The First Trimester

3 trimesters 800x474

FIRST TRIMESTER: Winter Solstice 12-21-12 until Spring/Vernal Equinox 3-20-13 (in the northern hemisphere — opposite in the southern hemisphere)

Cosmic Awareness (see link to Rainbow at the end of my article) has called the period from 12-21-12 to 9-22-13 the “Nine Month” period. From the Expiration Date and Shift Point of December 21, 2012, these nine months fall into three seasonal trimesters of gestation for humanity:

     three trimester alchemy stages

  1. 12-21-12  Winter Solstice winter months is the First Trimester
  2. 3-20-13   Spring Equinox spring months is the Second Trimester
  3. 6-20-13   Summer Solstice summer months is the Third Trimester

Many years ago I discovered a couple of online Ascension Teachers’ writings talking about how everyone on Earth was going to ascend to 5D in December 2012 come hell or high-water. Everyone will ascend, eventually, just not all of them will do so at the same exact time that some wrote about many years ago.

We Forerunners/Pathpavers/Starseeds/Lightworkers have attended many higher dimensional (‘Inner Planes’) Council Meetings to discuss Ascension-related updates, difficulties, potential problems and so on. We’ve met like this repeatedly over the years, some of us for decades, to exchange information about potential Ascension problems, minor changes, seeming setbacks, repeated delays, necessary time extensions in the physical dimension, and the wonderful accelerated periods and large progressions increasing numbers of people were making with the Ascension Process as well. But many of us, myself included, have always known that no matter how much more time we Forerunners waited for and how hard we continued working to help the stragglers decide to get on-board this current Ascension train, that everyone would not fully ascend at the same time or in one grand leap from dense Dark 3D physical Duality into full Light nonphysical 5D Triality.

It would have been extraordinarily wonderful of course if every soul incarnate on Earth could have done this together during the “Three Days of Darkness” — December 21, 22, 23, 2012 — but that is one major leap for anyone to make no matter how developed and aware they are, let alone billions of people doing so en masse at the same moment on Earth. Difficult yes, but not utterly impossible. But what’s happened is that an extension period has been given by Source (for different reasons) to all of us in an attempt to, yet again, give more people more time to finally realize a couple of very important things such as finally deciding to individually and internally empower themselves which instantly aligns them vibrationally with a matching frequency ascending Earth world and timeline. It’s that simple yet for so many it is still terribly difficult.

Because of how big this rare and grand Universal evolutionary shift/leap actually was/is, there’s needed to be many tweaks and more waiting time added to the Ascension Process over the years leading up to the Expiration Date and Shift Point of 12-21-12. However, there’s also been a need for even more time to be added to the Ascension Process after 12-21-12 for those billions of souls still not ready to make such an extreme and colossal evolutionary shift from what’s been strictly negative 3D Dense Duality, directly into full positive 5D Light integrated Triality! That is one immense — and for most people — impossibly extensive evolutionary shift to make in one single move from such extreme 3D negativity, dense Duality and Duality Consciousness, directly into 5D Triality High Heart Consciousness and Light.

As much as we Forerunners/Starseeds/Lightworkers/Pathpavers want this freedom for all souls incarnate on Earth now, it is not and never was the only two (duality consciousness) options available to humanity and Earth. We Forerunners volunteered to incarnate into negative controlled 3D Dense Duality to Build the Bridge, Pave the Pathway, to Embody and anchor in the Light so that humanity could even remember that Light existed and realize that other choices do exist for them. Source/God/Divinity is far more creative and complex than only two polarized, dualized extremes such as this, and because of this far more than just those two probable Earth worlds and timelines are and will be available for all of humanity to choose from. These multiple choices are ascending Earth #1, ascending Earth #2, descending Earth #3 etc.

