Ascension Plateau’s usually happen as a gap between stages of spiritual growth. It’s part of the rhythm of the ascension cycle, like exhaling or sleeping between periods of wakefulness. Because we are in a physical body, there are steps we must take to absorb what we develop and learn, before we are on to the next phase. It is what our brains need sometimes in order to capture the mundane, so we don’t lose touch with physical 3D in the process of attaining 5D coherence. I like to think of it like a plane that is ascending in altitude. If it shot right up without acclimating to changes in atmospheric pressure, the turbulence and disorientation would likely cause a crash. So, it has to be done in stages.
