Do you think you might be experiencing physical or spiritual Ascension Symptoms in 2023? Experiencing headaches, fatigue, electrical zaps, tooth pain or ringing in the ears? Are you waking up between 2 & 4 a.m.? Having vivid dreams or visions of angels or dead loved ones?
These can all be extremely unpleasant symptoms of 2023 ascension during spiritual awakening! Below, I’ve listed my 7 most unpleasant spiritual ascension symptoms and how I learned to deal with them!
These are the current signs of ascension to 5d (5th dimensional perspective) that you may be experiencing!
(And don’t worry, it gets better!)
Unbeknownst to me, I was on the verge of a spiritual awakening! I thought I was going crazy! But I was experiencing all the Bizarre Signs of a Spiritual Awakening. Ascension sickness symptoms and spiritual awakening signs tend to go hand in hand.
What’s worse is that I didn’t know what a spiritual awakening was or what one looked like… I didn’t know what I didn’t know.
I thought I was being haunted or going crazy, and I resisted my spiritual awakening heavily! Which just made the ascension symptoms worse!
The headaches were excruciating! I also experienced ringing in my ears and feeling like the phasing girl on Antman & The Wasp! (I didn’t feel like I was holding still when laying down. I felt like I was vibrating back and forth).
I argued and screamed at negative thoughts and my inner critic. I ran and hid from past fears. I yelled and threw things when my ears would ring. I took prescription pills for the headaches and lack of sleep.
And, I wished for my life to end because I was so incredibly homesick for the higher dimensions I was beginning to experience in dreams and visions.
I don’t want any of this for you! Hopefully, you aren’t doing any of these things! I hope you aren’t handling your spiritual awakening & ascension symptoms with as much imbalance and drama as I was!

What are Ascension Symptoms?
In short, ascension symptoms, or ascension sickness are symptoms your physical, mental, and emotional body exhibit while ascending from the heavy denseness of the 3rd dimension.
You may experience some, or all of these symptoms while ascending to living in the 5th dimension. (A higher faster dimension available on the Earth at this time. Mindfulness, joy, peace, graciousness, harmony, unity, oneness, kindness, and curiosity make up the 5th dimension).
Ascension symptoms, or sickness, may include, but are not limited to: Headaches, nausea, depression, loneliness, electrical zaps, sensitivity to light and sounds, body pain, tooth pain, fatigue, and ringing in the ears.
What is the Reason for Ascension Symptoms?
Your Soul is awakening, which brings more light vibrating at a higher frequency into your physical body. You are ascending from the 3rd dimension to the 5th dimension (5d). This requires holding more and more light that vibrates at faster and faster speeds.
This is very hard on your super-dense designed for the 3rd dimension physical body! Our physical body is being rewired.
My best explanation for this is that you’ve been living at the bottom of the ocean for a while (The 3rd dimension). Now, you are trying to ascend too fast (to 5d), and you get “the bends”.
On the mental side of ascension symptoms – old habits, pain, grief, fear, anger and sadness are coming up for you to observe and clear. This may feel overwhelming and depressing as we struggle to cope with a lot of these feelings at once!
Between stressing over bills, worrying about changes with your job, keeping food on the table, and all the craziness going on in the world right now – It is completely normal to feel tired, overwhelmed, anxious, and uncertain!
Plus, you have to deal with Ascension Symptoms on top of it all! This How to Ascend to the 5th Dimension e-Book has been gathered over 7 years, and compiled from hundreds of channeling sessions with the Ascended Masters, Archangels, and my own spirit guides!
They want us to be insanely HAPPY and get to the 5th Dimension faster!
In it, you will find out WHAT the 5th Dimension even is, HOW to get and stay there, ACTIVATE your 5th Dimensional chakra system, and the PROPER way to turn on your Star Tetrahedron (Which greatly reduces the anxiety, drama, and noise you’ve been feeling lately!)
Plus, the Teacher’s of Light have told me we can have ANYTHING we want – From a 5th Dimensional Perspective! So, you’ll be able to MANIFEST your desires with greater ease and speed!
