World in Transition
From 3D to 5D

The world is in transition from 3D to 5D.


Everywhere we look today, we see a world in transition. It can seem as if global events are totally out of control, the “bad guys” are winning, and that there’s no hope for humanity. The whole idea of the world shifting from 3D to 5D can really feel like an illusion.

This viewpoint is totally understandable. Even when following the alternative news on the internet, rather than simply watching the mainstream news (that always seems to focus on the negative and simply doesn’t report all the news for whatever reason), it can seem as if humanity is finally going to extinguish itself through one disastrous event or another.… Read more ...

Ascension Energies Amping Up

Ascension energies are amping up.It seems for many of us lately that the Ascension process is gaining in both intensity and speed. Especially since the beginning of 2016, there have definitely been new Ascension energies flooding in, giving us an experience of transitioning that is more pronounced than before.

And the energies have a different flavor from what we’ve experienced in the last few years. They’re hard to describe. In one way, there seems to be a firmer push with them. We’re being compelled to move forward somewhat faster now, whether we feel ready to or not.

There’s also a demand to be ever-more vigilant about what we think and do and to see what we are creating for ourselves.… Read more ...

Paradoxical Ascension Symptoms
Am I Going Crazy?

Ascension Symptoms can be paradoxical.

As we move ever-more deeply into the Ascension process that is unfolding everywhere now, many of us are at times experiencing increasingly intense Ascension symptoms.

Some people I know are having serious physical symptoms, exacerbated symptoms they’ve either chronically had or those they’ve had in the past but thought they’d already healed from.

Others are experiencing a lot of emotionally-charged situations—again in a heightened form and also with a feeling that they’re in a repeat experience of something they went through in the past. Fear, anger, emptiness and despair waft in and out, causing a puzzling disruption in their lives.

Releasing 3D “Baggage”

It can be confusing and even frightening to be having these experiences if we don’t understand what’s going on.… Read more ...

Do You Have a Fear of Awakening?

Many people have a fear of awakening.The following is an excerpt from my recent book, Ascension: Embracing the Transformation. It addresses an inexplicable fear some of us are encountering at times on our path of Ascension—a fear that something frightening or unpleasant might happen if we continue to fully awaken to who we are.

Fear of Awakening

Consciously, of course, we all want to fully awaken to who we truly are. However, we may have unconscious fears about this happening.

For instance, we may fear our own awakening because of how it might impact our relationships and our comfort around other people. Marianne Williamson speaks eloquently about this particular fear:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.… Read more ...

Ascension “Clean-Out”

The following is an excerpt from my recent book, Ascension: Embracing the Transformation. It addresses an aspect of the Ascension process many of us seem to be experiencing recently and can be rather discouraging—something I call Ascension “Clean-Out”.

Ascension "Clean-Out" is common at this time.One Challenge after Another

In reflecting on my own experience and observing others I know, I see that we are all going through periods of what I can only call “Ascension Clean-Out”. Sometimes these periods last weeks, months—maybe even years for some—in which we meet one challenge after another and need to constantly focus on releasing old patterns, beliefs and emotions.

In a way, these periods of clean-out are no different from what any of us has experienced in the past; there have always been times in life when we’ve gone through difficult passages.… Read more ...

Ascension is an Adventure

Ascension is an adventure

Many of us who have been consciously experiencing the Ascension process for the last few years might hesitate at this point to call our journey to the Fifth Dimension an “adventure”. If we were initially excited about it a few years back, by now the process itself has perhaps rubbed some of the sheen off our enthusiasm.

Sure, there have been some high points, some expansive awakenings, realizations, and huge growth. But at times there has also been a great deal of loss and challenge. And there have been periods of time in which it feels as if nothing at all is happening, that nothing much has changed.… Read more ...

 Shifting to 5D Relationships

If you are deep into the Ascension process at this point, you are probably realizing that one of the areas of your life that is undergoing a “dimensional remodel” is that of your relationships with other people. This can be a challenging process.

Relationship patterns are shifting dramatically for many of us. We are being compelled to take a good look at our relationships currently in our lives and seeing what may no longer be resonating with the higher vibrations we are now embracing.

