Spiritual Awakening Emotional and Physical Symptoms

artwork diagram of human being and DNA

There’s a number of physical symptoms, mood swings, sleep pattern fluctuations, and a multitude of sensations you’ll feel both from the changes the Earth is undertaking, and also from transformations you undergo on a personal level.

Apart from the physical and emotional aspect, I’d also include as “signs” life circumstances and events that generally happen, or may happen, when you awaken. I’ve written a separate article about 8 things that happen to you during awakening.

As a disclaimer, this text isn’t intende to replace professional medical service if you need it, nor is meant to be interpreted as medical advice. You are responsible for your own self-care, and this includes modern-day medicine if and when needed. If you feel the seek qualified medical service for any situation you might be experiencing, please do so.

1. Sleeping Patterns

One of the most common things that can generally occur is your sleeping patterns and rhythms being affected. This may happen either because you naturally change them yourself, or they may change without you knowing why, which can leave you startled. At some point I remember I spontaneously developed the habit of going to sleep at 7 p.m., waking up at 12p.m., staying awake up until around 4 a.m., and then going to sleep again until morning. Now, I’m not suggesting this is “right” or “wrong”, or that it’ll be this way forever, just as an example of a sleeping pattern changing at some point.

By far the most common occurrence is that, if you go to bed at “regular hours” with the expectation of a full night’s sleep, you may wake up once or twice in the middle of the night, and then not be able to sleep for a full hour or so. You may also have more trouble falling asleep, have lighter sleep, and/or have more “troublesome” dreams than usual, dreams whose sensations may last a bit even after you’ve got out of bed.

All of this happens because of the energetic work that’s happening to you on a personal level, and also with Earth as I’ve said. It’s a normal occurrence and normally isn’t cause for concern. The most sensible advice I could give is to adjust to it, and work with the situation, rather than fighting it (which would be a mistake). Additionally you can also voice your intentions aloud, asking Spirit to “slow down” the spiritual work being done, to let you sleep better. Then see how each of your requests changes the situation. As a general guideline you can and should interact with Spirit in this way as often as you want, to get a hang over time of what things you can affect.

2. Dizziness

This one is not a a symptom that occurs often for me, but I felt compelled to include it. Once during the 2011 Easter days I had to stay two full days lying in the couch without doing anything, simply because the motion of shifting my head to the side would sent me into dizziness mayhem – much like when you step out of the roller coaster.

It isn’t necessarily the case everyone can feel things this way, this is intended more of an example of a wacky symptom/situation that occurred to me during the awakening process, related to energy stuff, that went away as swiftly as it came. It helped my partner is a skilled energy reader and knew what was happening. I’m sure I would have freaked out far more if I wasn’t aware of the reasons behind it, and I would have probably made it a much more complicated situation because of it.

3. Temperature Regulation/Sensations

You’re feeling cold. But it’s a warm day. Never mind, you go and grab a sweater. Five minutes later you’re too hot and have to take it off. What’s going on? You may even not know what to wear going to bed at night. You’re cold early in the night and cover yourself up nicely, but in the middle of the night you wake up sweating. And then in the morning you’re freezing cold because you’ve pushed all the blankets aside.

Energy exchange can affect and change your bodily temperature. This is part of the reason all those “cracks” happen around you (see below). When old energy leaves, your body gets colder, and when new energy enters, you get warmer again. It’s just how it is. My advice is, again, working around it. For example, carry around an extra sweater with you. Keep at your bedside a colder/warmer alternative to the clothes you’re thinking of using. And either keep the bed itself dressed on the light side, and you yourself wearing more layers of clothing than normal. That way you can take off your clothes in the middle of the night to cool down if you’re too hot, but without getting uncovered throughout the night. Or, go the other way around: keep the bed clothing warmer, with you using lighter clothing when tucked in.

4. The Passage of Time

This is more related to the workings of Earth, than necessarily to your personal Awakening process. Still, if you’re sensitive to this, you might notice that both a) time is passing by vary rapidly, and maybe b) that there’s more time in each day than before. This is something that, again, relates to the Earth’s energy.

On a side note, time does go faster when you’re having fun, and more slowly when you’re doing something unpleasant, or less meaningful. This effect happens because the only time that counts is Spirit’s. And from Spirit’s point of view, only activities aligned with your Essence, and that your Spirit wishes to do, are worth doing.

5. Mood Swings

You may be more sensitive, more jumpy, less open or tolerant to anything that makes you feel bad, or even less patient towards other people, even (and perhaps especially) with your closest relatives. In a sense this isn’t an “unnatural” thing, since many of the general human-level interactions with others are unbalanced and/or karmic based.

