Smelling Nonphysical Smoke and/or Burning Incense


I’ve noticed a lot more people recently searching for information about smelling burning’ or smelling smoke’ or constantly smelling incense burning when none is physically present.


In November 2008, I was finally energetically released from the unpleasant job of waiting and holding the energetic door open for any last-minute people who desired to get on board the evolutionary Ascension elevator. Much of 2006, all of 2007 and 2008, was this endless and painful in every way waiting and holding open that energetic “door” for people ready to leave the old lower (during 2008) and move up energetically. For me, late November 2008 was when I no longer was required to stay in that lower frequency energy waiting and holding open the energy door for others. As I was released from that lower energy level of waiting and holding open the “exit door”, I immediately started smelling burning incense and/or what I thought might be someone’s chimney smoke because it was winter. I’ve smelled it almost constantly ever since November 2008, when that huge and important completion and break-off point happened and I ascended up a few more energy Stairsteps.

I mentioned in my other article about this topic, how I would often smell burning pipe tobacco and/or burning incense back in the 1980’s and 1990’s when positive higher dimensional ET beings would make contact with me. It was one way for Them to let me know They were in the area energetically and getting ready to make contact psychically, telepathically and/or ethereally with me and whoever else was present with me at the time, which was often my mother.

Since my biological Ascension Process began in February 1999, I’ve not had this sort of contact with these old familiar ET family and friends. We’ve all moved on, ascended, evolved into new and higher states and so have They. Due to our ongoing ascensions, many of us in physical human form have energetically moved into a new higher state where we’re smelling smoke, burning incense or possibly even flowers mixed in with those smoky smells. I believe we’re smelling this now—without any of those past ETs being present—for the simple reason that WE are now what They were years and decades ago to us back in the old lower PRE-Ascension world.

I believe our currently smelling burning incense and/or smoky smells is another way we’re realizing that we are indeed the new “Earth Angels”. For many of us it’s yet another way to show us where we are now in comparison to where we were in recent months (the big transition of late 2008), years and even decades. There’s a host of other ascension clues telling us that we’re very different people today that are literally vibrating at much higher levels and faster frequency rates than we were before. One example of this is when other people vibrating lower and slower simply do not seeing us all the time when we’re out in the physical world. Or, being seen by some of them and having those people come right up to us and act like we’re old best friends despite the fact you’ve never seen them before.

We’re both attracting and repelling other people vibrating at rates lower, slower and more dense levels than where we currently are. Remember how you felt and reacted when your Guides and/or higher positive ET kin where near you?

Also, many of these strange ascension symptoms have to do with our brain halves being Rewired into an integrated, unified whole brain. There is SO much happening in our brains and brain glands (the Pineal and Pituitary glands) rapidly evolving, plus the two brain hemispheres literally being Rewired, that it’s perfectly normal to suddenly be smelling, seeing, perceiving, hearing, feeling and sensing many new and seemingly unusual anomalies. It’s okay, it is just another of those numerous unique Ascension Process side effects.

  • Not sure how to begin, but I believe in the higher powers & spiritual being. I can tell almost when someone or something is ” there “. I’m never frightened as they mean no harm,& am sure i have a guardian angel too. Again no fear. Recently, my grandmother was in hospital with a dodgy heart,everyone was thinking the worst but not me, I’m sure its not her time yet. From that day on when I’m at home I get the strong smoky incense smell in my apartment. It’s weird because I haven’t burned joysticks for a very long time. As long as I know it’s not just me at least its sort of comforting. I think…

  • Hey Denise,
    I have a question, what does it mean to smell sage? I haven’t burnt sage in over a month. I woke up one day smelling the scent of sage. I can’t find no article to find my problem.

    Thank You,

    • Alicia,

      Because of the Ascension Process and how dramatically it’s evolving us, our bodies, brains, heart, nervous system, DNA etc., it’s common to smell different scents during different times. I’ve smelled burning sage, burning pipe tobacco, burning flowers and other scents both familiar and unfamiliar. I’ve also noted that when I’m intensely focused on something specific that I’ll instantly smell an non-physical scent of some kind. My point is that smelling certain scents is NOT always an indicator that some “spirit” — aka dead person — and/or other non-physical type of being or entity etc. is nearby and we’re perceiving it or them. It can be this but more often it’s due to the AP and our constant evolution.

