Ascension--the Time is Now
by Joanna Cherry
Ascension! What is it? It's becoming a watchword
these days. Most basically, it is a quickening, a speeding up of vibrational
frequency that includes our body, mind and heart. Frequency is that which
identifies something--anything, our car, a water bottle, a human body--as
itself. Pluck two guitar strings; the one with the higher pitch has a faster
rate of vibration, which is frequency. Water is identified in its three states
through frequency; in its slowest frequencies it is ice, in faster ones liquid,
and in still faster ones gas. Copyright Joanna Cherry, 2007
What happens to a human body when its
frequencies speed up? It heads toward light, or energy, the basic stuff of
the universe. Einstein's famous theory, E=MC2, is saying in basic terms that
if you speed up matter enough, you get energy. So actually, if you speed
up your car enough, (not in miles per hour!) you also get light. (Don't do
this if you want to get to Tulsa!) This is a reversal of the process which
formed our universe: it began as light, and when denser forms such as galaxies
and planets were wanted, the frequencies of light were slowed down to create
matter. Right now, our bodies are quickening, becoming lighter--ascending.
When a human body fully ascends, its frequencies speed up so much that
it is able to step into a lighter dimension, a higher-frequency realm than
the third dimension, and leave no physical body behind in death. Thousands
of people have ascended before us; most stay in lighter realms, serving Earth
and all life and humanity upon it. We know some of their names: Jesus, Mary,
Babaji, St. Germain, Buddha, Quan Yin, El Morya, Annalee Skarin, Kuthumi,
Christine Mercie, Sanat Kumara, Lady Nada, Djwal Kuhl, Madame Blavatsky, Serapis
Bey, and others.
(Even before ascending, a human body
may be rejuvenated and become immortal; this is because the body is formed
by thought, in every moment, and may be changed by thought in any moment.
But that is for another article.)
What happens to a human heart and mind
when they speed up? They move into enlightenment, and into the unlimited
possibilities of divinity. The limitations we experience as part of the human
condition are not natural for us. We are great beings who are one with universal
mind, which can also be called God. In some of our early experiences on Earth,
we knew we were unlimited--our bodies lived, they didn't age or get sick
and they only died through accident. We could speed up our bodies into light,
fly around the stars for awhile, and come back--or not.
Working for a living was unheard of.
We could create anything we wanted by first forming it mentally, and then
slowing down the frequencies of the mental creation until it became solid.
We could travel by thought, instantly, anywhere we wanted to go. But long,
long ago we began to forget our essential truth, and to believe the physical
world the most real; that we were our bodies, and these aged, sickened and
died; that we could experience lack. We created war. We have become so used
to these limited conditions that our natural state seems like an impossible
fantasy to us now; but most religions call our early times Eden, or paradise.
Ascension is our return to this unlimited
state. It is our divinity felt and expressed, on this plane or a lighter
one. It is BEING who we are: joy, love, life, light.
The good news is, we're beginning to
recall our greatness. This begins unconsciously for most of us, until we
come to a point where, gradually or suddenly, we have a new outlook. For
me it happened back in 1971, when I woke one morning with--simply--a realization
that God existed, and that I had a relationship with It. This put me on a
path of meditation and study, meeting my inner Self and master friends who
help me on my journey, becoming a minister and finally a spiritual teacher.
We are awakening at different times and different speeds, and each of us has
our own way of doing it; but it's happening to people in every walk of life.
Eventually, every one of us will remember who we are.
But why now? Simply, because it's time.
It's the end of an old era. We're tired of pretending to be something we're
not: limited. We've learned all we wanted about 3-D, its joys and its tribulations.
The Earth herself, a living being, is shaking off physical density and ascending,
and we are going with her.
This time has been prophecied by the
Mayans, the Bible, the Hopi Indians and other ancient cultures. I am speaking
not of "Earth changes"--though these are yet possible--but of the Age of
Light, the Golden Age. On some level of our being we have all agreed to co-create
this era, now.
How do we experience the birth of this
new era? For one thing, consciously or unconsciously we are calling in light--the
divine, infinite light of our being--to shine into everything, including
all our dark corners. This can feel really scary because the darkness usually
has to "come up"--come to consciousness--in order to be released. From all
our past lives and the cellular DNA memory of our race, the darkness is coming
up! This is why, along with our real progress in peace and freedom, darkness
is also intensifying.
But as we bring our love forward (we
may call our love Goddess/God, our I Am Presence, our Christ Self, our inner
or higher self, etc.), it knows how to take us through all difficulties to
the other side.
We have tremendous help in all this.
The ascended masters, names known and unknown, have formed a brother-sisterhood
to assist each one of us into the joy, life, oneness, power, wisdom, knowing,
love and light of our being. Any of them may be called upon, and nothing
gives them greater joy than assisting. Our personal and guardian angels,
and all the archangels are here for us. Many on Earth have garnered wisdom
which may benefit others. But most important, we have the help of our own
Self, that unlimited, unique consciousness within. When we nurture connection
with our true being and can be accurately guided by it, this takes us straight
along our best path.
Just how do you ascend? First of all,
intend to ascend. Then follow your heart, your joy, your love-these are directly
connected with your true self. Does something inspire you, excite you? Do
that! You are loved and supported in doing it; use your practical wisdom
to bridge your old ways with your new. Forgive yourself--for everything--past,
present and future. Love yourself, your every thought, feeling, and action
as quickly as possible. Loving your anger, for example, turns it gradually
into love. Heal your relationships. Embrace everything that happens as fully
as you can, knowing you create each experience as a mirror to learn from.
Love everyone around you--everyone--as much as you can. Discover or reinforce
how you want to give to the world; this can be any form, as long as your
love is included in the giving.
Define yourself anew! Take "I can't"
and "I don't know" from your vocabulary. Take out the words/thoughts "I am"
followed by anything limited (tired, poor, sick). I Am a truly unlimited being
and I can, I know. Focus upon your own divinity: see it, feel it, breathe
it, be it. See the divine in others. Have patience with the process of moving
into mastery; we have believed in limitation for eons. Just do it step by
step, clearing out more and more of the limiting beliefs. (This may include
facing and clearing past lives; it certainly includes clearing the unconscious.)
Embrace your expansion, flow with the quickening taking place on Earth, and
welcome the changes. Forgive yourself when you forget.
We have been discovering more and more
about how ascension happens. For you it may be gradual, or you may take a
big leap here and there. Without any particular experience needed as a prerequisite,
you may become an ascended master on Earth. If you "go up" into a lighter
dimension, you have the choice to remain there or return to Earth and help
others. Choosing planetary 3-D life, you can relearn and make use of human
natural abilities: travel by thought, instant manifestation, rejuvenation,
and immortality. You may do all this in your body of eternal, youthful beauty.
Ascension is your natural state. If
you are so guided, go for it!
