What is Awakening? What is Ascension?

These are terms which are bandied around and for many of us we think they're nonsense, describing some abstract hippy thing. But they are in fact real parts of ordinary, natural life. Quite simply Ascension and the Awakening process is a natural process that occurs in our bodies, our minds and our spirits. It's a type of growing up. More technically, it is the movement of chi [or qi, or kundalini shakti] energy as it purifies through each one of our chakras, eventually finding it's way out the top of our heads, or crown chakras, connecting us to Source with a new improved super-connection. You could also see it as a software upgrade, for that is exactly what it is.

During my childhood I was raised in a religious tradition as a Mormon. Now as an adult I look back at all the valuable things that it taught me, but as a young adult my perception of this religion was that it was overly patriarchal, and coupled with my marriage into a family of scientists, my spirituality slipped entirely away. I eventually only believed in the material world. That is, until my Awakening. 

Now I look back on both my religio-spiritual and scientific-materialist experiences as being invaluable to the outcome which is the final me; both have been reference points during my Awakening as I compare and tarry up the information from both 'sides', if you will, to where I am, in the middle. 

Part of my Awakening has been completely physical. As I was able to feel and hear with an increasing ability the electromagnetic fields of objects in my environment, such as mobile phones, wifi routers and other electrical appliances, I was forced to find out more about these fields and what they are. So due to my beliefs [or disbeliefs] I had to relearn everything spiritual through the very pragmatic prism of science. Here are some of my favourite websites, each of which produced an Aha! moment...
