The Mystery of Ascension

I’ve been reading The Ascension Mysteries by David Wilcock for a few months now.

I think it’s actually the biggest book I’ve ever read and in all honesty, I used to find big books intimidating! However this one has totally changed my opinion on that.

In the book David talk about the Spiritual War we are currently part of. Not everyone is aware of this war and most people certainly have no idea of the extent of it, but it exists.

Now, before we carry on I just want to say that I’m not throwing a belief system down anyone’s throat here. Much of what I am talking about is a big part of my personal set of beliefs which have developed and evolved over a long period of time. You are not expected to agree with everything I say, and if you don’t agree with anything in this article that’s completely fine and doesn’t mean either of us are wrong, we just have different opinions.

Spiritual Ascension is the sort of subject matter that can completely screw with your mind in the beginning. I know it did with me. However, I remained intrigued and have immersed myself in ascension material and channelled information from multiple sources for around 10-12 months now. Because of this, I find the topic’s of extra-terrestrial support, global ascension and ancient civilisations quite normal and often forget how far-out this stuff can sound, especially if you’re hearing it for the first time.

What is Ascension? 

The term ‘ascension’ is one I am most comfortable with as it tends to be the most used in the literature and teachings I am surrounded by right now. However you might refer to it as enlightenment, awakening or transcendence, it all basically means the same thing.  

You may have noticed that there is a global increase in the search for knowledge. Spirituality in all forms is becoming more and more popular and some of the more ancient, esoteric and almost forgotten beliefs systems are resurfacing. These ancient civilisations were once preparing for the ascension of the planet…….but then we appear to have modernised ourselves into non-believers…..but that is all changing.  

The ascension is our journey from 3D to 4D and eventually 5D – D stands for Density.

Now, stay with me here and I will go into it in a bit more detail. First I want to mention that Physicists have theoretically understood that there are higher dimensions and this all goes back to Einstein’s theory of relativity, so this isn’t just a load of made up rubbish, although don’t worry if it takes a few attempts to get your head around it.

The Third Dimension 

Right now we live in a 3D world represented by the physical structures all around us and the physical bodies we inhabit. Our awareness of the 3D world makes this concept easy and acceptable. 

Living in the world from a 3D perspective can cause fear, stress, worry, anxiety and other negative emotions which keep us trapped from raising our consciousness to the next level.

As you begin your spiritual journey you will notice how these negative emotions can be dealt with in less reactive ways. This doesn’t mean bad stuff doesn’t happen, but it does mean that we’re learning from the experience and raising our vibration with each lesson.

The Fourth Dimension 

With work, we then move to the fourth dimension. 

“A comprehension of the fourth dimension or 4D, usually breaks through when we have a life challenge or crisis and receive our wake-up call”

Elizabeth Peru

I remember when mine happened! Do you?

“Living from a 4D perspective, means that you still physically live in 3D and are aware of and working with all that it entails, but you are also focused on love, sharing, service, compassion, the power of the soul and mind and the ability to attract and create what it is you desire. Your psychic skills are vastly stronger with a 4D level of consciousness. You can sense what will happen before it does and intuition also amps up. Living in a 3D world, with 4D consciousness is the norm for most people who are now on a conscious spiritual – holistic path”

Elizabeth Peru

For me, this has been such a beautiful journey. Sometimes it’s been a little confusing and even frustrating but every now and again something else clicks into place. I notice more of the signs and messages around me and the realisation that I am supported gives me faith and hope.

The Fifth Dimension

So what about 5D, where does that take us?

This is the one that could be hard to get your head around, so don’t give up on me here.

The fifth dimension is an elevated level of awareness and much has been channelled and written about humanities ascension into this new existence.

We are currently in the process of shifting to a whole new level of reality and there are a lot of varying dates on when this will take place although the near future seems to be a certainty.

Entering the fifth dimension is all about your own personal frequency. So when we talk about raising your vibration, this is exactly what it means. To be ready for the ascension we must be in a higher vibrational state to match the frequency of the fifth dimension. Are you still with me?

