Spiritual Thursdays: You’re not crazy, you’re just waking up

5 Spiritual Awakening Symptoms

  1.  You feel as though your life is false or empty.
  2.  You’re completely lost.
  3.  You intuitively know that there’s something “more” to life.
  4.  You’re starting to question everything you’ve been taught.
  5.  You feel the need to be alone more often.

Can you relate?  You’re not alone.

Peace Soulstars,

First, I want to stress that these general symptoms are subjective.  You don’t have to have them all but in some way you can identify with them.  Remember, these are only five of many symptoms.  A spiritual awakening (enlightenment) experience is different for everybody.  So, it’s quite difficult to “define” but easier to describe.  Based on my experience, my spiritual awakening began with a “change” in my subconscious which affected how I perceived the world and myself.   There was a desire for a deeper meaning of life which usually involves an urge to explore one’s life purpose.  Because of this urge to explore deeper meanings, understandings, and discovering your life purpose you’ll begin to question a LOT.  It also doesn’t  happen all at once.

It may be questioning your religion and other beliefs, what you eat, what’s going on in the world, the news, media etc.  You start to detach yourself from societal norms and standards that you once followed as you realize you followed blindly.  You may feel a connection to a higher power or desire connection to a higher power.  Feeling a heightened sense of compassion for others including animals, the planet, and issues that don’t just affect you directly.

You may think you’re going crazy or something is wrong with you but actually you are awakening.  I like to refer to it as “remembering” or “returning” to your authentic self because you’re not technically “changing”.  You are just waking up from a slumber so to speak.  It was bound to happen because of the cosmic shift.  The cosmic shift represents a shift in consciousness where people are starting to recognize their connection to the universe and each other as a whole.  A need to shed oneself of old habits, patterns, behaviors and thought processes plays a huge part in the subconscious change during one’s awakening.

Here’s something else that’s interesting…You can have more than one awakening.  There are levels to this because life is complex.   Awakenings don’t just flow in a specific order starting and then ending in one cycle.  There are many twists, turns, leaps, and falls.

You are equipped to handle the turbulence but the key is learning to let go.  There’s so much to let go of starting with the ego.  That’s not an easy thing to do which is why there are cycles to awakening.  You’re shedding layers in order to reveal your truth; your authenticity.  Keep in mind, it’s more about remembering not changing.  So, let’s start remembering together.
