I witnessed a massive spiritual awakening in the collective in 2020. Over that year, I met dozens of people and had countless hours of conversations about what was happening. No matter who I talked to, several common themes surfaced. They were questioning everything, feeling out of control or sometimes strangely in control, and looking for answers.
What is happening to me? Why is this happening? What does it mean?
To sum it up, a spiritual awakening feels like a nervous breakdown. Regardless of how you label the experience, it’s likely you’re reading this because you’re looking for answers too. Naturally, there are as many answers as there are people who are asking the questions. If you’re interested in working with me to find your answers, click here.
Here are five signs that you are going through a nervous breakdown spiritual awakening in no particular order.
1. You are experiencing a monumental life change.
Marriage. Divorce. Becoming a parent. Moving. Retirement. Experiencing loss or trauma. Losing your job. All of these events qualify as a monumental life change. Regardless of how much you may have planned for or expected it, there is no way to dress rehearse the feelings you have when the time comes. Life as you know it no longer exists, and that takes time to integrate. There’s no going back to normal.
2. You feel different.
You don’t want to hang out with the same people anymore. The places you enjoyed going or ways you spent your time feel empty now. The things that once brought you joy feel meaningless. On the upside, there are new faces in your life. You enjoy learning about new things. You are no longer willing to put up with abuse, neglect, or fake friends. You’re discovering what matters to you – your values – and living into them.
3. You are wondering what your purpose is in life.
With this newfound sense of self, you are wondering about the purpose of your life. Surely you’re not supposed to hustle every day for money until you die. You’re asking yourself profound questions like, “why am I doing this? What is the point of it all?” You yearn for a true sense of joy and belonging. You’re not exactly sure what it is that you want; you just know it’s not this.
I ask you – what would you do if you were paid in happiness?
4. You see the same numbers (11:11, 222, 333) everywhere you go.
This is one of my favorites because no matter how objective or logical you are, you cannot ignore that you see the same numbers repeatedly. It’s easy to feel like you imagine things at the beginning of an Awakening, or perhaps you’ve been gaslighted so much in the past you doubt yourself. There’s no denying that it’s happening or thinking you’re crazy when you keep seeing those damn numbers. There’s no subjectivity; the numbers are right there.
5. You’re starting to see/sense/feel things.
This one is less objective and makes us think we’re crazy. You see flashes or sparkles in your peripheral vision. Perhaps you see what looks like a person in the corner of your eye, but when you glance over, no one is there. You get the feeling that you’re not alone in a house you’ve lived in forever. Suddenly going into crowded places brings on anxiety, and it never used to be a problem. Short version: you’re becoming more sensitive to energy fields and the energy of others.
Does this sound like what you’re going through? Then, congratulations, you’re going through a Spiritual Awakening! No, you’re not crazy. Yes, it’s going to be OK.
