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 Ihave 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.

11. Changes in prayer or meditation. 
Not feeling the same sensations as before. Not having the same experience of being in contact with Spirit. Difficulty in focusing.

Advice: You may be in more instant and constant communion with Spirit now and the sensation may therefore be altered. You will adapt to this new feeling. You are actually thinking and acting in partnership with Spirit most of the time now. You may find your meditation periods shorter.

12. Power surges.
All of a sudden you are heated from head to toe. It is a momentary sensation, but uncomfortable. In contrast, some people have felt inexplicably cold. I have experienced both. More recently I experience waves or currents of energy rolling through me. Sometimes the energy seems so intense when it first comes into my body that I feel a little nauseated. But if I think of the energy as divine and let go of fear, I feel wonderful and enjoy the sensation. If you are an energy worker, you may have noticed that the heat running through your hands has increased tremendously. This is good.

Advice: If you are uncomfortable, ask your Higher Power, that if it be for your best and highest good, to turn down/up the temperature a bit.

13. A range of physical manifestations.
Headaches, backaches, neck pains, flu-like symptoms (this is called vibrational flu), digestive problems, muscular spasms or cramps, racing heartbeat, chest pains, changes in sexual desire, numbness or pain in the limbs, and involuntary vocalizations or bodily movements. Some of us have even had old conditions from childhood reappear briefly for healing.

Advice: Remember what I said about seeking medical help if you need it! If you have determined that this is not a medical condition, relax in the realization that it is only temporary.

14. Looking younger. 
Yippee! As you clear emotional issues and release limiting beliefs and heavy baggage from the past, you are actually lighter. Your frequency is higher. You love yourself and life more. You begin to resemble the perfect you that you really are.

15. Vivid dreams.
Sometimes the dreams are so real that you wake up confused. You may even have lucid dreams in which you are in control. Many dreams may be mystical or carry messages for you. And in some dreams, you just know that you are not “dreaming” — that what is happening is somehow real.

Advice: You will remember what is important for you to remember. Don’t force anything. Above all, stay out of fear.

16. Events that completely alter your life:
Death, divorce, change in job status, loss of home, illness, and/or other catastrophes — sometimes several at once! Forces that cause you to slow down, simplify, change, re-examine who you are and what your life means to you. Forces that you cannot ignore. Forces that cause you release your attachments. Forces that awaken your sense of love and compassion for all.

17. A desire to break free from restrictive patterns, life-draining jobs consumptive lifestyles, and toxic people or situations.
You feel a compelling need to “find yourself” and your life purpose — now! You want to be creative and free to be who you really are. You might find yourself drawn to the arts and nature. You want to unclutter yourself from things and people that no longer serve you.

Advice: Do it!

18. Emotional and mental confusion.
A feeling that you need to get your life straightened out–it feels like a mess. But at the same time you feel chaotic and unable to focus. See #45.

Advice: Put your ear to your heart and your own discernment will follow.

19. Introspection, solitude and loss of interest in more extroverted activities.
This stage has come as a surprise to many extraverts who formerly saw themselves as outgoing and involved. They say, “I don’t know why, but I don’t like to go out as much as before.”

20. Creativity bursts.
Receiving images, ideas, music, and other creative inspirations at an often overwhelming rate.

Advice: At least record these inspirations, for Spirit is speaking to you about how you might fulfill your purpose and contribute to the healing of the planet.

21. A perception that time is accelerating.
It seems that way because you have had so many changes introduced into your life at an unprecedented rate. The number of changes seems to be growing.

Advice: Breaking your day up into appointments and time segments increases the sense of acceleration .You can slow time down by relaxing into the present moment and paying attention to what’s at hand, not anticipating what’s ahead. Slow down and tell yourself that you have plenty of time. Ask your Higher Power to help you. Keep your focus on the present. Try to flow from one activity to the next. Stay tuned to your inner guidance. You can also warp time by asking for it. Next time you feel rushed, say, “Time warp, please. I need some more time to —–.” Then relax.

