How do you know if you are having a spiritual awakening?
Well, if you are wondering and reading this, it’s probably happening to you.
Spiritual awakenings happen for different reasons, but for the same purpose universally. You are meant for better.
Worldwide, people are “waking up” at a rapid rate, unlike anything that’s been seen before. Things are happening, the world is changing and shifting, it’s affecting us and we are starting to see it.
What are the symptoms?
When people start awakening, there could be many different signs. This happens nearly the same way in everyone who wakes. You may not feel the same anymore. You may feel different, or off. It can be hard to concentrate, hard to understand what is happening. You may feel like you are going crazy. It is very common for awakenings to happen after a trauma in someone’s life. Therefore, it is very easy to think this is the reason for these new feelings and thoughts, but that isn't the case. Typically, feeling as if you have another purpose, anxiety, depression, fear, brain fog, confusion, wondering if you are doing what you should be in life, feeling you are crazy and even going to the ER are all symptoms that are universal in waking up. Know, you are safe. You are going to survive this and you WILL get through this.
Not all awakenings happen during or after trauma, however. Some will just start seeing these signs and they can just feel a change is coming and face it head-on with no issues at all. Most of the time, these symptoms happen along with other events going on in your life making you think twice about what is happening. Some people start seeing “angel numbers” everywhere or every time they look at the clock. Ex. 11:11, 12:12, 4:44, and so on. You may have so many coincidences happening or just different things happen that make you think “huh? How did that happen”. Songs coming on the radio after you were just thinking of them, etc. Those ARE signs. And chances are, you are reading this because it relates to you and these things are happening to you as well.
So. What IS a spiritual awakening anyway?
Well, an awakening can mean many things for different people. Awakening happens when the universe is trying to get you to see that there is so much more for you in this life and in this world. This world isn’t truly how it seems. Once you’ve awakened, you start to see the world differently. You recognize the hate and destruction going on. You can feel the need for love in this world. You just want to help people and make the world a better place. You’ll realize how important your family and friends truly are. You will start eliminating the negative people in your life that are wearing you down and causing you destruction mentally or otherwise.
How long will this last?
This is the tricky part. The fastest way to get out of that state is to just accept and believe what is happening to you. It won't go away. It’ll never stop once it’s started. Embrace it. Know that you are amazing and powerful and this is happening to you for a reason. There are no coincidences. Everything in your life has led you to this time in your life. All the hardships were only lessons that got you to this place. It means you are learning, you are doing it right and you are evolving as a spirit. Be calm. Relax. Meditate. Center yourself.
Now that I know what is happening, where do I go from here?
This is the part that is for you to decide. Some people continue to live their lives exactly the same. Some develop into healers, mediums, coaches, or even speakers. Some just decide to be nicer, love deeper, and be more kind and understanding. Others won’t believe any of it and therefore, will sit where they are in life. There is no correct way to move forward after this experience. You will be guided to do whatever it is that is your purpose for being here. Trust in it all. Be calm. Meditate. Relax. You’ve got this.
