Psychic Symptoms & Signs of a Spiritual Awakening
The psychic effects of a spiritual awakening are as varied as the people who experience them. However, there are certain spiritual repercussions that are fairly common. Here's a list of what to look for:
Experiencing a stronger connection to people as well as other life forms. Perhaps you're more able to read and understand living things in a better way than you did previously. Animals may sense this newfound connection as well. Communication with other living things feels easier and more natural. If animals seem to be responding better to you, try nutruring plants as well. See if you're able to reach out and make new connections. We are all inhabitants of the world! During a spiritual awakening, you may feel this connection more profoundly with people, plants, and animals alike, a new awareness of sense of community and of everything working together from their own places in the universe. Practice love and compassion in everything that you do.
Disturbances during meditation, prayer, or quiet times. As you contact your guides, pray to God, or meditate, you may have issues focusing your thoughts or energy. As you experience more signs and symptoms of a spiritual awakening, you may find that you need less time to meditate or pray to your higher power, as your ability to communicate those thoughts and feelings simply require less time. Perhaps you simply don't need to allot as much time as before, or you may be communicating and/or centering yourself unconsciously in small ways throughout your waking (or sleeping) day.
A keener sense of awareness of others' presences. This manifests through an understanding or consciousness of not only the presence of living and natural beings on this plane -- pets, friends, and random folks -- but also through consciousness of supernatural beings. It may be a stretch, but some who undergo a spiritual transformation may just be becoming aware of spirits or even spectral presences. There are some folks who are born with this ability, and others who develop it over time. A spiritual awakening can bring many latent talents to the surface, including hidden abilities or weaker ones which suddenly become stronger. If this is a frightening phenomenon for you, try meditation, prayer, or even calling upon friendly angels and spirit guides to protect you. Remember -- most angelic or spiritual presences are either intent on trying to help you, or they are neutral in purpose. Very, very few of these presences are harmful or mean, however some fear or paranoia is natural.
An increase in psychic or extrasensory abilities. It is not unusual when someone experiences a spiritual awakening, for the sixth sense to become keener and stronger. You will notice a heightened sense of awareness. Perhaps you will experience clairvoyant, psychic, or empathic abilities that have been latent up to this point in your life, beginning to come forth and give you a new sense of perspective.
The discovery of a spirituality or philosophy that works for you. Perhaps, for the first time in your life, you have found a type of spiritual or philosophical constructs that seem to correspond with just how you're thinking or feeling. You may possess a deep hunger to learn more about a specific type of religion or belief. This can help you to put your other issues into perspective, to aid you in growing on your spiritual journey. The best way to go along with this is to read all you can, talk to other people, and ask questions if you're feeling lost. Remember that exploration leads to discovery!
More communication with your higher power. A stronger desire to meditate, to pray, or simply to commune with nature will always manifest itself in a spiritual awakening. Perhaps you have found a new desire to speak to your guardian angels or spirit guides, and a greater inspiration to try making that connection.
