Why We’ve Been Ballast-Cutting Like Crazy All These Years

Last year or so I perceived another symbolic visual message from my Higher Self that was, as usual, extraordinarily simple and beautifully to the point. It had to do with the Ascension Process — with the first transmuting and integration phase highlighted along with what comes afterwards due to that inner prep work. Of course I cannot find any images, illustrations, photos etc. that come close to the inner visions I see or any other higher dimensional location unless I attempt to draw them myself or ask my artist sister to draw it for me. However, after some rushing around online searching for photos, illustrations, or whatever I can find that comes the closest to what I perceive, I have to settle on buying whatever image(s) I do find that are the closest match. Such is the case with these purchased images below. They tell the story well enough but they’re not exactly what I perceived.

The visual message my Higher Self gave me in this case was of a large Hot Air Balloon far up in the sky with only one person in it and nothing else around. The entire image was a beautiful, rich gold color with thousands of tiny gold colored and white-Light colored sparkling glittering dots everywhere. The sky was gold, the balloon was gold, the person in the balloon was gold etc. Everything everywhere was gold colored except for many, but not all, of the tiny glittering white-Light sparkles.

I’ve seen different locations like this before in different dimensions and in different levels within those dimensions and quite often they’re perceived as all one color like this golden vision. I’ve seen other-dimensional and other levels where everything and everyone in that particular space was a beautiful deep blue color; a beautiful crystalline silver color; a beautiful milky pearl color with pale pastel iridescent baby blues, pinks, mint greens and lavender overtones. These visions where everything and everyone there is perceived as only one color is a message in itself.

The Hot Air Balloon represents the Ascension Process. The single passenger in the hot air balloon represents each one of us individually living the Ascension Process.

425x282 ballast bags

The many ballast bags filled with sand and attached to the hot air balloon represent all the unresolved density issues, karma, duality/polarity issues, emotional wounds, mental and emotional habits or addictions etc., “past life” (which are actually simultaneous lives) issues and wounds, fears, hates etc., current life guilt, anger, fear, projections, unresolved issues and other stuck energies and so on. All of the ballast bags represent the different and many dense 3D energetic issues that each of us have HAD to transmute, integrate and return to neutral or unity energy during the dark, difficult and painful first phase of the Ascension Process. Us doing exactly that is symbolically represented by us cutting and releasing each one of the ballasts from our symbolic hot air ascension balloon.

The golden sparkly environment that the hot air balloon and its single passenger were within represent a specific higher frequency range beyond the frequency range of dense duality. It represents the 5D range where the integrated and neutral High Heart unity frequency is the sole lens on reality and basis of reality at that level of development and focus. This gold space and level is not the end-all by any means, it simply was a visual representation of the shift point where one ascends/evolves out of the range of lower frequency 3D dense duality consciousness and reality and into the range of 5D High Heart unity consciousness and reality. There’s so much more beyond this frequency range and symbolic sparkly golden space or level, but for now, this is where we’re evolving into (the High Heart Sun is Rising and the Shen Ring and Shenu articles information) and that’s why this hot air balloon message was gold in color.

The next phase of the Ascension Process is where many of the Forerunners currently are now. And this is also where I can’t find any really correct photos or illustrations to give you a symbolic visual of what’s unfolding now. These different colored triangles represent triality or unity — not duality — come pretty close. Your High Heart feels it coming (not to mention we’ve entered December 2012) and that’s going to have to be your personal visual for this aspect of higher embodiment into your physical body.

If you look at the first image of the man in the hot air balloon working hard ballast-cutting — transmuting and then releasing his emotional wounds, fears, limiting beliefs, unloved and/or projected aspects of himself across time in 3D — you understand why he’s been hard at work lightening his dense vibrational load.

Because he’s transmuted his inner accumulated energetic density and karmic stuff and symbolically cut/released the majority of his ballasts from his hot air balloon, he’s naturally able to ascend higher and higher in frequency and awareness to the point where he (you/me/us) finally shifts into a higher frequency space and dimension. And because of his alchemically transmuted and cleared self and bodies, he is (we are or are becoming) empty enough, transparent enough to actually begin embodying his Higher Self into his physical body and Lower Self. Transmuting and cutting loose (energetically returning dual energies to higher frequency neutrality) all of our inner ballasts automatically causes us to ascend higher, enough so that eventually we reach a dimensional crossover shift point where our hard inner work results in being able to embody as much of our Greater, Higher Self as we can now into our transmuted and receptive physical bodies. No pictures needed for this phase of the Ascension Process because your High Heart already feels and knows it’s close.