      If possible, can you remember what you were thinking and/or emotionally feeling just before you smelled the non-physical sage? Sometimes doing this helps connect these strange, otherworldly dots for us with these anomalies we’re increasingly experiencing.

      • Hey, thank you for telling me this. I have a special gift also, and I always worry about having a negative spirit around me. I have been told that my ‘open’ mind is a magnet for them. I was worried about having anything “negative” around me. I honestly don’t know what else to do because sage isn’t helping my problem.

        I am still new to this ‘gift’ I am still trying to learn. The bad thing is I am the only person in my family with this gift. What advice do you have for my problem? What other advice do you have for people with my gift?

  • This morning I got a strong scent of sunscreen when I was walking around my office building. It seemed random as the chance of someone actually wearing sunscreen during winter is slim to none but I didn’t think much of it as it kind of smelled nice. Then this afternoon (just now) I was saying a little prayer for some loved ones and I saw an indigo sphere in my third eye. Then all of a sudden I heard three loud knocks. I thought it might be the cleaning crew but there was no one there. I started walking back to my desk and got the same sunscreen scent I smelled earlier today. I also awoke at 3AM this morning, but that was due to my dog.

    Are these signs of a heightening Awareness?

    Love & Light

    • “Are these signs of a heightening Awareness?”


      Absolutely and know that they will change as you change/grow so don’t limit them by expecting them to always look, sound, smell, feel etc. the same.

      It’s pretty common to have a cluster of things like what you described — visual, mind’s eye, smell, sound etc.– when 1) we’re simply growing some more and 2) when our Starfolk want to get your attention and 3)when our Higher Awareness and/or Higher Aspects of ourselves are communicating, transmitting some higher dimensional info to us down here in human form on Earth.

      What woke your dog up at 3AM? Our pets are super sensitive to the Unseen so that in itself may have been another “message” for you. ❤

  • My experience is unusual and I haven’t been able to find anything like it. It was while I was in the shower that I smelled an intense strong aroma. It was a combination of incense and sweet tobacco. It was like it was in my nostrils coming from me and while I was under the shower the water running down me turned a shade of light to medium brown and gold. I tried washing the smell out of my nose and scrub my hair and body not knowing what was happening and the colored water was not coming from the shower. Eventually the gold and brown water running over me and the aroma stopped. Can you tell me if you’ve ever heard of anything similar.

    • Mercy,

      What you’ve described is the same thing as what I’ve written about in this and other articles. It’s all related to the fact that humanity is currently evolving and very quickly all things considered and will continue to. This is “the Ascension Process”.

      As our brain glands — Pineal, Pituitary, Hypothalamus — and brain and central nervous systems and everything else goes through this compressed evolutionary Ascension Process, it naturally changes, expanded and greatly elevates our consciousness plus our Higher Awareness and other related abilities. Clairvoyantly Seeing colors and other things, beings, energies, anomalies etc. is normal with all this and is what and why you Saw nonphysical colors in the shower. The scents you smelled were indicators of these brain and brain gland and related head and Crown chakra frequency changes. There’s plenty more where this came from so be prepared to See, Hear, Smell, Feel, Sense, and Know in increasingly Higher Awareness sorts of ways, much more as the weeks, months and years roll on.

  • Hi Denise,
    I came across this article while trying to find out whether or not anyone has experienced the phenomena of smelling like incense or smoke themselves? I have had quite a few instances of this, where I will walk into a store and people around me say it smells like smoke or incense now when it didn’t before. Just recently, my roommate came into my room, sat down on my bed and said it smells like incense in the room, but I haven’t burned incense in there once. I had candles burning the night before, however. When I lived at home, my mom also would tell me often I smelled like smoke or my jacket smelled like smoke upon returning home, when I wasn’t smoking or around anyone who was smoking or in an environment filled with smoke. Any thoughts on this? I would be really interested to hear.

