Current Ascension Symptoms, Tools For Comfort - Part 2

Part II 

More symptoms...but lots of wonderful things are arriving now and due to soon arrive as well! We are really getting over the hump now, so some of these symptoms may have already passed for some of you, or perhaps never occurred at all. 

No sense of place: 

It is very common to have this feeling during or right after a substantial shift of the energies. We receive an internal shake-up, are catapulted to a new level of vibration, and the outside reality no longer fits us. We can thus feel that we no longer belong anywhere, cannot relate to anyone or anything, feel quite alone, and nothing much feels good to us anymore. I have listed some comforts for this symptom further along in this energy alert. 

A need to eat often with what feels like low blood sugar attacks, or simply wanting to gorge on food: 

When we are re-aligning within and greatly morphing, our bodies can really take a hit and thus require much more energy than normal. Protein is the key here. During these times I have to eat every two hours and this includes a healthy dose of protein. The gorging or wanting to fill up is a different thing. With so much loss occurring along with losing much of who we thought we were, we can at times have a desire to fill up somehow. This can manifest as wanting to eat large amounts of food and wanting to really feel full. 

Craving anything "new": 

After we move ahead to a higher vibrating "level" or dimension, it can feel uncomfortable to be in anything "old." For those who are highly sensitive, this can manifest as severe discomfort and an almost gagging or repulsion for anything which existed before. It is in our wiring....we are being encouraged to move ahead into the new, or rather can no longer tolerate the lower vibrations or things of the past. We have been reborn and are now vibrating within a very new space and reality. 

Becoming easily overloaded and overwhelmed: 

With the new energies now in place, much has been dislodged and relocated to a new residency. Much pushing then, is occurring. This can cause feelings of hyperventilation, squeezing, headaches, and an overall feeling of stress. With so much going on within and without, we can easily become overloaded. Rest is vitally important now, as well as saying "no" to much and being willing to stay simple. When I experienced this scenario to an extreme many years ago, I could not even have a conversation, as it used up too much of my energy reserves. Resting and making things simple was my only salvation. This greatly assisted with the panic and anxiety as well. 

Forgetting where you are and losing your place: 

Many times when I am driving in vast expanses of country here in the Southwest, I can forget where I am, who I am, or what reality I am in. This can occur at other times as well when we begin to vibrate higher. It is as if we are not connected to anything at times, and are thus hanging out there in a space which gives us the opportunity to create whatever we choose. As we vibrate higher, we hold onto much less. Energy is in and out, very quickly and moves very fast without clinging or holding on. Anything not being held in our consciousness will simply cease to exist. Getting used to this can be scary or at best confusing, but it can also allow us to create fresh and new at any given moment. 

There are countless other symptoms relating to our ascension process, and many more are listed in The Ascension Primer, as well as in the form of book excerpts for your viewing at the sidebar link on this page at, but in order to remain brief for the purposes of an energy alert, I have listed here the most common for this particular time. 

Tools for Comfort

When we go through a substantial shift into a higher dimension, it can really wreak havoc on much of everything within and without. In this regard, it can greatly help if can find ways to stay connected to the higher vibrating energies, as so much else is falling away. During these times we really need to feel good again, and connecting to higher ways of being and living can greatly soothe us. Below are some remedies which I have found to be very helpful during these times: 

Stay in your creativity as much as possible. In the higher realms, creativity is what it is all about. Thus, creativity always carries a high vibration no matter what dimension we are residing in. For me, sewing, designing a new fabric project, painting, writing, gardening, cooking, and creating much of anything immediately takes me into a beautiful space and I feel wonderful and connected again. It also serves to get any negative thoughts out of the way, as well as our ego selves! 

Be in the company of as many little ones as possible. Our little ones naturally carry a higher vibration and we can easily feel oh so connected once again. We see them and they see us. They match us so much more closely than much of anything else. My granddaughter Amayah has saved me countless times during an ascension shift. These little ones love us as much as we love them! 

