What I want to share with you this time has nothing to do with the theme of this blog, but I feel I need to share what I am going through right now, if there are others out there experiencing the same thing, and may feel a bit lost in the process.
How Many Out There Had Their
What do I mean with Spiritual Awakening? Well, let me explain it from my perspective, complimented with some good information I found during my own research trying to figure things out.
My awakening started for real about 3 years ago and have now escalated tenfold. Ever since I was a little girl I have been aware of the spirit world existing around us and how they are trying to make themselves recognized from time to time.
I remember having my first spirit encounter when I was 5-6 years old. It was not frightening in any sense, just a bit strange, and the incident has stuck with me like it was yesterday.
I had just laid myself down and snuggled up against my parents in their big bed. I was always sneaking down to them at night because I was terrified of darkness, the noises that seemed louder at night, and the feeling of being watched by someone you could not see. Sleeping between mom and dad made me feel safe.
While laying there with my mom to the right and my dad to the left, I suddenly saw my mom standing at the bottom end of the bed watching over me. She was somehow transparent, but I was certain it was my mom, and the whole incident felt comforting and peaceful.
I remember turning my head to the right just to double check what I already knew. My mom was laying besides me sleeping and snoring, but at the same time she was standing watching over me at the end of the bed.
I remember thinking that it was a bit odd, but it did not scare me. After a while the version of mom standing next to the bed disappeared, and I did not really think more about this incident back then. I mean, I was just a child and could not really get my head around the experience anyway.
Although, now when getting older and thinking back on this experience, I am convinced that it was my Guardian Angel taking the shape of my mom, to not scare me.
When in my teens, I repressed a lot of my spirit encounters, or did not wish to talk about them.
There are so many hormone related stuff going on in your body, and you just think about “fitting in” – having the right jeans brand, hair style and so forth.
Also, what would your classmates and friends say if you told them you are seeing “ghosts” (I do not like the word ghost, since they really are humans in spirit form, but it is a common description for many) from time to time?!
No, I did not wish to find out their reactions.
Especially, coming from Sweden where people are not overly spiritual. Do not get me wrong, of course parts of the population in Sweden are believers, but it seemed to be more of the non-believers around where I was located.
Also, my dad is strictly left brained and only believes in the Science. Everything has a logical and rational explanation according to him.
My mom is somewhere in the middle. In fact, she experienced a scary “ghost” happening with me while we were in Spain on vacation, but after talking to dad and receiving a rational lecture, she brain-washed herself thinking it was just a bad dream.
What I have come to understand during my Spiritual Awakening is that it is okay that some people do not believe, or have not gotten there YET. It is okay that some people believe I am crazy when sharing my experiences. I get the occasional look; “that girl has seriously gone bunkers”. My response back (in thought of course) is slight variations of: “Oh boy, you do not know ANYTHING and jeeeze you are losing out on some cool stuff!”
We are all on different awakening levels, since we are all on different journeys in life, and also have different missions. Some has already tuned in with the Universe and its higher forces (among many, but the most evident, the Divine Creator or home source that many call; God), some will awaken later in life, some will not.
It all depends on your personality, experience, surroundings, and how sensitive you are to other frequencies, I believe. For me, it took to move across the world to awaken what I already somewhat knew, and start trusting the process.
I met a man, already awaken, by a coincidence (remember, there are really no coincidences and this you will get to experience more and more during the awakening process) who turn out to become an important piece of the puzzle for me, and who also kept reminding me that I am NOT crazy with everything that is going on. I will tell you more about my own awakening experiences in a bit.
He, (I need to keep him anonymous for his safety revealing a lot of what is “really going on” in this world or earth existence, and other conspiracy theories online – of course not under his real name) is now a good friend, and someone I can share my new knowledge with, without judgement.
He has already experienced what I am going through, and reminds me to put aside my fear that sometimes is lurking around the corner. Fear is the worst state to be in, since it pushes you down to a very low vibration, which is also a weapon to control humanity (more about this in another blog post).
With fear you cannot evolve and grow. I wish you could all meet my friend. What he has to share from his experiences is incredible.
The woman I was first put together with through airbnb.com (in other words, by the Universe) when looking for a place to rent for my vacation stay, before moving to Miami, has also played an important role in my awakening process.
» Side note: If you have been thinking of becoming a host with airbnb, check out my recent article:
She is an amazing woman with such a good heart, who has been connected to Angels, and other Spirit Beings for years. She opened up my beliefs in something bigger that is always there guiding and helping us.
Also the fact that I felt, and still feel, that she sincerely always believes in my experiences, and prays for me in the process.
We are still meeting every week to share our awakening process, together with some other awakened people. It is one of the highlights of the week.
