If you're like me, you may have experienced some signs of a spiritual awakening?
Sometimes without even knowing what was going on.
By the end of this post, you'll know the 25 subtle yet undeniable (and sometimes strange) signs you're having a spiritual awakening.
But before we dive into the signs you may want to know…
What Is A Spiritual Awakening?
In a nutshell, it’s waking up to the fact that there is more to life than the physical.
It’s knowing you’re so much more than flesh, blood, and all things physical.
It’s knowing that everything is, because of Spirit, or Consciousness.
It’s realizing how you create your own reality, not just by physical action, but by working with your thoughts, emotions, and your life force, or spirit.
I’m willing to bet you’re here seeking guidance about the things you’ve been going through.
You want to know…
Are the changes I've been experiencing signs of a spiritual awakening, or am I just going crazy?
Well, you’re reading the right article, amigo. Let’s find out!
What Are The Signs Of A Spiritual Awakening?
Sign #1: You Experience Increased Synchronicity
What is synchronicity? According to Carl Jung, synchronicity is the experience of two or more events which connect in a meaningful way – but don’t have any “cause” in common.
In other words, you can’t quite say a situation or person is the one cause of these “coincidences.”
When you start the spiritual awakening process, a lot of synchronistic events take place.
You may see certain numbers, all the time, everywhere. You wake up or look at the clock and see the same repeating numbers such as 11:11, 22:22, 13:13 or whatever.
You find that you were only just thinking of an old buddy you hadn’t talked to in ten years, and suddenly they add you on Facebook.
You’re going through a rough time, and need some sort of encouragement.
Suddenly you see the Liverpool logo and notice the caption written on it: “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
Synchronicity is always there. Life is synchronicity, be it positive or negative.
However, when you begin to wake up, you notice it more.
You notice the synchronicity so much that it’s ridiculous how no one else can see it!
Sign #2: You Start To Have Really Lucid Dreams
Wondering what a lucid dream is? It’s a dream in which you become aware that you’re dreaming.
No doubt this has happened to many.
Usually, though, they wind up waking right up. In an actually, lucid dream, you take control of your dream world.
I kept having lucid dream after lucid dream. In some of these, I would receive guidance.
Some of them, I would see certain things to watch out for in my life.
If you find yourself constantly waking up within your dreams, and then controlling them, then that’s definitely a sign you’re having a spiritual awakening!
Sign #3: A Desire To Meditate
Why does this happen? When you’re in a meditative state, you’re even more aware than ever of your connection to the larger part of you.
You’re aware of your connection to Source.
And the longer you sit in meditation, the more you’re aware that you’re not just connected to Source…
You. Are. Source!
A spiritual awakening is nurtured by taking time to meditate, as often as possible. You’re aware of this, on a much deeper level.
You understand meditation is a way to help you be mindful about what really matters.
Meditation helps center you, so you’re not washed away by the non-important stuff, like materialism and Kylie Jenner’s new implants.
Sign #4: Time Matters Less To You
Sure, you’ll look at a calendar, or a clock – but only because someone scheduled a meeting with you by a certain time on a certain day.
Or perhaps you’re supposed to give your neighbor’s cat some food in the evening.
On a whole though, when you’re having a spiritual awakening, time ceases to matter.
As you awaken spiritually, you realize that in the grand scheme of things, time is a made-up concept.
We might as well decide there are 11 days in a week, and that 8 of those days are “the weekend.” Great idea right?
I know. Make me your president!
Time and space only matter as far as our physical lives on Earth are concerned.
When you wake up, you realize these don’t matter.
There is only Here, and there is only Now.
Sign #5: You Experience Higher Vibrational Sensations
A sign you might be having a spiritual awakening is the feeling of energy or high vibrations in your body.
For example, when you’re meditating, they tend to come on. Sometimes really strong. Other times, they can occur randomly.
It’s like a surge of energy going through you.
If you’ve had this happen before, you know what I mean. It feels like electricity running through you, but in a really good way.
Occasionally, especially when meditating, you’ll also have the sensation of being a lot larger or more expanded than you physically are.
Don’t panic. This happens regularly, in the awakening process.

Sign #6: You Feel A Need To Withdraw From The World
When you’re having a spiritual awakening, it’s a journey you must go through alone.
You’ll find it’s not something you can fully experience when you have a lot of distractions in your life.
Do you find yourself not posting on social media as much as you used to?
Not checking to see what’s new, like you used to?
Do you find you’d much rather be by yourself at home, or in nature than hanging out at the club like you used to?
Don’t worry. It doesn’t mean you’re becoming a recluse.
