This is an uncommon definition of ascension

“Conventional opinion is the ruin of our souls.”
– Rumi

If you're looking for an ascension definition in the strict Christian sense, this article may only make you angry and frustrated.

However, if you're a truth-seeker, curious about the mysteries of life or you're already dedicated to raising your consciousness: I've written this article for you.

I began to get curious about ascension while investigating 2012. I've done quite a bit of research and have gone down some sinkholes along the way, too. But there are a few ideas that (for me) rose to the top.

Here are my thoughts, written simply for beginners. But which may contain some new nuggets for seasoned seekers too! As always, continue to investigate the ascension definition and follow your intuition.

In the following, I use both ascension because it's a commonly used and understood term and a number of terms interchangeably.

My ascension definition findings for truth-seekers

The most common ascension definition refers to Christianity where Jesus Christ ascended to heaven after he resurrected. From my research, I do believe that Jesus ascended. However, the rigid Christian interpretation got it wrong.

Many in the new age movement also speak about ascension. Here, ascension is sometimes described as a lightning-bolt type event where those who hold higher vibrations shift into a higher dimension and a golden age.

Some refer to this shift as going from 3D to 4D, and others 3D to 5D, skipping 4D altogether. This distinction has been debated in the truth-seeking community, especially as it related to December 21, 2012. Personally, I don't believe that we skip into 5D - but that's another article.

The ascension definition that feels most right to me explains that ascension is not a miracle event that happened to only to one soul (Jesus) more than two thousand years ago. I believe we all have the same potential.

It's also not one mega spiritual event where a number of souls are instantly harvested into the fourth or fifth dimension.

What if Jesus did not want us to worship him?

What if Jesus knew about this energetic process and tried to put it into words? What if he was trying to teach us about our relationship to a powerful, universal source field that we're part of? What if he didn't want us to worship him, the man, but to recognize our own divinity and inner power?

The most plausible ascension definition I found refers to a gradual and natural energetic process, leading us back to source. In essence, we're re-connecting to our true selves by drawing down the higher dimensions into our lives and bodies.

And that this is the time that chooses whether or not to shift into 4D by how many of us actively raise our consciousness.

Please investigate further...

If some of these ideas resonate with you, please don't stop here. Continue to research. It's taken me hundreds of hours and years to feel comfortable enough to write about this topic. Here are two that have stood out for me (I've investigated dozens!!).

As you investigate, do not see one person as holding the entire truth. See the puzzle pieces, and then check in with yourself.

U.K.'s Simon Parkes has risen to my top-three, as of May, 2015. I've had a personal session with Simon and found him insightful, humble and kind. I like him because he sees the big picture, from politics and economics to inter-dimensional entities to ascension. You can watch videos of him being interviewed from his site. He is well worth your time.

Another favourite is David Wilcock's site Divine Cosmos. David is brilliant at taking many points of science and history, seeing new patterns and communicating simply. Read his free content, listen to his interviews or buy his books.

What does ascension mean (bottom line)?

Here's the bottom-line of my ascension definition.

Ascension is a drawing down of the energetic strands of DNA that we've been separated from, containing enhanced abilities such as intuition.

It's a process of re-connection with our higher selves and who we really are.

In this ascension definition, this re-connection isn’t just for specially appointed souls: it’s accessible to us all: but we have to want it. It’s also not that simple or that instant. But I believe that the soul Jesus knew this and came to earth to teach this idea – until he was silenced and his teachings were twisted.

So how can you ascend?

Yes (in time), everyone can experience enlightenment and ascension and re-connect with who they really are. But there is no short cut. The easiest way to ascend is to simply: be kind. Live with an open heart. Keep seeking truth. Think for yourself. Meet and respond to life with as much love as possible.

This ascension definition is known by many spiritual gurus around the world. Yet, there’s a reason why enlightened teachers don’t try to influence the masses. You see, the process of enlightenment and ascension cannot be taught or done for you (though others may act as catalysts for you, or provide inspiration).

Using this ascension definition, you must sincerely seek enlightenment for yourself. You must choose the ascension path (or raise your vibration, or draw down your DNA), using your own free will.

There's no scientific way to "measure" exactly where we are in the process. All we can do is choose to be conscious in each moment and adopt the qualities that are closer to love. Forgiveness over blame. Honouring another's free will, even if it's hard. And saying no to the part of life that you don't want.

I believe that part of becoming enlightened is letting go for the need for the absolute truth and be comfortable with paradox. The truth is, no one really knows and no one can prove any ascension definition. So always go back to your heart.

Everyone's different, and a true confession

Your path of enlightenment will look different than mine. It will look different than the path of those you love. Yes, this can be tough sometimes.

And now: a confession. Personally, I don’t like the word ascension. But I've written this article because so many people are using this word to search for it online. I prefer expansion or re-connection. For this most simply - is what we’re all here for.

Cool thing: the word you use or i use doesn't matter. The energy behind it does.

Are you experiencing ascension symptoms?

Your confusing emotional and physical symptoms may be because of the changes earth is going through now. Learn if you’re experiencing awakening symptoms and how to ease them by listening to my five-hour audio program “Making it” through The Shift. I created this program especially for seekers (Hint: you get my research sources too).

I hope my ascension definition inspires you to seek!
