51 Symptoms of Spiritual Awakening – How Many Do You Have?

Annarita, Guest
Waking Times 

1. Changing sleep patterns: restlessness, hot feet, waking up two or three times a night

Feeling tired after you wake up and sleepy off and on during the day. There is something called the Triad Sleep Pattern that occurs for many: you sleep for about 2-3 hours, wake up, go back to sleep for another couple of hours, wake again, and go back to sleep again. For others, the sleep requirements have changed. You can get by on less sleep. Lately I have been experiencing huge waves of energy running into my body from the crown. It feels good, but it keeps me awake for a long time, then subsides.

Advice: Get used to it. Make peace with it and don’t worry about getting enough sleep (which often causes more insomnia). You will be able to make it through the day if you hold thoughts of getting just what you need. You can also request your Higher Self to give you a break now and then and give you a good, deep night’s sleep. If you can’t go back to sleep right away, use the waking moments to meditate, read poetry, write in your journal or look at the moon. Your body will adjust to the new pattern.

2. Activity at the crown of the head

Tingling, itching, prickly, crawling sensations along the scalp and/or down the spine.

A sense of energy vibrating on top of the head, as if energy is erupting from the head in a shower. Also the sensation of energy pouring in through the crown, described as “sprinkles”. This may also be experienced as pressure on the crown, as if someone is pushing his/her finger into the center of your head. As I mentioned in #1, I have been experiencing huge downloads of energy through the crown. In the past, I have felt more generalized pressure, as if my head is in a gentle vise. One man related that his hair stood on end and his body was covered with goosebumps.

Advice: This is nothing to be alarmed about. What you are experiencing is an opening of the crown chakra. The sensations mean that you are opening up to receive divine energy.

3. Sudden waves of emotion

Crying at the drop of a hat. Feeling suddenly angry or sad with little provocation. Or inexplicably depressed. Then very happy. Emotional roller coaster. There is often a pressure or sense of emotions congested in the heart chakra (the middle of the chest). This is not to be confused with the heart, which is located to the left of the heart chakra.

Advice: Accept your feelings as they come up and let them go. Go directly to your heart chakra and feel the emotion. Expand it outward to your all your fields and breathe deeply from the belly all the way up to your upper chest. Just feel the feeling and let it evaporate on its own. Don’t direct the emotions at anyone. You are cleaning out your past. If you want some help with this, say out loud that you intend to release all these old issues and ask your Higher Power to help you. You can also ask Grace Elohim to help you release with ease and gentleness. Be grateful that your body is releasing these emotions and not holding onto them inside where they can do harm. One source suggests that depression is linked to letting go of relationships to people, work, etc. that no longer match us and our frequencies. When we feel guilty about letting go of these relationships, depression helps us medicate that pain.

4. Old “stuff” seems to be coming up, as described above, and the people with whom you need to work it out (or their clones) appear in your life

Completion issues. Or perhaps you need to work through issues of self-worth, abundance, creativity, addictions, etc. The resources or people you need to help you move through these issues start to appear.

Advice: Same as #3. Additionally, don’t get too involved in analyzing these issues. Examining them too much will simply cycle you back through them over and over again at deeper and deeper levels. Get professional help if you need to and walk through it. Do not try to avoid them or disassociate yourself from them. Embrace whatever comes up and thank it for helping you move ahead. Thank your Higher Power for giving you the opportunity to release these issues. Remember, you don’t want these issues to stay stuck in your body.

5. Changes in weight

The weight gain in the US population is phenomenal. Other people may be losing weight. We often gain weight because many fears we have suppressed are now coming up to the surface to be healed. We react by building up a defense. We also attempt to ground ourselves or provide bulk against increasing frequencies in our bodies.

Advice: Don’t freak out, but just accept it as a symptom of where you are right now. You will release/gain the weight when all your fears have been integrated. Release your anxiety about this. Then you might find it easier to lose/gain the weight eventually. Exercise. Before eating, try this: Sit at the table with an attractive place setting. Light a candle. Enjoy how the food looks. Place your dominant hand over your heart and bless the food. Tell your body that you are going to use the food to richly nourish it, but that you are not going to use the food to fulfill your emotional hungers. Then pass your hand from left to right over the food and bless it. You may notice that the food feels warm to your hand even if the food is cold– I like to think that the food is good for me when it feels warm and nourishing to my hand. I have also noticed that when I practice blessing the food, I don’t eat as much. It is important not to let yourself off the hook when you forget to bless the food before you eat. If I’ve forgotten and I’ve nearly finished eating, I bless the food anyway. That way I don’t slip out of the habit. Another thing you can do is to stay present while eating — don’t watch TV or read. Heartily enjoy what blessings are before you.

6. Changes in eating habits: Strange cravings and odd food choices

Some find they are not as hungry as they used to be. Or hungrier.

Advice: Don’t deny what your body tells you it needs. If you are not sure, you might try muscle-testing before you chose a food to see if it’s what your body wants. Also try blessing the food as described in #5.

7. Food intolerances, allergies you never had before

As you grow more spiritual, you are more sensitive to everything around you. Your body will tell you what it can no longer tolerate, as if it, too, is sloughing off what doesn’t serve it anymore. You might be cleansing yourself of toxins. Some people find they often have a white residue in their mouth, much like that of runners at the end of a race.

