What Is Ascension?

Ascension is a term you will have heard being used quite widely in spiritual, healing, and religious circles and often with differing meanings. Ascension can mean different things to different people. It is often presented in a complicated way in healing circles with a set structure of attainment, vibrational and dimensional levels. This makes it quite complicated for beginners to understand or confuses when there are slightly different versions of the understanding of the term. So what does ascension mean?

What Is Ascension?

I like to think of Ascension in its most basic form, and that is the process of continually growing, evolving, and ultimately expanding your awareness and fully understanding that you are one with creation.

Ascension moves you up and into a higher vibration. Ascension makes you grow, take stock of your life and ultimately clear and leave behind all the things that no longer serve you. The more you increase your vibration, the more you grow spiritually and experience enlightenment.

Ascension is not something that happens to spiritual people; it is happening to everyone. It is often presented as a mysterious process only able to be attained by a select few. This is not the case, as we all have the potential to grow, learn, and move forward.

Ascension is the continuous process of enlightenment. I want to emphasise ‘continuous process’ as there is no destination. Often enlightenment is viewed as a one-off ‘special’ event where all of a sudden you attain all the spiritual information that is knowable. This information is already known. Enlightenment is the discovery of spiritual knowledge of something that was not previously known through your experience (action). It expands on what was known and adds spiritual understanding to the universe.

This is why ascension is a process, not a destination. It is also why we can all ascend and experience enlightenment one step at a time.

Ascension And Energy Healing

The process of enlightenment on our energy bodies can be seen in the mind, heart, and on a cellular level. We have a left-brain consciousness (ego) and a right-brain consciousness (accessing/processing spiritual information). The heart centre is where we process emotional aspects of awareness. When we ascend, our cells start to accumulate the higher vibrational energy of the universe’s potential. If you have ever perceived someone as shining brightly, then the accumulation of higher vibrational energies within the cellular level is probably what you have perceived.

The saying ‘love and light’ actually has a much deeper meaning than what may have previously been thought.
