Although this post initially begins with one of my card depictions reading, ‘goddess energy’, this post is not in anyway restricted to my goddesses alone, as we all have elements of goddess consciousness and goddess energy within us, regardless of whether we are male or female, and particularly now as we are welcoming back the healing energies associated with the divine feminine. A huge part of the ascension and healing process is recognising these feminine energies among us all, these are in relation to love, shelter, home, forgiveness, empathy and compassion. Okay, so before I get too distracted in describing one of my favourite topics, let me refocus to ascension. On a separate post I will be discussing ascension symptoms along with the dark night of the soul and how this compliments ascension, but for now we will stick to the parts of ascension where we feel ultimate relief upon finally achieving so much, and beginning our journeys of healing and oneness. We are currently in September, which in Latin means the seventh month, and as I have stated before this is a major month for us all in terms of spiritual growth and where we are on our ascension journey. The number seven is often referred to as the most spiritual number, the number of completion and perfection, and the number of God. This fits in so perfectly with the waves of ascension energy. So many of us will in recent months have been dealing with intense emotions arising from the past, twin flames who ignited our dark nights of the soul, and all of these repressed emotions rising to the surface to be cleared/healed. If you have successfully made it through this stage, it is likely that you reached the point in your progress where you feel almost invincible, like you can take on anything the material plane has to offer you, as you feel the manifestation of your new found wisdom. So everything appears to be going great, smooth, fluid, and then all of a sudden you are hit with even more things that irritate you to your very core. All of a sudden all of these triggers that you thought you had buried are being dug back up. This may include feelings such as uncertainty, and confusion within oneself, and external factors and persons that try to challenge your new found worth and wisdom. You may run into old family members who criticise and belittle your new lifestyle and beliefs, behaving as if you are still whom you once were, which in turn, may even make you doubt if you have made any progress at all, or if this whole ascension and healing process was all a figment of your imagination. You may also come across people who challenge and oppose your views so vehemently, some even with considerable and worthy points against your philosophy. All of this may bring you true frustration, as your ego struggles for the last time against what it has always known to be true, and the new information that you have now heavily downloaded within it. For the longest time, your ego has held onto anti healing beliefs, beliefs that keep you apart of victim consciousness, and play on old unresolved wounds, now that you have begun and very nearly completed the journey of healing, your ego wishes to truly put these theories to the test. It is very near surrender, yet still tries to appease itself by looking for outside factors that revive and mirror much of its old models. This is nothing to be ashamed of or to be worried about, this process is all about proving that you have finally learnt to trust, love and depend on the one person who has always needed you, YOU. You have lived an entire life of feeding energy to other people’s philosophies, diktats, and dogmas, and now it is finally the time to create your own. Your own beautiful, fantastical, and nourishing reality. It is absolutely necessary for you to learn during this period that your perspective is your gold, and your vision is your truth. The only reason that others were so able to effect your mind systems and perceptions earlier on in life, is because you gave them that initial opening, out of a weakening within yourself, (most notably some form of abuse). for this reason, now is your opportunity to show how the ascension process has fully healed you. This opposition will continue to present itself in your external world, as long as your external world still experiences a reluctance to fully trust self.
