Symptoms Of Spiritual Awakening
| Guest Writer: Symptoms Of Spiritual Awakening |
Sunfell’s Note: In my own spiritual transition to the Awakened state, I suffered and endured many of these changes. Annarita has thoroughly documented many of the symptoms and changes inherent in both the Awakening and the transition into the Octarine stage of Indigo life. Your mileage may vary. And if you find yourself really feeling out of whack, go see your doctor. It is better that you find you’re basically OK than to permit a possible major disease like diabetes or heart disease to develop under your nose. As always, common sense, good grounding and a good sense of humor are your best tools for coping. See you on the Other Side! Symptoms of Spiritual Awakening by Annarita
THE ASCENSION SYMPTOMS
| The conclusion of this chapter lists 40 of the most common ascension symptoms that many are experiencing. Here are 10 of the 40: |
• Feeling as if you are in a pressure cooker or in intense energy; feeling stress. This is one of the first ascension symptoms that a person usually feels. In the beginning, when the energy shifts arrive, they bring with them a New and higher vibration. Old patterns, behaviors and beliefs are being pushed to the surface for release. Feeling all this pressure going on inside of you can feel like great stress or that you are on overload. If you are still in a conventional life with mainstream pressures, this New energy can really add to your pile. You will eventually adjust to this higher vibration and much will be activated for release within you as well. More room inside for more of the higher energy!
• Depression. This symptom is most definitely in the top three and very widely experienced. The ascension process purges so much of the darker and denser energies from us, that we find ourselves “in them” for quite some time. We may feel like things are simply never going to get better. And to add insult to injury, the outer world is no longer in alignment with the new higher vibrating you. It doesn't feel so good out there and it may feel like there is nowhere to go that does. Therefore, everything around us feels just plain ugly and icky. And in addition, when we are vibrating higher and have to wait for the outside to manifest itself in a higher way of being, it can feel like it is taking forever. Feelings of let down and feelings that things will never change are so very common. This is a long process. An upside down reality, world and human is having to turn right side up. There is a jewel in the length of the process, though, and a necessary and perfectly intended by-product. We cannot create from the ego. We have to get to a place where we are OK no matter what is going on. Feeling disappointment for what feels like forever eventually makes us realize that we will never get anything that we feel we cannot live without. When we learn to detach and release all attachments, we always get precisely what we want. It is like magic and a very key part of the ascension process involving letting go of all attachments. When we arrive in this space, we are truly in heaven as absolutely nothing can affect us here and we also get whatever we desire, even though we desire nothing. This is a true symptom of “arriving” and one can only feel total peace from this point on.
• Anxiety, panic and feelings of hysteria. When our egos begin to depart, they literally freak out as they do not want to cease to exist. It may feel as if everything is ending (most of everything is!). Your system is also on overload and you may feel as if you are hyperventilating. Things are happening to you that you may not understand. You are also losing behavior patterns of a lower vibration that you developed for survival in 3D. This may make you feel vulnerable and powerless. These patterns and behaviors you are losing are not needed in the higher realms. When we experience death during a 3D process, we can panic and have anxiety as we do not know where we are going. When I went through a big leap, I knew I was “going.” My non-physical ascension guide told me to trust and relax, as it was really quite peaceful on the other side. None-the-less, with no frame of reference, it was difficult. Now, I totally trust and go with all of it and it greatly helps. When you finally “arrive” you will eventually feel much love, safety and unity. Just wait! And also know that others are going where you are going ... you are not going alone.
• A need to eat often along with what feels like attacks of low blood sugar. A craving for protein. This is another one of the first symptoms that is felt by many. Our bodies are using up an incredible amount of fuel for this process. As we are literally being turned inside out, every ounce of energy we have is being utilized. I have found it best to eat the protein along with being still during this time. These low blood sugar periods come and go for several years, but get much better as our bodies begin adjusting.
• Weight gain, especially in the abdominal area. Weight gain has been experienced and reported by many. It's interesting that many of the ascension symptoms greatly mock menopausal symptoms, except that many men are having them too! I have found that the abdominal area is a great protector for the solar plexus. With our internal vibrations beginning to rise, the outside world feels pretty horrendous at times. Whenever I am in the “outside” world, I notice that my belly seems to expand. There are some who believe that as we reach higher states of consciousness, we get a “Buddha belly.” These individuals take great pride in their swollen bellies! (I prefer a flat and trim one, myself …) But all over weight gain is common as well. As we lose more and more of our density, we subconsciously fear that we will disappear and want some extra weight. In addition, this extra weight is very beneficial in keeping us grounded and in supporting us in processing and holding these New higher vibrations. No matter what you do, from intense and regular exercise to fasting, this extra weight will not come off because it is not supposed to. It is here to help us. It took me two years, but I finally got used to it.
