Symbols - What does heaven look like


Ascent and ascension describe the symbolic ascent through the levels and layers – vibrationally towards the aether level.

Ascension can be via direct ascent and symbolic flight, via ladders or symbolic stairs, or it can be symbolically as a rather slow painful ascent in a spiral direction round your soul cone, often symbolically shown as a hill [or mountain].
