In this digital age, where distractions abound and the noise of the world can drown out our inner voice, reconnecting with our spirituality is essential for finding our true purpose in life, and for a more meaningful existence. The modern world puts pressure on us to reach happiness as some ultimate goal, but very few realize that happiness is just a by-product of a meaningful existence!
Spiritual ascension is a process of personal transformation that involves a shift in consciousness from a lower to a higher vibration. This can lead to a number of changes, including a greater sense of peace, joy, and love, as well as a deeper connection to the divine.
There are many different ways to describe spiritual ascension, but one common way is to say that it is a process of "waking up" to our true nature. When we are “asleep”, we are unaware of our spiritual potential, of our soul. We are caught up in the illusion of the material world, and we see ourselves as separate from everything else, from the divine.
However, when we wake up spiritually, we begin to see the world through new eyes. We realize that we are all connected and that we are all part of something much larger than ourselves.
Understanding Spiritual Ascension
It’s important to make a difference between the Ascension of your Soul vs. the Ascension of your Body. Spiritual ascension belongs to the Spirit, to your Soul, while Body Ascension belongs to raising your Body vibration and aiming to reach the Lightbody or Rainbow Body. In this article, I talk mainly about the Spiritual Ascension.
Spiritual ascension is the process of elevating one's consciousness and expanding one's awareness to connect with higher realms of existence. It involves transcending the limitations of the physical world and tapping into the infinite wisdom and universal energy that surrounds us. While the concept of spiritual ascension may seem esoteric or mystical, it is a deeply personal and transformative journey that can bring profound meaning to our lives.
Spiritual ascension offers a pathway to rediscovering our true selves and finding purpose beyond the superficial. It allows us to tap into our inner wisdom, cultivate compassion and love, and live in alignment with our highest values.
The journey of spiritual ascension is a deeply personal and transformative process that unfolds over time. It is not a linear path, but rather a spiral of growth, with each revolution bringing us closer to our true selves.
This journey often involves shedding old beliefs and patterns that no longer serve us, healing past traumas, and embracing the unknown. It requires courage, self-reflection, and a willingness to let go of what no longer aligns with our highest good.
The Stages of Spiritual Ascension
There are many different stages of spiritual ascension, but some common ones include:
Glimpsing Spirit: This is the first stage of spiritual ascension, and it is often marked by a sense of awe or wonder. It can be triggered by a discussion, by a book, by a mystical experience, or we may simply start to feel a deeper connection to something larger than ourselves.
Questioning Beliefs: As we continue on our spiritual journey, we may start to question our old beliefs. We may realize that the way we have been thinking about the world is not entirely accurate. This can be a challenging stage, but it is also an important one.
Interest in Spirituality: As we start to question our old beliefs, we may become more interested in spirituality. We may start to read about different spiritual traditions, or we may begin to meditate or practice a particular spiritual school.
Contemplation and Self-Reflection: This is a time for introspection and self-reflection. We may spend time journaling, praying, or simply sitting quietly in nature. This is a time to get to know ourselves better and to connect with our inner wisdom.
Surrender, or give up the Spiritual Path: As we progress on our spiritual journey, we may come to a Place of Surrender. We may realize that we cannot control everything that happens to us, and that we need to learn to accept the present moment whether good or bad. This can be a liberating experience, as it frees us from the need to constantly strive for something that is out of our control. This means letting go of our attachment to our ego and our old beliefs. It means accepting that we are not in control of everything that happens to us. When we can surrender, we open ourselves up to a new level of peace and freedom.
On the other hand, from my experience and also watching other spirituals go through this, this is also an inflection point, a bifurcation. This happens due to the ever-rising challenges that start to manifest in our daily life when taking this path, and many give up and return to the daily grind to avoid challenges. Unfortunately, without challenges there is no positive spiritual change possible, hence no consciousness rising.
Dedication to a Spiritual Path: This is the stage where we commit ourselves to a spiritual path. We may choose to follow a particular spiritual tradition, or we may create our own unique path. This is a time to focus and advance our spiritual practice and deepen our connection to the divine.