With the wisdom contained in its pages, I’ve been able to manifest greater things with greater ease, maintain a strong connection to my guides, have more energy, and most importantly – FEEL MORE JOY!!!
I sincerely hope you take advantage of this special no-brainer offer and leave the 3rd Dimension behind forever!
Ascension Symptoms 2023
So, below are the Poopy, (Yes, poopy! They literally stink!) 2023 Spiritual Ascension Symptoms and what to do about them! These are all the tips and tricks I had to learn the hard way!
I hope that by reading this you will understand what is happening to you and why, know that you are not alone, and take away powerful tools and advice to help deal with these ugly ascension symptoms.
1. Waking up a Lot – Especially Between 2 a.m. & 4 a.m.
It’s funny that when you are “awakening”, you are literally waking up! A lot! I woke up so much between the hours of 2 and 4 a.m., usually with a dream message or an angel number to look up. I used these as a road map to get myself out of the “hell” I had put myself in.
The hours between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. have often been called, “The Witching Hour”. 3 a.m. has also been called “The Holy Trinity” hour, where “the veil” between the physical world and the spiritual world, thins.
I not only woke up between 2 a.m. & 4 a.m. on my own, I also received many phone calls! Actual phone calls from all zero numbers (zero represents the beginning of a spiritual journey). No one was ever on the other end of the line.
Yes, the spiritual realm can and do manipulate technology when they need to! But, at the time I just wanted my sleep!
What to do about Waking Up Between 2-4 a.m.
Follow the signs!
Is getting your sleep interrupted annoying? Yes, but you are awakening to your greater purpose. Don’t fight it! Use the signs to change your life and align with who you truly are, and who you were born to be.
2. Ascension Headaches 2023
Headaches. Dizziness. Fatigue. Ringing in the Ears. Pain in the Teeth. Are all Physical Ascension Symptoms in 2023.
Physical ascension symptoms can be scary!
(As a side note: Please get medical help or advice for anything that is concerning or worrying to you. There may actually be something physically wrong. Also try to pray and meditate for guidance on your symptoms and if they are ascension related or something wrong physically).
You may experience headaches, dizziness, fatigue, pain around your teeth and jawline, and ringing in the ears.
Many new pathways for light are opening in your physical body, especially in your head area! Your Third Eye Chakra may be opening, which can cause pressure, headaches, and sensitivity to light.
The new light codes vibrate faster and are clearing out all that no longer serves you. Many times, this takes a toll on our physical bodies. We require more rest and can get very dizzy upon standing.
Your clairaudient centers may be opening as well, which sends light around the temples and ears (which may be another reason for the ringing).
3. Ascension Symptoms Teeth
Pain in the teeth is another huge complaint of the Spiritual Ascension Process!
Higher frequencies of light may also be entering your telepathic channels, which are held in the jawline, sinuses and teeth. Another common 2023 ascension symptom complaint is an aching jaw and teeth.
New light codes from the Sun are entering your spiritual pathways and trying to clear your channels of higher communication, or extra sensory perception. (But again, check with your dentist as well!)
What to do about: Headaches, Dizziness, Teeth Pain, Fatigue and Ringing in the Ears
Eat better food to Ease Ascension Flu Symptoms.
In particular, an Organic Whole Food Diet will support your body while spiritually awakening. These foods are of a high vibration and match the faster vibrations of light your physical body is now trying to hold.

You can also try taking Spirulina for your ascension flu symptoms. According to Bibliotecapleyades.net, spirulina is great for ascension as it contains a “very high degree of life force”. It also “creates a balance in the amino acid tract”.
Spirulina is also extremely high in vitamin B-12 (helps with energy levels) and protein (also helps with energy levels).
Spirulina also assists in Decalcifying your Pineal Gland which helps open your third eye.
For best results, please choose an Organic Spirulina, like this brand below!
Sleep more if you need it. Drink more water.
Make sure your water is filtered with a really good water filter! This one, by Aquagear filters 2000% more contaminants, including fluoride (important for Decalcifying the Pineal Gland, that Brita water pitchers miss.)
Meditate to Ease 2023 Ascension Symptoms.
