Ever wonder if there are any spiritual awakening signs? How do you know if you are spiritually awakening? And what does being spiritually awake mean anyway? I used to think if someone had psychic abilities that they must be very wise as well.
As I met more people on the spiritual path, I realized being psychic could be a part of being spiritual, but wasn’t necessarily so.
I think we’ve all heard stories of people with psychic abilities who want to have power over others and manipulate them.
I’ve also met people, who use their psychic gifts as a path to explore their purpose and relationship with the Divine.
This is what I do. I’ve found for myself that a big part of my purpose is helping people by giving psychic readings, helping people to shift their energy through Reiki, and teaching people how to connect to their own psychic abilities so they can deepen their spirituality and awaken.
If you’ve been experiencing some odd things lately, it could be that you are starting to open up more to your spiritual potential. The energies of the earth are shifting and helping us to evolve to realize our multi-dimensional selves and the connection that we have to everything. This is part of the ascension process.
So here’s the list of spiritual awakening signs. I’m basing this on what I experienced along the way and what my students experience as they open up. There may be other things that are not on this list that you are noticing. In that case, please share those signs and experiences in the comment section below.
Note that in this list of spiritual awakening signs, I’m including psychic abilities as part of the signs. As you read, I’ll explain how this is related to the energy shifts of ascension which is about humanity’s spiritual evolution.
1. Tingling, Tightness or Warmth – 3rd eye or crown chakra
One of the most common signs is your 3rd eye starts to tingling, feel tight or warm. It tends to come and go. You may notice it more when you meditate or do psychic exercises that start to stretch those muscles.
Some people also feel this sensation in their crown chakra. I’ve experienced it in both chakras plus I’ve felt warmth in my heart and solar plexus chakra that is so warm it’s like a heating pad was on it. At this time, I was working on forgiveness and love, and self-confidence – exactly what those two chakras are associated with.
In my opinion, your psychic abilities are key to communicating with Higher Source, which I believe is a loving and intelligent force. I believe this is one of the spiritual awakening signs because it allows you to tune into information about your spiritual path that may not have been accessible to you without these abilities.
If your psychic abilities start to open, you can choose to connect with this source to continue your spiritual awakening, or not. It is a free-will universe.
2. Number Sequences
As a spiritual awakening sign, seeing number sequences is probably the one that most people wonder about the meaning.
When people start awakening, they tend to see particular numbers over and over again. One of the most common ones is 11:11, but it can be anything – 222, 44, 770 etc. Usually people see these numbers popping up several times a day as the time on a digital clock, a receipt amount, a license plate number, a building number, etc.
It’s thought that when you see these numbers that you are in the flow of energy. Another interpretation is that it is an activation (helping to raise your frequency) or a sign that you are being supported by the Universe, your Spirit Guides, or those on the Other Side.
Once you start to awaken, the number sequences don’t stop. You’ll find that some days are full of them and others are not.
Some people say that there are no synchronicities. They are just random things happening and we give them meaning so it looks like they are connected. Synchronicity is a spiritual awakening sign, and here’s why.
I believe that there is nothing random in the universe and that once you start opening up spiritually, your vibration changes and you start to be more in sync with the natural flow of the universe.
When you are in the flow all sorts of interesting things happen – including synchronicities. Just think of all the things that must be in alignment for one event to happen. Can you imagine if it was a string of connected events all orchestrated to help you and those associated with those events?
The more awake you are, the more you are able to perceive and be in the flow of energy. You start seeing the synchronicities – all the signs that the Universe is putting right in front of you – to help you on your path.
4. Feeling at One
I remember being on the subway one day a few years ago. All of a sudden, my heart just opened up. I felt so connected to everyone. I noticed that everyone I looked at was just so beautiful to me, no matter what their physical attributes were.
Spirituality is loving energy. It has no room for judgement or resentment. The more awakened you are, the more love you will be able to hold in your heart. When you reach a particular openness, the barriers that give the illusion of separateness dissolve and you may feel that you are at one with everything.
It would take a very high level spiritual being to have a heart like this all the time. For the rest of us, we may have moments of experiencing this spiritual awakening sign until we are at a higher level of spiritual evolution.
5. Your Body Becomes More Sensitive
I used to really enjoy a glass of wine, or even a beer now and then. Now I can’t drink at all without feeling off – so I don’t. But it’s not only alcohol, it’s also food that isn’t made with wholesome, good ingredients.
Now you might be asking yourself, is this really a spiritual awakening sign? Isn’t this just a food allergy? Here’s a different take on it.
As your vibration changes to resonate more with ascension energy, your cells start to function at higher frequency as well. Your body may become more sensitive to the energy of certain substances you put in it that do not support your health and the state of your energetic frequency. These substances cause a disturbance in the energy field and may manifest in tangible symptoms.
If you are spiritually starting to open, you will find that you are more in tune with the energy of your own body. That means you will have to listen to it’s needs and meet them if you want to be at your best.
It’s not just substances but energy that is associated with food as well. There is one Indian restaurant I’ve tried eating at. The food is fine, but the owner is clearly unhappy. I feel it in the food and it reacts with my body and emotions. So now I avoid that particular place.
People who are experiencing this spiritual awakening sign tend to turn to natural energies to keep themselves balanced and recharged. Connecting with nature helps as does meditating.
Becoming more energetically sensitive to all sorts of things like food, substances, noise, and places where there are lots of people and hence lots of mixed energies may be a spiritual awakening sign.
6. You Feel Like You Have a Bigger Purpose
This is not your ego we are talking about here! This is the deep urge that comes from wanting to do something meaningful in the world. It’s not so much about leaving a legacy as immersing oneself in purposeful work that comes from the spirit.
One day you wake up and feel that there is more to life than meets the eye. The things that used to give you meaning no longer do. Or it’s not that there is anything wrong with your life, but something just doesn’t feel right.
I’m not talking about a mid-life crisis! That’s not a spiritual awakening sign but a phase that people may pass through and then settle down. This spiritual awakening sign is not a phase that you might go through for a few months and then forget about.
You know it deep in your core that you are more than what you’ve been told, that there is a whole Universe out there just waiting for you to open your eyes and wake up. This is part of your spiritual awakening.
7. Release, Dreams, Rest
Okay, so this isn’t just one spiritual awakening sign. I combined these three spiritual awakening signs together, but for a reason. These three spiritual awakening signs go hand in hand.
I find that my progression goes in waves. Emotions come up to the surface – old things I thought were done but obviously just buried, things that no longer serve me, anger and resentment, doubts and fears. So the first spiritual awakening sign here is releasing old emotions.
Often my dreams change during this time. Sometimes they are very vivid and have messages for me to ponder. As I keep opening up and adjusting to the ascension energies, I release through my dreams as well. Dreams are the second part of this spiritual awakening sign.
I also find I need more rest. It’s tough shifting and integrating all that energy without letting the physical and energetic bodies have time to adjust and align. Assuming there isn’t a medical reason why you are more tired, I would count this as the third part of this spiritual awakening sign.
As those of us who are opening up and spiritually awakening move into higher vibrations, all the elements of emotions that were associated with the lower vibrations will come up to the surface. We can choose to stuff those down which takes energy and causes stress, or we can work through it and let it go.
I know this is only a partial list of spiritual awakening signs and there are many spiritual awakening signs and experiences. These are the top seven spiritually awakening signs that come to mind when I think of my own path and what I see as being most common in my students and clients.