In-between these two radically extreme Earth worlds, dimensions, levels of consciousness and realities exists an Earth world I call a transitional Stair-Step world. It’s a transitional stepping-stone Earth world that’s not strictly the old negative controlled dense Duality 3D world we all incarnated into in these current lives, nor is it a fully polarity resolved, integrated, unified ascended 5D Triality Earth world of Light either. There’s always many different Stair-steps for the varied humans, souls, beings that need them.

Earth A/B already exists and we’re living on it during the final “Nine Months” period before the full Separation of Worlds beings around the Equinox in September 2013. Earth A/B will have Duality on it but it will be a balanced, sane, fair and honest world of Duality which will seem like heaven on Earth compared to the hell on Earth we all incarnated into before the Expiration Date! Earth A/B exists (at this time but won’t always) within upper Astral 4D and is that much-needed transitional Stair-step Earth world between the old 3D Dense Duality and nonphysical 5D Light Triality. Humanity needs the greater ease that this transitional Stair-step Earth and additional time provides them before each person ascends even higher.

We’ve actually been inching our way into this 4D Earth A/B for the past couple of years, but by the end of the Third Trimester and start of the Separation of Worlds, this Earth world we’re living on today will become Earth A/B and the majority of humanity will find themselves on it. The other people who still want or need other systems of learning will end up elsewhere will simply perceive themselves existing on an Earth world such as descending Earth B or elsewhere that’s a frequency match for them and what they desire to continue experiencing. They won’t be consciously aware that anything has changed at all or that there even was a 12-21-12 Expiration Date and Shift Point, the “Nine Months” period after it, or the subsequent Separation of Worlds & Timelines in late 2013. Please don’t worry about where people go or don’t go because it’s not your concern when these multiple timelines and multiple realities and Earth worlds all separate from each other. It’s a blessing that the majority of people won’t consciously remember or realize that any of these dramatic evolutionary separations and changes have even happened. This is no different from the majority of people currently unable to remember their past lives or even most of their nightly dreams.

In other words, because there were not enough people awakened enough to active a planet-wide full ascension to nonphysical 5D at the 12-21-12 Expiration Date Shift Point, there needed to be another tweak to this unfolding Ascension Plan which was the addition of nine more months for, hopefully, many more people to open their minds and hearts to higher awareness within themselves.


  • severe inner head spinning or vertigo, occasional related nausea, this is connected to the changes in the Thymus (High Heart) gland/chakra
  • increased Thymus gland pains, pressures, soreness in the center of upper chest area out the front and back of your body
  • periods of physical heart pounding fast and hard while at complete rest, this is connected to the changes in the Thymus
  • severe exhaustion and fatigue
  • muscle and body weakness
  • ascension flu, chills, body aches, brief stabbing pains in certain areas and/or joints
  • inner cold flashes
  • inner hot flashes
  • after another few rounds of Kundalini Fire…purging diarrhea
  • unusually severe blurry vision, dry eyes, unusual pressure feeling against eyes
  • constant ‘ascension tinnitus’, inner ears ringing or humming, buzzing etc.
  • increased anomalies and phenomena, increased linear time distortions, expanding awareness of the nonphysical Beings and other dimensions etc.
  • weird and/or highly symbolic dreams, dream messages, continued expanding and evolving awareness/consciousness
  • increasing higher knowing as opposed to lower frequency linear thinking, intellectualizing etc., expanding functioning of the new High Heart heartmind or heartbrain
  • increased conscious knowing and inner feeling that nothing is remotely the same since 12-21-12 and that we’re definitely in a different type of transitional period now
  • severely amplified (and sometimes distorted) sense of smell, smelling scents that aren’t physically there, smelling scents that last for days or weeks, foods smelling differently to you
  • pets displaying more and/or slightly intensified ascension symptoms too, sickness, pains, difficulties etc. Love them, tell them Thank You for journeying with you during these intense ascension times. The animals and all life are going through this too

During February 2013 I kept thinking about when I was pregnant with my son long, long ago and how the three trimesters felt to me. During that physical pregnancy the first trimester was, for me, horrible because I vomited everything 24/7 for the first four months straight. This Ascension related First Trimester has been for me, horrible too, in that it has been even more intense than the previous fourteen years of Ascension Processing and accompanying symptoms. Just when you think the Ascension Process cannot possibly get any more intense!

