As you go through your journey of awakening, many things about you and your life start to change. There are many articles out there titled “20 symptoms of spiritual awakening” and they touch on all of the possible experiences that could be related to awakening. But at the very beginning of awakening, the signs you experience are much less in number.
They are less in number, but are far more intense and tangible. Sometimes, they may even be overwhelming to the point where it is humorous to you. When you are in the beginning phases of self-realization and self-discovery, the “symptoms” you experience are so potent that they completely transform your life.
Having a spiritual awakening is synonymous with realizing that there is more to life than you have been taught to believe. There is more to you, the universe, God, and the human experience than just paying the bills and joining the rat race. Something within you begins to detect that there is deeper meaning waiting to be discovered, and as you begin to detect this, your mind, body, and soul begin to transform.
Here are 3 main signs that you are experiencing a spiritual awakening:
1) You stop worrying so much
Life becomes more light, and fear begins to subside. You stop caring about what other people think about you. You no longer worry and stress over things like social reputation, popularity, and peer-approval, because your sense of identity comes from something much deeper than that. As you being to have a relationship with the Universe, you begin to trust it. When you trust it, there is no room left for fear.
Even your fear of death begins to subside as you begin to connect with the part of you that is timeless and eternal. You have this intuitive wisdom that somehow, everything in your life is going to unfold the way it needs to. You stop approaching the future with fear and anxiety and learn to accept and embrace life’s experiences.
2) Your interests and desires change
As you begin to awaken, you are more interested in the pursuit of knowledge, wisdom, and experience. Going out and getting hammered every weekend stops appealing to you, and you the ways you use to spend your spare time now seem useless and redundant. Netflix and video games begin to seem redundant when you realize the infinite world of potential that resides within you.
When your soul comes alive inside you, your entire lifestyle begins to change. Your diet, relationships, past times, and hobbies all take a dramatic transformation. It’s very common that people begin to distance themselves from old friends that they no longer have anything in common with.
You may instead find yourself wanting to spend time in nature, reading, going for walks alone, sitting under the stars, going on adventures, meditating, yoga, or doing forms of energy work. This is the biggest sign that something new is coming alive inside you.
3) You start seeing synchronicities in your life
You start to see many coincidences appear in your life. These coincidences have profound meaning, and the probabilities of these things occurring are so small that they can’t be attributed to mere chance. Pay attention to them, as they are a sign that you are on the right track. When your energy, thoughts, and emotions are aligned with the flow of the universe, it begins to work in your favour. When you stop working against it, it stops working against you.
These 3 signs are so universal and apply to so many people because they are all consequences of having an awakened soul. They are byproducts of allowing yourself to be guided by your heart and your spirit.
Crystals, chakras, and New Age philosophy aside, spiritual awakening is about self-realization. Realizing that you are not a gear in a capitalist machine. Realizing that you are an expression of the Infinite. Realizing that you are timeless, eternal, and non-physical. As you begin to recognize what you are, what you are not begins to crumble away. When you begin to recognize what you are not, what you are becomes illuminated.