Advice: An acupuncturist told me that this film can be removed by sloshing 2 tablespoons of cold-pressed olive oil in your mouth for 10-15 minutes (don’t swallow, whatever you do), then spitting it out into the toilet — not the sink, for you just removed toxins from your body and don’t want them in the sink. Brush your teeth and do the same. Then clean your brush. (Sorry this is yukky, but itworks.)

8. Amplification of the senses

Increased sensitivity.

8a. Sight: Blurry vision, shimmering objects, seeing glittery particles, auras around people, plants, animals, and objects. Some report seeing formerly opaque objects as transparent. When you close your eyes, you no longer see darkness, but redness. You may also see geometric shapes or brilliant colors and pictures when eyes are closed. Colors appear more vivid — the sky might look teal orthe grass an amazing green. Often I see grids running across the ground. As you become more sensitive, you may see shapes or outlines in the air, especially when the room is almost dark. When your eyes are open or closed, you may see white shapes in your peripheral vision (these are your guides).

Advice:Your vision is changing in many ways — you are experiencing new ways of seeing. Be patient. Whatever you do, do not be afraid. Hazy vision maybe relieved by yawning.

8b. Hearing: Increased or decreased hearing. I once thought I would have to pull off the road because of the painfully amplified sound of my tires on the freeway. Other symptoms are hearing white noise in the head, beeps, tones, music or electronic patterns.Some hear water rushing, bees buzzing, whooshing, roaring or ringing. Others have what is called audio dyslexia– you can’t always make out what people are saying, as if you can no longer translate your own language. Some hear strange voices in their dreams, as if someone is hovering near them. You can either ask the presence(s) to leave or ask Archangel Michael to take care of the situation. Again, there is nothing to fear.

Advice: Surrender to it. Let it come through. Listen. Your ears are adjusting to new frequencies.

8c. Enhanced senses of smell, touch, and/or taste. I notice I can now smell and taste chemical additives in some foods in a rather unpleasant manner. Other food may taste absolutely wonderful. For some people, these enhancements are both delightful and distracting. You might even smell the fragrance of flowers now and then. Many of the mystics did. Enjoy it.

9. Skin eruptions

Rashes, bumps, acne, hives, and shingles. Anger produces outbreaks around the mouth and chin. I had a dermatitis on my extremities for several months that accompanied healing an episode from my past. When I had worked through most of the issue, the condition was released.

Advice: You may be sloughing off toxins and bringing emotions to the surface. When there is an issue to be released and you are trying to repress it, your skin will express the issue for you until you process the emotions. Work through your “stuff”.

10. Episodes of intense energy which make you want to leap out of bed and into action

Followed by periods of lethargy and fatigue. The fatigue usually follows great shifts. This is a time of integration, so give into it.

Advice: Roll with the nature of the energy. Don’t fight it. Be gentle with yourself. Take naps if you are tired. Write your novel if you are too energized to sleep. Take advantage of the type of energy.

    Just last night I was sleeping heavily. At about 12 mid night I woke up really cold. But it was like only inside of me was cold. I was shivering and couldn’t even move. But yet my body to the touch was very warm. I couldn’t explain it. And I really don’t understand it. I fell back to sleep as I warmed up. But I have been feeling really sleepy all day.

  • Dr. Who What Where When Why

    so that just about covers everything and everybody, but you forgot one, # 52. when you don’t believe all this crap.

  • madethatway

    ‘Spiritual Awakening’ sounds so much more encouraging than the local quack squelching your joy with, “These symptoms are wholly indicative of Grave’s Disease/Hyperthyroidism”….

  • Ant TheBarbarian

    I experience all of these. Was trying to find the next step, but think I found it.

  • Burhan Bürmstein

    i wake very 1-1.5 hour most of the time :( i used to grab my phone and watch the time so know how late it was and how much more i could sleep, strangly sometimes i woke 1.5-2 hours of falling asleep and felt like i slept the whole night. i got used to it tho, now most of the time i don’t get my phone to watch the time and just go back to sleep 😀

  • MP

    I have experienced a burning sensation at the top of my head before, so strong
    I didn’t know what to think of it. It occurs every few months and it feels close to fire.
    Also, I have been eating clean foods the past month and a half, after I tried some processed food, it tasted ok, but then terrible…

    Yes, I have experienced meeting ppl who are very similar with a past person who brought on much pain. I had to cut ties w that person because they were all too similar
    But it help me resolve a few things.

  • BJ

    I am often awakened at night the past two years in an intense white light coming from inside and expanding all around me. So bright I can see everything around me in the middle of the night without opening my eyes. In fact, if I open my eyes I find myself in full darkness. (Quite an epiphany at that)

    That, on top of the fact that I have been experiencing MOST of the above list (more and more) for the past decade — my advice is to concur that we must just accept it and walk in spirit. Walk in goodness and light, surrender to what is true and real, and we find that we can SEE the matrix and EXPERIENCE reality beyond this plane.

    Blessings to all.

  • Michael

    This article does have some stuff that goes hand in hand with experiences. I found myself sympathizing with some of the more ridiculous stuff, like itchy/tingly head, burning feet, or my favourite: ‘7. Food intolerances, allergies you never had before.’

