Ascension Symptoms

rainbow line rainbow line

Some of these evolutionary Ascension symptoms are ones I’ve lived with for many years now and have gotten familiar with how they cycle in and out, year after year, becoming less intense the more I transmuted and released. As I’ve said elsewhere over the past few years, your mileage may vary, because we each are dealing with and transmuting slightly different emotional energies, karmic, duality energies, past-life energies, and varying degrees of negative lower frequency energies across time on earth. Some of us have been processing not only our own inner emotional energetic stuff and junk from this life, but from ALL of them, plus doing transformational bloodline family work, and planetary clearing of stuck or residual negative energies created by people across time on this planet. That is what Forerunners/Starseeds/Lightworkers/LightWarriors/PathPavers/Wayshowers etc. do and much more.


  • ascension flu— flu-like body aches and pains but you don’t get “sick” like with typical physical flu
  • abnormal heat and/or cold in certain body parts, severe heat in bottoms of feet, cold solar plexus etc
  • hot flashes/kundalini risings repeatedly for both sexes, intense repeated sweating from them
  • unusual headaches and pressures that just don’t go away until they are done doing what they’re doing
  • physical vision changes – blurring, seeing non-physical mist or fog, seeing new colors, lights, heat mirages, warps, vortex swirls etc.
  • physical hearing changes – inner ear clicking, high-pitched ringing, pressure like when you change altitude, hearing non-physical voices and strange sounds
  • low-grade fever, chills, body and bone aches and pains, exhaustion when there’s heavy solar and/or cosmic energies
  • sudden food and chemical sensitivities that make it nearly impossible to eat a lot of foods or go much of anywhere
  • heartburn, acid re-flux, esophageal spasms and sensitivities due to evolving corresponding Chakras in those areas
  • insomnia and/or only being able to sleep for an hour or two and waking up repeatedly throughout the night
  • drastically less dreaming (because you’re dealing with issues/energies 24/7/365, we’re transmuting while awake too)
  • sudden diarrhea, usually after you’ve been through a hard phase of transmuting lower energies and then shifting into a higher state
  • sudden nausea or “morning sickness” for both sexes
  • weird food cravings, repeated high protein cravings due to increased transmuting of energies, need for a lot of food fuel
  • highly amplified sense of smell, smelling strange smells for days, weeks or months such as burning incense or smoke
  • amplified static electric charge in physical body, getting zapped a lot more than usual, even in rain and high humidity
  • sense that your bones are not as dense and solid as they were in lower 3D, they now feel more like cartilage that can bend etc.
  • profound exhaustion, feeling profound exhaustion and physical pains and aches after having been out in the lower world for a couple of hours, feel better once you return to your higher vibrating home/land/space etc.
  • internal electrical-like inner body vibrations or buzzing caused by the Body Rewiring Process
  • super sensitivity to sounds, light, sunlight, even movement, dizziness, sense of spinning or tipping over or dropping through the floor


  • crying over simple things that profoundly move you, crying over the stupidity, crying because you feel SO much (this is 5D HighHeart Consciousness beginning)
  • rage and deep anger over the stupidity, anger/rage/frustration over everything and everyone still in a lower energy and state of awareness. They’re literally too painful physically and emotionally to be around or to endure now
  • sudden and total intolerance of anything, anyone, any system, religion, government, foods, belief systems etc. Intolerance of anything vibrating lower than you currently are
  • sense of being very alone and on your own with no one else around you who understands what’s really happening to reality and you
  • needing to be alone and isolated from other people
  • ultra-sensitive emotionally – like puberty/pregnancy/menopause all happening at the same time
  • emotionally knowing and feeling things in other people that you never could perceive prior
  • family issues and emotions and energies that must be dealt with within yourself and your bodies
  • total emotional disconnect with things and people you used to love and enjoy very much
  • feeling like you are changing so profoundly that you’re actually dying (you are and it’s part of this process)


