Raising the level of our consciousness
What is Ascension? An Interview with Theresa Richardson
Visitors to Rhama might be curious to learn more about Ascension which has been a buzz word among some in the spiritual community of late, especially as 11-11-11 approaches. Theresa Richardson, along with Charlaine Hood and Gillian Macbeth, will be leading an 11-11-11 Ascension Workshop this coming November 11, and we tracked her down for her thoughts on the significance of these incoming energies.
What is Ascension? What is the purpose of Ascension?
To “Ascend” means to rise, and in a sense that is what we are doing here. We are raising the level of our consciousness to encompass the higher dimensional aspects of ourselves.
Ascension begins with expanding our perception to remember the totality of who we are. We are, and always have been, multidimensional beings. We are Divine Beings of Love and Light, part of a vast Universe of connected consciousness. As we remember who we are, we do not deny our bodies, or our 3rd dimensional reality. We simply open up to something more. And as we do so, the focus of our consciousness shifts, the balance point of our being shifts from 3rd dimensional reality to 5th dimensional reality.
How is Ascension relevant to each of us individually? Collectively? What changes can we expect to see in the physical world as a result of Ascension?
The focus of 5th dimensional reality is unconditional love. So the way that we manifest these phenomena is different with each person. But basically, as we adapt and reach for 5th dimensional living, we strive to love. We attempt to bring more of that energy into our interactions with ourselves and our world. At the personality level this means kindness, equanimity, and an attitude of love and gratitude, joy, and laughter. This is about evolution, not perfection. So we practice this, and try to get better at it. I once took a vacation with 3 women, and all of us were practicing our mastery. Without realizing it until afterward, everything just flowed. We had enough of everything we needed. The chores just seemed to get divided up in a way that suited us easily. Needless to say, we all had a great time. Later my spirit guides told me that that was what 5th dimensional living was like.
The Ascension of humanity en masse will take place over time. We are the forerunners. The pioneers. As 5th dimensional Consciousness becomes the norm, great healing is taking place. All of our governing systems will eventually change form, as well as our economic system and educational systems. This is nothing to be afraid of. It will gradually occur as it reflects the higher consciousness of individuals. The divine feminine and masculine will come into greater balance, and all of their qualities will be understood to be equally valuable. As you can see, this is happening now.
Why is 11-11-11 such an important date for these energies of transformation?
Evolution for our entire planet is happening at this time as pre-ordained, in harmony with certain astronomical and astrological influences. Our solar system is coming into direct alignment with the Great Central Sun of our Galaxy, which only happens every 26,000 years or so. Every year, for the last 25 years or so more strongly, pulses from the center have been getting stronger and stronger, and they are astrologically aligned with certain dates. Mostly equinoxes and solstices, but other times as well, like 11:11:11. This date and time is actually a portal, allowing major influences for growth and enlightenment to focus in time and space.
Ideally it would be good to spend a portion of this day in meditation. And If possible, try to focus on what you would like to manifest in your life. It will be a very powerful day for creating positive future experiences.
Why are we experiencing Ascension at this particular point in linear history? Has it happened before?
As many of you know, the earth is an intelligent and aware being with an evolutionary path of her own. It was intended from her inception that she would support the experiment in third dimensional consciousness, but only for a time. Her core has already returned to base 5, and she is eagerly waiting for us to catch up. The new magnetic grid is already completed, and the 6th dimensional crystalline grid will be complete and activated very soon. So the earth is ready.
Enough of humanity has re-connected to the Oneness, and made an effort to understand and communicate the process that much of the world is waking up! Yes, we will continue to have some Earth changes as predicted. But not anything as dire as imagined.
What should people expect from the Ascension process?
People all over the world are waking up to the true Oneness of our being, and our multidimensional reality. As we do this, and get in touch with our souls, our God-given gifts of clairvoyance, telepathy, and energy healing are naturally re-emerging. It is all a natural process. The idea of allowing is important. I also find it very helpful to make it a point to spend meditation and social time with like minded individuals. A practice of personal meditation is also very helpful.
Is there anything else you would like to share about Ascension and/or 11-11-11?
About 20 years ago I remember sitting and thinking that I would only be 56, still young, in 2012. That only seems like moments ago. It has been an amazing journey of self-discovery and healing, full of more joy and love than I could even imagine at that time. Although it wasn’t always easy, I wouldn’t change a thing. And I would like to encourage everyone to explore their personal connection to their Spirit, and let it take them where it will.
