Signs And Symptoms Of A Spiritual Awakening Using My Life Experience

As time goes on, we’re seeing more people becoming aware of how our world works, who we are as creators of this Universe, and what we truly desire in this lifetime. I think people call it “woke” nowadays?

And since we are becoming awakened, you might hear people talking about having a “spiritual awakening”.

What is a spiritual awakening?

I’ll be going based off my own interpretation of what a spiritual awakening is.

To me, a spiritual awakening is where, on a very deep soul level, we have a realization of our current reality. That includes who you are authentically, what kind of life you want to live, seeing the world past the filter that we have been fed to by society standards, and so much more.

In fact, if you are reading this post, chances are, you might have gone through one already (or might be on the verge of one) since there must have been a reason why you have been called to read about spirituality.

But, just in case you aren’t sure, I’d like to talk about my spiritual awakening experiences and what I have found when I went through it.

Hopefully, these experiences I talk about will resonate with you in some way, but most importantly, I share my experiences so you aren’t alone during times like these.

1. I started to question my reality

I have truly started to question what kind of reality I was living. When I went through my spiritual awakening, I have read so many books on the mindset, spirituality, Universal Intelligence, and personal development. What I have realized was that we are some serious powerful creators!

And quite honestly, I think this information about us is hidden in order to gain more control of us (ever heard of brainwashing? Societal conditioning?).

If we knew just how powerful we are, there wouldn’t be so many people living such a mediocre, depressing life.

A lot of people don’t believe they are worthy or good enough to live a great life, but what they don’t realize is that it all comes within the power of our own thoughts.

Our thoughts literally create our reality.

I have read and watched so many successful people talk about their stories on how they have become successful and the most common theme they have all said was that it all came from their thoughts, aka, their belief system.

Now, don’t get me wrong. It definitely takes some work.

However, it’s possible to rewire your belief system to your advantage.

If you are looking into the spiritual side of things, a great way to start would be to develop your intuition and connect with your Higher Self. Our intuition and your Higher Self already know what is best for you and why you have reincarnated onto this planet.

Once you learn how to connect with these aspects, you’ll start to realize what kind of reality you truly want to live in!

2. I lost a lot of people in my life

Although losing the people in your life may sound scary, there was actually a good reasoning for this.

I ended up losing the people who no longer resonated with my wavelength.

Think of it as an RPG game. The more you level up, the stronger you get, the more advance you become, you’re usually around other people who are at the same level as you and not usually around those who have just started the game.

Sometimes, when we go through a spiritual awakening, it’s hard to relate to the people around you because you aren’t on the same wavelength as them, especially since a spiritual awakening makes you gain awareness to your surroundings, which of course, involves the people you surround yourself with.

For example, maybe you find that you no longer want to engaged in gossip or people’s complaints, which is a common way people associate with each other.

I know for me, I realized that there were a lot of negative people in my life. The more I heard these people talk badly about others or even just complaining about everything, I realized that I reflected back these traits. I realized the negative side effects that I put myself in, but didn’t realize until I gain the awareness through my spiritual awakening.

And if you know anything about the Universal Laws, this type of behavior portrays a lot to the Law of Mirrors (also known as the Law of Correspondence), which is where we are a reflection of what is going on with us internally and reflected to us into the physical world.

And I don’t know about you, but I didn’t want more reasons to gossip or complain about my life, so I ended up losing these types of people, friends and family included.

Either that or I just cut them out completely.

Now, life has become so much more peaceful and honestly, I am a pretty happy person at least 98% of the time since doing so. I feel like I can just wake up and feel joyful about my day without having a reason to besides just choosing to have a joyful day.

So don’t be afraid if you start to lose a couple of friends or family members in your life. This may just be that you have leveled up to a higher frequency and energetically, it may be hard to relate to them anymore. Sometimes, these people may rejoin you later in life if they choose to go through their own awakening experience.

The good news is that when you level up to a higher vibrational frequency, you start to attract higher vibrational people into your life!

3. I made drastic changes in my life

From changing careers, to going onto a fitness journey, to moving to a bigger city, and even at one point I remember cutting off all my hair, I have made some pretty drastic changes in my life.

In my opinion, when you go through a spiritual awakening, you start to have a realization of wanting to live your life the way you want to, not for other people. So, it’s no wonder I did so many drastic changes. I had realized that I was just a massive people pleaser and I wasn’t honoring what I truly wanted to do in my life.