  • sudden loss of mental focus and ability to concentrate
  • sudden inability to read books due to inability to focus, concentrate, or even comprehend what you’re trying to read
  • forgetting the names of common everyday things, objects, places, people etc. – like “milk”, “hammer”, “orange” etc.
  • forgetting your own name and/or sense of old familiar “you” or “self”
  • having to triple check things because you can’t remember if you actually did them or just thought about doing it
  • losing track of time, losing track of yourself within time, suddenly not knowing what time of the year it is or even what year it is
  • thinking and physically doing things becomes very blurred to your awareness, feeling disconnected from things like never before
  • disconnect with the ego self that was mentally multitasking constantly, inability to focus so you finally relax and unfocus which allows you to evolve, expand


  • seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling, sensing nonphysical beings both positive and negative, also perceiving higher frequency energies and lights
  • hearing nonphysical voices call your name
  • seeing different colored lights, balls, points of brilliant light flash and roll around in your house and/or outside
  • seeing solid 3D objects (like walls etc.) suddenly look like a heat mirage, sparkle, shimmer with brilliant light and appear transparent
  • seeing, hearing, and even telepathy with both positive and negative beings, entities, perceiving areas of highly condensed negative energy
  • negative psychic attacks by lower vibrating living humans and/or negative non-physical beings/entities etc. (Deal with it and move on. It’s someones unresolved negative shit looking for a new place to live; transmute it, release it all and move on quickly)
  • working through Duality, repeated encounters with polarized energies, polarized consciousness, people and beings
  • seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling, sensing higher positive non-physical Beings, Guides, ETs, Angelics, physically incarnate Starseeds, Forerunners, Lightwarriors, Lightworkers
  • increasing conscious connection and awareness with your Higher Self – spherical or triality consciousness instead of old lower 3D Duality and linear consciousness
  • increasing but HIGHER empathy, telepathy, clairvoyance, greater and greater unity within your self and with other people that are vibrating at or near the same frequency and state of ascension that you are, 5D awareness or HighHeart consciousness
  • coming under negative psychic attacks occasionally from both physical humans and nonphysical beings/entities, thankfully decreasing in potency over the months and years
  • stages of dreamless sleeping, stages of numerous unpleasant nightmares each night for weeks at a time. This usually happens when we’re making yet another shift and need to process some more stuff and energies within ourselves.

  1. “…2.From reading about the Dec 2012 energy changes, etc…people talk about the world as we know it, will divide into 2 worlds…let us say Planets A and B…is this literal or figurative…Planet A being the ascended enlightened group and B remaining in the physical muck, etc…what is your thought on this…..or do we live together but separately so to speak…

    Joanne S.,

    Amazingly, because I rarely remember the titles of my old articles 🙄 , I was able to find this one where I talked a bit about the three primary Earth worlds being born out of this Ascension Process. (link below)

    No, this is not figurative at all but indeed literal. We’re already starting to see the new Earth world that still has duality but is minus all the Negatives or Team Dark as I call all of them in it. This new duality world with zero Negativity/Team Dark in it will seem like “heaven on earth” after what we’ve all lived in and through for thousands of years! In my opinion, the majority of currently incarnate humanity will automatically find themselves in this still dual Earth world but minus the evil, horrors, greed and insanity (and Team Dark in all of its forms) that have been our lives and “reality” on Earth prior to the Ascension Process. It will be wonderful…

    There will be a smaller number of currently incarnate humans who will, in my opinion, be able to embody the tremendous Cosmic Galactic Center — and who knows what else — energetic alignments or conjunctions and massive energy downloads that will begin around 12-12-12 through 12-21-12 basically. Those people will ascend to a different Earth-like world for however long they desire to be there. There’s much more to this than just this little blurb. One of those things is that this group of people will be able to go to the still dual world if they want to help/teach/guide etc. those people living in that frequency. They will be the new “Guides” and “Spiritual Teachers” etc. in that world. There’s much more but hopefully this gives you a better sense of what’s coming.

