Last night, I slept through it — seven hours straight. Praise the Lord. It was so luxurious to wake up rested and happy. Reminded me of the old days…a year or so ago.
Apparently, “There are those whose sleep patterns no longer seem to actually have a pattern,” channels Ron Head for Archangel Michael (11/8/12). He mentions other such recent Ascension Symptoms as periods of euphoria and “‘buttons’ no longer responding when pushed.” I can personally attest to the blurry vision — glittering particles, flashes of light, changes of color — happening with my eyesight.
These and other symptoms are huge improvements. Except for the erratic sleep patterns…. Used to be people experiencing Ascension Symptoms would report waking only once at 3 a.m. on the hour. Others, between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m., the time of cleansing and releasing.
It’s probably no coincidence that “waking up” is the term used for those just opening their third-eye to realities beyond the physical, i.e., higher dimensions, Christ Consciousness, energy vibrations, Galactics, Angels, Ascended Masters, reincarnation…the whole ball of Ascension wax. So that, ironically, when you wake up…you can’t sleep. Wait — actually that would be the opposite of ironic.
When I started “waking up” in 2006, as the saying goes, most all Ascension Symptoms sounded identical to Menopause. At 49, this was not much help. Nevertheless, I used to subscribe to Karen Bishop’s “Energy Alerts” from her now defunct web site “What’s Up on Planet Earth.” Here’s a brief sampling of those
Menopausal Ascension Symptoms:
- memory loss
- emotional ups and downs
- night sweats and hot flashes
- aches and pains
- don’t feel like doing anything
- days of extreme fatigue
- wanting to nap all day
And my all-time combination favorite:
- abdominal weight gain and inability to lose it
“Buddha belly” everyone called it. People who’d been skinny all their lives grew stomach pots around the mid-2000s. Bishop reasoned it was due to needing fuel for the Ascension process, yet with an inability to use it. Another theory was that the “loss” of our old ways of being in the third-dimension was causing us to “fill ourselves up again” with food. Emotional eating, in other words. “Trust” was Bishop’s antidote. (I was thrilled to hear that this symptom has reversed of late with noticing a lightness in our physical weight.)
At one time in 2008, Bishop wrote, “I feel completely invisible, unnoticed, not needed and certainly not appreciated.” If that doesn’t describe a 50-plus menopausal woman, I don’t know what does. You can ask my husband. It does remind me of a funny line delivered by Kathy Bates in her guest role on the HBO series, “Six Feet Under.” During a klepto shopping spree, she says something to the effect, “Oh, the anonymity of being 50.”
Anyway, because Karen Bishop was such the lifeline to a growing cadre around 2006, I want to give her book, The Ascension Primer, a mention. It goes into much further detail as to the reasons for the Ascension Symptoms just listed, and more. The book is currently available on Amazon here (but hurry, only three left in stock at the time of this writing). Alternately, you can find a plethora of web sites that have helped themselves to Bishop’s material (one or two not even naming Bishop as the original author.)
I will say that Bishop’s book The Ascension Primer remains perennially “current” because Ascension Symptoms are a “rolling” phenomenon in that as one wakes up — no matter when — various symptoms seem to unfold much the same to a greater or lesser degree. There is no shortcut — though the symptoms are cycling faster and faster as The Light increases.
But the fact that Ascension Symptoms and Menopausal Symptoms are so much the same…. Is it random? A projection? Doubtful. In many cultures, a post-menopausal woman is considered a Wise Woman, an Elder, a Crone, a Grandmother. Menopause is a rite of passage toward wisdom.
My friend George, part Cherokee, told me that before certain tribal nations went to war, such as the Iroquois, they always consulted their own Council of Grandmothers for a decision. The Lenni Lenape “were and always have been for peace and never believe in war.” Now if Bush Junior and, more crucially, Dick Cheney had asked me whether we ought to go to war in Iraq…at least 109,032 people might still be alive as of 2010. (But I wasn’t yet a Wise Crone then, so maybe that’s why they never got in touch.)
Last week, November 8-11, 2012, the International Council of 13 Grandmothers met in Nepal where they conducted the program, “Praying for Peace in the Land of the Buddha” (http://www.grandmotherscouncil.org/). I might add that 13 is a sacred number to many indigenous cultures: 13 moons in a year (associated with menses to Native Americans). 13 Heavens in the Mayan cosmology, whose calendar is ending in 33 days. 12 disciples with Jesus as the 13th at The Last Supper — signaling The Resurrection and Ascension.
See, I am sure there’s a correlation between the symptoms. And the cool thing is that now men get to experience them, too.
