Three Questions to Ask Yourself During Ascension Times
We are living in ascension times, amidst a global awakening, and we are evolving.
We are evolving as a human collective, by way of evolving as individuated aspects of that collective.
We are shifting out of denser frequencies into light bodies, in a natural process that is beyond our control.
All we need to do is clear the path for the light to come in. Something these three questions are designed to help you do.
Question #1: Where am I on my ascension journey?
Whether you’ve been actively participating in it or not, you’ve been ascending as you move through life and the experiences herein.
That’s because you were designed to ascend.
As a light being, your purpose is to move closer towards the truest expression of your highest self - to unify as one with your higher purpose. This is the process of ascension.
As you move through life, experiences emerge as stepping stones on your path towards authenticity and enlightenment.
These experiences serve as lessons from which you may learn more about yourself, your current state of being and the next step.
How you embrace these lessons - with openness or resistance - is a sign of where you are on your ascension journey.
- Am I open to the lessons offered up in the experiences I find myself facing?
- Am I resistant to experiences that don’t bring me instant gratification? And if so, is this enabling me from receiving the lessons intended for me through these experiences?
Question #2: What belief systems got me here?
When you embrace life’s lessons with openness, you move more freely towards alignment with your greatest self. When you embrace them with resistance, you move in opposition to that which will be.
In both instances, you continue to move forward and onwards. In the former, you do so with ease and in the latter you do so in struggle.
The ride is always moving in the same direction, your free will merely determine how you experience the bumps in the road.
Your free will is directly impacted by your beliefs, and those beliefs are directly impacting your perceptions - and therefore your actions.
Essentially, you move in unison with what you believe to be truth, making choices and honouring perceptions that align with those beliefs.
In this way, your beliefs fuel your ability to either open up to or resist life’s lessons. This is why questioning your beliefs is important.
What do I believe to be true, that impedes my ability to open up to all of life’s experiences, with the same enthusiasm?
How would shifting those beliefs better serve me?
What do I believe to be true, that encourages my ability to open up to all of life’s experiences, with the same enthusiasm?
What do I believe to be true about life?
What do I believe to be true about my life?
What do I believe to be true about healing?
What do I believe to be true about suffering?
What do I believe to be true about joy?
What do I believe to be true about my capabilities?
What do I believe to be true about the world?
What do I believe to be true about humanity?
Question #3: What belief systems did I release to get to where I am?
If you find that some of your beliefs are the cause of a journey embarked in struggle, and you decide to amplify joy in your life, you may choose to shift or release those beliefs.
Most of our belief systems are hand-me-downs from our parents, teachers, schoolmates and the media (including music, movies, the news and so much more).
Like sponges, we absorbed beliefs from all around us as we moved from infancy to adulthood.
Along the way, we released some belief systems to make way for others. Whether it was releasing our parents beliefs to make way for those of our peers, or releasing the beliefs of our peers to make room for those of our partners, and so on, we’ve been swapping out beliefs for beliefs our entire life.
When you consider it, you’ve probably released and accumulated many beliefs over the course of your life - some that serve your flourishing and others that impede it.
The beliefs that you are able to release over the course of your life serve as a testament to your self-sovereignty. The process of being able to release beliefs is a reminder that you have dominion over them.
This process also serves as a reminder of what you are capable of. If you were able to release beliefs in the past, then surely you’re able to do so again should you need to.
And if you can release beliefs at will, then you can adopt them in this same manner as well.
What beliefs have I released to get to where I am on my ascension journey?
Why did I release that/those belief(s)?
How did I release that/those belief(s)?
How has the release of that/those belief(s) served me on my ascension journey?
What belief(s) took root where that/those belief(s) once resided?
Which of those two belief systems align better with my ascension goals?
Which of the two enable joy on my ascension journey?
Which of the two encourage suffering on my ascension journey?
In some instances, you may even find that you’ve buried a belief that serves your process well, and in its place you’ve adopted one that does not.
It’s never too late to change your mind!
Whether you are consciously aware of it or not, releasing/integrating beliefs is always an act of will - a choice.
Buried within the depths of your sub-conscious, there is a knowing that exists beyond belief.
This knowing is what pulls you forward on your ascension journey. It’s the divine part of you that knows there is no other destination.
Within the conscious mind, though, we adopt beliefs that have the power to either accelerate our process and infuse it with joy, or decelerate our progress and encourage suffering.
When we can authentically identify where we are on our ascension journey, alongside the beliefs that we released/integrated to get here, we gain sovereignty over those beliefs and our life journey.
In this way, we shift the ways in which we experience life, and eventually the life itself.
