57 Ascension Symptoms


    Last month, I explained how the process of preparing our bodies to house higher vibrations are causing our bodies to change. That’s where the "symptoms" come in.

    I have accumulated these 57 symptoms over the past five years, but the list continues to grow as we experience new symptoms. As always, I encourage people to get checked out if they are especially concerned about something.

    Some of the questions you can first ask yourself are "Do I have a history of this particular symptom? Is anyone else experiencing this right now? Does the symptom stay, or does it come and go? Am I living a healthy lifestyle?" Depending on how you answer, you may feel comforted in knowing that if you have no history of illness, others are feeling what you’re feeling, the symptoms come and go, and you’re healthy, that this is all part of the current process of physical transformation.

    Why the symptoms? Imagine that you’re totally overhauling your house. The walls need to come down, the roof needs to come off, the carpet needs to get ripped up. Don’t you think you’d feel some of that disruption in your life? Of course you would. It’s the same thing with your body. In order to prepare your body for higher energy frequencies, we need to get "overhauled." All of our "systems" are affected (circulatory, digestive, nervous, etc.), and it’s all new, so unfortunately we don’t have anything to compare it to. But seeing some of the symptoms in print, and knowing that you’re not alone, can go a great way toward you feeling more empowered to work with this amazing process.

    1. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what the red “sores” were under my armpits until I was led to this list! I had changed soaps, stopped using deodorants, including my so-called safe crystal one…had applied coconut oil, castor oil, and homeopathic remedies. Sigh of relief if this really IS the answer. Was also starting to go nuts wondering what foods I was suddenly allergic to. Maybe now I can stop worrying? 🙂

    2. This has just changed my life! Since I was a child I have felt literally EVERY symptom listed above, I have always known that I was different from the other kids. I never fit in with anybody my own age, I was bullied for being sensitive, and strived but failed to fit in with anyone. Since I have began meditating daily, eating healthy, doterra oils, and starting each day like I have never lived… Some intensely amazing things have happened. I am literally gaining self love and soul with each passing day. Thank you, for you have changed a life.

    3. I can see Rainbows in the sky and I now see Auras. I can read and understand others without even trying. I have become ultra sensitive. Soreness in my neck and feelings of extreme warmth at times. It is hard to focus on the physical world when I can see so many new sights. It is impossible to get mad or frestrated. I feel so mellow, like a different person all together. I tend to spend more time alone and dont feel comfortable engaging in very much human interaction at work. I almost feel out of place. I can’t be around negative people, it is too intense. I didnt use to be this way as an adult. I feel like I am a child of purity and love. I have new psycic abilities and can communicate with the angelic relm. I have found my life’s mission. My heart beats very strongly at times. I feel alone sometimes, because there are not very many people who understand me or the experiences that I am experiencing.

    4. Wow… I have experienced so many things on this list. And thank goodness most are gone but now I am going through waves of “Buzzing”… I feel it through my whole body and even in the ground below my feet when I talk or touch someone when Spirit is being discussed and channeled. I have Always had ringing in my ears but in my case knew that it is Angels Speaking…know I ask to be lifted up to their vibration so I can hear and understand them clearly…. Omg! As I am writing this I have just realized what the “Buzzing” I’m experiencing is!…My Vibration is lifting…Duh…smiling.

    5. Hi Susan, Thank you for the extensive list of symptoms. While I am also menopausal, I am really beginning to believe that although hormones may be exascerbating the symptoms, that they are actually intended for the same reason–to wake us up. I want to ask a particular symptom that I have, in the hopes that you have heard others with it.

      I am currently 54, and my period stopped entirely about 2 years ago.Since that time, I’ve had intense anxiety and depression. I also went off 3 antidepressants, with the doctor’s directions, over a period of 1 year. I’ve noticed that just before a hot flush comes, I feel such a weird sense of anxiety that I can’t possibly find words to describe it. I actually make myself stay with it in the hopes of describing it–and I am a writer–but I just can’t find any words to do so. The only thing I can say about it is that I feel as if I’m being pushed from behind. I once explained it as being pushed by wind in a fierce windstorm. I feel very vulnerable and raw when it’s happening–physically and emotionally. I read another woman describe a similar experience as “the worst feeling she’s ever had.”