    • Andrea & All,

      Where there’s smoke, there’s Fire, and in our cases it’s Kundalini Fire! 😆 I jest, but really only a little. 😉

      Oftentimes when we are going through such profound Ascension related physical, energetic and DNA evolutionary changes — as we have been, are and will continue to for the rest of our lives — we smell (and/or see or hear or feel etc.) nonphysical reactions to those Alchemical changes. I used to joke that the Hot Flashes I was having that were Kundalini based and not just Menopause based (with the Ascension Process it’s hard to tell the difference) was me burning, smoldering deep inside from all the ongoing Kundalini Fire transmutations. That “joke” is closer to the truth than we’d first guess!

      Another aspect of this is that our brains are and have been and will continue to rapidly evolve thanks to the Brain Rewiring Process. The two brain hemispheres are literally being Rewired into one unified, integrated, non Dualized brain thanks to the Ascension Process. Because of this, along with the whole Body Rewiring Process, our entire endocrine system throughout both our body and brains (in our brain it’s the Pineal gland/Crown chakra, the Pituitary gland/Brow or Third Eye chakra, and the Hypothalamus gland) are evolving dramatically along with NEW DNA activations. All this and more is causing many to smell, to see, to hear, to feel, to know with Higher Awareness things that were out of reach to us before this evolutionary process.

      I’ve had many physical level encounters and meetings with positive higher dimensional Lightbeings and ETs over the decades and typically I would almost always smell some beautiful scent when they were within my space energetically. Those smells most commonly have been flowery scents, roses, burning incense, sweet pipe tobacco and other scents I couldn’t clearly discern because they smelled like combinations of many of these things. In other words, higher frequency, higher consciousness Beings and Humans give off a unique Energy Signature and this is increasingly easy to perceive now that humans are rapidly evolving themselves. Much of what we’re smelling (and also seeing clairvoyantly) are our own inner Ascension related changes. 🙂

  • My family and I noticed a few days ago that the bedroom of my parents smelled-smells incense… I was the unfaithful one trying to find a logical excuse to this strange event! My mother as an orthodox interpreted the event with the “nonphysical” way claiming its a “message” from heaven and all these thoughts. I dont know what to believe is there any logical explanation to the fact? Is it a good sign for my family and I ?
    Thanks, Dennis

    • Dennis,

      In the beginning when someone smells positive nonphysical scents like flowers, roses, burning incense etc., it’s often a higher frequency, higher dimensional Being(s) making their presence known to the human(s) in the physical dimension. However, as a human(s) in the physical dimension evolves/ascends, they themselves begin to smell, to perceive more nonphysical scents and smells due to their simply evolving or “ascending”. This same business applies to clairvoyantly Seeing nonphysical things, beings, lights, energies etc. and all of this and so much more, is due to the person evolving which causes all sorts of NEW perceptions, feelings, awareness, experiences, visions and so on. It’s all the same thing and more and more people are now experiencing this and other common Ascension related “phenomena” and “anomalies”. It’s actually just evolving consciousness. 😉 Welcome to the Grand Evolutionary Party. 🙂

  • This morning while in my kitchen I began smelling as if sage were burning. I knew I hadn’t smudged in over a year. By mid day the smell began to become stronger. By dinner time the smell became even stronger. I asked a family member if they could smell it and they said no. A little while later I was out in my backyard, again the smell was all around me as if it followed me outside. As a Reiki Master I know that those on the other side can reach out to us. I am also wondering if the recent Super Moon a couple of nights ago has anything to do with this strong smell that seems to permeate wherever I am today,

    • Carol,

      What I’ve discovered over time living with this Ascension symptom myself is that there’s so many ongoing evolutionary changes taking place in our brains and brain glands — Pineal, Pituitary, Hypothalamus — and that continues changing our brains by reconnecting (the Brain Rewiring Process) the two hemispheres (old Duality world with matching Duality consciousness), plus the ongoing changes to our brain “trinity” glands.

