Ascension

or: Evolution beyond the Darwinian scale

What is Ascension?

The process of transformation of the individual and collective human consciousness from limitation to full soul empowerment that is being called Ascension can be defined in various ways, e.g.:

  • In terms of energy physics, Ascension is a literal frequency rise of one's consciousness (from 3rd density to 4th+ density awareness).
  • In terms of ontology, Ascension is the realization that the self is the external world; that all is within.
  • In terms of epistemology, Ascension is knowing that you are the reality you previously believed to be inside of.
  • In terms of consciousness, Ascension is the experience of being the dimension you previously believed you existed in, and thus the acquiring of higher-dimensional abilities such as the ability to see different versions of, and choose between, "timelines" (4th-dimensionally-causal paths).

Tom Murasso precisely explains what Ascension means:

ASCENSION - How To Make the DIMENSIONAL SHIFT ~ Dr Tom Murasso

We are coming upon a new era - a shift of the ages as prophesied by the ancients. No, this new era is not the end of the world; it is a new beginning as the Earth - and anyone who chooses to join her - will shift from the third dimension to the fourth and fifth dimension.

Sadly, most people aren't ready for - or even aware of this shift. But alas, it is still happening. And, for those in the dark, it may be a bumpy ride...

A bumpy ride in the sense that, according to the Essassani collective oversoul (channeled through Bashar), in the fall of 2016, "everything will change". The idea is that at that point, shifting timelines will become more difficult, and thus if one is in a "negative" timeline, it may not be one's preferred type of experience. Thus, one who is strongly attached to a belief system conforming to the artificial parameters of the objective reality metaparadigm is less likely to become aware of these advanced metaphysical ideas, and thus might travel down the path toward transhumanism as the Greys did.

The Earth, in a sense, as we said, already exists in multiple parallel versions. Right now, many of you are agreeing to experience the idea of a multitude of those versions seemingly in one place, but as you now go through the next 5 of your years — what we call "the span" [2010-2015] — and through the center point of what you call the end of the cycle of 2012 and the beginning of a new cycle, it is functioning like a splitting prism, so that as you go through that, more and more every day from that point forward, the different reality vibrations will continue to diverge more and more until such time as somewhere around the idea of between 2025 and 2033, many of those different divergent realities will no longer be able to experience individuals that are of a different vibration in a different reality.

Bashar

Ascension couch Chris Bourne explains Ascension another way:

Choosing Ascension

"It's been prophecised and spoken of for centuries. It's magical and mystical. To the uninitiated it may seem way out, weird and wacky; but in fact its grounded in the quantum fabric of science. It is very ordinary, awesomely ordinary! It is our Ascension..."

The Ascension of Gaia

The idea is that the Earth consciousness — the living Earth organism — is herself ascending, or has already ascended, anchoring the Earth energies in a higher, more harmonious density (the 5th density), while extending an invitation to anyone who wishes to join her:

Ascension of Gaia and self realisation

[Published on Mar 2, 2015] For those who have been on the spiritual path for some time it is no real mystery that the next step in evolution involves moving to a higher paradigm; a new paradigm based on respect for all sentient life. In this video, taken from a recent seminar in Glastonbury Town Hall, Open explores Gaia's karma; Gaia's ascension; what has been standing in the way. He looks at the open invitation for humankind to evolve at this time and why self-realisation is an important key on that journey.

To minds "trapped" in the objective reality delusion, the idea of Ascension is so completely beyond any notions of what is real that it cannot be perceived as anything but "New Age mumbo jumbo". Most humans on Earth don't even realize that the planet, herself, is a living entity, just as much as any other thing in existence, experiencing at various levels of consciousness.

The planet Earth is currently attaining a state of ascension. The Being who has Earth as her body (much the same as humans have theirs) has reached a point where she is choosing this major step in her evolution. She is currently releasing all condensed and negative energy and raising her entire physical form and its surrounding subtle bodies (which she has just the same as the human beings). All that which is part of the Earth and identifies itself with her such as the flora and fauna operating in the natural flow of the universe, simply moves with her. Any life stream that has separated or is not a natural part of that Earth, who has evolved to a point of ‘free will and choice’ to decide its own movement – may or may not choose to Ascend. Human beings and some animals are definitely in this category.

The physics of Ascension

The most effective, most convincing (to the logical left brain), source of information that can help one understand what is happening is Bashar, a channeled extradimensional extraterrestrial "first contact specialist" who explains the energy physics of Ascension as if obvious "simple physics":

Bashar - Densities of body, Ascension

Bashar explains that our body is a compressed density of consciousness on Earth and that it is for many of us now expanding and decompresses our density for Ascension. And that Ascension is not another world that comes, but already exists, and that we are just changing to that frequency.

