Note from Gary: Many writings appear 'good' to me at first glance, then the initial enthusiasm fades as it's brought into balance. What's right or wrong, true or false, anyway -- except on the terms of society? Perhaps it's more a matter of what's useful in the moment, to a person on their journey.
The twelve levels of ascension can be misleading, as they are viewed and approached in a linear way. Nothing can be taken as fixed truth.
Human experience is very complex, yet very little of the whole is realized. There is a mix of all, constantly shifting in the individual experience. Still, when a person looks closely enough, some nuggets of usefulness can be found in almost anything -- and I discovered some 'light' in the following.
The below is written by Cedar Rivers and reprinted here:
THE 12 LEVELS OF ASCENSION
1. Body aches and pains, especially in the neck, shoulder and back. This is the result of intense changes at your DNA level as the "Christ seed" awakens within. More important, your Merkabah, energetic transportal Body, has/is being upgraded and made new. This will be understood more fully as you progress. Suffice to say, ageing, dis-ease, and limitations are freed with-in this New Experiencing Device.
We are all evolving and absorbing Light at our own pace. Some are consciously working with these changes and so their transmutation is quicker, some are unaware and are absorbing this Light and change in direct relation to planetary change. However, one can classify this creation into levels...
- when the body drops density it commonly displays mutational symptoms of flu, headaches, diarrhoea, rashes, muscle and joint aches. Most flu epidemics are actually Light epidemics! Brain chemistry changes, right and left brain functions blend and the pituitary and pineal glands begin to change in size. The DNA structure and chemical components begin to change and pick up extra hydrogen atoms and chemicals that the cells need to take undifferentiated higher Light and break it down into useable Light encodements for the DNA.
- the etheric blueprint floods with light and releases karmic experiences, individuals may feel disoriented as well as experience of 'bouts of flu'. Many begin to question "why am I here". Light in the etheric blueprint releases 4th dimensional structure and causes spins in the geometries of the emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Change is rapid and many feel tired.
- physical senses become much stronger. Your bodies not only absorb Light for its own change but also acts as a transducer- decoder of higher light energies to the planet as a whole. The process of the in-breath is now irreversible, like an elastic band that has been stretched to maximum capacity, been let go of and will return to its natural state.
- major changes are in the brain and its chemistry and electromagnetic energies - symptoms are often headaches, blurry vision, loss of hearing and sometimes chest pains. Crystal regulators in the etheric body keep lines of light within the 5th dimensional blueprint from connecting again until you are ready. Chest pains are due to the expanding energies of the heart as it opens to deeper levels. Vision and hearing are being realigned to function differently.
The mental body begins to wonder if it really is in charge and individuals get strong unexplainable and undeniable urges to follow spirit without hesitation. Individuals may get lashes of telepathy, clairvoyance and nearly all begin to experience empathy. This is a time of feeling, of honouring and accepting and validating the emotional body and learning to control it.
- the mental body decides to tune to spirit, dreams change and may become more 'lucid', you get feelings of dejà vu. Thought processes become non-linear. Being's oscillate between knowing and doubt. We realise the habitual nature of thinking and behaviour and look at de-programming and re-programming to create the "I" we wish to be, not the "I" we thought we were from our interaction with parents, peers and society etc. Change seems to be constant and we consciously begin to discern from our heart rather than judge from 'conditioned responses'.
- we draw to us others for mutual support and stimulation of growth. We question what is real, our mental process and how we identify with others and ourselves changes rapidly. Re-evaluation may be uncomfortable but we feel it must be done - we look at our relationships, jobs, home environment, living styles, it is a time of letting go, of moving on. We change our friends, everything feels to be in a state of flux but we feel lighter, vaster, and freer somehow. By this stage the Light quotient in our being is 33% - we feel as though we are opening up our inner senses and clairvoyance, clairaudience etc. seem normal and natural to us.
- the heart chakra opens more, we become more 'real' with other emotions, we just have to be ourselves! We release blocks and old patterns - it is a time of great emotional clearing and great intensity as we seek to rid ourselves of emotional baggage. We feel more in tune with each moment, feeling very present and flowing with life.
Often old relationships end or change rapidly as Being's dig deep and honour their feelings - there is simply no room for denial on any level. We begin to lose emotional attachment to others.
Chest pains (angina) are more common as the heart continues to open its energy fields. (Doing the Unified chakra meditation will assist in the heart opening).
Fear at this time is released as the energy fields of all the bodies are realigned through the heart and when aligned, fear drops away. Pressure at the forehead or back or the head is due to the opening of the pituitary and pineal glands as they absorb more light, when these glands are fully open, activated and functioning at the highest level, ageing and death cease. When the pineal gland is fully open we experience multi-dimensionality yet duality seems to increase as we leave it behind.
Some days we feel connected and joyous, others we are in fear and caught up in survival issues. Many wish to 'ascend' and leave the planet as we sense the very real possibility of ascension through our deepening connection with spirit. As we learn to follow our joy, we may then want to 'save the planet' and have everyone follow their joy.
