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…
