Every time I think of the word ascension I imagine Jesus softly floating up to the sky.
Waving and smiling to all his loved ones, until he disappears of into the distance.
What can I say?
I was raised catholic in Argentina...
But the reality is that the symptoms experienced when our body's vibration is rising can be very overwhelming at times.
So I went looking to see what others were experiencing and found an article that was truly right on for me.
I thought I would share it, and add what I have experienced so far.
This is indeed a Divine process and a path that is being experienced by many in this world at this time.
I feel the more information we can all share, the better we help each other to stay out of fear.

Remember that not all of these symptoms may be due to the ascension process. Please follow your own inner guidance and consult a health care professional as needed. If you are experiencing a majority of these symptoms it is a good indication that you are experiencing the ascension process more fully.
Ascension Signs & Symptoms
You just 'know' or sense that something is happening to your body and you feel different. Your body doesn’t respond as it did previously to physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual patterns. Your body just feels “different” for reasons you can't explain.
(This was very obvious to me, I KNEW that something different was going on inside of me, but I had no idea what.My mind could not comprehend what was happening because the experience was outside my reality)
Changes in eating habits, food tastes and digestion. You may fluctuate between feeling hungry all the time to the inability to ingest food or lack of appetite. Sudden cravings for particular foods; suddenly liking foods you never liked before and sudden aversions to foods you used to enjoy.
( I was born in Argentina and meat was the main staple in my diet, I am now unable to eat meat, and this is one of many things my body can no longer ingest)
Body aches and pains all over or in particular areas; soreness in joints, muscles and bones for no apparent reason, and not due to physical exercise or fatigue.
(This morning I woke up and my body hurting everywhere. My best friends this morning were a very hot bath with dead sea salts, a ton of distilled water, and a natural salve to help with soreness.)
Feeling out of breath, like you can’t breathe deep enough, or breathing too fast for normal comfort; sometimes noticing you are holding your breath a lot.
( This started for me after December, but it seems to be tapering down now. I feel it is almost as if I am learning how to breathe correctly again.)
Blurred vision when reading or looking at long distances. Light sparkles or flashes of light in the peripheral vision from time to time, even after any eye problems have been ruled out. Awakening of the Third Eye (inner vision).
(This happens to me all the time, but of course when I try to see it all disappears. I feel I am trying too hard to "see" with my 3d eyes as opposed to seeing with my inner vision. I'm working on this, I am ready to see what I have been missing)
Rapid heart rate, heart palpitations or flutters that occurs from time to time spontaneously and not related to physical exercise or emotional upset. Awakening of the Heart Chakra (heart-centered consciousness and love).
(I had an EKG done three months ago, and all results came back negative.My doctor was amazed and told me I had the heart of a twenty year old.But please make sure and get everything checked out, it also helps to accept the symptoms and stay out of fear if there is physical proof that your heart is normal,or any other medical concern)
Pressure and pain in or around the head and face area, including skull, eyes, ears, sinuses, teeth and gums, often times shifting from one side to another.
(This I experienced, especially in my teeth and the back of my skull)
Irritable bowl symptoms or changes in digestion; fluctuating between periods of diarrhea and constipation; Increased gas, bloating or a feeling of 'fullness' not necessarily due to diet.
(Yes I know it is icky,but it is an amazing way of releasing lower energies from our bodies...plus if you ingest anything of a lower vibration which your body can't handle, you better start running to find a bathroom...that's all I'm saying...)
Feeling ungrounded at times for no apprent reason; feeling disoriented, confused, spacey or lightheaded or dizzy.
(Yes,yes,yes.Big issue with me. I feel it is because as I connect more to my Source,that is where I want to hang out, so part of me is there and part of me is here...I get lost driving alot.Best way to ground for me is to go out in Mother Nature,for she has amazing grounding and healing properties)
Weight gain or loss, suddenly or slowly, especially in the abdominal area, even if there are no changes in your diet.
