KELLY ASHLEY: “Top 23 Spiritual Awakening Signs and Symptoms”

adec7-gaiabirth2bcopy

If you’re reading this you’ve probably spent some time scouring the internet looking for lists of signs or symptoms of spiritual awakening.  It’s probably not the first time you’ve searched for that either.  How do I know this?  Because I was once in the same position — endlessly trawling the internet in the search for answers too.  I didn’t really find them at the time and I secretly worried that I might have gone mad.  Fear not, dear friend, you are absolutely not crazy (although some of your spiritual experiences might be).  You’re going through a spiritual awakening.

Let’s take a look at some of the signs and symptoms that can be experienced during the awakening:

1.  Physical sensitivity — sensitive to light, noise, certain foods

2.  Emotional sensitivity — extreme highs or extreme lows, wild or erratic mood swings, unexplained depression or sudden waves of emotion

3.  Energetic sensitivity — picking up on energies or feelings from people, places or things. Feeling overwhelmed by your own energy or others

4.  Unusual sensations — tingling, tickly feelings, buzzing or prickling, shivers or shaking

5.  Feeling drawn to metaphysics or spirituality — healing, religion, meditation, practices etc.

6.  Ringing in the ears or feeling frequency changes

7.  Synchronicity — seeing number patterns, peculiar coincidences, meaningful signs or symbolism

8.  Lack of interest in negative vibrations or interests, loss of interest in old friendships, places or behaviors

9.  Knowing that something has changed within you or your life, even if you can’t explain what

10.  Becoming more introverted or sensitive, craving more time alone

11.  Aversion to superficial, fake or inauthentic people, places or things

12.  A deep yearning to find meaning in life, to help others, to fulfill a life purpose or soul mission

13.  Powerful aversion to traditional work, the system, or having to work for money

14.  Increased psychic or intuitive abilities — senses, visions, knowing, hearing or even seeing

15.  Changes in appetite and eating habits — you may find you are suddenly much hungrier, craving protein or unusual foods.  Sudden aversion to drinking alcohol, eating meat, chemical laden food or unnatural substances, or less need to eat at all.

16.  Changing sleep patterns — unable to sleep, waking during the night feeling wired or overstimulated, sometimes more than once

17.  Sudden health complications, ailments or injuries — old issues held in your energetic blueprint are being released

18.  Vivid, meaningful dreams, or lucid dreaming

19.  Confusion in life or inability to make decisions

20.  Impatience — perhaps you know something is supposed to happen and you feel you literally can’t wait for it, or you feel a soul call or life purpose that needs to be fulfilled.  A feeling of time running out

21.  Communications with spirit, Creator, guides or ascended masters, angels or even ET beings

22.  Awareness of soul mates, twin flames or soul counterparts

23.  Past life memories or current life issues rising to the surface to be released and healed

Experiencing something that’s not on the list?  Bingo!  That’s exactly how I felt when I searched too.  It’s not good for us, and I actually questioned whether I should create a list at all because it encourages you to fit your experience into a pre-defined framework.  That means, that if your experience doesn’t fit the list, you’ll begin to question yourself and everything you’ve been through.

You might even secretly fret that you’ve gone mad (don’t worry, I did too). I want you to know that each and every awakening experience is entirely different, unique and specific to the individual.

You are an amalgamation of all your past lives, all of your parallel lives, all your heartaches and belief systems.  Awakening is the process of UNDOING those exact things.  Its the process of releasing everything that isn’t who you truly are so that you can identify the divinity beneath.  That unraveling isn’t the same for everyone — it can’t possibly be.  You have a divine reason for being here — you had something special and unique to bring.  Don’t stifle that by defining the way your awakening must go.  Allow your soul to lead the way — don’t squeeze it through someone else’s framework — even mine.  Your soul knows exactly what its doing, let it get on with it.

However, I know from first hand experience that that isn’t so easy.  Awakening can be a crazy time and feel incredibly out of control.  You need to find a way to flow through the awakening without it throwing you around like a rag doll (which it will do, if you let it). And that involves grounding.

Grounding is the foundational step to moving through your awakening more quickly, easily and joyfully.

Why Is Grounding Essential?

Spiritual awakening can be very confusing.  It can leave you feeling lost, lonely and disconnected (not to mention, crazy).  It can simultaneously be the highest point of spiritual connection and the lowest point of physical existence.  It can even bring you to crisis point.  But here’s the thing — it only becomes confusing, frightening or isolating when you are out of balance.  You’re up too high without a hold in the physical.  The higher you float, the less of a grip on reality you have and the harder it is to handle physically being here.  Balance is needed, and that starts with grounding.

