How many of these 51 Spiritual Awakening Symptoms do you have?
By:Annarita1.Changing sleep patterns: restlessness, hot feet, waking up two or three times anight. Feeling tired after youwake up and sleepy off and on during the day. There is something called theTriad Sleep Pattern that occurs for many: you sleep for about 2-3 hours, wakeup, go back to sleep for another couple of hours, wake again, and go back to sleepagain. For others, the sleep requirements have changed. You can get by on lesssleep. Lately I have been experiencing huge waves of energy running into mybody from the crown. It feels good, but it keeps me awake for a long time, thensubsides. Advice: Get used to it.
Make peace with it anddon’t worry about getting enough sleep (which often causes more insomnia). Youwill be able to make it through the day if you hold thoughts of getting justwhat you need. You can also request your Higher Self to give you a break nowand then and give you a good, deep night’s sleep. If you can’t go back to sleepright away, use the waking moments to meditate, read poetry, write in yourjournal or look at the moon. Your body will adjust to the new pattern.
2.Activity at the crown of the head: Tingling, itching, prickly, crawlingsensations along the scalp and/or down the spine. A sense of energy vibratingon top of the head, as if energy is erupting from the head in a shower. Alsothe sensation of energy pouring in through the crown, described as “sprinkles”.This may also be experienced as pressure on the crown, as if someone is pushinghis/her finger into the center of your head. As I mentioned in #1, I have beenexperiencing huge downloads of energy through the crown. In the past, I havefelt more generalized pressure, as if my head is in a gentle vise. One manrelated that his hair stood on end and his body was covered with goosebumps. Advice: This is nothingto be alarmed about. What you are experiencing is an opening of the crownchakra. The sensations mean that you are opening up to receive divine energy.
3.Sudden waves of emotion. Crying at the drop of a hat. Feeling suddenly angry orsad with little provocation. Or inexplicably depressed. Then very happy. Emotionalroller coaster. There is often a pressure or sense of emotions congested in theheart chakra (the middle of the chest). This is not to be confused with theheart, which is located to the left of the heart chakra.
Advice: Accept your feelings as they come up andlet them go. Go directly to your heart chakra and feel the emotion. Expand itoutward to your all your fields and breathe deeply from the belly all the wayup to your upper chest. Just feel the feeling and let it evaporate on its own.Don’t direct the emotions at anyone. You are cleaning out your past. If youwant some help with this, say out loud that you intend to release all these oldissues and ask your Higher Power to help you. You can also ask Grace Elohim tohelp you release with ease and gentleness. Be grateful that your body isreleasing these emotions and not holding onto them inside where they can doharm. One source suggests that depression is linked to letting go ofrelationships to people, work, etc. that no longer match us and our frequencies.When we feel guilty about letting go of these relationships, depression helpsus medicate that pain.
4.Old “stuff” seems to be coming up, as described above, and the people with whomyou need to work it out (or their clones) appear in your life. Completion issues. Or perhaps you need towork through issues of self-worth, abundance, creativity, addictions, etc. Theresources or people you need to help you move through these issues start toappear.
Advice: Same as #3. Additionally, don’t get too involvedin analyzing these issues. Examining them too much will simply cycle you backthrough them over and over again at deeper and deeper levels. Get professionalhelp if you need to and walk through it. Do not try to avoid them ordisassociate yourself from them. Embrace whatever comes up and thank it forhelping you move ahead. Thank your Higher Power for giving you the opportunityto release these issues. Remember, you don’t want these issues to stay stuck inyour body.
5.Changes in weight. The weight gain in the USpopulation is phenomenal. Other people may be losing weight. We often gainweight because many fears we have suppressed are now coming up to the surfaceto be healed. We react by building up a defense. We also attempt to groundourselves or provide bulk against increasing frequencies in our bodies.
Advice: Don’t freak out, but just accept it as asymptom of where you are right now. You will release/gain the weight when allyour fears have been integrated. Release your anxiety about this. Then youmight find it easier to lose/gain the weight eventually. Exercise. Beforeeating, try this: Sit at the table with an attractive place setting. Light acandle. Enjoy how the food looks. Place your dominant hand over your heart andbless the food. Tell your body that you are going to use the food to richlynourish it, but that you are not going to use the food to fulfill youremotional hungers. Then pass your hand from left to right over the food andbless it. You may notice that the food feels warm to your hand even if the foodis cold– I like to think that the food is good for me when it feels warm andnourishing to my hand. I have also noticed that when I practice blessing thefood, I don’t eat as much. It is important not to let yourself off the hookwhen you forget to bless the food before you eat. If I’ve forgotten and I’venearly finished eating, I bless the food anyway. That way I don’t slip out ofthe habit. Another thing you can do is to stay present while eating — don’twatch TV or read. Heartily enjoy what blessings are before you.