It just means you need to be in your own personal space, to allow the process to bloom.
Don’t be alarmed, when you begin to notice people dropping out of your life. It won’t be because you keep declining party invites.
It’s just as you awaken spiritually, your vibration raises.
Anyone and anything that isn’t a match to your new vibe, is going to go, whether you want them to or not.
Sign #7: Sensing Presences With You
When I say sensing presences, I mean loving, warm ones. You get the sense that you’re not alone, even if it seems that way.
What do I mean by “sensing?” You might feel them. You might hear them (clairaudience).
When you wake up spiritually, you become more aware of the love and guidance that is yours, all the time.
Your guides will reveal themselves to you in ways you’re most comfortable with. Sometimes you might hear your name being lovingly called as you wake up or fall asleep.
Sign #8: You’re More Sensitive To Other People’s Energies
With a spiritual awakening, comes a heightening of your subtler senses. You could meet someone, and they’re the nicest, chattiest, smiliest person in the whole room.
But! For reasons you can’t quite put your finger on, you just know not to trust them.
You can detect the bad vibes.
Likewise, you’re also hyper-aware of how others feel. You’re more in tune with them.
You get them, on a level beyond the words they say or don’t say.
You want to be careful, so you’re not overwhelmed by other people’s energies.
Believe me when I say it can be fairly draining. A steady meditation practice, and constantly grounding yourself will help you here.

Sign #9: Your Intuition Is Dialed To The Max
You’re more in touch with your gut, and you find each time you follow it, it serves you.
When you ignore what your “spidey senses” tell you, you find yourself in hot water every time, no exceptions.
Now that you’re spiritually awake, you’ll find yourself just knowing things. Your intuition is loud, clear, and unmistakable when you’re waking up spiritually.
It will never steer you wrong. Trust it!
Sign #10: Creativity Streams Out Of You
In the past, you’d maybe have “bursts” of creativity. Now, after your spiritual awakening, you find yourself brimming with incredible ideas for that screenplay you wanted to write.
You suddenly have an idea that would be a game changer.
As challenges present themselves to you at home, or at work, you come up with the most amazing solutions.
You’re on a roll! This is a huge effect of spiritual awakening.
In the end, what Spirit loves to do, is express itself.
As you are now spiritually awake, you’re the perfect channel for all that creativity to flow through!

Sign #11: You Think Of Death As An Adventure, Not Something To Fear
This sign you're having a spiritual awakening may sound morbid to those who haven’t woken up yet.
Since waking up spiritually also means you’re aware that life never ends, you’re no longer scared of dying.
You look at death with excitement. No, you’re not suicidal. You just are curious about what lies beyond this life.
You understand that death is just stepping out of one room and into another.
What you really are is Consciousness.
Since you’re aware of this, you know the end of your body isn’t the end of you.
Sign #12: You Serve As A Channel For Other Beings
When you’re spiritually awake, it becomes easier for you to connect with other intelligence.
Everyone actually is able to channel. It’s not necessarily about giving messages from other beings like Jane Roberts did with Seth (this book is worth reading).
Have you ever sat down to finish writing a book, or finish a drawing, or create some music, and then when you’re done you realize so much time has gone by?
Then you also realize, this work is so beautiful, it feels almost like you didn’t do it.
It felt like it just poured out of you.
Guess what? That’s channeling too!
So don’t freak out if you’re starting to get messages. You’ll only ever get messages you’re in tune with, so be sure to keep your vibe high and positive!
Sign #13: You’re Full Of Indescribable, Unreasonable Joy And Peace
You walk around with a smile on your face, and a lot of pep in your step.
When people get curious and ask you what’s got you so happy, you have no answer! No reason! You’re just full of joy.
This is because as our true selves, we are Joy, Love, and Light. Waking up spiritually reminds you of this.
So it doesn’t have to be payday for you to be happy. You don’t need a glass of wine to laugh like no one’s watching. You just are being your natural, spiritually awakened self!
Sign #14: You Crave Deep Understanding
Before you go through a spiritual awakening, you may feel comfortable living your life without truly understanding the universe. However, when you go through a spiritual awakening, you will crave information and learning.
You will want to read more literature about philosophy and spirituality and enjoy deep chats with people about the meaning of life.
Superficial things that once filled you with joy might feel a bit stale, and you will wish to spend your time learning about spirituality and how you can grow and proceed on your true path in life.
Sign #15: Your Third Eye Begins to Open
The third eye connects us to the spiritual realm and is seen as a very important part of a spiritual awakening.
Everyone has a third eye, but loads of people will go through life without opening it and using it to gain spiritual knowledge and understanding.
