A spiritual awakening is an ongoing process whereby a person becomes aware of their connection to the infinite, and becomes mindful of their spiritual nature.
Many people have the feeling as if something big is going to happen, yet nobody really knows what this big change is going to be. It is starting to reveal itself at the edge of the horizon.
Over the last couple of decennium, exponentially more people started to feel a bigger affinity towards spirituality. Something is not only changing in the world, but also inside of us. There seems to be a link between those changes. It seems like more people are starting to wake up and experience a so-called ‘spiritual awakening’.
This is a process of letting go of the person they have become, to become the person they are meant to be. Being more perceptive to what is happening within ourselves and to what is happening around us.
A spiritual awakening is for every person different, so is the way a person experiences spirituality and to which degree it influences their life on a daily base. Some people do not even realize they experience symptoms of a spiritual awakening, because they don’t know how to categorize their experience.
Here is a list of different symptoms which are linked to a spiritual awakening. Which ones these symptoms did you experience or which ones can you recognize?
Extremely vivid and lucid dreams
Ever had the feeling after waking up from a deep sleep, that you were not sure if something really happened or if you dreamt it? These are the extreme vivid dreams. Sometimes you will even find yourself being conscious in a dream. The moment that you realize you are dreaming you can take control of the dream, and experience the infinite possibilities of a lucid dream.
A sudden interest in the paranormal and metaphysical subjects
This sudden interest can help a person evolve and learn more about the truths of the world that are unspoken in the mainstream media. The paranormal and metaphysics can interest everyone in a way that speaks to them personally. Some people are drawn to the side of meditation, crystals, healing and energy work; while others enjoy aliens, conspiracy, technology and government matters. It’s all about finding what resonates with you the most.
Life changing events
This will be an event that will force you to reflect on your life. Most of the time it will be a signal that you have to take things easier and slow down. This can come to every person in a different way.
Some will witness this in the form of a death or loss of a loved one, others a divorce, a loss of a house or job.
In some cases even a burnout. In other words, a life altering event that forces you to re-evaluate your life and makes you see a bigger picture.
The urge to say goodbye to restrictive patterns
You suddenly have an extreme desire to truly start living your life. Everything and everyone that stands in the way of achieving this goal is bound to hear the words ‘goodbye’. This counts for the horrific job that drains the life out of you but also the toxic people that are holding you back. The process of finding yourself and finding out where your true passion lies will make you evolve in the process of spiritual awakening.
Time seems to go faster
The acceleration of time is also a clear symptom, this can be explained by the big events that are occurring in your life. Everything is changing around you and you can’t stop it. The best thing you can do is try to live your life a conscious as possible, acknowledge the ‘now’.
Getting a new perspective on life
When an individual understands that they are infinite and eternal beings, they are able to take a grander perspective.
Suddenly, the problems and issues that are happening in the present moment can be seen for what they really are: temporary, and largely insignificant. This has the effect that you are able to take things less serious.
Synchronicities get noticeable
Synchronicities, or meaningful coincidences, appear more frequently. It is a sign of your intuition and connectedness to everything and everyone. It is a magical phenomenon that lets us know we are open to spiritual guidance and on the right path.
Synchronicity can be seen as a part of feeling this sensation. The feeling of being part of everything and everything being a part of you. This is a symptom that shows advanced spiritual awakening.