      Quite often during the arrival of another huge Energy Wave (higher Light), my sense of smell goes through yet another change. Sometimes certain scents become super amplified to me (only me) to the point of it becoming difficult to deal with sometimes! Every time I smell these nonphysical scents, I’m positive they’re physical but they never are so it’s usually back to our changing brains and those three main brain glands and the Pineal (Crown Chakra) and Pituitary (Brow or 3rd Eye Chakra). There’s SO MUCH higher frequency Light Energies (the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Eclipses, ‘Wave X’ etc. etc.) and it all comes into the body through the Crown Chakra and down into our physical head/skull/brain/brain glands and down further to our High Heart (Thymus gland). All that causes changes to all of our senses, old and NEW. 🙂

  • Hi, you might be able to give me some insight into something which is happening to me currently.
    My life has in recent years been quite simple – working through my health problems, various abdominal aches and pains combined with my spiritual practice of cherishing others and various prayers, as a student of the Buddhist teacher Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
    Just in the last couple of weeks though, I have been having a strange new experience which I am not really happy about as it is interfering with my life.
    I started to connect ‘spiritually’ with a woman who I do not know in life and shared some fairly pure loving feelings. Nothing too unusual or troubling there. But then it intensified until I was completely and quite absurdly ‘in love’ and my ‘energy’ was doing things quite different from usual, disturbing my practice and I experienced some intensely unpleasant things.
    With great effort I have, extricated myself from being in love as I wanted to break this disturbing connection, but there is still something odd taking place between us which I cannot stop and which interferes with my ‘energy’ and causes me some disturbance. As a side effect I also constantly smell burning incense like strong nag champa and I never burn incense.
    You would then explain this as part of a process of spiritual ascension which is an energetic shift in consciousness and this lady acts as a catalyst for me?
    Mainly I’m interested in cherishing others but I am open minded to these other things!

    • Stephen,

      Based on what you’ve said, it sounds to me like the woman isn’t the real issue nor the catalyst for what you’ve experienced, but the opening of your Heart is. 😉 Your High Heart being activated to evolve and expand etc. goes along with numerous other Ascension related symptoms or side effects, such as the smelling of nonphysical smoke or burning incense. Smelling nonphysical smoke is due to compressed evolutionary changes taking place in our brains (the two hemispheres being Rewired to be more integrated, less separated) and also in the brain glands — Pineal, Pituitary and Hypothalamus. Those changes alone are causing people to clairvoyantly see and hear and feel and perceive all sorts of new things, beings, energies etc. that they were unaware of prior.

      Back to your High Heart trigger or activation.

      You said you’re mainly interested in cherishing others… and you’ll do that and much more the greater your High Heart becomes. You’ll feel and know things in NEW, higher awareness sorts of ways so this is just the start of this Process. Know that millions of people are going through these complex changes and that they’re affecting each of us in our own unique ways. With an open mind and an activated High Heart the world is going to be a great place to be creative in! 🙂


  • For the last few weeks I have been smelling a weird smell which seems to come from me. It can sometimes be a rotting veg smell but sometimes turns into a smoky incense smell. I put perfume on and can smell it for about an hour and then this other smell overtakes it. If I have been in a room for a while and then leave, when I walk back in I can smell it strong. I shower twice a day and it does go for an hour or so but always returns. My Husband and friends say they cannot smell anything. I am getting a bit paranoid about it and worry I may be sick. I have always been spiritual and have smelt when spirit is near, such as violets, cigarette smoke but never anything like this which seems to be eminating from me or is following me about.

    • Susy,

      I’ve had this too and it’s changed recently within me which tells me that more DNA and chemical/hormonal etc. changes have taken place. I too have wondered if anyone else can actually, physically smell what I’m smelling coming from my body but I doubt it. Just like smelling the nonphysical burning incense and/or smoke, others don’t smell it because 1) it’s nonphysical and 2) it’s due to changes taking place within our DNA, brains, central nervous systems, chakras and just about everything else. This is no different than when people who are not clairvoyant suddenly start Seeing nonphysical, other dimensional things, beings, points or balls of Light, portals and so on. Our brains and the glands in our brains are evolving which causes us to perceive more than we did before.

      Since April of 2015 my physical body is going through another level of change comparable to when the biological/physical level Ascension Process started for me in 1999. Sudden and intense in other words and I wasn’t expecting it but there ya go! So I’ve been trying to cope with these 2015 DNA and other energy related changes effecting my physical body like crazy this year. I know many others are going through this now too, in their own unique ways.