Get distracted and stay away from the news, the outside world if need be, and just keep as busy as possible in your own world. This past week while I was at my daughter's we had no TV, no internet, and spent almost all of our time readying for the arrival home of the babies, playing, laughing, eating, and cuddling. It was pure bliss. The only reality I was aware of was the reality of a loving environment with my family and four grandchildren. We slept together, showered together, massaged each other, combed each other's hair, and basically found ourselves continually in one big ball of golden brown and white skin (my grandchildren are African-American bi-racial)! 

Spend time in nature as much as possible. This can be a tough one right now, as even when we are in nature, we can still pick up all the changing and disruptive energies. But the earth is ascending as our vehicle, and being around her energies can connect us as well. Here in the high desert of New Mexico we are experiencing the monsoons and it is awesomely beautiful. Incredible sunsets, magnificent cloud formations, the smell of wet sage, and wildflowers abounding can make one feel as if they have arrived in heaven. 

Take a break and rest. If you are able to, take a day designated just for you. Read a trashy magazine, lay in bed all day, go for a walk, read a pleasurable book (not a self-help book!), tinker around the house, or just sit in the sun. Things will indeed begin to rev up for you again, if they have not yet begun to do so, so a time out now can really be what is needed.

Bond with your animal companions. They are a part of our individual community and our family and it can feel wonderful to spend as much time with them as possible as a part of our whole. 

Just stay away from what is crashing and re-aligning...or stay in your sacred space. Our sacred space, or what we have created, is very much in alignment with who we are. Thus, we can feel secure, grounded, and just plain good when we are there. Staying home can feel best at times. 

What Is Yet To Come 

Things will be settling down as our re-connections become more and more intact, and this is already beginning now. And yes, everyone will begin to experience miracles and new beginnings. Hitting rock bottom created opportunities for change for many, so then, much will be re-structured, re-aligned, and settled into very new spaces. 

Much will be different and will continue to evolve and change in a disruptive and destructive way until we reach 2012. Thus, there will continue to be upheavals for a few more years for many, but most of everything will be intact and ready for the very New World to be created fully by 2012. 

Coming together in community will be paramount, and we will be forming smaller groups of supportive souls who know each other intimately in times to come. Our old ways of living and being created separation, anonymity, and the like, and this will soon be a reality of the past. 

Travel will be greatly compromised, and this will serve to support the unity reality. Air and auto travel will be highly limited to those of affluence, and air travel will almost be rare. Train travel will be the norm and serve as the primary source of movement into other areas, as well as smaller inventions for very local travel yet to be introduced. 

Families and loved ones will relocate in order to be together geographically and to serve as support units for their whole. The walls of judgment, separation, and ego-personality states will rapidly dissipate through these times of change. The area where I currently reside is comprised of retired Buddhist monks, a strong gay community, retired main stream individuals, healers, Mormons, and many creative artists. Everyone here gets along as we need to support each other. It becomes easy to see only the soul, beauty, and gifts and talents of another while disregarding the package they are contained in, as we are all one and we greatly need each other. And this is how it will be for most everyone soon. We will actually finally "see" each other! 

"Local" will be paramount. Smaller communities will sustain themselves and support each other. And this is when our own special gifts and talents will be needed, recognized, and highly revered. This is the way of the higher realms. And yes, smaller communities can exist within a metropolitan area as well. Where I currently live, the nearest store is an hour away. But we have avid gardeners and growers here, a strong farmer's market, we each share our experiences and supports for sustainable and natural building, and I can literally hike, write, get my mail, connect with others, take yoga, and much else without leaving my own back yard. In this way, the gas prices have very little impact as well. I rarely need to get in my car. Running errands is virtually extinct. 

Barack Obama will become president of the US. His soul has predestined this path at this particular time. He carries past life energy of Abraham Lincoln and other masters and highly evolved beings. This has been planned at higher levels for some time now. He brings the energy of unity and change and will have an effect which we have not seen in eons of time. I have known this for quite some time, but Hillary followers got very angry with me! If you are one who favors John McCain, please refrain from letting me know. This was not my idea...I am just the messenger! 

The supports we have longed for, for so very long, will finally arrive. And they will come in the form of each other. Financial supports will arrive through our store-fronts (kindly find more detailed information about store-fronts in the energy alert for July 9th located in the archives). 