First, let me share some signs and symptoms when going through a spiritual awakening.
Signs Of Spiritual Awakening –
As we open the gateway into the higher energies of the new paradigm, you will notice an increase in energy as well as various symptoms that manifest physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually within your personal reality.
During the process of a Spiritual Awakening you will feel as if your life and belief system have turned completely upside down.
What Is Kundalini Energy?
To give you the short version, Kundalini is a type of energy that sits dormant in the first chakra, at the base of the spine. This energy is released during orgasm through the second chakra, as the body attempts to create a child.
During life-threatening situations, the kundalini energy is often released. This is how people suddenly have the superhuman strength to save themselves, or a loved one.
Kundalini is also called the “serpent” and is described as a snake moving up the spine. The kundalini rises from the base of the spinal column, all the way to the top of the head, where the thousand-petaled-lotus chakra is located.
When kundalini reaches the seventh chakra with its entire power, this spiritual energy develops its full majestic force in the form of enlightenment.
15 Signs You Are Having An Awakening
#1. Emotional Upheaval
Also called, “the bipolar roller coaster of your emotions”. This is where you will experience the extreme polarity of emotions, moving from euphoria to depression, as if you feel like your emotions are completely out of your control.
This is the result of your hormones changing through your endocrine system. One minute you will feel on top of the world, and the next you will encounter deep waves of emotion that may lead to tears, and the feeling of being depressed.
#2. Feeling Lost/Confused/Identity Crisis
This is not just a feeling of loneliness, it is a feeling of confusion about what is the truth, what is real. You start exploiting that what you have been indoctrinated with all your life, is not true.
You start seeing that we are living in a Matrix that is built to control humankind with fear, and you now understand that it is so much more to life. You start questioning the whole “running in the hamster wheel system“, and start thinking about what is really important in life, important to you!
It becomes not only hard to relate to others, but there is a deep sadness when everyone around you no longer understands you. You may develop a deep fear of the fact that you cannot deal with reality, as everyone around you is still in illusion.
As your frequency shifts, your interests and relationships will change, you attract what you are after all.
Your old friendships and relationships will fall away for more soulful aligned relationships. This is a dark time, but that is positive in form, this is where the Ego starts losing its bearings over your consciousness
What Is The Matrix?
Here is a great video clip that explains the Matrix, and how to exit from it, that I highly recommend watching. It will speed up the awakening process even further.
#3. Feeling/Seeing Energy And Vibrations
The doctor tells you, your eye sight is normal, but you are coming home perplexed as to why these orbs of light do not seem to disappear from your vision…
Our world IS ENERGY. Everything is made of energy, and once we start awakening, our senses become heightened into seeing beyond ordinary realities.
You start seeing and feeling energy around yourself, objects, and others. Orbs of light within the peripheral vision, light and color flashes, energy fields coming out around trees, and other objects.
You are also experiencing tingling, or vibrating sensations, from head to toe (especially on top of the head), feeling warmth in the hands or feet, and you may also experience a feeling of being touched while laying in bed.
#4. Increased Intuition/Psychic Abilities
For some reason you just knew the car was going to come over into your lane without signaling before it actually happened.
You start becoming very sensitive to other people’s emotions, and can feel the heaviness after a fight when walking into a room you have never been.
What was once known as paranormal activity has now became a part of your everyday life.
Synchronicities, or patterns, become too hard to ignore. You start predicting events before they occur. You may also embody the essence of telepathy – just knowing what others are thinking before they say it.
More signs of psychic abilities are; precognitive dreaming, channeling, developing a deep empathy towards people, and putting yourself inside their own shoes as if you are becoming them, “inner knowing”, or the more common terms: Clairvoyance, Clairsentience, Clairaudience, Clairscentist, Clairgustant, Claircognizance etc.
#5. Zero Tolerance For Lower Energy
You feel drained, you cannot stomach certain people anymore, and being around them brings you down even further. There is an innate desire to interact with “like-minded” people and healthy relationships.
You simply cannot tolerate lower vibrational environments, duality behavior, or toxic unhealthy relationships any longer.
#6. Clear Communication With Your Higher Self/Mind
You find yourself talking to yourself, or just in general you feel more in tune with listening to the silence. You feel a desire to speak with this “inner voice” and opening up the third eye for spiritual guidance.
Many awakened people are experiencing an actual meeting, and/or are communicating with their Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels this way. This is also the frequency where you can speak to spirits, deceased loved ones, our star family, and various other Beings.
Channeling is becoming more innate and natural to us, as we open ourselves and are becoming a receptive channel to the Spirit world, and the Divine source.
#7. Moments Of Euphoria
Once awakened, you begin to feel more at peace with yourself and your reality. This creates moments of bliss and euphoria, by realizing that you are never alone.