“When we’ve lifted our consciousness to the 5D level, we truly have a deep compassion for all living beings. At this level most people are vegetarian, if not vegan. When your awareness is operating in 5D, a lot of the 3D world becomes almost ‘invisible’ to you. You may literally not see other people, who are operating on a purely 3D level. You’ll also find that what used to bother you about the 3D world becomes less of your focus, as instead, you are firmly focused on leading your best life so that you can uplift the planet and all those you come into contact with. It’s like you’re on a ‘mission’ when you operate from 5D. You’re dedicated, self-responsible and ready to serve the whole”

The Fifth Dimension and Me

I’ve felt this transition coming on for a while now. I’ve been focusing on understanding more about what I eat and ingest on a daily basis and as a results I see just how much junk additive are in our foods and beverages. And at this point I should probably apologise to my friends and family who have heard me rant about what’s in ham quite often! #sorry

I seem to have declared a bit of a war on supermarkets and the chemicals and additives in foods lately too! And I’m taking steps to go plastic free in the home beginning with my toiletries and cosmetics. However these things are just the tip of the iceberg…….and talking about iceberg’s….actually I will leave the global warming rant for another time. 

I also feel like I’ve been here before but got lost along the way. Back in the day, I went to University and studied Zoology as all I wanted to do was protect animals, learn about diversity and find ways to prevent future extinctions of any species. Unfortunately, life did get in the way for me, and as I learned (or repeatedly didn’t learn) some harsh lessons, I  became firmly planted in the 3D world for almost two decades!  

Now my original passion to protect life in any form has resurfaced and I feel I have a lot of work to do to make up for lost time. But it’s never too late, just remember that! 

I also feel because I was on this path before I am now being skyrocketed forward. The transitions can be exhausting and I do have to stop to take a breath from time to time. My increased creativity has been a massive part of this for me as you will see with the art I share on social media. I find creating art a meditative process and it also unlocks my imagination which had been closed for way too long. I also understand that creativity and art is essential for my spiritual journey and as such I embrace it.

The Current State of Our Planet

I touched on this before, but people are getting more spiritual. Have you noticed? I just need to look down my social media news feed for evidence of this.

Today we openly and readily talk about the power of crystals and tarot cards, the magick of the Universe and gifts such as mediumship and clairvoyance. Witches have their own Instagram accounts. Lightworkers are spreading the word and offering healing and support to those of us who are looking for alternative ways to live our lives. Yoga, meditation and art therapy are being taught in (some) schools. People everywhere are ‘waking up’ and asking for answers to the BIG questions;

  • Why are we here?
  • Where did we come from?
  • What is our soul purpose?

We have also starting to notice what we’ve done to the planet and how much damage we have caused. And thankfully many people are starting to take responsibility for this.

Although varied spirituality is more open and accessible now, unfortunately there are still haters and people who are against this *new age way of thinking.

*although often referred to as ‘new age’, this level of spirituality has been part of our world before and we are actually remembering the old ways and bringing them into the modern world rather than creating new ones.

Why are People Against Spiritual Growth?

In some cases it’s down to conditioning generated by societal behaviours and the circles of influence around individuals. Basically we follow the same pattern as the generation before us and we see examples of this on the new everyday.

Social Media, television and the media in general also have a part to play in this, sharing propaganda style information which never provides the full story needed to form our own opinions, and instead we are told what to think, believe and feel on so many levels.

A Spiritually Open Person is a Threat

Embracing our spirituality, however that looks as everyone’s path will be different, gives us power. Spirituality and ‘waking up’ activates gifts, powers, questions, feelings, and answers which would have otherwise remained dormant or hidden.

  • This is ancestral knowledge handed down through our genetic code.
  • This is the ‘knowing’ of being part of something bigger.
  • This is the belief that we have a purpose, that we are here for a reason and that we can be of service to ourselves, others and the planet.

As we become strong, powerful and curious we are no longer malleable to the corporations and global leaders who remain wealthy due to our spiritual poverty.

Keeping us asleep, keeps the wrong people in power for all the wrong reasons.

Spiritual War

We are currently part of a spiritual war and we must be spiritual soldiers who show up and fight every day.

  • We must fight for a higher vibrational energy
  • We must fight against the hidden chemicals in our food and water
  • We must fight the challenges of eating healthy no matter your income or social status
  • We must fight the pharmaceutical companies who feed us more chemicals to fight the diseases caused by the pollution and toxic build up they themselves have caused
  • We must fight for cleaner ways to live so that our planet and everything that lives here isn’t being slowly chocked to death

We must fight!

Desensitised to the Truth

The power of the media has done a real number on us. How many times have you uttered the phrase “it’s just how things are these days“?

