10 Positive Signs Your Having A Spiritual Awakening

What does it mean to be awake? What are the characteristics of the state of ‘spiritual wakefulness’ or ‘enlightenment’? Is there a way to tell if you are having one?

Chances are- if you are reading this article, you are well on your way. Things or experiences might seem different, but is it just your perception? Is there a bigger change happening in the world around us?
Spiritual awakening is not an overnight venture. It’s simply a term that helps define the beginning of your initiation on the spiritual path. When we undergo a spiritual awakening, we literally “wake up” to life. The spiritual awakening process is complex, multi-layered, and different for everyone. In reality, it cannot be fit into neat categories. Therefore, it is possible that you may experience none of these, one of these, or all of these:
Let’s start with the positive effects. Spiritual awakening is a powerful, jolting experience. It’s everything but easy. Here are 10 positive symptoms that you might be experiencing in your everyday life:
10 Positive Symptoms of Spiritual Awakening
1. Increased Empathy And Intuition
You find yourself listening less to what people say and more to the feeling or intention behind their words or actions.
2. Feeling Drawn To Nature
We may get distracted when walking outside (even during a busy day) around nature just looking at flowers, birds or the sky.
3. An Aversion To Negative People Or Behaviours
You find yourself less interested in gossip, pettiness or the judgment of others.
4. A Desire For A United Community
You seem more DRAINED by ‘us versus them’ arguments, energies or consciousness (be it politics, sports, nationalism, racial divides, etc.).
5. Feeling And Believing That All Life Is Sacred
We value all life as sacred. You may find yourself taking small bugs outside to live and perform their purpose (rather than squashing them).
6. Your Consciousness Feels Renewed
You begin to look back on your own life memories as only opinions of your experience versus a concrete reality. You realize now that your entire life experience can be different based on the consciousness you hold.
7. You Are Living In ‘The Moment’
We are less interested in asking yourself “what if”questions. For example, “What if this person never left me” or “What if I had a better childhood?”
8. Increased Inner Peace
You don’t mind a quiet time or alone time. You now tend to shut off the T.V. and social media more often recently.
9. Compassion And Positivity Surges Through You
Rather than competing or wanting ill will for another, you hope we all make it and all are happy because in reality we all are connected.
10. Enhanced Authenticity
You need less attention in crowds, public situations or around others. Rather you are content to watch, assist and help others to see their own truth and beauty.
Coming into your own has a cost. It’s not going to be easy to open your eyes to the physical world around you as you engage with your community, your family, and your self on a deeper level. Here are a few side effects of spiritual awakening that might at first be frightening or hard to accept as you forge your journey:
Just remember- life is happening for you, not to you.