You always have Divine guidance, you just have to ask for it and let it in.
#8. Different Reality Jumps
You begin to feel as if you are in a different reality, or dual realities. As the dimensions are merely states of consciousness we begin to experience a changing perception from 3D to 4D thinking into 5D feeling of the heart center.
Our consciousness is ready for higher understanding, and to enter the new triad of 5D-6D-7D, and beyond.
#9. Out Of Body Experiences/Astral Projection
This can either be accidental, or from a desire to leave the body, as if you need to trigger an out-of-body experience to gather information, and explore your consciousness further.
When we become more aware, our connection to other worlds is greatly increased and we are able to tap into the astral world easier than ever before. You may also be doing more dream work, or work in the astral planes, unconsciously as you sleep.
#10. Frequent Headaches/Central Forehead Pain
Since everything is connected through energy we can go through points of illness, aches, or general discomfort where the energy releases itself and heals.
This can manifest as; pressure around the forehead, temples back of head, or anywhere connecting to the sinuses. This is a result of the Crown Chakra expanding, as well as the Pineal/Pituitary gland opening, and releasing energy.
#11. Ringing In The Ears
Ringing in the ears when Spirits are close is a common symptom that many who are in the early stages of Spiritual Awakening are experiencing.
Often, this can be confused with Tinnitus, but people going through this have found, when getting their hearing checked, that they are completely healthy. This can manifest as hearing tones of frequency, ringing, or buzzing within the ears, at random times.
#12. Natural Spiritual High
Sometimes this can feel like a blissful euphoria that merely comes over you in waves. Other times it can be compared to feeling “stoned”, even without exposure to drugs.
It is here you can feel your vibrations increase at a tenfold. Some, even say it can feel as if they are getting flashbacks into a drug trip, or a distinct feeling they are tripping when they are completely sober.
In actuality, this is because we are then very connected to the Spirit world. Especially once awakened, it is much easier to tap into these subtle currents, and higher vibrations, because they do exist within all human beings.
This phenomena is also explained as Kundalini rising. We are all born with an active Kundalini, but unfortunately we tend to suppress it because “society” tells us that it is not real.
When the Kundalini energy gets activated again – often done by yoga, meditation, LSD trips, or by visiting Yoga gurus who can share this wonderful state – we can experience a state of Nirvana, and possible reach total enlightenment.
#13. Changes In Diet/Wanting To Eat More Clean
Suddenly, you have a strange craving for vegetables and raw food when you used to hate it growing up. What is going on you may think?
Well, when our consciousness shifts our energy changes, and with all change we begin to oscillate towards different vibrations than our past experiences. We get sensitive to, and want to eat, what we need in order to heal.
This can mean that you need more grounding foods, such as meat and protein, or that you need more light foods to detox your energy with fruits and vegetables.
No matter what you read, truly listen to what the body needs and craves as you heal your energy. Your health is important as the body is truly the “temple of the soul”.
Listen to your body and the healing energy will follow.
#14. Body Temperature Changes
Having hot flashes in the middle of winter may seem a bit strange for just about anyone who is not menopausal, but that is exactly what it can feel like!
It literally feels as if a rapid energy surge goes through you causing your body temperature to change abruptly, from being very cold to extremely hot, in the blink of an eye.
This is usually due to the change in energy from the body, a strange feeling to encounter, and it passes just as quickly as it came.
#15. Looking Younger
As you clear emotional issues, release limiting beliefs and heavy baggage from the past, you are actually becoming lighter.
Your frequency is oscillating higher than before, and you begin to feel not only healthier, but more lively than ever before. You love yourself, appreciate life more, and have a general peace of mind about reality.
Carrying the world’s troubles on the shoulders will make you age and wrinkle faster, but when you begin to resonate with your peace-full higher self, you will stay younger looking, and shine as you are beautiful inside and out.

My Own Experience Of Spiritual Awakening/Kundalini Rising
Let me start with saying: Oh My..! I would never thought that a spiritual awakening would be this intense. I feel completely exhausted from all bodily symptoms, but totally wonderful, peace-full, and HAPPY.
The understanding that there is more to life is so mind-blowing and uplifting. There is no death, only other dimensions and lifetimes, which is extremely comforting for me that was scared of dying when I was younger.
I did have a moment when I was totally terrified of what was going on with me, laying in bed feeling like I was being touched/worked on from my feet all up my head.
Sometimes the energy vibrations from the Spirit Beings were so strong that I could not move my arms. Of course, this experience was terrifying at first.
I also felt strong currents of electricity around my body when I was coming close to other energy frequencies (Spirit Beings/Angels).
Sometimes the electricity was so strong that it pinched me quite hard so it hurt.
