When strangers slide into my DM’s, it’s often to talk about this – the weird and wonderful things which have started happening to them since they started becoming spiritually aware.
They’ll be different for everyone, but you can pretty much guarantee that it’s not going to look like the dreamy path to enlightenment you’d once imagined. Cue the wheels of your life falling off while you’re plunged into a whole new perception of reality, without anyone there to hold your hand…
The good news is you’re not the only one.
Everyone who’s gone through a spiritual awakening will understand how you’re feeling, which is why it’s so important to have a spiritual community around you and a Spiritual Coach if you want to develop your gifts or make a career out of them.
We never stop awakening, we just unlock new levels.
You’ll get more used to the process each time and the symptoms will become more subtle – like being thirsty, having headaches, and crazy dreams where you feel like your frequency is shifting while you sleep.
However, the initial stages of awakening usually feel the most profound and life-altering. If you’re going through any of these right now, know that you’re not alone and you’re not going crazy – you’re just going through your spiritual awakening!
⋆☽ You’re more sensitive to alcohol ☾⋆
Or unhealthy food. Or drugs.
Our body is an amazing intuitive tool, and when you open up spiritually, you’ll find that you can gain accurate insights about people and situations based on what you feel.
This sensitivity can be a wonderful thing to have as an extra spiritual sense, but it’ll make you hella sensitive to any intoxicants which aren’t good for your body.
If you’ve been feeling more sensitive to certain foods and drinks, it could be a physical symptom that you’re going through a spiritual awakening.
⋆☽ You’re in a hermit phase ☾⋆
Going through a spiritual awakening can be really overwhelming, especially if you aren’t aware that it’s happening. As your energy opens up and your intuitive antenna get more sensitive to your surroundings, you may feel an inexplicable urge to hide away for a while.
Maybe you want to spend more time alone than usual because you’re finding that groups and crowds drain your energy.
Your mind and body are trying to figure out how they’re going to navigate the world with your newfound sensitivity, so going through a hermit phase is a key sign that you’re partway through an awakening.
⋆☽ Your favourite pastimes no longer appeal ☾⋆
If activities that you used to love – like shopping, partying or gaming – don’t appeal to you as much as they used to, it might be because of your spiritual awakening.
The intense shift that you’re experiencing can make other things seem dull and trivial in comparison.
How you’re changing on the inside might change what you like on the outside, as well as how you choose to spend your time. You could even regret how much time you used to spend on pastimes that weren’t nourishing you in any way, and may have been holding you back.
⋆☽ You feel different from friends and family ☾⋆
No matter how close you are with your friends and family, if you’re going through a spiritual awakening then it can be harder to connect with them.
Aside from the fact that you might be in a hermit phase, it can feel like you’re a different person now while no-one else has changed.
You might look around and notice that where you used to fit in perfectly, you’re now feeling like the odd one out. Yes, this can seem isolating, but you’re not alone and it’s a common symptom to have during a spiritual awakening.
⋆☽ You’re spiritually curious ☾⋆
What have you been Googling lately?
It’s common to want to learn more about spiritual topics such as being psychic, energy healing, near-death experiences and the cosmos as you’re transitioning through an awakening.
The fact that you’ve read all the way to the end of this article is also a pretty big clue! People who haven’t experienced a spiritual awakening yet are very unlikely to be interested in learning about what it’s like to go through a spiritual awakening.
If you’re spiritually curious right now, your Google search history might be the final confirmation that you ARE in fact going through a spiritual awakening…
☽ ☆ ☾
It’s normal to feel afraid, confused and alone during your spiritual awakening, but you will eventually adjust to life with your new heightened senses.
There are millions of other people out there going through the exact same thing, so your only job now is to find them.
I offer support and advice for people going through their awakening, so reach out if you’d like to work together and join my communities on Instagram & Facebook.
Well well well!! This is a wonderful and eye opening article! Thank you again Liz for just being so fab! Your blogs always resonate with me and I just adore you!
I believe I’ve been in my spiritual awakening for some time now. I’m sure it’s different for everyone, but how long does it last? Is it possible that I’m even more into the awakening now then I have been since it began, whenever that was🤓This last week I’ve wanted to do nothing but be myself during the day. I meditate, listen to hypnosis videos and I’m taking super detailed notes on an Academy I was blessed to do. I’d love to shout her out but I got reprimanded by someone for shouting out others so now I’m hesitant to mention names on people’s blogs, videos etc. I never want to disrespect anyone! I just love so many of you!
Ok enough out of me! I’m behind on your blogs and I’ve been dying to catch up! Now is the time.
So much love and light to you always Liz 🌬 ☮️ 💗
Thanks so much Emily!! 😊
Yes, I definitely think that awakening is an ongoing process and there’s no end date… which is why you feel deeper into it now, even more so than when you began! There is always more for us to learn and experience. The journey doesn’t stop it just gets more interesting!
I so appreciate your support of my blog and being a member of the community always 🙏🏽💕
I guess I am going through a spiritual awakening, broke up with a narcissist that was a Leo, feeling energy and something about twin flame too. I started really seeing dark energy and my life was actually in danger. I literally packed up my van and have been traveling. I am disabled and living on a fixed income. I am currently homeless due to all of this. I am seeing things so differently now, that the so called “friends” I had were not my friends at all, same with my youngest daughter. They had an affair with my ex, he had them believing his rich and trying to cash in on my life insurance policy. This is really bizarre what I have been going through since Nov. 1, 2020. I have been spending time outdoors in nature, listening to music, angel numbers, going to church, I got baptized March 28, 2021, I quit smoking medical marijuana, eating healthier, pretty much not eating meat and staying away from sugar, and processed foods. I get my energy in my head feels alert, sometimes I will feel something in my heart. I don’t know if I am going through a runner/chaser phase of my twin/ soulmate. I am literally states away from my hometown and have been to 6 different states already. I am trying to figure out who my soulmate actually is? The energy takes up my time, like it is hard to focus and concentrate on daily activities. If anyone can help me my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. thank you. I am lost and confused of what is actually going on in my life. I feel like I have lost my mind.