• Unusual aches and pains throughout different parts of your body. This is another of the most common symptoms. Manifesting just about anywhere, this is a sign of purifying and releasing blocked energy that is vibrating at a 3D level while other parts of us are vibrating higher. You may feel pain in various areas of your body for several weeks and then it will simply vanish with no explanation.
• A feeling of disorientation; not knowing where you are; a loss of a sense of place. “Where in the world am I? I do not fit anywhere and nothing seems to fit or feel remotely right! And I do not know where I belong or where I am going or what I am supposed to be doing either!” Ever had this conversation with the universe? You have been knocked out of your old grooves by an energy shift and are in between realities. You have successfully left much behind and are in a very new space but have not integrated yet. You won't have much time to integrate, though, because as soon as you get comfortable you will be moving on into the next higher vibrating space. And in addition, the outside world does not remotely match the way you are now highly vibrating.
• A sudden disappearance of friends, activities, habits, jobs and residences. One of the most basic and prevalent experiences in the higher realms involves the Law Of Attraction. Like energies always attract like and similar energies. This relates to the dimensional hierarchies as well. We will always be matched with what and how we are vibrating. As we go higher and higher, this phenomenon becomes much more magnified and also becomes one of the basic cores of our reality and existence. Through the ascension process, we are evolving beyond what we used to be, and therefore the people and surroundings that no longer match our vibration simply leave our space. This can sometimes occur rather dramatically or at times through a simple desire resulting from an inability to relate to them like we used to. When an energy shift occurs, it can feel as though a bomb has been dropped and everything in our world has been scattered from here to there. Eventually we realign with the New. When the New arrives, you will feel so-o-o-o much better!
• Experiencing emotional ups and downs; weeping. Our emotions are what carries the energy. When we are falling apart (and we are doing just that), we can get pretty emotional. When we are releasing, we can cry at the drop of a hat. A sad movie can make us cry, or even a sad commercial. We can cry when we experience kindness and we can cry when we feel relief and we can cry when we see any kind of suffering. The tears are a great cleanser and re leaser. I always know when some New energy has arrived because I can simply cry while I am driving along in the car. This seems to be an on-going symptom that does not gradually leave us. But at least it is fairly painless!
• Vivid, wild and sometimes violent dreams. We are releasing many lifetimes of lower vibrational energy through our dreams. If you are one who usually receives their higher information through dreams, you will most likely do a lot of releasing at night. I consider you to be lucky, as some are doing much of their releasing while they are wide awake. These dreams usually do not make sense, but if you are good at dream analysis you can usually figure them out. These acid trip like dreams are up and visible because they contain energy that is on its' way out, never to return. Through this process, we are releasing all of our past lives.
• Memory loss; difficulty accessing words. So many are having this symptom that we can only laugh as we try to converse with each other. “I was having a glass of ... you know what I mean ... that white stuff ... uh ... what's it called?” “Did you watch the ... er ... that event where everyone competes from around the world?” At times we cannot even talk at all because we are simply unable to access much of anything. When this occurs, you are going back and forth between dimensions and experiencing a “disconnect.” Another rather related occurrence is trying to type words and having the letters become jumbled in the wrong order. In this case, we are not in alignment with “time” and our flow is disconnected as part of our energy is here and another part is further ahead.
| The conclusion of this chapter lists 33 symptoms of reaching the higher realms. Here are the first 10: • You reach a certain level through your ascension process where you no longer desire or resonate with any kind of healing. And like a reformed smoker, you can get frustrated when the New Age arena continues to focus much of their energy on healing. As we begin to vibrate higher, we no longer need healing. Healing serves to basically introduce us to a lower vibrating energy that is no longer any kind of a match to us. It can take us “back” where we no longer are. And it can really bring in a lower vibrating energy that we need not ever focus on again. Where we place our energy and focus greatly becomes our surrounding reality more than ever in the higher realms. Why would one want to continually focus on lower vibrating energy? This energy can feel like something from another world where you are no longer residing. And receiving a healing after you have “gotten here” can also short circuit your system. |
• You no longer have the same connection with your physical family. We chose to be born into a physical environment in order to support the development of necessary traits that we chose to embody in order to support our soul purpose. In addition, most of us agreed to uplift the planetary vibration through transmuting the darker and denser energies. After our “prior incarnation” is complete and we are done and have arrived in a higher realm, our purposes with our families are now obsolete. The cords are basically severed. We are no longer connected through “issues.” We are done with this experience. Therefore, our family members can suddenly disappear from our lives for no apparent reason as there is no longer a connection to them. But if we continue to simply love them and have that as our connection, we can continue to maintain a relationship based on joy and choice. And after we arrive in a higher state of clarity, we are also able to clearly see who they really are and how they operate, which has absolutely nothing to do with us.