    You develop allergies all the time. Some are passed down. Some are environmental. Some are even neurological. It’s not magic. Neither is spiritual awakening. It’s surrendering Ego, accepting death as a release from life’s suffering, and becoming aware of the Truths writ large on the inside of your eyelids and everywhere else. Of course, there is only the internal perception and experience. Whatever is creating the information our brains process through the senses is just the template our minds build our individual perceptions of reality around.

    You’re projecting what disturbingly seems to be a candida(fungal) overgrowth and possible neurological condition/s onto what does seem to be a kind of spiritual awakening. Bouts of energy followed by lethargy is suggestive of adrenal problems, which are common with candida.

    Go get tested. You don’t want colon cancer or leaky gut. Enlightened or not, colostomy bags are going to be a distraction 😛

    This article may seem different to us, since our social life is Objective living. Objectivity & Subjectivity has a point of coincidence . Yes, it is here that [The Natural Happening of Total Celibacy] occurs .
    Now what is the importance of this human manifestation ? Up to Animal manifestation Eating, Sleeping, Mating — Birth / Death cycle continues undeterred . In this Illusive Manifestation cycle, Man alone has any power to choose Liberation . But our accepted social mode of family life is based on( Position & status) oriented self identification .This leads to Ego – reinforcements ! Ego’s role is that of Brahma [Creation] and for self sustenance, Ego retains these Vasanas unextinguished ! —- is a birth / death Vicious Cycle. No other God exists to help us other than We, the Ego totally detoxifying ourselves . The Ego [Cravings / Aversions] looking into Oneself is the only Solution [Buddha]. This same Ego should finally decide to get totally sublimated in The Sea Of All Pervasive , Pure Consciousness. Thousands of rebirths may be needed for the same . How ? Finally, Ego involutes into the Purest Selfhood [Allah,Father,Siva] by Total Detoxification,in Thoughts, Words, Deeds,such that 100% Non Dual CELIBACY, [Advaita] happens.Here CELIBACY has another dimension. It is the total inwards withdrawal of our 5 senses resulting in Total Elimination of Vital fluids loss for ever [The Immortality of Lord Jesus]————[I] am Eternal Pure Consciousness [Siva]————————– Siva is Non Dual Truth / Sakthi is Illusion—————————- [ Creation is Illusion ( Duality ) ] —

    To quote among the great political analysts Bonaventure Bootlegger
    ‘You can lead a horse to water, big-deal. Our studios work around the clock thinking of fresh ideas for great content.

    Today’s free apps for i – Phone, i – Pad, i – Pod Touch for downloading today came as Apple gives away its first free gift for ’12 Days of Gifts’,
    according to a Dec.

  • Suresh Sukumaran

    We should firstly become aware about Objectivity as well as Subjectivity. All Pervasive Intangibility Of Eternal Pure Consciousness is our inner Substratum. Objectivity & Godhood are two sides of the same coin.When one side of Objectivity gets reversed with the inward withdrawal of our 5 senses, then the other side is simply Godhood . Now Science is the Observation Post of objective compartmentalisation over the All Pervasive Eternity of Pure Consciousness.
    Now Vital Force manifestation from bacteria to man continued along [Eating,Sleeping,,Mating, birth / death cycle], undeterred upto man.Liberation from this manifestation cycle is possible only for man.By destroying these components of the rebirth cycle only Man could get liberated ! Here, instead of beating around the bush with excuses the sincerest self efforts of our own EGO,[time immemorially formed] towards happening of 100 % CELIBACY is the only way out ! In this context, The Mystical Kundalini Awakening becomes meaningful . This is Subtle .So could be viewed only from a subjective perspective. Objective approach won’t help us to proceed any further beyond this stage of No – Ego – Zone of Non Dual Truth,I am Pure Consciousness.

    I thought i was menopausal at the ripe old age of 41 haha. Then i thought i was bipolar type 2. I am used to asking and receiving so i asked and i found my answer. This is brilliant, ive saved the link to refer back as and when…Thank you

  • Dawn

    n How can you afford to disbelieve if God is speaking to others? I understand your fear, but it isn’t happening to you and to assume that it is evil is too judgmental for anyone following Christ’s teachings. I guess you can be glad that your not going through something like this, but it is a blessing and these people who are truly enduring this can be thankful that God has chosen them for higher position.

  • n

    I say grab the rosary (pray and reflect on the life of Christ) or say a novenna with the rosary. You will sleep through the night, you will feel a sense of forgiveness of others and great need ask for forgiveness of all your sins from those you have hurt and God. A sense of peace is left where you treat everyone as a close friend. All because you have let God into your life. Of course, if you have tampered with new age lies as these then you will not want anything to do with the rosary and you will not be able to say the prayers. Something will try to deter any possible way to visiting a priest exorcist to rid the evil you have invited into your life. God bless and my Mother Mary guide you back to Christ’s protection.

    • Anonymous

      How can you afford to disbelieve if God is speaking to others? I understand your fear, but it isn’t happening to you and to immediately pass it off as evil is too judgmental for anyone who truly wants to see through Christian eyes.