22. A sense of impendingness.
There is a feeling that something is about to happen. This can create anxiety.

Advice: There is nothing to worry about. Things are definitely happening, but anxiety only creates more problems for you. All your thoughts — positive or negative– are prayers. There is nothing to fear.

23. Impatience.
You know better, but sometimes you can’t help it. You want to get on with what seems to be coming your way. Uncertainty is not comfortable.

Advice: Learn to live with the uncertainty, knowing that nothing comes to you until you are ready. Impatience is really a lack of trust, especially trust in your Higher Power. When you focus on the present, you will experience miracles — yes, even in traffic.

24. A deep yearning for meaning, purpose, spiritual connection, and revelation.
Perhaps an interest in the spiritual for the first time in your life. “Constant craving”, as k.d. lang says. The material world cannot fulfill this longing.

Advice: Follow your heart and the way will open up for you.

25. A feeling that you are somehow different.
A disquieting sense that everything in your life feels new and altered, that you have left your old self behind. You have. You are much greater than you can possibly imagine. There is more to come.

26. “Teachers” appear everywhere with perfect timing to help you on your spiritual journey.
people, books, movies, events, Mother Nature, etc. Teachers may appear to be negative or positive when you are trapped in polarity thinking, but, from a transcendent perspective, they are always perfect. Just what you need to learn from and move on. By the way, we never get more than we are ready to master. Each challenge presents us with an opportunity to show our mastery in passing through it.

27. You find a spiritual track that makes sense to you and “speaks to you” at the most profound levels.
Suddenly you are gaining a perspective that you would never have considered before. You hunger to know more. You read, share with others, ask questions, and go inside to discover more about who you are and why you are here.

28. You are moving through learning and personal issues at a rapid pace.
You sense that you are “getting it” quite readily.

Advice: Keep remembering that things will come to you when they are ready to be healed. Not sooner. Deal with whatever comes up with courage and you will move through the issues rapidly.

29. Invisible presences.
Here is the woo-woo stuff. Some people report feeling surrounded by beings at night or having the sensation of being touched or talked to. Often they will wake with a start. Some also feel their body orbed vibrate. The vibrations are caused by energetic changes after emotional clearing has taken place.

Advice: This is a sensitive topic, but you may feel better blessing your bed and space around it before you sleep. I rest assured that I am surrounded only by the most magnificent spiritual entities and am always safe in God’s care. Sometimes, however, the fear gets to me, and I call in Archangel Michael and/or Archangel Uriel. I don’t beat myself up for being afraid sometimes. I forgive myself for not always sovereign at 3:00 a.m.

30. Portents, visions, “illusions”, numbers, and symbols.
Seeing things that have spiritual importance for you. Noticing how numbers appear synchronistically in your awareness. Everything has a message if you take the time to look. I enjoy the experience of “getting the messages.” What fun!

31. Increased integrity.
You realize that it is time for you to seek and speak your truth. It suddenly seems important for you to become more authentic, more yourself. You may have to say “no” to people whom you have tried to please in the past. You may find it intolerable to stay in a marriage or job or place that doesn’t support who you are. You may also find there is nowhere to hide, no secrets to keep anymore. Honesty becomes important in all your relationships.

Advice: Listen to your heart. If your guidance tells you not to do something, speak up and take action. Say “no”. Likewise, you must also say “yes” to that which compels you. You must risk displeasing others without guilt in order to attain spiritual sovereignty.

32. Harmony with seasons and cycles.
You are becoming more tuned to the seasons, the phases of the moon and natural cycles. More awareness of your place in the natural world. A stronger connection to the earth.

33. Electrical and mechanical malfunctions.
When you are around, lightbulbs flicker, the computer locks up, or the radio goes haywire.

Advice: Call on your angels, guides, or Grace Elohim to fix it or put up a field of protection of light around the machine. Surround your car with bluelight. Laugh.