      The best advice I can give you now about this is to not worry about it. You know you’re “clean” so think of this as inner body changes taking place within your DNA and brain and Pineal and Pituitary glands and the High Heart Thymus gland too. Lots of inner and outer changes taking place this year and beyond for many. 🙂


  • About 2 weeks ago, I was in my apartment looking through a bad when I suddenly got an overwhelming dry feeling in my throat. I then started coughing and literally saw smoke come out of my mouth as the room suddenly started to smell of flowery incense. Do you have any idea of what that could mean? I’ve also been one to suddenly smell things, but as soon as I become aware of the scent it disappears. Usually the scents are connected to memories though – someone’s perfume, the smell of sunscreen, a certain food etc.

    • Megan,

      Sounds like it may have been an old energy block unblocking then followed by the smell of flower incense indicating the open flow of energy in you in some specific area — probably the Throat chakra as most females have been closed there — no “voice” in the world etc.

      You know how sometimes people clairvoyantly See nonphysical things, beings, dead humans and such in their peripheral vision and as soon as they turn their heads to look at it directly it disappears? This same sort of thing can happen with smelling nonphysical scents, especially if they’re being created by a higher dimensional being like a positive ET, an Ascended Master, an Angelic being etc. The second the person smells a scent and they start thinking (there’s you’re clue! 😉 ) the smell disappears. The trick is to expand ones abilities to see without looking directly; to feel without focusing the old left brain intellect; to hear without focused listening and/or thinking. In other words, one needs to become very receptive and open to See, Feel, Hear, Sense in higher, more refined ways and that is accomplished by using the High Heart, not the mind/brain/left brain intellect.


  • Hi Denise, I too am smelling incense burning, sometimes its thick and chokes me up… I was starting to worry something sinister was happening within my body,,,, Decided to Google just to see what would come up and got your page,,,, I am a spiritual person and can except what you are saying although I don’t understand fully. No one else around me can smell this,

    • Rosemary,

      It’s one of the many Ascension Process symptoms or side effects and has to do with how dramatically our brains and brain glands — Pineal, Pituitary, Hypothalamus and the corresponding Chakras, Brow and Crown etc. — have been and still are “ascending” or evolving. The two brain halves (the old Duality in physicality) are being Rewired into a unified whole so that we can perceive, see, feel, be higher frequency, Unified Beings that exist beyond Duality.

      Due to these many changes in our bodies and brains and of course the corresponding Chakras, many of us have been smelling NON-physical scents for many years, the most common is smelling NON-physical smoke and/or burning incense or a combination of the two. I too used to smell it so strongly that it would choke me and make my eyes tear. That’s pretty potent for something that’s not even there physically! I still will often check the house to see if something is burning when I smell strong smoke smells and there’s never anything physically causing what I’m smelling. Over the years these scents are slowly changing somewhat too and just become weird smells that I can’t describe. The great news is that the length that I smell these NON-physical scents is greatly shrinking compared to 5, 6, 8 years ago. This Ascension symptom can be a real pain after a while but knowing that it’s caused by our evolving body and brain halves being Rewired to be able to embody vastly higher and faster Light Energies/frequencies makes the transitional suffering worth it all. 😉

      I hope you’ll keep reading through my old articles/posts here at TRANSITIONS and also at HighHeartLife
      because there’s a lot of helpful information about the Ascension Process, its many symptoms and other related topics.

  • That is funny… A few weeks ago I just went out of my home office to get something to drink, when I came back to my office I suddenly started smelling cigarette smoke and nobody smokes in our house. I was wondering where this smoke smell came from. Another occurrence and I really don’t know what to make out of it, but once I went out for the evening and when I came home and opened the door I got hit with a disgusting smell… I never smelled our home like this! Convinced me that something must be burning. In panic I checked every electronic device but nothing was burning or smoking… I opened all the windows and waited a while, until I smelled the normal familiar scent of our home… I wonder what that was about? I mean smell that is disgusting out of your own home???

    • Thank you Denise,

      It was undefinable. At first when I entered the house it smelled like in a mortuary. At least that was the first thought. After that I got another incense that smelled like something was on fire and started burning inside the house. But I did not find anything, so I opened all windows and soon the smell was gone. I certainly never smelled that before!

      What could it be?