Particularly this, Ancient Meditation for Reaching Higher Consciousness. This is similar to scuba divers needing to blow air out every 10 feet or so upon ascending to the surface to avoid the bends.
Meditation helps you adjust to the new levels of light you are carrying, so ascension symptoms are minimized.
As for the ringing in the ears, I still hear it sometimes, although it has lessened since I’ve healed & dropped much of my heavy baggage that I was carrying.
Some say the ringing is you actually hearing the higher vibrations of sound. Others say it is the vibration of Mother Earth. Either way, it usually goes away very quickly.

4. More Physical Strength, Endurance and Sex Drive During Ascension to 5d
Some people have recently asked if more physical strength, endurance and increased sex drive are ascension symptoms. (These ascension symptoms sound like heaven! Where do we sign up to only experience these signs of ascension?)
Yes, these all can and did happen to me during the Ascension process, but I classify them more as a sign of Kundalini Awakening rather than Ascension Symptoms.
These symptoms are wonderful and a kundalini awakening often does go hand-in-hand with a spiritual awakening.
However, the increase in physical strength and sex drive were very short-lived in my experience. Boo!
I had the fatigue, tingling, and headaches much longer than the upside of ascension symptoms!
5. Fears and Negative Thoughts Popping Up
I don’t just count physical ascension symptoms as the only ascension symptoms for 2023. I also count your inner demons coming to haunt you as Ascension Symptoms Sickness!
As you take on more levels of light and begin the long journey to reconnecting with your Soul, you will be confronted with all the horrible fears and negativity that you’ve hidden away, but never processed.
Things that frightened you, or made you uncomfortable, never went away, you just hid them in a deep dark box (so you wouldn’t have to look at them again).
This doesn’t work for Spiritual Awakening. When you ascend into the 4th and 5th dimensions from the 3rd (where power, greed, guilt, blame, shame, fear, and negativity live), you can’t take your baggage with you.
You cannot live in the 5th dimension (5d) while still holding the vibration of angry, or sad, for example.
So, it comes up for you to look at, process, and release. Obviously, this is super poopy and sucks! Having to face one’s worst fears, guilt, and past is never comfortable and often very frightening. But, this is a necessary step to the process of awakening & ascending into 5D.
How to Release Your Ascension Fears & Negativity with Meditation and Root Chakra Work
More often than not, that deep dark box we’ve stored these ugly past experiences in is held in the root chakra.
So, one very helpful hint that helps ascension symptoms is to clear the root chakra, often. This will release the “old crap” much faster! It helps with depression, sadness, loneliness, and lets go of the “heaviness” that the extra light is trying to release from your body. However, be prepared to still have to look at and allow it to leave.
Don’t argue with the fear, past, trauma, guilt, shame, doubt, or whatever other negativity you’ve been holding on to.
The old adage goes, “Whatever you resist, you assist.” Allowing is your best friend in clearing through meditation and root chakra work. This takes practice and a lot of patience! Just remember to go easy on yourself. This doesn’t happen overnight!
6. Hearing Voices That Are Not Your Own. Or Worse, Hearing Your Own “Inner Critic”, Loudly.
This can be the most jarring and is another common ascension symptom or spiritual awakening sign. As pieces of your wounded psyche attempt to fuse back together, you may hear “many voices”.
Some of these voices are probably also your spirit guides, trying to help you out of the initial and hardest part of the ascension process. (Once I got through this first part, my ascension symptoms lessened considerably!)
It is difficult to make sense of who’s who and what’s what!
I struggled with hearing my own “inner critic”, which I go into further in this post: Mindfulness Meditation: Ultimate Beginner’s Guide.
My inner jerk, shadow self or critic would argue with my wounded victim and my optimistic self! Then I’d hear a song or spirit guide trying to help and make sense of the whole mess!
This was very annoying!
How to Let Go of your Inner Critic, Victim, and Shadow Self through Mindfulness Meditation
Again, hearing all the criticism you’ve hidden away for years is a common sign of spiritual ascension. They are simply coming to the surface for you to process, look at neutrally, and let go of.
