Today we are getting back to basics with Practical Ascension, what a practical ascension-led life looks like and bringing in the reminder that we are humans ascending. We may understand the higher vision that we are spiritual Beings having a physical experience, yet the illusion of 3D reality is very real and to move through practical ascension is to honour and work with the human needs and belief systems.
When I talk about ascension I am referring to a series of unique awakenings and shifts that bring you back to the truth of who you are, and empower you to rise up into your power, potential and purpose. Ascension is knowing yourself deeply, accepting yourself, trusting yourself and expressing yourself. The ascension journey will be totally unique for each person and I am here to break down the process and present it in a practical way as I understand it through my work in the Akashic Records and my own personal ascension journey.
When you are living a practical ascension-led life there is no ‘typical day’, the more you deepen your connection to your Soul self the weirder and more intense things become. There are shadows to be healed and integrated, there are limiting programs and beliefs to let go of, there are ways of thinking and habits that just don’t fit anymore. Basically practical ascension is your ever-evolving journey of awakening where you learn to expect the unexpected and detach from specific outcomes, because you have learned that when you let Source/ the Universe/ God lead it is so much more expansive and fun. There will be days filled with miracles and synchronicities. Where the feeling of unity and love within you cannot be contained. There will also be days where you feel like you have set up permanent residence in the pit of despair and can’t find your way out. There will be old wounds to bring to completion and inner child reconciliation that might feel impossible to move through. Yet you do move through and you surprise yourself regularly at who you really are and what you are here for.
I’ve spoken before about the keys to practical ascension and today I’m focusing in on Practical Ascension Key #1 [human] ascension.
With this key we are reminded that we are HUMAN. We still carry human needs and a lot of outdated human beliefs that have been programmed to keep us safe since ancient times. Yet now that we are moving through the awakening it’s time to shift these to match our increased consciousness.
These pieces are key to recognizing what your entry points to ascension are. Consider ascension is refining your frequency, letting go of who you are not (those old programs) and turning back into the true frequency of YOU. We take a path for each frequency shift, the end of the path is us integrating the shift and feeling more like ourselves than ever before. But the entryway to this path? That is custom and unique and glaringly obvious when you look at your life.
Understanding your entryway to ascension is not difficult, the challenge comes in gathering the courage to go down the path despite not knowing what you will find when you are one it.
Let’s look for some common entry points to ascension based on Practical Ascension Key #1 [human] ascension.
Entryway 1: Physical Lack/ Human need: Physical survival. As humans we need food, water, shelter, sleep and a certain level of health to be here in physical form. If these basic needs are not met or we perceive them as not being met, we perceive ourselves as being in survival (lack) energy – this is one of your entryways to ascension. Exploring how you feel about these areas can reveal beliefs that are ready to dissolve (such as ‘I have to work incredibly hard, often cutting my sleep short to prove my worth’ and that may be shifted to ‘I am worthy and deserving in all ways, my worth is not determined by what do, determine my worth by how I feel about myself’)
Entryway 2: Lack Consciousness/ Human need: Fear and stress response to keep us safe. For this ascension situation to work out we need to step away from our fear and stress response. Many of us are in such a state of constant stress response from the time we wake up until we go to sleep that we operate in a state of survival. In the world of practical ascension we move from surviving to thriving. This is very similar to the 1st entry point of physical survival, but this one takes place invisibility and affects our mental and emotional state. When you are in survival you are not in a prime state to expand into all you are and all you are capable of. When you are thriving you are in the state when you are more likely to have the mental/ emotional bandwidth to explore what else is possible for you. Your entry point here might be asking ‘what can I do to shift my habits so that I spend more time in the energy of thriving (peace, ease, creativity)? This entry point might be a physical habit like meditating or cutting back on social media or walking in nature. This entry point creates a huge impact on your frequency and gives you the space you need to let your Soul support and guidance come through.
Entryway 3: Fear of neglect, abandonment, rejection, betrayal or exclusion/ Need Acceptance for Survival: If I am not accepted by the tribe I will die. Oh the good ol program of I have to be like everyone else and I have to be accepted or I will die. This one has legit roots and kept us alive when we did need the support of our family of origin/ tribe to survive. We are even taught by the school system to stay in line, not go too far outside the box etc. But now here we are, and what we most need right now are innovations, new solutions, creative thinking and being our unique selves, the opposite of conforming! So on the ascension path we are divergent, we have to do things different from the crowd because we have to create new paths/ new realities. Appreciate this part of yourself and how it has kept you and your ancestral lineage safe for lifetimes, but also let it know that it’s time to break up. The entryway to ascension here is huge. Take your pick, what feels biggest for you? What are your big fears about doing something new or showing up fully as YOU?
Entryway 4: Going along with the status quo and the system/ Need for community. For this entryway we are looking at our current society as it is today, dominantly masuline, rigid structure, and working 9-5 at least 5 days a week. Compete with each other. Force linear progression through your life and career. This one particular triggers the wounded feminine in me. As we lean into ascension we also get to know our own personal cycles and rhythms. We get to know that what we really desire is support, community, collaboration. We want to be supported and we want to support others. This works beautifully with the ascension concept that we are moving away from separation consciousness (all the division in the world and focusing on how we are different) to unity consciousness and focusing on how we can work together and compliment each other’s gifts. In this case we may have a fear or belief of being left out, or not having a community or others who understand you. What a powerful entrypoint to ascension! When you spot and release the belief that you are not supported or you don’t have a community you open up to a whole new upgrade of Unity energy that will call in these pieces.
With all the human needs that we have called to the forefront today, what has jumped out to you? What are you now recognizing as one of your entry points to ascension? Can you be gentle on yourself as you move through this ascension journey recognizing that you are unwinding lifetimes upon lifetimes of conditioning? You are doing beautifully!