      • Tanja,

        No fear, just take the info and discard what does not apply to you. 🙂

        Firstly, the smelling of burning incense and/or smokey smells like chimney smoke etc. has to do with the major evolutionary changes (the Rewiring) happening in our brain, brain halves, and the endocrine glands in our brains — Pineal, Pituitary and Hypothalamus. But, I must add that also due to our Ascension related changes, people often also come under attack from negative nonphysical, nonhuman beings/entities from the 4D Astral plane. These attacks will sometimes manifest physical scents that we easily smell. They can smell like shit, like death, decay, and like a combination of any or all of these horrible smells. Living humans can even produce negative smells in our homes by them just thinking hateful, negative thoughts and/or emotions towards us… and vice versa of course.

        But, when one is being attacked by more developed nonphysical, nonhuman beings such as demons, then these smells are extremely potent and specific. During those years that I was under demonic attack I repeatedly smelled–usually around 3AM to 3:30 or 3:45AM–the strong smell of what smelled to me to be burning tires or rubber with other toxic chemicals mixed in. It was horrible and the same exact scent every single time this demon would attack me at night at that time. There was also a sound that went along with all this but I’ll save that for another article or book.

        This is why I wanted you to tell me exactly what you smelled first. It sounds like you’re fine and safe and just possibly had some random little something wafting through your house. This is more common than people would ever guess! Random little negative critters or bit on the move due to all the Light coming in over these many Ascension years. Envision your house and your entire property constantly protected by a dome or pyramid or tube or whatever symbol you prefer, of Divine Source Light. See it, feel it, and know that it is there all the time protecting you, your family, your pets and property.


    • Thank you so much Denise!

      That helped me a lot to understand the smells! I remember one time before my Kundalini manifestations that when I stood beside my husband that he mentioned to me that it suddenly smelled like something around him. I don’t recall what he smelled, he smelled his arms but couldn’t figure out where the smell came from.
      I would be very interested in the sound that you described in this post, because sometimes during the night when my Kundalini energy becomes stronger and works on the body felt as electric currents and vibrations on and off in the left big toe and around me left face side, I can hear something that comes along with this. It starts as pressure building around the left face side, then it feels like an energy tube and cool breezes are entering my left ear, in the same moment I hear sometimes crunching and cracking noises inside my ear or head… Not sure what fits better. And every night now I experience something that I would describe as this pattern: Pressure building on left ear, pressure entering left ear, with feeling of air currents around the head. Then pressure builds inside of head, the next moment and it always startles me when this happens, I suddenly hear a very loud PING sound right beside my bed. It sounds like the bulb of the lamp short circuited or something crashed against the bulb or something. Even though the lamp is off… It happens every night and sometimes that PING sound is so loud that it makes me jump a little bit. It don’t know what it is, but it started recently and now every night.

      I will definitely try what you suggested with the Pyramid formed of divine light and I also pray to god every night to protect me during the night.


  • Me, too. I woke up the other night and smelled smoke in my room. It was only in my bedroom and nowhere else in the house. This is the first time, that I can remember, this happening.

    • I’ve had the incense/smoke smell off and on for years and thanks to you, Denise, I was able to realise that I wasn’t going crazy or getting a brain tumor! On the topic of demon stinks though, just a few days ago my roommate came home sick after weeks in camp and brought the most terrible smell of burning flesh with him. It stunk up the area near his bedroom for two days, then dissipated after I did a clearing. Time for a new roommate!

  • Denise, I’ve been smelling smoke too! I thought it was my Aunt who passed, she comes around to alert me when someone in our family is having a rough time. All the other times she’s contacted me there was no smoke. She was my best guess as to the smoke smell coming from nowhere. This make perfect sense. Thank you!