• Your lifetime friends suddenly leave your life. Same as above. And sometimes we re-unite with friends we haven't seen for eons. This energetic pattern is also true for geographical areas on the planet as well. When we are done with a particular purpose, we are done. In the higher realms it is all about joy, fun, experiencing and creating with no attachments. This is why we may also get to go back to old friends and geographical homes as we are now uniting for a different purpose.
• You suddenly see what it is all about and always has been and it has nothing to do with “karma,” “contracts,” “life lessons,” or “Earth as a school.” These are things that someone made up and many of us bought into. We needed a story to explain why we were so uncomfortable and we needed it to be spiritual and purposeful so that our “suffering” would not be in vain. When the fog finally lifts and we rise above it, we are no longer seeing through limited thinking of a lower vibrating consciousness. It is all about energy and using it to have an experience. We wanted to play games. We made up stories. At times we came to the planet to try and alter it through our higher consciousness that we placed in form (our bodies). We were bored at times. The purpose of Earth and of existence is to create through form. We were never trying to get anywhere or to continually be trying to go back home. We wanted to play, have fun and experience. And we weren't serious all the time! Spirituality is about joy, fun and creating and playing. It is absolutely not rigid, full of rules, or judgmental. It is about freedom, love and laughter.
• You are no longer interested in spiritual gatherings, group meditations, or the New Age arena in general. You have come to realize that “intentional spirituality” is not really real and does not “stick.” The truth of the matter is, we are spiritual 24/7 no matter what we are doing. Forced spirituality removes us from the world and places us in artificial situations where we are not really being, but “trying” to be. In the higher realms, we are simply living our lives and experiencing. We are not continually wanting something else and trying to place ourselves in situations that we think may bring us closer to Source because they seem to be more “spiritual.” It is far better to have the presence of your being here in the world rather than in a pocket of distanced and artificial “trying.”
• You get rid of all your spiritual and self-help books and no longer desire to learn anything new. Congratulations! You have arrived in the state of being . You are also done learning as you are readying to provide your energy through your special gifts and talents by simply being in a space where you are greatly enjoying being here. Being in the moment relates to this as well. And expanding and growing always comes from experience, not from book learning or mental awareness. We can now get any additional information we need through connecting directly. In addition, if you are no longer craving any new information, you are most likely done in this universe and readying to go to the next level.
• You crave simplicity and can barely tolerate anything complicated. We have released so much that we are much more in a state of simplicity. In the higher realms, one does not need to make anything happen or to do one thing in order to have an outcome. There are no hoops to jump through or complicated processes. When we are being a vibration, we simply and naturally draw it to us. And remember, in the higher realms we are simply being, creating and experiencing. No planning, agendas, opinions, or having to prove something or do something in order to receive something.
• Negativity feels downright awful. In the higher realms, there is no contrast or negativity. When we reach a higher state, we know intuitively that life is about joy, passion, and creativity and we never have a thing to complain about. Negativity comes from powerlessness and this state does not exist in the higher realms. And continually talking about anything in a negative way brings it to life and makes negativity a real experience and reality. It gives it fuel and allows it to exist.
• Drama is a thing of the past. When we reach the higher states we can clearly see that we had been most certainly existing in a “play.” As we are now living and viewing things from a higher level, we no longer need dramas and stories to unfold around us due to unintentional and unconscious creating. We no longer desire this emotional state of powerlessness as it no longer fits where we are. And we are much too tired and apathetic as a perfect by-product of the ascension process to have the energy for this kind of thing!
• What you think about seems to arrive in record time. This effect really becomes evident during energy surges. It is perfect training for practicing positive thinking. We are so used to receiving realities as if from no part of our own. We are coming to know that we can really consciously create now with purposeful intent for our best outcomes. And having things arrive for us in record time can be a great opportunity to become very clear in all aspects regarding what we are trying to create. It can be fun to continually tweak our creations until they are perfect.