The purpose of awakening is to balance heaven and earth — high spiritual connectedness with physical presence — it’s like merging two worlds.  All of that wonderful connectedness, experience and insight can feel pretty useless if you’re not grounded in the physical to process it, share it or do something with it — and you’re definitely not going to be able to do that if your body, mind and energy are all over the place.  Give your mind a chance to catch up to these energetic changes and see the magic that happens.  You brain begins to make cognitive shifts.  Your mind can process and understand the experience.  Wonderful insights surge forward that can become the basis of your new renewed self and life.  You see, grounding is vital to get out of that stagnant, stuck and stale energy and step forward into the ‘new world’ that we’ve all been waiting for.

Struggling to Ground Yourself?

It’s challenging!  I know this because I went through the exact same thing during my own awakening experience.  The old methods just didn’t work (especially in cases of spiritual emergence). I tried everything — visualization, meditation, crystals, essential oils, incense.  Nothing worked.  It took a long time of repeatedly and desperately trying to unsuccessfully ground myself with these methods to realize that they didn’t bring me back down into my body, they were taking me back up.  I could see that because of the intensity of my spiritual awakening, they just wouldn’t work.

The best practices for grounding yourself during spiritual awakening are actually non-spiritual practices.  Focus on your body.  Focus on being present.  What can you perceive with your physical senses?  What can you do that’s actually fun and makes you want to stay in your body, present in the moment?  Try walking in nature, eating a delicious meal or laughing with some friends.  Grounding is the physical, earthly part of the merging process.  Do earthly, physical things and in time, you’ll find that your awakening becomes much more stable, flowing and enlightening.  The way it should be.

JOHN HOLLAND: “Synchronicities And You”

Synchronicities and You.png

Is your soul trying to get your attention?

Synchronicities and so-called coincidences are clear signs that the Divine Source is knocking on your door.  Sometimes it could be a soft tap or for those times when you’re not paying attention, it could be a loud bang!

When source works through synchronicities, it can manifest itself in some pretty unique ways.  I have my own definition and refer to them as my divine nudges.  For example, it’s when I hear the same phrase or saying from more than one person in a day?  It’s when the same numbers keep showing up in your life?  Has someone mentioned the same person you were just thinking of?  Have you met someone out of the blue who seemed to answer a question that you were just pondering?

How to tell if it is synchronicities?

These are all just signs for you, and I encourage you to pause, be open, and pay attention but most importantly, acknowledge that the source is sending you a message.

I know this man who was having a hard time switching careers and it was clearly causing him a lot of stress with all the unanswered questions.  He was offered a new job and wasn’t sure if he wanted to leave the security of his existing job where he’d worked for years.  One day as he was driving to work and in a state of indecisiveness, he found himself asking himself all the nagging questions that torment us at such times:

  • “Should I take the new job?”
  • “Will I be happy?”
  • “Am I doing the right thing?”

At that precise moment as he was churning the questions over and over, he looked up and saw a bus drive by and for some reason, he read the billboard on the side of the bus. It was a Nike advertisement with the slogan:

“Just Do It!”

These are not just coincidences!  I don’t believe there are accidents in this intelligent universe.  It’s times like these that you should ask yourself: “What am I supposed to be learning or doing right now?”  I feel when these synchronistic events happen, it’s the inner workings of your soul showing up in your outside physical world.

Tips on tapping into, and working with, synchronicities

This week try to notice if synchronistic events are happening around you and your life.  Here are a few tips to assist you to Begin to notice and act on those divine nudges.

The more you notice and pay attention to meaningful synchronistic events and coincidences, the easier it gets for them to multiply in your life.

  • Notice when you run in to people unexpectedly.  Really listen to what’s being said in the conversation and the hidden message that could be there for you.
  • If there’s a certain problem in your life, try to let it go and turn it over to synchronicity.  What you’re saying to the Divine Source is: “OK, show me! Let me be aware and act when the answer or guidance is being presented to me.”
  • Work with your journal and intuition to become even more aware when source is knocking on your door.
  • Believe that it’s possible.  A positive attitude enhances the experience, just as a negative attitude will shut it down.

This article maybe the first from me you have seen, you may have had this forwarded to you from a friend, or someone might have simply had you read this after you just told them of a so called coincidence that has or keeps showing up in your life.  You were meant to receive this newsletter with this message.  This is another example of synchronicity trying to get your attention.

As I’ve said: “There are no accidents!  I truly believe that life tries to show us miracles every day, if we would simply notice — and act upon them.”

Live a Soul-Filled Life!

MASHUBI ROSHELL: “Developing Discernment: Learning to See Truth in Today’s Complex World”

discernment

Learning to See Truth in Today’s Complex World:

A new time is upon us as the many challenges of today’s world escalate and cry out for healing.  What is needed now is concerted action on the part of each individual, to join together with others to create positive change in the world.  This is not always as easy as it sounds, for the problems we face individually and collectively are multi-layered, and the process of attempting to create positive change activates many forces that oppose change.

