It’s Only a Growth Period

Excerpt from the book: Spirit Matters: Down-to-Earth Tools for a Spirited Life.

You are moving toward and preparing for ascension. This isn’t as mysterious as it may sound. Ascension doesn’t have to mean leaving this planet and hanging out with Isis or Saint Germain. Ascension is an everyday occurrence. Ascension is when we leave one mode of being and rise into another higher, faster, lighter one. It is when we make changes in our perspective, our preferences and our way of moving through life. At these times we are we are moving from the third dimension toward the fifth. The fifth dimension is a place where what you think very quickly manifests.

As we ascend toward the fifth dimension, we step up awareness in all aspects of who we are. Emotionally, we become less volatile and more joyous. Mentally, we experience balance between our brain’s hemispheres and an integration of our intuition and analytical skills. Spiritually, we awaken our creative genius. As we take these steps toward total integration and alignment, we may experience a number of symptoms. And this is a transition. This transition is called a Growth Period.

You may discover your body, mind and emotions doing unusual things during this time of transition. You may bump into walls, want to sleep more, feel irrational emotions, lose your keys and wallet, put the stapler in the refrigerator, put your underwear on backwards. It’s all okay. This is just a Growth Period. Laugh at yourself. Give yourself a break. This is a time to nurture your body and give it what it wants. You see, what is happening is you (as non-physical or Spirit) are taking huge leaps in your evolution toward freedom. Your slower, denser, physical system (body, emotions, mind) is working hard to keep up. Make it easy on your total self and treat the denser parts well. Go for walks, sleep in, pet the cat, lie around and do nothing, have more sex, watch movies, have less sex, eat something special, take a bath. Take care of yourself.

You are simply moving to a place that includes more of you and less of the noise that isn’t you. Congratulations!! Even though a Growth Period is a time to congratulate yourself on your spiritual progress, sometimes when we enter this phase of growth, it hits our physical system as something uncomfortable.

If you resist this important time, it will only become more uncomfortable. You may see your physical self as a cherished cat-friend. You feed and pet your cat, make sure she’s comfortable and happy; you hold her and scratch her in all the parts she likes to be scratched. And she gives back to you. She purrs and kneads your legs and rubs her forehead on yours. If you treat your body as you would a special animal friend, it will then allow you to make these steps into the next dimension much smoother.

Take a nap. It’s only energy.
It will be over soon.
Let yourself drool and stare off into space ........... You’re not alone.