    • Hetepu

      At one point, Christianity was viewed as “new age lies”.

    i am very sorry i did not read any comments and just busted in….i discovered this very strange new territory and this night i really asked myself:AM I ACTUALLY INSANE?,and trough…a series of events and introspection,i’ve found this incredibly beautiful web page,and i dont care if nobody reads a word of what i’m saying,but typing the message itself it’s like a thanking mantra….

    i just wanna thank that i am shocked to find out that i am not insane,not in the brain,not in-the-mem-brain 😀

    every word just cured my heart,deeper and deeper, while reading the symptoms that i have for 2-3 weeks…
    and i’m really acting strange.and uber-lucid.not all the times.sometimes like there will be no more of this…it must have been a weird period…and almost miss it,even though sometimes i “hate it” [i can’t dance my happiness out,while working at the camera filming a concert,being near the orchestra…all the harmony built up in me,and all the images were more beautiful in the viewfinder…it almost made me sick of happiness overdose and i just wished i was sad or neutral…it was traumatic,in a way]

    and i was ..very convinced that it’s not insanity… but tonight i had a terrifying introspection and …well….i just feel like…like….now the doubt is really gonna fade away until infinity…
    thanks to you……. . . . . . . . . . . . . ….. . . … … ……. .. [bursts of creativity:D ].. .. . . … .. ….. .. …. … … ……. … ….

    “this guy is insane” people gonna say now HAHAHSHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

  • falloutam

    Funny, these are all things I’ve experienced the past several months, because…I’m pregnant.
    And a lot are legit symptoms and side-effects of pregnancy.
    This is not a dismissive comment, there may be some merit to growing a human being relative to enhanced enlightenment, and I have experienced many of these some times in years before this.

    • Stefan

      Nothing to do with your pregnancy. You haven’t experienced the high frequency waves invading your body. It’s a very painful process. This article explains the process in a very subtle way so for a normal human being to get a better understanding about it. The real thing is a nightmare. Think of like you’ve been taken up in the air on a tornado trip and thrown in the middle of nowhere. And you will be praying for god, jesus (small letters because, you know, you will be desperate to call outside help but the most humans will think you are mad and need a medical assistance like drugs) or whatever entity out there in the middle of the day, or the night. After all, I called my closest friends for help to ground me up. But hey, it will come to you one day

      • Maria

        Hello Stefan, I’m experiencing most of this symptoms at the moment, a computer and a printer broke down today at work and it was in a place where I was staying,I’m working as a waitress and the computer outside broke and I was the only person working outside, then i went to the bar and I spend some time in there making drinks before going for break, but when I came back they told me the printer in the bar has been broken, I worked for the company for 2 and half years now but printer or the computer has never been broken before. I would like to ask you how did you get grounded?

  • Chef Akshito

    You forgot to mention breathing.

  • wildberry

    Thank you so much for this article although these experiences are not new to me, i am pleased it is available to others who are going through many changes on their path or spiritual awakening because that’s exactly all it is. Go with it or “go with the flow” let nature be your guide.

  • martin

    I was following everything until you mentioned god and calling out archangels, shame you had to do that, I only got to 21. When will you religious nuts wake up out of your childish fantasies??

  • Lucas S

    Transformations suck! Ive been in one for over 4 months. Scariest time of my life.Right now experiencing the left brain fogginess and the blurry vision.I’m 16 and am in school! its horrifying

  • soundstreamer

    This is shockingly accurate, after losing my soul mate I was in a seriously dark place, until I started to seek a way out. The first time I tried meditation I could feel panick attacks coming due to the overwhelming sensations, also feeling like I am blending and twisting into the environment around me. After that I have been having most of these symptoms, the are clearing now as I start focusing more on myself and cutting ties with the past. The strange thing is that somedays I will remember several of long forgotten dreams in a rapid succession. It really does feel like the old me is dying and someone new emerging. Someone less vicious and more wise. But what a hard series of lessons these 6 month have been.

  • Owl

    These “symptoms” May seem ‘new-agey’, but they’re well documented. A glimpse into the writings and dialogues of Gopi Krishna and UG Krishnamurti are prime examples. Consciousness and body are not separate. Puberty and Menopause for example are both fundamentally ‘consciousness shifts’ that display all manner of strange symptoms as the entire physiological structures undergoes transformation. Some think that an expansion in consciousness is just some fantastic mental realization, when in fact it is something that involves the entire being, including the body and it’s physiology. Puberty and Menopause for example have their own inbuilt transformative mechanism that is triggered and unfolded automatically and ‘awakening’ is no exception. All shifts in consciousness are also shifts in the body, and this can be very painful, disorientating process.

  • Richard

    The Author of this page speaks from the heart, This is what makes him/her divine, Does not make it an illness, Believing and following your inner self is the key to enlightenment, We are all brothers and sisters in this world, let there be no hate for speaking your mind.. Ignorance and hate are those of the devil.

  • Christoff van detr Merwe

    First of all; much appreciation for sharing this insightful and calming information. It may just help me in my personal journey to a great extent.

    The also, I would like to add/ask about certain symptoms I have been experiencing that were not mentioned; irregular digestive tract sensations and bowel movements, which become increasingly uncomfortable with more grounding/heavy foods consumed.