August of 2008 will bring in some beautiful energy. Much will have been resolved and settled in by then, and thus, more will be intact at last. We will experience another opening to the higher levels, and like fairy dust being sprinkled over us, the magic will appear at every turn. I tear up when I see these times as they are so very beautiful. 

Why Healing Can Be Detrimental When We Reach A Higher Vibration 

After we reach a higher vibration within, we are then vibrating higher than our old wounds, past experiences, and the like. In other words, we have evolved beyond lower vibrating experiences which caused whatever needed to be healed. If we receive a healing in this new state of being, it can only serve to take us back into old denser energy and re-activate something which no longer exists. A healing at this stage can really screw us up and get us out of alignment and off track, and is most certainly not necessary. 

This mostly pertains to certain types of counseling, healing modalities which serve to clear out old energies by needing to connect to them first, or any modality that focuses on what is "wrong." 

In addition, the ascension process serves to prepare us for the higher realms completely on its own. It is a beautiful process that knows exactly what it is doing quite naturally. If we try to assist or interfere, to expedite it or make it happen by ourselves, we will only serve to open way too fast, create discomfort, jump ahead of where we are and thus not be aligned, and perhaps make our loving non-physical care takers wonder what in the world we are doing as they are so lovingly monitoring the whole process! 

In the beginning stages of ascension healings can be very helpful. They can serve to relieve some of the pain and suffering resulting from the higher energies hitting and activating old wounds which need to be cleared and released. But even then, this assisting process needs to be monitored very carefully and it can be tricky. 

So then, for those just beginning their journey, healings can greatly help. But after a certain threshold has been met, they only serve to be detrimental to the recipient. Many of you who are healers will know through your expertise who needs what and when. You are masters at connecting to the higher energies and allowing them to run through you while getting out of the way. 

I have not had a healing in many years and have been fine. Most of what I am referring to here is in regard to the ascension process. I still go to the dentist, took an antibiotic when I had a kidney stone, and would seek medical attention if needed in an emergency (such as a rattlesnake bite!), although I have not been to a doctor for many years. 

Hope this helps those of you who have been can be difficult to explain but I would imagine you get the drift, and if you are called to be a healer (as we all have the ability to heal), you would have this sense and expertise without me explaining. 

In addition, as we evolve higher, we begin to have the desire to simply have a life. We want to create the life of our dreams and be in it. We no longer have a desire to save or fix. Healers will still be needed though, for those evolving up the ascension ladder, so healers will still be needed and highly revered in this arena. 

A Post Script 

Okay, okay, because so many of you have hinted and inquired (smile).....yes, Phil and I have re-united and have been very much together for several weeks now. It was time for someone who was a much better match for me to arrive, and it turned out to be Phil. He had made some dramatic shifts, come into his soul shoes, and we were thrown back together in a miraculous and synchronistic way. So many times I have told him, "Who are you and what happened to Phil?" I have certainly had some changes in my energy as well. 

Expecting someone completely different to arrive, I had to realize that the form that someone different came in did not matter, and when I realized this, it was perfection! A re-birth, a very new beginning, almost like a re-incarnation into a new reality with him, is now at our disposal. We are currently working on creating a dvd of tours of the ancient ruins and the like, in order to bring to you information about living and being in the higher dimensions...just like the ancients did. Although still living in separate residences (and we will for awhile), we are also putting together a new home on my land which will be in alignment with the cosmos, off grid, and very connected to the star beings as well. We hope to share our project with you via dvd, as we will both be residing there when it is ready. 

Thank you so much for all your support through our journey. We have had concerns that we would appear flakey and unstable, so wanted to wait awhile until we made our re-union public. Our relationship now is completely different than before, and I can only say that it is ultimately the relationship of my dreams. Phil completed years of opening, aligning, and connecting to Source in one short year and a half...he is a remarkable man and I am so very blessed. Although a very ancient soul, he knew nothing of metaphysics, ascension, and the like when I met him. Now he speaks to the non-physicals more frequently than I do! 

Wishing you heaven in your heart, starlight in your soul, and miracles in your life in these miraculous times...

Until next time,
