Ascension symptoms are largely due to un-groundedness and imbalance in your energetic system. You don't need to raise your vibration any further, as you are probably resonating to high for everyday life on earth anyway. What you do need to do is find activity that will ground you.
For example, if you are suffering the consequences of the New Energy passing through you and rupturing your energetic system, you may find activities like yoga, weight training, sports to have a cool and soothing effect on you.
The symptoms of pains, depression and the like are being caused by the amplified frequency of the Avataric Energy that is entering the earth very strongly at this time. We are trying to speed things up in essence, but you have to be grounded. This isn't a problem for the average person as their lower chakras are already open, and this energy passes through them (relatively!) unnoticed. However, this energy is causing great problems for many Light Workers whose higher chakras are open more than their lower. The Avataric Energy comes through you, into your crown chakra and will begin to blast your third chakra apart, as it cannot fully make its way down any further than this.
Of course this New Energy is making its way into the world through the many Light Workers who have done the work in the past to move humanity to the point that they are at this time. At the moment however, some Light Workers are only able to ground 5-10% of this Avataric Energy, which is beginning to slowly cook them.
This situation is set to get worse as the New Energy is set to amplify further, and is already 100% more potent than in 2011, now we have passed into 2012.
May the Fathers Will be Done.