    Has anyone else experienced these symptoms or have any additional information they might share?

    Thank you so much once again.


    • Lucas S

      I have been experiencing massive thoughts of illusion like the entire world was fake like past and future were just lifeless forms

    • wildberry

      Change your diet to more lighter foods. You seem to be experiencing a shift as your vibration rises. You are no longer on the lower more heavy frequency.

  • Cheyenne

    Dont you all see why everyone has sent nothing more than HATE towards this article. Who is love and who is hate? Until one is willing to truly open their eyes the malevolence in their lives will blind them until it is too late. It is all in front of your face. You may choose to listen or ignore. Stop ignoring what the scripture teaches and actually abide by the religion you state you claim. Follow by the TRUE higher power, god, spirit, beautiful essence of love that is overflown through you just by enlightening yourselves about what you are experiencing. Let this flow. Dont let fear scare you into ignorance. You know. We all do. Its whether we recognize it and deal with the fact that our greed is sin and are willing to give it up to live the divine life we were meant to live. Stop fighting the one who tried so hard to save you from only yourself. You can throw all your facts at the computer screen that you want, but those chills wont go away. You can excuse it all in your head all you want but theres a reason that demon was stirred up at reading the truth. It would never want you to know that it exists because Satans best trick was convincing the world he never exists.

  • Sara

    Well if you are getting this many negative comments you must really be onto something. And I have had most of the symptoms and I am only 21 so it’s definitely not a midlife crises or old age for me. And I believed most the stuff about Haarp and Chemtrails till about a year ago when this stuff started happening to me,and had to face every fear I had about what I thought was bad.

  • Marleen Steed

    I really enjoyed your blog and post! I hope that you have a look at my post about spiritual awareness. Thank you for your time and I hope to read more from you soon!

  • Pulelehua

    SUPER WOW on the article, small laugh on the comments, though. Unless you’ve lived it, you wouldn’t know. I have lived every last of the 51 signs mentioned here just within the last year — EVERY ONE. I am no “New Age” guru, I am in fact a born-again Christian. I am not an inexperienced soul floating through life, I am an educated professional in her 40’s whose raised children, been married for many years, works in corporate America. All sides — say whatever you want, I’VE HEARD IT ALL…. Again, unless you’ve lived it, you wouldn’t know. And UNLESS you LIVE it, you will never know, and that’s really fine by me. Thank you, Annarita, for this write…. :)

    • Cheyenne

      I know I started laughing so hard at all the fear in the comments. All the hate was overwhelming. Once your eyes are opened though you realize what it is that they’re fighting. Its sad but funny all in the same time. I pray for those people, that maybe one day they will truly find God.

      • wildberry

        Agree completely. What’s interesting is ‘why they have even bothered to take the time to read on this article’? They’re lost as far as i’m concerned.

    • Stefan

      You are walking on a thin ice here. You are slipping back to your delusional reality, my dear. It’s always a work in progress. This is not a one time event, as you know, time is an illusion and doesn’t exist.
      But that is ok. It was meant to be. You needed to be grounded to take a good care for your family. You have wonderful children, they need you. They are important. Guide them, read them books, good books, stay close to your family, reach out to people, simple things in life called love, empathy and awareness. Bless You!

  • Mayra Veronica Aruca

    What’s up colleagues, its fantastic article concerning educationand fully explained, keep it
    up all the time.

  • smarch

    Some insightful comments on here, but I will add a few.

    It is important not to confuse a “world awakening”, which I believe is happening, and to the calamities that we face, with any new age thought label. This awakening, that we are all connected is actually science, quantum physics. In defense of new age, many in this crowd are simply willing to look at new information, which is a good thing. Like any thought or philosophy though, there are both helpful and misleading concepts. Do not dismiss some information because of a preconceived idea(s). I believe those who are truly understanding what is going on are able to sort this out.

    As someone pointed out, much of this can be traced to the poisoning we are experiencing, and to label it as “awakening” is swallowing the blue pill for sure. I am not sure if the author is simply mislead or is a psych-op writer.

  • karran

    I am a active member WHO die 12 step recovery program & have experienced spiritual awakening.
    I have a spiritual mentor who is 100 years old & have sacrificed a lit FOR THE almighty. HIS truth,light and love have given me new birth.
    honestly speaking I am experiencing many symptoms given above AND thus support and respect the author OF this article.
    World is full OF ignorant fools who talk as they know everything which IS the subtle ego talking.
    I have no interest to know that which disease I am suffering from BUT I pass ON my gratitude to The writer whose work helps me a lot.
    very helpful and wise article, may God bless YOU!!
    Love AND regards

  • Craig

    I can’t believe this crap is the first thing that pops up on a Google search. What kind of show are you putting on here?

  • T.S.

    Great advice! Thanks for your wonderful insights.

  • Tony

    There’s little ‘new-age’ about this article, even if it’s very generic. Actually the impact on the body, mind and nervous system in conjunction with authentic spiritual awakening is well known – particularly in eastern sources. The mind and body are not separate. Real spiritual awakening to truth can be devastating event, at least initially – devastating for the person and the body.

    When the self drops away there are massive physiological implications as the central nervous system begins to break down and reform.

