What is Ascension and Awakening?
Difference between Awakening and Ascension: Many people confuse "Ascension" with "Awakening". It is hard to distinguish these two because they go together. When you begin the process of awakening, you also begin the process of ascension. Likewise when you start the process of ascension, you also begin to wake up. The two go together, however they are different. So what's the difference? Michael Sharp www.michaelsharp.org defines these two process as:
Awakening is the process of returning to full consciousness of your spiritual self. When you awaken, your mind expands to allow more spiritual knowledge to be taken in. When you awaken, your body clears negative emotions and fear stored from past lives. During this stage your body and mind becomes "purified" of fear and negativity. As this happens, your "view" of things changes dramatically. Awakening is very easy to do. How long will it take? This depends entirely on you and your comfort level with the higher consciousness. Everyone's process of awakening is slightly different. The awakening process can be halted at any time, usually as the result of disorientation, fear, and/or lack of understanding. Awakening can also be accelerated through intent. Simply say "I wish to awaken as fast as possible" and your process will accelerate. You can also ask for help with the process by simply asking your guides, your angels, the universe, or God for assistance
So, what is Ascension? There is only one symptom of Ascension: an increase in your ability to manifest in the world. You are the creator of your world. You become aware that there is a direct correspondence between what is in your consciousness and what you find in the world. You realize energy follows thought or as above in consciousness, so below in matter .When you are cut off from our full spiritual power, you can't manifest or create at full efficiency. So, "things" happened in your life at a relatively slow pace. However now, as the planet ascends (and as you ascend along with it), the rate you manifest will change. You will have a more direct influence over the physical world. You become more powerful and as that happens, "things" start occurring at an faster rate around you.
What kind of things Happen during Ascension ? This depends on the state of your consciousness. If your consciousness is focused on fear, you'll find these fears manifesting around you faster and faster. If you're consciousness is all dark and confused, you'll find the world becoming more confusing all the time. If you're consciousness is full of hatred and spite, you'll find yourself hurting others more often and with greater force. This is just the beginning. As the ascension proceeds, as "the shift" happens, manifestation will continue to accelerate. Very soon creating in this world will be very easy and quick. It won't take much effort at all. The most important ascension symptom is our Co-Creation Power.
At this time you will feel an acceleration of time. If your on the negative side you will feel a sense of chaos in your life or the life of those around you. It is important to get control of your consciousness and this involves not only purging any negative emotions, fear, or heavy heart blackness that you might be carrying around deep inside you, but also getting rid of any erroneous notions you have about life and the universe. These notions can influence how you manifest your world. If you believe God is vengeful and judgmental, or that your government is out to get you under this new ascending energy, you just might manifest these very conditions. And if you ask me, you really want to avoid that. With a few million people thinking the same way, it could get very nasty .
The Divine Plan & ET's
Look at these Symptoms, behaviors, attitudes and beliefs to see how far along you are in the Ascension Process. The 12 Step program for Ascension from the Writings of ZaKaiRan AatKa'Nui Shee Han
First Level Lightbody: An inner voice can be heard saying , "It's time to go home." You feel "Now is the time". At the same time, the body says, "Time to change, lighten up, get rid of the heavy density". Most people have the flu and release old traumas, toxins and stored emotions from the physical body. In March 1988 a majority of lightworkers were activated to the first level lightbody.
Second Level Lightbody: You may feel a little disoriented, a little tired and still experience flu symptoms. You begin to have a feeling that there is something called spirit in your life and that you are connected to your soul. You start seriously asking the question "Who am I, and why am I here". Physical change happens very rapidly and you experience lots of fatigue as your body mutates and needs the rest to catch up.
Third Level Lightbody: Your physical senses are becoming stronger. You may grow intolerant of loud noises, strong chemical smells etc. You may become aware of anything that is not natural and organic. You will probably become determined to have natural things around you. Your eating habits are changing, you want to exercise more, you want to get outside with nature more. If you're not a vegetarian yet, you may become one. Clothes maybe distracting and you may want to run around naked. You may think of leaving the city and moving to a smaller town or into the country. Your sexual drive may increase. You will want to make love a lot and to improve sexual relations. Your cells are beginning to absorb the light directly. A two-way conversation between your physical body and spirit has begun.
Fourth Level Lightbody: This is the mental stage. The chemistry and electromagnetic energy of your brain is beginning to change. You may be experiencing headaches, chest pains, eye problems, blurry vision or difficulty hearing. The hemispheres of your brain begin to light up electrically across both hemispheres at the same time. You feel the electrical energy running across your scalp or down your spine. There are flashes of clairvoyance and a sense of being connected to all things. Chest pains are something you may experience throughout the lightbody process because the heart chakra begins to open at deeper and deeper level. Personal identity changes to include the possibility of being a spirit having a human experience rather than a human having a spiritual experience.

At this point you give up all past religions, beliefs and completely adopt new ways of perceiving reality. You may vacillate between the "the old" and "the new ".You may feel between too worlds. Your ESP or Intuition is getting better. You remember more of your dreams, sense things are going to happen more frequently. What you think manifests more quickly.

At this stage people change their relationships, jobs, marriages etc.- you may feel very alone. You are now frequently using telepathy and you are actively communicating with your spirit guides, councils, angels, etc. About 1/3 of the light body structure is now lit up in the new blueprint.

You realize that even though you are an immortal you are operating within the limitations of a human body and human existence.

All your chakras start operating as one unified field of light and you are online with the Christ Oversoul at every level. You can transport yourself via teleportation, manifest anything etc. Your Merkaba is fully activated, all three strands of DNA are activated, you link up with your personal Avatars, councils, brotherhoods or ascended masters to coordinate changes in the new frequencies that are being channeled into the earth.
Eleventh Level Lightbody: You have built your merkaba and it is fully activated.
