A spiritual awakening is not a one time occurrence, but an ongoing process by which an individual becomes becomes aware of their spiritual nature, and mindful of their connection to the infinite.
As spiritual souls, we have an eternal in nature. But when we incarnate into human bodies, we can forget our spiritual nature. When we experience a spiritual awakening, we become aware of our spiritual nature, and begin to understand that they are indeed eternal, spiritual beings. As a result of this process, people will often experience a few specific symptoms.
Not everyone will experience each of the following symptoms, but will experience at least a few. Everyone experiences a spiritual awakening differently. Below are the 12 Symptoms of a Spiritual Awakening:
An increasing interest in metaphysical or religious subjects
Often, those experiencing a spiritual awakening will become deeply interested in metaphysical subjects and phenomenon, such as psychic abilities, out of body experiences, etc. For some people, traditional religion may be a bigger draw than metaphysics. As one spiritually awakens, they will seek to understand their newly found awareness, and these interests can help them understand their spiritual awakening.
Unusual sensations at the crown of the head
The crown of your head is the location of your crown chakra; your crown chakra is your connection you the source energy. When you feel crown buzzing, or experience other unusual sensations, it’s an indication that you are connected and receptive to the energy of the universe.
Ringing in the ears
Some who experience a spiritual awakening may have a ringing in the ears, which often happens when during the process of ascension. Just as dogs can hear high pitched sounds, a ringing in the ears may indicate that you are becoming more attuned to higher frequencies.
Feelings of vertigo
As our spiritual energy ascends, you may feel off balance. Deep breathing meditation can help ground you and correct the experience vertigo.
Shivering not due to illness
Shivers can be a sign that you are connected to source energy, and that you are “buzzing” with energy.
A more relaxed attitude
When you understand that you are an infinite and eternal being, you are able to see things from a higher perspective. The issues and problems in your life can be seen for what they are, temporary.
Increasing compassion and empathy
During a spiritual awakening, you can become aware of your connection with humanity, and as a result, are more likely to interact with increasing love and acceptance.
Receiving the 11:11 call
1111 is often regarded as a spiritually significant number sequence. Those experiencing a spiritual awakening often see 11:11 on a digital clock, in phone numbers, on license plates, etc. You may also see other number sequences, like 2:22, 3:33, 4:44, 5:55.
Synchronicity, or meaningful coincidences, become common place, and you see them as meaningful messages from spirit.
Acceptance of death
As you become more aware of your eternal nature, death becomes less scary. In a spiritual awakening, you may become comfortable understanding that death is a transitional state, rather than an absolute end.
Receiving and understanding spiritual messages
As you become more connected to your spiritual nature, you will become aware of the messages sent by spirit to communicate or inspire you.
This is a rare symptom that must be felt to be understood; it is a moment of total clarity, when the individual feels totally connected to everything in the Universe. Deep meditation can bring about this feeling of knowing.