(In the beginning of the process I gained about twenty pounds. Made me deal with a lot of self-esteem issues.In the last year I have lost that weight and probably about ten more.I feel too that many times I gain water weight to help regulate the intense energies which are flowing through me, and once I begin to integrate them, I lose weight from one day to the next.Sometimes as much as three or four pounds).
Back aches in any or all areas, pain along the spine, pain or soreness in the neck and shoulder areas.
(Especially along my spine, used to have intense pain along my shoulder blades but that has subsided)
Changes in body temperatures; increased sensitivity or intolerance to heat or cold.
(This is one of the toughest ones for me.I can be freezing inside and hot and clammy on my skin, or vice versa,often with unbelievable chills.Or burning up and being drenched in sweat.I feel that this is all part of the hypothalamus and the pineal glands starting to come back "online")
Frequent headaches or migraines that don't respond to medicine; sharp pains or strange sensations that suddenly occur in the head/skull area, often in one particular spot or side, often alternating sides.
(Another of the toughest for me. The headaches are absolutely debilitating when they occur. Sometimes if I feel one starting I take aspirin((with nothing else in it)) and this seems to help with the intensity Often times I end up in bed and ask for help(I call in my medical team) with the pain, shortly afterwards I fall asleep.When I wake up it is gone.)
Feeling of intense or uncomfortable head pressure, often at the skull/crown area as if your head is being squeezed.
(For me especially at the bottom of my skull)
Moments of memory loss that may occur on and off or for short periods of time; brain freezes or brain fog, forgetting why you've walked into a room; often forgetting simple words during conversations or forgetting what you are about to say.
(What? I forgot what I was going to say...24/7)
Clumsiness, lack of coordination control at times, bumping into walls or objects more often at times.
(Nothing is funnier than to see a full grown woman walk into the wall.Or the table.Or the chair.I have to remind myself that we are multidimensional beings of light and I am remembering that.At the moment of impact I was in another place, there was no wall,but here there is one.It is a hard wall.Got it.)
Tingling sensations or 'falling asleep' of limbs, particularly the arms, hands, legs or feet, but sometimes feeling this sensation at the top of your head or in other parts of the body that are uncommon.
(My hands tingle a lot,this has been pretty constant for me.)
Experiencing moments of audio dyslexia where someone is speaking but it is as if you can't process the information or understand what they are saying; periods where words seem to lose their meaning or don't make sense in the same way they used to.
(This is weird la-la-land stuff.I see their mouths moving but the words coming out are not connecting to my ears because I don't understand them.Or I think I understand them but it is a million miles away from what they were actually saying,and when I answer everyone looks at me like I am a goofball)
Bouts of crying for no apparent reason; bouts of hysterical laughter for no apparent reason.
(Yes,still, both are very intense but I feel such clarity afterwards because it is such an intense release.All emotional release for me is always welcome, especially as I cry I release issues,thoughts,paradigms,ideas,etc...,all which are no longer for my highest good or for the highest good of all.I try to drink a lot of distilled water afterwards so that I don't get a headache, because if I cry a lot it can bring on bad headaches due to dehydrating myself.)
Sudden itching all over or in various areas of the body for no reason; also, skin rashes, swelling, and other unusal skin changes.
(I have had skin rashes lately as well as a lot of itching.This is something new for me.As I scratch my head uncontrollably, I tell my friends that my lice are acting up...)
Changes in hair texture and even slight changes in color or highlights; thinning or dry looking hair that suddenly returns to normal; hair and nails frowing at a faster rate than usual.
(One day my hair looks and feels great, the next day I have dead hair.Lately my nails have been growing very quickly)
Feeling unsual vibrations or a vibrating sensation within the body; periods of unexplainable nervousness or anxiety that comes and goes spontaneously for no apprent reason.
( I feel that sometimes the feelings of anxiety are not mine, I am just transmuting them for the collective)
Unusual, intense or wild dreams or visions that can be pleasant, or even frightening; reoccuring dream themes or certain people appearing in dreams often; bizarre abstract dreams that are difficult to explain. Periods where you can not recall any dream activity at all.
