12 Symptoms of Spiritual Awakening

12 Signs of Spiritual Awakening

By Geoffrey Hoppe and Tobias | Maya 2012

1. Spiritual awakening often manifests as various body aches and pains, especially in the neck, shoulder and back. This is the result of intense changes at your DNA level as the “Christ seed” awakens within. This too shall pass.

2. Feeling of deep inner sadness for no apparent reason. You are releasing your past (this lifetime and others) and this causes the feeling of sadness. This is similar to the experience of moving from a house where you lived in for many years into a new house. As much as you want to move into the new house, there is a sadness of leaving behind the memories, energy and experiences of the old house. This will pass.

3. Crying for no apparent reason. Similar to #2 above. It’s good and healthy to let the tears flow. It helps to release the old energy within. This too shall pass.

4. Sudden change in job or career. A very common symptom. As you change, things around you will change as well. Don’t worry about finding the “perfect” job or career right now. This too shall pass. You’re in transition and you may make several job changes before you settle into one that fits your passion.


5. Withdrawal from family relationships. You are connected to your biological family via old karma. When you get off the karmic cycle, the bonds of the old relationships are released. It will appear as though you are drifting away from your family and friends. This will pass. After a period of time, you may develop a new relationship with them if it is appropriate. However, the relationship will be based in the new energy without the karmic attachments.

6. Unusual sleep patterns. It’s likely that you’ll awaken many nights between 2:00 and 4:00 AM. There’s a lot of work going on within you, and it often causes you to wake up for a “breather.” Not to worry. If you can’t go back to sleep, get up and do something rather than lay in bed and worry about humanly things. This will pass.

7. Intense dreams. These might include war and battle dreams, chase dreams or monster dreams. You are literally releasing the old energy within, and these energies of the past are often symbolized as wars, running to escape and boogiemen. This too shall pass.

8. Physical disorientation. At times you’ll feel very ungrounded. You’ll be “spatially challenged” with the feeling like you can’t put two feet on the ground, or that you’re walking between two worlds. As your consciousness transitions into the new energy, you body sometimes lags behind. Spend more time in nature to help ground the new energy within. This will pass.

9. Increased “self talk.” You’ll find yourself talking to your Self more often. You’ll suddenly realize you’ve been chattering away with yourself for the past 30 minutes. There is a new level of communication taking place within your being, and you’re experiencing the tip of the iceberg with the self talk. The conversations will increase, and they will become more fluid, more coherent and more insightful. You’re not going crazy, you’re just Lightworkers, moving into the new energy.

10. Feelings of loneliness, even when in the company of others. You may feel alone and removed from others. You may feel the desire to “flee” groups and crowds. As Lightworkers, you are walking a sacred and lonely path. As much as the feelings of loneliness cause you anxiety, it is difficult to relate to others at this time. The feelings of loneliness are also associated with the fact that your Guides have departed. They have been with you on all of your journeys in all of your lifetimes. It was time for them to back away so you could fill your space with your own divinity. This too shall pass. The void within will be filled with the love and energy of your own Christ consciousness.

11. Loss of passion. You may feel totally dis-impassioned, with little or no desire to do anything. That’s OK, and it’s just part of the process. Take this time to “do no-thing.” Don’t fight yourself on this, because this too shall pass. It’s similar to rebooting a computer. You need to shut down for a brief period of time in order to load the sophisticated new software, or in this case, the new Christ-seed energy.

12. A deep longing to go Home. This is perhaps the most challenging of the conditions. You may experience a deep and over-whelming desire to leave the planet and return to Home. This is not a “suicidal” feeling. It is not based in anger or frustration. You don’t want to make a big deal of it or cause drama for yourself or other. There is a quiet part of you that wants to go Home. The root cause for this is quite simple. You have completed your karmic cycles. You have completed your contract for this lifetime. You are ready to begin a new lifetime while still in this physical body. During this transition process, you have an inner remembrance of what it is like to be on the other side. Are you ready to enlist for another tour of duty here on Earth? Are you ready to take on the challenges of moving into the New Energy? Yes, indeed you could go Home right now. But you’ve come this far, and after many, many lifetimes it would be a shame to leave before the end of the movie. Besides, Spirit needs you here to help others transition into the new energy. They will need a human guide, just like you, who has taken the journey from the old energy into the new. The path you’re walking right now provides the experiences to enable you to become a Teacher of the New Divine Human. As lonely and dark as your journey can be at times, remember that you are never alone.

  2. oh my goodness I did not know someone was feeling the same way….I am not sure what made me type spiritual awakening in search engine other than i was looking for some relief on how i was feeling ….thanks for sharing I found some answers.

