Ascension also refers to the collective process of reconnection that occurs at the end of stage two of a planet's evolutionary process.
In cabbalistic terms, awakening/ascension is the process of raising Malkuth (a.k.a. the Kingdom) back up to Kether (a.k.a. the Crown)
In Vedic terms connection with Highest Self is the meaning of the term yoga (union) and the goal of yogic practice.
In Christian terms, ascension/connection is described as
- baptism with the Holy Spirit. "I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit." Mark 1: 8 or
- the descent of the Holy Spirit, "When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened 22 and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove." Luke 3: 21-22.