            Looking at Our Old 3D Relationship Patterns

Many of us are finding that the people we’ve related to for much of our lives are people with whom we have little in common anymore.… Read more ...

Ascension Symptoms—or Psychic Attacks?

Ascension symptoms and psychic attacks can feel the same.Note: I am posting this blog with a great deal of reluctance and would not post it at all, except for the persistent urging of my inner guidance to do so. The whole notion of psychic attack is such a negative one, and I generally hesitate to focus on negative subjects.

Yet I keep hearing that this subject is important to address during these times of Ascension when more and more of us are awakening and raising our vibrations. We need to be aware of the existence of psychic attacks, as we may be increasingly vulnerable to experiencing them—especially those of us who are Ascension lightworkers.Read more ...

Letting Go of 3D Habit Patterns

Operating with 3D HabitsWhen we look at what’s going on in the world, it can sure seem as if we’re all still in the Third Dimension. War, injustice, and greed still seem to reign.

And, at least occasionally, it may feel as if we are still in 3D, as well. Although we are well aware of the Shift taking place within and around us, our old ways of operating may still feel like they’re in place. We can still fall into fear, anger and depression at times.

The truth is we are no longer living in 3D reality; that reality closed off on the earth back in December 2012.… Read more ...

Exhaustion, Sleep, and More Exhaustion

Ascension can be exhausting.

Exhaustion. Just about everyone I’ve spoken to in the last couple of weeks has reported an unusual amount of exhaustion. I myself can barely drag myself from my bed to my chair most days.

For some, of course, actual illness may be responsible. And, if so, then it’s important to check it out. I also imagine astrologers could tell us about something in the skies that might explain it. And perhaps just plain aging in some cases may have something to do with it.

But I’m not convinced that this ongoing and debilitating exhaustion—and often a need to sleep more than usual—that many are experiencing can just be explained away by the usual reasons.… Read more ...

The Disappearing Self

The third-dimensional self is disappearing.It can get really weird to be part-way through the Ascension process. Aspects of your personality self are falling away. New aspects are emerging, but you may not relate to them yet. And they don’t fit comfortably with the other parts that are in the process of disappearing.

Your life may be shifting dramatically, as well—relationships, your work, your health. It can all be very disorienting. You can feel fractured and unintegrated.

The only way to make sense of these experiences is to understand that part of you is living in a fourth-dimensional reality, with some lingering third-dimensional habit patterns—and part of you is now living in fifth-dimensional reality.… Read more ...

Recognizing Fifth Dimensional Consciousness

ascension bubble  Most of us on a conscious path of Ascension have experienced moments—or even expanded periods of time—of what we might call fifth dimensional consciousness in our daily lives.

These are times in which we have felt ourselves living in a state that is free of all third dimensional concerns, emotions, and limitations. Profound peace, joy and freedom can fill us, radiating a sense of bliss throughout our entire being.

But for most of us, these experiences eventually seem to fade. And it can be easy to fall into depression or even despair when this happens. We can feel a deep sense of loss and wonder what we did wrong to lose these experiences.… Read more ...

Are You Suffering from Ascension Blues?

 Ascension blues are no fun.So here we are in January 2015. On the one hand, we can say “Good God, how did this happen—it’s 2015 already?!”

And on the other hand—in remembering all the excitement back in December of 2012—we might say, “Two whole years have passed now—and this is all that’s happened?!”

Some are asking “Why hasn’t disclosure happened yet? I thought the galactics were going to finally show themselves publicly.” Or “Why is there still fighting and conflict in the world—where is the peace and harmony that was going to happen?”

Still others who’ve been waiting fervently for the Reval or the Global ReSet to happen are likely feeling utterly discouraged at this point, after all the hype about its imminent arrival at any moment for the last two years.… Read more ...

Take Charge—or Go with the Flow?
Manifestation or Trust?

 Over the years, I have grappled with the question of which approach to life holds the higher spiritual truth: Taking charge and attempting to manifest what will make me happy and positive about my life—or learning to trust, let go, and go with the flow?