    The amalgamation of these ‘symptoms’ is not generic. Trust me, if this is happening to you, you will know it’s not ordinary or general. It’s literally going through the death process whilst awareness is still embodied.

    • Eva

      Yay! Some sanity prevails

  • Rajendranath Mehrotra

    Personally, I feel that you missed out a most reliable and proven method of energy transfer.
    Probably you know about the culture of Hinduism where younger ones/ disciples etc. are supposed to bend and touch feet of their Guru/ Parents/Teachers/ Elders and other persons whom you consider as respectful.
    In return, they put their hands on your bowed head. This way, their positive energy is transferred to you as you remain grounded (earthed) and as you know, Power flows cue to Potential difference.
    The same way, energy gets transferred when we fold our hands and end our heads as a mark of respect to such persons as they automatically touch your bent head for Ashirwad.
    (Why we fold hands?…when we fold hands, our hands get interconnected at the level of Heart and power flows through our heart via mind through a loop connection)

    Around 1965, 3~4 scientists had proved that by simply concentrating on the idol/object made of
    conductive material kept on an insulated platform, one can easily charge the idol/object and then reuse that charge by transferring that charge to Self by touching it in grounded condition.
    Note: I wish you to join my ‘facebook account’ if possible.

    Paul – Karen Bishop published a list of ascension symptoms in her book The Ascension Primer in 2006. This list by Annarita has been around since at least 2002 when it was first published on Sunfell’s site here: So not as naughty as you seem to think… if anything, it’s Karen who’s been naughty, although if these are genuine symptoms then I guess anyone who has experienced them can list them in this way.

  • AntiLieGuy

    This is another article for the STUPID sheeple. Most of these symptoms are the symptoms of chemtrail poisoning, which hides Planet X every day globally for the past ten years. Your entire governments are treasonous criminals!

  • Anonymous

    This list is great and I have experienced a great many of the symptoms. You are really a spiritual individual with a lot of wisdom and experience.
    Thank you so much for clarifying many of the experiences I have been going through.
    Peace and blessings and keep up the good work.

  • Drew

    I started to read this but as soon as angels were mentioned the alarm bells commenced to ring. the points you mention are interesting and could be the symptons for many things as well but bringing angel redemptions
    is not good- how do you know who these angels are = could be the gods of the Archons/jinns etc

    This is complete crap.

  • John

    I’m 100% for spiritual awakening and Icke was instrumental in helping me wake up but I am a little surprised he posted such a vague article.

    It reminds me of the weatherman/woman covering all bases by saying something like.
    “It will be mainly sunny with cloudy spells, dry with the possibility of showers and a slight chance of sleet or snow”.

    Many factors can cause most of the 51 items, too vague for me!

    one more symptom is that when i wake up in the morning 20 centimeter in my pants is like a rock

        Your 20 cm rock is nothing new to the male species it’s simply a natural part of nature. Nothing spiritual about that and at 20cms, certainly not worth mentioning! hahaha

  • Reb

    Well, apparently so far I’m the only one giving a positive response to this article. I don’t intend to convince anybody here or anywhere because each of us share a personal vision that is equal important. But I happen to be someone who went basically through all the points listed, so it could be interesting to balance a bit the atmosphere with my own experience, which might not be the same of someone else also going through it.

    I guess that the first thing that leads to confusion is the quantity of physical symptoms because they can relate to many illnesses and contexts. The difference stands in the way, the duration and the timing in which these symptoms arrive, develop and disappear together with the liberating post-effect associated. This is a key point that probably one can understand only when lived in first person and in a conscious way. And it’s easier to be conscious about it after a span of time when various points listed occurred and have been processed with the proper meaning.

    Obviously everybody will experience more or less symptoms and intensity depending on the lifestyle, nutrition habits, and especially patterns of thinking, heavy emotions unresolved and especially wrong belifs that express as physical illness. So if the spirit has to get rid to all that interfere with it’s evolution, it needs to do a sort of revert process to heal, and it will do it mainly through your body, which is the filter for the spirit in this physical plane.

    Together with this more physical process, as the body become lighter, the emotions more balanced and the mind clearer, the spirit can reach other states of consciousness, the psychic abilities increase and a higher vibration allows you to feel and connect with other dimensions and higher beings. And again it’s key how the syntomps interweaves in a certain way and timing. Then a big dose of discernment, a humble spirit and a pure heart will direct and ignite all the rest in a magical synchronized way to let you remember who you are and why you came here. This is actually all the point of the awakening.

    I hope that I helped raising a different perspective and attitute to the topic. I wish you all to go through many of the listed points and beyond. I would say that the first step is trying to understand and welcome the unkown without judging too hard the (yet) unexperienced. It would be good to do some deep research about the topic with an open heart and a conscious discernment. The best place to look, compare and find the truth is always inside…

    • Alex

      Thanks Reb for your common sense and the lovely way you express it.