6.Changes in eating habits: Strange cravings and odd food choices. Some find they are not as hungry as theyused to be. Or hungrier.
Advice: Don’t deny what your body tells you itneeds. If you are not sure, you might try muscle-testing before you chose afood to see if it’s what your body wants. Also try blessing the food asdescribed in #5.
7.Food intolerances, allergies you never had before. As you grow more spiritual, you are more sensitive toeverything around you. Your body will tell you what it can no longer tolerate,as if it, too, is sloughing off what doesn’t serve it anymore. You might becleansing yourself of toxins. Some people find they often have a white residuein their mouth, much like that of runners at the end of a race.
Advice: An acupuncturist told me that this filmcan be removed by sloshing 2 tablespoons of cold-pressed olive oil in yourmouth for 10-15 minutes (don’t swallow, whatever you do), then spitting it outinto the toilet — not the sink, for you just removed toxins from your body anddon’t want them in the sink. Brush your teeth and do the same. Then clean yourbrush. (Sorry this is yukky, but itworks.)
8.Amplification of the senses.Increased sensitivity.
8a.Sight: Blurry vision,shimmering objects, seeing glittery particles, auras around people, plants,animals, and objects. Some report seeing formerly opaque objects astransparent. When you close your eyes, you no longer see darkness, but redness.You may also see geometric shapes or brilliant colors and pictures when eyesare closed. Colors appear more vivid — the sky might look teal orthe grass anamazing green. Often I see grids running across the ground. As you become moresensitive, you may see shapes or outlines in the air, especially when the roomis almost dark. When your eyes are open or closed, you may see white shapes inyour peripheral vision (these are your guides).
Advice:Your vision is changing in many ways — youare experiencing new ways of seeing. Be patient. Whatever you do, do not beafraid. Hazy vision maybe relieved by yawning.
8b.Hearing: Increased or decreasedhearing. I once thought I would have to pull off the road because of thepainfully amplified sound of my tires on the freeway. Other symptoms arehearing white noise in the head, beeps, tones, music or electronic patterns.Somehear water rushing, bees buzzing, whooshing, roaring or ringing. Others havewhat is called audio dyslexia– you can’t always make out what people aresaying, as if you can no longer translate your own language. Some hear strangevoices in their dreams, as if someone is hovering near them. You can either askthe presence(s) to leave or ask Archangel Michael to take care of thesituation. Again, there is nothing to fear.
Advice: Surrender to it. Let it come through.Listen. Your ears are adjusting to new frequencies.
8c.Enhanced senses of smell, touch, and/or taste. I notice I can now smell and taste chemical additives insome foods in a rather unpleasant manner. Other food may taste absolutelywonderful. For some people, these enhancements are both delightful anddistracting. You might even smell the fragrance of flowers now and then. Manyof the mystics did. Enjoy it.
9.Skin eruptions: Rashes, bumps, acne,hives, and shingles. Anger produces outbreaks around the mouth and chin. I hada dermatitis on my extremities for several months that accompanied healing anepisode from my past. When I had worked through most of the issue, thecondition was released.
Advice: You may be sloughing off toxins andbringing emotions to the surface. When there is an issue to be released and youare trying to repress it, your skin will express the issue for you until youprocess the emotions. Work through your “stuff”.
10.Episodes of intense energy which make you want to leap out of bed and intoaction. Followed by periods oflethargy and fatigue. The fatigue usually follows great shifts. This is a timeof integration, so give into it.
Advice: Roll with the nature of the energy. Don’tfight it. Be gentle with yourself. Take naps if you are tired. Write your novelif you are too energized to sleep. Take advantage of the type of energy.
11.Changes in prayer or meditation. Notfeeling the same sensations as before. Not having the same experience of beingin contact with Spirit. Difficulty in focusing.
Advice: You may be in more instant and constantcommunion with Spirit now and the sensation may therefore be altered. You willadapt to this new feeling. You are actually thinking and acting in partnershipwith Spirit most of the time now. You may find your meditation periods shorter.
12.Power surges: All of a sudden you areheated from head to toe. It is a momentary sensation, but uncomfortable. Incontrast, some people have felt inexplicably cold. I have experienced both.More recently I experience waves or currents of energy rolling through me. Sometimesthe energy seems so intense when it first comes into my body that I feel alittle nauseated. But if I think of the energy as divine and let go of fear, Ifeel wonderful and enjoy the sensation. If you are an energy worker, you mayhave noticed that the heat running through your hands has increasedtremendously. This is good.