How do we let old beliefs, fear, and negativity go?
We meditate, focus on our breath, and practice being an amused neutral observer. This takes lots of patience and practice!
Again, work on your root chakra. Also, ask Archangel Michael to cut cords to whatever ails you (Depression, anger, sadness, pain, doubt, fear, etc. He is a rock star! The other day I cut my cord to the words, “I am tired” and felt so much more energy the next morning!)
An important note to remember when working with our root chakra is that it releases all this baggage! So, you may get hit with this stuff harder at first, until you allow it to be released.
How do we allow old negativity and fears to be released?
Again, by simply observing them as they come up and allowing them to pass you as you breathe. Do not hold onto these thoughts or argue with them. Let them pass by you while simply focusing on the beginning of the next breath.
7. Feeling Disconnected, Lonely & Homesick
As you begin to awaken to the higher dimensional “you”, you will often experience an intense longing for your true home.
You see the ugliness in the world and have been considerably wounded by it. It is sometimes very hard to live in this world while awakening to the higher aspects of you.
When you spiritually ascend, you begin to sense and remember these higher dimensions where the ugly heaviness simply doesn’t exist.
This makes it extremely hard not to get lonely and homesick for your “true home”.
How to Deal with Ascension Symptoms of Loneliness, Depression, and Disconnectedness
I retreated for a while. I turned off technology and went hiking into nature. I spent lots and lots of time meditating and pondering my purpose.
Yes, I was lonely at first. But I got stronger by working on releasing my 3rd dimensional crap through journaling, meditation, and exercise.
The Beautiful Journal that I use and found on Amazon!
I healed my physical body and mind with healthy, organic, whole foods. And I asked for lots and lots and lots and lots of help from my spirit guides, Archangels, Source, and the Ascended Masters!
After, about a month, I began reconnecting with family and friends and found I connected with them on a much deeper level than I had before.
I was also able to help them through their crap much better! I became a lot better listener and friend to those closest to me! They were right there waiting for me after I healed!
I also connected with other like-minded spiritual groups on Facebook. These groups have nourished my Soul and uplift me when I struggle!
8. Feeling Overwhelmed by Lights, Crowds, and Loud Noises
This could be a sign that you are an empath and need Powerful Empath Protection Tools, or a temporary sign of ascension.
Either way, it is another poopy symptom of ascension sickness!
You can lessen this noise and overwhelm by using the tools in the previously mentioned empath protection post. Ground, shield and protect your energy!
9. Feeling Cold. Like Completely Chilled to the Bone Cold and you Can’t Warm Up
This is not often thought of as an Ascension Symptom, but I experienced it and have heard others complain of it often enough to include it.
Obviously, you get cold while meditating. You’re stationary. You’re pulling in huge amounts of air. You’re slowing your body and mind way down. This all makes you get chilled.
But, being cold during the Spiritual Awakening & Ascension Process was completely different!
My bones felt like someone was holding ice on them. All the time…
My teeth chattered and no matter how many layers of clothing I put on, I couldn’t seem to warm up!
There is hope though! Hot baths, showers, and lots of warm tea helped me immensely!
And, as with all these other Ascension Symptoms, the being cold thing goes away too.
Just be patient and try to make yourself comfortable through the process. Again, LOTS and LOTS of self-care are needed during this time!
10. Memory Loss
As you spiritually awaken and ascend into 5D, you may experience memory loss. Consciousness is expanding, but time is condensing to a single point in time, which is simply the present moment.
The past does not exist anymore and holding tightly onto all the pain, guilt, fear, and grief no longer serves you.
So, the tightly magnetized pain of the past is dissolving. I can still recall these memories as well as happy ones, but it takes me longer than it used to.
11. Feeling Manic – Experiencing Extreme Highs and Lows
As more spiritual ascension energy runs through your body, you may feel invincible, euphoric, and strong.
You are so excited about trying new foods, learning new things, and in awe of the beauty of life!
This might make you sleep less, eat less, and forget to stay balanced. What goes up must come down, and you then may experience extreme depressive lows and exhaustion after days of being on a “spiritual high”.