Another challenge faced by anyone who wished to help create positive change in the world, is that of developing discernment and the ability to see underneath the surface of things to understand what is really going on.  This ability to discern truth will become even more important in the years ahead.

In today’s world, there is much at stake and all of us have a part to play in helping to create the kind of world that we wish to leave to our children and grandchildren.  How then do we navigate the enormous complexities of today’s world, and make the kinds of decisions and choices that will have a positive outcome?

The following are some ways that you can begin to hone your innate sense of truth and to develop discernment in relation to the information you receive.

1. Truth has a vibration, a quality of energy that can be felt.

We are born with the ability to sense this, and many of us had to “learn” to ignore our truth sense in order to survive in the world.  Truth can be felt in the body, the mind and the heart.  You can begin to develop discernment by having the intention to do so.  Your intention will activate a learning process that will create a healing process that restores your natural inner sense of truth.

2. Remember that all information has a bias.

In today’s world, the mainstream media sources of information all have vested financial interests and biases that they transmit through their broadcasts.  You need to develop the ability to question what you are hearing or seeing, to do your own research, and then asking your “inner truth meter” whether the information feels credible to you.

3. When you need to make important decisions about people, you need to have your own experience of that individual.

It is not enough to listen to experts commenting on that person, you need to see and hear them yourself, or read what they have written in their own words.  Pay attention not just to the words, but to what is said underneath the words, through the body language and energy of the person.

4. Learn to pay attention to your body’s subtle physical and emotional signals, which often have information that your conscious mind may have learned to ignore.

This is useful in all situations, and especially in relation to listening to other people speak.  Your innate inner truth sense is always operating, even when you may have learned to not listen to it.  For example, you notice that whenever you hear a particular person speak, you find yourself feeling tense and getting a little spaced out, and you “tune out” their words.  Another person that you see appears seems likeable enough, but your “gut feelings” put up a red flag, and just don’t trust them.  Another person speaks and you find yourself feeling empowered and uplifted, and want to hear more of what they say.  These body signals can provide important information to you that is beyond what your conscious mind is aware of.

5. Become aware of your own emotional baggage that you carry, that may influence your choices.

For example, if you grew up with an abusive father and developed a problem with authority figures, become aware of the emotional dynamics that are operating in your life as a result of this.  How does your past affect the choices you make in your life today?  How do these influence your perceptions of people?  Do these choices empower you today?  You have the ability to see clearly, beyond your personal emotional pain of the past.

As each of us creates the intention to see clearly and to make choices based on our own inner sense of truth, we can expand the network of love, light and truth in the world and help to create a more positive future for all of humanity.

LIMITLESS MINDS: “3 Signs That You’ve Met Somebody From Your Past Life”

deja-vu-770x297-15

1.  You feel instant connection or repulsiveness.

When we think about people from our past lives, we often think of friends or relatives or even of people that we’d loved.  Often, when you run into somebody that you know from your past life, you feel immediate connection.  But what about a person that you didn’t like at all?  Sometimes, you might feel automatically repulsed by them.  No matter what, it’s a sign that you knew them before.

2.  Your connection is almost telepathic.

It doesn’t have to mean that you send each other mental messages.  It’s more like their ears ‘burn’ when we talk about them.  You might think of a person and just a second later receive an SMS by them, or you may feel of what next a person will say.  It’s a connection that is hard to explain and even harder to dismiss.

3.  You see it in their eyes. 

Have you ever looked somebody in their eyes and been hypnotized?  Have you felt like you already looked into those eyes a million times before?  If those eyes look familiar to you, then it may be because you have seen them, but in your past life.  If it ever happens to you, pay attention.  Some people believe that eyes don’t change when you pass from one life into another, allowing us to recognize our spiritual companions through time.

What do you think?  Have you met anybody from your past life?

LISSA RANKIN: “10 Signs You’ve Found Your Calling”

10 Signs You've Found Your Calling.png

How can you tell if you’ve found your calling?  As a doctor who was called to medicine at a young age but then wound up disillusioned by the system, questioning my calling, I’ve asked myself this question a lot.  It’s been a long strange trip — first leaving medicine, then feeling called back, then leaving again only to find my role in healing our broken health care system as a writer, speaker, revolutionary, and teacher of physicians.

Along the way, I’ve learned a few things about how to know whether you’re on the right track.

1. You’ll realize you’ve been training for your calling since the moment you were born.

Even the gritty things, the disappointments, the regrets, and the screw ups, they were all prepping you for what you’re now being called to do.  You’ll realize that the divorce, the bankruptcy, the death of your loved one, the failure, the rejection — it was just school, teaching you the lessons your soul needed to learn in order to be who you’re being called to be.