Advice: If you are uncomfortable, ask your HigherPower, that if it be for your best and highest good, to turn down/up thetemperature a bit.
13.A range of physical manifestations:Headaches, backaches, neck pains, flu-like symptoms (this is called vibrationalflu), digestive problems, muscular spasms or cramps, racing heartbeat, chestpains, changes in sexual desire, numbness or pain in the limbs, and involuntaryvocalizations or bodily movements. Some of us have even had old conditions fromchildhood reappear briefly for healing.
Advice: Remember what I said about seekingmedical help if you need it! If you have determined that this is not a medicalcondition, relax in the realization that it is only temporary.
14.Looking younger. Yippee! As you clearemotional issues and release limiting beliefs and heavy baggage from the past,you are actually lighter. Your frequency is higher. You love yourself and lifemore. You begin to resemble the perfect you that you really are.
15.Vivid dreams. Sometimes the dreamsare so real that you wake up confused. You may even have lucid dreams in whichyou are in control. Many dreams may be mystical or carry messages for you. Andin some dreams, you just know that you are not “dreaming” — that what ishappening is somehow real.
Advice: You will remember what is important foryou to remember. Don’t force anything. Above all, stay out of fear.
16.Events that completely alter your life: death, divorce, change in job status, loss of home,illness, and/or other catastrophes — sometimes several at once! Forces thatcause you to slow down, simplify, change, re-examine who you are and what yourlife means to you. Forces that you cannot ignore. Forces that cause you releaseyour attachments. Forces that awaken your sense of love and compassion for all.
17.A desire to break free from restrictive patterns, life-draining jobsconsumptive lifestyles, and toxic people or situations. You feel a compelling need to “find yourself” and yourlife purpose — now! You want to be creative and free to be who you really are.You might find yourself drawn to the arts and nature. You want to unclutteryourself from things and people that no longer serve you.
Advice: Do it!
18.Emotional and mental confusion:A feeling that you need to get your life straightened out–it feels like a mess.But at the same time you feel chaotic and unable to focus. See #45.
Advice: Put your ear to your heart and your owndiscernment will follow.
19.Introspection, solitude and loss of interest in more extroverted activities: This stage has come as a surprise to manyextraverts who formerly saw themselves as outgoing and involved. They say, “Idon’t know why, but I don’t like to go out as much as before.”
20.Creativity bursts: Receiving images,ideas, music, and other creative inspirations at an often overwhelming rate.
Advice: At least record these inspirations, forSpirit is speaking to you about how you might fulfill your purpose andcontribute to the healing of the planet.
21.A perception that time is accelerating.
Itseems that way because you have had so many changes introduced into your lifeat an unprecedented rate. The number of changes seems to be growing.
Advice: Breaking your day up into appointmentsand time segments increases the sense of acceleration .You can slow time downby relaxing into the present moment and paying attention to what’s at hand, notanticipating what’s ahead. Slow down and tell yourself that you have plenty oftime. Ask your Higher Power to help you. Keep your focus on the present. Try toflow from one activity to the next. Stay tuned to your inner guidance. You canalso warp time by asking for it. Next time you feel rushed, say, “Time warp,please. I need some more time to —–.” Then relax.
22.A sense of impendingness.There is a feeling that something is about to happen. This can create anxiety.
Advice: There is nothing to worry about. Thingsare definitely happening, but anxiety only creates more problems for you. Allyour thoughts — positive or negative– are prayers. There is nothing to fear.
23.Impatience. You know better, butsometimes you can’t help it. You want to get on with what seems to be comingyour way. Uncertainty is not comfortable.
Advice: Learn to live with the uncertainty,knowing that nothing comes to you until you are ready. Impatience is really alack of trust, especially trust in your Higher Power. When you focus on thepresent, you will experience miracles — yes, even in traffic.
24.A deep yearning for meaning, purpose, spiritual connection, and revelation. Perhaps an interest in the spiritual forthe first time in your life. “Constant craving”, as k.d. lang says. Thematerial world cannot fulfill this longing.
Advice: Follow your heart and the way will openup for you.
25.A feeling that you are somehow different. A disquieting sense that everything in your life feelsnew and altered, that you have left your old self behind. You have. You aremuch greater than you can possibly imagine. There is more to come.
