What is Ascension Flu?

What is ascension flu?

I hadn’t slept well for the last two nights. I had been waking up at 1-2am and not being able to go back to sleep. Some people may call this insomnia. I would agree. However, it was also accompanied by other physical symptoms which left me wondering what was going on. As I took myself out for a walk in the woods, I asked upstairs/the Universe/Source. What is going on? Ascension sickness, is what popped into my mind. What on earth is that? I thought. Is that even a thing? I asked on Twitter but tumbleweed. I turned to my trusty google to find out if anyone else had experienced this and I found a few articles online.The physical symptoms started about two weeks ago. I had this feeling in my solar plexus area, in my stomach that felt like a knot. No amount of Reiki, healing or meditating could shift it. I tried ecstatic dance, which worked for a couple of days and 5rhythms.

What are the signs of ascension flu?

Ascension flu occurs when our physical bodies fail to keep up with our spiritual growth. We are aligning with energies and frequencies which may not have been felt before. As we head through 2020 and beyond we are entering a new phase of being and that can affect us physically. We may not feel well, but not really sure why. We may go to the doctors, they may run tests and nothing. It is as if you have the actual ‘flu’ but different. Below are some of the symptoms.

  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Pains and aches within the body that can’t be explained by a doctor
  • Hot flashes through the body
  • Waking up through the night and not being able to go back to sleep, or if you do only for a couple of hours
  • Extremely vivid dreams
  • A change in diet
  • Headaches- Our 3rd eye chakra and pineal gland may be opening, allowing us to connect to ourselves and the other side.
  • Sore throat- For many of us we have kept quiet about the work we do and maybe even our beliefs, hiding them from friends and family. Our throat chakra is the place where we communicate from. As our energies ascend we are more likely to share these beliefs with others.
  • Ringing in ears- this is opening up our clairaudience.
  • Sensitivity to noise
  • Cravings for particular types of foods. I haven’t eaten nachos in years then had them twice in one week! Eat what your body wants you to eat. Some of us may comfort eat at this time as we want to protect our solar plexus area
  • Crying for no reason. I have never cried as much as I have the last 4-6 weeks. Sobbing my heart out at the wheel of my car whilst singing to Ellie Goulding.
  • Gritty or blurry eyes
  • Skin issues

I would always recommend getting checked over if you do feel out of sorts but having this awareness can help you when going through a spiritual growth period.

Have you experienced ascension flu? Would love to hear your thoughts!