  1. Yes, that’s it of course. Thank you, Denise, for your excellent response. I know I knew this at some point on this journey, but I had forgotten and find I’m forgetting more and more as the days go by. I guess the thing is, we’ve been so hard at work cleaning up Gaia and the etheric messes, sometimes we, or at least I did forget that we’re doing it for ourselves, too. The campsite metaphor was perfect. I’m at the stage now where I’m packing up my tent, my sleeping bag is rolled and already in the hot air balloon! Wanted to also let you and everyone know that this morning as I was lying in bed gazing at the ceiling, a brilliant electric blue orb appeared, flashing gold lights. It was gorgeous, but being rather worn out from all of this, I asked if it were friendly. It immediately morphed into an electric blue/gold flashing heart! It was “my Arcs”. Oh, Denise, they stayed with me for at least ten minutes and I just wanted to melt into this electric blue/gold love, even the ceiling was shimmering almost like the picture you have provided above of the “goldy sparkly environment”. Truly a lovely experience and I thought immediately of your Light Beings. And I just want to wrap this up by saying that I thank you from my heart for your — relentless is the only word that I can adequately describe — love for us. You have brought me so very far on the Stairway to Heaven and the campground has never looked so good. Love to you and All Here. B.

  2. So funny Chrysalis … I linked Denise’s post with the title – `Up, up and away’ … and also had just been looking at a pic I had taken of a hot air balloon before I came over and saw Denise’s post … Brilliantly funny synchronicity moment.
    Also … the name `Chrysalis’ is also interesting as a friend of mine has just finished her current blog and has began a new one with the name `Emerging’
    Mmm…. many messages for us all …
    Unity Consciousness .. synchronicistasitcal waves abound. 😉

  3. Just want you to know I totally understand what you’re dealing with trying to transcribe things. Look up Michael Newton and you’ll see that you can hypnotically regress here. I regressed to the elders aftery last life ended. I thought it was another planet! I meditated on finding where my spirit came from. That gold place looks just like your picture. No dimension or time you can do or be anything or see out of someone else’s eyes with them. It was beautiful.

  4. Oh my gosh, you guys. I’m sitting here laughing to myself (and at myself), and real heart excitement of this process.

    I just got up a while ago, and as I was moving around my apartment, usual morning routine, all of a sudden I heard in my head:

    “Up, up, and away, my beautiful, my beautiful balloon”

    You know, from “The 5th Dimension”. Hahaha! Now, I wasn’t even born on this planet yet around that time (not until 1973), and yet lately, around the edges I’ve heard in my head the “Age of Aquarius” song from them but didn’t give it a thought, not really. This morning, however, with a visual of Denise’s article and pictures, it was so perfect it was hilarious to me. So I just had to share this with all of you.

    Have a wonderful day, everyone!

    With Love and Light(ness),

  6. “…PS: Can I just say that I am so in love and lifted up by the new back ground (sky with the steps)? It took a bit for me to see behind the words that it’s a staircase. It’s wonderful 🙂 “


    Thanks… I couldn’t resist using those Stair Steps up into the Sky as a background now in December 2012. 😉


  7. “Denise, this is a wonderfully uplifing post, thank you. I will re-read many times as I “feel” its importance and High Heart vibes. Can you tell me, please, because our “past” lives are actually simultaneous, and because I can remember so little of my own, is it safe to say that once we have cleared our self and bodies in this life, then the other lives and bodies are cleared, too? And will those of us who can’t remember simultaneous lives, know when those lives are cleared because that is when we will embody the Higher Self? I hope that made sense! Love to you and thank you, B.”


    Remember Barbara Marciniak’s channeled Pleiadians saying, “…you are the Standard Bearer of your soul…”?

    Yes, we have been transmuting all karma across physical time on Earth (and more actually) because this entire Evolutionary Cycle is completing (with the 12-21-12 energies) so we’ve been cleaning up and releasing all of our stuff. And by “we” I mean these versions of ourselves — the Denise version, the Barbara version etc. etc.

    Many years ago my Higher Self presented me with another of these types of vast information packets in the form of a profoundly simplified symbolic visual with accompanying emotional understandings. In this situation my HS showed me the symbolic visual of some people camping in a mountain camping grounds. They’d gone to the campground (which was physical 3D Earth) to camp out for a while (I know, I know…it’s almost comical!) which was souls having incarnations in 3D, BUT, when they were done with their time camping, they HAD to clean up the mess they’d each made at the campgrounds before they left the place to go back home. 😉 Gotta love it.

    So yes, we’ve been transmuting, integrating or cleaning up our messes we created while “camping” in 3D which of course include this present lifetime and all “past” ones too, before we leave to go back home (to a higher frequency of being/awareness/residence etc.)


  8. Love the balloon! Are the colors you see, ones we can’t see here? They are ……….. no words come to explain. Thanks and hugs, Gwen
