perhaps one day there will be a sign for 'Ascension' like this?
In the bible, when Jesus went back to Heaven after the Resurrection, He 'Ascended'. When Mary, who did not die, but rose up to Heaven like her Son did that, it was called 'The Assumption'. It was 'Assumed' that she did not 'Ascend' by her own power but rather it was Jesus who helped her to rise up to Heaven.
As Reiki practitioners, we have experienced Attunement, the process I. Which a Reiki Master opens our energetic system to allow the Universal Light to flow through us and permit the healing of ourselves and our patients,clients, family members, friends, and pets. Cancer patients in pain feel a deep calm, peace, often falling asleep in a time in their lives where there otherwise can be pain and suffering. If you ever want to get an interesting group discussion going, ask your Reiki students about their 'cleanse'. A 'cleanse' is the clearing out of old energetic debris and patterns to make room for the Universal Light. I describe it as clearing the pipes from the gunk that lines it, or getting the air vents and ducts cleared of the dust and crud that collects in them over time. Cleanse symptoms can be physical (malaise, sleepiness, fuzzy thinking, cold-like symptoms, minor aches and pains), emotional (something you thought was resolved in the past coming up again, sadness, crying), and spiritual( questions about your belief system and relation with the church).
Although Ascension is a personal experience, since so many of us are going to go through it at the same time range (From what I understand, it is not all at once for everybody), why not be an Ascension Buddy to those who are in the Ascension process and have no idea what is happening to them? Information I have researched points to the Heart and its degree of openness as the deciding factor, not the amount of time spent in Spiritual preparation. Since Reiki can be a great help to others in the Transition from this life to the Other Side, might it not be useful to help others who are just 'waking up' to adjust?
For example, a loved one may complain to you about feeling tingling all over, being abnormally tired and sleepy, and having headaches when they are not a headache person--headaches are rare for them.
What you can do is recognize the symptoms of Ascension, making sure to double-check that there are no obvious signs of disease as well. Send them to a doctor if they are not well. But if it seems like Ascension to you, you can reassure them and share that you too have experienced something similar. The decision to educate on Ascension is up to you; I would myself answer honestly any questions asked of me as simply as possible. Things that can help are drinking lots of water, eating root vegetables, soaking in salt water, being in nature, spending time with animals, gardening, writing a journal, or reading things of a spiritual nature. Taking classes and being with those of a like mind are helpful for the more 'open' minded individuals as well.
Look out for your brothers and sisters. Reach out and let your caring spirit comfort them. There is no need to explain unless the person is ready to understand. Be cautious, as too much information can be overwhelming for them. People's belief systems are deeply personal to them. It is important to keep this in mind when reaching out to help others at this time.
If you would like to check a YouTube channel that exists on Ascension Symptoms, check out Ascension Pioneers with Polonia Simchak. She speaks English but is from Europe I think. It is fun and you may enjoy her work. Another excellent resource is Evita Ochel, on her YouTube Channel and website Evolvingbeings.com.