26.“Teachers” appear everywhere with perfect timing to help you on your spiritualjourney: people, books, movies,events, Mother Nature, etc. Teachers may appear to be negative or positive whenyou are trapped in polarity thinking, but, from a transcendent perspective,they are always perfect. Just what you need to learn from and move on. By theway, we never get more than we are ready to master. Each challenge presents uswith an opportunity to show our mastery in passing through it.
27.You find a spiritual track that makes sense to you and “speaks to you” at themost profound levels.Suddenly you are gaining a perspective that you would never have consideredbefore. You hunger to know more. You read, share with others, ask questions,and go inside to discover more about who you are and why you are here.
28.You are moving through learning and personal issues at a rapid pace. You sense that you are “getting it” quitereadily.
Advice: Keep remembering that things will come toyou when they are ready to be healed. Not sooner. Deal with whatever comes upwith courage and you will move through the issues rapidly.
29.Invisible presences. Here is the woo-woostuff. Some people report feeling surrounded by beings at night or having thesensation of being touched or talked to. Often they will wake with a start.Some also feel their body orbed vibrate. The vibrations are caused by energeticchanges after emotional clearing has taken place.
Advice: This is a sensitive topic, but you mayfeel better blessing your bed and space around it before you sleep. I restassured that I am surrounded only by the most magnificent spiritual entitiesand am always safe in God’s care. Sometimes, however, the fear gets to me, andI call in Archangel Michael and/or Archangel Uriel. I don’t beat myself up forbeing afraid sometimes. I forgive myself for not always sovereign at 3:00 a.m.
30.Portents, visions, “illusions”, numbers, and symbols: Seeing things that have spiritual importance for you.Noticing how numbers appear synchronistically in your awareness. Everything hasa message if you take the time to look. I enjoy the experience of “getting themessages.” What fun!
31.Increased integrity: You realize that it istime for you to seek and speak your truth. It suddenly seems important for youto become more authentic, more yourself. You may have to say “no” to peoplewhom you have tried to please in the past. You may find it intolerable to stayin a marriage or job or place that doesn’t support who you are. You may alsofind there is nowhere to hide, no secrets to keep anymore. Honesty becomesimportant in all your relationships.
Advice: Listen to your heart. If your guidancetells you not to do something, speak up and take action. Say “no”. Likewise,you must also say “yes” to that which compels you. You must risk displeasingothers without guilt in order to attain spiritual sovereignty.
32.Harmony with seasons and cycles:You are becoming more tuned to the seasons, the phases of the moon and naturalcycles. More awareness of your place in the natural world. A strongerconnection to the earth.
33.Electrical and mechanical malfunctions: When you are around, lightbulbs flicker, the computerlocks up, or the radio goes haywire.
Advice: Call on your angels, guides, or GraceElohim to fix it or put up a field of protection of light around the machine.Surround your car with bluelight. Laugh.
34.Increased synchronicity and many small miracles. Look for more of these.
Advice:Synchronistic events tell you if you areheading in the right direction or making the correct choices. Honor these cluesand you cannot go astray. Spirit uses synchronicity to communicate to you.That’s when you begin to experience daily miracles. See #30.
35.Increased intuitive abilities and altered states of consciousness: Thinking of someone and immediatelyhearing from them. More synchronicities. Having sudden insights about patternsor events from the past. Clairvoyance, out-of-body experiences, and otherpsychic phenomena. Intensified sensitivity and knowing. Awareness of one’sessence and that of others. Channeling angelic and Christ-consciousnessenergies.
36.Communication with Spirit.Contact with angels, spirit guides, and other divine entities. Channeling. More and morepeople seem to be given this opportunity. Feeling inspiration and downloadinginformation that takes form as writing, painting, ideas, communications, dance,etc.
37.A sense of Oneness with all.A direct experience of this Wholeness. Transcendent awareness. Being floodedwith compassion and love for all life. Compassionate detachment orunconditional love for all is what lifts us up to higher levels of consciousnessand joy.
38.Moments of joy and bliss.A deep abiding sense of peace and knowing that you are never alone.
39.Integration: You become emotionally,psychologically, physically, and spiritually stronger and clearer. You feel asif you are in alignment with your Higher Self.
40.Living your purpose: You know you arefinally doing what you came to earth for. New skills and gifts are emerging,especially healing ones. Your life/work experiences are now converging andstarting to make sense. You are finally going to use them all.
Advice: Listen to your heart. Your passion leadsyou to where you must go. Go within and ask your Higher Self, “What is it you would have me do?” Watch forsynchronicities. Listen.
