13 Spiritual Awakening Signs (Which Ones Have You Experienced?)

by Alan Young

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 13 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!

13 Signs You’re Having 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).

Or like Esther Hicks does with Abraham (probably the best book on the law of attraction).

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!