(I have always had prophetic dreams, even as a child, but since December I pretty much have no recollection at all of any dreams)
Periods of extreme fatigue for no apprent reason that happens out of the blue, or upon awakening although being fully rested; also, periods of feeling wide awake and energized despite lack of sleep.
(This is common for me.When these times occurr it is impossible for me to stay awake.I will usually fall into a deep sleep between 1 to 2 hours.I feel these are times when I am receiving information, or downloads as I call them)
Changes in hearing or unusual sounds; ringing in the ears, hearing beeps, pings, tones, frequencies, whoosing or pulsating sensations. Periods of extreme sensitivity to sounds where they appear louder than usual, and periods where sounds seem more muffled.
(Lately I hear bells,or tones, but when I pay attention,of course they disappear.I feel that, as with all my senses which are expanding, I am starting to develop enhanced hearing,or clairaudience.Another of the skills we possess, which we have forgotten)
Cold/Flu like symptoms that appear and then dissapear without actually developing a cold or flu.
( This usually happens to me if the place where I am is not a confortable vibration for me, sometimes this is called a "vibrational flu")
Hot flashes or night sweats; feeling heat sensations throughout your body for no apparent reason, or sometimes unsual chills that come and go.
(This is one of the first symptoms that I had.I went to the doctor at the time but all my hormones were normally balanced.I feel this happens as the body burns off the dross from lower energies which are being released.)
Increased psychic awareness and sensitivity, clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, heightened intuition, prophetic or precognitive dreams or visions occuring more often.
(As we expand our consciousness we also expand our senses.We are able to see,feel,taste,hear and smell more than what we used to be able to do with our senses)
Noticing shimmers or sparkles of light within the environment, especially in nature, a strange haze, halos or aurus around people or trees, plants and animals. Lights may suddenly appear more bright and intense, or unusual. Objects appear to fade away or dim in and out of focus.
(Adjusting to a new way of seeing...our third eye opening)
Causing interference in electrical appliances; electronic devices behaving in an unsual way or malfunctioning within your presense, especially when you are in a heightened state of emotion such as anger or sadness; having light bulbs blow out or flicker when you are near.
(This is getting expensive.Blew out another hair dryer.I blow out electronics often, too much energy transferring between me and electronics I think...)
The feeling or perception that time is speeding up or moving faster; feeling that you can't accomplish all that you want or experiencing a sense of urgency or that 'time running out'; also, a feeling that 'something is about to happen'.
( I no longer have a sense of time, but I did indeed feel a sense of urgency in the beginning of this process for me.I no longer feel this.)
Changes in sleep patterns; sleeping for shorter periods and then awakening and falling asleep again; awakening often between the hours of 2 am - 4 am for no apparent reason.
(We process so much during our sleep that we need to wake up to take breaks.Early morning is when it is quiet and therefore a great time to integrate these new energies flowing through our bodies. Don't let it upset you, try to find something that you enjoy doing and use that time to do it)
A feeling of detachment or wanting to withdraw suddenly from family, friends and coworkers and habitual patterns that once excited you. The feeling is not due to depression, but more from a sense of wanting to be in your own space or not being able to relate to them in the same way as before.
(As our body's vibration rises ,it becomes more and more difficult to be around lower energies.We withdraw from all that is no longer in alignment with our new,shiny selves)
Feeling as you don’t belong, as if you are invisible to others, or as if you are a total stranger. Strange moments where you feel others can’t hear you, or you can’t hear or see them.
(Also many times people will walk into me as if they don't see me.My guess is that I am in between spaces and so in a way they really can't see me)
Looking out at your environment and feeling as if you are experiencing a dream world or alternative reality, that it’s not real or something looks 'fake', out of place or unusal.
