The Cycle of Ascension - Part 2

In Part 1 of the Cycle of Ascension, we discussed the stages in the Cycle of Ascension and the 3 triggers that catalyze this cycle. We also showed you the infographic of the cycle — the cycle that repeats over and over throughout life, just like a fibonacci spiral or a DNA strand. 

In this email, we’ll talk about the second stage of the Ascension Cycle. When your external world blows up or you’re shaken to your core, you can feel dissociated and frankly, you can experience all sorts of emotional, mental and physical symptoms (check out the blog post on Ascension Symptoms).   

This stage is called the “Debate of the Calling.” Think of the Calling as the end goal of this Cycle— it’s what the Universe is pulling you towards to help you level-up.

In this stage, you can be feeling and thinking things like:
  • Is this really true? 
  • Do I need to look into this?  
  • Why isn’t this working anymore? Maybe if I try harder.
  • This can’t be happening.
  • If only I could have done things differently... 
  • If only I could turn back time...
  • Just let me be OK… 
  • Why me? 
  • It’s not fair... 
  • How can this happen to me? 
  • Who is to blame? 
  • The world is a lie... 
  • My whole life is a lie… 

This stage can WIDELY vary from crouching in a corner— to seeking (in vain) for a way out. 

It’s OK to feel all these feelings. Every time you start a new Cycle of Ascension, it can be easy to miss. It can feel like it’s “just another problem” and you may not realize you’re starting a new cycle. That’s why this information is so life-changing! When you understand that all of life is a pattern, it can empower you to find value in the struggle.

In the next few blog posts, we’ll take you through each stage of the Cycle of Ascension and how to make it through the stage.

For this second “Debate” stage, how do you make it through to the next stage? 

  1. Acknowledge what’s bubbling up. There’s a principle that energy increases until it’s acknowledged or released (think of a volcano). This goes for emotions, thoughts, the physical body, stress and life experiences. Simply become aware and acknowledge that you’re experiencing what you’re experiencing. Notice what you notice. Be kind to yourself. Apply compassion. You don’t have to act or make any decisions yet.
  2. Increase Understanding. Seek out guidance and information. You don’t have to make any decisions yet; simply seek out new information and possible solutions. 

Watch for our next blog post in the next couple of days when we go over the next stage of the Cycle of Ascension.

Sending much love,
