For Anyone Still Asking "When is Ascension Going to Happen?"

Video version with Commentary is here

This question came in from Richard* (name changed) about 'ascension'. I'm sharing it here for anyone who has the same concerns. 


I have been reading several ascension blogs. Most of them have info that humanity would ascend on 21 Dec 2012 and since then the dates simply kept on changing and even the so called channeled info from higher dimensional beings and ascended masters is wrong so many times. Just don't know what to believe anymore and like so many other readers and followers I am more than frustrated to just keep waiting for a date and when nothing happens then conveniently some new date comes up and this has been going on for so long.

So my question is if we are going to ascend at all then when do you think its gonna happen? If it is so difficult to give a date then is it possible to atleast give a time frame? So many people who are working as channelers and light workers, how hard can it be to just get a date?


From my perspective, and what I've been saying in my writings for over 10 years, is that 21 Dec 2012 is the end of an evolutionary cycle, and then a new evolutionary cycle started. According to many indigenous cultures, particularly the Mayans, we have just completed a great cycle of approx. 25000 years and also a grand cycle of approx. 125000 years made up of 5 great cycles. 

The way that I have always seen it is, Earth at this time has entered, and is moving deeper into right now, a place in space where she is essentially being flooded by high vibrational energy waves, of a higher frequency than those waves that we were exposed to in our last cycle. From what I have received and seen and felt, these waves are coming to us from the galactic centre, while Earth is moving across the Galactic equator, thus offering us a very rare window of alignment with that central energy - although that could just be one part of a much larger picture. The messages I've received indicate that the waves are also coming to us from the centre through the sun, and thus we are so much more sensitive these days to relatively 'common' solar activity events such as the solar flares.

The general message that has come through me, over and over again, is that Earth and all on her are shifting into this higher frequency energy, and everything that is not in alignment with that (whether within us, in our personal lives, in our society, corporations, goverments, media etc) will go through a process of collapse or transformation.  We can see that happening now. As we shift into this higher frequency, we are experiencing the awakening of more of our greater/star/collective memory, opening up to our innate gifts, becoming more conscious and seeking to embody and express that consciousness in every way and in every area of life. Again, we are seeing that now in more and more people.

I have spent time with both Mayan and Native American elders, and they all have confirmed that they too see the Shift in a similar way to the above. I don't resonate with the 'Ascension' theory that all the 'awake' people will be beamed up somewhere.  We are shifting 'upward' yes, but we are shifting in vibration, in our body, here on Earth. 

I also never resonated with the idea being sprouted out there that we'd all magically 'ascend' on one day. If you know anything of astrology, transits of slow moving planets can affect us over a period of months or years, not just on one day - so times that by 1000 for an evolutionary cycle gear-shift - The Shift is a process, and we are in it right now. And for sure, it has shifted gears since 'that date'.

Dec 21 2012, aside from being the end date of a cycle, was something I always saw as a crossroads of sorts, a deadline by which we really had to decide, as a collective, whether we would shift up or shift out. Really, those were the choices - shift up with the Earth as she moved into the higher vibration (ie wake up, and act on our consciousness) or shift out - game over for humanity.

We have been called to change our ways, and through the massive numbers we are seeing this year alone signing online petitions and marching in street protests against governments etc, I believe we are hearing that call. Interestingly enough the ancients referred to the point in space that Earth is moving through now, a point they knew she moved through at each change of cycle period, as a crossroads.

Yes it's an anti-climax for anyone expecting a literal light to come out of the sky or the spaceships to finally land. Life is a mystery, and to be honest no-one knows if any of those things will happen one day! But there is no 'waiting' for another date. We are here, we have gone through labour, the birth as such is happening now, and now we have to work with the energies of a newborn at the same time as many are struggling to let go of their old roles and ways of being which no longer fit or work.