  3. DNA mutating, I’m a blood donor, are the mutations that have taken place visable to the people checking my blood before they use it to save lives. And is it possible that blood from donors who have under gone or are under going that mutation might help fuel the ascension process for those people who receive that blood. I’ve had the pain consistant with DNA mutations (at least everything I’ve read says it’s consistant) so I’m also wondering how I’ll know when the mutations are complete within myself.

  4. sent me how to meditation

  5. Most of these are signs of clinical depression. I am curious as to what facts/findings you are basing these 12 signs on.

    • @patricia

      I’m guessing the person who compiled this based it on reports from people who’d been on a spiritual path for a long time and what happened to them during a big awakening. Also probably on what advanced spiritual teachers like yogis, Zen masters, and Buddhist monks said often happens.

      It’s true, many things in life look similar on the outside to a lot of other things. Discernment and wisdom are needed to go beyond the outer appearance and tell which is which.

      Not to mention that “Clinical Depression,” (not unlike “ADHD”) is a subjective label (one that’s especially popular in America today especially with the pharmaceutical industry), not some kind of universal truth. And except in the most extreme cases, is open to wide interpretation depending on time in history, culture, nationality, personality type, age, personal opinion, circumstances, etc, etc.

  6. I have all these signs and I’m not depressed @ patricia. This is true. If you’re questioning these symptoms then I doubt you’re experiencing spiritual awakening. However there’s more too add to the crying one, there’s also crying tears of joy simply because pure spiritual thoughts come to your mind and make you happy as if you would’ve never thought of experiencing such happiness.

  7. my experience is the same, in addition, my eyes become more clearer, my hearing became stronger, i only sleep for 5 to six hours, i dont get tired, i gained weight, some sort of look like younger, i feel energized as if if can ran kilometers wont get tired, i feel alone but i feel that i have alot of things to do, tomorrow i willl find job, i can feel that i am like a magnet that energy is entering my body, it really disturbs me

    • Thanks so much for posting this information. As I check them off -body aches, lucid dreams, resigned from my job ( that was scary but it felt like death if I stayed) depression (gone) spirit waking me up at 2 a.m., keep the tissue handy -tears of joy flow. The constant stream of self talk – I’m having some great conversations with myself. I attempt to write them down but don’t always have pen and paper available. Crowded rooms – the energy zaps me… the longing to go home – “I’m not supposed to be here,” is something I say to myself in frustration of being on the planet when things get too heavy. Sat Nam :)

  8. Amazes me how many others are experiencing the same things…..somehow, it seems easier when we discover others going through the same…..allows us not to think we’re going crazy….:-)

    So appreciate this article, it’s being printed out where I can refer to it often…..

  9. I exactly have these feelings especially after the visit of holy spirit. I feel I’m like a prisoner in this world waiting for Jesus Christ to come release me.

    • I read your comments about your spiritual awakening. I too am experiencing the same “symptoms”. I believe that Jesus Christ is coming soon, and it have all to do with “our gathering together unto the Lord”, or Rapture…. many blessings

  10. Yes this started for me at 29 yrs old and really is completed now around my 30th…. Quit job, put boundaries and stopped talking to family since our communication was always so painful to me, wanting to move and find new friends. I want to help people.

    Is life better once the cycle is complete?

    I believe there are no coincidences and you are receiving this message for a reason. Have a blessed day!

  12. Great Article! It feels good to be on a spiritual path. I always cry and now a days I don’t even question it, I can tell it will come and go. I think all of these symptoms make a lot of sense. I hope that my time on earth in this life time will be worth while :) I am doing my best, but the world is certainly not the easiest place to live in!

  13. From past few days i am also getting the system as above , my dreams are wierd
    and its like i am always trying to escape , love for god , lonely , crying but dont knew wat to do can yu please guide me wat to do my routine has also change

  14. All of these signs are very true.
    I cried out for humanity 3days straight and then I began to pray often. God began to send me signs and now I’m feeling better. Its really a spiritual awakening.

  15. actually just had to cleanse myself and home with white sage as I was having these same “symptoms” although I may be an awakening lightworker/medium, I do feel I was in the midst of a good Ol’ possession… so which is it? Good spirit or bad spirit?

    • To Kellie,

      Good spirit or bad? Both.

      It’s like when you turn on a light in a room full of cockroaches – you see them hurry, scurry everywhere. And yet before you turned the light on, you didn’t know they were there. Shining the light illuminates the dark places. It drives issues to the surface and puts them in your face. It’s kinda like all those 12-step programs saying “The first step is admitting you have a problem.” You can’t work on your issues, face your fears, acknowledge your disempowering programming if you don’t know you have those things. The light points out what you have to work on.