(A very unusual feeling, to look around and have the world look not quite right. I feel that once again I am adjusting to seeing the world with my new "senses")
A strong feeling that you are lost and don't know 'who you are'. A feeling of being someone other than you thought you were before. Periods of wanting to 'find yourself'.
(Yes this is still me to an extent. For I am nothing like the person I was for 47 years,everything about me is different, and therefore I am starting to discover this new self)
A sudden feeling of being connected to nature and animals like never before; an increased sensitivity to plants, trees, flowers; a deep understanding and appreciation of nature and animals, and more natural or serene environments.
(This is amazing for my connection to nature is unbelievable now. All I need to do is step outside and my vibration instantly rises.I feel such incredible love for this earth)
Abrupt changes in job, friends, hobbies, interests, or living environments, or a sudden feeling of wanting to relocate or being drawn to a particular area.
(If it is not for your highest good, it is not for the greatest good of all,for we are all connected.It will be released one way or another and abrupt changes will occur to help you get back in alignment with your true self))
Profound sense of connection with angelic and cosmic beings and an Increase feeling of Divine Love; moments of deep revelation and appreciation for life; a feeling of love, peace, understanding and interconnectedness.
(When we connect and realize that we have never been alone, the sense of peace and love is amazing)
A sudden increase in synchronicity - meaningful coincidences that occur when you least expect them. You may notice 11:11 and other repeating number sequences such as 111, 1212, 333, 444, 144, etc., popping up in your day-to-day life in unusual ways whenever you 'happen to look'.
(Yes,yes,yes! And this is so amazing,for signs come to us in the form of numbers to give us guidance and support.The message conveyed? You are on the right path.Keep going, for you are amazing.)
Increased "self talk." You'll find yourself talking to your Self more often. Experiencing more telepathic communication with close friends and family, and even animals. Moments in conversation where you feel energized with extremely clear and profound speaking and then not being able to recall or repeat it the same way or with the same clarity, as if it were profound wisdom coming from your higher self.
(I talk to myself all the time.Incredibly connected to my dog Sally, our relationship seems to have changed because I do communicate with her so easily now, and she with me.Telepathy starting to develop between me and soul family members.I have had instances where I said things which I had no recollection of, which later I am told have really helped others.The first time it happened it freaked me out for it felt as if I was standing beside myself hearing myself speak,but now the integration is smoother)
A deep longing to go Home. You may experience a deep and overwhelming desire to leave the planet and return to Home. This is not a "suicidal" feeling. It is not based in anger or frustration.
(When you finally connect to the Source of Light and Love and remember that love is the answer, it makes us want to leave this dense planet and return to our Source. Eventually this feeling changes as instead of thinking of home "out ther, you think of home inside your heart and therefore always with you.However the feeling of wanting to go Home still pops up for me,but it is getting better to handle emotionally)
Lately I have also had bouts of extreme nausea,especially during solar flares and magnetic storms,sometimes making me throw up, other times making me dizzy.
Also lately I have developed what I call a "honeybadger attitude"( this is a very funny video on youtube which explains how honeybadgers don't really care about much except eating and so even if they get stung a million times they just don't care...) don't really care about rules or laws or whatever, at this point my goal is to raise my vibration so I can ground the light and help support the raising of the planet's vibration, in which ever way is for the highest good of all.
Now with this heavy list I will give you the light list,here are more signs that you are raising your vibration...
Feeling inner peace
Wanting to play,play,play
Completion of your Soul Journey
Feeling One with All
Shine bright my beautiful family of light.
We are doing a beautiful job, for we are divine in everything we do.
Don't forget that this is a process, therefore eventually these symptoms do pass as we release more and more of who we are not.
And as we release, we make more room within us for more light to fill us...connecting us more and more to our Source of All that Is.
All we need to do is stay in our hearts and remember to ask for help when needed,for this is a free will planet, and our light family cannot actively help us, unless we ask for help.
And don't forget to love yourself through this, after all you are here, and you are doing it, you are helping raise the vibration of this planet.
How amazing is that?
How amazing are we?
In Light and Love
