Spiritual Awakening Signs & Symptoms

spiritual awakening signs

Spiritual awakening is a process of awakening to your true nature and the interconnectedness of all things. It’s a journey of self-discovery and personal growth that can be transformative but also challenging. Sometimes, it’s difficult to know if you’re going through a spiritual awakening or just experiencing the ups and downs of everyday life.

Some event in your life triggers a spiritual awakening. Such as the passing of a loved one. Participating in spiritual development events/workshops and visiting sacred places. It could be anything. Each spiritual awakening experience is entirely different, unique, and specific to the individual. 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.

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 complex sacred geometry and ancient symbols. One of the symbols I saw was a spiral, the oldest symbol known to be used in spiritual practices, reflecting 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 tingling around my body. I noticed strong smells when no one else was in the room. I can see light, images, patterns, and people in my mind’s eye. Read the post: 5 simple ways to develop your intuition.

3. Physical body changes

Within 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 between 2.00 am – 4.00 am. In the bedroom, I can hear whispers or sounds and perceive smells and scents when no one is there. I can sometimes smell perfume, flowers, or food; these scents 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, and I would receive knowledge, information, and advice.

9. Messages from higher beings

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

10. Changes in appetite and eating habits

I suddenly desired to eliminate and reduce my intake of certain foods and drinks that my body no longer needed to consume.

11. Can’t be around anything extremely negative

I am very sensitive; anything negative affects my energy. I have stopped watching the news, reading newspapers, and limiting my time around negative people.

12. Desire to discover your soul’s purpose

I discovered 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 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 body does not have enough capacity to contain the energy being received, so it must be released.

15. Want to learn more about spirituality and metaphysics

I yearn to discover who I am and 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, I strongly desire to go home and reconnect with my spiritual self.

  1. I’ve been noticing these appear over the past year. It took a break for a few months but last night I saw geometric patterns when I closed my eyes to go to sleep. I’ve had severe reactions to pharmaceuticals, had weight loss from 140 to 115 ( I’ve stabilized at 125). My eating habits changed dramatically. I constantly see 11:11. We are currently going through a shift so I’m attributing it to that.

  2. I started to feel a deep yearning for”home”, and didn’t understand so I fell into despair. I cut myself off from friends and family. I struggled to stay productive on my job. I’ve always marveled on the world of metaphysics so I started watching YouTube tarot readings. I fell down the rabbit hole and finally began my awakening. I don’t eat as much and started holistic medicine treatments. I can’t stand to be around negativity too long, bright lights and loud sounds really bother me. I smell things that aren’t there. I drink much more water. Alone time is crucial. I’m very empathic. I hear a pulse and high pitched sounds in my right ear ONLY. I get a tingling/ pulling sensation between my eyes when I meditate.

  3. Do you think the symbols are our spirit trying to communicate with us in the most basic of human ‘languages’ (since our language is actually just a technological invention). I have had these experiences too. Maybe every few months – tough to say – but not super often. I wake up usually in the middle of the night, startled awake almost. I open my eyes and see right in front of them these animated glyphs ‘play out’ right in front of me. Once it was a Mayan/Native American prayer wheel, another time hieroglyphics. Sometimes it’s just a weird shape and other times a tableau of many shapes. It is intriguing and a mystery but also frustrating to me that I don’t know what it is or means or whether I’m supposed to engage with it. Maybe I am engaging with it in sleep but don’t realize it? I wish someone would write about this in detail. All I see are scientific journals talking about hypnagogia as if that explains it.

  4. Hi

    I believe spirit communicates with us in repetition using symbols, people, numbers, songs, sound and objects to send a message we will take notice off.

    1. I’ve been having this as well, right before my open eyes. Dancing bright white geometric shapes that move and change. I don’t believe it’s hypnagogia since I lay in bed for about 20 minutes watching them wide awake.

  5. All of these things are happening to me right now. I dont know what the end result will be. I’m pushing foward and trying to trust. Thank you for writing this.

  6. Wow, I needed this. 🙂 it’s good to have an validation to all I’m going through. I saw the sacred geometry again last night, more beautiful than ever, I always see it with rainbow colors and there was something that kept telling me that we are all made of sacred geometry. In the morning I’m feeling a huge energy shift, it feels lighter.
    I’ve been going in and out of deep depression and anxiety. It’s been so hard but I’m glad at least to know it’s all part of the process.
    Thank you!

  7. all these and more happening to me and its been a rollercoaster.BUT trusting in spirit and meditating daily and keeping in touch with my angels. It’s all good. Thank you for giving us these insights.