41.Feeling closer to animals and plants.To some people, animals now seem to be more “human” in their behavior. Wildanimals are less afraid. Plants respond to your love and attention more thanever. Some may even have messages for you.
42.Seeing beings of other dimensions.The veil between dimensions is thinner, so it is not surprising. Just stay inyour sovereignty. You are more powerful than you can ever imagine, so do notentertain fear. Ask your guides for help if you slip into fear.
43.Seeing a person’s true form or seeing loved ones with a different face — pastlife or parallel life.
44.Physically manifesting thoughts and desires more quickly and efficiently.
Advice: Monitor your thoughts. All thoughts areprayers. Be careful what you ask for.
45.Left-brain fogginess.Your psychic abilities, your intuitive knowing, your feeling and compassion,your ability to experience your body, your visioning, your expressiveness allemanate from the right brain. In order for this side of the brain to developmore fully, the left brain must shut down a little bit. Normally theleft-hemisphere’s capacity for order, organization, structure, linearsequencing, analysis, evaluation, precision, focus, problem-solving, andmathematics dominate our often less-valued right brain. What results are memorylapses, placing words in the wrong sequence, inability or no desire to read forvery long, inability to focus; forgetting what you are just about to say;impatience with linear forms of communication (audio or written formats); afeeling of spaciness, being scattered; losing interesting research or complexinformation; feeling bombarded with words and talk and information; and areluctance to write. Sometimes you feel dull and have no interest in analysis,lively intellectual discussion, or investigation. On the other hand, you mightfind yourself drawn to the sensate: videos, magazines with photos, beautifulartwork, movies, music, sculpting, painting, being with people, dancing,gardening, walking, and other kinesthetic forms of expression. You may searchfor spiritual content, even science fiction.
Advice: You may discover that if you allow yourheart and your right brain to lead you, the left will then be activatedappropriately to support you. And someday we will be well-balanced, using bothhemispheres with mastery.
46.Dizziness. This occurs when youare ungrounded. Perhaps you have just cleared a big emotional issue and yourbody is adjusting to your “lighter” state.
Advice: Ground yourself by eating protein.Sometimes “comfort food” feels right. Don’t make any food right or wrong foryou. Use your guidance to know what you need at any given moment. Take yourshoes off and put your feet in the grass for a couple of minutes.
47.Falling, having accidents, breaking bones. Your body is not grounded or perhaps your life is outof balance. Or your body may be telling you to slow down, examine certainaspects of your life, or heal certain issues. There is always a message. When Irecently broke my ankle, I understand that my ankle was taking on what I myselfrefused to deal with. And that was all of the above.
Advice: Stay grounded by taking your shoes offand putting your feet in the grass; even better, lie down on the grass withouta blanket under you. Feel the earth beneath you. Get out in nature. Slow downand pay attention. Be mindful about what you are doing. Feel your feelings whenthey come up. Stay in the present. Surround yourself with blue light when youare feeling shaky.
48.Heart palpitations. A racing heart usuallyaccompanies a heart opening. It only lasts for a few moments and means that theheart is re-balancing itself after an emotional release. I had one episode thatterrified me: I woke up in the middle of the night, my heart pounding. Ithought it was going to come right out of my chest. It only happened once andwas, I understand, a huge heart-chakra opening. But I did check it out. Thereis nothing wrong with my heart.
Advice: Remember what I said about gettingmedical attention when needed. Consult your doctor about any conditions you arenot comfortable with.
49.Faster hair and nail growth.More protein is being used in the body. Too bad we can’t tell the body where togrow the hair and where not to grow it. (Or can we? Hmmm.)
50.A desire to find your soulmate or twin flame. More than ever before, the idea that we can have arelationship that matches who we are seems more desirable.
Advice: The truth is, we have to be the kind ofperson we want to attract. We have to love ourselves and where we are right nowbefore we can attract a more “perfect” mate. The work begins at home. Here ishow I think it works: Hold the desire for this person in your heart, butwithout attachment. Expect that someday you will meet someone who is moresuited to you, but let go of any expectations as to who this will be and how itwill happen. Focus instead on cleaning up your own life and being the kind ofperson you want to be. Be happy now. Enjoy your life. Then you may see…..
51.Memories surface. Body memories,suppressed memories, images of past lives and/or parallel lives. We are healingand integrating all our “selves”, so expect to have some of these experiences.
Advice.Keep in mind that it is best to recall what only what comes to mind, leave therest alone, don’t analyze everything to death (because you will be stuck in thetape loop of infinite issues to process), and feel your feelings as they comeup. Ask for help from your guides.