      But yes, the steps you’ve taken are very good. Healing / clearing / releasing. And the acts / rituals you are going through (cleansing / saging your home) help you set your intentions to release the old ways. Just don’t get hung up on the methods. Use them while you need to, but don’t adopt them as a life-long crutch. Saging and crystals and healing techniques, etc. are training wheels and amplifiers. But it’s ultimately ALL ABOUT YOU. Ah, your chance to truly make it “all about you” and have that be a good thing. It’s you who works this magic, these miracles of healing. But these other things can serve as an aid to help you early in your training… or perhaps later also, when the process has so knocked you out that just setting simply setting intent, something you have gotten very good at, suddenly just doesn’t seem possible when you’re too exhausted to focus worth a hill of beans, so falling back on these tools can be useful.

      An example in my case has been in receiving information from the Divine. Years ago, I got really good at “knowing”, “hearing” and “sensing” (claircognizance, clairaudience, clairsentience) but later on when doing the most intense part of my ASCENSION work, which is what all this healing is leading to, and also when assisting the Earth and the collective to transmute old energies, then it was tough for me to “hear” so I had to fall back on using a dowsing rod and Tarot readings. Whatever it took to keep getting Divine guidance.

      I have found some people have a tough time acknowledging what they need to heal. Some also stuff old emotions belonging to events long past. These folks keep things stuffed down.

      Other people can acknowledge things or allow themselves to feel very intensely so they are allowing this stuff to the surface and yet don’t then release those things.

      The first type never faces the cr*p, while the other just turns what could be a good vent into a re-fueling. In both cases, the old doesn’t get released.

  16. I ‘m like you having a lot of them.
    one part of me prod cause like you a cut a lot of family and friend , but sometimes I’m med at myself by not doing right !
    I’m not working almost a year , and I don’t feel like going back to does places when I used to work
    for to be honest they don’t treated me right , pay minimum wag and ask for more , more I have been abuse and always demand to work more which I did to make them happy with me , most of the the time I felt like in jail

  17. I’d have to disagree respectfully.

    I broke down, went through 2 weeks of extreme pain, and then … saw the most beautiful world, the most beautiful reflection, the most beautiful world.

    The world was suddenly so radiant and sensational. And it’s been like that since. Everything is exciting, simple, and easy.

    If the pain does come, but if it is not going away, that is not spirit awakening. Spirit is joyful, youthful, and bright. It is passionate and free. It is intense and connected. It is full of beauty and love.

    Sometimes, we must allow for a healing period, but this definitely is not the norm post-awakening.

    • Vironika,

      Aches and pains are due to old blockages getting “fried” out. Continued aches and pains come from resistance to healing. Everyone will feel at least a bit of these aches and pains and intense emotions, etc. You’ll feel even more of it or continue feeling it for extended periods of time if you resist the process.

      And on the flip side, yep, if you flow along with it, it won’t be too bad.

      In my own experience, which meant not only healing myself but also assisting the planet and the collective energetically, I found that when I went through my own intense ASCENSION process, yep, it came with aches, pains, discomfort, weird sleeping and eating patterns (or lack of pattern / routine), intense emotions, etc. But once I’d cleared all my blockages, most pain and discomfort stuff was gone forever.

      But folks like myself who were on this early and led this charge, did more than just our own work. We were literally used as “human antennae” to clear the Earth and assist the collective energetically. So, then what I’d feel was exhaustion. Pretty much any and every time I was used by the Divine for such, I was pooped. And when I was given a break from it, the difference was like night and day.

      Now, most of my body issues are from having a physical vessel which hasn’t been used much physically and instead was used for energetic purposes. Well, I’m fat, out of shape, and have severely atrophied muscles due to my service work. Things don’t quite work right, but for that reason. Our bodies were meant to be used outwardly and yet the Divine had other ideas for what I was to do here. And I was a life-long athlete and eat whole, organic food, so it’s a little tough to know that the Divine didn’t care about my physical body as much as I myself did over the years. But that’s ok, I’ll be rewarded with ASCENSION very soon and won’t need this worn-out body any longer and will have my light body and new crystalline body to use. No regrets and knew I wouldn’t, but it’s been a very long haul for those of us who have been doing this very intense work in service to others and the planet.

      Also, at times when energetic work was intense, I found that physical “weak spots” were “rattled” if you will. For instance, I have a bad tooth. Well, it might be ok normally and yet when the energies were really intense, which absolutely jolts your nervous system, then my tooth would ache. Yep, felt like it was a piece of equipment getting “stress tested” or “vibration tested” and the weak spot really got rattled.

      And when you do really intense transmutation work like what we leaders did, you transmute through your own personal field. For instance, if there were potential “destructive forces” at work in the world, we might transmute that through emotions. It was not OUR energy but the world’s energy that we were transmuting. It might mean a day or two of the most intense rage a person could ever feel. But we processed emotionally what otherwise could have manifested outwardly into the world and caused much havoc.