Connecting to the Divine: This is the final stage of spiritual ascension, and it is marked by a deep sense of connection to the divine. We may feel a sense of Oneness with all of Creation, or we may simply feel a profound sense of peace and love. This is the culmination of our spiritual journey, and it is a state of being that we can continue to cultivate throughout our lives toward reaching spiritual enlightenment.
How to Spiritually Ascend
There is no one right way to spiritually ascend because souls are so different from many points of view: how young or old they are, their past lives, their list of major life experiences they have in plan, their tendencies, etc. However, there are some major practices that can help you on your journey. These include:
Meditation: Meditation is a powerful tool for calming the mind and opening the heart. It can help you to connect with your inner wisdom, to experience a deeper sense of peace, and further with your soul, and even God.
A spiritual school: A proper spiritual school is another great way to connect with your body and spirit. It can help you to release stress, improve your mental and even physical flexibility, know yourself, increase your energy levels, and connect with your higher self.
Prayer: Prayer is a way to connect with the divine. It can help you to express your gratitude, to ask for guidance, and to find comfort in times of difficulty.
Service to others: Service to others is a powerful way to connect with your heart and make a difference in the world. It can help you to feel a sense of purpose and to connect with your higher self. When we serve others, we are not only helping them, but we are also helping ourselves. Service helps us to connect with our higher selves and to experience a deeper sense of purpose.
Studying spiritual texts: Reading high-vibration spiritual texts can help you to learn about different spiritual traditions and to gain insights into your own spiritual journey.
Practice Gratitude, Appreciation, Acceptance, and Love. Make a habit of daily expressing Gratitude, Appreciation, Acceptance, and Love toward souls around you, friends, colleagues, people you know, humanity, Earth, and Sun, toward every cell of your body, etc. This simple practice goes a long way into reconnecting you quickly and efficiently with Creation’s energies around you!
Take care of your body. Our soul uses our body to experience life around us, so no spiritual progress occurs without the participation of our body! If we ignore it and focus exclusively on soul awareness as many spirituals do, it will limit a lot our general progress. To raise your body vibration follow a good diet, plan periods of self-care, do some exercise, go outdoors in nature, and so on. It’s an illusion to think we can practice spirituality efficiently while being sick. It can help us heal in a certain degree, it’s true, but as awareness in the long term if we are sick there are very low chances to progress.
Ascending to the Divine
Navigating challenges on the path of spiritual ascension
While the journey of spiritual ascension can be deeply rewarding, it is not without its challenges. As we delve into the depths of our being, we may encounter unresolved emotions, limiting beliefs, and resistance to change. It is important to approach these challenges with understanding, compassion, and self-acceptance.
Seeking support from trusted spiritual mentors, guides, coaches, or spiritual communities can provide guidance and encouragement when facing these obstacles. Remember, spiritual growth often happens outside of our comfort zones, and embracing discomfort is an integral part of the ascension process!
Another crucial point is there is no spiritual progress without a higher-vibration body! Limiting beliefs like fears, worries, regrets, etc are to be found in our body energies and not in our soul. Whoever ignores the body and works only on raising his soul awareness will be greatly disappointed in time…
Finding support and guidance on the path of spiritual ascension
The main difference between following a religion or a spiritual school is that in the former you are part of a larger closely knitted community of believers so you never feel alone, while in the later walking a spiritual path is rather a solitaire endeavor.
Embarking on the path of spiritual ascension can be a solitary experience, but it is important to remember that we are not alone. There are numerous spiritual schools, resources, and communities available to support us on our journey. Seek out books, podcasts, workshops, and online communities that resonate with your spiritual path.
Connect with like-minded individuals like spiritual mentors, guides, teachers, and masters who can provide support, inspiration, and a sense of belonging. Remember that everyone's journey is unique, and it is important to find the practices and communities that resonate with your own truth.
Spiritual ascension is a journey, not a destination. Even reaching Enlightenment is just a milestone on your journey, not an end. It takes time and effort to reach our full potential. We need to be patient with ourselves and with our process. If we get discouraged, we can always take a step back and re-evaluate our journey.
Spiritual ascension is a journey that is different for everyone. However, it is a journey that is well worth taking. As you ascend, you will discover a deeper sense of peace, joy, and love. You will also connect with your true nature and with the divine.
So, if you are feeling called to a spiritual path, I encourage you to take the first step. You won't regret it.
