If you are going through any kind of stress, trauma, or physical challenge, if you are feeling tired or sluggish, the key is to look for things that will lighten your load. Say yes to everything that lightens your load. That is the biggest form of self-love that you can do right now, and that means allowing yourself to receive..✨ ~ Anita Moorjani 🤍
“Embrace the Spirit of Change” by Kate Spreckley
January is a month that marks the threshold of an entirely new and more intensely personal phase of our global transformation, as the incoming energies continue to upgrade the current energetic structures and expose what needs to change. A greater need for freedom is initiating the birth of new and radical ways of being that will ultimately have an exceptionally positive impact on all areas of our lives. This may be challenging and difficult in the moment as fears and negativity are exposed. However, for too long fear has been the driving force behind our choices and our actions, and we are encouraged now to embrace the spirit of change and to allow our soul to take the lead.
Be mindful that you are completing a cycle and there is no benefit to be found in hanging onto the old. Honor what has been and recognize what truly matters. Work with the energies and allow what is unnecessary and redundant to be cleared away. Acknowledge that although the form of your future is still taking shape, you are being inspired to move forward and into the full expression of your soul. Remember that a deeper connection with your soul is what will bring a more expansive and energizing energy into your life.
Make peace with your body today my friend, for it has toiled for many years just to keep you alive. It has grown, weathered virus and disease, healed countless wounds and fought many unseen battles, to keep your soul intact for its journey through this life.
Yes it has changed but it has been changing since the day you were born. And it will continue to change until the day you die. Make peace with this.
Striving against this change, is like trying to blow away the wind. Futile, pointless, misery-making. Your body has served you well and done so with your daily hate and disapproval.
It has suffered years of daily, hourly negativity, pulsing its way from your brain to your cells… Not good enough, not attractive enough, not perfect. And every day you thought it wasn’t perfect, it really, truly was.
It was keeping you alive, supporting your rash decisions, counteracting your foolish mistakes, doing everything in its power to stay in the game. For you.
Make peace with your body today, my friend, say your apologies, right your wrongs and move on with appreciation. You are blessed.
Look around you, not everyone is so blessed. Not every one is breathing, walking, thriving. And whilst you are looking around, see that nobody is perfect. The way a body looks, says nothing about its strength, its longevity, its endurance.
This is not a rehearsal, this is your one shot at a life well-lived.
Thyme tea contains potent antiviral properties and is essential for Cold & Flu, Epstein Barr, Shingles, Hepatitis, Influenza, Herpes, Cytomegalovirus, HPV, etc. If taken on a regular basis it can significantly help to reduce the viral load in the body which makes it highly beneficial for those suffering with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Vertigo, Tinnitus, and Multiple Sclerosis.
Thyme tea also helps stimulate memory, ease headaches and muscle tension, soothe coughs, relieve fevers, and fight colds and infections. It also contains a compound called carvacrol which is an excellent natural tranquilizer and has a tonic effect on the entire nervous system. Thyme is a good source of pyridoxine which is known to play an important role in manufacturing GABA levels in the brain, aid in regulating sleep patterns, and benefit neurotransmitter function in the brain. GABA is also one of the best natural defenses against stress damage.

“10 Symptoms of Ascension Flu” by Katherine Anne Lee
With any kind of physical ailment, there’s an energetic root. This could be obvious – like the same old stress at work that always makes your shoulders ache. Or, the root of your illness could run so deep that it’s ancestral, carried in your DNA and impossible to identify, looking at only this lifetime. A thorough treatment of a physical issue requires tapping into this root, into the energetic cause, which could be something like a trauma, a familial belief pattern or even an ancient spiritual contract. Find a way to access this, do the work to clear it out and you’ll see its physical manifestation shift.
It works the other way, too. If you make conscious changes in your energy body, if you unpack some old, limiting thought pattern or belief system, or let go of a harmful emotion like shame or guilt, then a ripple effect will move through the energy bodies, until it reaches your physical body. And it’s here on the physical plane that, even if you’re feeling emotionally tip-top, the last vestiges of this emotional block will emerge, until your whole being has been realigned.
