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.

10 Tips to manage your spiritual awakening symptoms:
1. Start a journal or keep a diary

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.

“Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.”

Learn how to breathe. After all, breath is the essence of life and being. Learning correct breathing techniques not only enhances clarity of mind but helps to restore the body’s natural flow of energy. Learn to let your breath go slow and deep into the centre of your being. Continue to follow your breath, feeling it go in and out. Just follow it with awareness. Stay awake and aware. It’s not about the breath but the awareness. Excerpt from The Life Purpose Workbook by Avis Williams
