I have been talking a lot about our energy being upgraded lately, both in my blog posts and to my Weekly Insights subscribers. Receiving an energy upgrade is a very real process and has great effects on our physical bodies. The recent 12/12 portal activation was very much focused on upgrading our meat suits to be strong enough to house the new energy and vibrations we’ve been creating within.
Although we receive energetic downloads of information all throughout the year, there are some points in our calendar in which the energy is so great, that it has a Universal effect on all of us “sensitives” as we go through the process of lightening our loads and becoming more enlightened as we travel our spiritual path.
Also known as ascension symptoms, the physical body does actually suffer under these new lighter energy codes as we receive them. Depending on where you’re at in your spiritual journey, and how sensitive you currently are to energies, you may be feeling a long list of physical symptoms that just can’t be explained or diagnosed by medical professionals.
DISCLAIMER: Always trust your intuition on whether to get certain ailments checked out by a medical physician. When your doctor clears you of suffering from a diagnosable condition, that’s when you should take the ascension symptoms into consideration.
Since the 12/12 portal activation, many people (including myself) have seen really weird aches and pains surface in their bodies. Some had old, healed ailments come back out of nowheres, while others were experiencing these aches and pains for the first time with no physical trauma to help explain their existence.
Feeling pressure, on the front of the chest, back of the neck, and in the head (especially sinus pressure) can all be linked to the physical symptoms of an energy upgrade. When we think of our physical bodies in relation to our energy centers (chakras) it becomes much easier to understand which parts of us are under the most influence as we move through the upgrade process.
I myself have been seeing bright flashes of light to my left. Vision changes – blurred vision, light sensitivities, and seeing flashes of light in the peripherals – are all common symptoms of the ascension process, or energy upgrade. The third eye chakra is the main focus of my current upgrade. I can only assume the Universe is turning up the dial on my gifts and abilities making me able to see more in the Spirit realm and strengthen my connection to those in Spirit.
Emotionally, people feel like trains wrecks, flip flopping back and forth between being happy, peaceful, calm, and having faith that everything will be okay, to depression, anxiety, panic, and a feeling of hopelessness, all in a short amount of time. These roller coaster of emotions are a perfect example of cycling through the energy upgrade, making leaps and bounds connecting with the Universal consciousness, being infused with all the lighter emotions, connecting with the optimistic future of the 5D world, only to have the 3D world pull us back down to the heavier emotions of this human experience.
There is a constant push and pull taking place as we shed the old parts of self and embrace the new, but the purge, the cycle we are going through can be very overwhelming and confusing, especially when we aren’t aware of the signs and symptoms of an energy upgrade.
Many clients have reached out to me, complaining that their sleep has been disrupted and they are having wild dreams of people and places that they’ve never encountered before. Please know that as we upgrade our energy and raise our vibration and frequency we connect to a totally different level of dream states than we ever had access to before.
I’ve been studying dreams for close to 20 years now, (and will be offering Dream Analysis in the New Year) fascinated by the fact that our subconscious mind has more power over us than our waking minds do. Diving deep into dreamwork can expose where your blocks are in your life and what pain and trauma your subconscious mind tries so hard to process while you sleep. What I’ve noticed, is that when we undergo such powerful energy shifts, we get exposed to parts of our Souls that have been to other dimensions with a whole group of people that we’ve never met before or have any point of reference of here in this lifetime.
All of these sleep disturbances are perfectly normal under the current circumstances of this energy shift. Taking pointers from our energy centers once again, those sleep disturbances would suggest that your crown chakra is the greatest focus of this upgrade, connecting you to a higher sense of knowing than what you’ve experienced here in this physical world.
Another common complaint is pain or discomfort in the knees. Whether you are experiencing this pain in both legs or just one, please know that this is where you hold your fear about taking your next steps on your path. If the right side of your body is giving you the issues, chances are you are struggling to embrace the change of your outer world. The fear of providing for yourself and your family, the goals and successes you fear from actually reaching, literally being afraid to take the initiative and start taking ACTION in your life. Where as, the left side indicates the emotional issues we need to resolve to remove the energetic blocks placed on our path.
In no way does this mean that these physical symptoms aren’t real and any less painful just because they are energetically manifested. Instead, they are as real as it gets, indicators for us to see what lies underneath of these physical pains, and how to energetically mend them.
I can assure you that you are safe and protected as you go through this process, and that you will never be given more than you can handle. You can always reach out to your Guides and to the ArcAngels to help alleviate some of the symptoms that become too much to deal with.
It’s important that you listen to your body and nurture it back to a place of health and alignment. Engaging in energy raising activities can help the transition go faster and be less intense. Below I will include what is a very long list of possible symptoms and include some activities you can try to alleviate the discomfort.

- Acknowledge the flashes of light as spirit trying to communicate and tell them that you are trying hard to understand them
- Be patient with yourself as you upgrade, understanding that it is all for the greater good of who you need to be, to be in alignment with your new goals and dreams
Of course you may not be experiencing all of these symptoms, and there are definitely other symptoms that can manifest that weren’t included in this list.
I will be launching a workshop in the New Year that will focus on our energy centers (chakras) and how to translate our physical symptoms to the energetic source of pain or trauma. Should you be interested in being notified of this workshop, please click here.
If ever you need assistance or guidance understanding these upgrades and validating that you are in fact NOT crazy, please book a session online and I’d be happy to help guide you through.
Many blessings to you during these times!