      If you can offer any help, I’d really appreciate it. I study Jungian psychology, Yoga kundalini and Self-realization, and I’ve been on the journey of Self-discovery for about 35 years. Thank you for this site. I’ll come back to it often.

    6. I’ve been through most of them right now I’m sensitive to everything I eat and my body rejects some meats and the insomnia par,the unexplained anger is what I just got passed about 2 weeks ago but lately my appetite has been high n low randomly

    7. Oh my goodness, Before I realized who I am just a few days ago I’ve been dealing with all these horrible symptoms. Just about every one just mentioned. It was really frustrating when all my tests came back negative. I really wanted something to be wrong so I could start fixing it. Nothing, my health is phenomenal. My family really thinks there’s something terribly wrong with me. With my constant unusual “sicknesses” eradic behavior and mental illness issues. I haven’t felt normal or happy or healthy for years. Now for the past year I wake up and my body is completely stiff. My hands are swollen, feet, and face. I have this terrible lower back pain and there’s nothing wrong medically. My shoulders popping and sore. For no reason at all all these weird videos started popping up in my YouTube feed about star seeds. Of course I ignored those seriously silly videos, for almost a year. Suddenly my life started falling apart, a veil was lifted and I found out the truth about how this world truly operates. Everything I thought to be true was suddenly a terrible lie. I could write a book I have so much to say. I’ve always been the weird one of my family and my friends. Everything about me has always been different. Well my life took a dramatic turn when I started questioning everything especially my Christianity. I’ve never been able to read my Bible, my mind rejected it literally. It never resonated with me, neither did going to church. The number one thing that spoke to me ONLY was the LOVE of Jesus. Not any of the rules or teachings. Thou shall love thy neighbor but homosexuals are an abomination and to stay away from them????? No, That just never worked for me. Because I loved everyone, with my heart and soul I was a beaming light of love and that’s the only way I could describe myself. I’ve always felt there’s something way more then this simple minded way of living. Something way more out there then this boring earth. For the first time my entire life makes sense! Why I’m so different and why I’m going through something that nobody else is. It’s still very surreal and at moments my old reality tries to creep in and tell me “No, your crazy and your not some star seed sent to save the planet” I notice whenever I eat anything besides sources nourishment My vibrations start to lower and brings my mind back down to this fake reality. I felt the calling for a long time to start a vegan lifestyle but I wasn’t ready and it was very hard to be vegan around my family. I took the plunge for the last month, I couldn’t ignore my higher self anymore. I’ve been eating plants, and my life has turned into something extrodinary. It wasn’t until this month I was interested in watching those star seed videos. The other day I felt this urge to stare at myself in the mirror, so I did. I just got lost in my own gaze until My body started lighting up in the mirror. I thought well this is cool, then this light mint green triangle started appearing over my head, then it faded down and surrounded my body. So I started googling green triangle over my head. I found nothing, then I searched light green auras. So, here I am once again reading a page from a stranger telling me everything about myself. All I can say is mind blown, I was listening to strangers tell me all about myself and why I’ve felt the way I’ve felt my entire life from the videos. All this time I thought I had some serious mental health issues. Why I can’t handle being around negative people, why my energy is constantly being drained. Anyway, I keep seeing this vivid green triangle in my minds eye sight. If anyone knows what this is please comment

    8. I am currently wearing a face mask wondering why I have always been sickly. Currenly shedding a dominant identity that no longer serves me, and I have a lung infection. New air, less anxious breathes, and the old me not wanting to leave is causing energy block of left side rib by lung under my heart. I was born with a weak left side and left handed. I think this is also something pertinent as well. Lazy left eyes are special spirits. Also another theory to add.