There’s always seemed to be wisdom in both these approaches. And yet, how to reconcile their seemingly opposite teachings?

A number of years ago, I came to a place on my spiritual path when the process of manifestation really caught my attention. Understanding the basic principle of “like attracts like”, I studied and practiced a number of different ways to create what I wanted in my life and ended up becoming quite proficient in doing this.… Read more ...

Learning to Ride the Ascension Energies

solar flare


This last month has been one of great intensity for many of us—physically, emotionally and mentally. No surprise, I guess, considering the numerous powerful solar flares occurring, along with two eclipses and who knows what-all else is happening in the skies.

As always, I’ve been aware that all of the challenges happening during these times have been designed to clear out old patterns not in alignment with the new Ascension energies currently flooding the Earth. And knowing this has helped.


Pushed and Shoved and Stretched

But what a ride it’s been! Perhaps more than ever before, I have felt pushed and shoved by the Ascension energies—ever forward, feeling compelled to take the next challenging step required, without even a brief opportunity to gather and collect myself from the last tumble.… Read more ...

Ascension Lightworkers Have a Specific Task

Ascension lightworkers have a specific task.I used to assume that everyone on a conscious spiritual path was here on the planet at this time with a specific mission to assist humanity and the Earth through the Shift into the Fifth Dimension. I have realized this is apparently not so.

Have you noticed that some spiritually-focused people you know light up immediately when you begin speaking about the Shift occurring on the planet—and some don’t?

Some people are right there with you, excited about the planetary transition into the Fifth Dimension (or at least are interested in learning about it). And some people, although very committed to their own awakening and might generally consider themselves “Lightworkers”, simply don’t relate to it very much.… Read more ...

Are You Experiencing Ascension Symptoms?

Ascension symptoms are common.If you’ve been feeling increasingly strange lately, it may be Ascension symptoms you’re experiencing. As time goes on, the powerful streaming of Light that’s flooding the planet is affecting us more and more on all levels. The Shift is now in full swing.

Many people aren’t aware of what’s causing their unusual symptoms and are feeling alone and lost as they traverse the unfamiliar territory we’re all now moving through as we awaken to the Fifth Dimension. It can be helpful to understand the context of the Ascension process and to realize there’s a reason for the sometimes disconcerting experiences many of us are having.… Read more ...

Learning Trust
On Your Journey into the Fifth Dimension


The following is an excerpt from my new book, Awakening to the Fifth Dimension, describing an important aspect of the Ascension process many of us are now experiencing: Trust.


 Ascension demands learning to trust.If you learn nothing else on your journey into the Fifth Dimension, it’s going to be trust. In particular, trust of the Unknown…trust that you’re being guided, no matter how alone you may feel…trust that whatever is happening to you is absolutely right for you–as unsettling and unfamiliar as it may be at times.

Over time, you will see that you are traveling on the “road less traveled”.… Read more ...

Are Fifth-Dimensional Energies Healing Our Bodies?

 Healing energies from the Fifth Dimension are streaming onto the planet.Over the years, I have heard from a number of both inner and outer sources that many of us will be taking our physical bodies with us to the Fifth Dimension when we ascend.

And that, before this occurs, our bodies will begin healing themselves of all disease and imbalances in the process of transforming from carbon-based forms to crystalline-based ones so they can ascend with us.

As incredible or unlikely as this might sound, this notion has always rung true for me. I have somehow known on a deep intuitive level that this would inevitably start happening for people.

However, it was never clear to me that it might happen for ME.… Read more ...

Detachment & Withdrawal: Are these Ascension Symptoms?


The following is an excerpt about Ascension Symptoms from my new book, Awakening to the Fifth Dimension:

 As you shift out of third-dimensional consciousness, another experience you may encounter is a sense of detachment toward almost everything in your life. In one way this can feel good—it’s an experience of more distance from old patterns or issues that used to trigger you. And a sense of calm, as you view your life from a higher perspective.

Lack of Interest in Your Life

But, in another way, the detachment may be disconcerting or disorienting. For instance, you may be experiencing a growing lack of interest in your life, a sense of withdrawal from it.… Read more ...
