Ascension Sickness : Mystic Musings from the Zen Room

Ascension Sickness

by Valerie O'Brien on 02/20/17

It has been a while ...ok a whole year...since I last posted anything on my Mystic Musings from the Zen Room blog. Not because I have had nothing to say...but because every other spiritual/wellness blog or website has pretty much voiced what I was thinking; feeling; or all around wanting to express...and they did it pretty thoroughly and seemed to be spot on to what is going on energetically with our planet and how this is affecting us and our lives. Sooo I didn't feel I needed to add my 2 cents in...since that information was already out there for us to peruse if so desired. 

We are now almost 2 months into 2017...the energies are intense and there is definitely a Fire energy happening that is propelling many of us to really address and take control of our life paths and resolve health issues in ways we have hesitated to in the past. Yes this is a One Year (if you follow numerology and number vibrations)...so new beginnings sort to speak - planning out what our next 9 years are going to be about...and add into that... it is a Fire Rooster year (from Chinese astrology)..meaning a lot is happening with intense creative energy...and this information/knowledge is all over the inter-net...I get e-mails almost daily about these energies and how they are affecting us and the planet...but I feel the need to address the Elephant in the room! Yup here's my two cents...I want to talk a little bit about what so many of us have been experiencing for several years now and not fully understanding the why's or if understanding...are still just plain over-whelmed with continuously dealing on a day to day basis with so many issues involving out health and spiritual wellness. People are having difficulties eating a normal diet (even very healthy diets), past emotional issues are arising to be dealt with once and for all...sometimes leaving one feeling overwhelmed or depressed. Many are feeling a strong desire to go to sleep and not wake up...but are not suicidal...just feeling so done with everything. These are just a few of the things many, and I do mean many people I personally know (including myself) have been dealing with. I have had this conversation many times with my Reiki clients and students about all these mysterious health issues that have been plaguing so many of us. 
Now I am fortunate in that I teach a Reiki Shaman program in which I discuss Ascension signs, symptoms and how to deal with them. The Ascension flue or sickness is very real...it is our bodies going through changes at the cellular/DNA level...we are changing..."evolution baby"...and it is not comfortable or fun at all...but necessary! Our planet Earth is going through these changes as well...hence why we hear and see so many Natural disasters happening all over the world. The Earth's vibration has been shifting and increasing over the last few years and there has been much healing involved with this...and at times the energy has felt so chaotic. This is our beautiful planet going through the Healing process ..."a painful time in our life is what we call a healing crisis...we are letting go of something old and opening to something new".... so major healing is taking place and the toxic energy is being eliminated to make way for the fresh new energy/vibration. Sometimes we need to experience chaos to clear away all the debris that was preventing us from moving forward. So in order for the Earth to fully step into this new vibration it is ascending to, it needs to detox the old negative/stagnant energy in order to make way for the new higher vibration. And so is the human race...in order to continue to live on the earth we need to shift and change our own vibration...and our bodies, minds and souls are doing this automatically...and if we resist...like I tend to do...it means things become a whole lot more difficult during the process...way more chaotic. 
One thing that helps keep me going during really intense times is focusing on the Light and how much I have to be truly grateful for...so even in the midst of chaos like the Ascension flue...there is much to be grateful for...we are still here...the earth and all her inhabitants are incredible and having friends and family to talk to about stuff helps me take another step forward on my path...and extra TLC goes a long way in helping me cope when in the midst of chaos... a port in the storm for a brief respite... long walks in Nature...warm sea salt baths...extra rest and family time...technology breaks...dis-connect from the constant deluge of News and TV violence. 
I have just briefly touched on the topic of Ascension Sickness. For better clarity and understanding... an awesome website to check out more on the Ascension process and what it is all about is... Cedar Rivers site... http://www.cedar-rivers.com/articles/consciousness-spirituality/70-ascension-symptoms-from-homo-sapien-to-homo-luminous.html She thoroughly goes into detail all the signs, symptoms and how to ease yourself through them. Worth a read.

Many blessings on your own ascension path...hope to see you on the other side! :)

OUR DEEPEST FEAR...written by Marianne Williamson in "A Return to Love"

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.       It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? 
Actually, who are you not to be? 
You are a child of God/Divine Light. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure about you. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us: it's in everyone.
And, as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

​**This is one of my very favorite quotes written by a very gifted woman...if you are not familiar with Marianne Williamson...you may just want to explore her work...you won't be sorry you did! In light & love, Val