In many other ways, it is climax after climax on a weekly (and sometimes daily) basis if we are to look at the awakening going on right now, the physical ways in which it is manifesting in our society, and the way in which we can literally feel, and are being affected by, the higher energies now present here and continually increasing to flood the planet.  Many are also experiencing a 'post-natal' depression of sorts - their old roles are over, the 'date' which many had focused on for so long has come and gone, and now we are left with ...what exactly?

We are now left with the reality that we are responsible for our reality here. We decide how this story unfolds. We choose what this next chapter will look like. We are finally being offered all the resources and tools we need to create a new type of Earth with a new type of Humanity. We are being offered the gifts of awakening, consciousness and greater awareness as to who we really are and what we are here to do. A small group of people have been open to those gifts thus far, but now it is happening to millions and millions of people. 

These gifts are not here so that we can meditate longer, they are here so that we can embody them and use them.  Action without consciousness has led us to a fragile crossroads. Consciousness without action will leave us frustrated and feeling disempowered. It is the combination of consciousness and action that are the markers of this new time - action meaning anything you choose to consciously do to embody who you truly are. Focused Visualisation or Prayer can be an active expression of consciousness - action doesn't mean we all need to be on the streets protesting.

On a final note, the word "Apocalypse" so much associated with these times, comes from the Greek and Latin word meaning 'lifting of the veil', 'that which was hidden to be revealed'. We are seeing this now constantly within us, and in our outer world. What we are seeing isn't always easy - in fact it can be challenging, uncomfortable and downright shocking and disturbing. Yet the 'revelations' part of this process is essential, empowering and liberating. We are being roused out of our slumber, and confronting that which has held us back and limited us, both personally and as a humanity. 

Much love,

Amazing response Dana. Thank you so much. I am relatively new to the concepts of Ascension and the "New Age" and never knew about any date. However everything that you explained that is happening on/to Earth and within us has/was/is happening in my life. Discovering SpiritLibrary was a huge relief as suddenly everything in my life made sense and I realized I wasn't alone and I wasn't going crazy. I am so grateful to you and other gifted, wise and insightful Spirit Guides who help me/us on a daily basis understand this process and navigate the changes that are transforming us into who we truly are :)

Truly and with Love,
Keryn xoxo

The confusion about dates of ascension is primarily due to the poor choice of words. The operative words which were introduced in 1987 "Harmonic Convergence" should never have been replaced by the word "Ascencion". As the writer points out, our bodies and earth are in a continual and gradual process of harmonic(harmoniously) converging with the higher energies of divine cosmic love while still remaining on earth. Lord Metatron (via Tyberonn) has pointed out the next major sift will be in 2038 while earth and those still on it will ascend fully into the 5th dimension in 300 years time. Earth is presently only on the 1st rung of 12 step in the 5th dimension. Harmonic convergence (Ascension)is actually about each individual re-awakening their psychic abilities and 3rd eye (in their own chosen time) that will enable them to connect knowingly with the realm of divinity and their twin flame aspects while still on earth. Many have already achieved this goal and mission and have no need to listen to erroneous or misleading information, for their knowingness comes directly from "Source".

Hi Dana,

I believe that the events that are about to transpire on earth will be interpreted incorrectly by so many people who will remain on earth and who will be told a lie by the "masters", "ascended beings", "energies" who will at that point make themselves known to those who remain. You are right in saying that there will be an ascension soon and it will be an instantaneous event where millions of people will suddenly vanish. However, how the event will be explained to those who remain on earth will be a complete lie.

This is what I see happening:

When Damascus is destroyed, millions of people will around that time be removed from earth. Just after the disappearance of these people, entities that are currently not making their presence known physically, will step unto the scene, make their presence known and explain that they have come to help the human race to achieve the next step in their evolution. (Ask yourself: What is keeping them from stepping onto the scene today? They are obviously a lot more powerful than we as humans are and yet are they prevented from stepping for

Hi Astera, just to clarify I don't hold the view that there will be an ascension soon and that millions will vanish. I believe we are in the process of evolutionary shifting right now and that this is a process not an event. I appreciate that others hold a different view,

Much love,