2. Mystical things will start happening.

You might be tempted to write them off as coincidences, only they’re too perfect, too exactly-what-you-need in that particular moment, too much like miracles to call them accidents.  The synchronicities will fill you with a sense of wonder, because they’re proof positive that you’re being guided, that you’re not in this alone, that Someone is moving mountains to ensure that your mission is a success.

3. When you get off course, you’ll get redirected.

Doors you longed to walk through will slam shut.  If you take the wrong fork in the road, your path will be littered with barbed wire and mustard gas and dragons and sharp knives lining the path.  You’ll get the hint that you’ve made a wrong turn, steering yourself off course from your date with destiny, when the journey becomes a relentless struggle.  The deal will fall through.  The money will run out.  The mentor who’s been providing the magical gifts won’t follow you onto the wrong path.  People won’t sign up.  You’ll be rerouted just as magically as you were steered to your calling in the first place.

4. You’ll be guided by ease, even in the face of obstacles.

When you find yourself struggling to get through an obstacle-ridden forest, it can be hard to tell: is your commitment just being tested, or have you veered off course?  Obstacles can be part of the growth process, the cultivation of your inner hero, a necessary part of your hero’s journey.  But they can also be signs that you’ve made a wrong turn.  How can you tell the difference?  The guidepost you can trust is a sense of movement towards ease.  If the challenges are mounting, things are getting worse, one hard struggle is piling upon the other, you’ve probably gotten seduced off-course from your true calling, and the Universe is just waiting patiently, twiddling Divine thumbs because you have free will, but never giving up faith that you’ll find your way back to your calling, which will always lead you to your own holy grail.  When you’re back on track, things start to flow again.

5. Magical mentors will appear just in the nick of time.

Just when you need it most, the right people will show up, with just the tools you’ll need to support you and your journey in an almost mystical way.

6. Your health is likely to improve.

A strange but welcome side effect of finding your calling is that your health is likely to improve.  You may notice fewer cravings for unhealthy foods, you’ll have more energy for moving your body, aches and pains that used to plague you might disappear, you’ll feel less tired, and chronic illnesses you may be battling may start to get better.

Take Andy Mackie, for example.  At 59 years old, Andy Mackie had undergone nine heart surgeries and was taking 15 medications to try to keep him alive, but the medicines left him feeling horrible, so one day, he told his doctors he wanted to stop the drugs.  They told him if he did, he’d die within a year, so Andy decided if he was dying, he wanted to do something he’d always wanted to do.

So he took the money he would’ve spent on his medications and used it to buy 300 harmonicas, and he gave them away to children, complete with harmonica lessons.  The following month, he was still alive, so he bought another 300 harmonicas.  Thirteen years and 20,000 harmonicas later, Andy Mackie finally passed away.

7. You may find that money flows in just as you’re ready to throw in the towel.

I’m not suggesting that you won’t wind up in debt or staring at an empty bank account when you used to have a full one or even bankrupt.  But if you’re on the right path, you won’t wind up living under that freeway overpass near what used to be your house, and you may find that money appears almost magically once you’re really right in the dead center of your life’s purpose.

8. You may feel strangely peaceful, even when you have every reason to be anxious.

Everyone around you will likely think you’re crazy.  A part of you will agree with them.  But a wise inner knowing, that part of you I call your Inner Pilot Light, will be so comforted by the fact that you’re finally on the path to your purpose that you may feel unusually calm — until your rational mind kicks in.

Our souls long to express what we’re here on this earth to express, and when you finally fall into alignment with your calling, your soul does a little happy dance.  It may appear as if everything else in your life is falling apart, but you’ll have this sense of peace, a huge relief, that at least—  finally — you know what you’re called to do.

9. The Universe will roll out the red carpet.

When what you’re being called to do is what is needed for the highest good of all beings, the Universe will bend over backwards to hand you whatever you need on a silver platter.  No request is too small.  A copywriter may volunteer to help you just when you were thinking you needed to write a sales page.  Someone will donate a printer when it’s time print a flyer.  You’ll feel so supported, so lucky, that you’ll know you’re on track, even if you’re not quite clear what you’re on track to do.

10. Your people will find you.

Few can fulfill a calling alone.  Most of us need a tribe to lift us up as we do brave, scary, world-changing things.  But don’t worry.  When you’re really on purpose, your people will find you, if only you’re courageous enough to be vulnerable about what you’re being called to do.

Do Any Of These Sound Familiar?

Have you found your calling?  Or are you still looking for it?  If you’ve found your calling, YEAH!  The world needs you!  Blessings to you on your hero’s journey.
