These are all ascension symptoms…they are just coming up to be released.  They, for the most part, are ancient.  You need not try to figure any of them out with your mind.  Do what you need to make yourself comfortable.  Feel the feelings.  For the most part they are not yours.  Some have been buried for so long that they have become petrified in your body.  But not to worry, they are not permanent residents…remember your body is the last to come on board with your evolving consciousness, so don’t let your mind distract you from that truth with its fear and worry.  It takes as long as it takes.

But, having said that, it’s o.k. to go to a doctor or practitioner if you can’t seem to quiet the fears.  There is no right or wrong.  Do what gives you the most peace…eventually you will come to realize, if you haven’t already, that your body is purging old patterns and old systems, even sometimes in the form of a disease or two…and it is doing this in response to the download of rarified light and love coming onto the Planet and into your body, and this process is going to go so much more smoothly if you accept it, and keep your mind’s fears and concerns in the background, not the foreground of your day-to-day life.

Sometimes things seem to get worse.  There is something called the Herxheimer Reaction.*  It’s what happens in the body after it is given a substance to eliminate the bacterial toxins.  The body gets worse, the symptoms worsen, before there is a healing, because the toxins take longer to release.  It can also be called a healing crisis.  That is what is happening in our bodies, and even in our minds and emotions.  The symptoms feel worse for a while.  The body is responding to the growing intensity of light, and is working overtime to purge the energies that can’t sustain themselves in that light.  If we keep this in mind, we will not need to overreact and create drama.  Because, right now, our creative abilities are very potent in this new energy.  What we focus on, whether it is something we enjoy or something we fear, will manifest, and quickly.  So it’s important to, yes, feel all the feelings as they present themselves.  Yes, express them all safely, from tears to pounding a pillow, or yelling or whatever you are feeling.  And in that acceptance of them, they do transmute.  Just don’t over identify with them.  Remember they are not you.  They are from your distant past.

They are an accumulation of ancient toxins that are being purged.  Even if you think the feeling is a reaction from something that happened an hour ago, something to do with your spouse, or your friend, or your kids.  Yes, some of those feelings are because you are tired and you are impatient and want this ascension thing to be done already.  Who doesn’t?  No one wants to be uncomfortable.  But, interestingly, one of the toxins that are being released now, is the addiction to being uncomfortable.  The victim energy that is pervasive in our world.  But don’t worry about the rest of the world.  They are going at their own pace.  But you, dear new energy pioneer, are going at warp speed, even if you do not recognize it.  You are doing in this one lifetime what would take several lifetimes to do.

You are beginning to feel the love growing in you, from your divinity, and for your human self.  And your human self has been a neglected child of yours.  Those people in your life that appear before you who seem so needy of your attention and affections are merely a reflection of your own inner child who has been starving for your love and attention.  Some of you succumbed to illness and disease just to get a modicum of attention.  Or to have a reason to retreat into your own space for a while.  It felt like there were no other options.  You didn’t want to appear to be ‘selfish’…putting your needs first over others in your life…but that game is coming to an end.  You can’t afford to play in that sandbox anymore.  You certainly can’t afford to play the game of appearing to others with a sunny, nurturing, compliant disposition when at times you are feeling quite the opposite, or you just want to be by yourself, enjoying your own company.

And as you fill yourself up first, you will appear quite sunny, quite content with life and in love with yourself. You may then want to share that joy with others, but not from a place of putting on a happy face to make others more comfortable.  In fact, you may make some quite uncomfortable.  You won’t be doing the knee-jerk response of dimming your light.  You will be shining the light from your soul, through your eyes, and it will show just by the way you walk into a room.  Not everyone can handle that kind of radiance.

*The Herxheimer Reaction is an immune system reaction to the toxins (endotoxins) that are released when large amounts of pathogens are being killed off, and the body does not eliminate the toxins quickly enough.

    Hi Maria,
    Thank you so much for this. I feel so reassured & more calm when i get these reminders to just keep doing what I’m doing and focus on relaxing and allowing all of this weird stuff to move through& out, & that its TEMPORARY. Thats a really difficult one to remember sometimes as it often feels as if this process has been dragging on forever, even though in the big picture it is quite speedy. I really like the purging toxins metaphor–that resonates clearly. I have developed a measure of detachment that helps me to not worry so much & simply let the process play out, but these reminders are very valuable to me!
    Hope your day is deLIGHTful! 💙

    1. Hi Elila
      Yes, sometimes I have to re-read my own posts to remind MYSELF. It’s all too easy to get swept up in the mind’s fears and concerns, especially relative to our body. And as you say, the feeling that this process is dragging on FOREVER….Sometimes it’s to just honor the human self who wants to have a temper tantrum!! But then, afterward, to laugh and say, well that felt good to release some frustration, now back to relaxing and allowing. Kudos on your detachment! That’s a big step in this process.
      Enjoy your day too. ❤