    And then there’s the currently incarnate humans who will not be ascending but descending into greater density and horrors and negativity. This is not because they’ve done anything “wrong”, but because that’s what they are focused on and want to experience… from their Higher Self level I mean. And there are some people who enjoy the negativity, fear, control over others, warring, violence etc. and so there will be a place for them to experience that…until they figure out that something else might be better. 😉 But each of these Earth-like worlds will NOT be connected or interact with each other. Each will be separated by the very different levels of frequency that they are, so there will be zero cross-contaminating or having to endure souls who are still desiring to learn about violence and fear etc.


  2. Yes…I feel as if I won’t be sitting at my desk after the 21st and if I am, did I miss the first boat 🙂 ? I know I am here to help others that want to be helped, but if they are not quite ready, will I be staying to help them or will I be able to move up and still help them if they are not quite ready. I guess that is my question about levels…if this makes any sense

  3. Find a lightworker, reiki master teacher or someone with high vibrational energies to take out what is within you…it does not belong to you ❤

  4. “Find a lightworker, reiki master teacher or someone with high vibrational energies to take out what is within you…it does not belong to you <3"


    You’re right, a lot of the negative residual energetic stuff does not belong to me. However, this is what Starseeds/Lightworkers do because they’re literally hardwired to do it; they transmute residual lower frequency dense negative energies for humanity so as to make it easier for them to evolve/ascend now. They do many other things besides this, but this is primarily what they do and why.

    I realize that a lot of people think, belief and perceive the way that you do as indicated by what you’ve said. But, individuals won’t gain the literal alchemical personal inner alterations and soul experiences they incarnated now to do and experience if they constantly look to people outside themselves to “fix”, or to “heal”, or to “save”, or to “rescue” them. This type of thinking/awareness/consciousness was intentionally designed by Team Dark to prevent humanity from taking individual responsibility for themselves and work to extricate themselves from the mind controlled cesspool that this Earth has been for a very long time.

    Lightworkers/Starseed Lightworkers transmute these lower negative energies which has helped more Light to enter this dimension/world/reality which further aids the rest of humanity to live through the Ascension Process. Lightworkers have indeed already transmuted and cleared (returned to a higher state of non-duality or “triality” or neutral “unity”) tons of residual human and Team Dark negativity, but, humanity still must live through the aches and pains of at least some of the Ascension symptoms because they are the actual transformational event itself! Said another way, if it hurts, then that means one is living the Alchemical Ascension Process and that is a very, very positive thing!

    It’s because of this fact that you and the many others who’ve contacted me over the years might want to rethink your beliefs about how to stop living the Ascension Process, and how to stop or end the physical pains it causes. No one but Source/God is providing you/me/all of us with this massive energetic assistance to ascend/evolve now…but anyone can choose to ignore this rare gift if they want. Do it now or do it much later but we all will do it eventually. 🙂


  5. I apologize if this has been answered above, but is it common to experience the physical, emotional and mental symptoms of ascension before experiencing the psychic ones? I seem to be experiencing the first three categories but not yet the psychic one… how quickly does this happen? Does it all come at once and very intensely or are there signs that precede the actual ascension experience?

  6. “…it common to experience the physical, emotional and mental symptoms of ascension before experiencing the psychic ones? I seem to be experiencing the first three categories but not yet the psychic one…”


    If one was not psychically aware or sensitive prior to the start of one’s Ascension Process, then they will most likely experience the physical, mental and emotional symptoms first. But, because non-psychic people have been/are living and being altered, evolved by the Alchemical Ascension Process itself, they too are becoming increasingly consciously aware of MORE of this reality and dimension and also other dimensions as well. Non-psychic or non-clairvoyant (etc.) people are and have been clairvoyantly seeing non-physical things, beings, energies. They’ve also been clairaudiently hearing non-physical sounds coming from other dimensions, other-dimensional beings etc. and on and on. This is perfectly “normal” for what the Ascension Process is naturally doing to humanity — which is evolving them on all levels and in all of their different Energy Bodies and Multidimensional Consciousness.