The purpose of limitation

In regards to the purpose of the experience of darkness (i.e. consciousness' ignorance of the true nature of self under the illusion of separation, and the ontological misunderstanding subset illusion of an objective reality), Bashar uses the rubber band analogy:

Bashar - Rubber band analogy

Bashar talks about why Earth is so dark and why we chose to have such limited perception at this time and how this will help us later.

The idea of the degree to which you have chosen to experience limitation and darkness on your planet, is actually a beautiful thing because, the degree to which you experience the darkness is the degree to which you will also experience the light.

Bashar

The Great Timelines Bifurcation

Bashar explains the idea of the incoming thematic timelines split/bifurcation with the analogies of diverging train tracks and "the splitting prism":

Bashar | 2012 The Splitting Prism

Using the analogy of a train station, Bashar says that the train tracks ("timelines", or thematic causal paths) begin/began to segregate more and more from each other around 2012, such that by around 2025–2033 they become distinct separate realities wherein it eventually (around 2050) becomes impossible to jump from one to another:

Bashar – The real meaning of 2012

The idea is that there are two general types of experiential realities, or possible "futures", that could be labeled energy-polarity-wise as "positive" and "negative", and energy-density-wise as ascensional (free from fear) and transhumanist (increased control/darkness).

positiveascensionorganic cosmic evolutionvoluntaryist / synchronistic4th densitycoherenceindividual (sane)
negativetranshumantechnocratic pseudo-evolutioninvoluntaryist / centralized3rd densitychaoshive (unsane)

As the years progress it becomes ever-increasingly difficult to shift/jump from one increasingly-polarized timeline type to the other, such that by somewhere around the 2020s it becomes nearly impossible to shift from the negative-type timelines to the positive ones. As Bashar has been saying in 2015: "Be on the train you wish to be on. Now. All aboard."

For the purpose of additional perspective, the following talk by Terence McKenna describes a similar idea hypothetically happening 2,000 years ago:

Terence McKenna - Greco-Mayan postmodern star-faring civilization

Terence McKenna shares his science-fictional mushroom-visions of a Greco-Mayan postmodern star-faring civilization: The Great Timestream Bifurcation.

McKenna describes an alternate parallel timeline in which the demiurge wasn't able to distort what the Christ actually was, and this reality would exist simultaneously, in parallel, in a "quantum mechanical half charge".

Ascension and Sophia's Correction

The Sophianic Correction is the idea in the open-ended Gnostic creation myth that the suppression of the divine feminine energy by archontic patriarchy (i.e. the authority-based control system) is coming to an end. The Aeon (goddess) Sophia, which morphed into the planetary body from the Pleroma, thus becoming Gaia-Sophia, is "correcting" the energy imbalance by what might be seen as rather drastic and relatively sudden means. The idea is that the planet herself is ascending, along with those human beings of like vibration who choose to join her. Sophia's correction would mark the end of the influence of the opposing consciousness — or the "archontic mind-virus", as researcher John Lash interprets the Gnostic myth.

Ascension and the Moon

According to Bashar, the Moon is "the engine of Ascension". It was originally a natural body that resulted from an astronomical collision with the Earth, but has been repurposed by various extraterrestrial factions to aid in the "rebalancing of the cycles" of the Earth. Since mid-2014, the "electro-gravitic implants" below its surface (mascons), which are resonating receivers, have been broadcasting an additional stabilizing vibration which represents the vibration of the Earth's Oversoul (Gaia-Sophia's intention).

Ascension and the hybrid children

As a result of the genetic experimentation of the Greys (the alien beings that feature in the alien abduction stories), many humans in our dimension (frequency domain) have hybrid children, some of whom will at some point (during the "contact window" of 2025 to 2033) physically land on the Earth along with the Yahyel (one of the 5 hybrid civilizations). The Greys are not exactly extraterrestrial, but are parallel reality Earth humans (existing in a different frequency domain) who transhumanistically mutated themselves to the point of losing the ability to reproduce. In their quest to continue their species in some form, they created five different generations of Human-Grey hybrids, of which Bashar's Essassani are the third. The YahYel are the fifth and last to be created and are thus closest to humans, and will be the first hybrid extraterrestrial civilization to make open contact with humanity (though one member of the YahYel has apparently already made first contact via channel Shaun Swanson).

The hybrid races all operate at higher frequencies than 3rd density humans; thus, for open contact to become a reality, our frequency has to rise to(ward) 4th density.

The Phoenix Frequency

The "Phoenix frequency" is a term Bashar has used to represent the idea of "rising from the ashes"emerging from darkness into the light of awareness by "transforming outdated systems and ideas into a positive and dynamic new reality":

SiriusTeam1 - Our Future Freedom (Feat. Bashar)

Bashar on ascension to 4th density and the hybridization program.