      I am moving cross country to fulfill a major part of my purpose, all on faith. So many synchronicity stories I could share that led me here. Now others are witness to the synchronicities as well. Rather cool. I was shown ( by my guides) that it is all about energy-efficiency. I noticed when I talk less and at a lower register, see people less, connect to birds, frogs, bees, wasps, and plants synchronizes me with my environment better, providing an extra layer of protection and psychic ability of what’s coming for you. When I focus the energy wasted in Matrix to more sensing and nonverbal spirit communication, I am my healthiest. I know many of us like this require certain environments and lifestyles. We lose so much more energy by forcing a fit in society. What I have experienced is if I’m sick, it has only been the following: ENT issues – ranging from TMJ (16
      – period of high vivid dreaming and synchronicity), Mono and strep at the same time (traveling to frequently around others –
      empath issues, no kissing involved.) Breathing problems, high dust allergy, allergt to eggs and shrimp. I also believe cold gusty air holds a high level of unbalanced spiritual energy, so we need to be aware and very careful of “who” we inhale in those times. We must expel more than others due to our overused senses. Daily Ayuervedic methods help spirits like us. It’s fitting as the culture is how we need to live. Food, Daily Routines, Massages to expel our internal lymphatic build up, our sinuses, gut heath, and joints. It is good to protect us as we grow. I always have intense spiritual experiences/insight/dream memory/future ideas from my guides and my higher self in order to evolve/clarity on past experiences when I’m sick as well. I know this is the purpose. We are able to heal ourselves, so going through pain is a part of growth. So, the growth of our consciousness should be aligned with our physical manifestations. If not, they highlight our chakra areas of improvement. Find the chakra near the pail and/or illness. We must do nerve acupressure work as well ro release these energy blocks and heal. There’s so much more. Who would like to start a support group for us to share our experiences? Secret Invite only FB page? This can be very lonely physically, and I Know other physical beings with these spiritual purposeful lives endure the same would like to trust someone else with this who share some of the same experiences. Sidenote: Communication changes too. My words and logic have as well. So much ro talk about. Let’s start comparing notes and finding patterns. Ase’. Thank you all for sharing, and surviving. Let’s stay connected. <3

    9. I’ve been having every one of these! Not just some, ALL and a bunch not even mentioned. It’s 2017, I’ve been on and off with these since 2009 and even most since I was a child. It was only recently, I found out who I am and what was needed to be done. So I released myself. Crazy how, since I was a teen.. I’ve thought one day, I’m going to be in a mental hospital. My life has completely changed since I stopped (unknowingly though) fighting what was really going on within myself. Its happening very fast for me! I just recently a week ago found out all this!

    10. This is how it all began… My husband and I was talking about angels (in deep discussion to) and for moments feelings came to me as if I knew everything about angels, but didn’t have the knowledge stored and at times even said things I didn’t know I knew. Well the next morning, while laying in bed. It felt like someone got me as hard as they could in the middle of my back between my shoulders so hard that it literally took my breath and as I jumped up trying to catch a breath, looking to see if there was someone there but there wasn’t. Did this happen with anyone else? I can’t find anywhere if it has happened to others? But after that moment my whole life completely changed.

    11. Interesting. Do these changes show up in routine blood/urine tests I wonder? I have to have them regularly and currently have something unusual in my kidney results.

    12. I’ve been experiencing the left side breast pain and armpit pain and I’m so happy that I’m not the only one. I’ve been so scared because I’m only 22 years old going through this and I was scared that it could be something else. Thank you ??

    13. Anyone have any intuitive hits or guidance on how to manage pain now that all pain meds (both scrip and otc) no longer work and make me feel sick?? Tried homeopathic, heat, epsom baths, meditation, visualization, weed… nothing even dents the severe pain of menstruation or post surgical healing (of which I have both at the moment).