Because I’ve always been highly psychic in this life I knew immediately when I conceived my son — I mean before it had time to happen physically. But I suspect that most people who don’t have this type of higher awareness are instantly flung into all sorts of sudden and unexpected changes the moment they find out they are pregnant. I suspect this same emotional and physical intensity has been the case for all of us in varying degrees since 12-21-12; we all suddenly discovered on 12-24-12 that we had nine more months of being “pregnant” with ourselves and have been in some form of further adjustments and preparation mode ever since.

The ever-present exhaustion has for many of us been amplified tremendously in 2013, making it even more difficult than it was before to carry out the simplest of daily tasks. I’ve dealt with the extreme ascension exhaustion symptom for many years already, but with the start of 1-1-13, it’s increased dramatically. (Your mileage will vary with all the different Ascension symptoms because we’re unique individuals each experiencing this Alchemical process in our own ways.)

With the start of 2-1-13 these energies increased even more dramatically, making the entire month of February 2013 a month like none other! The first day of February 2013, I woke up with the Inner Head Spinning vertigo ascension symptom which, when severe, usually causes nausea and forces me into bed. Throughout the first three weeks of February this inner head spinning symptom lessened incrementally day-by-day, until by week three it was to the point that I could finally function without tipping over, walking into walls or vomiting. A lot of other Ascension symptoms hurt far worse than this one but it certainly makes it impossible to do much of anything but clutch the bed or chair in an attempt to make the room stop spinning.

Within a day or two of the Inner Head Spinning symptom being almost gone by mid-February, that symptom was replaced with greatly increased Thymus area pains and pressures. I’ve had this Ascension symptom many times before but never this severe and intense. In all honesty, the last ten days or so of February through March 2nd, I wondered if I was going to physically survive the intensity of what was transpiring in my Thymus area.

The Thymus endocrine gland is located ABOVE the physical heart and is positioned in the CENTER of the upper chest. The Thymus gland is now the 5D HighHeart seat and center of awareness, unity, triality, trinity consciousness. The physical esophagus and often other nearby organs experience increased restrictions from spasms, pressures, pain and/or difficulty swallowing foods/liquids and getting them to move down the esophagus into the stomach. Even some of my ribs and spine/vertebra at and surrounding the HighHeart Thymus gland area is sore and bruised feeling, just like my head, skull and scalp gets when major energy influxes are taking place inside our head and endocrine brain glands — Pineal, Pituitary, Hypothalamus primarily.


(I am familiar with the four colors — black, white, red, yellow — and stages of old-school Alchemy, but what I’m talking about next is different from those old 3D esoteric teachings due to the current Universal Ascension Process. What I’m going to share next is also not for everyone because everyone is not living this particular Alchemy of the Three Trimesters within the “Nine Months” extension period.)

After weeks of severe Inner Head Spinning followed immediately by about ten days of severe Thymus HighHeart poundings during freaking fabulous February 2013, I perceived a few large sections of Higher Awareness information in the form of clairvoyant visuals and simultaneous claircognizant knowing. These blocks of visual information further explained that my physical body has been deep within the First Trimester stage of the Nine Month period and these amplified symptoms are normal for where we are now after the 12-21-12 Expiration Date Shift Point, and in the First Trimester, before full Separation of Worlds fully activates physically.