In the above video, Bashar says:

And you will become as we have become, and will approach the time, and the timing, when you will no longer be quite as physical as you are now, when your vibrational resonance, and the Phoenix Frequency will have uplifted you, to the idea of that rarified state you call 4th density where you are quasi-physical, quasi-spirit, quasi-energy. And you will know the malleability and flexibility of spacetime and you will know, that it is simply your idea within your consciousness. And you will be free to move in that spacetime — as free as we are. To transcend and transverse and transform all ideas of parallel realities into whatever experience you wish them to be, into whatever you observe is relevant for you.

Bashar

An interesting "coincidental" reflection from the SETI idea (the absurdly anthropomorphic false "search" for ET intelligence conducted by physicalists who pay attention only to "authoritative" sources of information):

The [SETI League] organization concentrates on coordinating a global network of small, amateur-built radio telescopes under Project Argus, an all-sky survey seeking to achieve real-time coverage of the entire sky. Project Argus was conceived as a continuation of the all-sky survey component of the late NASA SETI program (the targeted search having been continued by the SETI Institute's Project Phoenix).

Ascended masters

Bashar explains the idea of ascended masters (beings like Jesus/Yeshua, Buddha, Krishna, and many others):

Ascended masters are simply beings who allowed themselves to incorporate within their expression of being in any given reality more or most of the totality of the collective consciousness of that reality, and the vibration raises up, and they can sometimes remain in that reality, dispensing information, sharing information, or they can ascend to the point where they completely leave that reality — maybe even leave physical reality altogether. Ascension is just a matter of degree of frequency, in the same way that you could say that steam is the ascended master of ice.

Bashar

Ascension and lightworkers

Lightwork is the idea of consciously increasing one's vibrational frequency by meditative inner work (which includes the idea of emotional clearing / trauma integration), thus becoming more resonant with higher-frequency beings and experiences.

The definition of a Lightworker is a Human who realizes that there’s more to life than has been seen in 3D reality, and therefore is trying to increase his or her awareness by spiritual means. There are as many Lightworker “types“ as there are Humans. Some are in the discovery stage and some are in the active stage of having identified themselves, and have moved to a place where they’re able to increase their vibration, and therefore affect the very dirt of the planet.

Kryon

Brad Johnson, who channels Adronis from Sirius, provides some contrasting "conscious food for thought" about the idea of shadow work vs. light work in the context of deliberate dense experience of duality. So does researcher Cameron Day, e.g. in his article Why I Am No Longer a Light Worker.

Ascension vs. Transhumanism

All possible "futures" for Humanity and the Earth can be thought of as dividing into "positive" and "negative" timelines in the coming 1-2 decades. The positive timelines are represented by the path to Ascension (cosmic natural evolution), while the negative timelines are represented by the path towards transhumanism (technological pseudo-evolution under the great ontological misunderstanding). In an ontological sense, the positive timelines represent the recognition of the subjective reality metaparadigm, while the negative timelines represent the persistence of the objective reality metaparadigm meme and its technological advancement toward the "merging" of man with machine (which is to say the "next level" of enslavement by the control system).

Each human being has the ability to choose which kind of general thematic timeline he/she wishes to experience ("be in"), until the time window closes (the "train tracks" diverge to become distinct parallel reality types) somewhere around 2017-2025. Logically, physicalists, most scientists, media consumers, and other groupings caught/distracted by the cultural illusion are far more likely to branch into the transhumanism-themed timelines, while younger people are far more likely to branch into the ascensional timelines — even if not knowing about any of these metaphysical ideas, because their Divine Purpose (the soul's incarnational theme) and DNA blueprints naturally make them less prone to the fear-based limiting belief systems promoted by the control system.

Ascension as human evolution

The difference in mind between man and the higher animals, great as it is, certainly is one of degree and not of kind.

Charles Darwin

Or is it? According to Bashar, in concordance with the Sitchin interpretation of the Sumerian creation myth, about 500,000 years ago, an extraterrestrial species, the Anunnaki, came to Earth and genetically modified (in a sense "downgraded", in a sense "upgraded") the DNA of homo erectus and homo habilis, creating what we today call homo sapiens.

From the Darwinian physicalist (fundamentalist-materialist) perspective (within the objective reality metaparadigm), evolution is about "survival of the fittest". In the subjective reality metaparadigm, evolution, while incorporating the idea of natural selection (and other aspects of the "modern evolutionary synthesis", the current paradigm of evolutionary biology), could only ultimately be about changing oneself, because the "external world" that Darwin assumed he was studying is actually within one's consciousness.

Thus, Ascension can be seen as the next evolutionary step of Humanity. Or, at least the next "positive" evolutionary step, allowing for the idea of "negative" timelines that lead to a collective reality reflective of that of the Greys, our parallel reality Human cousins who went the way of transhumanism, creating an extreme experience of disconnection from Source (their heart center), who ended up creating Human-Grey hybrid races such as the Essassani, who are now helping our Ascension process by means of the Moon, and whose metaphysical understanding has been communicated to us via Bashar for 33 years — communications that could seemingly easily form the basis for the creation of an accurate TOE of the subjective reality metaparadigm (for which Tom Campbell has created the first model).