I could also get the feeling of heat, like someone was holding a lighter close to my skin on different parts of my body.
This was a bit uncomfortable and scary at first as well.
Now after getting the information that it is my Guardian Angels and Guides coming to communicate, comfort and work on me, I totally trust the process, and feel blessed by their Divine guidance.
Note, that this is coming from a person, who never been religious. My personal believe is that religion is used as a tool to brainwash and control people (although, this is another discussion).
I have never read the Bible, only parts of it that were forced on us in school.
I only had my own Spiritual believes and experiences of Spirit encounters and happenings, such as; my things mysteriously moving around (the most peculiar is when my makeup is being thrown in the trash – happens now and then), lamps lit up or being shut off by themselves, alarms going off in the middle of the night from alarm clocks I do not have, or an occasional fire alarm for no reason, vases getting thrown on the floor shattering into pieces, sounds of doors slamming and things falling from shelves, and so forth.
The Spirits have worked hard for me to start recognizing them, and not just push all paranormal activities away, thinking this cannot be happening.
Keep The Kundalini Rising Going – Please!
The symptom that is most striking and fascinating this far, is symptom #12. Natural Spiritual High.
OH WOW! MY GOSH!
How can I explain this… With the risk of sounding totally crazy, every single day my Guardians’ put me in such a high state that I feel totally stoned.
I have never used drugs, but have gone through a number of serious surgeries, when the doctor has given me morphine straight into my veins. If you know, that feeling is incredible, and is exactly what I feel on a daily basis when the Spirits are touching me.
Please, please… keep it going!
Of course not all the time, that would be exhausting, but in periods throughout the day and night. Sometimes at night it lasts for hours, and sometimes only some seconds.
I feel completely calm and peaceful, like there are no worries at all. The world starts spinning even that it does not make me dizzy.
I feel light and warm, especially in my feet and legs. I sometimes feel like I am flying, or floating.
I also feel so much love and peace, and start seeing different patterns of colors and glitter, both with my eyes opened and closed.
With my eyes closed, I often see a strong white or pink light, and sometimes also a blue light. The other night I saw waves of pink, yellow and green, like the rainbow.
When I think about it, the same night I noticed that the sky had the colors of the rainbow during sunset. It was stunning, and I remember regretting I did not bring my camera.
I get wave after wave of energy rushes that make me smile and feel sooo blissful, so incredible good!
About 2 years ago, I started seeing energy fields, or auras around trees, people, and objects. When I am in this state of high vibration, the color auras intensify drastically around all objects. The colors get so strong and vivid.
I received the information that “they” (my Guardians and Guides) are activating my Kundalini energy, so I am probably experiencing the state of Nirvana when they are around.
I hope they will keep visiting me forever, putting me in this natural high state. In fact, if they leave, I will beg them to come back. I would not want to disconnect to this wonderful feeling, and the feeling of being connected to something bigger than life on this earth plane.
I am getting visions of all kinds of things related to the life journey I am on and the people in it. I get scenarios sent to me before they actually happen more and more often.
The other day, while driving on the highway, I got into a slight right turn and instantly got a vision that the car next to me to the right was coming into my left lane without signaling. A second later, it actually happened.
Because I was already prepared, I could put on the brakes and avoid a bad accident from happening.
I thank my Guardian Angels and Guides every day for protecting me, for keeping my dogs, my family and friends safe, and for guiding me to stay on the right track.
This was noting I used to do, ever!
I was not sure I believed in Angels prior to my awakening, but now I know for sure that they do exist, whatever name you want to call them.
We are all connected to the Universe, but some of us have tuned in stronger than others.
I believe we all have a mission in each and every lifetime, and I think I am starting to figure out what is mine.
I have so much more to tell you, but I do not dare to just yet. Let us see further ahead in my Spiritual Awakening what will happen and where I am then, and if I will build up the strength to share more of my experiences with you, dear readers.
I will update with another blog post some months from now, or it may be with my eBook I have started on about my awakening, and share with you my new experiences, and what I have learned from them. I learn new things about life every day now.
I warmly recommend, The Tenth Insight with James Redfiled as a first eye opener to higher vibrations and the evolution of human consciousness:
The book I am reading right now is also super fascinating, and will open up many doors in the awakening process; Reconnective Healing with Eric Pearl:
I hope this post was interesting and may have helped somebody to understand what is going on if experiencing any of these symptoms. You will probably not experience all of them, every awakening process is unique.
You may have something else happening to you that you want to share? Please leave me a comment below and let us help each other in the process of awakening.
Can you imagine a world of awakened people? Wars and other control mechanisms would disappear, and people would live together no matter race or financial status, as one, happily supporting each other.
Much love to you all and thank you for reading!