three trimester alchemy stagesAnother section of the visual information I perceived contained three different colored spheres in triangular (Triality) formation. These three (Triality, not two of Duality) colored spheres represented the Three Alchemical Trimesters unfolding during the “Nine Months” period. One sphere was yellow colored, one red, and one white. (Yes I am aware that old-school Alchemy has a fourth black color and stage/phase along with the other three colors and stages/phases. We’ve already done the black stage over the past fourteen years, and the others too for that matter, but we’re now individually focused on deeper-level, last-minute refinements, resolutions, realizations, further releasing etc. of whatever remaining issues we each have that were revealed to us during the “Three Days of Darkness” (12-21-12, 12-22-12, 12-23-12) alive Life Review.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t consciously remember your ascension related living Life Review and what was revealed and understood by you at higher levels of awareness during that time. You know it at deeper levels and those issues have been increasingly revealing themselves to you/me/many but unfortunately not all of us since the start of the First Trimester. These Three Trimesters of the “Nine Months” really are a Divine gift for each of us to use to further our individual spiritual Ascension Process and ongoing learning. Really utilizing these Three Trimesters to honestly see, deal with, integrate and release into neutral Triality whatever it is that presents itself to you about yourself and your beliefs etc. will benefit you tremendously over the rest of this year and beyond. We’ve all been given this extension period for important reasons; I suggest we each take advantage of the available energies of these Three Alchemical Trimesters to make whatever further inner changes we each need to now.

The three colored spheres also revealed how different each Trimester and phase will be individually, and of course how important it will be when all three Trimesters/phases are completed within us in the physical by the end of the “Nine Month” period. What’s happening internally in our bodies, our consciousness, our lives, our individual little realities is also what’s happening external on the global world stage. Is it any wonder, especially now after the 12-21-12 Shift Point, that so many of us are soul-deep in whatever stuff we still have within us, our belief systems, our families etc.?

While seeing the image of the three colored spheres when my upper Thymus area and lower heart were pounding so hard I wondered if my physical body would survive, I recognized them from old-school Alchemy teachings about the four stages/phases of the Alchemical process. While I was going through this First Trimester phase of this in late February, I had a semi-humorous symbolic visual of myself being covered in dense layer upon layer of dried, brittle concrete that these Divine energies keep repeatedly hitting hard enough that they’re breaking the dense layers and causing them to fall away. As tired and sick as I am now, I’m still very excited to experience what the Second and Third Trimesters will bring for me, for you, for all of us. Hammer away Divinity, please, hammer away…

I plan on writing a recap near the end of Trimesters Two and Three like this in the hopes that it will help us all better consciously see, realize and understanding the deeper-level individual soul purpose of the Three Trimesters before the Separation of multiple Worlds and timelines fully begins at the September 2013 Equinox. I cannot impress upon you how really valuable this time from 12-21-12 to 9-22-13 is for each of us and how much more can be gained by simply being honest with ourselves about whatever comes up for us to see, feel and deal with internally now. Use this time wisely because it’s unfolding astonishingly fast.

  1. About 7 years ago I kept seeing the numbers 3,6,9 and now I wonder if it refers to the 3 trimesters. I saw the equation 3,6,9=11
    I felt that 11 was a resurrection number. I still feel like I’m in a life review, resolving unfinished karma and I am deciding to experience the A/B World even though I’ve lived
    in higher dimensional triality worlds. The symptoms of the 1st trimester I am experiencing in my own way. I cannot ascertain distance too well in 3D so am often knocking into things. Oh the bruises… I am excited about these 9 months and almost can’t wait for the seperation of worlds although it will be hear soon and I have a lot of work to do! I trust we will all end up on the worlds we resonate with. Thanks for your insight, Denise.


  2. I find all your topics of great interest. I have bne following Tolec and Kimmels work on this subject, almost from the start. I too have had some very unpleasent experiences , which seemed to happen with solar flares and energies coming fom the sun. really bad headaches, feeling quite unwell, wretched.. These have died down now. They have never happend before in my life. thare are to my knowledge ten months before the fateful date, again refering to Tolec. it would seem there is to be a bifurcation of the populace, thiose whose vibrations are unsuited to 4D and 5D to depart for another planet, whilst the remainder will stay on earth as it ascends to a higher frequency.
    Dolores cannons work also talks in this way, though details are lacking.
    it would seem to be a huge cosmic experiment, again many sources talk about it as such. Something so rare, in fact unique in cosmic history. Maybe we are a template for other worlds, other realities or simply Creator is so damned sick of the negativity and darkness on this planet something drastic had to be done to rectify and bring Earth to the level of the rest of the planets. We are a cosmic eyesore so dreadful it could’nt be alowed to continue.
    the earthchanges seem to be ameliorated now, no massive crustal shifts, the odd severe temblor here and there, nothing spectacular so far. This seems to me a sign of some kind of intervention maybe our star brothers and sisters. Maybe Creator itself.
    I could go on but must end here. Your website remains an inspiration to those of us who study this subject, and thank you for it.