World population 10,000 BC - 2000 ADWorld population 10,000 BC - 2000 AD

Ascension as the cause of the exponential population increase

According to Bashar, the reason there are so many souls incarnating on Earth is to be part of its great transformation of darkness into light. He says that very few worlds have seen the level of darkness and degree of transformation that human consciousness on Earth is now experiencing, which is why Earth is "where it's all happening".

Ascension as the end of the control system

Ascension couch Chris Bourne puts it most simply:

As you embody soul, you naturally eject this intervention from your being, and start to ascend.

Chris Bourne

In other words, when one aligns with the teleological attractor — the Divine Purpose of the soul — the control system's influence is simply higher-dimensionally bypassed, its obstacles effortlessly and automatically flowed around through the path of least resistance. Bourne explains this very passionately:

Transformation of Humanity "Reclaiming our Spiritual Power"

Humanity has reached a fundamental crux point. What do we really need right now? The industrial-military complex has taken over, seeping into all areas of our lives. Humanity been anaesthetised and down graded for aeons. The system is designed perfectly to retard our spiritual evolution; to prevent true, empowered human beingness and interconnectivity with the whole of life. It's become increasingly challenging to be our true selves. It's time for non-compliance with the injustice and inequity of the system. Time to reclaim our spiritual power. The real power is within us. It is time to take it back.

Bashar explains the energy physics of how it works, mechanically:

Bashar – How to vibrationally bypass the control system

Bashar describes the causal mechanism by which any individual expression of consciousness can vibrationally bypass the influence of the control system, which is really just negative belief systems. As Bashar says, there are an infinite number of parallel realities; shift to the one you prefer.

From Bashar's transmission: The Voices In Your Head (2014-09-06) [part 2 @ 22min].

Ascension and the heart

The human heart — long associated with (the experience of) emotions and feelings — is far more than just a mechanical blood pump:

Thinking With Your Heart | Howard Martin [HeartMath]

[Published on Feb 20, 2015] In the last few years, more people than ever -- from different backgrounds and walks of life -- are talking about the heart. More company mission statements make a point to mention the importance of the heart in leadership and customer care.

More speakers, articles and books, both spiritual and non-spiritual, are referring to the heart. Whether people mention speaking from the heart, listening to the heart, connecting with the heart, or following the heart, it is a clear sign that there is increased awareness and movement toward using your heart in all of life’s decisions and actions.

But just what does that mean? Is it possible to move past a philosophical view of the heart and use the latest science and research on the heart to make a better life? Does the heart do more than actually pump blood through out your body and can we harness the power, dare I say intelligence, of the heart to create a happier, more successful and healthier world for ourselves and those around us? [http://TippingPointRadio.com/howard/]

The HeartMath Insititute's "global field environment" is the 5th density in the 5th dimension — the realm of the Higher Mind — which does not exist objectively, independently of, separate from, self. As Einstein put it:

If we think of the field as being removed, there is no space which remains, since space does not have an independent existence.

Albert Einstein

The field, from whence emerges (3rd-dimensional) space and (4th-dimensional) spacetime, is the 5th dimension (the probability space), which is the realm of the Higher Mind, which communicates with the (4th-dimensional) Physical Mind via the heart center — but before the Physical Mind perceives/experiences the higher-dimensional higher-frequency information, it is filtered through and transformed by the belief system structure (including unconscious definitions that are automatically being assigned) of the ego personality structure within the Physical Mind. The Higher Mind arranges the causality of spacetime based on the vibrational resonance of how one is feeling. In other words, the heart communicates 5th-dimensionally — which is why its more subtle workings are so hard to pinpoint with 4th-dimensional scientific instrumentalities — with HeartMath being at the cutting edge of figuring it out by means of measurement.

Howard Martin feels/observes the "massive transformation" that is "around the corner". HeartMath represents the closest science is (or has gotten) to understanding reality.

Ascension symptoms

According to Bashar, "symptoms of 4th density reality include seeing different flows of energy that were heretofore invisible that exist in higher realms". Many people around the planet, in an apparently accelerating rate, are saying that they are experiencing Ascension symptoms. Following are just a few examples:

There are countless more similarly fascinating accounts of people experiencing the symptoms of increasing their vibrational frequency.

Merkabah

The site CrystalLinks explains the idea of the Merkabah:

The Merkabah

Merkabah, also spelled Merkaba, is the divine light vehicle allegedly used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms. "Mer" means Light. "Ka" means Spirit. "Ba" means Body. Mer-Ka-Ba means the spirit/body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, (wheels within wheels), spirals of energy as in DNA, which transports spirit/body from one dimension to another.

[...]

