We are currently living in a time where it is becoming increasingly common for people to embrace their spiritual side. Even people who prefer not to be labeled as ‘spiritual’ are open to the concept of finding their life purpose and trusting their intuition. Although we live in a world where science, logic and rationality are celebrated, many people are still left questioning the way they are being told to live their life. No matter how hard they try to avoid it, the question “Is there more to life than this?” niggles away at them.
More people are now awakening spiritually and are becoming open to the idea that there could be more to life than just the material world. Many people want to take back control of their life and escape the norm imposed on them by society, or what’s dictated to them by television, magazines, movies, and social identifications.
The enormous worldwide success of ‘The Secret’ has demonstrated that many people are ready to embrace universal laws and are increasingly searching for answers. They want to truly know happiness - and want to live a life which they create for themselves. Their consciousness is growing and the meaning of life is changing; they have new aspirations and inspirations, coupled with the desire to change themselves and the world around them.
So what is Spiritual Awakening and how may it be affecting you? I’ve noticed that many of my friends, colleagues and clients are experiencing this so called ‘ascension’ but are having difficulty understanding what is happening to them and why they are feeling the way they do!
The subtle energy shifts on the planet are raising your vibration during this process, and this can have an enormous impact of you physically. It is also a personal journey that is different for each person, but here are some common themes.
🌻 Emotional rollercoaster.
You may find yourself more emotional and tearful than you were previously. You may burst into tears randomly over the smallest thing, you may have a stronger connection when watching or reading the news, or you may feel more sentimental than ever before! You may also find yourself acting more aggressively or angrily towards other people. Some days you may feel depressed, yet other days you find that you’re bubbling with happiness! You are feeling the full range of emotions, which change rapidly and it can be overwhelming and draining. The best thing to do is to sit with the feelings as they come, and be aware of them…this period will pass.
🌻 Stronger connection to everything and everyone (humans, animals, nature, the planet and universe).
You may notice that you have a deep appreciation for all of nature, are aware of the finer details of the great outdoors, such as colours and shapes. You start to enjoy the seasons more and you develop a stronger connection with animals. You’re changing and you’re starting to accept things for what they are. You feel at one with all living beings and nature. You understand the impact of each thought, word and action that you have on the rest of the world.
🌻Changes in energy levels.
You may notice that your energy levels are not consistent. One day you are bouncing off the walls, yet another day you can’t even get out of bed! Sleep or rest when you’re feeling tired and flow with the energy when it comes. Try and eat healthily, exercise as much as you are able and try not to stress or feel guilty. Know that things will stabilise, this is just a time where the energy is integrating.
🌻 A feeling that something has changed within you.
It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly how, but you start to feel different. Although you’re aware that you may not look any different on the outside, you know that something has changed internally. Your old ways are falling by the wayside and the real you is starting to emerge. You may feel scared as you step out of your comfort zone, but also you know you are getting closer to your truth.
🌻 Sudden awareness of recurring patterns or relationships.
You may have been living out the same repeating life patterns for years, but you suddenly can spot them a mile off! It’s like you have total awareness for what it is being shown to you; the lesson you have to learn. You may have noticed that you keep attracting negative partners, or have a history of abandonment or betrayal in relationships, from family members, friends or work colleagues…but finding awareness is the first step. Once you can identify the pattern, you can eradicate it, change it and heal it.
🌻 Food intolerances, allergies and cravings.
As you are becoming more sensitive to energy, your body may start to react to foods you have always eaten or you may start to crave something different. The intolerances and allergies may not be permanent so remove them from your diet for a few months and try them again at a later time. The cravings may be what your body needs so go with it and trust your body to communicate with you.
🌻 A desire to ‘find yourself’.
You may find that although your material needs are being met, you still have a longing for more. You are starting to question who you really are and are noticing that your current life may not have been a conscious choice and is more of a by product. Before you can consciously choose, you may find yourself stripping away layers to reconnect with yourself, the ‘spiritual you’, You’re asking more questions about your life purpose, the universe and other civilizations. You don’t want to do what others expect of you - you want to be happy and free.
🌻 An increase in occurrences of coincidence.
Your life is becoming filled with synchronicity, and you start to notice that positive people and beneficial circumstance appear exactly when you need them to. You notice how life is perfectly orchestrated and answers to your questions are revealed to you through signs and messages. You are attracting positivity into your life because your energy and vibrational state are higher. Synchronicity is a sign that you are on the right track and that you are aware of these miracles happening around you. The more you notice and the more you show gratitude, the more they appear!
🌻 Quicker manifestations.
Spiritual awakening raises your vibration. This involves a release of blockages, which in turn allows abundance to flow to you. Being in alignment with a higher vibration results in quicker and more beneficial manifestations to be received by you. Be aware of your thoughts and choose carefully what you want for your highest good.
🌻 A change in behaviour, how you spend your time, who you want to share your time with, or a desire to change your job or direction.
You have become aware of everything that doesn’t feel right in your life. You feel ready for a big change and are searching for a life of deeper fulfillment, purpose and happiness. You may find different ways to spend your time and may not enjoy things you previously did as much anymore. New things may interest you so just be open to what comes your way and do more things that you enjoy.
You may also find that you feel that you’ve outgrown some people, and aren’t so happy in their company. You’re at a higher vibration to them, so spending too much time with them becomes uncomfortable and draining. You may prefer solitude, or need to surround yourself with people who are more in alignment with your new energy. You are naturally attracted to people who make you feel good and have a stronger heart and soul connection.
🌻 You want to avoid superficial things, lies, illusion and hypocrisy.
People and places may not interest you any more, and may make you feel quite depressed. You are on a quest to find authentic things that make your heart sing, so listen to this and follow your heart.
🌻 You have a deep compassion about suffering in the world, and the need to make the world a better place.
You may have despair and sadness about suffering on the planet and feel responsible for it. You want to help others and have a positive impact on the world. You feel more compassion and empathy for others. You also want to do a job that contributes to the wellbeing of the world.
🌻 Hypersensitivity and increased inspiration.
You may have increased intuition, emotions, imagination, conscience and inspiration and may be being bombarded with ideas and creativity. You also understand that your emotions are your internal compass to guide you in the right direction. They indicate which vibration you hold. Living a life of fear is the worst thing that you can do because you create reality based on your thoughts and attract what you give attention to. Make decisions based on love and trust. You will feel negative emotions if you are not alignment with your soul’s purpose.
During this time of Spiritual Awakening, change and growth are taking place; so if you are experiencing discomfort this is due to your increased resistance to it. Know that everything is exactly as it should be and you are having the human experience of growth. Let go...and go with the flow. Things in your life are changing for the better and you are aligning with your life path. So trust the journey, and enjoy it.
