As we have recently explored, psychotherapy can play a preparatory role for some on the path to ascension. By helping heighten mental and emotional awareness and facilitate healing emotional wounds and trauma, psychotherapy can help an individual evolve, but only in the context of the ego and self. As we journey toward higher consciousness, there is a greater need and a capacity for peace, love, and unity, causing psychotherapy’s limitations to become increasingly evident.
In an ever-changing world, relying on old tools to solve new problems is akin to trying to light up the night sky with a flickering candle. Only by letting go of the outdated can we truly embrace the transformative flow of progress and unlock the boundless potential of our expanding consciousness.
Steppingstone or Sisyphus’ Boulder?
Some say that Sisyphus kept pushing the boulder up the mountain because after cheating death twice, he was foolish enough to believe he would one day get the stone to the top. While psychotherapy can serve as a valuable steppingstone on the path of self-discovery, self-awareness, self-exploration, and self-realization, the limitations of ego-based healing become increasingly burdensome as we detach from the 3rd Density, transcend the ego, merge with the Collective, and embrace universal love. Psychotherapy is only useful within the 3D paradigm. This is how a stepping stone becomes a boulder of a burden. But how are we to know when this shift occurs?
The Awakening of Evolution
Evolution, awakening, and ascension are not discrete moments in time. They do not begin where the other ends in an assessable way. The path of ascension is like the dawn of day, from light almost imperceptible to a fully illuminated sky. The transition involves gradually awakening to the interconnectedness of all beings and realizing the fallacies of separateness. As individuals begin to perceive the state of being beyond individual concerns, egoic needs, and personal gains, they will find the self-focused nature of traditional psychotherapy inadequate to answer their questions and establish the fundamentals of ascension.
Fundamentals of Ascension
Ascension requires specific catalysts of consciousness. We cannot force these upon ourselves and surely not upon others. These are a set of higher desires, urges, mental, emotional, and spiritual realizations, and explorations that keep us moving along the path of ascension. These catalysts include,
Shadow Healing & Soul Integration: This occurs once an individual releases who they are not, recovers lost parts of who they are, and integrates the healed pieces of their personhood. At this point, psychotherapy may still be helpful.
Seeking Transcendence: This is often characterized by a desire to transcend the limits of the ego and the fallacies and low vibrations that the ego-driven 3rd Dimension perpetuates. This is when individuals usually begin to supplement psychotherapy constructs with more high vibrational modalities and concepts.
Expanding Consciousness & Yearning for Unity: In this state, the individual is seeking a deeper connection with their heart, their soul, and the universe. One understands that they are part of something greater than themselves, and the desire to understand what that “something greater” is grows. Psychotherapy is discordant with this frequency and can, in fact, delay or obstruct evolution.
Discovering Oneness with the Collective: The realization of the interconnectedness of all existence is dawning. The importance of service to others is underscored, and an individual’s capacity for love, peace, and unity becomes increasingly expansive. Only collective-oriented practices such as meditation, loving-kindness practices, QHHT, and shamanic journeys are pertinent to the ascending soul’s journey. Psychotherapy is now rendered obsolete.
Embracing the Flow of Transcendence
The path to awakening is a natural and gradual process, much like transitioning from psychotherapy to more 5th Dimensional tools and constructs. Neither can be forced, only embraced as a journey of receptivity, trust, self-compassion, patience, and love for the Collective. Each individual’s journey is unique, and there is no formulaic response or fixed timeline one must follow to reach the higher consciousness of the 5th Density. But we must surrender to the transcendental shifts and vibrational changes leading us to the Age of Ascension.
Surrender requires letting go of limiting beliefs, ego-driven patterns, and attachments to past practices and principles. In contrast to how it may sound, surrendering is not easy, at least not initially. One may struggle and find the act of allowing challenging, but rest assured, it can pave the way to an expansive existence of greater ease, peace, love, and unity.
New Reality of Higher Consciousness
There is no one-path-leads-all approach to transitioning from traditional psychotherapy to practices that cultivate higher consciousness, nor is there a charted path from 3D paradigms to 5D principles. Each baby step, each stumble, and each Estride adds a hue to the sunrise of awakening.
We co-create the colorful journey with the Universe and the Collective until we have filled our consciousness with light and gentle strokes of love, unity, and peace, painting our reality with brushstrokes of higher intention and purpose. This is the moment to behold as the landscape of the New Earth comes alive!