Mer-Ka-Ba Meditation

In modern esoteric teachings, it is taught that the MerKaBa is an interdimensional vehicle consisting of two equally sized, interlocked tetrahedra of light with a common center, where one tetrahedron points up and the other down. This point symmetric form is called a stella octangula or stellated octahedron which can also be obtained by extending the faces of a regular octahedron until they intersect again.

In his books, researcher and physicist Drunvalo Melchizedek describes this figure as a "Star Tetrahedron", since it can be viewed as a three dimensional Star of David. By imagining two superimposed "Star Tetrahedrons" as counterrotating, along with specific "prana" breathing techniques, certain eye movements and mudras, it is taught that one can activate a non-visible 'saucer' shaped energy field around the human body that is anchored at the base of the spine.

Depending on the height of the person doing the exercise, this field is about 55 feet across. Once activated, this 'saucer' shaped field is capable of carrying ones consciousness directly to higher dimensions.

Teal Swan explains the merkabah:

The Merkabah - Teal Swan

The merkabah is a geometric pattern that can move either like a torus or like counter rotating light fields. The energy field of a person, which is always present, takes on this pattern when their consciousness is no longer purely focused physically and is now able to travel or is traveling through other dimensional realities. We can take this one step further though. A fully activated merkabah indicates that a person is able to take their body through star gates and to other dimensional realities, instead of simply take their consciousness to other dimensional realities whilst leaving their body behind.

The fully activated merkabah indicates that a person is able to transform the entire body into light. It is a form of light travel. In other words, in the final stages of merkabah activation, through a shift in consciousness, the triad of the mind, spirit and body completely integrates into one pattern of light and is then able to transcend the limitation of the physical time space reality.

Mer Ka BaThe spirit is the soul's incarnation.
Rotating merkabahNote that the tetrahedrons are counter-rotating, even if one's mind wants to see them rotating in the same direction.

The merkabah is the "chariot of Ascension". It is a light vehicle made of two counter-rotating intersecting tetrahedra, forming a star duo-tetrahedron.

The Star of David, Teal says, may have come about due to people observing the merkabah, which is why it represents the idea of the soul/spirit transcending the temporal world.

It has long been thought that it sits inside the base of one's base chakra, and when activated expands in a torus form to emcompass the body, and then transforms into the tetrahedral form as the dense bodies merge into the Lightbody. It can be activated by various techniques involving meditation, breathing, and focus, or by spinning techniques such as Sufi whirling (used by Islamic mystics), among other permission slips.

The merkabah is not a "requirement" for Ascension, but rather a symptom, or result, of Ascension. The merkabah activates on its own as a result of a shift in consciousness. It is an effect of increasing the vibration of one's consciousness, not a cause. "The merkabah becoming alive is a reflection of the fact that one has developed a pattern of consciousness which enables their perspective (focal point) to be unrestricted by the limits of vibrational density of the physical dimension" (3rd density). It can be thought of as an elevator from 3rd to higher densities, the floors of which are different types of experiential realities (or "harmonic levels").

Sacred Geometry

The tetrahedron, two of which form the Merkabah, is the simplest/first of the Platonic solids, having 4 faces, the minimum number of faces that a 3rd-dimensional object can have. In numerology, the number 4 represents the idea of transformation (after oneness, duality/polarity, and trinity). A tetrahedron is the only regular polyhedron that is its own dual. As Peter Roberts explains, "[i]f we look at the surfaces between two edges of superimposed duals, they are a least energy surface. Soap bubbles fit these surfaces, and soap bubbles are an accurate representation of least energy (tension vs. strength) surfaces" (see the full article for illustrations).

Star duotetrahedron in 3rd density

Bashar describes how to create a spacetime antenna that would function as a free energy device (or perpetual motion machine), which has the same form as a merkabah (only more dense, made of fermions rather than bosonic photons):

Bashar - Free Energy Space-Time Antenna

Bashar shares about space-time energy and how we can create a free energy space-time antenna. To learn more about the project, come join the online discussion: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/space-time-antenna/. This clip comes from "Bashar's Lab" recorded June 15, 2008.

Bashar hints that one can use it not only to possibly produce a free energy device, which several people have been working on (and Bashar has elaborated further on), but also to shift to a parallel reality that is more representative of the idea of Ascension (or, expressed in a linear way, to tap into the vibrational frequency of the Ascension timelines), by saying this at the end:

Explore with it if you wish, it's up to you. Or, use this idea, by imagining it simply in your imagination, and play with what that shape does when you get it in your mind's eye, in terms of opening you up to other levels of communication as well, because you can use it that way too. You don't have to physicalize it to get an effect within your own consciousness; but you can physicalize it to get an effect in physical reality. So play with it however you wish. If you also do it in your mind, and you see that shape in your mind, if you can also learn to view it 3-dimensionally and start turning it, rotating it in your mind, and see it in different angles, that will absolutely heighten and increase your ability to tap into other dimensional frequencies as well.