Sometimes when people are unaware, they stay stagnant in their life, usually because of fear, doubt, or feelings of unworthiness.

When in reality, we are creatures of expansion. Just like the world around us, from the universe to nature, we are also expansive. We were made for change, but so many of us never make that step to change.

If you find yourself wanting to make huge changes in your life, I encourage you to go for it because going through an awakening means that you are shifting into another reality, a reality that is more suited for your needs.

4. I showed up differently in my life

I can confidently say that I am not the same person, not even a year ago, not even five years ago. My awakening has made me show up in life differently.

I can finally say that after years of trying to fit in and be like everyone else, I am the most comfortable and confident within myself. And nobody can take that away from me.

When you go through a spiritual awakening, you’ll start to learn how the world really works and the conditions that were placed on you. I can name several things right off the bat when it comes to what is wrong with the societal conditioning, but everyone will have different perspectives and experiences.

So, I’ll let you figure it out and experience it for yourself.

But just know, don’t be surprised if you are unrecognizable from your peers.

5. Small talk becomes harder

I don’t know if it’s because we can’t learn to have better conversation or if people just don’t have anything interesting to say.

Who knows, maybe people are too afraid to be vulnerable, which I don’t necessary blame them considering we were taught to be very guarded with each other.

To me, small talk sucks.

That’s probably why I keep to myself most of the time because I have a hard time having small talk. Maybe it’s because of my esoteric beliefs and spiritual principles that made me distance myself from people.

I don’t know if you’ll go through something like this, but for me, I’ve realized the surface level bullshit that people talk about. Most of this comes from Ego.

I’m talking about comparing each other, people talking crap about each other, complaining about life, their job, their finances, their children, you name it.

And I say this because I know we all have the power within us to truly change our reality. I’ve tested so many theories on this and I continue to talk about my experiences, hence why I made this blog.

Sure, we can talk about the weather and how nice it is, but catch me when you want to talk about some deep shit.

6. I saw signs everywhere!

When I went through my spiritual awakening, I formed a meaning with the Universe that whenever I saw angel numbers, that I was on the right path.

Well, I see them literally everywhere, more than ever now!

And even when I would ask for the craziest signs, I always got my sign. So doing this has truly helped me deepen my bond with my spirit guides, the Universal Intelligence, and my Higher Self.

If you ever need some clarity on something and you want build trust with your Higher Power, try asking for a specific sign and let go of the need to search for it.

Trust me, the sign will come to you!

7. I mourned the life I once lived

Don’t get me wrong, change is absolutely necessary.

But I would be lying if I said that I hadn’t once missed my past life at one point during my spiritual awakening. This was mainly because everything was falling apart and sometimes in our mind, we feel that we are losing everything. Of course, this is all from the Ego and our Ego fears change, even if we intuitively know what’s best for us.

Like the Tower card in tarot (if you’re into tarot), our foundation falls apart in order for a newer one to be built. We have to break down the old reality that we once lived in order to make room for the newer one to come in (this is also one of the Universal Laws).

So of course, you might feel like you are mourning the loss of your old life, but your Higher Power has something better for you and the only way for you to receive it is to take out the old and make space for the new.

It’s ok to miss some things from your past life, but please know and remember that something better is coming. It’s never a “no” from the Higher Power, it’s usually a “not yet” or “I have something better”.

8. People thought I was crazy

I mean I don’t mind. It comes with the territory when you get into spirituality.

Plus, I think we all have a little crazy in us and it just makes us unique.

Many people walk through their life unaware of what this world truly is and how to take advantage of it. So, a lot of the stuff I talk about is unfamiliar to people like this, which is the only reason why they call me “crazy”.

Trust me, I have gotten so much sh*t after I had my spiritual awakening. But, as time has gone on, those same people who were giving me sh*t were also the ones who ended up asking how I did it or have shown jealousy of what I have been able to recognize within myself.

Either those people in your life will eventually understand or never understand you. If they choose to never understand you, that is on them. They chose to not step into their power and it’s not your problem if they chose to be disempowered.

So don’t be offended if people call you crazy.

If this is a trigger for you, take some time to heal this portion of you. After all, our triggers are our teachers. When we take time to feel into them and heal these wounds, we become so much stronger and better as a person.

Plus look at it this way, when you are living your most authentic self, you give these types of people the permission to do the same for themselves.

Think of it as doing them a favor.
