Sandra Walter Ascension GuideIt is best not to be preoccupied with the side-effects of these intense waves. The goal is expansion of consciousness and a dimensional shift; the body, if commanded and supported to do so, will compliment this journey as best it can.

A lot of folks have been asking about pronounced symptoms. There is a very detailed module on the Body Consciousness in the Ascension Course which covers everything the body will go through during Ascension and how to support and accelerate that process.

Personally, I AM not one to dwell on symptomatic side-effects of the Ascension Process. Every side-effect is purposeful and will demonstrate:

– what is happening in your process
– present things to you which much be released in order to go further
– pinpoint areas of the body which store deep emotional baggage which cause dis-ease, aging, decay of the physical structure.

Remember we are taking the body right through this journey, up to the point of transcendence where it becomes transformed into a more crystalline-based projection.

Every dis-ease is caused by emotion, and amplified by the mind and ego through behavior, habits and beliefs. Symptoms which are not related to releasing are what I would consider a true Ascension side-effect.

Collective Side-effects
We are a collective consciousness here – no matter how independent you get from the collective, you are still subject to the effects of new light on the planet. Some folks synch with the planetary consciousness and feel her adjustments, some align with the Sun and feel the influence of galactic frequencies coming into our Solar System. Regardless, there are some upgrades, activations and accelerations which occur en masse, affecting many people in a  similar way.

Body Vehicle adjustments on a collective level are side-effects of consciousness expansion. The more of us ready and willing, the more the collective can receive. This is a multidimensional operation; a coordination between us and the higher teams of light beings, star families, and guidance realms who are consciously working on the Ascension project playing out here on Gaia.

Magnetic balancing is why we had a group of people falling down with vertigo last month. A big magnetic adjustment occurred, and when we started whirling to the ground, our Higher Selves who are working with the Galactic teams made adjustments when they saw us stumbling. Sorry everyone, this is a first time for all of us! This phase is a magnetic balancing act, and there will be strong magnetic shifts for the collective coming this Spring. So we were experimenting with a few  volunteers. Great service, everyone. Thank you.

Solar activity hits the cardio vascular system first, so the thymus flutters, pinpoint tingles in the chest, shifting in the chest, poncho and poking sensations are most likely effects of density release – the more you surrender, the more can be released, the easier (and healthier) your journey will be. Meditation and release are very important as the energies rise; don’t let them pool in your internal structure – open up.

Pineal-Pituitary complex activations are common now – be sure to drink a lot of activated water, circuit balance, move and stretch often. Headaches show stress to the system, either through activation or release, so step into your Mastery and take care of yourself.

Two pronounced side-effects of our expanding consciousness and new body templates, which may be disturbing to some, are the Buddha Belly and Cranial Expansion.

The Buddha Belly
These amplified waves of light may accelerate the new gland growth in the abdomen, which some call the Buddha Belly. It has been going on for years and may become more pronounced for those who consciously work with Light.

For clarity: the new glands which form just under the diaphragm and above and below both sides of the navel are specifically intended for light integration; support for new levels of light frequency in the body. The old body template could not hold the amount of light coming into the planet without breaking down the nervous system, organs and lymphatic systems. Many dis-eases affect those systems first when a new level of light is taken on in the body.

The new glands – which may be dimensional for a period of time before they become physical – swell the area where they form, and then fill with blood and water as they activate. My abdomen grows very large from the ribs to just below the belly button when I work with higher levels of light or teach.

You may have big belly weeks; puffed up one day and gone the next. It can feel quite uncomfortable, however it is not consistently so. If your diet is alive and clean (no sugars, low-vibe grains, alcohol, caffeine or processed foods), you drink a lot of water and exercise, and your abdomen is swelling up and down, this may be why. Women seem to be especially sensitive to this, as well those with Sirian lineage.  One day I look six months pregnant, the next day it’s gone. It is what it is. Let’s abandon any beliefs about ideal body type and go with the higher flow. Drink water, pay attention to dietary changes, wear loose clothing and move, move, move. Pooling of energies cause dis-ease if the body cannot keep up, especially now.

Cranial Expansion
This is a doozy of a side-effect, and probably the strangest one I have the pleasure of wayshowing. Lines of raised bone begin to appear on the skull, running from front to back. Some follow traditional cranial suture lines, some do not. They lift up, then the area between them fills in. It is subtle at first, then the lines may become more pronounced.

Areas of the head may become bumpy or wavy for a while, then smooth out. The top and back of the head may grow to reflect the elongated shape of societies past. It is the reflection of an ancient lineage, which has nothing to do with your current family monad. Dramatic changes to the skull depend upon your Galactic genetic lineage; that’s your star family.

Note: it has to be the bone itself which is growing, all over the skull. This is not growths on the skull structure; the skull itself is changing. It is a slow progression, however the raised ridges themselves can be startling if you don’t know what is happening. Feel your head and track it if you are interested in this side-effect. Get a trusted friend to feel your skull and check in on it once in a while; this helps in the mind-level proof that some around you may need. Wayshow by being comfortable and open about it.

Cranial expansion serves few purposes:

– Brain reactivation: Dormant cells coming online may need more room, and hemisphere rewiring (dissolving of the membrane between hemispheres)

– Activation of new glandular structures around the brain which assist in higher states of consciousness (it may feel like your brain is wriggling around inside your skull)

– Telepathic communication – for me personally, it its like building a room for higher level communication. This relates to my role of interdimensional liaison, and I will get into telepathy and teleportation in this article series. When I was shown where this cranial expansion is going, I looked like an ancient goddess. That probably won’t happen in the physical; it is a metaphoric expression of remembering higher communication skills.

Cranial expansion started for me as a teenager – my best friend and I used to refer to it as my *continental drift* back in High School. It accelerated in 2009 and I have been through a series of rapid changes with it in the past two years. It can be uncomfortable, painful, weird, and you may feel like you are wearing a crown at times. It is very physical, and I AM grateful to understand why this is happening to me. It’s just me – all part of my prearranged role here, and I embrace it. Sometimes I embrace it with a head scarf.

Leveling up means you don’t focus on symptoms, you focus on the purpose of the energy and feel the full experience of what it is creating within you.

Remember that no one else can tell you if it is a side-effect or if you need medical assistance, except for your Higher Self. A single side-effect that is consistent is showing you something – and that may require more than writing it off as a collective symptom. Use your discernment.