Bashar, 2008

Ascensional permission slips

All tools, all techniques, all rituals, all objects, are nothing but permission slips. They're not doing anything for you [by themselves]. They're just a vibratory resonance that symbolically depicts, symbolically reflects, the state of the belief system within you at present, that, by that reflection will allow you to give yourself permission to be more of who you are.

Bashar

The ascended state of consciousness already exists — it's a "matter" of tuning one's frequency to the reality that one wishes to experience, using whatever permission slips will make it seem causally OK to give oneself permission to shift to a parallel reality that is representative of the ascended state of being. Three notable such permission slips are:

Emotional clearing

A WikiHow guide explains the idea of emotional clearing this way:

Emotional Clearing is the practice of bringing awareness to our mental and emotional compulsions and reactions in order to "heal" them or integrate them. Sometimes referred to as Shadow Work and Sub Personality Integration and Traumatic Incident Reduction and Deconstructive Contemplation and Polarity Neutralization. The end state of doing this work is Wholeness which is actually a step beyond enlightenment.

Many humans incarnating into the Earth plane experience extreme degrees of limitation and darkness (which is the point of the experience, from the soul's perspective in the non-physical 6th density), and thus may accumulate unintegrated (hidden, "sealed away" in the subconscious) emotional blockages produced by traumatic events that one was unprepared to deal with at the time they happened. Many researchers suggest that, in order to appropriately anchor the ascensional higher frequency, one must dissolve/integrate the mini-traumas one may be (unknowingly/unconsciously) harboring, in addition to redefining one's experiences in positive/neutral terms:

It Is Impossible To Raise Your Vibration Without Emotional Clearing

[Published on Feb 11, 2015] For those that this message resonates with, Emotional clearing is vital to your health and spiritual well-being. Emotional clearing is where you release all negativity, blame, resentment, shame and anger in a process where you take total responsibility for everything in your life both good and bad. And yes it hurts. But it's impossible to raise your vibration without emotional clearing first. That's where you may be stuck and that's who this message is for. Those who feel kind of stuck.

Raising your vibration simply means feeling good or calm no matter what's going on around you. It is possible to feel good about everything in your life at anytime. You may be caught off guard by something but as long as you are still living in duality you must feel good to get to your soul or your life purpose.

If you have a negative coworker, your raised vibration may actually repel them. Getting away from negative situations and negative people is sometimes difficult but you can tell if you are emotionally blocked if you're surrounded by angry people. If there are angry people in your life that's a sign you have some unresolved anger lowering your vibration so clear it out.

Your outward reality is a reflection of what's going on with you inwardly like a little psychic diorama playset. So just look around and see what you need to work on as you get closer to your soul. If everyone is happy around you congratulations, you're at a high vibration. If everyone around you is angry you're at a low vibration OR being tempted to lower your vibration to be a match to your surroundings. But that is more like surfing the vibrations and a topic for another video.

Much love to you.

I wrote this Shaman's Guide To Emotional Clearing that you can read here: https://medium.com/p/a-shamans-guide-to-emotional-clearing-73330d866dfc

The idea is that the degree to which one has experienced traumatic events is the degree to which one must emotionally integrate those experiences.

Entheogens

While meditative self-work (shadow work, integration) is central to ascension (at least for many/most people), there are some general permission slips that one can use to accelerate the process or help illuminate the path. The most obvious of such permission slips are psychoactive molecules that temporarily increase the vibrational frequency of one's state of consciousness, known as entheogens. The ones that resonate the most with human biology are cannabis (which can be used either medicinally/recreationally, or entheogenically when taken in high doses) and the tryptamine psychedelics, such as psilocybin/psilocin (magic mushrooms), and especially the endogenous frequency neuromodulator, DMT. The comedown of a high-dose DMT trip could perhaps be thought of as a preview of an ascended state of consciousness.

Monoatomic m-state elements

Supposedly, gold and other metals in a monoatomic or "m-state" of matter are light conductors that energize the light body. Bashar says that they can increase the amplitude of one's electromagnetheric frequency. This idea is beyond the idea of nootropics (neuromodulation and neurotransmission hacking), and closer to the idea of NZT-48, or a long-lasting nano dose of DMT.

Bashar - Monoatomic gold (alchemical permission slip)

Bashar explains monoatomic gold (plus concise definition of permission slips). [From Bashar's transmission: Download (2008-10-11; Pt.10)]

Electromagnetic vs. electromagnetheric energy

There is a difference in this, in that electromagnetism is simply one manifestation of how etheric energy manifests into your physiological domain. The electromagnetheric version of that expression is a little bit closer to the original source of the etheric energy — not so much translated into physical reality, but still, shall we say, maintaining a bridge, to the original etheric template, and thus a little bit more malleable, a little bit more capable of functioning as a template, to rearrange the things going on in your physiological reality, since physical reality takes its cue from the template that is initiated by your consciousness in etheric reality first.