You may wish to exercise moderation with this, so as not to be labeled as an emotional time-bomb, someone who’s always ready to explode on other people. That being said, I want to stress that if anything this effect can actually be turned into a good, healthy thing for you. An increased sensitivity may for example be a process by which you’re healing what you had kept emotionally suppressed. Or be designed to have you be less willing to lose energy with people you shouldn’t be interacting with.

This effect essentially boils down to: you’re more sensitive. And this, in itself, is a positive thing. It’s generally valid that the more spiritually inclined you are the more sensitive you become, and this is most certainly true when you’re fully in the Awakening process. So if you’re tempted to think “why am I being impolite and a bad person” by default, try instead asking if you’re actually right instead. It may a way of your spiritual self reacting to the energy of another person. It may also be your spiritual self asking you to spend some quality time alone, by yourself.

If you want to know when dealing with someone is of a karmic and/or unbalanced nature, a reasonable general indicator is to check if you feel better or worse immediately after dealing with the person.

6. Back/Neck/Body Pains

I hear about this aspect, even if I don’t experience too many weird or uncommon things in this sense. Back pains are supposed to happen, again, because of the shifts that are happening with your body. So if you experience random back, neck, or body pains, this may be the cause. I sometimes have some sudden spikes of stinging pain in my forearms, near the tendons. This is generally a good thing: your energy/healing lines opening up.

What I do experience often, is a pressure in a zone located at the back and bottom of head / top of neck, which for your visual convenience is exactly in the area of the head-plug you see in the Matrix movies. Pressure in this area is generally bad, as it may mean either a concentration of your own negative/karmic thoughts, someone else’s negative thoughts towards you (negative thoughts from others about you, can and will reach you, like an ‘energetic assault’), or even a less-than-benevolent energy trying to sneak in uninvited, such as a negative spirit attachment. Sudden back pain all over your shoulders and upper back might also mean negative attachment. Yes folks, energy isn’t just about Divine Light from Heaven (but it should, and can be).

Pressure in these areas might also just be your guides performing maintenance duty, but regardless, if you feel it, you’re advised to, first, not to freak out, and second, ask out loud your guides for them to clean you in that area with Light, block external energies from attacking you, and help you understand what you need to know or learn in order to stop creating or attracting this situation.

If it doesn’t stop, there are many available simple meditation techniques or cleaning rituals you can perform yourself. This is also valid for any weird pains you have anywhere else. What I generally do is closing my eyes, visualize Light from Spirit coming in, and a giant vacuum cleaner sucking away any thing that’s there, with the guidance of my Higher Self. You can also reach a practitioner of your alignment, if you’re having this persistently.

7. “Crack” Noises Around You


Hey! Did my phone/door/cabinet/wall just broke up by itself? What was that?

This is obviously not a ‘physical symptom’ on your body, but a phenomenon nonetheless. With the increase of (positive) Spiritual energy in your life, and the amount of Light you carry around, you may notice you stuff around stars popping and making cracking noises. You may also mess around with electrical devices, or have other effects on objects. This will happen most frequently when you’re feeling an intense emotion, having an insight or epiphany, meditating, breathing deeply, or simply passing by or standing near the object.

This happens because your own energy is getting stronger and interacts with objects around you. Electric devices, plastic objects, things with springs, and anything that may contract/expand with temperature variations, are specially sensitive to this. Also, your own Spirit Guides may interact with you by making these cracks themselves, for example to validate you when you have a thought they wish to reinforce. Just ask them not to break anything (just kidding).

Also, don’t confuse these cracks make by your own energy, with noises made by accumulated energetic though-forms in the space, or even negative spirits hanging around. These are supposed to be cleaned and go to the Light, respectively. In doubt, ask aloud for Archangel Michael to cleanse your space of any negative energy. And then wait. You own your space and have absolute authority over it, so nothing can be there if you stand your ground and say it aloud, with no dialogue and no compromise: “Just Go, Now”. If you need to, ask for the help of a practitioner of your alignment. Cleansing the energy of spaces is common practice. And there’s lessons to it as well.


Generally speaking, you may develop certain temporary or recurrent illnesses, such as allergies, colds and fevers in a different pattern and frequency, and so on. Any of these might have a certain emotion/experience you’ll want to deal and heal, but they’ll be most likely related to your energetic process. These are often not taken as a glaring “sign” of spiritual awakening, because you may have had similar symptoms before, and so they may often go unnoticed. Until one day you look back and think “oh, so that’s why…”.

Hope I’ve helped in some way. If I remember anything more I’ll add it here. You can also add anything you experience yourself in the comments section. Happy Awakening!