  • Alex

    Dear Anarita,

    Bless you for your article and the information you provide.
    Most of these symptoms are indeed signs of Spiritual and of course of consciousness awakening. I am a practitioner of Shamanism and I have been working through these symptoms for quite a while now and contrary to popular belief, awakening is not always bliss or necessary a pleasant experience, it often scare us while the old programmings are crumbling.
    But what has touched my heart most is what you describe about feeling closer to animal and plants. I have always been an animal lover and active for animal rights but lately I have become even more aware that I indeed perceive them to be more “human” in their behavior. I can often anticipate what my cats are thinking or how they feel in an almost telepathic way. I dare to dream that one day they will be considered equal to us on this planet by all people instead of just a minority that against all odd will keep on fighting cruelty, vanity and insanity.

    Lots and Lots of Love.

    • Reb

      Thanks to You Alex, your comment wasn’t there when I put mine, I’m glad you brought your wise loving vision, I deeply share your consideration for animals and nature. A complete spiritual re·evolution will not be possible without an integration of all living beings, and telepathy is the key communication tool for avoiding all conflictive misunderstandings. We should all learn to master it.

      • Julia

        Thank you for this reply. I too have a telepathic nature and can “feel” animals, plants and people at a distance. I have since birth. I’m also aware that there has been an understanding of this for quite some time and experimentation in these fields of understanding so many of the comments above are valaid although alarming. In my perspective, because of the nature of our true history and the continual abuse of these natural traits and connections with the larger universe, we are in fact having a spiritual awakening of kundanini even with the alterations that some wish to use against mankind in their fear of loss. It is a natural progression that takes place. Nature seeks to perfect things. If a creature is not able to be in harmony with its environment it is altered or changed. This is true to humans as well for as oft as they believe to be above such laws. I find that even with this understanding now available to them and their continued crimes to control that which is not to be, as strange as some of the comparisons religions seek to use in a failed attmept to grasp the unexplainable. Thank you once again for speaking a thing I reasonate deeply with .

      After all the previous comments, I finally read this positive comment regarding the above article. I, myself, have been experiencing almost all of the symptoms for the last six months and until I have read all this, I will not be able to understand that what is happening to me is some sort of spiritual awakening. I am looking for answers before but now I come to realize everything and all the changes that is happening to me. I am finding it positive in my well being and I want to have more of this feelings.

    The first dozen or so symptoms are from various nutritional deficiencies. The rest, well didn’t really bother to even read them. This article is some of the most ridiculous new age blather I have ever seen. If these ‘symptoms’ bother you, start taking good quality vitamin/mineral supplements and you’ll be cured, or you can stay delusional if you prefer.

  • Alex Russell

    Another ‘New Age’ idiot.
    The chakra system was designed as an interface for demons to ‘plug-in’ to and feed off specific forms of human emotional energy.
    There is no ‘spiritual awakening’ because the spirit, or soul, or ‘higher self’ whatever you want to call it is an illusion – a mind-fuck.
    There is no great spiritual transformation coming that will allow you to escape from what you have created.
    We are here indefinitely, until this world is cleared – until all of humanity has cleared itself – until the mind consciousness system is stopped, permanently.
    We are all equally responsible.
    We have a long and arduous road ahead.
    Most will not make it.
    Many will simply remove themselves as they are unable to stand up from within the mind and walk through this process.
    If you think you know what courage is, you’re about to be tested in ways you cannot possibly imagine.
    Enjoy the ride.

  • mss

    51 points? come on! i think this author is compiling way too much stuff into a single article. some points actually DO relate to a spiritual awakening, but others are more like describing increased awareness of bodily malfunctions due to exposure to toxic elements in modern society. there are maybe 10-20 good points that i can say actually relate to spiritual awakening, the rest sounds like a mental disorder. i’ve def experienced a lot of them but dont really feel “spiritually awake” per se.

  • dimitri

    Definitely what is described are withdrawal symptoms with a strong dose of dissociation disorder thrown in. If you make it through these rough waters without “relapse” you’ll be a tougher nut to crack next time around.

    It appears that this guest writer has posted an article written by Karen Bishop as her own without crediting her which is a rather naughty. Apart from that, a lot of this “advice” is a dangerous generalization of symptoms, many of which are symptoms from electromagnetic polution, chemtrails and HAARP frequencies. Do awakening symptoms exist? Sure they do, I’ve been through most of what is on the list, but not all of it is benevolent and positive and once I developed the discernment, I realized the cause of many negative health effects was not the universe “blessing” me but part of a negative agenda to destabilize the human body. Then along come the new age gurus (also part of the agenda) who tell you using Orwellian double-speak that feeling like crap is good for you and sickness is health. Well it’s not, but there are many things we can do as individuals to negate this onslaught and claim our health back once we know that it is not right or normal to feel sick and tired all the time. And praying to arch angel michael (the Demiurge) as in #8 and 29 is the worst piece of advice ever.

    • Dani

      Frikkin A Paul. Well said and So true. New Age nonsense yet again.

    • Annie.

      I agree with this comment. I feel that the symptoms could well be a result of the material world and its unhealthy agenda. Sorting out the good from the bad is the trick. How? Anyone out there know? All I can think of, is hang in there! Know yourself and stick to what is right, beautiful and good…higher energies. Seek out the right way of eating and living. Shut out the electromagnetic frequencies. Get sunlight when you can from between the chemclouds. To breathe “air” and drink “water” just detox like mad. Be very very careful who you pray to. Things are not what they seem! There was a time generations ago, when each one of us had a right to air, water, fresh foods from nature, sunlight and all the rest. The fact that I have listed the things we need, and then saw that each one is really difficult to get at now, is a bit of a shocker, and tells us an awful lot!