So, the substance you are referring to [David Hudson's White Powder Gold] has a little bit more of the idea of the connection to electromagnetheric patterns of energy, which allow a little bit more... malleability, manipulatability, in your physiological reality for the desired effects you wish to achieve.

For any transition, your body will need to recognize its ground state, in between the ingestion of any one substance that causes matter alteration, and any other substance that would assist you with massive alteration in that sense. Always allow the rest state. The number 7, in terms of your days, being an appropriate length of time to allow your body to recalibrate its original ground state, before taking on another reflection of transmutation.
[...]
You will also find in your researches that one of the strongest catalytic transitional elements to aid and assist in all of these processes will be the substance that you call chromium.
[...]
You must understand that the idea is that when you are working on the level of the monoatomics, you are dealing directly with the first level of manifestation of consciousness into physical materiality. And so as your frequency of attitude, so the manifestation.
[...]
You may find that you will have, shall we say, better results for what you are asking for, if more than one of you will combine their thoughts in that direction, and so set up what you might colloquially call a consensus reality. Then, the material will respond better to the geometric magnification of the thought in that direction, and take its cue from the coherency of a multitude of like mind. It is not that one mind cannot do it, but one mind on your planet is usually not used to knowing that it can do it. Even though one mind does it all the time, you're not taught to know that that's what you're doing when you create your reality anyway. If you can get to the point where you realize you're doing that anyway all the time, then one mind is sufficient. Until such time, you might want to invite a few friends to help you.

The September 2015 ascension waves

Bentinho Massaro explains exactly what happened:

Global Energy Update - Humanity's Ascension - Bentinho Massaro LIVE

[Streamed live on Sep 23, 2015]

... or is it?

Is ascension really about shifting from 3rd density awareness to(wards) 4th density awareness, or is it about integrating polarity and transcending duality altogether — an ascension to 6th/7th density awareness?

The latter is what researchers Cameron Day and George Kavassilas propose — that moving through the densities of experience is not so much what ascension is but rather a "labyrinth of demiurgic illusion":

The corrupt demiurge is an entropic system of artificially-induced separation consciousness that is slowly dying, and it depends on harvesting the energy from the souls incarnated within its system in order to preserve its existence. In order to harvest the largest amount of soul energy possible, it created the dark-light duality paradigm to ensure that every being incarnated on a world that is under its spell would serve as a “soul battery“ to help keep the demiurge energized. The “good“ souls would seek out the (false) light team, and the “bad“ souls would seek out the dark team, but unknown to most of those souls, they are all serving the same system.

In order to keep the duality game interesting for its participants, the demiurge set up densities of existence that “initiates“ on the dark and light paths could ascend through. This gives the beings moving through these densities a feeling of accomplishment, when in fact they are navigating through a labyrinth of demiurgic illusion. The players at the higher levels of the hierarchies know that they are in a self-serving system, but they are fine with the deal, because they get to wield power and receive the energy of worship from beings further down the ladder.

Cameron Day [source]

Bashar, without going into any ideas of negativity or deliberate suppression of consciousness expression, explains ascension as a simple process, not as something specifically truly special and unique (even if from our perspective in the 3rd density it's beyond science-fiction):

Ascension is simply the raising of your frequency, that's all. And experiencing the reality that is commensurate with that. And by acting on your highest excitement to the best of your ability with no insistence on a particular outcome, you will allow yourself to expand and "continue to ascend". Does that make sense? It's that simple.

The idea of course is that many people in your mass consensus are now deciding to do that all at once. Therefore it looks like a mass movement, that there are now discussions of consciousness, explorations of spirit... Now that that is common in your language on your planet for many people, more than it was before, you are experiencing the idea of the momentum of a large segment of the collective consciousness deciding that it's the transformational time to do this. Therefore that is being called the ascension. But it's a process.
[...]
This is a process; you're already raising your vibrations by having these kinds of conversations. It's not just "oh, today I'm 3rd density, oh! 11:59, boom, I'm now 4th density!" It's a process; you've been doing this for years. You've been raising your frequency, exploring consciousness, exploring spirituality. Eventually, you will be purely 4th density, but this is a process.
[...]
You will each have your own rate, but there will be an overall bubble rate, as well, for the collective consciousness that chooses to do that.

Bashar

Those (human minds and hearts operating) outside of that overall bubble would then be the human souls who choose (or have already pre-incarnationally chosen) to continue to experience increasing levels of darkness and consciousness suppression, going into the (presumably ever-increasingly dumbified and oppressive and destructive) transhumanism timeline types and eventually becoming unable to cross/jump over to the ascension timeline types.