  3. when Spirit told me I was pregnant (in 2012 sometime) I started to try to piece together the puzzle, as I always do. Like you Denise I thought about my own pregnancies and what they were like. I was the same weight now as when my second child was born, having the same symptoms. So I thought that I would have the answer to this whole spiritual puzzle on my daughters birthday, November 24. When nothing seemed to happen on 11/24/2012, I started to look back again and remembered that her original due date was 12/12………it blew my socks off. I was actually supposed to have both my girls at the same time, on my first visit to the doctor during my first pregnancy they told me I was having twins. This news sent me into a tizzy, out of control with fear and not wanting to have one baby, much less two, I somehow had some kind of spontaneous loss of one of the babies. Still pregnant with the other, my due date was 12/10. But she was actually born on 11/2. Her birth brought on what I can only call my “awakening”. Right there in the hospital, she was the reason that I finally believed in God. My little 3 lb 8 oz baby girl. Much to my surprise I was pregnant again, this time with a due date of 12/12. How could that be? Both babies due within days of each other. Everyone always commented on them and asked if they were twins. The girls were born a year and 22 days apart. I can’t always put all the meaning together but I know that they are there. Once you started writing about the “9 months” I knew that this was indeed a spiritual journey. I am embracing the pregnancy, most of the time (chuckle), and looking forward to the next 2 trimesters. So blessed by your writings. Thank you, K

  4. Hi Denise,

    I found your website around 2 years ago, after googling my symptoms (tinnitus, heaviness over my third eye area, vibrations and a bubbling sensation in my skin, chills in my legs, stabbing pains neck/shoulders, digestion problems, allergies). I’ve had these symptoms for around 10 years now, and (like most of your readers) would love to know when it will come to an end. I have also seen multiple numbers on a daily basis (11:11, 444, etc) for about 17 years. So I’m pretty sure that I must be on the ascension journey.

    I’ve done various meditation practices over the years and for the past three years have been studying with a meditation system that uses mantras, raja yoga, nada yoga, jnana yoga etc. The teachers of this method claim that with daily practice over many years that you will reach ascension.

    So my question to you is: Is it actually necessary to meditate to reach ascension? It seems from what you say that it is going to happen to us all anyway.

    I would very much appreciate your opinion.

    Many thanks,

  5. Namaste Denise, It was exactly I strated to feel in januari. I feld all to symtomes if I was pregnant. It feels the same way as the first stages in the 9 mouths..Very strange feeling. I was wondering……….I”m 61 years ! I was remebering my 3 prengants before very well. Also I was knowing thise even before any body test could discover in that time.
    I ask myself what that could thise mean……….I had also dreams of deliver a child or even a growing up child. Now it makes sense to read your experience Denise. The last weeks it was very intense with the ascension symtomes!!., It feels more and more presure on physical body!The presure in the body is more intens than ever before! It was feeling if I could died any moment…… The Dreamstate are .clear on the other side of the veil but its still fogy over here. Sinds 4 days I feel more space coming in the body and new energie is slowly taking its place.
    Thanks Denise for your sharing and to everone hould on!!! (hope you can read thise Englisch!!) Dhyana. (NL)

  6. Dearest Denise,

    First, I want to say bless your heart (and your head, your stomach) for living through all these intense physical body changes, and still attempting to reach out and attend to Transitions! Hugs!

