How to Manage Your Spiritual Awakening Symptoms

How to Manage your Spiritual Awakening Symptoms

Spiritual awakening symptoms occur when there’s a lot of spiritual energy moving through the physical body. Your physical body does not have enough capacity to contain the energy being received, so it needs to release the unneeded or excess energy. To do this we need to ground ourselves, grounding means to allow ourselves to be fully present here with our physical bodies and physical reality aspect. We entrain with the frequency of the earth itself, your body becomes more relaxed as you tune into that frequency. Grounding is the perfect remedy for anyone who is feeling dizzy, space out, drained, confused, overwhelmed, panicked, or angry.

Below are some tips on how to manage your spiritual awakening symptoms. I Hope what I share helps to ease your spiritual awakening symptoms.

Tips to manage your spiritual awakening symptoms:

1. Start a journal or keep a diary

Keep a journal of your spiritual awakening symptoms. write about what happened during the day, your thoughts, feelings, experiences, and possible triggers. when you look back on what I have written, you will notice patterns and possible triggers that may have caused or aggravated your symptoms.

2. Eat root vegetables

Anything that grows under the surface of the earth, will help you connect with earth’s energy. vegetables such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, turnips, carrots, beetroot, and radishes.

3. Have a Salt Bath

Cleanse your aura and your physical body by soaking in a steaming tub of water with sea salt, Himalayan salt, or Hawaiian salt. Sit for about 20 minutes.

4. Be in nature

Go to the park or your garden and hug a tree. Place your arms around the tree and feel your energy combine with the tree’s energy. Silently in your mind, say, “I am now grounded, thank you.” Imagine the unwanted energy flowing out of you, and is being sent down the tree roots into the ground. Continue until you feel you are grounded.

Walk barefoot on the earth. You can also work with your hands in the earth and sit or lie down on the ground.

5. Grounding Exercises

Exercise is a great way to feel grounded and connected with your physical body. Some great exercises for grounding are walking, cross crawls, marching, yoga and yoga mountain pose (Tadasana) helps to align the body. Watch video – mountain pose (Tadasana)

6. Try breathing

“Breath is the essence of life and being, within breath is a vital energy or life force called prana.”

“Learning correct breathing techniques not only enhances clarity of mind but helps to restore the body’s natural flow of energy.” – The Psychic Mind by Avis J Williams

Try Alternate nostril breathing it will balance the left and right brain hemispheres. Read post How to practice alternate nostril breathing


7. Wear grounding colours

Colours are also energy, wearing colours such as red, black or brown, will help you feel grounded or you can also have the colours in your surroundings.

8. Use Essential Oils

Use these essential oils for grounding tea tree, myrrh, cedarwood, vetiver, patchouli or lavender.

Get a 50ml or larger glass spray bottle.  Fill the bottle with spring water, drop a few drops of essential oil. Shake it up and spray it on yourself.

9. Use a smudge stick

Native Americans use smudging in their healing ceremonies to cleanse any negative or residual energy. Use white sage or Satya Sai Baba Nag Champa. Light the smudge stick and use your hand to direct the smoke over your head, face, front/sides of your body, under your feet, around your hands and arms, and as much of your back as you can reach. You can also use smudging to cleanse environments or objects.

10. Focus on your physical life

Do any activity that keeps you in the present moment. Do something you are passionate about and enjoy like spending time with family or friends, watch a movie, create something or learning something new. Read this article on how to start living in the present.

Spiritual Awakening Signs & Symptoms

Spiritual Awakening Signs

A spiritual awakening is triggered by some kind of event in your life. Such as a passing of a loved one, participating in spiritual development events/workshops, visiting sacred places, it could me anything each and every spiritual awakening experience is entirely different, unique and specific to the individual. For me my spiritual awakening happened after, I went to a psychic development workshop. I believe my spiritual awakening happened because it was the right time in my life to start fulfilling my soul’s purpose.

Below are some of the spiritual awakening signs and symptoms that I have experienced. I Hope what I share can validate what you’re going through.

READ POST:How to Manage Your Spiritual Awakening Symptoms 

Here are the spiritual awakening signs & symptoms:

1.Seeing sacred geometry and sacred symbols

Within my mind’s eye and with my physical eyes, I repeatedly saw complexed sacred geometry and ancient symbols. One of the symbols I saw was a spiral which is the oldest symbol known to be used in spiritual practices, reflects the universal pattern of growth and evolution.

2. Heighten sensory perception

All of my human senses were heightened. I knew things without knowing how I knew. I can hear sounds that no one else could hear. I can feel a cool breeze around my head and felt tingling around my body. I notice strong smells when no one else was in the room. In my mind’s eye, I can see light, images, patterns and people.

3. Physical body changes

Within in a week of my spiritual awakening, my body rapidly lost weight. I could see more clearly with my right eye, the volume in my right ear lowered and occasionally had heart palpations.

4. Seeing number patterns

Anywhere I went I could see the numbers 111, 1111, 333, 444, 222 etc. I saw the numbers on clocks, kitchen appliances, signposts, doors etc. Read more about angel numbers

5. Increased synchronicity

I experienced an increase in synchronicity. The universe likes to communicate in repetition. They use people, symbols, numbers, songs and objects to send a message that may be repeated so that you will take notice.

6. Changes to sleep patterns

I wake up several times during the night between 2.00am – 4.00am. In the bedroom, I can hear whispers or sounds and perceive smells and scents when there’s no one physically in the room. I can sometimes smell perfume, flowers or food, these scents are originated in the spirit world and are used to help alert us to the presence of spirits. A specific scent was connected to a person who has passed on.

7. Hearing high-pitched sounds

I hear high pitched sounds and voices in my right ear, it can happen anytime during the day or night.

8. Lucid and Vivid Dreams

On occasion I have meaningful dreams,  I would receive knowledge, information and advice.

9. Messages from higher beings

I receive messages from my higher self, guides, love-ones, ascended masters and angels. They communicate using one or more of our six human senses.

10. Changes in appetite and eating habits

I had a sudden desire to eliminate and reduce my intake of certain foods and drink that my body no longer needed to consume.

11. Can’t be around anything extremely negative

I am very sensitive; anything negative has an effect on my energy. I have stopped watching the news, reading newspapers and limit the time I spend around negative people.

12. Desire to discover your soul purpose

I manage to discover my life purpose and soul mission by tapping into my intuition.

13. Emotionally Sensitive

I have bouts of unexplained depression or persistent anxiety and sudden waves of sadness, joy, frustration and various other emotions.

14. Feeling ungrounded

I feel dizzy, spaced out or overwhelmed, at times. This is the natural reaction of the physical body to intense energy moving through it. Your physical body does not have enough capacity to contain the energy being received, so it needs to be released.

15. Want to learn more about spirituality and metaphysics

I have a yearning to discover who I am and to awaken my true potential. So I practice and study meditation, spirituality, psychic development, spiritual healing and personal development.

16. Feeling you don’t belong in this physical reality

Sometimes have a strong desire to go home, and reconnect with my spiritual self.
