Ascension Symptoms

Am I sick or am I just integrating into my True Self?

Why do symptoms occur?

A shift from 3rd dimensional existence to 5th dimensional existence – shifting from density to light.

As the frequency of Universal energies increase at a collective level, our individual energy frequencies increase too. Currently the Earth is ascending at a rapid speed, shifting us from the density of the 3rd dimension into the lightness of the 5th dimension. For us as individuals this involves dense (low vibrational) energy clearing out at all levels – emotional, mental, spiritual and physical.

As mentioned in the Ascension article, this process is for the most part uncomfortable especially if we are unwilling to let go of old patterns, paradigms and ways of living. If we are unwilling to accept and integrate change ourselves through spiritual practices we subconsciously resist the ascension process. Resistance makes the light body activation, growth and integration process unnecessarily slower, more painful and for some even torturous.

Symptoms of Ascension

As density dissolves and our light body grows we experience all types of symptoms in our physical body as it integrates more light. Our DNA shifts creating space for light codes and naturally our physical body undergoes various changes as it integrates this spiritually evolutional process.

Ascension symptoms occur at various levels because we harbour dense (low vibrational) energy at emotional, mental, spiritual and physical levels. So when Universal and thus individual energy is shifting we inevitably experience it emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically. Essentially our physical body is upgrading to holding more of, and being more of the light.

Ascension is a spiritual evolutionary process with no end-date. Therefore these symptoms can be and will be experienced on and off over extended time periods.

Physical Symptoms

  • Ascension Flu/Cold
    Symptoms are similar if not identical to a real flu but the cause is never viral. This can last from a week to two weeks for some even longer depending on how much dense energy is being challenged and pushed to release.
    Frequently symptoms of cold/flu can also appear and disappear just as quickly without escalating into full sickness.
  • Eating/Stomach
    Changes in diet, appetite and eating habits occur. Sudden cravings and aversions to specific foods occur. Sudden intolerances/allergies to certain foods/products and chemical sensitivities can arise. Unexplainable weight loss/gain is also common.
    Stomach and digestive issues are common such as IBS, gastro-intestinal issues, loss of appetite, periods of unexplained nausea.
  • Head:
    frequent headaches, head pressure, unusual sensations in the crown chakra area such as warmth, tingling, pinpricks and pulsating energy. Dizziness/lightheadedness is not uncommon.
  • Ears:
    Earaches. Popping and experiencing air pressure changes. General changes in hearing/sound sensitivity. Hearing ringing/buzzing/ frequency sounds
  • Eyes/Vision:
    perception changes are common, catching glimpses of shadows/mist/smoke, flashes of light, sparkles, colours and swirling forms of energy. Seeing halos of light around people/animals/objects, sensitivity to bright light
  • Chakras:
    feeling intense/unusual vibrations, experiencing pulsating or rushing waves of energy, tingling sensations, pressure throughout the body or in specific areas (chakra centres).

  • Others:
  • Issues with voice/speech
  • Back pains (especially mid-lower section)
  • Joint pains, shoulders and knees
  • Cramps & spasms
  • Motion sickness & intense nausea
  • Changes in hair & nail texture, both may grow faster than normal
  • Changes in sleep patterns; sudden onset of exhaustion & fatigue, restless interrupted sleep, insomnia, vivid & unusual dreams or lucid dreams. A need for less/more sleep, repeated waking up in the middle of the night around 3am.
  • Increase in daydreaming, fantasy, flashes of insights and visions. Overall increased imagination & creativity
  • Random& intense heat flashes and/or cold flashes
  • Clumsiness, lack of coordination, feeling ungrounded, bumping into or dropping objects more often

Mental Symptoms

  • unexplainable nervousness/anxiety that comes and goes spontaneously for no apparent reason
  • bursts of increased energy/inspiration, feeling hyper-active frantic energy – accelerated mental energy
  • panic attacks
  • racing/scattered thoughts
  • periods of intense frustration, anger/rage
  • being short-tempered or easily agitated
  • impatience
  • increased “self talk” or inner dialogue
  • feeling lost or a sudden loss of our old ‘identity’ – a calling to find our True Self
  • a sense of urgency like we are running our of time or that ‘something is about to happen’
  • lack of mental focus/ability to concentrate/comprehend linear information
  • feeling brain fog, confusion, forgetting things more often

Emotional Symptoms

Many of us are releasing heavy toxic emotions through anger. If so we are also suffering from shifts of anxiety and manic disorder. If anger and anxiety arise without a conscious reason or our emotional responses are exaggerated – we are likely experiencing ascension energies.

  • heated arguments/confrontations
  • crying a lot
  • manic behaviour
  • the need to release emotions through creative expression, venting, crying, singing, dancing or other physical activities
  • feelings uncertainty
  • feeling lost/confused
  • emotions from past experiences/relationships/traumas arise

Spiritual Symptoms

  • feeling we have a Divine purpose on the planet and that we are on a special ‘mission’
  • profound feeling of love, peace, understanding and interconnectedness with All things.
  • increased psychic awareness and sensitivity, clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and intuition.
  • Experiencing sudden inspirations/Divine revelations, rushes of energy and flashes of deep insight
  • Chakra activations & activity
  • strong pull to spend time in nature. We feel more connected to it.
  • Although externally we remain looking the same, on the inside we feel something has changed as though the real version of ourselves is emerging and integrating into our persona.


Sometimes ascension is not the only cause of the physical symptoms listed. It is up to us to use our discernment and intuition in how we react to whatever symptoms we are experiencing. If there is no medical reasoning or explanation behind symptoms ascension is the cause. However, if you feel worried about your symptoms it is best to get medical advice. If medically there is nothing wrong and your symptoms are overwhelming, it is always helpful to reach out to a spiritual advisor/healer.