When our third eyes open, we become more in tune with the universe and its powers. It also allows us to develop psychic abilities and enhances our intuition. It is an incredible experience, and it will truly change your life.
When we are going through a spiritual awakening, our third eye might open up. When this happens, we might feel pressure between the eyebrows and a need to touch the forehead.
It is important to work with your third eye in order to move forward on your spiritual path and work with the universe to achieve true inner peace and happiness.
Sign #16: You Feel Less At Home In Modern Society
A spiritual awakening allows us to connect with the universe on a much deeper level. It allows us to become at One with nature and the world, and this means that we may feel less at home in modern society.
When you wake up spiritually, the things that used to matter do not seem to matter much anymore. You are less connected to modern society, such as media and work, and things like success and money won’t be as important to you as they once were.
Sign #17: You Question Societal Norms and Traditions
When we go through a spiritual awakening, we will typically notice and question the things that we are taught by society.
Most of us are brought up in a society that puts great importance on wealth, status, beauty, and success.
However, when you go through a spiritual awakening, you begin to question the things that you have been taught. You start to realize that were are being told lies by modern society and that we need to entangle ourselves from certain norms and traditions.
Sign #18: You Want To Surround Yourself With Nature
Because of your new understanding of society when you go through a spiritual awakening, you will typically have a deep wish to surround yourself with nature.
You will typically find yourself being drawn to nature and the elements, with a deep wish to get lost in a forest or go swimming in a lake.
Because of your spiritual awakening, you crave a deeper connection with mother earth. You will begin to understand the importance of nature to your life and your wellbeing.
Sign #19: You Understand Your Bad Habits
Being spiritually aware is a process, and it is a journey towards true happiness. Because of this, it will often make you more aware of what is holding you back in life.
We all have bad habits and negative behavior. These things are there to challenge us, and it can be really difficult to leave them in the past.
However, during your spiritual awakening, the universe will be on your side and help you understand and change your bad habits. You will learn from them, and they will allow you to create the best person of yourself.
Sign #20: You May Discover Psychic Abilities
When we are spiritually awake, we are much more in tune with our intuition and spiritual side. This means that we may discover psychic abilities that we have but never used before.
Psychic abilities are normally referred to as clairs. They include clairvoyance, clairsentience, and claircognizance. However, there are other psychic abilities that you may have, such as telepathy or energy healing.
A spiritual awakening will typically wake up these psychic abilities that are hidden within us, so it is important to know the different types of psychic abilities and how they can help you on your life journey!
Sign #21: Your Physical Senses are Stronger
Even though a spiritual awakening happens mostly in the soul, it can also really impact our physical body.
When we are awakening, our five physical senses will become much more intense, and we have a heightened awareness of our own body and how it interacts with the physical world around us.
Every touch, sound, and smell seems a bit more stronger than it did before, and we might feel as if we are seeing the world through new eyes. Colors and images appear to be much more vivid.
Sign #22: You Will Meet Spiritual Teachers
When we go through a spiritual awakening, our soul is much more active and in tune with the spirits around us. This means that, if you are going through a spiritual awakening, you may meet spiritual teachers or people who are going to be significant in your life.
Now, these spiritual teachers don’t have to be a part of an institution or a system. We can find spiritual teachers in friends and mentors that we meet in day-to-day life. If you feel drawn to someone new for an inexplicable reason, it may be because your soul is calling to them.
Open up and see what you can learn from them!
Sign #23: Becoming Aware of Your Own Personal Power
Being spiritually awake means that you are more aware of who you are and the skills you have. You will begin to realize that you have the ability to manifest and create, sending intentions out into the world.
We all have incredible personal power within us, and sometimes we forget this. We have the ability to connect our power to the power of the universe and manifest our hopes and dreams.
A spiritual awakening means that we understand the power we have to create our own reality.
Sign #24: You Connect With Your Spirit Guides
We all have spirit guides, even if we don’t know it yet! Some are with us throughout our entire lives, such as our guardian angels or our spirit animals. Others may only appear when we need them.
When we wake up spiritually, we are more in tune with higher realms of existence and different vibrational frequencies.
This means that we are able to connect with our spirit guides, allowing them to help us on our journey in life.
Sign #25: You Realize Your True Path in Life
A major sign that you are having a spiritual awakening is if you have realized your true path in life.
For some people, this can be a sudden realization. In a flash, everything just starts to make sense. You know what you want to be in life, what you want to do, and what path you should go down.
Sometimes, this realization can take time. It is important to work with your spiritually, so your soul can guide you towards your true purpose in life.
