Symptoms of a Spiritual Awakening...
When I first had my Spiritual Awakening, it lasted for about four months and then I entered into a Dark Night of the Soul. Those four months resulted in a major transformation where I went through and had many life-changing experiences and symptoms. In my blog 'Awakening to my Spiritual Journey,' I spoke about what having a Spiritual Awakening was and how it’s a rewarding and beautiful path of transformation to one’s authentic self. Throughout the process there were many symptoms that I had. These symptoms came and went, increased or decreased but most important the symptoms definitely caused major shifts and changes in my life. Although there is a lot of information out in the world about all the symptoms one can have during a spiritual awakening everyone is different and what one person may experience another person may not. However, I do believe there are a lot of common symptoms that almost everyone will experience. I decided to make a list down below (in no particular order) of my personal spiritual awakening symptoms that I've experienced and some I'm still experiencing along my journey with the intentions of resonating with others who are experiencing these same symptoms and not quite understanding why.
I started to experience happiness and joy like never before.
I started to embrace and love my life for what it was, chaos and all.
I began to have an unconditional love for who I was as a person, flaws and all.
My eating habits changed, I began to eat more and even gained some weight.
I stopped eating and or cut down on foods that no longer made me feel good like meat, milk and candy.
I started having an overwhelming love for my children and our home life, and found myself being a little extra nice during times I normally wouldn’t.
I no longer wanted to watch the news or hear or see any type of violence...anywhere!
I began to have a deep love and connection with sunsets, flowers and nature in general.
I began to have compassion and empathy for animals and people who were less fortunate.
I started seeing repeating numbers but at the beginning of my spiritual awakening they were two-digit numbers like 11, 22, 33, and 44. These numbers started appearing after seeing 11/11.
Everywhere I went my surroundings began to look very bright and all colors really stood out to me. Everything was clear looking and beautiful.
My sleep pattern changed, I started waking up a couple of times during the early morning hours. Sometimes exactly at 3:33 or 4:44.
I started having vivid dreams.
I started having frequent headaches, neck and back pains.
I started doing a lot of researching online about my symptoms and spirituality in general.
I felt a constant peace and happiness and an overall love and bliss for all. Although there were many days in between where I was emotional, crying and needed alone time.
I felt the urge to share and talk to a few people about my experience but as I continued on my journey I came to understand that this journey is one of much solitude and normally the people who were around me wouldn’t understand what I was going through.
I felt connected to the spiritual world and knew that I was on a journey and that there was so much more to life than the normal everyday routine that I was living.
I was happy, grateful and overwhelmingly blessed to have awakened from my slumber.