But as this happens, it can make you feel pretty crappy. But don’t worry. It’s common. So common it has a name: Ascension flu.
Ascension Flu and Symptoms Here is a list of the most common ascension symptoms, and yes, many of these are very similar to “the flu.” But before you put that skeptic’s hat on, ask yourself… what’s that all about?
Aches and Pains Unexplainable achy-ness, joint or muscle pain can be a sign that your body is re-adjusting to a new frequency. Commonly, dense energy builds up in the neck, shoulders, and back. And when this is being forced to dissipate, it hurts!
Gentle yoga flows, targeted energy healing and drinking plenty of water, and adding mineral salts to your bathing water, are all ways to soothe these flu-like body aches.
Headaches Some of the worst ascension symptoms to experience are headaches. Often these relate to the third eye and/or crown chakras being opened, causing any ‘junk’ that’s in the way (possibly stored in the pineal gland) to be released. Overthinking, and trying to ‘figure things out’ will often make it worse, as the higher vibrational alignment you’re being called into isn’t (yet) perceivable by the logical brain, so doing this is an expression of your resistance.
Essential oils are a great healing resource for these kinds of ascension headaches.
Runny Nose/Blocked Sinuses Symptoms that may also be connected to the third eye chakra. But in addition, an excess of mucus can be a physical manifestation of the intense release of debris from your whole being. If accompanied by coughing, and the mucus is being brought up from the lungs, it’s a sign the heart chakra is undergoing a clearing too.
Sore Throat Related to the ascension symptoms above, a sore throat can be a further sign that your highest chakras are moving into wholeness. But a sore or achy throat also ties into self-expression. Many lightworkers and people who are raising their consciousness and undergoing spiritual awakening are still not talking about it openly. Sure, it’s scary and puts you in a vulnerable position (and a lot of the fear we hold of talking about the unseen realms is down to ancestral conditioning) but it’s the truth, and it’s important to discuss. As an ascension symptom, a sore throat may indicate the adjustment occurring, as these old fears of speaking out are released.
Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) This is unexpectedly common and actually pretty scary for many people. Can last just a few moments, or go on for a few days. As sound is the closest vibration to the astral realms we’re able to feel through our senses, it’s where many of the finer adjustments of ascension can be perceived.
Can also indicate the sphere of your personal awareness(to all facets of life, seen and unseen) being widened.
Sensitivity to Noise Another flu-like ascension symptom which can make it truly hard to get out there and face the world when you’re suffering is high sensitivity to noise. Related to the point above, particularly if you’ve been working through emotional blocks relating to conditioning around your perception, and what you believe to be true about the world.
This may also be a precursor to the emergence of clairaudience – the ability to hear psychically.
Fluctuating Temperature A common flu-like symptom caused by spiritual activation is your body temperature rising or falling unexpectedly. Imagine your phone when you’ve been on a call for an hour- it gets uncomfortably hot. When there’s a lot of ‘behind the scenes’ activation happening, your body temp can get way out of whack.
Heart Palpitations Scary, yes. Your heart rate may change, speed up, or flutter without any external cause. This may be another symptom of the heart chakra activating.
But of course, if this goes on for any length of time or is genuinely distressing or worrisome, get yourself to a doctor quick smart.
Changes in Appetite The human body’s need for physical nourishment can fluctuate dramatically when your level of consciousness rises and symptoms of ascension hit. You may not be hungry at all for months. You may feel starving all the time! You may crave only light, raw food as the vibration of your physical body rises. Or you may desire heavy, protein-rich food as you feel the urge to ground. Don’t resist whatever messages your body is giving you. Eat what you need to. When you need to.
Lethargy / Low Energy A very common symptom of spiritual awakening is low energy levels. Of course it is – moving through such a lot of internal adjustments is exhausting work!
But if this becomes ongoing or shifts into depression, seek help. Long term unhappiness is not acceptable, whatever your circumstances.
Sleep Patterns Changing Regularly waking up at 3 am? Needing a mid-afternoon nap? As your internal body structures are reorganizing and up-leveling, you may find that you need to recharge at odd hours of the day, or that you wake up energized at equally odd hours of the night!