    Some people will recognize the “psychic” anomalies more readily than other people. I’ve physically watched strangers in shopping stores have partial telepathic conversations with each other and not even consciously realize it! I’ve been observing the “regular folk” — meaning the non-psychic masses — since 1999 and the changes I’ve seen and hear and felt are truly, truly astonishing and wonderful beyond explanation to me! ♥ ♥ ♥ Humanity is waking up and, many unknowingly, simply evolving into more expanded consciousness and awareness and all that naturally goes with that. What a thing to witness in humanity after so much darkness, mind control and unawareness of so much that’s always existed all around them/us. 🙂

    Gawd, did I even answer your question or did I go off into Denise land with this reply? 😆 I hope I covered what you were questioning and if not, please feel free to try me again. 😀


  7. My god! I am experiencing like almost everything on this list, I stumbled across this while trying to research flu symptoms, because ive felt the onset of a flu for a while, but no sickness, and major mood swings and compassion out of no where, also ive had morning sickness, and physical changes occurring, I’ve been looking and feeling more feminine, its weird how almost everything on here matched my symptoms!

    Although I am curious about two things… 1: I’ve been getting depersonalization/ derealization like symptoms where I feel almost dream like, and in that point I feel fear for like a min, until i sit and relax, then suddenly everything just makes sense, also in this time, physical dimensions seem to change/ alter where it seems like there is more depth to objects, or almost like things just seem to change physically… is that normal? and 2: lately I’ve been going through phases of abnormal hunger where its hard to tell if im nauseous or hungry… is that part of the ascension process too? Sorry if any of this was answered above, just curious.

  8. Eden,

    ” 1: I’ve been getting depersonalization/ derealization like symptoms where I feel almost dream like, and in that point I feel fear for like a min, until i sit and relax, then suddenly everything just makes sense, also in this time, physical dimensions seem to change/ alter where it seems like there is more depth to objects, or almost like things just seem to change physically… is that normal?”

    Yes, everything you’ve described so well is EXACTLY what it feels like as we begin expanding, evolving/ascending beyond our old familiar linear left-brained intellect and 3D ego self. The fear and/or panic is completely normal because our old 3D ego does NOT want to “die” or change in any way. Period. I found this quote recently by Carl Gustav Jung that says it all about the tenacity of our 3D egos to remain in control of everything.

    “There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”

    The reason what you’re seeing looks like it’s changing in different ways is because your consciousness is changing. There’s a lot more of this to come so be prepared to see, hear, smell, feel, and know much, much more. 🙂

    Your second question:

    “2: lately I’ve been going through phases of abnormal hunger where its hard to tell if im nauseous or hungry… is that part of the ascension process too?”

    Yes, these bouts of intense hunger and for more high protein foods is normal during the Ascension Process. The reason for the need for drinking extra water and eating more foods and especially high protein foods is because your body is working very, very hard transmuting layers and layers and layer of density, and also duality, emotional wounds, unresolved emotional issues which are still energetically stuck in your/our bodies but absolutely MUST and are energetically transmuted so that the evolutionary (ascension) process can proceed very quickly now…which it is. So, because of this, eat what and when you need to and forget about the old 3D rules and beliefs about foods. Your body will crave what it needs during those really intense phases of Alchemical Ascension Process transmuting so just eat what you’re feeling the need to. I ate more peanut butter and pot roasts during the most intense years of my transmuting than I’ve eaten in my entire life! Today, I can hardly eat anything…which is also normal at this point. 😉

    Hang in there and know that you are indeed living the Ascension Process and very rapidly evolving into new and higher frequency ranges of being and consciousness. Good stuff! 😀

  9. This checklist has been really helpful for me. For the last year my anxiety has increased and I have an internal buzzing feeling which also makes me feel anxious, I feel like the back of my head is heavy. I’ve also seen flashes of ice blue lights since I was a kid.

    In the last year I experienced a layoff, foreclosure and health crisis with a close family member. I feel less stable emotionally and have a fear of falling or collapsing in public. When my twins were born 3 years ago I required a stay in the ICU for 4 days while my newborns were at home. Since then I have had a difficult time trusting my body. Do my symptoms sound like I am in the ascension process? Thanks for your help.
