We live in an incredible time, where we, as a population, continue to grow and discover the truths of the world around us. As we do, people will become aware of the Universal truth, triggering a shift in spiritual awareness.
This is a life-changing time in our lives, where our eyes are opened to a greater truth beyond that of just the world before us. We begin to explore the connection between all living things, the existence of the spiritual plane and the idea that it all works together in some way. It is a time of heightened awareness, inspiring us to see the truths around us that we were once blind to. Does this all sound familiar? Are you currently experiencing a similar phenomenon in your own life?
These 14 symptoms reveal that you are currently undergoing a spiritual awakening:
#1 – You begin to discover yourself.
If you have been struggling with self-doubt or a lack of self-confidence leading up to this point, rest assured that your spiritual awakening will help to turn this around. As you begin to discover your purpose and see how you fit into the bigger picture, this also triggers a newfound love and appreciation for who you are, the strengths that you possess and the gifts that you bring this world.
#2 – Rather than hiding your weaknesses, you embrace them.
Most of us go through life trying to hide our weaknesses from the world in fear of being judged, criticized or being left vulnerable. When you experience a spiritual awakening, you recognize that the only way to overcome your weaknesses, growing into a better version of yourself, is by first embracing them for what they are.
#3 – You begin to see life with a new purpose.
Previously the decisions that you made in this life were largely revolving around what would be best for you as an individual – how can you propel yourself ahead, make more money, or feel greater pleasure in your daily routine. However, as you experience your spiritual awakening, you will begin to see that you have been sent to this life for a greater purpose. Suddenly everything you have encountered in this life will start to fall in line, leading you on a very specific journey.
#4 – Life on Earth begins to take on new meaning, as you realize you have been sent her to learn and grow.
Everything that you experience here on Earth happens for a reason, a very specific one. You have been sent here to learn, grow and evolve into the best version of yourself, a process that is necessary for true spiritual awakening. Rather than being upset or frustrated with life’s challenges, you start to see them as opportunities.
#5 – You no longer fear silence.
Have you ever noticed that we, as a society, fear silence? It leaves us feeling alone and vulnerable, and in an effort to avoid this uncomfortable feeling we will find any way possible to fill it including music and mindless small talk. As you experience a spiritual awakening, you will discover that silence isn’t frightening at all, in fact, it is a necessary time for self-reflection and organization in your life. You begin to embrace the rare moments of true solitude.
#6 – The people you allow into your life begins to change.
We don’t all experience spiritual awakening at the same time in our lives, which often creates a divide between us and those we once held close. It’s a painful process, however, you will begin to recognize that you can’t force them to change and grow, they need to experience this process in their own time in the same way that you did. However, at the same time, you can’t allow someone to hold you back from your life’s purpose and your new truth. Don’t worry, this very well may not be goodbye forever, it’s simply time apart until they experience this incredible stage of existence as well.
#7 – You begin to feel a deep connection with everything in the Universe.
If you’ve ever felt alone in this world, that is no longer the case. Rather than feeling like an individual alone in a crazy world, you suddenly begin to see the Universe as one giant puzzle, of which you are simply a piece. So too are the planets, the animals, and more. We are all connected in some way, and that connection is what makes everything work.
#8 – In fact, taking it a step further, you believe that everything is One.
Let’s look a little deeper at this connection. You don’t just recognize that everything is connected. Instead, acknowledging the working of the Universe in all of us, you see that we are all one with the Universe on a spiritual level. For this reason, we take great joy in every moment, acknowledging even the smallest of things that exist around us, like how red a rose really is, or how calming the waves can truly be.
#9 – Life as you used to live it no longer makes sense.
You look back on your life before this moment and you no longer understand what you were thinking. Things that were once a big priority, like fame and fortune, no longer hold the weight that they once did. You are turned off but habits that were once impossible to let go of like smoking or extreme worrying. Instead, you begin to see life as so much bigger than just you and this moment.
#10 – You are no longer interested in mindless small talk.
There was once a day where you could talk for hours on end about the latest sports team, which celebrities are making the headlines and more. However, as you start to understand the bigger picture of the universe, all of these things begin to feel trivial. Instead, you crave deep, meaningful conversations that challenge you spiritually and/or intellectually.
#11 – Honesty and authenticity become a top priority in your life.
The things you once believed to be ‘truth’ have now been called into question, and life as you know it has been turned upside down. As you begin to rediscover truth and uncover the authenticity of your life and the Universe, this will become something you highly value. You will not only expect this of yourself but of everyone else that you allow into your life.
#12 – You start to feel energized.
As you begin to connect with the energy of the Universe, aligning your thoughts and actions with its greater purpose, this will lead to a boost in your energy levels. When we align our journey with that of the universe, it’s energy will actually recharge us and propel us forward towards our common goal.
#13 – Living a life of compassion, you give unconditionally to those in need.
Spiritual awakening will help tap into your empathy, opening your eyes to the struggles and challenges of those around you. While you recognize that you don’t possess the solution to all of life’s problems, you do know that you can make a difference in another life. You believe that you have been given your gifts, not for personal gain, but to make a difference in the lives of others.
#14 – You no longer fear death.
Ultimately, you begin to recognize that your life here on Earth is only one chapter in a much bigger story. For this reason, you don’t fear death because you are able to see that death isn’t actually the end. It’s merely a shift from one stage into another, as you move into the spiritual plane.
