There seems to be alot of talk lately about Ascension, Vibration and Consciousness. But what does it all really mean? Humanity has been placing so much emphasis on these concepts lately, that they are now often used as judgmental terms of comparison and competition.
These terms are merely likened to Years in school, no one any better than the other. These terms were created by humanity to delineate the level of learning that a soul has reached.
Of the terms listed above, ascension is the only term related solely to the Earth plane. The trap that one can get into when using the term ascension is that it has a connotation closely related to feelings of who is worthy enough to go before God. All souls are worthy and all souls will, as you label it, Ascend during some point in their journey. Ascension is no more than rising above the vibratory level of the old Earth plane, or the 3rd dimension.
As the timelines of Earth get closer to 2012, there is much doomsday talk as well as much discussion of this term of ascension and how many people will suppose it will take place. For most of you, it will be no different than any other day, as you will be making gradual changes in vibration along with the Earth itself. For many others, "ascension" will not occur for a few more lifetimes and they will choose a different path.
When it comes to vibration, this is a term that describes the amount of density and how quickly that density is moving within one's body system. For those of us in the world of Spirit, we have different levels of vibration as well, all attuned to our specific tasks and duties.
In order for you to communicate with us, you must raise your vibration to one that is compatible with ours, otherwise we both could occupy the same space and you would be completely unaware of our presence. This is why those whose vibration has "ascended" above that of the Earth plane, cannot lower their vibration to incarnate in a physical body. In order for us in the Spirit world to bring our information forth, we must use the services of a channel.
While vibration describes the physical level of change, consciousness is used to describe how much work a soul has done on clearing out their own inner emotional issues. Levels of consciousness do not correspond to age, culture or location on the globe. Vibration and consciousness have a direct correlation and when you raise your consciousness and clear out density in the emotional body from past life energy, your vibration goes up.
Many individuals often use the terms interchangeably; their use is not as important as to have an understanding of how the soul's learning process works on the Earth plane. Now that a New School of Higher Vibratory Studies is being prepared, many souls will have to choose to clear out the past life energy that they carry around in order to be admitted. Those souls that do not make this choice will simply complete their learning elsewhere.
The most important thing is to not concern yourself with the labels of others, but to continue to push forward on your own evolutionary path.
Wherever your journey takes you as an individual soul, know that you are right where you need to be. Once you have reached the stage where you are able to recognize how the Ego (self, Lower self) is trying to control you, then you are ready to be admitted to this emerging New School. By learning to recognize any fear or doubt remaining in your emotional body, you will be on the path to clear it completely. Most importantly DO NOT judge yourself and your progress on your own journey. You are love and you are worthy of so much.