34. Increased synchronicity and many small miracles.
Look for more of these.

Advice: Synchronistic events tell you if you are heading in the right direction or making the correct choices. Honor these clues and you cannot go astray. Spirit uses synchronicity to communicate to you. That’s when you begin to experience daily miracles. See #30.

35. Increased intuitive abilities and altered states of consciousness.
Thinking of someone and immediately hearing from them. More synchronicities. Having sudden insights about patterns or events from the past. Clairvoyance, out-of-body experiences, and other psychic phenomena. Intensified sensitivity and knowing. Awareness of one’s essence and that of others. Channeling angelic and Christ-consciousness energies.

36. Communication with Spirit.
Contact with angels, spirit guides, and other divine entities. Channeling. More and more people seem to be given this opportunity. Feeling inspiration and downloading information that takes form as writing, painting, ideas, communications, dance, etc.

37. A sense of Oneness with all.
A direct experience of this Wholeness. Transcendent awareness. Being flooded with compassion and love for all life. Compassionate detachment or unconditional love for all is what lifts us up to higher levels of consciousness and joy.

38. Moments of joy and bliss.
A deep abiding sense of peace and knowing that you are never alone.

39. Integration.
You become emotionally, psychologically, physically, and spiritually stronger and clearer. You feel as if you are in alignment with your Higher Self.

40. Living your purpose.
You know you are finally doing what you came to earth for. New skills and gifts are emerging, especially healing ones. Your life/work experiences are now converging and starting to make sense. You are finally going to use them all.

Advice: Listen to your heart. Your passion leads you to where you must go. Go within and ask your Higher Self, “What is it you would have me do?” Watch for synchronicities. Listen.

41. Feeling closer to animals and plants.
To some people, animals now seem to be more “human” in their behavior. Wild animals are less afraid. Plants respond to your love and attention more than ever. Some may even have messages for you.

42. Seeing beings of other dimensions.
The veil between dimensions is thinner, so it is not surprising. Just stay in your sovereignty. You are more powerful than you can ever imagine, so do not entertain fear. Ask your guides for help if you slip into fear.

43. Seeing a person’s true form or seeing loved ones with a different face — past life or parallel life.

44. Physically manifesting thoughts and desires more quickly and efficiently.

Advice: Monitor your thoughts. All thoughts are prayers. Be careful what you ask for.

45. Left-brain fogginess.
Your psychic abilities, your intuitive knowing, your feeling and compassion, your ability to experience your body, your visioning, your expressiveness all emanate from the right brain. In order for this side of the brain to develop more fully, the left brain must shut down a little bit. Normally the left-hemisphere’s capacity for order, organization, structure, linear sequencing, analysis, evaluation, precision, focus, problem-solving, and mathematics dominate our often less-valued right brain. What results are memory lapses, placing words in the wrong sequence, inability or no desire to read for very long, inability to focus; forgetting what you are just about to say; impatience with linear forms of communication (audio or written formats); a feeling of spaciness, being scattered; losing interesting research or complex information; feeling bombarded with words and talk and information; and a reluctance to write. Sometimes you feel dull and have no interest in analysis, lively intellectual discussion, or investigation. On the other hand, you might find yourself drawn to the sensate: videos, magazines with photos, beautiful artwork, movies, music, sculpting, painting, being with people, dancing, gardening, walking, and other kinesthetic forms of expression. You may search for spiritual content, even science fiction.

Advice: You may discover that if you allow your heart and your right brain to lead you, the left will then be activated appropriately to support you. And someday we will be well-balanced, using both hemispheres with mastery.

46. Dizziness.
This occurs when you are ungrounded. Perhaps you have just cleared a big emotional issue and your body is adjusting to your “lighter” state.

Advice: Ground yourself by eating protein. Sometimes “comfort food” feels right. Don’t make any food right or wrong for you. Use your guidance to know what you need at any given moment. Take your shoes off and put your feet in the grass for a couple of minutes.