      And you get really good at this type of thing after you’ve healed yourself and cleared all your blockages. I’d like to comment on emotions at this point – being spiritually advanced does not mean you don’t feel emotions or don’t feel some emotions. Emotions, ALL emotions just are. They are neither good nor bad. When people go wrong with emotions is when they repress them. Emotions are energy and energy is meant to flow. Repression means stopping the flow. If you’ve bottled up old emotions, it’s gonna cause you problems. It will burn you up from the inside out. Even love when not expressed will burn you up. This causes “dis-ease” or lack of ease.

      When you’ve processed all your back-log of old emotions and you’re “up to date”, if you will, you will still feel. You’ll perhaps feel even more intensely than you ever have because the emotions will be right in synch with the events that the emotions belong to. So, it will hit with great intensity, flow right through, then be done with. Then you move onto the next “moment” (a moment is defined as whatever time it takes to have an experience) and express the emotions that go with the experience of that moment.

      For anyone who might read this, who is not yet prepared for ASCENSION, and hence won’t be ascending WITH Gaia, you may find yourselves taking over some duties from the likes of me, doing some transmutation work that is not about you, but is about the world or collective.

      As someone else here commented about the difference between spiritual awakening / ascension symptoms and clinical depression, you need to discern the difference. So, you’ll need to discern what is “yours” and what is “energetic service work”. If it’s your own, you can change things in the long run by making different choices. If it’s service work, you just transmute it. In both cases, it takes however long it takes. You can’t rush it, or force it and also you really don’t want to put it off. Just let it flow through you in its time.

  18. I have found myself feeling a few of these symptoms particularly deep sadness and crying for no reason – I am at ease knowing others are going through this too and I was not experiencing a strange phenomenon on my own.

  19. Undisclosed not a easy way saw !!

  20. I would rather disagree most humbly and say it is definitely not a spiritual awakening. for most of us life comes to a standstill before we realize what’s happening around us!!this is the stage when you feel you are lost & lonely and want to get away from the entire scene.In the process you cry, talk to yourself,etc.,It is the transition point of your life where you have to use your wisdom and carefully plan a change for the better and let go of the past as though you are reborn as life is a beautiful gift to us all from our spiritual Father.

    • OK, so you disagree that it is a spiritual awakening and go on to cite all the evidence that builds the argument for what one is going through when going on a path of enlightenment into a spiritual awakening instead of proposing what might actually be happening from your point of view… right. So basically what you are saying is you agree, you just wanted to be the one to say it. Another ‘FIRST’er? Everybody just wants to be heard though, I suppose.

  21. If you wish for to take a great deal from this post then you have to
    apply such strategies to your won blog.

  22. the thing that is most prominent with me is number 8 the physical disorientation, i feel like im in a hazy dream all the time, most places i’ve researched its label as ‘derealization’ anyone have any tips on dealing with this, and helping pass like this site says it will?

  23. I am so happy to have come across this post. It does sound like clinical depression, which I have been struggling with for years. I know how depression feels, but what I had been feeling was so different. I only knew one definition for the symptoms( depression) and so I defaulted to doing the work as prescribed even though I felt like I reach a place to began other work. Seeing this tells me I am not depressed, my gut was right, I am just on my next journey.

  24. I have been struggling with this since 2009. I am lost and alone. I have run out of optimism and feel like i have been abandoned.

    • Alone Again… you are not… alone that is. Please see my other comments on this article to other commenters.

      I did about 15 years of healing work. It was on-again, off-again. I also learned a lot and also helped others with their healing.

      Then, yep, towards the end of 2009, the really intense ASCENSION work started. My own intense work happened over several months during 2010. It was very much like the healing and upgrade cycles I’d experiences over years prior but came in rapid succession with little to no breaks.

      Then when I was cleared, then the intense work for the planet and collective came. And that’s been the same broken-record cycle now for 3+ years.

      One comment – “struggle” is a choice. And this from someone who’s been through “service to others sheer hell”. You might have been right there with me. If you are done with your own healing and have prepared yourself for ascension, your troubles will soon be over. If you’re not ready yet, you can be any time you do the inner work.

      My intuitive feel? You’re ready. You go inward and see if you can get confirmation on that.

      I know there has been much behind-the-scenes activity and many, many delays and issues and change of plans to do with the ASCENSION, so yep, it’s been frustrating and disheartening at times not to mention just knock-down, drag-out exhausting. If you are truly ready dear, it’s almost over.

      Close your eyes. Relax. See if you can tap into the feel of 5th Dimensional Earth. That’s “HOME” for all intents and purposes for now. You may very soon be out from under the veil, out of the duality illusion.
