By Michelle Walling, CHLC – How To Ascend, Part 1
The knowledge of ‘How to Ascend’ lies within our DNA. Our monad carries the tools and knowledge we need to ascend from experiencing many lifetimes, and a copy of this akashic record has been lying dormant in our DNA. The ability to tap into this knowledge requires a clear and healed body of light, of which this in itself requires a manual of instruction. This is the dichotomy, the prime expression of duality in this lifetime- we need knowledge in order to find the user’s manual of knowledge. However, there is hope because each one of us holds an individualized key which unlocks the door of knowledge that contains our own personal ascension instruction manual.
In this game we call “life,” we decided that when we incarnated into this physical form we would forget where we put the key to unlocking the truth. We must have been completely out of our minds to think that we would enjoy this frustrating game of hide and seek, looking under every yellow brick that comprises the journey in the path of life. While preparing for this incarnation we decided we would have to give ourselves a clue. So we decided that we would trigger a certain point in our life that we would grow tired of picking up bricks and looking under them, and out of exhaustion, we would sit down to relax under a nice shade tree. While sitting under that shade tree, we would look down at our weary hands and feet and wonder how we would be able to continue on this path of searching. And that is when the magic would happen.
Our thoughts of defeat would be interrupted from a faint glow coming out of our heart. As we look down to our chest area, we would notice that it would begin to grow brighter and brighter the more that we looked at it. The more we looked at it, the more we began to forget about everything else that was happening, including the fact that it had begun to storm all around us with rain, thunder, and wind. The more it stormed the more we would bend over in protection, the brighter our light would shine from our heart as we curled up within ourselves into the fetal position. This is akin to the “dark night of the soul”. The more we hugged ourselves tight, the less we were affected by anything else that was happening around us. With our heads in our chest, we would be enveloped by the light emitting from our heart and we would begin to feel as if we were floating on a cloud of light. Music would fill our ears and we would feel dreamy and joyful. We would forget everything that had happened up to the point of now, wanting nothing more than to stay in this place of bliss forever.
But then we realized that we had only fallen asleep under the tree, lost in a dream with our head slumped into our chest. We would awaken to realize that it was getting late and that we hadn’t eaten in awhile and our animal instincts of survival would take over. We would no longer focus on bending over to look under bricks, but instead, looked forward down the winding path in search of home and a hot meal. Somehow, we came through the storm a little bit stronger, ready to face a new day.
This parable is just a reminder for us on how to find the truth. The truth feels good, it feels safe and cozy. The truth lies within our hearts and our heart chakra is the key to the door of knowledge that will teach us how to remember the way back to that cloud of light- which has been described as “home”.
What Is Ascension?
Ascension has been defined many ways and may mean something different to many people. Some say it means spreading our wings and floating up to heaven into the blissful light through the pearly gates without actually having to die. Another analogy is walking down a long hallway of doors and trying each lock with your key until you find the one that opens. That door will be meant just for you and to ascend involves walking through that door and opening your eyes to a whole new reality. If you were to sit at the end of the hallway and never try to open any of the doors then you would go nowhere. Some people have a really long hallway that seems to go on forever and some people have dropped their key and the hallway lights have been turned off. The silver lining is that there are light switches on the walls of the hallway and there is a way to find the door that you need to open… it will have light glowing from behind it.
To define How to Ascend, you must first look at the definition of ascension itself. Our language was created as a means of communicating but was also created to limit us. True, powerful communication does not use words, however for this explanation it is necessary.
The Merriam Webster dictionary’s definition of as·cen·sion is:
The act of rising or ascending; especially: the act of moving to a higher or more powerful position.
Interestingly, the dictionary describes this definition as a noun- as defining “the act of”. That is a linear and third dimensional hierarchal way of looking at ascension. There is no doubt that defining ascension as a thing rather than an action is even more limited. The truth is that there is no definition of ascension that can be put into words. However, describing the process of ascension might be more appropriate, which might be along the lines of:
Ascension is acknowledging and standing in your full power of who you are as you co-create the illusion of separation while existing in a high vibrational state of love. It involves consciously connecting with the tools and experiences of your akashic record held within your DNA with the help of your higher self by merging and balancing the high vibrational essence of who you are into physical manifestation.
What Does Ascension Mean?
So, what does ascension mean? We are divine, cosmic, individualized aspects of our Creator. In order to know itself, our Creator needed to expand, to experience. The energy field that is the Creator is so large that it cannot move throughout the cosmos, so Creator sent forth particles of itself that had to be stepped down in size and formed many monad creator beings. Then those creator beings sent forth particles of themselves into to souls and these souls sent forth an aspect of themselves into a physical body. The experience of being human is transmitted and mirrored back to Creator. Ascension is achieved by following the thread of consciousness that connects you, the human, to the wholeness of who you are as a spark of Creator and consciously increasing your light by bringing more of these particles into your physical body. Our bodies were designed by aspects of creator to have this experience but we first have to find the user’s manual to the human body. The thread of consciousness that connects us to our souls, monad, and Creator lies behind the doorway within our heart. Once the door is opened, the human body is the vehicle that will take us anywhere we want to go with the assistance of our higher self.
Each person incarnated on this planet has a prime opportunity to tap into the stream of light that is accessible to us in this time, due to the alignment of the planets and stars. Once we awaken to what we are here to do, most of us want to get on with it and rise like a phoenix out of the ashes and decide where we want to go to next. The ascended light body version of our human bodies have the codes needed to open many stargates and wormholes that will give us the choice of returning to a familiar place to visit old friends or soul family or to serve as ambassadors to other planets that may need our experiences in order to evolve in their own return back to Creator. The possibilities are as endless as our imaginations.
What Ascension Means to YOU
The knowledge of How to Ascend is a summary of the secrets within the traditions of spiritual, esoteric, and metaphysical practices. There are many ways and means to ascend and some practices work better than others for different people. This series on How to Ascend is not meant to be an all inclusive guide nor is it meant to be the only way. It is representative of turning on the light in the hallway of doors in order for you to find your key. There is no race to ascend and the only limitations involved are self imposed. Everyone will achieve what they came here to do on an individualized schedule and we will tend to connect and migrate toward those who are vibrating at the same level as we are. How much “work” you put into ascension determines the timing and progress of your ascension, coupled with the raising of the vibration of the planet as we are made of the same essence of her as well.
There are ten topics of discussion in How to Ascend. The first topic in this series will be covered in Part 2 and subsequent topics will be posted as they are written and released on the master website www.In5d.com on the main homepage. There will be 11 articles total. The articles will not be released in a particular order as far as placing a value of importance of one over another, but are consciously introduced in a manner of flow. The information presented in this series follows the In5d Copyright law: share this information freely with as many people as possible. When the topics are completed, the entire series will be combined and available as a free e-book exclusively available at www.In5d.com.
As a sneak preview, the follow up to “How to Ascend-– Ascension 101 – Part 1” will be: “How to Ascend- Part 2- Intention and Awareness”.