ALL are stages of progression and reflect our changing perception. Dietary wise, you feel to eat less, more light, live food - many at this stage have ceased to eat meat, sugar and drink alcohol as they 'feel' the effects of these substances on the vibrational fields of the body.
- we leave the 'saving and rescuing' mode behind. The pineal and pituitary glands change shape, if headaches persist ask the Beings who are working with you to simply 'tone it down' for they don't feel pain, or ask them to release endorphins - the brains natural opiate.
The brain is being activated - particularly the cerebrum, the 'sleeping giant'. Cranial expansion is common; triangular 'seed crystals' in the brow and recorder crystals in the right side of the brain are activated along with the 8th, 9th and 10th chakras. We begin to be hooked into the languages of Light.
The pituitary and pineal glands are opened fully and work together to create the 'Arc of the Covenant', a rainbow light that arcs over the top of the head to the third eye that is a decoding mechanism for higher dimensional language. You may find it hard to find words to express yourself as you may think in geometries and tones. If confused do the unified chakra meditation and ask for messages to be decoded and translated. Again you become much more aware of the vastness and multi-dimensionality of your nature, that you can be anything that you want to be, you cease to operate from obligation and relationships become transpersonal.
You share words from your heart and soul and others may feel disorientated when dealing with you as they no longer have 'hooks' into you to link with. You operate from a deep level of serenity with heightened sensitivity and awareness yet feel grounded and transformed. By this stage, it is possible to be sustained purely by Light and prana, to take no nourishment from the atmospheric realms and to be healthily sustained by the etheric.
- decoding geometries and toning is easier, spirit is using the languages of light which shift the 6th dimensional blueprint into a new template for your 5th dimensional Lightbody. Your body may change shape as the energy fields shift. You feel interconnected to all Being's everywhere and less connected to the opinions of others.
You release the desire for and the energy to sustain the 'game of separation and limitation' and feel truly free. The 9th level sees a mass descension of the Lightbody into physical form. As with the 3rd and 6th, this level sees a strong re-evaluation as we begin the final surrender to Spirit and we truly become the Divine instrument. Here Spirit determines our income, our work, other beings in our lives, everything.
This is the dissolution of the ego-self and while ecstatic, it can be most painful. Making the leap can be fearful even though we have evolved through eons of time to reach this point. We may go back and forth, clinging to old comfort zones before completely letting go - there is no turning back and all must be released. 9th level is surrender and then ecstasy; the letting go of the "I" - we realise that while free will is real it is also an illusion as it only there to guide us and to empower us to be One with Spirit.
Survival fears leave - focus in on the Now at one-at-ment. Though fears may surface, they seem unreal and are easily put aside.
We tend to disconnect from consensus reality and our choices and reality seem unreal to others.
From the 7th, 8th and 9th the inner light noticeably radiates out and by now you feel unbelievably grounded, connected, centred, filled with purpose and desiring only to serve. For a while you may slip between the 8th and 9th, from feeling complete at-one-ment to being ' a limited human being' again, this settles down by the end of the 9th level. You then continually feel connected and operate from your Christ level and your intention and motivation is always for the highest, although others, due to their own inner triggers and issues, may not always choose to see that.
The 9th is where we begin to hook up to our I AM.
Know that although our evolutionary process is rapidly accelerating, along with the new higher vibrational energies we have not created Heaven yet. So, thought you may be struggling and confused at this time, Know that your future holds the following in Your Heaven on Earth, maybe even before the final push. Just have Faith: I AM.
The last three levels unify all energy fields, all chakras are unified and you become totally connected to your I AM.
- you are one with Source consciousness and know all is possible. DNA is no longer 2 strand but 12 strand; teleportation, manifestation etc. are instantaneous. The Merkabah (another name for our Lightbody) has been built and allows you to pass through space, time and dimensions complete in your totality. It has its own consciousness to be directed by you.
THE 11th LEVEL
- all levels of the Lightbody have been constructed and activated and are connected to your physical body via 'spin points'. These light matrix's lie along the physical acupuncture meridians and are lines of light intersecting in beautiful geometries - a new 5th dimensional circulatory system of Light. Cellular regeneration has been accomplished.
Time is no longer linear but simultaneous - past, present and future co-exist - all exist in parallels. There is no separation and you will fully manifest your vision of Heaven on Earth and express the ecstasy of Spirit. In this 'frame' of conscious awareness many now access and create new types of Light based technologies, new community living, new systems of government and equitable food and resource distribution systems. All have received specialist training and skills to help create and manifest the New World - the 'Golden Age'.
THE 12th LEVEL
- the continuation of the Creation and implementation of the New World systems - hook up with other 12th level initiates who bring into existence new governments, new financial and educational systems, better system of food and resource allocation etc. as all will be redefined in the final stages of Earth's ascension so that all may exist in joy, equality, and harmony. By this time the planet and her inhabitants will have been 'rewoven' into Light to shine in their full glory as the final stages of this Divine Plan unfold.
The planet goes to Light, shifts out of this dimension and is brought into a multi-star system where everyone is a Lightbody and follows Spirit in total Mastery. All parallel realities are rewoven and absorbed back to Spirit and all have aligned their will to the Divine.