  • FOR 3 YEARS. After extensive MRI’s, CAT Scans, sinus surgeries, X-Rays….It turns out to be ALLERGIES! I smelled smoke for 3 years. At first it wasn’t odd since I am a fireman. So I discounted it. Up until I transferred to a specialty station that no longer handles structure fires. Maybe the smell was stuck in my turnout gear? Nope, Got new gear issued to me and there it was again. So off to specialists I go. In short, an over the counter allergy medication known as fexofenadine (ALLEGRA) without the pseudoephidrine, solved everything! I just so happened to borrow some from my engineer when I forgot my traditional/antihistamine medication of choice (Claritin & Zyrtec). I tried all other allergy meds in the past and over looked the Allegra stuff due to the cost and the ignorance that “all allergy and sinus meds are the same”. Well it took a couple of doses for me to realize that I no longer smelled the smoke. After my second dose, I could almost time it to when the smoke smell would start to come back. In the beginning, I smelled a campfire-like smoke along with the burning eyes. After the fexofenadine, the smoke smell morphed to cigarette-like smell then ultimately to paper or lint-like burning smell. After 6 days of taking the allergy meds, the smell of burning has gone away. I can still sense when the medication is wearing down, when I start to smell a hint of smell like a hot dry summer day. DRINK A BUNCH OF WATER on this stuff. Not saying that this is the cure, since I don’t dare discontinue taking the allegra yet. However, it has given me back my sanity. The guys at work razzed me about it for years saying it was my brain cells spontaneously combusting! I hope this info helps someone. I would try each med until I found the one that worked. I imagine that each of us have a different reaction to the various OTC allergy meds, name brand to generic. Give it a shot! I CAN FINALLY SMELL THE ROSES!!!

The guys at work razzed me about it for years saying it was my brain cells spontaneously combusting! I hope this info helps someone. I would try each med until I found the one that worked. I imagine that each of us have a different reaction to the various OTC allergy meds, name brand to generic. Give it a shot! I CAN FINALLY SMELL THE ROSES!!!”

      Jonathon Jones,

      I’m glad you solved your smelling smoke all the time problem, good for you.

      From what you’ve said I’m certain you just got lost and stumbled into TRANSITIONS due to searching for possible answers to your smelling smoke business. I’m glad you’ve found something that works for you. If it’s connected to what I’m talking about — the evolutionary Ascension Process — it’ll return no matter what meds you take. If it doesn’t return, then I doubt you’ve been experiencing the Ascension Process.

      Happy Trails,

  • Dear Denise
    After reading this post today, I felt so compelled to share with you this smell phenomenon specially today especially. In 2006, A couple of times I used to smell so strongly a sudden strong waft of burunt cigarette (or actually tobacco as you mentioned precisely) at my home but then I was not aware of such paranormal occurance of Smell. I just disregarded it because there is no one in our family of 6 who ever smokes. But I used to be surprised that somebody in our neighbourhood who if smokes,will the smell ever come in my farthest and innermost bedroom. But since 19th November, 2008 till today, I am smelling marigold smell and other flowery smell around me from nowhere. The smell varies from marigold, incense sticks, rose, burunt tobacco, sandalwood or pure herbal smell. Last month or early this month, at 5:00 am , I woke up suddenly and there I myself was smelling of marigold. And now today while I am writing this, its been half an hour , I have been smelling of mixed flower plus incense smell which is making my nose saturated and my head somewhat dazed. On couple of earlier occasions few days back my hand kept on my cheek while working on computer would start smelling of marigold. Please help me know what could be the origin of this smell in me or around me? Do people around us also smell the same from us when we are around them?

    • Algen,

      What a really great question and thank you for asking it. Often times it helps me to have people ask questions like this because that focuses me on specific topics. I just don’t often think to even share some of these anomalies, these ascension symptoms and huge changes we’re experiencing at TRANSITIONS, which is terrible and ridiculous! So…thank you. 🙂 I’m going to write a full post about this one topic as it’s that important for us to realize and remember.


    • The date of which i am responding to this is 10/07/2017. I have been also experiencing the smell of incense, my first encounter with this was in 2013 of which at that time we lived in Sacramento and at that time I assumed that my neighbors were burning incense or smoking cigarettes I would go outside and see no one smoking so I assumed that the smell was coming from someone else’s house I would ask my wife if she smelled the same thing but she would always respond by telling me know she didn’t, Now we live in Vegas In a new house and still I have this fragrance of incense that covers me at times now no longer at home but in random other places as well. I reading this peace it stir more questions then I saw Algen’s response asking the question do other people smell the same thing when there around us I myself always ask her when the presence of the incense odor comes upon me and she always says she does not smell it. Mind you she does smell me when i come back from an hour session from the gym. I used to be really worried about this now I’m just attempting to understand this.