Remember to stay balanced and take time for self-care. Meditate, get enough sleep, exercise, and let your denser physical body have periods of rest to catch up with the strong ascension energies.
12. Experiencing Insomnia
Along the same lines of manic highs and lows, you are sooo excited to finally be waking up that you can’t shut your mind off!
You don’t want to sleep!
Everything may look the same, but it feels very different! It is as if you are a newborn seeing the world in a new way for the first time in years!
Allow this change. Allow the excitement and happiness, but again, if you can’t sleep, you can always meditate to get the deep repair your physical body needs.
Your physical body is much denser and slower than your spirit. Let it rest. Breathe deeply into your root chakra and lower belly with this meditation: The Ancient Meditation for Reaching Higher States of Consciousness
13. More Productivity
You have been “sleeping” and stagnant for so long that suddenly you want to accomplish everything you’ve been dreaming about for years all at once!
You may have days where you feel like hiking a mountain, writing a book, painting beautiful artwork, and cleaning your entire house – All in the same day!
Remember, ascension to 5D is a marathon, not a sprint. Remember to stay balanced in all things and you will actually arrive in the 5th Dimension much faster!

14. More Anxiety
As the ascension from the 3rd Dimension to the 5th Dimension “shift in consciousness” accelerates on the earth, many are experiencing more anxiety.
This is due to the increased frequencies being sent to the planet to assist in the awakening, as well as “the density leaving” mass consciousness.
It is pulling fears, pain, anger, grief, guilt, and shame to the forefront for us to look at, process, heal from, and then let go of.
Not everyone understands that a shift in consciousness in swiftly underway in 2023, and many are resisting the new energies.
This is creating pain and struggle in many, and we are feeling this energy and uncertainty “push against” our auric fields.
To counteract this, Spiritually Ground Yourself daily and go into water or nature often.
How Long Do Ascension Symptoms Last?
Ascension Symptoms can last anywhere from a few months to a few years – All depending on your willingness to take care of yourself through them.
Balancing your mind, body, spirit, emotions, and financial health during the ascension process, is key.
Self-care is a must when you are experiencing ascension symptoms! Meditate, rest when you need, stretch, pray, eat a Whole-food Organic Diet, and drink lots of fresh, clean, filtered water!
Pray with any questions and help you need from your spirit guides and angels, and then listen for answers.
They are always ready, willing, and able to help you through the Ascension Symptoms phase you’re going through – If you just ask!
Ascension Flu Symptoms 2023
Besides these spiritual ascension symptoms, many people are also reporting flu symptoms during ascension in 2023.
Many people are now relating actual cold and flu symptoms to ascension! These ascension flu symptoms can include: Sinus headaches, sore throat, body aches, mild fever, runny nose, stuffy nose, and cough while your physical body adjusts to the changes in your spiritual body.
One common thread of the ascension flu symptoms that have been reported in 2023, is the fact that these symptoms come on suddenly and leave very quickly.
Which is super good news!
If you have flu symptoms you think may be related to Ascension, you are not alone!
But, if your cold and flu symptoms last longer than a few days, they might not be related to spiritual ascension. You probably just have a bug and need lots of rest and Immune System Boosts!

Final Thoughts on Spiritual Ascension Symptoms 2023
I know it is very cliché to say, but if you are experiencing any of these physical or mental ascension symptoms from spiritually awakening, you are not alone!
These are pretty standard symptoms of ascension sickness, and I experienced them all! And swore at them all! All the live long day! Until, I finally accepted that I needed to take better care of my physical body, meditate more, and let go of past crap.
I also began drinking holy water daily and wearing crystals to keep communication lines to my spirit guides open. I asked for so much help from the Teachers of Light (Archangels, Ascended Masters)! And they didn’t care! They helped e-v-e-r-y time!!!
Know that these ascension symptoms will pass as you shift. And the worst part is the beginning of your awakening. I hope these words bring you hope and comfort and actionable steps to take to heal and align yourself with the home awaiting you in the beautiful 5th dimension!
I wish you much love and light! (And less poopiness!) You are finally returning to your true home…
Much love and light to you!
