Welcome to my Ascension toolkits page.

If you’re wondering what Ascension is—or whether it even exists—you may wish to read some of my Ascension foundations posts. Ascension is a thing, and it’s often not a pretty thing. Those experiencing Ascension need simple emotional tools to manage the unstable but sentient process they find themselves in. Hence this series.

Ascension Toolkit #1: Breathing

Ascension toolkit #1: Breathing

In know, this sounds really dumb. But when you get into the roaring forties of Ascension, nothing will stabilise you as much as deep, conscious breathing.

Ascension Toolkit #2: Intent

Ascension toolkit #2: Intent

If breathing is the safety net of Ascension, intent is the fuel that carries you forwards. Progress along the path of Ascension is very much like a stock market graph. Intent is what takes you higher.

Ascension Toolkit #3: Neutrality

Ascension toolkit #3: Neutrality

Neutrality is the compass that guides your journey. Neutrality, or non-judgment, is achieved through removing the polarized ‘spin’ of good or bad from any event, belief or behavior.

Ascension Toolkit #4: Boundaries

Ascension toolkit #4: Boundaries

There are two potential issues with boundaries: us imposing on others and others imposing on us. For most people on the Ascension path the latter is by far the biggest issue.

Ascension Toolkit #5: Permission

Ascension toolkit #5: Permission

Most of us are familiar with the word ‘permission’ as it relates to access rights on computers. This also applies energetically. What we feel allowed to do equates with our comfort zone.

Ascension Toolkit #6: Discernment

Ascension toolkit #6: Discernment

Have you ever been in a situation where you need to make a choice, and while everyone is telling you to make a safe, sensible decision, something inside you is screaming to do the opposite?

Ascension Toolkit #7: Faith

Ascension toolkit #7: Faith

I’m not talking about religious faith here. I’m talking about faith in yourself and the faith that you are in the grip of a sentient healing process. Sometimes this process requires you to step off a cliff.

Ascension Toolkit #8: Courage

Ascension toolkit #8: Courage

We live in a world that recognizes and respects courage: the military hero, the policewoman, the fireman who rescues a child from a burning building. During Ascension courage takes on new forms.

Ascension Toolkit #9: Surrender

Ascension toolkit #9: Surrender

The very word ‘surrender’ has a number of negative connotations: losing a fight, lacking the ability to impose ourselves on a situation, giving in or giving up. This is precisely where its power lies.

Ascension Toolkit #10: Acceptance

Ascension toolkit #10: Acceptance

Ascension teaches us that every issue we perceive outside of ourselves reflects an issue within ourselves. However, there is only one place these issues can truly be resolved, and that is within.

Ascension Toolkit #11: Self-observation

Ascension toolkit #11: Self-observation

You might think that we all do this innately, all of the time. Actually we don’t. Whenever we are acting out from some unconscious trigger, we are completely oblivious of it.

Ascension Toolkit #12: Self-responsibility

Ascension toolkit #12: Self-responsibility

Some tools are more powerful than others. Some are easier to use than others. It doesn’t come as no surprise that the most powerful tools are the hardest to use. A case in point: self-responsibility.

Ascension Toolkit #13: Grace

Ascension toolkit #13: Grace

Is grace a tool? Yes, because you can consciously wield it just like any of the other tools in this series. Grace doesn’t appear randomly. Grace will appear when you satisfy its preconditions.

Ascension Toolkit #14: Forgiveness

Ascension toolkit #14: Forgiveness

Forgiveness changes the past. This may seem like a trite sound-bite but let’s look closer. What is the past? What happened and how you feel about it now. Change the latter and everything changes.

Ascension Toolkit #15: Self-love

Ascension toolkit #15: Self-love

We live in a society that has long regarded self-love as selfish and narcissistic. There are many people who are simply incapable of self-love. If that’s you, read on.

Ascension Toolkit #16: Gratitude

Ascension toolkit #16: Gratitude

Gratitude is a power tool. Like any power tool, you can’t use it with a flat battery. You have to bring enough of yourself to the job to get gratitude to work. Preferably, bring all of yourself.

Ascension Toolkit #17: Balance

Ascension toolkit #17: Balance

Ascension leads you beyond the hurly-burly of polarised existence into the still waters of balance and unity. When you are uncertain how to choose, choose balance.

Ascension Toolkit #18: Vulnerability

Ascension toolkit #18: Vulnerability

Vulnerability means opening the door to change, painful change. It means recognising the dynamic of ‘breaking down to break through’.

Ascension Toolkit #19: Sincerity

Ascension toolkit #19: Sincerity

If you are consciously or unconsciously trying to manipulate a situation, the gods of Ascension will not play ball with you. You must be sincere.

Ascension Toolkit #20: Abandonment

Ascension toolkit #20: Abandonment

Yes, abandonment has a flip side, a positive side. And sometimes it’s just the tool you need to get unstuck. But this tool does come with a safety warning.