    As we’ve been going through these past months, for myself I’ve found that I truly resonate with the truth within your words. You succinctly manage to explain what many of us know on some level and yet cannot put into words.

    To date, I’ve become more discerning (better at it). I read an article and stop because I “know” it doesn’t relate to “my” experience in this 9-month period. I don’t push myself to finish reading it, I just stop and move on. And in that process, I’ve chosen to not visit certain sites anymore, and only focus on the “positive/healing” aspects of the inner work. I’ve decided I don’t “have” to know or see the winding down of the “powers that were and won’t ever be”.

    I’ve had a few experiences that reinforced the wisdom of my own self/body. Which reinforced that I don’t need/have to listen to anyone else’s opinion of what I should do. I’ve learned that I don’t have to accept an entire book or article, that all I need to do is pick out the pieces I resonate with… and that’s it. It all sounds like common sense, and yet, I’m getting the hang of the experience of it now.

    I’m also realizing my “dreams” are most likely clearing out/transmuting all the unconscious stuff in me. I’m still that “observer” in the dream, and most of my dreams are dark in lighting, which says “unconscious” to me.

    My Dad, surprisingly, has been open to me challenging his “fears”. I feel it’s actually helpful to him for me to point out that his needs are met and there’s nothing to fear at all… so stop it (hehe!).

    Wherever I go, people are much more open in conversation. They talk about their intuition, their desire for positive changes, and they’re all receptive to what I have to share. I don’t go into a full out Ascension talk, only a piece of what I feel would be helpful for them to move forward on their own path.

    On a side note, the past couple weeks I’ve been getting up/waking MUCH earlier than I’ve ever done willingly (lol). I realized a couple days ago that my body (and my cat’s) is already in synch with daylight savings.

    I’m definitely taking advantage when I’m able of this “time”. I’m grateful for it. And hopefully we can all help each other through our experiences with love and patience.

    Much Love, Light, and Blessings,
    Chrysalis… ready to fly…

  7. Hi Denise. Thanks for your great article. I am rather confused though, as I seemed to go through these symptoms from 2000-2008 when I was forced to give up work in the end through such severe symptoms that started in 1998. I did get diagnosed with Lyme disease and chronic fatigue, and also had morgellons from 2001-2003. Some say morgellons is in fact ascension symptoms but I am unsure?

    I had to change my diet and lifestyle radically, after which I got better to about 95% functioning now unless I deviate from an organic diet etc. So my question is….how do I know if those were ascension symptoms back then, and if not, why am I not getting any significant symptoms now?

    It’s frustrating for me, as I don’t know whether all those horrific symptoms that floored me were ascension-related or disease-related/caused by chemtrails, and so I have no idea whether I am ascending or not, as nothing major seems to be happening health-wise now but did back then. My knowledge has expanded a lot since then, and I do feel I have advanced, but at the same time it doesn’t feel like I am ready to ascend at all, as I don’t feel completed ‘connected’.

    Do you have any pointers you could give me?

  8. “So my question to you is: Is it actually necessary to meditate to reach ascension? It seems from what you say that it is going to happen to us all anyway…”


    The Ascension Process is a natural, cyclical Divine process. Because of this we don’t “have to do anything” really like eat certain foods or don’t eat them etc., or “meditate” or “pray” or fast or be celibate and so on. The massive cosmic/galactic/solar energies are here now doing what they do and all we have to do is be willing to change… a lot! 😉 The more open we are to these massive transmuting, evolutionary energies, the faster and easier the Process… if one could ever call them “easy”!

    It helps consciously knowing that this is what’s been happening and still is because there’s less fear, self-doubt and confusion then. And it helps if people very much believe that changing certain habits will make their Ascension Process easier but in general, these Divine Energies simply alter, evolve everything because that’s what it’s designed to do to and for us all. So I say meditate ONLY if you enjoy doing it and honestly feel you benefit from doing so, but know that if you don’t meditate you will and are still living this Process now anyway. 😉
