The story of "Alice Through the Looking Glass" is filled with themes of time and space not acting quite as expected. And, the telling of Alice's second adventure ends with a poem, the final lines of which are quite appropriate now:
Ever drifting down the stream--There's an odd real-but-not-quite-real feeling in the air now. Looking at life objectively, things appear fairly normal. Usual routines, same house, same dogs, same work. But a part of the brain is working on entirely different levels, making it all seem somewhat dreamlike at the same time as appearances would tell us all is as usual.
Lingering in the golden gleam--
Life, what is it but a dream?
And the physical symptoms can be perplexing. Extreme tiredness for no apparent reason, then wakefulness when we lie down to sleep. Feeling hungry at odd times, and food not quite registering as expected -- still feeling hunger after eating plenty, or digestion just not working as well as usual. Headaches, chest pains, other odd discomforts as well.
It's said that these are all signs that our physical bodies are going through a phase of adjusting to the heightened energies -- "ascension symptoms" is the term some have given.
Lauren Gorgo's latest blog entry lists these symptoms and explains why they're occurring:
This merging of the spiritual and material…the awakening of unity consciousness…is happening through our heart centers as well as the pituitary/pineal glands so if you have been experiencing intense heartburn/ nausea (heart opening), pineal/pituitary activation (sacred marriage) symptoms...vertigo, sleepiness, FATIGUE, disorientation, insomnia, deep sleeps, sinus issues, headaches, sore/itchy scalp, watery/red/ itchy/burning eyes, changes in eyesight, etc...and/or digestion issues (root clearing/grounding/cellular detoxification), most likely it's related.It's comforting to know the reasons for such things! And good to know we're all in this together.
