Fear & Embodyment | Ascension Discussion Pt 5
Today we get really real.  In part 5 our 7 part interview series with Ceres Andromeda we go deep into fear, illness, death, and what it means to go through the ascension process while we are in our human bodies. We're in a very accelerated process of Embodyment right now. As Ceres shares, "the light is pummeling anything that is separation based in our bodies right now."  This series of Ascension Discussions covers through the 7 main pillars of Ascension as created by Ceres, in her online course. These pillars providing tools and tiered Light activations for those feeling called to consciously engaged with their Ascension process. And to be clear, anyone and everyone on the planet right now is going through an Ascension process. The difference is that you may or may not be conscious of it. This work will meet you where you are at and support you in your continued path of evolution & awakening.  IN THE INTERVIEW: - Energetic update for the middle of February 2019 ~ how duality (this or that, my side/your side) is very up this month. - Twin flames & the significance of Valentine's Day. - What Embodyment means from an Ascension perspective and why we may be experiencing more rigorous embodyment right now. - The importance of getting sick how that actually means we are getting well. - Why there is no Ascension without Embodyment. - Why it feels like an absolutely insane time to be alive right now and how this has never been done before. - My personal process with being sick and the fear that I will die. - The use of Western / Allopathic medicine & the importance of trusting yourself - How getting sick physically is directly related to our emotional processes and can help release distorted emotional energy. - The true purpose of our spiritual practices, such as meditation. - How to self heal by talking to our cells. - How intense spiritual practice without embodyment = spiritual bypassing. - How to give yourself permission to trust your body even when it goes against collective belief systems around health and wellness. - How our identification with certain diets or health regimens can be a detriment to our Ascension process. - Acknowledging the fear of death and how our desire to control it drives all of our actions around health in our life.  Link to the Ascension Essentials course: which is on sale through the March Equinox.  Link to free complementary videos to this series:  More podcast episodes at

By aligning with the true essence of the number 6 you will find a smoothness and harmony while riding upon an earth-road that is under construction. - Gillian MacBeth-Louthan
