I lived in Brookline during the time of last summer’s August eclipse. There was a strange energy from my first few days there- I don’t know why. The more I thought about it, the more I think that perhaps it wasn’t where I was, but what the energy in the air was at the time. Now that the cycle has ended with the New Moon in Aquarius and the February 15th Solar Eclipse, I’m feeling brand new. Today I’m back in Brookline with my friend Jess, coming full circle.
What a powerful time of transformation 2017 was. It was a year of reflection, cord cutting, self-awareness, and spiritual growth. As a whole, our society seems to be “waking up” quicker and quicker; I’ve had many people come into my life these past couple of months who have also felt “the shift” of consciousness. It’s been awesome to align with others who are on the same path.
Letting go and surrendering is never easy, but neither is the ascension process. Just in the nick of time, a video by fellow Michigander and spiritual guide, Victor Oddo, popped up on my YouTube feed. Inspired by his message, I decided to write an overview of my experience with his term “Ascension Upgrade.” It’s a time where you will experience major life shifts, and although sometimes uncomfortable, an Ascension Upgrade paves the way for a deeper spiritual connection.
Do you sometimes feel like there is nothing going on? Although you’re spiritually connected and have bursts of creative energy, it doesn’t feel like anything is happening. This could go on for a period of time- but it’s usually because there is something big on the horizon. Thanks to this last New Moon, we’re entering a new phase where the fruits of our labor are coming to fruition. The seeds we planted back in August during the eclipse are now starting to grow in coming weeks- so get ready!
After your stagnant period, there’s a shift and expansion of consciousness. Have you suddenly experienced a spike of creativity? Do you feel like you’re receiving ideas left and right? This phase of the ascension process is both exciting and fast-paced; this is a time where you’ll fully understand that you’re co-creating with the Universe, not just getting ideas out of the blue. Pay attention to your dreams and thoughts- your thoughts become your reality!
Are your diet habits changing? Interestingly enough, I’ve noticed I am eating less and less and getting full quicker. Sometimes meat grosses me out, too. Although I’m not a vegan, I eat less meat and more organic fruits and vegetables than I used to. Everything is energy– including the food you eat. You may experience a drop in appetite, or even a spike. Whatever the case, know that diet changes are a common theme during the ascension process.
When there’s an energy shift, you may start noticing even more synchronicities. People come into your life at the right time, you see a sign leading you in a certain direction, or numbers will continue to pop up out of nowhere. Synchronicity reminds you that you’re on the right path. Sometimes it may not feel that way; you’ll question where you’re going or what you’re doing, yet synchronicity is that little tap on the shoulder, letting us know that we’re on the right path.
Significant Life Changes
Beginnings, endings, and everything in between. Whether it’s a job change, marriage, divorce, or big move, the spiritual awakening process will never fail to bring big changes in your life. You may wonder or question why these changes are occurring- but don’t worry. It’s simply the Universe clearing up space for the next thing that is on its way to you.
Today in Brookline feels entirely different than it did six months ago. Although I’m in the same place, I’m in a new cycle- and I’m excited to see what this moon phase has in store.