      Keep positive out there!

      • Alex

        Yes Annie,
        you are really making very good points in your comments.
        I feel it is the right think to do to start counteracting what you describe as “the unhealthy agenda” in any possible way.We do indeed need to divide the wheat from the chaff and it is a difficult thing to do as we are bombarded on a daily basis with all sort of information, subliminal staff and electromagnetic frequencies and depleted food and water. But I do come across more and more people in my healing practice who describe a lot of these symptoms to me as well as experiencing them myself. I am being very careful, I am not s blind believer and I do not take anything at face value. We do not know anything for sure and I rely on feedback and what I can prove, but major changes in human consciousness are definitely happening, we do not have the full picture and as you say, nothing is what it seems because of the many, many factors to be taken into consideration. So yes, start detoxing like mad as you say and enjoy the ride no matter how bumpy it is.

        • Rachel

          everyone is being exposed to these chemicals. “Aware” or “unaware” everyone will have symptoms from metal toxicity and electromagnetic frequencies. I learned the hard way (by going through a sort of health hell, where I almost suffocated to death repeatedly in the middle of the night and in the early morning FOR YEARS. This was while experiencing many of these symptoms (listed by number in my comment above) including everything from heart palpitations and digestive problems to “sprinkles” (I tingled for two years) to increased sensitivities–these are not good, they are potentially life threatening. As I said befor, some of the symptoms above are “spiritual awakening” symptoms, others are part of everyday life, but many are symptoms of chemtrail illness(metal toxicity) electromagnetic frequencies, and morgellon. I have all three. Learn the hard way and pretend your ascending until you do (die) or protect yourself now with good quality air cleaners, metal chelation, and protection from emf. DISCERTION between reality and manipulation is very important. I have learned from experience. Most of you will have to do the same.

      It’s also called a pink cloud. I agree, this is total mumbo jumbo with no substance or basis to look back to. It’s broad and even the dumbest person with no soul could incipience some of these points.

      • John Garrett

        The AA as you refer to it provided me with a Twelve Step program that I used to transform my life from a point of suicidal despair to spiritually awake, alive joyous and free. Spiritual awakening is the reality I am in.
        Being bombarded by toxic aerosol spraying and all manner of abuse to our natural state, exists and who can say what symptom is attributed to what activity. I got sober 20 years ago and many of the symptoms listed in the article where definately symptoms of SPIRITUAL GROWTH

        • Michael

          Agreed :) Quite a few points were ridiculous, like ‘7. Food intolerances, allergies you never had before.’. But, until you’re Enlightened you can’t be expected to perceive perfectly.

          People develop allergies as they age sometimes. Pretty common thing to have your body react negatively to something in your environment, something neurological, or something latent in your genes. It can even just be genetic degradation causing your body to act out in response to something.

    A few years ago, I read a creepy article from a New Age website about the “symtoms of enlightenment.” Everything on the list was a symptom of chemtrail sickness and electromagnetic frequency sickness. It was speaking of “enlightenment” as if it were really “dying” and it was good and nice and everything will be ok as you …die! I might still have a copy of it because I printed it to remind myself how screwed up the new age religion is due to manipulation (and to show it to people so we could laugh at it).

    Some of the things listed in this article could be considered “symptoms of Spiritual Awakening,” while others are normal parts of everyday life, but many of them are symptoms of metal toxicity (chemtrail illness) electromagnetic sensitivities, and suprisingly, morgellons.

    Many of these things were listed on that creepy article (especially number 13) and several others speak for themselves to anyone who has ever had or who has morgellons, electromagnetic sensitivities, chemtrail illness, or metal toxicity. More specifically, numbers, 1, 2, possibly 3, 7, 8a, 8b, 8c, 9, 12, 13, 18, 19, possibly 21, 45, 46, 47, and 48 are symptoms of these illnessess.

    With no disrespect to the author, I would recommend that she look into the likely possibility that she may have some of these illnesses.

    • heyfattybum

      thats a very astute comment and mirrors exactly what i was thinking when reading this. sounds very new agey to me. pretty much everyone has those symptoms. i doubt i will attribute them to being more awake than anyone else. nonsense. the new age is a disease. all religions are. but tge bew age seems to gave an abswer go everythibg – surrender and acceot everythibg that comes your way. forget the worls and jyst get into the lotus position and nah mah your way through life….

    • Annie.


      I am so glad that you said this. These have been my thoughts as well.
      We do not want to be a “killjoy” but…..! how on earth can we tell the difference I wonder?
      EMFs are a huge problem to me now. My bioelectric body does not know how to cope despite all the superfood nourishment and rest I give it. So could both views be correct at the same time? If we are going to keep up with rising frequencies, surely our bodies which are more in the modern world of pollutants , than our minds need to be, will be trying to adapt, survive, and download higher energies all at the same time as the material world is pumping 4G and white light technologies, etc into us! Wow! That is not totally unlikely, and quite a thought to contend with. Any ideas?