From the soul's perspective, of course, each path type — each modality of experience — is exactly equally as valid and as meaningful and as useful in its evolution and expansion within itself. In a sense, such a choice could even be thought of as exceedingly brave, even though all souls are brave, even when long traumatized.

Quotes

To fall in love is to create a religion that has a fallible god.

Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986)

I have noticed that all of biology, not simply shamanism within the context of human society, but all of biology, is, in a sense, a conquest of dimensionality. That, as we ascend the philogeny of organic life, what animals are, are a strategy for conquering spacetime. And complex animals do it better than simpler animals; and we do it better than any complex animal; and we 20th century people do it better than any people in any previous century, because we combine data in so many ways that they couldn't: electronically, on film, on tape, so forth and so on. So, the progress of organic life is deeper and deeper into dimensional conquest. From that point of view then, the shaman begins to look like the advance guard of a new kind of human being. A human being that is as advanced over where we are, as we are advanced over people a million years ago — because we have very elaborate strategies for coding the past. It's a dimensional conquest.

Terence McKenna (1994)

As we raise our consciousness and activate our lightbody, we realize we are our own creators made, or making ourselves, in the image and similitude of the one Creator. Indeed, since in a hologram the part contains the whole, we are the one Creator. By learning this truly transformative lesson, we return to unity consciousness while mastering physicality. In other words, we achieve god-realization as the light of soul descends into a divine or soul body healed of duality and freed from the instructional cycle of karma.

Sol Luckman

The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first.

Jim Morrison

Ascension through all levels of consciousness and awareness can only happen when you live life as you, and not how others think you should live. How could self-realization possibly be anything other than being yourself?

Bryant McGill

When one realises one is asleep, at that moment one is already half-awake.

P.D. Ouspensky

Awakening is not a thing. It is not a goal, not a concept. It is not something to be attained. It is a metamorphosis. If the caterpillar thinks about the butterfly it is to become, saying ‘And then I shall have wings and antennae,’ there will never be a butterfly. The caterpillar must accept its own disappearance in its transformation. When the marvelous butterfly takes wing, nothing of the caterpillar remains.

Alejandro Jodorowsky

Even if you have not awakened, if you realize that your perceptions and activities are all like dreams and you view them with detachment, not giving rise to grasping and rejecting discrimination, then this is virtually tantamount to awakening from the dream.

Muso Kokushi

As soon as you look at the world through an ideology you are finished. No reality fits an ideology. Life is beyond that. … That is why people are always searching for a meaning to life… Meaning is only found when you go beyond meaning. Life only makes sense when you perceive it as mystery and it makes no sense to the conceptualizing mind.

Anthony de Mello

It is only through slowly deconstructing our personalities brick by brick that we can transcend the limitations of "who we think we are" and morph into what we are meant to become.

Mateo Sol

The doorway to fulfillment is in your heart. When you use your heart intelligence to shift perception and direct the flow of your emotions, you have the ability to generate and magnetize your own fulfillment. The longing stops and is replaced by appreciation.

Howard Martin, HeartMath Institute

The present convergence of crises – in money, energy, education, health, water, soil, climate, politics, the environment, and more – is a birth crisis, expelling us from the old world into a new.

Charles Eisenstein

Ascension is merely a stage in this evolutionary process and involves reaching a place where one is ready to raise oneself to the frequency of Light, whereby the fifth dimension becomes accessible and visible.

Sandy Stevenson

The time of THE GREAT CHANGE is upon us, and is the outcome for those who embarked on a journey eons ago. All who have chosen to be here at this time are about to experience a transformation of a magnitude that few on Earth can currently comprehend, and of which multitudes in the Universe regard in the highest esteem – the transformation of our Divine Mother Earth and her Humanity into Beings of Light and Universal Creators.

George Kavassilas

I have seen this graduation of consciousness many times, over the past eons of time within this galaxy. There is nothing to prepare you for the grandness of an entire consciousness shift. A lower consciousness carries child-like attitudes, traditions and beliefs. Now it all starts to focus into common sense and spiritual logic. Never has there been a grander spiritual awakening on the planet than this. The potentials are immense and you are right on schedule. And so it is.

Kryon (channeled by Lee Carroll)

Here’s the real trick about ascension: We are already “there“ but we need to stop identifying with all of the limitations, blockages, implants, illusions and spells that have been cast upon us. When we do that, we find that Infinite Source was *right there* all along. Of course, the “dispelling“ takes a lot of work. :-)

Cameron Day [source]

[A]s your planet continues its transformation into fourth density, those that choose to experience fourth density will create that experience for themselves, and those who do not will create a parallel existence in which they will exist in that way.

Now simply, you will find that there may be many ways in which they will, and you will, vanish from each other's reality. Either they will seem to die off to you, or you will seem to die off to them. Or in time, as the acceleration proceeds, you can simply witness that those individuals will no longer be within your reality. They will simply disappear.
