What you refer to as "ascension" today is simply what traveling the spiritual path, in the past ages, has accomplished. We are moving into a new age, and so the course of our collective human evolution is taking us to more enlightened states of consciousness.
Just as with certain groups of monkeys who exhibit the same adaptation even though they live on different islands; we are connected by the collective consciousness and the quantum heart field, and we are collectively adapting and evolving into higher states of consciousness.
Some people are karmically situated to awaken early in dawning of the golden age. These people who are sensitively responding to the influx of energies are those who will go through the most dramatic transformations and anchor the higher light vibrations so that the collective evolution can progress.
Ascending into higher states of consciousness asks us to cooperate with the process of kundalini transformation, for indeed it is our innate spiritual intelligence that is being initiated to "wake up" in these times. And it is the kundalini energy inside of us that is facilitating the changes that can be quite uncomfortable, difficult, and even disturbing, if you do not know what is happening!
The best thing you can do is consult with a spiritual guide or spiritual teacher who will be able to give you direction that is specific to your experience. If you can, find a group of people who are dedicated to spiritual transformation and support each other. I am a such a guide, and I do provide spiritual counsel based on my experience and education traveling the path to healing and mystical states of awareness. Of course, I would be happy to support you.
In addition, wonderful assistance in integrating these higher frequencies can be found in practicing the wisdom set forth in all of the ancient paths that lead to enlightenment. Tantra, Buddhism, Taoism, Shamanism, Sufism and Zen are a few of these paths. Throughout history, there have been people consciously seeking the kind of changes that the high energies of "ascension" are effortlessly facilitating. All of these wisdom systems contain valuable information about living a healthy live in spiritual alignment.
Joseph Campbell's "Hero with a Thousand Faces" is a work which outlines the Hero's Journey, which is essentially a guide to undergoing kundalini transformation.
Recognize what is happening, and accept your important role as a leader in ushering in the new age. Commit to your own transformation and devote yourself to getting into spiritual enlightenment. Discover your dharma, move in the direction of your happiness. Adopt a spiritual path and know that whatever discomfort you are experiencing is part of the process. Surrender to it!
I recommend engaging in energy healing and energy cultivation techniques, above all to support your integration. Becoming attuned to Reiki is very accessible in most areas and will transform your energy body to hold higher frequencies of energy. The most powerful energy technique I know is Kundalini Activation Process, which rapidly opens and transforms your energy body as well as accelerates emotional processing in a graceful and complete way. If you are in the Los Angeles area, I offer this work.
It is also important to purify your diet and your life, avoid toxins both from food and drink and from consuming violent entertainment. If your body and mind are weighted by toxins, the energy is only going to be working harder to purge more. Cooperate with the purifying effects of this ascension energy and know that with every influx of light energy you are helping the entire human race to move into a time of more peace, prosperity, connection and harmony.
Congratulations, and enjoy the ride!