47. Falling, having accidents, breaking bones.
Your body is not grounded or perhaps your life is out of balance. Or your body may be telling you to slow down, examine certain aspects of your life, or heal certain issues. There is always a message. When I recently broke my ankle, I understand that my ankle was taking on what I myself refused to deal with. And that was all of the above.

Advice: Stay grounded by taking your shoes off and putting your feet in the grass; even better, lie down on the grass without a blanket under you. Feel the earth beneath you. Get out in nature. Slow down and pay attention. Be mindful about what you are doing. Feel your feelings when they come up. Stay in the present. Surround yourself with blue light when you are feeling shaky.

48. Heart palpitations.
A racing heart usually accompanies a heart opening. It only lasts for a few moments and means that the heart is re-balancing itself after an emotional release. I had one episode that terrified me: I woke up in the middle of the night, my heart pounding. I thought it was going to come right out of my chest. It only happened once and was, I understand, a huge heart-chakra opening. But I did check it out. There is nothing wrong with my heart.

Advice: Remember what I said about getting medical attention when needed. Consult your doctor about any conditions you are not comfortable with.

49. Faster hair and nail growth.
More protein is being used in the body. Too bad we can’t tell the body where to grow the hair and where not to grow it. (Or can we? Hmmm.)

50. A desire to find your soulmate or twin flame.
More than ever before, the idea that we can have a relationship that matches who we are seems more desirable.

Advice: The truth is, we have to be the kind of person we want to attract. We have to love ourselves and where we are right now before we can attract a more “perfect” mate. The work begins at home. Here is how I think it works: Hold the desire for this person in your heart, but without attachment. Expect that someday you will meet someone who is more suited to you, but let go of any expectations as to who this will be and how it will happen. Focus instead on cleaning up your own life and being the kind of person you want to be. Be happy now. Enjoy your life. Then you may see…..

51. Memories surface.
Body memories, suppressed memories, images of past lives and/or parallel lives. We are healing and integrating all our “selves”, so expect to have some of these experiences.

Advice. Keep in mind that it is best to recall what only what comes to mind, leave the rest alone, don’t analyze everything to death (because you will be stuck in the tape loop of infinite issues to process), and feel your feelings as they come up. Ask for help from your guides.

  1. Rachel says:

    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 says:

      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. says:

      Hi.

      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?

      Annie

  2. alex says:

    * You’d have better luck with a ‘gypsy’ psychic at the state fair, pumping you for gullible generalities…This pretty well covers everything & the kitchen sink & I’m of an open mind & definitely not a skeptic.This is a ‘one size fits all’ that would fit through any keyhole…My opinion…flagrant & frivolous filler, pith-pap…while we still have free speech.

    • rogger says:

      I agree
      these symptoms Seem like the same distressing signs of a nervous breakdown and depression….quite dangerous of the author to suggest all these are normal and should be accepted/encouraged.

    • alex says:

      * I’m thinking that an editor was asleep at the wheel here-lol

  3. rene says:

    popule sleeping medications and other meds casue brain crawl,esp w/ wdrawal effects

    not a sign of awakening at all .. it’s a symptom of w/drawal or perhaps even depression…menopause neuro path transmitters alteration in brain chemistry

  4. dimitri says:

    Recovering alcoholics and addicts of all stripes exhibit these “symptoms”. In AA it’s called connecting to your Higher Power.

    • kbear says:

      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.

    • Alex says:

      The AA Does not have a clue.

      • John Garrett says:

        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

  5. Paul says:

    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 says:

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

    • Annie. says:

      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!

        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 says:

          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.

    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.

    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.

  16. Alex says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

        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 .

    • Lea says:

      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.

    • Anonymous says:

      Thankyou. Finally a positive response. Be Well.

  17. Reb says:

    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…

    “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!

    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.

  27. Tony says:

    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.

  31. smarch says:

    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.

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

  33. Pulelehua says:

    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…. :)

      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.

  35. Sara says:

    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.

  36. Cheyenne says:

    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.

  37. Christoff van detr Merwe says:

    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.

  39. Owl says:

    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.

  40. soundstreamer says:

    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.
