When a person begins the spiritual journey they will go through different experiences of awakening. As each person is different and reacts differently to spiritual awakening, the time frame and Spiritual Awakening Symptoms will vary from one person to the other. Spiritual awakening can take days, years or even next life till the awakening process is completed.
Before getting to know the Spiritual Awakening Symptoms or Spiritual Awakening Signs and one needs to have an idea on what is Spiritual Awakening, why one needs Spiritual Awakening and the Spiritual Awakening Process.
Basically Spiritual awakening refers to a shift in person’s awareness, accepting of reality which had been previously not realized. The result of such realizations is in the recognition of oneness with all of existence. During the Spiritual Awakening Process practice Yoga, Meditation, Chant mantras and attend Spiritual classes. This is very important in this process as it helps to build the framework to support you and guide your energy throughout the awakening process. The framework will help you to accept and appreciate the changes that’s coming, the change that’s happening, and the change that you are going to have.
You realize the Spiritual Awakening Symptoms at multiple levels–heart, body, mind, and subtle energy levels. The soul comes forward, and you’re irreversibly changed. Listed below are the few most important Spiritual Awakening Symptoms and Signs
- Changes inside you
One can’t explain it but you feel different. You even have the sensation to have become a new person, each time you have the feeling that you are getting closer to your truth. This feeling fills you with deep happiness, as you get closer and closer to who you want to be (or who you really are). At that same time, it panics you, as you have fled from your comfort zone, in which society had put you on, and think it was easier before, in the well-known state. But now that you have fled from the illusion state, and that you have dropped the mask, and so your blinders are gone forever, you sense you can see everything much more clearer. The world has now a new color and a new taste, simply because you now look at it with new eyes.
Most people experiencing a spiritual awakening have also changed their job or career. If you haven’t, you probably have a deep burning desire to. You’ll want to be called to step up and be more. The Cosmos Loves hales a hearty expansion!
- Feel the need to be alone or with new people
Progressing spiritually can be a painful process, as not everybody around us will evolve at the same speed. Very often, we grow ourselves following a certain incident or encounters, but it is not necessarily the case for our family and friends.They stay the same. Our vibration becomes higher, and as a result, when we see them, we have a feeling of discomfort, therefore, we then prefer being alone than being drained by negative people. We look for new people, more in alignment with who we really are and our new energy. Naturally, we are attracted to these new people, who makes us feel good and energized. We connect with them directly, even virtually, as we are on the same wavelength. We often feel better with them than our own family or friends that we have known for long. That’s because this time the association is from soul to soul. You see each other, and you are of the same vibration. It’s a heart and soul association which is less likely to be ruled by the ego.
A lot of things that you used to do before, are of no interest to you anymore, you need meaning in your life now, you need to have a purpose, a goal when you wake up. You also need to do a job that is meaningful. You can’t imagine yourself doing a job that wouldn’t contribute to the well-being of the world.
- Desire to eat healthier and take care of your body
There is a profound sense of clarity.This level of clarity can take on surprising levels of sensitivity for many people and we discover that our body is the temple of our soul. To keep our body fit, we want to become light and hence we must eat light. Raw foods are filled with light energy and high nutrition . Most people who are experiencing a true spiritual awakening are being drawn to healthier ways of eating. We all have our opinion on what’s best, but no one can disagree that raw, untouched, uncooked, fruits and vegetables from our Mother Earth is always the best choice.
- At Personal life
Strong disruptions may occur in our private life, the feeling that everything is falling apart around us: job, relationships, family, and friends. It looks as if one world disappears in order to make way for a new one. This is true. Our old life vanishes because we ourselves disband and step into a new life. This is sometimes a really tough truth. Many of us will change the job, family, friends, city or country in which we live. In the sense we free ourselves from our old personality and life, stepping into a new dimension. Sometimes we find out that our job is “taken” from us, the family falls apart, loss of loved ones, a near death experience or may get terminally ill and through a strange cosmic magic our whole reality re-configures, apparently against our will, freeing our survival fear. All these are part of the big Transformation. The outside follows the inner changes.
By knowing this, we will not panic, but welcome the changes observing them from the sacred and quiet place of our heart. Our friends and relatives may not accept these changes, they will think that we are going crazy and need help, they will give us advice and go against our decisions, asking us to “come down to earth.”
But note that Inner Transformation is a personal matter, which we must cross alone, until we find those like us, going through the same transformation.
- Feeling to make this world a better place
Taking care of yourself is not enough for you. You feel also to help others and make a positive impact on the world. You really feel love on multiple levels and it really is unconditional. You feel more and more kindness and empathy for others, animals and plants. You feel that your life has a meaning only when you do something for others. Even if you have impacted only one person or one animal, it makes you amazingly happy and makes you feel as if your life has become meaningful. You can’t imagine yourself dying without having impacted this world positively. The only thought of it would make you sick. You feel called to make something bigger.
Many people find that they meet a soulmate right when these feelings have begun occurring and this is often because of your spiritual growth .You are now ready to meet and attract this person. Your heart and your soul only feel fulfilled when you are of service to the world. You don’t look for gratification for what you do or getting anything back, you just want to give and love for free.
- Becoming Hypersensitivity, Creative and increased inspiration
In addition to the five physical senses that becomes more and more developed, the spiritual senses also increases (intuition, emotions, imagination, conscience and inspiration) at a high speed. Intuitions guide you more and more and you learn to listen to them. You are bombarded with ideas all the time. You are receiving images, ideas, music, and other creative inspirations often at an overwhelming rate. A fire burns in your stomach when you think about doing some things that you want to accomplish, and your enthusiasm is on fire when you think about creating. Life gets another meaning when you create.You feel alive. You feel to have realized your dreams and your mission on earth. It’s simply because your soul can finally express through your physical body.
- Deep Sense of Calm, Peace, or Serenity
Another symptom of spiritual awakening can be a profound sense of calmness or peace. The inner feeling like fear, anger, shame, guilt, and so forth that have been constantly disturbing, starts settling down. Though we often move back and forth from this calm into the old fearful ego mind, but as we continue to choose the truth of our love, the calmness grows. With that peace comes greater clarity.With the combination of love, peace, and clarity, you begin to realize at depth ,some of your errors as well as the extent of your talents. This naturally encourages changes, which may seem to arise on their own.
- Abiding Awareness
You can feel that awareness alive and moving through you, they can last a few hours or days, but then the window closes. Then you’re right back where you were. But since we are in a society lost in deep delusion, so this happens. Now, make no mistake about it, cling to illusions and lies. When the truth of our love is erupting it brings all kinds of suffering. However, these lies will not satisfy you after tasting the truth. Encourage yourself to let go into the overflow of love that’s unbridled. Engage with each barrier that comes up to stop this flow, and observe the dissolving of that obstruction. This awareness is here to stay, and with loving attention, it starts to grow and swell as your life is re-shaped in the image of love.
- Feeling of Bliss
All of the above mentioned Spiritual awakening signs and symptoms gives you a deep feeling of bliss. You feel a burn in your chest, of love towards life, of gratitude, of joy, of enthusiasm for no reason. You feel like you couldn’t be happier than you are now. Once the state of bliss is experienced, imagine living it every day. Of course, there are periods when life will bring dissatisfaction and sadness. But how you respond to those times is up to you. And, it is a choice. The path to everyday bliss must be nurtured by you.
Overall the Spiritual Awakening Signs and Spiritual Awakening Symptoms vary from Person to Person, each one need not undergo the same experiences as others. As the spiritual level of each person is different and hence they will go through different experiences of Awakening. The Time frame as well varies it can take days, years or even next life till the awakening process is completed.
