Welcoming in 2021 (and How to Deal with Ascension)

Well, we finally made it to 2021, saying goodbye to the challenging, yet enlightening year of 2020. Happy new year! I needed to take a little break from writing over the holidays. I definitely felt a shift in the energies since December 21, they feel lighter and less oppressive now, despite the fact that lockdown rules are tightening once again. I had some things happen on the twin flame front too, that I needed to, and still am, dealing with and integrating. So Christmas and New Years was spent with family. It was quiet, but nice.

Anyway, I promised in my last post that I would share some ways to handle the intense energies of ascension. Even though our entire planet is currently going through a spiritual awakening and ascension, it is also a very personal process. How we experience and deal with it is highly individual. Nevertheless, I will share some of the things that have worked for me, in the hopes that it will help you too.

My own spiritual awakening began in earnest at the beginning of 2017, when I had a powerful (yet gentle) kundalini awakening. This really pushed my ascension process into high gear, but even before then I had slowly been awakening over several years, starting with my mother’s death back in 2001. Ever since her death I became very committed to working on myself, and I took several courses in vibrational healing, Reiki and yoga, and practiced them regularly, as well as went to therapists and healers over the course of many years. I believe this helped me immensely once the kundalini awakening arrived, although the process I’ve been in since has still been very intense.

When you have a kundalini awakening, your chakras are blasted open and you feel the energy of love coursing through you. It is complete bliss, and you feel one with the universe, with God, or whatever you prefer to call it. This will usually last for a while (how long varies from person to person, for me it was a few weeks), but eventually the kundalini comes down again, and a deep healing process begins. The goal of this process is to raise the kundalini permanently and raise your frequency into a constant state of love (what is referred to by many as the 5th dimension, or 5D).

Of course, pain, fear and trauma cannot exist in this state, and so they begin to come up to be cleared. This is the most challenging part of the process, and it can be very heavy for a while. For me the ascension process has coincided with the twin flame journey, and this journey has been the main source of triggering these deep wounds, that needed to come up for clearing and release. I’ve been challenged in all my dysfunctional believes about love, which makes sense, when the goal is to bring back a union with love. Your ego is “shredded”, in order to bring back a conscious connection with your higher self.

The challenge, in other words, is to deal with the love and intense energies that are pouring in (sexual energy also being one of them), but also the trauma that is coming up for release. For the former, I would suggest grounding as the number one tool. Going for walks in nature is wonderful as it gets your energy moving. Taking baths with Epsom salts (and include some essential oils) or the ocean, walking barefoot on the sand are all great ways to ground the energy. The earth, salts and water will also remove any excess energy. Meditation can also be good to calm you down, as the excess energies can make you feel restless and “wired”. Or put your energies into a creative project. My own awakening got me back into making music again, and I’m getting ready to release a new song very soon(!).

The trauma that comes up to be cleared can be trickier, as you are forced to confront them once again, and you will feel the pain of them acutely and intensely. Both trauma and karma from this life and past lives, as well as ancestral karma, must be cleared on this journey. First and foremost, it’s important to feel whatever pain you’re feeling, allowing yourself to feel it as long as you need to, and the feeling will then automatically clear by itself. One of the biggest issues when healing is that we tend to resist it, as we don’t want to feel bad. It makes sense to want to push negative feelings down and forget about them, since nobody wants to feel bad. But unfortunately, when doing that, we just delay the inevitable, as it will come back at some point and cause you further pain in the meantime. So give yourself time to sit with it. Accept that you’re feeling bad, and don’t push yourself when you’re feeling down. Meditate or journal on it, and see if you can find the root of the pain (you don’t always have to though, in order to clear it).

Most of the time, this will work fine to help you clear any pain that is surfacing. Perhaps help it along with some yoga and exercise, as again, it is important to get the energy moving, and that will help with clearing it. Sometimes, though, there will be some energy that just feels stuck, and can be harder to get at. Then it may be good to seek the help of others. Vibrational healing, hypnosis, past life regression, soul journeys and many other modalities too numerous to mention can be of help, and I urge you to seek help when you feel you need it, as it can make a world of difference.

What it comes down to is that this is your personal journey of healing and ascension, and the more you delve into that, the more you’ll realize that it is about finding what is right for you. Connecting with your inner guidance (or higher self), and feel into what is best for you at any given time, is always number one, no matter what anyone else may try to tell you (including me). The more you do this, the more you will heal, and the more you will step into your power. This journey is just as much about that, about becoming a sovereign being. Connecting with your inner guidance can help you with many other things too, not just with your healing. It can assist you in expressing your creativity, in your job, in your relationships and so on. Your dreams may be part of this guidance also.

What has been the most helpful to me in my own ascension process, is to have a regular yoga practice (of Kundalini yoga and meditation), working out on and off (strength and cardio), and taking it one day at a time. Feeling into what I need for the day is important, allowing inspiration to come when it does, allowing myself to rest when I need it, and seeking help when I need it. Having likeminded friends and people to talk to are also invaluable.

I hope this has given you some ideas for how to deal with your ascension process. I created a meditation a while back to connect with your inner guidance, that you are also welcome to try out. It’s free and you can find it on my meditation page. If you have any questions or feel stuck and want help from me, feel free to contact me for a free consultation. We’re all in this together, and I wish for my own experiences to help others on this challenging but rewarding journey.

I wish you a happy 2021, and as always, sending you love & light!