  • Perhaps you have used it when you heard that someone you know was burgled, attacked or worse.
  • Maybe you said it to yourself when your life felt out of control and you felt as though you had no where to turn.

When did you last accept that a crappy deal was “just how things are these days”?

Should we accept that? I say “Hell No!”

Seeing so much negativity on the news, TV and radio means that our level of acceptance to what is happening in the world is quite high. It’s not unusual to see terrorism, violent crime, poverty and famine so that is how we see a ‘normal’ world. We see it as a broken world and accept that it is just how things are these days.

It’s certainly one to think about, don’t you agree?

Spiritual Life isn’t Easy

We can be forgiven for assuming that embracing a spiritual ‘love and light lifestyle‘ will make life easier, that abundance will flow in our direction without much thought and that we will no longer suffer the hardships of the past.

This isn’t the case. In fact, it’s possible that things might get worse for a while before they get better. But there’s a reason for this.

I personally know many spiritual warriors with the most beautiful hearts an souls who have gone through excruciatingly painful grief, loss, illness, abuse and trauma.

Why did this happen if they’re such good people?

Doesn’t the Law of Attraction specifically say that like attracts like?

There are powers at play, much bigger than all of us, that are trying to keep us to a low vibration existence. If we are delivered challenges big enough our vibration lowers as a result. We experience symptoms such as depression, anxiety, mood swings, isolation, social discomfort, overwhelm, over spending, addictive tendencies including gambling, alcohol and drugs just to name a few.

Remaining at a low vibration will slow down spiritual growth and the ascension journey. So you must be prepared to fight every day.

You must be willing to take action each day to raise your vibration even when all feels lost, hopeless or worthless.

I’m certainly not saying this is going to be easy, but it’s the fight we have signed up for. Are you in?

Quote from The Ascension Mysteries by David Wilcock

I really think the below quote found on P358 of The Ascension Mysteries by David Wilcock sums up what I’ve been talking about quite well.

“If you are aware of the game and do your very best to be a humble, honest, virtuous and loving person you will not ‘authorise’ the most damaging events. However very few people have the spiritual development to avoid unexpected disruptions………Nonetheless, if you take on the honour and duty of helping others at this critical time, that service may well be the ‘tipping point’ that authorises you ascension. You may go through a few bumps in the road, but before long you could be hovering right over them”

So there you have it. My thoughts, feelings and beliefs on Ascension pretty much rolled out before you.

I would love to know your thoughts in the comments below.

How to Paint a Halloween Pumpkin

Every Halloween I love to get involved in the creative stuff such as pumpkin carving, decorating my home and garden in spooky stuff and drawing and painting Halloween themed art. This year, I don’t have time for pumpkin carving as I’m away on the lead up to Halloween so I’ve thought of the next best…

Hi, I’m Sarah Cornforth and I'm a Creatrix of Magick.  I have never really considered myself creative or artistic as I'm too much of a perfectionist for that and I still find it hard to accept the word ‘artist’ as a title for myself. Initially creating art was a way of coping with the curveballs of life. When I draw, or paint or craft I feel calmer, my mind slows down to a pace I can cope with and life becomes easier. I also love working closely with the phases of the moon and the cycles of nature in everything I do as the benefits are huge. At the end of 2017 a dear friend nudged me in the direction of creating art to sell, and if it had been anyone else who encouraged me I would have thought they were mad. But this particular friend has a special gift. She can see the life purpose of others. So I listened and I took every piece of advice she had to give me.....and here I am, creating art, working with the Moon, teaching people how to heal through Mandala art, feeling happy and sharing what I love with the world. Thank you for joining me on this journey.

    I have also become more “aware” over the past few years!
    4 years ago my life changed dramatically and the result was I became creative ( which I always have been but left it behind due to work)
    1 year ago I started to feel more “spiritual” without knowing why!
    6 months ago I needed to learn more about witchcraft and memories from my childhood flooded back ( amazing what you forget when you don’t understand !)
    1 month ago I embarked on a 7 day to Soul – no expectations but Oh My God!! Still processing this experience but it instantly changed my thinking – like coming out of the fog to a clear day!
    I am now so comfortable in my place.
    I am a solitary person and don’t feel the need to share, so usually celebrate my revelations on my own, so it is fabulous to share in others experiences.
    Looking back over my life, I totally understand it now and look forward to what comes my way in the future, to this open heart 💓
    I wish you all the love of the universe on your journey too xx
    Gill 🙏💚
